These are my views only and although the writing is not as good as some, This took me ages and the stories I have picked I absolutely love reading, there are other fantastic stories too and I hope you all like it.

Braga: Over The Hill



When unknown Manager Armando Azevado took over at Braga, it was deemed a surprise announcement and he immediately wanted to win the title. After a bunch of signings including Diarra for £26m, the inexperienced manager then had a good start to the league. The graphics use in this story is brilliant and the content is always really good with this writer.

The information in this story is also really good. I could not think of anything else that could be improved and this will surely be a sotm contender in months to come.

Make sure you read to find out if he can lead Braga to win the League.

David Healy; Hardboiled [Northern Ireland LLM]



David Healy has moved back to Northern Ireland for a shot at Lower League Management when David Healy retired from football after a injury playing for Bury and then he got drunk and woke up in the harbour, where he was found by his childhood coach Dee Heron. The coach then mentioned that Killyleagh, a amateur club were about to go pro and Healy was convinced to join them after other clubs did not want him, but Healy was then propositioned by Rangers, when it was revealed The Gers were joining the English Premier League and that is where we got to in ths story.

There is brilliant content in this story and the way it is set out makes it very easy to read and follow. The use of Graphics are also good and people seem to like it and it attracts a lot of views. This is one story I think we should keep an eye on because it has the potential to get a brilliant review in future.

Mourinho: The 15 Year Plan



When Jose Mourinho revealed his 15 year plan, it looked like it had finished before it had even started when Chelsea fired him for no trophy but while on holiday a group of Russians offered him the Monaco Job with a lot of money to spend. the one condition? Win trophies from the start and when given a budget of £150m was given to him and with the personal touch to the story about Jose's son too it is expertly written. Then his wife leaves him also which adds an even better twist onto things.

Mourinho then went on to sign several players and lot of them were English in Rio Ferdinand and Phil Jones which the French media had criticized. Mourinho then said that Monaco had no fans. This story is riveting and with trips to the strip club included as Monaco are doing good this story will no doubt be a story of the month nominee next month for sure.

The Red Journey



In one of my personal favourite stories on the site at the moment. A mystery manager had to remember a drunken night after being sacked but had no idea about it at all. It had all gone to court and from nowhere this person had got a text message, saying there was a opportunity for him and to keep his eyes out. Then after a second text message he was offered a dream job with a club very close to his heart and we also found out he was the manager of a club in Serbia. The man was Robert Prosinecki and he is now the manager of Red Star, the writing in this story is fantastic and leaves you wanting more each time, the use of Graphics could be improved but the quality of the story is such that it doesn't really need it. Red Star are top of the table at the moment and it is definitely one to keep an eye on for sotm and the future.
