The Story of one man

  1. The Story of one man

    The Journey begins

    hey guys i have struggled to find the right team on Fm13 so i have decided to do a manager's journey...i did a random select and it gave me Swansea so i will start with them and the aim will be there as long as possible..also i will hopefully take international jobs too and try and learn as many languages as possible..i hope you guys will follow me on this journey..

  2. I'll follow................good luck

  3. I woke this morning and put my computor on and looked at thee bbc football my suprise and then fits of laughter i saw an Azerbaijan team had appointed a guy who got the job because he play football manager i said to my self this is not april the 1st...i had my breakfast and put sky sports new and first thing i noticed was MICHAEL LAUDRUP RESIGNS AS MANAGER OF i thought as a laugh i would apply like the bloke did in Azerbaijan....

    3 days later

    My phone rang at 5pm it was Hew Jenkins the chairman at swansea

    Hew: good morning mr barber how are u today
    Me: good morning i am good thank you
    Hew: i will be blunt... i want u to come for a chat about managers job here at the liberty.
    Me:errrm yeah thank you i will b there in the morning

    so i packed an over night in my car and drove from hartlepool to swansea thinking is this real

    after the meeting with hew he came to me and said i like your ideas of passing football and i want to offer you the job,but

    my mind thought noooooo i really wanted it now and i aint gonna get it cos i aint done me badges

    Hew: but we will pay for you to complete your badges so what do you say..

    Me: yes of course where do i sign

    2 days later i was introduced to the heart was in my mouth beacuse i knew what the questions would be..

    Press: who are you
    Me: my names is Chris barber and i am 25 years old
    Press:Hew have you gone mad this guy has no coaching badges and said he only applied for job because he played football manager.
    Hew:i would not have made the appointment unless i believed in him and what he wants to do. i think this press conference is over as all you will do is as these stupid questions..

    so i sat down with Hew and we discussed transfers...

    Hew: you will be given 10m to buy players
    Me: thank you i will spend it wisely..there a 2 players i want Ademielson and Anderson
    Hew:ok we will contact the clubs
