    Default FM10 Top2Bottom - Game Thread

    If you are enjoying this thread, please rate it: Click here to find out how!




    Welcome to Top2Bottom FM10!

    Top2Bottom is an FM10 sign-up where 33 users have created their own teams from the top to the bottom; they have designed the kits, chosen their stadium and facilities, created their chairman and their manager and specified the funds to be used to determine their initial squad and backroom team. The sign up thread shows just how much work went into the creation of the 33 squads and includes the Top2Bottom Trade Window, a week of mayhem where the creators got to trade players and cash to fine tune their squads ready for the start of the sign-up.

    And now the teams are all created and the squads and staff are all in place. It’s time to start to sign-up. The FM09 Top2Bottom shows much of what will happen here; however, it is my intention to make some changes and produce a better quality of sign-up this time around. On FM09, we had 24 teams created; this time around, we are up to 33 with many of the first version teams returning for the second attempt. We also have a number of new faces involved from CSE veterans to CSE newbies and hopefully, they will all enjoy the Top2Bottom experience.

    Top2Bottom is based in the English leagues although there is a continental flavour to many of our 33 teams. The top 33 Premier League and Championship teams have disappeared completely to make space in the Premier League and Championship for our teams. The teams moving over from the FM09 version start in the same situation as they finished the first version. For example, the FM09 champions Coedpoeth United start as champions of England with a Champions League place whereas Melbourne – losers of the Championship Play Off Final in FM09 – remain a Championship side for the FM10 start. The newcomers fill the spaces in the Premier League – and indeed Europe – left open by FM09 users who have not returned for this version.

    There was a draft to determine 21 players that each team would start with. Each team received – depending on the amount of money they spent – a 4-4-2 based eleven made up of the best 33 players in England in the eleven positions. This occurred after the FM09 users had selected two players to keep from the FM09 version and the newcomers had selected two from the remaining players. Another four players – GK, DF, MF and ST – were drafted from Europe and a further four players – again GK, DF, MF and ST – under the age of 22 were drafted as the hottest prospects from around the world. Each squad started with 21 players ahead of the trade window.

    The trade window meant that a lot of deals took place which reduced or increased the sizes of squads. However, all teams start with at least 19 players – one has 27 – and their created managers will be charged with putting the final touches to the squad in the July and August transfer window at the start of the game. Several players from the 33 teams who disappeared were not drafted and as a result appear as free agents. There could be some interesting free transfers in the early stages of the game.

    Top2Bottom intends to make use of several other websites to make the updates as enjoyable as possible. Top2Bottom has its own channel on YouTube will be used for video hosting; many of these videos will feature the unmistakeable tones of XtraNormal – a text based video creation site; PhotoBucket will allow me to host images and embed them into the updates; and Twitter has a Top2BottomFM10 profile that may be used at times although I’m not sure yet.

    The updates are brought to you by the greatest fictional TV company of all time.



    If you think SKY SPORTS and Jeff Stelling are good, just wait until you see what SPORTS.tv and their two hosts, Hazel Harrison – a girl who will do anything to get the scoops – and Sid Smash – the smooth talking silver fox, bring to you. The SPORTS.tv advert for the 2009/2010 season should whet your appetite.

    I hope you enjoy the sign-up. Good luck to all the competitors!

    That's quite a while off. Got pre-season and the first days of the season before then. It'd be better now.

    If anyone thinks their squad is slightly small, some players are in the reserves. And if there are names you don't know, they would be your youngsters that are coming through from your U18 teams (regens).

    The World Football News

    Candid pre-season interview with Northern Extreme Manager Kodaly McMaster

    Interviewer: At the start of last season you said

    “Some people have great dreams others make their dreams reality! We are really looking forward to this - the challenge, the opportunity- the prospect of going head to head week in week out with the best. ”


    Do you feel you achieved anything last season?

