View attachment 472676

Hello all if any of you followed my Fulham story where i won the Premier League in my first season and my Portsmouth story which i have got bored of so decided i would do one more story before FM14 is released and i made a poll yesterday on what team to be and the winner was Blackburn Rovers so i will be taking over Blackburn and hope to gain promotion to the Premier League at the first time of asking and i really want to develop Jordan Rhodes into a beast as i love him in real life but never used him on FM13 but that is about to change i have already played upto November but didnt know i was gonna be doing a story so unfortunately i won't be able to show you the tables from August and September, Sorry. I'm not gonna do all the manager sacking, Press conference and hiring thing im just gonna get straight into it.

Pre-season & Transfers

Transfers in

Ross McCormack
View attachment 472675

This is a player i have always admired in real life and in game i love him as a player and he is gonna be partnering Rhodes up top he is player im not expecting to score 10,15 goals a season he is gonna be Rhodes little feeder man and i reckon they will be working like clock work in a few weeks.

Tony Watt
View attachment 472672

This man is gonna be more of a man for the future as Ross is 26 and Watt isnt gonna be chucked straight into the team and he will be gradually eased in, my friend and awesome story writer
H4ND 0F G0D (check him out) has had him many times before most successfully at Tranmere and Norwich but i really like the look of him.

Craig Noone
View attachment 472671

A very talented young chap again he probably wont be a starter with, Rochina, Pedersen and Hazard but he is A very good player when needed.

Thorgan Hazard
View attachment 472667

Yet again a young chap but he looks class and will definitely getting game time, also we have completed an affiliation with Chelsea so that should be good to bring in a few Chelsea lads and a bit of cash.

Neal Maupay
View attachment 472666

Of course i had to sign this man, everyone knows who he is and unlike many others i wont be playing him in my first team he will be playing in the Under 18's as he is only 16 and i may even loan him out.

Ryan Gauld
View attachment 472664

Another 16 year old lad im definitely looking for the future and there is a lot of great youth coming through and this man joins us from Dundee and i am looking to give him a bit of first team football despite his age.

Goalscorers: Rhodes x3, Etuhu, Pedersen and King

Blackburn 1-1 Yeovil
View attachment 472553

A very disappointing result was expecting a win the very early sending off didn't help so i suppose a point wasn't too bad.

Capital One Cup 2nd Round

Barnsley 1-2 Blackburn

Goalscorers: Rhodes, Dunn

Doncaster 0-0 Blackburn
View attachment 472502

A very frustrating game we should have won by 2 or 3 goals but we couldn't finish and we left the Keepmoat with just a point.

Goalscorers: Not available

Blackburn 3-1 Wigan

A quality result against a under performing Wigan side but still a good result, Rhodes and Watt scoring or as H4ND 0F G0D calls them Shearer and Sutton. ;)

Your going well mate, last month is pretty good, went unbeaten.

You did well in the market too, sold more than what you bought so atleast you've made a profit for the Prem when you get there ;)

Good luck with your season mate..

Have a few more updates up by the way on my story(Leeds one) if you want to have a look, feel free :)

Poor result was expecting at least a draw and ya know what ?

Two 3-0 wins in a row and Rhodes pickes up another 2 goals, he is having an amazing season.

Nott'm Forest 2-1 Blackburn
Goalscorers: Watt
View attachment 472421

Shame our great run had to come to an end as we dominated the game but just couldn't finish and they got a very soft penalty to put them two up and that made it hard to try and get back into it.


Capital One Cup 4th Round

Blackburn 0-1 Manchester United
Goalscorers: Not Available
View attachment 472415

Fantastic performance from the lads, maybe we deserved a point or a draw at least to take it to a replay but we couldn't score and RVP's early goal sealed the win and unfortunately Jordan Rhodes hit the bar twice late on in the second half.


View attachment 472410

So we're going strong in the league only 3 points off Sheffield Wednesday and hopefully we can push on from there and maybe win the league.... maybe !


Player Of The Month

Jordan Rhodes
View attachment 472408

Could only be this man or MGP but im giving it to Jordan because if it wasn't for him we would certainly not be in the position we are in.

