The Chance To Become World Beaters


In what was an apparent eight year investigation, FIFA today showed evidence that the top seven leagues in Europe have been doing everything they can to keep the rest of the countries from gaining access to the Champions League.

FIFA would not go into the details of said corruption, but have explained the the penalties for each country.

England : England are to have every top flight player released on a free transfer and the Premier League prize money will be reduced. They will have there entitlement for the Champions League reduced to one team (unless a English side wins the Champions League). there reputation will also be reduced to two stars too.

Italy : Same as England

Germany : Same as England

Portugal : Same as England

Spain : Same as England

Russia : Same as England

France : Same as England

There is said to be shock and bewilderment about this but we think it is because the clubs have been caught. As for the Champions League next season? There are going to be some weird and wonderful teams in it but where will all the world's best players go?

It is understood that the big players will move to where the money is and that could be any club in Europe because there are so many as the top 6 leagues are giving every top flight club money and they will get a lot of it.
Interesting concept to the story. Good luck
Good luck :)
France has been playing by the rules?

Teams Release Managers!

Mourinho Leaves Chelsea

After the shock of 'Corruption-gate', sides in Europes biggest leagues have had to release there managers. David, Moyes, Jose Mourinho and Brendan Rodgers are just three of the big names to leave the Premier League.

I am shocked and saddened to leave said Mourinho, but I will go and find a new club somewhere in Europe that can afford me.

Rodgers said the same sort of thing too. I need to move somewhere that can afford me and will also want to allow me to build a world dominating squad.

It is rumoured that teams in Ukraine, Ireland, Austria, Greece and Belgium are going to be going for the biggest names in the world, which would also mean managers.

We do not expect David Moyes to get any of them jobs however!

Del Piero has become a wanted man

It is understood that Alessandro Del Piero is being courted by clubs like Ludogarets, Anderlecht, Brondby, Sligo Rovers, Red Bull Salzberg and Cluj.

It is understood he has received contract offers from these seven clubs and 4 other clubs who have yet to come forward. It will be interesting to see if he moves to any of these clubs.

Del Piero scored in all competitions in which he participated. He was named in the FIFA 100, a list of the 125 greatest living footballers selected by Pelé as a part of FIFA's centenary celebrations. He was also voted in the list of best European players for the past 50 years in the UEFA Golden Jubilee Poll. In 2000, Del Piero was the world's best-paid football player from salary, bonuses, and advertising revenue. As of December 2012, he is in tenth place among the UEFA Champions League all-time goalscorers. Along with six awards in Italy for gentlemanly conduct, he has also won the Golden Foot award, which pertains to personality and playing ability.

He played three FIFA World Cup and four UEFA European Football Championship with the Italian national team. He is joint 4th (with Roberto Baggio) in the Italian national team top-scorer ranking, with 27 goals (behind Silvio Piola with 30 goals, Giuseppe Meazza with 33 goals, and Luigi Riva with 35 goals) in 91 appearances.

Early Life

Born in Conegliano, Veneto, Del Piero is the son of Gino, an electrician, and Bruna, a housekeeper. He regularly played football in the backyard with two friends, Nelso and Pierpaolo, as a child. All three dreamed of becoming footballers, but only Del Piero would eventually manage to do so. Alessandro's older brother, Stefano, briefly played professional football for Sampdoria before an injury curtailed his career. The family lived in the hamlet of Saccon, a rural home in San Vendemiano. While growing up, Del Piero's family did not have much money for traveling abroad, so he considered being a lorry driver in order to see the world.

Outside Football

Del Piero is married to Sonia Amoruso and the two have been together since 1999 and married in 2005. They have three children, son Tobias (born 2007), daughter Dorotea (born 2009) and son Sasha (born 2010).

When the Olympic Flame for the 2006 Winter Olympics passed through Turin, Del Piero was a torchbearer. He has an interest in sports outside of football, particularly basketball, and in turn has gained fans outside of football; sport icons such as NBA star Steve Nash and cyclist Eddy Merckx have stated that they are fans of Del Piero.