    Kodaly McMaster: Last season was a great experience and we did achieve a great deal – a top 4 finish with the opportunity to get into the group stages of the Champions League and we had some memorable matches not least the Pimus Certantibus at the end of the season.

    Interviewer: Ah yes the Primus Certantibus – the name of the rivalry between Northern Extreme and New Bloc . Notable achievements indeed, and yet you dismantle the squad and, some people argue, put together a weaker squad, what do you say to this?

    K M: We’ve got a great spine to the team – Vidic, Gattuso, and Torres and their back up looks pretty impressive too Agger, Ferguson and The Vezzi. This year we have a better mix of youth and experience – last year the squad was too old. But its early days yet, we might still add to the squad.

    Interviewer: Do you think you have a chance of winning the league?

    K M: It’s going to be tough – tougher than last year but we’ll have a go – you know what we are like. Where I can I’ll stick nose in and get in the faces of the opposition managers if I think it’ll give us an advantage
    We’ve also increased the size of our stadium so if we can fill it every match then it will do the bank balance no harm at all!

    Interviewer: If you don’t win the league then who will?

    K M: Well, looking at the squads I’d have to say Fanghunters - they’ve got A LOT of attacking options (but a dodgy defense – bit like Extreme last season) or Capite Ad Calcem – one awesome midfield (shame about the goalie )

    Interviewer: And the teams that beat you last season?

    KM: Coedpoeth will need to add to a small squad and New Bloc look like a 1 player team

    Interviewer: I cant print that!! Will you finish above New Bloc this season?

    K M: Finish above New Bloc? Finish above New Bloc? Laddie we’ll finish above everybody. Thank you and goodbye!!!


    Stand by for interviews with the stars of Northern Extreme

    NTFK Announce Starting XI


    Nordic Thunder FK manager Vilhjálmur Baldursson has today announced the starting XI at a press conference at Eldinghöllin Stadium.

    Arguably the most important signing of the transfer period was the controversial Italian international - Antonio Cassano, who today was presented with the captain's armband by club chairman Björgólfur Thor Björgólfsson. When asked about Cassano's infamy for clashing with management, team manager Vilhjálmur Baldursson interrupted and replied: "Antonio has assured me of his commitment to the club, both on - and off the field". Cassano continued, saying that he was delighted when he was approached to lead Nordic Thunder, and that he was confident in being able to lead the side to victory in its inaugural season.

    Newly selected team vice-captain Javier Mascherano was also present in welcoming fellow Argentine International Walter Samuel to the club. Mascherano said that he was ecstatic when he heard that the club had signed Walter, and that he was looking forward to helping him settle into life at The Thunder.

    Team manager Vilhjálmur Baldursson was also thrilled to of been able to secure the signature of Mexico superstar Guillermo Ochoa. Baldursson could hardly keep the smile from his face as he spoke of his admiration for Ochoa, saying that "Guillermo proves that a keeper doesn't have to be one of the biggest men on the field and I am delighted to have the opportunity to work closely with him".

    Baldursson was also quizzed about his experiences during the transfer period, laughing then joking that he was "glad that the hard part was out of the way", continuing by saying that "there were many sleepless nights, it was a high stress situation for everyone involved". Baldursson also refused to rule out the possibility of making new signings before the start of the Championship season declaring that: "I won't rule anything out, if the right opportunity comes along I will have no reservations about seizing it".

    Other key signings so far included strong English centre-back Joleon Lescott, talented Peruvian winger Jefferson Farfán, and clinical Dutch striker Ruud van Nistelrooy.

    The Nordic Thunder FK Starting XI was announced as: Ochoa - Lescott, Brown, Samuel, Ferreiera - Mascherano (vc) - Zé Roberto, Cassano (c), Ribéry - Dzeko, van Nistelrooy

    Like the look, of my squad there, although, a few injuries and we could have to rely on the younger players.

    Stronburg's Announce New Signings


    Halo Von Stronburg has announced this afternoon his full signings and why he has signed the players.

