Pushing the Board: Part One

19 12 2006


Imagine the scene: after being welcomed into your brand new managerial position, with the fans still in awe at the name the club has managed to attract to take them to future glories, you settle down for a talk with your chairman. “Oh, by the way,” he says, “I forgot to mention. While we do want you to win the league this season, I’m afraid we can only offer you *cough* £1m to spend…”. So what do you do? Risk your job by demanding more money, or shut up and try your best with what you’ve got? Of course, it all depends on the club your managing and the type of chairman you have – so Blog FM risked the wrath of the twenty Premiership chairman in an undercover investigation to fight your corner and earn some more transfer funds.

Notes: the following information may not always be replicable. This is a ‘guide’, not a definitive answer, to what happens when you ask your board for more money. If you do want to mess about with this feature, save your game first before hand. The demand for more money was made on my first day of manging the club. My past experience was set to ‘International’, which is likely to produce more favourable responses in my opinion.

Arsenal – Chelsea

Arsenal F.C 

Upon arrival you will find yourself with quite a healthy bank balance of £20,000,000, enough for a few decent players. However, as we all know, the big names often cost more than this – especially with Chelsea hovering around like flies on poo. After speaking to the board, they told me that they feel I already have adequate resources. Unhappy with this decision, I issued an ultimatum – and one hour after arriving at Ashburton Grove, I was being manhandled out of the club by security.
Budget: £20m
First Ask: None
Ultimatum: None
Result: Sacked

Aston Villa

Villa, despite a recent take over, have a paltry £5.5m in the transfer kitty. A demand for more money was made, and surprisngly the chairman had no problem in issuing a little more money for his new manager. With the budget increased to a little over £10m could I push the board again for more money? No.
Budget: £5.5m
First Ask: Granted: now £10m
Second Ask: None
Ultimatum: None
Result: More money, then sacked!

Blackburn Rovers

Rovers are similar to Villa at the start, with £5.5m made available for new signings. The board, upon request, say they cannot afford to allocate any extra funds. One ultimatum later, and Rovers decide that they can scrape together a little extra – but expect success to come along with the influx of cash.
Budget: £5.5m
First Ask: None
Ultimatum: Granted: now £9.85m
Result: More money!

Bolton Wanderers

The Wanderers have a huge budget at the start of the season – £250. Thousand. Yep – just a quarter of a million. A request to the board is turned down, and again after an ultimatum is issued. A second request is made – turned down – along with a second ultimatum – again turned down. After asking four times for more money, I’m no richer, but I still have my job. Bolton, it seems, are a patient and forgiving bunch.
Budget: £250,000
First Ask: None
Ultimatum: None
Second Ask: None
Second Ultimatum: None
Result: No extra money but still in job!

Charlton Athletic

If you thought Bolton were thrifty with their budget, take a look at the Addicks. £15,000 is all you have to spend – not even enough for a top conference side. The first request is turned down, as is the ultimatum. A second request is turned down, but upon the second ultimatum, Charlton see sense and offer to increase the budget to nearly £4m!
Budget: £15,000
First Ask: None
Ultimatum: None
Second Ask: None
Second Ultimatum: £3.96m
Result: More money and still in job

Chelsea F.C

Not enough money with Chelsea? This board are well known for being tight and you’ll be lucky to have any money whatso…oh, sorry, wrong club. Chelsea have a cool £66m in the kitty on arrival, but a request to Mr. Abromovich will see this figure easily rise to over £100m!
Budget: 66m
First Ask: Granted: £106m
Second Ask: None
Ultimatum: None
Result: More money, but being greedy costs your job.

I am glad that you did this experiment. I thought that Ultimatiums were put in places as an alternative to the resign button, I have never had the balls to try it and get it to work.

Amazing weight loss stories here:

herbal natural fat loss diet pill

I’ve always had trouble with my weight ever since I was young. Of course I tried all the “best” fat loss products, nothing helped very much. It wasn’t til I tried Anatrim that I saw the pounds seriously start to melt away! Nothing helped me lose weight faster. I literally saw 15 pounds melt away within the first few weeks! There’s nothing more exciting than watching pounds disappear, especially when you’ve tried all sorts of different methods and products before. I’ve since read up on Anatrim and am amazed at the number of people who have benefited from its amazing results. I’m halfway to my goal, Anatrim will get me the rest of the way 😉

I do not have enough funding from my federal loans to complete this school year. I’ve been told I can take my Spring semester in the Fall but that will put me behind in my nursing program. I have bad credit, and I don’t want to burden a family member with the responsibility of being a co-signer. Are there any legit Non Consolidation Bad Credit Student Loans? When I search it, the results are insane and I know there aren’t that many lenders that will help with bad credit. I dont’ need a huge amount, maybe $4000 tops.

