This will be the last story I will write if I get data loss again. So fingers crossed. I am going to do a story with a team looking to get back to the big time. And some were that I have never managed in any football manager game. So I hope use all enjoy reading this.

Monaco revel that David Beckham has joined the club after leaving L.A Galaxy the player has Agreed a 2 year deal with the club. But the deal is not what we were all expecting. Beckham has Signed as a player manager for two years. Beckham has said this is what he wanted and rejecting offers from P.S.G and West Ham as they would not give him the role he wanted. I am really happy that the Broad and staff have giving me the chance to not only play here but also Manage the team its going to be hard to do the two but I will give it my all.

Association Sportive de Monaco Football Club (French pronunciation: ​[a.sɔ.sja.sjɔ̃ spɔʁtiv də mɔnaˈko]; commonly referred to as AS Monaco or simply Monaco) are a French football club based in Fontvieille, Monaco. The club was founded in 1924 and currently play in Ligue 2, the second tier of French football. The team plays its home matches at the Stade Louis II located within Fontvieille. Monaco is managed by Claudio Ranieri and captained by Andreas Wolf.
Though based in Monaco, the club is regarded as a French club, as the club plays in the French football league system, and because the principality of Monaco is not a member of UEFA. Monaco is one of the most successful clubs in France, having won seven league titles and five Coupe de France trophies. The club has also regularly competed in European football having been runners-up in both the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup and UEFA Champions League in 1992 and 2004, respectively.

Monaco enjoyed success in the 1970s and late 1980s during the managerial tenures of Lucien Leduc and Arsène Wenger, during which the club was amongst the leading lights of European football. Monaco's traditional colours are red and white, and the club is known as Les Rouge et Blanc (English: The Red and White). Monaco is also a member of the European Club Association. In December 2011, two-thirds of the club was sold to an investment group led by Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev.

Please Note that i used data editor to bring beckham to the club and put him on a two year deal were then he will retire.

Great News

Sitting in my office I get a letter from the head man. Sorry I could not meet you today but here is what I am giving you for the season please take a look over it.

Transfer Budget 15 Million
Wage 463k 96 left
I hope these will help you get us back into the 1st Divison i hope you can do what we want you to do David the club is behind you all the way and if you want to let the staff go and bring in your own that is fine. And any problems I will be back next Monday.

I sit there after reading that and 15 million loads for this club with that sort of money I can get some great young players for the team. And I have to win the league this season I am pretty sure I can do that. And I am sure that the club has faith in me to get the job done.

There is a knock on my door ,Come In, David here is the preseason match’s and training camp. And I am also happy to say that every player is fit for the up coming Camp and Match’s. Ok Thank you.
That’s great news every player fit now I can see who fits in my plans. Should be a good camp and Match’s bet get on with it.


Preseaon was a great start for me with all the players being fit I had to change the team every game to see who was in my plans for the season and who was out. After all the games were played I called two players into my office and I told them I would have to let them go. They both wanted to stay really badly. I felt like a cunt so I let them go out on loan and impress me on loan. I really should stand up and be a manager I make the rules not the players but I felt bad I will give them a chance.

The training camp went really well the players pushed them self’s for the team and showed me they are up for the new season. With the heat of the new season coming in some of the players know what they have to do if they want a starting 11 spot. I can understand that some of them were always 1st choice but not anymore, every spot is up for grabs.

The match’s were great to be a part of as a player and manager we played four altogether and won 3 drew one. I thought that was great as I changed the team every game so the players can gel with each other and player as a team. And that is what I want this season.
Lugano Away 4-2 Win
Besancon Away 3-0 Win
Louhans Away 4-1 Win
GF Away 1-1 Draw
I am happy with the match’s and I hope the team is ready for a long season.

I have brought in two new players that will play apart of the success of the team this season and I hope they can fit into this type of football. The two players both have bags of talent I just hope they show it.
Wilfried Zaha
A young Striker with bags of pace will also play this season. I think he is going to be a big player for the club and still only 19 cost us 7 Million

Francis Coquelin
Played for Arsenal but never broke into the team will play a good part this season for his new team and was happy to pay 8 Million for him still only 21 is going to be a great leader one day.

Will update at the end of every month thanks for reading .