    The First signing of the window was that of Sproting Stronburg in where Keeper Chris Kirkland was
    swapper for another keeper Ben Foster from FCLSS. Stronburg also took the second signing of the
    window by trading Sambou Yatabare along with £2.5M for central defender Juan from AA.

    There was also the deal with Fabriconni Coloccini who went away from Sporting Stronburg in order
    for right back Julian Faubert to join the club as the Strongburgians needed a right back. Jermaine
    Jenas also went this time to HAS for a fee in the region of £6M. It was a shame to see Ben
    Foster go even though he was only traded in this transfer window but Stronburg needed another
    central defender to bolster the backline this is why Ben-Haim was brought in from HAS.

    It was also sad to see central defender Ryan Shawcross leave but Halo Von Stronbug had realised
    that he had too many of them but we were short of a left back so Joe Mattock was traded LT. But
    with this acquisition, Halo realised we were short of a decent rightside winger so Saloman Kalou was
    brought in to the club from WW for a fee of £5M.

    Halo Von Stronburg has also admitted that rivals Phoenix FC have made some flops and some
    good signings in the current transfer window. The first laughable transfer was trading Anelka
    for Berbatov, as HVS considers Anelka to be much better than Berbatov and if given the
    chance would have Anelka over Berbatov everytime. I feel sorry for LT in transferring Nani
    and £1M! for the signing of Flamini (not all to do with the fact i wanted nani) but the
    fact that Flamini comes nowhere near Nani in class. There is also the signing of Fulop,
    even though on a Free Transfer it is still funny as Handanovic (Stronburg's 1st string Goal
    Keeper) is better outfield than Fulop. The 2 good pieces of deal that Von Stornburg has
    admitted to is that of Jermaine Defoe and David Wheater. As HVS believes Defoe was a
    steal at £8M and the fact that he bought Wheater at £2.5M then sold at a profit of £9.5M
    to ONS.

    Coedpoeth United season preview


    The season is fast approaching, and today we focus on the league champions, Coedpoeth United. We will be interviewing manager Robert Jones as he builds up to a title defence with a whole new side.

    Interviewer: Hello Robert, how did it feel to lift the first T2B trophy?

    Robert Jones: It was an amazing feeling, we went in to the season expecting European football, but never in my wildest dreams did I think we'd win the title, but we showed great ambition and form, and here we are.

    Int.: Do you think you can repeat last seasons success?

    RJ: Yes I do, obviously the side has undergone major changes but I really like our squad, we've gone for quality over quantity so far but I'm looking at bringing in one or two players to fill the squad a little, but I really rate the side we have, there's one or two positions that could be stronger but we've got time to improve those positions.

    Int.: Your midfield seems very strong and your attack also, but would you say you need to improve your defence?

    RJ: Ermm, not particularly, Ivanovic is a good RB, Luiz and Silva are fantastic CBs, and Leighton Baines is a left back that I rate very highly, he knows how to defend and is great going forward. We could certainly do with more depth in defence though.

    Int.: Who do you think will be your star player this season?

    RJ: Well the obvious choices would be Rooney or Kaka but I think Defour has the potential to be fantastic for us, and Cesar is the best goalkeeper in the world so he will obviously play a big part. But yeah I think Kaka will be huge for us, when he's in form he is unstoppable.

    Int.: Where do you think you'll finish?

    RJ: We need to be looking at the top 4 minimum.

    Int.: And what would you say is your best XI?

    RJ: I'm not completely sure yet but it'll probably be a diamond formation with Cesar, Ivanovic, Luiz, Silva, Baines, Vieira, Defour, Palacios, Kaka, Rooney, Bojan.

    Int: Thank you for your time, good luck this season

    RJ: Thank you.

    Boreham Badgers Season Preview with manager Joe Tompkins

    You only just survived relegation in T2B09, do you think you will face a similar struggle this time round?
    Well looking at some of the other squads they all have very strong lineups whereas we are maybe slightly weaker than the majority. But I think we should have an easier ride this season. I am confident we can finish in a comfortable mid-table position.

