The Story Of An Unknown Manager Taking On The Big Guys
My name is Paul Davies I know that none of you will have heard of me I am a 30 year old nobody from a sleepy little town in Gloucestershire. My experience of football exists of playing non league local football occassionally managing them if the gaffer is working and can't get a Saturday off.
I applied for the job at Everton FC as joke to show my friends the E-mail I never in a million years expected a reply offering me an Interview. I had stated on my application that I once took Crawley Town to the Premier League on Football Manager 2010 and Won the FA cup twice with them also.
Anyway I arrived for the interview in my banged up 17 year old Renault Scenic, I hadnt even taken the Frozen car seat out of the back seat. I did however nip it through the car wash on the way. I was greeted at the gate by a charming young lady called Marie, who showed me the way through the executive suites, I still thought my mates had played an elaborate trick on me as my birthday is next month.
I sat on the most uncomfortable chair i had even had the displeasure of using waiting fo rmy name to be called through. I was wearing my Marks and Spencer suit, not that I am a flashy guy but it was the suit I had in wardrobe from my Nans funeral a couple of years ago when I hear my name called.
i entered through the doors and to my surprise Bill Kenwright was sat behind the most humungous desk I had ever seen.
Kenwright said " Well Mr Davies as Mr Koeman has left we have vacancy Sam Allardyce wont answer his phone, David Moyes wont be a welcome option I am going to offer you this chance to manage the team, would you accept ?"
Obviously I said Yes thinking wow even if I am shit im gonna be able to provide for family for life of a good 3 months wages here.
So now Here I am sat as the New manager of Everton FC, and I will keep you updated with how I get on.
The club have recntly made 3 major acquistions of which you will all be fairly familiar with so I wont bore you with any detail on them
So until next time
