Who Are Newton Heath FC?Newton Heath FC are a side that were in fact created in the editor. They are a spin off of the old Manchester United, who were named Newton Heath LYR from 1878 to 1902. The idea of the team will become clear later on through the story, and you will get to know more about the side, staff, players and background information.
Why Newton Heath?As many of you know, Manchester United are my favourite side. I have loved them since I have loved football, and recently managed them in Moyes' Boys. However, I became bored of the story, and lost all motivation. The story featured a lot more detail, and a lot more time. Now, I can still use elements of Manchester United (which will become clear soon) while playing almost Lower League Management, meaning updates will be spread out much more to progress quicker over the season.
Targets and GuidelinesTo make the story more interesting, and to link with the idea of using Manchester United within the story, I will try to follow some targets and guidelines throughout the story.
- To gain promotion from League Two
- To gain promotion from League One
- To gain promotion from the Championship
- To win the Barclays Premier League title
- To lift the FA Cup
- To lift the Capital One Cup
- To win a European title
- Every transfer window one former Manchester United player must be signed
- Any staff must have played or coached for Manchester United
- Match day squads must have at least 5 British Players
Who Am I?I will be a Manchester United legend. The Frenchman became known for his skill, infleucne and kung-fu kicking. He began his career with Auxerre, but also played for Marseille, Nimes and Leeds before featuring 143 times for United, in which he scored 64 goals. A former international and beach football manager, who has also been a director of football, I am Eric Cantona.
NOTE: This will be my final FM13 story. I tried international management, but didn't like playing it, so will make this my last story until FM14. I refuse to become one of those 'start a new story every week' members!