    Are you happy with your squad or are you going to make some more signings?
    I think a couple more signings may be needed. We look weakest in defence so we definitely need 1 or 2 there and maybe an extra one in midfield but apart from that I am happy

    Are we going to see any silverware this season for the Badgers?
    I think that might be getting ahead of ourselves a bit, maybe in 3-4 seasons but not this one

    Who is your star player?
    I don't like to single out players but I think the signing of Thierry Henry was a massive one. He will be an integral part of the team for the coming season and hopefully future seasons to come.

    Good luck!

    The Lions Sport:

    BC Lions have confirmed there squad for the forthcoming season, after a tedious draft and then ruthless trading system:
    Goalkeepers: Paul Robinson, Doni, David Ospina
    Defenders: Justin Hoyte, Anthony Danny Fox, John O’Shea, Sotirios Kyrgiakos, Roger Johnson, Michael Dawson, Thiago Heleno
    Midfielders: Kieran Richardson, Sandro, Jack Wilshere, Junior Stanislas, Torsten Frings, Tinga,
    Strikers: Marcus Bent, Keirrison, Roman Pavlyuchenko, Adriano, Yakubu

    Although BC Lions have added to their squad, the media and rival managers alike all seem pessimistic of BC Lions chances. But Lions Chairman Blake had this to say “Okay, so we haven’t got the best team, but we have potential, with young starlets like Keirrison, Sandro and Wilshere, we have a great future. I fully believe we have a great coach in Ben Craig and I believe he could lead us to great things- mainly beating the scum that is Alcester Angels at every chance we get – if we do that I will be happy”

    Ahead of the start of the new season, Lions boss Craig gave the Sport an exclusive insight into the life at the Lions- “This season is exciting, we have been preparing for months, everything at the club has been upgraded- even the dinner trays are a bigger- we are looking for the best start to the season that is possible and we are just aiming to prove our doubters wrong”

    T2B's "Entertainers", The Steel Panthers, are back for the new season with a new-look side - and ready for their first foray into Europe, having secured a spot in the Europa League's inaugural season with a solid 5th place finish last year.

    Having produced such great football last year, the onus must surely be on bringing home a trophy for their loyal supporters. To do this, it looks like they'll need to delve into the transfer market to bring some grit into a talented but slight midfield. Manager Stix Zadinia was so overwhelmed by the activity of the trade period that he didn't end up making any transfers - reportedly a large offer was made for Frenchman Jeremie Toulalan, but a deal could not be reached.

    TIBBOLINI FC- The Mad Hatters

    Tibbolini FC were formed in 2009 by current chairman Mustapha Mbeywi. Having arrived from Nigeria, it was his ambitious intention to form a football club and take them to the top. He hired the services of Mike Bassett as manager, who some may remember from his fabled England days. Together they plan to make Tibbolini FC one of the main forces of english football. It has been Mike Bassett's claim that they shall look to entertain and win in style which has been backed up by having players such as Diego Milito and Samuel Eto'o.
    Tibbolini FC are a club on the up, BEWARE.

    Phoenix FC

    Today the daily Phoenix has the first exclusive interview with both the Chairman and the new manager of Phoenix Football club. Phoenix are a newly made team that have entered this years T2B championship.

    Interviewer: So what made you create a club knowing the perils that face football club chairman these days? and what motivated the descision to appoint a rookie manager in Paul Davids that has many fans questioning the ambition and quality of the team from the very start?

    John Smith: The reason i have gone ahead with the creation of this club is a simple one. I followed the T2B premiership last year and like all armchair fans i knew that i could do better. We have been placed in the champonship this year with a team that i know can push for the title and automatic promotion from day one. As for the appointment of Paul here i can only ask that fans wait until the end of the season before judging as i know that he will bring many qualities to a job i know personnally that he is over qualified for. He is an excellent business man and know about this business from top to bottom.

