Thanks Alex :P Yep, I had to remove some, but will update you whenever your player moves or does something big. I also hope to sign everyone at one point though.


The Busby Babes


The team were ready. Pre-season was approaching, and Sir Bobby couldn’t wait to start. He was facing sleepless nights and restless days, but that didn’t matter. The only thing that mattered now was winning, having a solid first season and trying to get in the top half of the table. After the announcement of the squad for the upcoming season, and having meetings with each individual player, Bobby was exhausted. Nevertheless, sleep was not on the horizon tonight. 4am. “This is ridiculous!” he angrily whispered, hoping not to wake Norma up. He picked up yesterday’s paper, and decided to turn to the sport. He never turned to the sport, just stopped after the crossword. He expected his team to be filling the pages, but not this much. FM Scout United took up page after page after page. They covered everything. The staff, the players, even the nicknames. Bobby saw ‘The Pandas’ written in bold at the top of the page, and let out a slight grin.

Eager to see what people had to say about his newly formed club, he read the sports section from page to page, cover to cover. However, Sir Bobby soon came across a page he wish he would never have read, and was never written for many to see and understand the comparison, referencing to the possible link in the future. Anxious, Charlton glazed at the title. “The Busby Babes Regeneration”. When he wanted to build the club, he was determined to not let that happen. He didn’t want a new Busby Babes, he wanted to forget all the awful memories. The plane crash. Every day Bobby would think of the horrors that arose from that plane crash. And he had survived. “Why should I have survived?” he whispered to himself. “Why should I survive when the unbelievable talent of the likes of Duncan Edwards are gone forever?”

Suddenly, all the memories came flooding back. The Busby Babes. The Busby Babes were a group of Manchester United players, born and bred in Manchester. It was thanks to the excellent recruitment and training of chief scout Joe Armstrong, combined with the talent of assistant manager Jimmy Murphy, which helped players progress from the youth team to the senior side. There, they would be under the hands of Matt Busby, one of the greatest managers around, a tactical genius, a footballing wizard. The Busby Babes were young and gifted, but the thought of all that talent together became even more astonishing when you found out all players where made buy the club, no signings or stealing top youth players from other clubs. These players were 100% Mancunian. The term usually refers to the players who won the league championship in 1955–56 and 1956–57, with an average age of 21 and 22 respectively, but stuck with that particular group of players throughout their Manchester United career. But for many, these careers were short, and unexpected ended in Germany.

6th February 1958. That is a date, that every Manchester United around the fan remembers, and hates. It was on that day where eight players careers, and lives, were ended in an instant. These were not the only people to lose their lives, with journalists, staff and crew all being hit by the disaster. 23 fatalities in all. Sure, 21 survived, but that doesn’t matter. It is the deaths that make this such a horrible day, that all true football fans pay their respects, whoever they support. Sir Bobby Charlton survived. He was one of the lucky ones. He didn’t think that though. He was grateful for survival, but couldn’t bare to think Duncan Edwards, one of his closest friends, was gone forever. Sir Bobby decided that the events of the crash would be forgotten, erased from his mind.

The Munich Air Disaster, and the Busby Babes were all in the past. Sir Bobby wanted to be in the present, and the future, wanting people to see the club for what they do on the pitch, not similarities that haunt many. Hearing the screams of innocent players, the blaze of the plane trapping many in it’s pathway to death, the thoughts were finally coming back. So with that, Sir Bobby put down his newspaper, turned off the lamp and lied down, with a single tear rolling down his cheek onto the pillow. A tear for all those who were lost in the air disaster. He wasn’t building a new Busby Babes, he was building Charlton’s Cherubs.
Brilliant update there.
My next update will be Pre-Season Results, so now you need to decide what you want to see within the results? I will screenshot results at the top, but what else would you want to see? Screenshots of each match? The line up? Scorers? I will go for what the majority say, so comment what you want to see within the match updates!
Line up and scorers would be great. Don't mind the screenshots if each match. :)

Alex, you have Steve. Yes, your mothers middle name is Steve. Wait, no Dave!
I wanted Gertrude :(
I think basic match stats/player ratings works... although if you have the mod that allows detailed player stats in game that would be cool to see... no pressure ;)
- STORY WILL BE HALTED FOR THE WEEK WHILE I TAKE A BREAK. Updates will resume when I am back though, I promise! -
