'If It's Football, It's Vital'

2009-2010 Team Plus Manager

Before lindy introduced his own version of Fantasy Football, Vital Chelsea member seabourch sent me this back in the last days of April.

Unfortunately I forgot all about it until a little birdie reminded me.

So, here is an earlier interpretation of lindy`s idea.

However, for vcontinuity sake, can I ask you to stick to the present format although out of courtesy I do owe it to seabourch for this to be published.

--------------------------------------------

I remember last season we had a challenge where everyone was invited to write an article on how the team might look like if we could pick who managed Chelsea and what our team would look like.

So I've decided to bring that back and invite everyone who is interested to write on who will manage us plus the players in the Chelsea squad for next season.

State where your team will finish in each of the four competitions the team participates in as well. Also state the formation your team will play along interesting facts about it. Give the top scorer of your team too.

There are rules that must be followed and I have these:

1. Anyone can manage Chelsea. Even guys like Hiddink and Mourinho!

2. Your budget will be based on those you sell on top of a 20 million pound starter. Unlimited funds will be provided to sign ONE special player.

3. Have fun!

I'll start first.

Yeah, Modric can play on the left I think. Oh yeah, only 21 players.

I think realistically if we aim for all four we can get a double but to be in 4 four competitions and win the gold and silver is pretty good, forgot Stoch and maybe Kakuta.

Zhirkov will only move if first team footy is guaranteed. Not possible, I'm afraid.
