Then I get Offered the Brazil Manager Job, which I of course accept, my first Brazil Match I win 6-0
One thing though which I may be posting in the frustration thread if it all goes through. Chairman is in talks of a takeover and the tossers have said they're going to appoint a new manager if the talks go well. I think I'll be done if they do that >>
Pato joins City in record-breaking Premier League signing
It has been completed. Alexandre Pato, the world-renowned striker now now-formerly played for Italian Serie A outfit A.C. Milan, has made his sensational move to the City of Manchester Stadium for a record-breaking sum of £52million. The news, in which has excited Man City fans globally, has now seen a huge windfall in shirt sales and merchandise, not only in the club's official megastore, but also online on it's website and on other sports retailer sites.
The 29-year-old who now joins fellow South Americans in Gonzalo Higuain, who joined the club last year from Real Madrid in a £15million transfer away from the Bernabeu and Abel Hernandez, the Uruguayan forward who signed from Italian side Inter Milan for £34million, in it's ranks ahead of the race against Manchester United for the Premier League title.
Pato signed on the dotted line for the Premier League runner-ups a few days ago for a deal that sees the Brazilian now earn a huge £165,000 wage, including two £16.5k bonuses in appearances and goals, a 25% yearly wage rise and a £100million fee release clause, all running for the next four years until the end of the 2021-22 season.

Beating Chelsea 5-2 with Tottenham in the English League Cup Semi-Finals. the thing that made it most impressive or was was that 19-yo Neymar scored all 5 goals on his debut for me. This second was the best though, he dribbling it from mid-field jinxing past Alex bringing it into the box & scores. Beautiful counter attack.
