Mid Season Break Activity!

Good Evening Managers,

I hope you all have been enjoying your mid season breaks.

We briefly discussed an enjoyable task where you were required to research a memorable goal by a player of your choice. Now is the chance to do this by replying to this post.

You could:

  1. Discuss why this goal is memorable.
  2. Explain why you have chosen this player.
  3. Include a video link or picture.

I look forward to your responses… And please, I would appreciate it if you kept the goals against Arsenal to a minimal (Messia)! 🙂


The Chairman


Many managers have been working hard on your FM assignments and have been regularly responding to these on the blog. As a result of this, the board would like to reward you for your good performance by putting on a games session.

Wednesday is the deadline for you to comment with your manager points. Remember, an example of how to do this is below. Any comments after Wednesday will not be made into cards, as staff will not have time to print these in the club shop. DON’T MISS OUT!

See you at our weekly meeting on Friday,

The Chairman

Assignment #4

Dear Managers,

As a reward for all of the hard work you have been doing, the board has agreed to reward you by having a card game session.

We will be playing the classic game of ‘Top Trumps’ where you will actually feature on the cards as managers.

Your task is to comment below giving yourself a 1-10 points score for each of the 6 attributes. You have a MAXIMUM of 40 points to use.

An example of what you could comment (take notice how the pink numbers add to 40):

Remember, you can only use 40 points in total and you must use the above attributes.

Assignment #3

Dear Managers,

I’d like to congratulate you for your responses in the last assignment, the board are very happy with your progress.

For your next assignment, we would like you to answer these questions in preparation for a press conference. Who knows, it could be your team in the same position as Barcelona or PSG one day and we need to make sure that you are confident and professional with your answers.

You can answer as either a Barca or PSG manager. Useful vocabulary is pictured above. We look forward to your comments – and let’s remember correct punctuation for this task!

Assignment #2

Dear Managers,

Your first home game of the season is here. You will face newly promoted Middlesbrough FC. Tickets have already sold out and the fans have high expectations, especially with your new signings in mind.

It is really important that you give your players a professional team talk before the match. It is your job to give them clear instructions and to fire them up.

Vocabulary and phrases you mentioned in our meeting today.

An example of what you could say:

“During the match, we all need to think positively and play to our strengths. Remember, stay calm and get your head up to look for passes.

Communication will be important, important because we need to make sure we know what to do. Moreover, this will start from the back from ………………. (goalkeeper).

Middlesbrough have a great defense but do not have pace. As a result of this, we need to use ………………. for his speed, and ………………. for his goal scoring.

So finally boys, take care of the ball, keep going and don’t slip up, let’s get three points today!”.

Good luck, you have the backing from the owners – let’s get three points on the board!

Yours Sincerely,

The Chairman
