Johnson Causes A Stir In Latest Interview

Matthew Johnson is Liverpool's latest manager, and he sure is making himself known! He recently caused a stir in his latest interview after making a controversial comment!

"While some managers are famous for their hands on approach, others maintain a more reserved manner with their players. How do you see your management style?"

"I am going to tell the players what I think about them, it they're tw*ts, they'll know!"

Johnson then walked out answering no more questions, this leaves many questions, the biggest one being is Matthew Johnson being to offensive? Or is it just to make is players scared? Will it work? These questions will be answered in due time!

I hope that you go through the end. I'm Portuguese (I support Benfica) and one of my favorite teams is Liverpool (maybe the 2nd team).
Many people start stories here with them and didn't finish. They deserve so much better, even for the great supporters they have ( I don't wanna offend anyone...).

Best of luck mate. I'll be follow :)

Johnson Makes First Signing!

View attachment 332832
Controversial Liverpool manager Matthew Johnson has made his first signing under his control. He has signed 18 year old left back Jetro Willems for £9m, using the money he received from selling previous left back Jose Enrique for £10m!

"I am very please to have made this signing, Jetro is a great young lad who is going to be one of the best left backs in the Premier League in 5 years time!"

Johnson's Second Signing Leaves People Scratching Their Heads!
View attachment 332834

Matthew Johnson has made his second signing as Liverpool boss, picking up Zakaria Bakkali for a compensation fee of £600k! Many fans a re wondering why he is buying inexperienced players and not reliable quality players.

"I am not going to waste my money on 28 year old players who will lose their flair after about 3 to 4 seasons, it's ****** ridiculous, these young players will last for about 10 years or more, which will save money in the long run! I'm not going to spend £25m on a 29 year old who within 3 years will probably play 2 games a season and get payed £100k a ****** week!"

Matthew Johnson has made a very sly comment about Sir Alex Ferguson's Van Persie purchase, I don't believe that will be the last of what you hear from these two!

Johnson Signs Unknown 16 Year Old... Where Have We Heard That Before?
View attachment 332841

Matthew Johnson has made his third signing of the season, buying Tristan Berghuis for a compensation fee of £500k! We've never heard of him, doesn't sound promising, but what does the boss have to say?

"I am very pleased with this signing, he is a great young lad with lots of potential, I think he's going to be a great player in years to come!"

He seems to being saying they'll be great in years to come a lot lately, but what about now, what about great players now, I don't think I'm the only person that doesn't have much hope for Liverpool under Johnson, maybe he'll prove us wrong though!

Johnson Holds Press Conference On Latest Signings!

Liverpool Boss Matthew Johnson has called a press conference to show off his latest signings!

"Hello people of the press, I have called this press conference to show to all of you my latest signings! My first signings was Jetro Willems from PSV, he was signed for £9m and I believe he will play a key part in our season! He has already made a name for himself in Holland, and will take the Premier League by storm!"

View attachment 332853

"My second signing was Zakaria Bakkali, he is only 16 and the talent he possess is just mind blowing, he is a truly incredible talent and will be one of the Premier League all time greats!"

View attachment 332856

"My third and final signing is Tristan Borghuis, who is a 16 year old with a 26 year old's mentality, he is very modest and always trains hard, he is a model example for other young teenagers aspiring to become professional footballers! He is going to become a great play maker and will be a key player for our team!"

View attachment 332859

"Finally, I would like to add that there will be no trouble for these 3 players to speak to other players as they have all came from PSV, so they already know each other and can definitely come to each other for help. They can also of course come to me for advice and support as well. Thank you, that will be all I am saying."

I have to ask myself, who, in their right mind, would want to play for a manager with such an arrogant disposition. I've only read through to end of the thread in the hope that the attitude would change. Alas it seems as though this is not the case. I foresee many problems for you with player morale & team cohesion (unless you bring magic (FMRTE) into the equation)). I won't be wasting anymore time on this particular thread. Pity, Liverpool are my English team of choice.

It is only a joke, to make the story more interessting, don't worry, in the game I don't act as bad and it is changing, it was just to spic things up a little bit. Stay tuned and you will see :D

Also, I use little news reports and interviews to make it a little bit more intersting than just reading results over and over again, I tried to do it to make it more enjoyable but if people don't like it, then I will change it :)