    Interviewer:
    Paul following on form the chairmans opening words about the playing staff that have been assembled here can you elaborate on them at all?

    Paul Davids: Well we have had the benifit of a very wealthy chairman letting me get on with the playing side of things freely after the initial signings of Klose and Flamini. The squad we have put together is a competitve one but that is not to say that we will not be adding to it again before the start of the season. There are a lot of players out there who could do a decent if not outstanding job for this club. Of coarse at the moment i cannot discuss the future transfers as i do not want to alert our rivals to our transfer policy.

    Interviewer: so to the transfer window that has just shut. Of coarse it will reopen before the start of the season but what motivated the moves that you made?

    Paul: Well we needed to strengthen the squad as we were not handed the most favorable draws in the draft. The players that we moved on we wish the best of luck to but i cannot see anyone arguing with the quality that has been added to this squad. The likes of Berbatov, Nani and defoe cannot be questioned on there credentials and will offer the club something different on the pitch.

    Interviewer: Some people are praising the deals that were done for David wheater and also for Nani and Defoe. Do you think that they were good business for the club?

    Paul Davids: I dont think that i will have many people disagree with me when i say that Nani represent one of the brightest prospects in the game today, already vastly experienced at the highest level he can only get better with age and the deal to bring him here was one of the best pieces of business done during the transfer window. It was also good for the clubs fans to find out that we snatched a player that was highly sort after. As for Defoe that piece of business was a late one that we just scraped in at the last minute but for the price that we paid i cannot complain at all as an international level striker is worth £8 million of anyones money.
    David Wheater joined the c;ub for a small fee of £2.5 million and we had high hopes for the lad here but to finance other deals that the club wanted to make we could not turn down an instant profit for a young player of £9.5 Million. I wouldlike to take this opportunity to wish David the best of luck with his career.

    It has been stated in the press by the chairman of FC Stromberg that he feels that your club have made a huge error in allowing Nicolas Anelka to leave and bringing in Berbatov in his place. What do you have to say to those allogations?

    John Smith: I will take this one if i may. Listen the reason that Anelka was allowed to leave was a simple one. With the Defoe deal in mind we needed something different in our attack other than raw pace and Berbatov is perfect for that. He brings so much to a team and we hope that we can progress with him leading our line. With Simeo and Nani providing the ball to him and Defoe i cannot see many teams in our league being able to deal with that sort of quality.

    Interviewer: SO what do you think of the deals done by your rivals FC Stromberg?

    John Smith: we had to laugh at the pityful talent on display down there. some of the deals they have done are questionable and the rest are just utter rubbish!!
    We dont really see them as rivals as such just a team that we have to stuff every year. We love it, The players will love it but most of all this is all for the fans and it will make there season if we stick five or six past them both home and away on our way to the title and promotion to The premiership. I know for one that a certain Dimitar Berbatov is looking forward to those games and i know that he is going to make them pay for questioning his ability.

    Interviewer: thanks for your time today and we look forward to seeing how your team perform this year and wish you the best of luck for the future.



    You can follow all the latest news on Pheonix including player interviews and inside views of the club that we all love right here.

    Next Week: Interview with Nani and Bebatov don't miss it.

    Oldham Gazette gets first interview with Northstars Chairman


    Today the Oldham Gazette has been granted the first interview with the Chairman of Oldham Northstars Football Club. We sent chief reporter and childhood friend Ashley Pluck to conduct the interview.


    Ashley Pluck: So James you come back to the town where we both grew up to set up a sports empire. Why has it taken so long for you to get the football team set up?


    James Almond: Well Ash I decided that we needed to get a base set up for the football team. So to that end I decided to go with the baseball team first. It was a low cost opportuinty to see if I had the patience that is needed to run a sports club. Once I knew that I did have I passed off the running of the baseball club to my assistant and great friend Denzel Schrader who may help me out with the football team side of things if needed.


    A.P: So how did you get involved with the Top2Bottom league and why did you opt to join in with it?


