After nearly two decades of Football Manager 2022, Trebor Mahtal's throwback 4-4-fucking2 style led AFC Wimbledon from League 1 mediocrity to five-time Champions of England and four-time Champions of Europe. The club is now firmly established as the best in the world so, with FM23 fast approaching, it seemed the right time to bring the save to a close.
Wimbledon supporters and neutral fans alike packed the streets of South London to celebrate everyone's second club taking on football's big-spending elite with their old-school approach.
AFC Wimbledon finished 5th in the Premier League in 2031/32, marking an 11-year journey from League One strugglers to one of the best teams in England. So I thought it'd be interesting to take a look back at the club's rise.
Our run of consecutive best finishes in AFC Wimbledon history moved to 11 as we finished the 2030/31 campaign in 8th in the Premier League. But extending that to 12 would be a massive challenge for our young but talented squad.
