This will be my first story on this site. It will follow a young, inexperienced, but genius manager (attempting to) rise through the ranks and earn his reputation as the wolf of football.

Who Am I?

Damian Langdon

I will be playing the role of a budding fictional football manager, Englishman Damian Langdon.

Born in Sydney, Australia, but raised in London, Damian Langdon was the perfect example of an avid football fan, turning up to every Tottenham game he could afford and always watching the Sydney, England and Australia games from home. He was fairly good at the game but never good enough to get anywhere - besides, his life was going different directions, as he had been accepted in to Oxford to study economics by the time he had completed college.

He was a smart man, a quick thinker. He breezed through Oxford without struggling, even spending some of his weekends attending the Oxford United matches to pass the time.

He was fantastic with numbers. It wasn't his passion, but it was probably his greatest skill. He made thousands with ease even in his twenties - his future looked bright. In theory. But he wasn't happy. He wanted more.

Aged 29 Damian resigned from his job and went in search of coaching badges. Two years later, after managing some small time teams he is finally ready to go for his dreams.

Oxford Left Managerless After Boardroom Spat
Michael Appleton has vacated his role as Oxford United Head Coach following a disagreement with the club's owners.

News has broke this morning that Michael Appleton has handed in his resignation to the board of directors at Oxford United, Appleton candidly explaining that the club had an atmosphere that he was "not happy being a part of."

It has been suggested that the resignation comes following an argument between Michael Appleton and Oxford United chairman, Darryl Eales. Sources claim that the spat began during the club's end of season review meeting, in which Appleton and the club's owners had a disagreement.

Appleton guardedly spoke to press following his resignation, revealing very little as to it's cause:
"The board and I don't see eye to eye on a lot of things, really. It's been like this all season. It's just not an atmosphere that I am happy being a part of so I have decided to resign. I'll spare you the details."

Assistant Coach and ex-Blackburn Defender, Derek Fazackerley, is now favourite to take over from Appleton but, with the season only just coming to a close, it is expected that the owner will take his time in choosing the next manager of Oxford United.
Top notch presentation and great opening update :)

Unknown, Langdon, Appointed U's Boss

Ex-accountant, Damian Langdon, has been appointed as manager of Oxford United following Michael Appleton's departure.

A relative unknown on the football scene, Damian Langdon, a 31 year old ex-accountant, has been named manager of Oxford United, well over a month since Michael Appleton resigned from the Oxfordshire outfit. The appointment has stirred an apprehensive reaction from Oxford fans who are unsure of Langdon's qualification.

Langdon spoke briefly about his appointment with, stating:
"I can understand why people might be sceptical. As of now, there is no proof of my ability as a manager. I'd like to kindly ask fans and pundits alike to reserve judgement for now, though. See where Oxford is in December, and judge me then. I am really excited to manage this ambitious club and I truly believe I can be the one to take it to where it wants to be."

Nick Haycock, formerly of West Ham and Bishop's Stortford, has been named Assistant Manager of Oxford.
