Chairman Game Story

So as the title says this thread is for the story of LFC's Chairman Game. This is where chairman can post transfer stories, rumours, drama, sackings, hires, etc etc

Please be respectful and I'd suggest confirming with LFC before posting anything.
Can't wait for this :D

Man ousts Tan

Unpopular Cardiff City Chairman Vincent Tan has finally been persuaded to end his controversial spell in charge by billionaire Win-Scent Man. Man, 60, resembled Tan in many ways, including in his age, appearances, and bizzare tendency to wear his Cardiff jersey above his smart shirt.

Tan was heavily criticised for HIS EVIL DEEDS whilst at Cardiff. He changed the club's shirt from blue to red, sacked the club's Director of Football and replaced him with a 23 year old Kazakh, and fired popular manager Malky Mackay who was good. Man, BBC Sport really is losing quality.

Man has said nothing so far but rumours persist that he is set to run the club in a profit-based manner, which, of course, means keeping the shirts at red and making the fans buy the blue away kits instead. He also spoke to the club's senior figures who told him not to sell David Marshall, Jordon Mutch, Aron Gunnarsson, Peter Whittingham and the club's new recruits. In other news, all of the above have been placed on the transfer list.

Sheikh Mansour sells stake in Manchester City

Indian businessman takes over at Eastlands

The richest man in English football has officially left.

In a shock decision, Manchester City's owner Sheikh Mansour has decided to sell his stake in the club and leave football for the time being.

Although some view it as a move to cut his losses, with City having failed to go past the group stages of the Champions League in the past two years despite heavy investment ever since the 42-year-old took over the club in 2008, sources close to Mansour say that he will be concentrating and political career and his businesses back home, after being given greater responsibilities in the International Petroleum Investment Company.

City fans can still expect to see big signings

But Man City fans most likely do not need to worry about losing their sugar daddy, as their new owner has pockets just as deep. Indian businessman Mukesh Ambani will now be the principle owner of the club.,width-400,resizemode-4/Mukesh-Ambani.jpg

India's richest man has dreams for his new club

Ambani, 54, the owner of Reliance Industries in India, has the distinction of formerly being the world's richest man. With a personal fortune of around $20 billion, it is obvious that Ambani will be making his mark on the Premier League with significant investment in the City squad.

"We are delighted to take over at Manchester City." stated Ambani.

"This is a team with a lot of potential, and we hope to keep improving and keep winning trophies."

"The Champions League is the most prestigious club competition in the world and we want to be challenging for it every single year. As an owner, I will do everything in my power to make sure that this club reaches that level."
he concluded.

Dyslexic Man Takes Control Of West Ham

An unknown Dyslexic man has bought out the West Han owners. He paid just 3 shillings and 6pence for the club as the owners went bankrupt. The man whose identity is unknown at the moment is said to have picked West Ham as a 53rd choice of club but is promising.............well nothing, he hasn't even told fans what he intends on doing with the club.

The media are saying he is going to turn Upton Park into a massive Night club and disband the football club. We will bring you more on this when we get it.

Whelan leaves beloved Wigan for newly promoted Tigers

Dave Whelan has joined Hull Tigers as the new chairman, taking over Assem Allam. It has come as a shock to many Wigan fans as he was with the club from February 1995, Whelan also won the ‘FA Cup’ last year beating Manchester City 1-0, thanks to Ben Watson’s header from a corner. He also witnessed the club go down to the Championship after 8 years in the top flight, after a 4-1 loss to Arsenal on matchday 37. (Whelan with also outgoing manager, Roberto Martinez)
Whelan told us today, via the Wigan Athletic website. ‘As of tomorrow I will be the new Hull City chairman, I would like to thank all the managers, players but most of all fans for all the dedication shown to the club throughout my years at the club, I’d love to see the Latics return to the top flight for the 2014/15 season and be fighting for a Champions League place one day.’ Whelan then continued ‘Hull are now my team and I must lead them to success, I hope you all can understand the decision, hopefully I can return one day, once again, thank you.

Dyslexic Man Takes Control Of West Ham

Amazingly The unknown dyslexic man is no other than Lee Mack!

