Chapter One: Home sweet home.
6th May 2013: Wolverhampton Wanderers achieve their second successive relegation after a humiliating defeat from Brighton sending them to the NPower League 1.
Steve Morgan: "Clearly a lot of mistakes have been made over the past two seasons and I understand fans' pain, anger and resentment towards me."

7th May 2013: Wolverhampton Wanderer sack Dean Saunders after the club’s relegation to League one making him the 4th manager to manage Wolverhampton in only 15 months.
The Doncaster ex-boss has failed to keep Wolverhampton safe after taking over in January. With five wins, five draws and ten defeats that made the club finish in the 23rd place, 5 points away from the safe zone.

Steve Morgan promises the fans a new manager that will hopefully take the club back to where it belongs at the premier league among England’s top flight clubs.

Wolverhampton hires an unknown Italian manager

*At the press conference unveiling the new manager*

The Wolverhampton board and I, Steve Morgan, are proud to present to you the new Wolverhampton manager, Guiseppe D’Eletto
Reporter: “Mr.D’Eletto, what made you take the job as Wolverhampton manager?

Guiseppe: “Bene, dopo Mr.Morgan mi ha contattato e mi ha detto che il club ha bisogno di un direttore e lui è disposto a fare qualsiasi cosa solo per assicurarsi che il club torna a cui appartiene. Non ho potuto dire di no a una simile offerta generosa.
Well, after Mr.Morgan contacted me and told me that the club needs a manager and he's willing to do anything just to make sure the club goes back to where it belongs. I couldn't have said no to such a generous offer.

Reporter: “Is there anything you would like to say to your predecessor?

Guiseppe:” No, sono sicuro che Mr.Saunders hanno fatto del suo meglio per mantenere il club in campionato. Ha appena stato sfortunato a prendere in consegna il club in questi tempi difficili.
No, I'm sure that Mr.Saunders have done his best to keep the club in the championship. He just was unlucky to take over the club in such hard times.

Reporter:”What should the fans expect from you?

Guiseppe:”I tifosi devono aspettarsi attrarre calcio. Promozione saggio, io li prometto che saremo di nuovo nella massima serie in un tempo massimo di tre stagioni.
The fans should expect attracting football. Promotion wise, I promise them that we’ll be back in the premier league in a time of three seasons maximum.

Reporter:”You don’t speak English, is the language barrier going to be a problem between you and the players?

Guiseppe: “no mai anglich iz vary best
*Chuckles from all over the room*

Steve Morgan:”Thank you ladies and gentlemen, that’ll be it for today”

Certain expectations

Steve Morgan:”Okay, Guiseppe, with all the greetings and welcomes out of the way, I would like to let you know about my expectations.”

D’Eletto:”I’m all ears.

Steve Morgan:”I expect nothing less that title this season, 2nd place is not an option. Understood?!

D’Eletto Silently nods his head.

Steve Morgan:”Money wise, we have a good squad with enough depth in it. But if you want to alter it, I’ll give you a 2.5m budget with 222k wages.

D’Eletto:”Thanks, that would be great.

Steve Morgan:”That would be it for now, you can leave.

A brief introduction to Guiseppe D’Eletto

Guiseppe D’Eletto is a Regen that once played for my Wolverhampton side in FM12’. He led us to 4 Champions league victories in 5 years, 3 FA cup titles and 2 Barclays Premier Leagues.

He is classified as a Wolverhampton legend, the Italian striker’s scoring record was immense. With 137 goals in 163 Premier league games which quite impressive for a player that hasn’t reached 24 yet.

Words can’t describe it, so I’ll just leave you with screenshots.

Hes a beast!!!!
2013-06-09 18:14#110410 patrick1 : Hes a beast!!!!
YEAH!, shame I didn't get to see him reach his peak.
oh that was in fm 12? i didnt read the whole thing lol :P
Good luck Omar! :)
Patrick : yeah, it was.

Glenn: Thanks :D

I thought you would continue the story from FM 12, somehow. Like make D'Ellotto a club legend who used to play for the club back in the 90s or something. :P

Chapter two: New management, new rules.

From July till mid August.

So, I take over the club in L1 and to be honest, the financial situation is terrible. The chairman gave me a 2.5m budget and 222k wage budget. The funny thing is, we’re already paying 300k/w which means that we’re 90k in the red. Interesting, huh?
This meant that there won’t be any signings in this window. Perhaps no signings in the January window also.

This only meant one thing, I had to rely on the current squad which Championship level which means I won’t have any trouble making it back to the Championship.
Staff wise, I replaced Sean Parrish with Doug Livermore in the assistant manager spot.
After having a quick look at the squad, I quickly singled out my key players that will be playing in every game.

Those players are :-
1. Richard Stearman

2. Leigh Griffiths

3. Kevin Doyle

4. Bakary Sako
5. Jamie O’Hara


I’ve decided to go with a 4-2-3-1 as my main formation and a 4-2-4 as a backup formation.

The Capital One Cup draw was kind to us, giving L1’s Carlisle United at home.
Anything less than a win is not acceptable.

Next Update: Mid August till October.

Chapter 3: Unstoppable force
“You take that back! You little runt! ”

From mid August till October.

This is going according to plan, unbeaten in the league, 1st with two games in hand. I couldn’t have wished for a better start.
The fixture congestion seems to be having an effect on my players though, shown in injuries and fatigue.

This could only be fixed by getting new players, which is a little bit out of hand because of the club’s wage budget.
Tactical wise, the players are adapting very nicely to the 4-2-3-1.
With that being said, all is left now is to show you the results of the twelve fixtures played so far.

League table & Stats

Player of the month
Bakary Sako
wow, great start. will be following and hopefully you can take the wolves back to the bright lights of the premier league.
You've obviously got the formula right for your league campaign. I think you can start to experiment a bit with squad rotation in the league now against some of the bottom sides to avoid fatigue. You're 4 points ahead with 2 games in hand.

Anything short of winning the league would be unacceptable for you. Maybe as a bonus, you should consider trying to win some other trophy as well, like the Johnstone's Trophy, since you won't be eligible for that once you're back in the Championship, I think.
Winning the league should be cake-easy! Good luck in the cup competitions though. A good run would give you a nice bit of cash.
Good start and a good read and as a wolves fan i hope to see them back up to the premier league soon
A great read regen, loving it. I have a soft spot for Wolves so I hope you can do well with them.
Maybe you can achieve more with Wolves on this save than you did in FM12! Brilliant start to life in League One!
