Football's Best

Johnson: "Diego the greatest"
Kuopion Palloseura manager, Nick Johnson, was interviewed by a number of reporters from Finnish broadcasters today. Amongst the questions asked, he was asked on his opinion on who is the greatest footballer in history? This was his answer:

Nick Johnson: "For me, Diego Maradona has to be the greatest player in the history of football. He was everything you could want in a player, and more! Some people say that Lionel Messi and Christiano Ronaldo are better players than Maradona was, but I think that it is hard to compare two or more different players, especially over different generations. For me, Diego could just about pull off anything and everything with consumate ease. He was a lethal finisher, had a creative mentality and was a fierce leader."

When asked about a public figure who has stalked him for the last few months, Nick Johnson had this to say:

Nick Johnson: "I feel sorry for the guy, really. He doesn't know what he is doing or of the consequences of his actions, which is a shame. I am sure that if he did not have his sexual addictiveness, he would be a really nice person, or is "he" a "she"? I am aware that he loves getting hand-cuffed while being bent over the bonnet of a car because of the sexual positions that these actions resemble. This guy is a felon and must be stopped before the entire population of Kuopio is raped anally!"
Auch Nick.

That one hurt my prostate

League Table

Here are my fixtures for August:

So, we had a very good month, beating both first and second placed sides in the league in FC Inter and MYPA. We now sit second thanks to these victories and we are also up against Werder Bremen in the next qualifying rounds of the Europa League. This is a very tough tie and it will be hard to hold on to any sort of draw, home or away. So I will leave you with KuPS' Goal of the Month. Please comment belo if you are enjoying this style or the story in general. If you don't, comment too. Until next time, stay tuned!

I agree. Diego Maradona is the greatest player ever. :D. The Stalker though. :O
Great win against Inter! How many more games do you have left to win the league?

33 games in the league season so 16 left for me :)
Nice! Litmanen finally did something :P ;). You are in CL contention area! How much money do they give you if you qualify for CL? Any transfers coming in?

Old Friends

Dean Ashton was seen having dinner with an old friend Nick Johnson, its understood that Ashton And Johnson were child hood friends when Ashton made it as a football player Nick always wanted to be a manager and had to go true it the hard way making a name for himself. While Ashton was already known in the world of football and for him to get a job was well easier.

Dean said that he looks up to Nick both as a manager and a friend, and the reason he was chatting to him was about the last few league games and Cup games. Dean asked Nick how do you keep your players fully fit all the time. We don’t know what Nick Said but it seemed to of worked for Sunderland .

Also dean said that Nick will be one of the best managers in the game if he keeps working hard and stick by what way he run’s his team. Ashton Speaks highly of Nick and even asked him to become an Assistant Manager at the Stadium Of Light, Were Nick kindly Refused and said he does not want any hand outs. We all hope that Nick Johnson Makes it big in the Footballing world.

No prize money from the league, I'm afraid. I would get a few hundred thousand from TV rights, sponsorship deals and round prizes though. Two transfers in, will reveal in the next update :)

A big thank you to FM King for his wonderful post :D

What is this? And they were "seen having dinner together" ? :P