Mack who sat down for the press conference, said he is very happy to have bought the club. He was asked if he was going to take it seriously and he replied 'A market researcher said ‘can I ask you 10 questions’, I said ‘go on’, she said ‘question number 1 have you ever had a blackout?’ I said ‘no’, she went…’and finally, question number 10'

Once the laughter had died down he answered...No

He was asked who he was going to bring in as manager and he replied 'My dad, kind of bloke could read out a telephone directory and It’d be funny…to be fair, he used to do it with his cock out. Then answered 'oh you mean manage the football club? I thought you mean manage the next door neighbours daughter!'

'No I have no idea yet, I might even have a go myself. (the journalists waited for him to start laughing so they new he was nothing)

There was a awkward silence so Mack told yet another one of his famous jokes he looked at the nice looking journalist from ITV and said 'I know what your thinking, Is that a gun in your pocket or you just pleased to see me? No its me knob.' He laughed she looked uncomfortable he said he was going to the pub and that was the end of the Convosation.

Breaking News

Cardiff's crackpot takes over Everton F.C

Vincent Tan; former Cardiff city Owner, despot, potential future bond villain? fast food pedler, man with high waistband and a fabulous tash has taken his cash and moseyed on up to Merseyside to buy himself a football club (and some knock luis vuitton hand bags). Former owner and chairman Bill Kenwright had always promised to only pass the club on to a responsible owner, it now appears his a liar and presumably is trying to create enough drama so he can turn the saga into a successful play.

Tan had this to say: i expect the everton fans will be overjoyed to have my magnificent presence here at Everton F.C and i can't wait untill i have changed the colours red and added some of those super liver birds to the crest. i can reasonably expect to by the most loved person in the city within the week.

I'm not sure what this smile means for Everton f.c

In addition to sweeping changes to the colour scheme, Vincent tan has brought in his new chairman Maximillian Steel who whilst not having time for a press conference had this to say. "i'm so so sorry"

What the future holds for Everton nobody quite knows but more drama than bill kenwright on corrie is guaranteed.

New Chairman set to bring changes to Newcastle

Newcastle finally announced their new chairman yesterday, a 34 year old businessman by the name of Jason Hunt. Hunt, an American who made billions with the Hunt Supermarket Chain, bought Newcastle for 168 million pounds. Hunt took over a team who performed well below expectations last year, finishing 16th. Hunt promised big changes, the first being the removal of unspectacular manager Alan Pardew, who has did nothing to impress Toon supporters last year. Hunt revealed that he had some managerial targets in mind, but nothing has been confirmed as of yet. The name that has been repeated over and over is Harry Redknapp, who supposedly has an interest in the job.

Hunt also announced that changes in the squad were extremely likely, as he invested a whole 65 million pounds in the club that would be used for buying players. The club needs wingers, especially Left Wingers, and a name that Hunt mentioned as Andre Schurrle, who expressed his discontent with Chelsea just yesterday.

Hunt told the press that he expected a place in the UEFA Europa League after this season, by ways of either the cups or the leagues. That would mean a leap of 10 positions from last season, but the young American feels that it can and needs to be done.

Swansea Splash Out on City Swoop

Swansea have completed the signings of Spaniards Alvaro Negredo, Jesus Navas from Manchester City.
In what may be the surprise move of the season Manchester City have let go of two recent signings Alvaro Negredo and Jesus Navas for a fee that has been rumoured to be around £58million. Swansea City fans are reportedly delighted with the news of the two players arrival stating: "Joe Kinghear is the best thing that ever happened to the club!".It is obvious that even in these early stages of Joe Kinghear's reign of Swansea City he is happy to splash the cash on who he believes can push Swansea on to glory.
Jesus Navas (pictured above) came through as a youngster at Sevilla and has played over 250 games for the Spanish side winning the UEFA Europa League twice and the Copa del Rey twice. Jesus has also played for his country Spain and was part of the Spain team who won the FIFA World Cup and UEFA European Championship in 2010 and 2012.
Alvaro Negredo (pictured above) also played for Sevilla, but came through as a young talent at Rayo Vallecano. Real Madrid saw talent in the young Alvaro and bought him off Rayo for £200k and Alvaro went on to play 65 games for their Castilla B-Team, scoring 22 goals. In July 2007 he joined Almeria for £2.1m playing 70 games and scoring 32 goals. In what has proved to be not his only shock move he was signed back to Real Madrid during the summer of 2009 for £4.5million yet failed to make a single appearances for them. The next year he joined Sevilla were he teamed up with other signing Jesus Navas were he went on to score 70 goals in 139 appearances earning him the nick-name 'The Beast of Sevilla'.

