I’ve been playing football management sims since the late ’90s, starting out on console games and graduating to PC sims in 2006 with the Championship Manager series. As the game was declining at a rapid rate, I switched to Football Manager for 2010. I’ve never looked back since.
I play FM excessively, and because of that I’ve found much of what works and what doesn’t, especially with man management and finances. My specialist area is in taking teams from the bottom divisions up through the leagues, especially in England, though I’ve done it in Europe over the years too, and the same processes apply around much of the world.
I have often been asked how I do it, from the promotions to player development and all in-between, which led to me writing my How-To series of guides. I also make the odd tactic.
