Here is my first attempt at a FM Story so I hope you all enjoy it and leave some feedback and how I can improve this story
After a mid-table finish for Brighton last season, Tony Bloom brought Gus into his office for a talk about the performance of last season. This conversation concluded as Bloom sacked Gus Poyet on the spot who then ended up going on an outrage about how he didn't have enough time to fix a squad together. Our correspondent caught up with Tony Bloom, the chairman of Brighton & Hove Albion.
BBC: Mr. Bloom, what is your reasoning behind the sacking of Gus Poyet?
TB: I give credit to Gus for turning Brighton around last season but he didn't do enough in my opinion. I was hoping for playoffs last season but will definitely be expecting promotion from the new manager.
BBC: Who will be the next Brighton manager?
TB: There are a few names in my head at the moment. Andy Ritchie and Brian Horton are both interested in the vacancy and there are another few who I think will suit the job.
BBC: What is your opinion on Gus' outburst after you sacked him?
TB: There wasn't a more unprofessional thing to do than what he did. I can understand his anger but to let it all out like that is unbelievable.
BBC: Thanks for your time, Mr. Bloom.
TB: Your welcome.

Who the Forrest?
The biggest shock of football management has happened. With big names such as Andy Ritchie and Brian Horton linked with the Brighton job, local businessman Pete Forrest has been approached by Tony Bloom and has become the new Brighton manager. Tony Bloom has given Pete Forrest a transfer budget of 700k but in his first press conference, Forrest stated that he is a wheeler-dealer manager and looks for the bargains.
Tony Bloom, in a recent press conference, said 'I have caught out many Brighton fans with this surprise appointment but I am good friends with Pete's boss and he was always going to be the manager.'
Pete Forrest said 'I am quite shocked about becoming the manager of a team in League 1 and I am expected to get them into the playoffs/promotion and will do my best to try and fill those expectations.'
