It's a miracle! I am ready for another 135 pages of pure awesomeness!
Thanks for all the support so far guys, appreciate each and every single word :)
Dota changed you Glenn. It changed you for the worse :P No seriously I look forward to your updates.
Your story has to be an everlasting one Glenn! There is no way we can say goodbye to it yet and I'm glad you're not stopping. You've travelled so far, written so much, put so much energy and effort in to this it would be a shame to stop it now :P

So on that note...WHERE'S THE NEXT UPDATE haha
Soon, soon :))

A Champions League Reunion

Bayern Munich will play their second Champions League game tomorrow when they take on Celtic at Celtic Park.

Bayern will be looking to defend their Champions League title and opened up their campaign with a 1-1 draw against Nottingham Forest two weeks ago.

It will also be a reunion for David Beckham, with the likes of Celtic's Gabby Agbonlahor and Matthew Lowton having played under the management of Beckham while they were Aston Villa players.

They're not the only duo who have played under Beckham, with Fraser Forster working with Beckham as an England international, and Japanese right-back Yuto Nagatomo turning out for Aston Villa in the past.

Today, Sky Sports managed to get an interview with Agbonlahor and Lowton.

When asked about the imminent match, Agbonlahor had an excited buzz about him. "To play a club of Bayern Munich's stature is obviously very exciting for all of us. We have of course played in the Champions League before but it feels great every time we play a big team because we know they are going to give us a huge challenge, something we relish.

"No one are tipping us to get out of this Champions League group but I think we shouldn't be underestimated. We're the best team in Scotland and if we work hard enough we can definitely get into the Knockout Rounds of this competition."

When asked about his former manager, unfortunately, the Celtic veteran seemed a bit more dispassionate. "It will be nice to see David Beckham again," was his simple response.

Lowton, however, said, "David was a great presence when I played at Aston Villa and to think that I was under the management of someone who went on to win the Champions League is incredible.

"I would like to thank him for all he's done for me at Aston Villa despite our short time working together and I'll of course be greeting him when we see each other tomorrow."

Celtic boast a couple of stars in their ranks including a lethal strike partnership of Stevan Jovetic and Harry Kane.

"Stevan and Harry will be crucial tomorrow," Lowton told Sky Sports. "They are the best strikers at the club so of course I assume they'll be playing. They've struck up a decent partnership and it'll only flourish against Bayern Munich."
WOW Celtic have great strikers. Nice to see some old faces ay :D

Indeed :D
Great update, glad its continuing :P
Remember all the money stuff I promised if you do really well. COME ON DIE BAYERN!
Great update :)
Great update my dear friend. Y U NO ONLINE
How did I miss this. You should batter Celtic, no offence to any fans but I don't rate Scottish football at all. That's my Dad's fault really. Oh and great update Glenn.
Well, no matter how hard I tried, I can't really get myself back into the save anymore. Every time I get Football Manager on, I just find myself making this face ---> :/ everytime my brain suggests to me to open that save and give it a go. I can't really do something I am not interested in anymore, so I have decided to call this story to an end. I apologize for disappointing many of my readers.

But I am very happy that David Beckham: From Hero to Zero could get to where it is now. Countless Story of the Month nominations, top viewed story, top replied story - it's been a fantastic journey and I have to thank each and every reader for this. Thank you. Without you, all this would not have been possible.

Again, I'm very apologetic for letting this story end but I have no regrets over how the story's been. It was a wonderful story to go through with all of you. I still remember I wanted to quit in the first season because of bad results with Aston Villa, and I am surprised and elated that I've managed to take this save all the way to 2020.

Once again... THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU!

Do not fret though.

Football Manager 2014 awaits...

... And so does a new Glenn T story when it comes out ;)

So you new story-writers better be on your toes, because I'm not leaving the writing scene permanently. It's only a holiday.