Rumors are also circling around a third Manchester City player that Swansea City and Joe Kinghear are interested in but nothing has been confirmed as of this present time.

Hewson and Dover: Chelsea's New Owners

Today, Russian billionaire, Roman Abramovich, left the football world in shock, as he sold the club to Paul Hewson, or commonly known as U2 singer Bono. However, with Abramovich selling the London based club for a total of £1,000,000,000, the singer had to ask help from his close friend, Ben Dover, who supposedly is the man who works with Carlos Slim and Bill Gates. Both will work like former co-chairmen David Sullivan and David Gold at West Ham, who have been taken over by a dyslexic man.

Roman Abramovich

Abramovich has decided to sell Chelsea to Hewson and Dover.

The Russian billionaire decided to approach the way of Suleyman Kerimov, and decided to stop injecting cash to the club, and Mourinho, along with the Chelsea fans, disagreed and asked for the Russian to sell the club. The Russian agreed to this, and following weeks of persistent rumors, Abramovich stepped down, with Ben Dover and Paul Hewson taking over.

Co-Chairmen Press Conference

Hewson and Dover during their announcement.

Following the news and the official announcement and talks with the manager, Jose Mourinho, the pair have decided to keep the controversial Portuguese, who just arrived from Spanish super-power Real Madrid. Not only this, but Hewson, along with Dover, agreed that they would keep their main stars, and expected Jose Mourinho to mount a serious title-challenge, and that the transfers will be made between the two chairmen, with the advice of Mourinho and their technical director, Michael Emanalo.

Jose Mourinho & Michael Emanalo

Michael Emanalo and Jose Mourinho will have to work along with the new chairmen.

Hewson, along with Dover, agreed that Stamford Bridge would be expanded to full capacity, or sold, to build a new stadium, but said that the plans will be put on hold, at least until the New Year. Along with that, they impressed the journalists, with their easy approach, and brought on their first signings, which were American maid Emma, and a domestic maid, called Tanay, also known as Bob.

Stamford Bridge

Will 'The Bridge' be sold, or expanded?

Will Chelsea fans like Hewson's and Dover's approach to the London based club? Only time will tell, along with the money and signings brought into the club.

Manchester United have confirmed the takeover of the club, but are yet to announce the name of the man that bought out the Glazers.

It is believed they will be calling a press conference tomorrow...

Swansea Sack Laudrup

Swansea City has tonight parted ways with manager Michael Laudrup, Morgan Wieghorst to take temporary charge. After what has been described as 'the hardest decision so far', Chairman Joe Kinghear has announced the mutual termination of Michael Laudrup's contract. In a press conference Joe stated: "I know how good a job Michael has done for the club and it will be hard for the fans to come to terms with the news and let me reassure them it was not an easy decision to make".
-Laudrup holding Swansea back?-

Michael Laudrup replaced Brendan Rogers in June 2012 and overturned the Swansea team by bringing in Spanish players such as Michu, Chico and Pablo Hernandez amongst others. In his first competitive game as Swansea manager Michael beat Queens Park Rangers 5-0 at Loftus Road. During his time at Swansea Laudrup lifted the Capital One Cup (English League Cup), which was also Swansea's first major cup final, defeating Middlesbrough, Chelsea and Bradford in the Quarter-Final, Semi-Final and Final respectivly.

Speculation has already begun for who will replace Laudrup at the Liberty Stadium with names such as Marcello Lippi, Roberto Di Matteo and Diego Simeone being mentioned.
