XII_BUP: Thanks mate, nice to know it pleases somebody;p & Come to think of it, yes Balanta, assuming I get him, would partner Jones well, but I want to make sure Keane does turn into a good enough cb instead of forking out a load of money to bring in another.

As I said RVP's injured, and Welbeck will have his chance, I just hope he scores as many as hedoes on yours;p Anyway thanks again bud! :D

EDIT: Second half of October was ready to be posted, but my laptop decided it hated me and crashed, but I'll get to work on it again now.
Amazing story, so far, enjoying it lots man, keep going with it cause I am following, hell of fun, any signings in mind in the future?
I sent Keane on loan in the first 2 seasons and he came back improved massively. Now he is a rotation option in my back 4, playing at RB if Peruzzi or Smalling is injured and CB when needed. Very impressed and if he keeps playing well he'll end up starting so I like that you want to give him the opportunity!

Match Review:
Another draw, another wasted two points added onto our previous lost four. The quality of United is there, we just can't score. van Persies' loss is a big one.

Match Review:
Finally managed to claim all three points instead of losing out on two. We dominated the match, and should've had more goals to show for it.

Match Review:
A harsh defeat by our rivals to add to our terrible month of games. We had more of the ball, but couldn't take our chances unlike Liverpool.

Pen: 3-5 2-2

Match Review:
Another game where the result does not equal the performance. As expected we were all over them, but eventually it came down to quality over quantity. A missed penalty by Welbeck sent Nottingham Forrest into the next round of the Capital One Cup.

Tough results! Luckily there's only four points separating you and Chelsea.
Mohamed: Thanks mate, and I'm not to sure really, Balanta as I mentioned before could be making his move here, and Lewandowskis planning on leaving I think, but I have a few players in mind so stick around;)

k1rups: I'm trying to get him out on loan now come January, seems like he'll turn into a hell of a players, and seems to have already in your save;p I'll see if I can get him out to a small club for a couple of season.

Josh7789: Yeah it's a shame to not pick up the three points in easy matches, we'd be sitting third if we'd of managed to put another past Newcastle.
Fantastic manager story! Love reading this!
Itotheewis: Thanks mate:')
Your story is great, I have been waiting for updates but I haven't found any, come on, update!
Some of the graphics in this story are great; I especially like the player/manager/young player of the month graphic. I can see this definitely being a story of the month winner in the not too distant future.
Unfortunate loss their mate. Bad luck

Lewandowski: "Spain and England move doubtful"

The Polish striker has admitted that Manchester United, Chelsea and Real Madrid have all tried to persuade him to join them over the past 12 months. The Polish striker only has one year remaining on his contract with Borussia Dortmund and is linked with a move to Bayern Munich next summer on a free transfer.

The Polish international is regarded as one of the top strikers in Europe at the moment following several impressive displays in last seasons Champions League, especially in Dortmund’s 4-1 victory over Real Madrid in the semi-final.

Lewandowski admits that then Real Madrid manager, Jose Mourinho, text him after the match to tell him that he wanted Lewandowski at whatever club he ended up at, which turned out to be Chelsea. “Yes, there was a situation like this with Jose Mourinho but I wouldn't like to talk about it much,” he said. “It was a private conversation so I don’t want to make big things out of it. I can confirm I spoke to him,” He added.

Lewandowski also says that Real Madrid president Florentino Perez also spoke to him after the Champions League semi-final. “It was in the office near the dressing room at the Bernabeu straight after the match. We spoke to each other briefly and that is it”. "I have also spoke to Sir Alex Ferguson about a move their, but things when quiet when interest from Real and Chelsea was brought to his attention."

Robert has claimed he has spoke to new manager Josh Sleightholm behind closed doors, and says his views on a move their are similar to those of Real Madrid and Chelsea.
Mohamed: haha sorry man, been struggling to find time with school and that starting again, should eventually get back to having two a day;p

Jamesg237: Thanks mate:) & I'm still trying to get nominated for it never mind winning it hahaha;)

Inquisition: Yeah bit gutting to be out so early, but at least it's only the Capital One Cup.
Lewandowski could be your first option on offense for years! ;) Great story!!
kubik: Yeah he wouldn't be a bad addition, but I don't think he wants to move unfortunately:(
