2012-12-31 20:27#74869 PaukerJ : I would also like to thank to Sonalexwild and Darkstallion for being supportive and staying all night just to read my updates! I have 1000 views, and to be honest, I wouldn't have completed it because of YOU. Yes you, the reader. It's you that incentives me to keep on going with this story. Remember to comment ;)!

Sorry, I wasen't there Monday and Tuesday but your story is just tremendous!!! Congratulation for the Manager of the the Month award, you deserve it ;)

I have also two questions. What are the media predictions for Norwich this year?
And has Holt played a lot with England since you're manager of the Canaries?

And I am the reader :D !!!
Another deserved award for a terrific story and a terrific writer :) Pauker, you deserve the Nobel Prize at this stage :)
Thanks to everybody! I am grateful for so much views for my first story! Though, when I finish this career mode and earn everything I will do a poll on some teams! Holt doesn't even have a cap for England, which is getting me seriously pissed! No prob, Sonal! Plus, the two following updates will include if I qualify for Europa League and the PL :P. Media Prediction for Norwich City F.C. is 9th place :D but I will do better! Plus, our financial status is rich so expect some juicy money for next season! Thanks FM Rookie, though you should give thanks to my English teacher! Aussie thanks and I hope I can actually win that competition.

Month Report (October): We visited Salzburg and hoped that Metalist would slip against Feyenoord, which we had one the last match-day of the EL. A great solo run by Marin and took his chance by faking a shot and just tap the ball in. Not long after, Bennett headed the ball from a corner and celebrated by rocking the baby. Right before half time, Weiss took his chance from Walke and scored a great goal. After a lapse of concentration from Ayala, Nielsen scored a goal. Jonas Olsson took the lead by heading into our goal from a corner kick. Again, Bennett headed in a goal for us to take the lead. Not long after, Destro scored an amazing goal outside the penalty area. In the end, Howson took a shot to Foster's left post and scored what proved to be the winner. Since Destro was injured during training and was getting back into his feet, Holt captained our side to a glory win. He headed the first cross from Weiss to take us into the lead. This time though, it would come from Estigarribia and Holt scored another header. In the dying minutes of the match, Howson again scored at the penalty area to tap it in. Great, a win at Anfield! We headed to Kharkiv, where Metalist had 3 points and I had 6. Marin quickly scored a goal by confusing 3 players one being well known Papa Gueye. Later, Bassong scored after Bennett headed the ball in the far post, where Bassong tapped the ball in. Not long after, we were awarded a penalty but Holt missed his second penalty of the season. We dominated Metalist and are on route to qualify on the Europa League. I am the only team to have 9 points in the group while the other 3 teams have 3 points meaning anything can happen in this group. We headed to the Emirates Stadium with wins in all matches and I wanted that run to continue. Things got bad when we started losing with a Vermaelen header from a corner kick.

Norwich Player of the Month
Grant Holt
Why: He has been great for me and with Destro struggling with injuries, he has taken his spot back on. I mean, both are really good players and they are really hood.

Norwich Young Player of the Month
Ryan Bennett
Why: He is practically my Ian Evatt when I played Blackpool in FM10, he scored goals from corner kicks or he headed the ball and someone was there. Great defender, plus I compared him to Michael Dawson and they are the same thing!
What a incredible month :) Your best set of results if my memory is good :D , you are a superb writer and manager.
And thank you for answering to my questions bro ;)
Month Report (November): We start a month with frisking United, but I can beat them because I did beat them last season with a less talented team. OMG! OMG! Holt just scored! At the thirteenth minute. OMG HOLT ILY <3 *no homo*. He took not one, but two MUFC defenders and scored against De Gea! Great! Another home match, as we play Metalist and a draw would classify us to the next round. Oh drats. Taison was left alone by Russell and took a shot at goal where Ruddy was left on his feet. Oh yeah! Estigarribia with another goal in the Europa League! He broke off the defender and took his chance and scored an amazing goal! We draw, but we still qualify for the First Knockout Round of the Europa League :D. If we win our next match, we will finish first in the group stages, which I hope to do! FUCKING OVER CONFIDENCE! I came to Newcastle thinking I could have a good day after a hard day's at work. No, Newcastle wouldn't budge. FUCK YOU NEWCASTLE! I just don't want to talk about this match. Sorry about cursing, I am so tired and mad. Sorry :P? Will you accept my apologies? Next, we had to go to London and play West Ham. To be honest, West Ham will always be a hard opponent and I expected the guys to bounce back from that terrible defeat, but the players were still in shock from the previous match as the scoreline tells. 4-1. Ricardo Vaz Te and my full backs are to blame. Didac and Russell were back from a terrible match from Newcastle and they did it again. Fox is so playing the next match. Don't really want to talk about the goals scored by the opposition or mine. Let's get back to the next match. Brighton. I need to win. After conceding 9 in the last 2 matches I really do need to win. Brighton just ascended to the PL and I need to win this match so I'll play a strong side against them. Great. 4 points out of 12 I could've got. This month blows. He receive Swansea at Carrow Road where we REALLY need to grab points. Yeah, Holt again! He scores once more! He is still a great striker even when he is 32 years old!! I think he's level with Destro now! Oh no. Graham scored a rebound from Ruddy. Noo! OH YES HE DID IT AGAIN!! HOOOLT! He scores a late winner for us (so it looks like). Yes a fantastic header from the 32 year old. Wins the Norwich Player of the Month again. This month blowed. Two big losses, two wins and two draws. A little bit of encouragement might bring this team a great

Norwich Player of the Month
Grant Holt
Why: Scored three important goals in 2 important matches which I picked up 6 points. Thanks to him we have won!

Norwich Young Player of the Month
Oskar Hijlemark
Why: He performs so good and it's a bargain. Guys don't cheap this guy out because he costs about 800k in every save! Buy him!
How many times has Holt been your player of he month ? :D
Uncountable times Sonal! I have a question for you :P. How many hours and how many comments have you done here at my Norwich story?
This is my 16th comment on your story.