Del Piero has a keen interest in music. He has recorded some of his own albums. Along with Marco Materazzi, Del Piero appeared on stage at a Rolling Stones show in Milan shortly after Italy's World Cup win. He is a good friend of musician and singer Noel Gallagher and a fan of his former band Oasis. Del Piero appears in the Oasis video "Lord Don't Slow Me Down". One of Del Piero's inspirations as a youngster was Japanese football manga Captain Tsubasa.

In 2012, he participated in the project "Save the dream" (against corruption in the sport) and spoke about this at Sorbonne, during the "Sport Integrity Symposium".

Charity Work

Del Piero has promoted and supported a number of charities. In 1998 he donated 5.200.000 lire to "Fondazione Bambini in Emergenza" (for abandoned children and victims of AIDS) auctioning his Juventus's shirt.

In 2001, he was ambassador for "Un gol per la ricerca" (for the cancer research). In 2006, he was AIRC testimonial for the cancer research and in recognition of this, he has received from President of Italy a prize of "Believe in Research".

In 2008, he has participated in a golf tournament organized by the foundation of Gianluca Vialli and Massimo Mauro for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis research. In 2009, he played a friendly match at Stadio Olimpico with his team "Ale 10+"; the collection (180.000 €) was donated to solidarity projects.

In 2010, he auctioned off his Juventus's shirt number 10 for the foundation "Un Campo per L'Aquila".[150] On 1 April 2011, he launched the project "ale10friendsforjapan" which he designed to help Japanese earthquake victims creating a website to sell t-shirts and collecting 303.880 €.

In 2011, he has participated in a golf tournament, "Fondazione Sant'Anna Cup – Crescere insieme", for the neonatal intensive care unit of the hospital Sant'Anna. On 21 July 2012, he played a friendly match at Kashima Stadium organized by J. League (Del Piero scored one goal and he left the field with a standing ovation); the collection was donated to the Japanese earthquake victims of 2011.

He was testimonial of ADISCO, for the donation of umbilical cord blood, and testimonial of 1GOAL for the education of poor children.

TV, Games, and Publicity

Del Piero has been used in many advertising broadcasts. He is under contract with German sports equipment manufacturer Adidas, Uliveto water, Fiat, Japanese motorbike company Suzuki, Pepsi,[156] Bliss, Cepu, Walt Disney and Upper Deck.

In 2006, he appeared in a television commercial for the Japanese motor scooter Suzuki Burgman together with the sports agent Andreas Goller.

Del Piero is also known for his sense of humour and is a popular guest at Italian comedy shows such as Paperissima and Striscia la notizia. He featured in the film "L'allenatore nel pallone 2" and in the show La sai l'ultima di Totti, a series of short comedy sketches created by his good friend and Roma captain Francesco Totti in which the two of them and national teammates former A.C. Milan defender Alessandro Nesta, Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon and striker Antonio Cassano would tell jokes and anecdotes about one another.

Del Piero was featured on the cover of EA Sports FIFA Football 2004 video game, alongside Thierry Henry and Ronaldinho, and FIFA World Cup 2006 video game. He was one of the two stars featured on the cover of the Italian version of PES 2010 video game, the other being FC Barcelona and Lionel Messi.

While playing for the local youth team of San Vendemiano, Del Piero used to feature as a goalkeeper because he could play a lot more football that way. His mother thought it would be better for him if he played as a goalkeeper since he would not sweat and the possibility of him getting injured was less likely. His brother Stefano commented to their mother that Alessandro looked better playing in an attacking position and Del Piero switched.
should be good to see who he takes over :)

Del Piero Signs On At Anderlecht

Anderlecht today announced that Allessandro Del Piero has agreed to be there manager. The 39 year old has signed a contract worth £28,500 a week for 1 year with a option for the club to retain him for another year.

