Welcome to my Story, This story will begin at Wigan, in which I will hope to take them into the Europa League within 2 seasons, and any higher heights I reach will simply be positives, In this story I do not intend to create a long story all about Wigan, I am intending to jump ships and travel from club & maybe country, while I play, I Hope you enjoy, Update Soon :)

Interesting to see a Wigan story, want to see how you do. Good luck, will be following
Good luck McHale, I will be following :)


Breaking News: Wigan Athletic Chairman, Dave Whelan has announced the departure of Roberto Martinez from the helm of the club, Mr Whelan released this statement 'We wish Roberto, The greatest of luck and happiness in his future ventures and hope he can continue to perform at a high level in his area of work, We have come to this decision as we feel as though Roberto had taken this club as far as he possibly could and we wish to bring in a new, fresh face into the management of this club, in order to push Wigan up and away from the relegation dogfight each year, and into a mid-table, and possibly stronger team over the coming seasons'. Roberto Martinez has said he was saddened to leave the club, however understood and agreed with the decision of the board.

Dave Whelan has announced the successor of Martinez to be Joseph McHale, a young 34 year old manager only known to forum users of the game Football Manager, Many fans have sounded their anger at the appointment of such an unqualified individual and have began to ask questions of the sanity of Dave Whelan. However, Joe McHale is widely recognised on the web by multiple game forums as being a top in-game manager and many game fans have become intrigued to see if his game success could lead to real life success in the footballing industry.
Good luck with this McHale! Interested to see where you can take Wigan. Decent start :)
Good luck McHale :) will be following!
Some tactics I am planning to use through the story;

Looks interesting enough. Good luck with them :D
The tactics look quite good. looking forward to your results!
Pre-Season Results:


Transfers:

In:

Albin Ekdal: CA: PA:
Fee: 3m P/Ex (Ben Watson) Wages: 10.5k P/W

Ruben Yttergard Jenssen: CA: PA:
Fee: 1.9m Wages: 23k P/W

Out:

Albert Crusat: Bristol City - CA: PA:
Fee: 1.6m

Ben Watson: Birmingham - CA: PA:
Fee: Nathan Redmond - P/Ex

Jordi Gomez: Norwich - CA: PA:
Fee:2.7m

Franco Di Santo: Ipswich - CA: PA:
Fee: 1.4m




Joseph McHale suffered 1 defeat, 2 draws and 3 wins over his pre-season which silenced some pundits with impressive victories over sides such as: Boca Juniors, Chester & Morecambe, McHale showed fluent, passing football which pleased Wigan supporters, In terms of transfers fans were dissapointed with the sale of both Gomez & Di Santo, But saw sense in the Watson transfer as they brought in Redmond who looks set for a bright future. Fans were delighted with the signings of Albin Ekdal & Ruben Yttergard Jenssen, The Fans believe a playmaker of Jenssen's standards would bring vibrant attacking football to the DW stadium & Albin Ekdal was considered somewhat of a coup for the former Juventus player who had been attracting the attention of A.C Milan, Montpellier & Levante, The Latics supporters are said to be excited to see Ekdal step out in a Wigan strip.
Drawing 1-1 against the Reserves isn't exactly the best start but your other results seemed decent. What happened with River Plate though? :/

Not Sure, I chose not to handle frendlies myself, Assistant manager took control, I only played part in the Boca Juniors game as I felt it was a sufficient test very early in the season. Although the Assistant manager took control team still should of performed better was a strong side with my tactics I have decided to use. :)
Don't worry about the 1-1 draw with your reserves, I lose to mine all the time!
All of the three are great signings. I have had Ekdal myself and had the opportunity to sell him for 15M. I think that you shouldn't have sold Di Santo because he becomes into a great player!

Ive never really rated him, although in future updates you'll see ive come to regret it slightly, not been able to score many goals :/