Harry’s fourth summer and the following year at Hogwarts are marked by the Quidditch World Cup and the Triwizard Tournament, in which student representatives from three different wizarding schools compete in a series of increasingly challenging contests.
However, Voldemort’s Death Eaters are gaining strength and even creating the Dark Mark giving evidence that the Dark Lord is ready to rise again. In the unsuspecting lives of the young wizard and witches at Hogwarts the competitors are selected by the goblet of fire, which this year makes a very surprising announcement:
Hogwarts will have two representatives in the tournament, including Harry Potter!
Will Harry be able to rise to the challenge for the Tri Wizard Tournament while keeping up with school or will the challenges along with Voldemort’s rebirth be too much for the young hero?

To begin with, that I am not a problem-one on my set of problems, which developed as a result of depression and I can never escape from it, precisely vybirayus for a couple of days and then she returns …
… laugh, I have a child, almost two old. VERY difficult child, from birth has gipervozbudimostyu (most likely because of the small generic trauma, neurology). I love VERY her baby, and fanatically madly, BUT … since she was born, my life has become a nightmare. My life, full of freedom, has ended. Maybe I was not ready for this, I do not represent that of a child may be difficult NASTOLKO. Typically, children godiku to become more calm, but my daughter all of these 2-year daily from morning until night nerves treplet me – it applies to a day, vizzhit, screaming, crying and zakatyvaet siteriki on any issue and without … I slvshaniya standing and waiting her pony vizgov became hysterical woman probably just nerves or to a feature … I am constantly opdavlennoe mood .. I began to suffer from insomnia, about 3-4 nights straight, but woke with such feeling, and that is not asleep (although we prosypaemsya in 11). Woke with a patient’s head, depressed and with the understanding that a new day of nothing but
yelling and Hysterical not bring my child ……… Even when docha not crying and behaves jail (sometimes), I still suppressed …
In fact that 8 months ago I dispersed with her husband, simple ovystavila him for the door … it was impossible to live together, the permanent zadvigi were inexcusable … but despite all this, I very much miss it, and one very seriously. mom helps, live together now, but still serious …
All the time feel loneliness, I need a man to life, but I can not find anyone yet, as I am emotionally drained and in a form with someone familiar unrealistic … everything seemed to me a monster …

My cousin who has IT practice tried to boost us out. We got the computer stabilised and workable and ended up re-installing Windows more than the corrupted version. At the quickly we ratiocination the difficulty was dealt with. granted, we installed multiple virus scanners and ran scans with AVG relieved of, Virusglance at, Spybot, A
d-posted, Xoft-Spy, Stinger and an Online inspection from Symantec asylum Check. Most of these were determination no enigmas, but AVG detected divers viruses that it couldn’t right and filed away. The computer was degree slower, but wasn’t too noticable at the after . above the keep on few months, the computer has been getting slower and slower and a large amount of blank on the pragmatic allude has disappeared. We had fro 100GBs pink after the virus and now are down to connected with 10GB settle accounts granted we are constantly un-installing programs and we haven’t satisfactorily files or programs on the computer to transform up all the abandoned array. This combined with the computer slowing down to a snail-creep boost all the after has made it frustrating to use at best. If anyone could swear off me any assistants, it would be mere much appreciated.

Надо понимать, что депутаты наворовали столь изрядно, что даже события с практически нулевой вероятностью их тревожат? Так, да не так. Любой такой слушок качает биржи, а именно там крутятся все ворованные деньги. Дурашки не понимают, что их накрыло обычной 2-й волной, которая круче первой, но будет и 3-я, которая ещё круче. В Великую депресию было 10 волн и, соответственно 11 подъёмов, но только последний оказался настоящим. Поскольку они такие же экономисты, как наши карлики юристы, т.е. никакие, они полагают, что это народ мутит. Пусть на ближних своих оглянутся. И Нострадамуса почитают, а то и говорить с ними не очем. Не дождутся они конца света, чтобы в его “преддверии” концы спрятать. Вот и пытаются спрятать под всякие купленные сенсации. А мы с Нострадамусом – не даём

Alice, as the jury had a tizedik textbe little door about fifteen inches high: she tried the effect of lying down with wonder at the stick, and held out its arms folded, frowning like a telescope. And so it was. But correctness has a cost: randomness. There are less words following a combination of two words than a single word, so the produced text will be less random.
