Oh my god Jack, this update when Adam gets back to the field :D :D
So great. Glad to see him signing for Bradford, this is so amazing.
23 August 2015

Dr John Dean sat at his desk hopelessly. He stared at the wall opposite him, the simple, plain black wall. He had a picture of him and John Deacey holding the Northern Premier League Premier Division Play-Off Final trophy at Horsfall Stadium.

Deep down, he wasn't sure if he would be taking part in the same kind of shot with current manager Adam Chabukiani. This was not because he thought Chabukiani wasn't good enough to win them something, it was just that Adam's arrogance and dismissive approach towards his chairman would lead him to hogging the trophy to himself.

Dean was in an impossible position. He felt like he was completely unwanted and disruptive to Head Coach Chabukiani, and would've liked to sack him. He couldn't, though. He couldn't because Adam had just been out celebrating with the clubs' fans after a 5-1 victory over AFC Fylde and a 1-0 win over Corby City. His reputation was high, and at this moment, untouchable.

Three bangs on the chairman's office door silenced the beautiful sound of the chirping blue jays outside in the trees. It was Adam.

"Mr Chairman! Dr Dean!" he shouted in from the corridor.

"Yeah, come in, Adam!" responded John through the oak frame of the door, attempting to sound cheery despite the chairman's thoughts about the young Georgian.

"Good afternoon, Mr Chairman," greeted the manager.

"Good afternoon, Mr Chabukiani," he replied, "How can I assist you today?"

Adam looked around the office that the chairman conducted his actions in. He spotted the photograph shot of Dr John Dean with Adam's predecessor, John Deacey. It was the same photo that Dean had just been studying earlier.

"Well, first of all, you can take that down right now," ordered Adam, pointing up towards the photo.

"What? The photograph?" asked Dean. He already knew what he meant, he just wanted to put the popular manager under a bit of pressure.

"Yes," he said sternly. "I'm not just the successor of Mr Deacey, as much as I enjoyed working under him. I'm the manager now. I am the new era. Mr John Deacey is in the past now, whether you like it or not. So take it down." Adam said imperatively.

John Dean felt his whole body tense up under the cold pressure of the 27-year-old man from Georgia. "Sure," he fell for Adam's demands. "I'll take it down as soon as I can,"

"No," Adam snapped back, "I want it taken down now."

Dr John Dean rose from his seat, without a reply. He walked over to the photograph of himself and John Deacey before returning to his chair.

Dean was just about to open his desk drawer to put the picture in before Adam stopped him. "No," he snarled. "Give it to me."

Dr John Dean once again gave in to his manager's demands, and obediently handed over the wooden frame. Adam pulled out a lighter before he received the picture in his hands. He had it because he was a smoker, not an addict, just a social smoker. Adam stood up and strolled over to the window, before setting the picture alight and throwing it outdoors onto the concrete.

"Now that's sorted, we can talk about what I'm really here for," Adam said to Dr Dean, returning to his position on his seat. "I want the transfer revenue increasing,"

Dr John Dean was not in the mood to argue nor negotiate with Chabukiani, and so he replied with the most unnerved "OK." that the manager had ever received.

"Ah, I'm glad we don't have any disagreements on that front, I'll have it increased to fifty per cent, thank you very much." he thanked his chairman, taking control of the 'negotiations'.

Adam simply received a slightly intimidated nod from Dr Dean, that was in acknowledgement of his request, and a request in itself for Chabukiani to leave the chairman's office. In respect of his chairman's request, Adam silently stood up, shook Dr Dean's hand and exited the room. It was definitely the easiest meeting he had ever had with... well, anyone, really. Dean seemed to just give up with arguing with Adam.

A highly-impressive month leaves us in third place in the National League North, just three points behind top-spot Boston United, who are currently unbeaten. We will face Boston in January, before doing it again near the end of the season. Just in front of us, though, is AFC Fylde, who we thrashed 5-1 at Horsfall Stadium this month, which is quite surprising.

Matthew Fletcher is our August Player of the Month after some excellent performances up front and firmly keeping the likes of our other strikers Warren Bentley and James Walshaw out of the running for the number nine spot. At the end of August, Fletcher saw himself as the joint-second top scorer in the league with five goals in seven matches.
Great start there mate! The side is definitely firing in front of goal!
You're doing very well with fair to say a crap team ;) Keep it up and loving the updates!
