The busy December period was, well… poor. Now we are in January with 97 million to spend, I have a few players in mind but it may be better to go after them in the summer.

Anyway, on to the matches this month, away games at Chelsea and Tottenham are coming up and they’re the only fixtures I think we’ll have trouble with. Continue reading

Welcome back to the Man Utd challenge we are in October now and this month we have some big games including the Manchester derby in the league as well as Liverpool in the Carabao cup.

It’s that time again, Football Manager has been released and like last year my first save will be with the club I support, Man Utd. Unlike last year, however, I will actually play the save longer than a couple of in game months.  Continue reading
