Fleetwood Town – The New Arsenal





The Aim Of The Story


In recent seasons, most notably when they were in the conference, Fleetwood were being dubbed the new arsenal due to having a star play called Vieira, that player was a Brazilian striker named Magno Vieira, who scored 31 goals in 64 games for the club. The clubs stadium is called Highbury Stadium, the same name as Arsenals stadium before they moved into the Emirates, but the Fleetwood Town's ground name comes from the name of the road the stadium is based in, Highbury Avenue. The home kit of Fleetwood Town is usually Red and White, which is also the same colour as The Gunners, so with all these comparisons being made, my aim of the story is to take Fleetwood Town to the Premier League, and then emulate the success of Arsenal, and hopefully, make the club bigger and better then the Premier League giants.
Really good luck mate. I love Fleetwood as a club and I had a really great save with them once. I will follow this a lot :P

Good luck!
The new Arsenal you say? Would be a great achievement if so. I know Magno Vieira from his Cambridge United days back in 2008 or 2009. Hope he leads the front line well for you :)

Yeah hopefully! But i intend to actually sign players in the transfer window that are not panic buys and will definately go for a trophy win. And he left the club after they won promotion :( But i mentioned him as he was one of the Arsenal links. Dm though as there is some quality strikers at the club
Good luck with the story. I'm sure things will go well :)

Graham Alexander Leaves Fleetwood



Former Preston North End player Graham Alexander has stepped down as manager of Fleetwood Town just weeks into taking the job at the club after he reportedly had a bust up with a number of his players in a team bonding session. The Scotsman had only taken over weeks ago after retiring as a player at the end of the 2011-12 season, and stated when he first joined the club that he looks to help the club climb the divisions in the football league. The club went on a team bonding session to the lake district last season as chairman Andy Pilley felt that after all the new arrivals the squad needed time to gel and get to know each other ahead of the clubs pre-season schedule and League Two campaign. The bust up between Graham Alexander and 3 players, including striker Jamille Matt, were apparently cause over Alexander favouring the white players on the team.

Alexander began his career as a youth player at Scunthorpe United where he was there for 3 years before breaking into the first team, where he made 159 appearances and scored 18 goals. In 1995, he moved to Luton for the start of his 4 year spell at the club, where he scored 15 goals in 152 appearances. In 1999, Alexander moved to Preston North End, where he spent 8 years at the club making 354 league appearances scoring 52 goals. In 2007, after Crystal Palace had a £50,0000 bid rejected for him, and eventually moved to Burnley for a fee of £200,000, almost 9 years after they had originally tried to sign him. During his time at Turf Moor, Alexander made 154 appearances scoring 20 goals, where he was part of the squad who won promotion to the Premier League and also getting relegated straight away. In 2011, Alexander returned to Preston where he scored twice in 18 games, while also becoming the clubs caretaker manager during the season too.

Fleetwood fans have said they are said to see him go after his long service in football, but will hope the new manager will be just as good and experienced. A number of names have gone round as of who could get the job, with names such as Phil Brown, promotion winning manager Micky Mellon and Steve Coppell all being linked with the job.
Wow, Fleetwood really suck, if they're meant to be the new Ar$enal. :))
