    A Chairman Story by Tezzz



    A slightly different take on the normal stories we get here. On this one I’ll be telling the story from the chairmans point of view, as I’ll be making his decisions such as sacking/hiring staff and setting budgets. I’ll be using FMRTE to make all my changes on a three month basis. I think this is the easiest and most efficient way to go about it. Feel free to comment with suggestions/ideas!



    Season 1 Expectations
    Manager: Brendan Rodgers (£30,000 p/w)
    League Expectation - 8th position or above
    Europa League - Have a strong showing
    FA Cup - Do not disappoint
    Capital One Cup - Use the youth



    I want stability at Liverpool Football Club. This is the main target over the coming season and my objectives for Brendan have shown this. I have set a lenient league objective so that there won’t be any added pressure to Brendan and the squad. This way the boys can play without pressure hanging over them, and hopefully that brings out the best in the players. I have told Brendan to have a strong showing in the Europa League. This means we want a good run in the competition; however it is not a priority to win. In another attempt to not add any pressure to the team I have stated that I don’t expect us to win the FA cup but I also don’t want to be disappointed. This means that we need to win every game that we should be winning. We should only go out of the FA cup to a stronger team for example the top 6 teams in the premier league. The only thing I’ve mentioned about the Capital One Cup is that I want the youth to play a big part. It’s about bringing in the youth slowly and hopefully have them progress to become very talented players.

    For these objectives and targets to be met I have given Brendan the following budgets;
    Transfer Budget; £20 million ----- Wage Budget; £100,000 per week


    Brendan Rodgers’ first job review will take place on the 1st December 2012!

    There was also a lot of speculation surrounding a £18.75m bid for Glen Johnson from Arsenal. A bid was accepted however Johnson refused the contracts offered and therefore a deal was never really close to being finalized.

  4. I like the idea. Even though I dislike Liverpool Ill follow to see how the chairman story does. Are you just simming the game or do you do anything else?

  5. How did you get so much to spend?

    Thanks for following. I'm setting the budgets using FMRTE and then simming the game as an unemployed manager. I'm going to bring in some realistic changes soon such as maybe extending the stadium capacity as that looks like its going to happen in real life.

  7. Loving it. Why don't you use you're ownership skill to randomely sign players.

    January 2013 Transfer Update

    Transfers In & Out
    Not much movement in the January transfer market as there was not much funds left for Brendan to deal with. However he did manage to get Ryan Taylor from Newcastle for £2.8m on transfer deadline day. Both Daniel Pacheco and Jack Robinson went out on loan to lower division clubs.

    Other News

    Manchester United captured the signature of Leighton Baines from Everton. The transfer fee is reported to be around the figure of £20million. Andre Ayew also signed for Arsenal from Marseille in a deal worth £16million.

    Brilliant idea mate. Maybe not for this story though as it isn't the Liverpool way but when I do a Roman Ambromovich one definitely!

    It was when Hicks and Gillette were in charge, because Benitez certainly didn't fancy Robbie Keane
