Who am I then?

I am going to be paying as Manchester Utd. This is a story that I hope to continue with, and maybe be one of the greats? I have played on a little but not to far. The reason that I am playing as them, is only because I felt good about them, that they could be a team I will stick with, and have a great story as them.

Club History

Manchester United Football Club is an English professional football club, based in Old Trafford, Greater Manchester, that plays in the Premier League. Founded as Newton Heath LYR Football Club in 1878, the club changed its name to Manchester United in 1902 and moved to Old Trafford in 1910.

My Squad

This is what my squad will look like up until January:

As yous can obviously see I have made my self a couple of Signings : These signings have been incredible for myself, and also the club.
My Transfer activity:
Sanchez is a great signing but IMO you should have kept Rafael, develops into a great right back.
Josh: Thanks for the support, and you'll just have to wait and see. Also Sanchez has been great, kicked Valencia out of the starting XI. I think i made the wrong decision in selling Rafael, but the defense are doing well without him.
TK69 Thank you very much :p
Very good signings mate!

Pre - Season Results:

Monterrey 0-3 Man Utd
Vidic, Kagawa, RVP
Man Utd 1-0 Borrusia Dortmand
Gladbach 1-1 Man Utd
Man Utd 0-0 Juventus

Toulouse 0-4 Man Utd
Hernandez(3), Vidic
Man Utd 2-2 Napoli
Kagawa, Ferdinand


Pre -Season was very good. Got some great results especially against Dortmund. I tried and I experimented with a vary of my players, and tactics through pre-season. Quite a few young players were played through out pre-season. The lads could have gotten a better result against Gladbach I think, but it doesn't matter, the lads put in a good performence. Also could have gone better against Juventus but it doesn't matter now. The tactics that I chose for the team have been great, they have adapted to it brillianty and look raring for the season ahead.

Manager of the Month:

Really pleased to have got manager of the month in my first competitive month as a manager. The lads done great and I'd like to thank them as much as anybody!

Authors Notes:

My first competitive game as Man Utd manager so me and my squad come up against FA Cup winners Wigan Athletic in the Community Shield. We dominated the game until the 90th minute, having 34 shots, and only scoring one goal. Alex McCarthy had a great game, but couldn't stop a magnificent strike from Wayne Rooney. The Man City result was brilliant, I was thrilled, the lads played great, dominated the game the whole way through. My name was getting chanted from the crowds, it was great! The Hull game should have been about for or five, the lads were still struggling to find a decent scoring form, but we won so who cares?! The last game of the month ended with a great win against Crystal Palace, putting three past the keeper. This was a great start to my Manchester United career.
