Going back to one of your previous updates, your goalkeeper is Scottish, not English. :£

The Path To Power


Luton Town are steamrolling their way to the Skrill Premier title and have finished the year of 2013 five points clear at the top of the table. They have played some rather fantastic football over the course of the season, and they have given their fans belief that a first trophy in five years is on it's way in the Skrill Premier title. Of course, they are still in contention to win the FA Trophy, with a Third Round fixture against Kidderminster to look forward to.

Luton Town's financial power has obviously been one of the reasons for their success. You only have to look back eight years to see Luton Town in the Championship, filling out a 10,300 stadium every single week. Despite their sudden decline in football and their horrific drop to the Skrill Premier, Luton Town still have high financial security and Professional status, both of which are very rare for clubs not in the Football League. However, the men in charge of Luton Town behind the scenes have kept a very tight hold on the club's money, not overspending on players or player wages. The club certainly has not bought their way to the top of the league this season.

Of course, money does not buy you results. The players of Luton Town deserve a lot of plaudits for the results which they have picked up so far. Their defensive play has been second to none in the Skrill Premier, conceding just 21 goals in 25 games played so far this season. Their attacking play has also been exemplary, scoring 48 goals, second to just Cambridge who have scored 49. Luton Town's players have excited their fans with the neat football which they have played, and they have given them hope.

Much of this is credited to the great work done by their new, young manager Ryan Ferguson. Since joining The Hatters, he has revolutionised the club with his ideas, re-structuring the youth teams as well as the senior team. He has put a lot of hard work in on the training ground to prepare the players for each game, and he has lead the players out to perform excellently on so many occasions this season. He has been a true revelation for the club so far, and you can expect to see the club take massive strides under his management.

Not much more than half the season has been played so far, so there is still a lot of work to do for Ryan Ferguson and Luton Town. They may be topping the Skrill Premier, but complacency is not an option now. This is when the hard work starts, can they hold on to their top spot? I believe they can, and I believe that Ryan Ferguson is the right man to lead Luton Town on their Path To Power.

Ah, I'm so fucking dedicated, I even remembered to comment at half two on a monday morning using the glorious mobile version of fm scout (wait...)
Good update, you're right in saying that money doesn't buy results, just ask QPR fans (or are they just a myth? O.o)
Anyway, congrats on your magnificent march towards the title, and I've got a funny feeling that FA trophy will be on its way soon, too...perhaps its just me being 'in the know' :))

World Player Awards 2013


Lionel Messi, Franck Ribéry and Cristiano Ronaldo. These three players have lit the world of football up for many years now and they are all coming to the peak of their careers simultaneously. Each player has their admirers, most notably Lionel Messi, but each of these three players are without a doubt world class talents who have stood out amongst their team-mates. But which player won the prestigious FIFA Ballon d'Or? Selecting a player from these three was certainly a monumental task, and wasn't easy for any of the judges.

It was Real Madrid's Portuguese wizard Cristiano Ronaldo who, with 179 points, finished in third place. He has had an electrifying year, finishing runners-up in both the La Liga and Copa del Ray with Real Madrid, and also leading his country to World Cup qualification where he will be captaining his side in Brazil next year. He is without a doubt one of the greatest athletes to have graced world football, and he will continue to amaze us.

FC Bayern's thirty year-old French magician Franck Ribéry claimed 291 points to finish in second place in the standings. Franck has had a spectacular year with his German team, winning the Bundesliga, the DFB-Pokal (German Cup), the UEFA Champions League and the FIFA Club World Championships. His goalscoring and creating attributes has helped his team to no end, and he is indeed one of the most valuable players in the world. The man who has never touched alcohol in his life, may never have the chance to touch the FIFA Ballon d'Or in his life either, however, as he did not claim enough points to win this year's prize. Hopefully Fracnk can continue his amazing career and be back next year to challenge for the prize again.

Who else could win the FIFA Ballon d'Or prize other than the great Argentinian genius, and Barcelona's greatest ever player, Lionel Messi! A staggering 473 points was enough for the twenty-six year-old to claim first place and lift the prestigious award for an outstanding fifth time in a row! Lionel has been playing some extraordinary football for the last five years, and winning the Liga BBVA with Barcelona this year just epitomizes that. Is he the greatest player in football history? With five golden globes in his locker, I do not think that question needs to be answered. Hopefully we can see many more successful years from the world's greatest footballer!
