New Club, Meetings and Transfer Whatnot
'I sat in the boardroom, waiting for Mr. Fernandes. He walked in and I shook his hand. "Hello Henri," he said.
I answered " Pleased to meet you Mr. Fernandes!"
"Please call me Tony."
And then we talked about the club. The team policies, what he expected me to do and finally how much money I would get in my Transfer and Wage budgets. I told him that we could achieve a top half finish, and he rewarded me with £5.25 m to spend!
After meeting the squad, I had to tell Ji-Sung Park the honest truth. I don't think that he was cut out for captain. He only had an influence over players that were deadwood, mostly. I decided to replace Ji-Sung Park with Ryan Nelsen. Shaun Derry would be Vice-Captain.
Afterwards, I arranged, and cancelled, some friendlies. They would be against bad clubs ( no offense) to boost the morale, after we would thrash the living daylights out of them! I needed it after nearly everyone was upset about my new captain.
Next, I went to Brazil to ask about Wellington New, Adryan, Mattheus and Doria. All got transfer offers matching their release clauses. I also sneakily got some of my scouts to scout there, to increase my knowledge in Brazil, which is full of youngsters which you can get for very, very cheap.
We also made offers for Jores Okore of F.C. Nordsjælland, again matching his release clause of 1.3m. We approached Royston Drenthe and John Mensah, who were rejected by Real Madrid and Lyon respectively.
Of course this meant that I would need to offload some central defenders and later that day, I knew who needed to go. It had to be Anton Ferdinand. He already didn't want to stay because of the pressure of the new signings and decided to transfer list himself. Good riddance, I say.'
Note: I want this to be a bit more audience involved than usual, so feel free to comment about what you want me to do next. However, i am currently through all the pre-season, just a bit of back up so there is always something. But remember, the transfer window is still open. I need a CAM, ST, LM or LB. 5 million to spend, Premier League Squad has one more space.
