It was a nice warm summer evening as I sat in my local public house drinking what was on my first drink of the night, I stepped outside for a cigarette and my mobile phone rang. It was a withheld number so I did not want to answer it but curiosity got the better of me and I finally answered.

" Mr Davies, is that you came a strong Welsh accent over the phone" I answered swiftly with a simple Yes, The Welshman replied "This is Huw Jenkins chairman of Swansea City Football Club an I ..... I Cut in Gaz Piss Off I know its you ! and I started laughing.

No Mr Davies this is genuinely Huw Jenkins I am outside the pub your in, Your Girlfriend said you would be here when I rang your house phone"

I stepped outside and I could not believe my eyes it wasn't a hoax or a lie and definatel;y not Gaz. Mr Jenkins invited me into his car and asked me to to go with him to Landore ( Swansea City FC's Training Complex ).

We Arrived within a few hours, Huw had already offered me The managers job after the owner Jason Levein had been on a Coaching Course I had been on, I hadn't a clue who he was but apparently he had been impressed with me.

I met with club captain Leon Britton and star player Gylfi Sigurdsson. It was explained to them who I was Leon and Gylfi were true gents and said they didn't mind introducing me to the rest of the Squad !

So I am now sat here in my swanky new office wondering how the hell I got here, I have just completed my first Press Conference introducing me to the World as Swansea City FC's new manager.

I have set myself 4 Targets

  • Top Half Finish
  • 5th Round FA Cup
  • 4th Round EFL Cup
  • Keep Star Players

I have been given a small transfer kitty as I have to prove myself to get a larger one. The Budgets I have been given are £4.04m Transfers £1,411,173 Wages.

I'm not sure what I can achieve on this, but I know that Swansea have a great squad with many leaders. I will keep you all updates as we go.

Great start man!!! I hope this one doesn't fail on you like the Wolves
Great start mate. Very interesting to read
Great start and a really nice layout, it's really frustrating losing saves so hopefully this one works for you!

Well today we had a guest in Harry Redknapp visit the Training Complex at Landore, I was Talking to Harry for a while trying to extract as much useful knowledge that he could give me.
After a while I asked Harry if he knew of any Defensive Midfielders without a contact that I might be able to snap up, I didn't actually expect an answer but he told me That Lassana Diarra would probably be interested in Joining as he was looking for a new club and he kept in touch with Harry since his Portsmouth days together.

The following day I managed to sign him, what a coup ex Real Madrid star signed for little old me, why ?

That same day I received an E-mail saying that Ronaldinho had read the contract offe that I had sent him and was willing to join up for the season. I didn't even think he would know I offered let alone sign, This kid has done it all Champions League, World Cup and now at 34 signed for Swansea City AFC.

The First signing that I am actually shelling out any money for is a young Mexican striker Erick Torres, I saw him playing last season whilst I was studying my badges and he was at Houston Dynamo in the MLS, a keen eye for goal, quick feet and a work horse exactly what I was looking for to partner Fernando Llorente. I managed to get this deal done for £5.25m a snip at half the price he already has been capped for his country 4 times and has scored too.

I am now about to start my first ever pre-season in professional management, so far I am loving it but my girlfriend isn't overly happy at relocating to Wales, but Llorente's wife has made friends with her and the 2 are now happy shopping together in town. I hope Fernando performs cause if I ever have to sell I am going to get a real earful at home.

Least she has also got a new job though she has been chosen as the new face of Nescafe Gold adverts so you might be seeing her soon on your TVs

Holy shit Torres and Ronaldinho. Damn those are great signings


Well to cut a Long story short I went into the local pub near to my new house and I got chatting to a dutch lad I went to college with who goes by the name of Mr Mike! he got me very drunk on a fair few Captain Morgan Spiced Rums and dared me to by send an e-mail to Emile Heskey offering him a contract. Heskey replied instantly with it signed. So yeah there you go I have signed Emile Heskey

Great signing
The Man, The Myth, The Legend!
Oh for god sake... why did you listen to Michael. Mistake no.1
Just a few under the radar signings mate ;)
