Hey guys! This is my first LLM story and as I really like playing these saves, I hope, that if you guys follow this save, it will be great. As you can see, I will be Gateshead F.C., founded in 1889 and reformed in 1977(more about club's history in my next update). I will have many, many goals, and I strongly believe that I will achieve every each of one because, this team is known to have sugar daddy chairman, and I hope that with their help, I will succeed. Keep up with story, as tomorrow will be first update. Until then, I hope you comment on beginning. Thanks

    Gateshead F.C. Information

    Gateshead Football Club is an English professional football club based in Gateshead, Tyne and Wear. The club participates in the Conference Premier, the fifth tier of English football. A previous version of the club was created in 1930 when South Shields F.C. relocated to Gateshead. They played in the Football League from 1930 until 1960, but were liquidated in 1973. The present club was formed in 1977.

    Gateshead currently play their home games at Gateshead International Stadium with their biggest attendance there being 8,144 for the second leg of their Conference Premier play-off against Grimsby Town on 4 May 2014, which the Heed won 3–1 and 4–2 on aggregate. There was a pitch invasion by the home fans after the Tynesiders secured their first ever place at Wembley.

    On 28 October 2009, Gateshead unveiled plans for a new 7,856 capacity football stadium to be built in the town centre. The stadium will be built on a derelict site opposite the Gateshead Civic Centre, formerly the home of North Durham Cricket & Rugby Club.

    As they have never won any major titles I won't be writing about that sector.

    Kits that have been used by Gateshead F.C. are white top with black shorts, for home games, but for away they play with colors same as Burnley or Aston Villa.

    We are ready now to begin our quest, so hold tight and soon will be first update for transfers and pre season matches. Comment and follow. Thanks
    Good luck, will follow. :)

    Pre Season and Transfers:

    We had a pretty good pre season and players I brought are pretty good and young. First about transfers. We brought many youngsters on free and one player for 70k euros from Jeddeloh, Julian Bennert. He is 22 year old German striker with great finishing skills and posses good speed.

    Next player is Navid Nasseri, 17 year old Iran player who plays as Advanced playmaker and was brought on free as all other players. He has good first touch with great speed and very vreative player and hope he will do good for us.

    Tommy Doherty, 35 year old North Ireland player, very determined player and experienced who played for Bristol City for nearly six seasons. He is fairly slow player who plays as ball winning midfielder but good in defense.

    Ashley Harris, 20 year old defensive forward from England is one of best players of this transfer window. He has great technique attributes and very creative, which he showed in friendlies. He is player from Portsmouth academy.

    Curtis Jones, 21 year old defender from England has a potential of five stars and his defensive attributes show me that he will be great in future. He is already decent player for sky bet league 1 and is one of our top signings.

    And finally, Ross Jenkins, 23 year old midfielder from England possess good first touch, passing and technique with good vision but fairly slow player. Nevertheless, I think he will do just fine.

    Pre season matches:

    Some pretty nice results, with loss against Newcastle, but every other match was pretty good as we won rest of matches. Those were not strong teams, but still, wins are wins so I was pretty happy with how we played in this pre season.

    Gateshead 0-5 Newcastle

    Trafford 1-4 Gateshead

    Gateshead 2-0 Hawick RA

    Stocksbridge 0-1 Gateshead

    Gateshead 3-1 Crook

Against Grimsby, whoa, what a match, we were leading 1-0, 2-1 and 3-2 and at the end we won with six goals in net of Grimsby. Adam Campbell scored incredible five goals and had rating 10.0 . Again we were on first place. Altrincham was a routine win with three goals in their net. Another dominance with 25 shots for us and only one for them.

    Thanks mate,...

    Btw, 200th post :)

    September Report:

    Well, I can only say that I was pretty disappointed with this month after August. Insecure play by my team produced results that we didn't want to happen. But even after these results, the brightest star was again Adam Campbell who scored seven goals in seven matches. First match of the month was against Kidderminster, and after August, good play continued in that match as we produced 21 shots on goal with 53% of possession. Adam Campbell scored two goals on this match and one goal by Bennert.

    Next match was played against AFC Telford in which we played draw. Again, we were dominant but we were insecure in defense which produced this kind of result. That draw really scared me but next match against Dartford has took away my concerns and gave us another win with again two goals by Campbell. Domination got us victory and took us back on 1st place in table. But, next match dropped us on 2nd placed as we were unlucky against Macclesfield. Although we had ball in our legs we lost that match, giving us our first defeat this season which frightened me as I thought that it would be beginning of an end.

    In match against Welling, my concerns became reality as we were losing 0-1 until 75th minute when we equalized but even if we had 26 shots on goal and they had only 4 shots, we drew that match too. Only goal on that match for us scored James Curtis from corner. Next was Aldershot and another two goals by Adam Campbell and finally, after two matches without win, we were able to show desire and to win that match. Final match of month was against Lincoln but that match was so boring that there were only couple of minutes of live play that I watched. Match without chances and desire from my squad to win it.

    Next month must be better as this mistakes cannot be made anymore!

    Kidderminster 1-3 Gateshead

    Gateshead 2-2 AFC Telford

    Gateshead 2-0 Dartford

    Macclesfield 2-0 Gateshead

    Welling 1-1 Gateshead

    Gateshead 2-1 Aldershot

    Lincoln 0-0 Gateshead

    Top 3 In League:

    Gateshead pts: 30

    Macclesfield pts: 28

    Braintree pts: 28

    Player Of The Month:
