Hopefully when I get the game on the second I can do a story as well, and it will look similar to this ( I had already planned out the format beforehand :P ). Maybe we can have a trio of stories xD. But anyway, looking good. I'm a Liverpool fan, so I'll be reading. Don't you need another striker though? And an AMC(backup for Stevie-G).

Thanks Glenn. :)
How is this bad news for you? Surely people would be interested in seeing the differences that two different managers introduce in to the same football club. (quoted from Kiwi)

Maybe we can have a trio of stories. xD I won't buy a striker yet but I am in talks with a winger/attacking midfielder at the moment. Suso and Shelvey are solid back-up for Gerrard anyway.

^^Just ask me or @or.dabool when you have the game if you need help with your story. :)
Guys, 1600 views in a week already! This is just awesome! Thank you SOOO much! :D

Unfancied Cole Loaned Out To Swansea


"It was announced earlier today that Liverpool's Joe Cole has been sent to Swansea on loan for the season. There is a clause in this deal which will allow Swansea to buy Joe Cole on a permanent basis for £2.5M. It is believed that Liverpool manager Ronnie Whelan could not find a place in his team for Cole but at Swansea, he will get his chance."

Joe Cole: "I need first-team football and that is why I am going to Swansea on loan. Hopefully I can do well and help the team to progress."

Kelly Headed To Stamford Bridge


"Liverpool have accepted a £9.5M bid for Martin Kelly from league rivals Chelsea. Kelly travelled to London where he passed his medical and agreed personal terms. This deal has come as a shock to football fans accross England as Martin Kelly had just started making a name for himself at the Anfield Club."

Martin Kelly: "I thank Liverpool for giving me the chance to play at the highest level in England and in Europe. But I need to go to a team where I can star and Chelsea is the place for me. I want to break in to the first team and stay there."

Meeting With Board

Me: "I know we were not great in our friendlies but we will perform much, much better. That I'm sure."


Thomas Werner: "Look, don't worry about the pre-season, just make sure that you get at least seven points from our three opening league games."


John Henry: "But before that we need to secure qualification to the Europa League proper."


Me: "Yeah, we will try our best to start well. We need the wins and we will fight to the death for them. However, I do believe that the training facilities need a revamping."

Thomas Werner: "I agree. We will discuss this at the end of the season but we will invest £2.5M in to the reconstruction."
1-4 to Anderlecht? What happened there?

Nice job getting so much for Kelly! Who's his replacement?

Wasn't my first team vs Anderlecht.

I brought Flanagan up to the senior team.
Are you sure Flanagan is enough?

Because I've found that (atleast in FM12) full-backs that get forward whenever possible always leave huge defensive holes. So Vrsaljko became first choice ahead of Johnson in my FM12 Liverpool save. :P

Have full-backs on defensive duty. I have full faith in my youth.
Shame about Anderlecht but it's just a friendly. Good job so far rookie!

Good going, Rookie. Do you play your own friendlies, or let your assistant take care of them? I've noticed he does a better job rotating my squad than I do.
Good luck against Vitesse.

I'm talking about when they are defensive duty. I never use full-backs on support or attack unless I'm playing without wingers.

I'm not worried at all. Flanagan is solid for me and will perform.
Apologies guys! Internet crash means that there will be no livecom for first post, just result and analysis!
Shame about the Anderlecht game and good luck against Vitesse.
