Hello everyone and welcome to my first story on this site! I'm really excited to begin writing about something I enjoy and something I live for! I have to shoutout the likes of Pompeyblue and Icarus who made me want to write about my FM saves, they really inspired me and honestly are brilliant writers! Anyway.. onto the team I will be managing and a little bit about the club.
Welcome and Hello!
The club are, as you can see from the title of this, is Hertha Berlin a club who play in the top division in Germany, also known as the Bundesliga. I'm sure most of you have heard about Berlin, after all they are a successful club, or they were.. Hertha were a founding member of German football and were founded in 1892 since their founding they have won the German Championship twice, once in 1930 and then the following year in 1931. However, they have yet to win a Bundesliga title. Berlin haven't won anything major recently either, the last time they won a cup competition was in the Pokal in 2005. They have won the 2.Bundesliga in 2010 though, after they were relegated from the top division in 2009, finishing rock bottom. Since then Berlin have been relegated again via the play-offs but came straight back up again for the 2012/13 campaign and last season Berlin comfortably finished 11th. Finally onto the manager!
Well then! The manager is Thomas Tuchel who recently came out of retirement to take the vacant Hertha Berlin job. The 41-year-old resigned from 1.FSV Mainz last season after finishing in 7th place with them, guiding them to a place in the UEFA Europa League and surprisingly announced his retirement weeks later, yet the German said that he 'had made a mistake' and soon returned to Football management again, as already mentioned to take the Hertha job.