6 Goals in 6 Games


That is all for this month next up November, i'll try get another update out today but we'll have to wait and see !

Thank you for reading post your thoughts !

Bolton 0-4 Blackburn
Goalscorers: Hanley, McCormack x2, Rhodes
View attachment 472353

Oooooshhh !!! total domination we destroyed our rivals and McCormack picked up 2 great goals and we are getting better and better.

Blackburn 2-0 Sheffield Wednesday
Goalscorers: Rhodes, McCormack
View attachment 472352

Another great result as Wednesday were top of the league before this game and the Rhodes and McCormack partnership is really starting to work.

B'Mouth 0-4 Blackburn
Goalscorers: MGP, Rhodes x3
View attachment 472349

We can't stop scoring at the moment, Rhodes is starting to run away with the top scorer award and he scored a perfect hat-trick, a left foot, right foot and header.

Reading 2-2 Blackburn

Goalscorers: Hanley, Rhodes
View attachment 472347

A average result, Hanley continues his goalscoring form for a defender and Rhodes scores yet again but former Blackburn man Mauro Formica scored which was frustrating.

Blackburn 3-0 Leicester
Goalscorers: Hanley, McCormack and Rhodes
View attachment 472345

Again Hanley scores very pleased with his recent form and im delighted with the result against such a strong team.

Blackburn 0-0 Huddersfield
Goalscorers: Not available
View attachment 472344

A very poor game not many chances and very disappointed in Lowe to get sent off so late on,
Its a real Lowe for him haha ;).

View attachment 472343

3 Points clear now and we are getting better and better every month and fingers crossed that continues and Rhodes can keep up his form.

Player Of the Month

Grant Hanley

View attachment 472342

BEAST ! not only has he been a rock at the back he has shown he has the ability to score too.

3 Goals in 6 Games


That is November over and done with its nearly Christmaaaaaas !!!!!

Leeds 2-4 Blackburn
Goalscorers: Rhodes, Cairney and Watt x2
View attachment 471761

Class performance, one of the best this season there is no way they should've scored 2 we battered them i reckon 5 or 6-0 would have been a fair result but we got the win and thats is the main thing.

M'boro 1-2 Blackburn
Goalscorers: Rhodes x2
View attachment 471760

Just managed to win this with a late second from Rhodes to continue our awesome form.

Blackburn 2-2 B'ham

Very frustrating result as when you look at the stats we sould have thrashed them but we just couldn't take our chances even Jordan Rhodes.

View attachment 471755
There ya go, very frustrating to watch but you have some of them games i suppose.

Millwall 0-2 Blackburn
Goalscorers: Rhodes, McCormack
View attachment 471754

Great to see Rhodes and McCormack both scoring again and they seem to be really working well together like Cole and Yorke or for H4ND 0F G0D Shearer and Sutton ;).

Brighton 0-0 Blackburn
Goalscorers: Not available
View attachment 471746

Again a game where we dominated but again a game where we didnt take our chances but this is going to have to change if we are going to get promoted.

Yeovil 1-3 Blackburn
Goalscorers: Rhodes, Watt and Rochina
View attachment 471742

A pretty good result but one i would of expected and an unbeaten month.

View attachment 471739

Looking great so far 4 points clear with a game in hand and only 20 games to go and then we could be premier league again !!!

Player Of The Month

Scott Dann
View attachment 471734

Didnt score this month but is our captain and has been a tank at the back and will definitely be good enough for the Prem if we do get there.


That is 2012 over and done with and hopefully 2013 will be as good

Thank you for reading and hope you enjoyed

Mar 15, 2012
what tatic are you using to be doing so well
its on the first page. And i dont find being top of the Championship with a team like Blackburn is an achievement you get like £3M and have plenty of cracking players who are good enough for the prem like Robinson, Dann, Olsson, Rochina, Pedersen and Rhodes but yeah its on the first page anyway :)

Ipswich 2-3 Blackburn
Goalscorers: Lowe, Rhodes, Rochina
View attachment 471394

Blackburn 3-1 Doncaster

Thank you and have a great weekend