    J.A: I was reading one of the trade papers as I wanted to get a football team up and running quickly and there it was. An advertisment that was asking for more teams to join the T2B league. I decided to join it as I had followed the original season of the T2B league with great interest and it seemed like a good opportunity to get a league team going. The team was accepted and we have been building a good squad before pre season kicks off.


    A.P: What was behind you decision to appoint an unknown manager in Arnold J Rimmer as the team manager?


    J.A: Well I was looking for a manager for the team but I didn't want to appoint a known manager as there would then be so much pressure from the football fans in this town. As you know very well Oldham has a great footballing history which I want to carry on as much as possible. To that end I had to come up with a name no one knew. I mean look at the reception for Oldham Athletic's manager Dave Penny. He was known quite well throughout lower league football yet now the Latics fans want him out.


    A.P: Yes I know all about that one. Anyway one last question. What can we expect from the team in the championship during your first season in the league?


    J.A: Ah the big question. Well you can expect a fair amount of good looking football and also for the manager to have a healthy transfer budget to bring in any players he thinks are needed. Obviously I have managed to bring in some great signings with players like Iker Casillas, Mauro Camoranesi, Marcelo to name but three players in the team. However if you want to know any more about team affairs I'll point you in the direction of Mr Rimmer and his assistant Carlos Queiroz. I'm just the money man my old friend.


    With that the interview was over. Ashley Pluck reports thath his old friend has lost none of his old self after making the money that has helped him to bankroll this football team and that he's still an Oldham boy through and through. There was also the fact that the Oldham Gazette has been confirmed as the only paper to get the inside scoop on any goings on with the team apart from Sports.tv.

    GCB - Looks great so far, although Essendon FC seems to be missing a little player called Messi, who I payed a lot of money for.

    Any chance of getting him into the squad in time for the pre-season games?

    Other than that fantastic so far (of course)!

    FC Libourne Saint Seurin Chairman Sergio Marbus meets the British press



    Andy from The Sun: Sergio as the chairman of Wayne Bridge's new team, what are your views on the Wayne Bridge/John Terry scandal?


    SM: To be honest, I do not really wish to talk about the individual players, let alone their private lives. I think that what newspapers in this country do to footballers is a disgrace, I think that the treatment of even the English players is bad, and generally do not like it. I want my club and my players to show some kind of class and respect to each other and the other teams in the leagues, so for me I cannot comment and I will not comment on any over private life issues.


    Andy from The Sun: No more questions from us then mate.


    Harry from The Daily Mail: Is Nick Clegg burgling the Conservative party?


    SM: I do not wish to discuss the political situation here in the United Kingdom.


    Harry from The Daily Mail: Have easier exams given your pets cancer?


    SM: I do not have any pets.


    Harry from The Daily Mail: Are asylum seekers giving your house prices swine flu?


    SM: I do not understand what you are saying.


    Terry Tibbs: Ivan Cordoba, talk to me!


    SM: I'm afraid that the press conference is now over, thank you for the wonderful questions.

    Bananas FC

    My starting XI

    Joe hart
    Habib Beye Otamendi Radoslav Kovac Emilio Insua

    Alex Hleb Stankovic Fabregas Robben

    Drogba Santa Cruz


    Subs: Friedrich, Altidore, Piquionner, Kacartoo, Chris Eagles, Mongongu, Hughes, Hildebrand, Pantilimon.

    Rookie Manager: Faustino Perozo
    Well we have a very good balance team, we need only one or two new tranfers, I think that with a lot of effort we can finish in the top 10.

    So, what do you think of Santa Cruz Injury at the begining of the season.

    Of course is important, but we have another players that can play in that position that i can do a good job.

    Do you think Altidore can do the job, he is one of you last Tranfers.

    Well that why i bought Altidore, because i know with his speed and Drogba they can do a good parnership, and when Santa Cruz recover we will see what happen.

