View attachment 331294So, Brendan Rodgers goes to pastures new at Liverpool, leaving Swansea managerless. Me, Johnny Johnson, a nobody from Stockport, gets offered the job, because I just got my local pub team into an actual semi-pro league. I'm always up for a challenge, and seeing the handsome 27 grand a week Mr Jenkins put on the table, I bit his hand off accepting the offer. So there it is. I got to work quickly, outlining my 5 year plan:

I rate I can do it if The Sun doesn't hound me out of my job by Tuesday. Updates to come soon!

Don't really like the whole "got my local pub team to a semi-pro league so they hired me" deal. It really isn't that realistic. I mean would that ever happen irl? Probably not. Just my advice really, I never did a story myself but I've read a lot of them.

August

Swansea 2-1 Spurs
Taarabt (pen), Walters

Sunderland 0-3 Swansea
Walters (2), Taraabt

Swansea 2-1 Colchester (Capital One Cup)
Shechter, Lamah

Fair to say the new signings paid off. Taraabt has been sensational, scoring twice and assisting twice in the process. I never beat Spurs on FM13 so that was brilliant to get the win, although we were quite lucky, as Michael Dawson was dismissed and Huddlestone missed a pen. An awesome start, can't wait to push on.

Yeah, but starting on the Sunday league player level is part of the challenge of FM, how else would you explain it?

Well you could have posed as an ex-player and put your reputation up to like national. But if you wanna go for sunday league level that's your choice.

Make the formating more interesting. It just looks a bit too bland. Add more info and maybe your own opinions about the matches. Some good examples are Klippybo's stories.

Premier League

Swansea 2-2 Man City
Walters (2)

Cheslea 2-1 Swansea
Dyer

West Brom 3-0 Swansea

Extremely annoyed as I had to replay the WBA game after my computer updated just after game having saved at Chelsea game. Won the first 2-0 so that was irritating. Other than that, not too bad, good point against City and we were unlucky against Chelsea. Arsenal away next in the BPL, so not too positive about picking up points.

Capital One Cup
