Live: FA Press Conference

Live From Wembley Stadium is the FA Press Conference in which they will revel their new manager following Mr. Capello's resignation.
FA: Hello and welcome to Wembley Stadium. Today we are going to revel England's new manager.
Reporter: Is it true that you received an application from Harry Redknapp?
FA: No we didn't receive an application from him or any other English managers. So that leaves us with just 3 candidates who are Sir Alex Ferguson, George Graham and Arsene Wenger. I can now tell you that it was a Scottish manager that we gave the job to. The new England manager is George Graham.
Reporter: George welcome to Wembley Stadium. Do you feel the pressure managing England despite being Scottish?
George Graham: Well all new managers feel the pressure when first coming on to the international scene but as you said I will fell the pressure even more due to being Scottish.
Reporter: Will you be making any changes to the squad?
George Graham: Yes I will. In all my squads most of the players will be 25 or under, but I will be including a few older players into the squad. Also I can tell you that I will be making changes to the captaincy.

I turned on my Laptop to look at my E-mails, and I saw an e-mail from Sepp Blatter called Fifa World Rankings. We're 6th in the world. Hopefully we will be higher than 6th by the end of the year.

most of my updates will be in the above style

I had to select a 26 man squad for the friendly match against Hungry. Due to myself saying that most of the players that I would pick for my squad would be 25 or younger, there will be at least 8 players wanting to make their 1st cap for the national team.

Great! 3 days before the game against Hungry. Micheal Dawson has suffered a brusied shien and will have to be removed from the squad. But I've got cover in his postion so I won't be replacing him.

Dude, good luck with England. They're a good side if you play them properly. Won the 2014, 2018 and 2022 World cups with them in FM 10, along with 2012, 2016 and 2020 European championships. Don't know about FM 11 though. Best of luck! :)

In defence Glen Johnson, Ryan Shawcross, John Terry and Leighton Baines. In the centre of midfield Jack Rodwell and Jack Wilshere. On the wings Theo Walcott and Adam Johnson. Up front Andy Caroll and Wayne Rooney. On the bench Alex Smithies, Ashley Cole, Joleon Lescott, Frank Lampard, Aaron Lennon, Gabby Agbonlahor, Kevin Davies, Tom Huddlestone and James Milner

Like your repeating yourself over and over again. Read this, England Story
my last 4 updates have been in that style and what do you mean by repeating myself over and over again

My 1st game as England manager and my 1st win! 4-2. 3-0 up at half time. Despite Ryan Shawcross being sent of we managed to hold on for the win. The man of the match award went to Adam Johnson who had a great game by scoring a goal.

I opened up my laptop to check my emails. I got another email from Sepp Blatter. We're still 6th in the world rankings.

I would say try and make your posts more detailed by like briefly explaining the game, who scored, how, who got sent off, did you appeal, stuff like that. Also, I'll follow your story. I am also doing an England story but with a different theme. So please do follow mine! And great results with Hungary. Hope you do well against Bulgaria and Switzerland

The start of the qualifiers for Euro 2012. I had to decide the starting 11 for the game against Bulgaria. I made 2 changes from the last game with Stevie G replacing Wilshere and Kevin Davies replacing Andy Carroll.

It would be nice to see you using your own tactic rather than JP Woody's one.
But you seem to be doing a good job anyway so keep it up.