I can not wait to get started on this project. I have a lot of players in mind to go for because of the increased money but know we will face a stern challenge for all the the world class players as the rest of Europe have the same amount of money to play with. I am looking for atleast 14 new players and will look to get in some Belgians too.

This is a good day for fans of Anderlecht but can the legendary Italian playmaker do the right thing by his new club, We will have to wait and see to find out.
Good luck mate!Nice project :D so every top player from every top club is on free transfer ?
2014-09-11 20:31#193879 pro_17 : Good luck mate!Nice project :D so every top player from every top club is on free transfer ?

Yes that is right :)
Can't wait to see how this develops... who knows, it might even be a premonition of the kick up the backside football needs to stop this ridiculous snowballing of money for the 'top' teams!

New Signings A Plenty: PART 1

Allessandro Del Piero has announced his new signings today at a press conference but the main topic was the failed bids to land Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi.

Luis Suarez was courted by Del Piero for his new look Anderlecht side from as soon as he had signed for the Belgian Champions but ultimately PAOK in Greece landed him instead. Suarez, who said he thought long and hard about the two sides had this to say. I spoke to my family and my family told me that Greece would be a better way of life than Belgium so I decided to go there instead

Lionel Messi was a whole different cattle of fish. He had four sides in for him, Salzberg in Austria, Ludogarets in Bulgaria, Anderlecht in Belgium and Wiener Neustadt in Austria. Messi had a big decision to make because they all offered a lot of money. Ludogarets were the first club to be refused and then he stated that Austria was going to be his chosen country to play in and that led to Wiener Neustadt got the nod of the World's best player at there club.

New Signings

David Luiz

David Luiz comes in after Del Piero reacted quickest to get him and offered him a contract so, so quick that he felt that he had to join. What Allessandro is going to do here is going to be special.

Gerard Pique

Pique signs for Anderlecht to hopefully for him become a main starter for the Belgian side. The former Barcelona centre-back will be a integral part of the squad.

Davide Santon

The former Newcastle left back Davide Santon has joined the Belgian champs and will be awesome in the left back role for the club.

Alvaro Negredo

Alvaro Negrado joined Santon and co. to become the 4th signing at Anderlecht. The Spanish international will provide a lot of attacking flair for Anderlecht.
good four signings allready man! interesting to see who else you add

The Chance To Become World Beaters

New Signings A Plenty: PART 2

Del Piero today announced the next four transfers he has made today and there are some very interesting ones indeed.

Alexis Sanchez

Twenty-four year old Alexis Sanchez joins Anderlecht on a five year £100,000 a week deal and Italian master Del Piero was overjoyed to land such an amazing player. This transfer shows we are meaning bisnuess this season, he is quick, skillful and can score a fantastic goal aswell as being a team player. This could mean Anderlecht are in line for a big season!

Antoine Griezmann

Twenty-two year old Antoine Griezmann joins Paars-wit in a deal worth £52,000 a week on a five year deal. The winger who turned down Belgian club Mons and Greek Superleague side Olympiakos can not wait to work with Del Piero. This is a fantastic chance to work with a player who was at the top of his game for years and years, I hope to learn a lot off him and think Anderlecht could win the Champions League this season.

Luca Modric

Croatian Luca Modric joins Anderlecht after they saw off 11 clubs including, OB, Helsingborgs, Salzberg and Debrecen. The 27 year old signed a five year, £110,000 a week deal and said it was the fact that he liked what Del Piero's five year plan was that convinced him to sign for the Belgian Champions. This is a great club, going in a great direction, so it was a no brainer for me.

Jordi Alba

Jordi Alba turned down APOEL and Salzberg to sign for Anderlecht but said once he had spoked to Gerard Pique, who had already moved his mind was made up.

Allessandro Del Piero is really adding well to his squad and with 17 signings altogether to announce PART 3 is only going to get better.
those are some big signings man! looking forward to seeing if you go for totally big names, or pick up some quality youth prospects too!
You already look like world beaters with all those top players lol. Gl with the season