    Of course that Fabregas, Drogba and Robben are you key players but who else do you think can do a great season in your team

    Every team have key players but is how the play together, but to answer you question i think Joe Hart can do a great job along with Otamendi in the back.

    Is Bob Maley a good o a bad Owner we dont know about him very much

    Bob is a great person he likes to talk to everyplayer and he is always in the trainin, and he give me a lot of money so i can make the best team...

    Last Question you Rivals CAPITE AD CALCEM are in Europa League, and they have a great Midfield do you think Bananas FC can beat them

    That our game of the season they can be in Champions League and we in the Coca cola Championship and still is another game, we will still try our best to beat our rivals ....

    An Exclusive interview with Alcester Angels Chairman (Derek Trotter) and Manager (Marcus Van Der Cook) by Adrian Chiles on the Sofa of The One Show



    Adrian Chiles - Well Derek, very few people were expecting you to enter a new franchise team in the T2B Premier League. What made you form the Alcester Angels?

    Derek Trotter - To be honest Adrian, i've always wanted to own my own footie club, and the Angels just captured my imagination. It seemed the right thing thing to do. Uncle Albert, God rest his soul, always said that the Angels saved him during the war, i couldn't let him down, could I!

    AC - I suppose you have point Delboy, you don't mind me calling you Delboy do you?

    DT - Adrian, you remind me of my brother Rodney, so it's fine by me.

    AC - Delboy is it true you've recruited a few of your friends to help round the club?

    DT - Yes, that's true Adrian. We've employed Marlene to run the catering, Boycee to oversee the players Cars and Trigger is to be Groundsman! It's a dream team to support the fellas.

    AC - Well that's very good Delboy. Here you are sat next to your relatively inexperienced manager Van Der Cook. Marcus how do you feel Delboy has managed to do in the Transfer Market?

    MVDC - Derek is a legend! He's known for his wheeler dealing and he has done the Angels proud wit his recruitment policy. I'm sure the fans will be delighted to see the players in the pre-season games.

    AC - Who do you consider to be the best deals?

    MVDC - There are so many, to pick one will be hard. Ronaldinho, Modric, Given, Toure, Mutu, Bosingwa, the list could go on and on. They're a fabulous bunch of players and i can't wait to mould them into a team.

    AC - Where do you see the strength of the team?

    MVDC - The Midfield will be the most creative in the League and the rest of the teams will struggle to compete in the middle of the park. And with Clichy and Bosingwa bombing down the wings, who could ask for more? It'll be exciting that's for sure!

    AC - Well obviously we wish you well with your debut season, no doubt people will be intrigued to see how Delboy's Angels take shape on the field.
    This is the first in a series of interviews with the Alcester Angels and next to join me on the sofa will be the Brazilian legend Ronaldinho!
    Now over to Christine who has a very interesting interview with a mobile hairdresser for Racing Pigeons!!

    Brennan United are back for Top2Bottom FM10 in the new disguise of Flackwell Falcons. But the question begs, can Liedson lead them to glory?


    Flackwell Falcons, the rebranded Brennan United, are back bigger and better with a new bunch of players determined to win trophies in the FM10 Version.

    The FM09 version saw the Falcons, then Brennan United, finish 10th in the Premier League after a storming 2nd half of the season, finishing just 6 points short of a European spot after a remarkable upturn in form from January onwards, which has been put down to the fans and the outgoing manager John Puckett, to the arrival of Brazilian striker Liedson on a free transfer in January.

    With Liedson set to lead the Falcons up front in his first whole season with the club, the question begs, can he lead them to glory?

    With Goran Pandev also making the move down south with the change of ownership, and the addition of stars such as David Bently and Paul Scholes to the Falcon’s squad, and a new sponsor in B&Q, the coming season looks set to have a good outcome for the club, despite all of the turmoil that the club has had to endure off the pitch in the close season.

