Hi guys, suppose a quick introduction can never go amiss! Well I’m Josh, I have been a member of FM Scout for a good few years now, but been away for about two! So this is my first proper attempt at a story for a very long time, so any feedback especially constructive criticism is appreciated to help me find my feet again!
As for my writing style I will be switching in and out of journalism style reporting and overall monthly reports. By this I mean, for transfer news, big news (such as my first entry today, me joining BVB) and important matches such as cup finals, I will be doing news report style.
As an entire month I will be doing it as a report, so screenshots of the fixtures/results, analysis of the games, player of the month etc etc. To prevent clashes between the styles say my fixtures lined up as followed: Mainz away, Berlin home, German Cup Semi Final, Munich away and then Hannover home. I will do a short report on the opening two games, a journalist entry on the semi-final and then a small report next entry on the following two games, as to make the semi-final still a big deal and not spoiled etc etc.
Below is merely the opening entry, expect better when things start happening
Hope you enjoy and please feel free to throw constructive advice my way as it is more enjoyable knowing other people enjoy reading it
Unknown manager Joshua Bean, appointed head coach of Borussia Dortmund
Following the departure of fan favourite manager Jurgen Klopp, the Dortmund hierarchy acted quickly to get their new man.
For Mainz manager Thomas Tuchel, he couldn’t believe his luck when he was approached to take over one of the best teams in the country, regardless of last season’s performance.
But it is believed that an immediate break down in relations with the Dortmund hierarchy over the expectations for the season, saw Tuchel take the drastic action of walking away from the club claiming “The expectations placed on me were not realistic in line with the current strength of Bayern Munich. No one can succeed in that environment.”
With Tuchel’s comments putting off any potential managers, Borussia Dortmund have shocked the footballing community by taking what appears to be a very big risk in hiring unknown head coach Joshua Bean, whose only experience before this was coaching his local football team.
Bean has not yet been reached for comment, but rumours swirling around Dortmund are that he is simply employed as a YES man.
It will be interesting to see how such a young manager can break off the shackles of the board and create a dynasty.
