I might actually be a creep, but for some reason I have always thought of this song as "Special", (both in name and nature). In any case, I would like to dedicate my Beta save to someone who, at this very early stage, is at least hinting, that he just possibly, might be...... a little bit special. I've never managed in Austria, and if my FM19 soujourn in France, Brazil and most Nordic Nations tells me anything, it suggest that trying new things can be fun. This bloke has really caught my eye this season in real life and I thought that watching him fill his boots, (he will even be taking free-kicks and pens away from GK's), could be fun while I see what's what in the Beta. The updates are going to be player-based rather than team-based, but to be honest I am making this up as I go so who knows what's going to happen. The only thing I know for absolute certainty, is that his Dad hates Roy Keane and the feeling is mutual.
CHARLTON ATHLETIC edited in the Create a Club Mode, same team just added the red bull logo & edited team name to Red Bull Charlton. Red Bull have today officially taken control of League 1 club Charlton Athletic. The Red Bull Group have been in summer long discussions with the club, Charlton are now the 5th team owned by the Red Bull group. Russell Slade had been set to take charge of the club but the new owners have decided to go in a different direction with ex player Tom Hosking set to be named the clubs new manager shortly. A press conference is expected this week for Hosking The club will now be known as Red Bull Charlton. Red Bull first bought a football club in 2005, taking over SV Salzburg in their home nation and rebranding them Red Bull Salzburg. The company then bought the New York MetroStars the following year and rebranded them the New York Red Bulls, eventually signing Thierry Henry in 2010. In 2007, Red Bull took over German fifth division side SSV Markranstadt and renamed them Red Bull Leipzig, who were promoted to the Bundesliga last season. Tom Hosking has today been named as RB Charlton's new manager after a brief role with the U18 Team. Hosking enjoyed a distinguished career but retired early due to various injury issues he had suffered. He came through Charlton's academy before making his Premier League debut in October 2006 as a 15 year old coming off the bench away at Fulham, he cemented his place in the team after December and played in 28 games during the campaign which saw Charlton relegated. The then 16 year old spent the 1st half of 07/08 season on loan after completing a move to Man Utd, he joined up with Sir Alex Ferguson's team in January and became a key man on the way to the club securing the European Cup & Premier league title, scoring important goals in many games. In 2009 he made his England debut as a 17 year old and scored in the victory in Belarus, making 26 caps and scoring 3 times with his other goals coming against Mexico & Germany. The defender then joined Barcelona for 22 million euros at the start of the 2011 season winning another Champions League trophy in his maiden season, the 2011/12 season is when injuries started to halt appearances and Hosking left Barca at the end of that season stating his body could no longer cope with the physical demands. He re-joined Charlton in January 2013 who were in The Championship at the time, he only managed a hand full of appearances before retiring at the end of that season at only 22 years of age. Hosking spent the next 2 seasons learning various coaching methods working at many clubs including Man Utd, Dortmund, Barelona & Ajax. He rejoined Charlton last season as a youth coach before taking charge of the U18 team until the end of last season before being approached for the 1st team managers job at Charlton under the new regime. Roland Duchâtelet the clubs Chairman who has been kept in place by Red Bull said this morning 'The club is now looking to build for the future under the Red Bull ownership & Tom has a history with the club & a known pedigree in the game that we look forward to seeing as our new manager, his age is irrelevant after you look what he did as a player and since his retirement as a player'
