Author's Note

Welcome all and thanks for dropping by to take a look at my story! I have been wanting to start on a story of my own after being an avid reader of others but I knew I would give up after a day or so. With that having been said, now that I have finished school I am able to put more time into it and hopefully I can run this story up until Football Manager 14. Thanks once again and please drop a comment with any suggestions for my story.


Lineker links up with Newcastle

After much media speculation, Sky Sports News can break the incoming news that former Barcelona and Tottenham striker Gary Lineker has been appointed Newcastle manager on a provisional one year contract.

Speculation arose when, on one nights Match Of The Day, fellow presenter and ex-England teammate Alan Shearer took offense when Lineker 'congratulated' him on what he described as "running your beloved Newcastle to a league where they do not belong". Shearer responded by stating, "It is not as easy as you think! Yes we sit here on a Saturday night critising top quality managers for little, otherwise unnoticable mistakes - but when you are stood on the touchline, your life may as well be on the line. You couldn't stand five minutes!"

Since then, and ever since Joe Kinnear was appointed as Newcastle's 'Director of Football', seemingly forcing current manager Alan Pardew out of his job at Newcastle, it has looked increasing likely that Lineker would take over at Newcastle - and that is exactly the news we can break today.

Other Stuff

I will be using the LFCMarshall's Summer Update and I am going to put Joe Kinnear as my Director of Football. I feel this would add another layer of depth to my story and hope you won't mind :)

Rules

Any Signings Joe Kinnear Makes Must Be Accepted

Should be interesting... here is a goal for you:

ESPN holds first Lineker interview

http://static.guim.co.uk/sys-images/Observer/Pix/pictures/2012/6/27/1340792927372/gary-lineker-008.jpg
Interviewer: "Congratulations on getting the job, what are your aspirations for Newcastle United?"
Lineker: "Well, there is only ever one goal, winning the Champions League."
Interviewer: "Wow, you sure are confident - but realistically where do you want to end up."
Lineker: "Look, if you don't share my confidence, then leave, if I say I want to end up lifting that trophy - then thats what Ill do!"
*The interview is interrupted as a certain Joe Kinnear enters the room*
Kinnear: "Sorry Gary, there has been an update on the Yohan Kebab situation."
Lineker: "I've told you before, it's Cabaye. Now come with me to my office and we will talk further. before the media gets a sniff."
*Interview suspended as Lineker rushes out of the room*

What could be wrong with Cabaye?

Manager Gary Lineker abandoned his interview with us as something was up with midfielder Yohan Cabaye. But what could be up? Cabaye is subject to severe transfer speculation and with the current transfer situation at Newcastle - with Kinnear in full control - could Cabaye be about to leave the club for something fresh. This could be a hugh blow for Newcastle's season.
I think the problem is that someone's taken a bite :))

I'm not trying to be offending anyone here but I think Nathaniel is high. The story's just started and he's already tipping it for SotM :))

Great start to the story, always interesting to see a Gary Lineker one. Good luck with Newcastle, they were Prem winners in around the 2015/16 season in my save. Hopefully by then in your save you would have won the Champions League ;)
