September Fixtures

So the board sold Paul Obiefule against my will and only gave me money to spend with 1 hr left in the transfer deadline day. I couldn't sign anybody in that time which means we have a weakened team for the last two months. I will leave you with Puri's wonder goal against VPS, so stay tuned!

I thought u did great against Bremen but you were unlucky against a clearly superior side, Napoli! take heart,you never know the blessing in disguise until it reveals itself!

Battle at the KuPSi Camp

Kuopion Palloseura manager Nick Johnson is headed for a collision course with the board after he was angered when the board to decided to sell Paul Obiefule, one of KuPS' better players, without giving him sufficient funds to buy a replacement.

This has caused great controversy, and anger amongst the KuPS fans, as they feel the team needs definite improvement due to a slight loss of form in recent weeks, although they have managed to knock German club Werder Bremen out of the Europa League, although proceeded to lose to the Italian club Napoli, although they did manage to score three in the process. Nick Johnson is being hailed as a tactical genius by sections of the KuPS support, and will certainly be encouraged by this in his first managerial job.

Johnson has a right to be worried about losing one of his key players, and missed out on a big signing on deadline day. He also has a right to be angry at the club. Of course, they probably used the money from the Obiefule transfer to improve the clubs financial status, but they should always be looking to improve the team. Improve the team; win trophies. Win trophies; get more money. Get more money; everyone is happy. Surely they should put the team before trying to make a profit on their investment.

So, will the tension at the club reach boiling point? Will we see any rash decisions? We'll just have to eagerly wait, in anticipation, for the next twist in Nick Johnson's KuPS career.

Thank you very much Ben :) This is amazing :P
Love it! Why did you let Dudu go, and he looked like he scored some crucial goals. Couldn't you stop the board from selling Obiefule? KuPS!

I would do story myself but I´m bit lazy so it would be flop...

I'm glad you are enjoying this :) I'd hope I'm getting all the names right due to me being puoli-Savo and a full-time Kelta Musta :P

The Reason Dudu Left...


I had gone to a furniture shop but it was closed for some reason. I decided to drive back home and to spend time with my wife. It was a surprise for me to see another car parked outside my garage. I presumed it was one of Kate's friends. I opened the door quietly and was greeted with the sound of Kate having an orgasm and the sound of a familiar voice going "Oh yes, like that!".

I rushed in to the bedroom to see Dudu fucking Kate! I just stood there in shock. They stopped immediately and turned to me, not saying anything.

Kate: "I'm sorry Nick."

She started crying.

Me: "Fuck you Kate, we're married for God's sake! We're married!"

I stormed out of the room and then out of the house, looking for alcohol to make the pain go away.
i like the update man... aw your poor heart what can fix it :p
Awesome update aside from the clearly wrong usage of Kate :P I'm gonna show her that :D

October Fixtures

Probably my best month in charge of KuPS; winning the Finnish Cup and hammering FC Inter away in a match which could ultimately decide the title race. This is why I play Football Manager, for moments like these. Sometimes it feels more important than life. Until next time, stay tuned!


Really well done Nick, looking forward to next season"
Thanks guys, but the season is not over yet. I cannot afford to take my eyes off the prize and what would be a way in to the Champpions League qualifiers; the league title
Is it not? Oh :/
