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!
Rossoneri | Part 1: A New Beginning
My Beta FM21 save sees me begin the new game in Italy's Serie A with sleeping giants AC Milan. Despite winning 18 Italian titles, the club only has two since 1999. It also has seven European Cup titles to its name, but none since 2007. And it only has one cup win since 2011. So there's plenty of space to restore glory to Milan.
Roth Raivers | Part 18: A European Final!

With that in mind, and given the fact that most the new arrivals were youth prospects, I wasn't expecting much. However, I've somehow managed to build an Atalanta team that is... Continue Reading →
Atalanta Avventura | Part 3: Exceeding Expectations
Atalanta went into 2019 pushing towards the top six after a couple of strong victories over Juventus and Inter Milan.

Transfer business I was slightly concerned about our defensive strength, so I moved... Continue Reading →
Atalanta Avventura | Part 2: European Ventures
