In the last couple of seasons I've covered off my plans for Football Manager in the coming 12 months. And this season also requires one as my plans will be changing a little.
Unless you've been living in a cave for the last couple of weeks, you'll know that Football Manager 2023 will be out on 8 November. Check out our 23 teams to manage on FM23!
The other day I was casually scrolling through The Guardian's excellent interactive transfer feature and noticed plenty of transfers I didn't know about and could affect our enjoyment of FM23.
Believe it or not, we're only nearing the halfway mark of the Football Manager 2022 lifecycle. That means you still have six months of adventures waiting for you in FM22 so, if you're bored of your current save or looking for a new challenge, then now is the perfect time to kick it off.
Football Manager is an absolute treasure trove of data and imagery that, on the face of it, is a bit of an assault on the senses. But if you're anything like me, then the standard layout of the game can become bland and the blank faces or fake badges and kits are a bit annoying.
I wrote one of these blogs last year so I figured, with Football Manager 22 around the corner, I'd do the same again this year. Mainly because I'm really excited about the challenge I've come up with for this year's game.
Now that we know the full version of Football Manager 2022 will be released on 9 November, it's time for all of us to start casting our minds to the future and where we want to spend the next 12 months of virtual management.
My number one rule on FM21 is to never trust my scouts (unless they tell me a player is really, really bad). For that reason, I use a wide range of tactics for finding the best new players from all around the world on FM21.
We've reached the mid-way point in the Football Manager 2021 cycle, which means there's probably plenty of people keen for a new challenge and looking for a new save to take on for the next six months.
