Great updates Blue.
Good luck for the new challenge, if you go to Manchester :)

Matthaus Joins United

Lothar Matthaus has left his post as Sporting Lisbon manager to join Manchester United. The German had led his team to the top of the Liga ZON SAGRES table, but has been unable to resist the offer of joining United.

The German manager won several trophies in his time in Lisbon, and will be welcomed back if he decides to return, but he decided it was time to make the move. He won every game in Lisbon, and this will be an entirely different challenge for him. The club have struggled over the last two seasons, but the United board are confident Lothar Matthaus is the man to take them forward.

When asked about what he thought about signing for United, Matthaus replied “obviously I’m delighted to sign for the club. It’s going to be a massive step-up from Sporting, but I will never forget my time there, and I hope I can go back there some day. Back to United, it’s going to be a huge challenge for the club to get the season back on track, but hopefully we will come out of the other side with some silverware.

Lothar Matthaus will be on £34k p/w until June 2018.
Good Luck at United :)

I'm not IN the Champions League! I'm facing a big game against Red Bull Salzburg to stay in the Europa League!


I walked into my office ahead of my opening match at home to Norwich, and went to sit down and psych myself up. Suddenly my assistant manager, Bruno Demichilis, walked in.

"We need to talk tactics Lothar. I've prepared three for us, would you mind taking a look at them?

"Yes fine Bruno. We needed to get it sorted ahead of the Norwich game anyway."

"The first is an attacking 4-2-3-1. It should be our first choice, as it allows us to capitalise on using our best players.

"The second is an attacking 4-1-2-1-2. It focuses on attacking through the middle, and allows us to play Van Persie and Rooney, our two best strikers."

"The last tactic is one that allows us to dominate the central midfield, and play our best two strikers, like the last one."

"Those look good Bruno, we can try them out in the next few games. I need to get ready for the Norwich game now, so we'll speak later."
Wicked stuff im defo following :-)
Great run at sorting, but Man U should be a huge challenge.
Good luck in Manchester!
Just wondering, who's been winning the EPL these last few seasons?
