Hi, I'm Jacob; I've recently joined FM Scout in order to write my own FM2011 story. This is something which I am very pleased to be doing - I hope some reader interest will be generated in my experiences of Football Manager 2011!

FC St. Pauli

It will be my aim in this Football Manager 2011 story to establish the little-known but passionately-supported Hamburg club St. Pauli in Germany's first division (Bundesliga), to which they have been recently promoted. My task for the 2010-11 season is merely to "avoid relegation".

This will not be an easy task! I have only around €600,000 transfer budget and €135,000 wage budget (€5,000 of which is currently spare) with which to add to my squad. Luckily, I am reasonably encouraged by the players already at my disposal - judging purely by assistant reports, St. Pauli have good starters and cover in all positions, with a particularly strong midfield. The squad is short of high-profile names, but glamour and celebrity are two footballing concepts that are completely antithetic to the principles on which this famously left-wing football club was founded; I intend to keep going the traditions which have served to make St. Pauli and their distinctive brown colours a special team in Germany and one with a large base of hardcore supporters. The two players who stand out at first glance are right-back Moritz Volz - this is only because he used to play for Fulham - and experienced right-winger Gerald Asamoah.

Okay, well that's it; I just wanted to familiarise you a bit with the story I will be updating over the next few months (perhaps longer if things go well) and introduce myself. Keep posted for updates on the fortunes of myself and FC St. Pauli in the highly competitive Bundesliga!
Intrestin.
Good to see your first post mate :)

Since you've been granted a storyteller role, you can also use the blogs section to post your stories instead of the forums. It's your choice though. You could also combine forums and blogs for your stories.

For example keep posting in the forums small replies to the same topic every time you feel like updating the story, and also write a new blog-page for every game season maybe, in a recap fashion. That could perhaps make the story easier to follow for the ones who'd want to skip the extra details and see season summaries.
Thanks Stam,

I was a tiny bit confused with regards to where exactly I should publish my story - thanks for the helping hand ;)

What I think I will do is update the story in the forums on a daily basis, simply discussing my major activities in the game with St. Pauli of the day. I will make a blog post which summarises how things are going every two weeks (real time, not game time). Hopefully this will provide readers with dual opportunities to read about the small, day-to-day progressions of my game or (if they prefer) simply scan over the major advancements St. Pauli make in the Bundesliga.

Hope that's okay as a plan!
Yes, sounds good mate ;)
Looking forward to seeing that plan in action then :)
Aren't fc st.Pauli the club run by its fans?
You are correct _Man_u_barmy_army_ . It has a reputation as being a "fans'" club, hardcore supporters waving Che Guevara flags and stuff; pretty cool. I'm pleased to see them in the Bundesliga. I also think there's some kind of affiliation between St. Pauli and Celtic fans; something I saw on Football Focus or somewhere...
I'm also playing with st.pauli. my biggest transfers are bonaventure kalou, nesmachnyi, aladiere and mineiro(former chelsea player).
Nice man, haven't had much time to delve into the transfer market yet but free agents are sure to be my port of call as well!
Well i wish you luck in your time with a club with my name it it and look forward to the story.
Latest development is now posted in the Blogs section of the site ;)
How was Asamoah doing? Any news? B)

You are reading "FC St. Pauli".
