Hey guys, I'm back with yet another story. Don't worry, this will be my last story of FM13, no matter what happens. If I stick to this, you'll see it until the end of FM13. If I don't, well you won't see another story from me. A couple of days ago, Pixel posted a comment on my unemployed story. He said it was disappointing that it didn't take off, and that he was looking forward to it. I felt the same way. I just couldn't get into the save, and I was struggling to find motivation to write. Then I looked at my most popular story. It was the Diego Maradona one, which hit 19k views a couple of days ago. Looking back, this story was the most fun to write. However, It was arguably the story with the least writing. It was one of the 2 saves I had where the story revolved around the save and not vice versa. With this new story, I aim to replicate that. It will be much more fun and less serious than the others. Hopefully, It will be fun to read for you guys. The first update will be soon, so stay tuned. :)
I reach over to press the power button on my TV. The TV, a gigantic plasma screen, turns right on to... Nick Jr. Nick Jr. Are you serious? Who was watching Nick Jr? Was It Joelle, Quincy, Maxim, Sheyenne, Charmmayne, or Felicity? Yep, that's right, I have 6 children. 6 loud, obnoxious, children who think they can watch Nick Jr. As the lone parent in this house, I do not tolerate stupid little TV Shows. I turn the TV right on to Sky Sports, and lay back in my massage chair. Sky Sports is covering the performance of Andros Townsend right now, after his Man of the Match performance against Montenegro. Big Deal. Montenegro is tiny country. After showing Townsend's strike just about half a million times, they finally move on to a less enjoyable subject. yes, You guessed it. The annoying Chelsea snob, Jose Mourinho, is on the television, talking his ass off about how unlucky he is to lose to Basel and what a fluke it was and yada yada yada. Then he starts talking about me. I knew this would happen.

Jose, what do you think about the recent comments of Rudd Guillit about you opting not to play Juan Mata?

Well, I think that he should try managing if he knows everything about football. I'd like to see how he'd fare in the footballing world. I'd bet he could get relegated with Barcelona.

I ball my fists up in temporary rage, but wait. I smile. Next time, Jose Mourinho should watch his words, because Rudd Guillit is coming for you. Better run you little insolent ...

Guillit hired as new manager of Stuttgart


Rudd Guillit was announced new manager of Stuttgart today by Gerd E. Masuer today. The former Milan and Chelsea legend managed onne at Chelsea and was challenged too manage once more by Jose Mourinho in a response to criticism about the role of Juan Mata at Chelsea. When asked if Mourinho influenced his decision to become manager, Guillit told reporters that Mourinho had nothing to do with his decision to become a manager. He also told reporters that he was very happy to be working at such a great club with such talented players. Later on in his first conference, Guillit said that center backs were the prime targets for the window, as the current center backs just aren't talented enough to be playing for one of Germany's best clubs. More on this story later.
Nice start Jason, hope you see this through to the end of FM14 :)
Gullit has never managed? I think you'll find he did ;)

This must be a different Ruud Gullit. Geez Louis.

Aye, Chelsea were the first team he managed.
I would like to point out that he also managed Newcastle for a bit and also Feyenoord. Despite this I look forward to the rest of this good luck.

Good luck pal :D

The first day at Stuttgart


The Mercedez-Benz Arena wasn't as glamours as you would think, knowing the car brand. No, the stadium was, well, a typical stadium. They were similar to the stadiums that I worked in when I was at Newcastle and Feyenoord. I was given a tour of all the facilities earlier this morning. it was nothing special, certainly no Berneabeau, Wembley, or Allianz. Later on was the first training session. The boys started with simple jogs and stretches, but the real training began with some simple keep away drills 5 players per side, 5 teams on the pitch. The boys had the whole half to retain possession of the ball. This drill was just meant to help show me who needed help with their game. The team with the blue pinnies kept the ball for a while, and it was clear the tackling ability of the team was horrendous. Moritz Leitner, A guy with funny hair, was probably the best passer on the team. I was confident he'd be the cog in the team, but the assistant informed that he was on loan from Dortmund. Dortmund, no wonder he had weird hair. The second part of training was finishing. The defense lined up to the right of the net, and the attackers lined up about 15 yards outside of the box. I'd feed a ball to one of the attackers, and they had to do whatever they could to score. It was a simple drill, but some players couldn't out the ball in the back of the net if they're life depended on it. \Yes, I'm talking to you Cacau. However, Vedad Ibesivic, and the wingers who were more talented with the ball sliced through the defenders like the defenders were no more than a stick of butter. Ibsevic got 7 chances to score. He got by his man and finished 6 out of those 7 times. not a terrible total if you ask me. By now, it was clear that the defense needed polishing in the worst way. We had 4 million pounds to spend, plus sales money. The money would definitely be invested in the defensive side of this team. If we were to push for Europe again, we would need a solid defense. At the end of the training session, I went to chat with the coaches about what they thought on the team's tactics. They recommended a 4-2-3-1, but I wanted to try out a 4-5-1, my formation of choice. Our first competitive match was against Bayern in the German Super Cup, some challenge. I would love to say I was confident of a result, but I can't say that. Bayern has too much class for us right now, but soon, we'd be fighting Bayern for the same spot they occupied last year, 1st place.
