Port Vale run a tight ship. I knew the Lord was going to leyton though!
Just read through the updates. This is looking brilliant so far :)
Never, ever, read a name tag without first declaring loudly to all present that "Excuse me Ma'am, i am just going to read your name tag... if that would make you feel uncomfortable please tell me your name in advance... 1... 2... 3..."

Many a law suit saved that way!

Loving the unfolding drama even if i do fear for Hesky!

I'll take note for next time ;)

Sorry guys for the lack of updates, I haven't really felt like writing as my save on the demo went sour. Luckily, I will be getting the full release shortly and the Lord will be back!
Great start Felix :),thanks for the tribute to Phil Hughes, it was really shocking news especially as a cricketer myself to see something like that happen.

It's certainly resonated on a very personal level with a lot of people, including myself. RIP

Don't Ask, Don't Tell

Emile sat across from Martin at the dingy Stoke pub. It was a warm day for these parts, and a single bead of sweat rolled down O'Neill forehead as he digested the full extent of Emile's words.

"I, I just don't know why someone would do this Emile, I have no bloody clue," he finally said.

"I'm just as blank as you."

The pair sat in awkward silence for a moment. It was broken by Martin.

"Well, are you OK for a start?"

"Yeah, yeah, I'm fine. I just need some clarity on this situation so it doesn't happen again."

O'Neill nodded. "I hear you, I hear you. Listen, I have a lot of spare time as an international manager. I might be able to do some snooping."

Emile raised his eyebrow. "Snooping?"

"Don't ask, won't tell. Just consider it done."

The pair stood up and shook hands. "I'd love to stick around and chat Martin, but I have a flight to catch."

"Whereabouts?"

"Some fancy restaurant in London. I have a job interview."

Feeling Small

http://www.innovanaut.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/L-Anima-Caf%C3%A9-London-2.jpg

I sure feel out of place in this restaurant, thought Heskey, stepping into one of London's finest establishments. But at least it wasn't out of his pocket, it was out of the pocket of his potential employer, Francesco Becchetti. It didn't take long to find the Italian, he certainly had a presence.

"Emile! Come sit, come sit my friend!"

The big beefy Italian stood up and enveloped Emile in a bear hug that made the 188cm giant feel small. His personality was certainly small compared to Becchetti.

"Nice to meet you Mr Becchetti."

"No, no, no, it is my pleasure. Please, sit."

There was some small talk, and Heskey demolished his entree. But as the main course came out, the conversation inevitably turned to business.

"So Mr Heskey, you would like to manage my club?"

"Yes Francesco, that's why I'm here."

Becchetti cleared his throat. "Now, you must know, it's a habit of mine, I like to know I can trust people. Are you contacting other clubs at the moment?"

Heskey looked over at the TV screen. Peter Schmeichel had just been announced manager of Port Vale. "No."

"Good, good," said the Italian, breaking into a wide smile. "Let's get underway then."

And, by the end of the night...

Welcome To The World Of Management, Mr Heskey

http://s40.photobucket.com/user/fzemdegs/media/Untitled_zpsed5ffcbb.png.html

This was it, the big time. I don't think I've ever been this nervous in my playing days, except maybe that League Cup final.

The source of Heskey's nerves were just around the corner. Assembled at Brisbane Road were a group of around 20 journalists; indeed there had never been so much hype regarding a League 1 managerial appointment. Francesco Becchetti, calm and smiling as always, ushered Heskey into the conference room where he was greeted with multiple flashing cameras. Show time.

"Emile! BBC Radio 1 here, welcome to London!"

"Haha thankyou, it's a big change from my usual hunting ground of Leicester but it's a nice change."

"You join Leyton Orient as your first club of course, what persuaded you to choose a smaller club when there were reportedly some Championship and even Premier League clubs sniffing around?"

"As you mentioned, this is my first time in the management game so I didn't really want a high pressure gig in such a competitive league first up. Leyton is a wonderful club with a great set-up, and it'll be extremely beneficial for both myself and the club in our developments."

"Do you feel like the chairman has the right vision for the club, and shares your ambitions?"

"Of course, Francesco and I have some great plans for this club and we'll be working together night and day to see them through. It's a privilege to work with Mr Becchetti."

"It's certainly a good time to be at Leyton now, with one of the best Orient teams in recent memory. Do you feel up to the task, knowing that failure could see you getting axed."

"Well ignoring the melodrama, yeah, I do think I can do it. We have such a talented team with the likes of Jobi and Dean so anything less than promotion isn't good enough."

"Confident words there Emile, will this mean that the league becomes your main focus?"

"It definitely is my main focus, I've always put the league ahead of the cups. Winning the Cup won't get you promoted and that's the goal here, so for me the various cups will just be a chance to give some of the squad players some games."

"Could you give us an insight into the kind of manager you are?"

"I really wish I could Steven, but unfortunately I don't even know yet. Stepping into my first role comes with a bit of uncertainty, but Ferguson and Mourinho had to start somewhere right? The next few years should answer your question."

"Finally, is there any part of the squad you think needs improving?"

"I think I'll be prepared to discuss transfer policy at a later date."

"Thankyou everyone, the interview is now concluded."

Heskey walked back to the front office of Leyton Orient's facilities. Waiting was Francesco Becchetti.

"You did well Emile, I'm proud."

"Why thankyou Francesco."

"But just remember," Becchetti lowered his voice to a whisper, "the media are sharks. Trust no one."

"Erm, sure thing."

"Good man!" said the Italian, slapping Heskey on his shoulder. "Now, I'd imagine you have work to do!"

"Yeah, I need to go see my new right hand man."

"Well then, don't let me stop you!"
