    Hello and welcome to my 2nd career mode story thread. You can find my last one HERE. My last thread also started at Newcastle, but we ended up at Wolves as well as managing England after 7 seasons.

    This time around I'll be hoping to do some more bits of writing, as well as trying to improve my graphics. Again we will start at Newcastle United, this time in the Championship. If this turns out anything like my last one though, I'm sure we'll manage a variety of clubs.

    We begin at the end of last season and the uncertainty surrounding the managerial role at the club. Newly appointed Rafael Benítez confirms that he has a relegation break out clause in his contract, luckily, Newcastle are showing signs of recovery. However things soon start to unravel after a 0-0 draw against already relegated Aston Villa.

    Sunderland take full advantage, going on to beat Everton 3-0, condemning Newcastle and Norwich to the Championship. The season ends against Tottenham at St. James Park, with the Newcastle fans hoping to convince Rafael Benítez to stay. Either way, Newcastle will be looking to bounce back into the Premier League at the first attempt.

    Sunderland survive with victory over Everton, as they now sit 4 points above the drop zone with 1 game left to play. The result today was bad news for Norwich and Newcastle, as they will now both be joining Aston Villa in the Championship next season.

    It was a case of too little too late for Newcastle United, who suffer their 2nd relegation in 7 years. The appointment of Rafael Benítez was a positive move, with the Spaniard overseeing a 5 game unbeaten run, but the damage had already been done. Their 0-0 draw with already relegated Aston Villa on Saturday meant that their fate was out of their hands.

    The magpies will now play a dead rubber against Tottenham on Sunday, who are looking to secure a 2nd place finish. The fans will be hoping to convince Rafael Benítez to stay, after the man himself confirmed that he has a break clause in his contract should Newcastle be relegated. Benítez of course began the season as manager of Real Madrid, it seems an unlikely scenario that in the space of a year he'll go from the Bernabéu to the Pirelli Stadium, home of Burton Albion.

    Rafael Benítez is expected to announce his plans soon after the end of the season.

    I reckon you might go a different direction and not have Rafa stay, will be interesting either way

    I thought Rafa would have left after relegation so I wouldn't be surprised if you have a change in manager and a fresh start

    Newcastle ended their dismal season on a high note, beating Spurs 5-1 at St. James Park. In the end, the pressure proved to be too much for Spurs, as they capitulated in spectacular fashion in a match where a draw would have been enough to see them finish 2nd, above bitter rivals Arsenal.

    It was a memorable day for Newcastle fans for many different reasons, not all of them good ones. With relegation confirmed, the fans were surprisingly in good spirits, chanting throughout the match the name of their manager Benítez, hoping to convince the Spaniard to stay on at St. James Park. The performance on the pitch certainly matched the atmosphere with the home side pressuring their opponents straight from the kick-off. Wijnaldum opened the scoring after just 19 minutes, with Mitrovic then doubling United's lead 20 minutes later. Lamela managed to beat Darlow at the near post early on in the second half, and just 7 minutes later Mitrovic was sent off after a bad challenge on Kyle Walker. The comeback was on, or so it seemed.

    The sending off only seemed to further motivate Newcastle United as soon after Wijnaldum scored his 2nd from the penalty spot. With the 2 goal lead restored, Newcastle could sit back and hit Spurs on the break. Late on in the second half, Aarons and Janmaat scored goals 4 and 5 respectively.

    With the Championship now the destination for Newcastle next season, preparations must begin soon. The question of course is who will be leading United next season, will it be Benítez? The man himself remained tight-lipped when interviewed after the match, stating only that he was "open to talk and to see what happens".

    Wijnaldum, only showed up for two home games. Great business selling him for that much.

    I was going to wait for FIFA17 to release to make comments on the new stories, but I guess they've already officially begun. Sucks that Newcastle got relegated, but maybe you can do something about that. ;) Wondering if DeAndre Yedlin will make the new roster, then I might continue to comment on the story. :D (just kidding).

    Honestly, my preferred method is starting with the real squads and disabling the first transfer window. So that seems likely :D

    This seems the way most of us use to do things. It's still the best one honestly.

    Yeah I think the story is much better when the first window is disabled. Adds a bit more realism to the story and it's easier to follow.

    Could never thank Newcastle enough for that 5-1 thrashing of Spurs that took us above them, interested manager choices I think Tim Sherwood would be too inexperienced but something different for sure, not keen on the other choices.

    If you hire Pearson, tell him not to take the club to Thailand in the preseason. :D

    Not a lot of managerial talent floating around to be fair. Maybe we can tempt somebody that's already employed.

    But how else will we know if we've shown great character :(

    What could possibly go wrong ^^
