Introduction


Erm...Hello I'm BackPostHeader. You might (probably not) know me from my YouTube channel 'BackPostHeader'.

I was searching for Football Manager tips when I came across this website. And I read Glenn T's David Beckham and Liverpool stories, which I thought were brilliant. Since I'm close to ending my school year I thought I might try this story lark. I have no idea if my writing is good enough for you but I just wanted to try and do one of these to see if I enjoy it.

This story will be on Manchester City the team I support. The manager will be myself, Omar Laska, his nationality will be Moroccan (my dad originates from there) and his preferred formation is the 4-2-3-1 wide style. I'll be trying to get more english players into the squad, and then conquer the world! :)

Before I start I'll do a list of players I'm interested in.

Robert Green- He could be good backup for Joe Hart and would give us more English players, which we really need.

Luke Garbutt- I really like this guy in real life, he's a good young left back which we need.

Aaron Cresswell- He's just joined West Ham but I will try to get him in season 2.

Paul Pogba- Yaya Toure's successor will be very expensive but surely worth it.

Kevin De Bruyne- I don't think he'll join in real life but he could be a great signing.

Raheem Sterling- Very good player who joined us yesterday.

Marco Reus- He's been linked with us and I love his speed and dribbling ability.

Patrick Herrman- He's a very quick, direct winger.

Enes Unal- A player we signed in real life as well. A great young Turkish prospect.

I'm hoping to play around 3-5 seasons and create a great team. These are my aims for each season.

Season 1- I want to get into the top 4 teams in the league, develop some youth players and get to at least the semi final of the league cup or FA cup.

Season 2- Finish at least 2nd in the league, get into the champions league quarter finals and sign and create an english core.

Season 3- Win the premier league, get to the champions league quarter finals, win either the FA cup or the league cup and start to have players like karim rekik, marcos lopes and jason denayer in the first team.

Season 4- Win the premier league, get into the champions league semi finals, win either FA or league cup, have an english player in the first 11 in attack, midfield, defence and goalkeeper, begin managing a national team.

Season 5- Win all titles, have english core with at least 4 players with 5 star+ potential/ability.

Before signings I will play this team.


I am using the 15.3.0 update and the fmscout.com Scorpio skin.

#WelcomeRaheem


#WelcomeRaheem

Raheem Sterling has joined Manchester City after months of negotiations with Liverpool. He has been signed in a straight swap for Jesus Navas. He is earning £105,000 a week and will play on the right wing.


In his first interview with City he said that he was happy to get the deal done and to be playing with world class players in the Champions League and winning things year in, year out. He has been well received by the City faithful who feel he has been signed for a bargain, but are aware of his attitude 'problem', the Liverpool fans however Liverpool fans are up in arms against Brendan Rodgers and feel that Sterling had years left at Liverpool.



He will wear the number 7 shirt. And has now put fresh doubt over James Milner's future. With the former Aston Villa man out of contract in 12 months.

Also moving to Anfield is Bosnian Edin Dzeko. He has been signed for £26,000,000 to beef up the Liverpool strikeforce after the loss of Luis Suarez. He will earn around £180,000 a week.

http://i1.mirror.co.uk/incoming/article5749392.ece/ALTERNATES/s615/Raheem-Sterling-and-Edin-Dzeko.jpg

Dzeko's signing has received mixed reactions from the Kopites, with some stating his pricetag was grossly inflated and that they could have gotten a better player for his fee. Updates from Blue Moon Rising TV and The Redmen TV may come soon.

#WelcomeFabian



Fabian Delph has become the second signing of the summer for Manchester City after completing a 12 million pound move from Aston Villa. This has come as a surprise to some as Delph had recently spoke of his loyalty to Villa and how he loved the club. This act of 'betrayal' has not been taken well by the Villa faithful or manager Tim Sherwood, who has branded Delph a 'two-faced c*nt'.

http://cdn.images.express.co.uk/img/dynamic/67/590x/secondary/Tim-Sherwood-283936.jpg

He has expressed his desire to test himself at the top level of English and European football. It is believed he will start as a squad player and the 3rd choice midfielder behind former Porto man Fernando and City vice captain, Yaya Toure.


He will wear the number 8 shirt as Mercurial French playmaker Samir Nasri has been linked with Juventus, Chelsea and Atletico de Madrid.



#WelcomeJack


Also joining City is England Under-21 goalkeeper Jack Butland from Stoke City for 6 million pounds. He is the third player to join, as well as being the third English player to join also. City now have three goalkeepers expecting to get first team football, meaning that Willy Caballero has been linked with a return to Spain on loan.


Butland has expressed his happiness at having faith from Omar Laska to join Manchester City. It is widely believed that Laska wants to squeeze the very best from Joe Hart and push him to perform well.

Community Shield provides first piece of silverware for Jones


Manchester City have won the Community Shield for the 5th time in their history after a 3-1 win over FA Cup holders Arsenal, thanks mainly to a matchwinning brace from Sergio Aguero.


The match started off badly for the champions when they were carved open by the Gunners just 32 seconds in. Morgan Schneiderlin opened up the gap between Bacary Sagna and Vincent Kompany and the Chilean did the rest, with a majestic sweeping finish past Joe Hart.

City responded brilliantly though and applied heavy pressure to Arsenal until David Silva squirmed away from Aaron Ramsey and was able to find Sergio Aguero, the Argentine made no mistake, and managed to stab home.

