March Story of the Month
March has been a month that, while perhaps not filled to the brim with new stories, has seen the continuation of some great stories of the past and the emergence of a new major contenders for this coveted prize. Before we look at the five stories nominated for this month's award, however, let's meet our judges:

And now, the moment you've been waiting for: our five nominees!
pompeyblue's Portsmouth- We Own Our Club
When lifelong diehard Pompey fan Joshua Hull took the reigns at Portsmouth, fans were incredulous. A 25 year old fan with minimal backroom experience? A disaster waiting to happen, they all thought. Mr. Hull has proven all of his doubters wrong, however, and in just three years won three league titles and led Portsmouth to back to back to back league titles and now fights for UCL qualification in his first year in the Premier League. Can he make the cut? Read to find out!
Neal's [FM13] Giuseppe Bergomi - The King of Calcio
With over eight hundred appearances as a player for Inter Milan, Giuseppe Bergomi is doubtlessly a club legend, and he has done nothing but further that claim as a manager. The fiery Italian has raked in trophy after trophy and now looks to win his third straight Champions League while also leading Italy to the world cup. Embroiled in match-fixing allegations, however, the stress may just prove too much.
tbendis's [FM13]The Adriatic Adventure [Hajduk Split]
Ever since energetic young manager Timmy Bendiš took Hajduk Split, Croatian football has exploded. Now, Hajduk is perhaps one of the very greatest clubs in the world, led by monstrously prolific frontman Tomislav Kiš, the footballing giants are on the prowl to bring home another league title and, more importantly, defend their European crown. Can Bendiš do it while leading France at the same time? Only time will tell.
Neal's Francesco Totti - Il Gladiatore di Roma
A legend of the game, and a hero of his club, Francesco Totti has taken over AS Roma, and what a debut season at the helm. With the 2013-2014 season just finished, the Giallorossi managed to scrape the Serie A title for the first time in thirteen years as well as bring home a record tenth Coppa Italia, a historic double. However, as summer looms, a question arises: Can Totti hold on to his star players, or will this talented outfit fall by the wayside as many Italian teams have done lately?
jasonvilla4ever's Keegan Rolling Back the Years
Deep into the future, Kevin Keegan has returned to football management. After leading Nottingham Forest to an incredible few seasons, Keegan went on to dominate the Spanish La Liga with Real Madrid, dragging his best players along with him and purchasing any and all superstars in sight. Along the way, Keegan even brought the World Cup to England! Now, however, Keegan's journey has taken a new turn as he arrives at Inter Milan, where only time will tell if his success will continue!