    Code:
    Owner: Sam Carr
    Manager: Michael Venter
    Stadium: The Bird's Nest
    
    GK: Asmir Begovic
    RB: Steve Finnan
    CB: Lucio
    CB: Fabricio Coliccini
    LB: Matty Taylor
    RM: David Bently
    CM: Riccardo Montolivo
    CM: Paul Scholes
    LM: Damien Duff
    ST: Goran Pandev
    ST: Liedson
    
    S1: Lukasz Fabianski
    S2: Scott Dann 
    S3: Radja Nainggolan
    S4: Andy Dawson
    S5: Marcos
    S6: Brett Emerton
    S7: Guilgerme

    Fafeful United News
    Tiny brings back the Fafe


    Article translated from Portuguese using Google Translate

I am delighted to be here with the leaders of this football revolution, Desmond Tiny, Aleksander Radakovic and their newly signed Assistant manager, Graeme Jones. Well Fafeful United have been built from the top down, an idea in the mind of former AD Fafe Manager, Des Tiny saw the forming of a new club when the announcement of a new T2B League. He was delighted when his former strike leader signed up to be the clubs manager and together they have put together a strong side and hope to take the T2B Premiership by storm. So first up I would like to have Des tell us about the club, and the staff he has signed.
    Quote Originally Posted by Des Tiny

We have brought in some superstars, but mainly I built the club looking forward. We have built a brand new stadium for the team, a 66,000 seater in the centre of Fafe to be called Estadio Municipal. At the new ground we have managed to build a great youth academy for the young stars to train in, this academy is state of the art and has the best youth training facilities that money could buy. The gym that I have put in is about average, but hopefully over the years we can build on this and improve the training pitch for our boys as well. To start with on the staff front my first focus was to get in a good Ass Man & a few good coaches, our Physio was not a position I was so worried about, but we managed to sign Graeme Jones the former Scottish Premier League Player to our side, he will be assisting Aleks from the beginning. Our coaching staff saw us signing Steve Foley to coach all our players, Nigel Spink to focus on our Goalkeepers and Richard Hawkins who will hopefully be running the stars into the ground with some fitness training. Then at the last minute we managed to bring in Jon Cooke to cover injuries for the side, hopefully we don't have too many of them.

    Quote Originally Posted by João Silva Oliveira

    Quote Originally Posted by João Silva Oliveira

    Quote Originally Posted by Aleksander Radakovic
    Well João, I think we will run with a rotation policy to begin with. Lets give Rene and Morgan a chance to prove themselves first. One of them is going to become the starter, realistically either of them could lead the line.As for the trade involving Almunia, my thoughts on that, well really we had a very strong goalkeeping core and could afford to give one away, in the end it was a very good trade. We received Benni who will join our Striking Core at the perfect time.
    Quote Originally Posted by João Silva Oliveira

    Quote Originally Posted by Aleksander Radakovic
    Well this really is a strange question. I am not worried about who scores the most goals, but if I had to put it out there I would say Toni will score more often. Though so long as we win either scoring is fine with me.
    Quote Originally Posted by João Silva Oliveira

    Quote Originally Posted by Aleksander Radakovic
    I personally believe the spark will be provided by Valdivia, Jorge is a big man for our club and he is likely to be able to play the ball through beautifully to our front line. In combo with Pienaar and Sidwell the middle looks very solid to me.

I was pretty happy with the striped design of our home jersey, though I have to say our Away Strip is without a doubt the favourite of mine. I can see the club having many great trips in that one. And then just incase there was a clash problem as was suggested by a few other Chairmen we brought out a third jersey, we may not wear it much, but the purple is a great colour and shows the royal lineage of our club. Hopefully now that all the organising is behind us we can get on and get some results, this first season is going to be interesting. None of the teams really know where they are at, so we will look to get some early season upsets and then get up the table early.

    Hmmm it appears I may have done the wrong sponsor on these ones Roberto, I believe its my fault, your sponsor is Carling, can edit these up in about 24 hours if you would like and PM you the new versions.
