The Shade





A woeful couple of months for Fabio, exactly what the Shade wanted. He had something big planned for tonight that he hoped would irrefutably tarnish Fabio's reputation. He was ready. He got up, put on his duffel coat and stalked out towards his car. He got into his Ferrari and revved the engine. He was clever though, he didn't want to draw too much attention to himself so he had an older model of Ferrari and he never broke the speed limit. Also it was a spare car he had that he never took to work, he saved it for special occasions like this.

He switched on the lights of the car and pulled out of his drive and out onto the highway. He looked at the cars clock. It said 03:00. He pressed a button and up popped the satnav, "Please enter your destination". He entered it, "Stadio Olimpico, Rome". He set off into the night.

He arrived at his destination 20 minutes later. He was prepared to do this. He quickly put on his balaclava, gun in hand, just in case. He walked up to the doors of the imposing stadium, he swiped his club card and the doors swung open. He stepped inside, safe in the knowledge that nobody was there. He reached into his bag and plucked out a pen drive. He was heading into Fabio's office when he heard a sound. He turned round and saw the clubs cleaning lady who had been working late due to a backlog. The lady screamed as she saw a face.

The Shade panicked and turned and ran. Terrified didn't begin to explain how he was feeling as he charged through the doors, no thought about the plane, he just had to run. He ran into his car and turned the ignition. The car wouldn't start and he could see the police coming round the corner. He jumped out of the car and ran and hid behind a car in the car park.

He watched as the policemen entered the Stadio Olimpico. The lady was still there, huddling in a corner in shock. One of the policemen went over to her and comforted her. She told the police how he had attempted to get into his car but it hadn't worked and that he couldn't have gotten far and was probably still in the car park. The 2 young policemen fanned out and searched from car to car.

The Shade could see one of them approaching the car he was behind. As he turned his back to him he attacked. He punched the policeman at the top of his spine and turned and ran. Then he remembered why he hadn't ran in the first place as he saw the huge fence that surrounded the Olimpico. He began to climb. The other policeman hadn't noticed his comrade was down and if he went quietly enough then maybe he wouldn't notice him. He reached the top and swung over just as the policeman saw him, but it was too late.

He turned and ran off into the black night.
God damn it, who is it?? Great update.. I bet the cleaning lady was American and was called by the name of Emma..

As chairman of the club I demand we bring this Shade figure to justice!

Excellent update, got me intrigued :)

Fabio Signs 3 More





AS Roma have also moved to confirm the signing of a further 3 players. All have agreed terms with Roma and club representatives have told us at Sky that all 3 deals have been finalised.

Christian Eriksen is a Danish playmaker, signed from Ajax for a fee of £30,000,000. The starlet who formerly played in the Dutch league is said to be one of the future gems of the gam,e of football. He is a very creative player and can really pass a ball, whilst being great at dribbling. He really is an all round star and could be pivotal to Roma's Champions League qualification aspirations.

Gary Neville's Verdict - Roma's signing of the summer in my opinion, he is a quality player who is great now and will be even better in the future if he is nurtured correctly. I give him a :

10/10

Lorenzo Insigne is a pacy, dribbling winger who can really cross a ball and score goals. The former Napoli winger was signed for a fee of £14,000,000 and Cannavaro is said to be looking to play him as an inside forward. He is the future of Italian football and should be an Italy regular by the time the 2014 World Cup comes around.

Gary Neville's Verdict - A super winger with pace and the ability to cross. He could be fantastic for Roma and is definitely a future star. I give him an :

8/10

Paco Alcacer is a speedy forward who can score as well and is good with both feet. He was signed from Valencia for a fee of £14,000,000 and for a player with his potential, that is a bargain. Like the former 2 he is a future star who will be incredible but is great right now as well! A super striker who I feel can be very successful as a Roma player.

Gary Neville's Verdict - A striker with the potential to be incredible, I feel Paco will be incredible and will shoot Roma to many titles if he stays that long! The Spanish national team striker position is very much up for grabs and I feel Paco could make the spot his own and be a hero for Spain. I give him a :

9/10

So 3 quality signings for AS Roma Fabio continues to strengthen his already strong squad. I personally feel the title is beyond their reach this year due to the imperious from of Juventus but the 2nd and 3rd places are very much up for grabs in what is one of the closest Serie A seasons in history! I wish the 3 new boys well and I know they will all do great for Roma.
Fantastic signings. Big fees it must be said but if they develop as they should, you could get double that back. You got a great crop of players now

I would like to point out that I, Chairman of the club, was the one that purchased each of these players :P

Nice signings Natty, Eriksen and Insigne are personal favorites, you'll have to prove to me that Alcacar is worth £14,000,000 though!