Gael Clichy and Aaaron Ramsey battle for the ball in the 2nd half.

His 2nd goal was vintage Aguero, Silva again heavily involved. The Spaniard ghosted past several of the Arsenal team before allowing the ball to roll to Aguero who, with a sensational turn, hit a venemous drive into the bottom right corner of the Arsenal goal.

Silva and 'Kun' celebrate the the latter's 2nd goal.

The scoring was rounded off by new boy Fernando after the Citizens attack pounced on an error by Wojiech Szczesny. The Polish stopper sliced a goal kick toward James Milner who unselfishly laid the ball to Fernando who applied the finishing touch.

http://i2.mirror.co.uk/incoming/article4553880.ece/ALTERNATES/s615/Manchester-City-v-Manchester-United-Premier-League.jpg

The City fans were happy with win and are hoping that the team will kick on from this and win more titles. We also managed to catch up with Arsene Wenger, Omar Jones and players from both teams.

What They Said


''I'm very pleased with the comeback, we showed good character to come back from this and not let our heads drop. We could have let our heads go down, and conceded 4 or 5 so it's very pleasing to have won.''

~Omar Jones (Manchester City manager)

''It was a very strange game that just slipped away, we needed to concentrate more and we will try to improve on this in the future.''

~Arsene Wenger (Arsenal manager)

''We should have done better in this game after Alexis put us in front. We'll look to move past it but credit to Man City they deserved it.''

~Aaron Ramsey (Arsenal midfielder)

''We always aim to win trophies and this i what we wanted to do. It's not a Premier League or Champions League but it's a morale boost and something gives us all confidence.''

~Vincent Kompany (Manchester City captain)

''I'm very happy with the win and how we played, I think I played well and so did the team. Now we want to win more under Jones.''

~David Silva (Manchester City midfielder)

Player of the Month

It can only be Sergio. He's scored eight goals and has been a real matchwinner for us, as well as winning the Premier League player of the month. If he can carry on this kind of form then it will be a very fruitful campaign for us.

Summary


The opening month of the league season was very promising, if we can tighten up at the back and Joe Hart plays well on his return from a sprained ankle then we've got a real chance to win silverware. Transfer Deadline day is incoming, stay tuned for a last ditch scramble for one more signing.
Looking really good so far, strange but interesting to see you're starting Butland instead of Hart though!
Great start to the season mate, Aguero's on fire!
yeezus, aguero is on firee man
2015-07-20 07:31#216596 Glenn T : Looking really good so far, strange but interesting to see you're starting Butland instead of Hart though!

Thanks it's awesome to receive praise from such a great story writer! Hart was injured with a sprained ankle and I'm trying to get rid of Caballero.

2015-07-20 07:46#216597 Devzie92 : Great start to the season mate, Aguero's on fire!

Thank you! I really like your story, as you can see I based this update on yours. Aguero has been immense so far!! :)

2015-07-20 14:58#216612 Pauker : yeezus, aguero is on firee man

Yeah he is, I hope he can continue his form. :)

#WelcomeReus


On Transfer Deadline Manchester City announced the signing of Marco Reus from Borussia Dortmund for £28,500,000 along with the services of Frenchman Samir Nasri. The deal went right to the wire with the Football Association allowing the champions another hour to finalise the paperwork.


Reus has been linked with moves to several clubs for some time now. It looked as though he was staying at the Signal Iduna Park after signing a new contract with no get out clause, but it seems the pulling power of the Etihad was too hard for Reus to resist.


With Reus' arrival signals the end Samir Nasri's time in Manchester, after a storming start to 2013/14 an injury hit second helf took some of the gloss off of a brilliant season. But frustration has been growing for the former Arsenal man to finally justify the £22,000,000 fee paid to the Gunners back in 2011. His poor wall in the 2-3 Manchester Derby defeat to United at the end of 2012 (pictured), his red card for stupidly squaring up to Sebastian Bassong in the same season. And an abundance of inconsistent performances meant that many City fans were happy to see the back of Nasri.

http://i3.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/incoming/article667477.ece/ALTERNATES/s615/C_71_article_1595917_image_list_image_list_item_0_image.jpg

Both players have remained relatively media shy after joining their respective clubs but Reus did allow plenty of time for autographs and photos with Manchester City fans outside the entrance to the Colin Bell stand, the traditional entrance for new City signings.

It is understood that Reus will play on the left wing, in a battle with James Milner who has started this season on fire with some terrific performances which also earned 'Jimbo' a new contract. On the opposite flank Raheem Sterling has made a stellar start to his City career and will hope to lock down the right flank over the course of the season. Handily Reus can also operate as the main striker should Sergio Aguero and Wilfried Bony not be able to play.

Player of the Month

A really tough choice between Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero. But since he's again been our matchwinner this month. Was in unstoppable form against Arsenal, scored the winner against a tough to break down Maccabi Tel Aviv and along with Marco Reus dug us out of a rather deep hole against West Brom and has again been in scintillating form.

Summary


We kicked on from our promising start with two huge wins against Arsenal and Chelsea, that has made me very pleased. The emergence of Angelino and Brandon Barker has shown we can develop our own youth players. In October our Champions League campaign resumes with ties against FC Schalke04 (home) and Sporting Lisbon (away), as well as games against Crystal Palace, Swansea and Southampton in the Premier League and Palace again in the Capital One Cup.
