About Me

You might be asking yourself "Who's this giving us advice on playing Football Manager?" So here's a little bit about me:

I've been playing Football Manager and as it was previously know Championship Manager since about 1996 and I've always aimed to take lower league teams all the way to the Premier League without any cheating.

In an earlier version of the game I managed to take Rushden & Diamonds from the Conference (as the Blue Square Premier was then known) right up to the Premier League in consecutive seasons. It was a slightly easier task back then as Rushden did have some money, but now they don't and are relatively poor however iIve stuck with them for the past two seasons to challenge myself further.

In FM09 I managed to get Rushden to the premier league after 8 seasons.

In FM10 my Rushden team was promoted to the Coca Cola Championship after 5 seasons and is currently in its 2nd season of the league hoping to push for promotion to the Premier league.

In FM11 I won back to back promotions to the Npower Championship and after 4 Seasons I was promoted to the Premier League

In FM12 as Rushden & Diamonds were now obsolete I took up a new challenge with Luton as they had a decent stadium size & weren't in debt. I managed to win back to back promotions all the way to the Premier League applying all the information from this site, just scraping in via the play-offs! My Luton team finished 6th in their first season in the Premier League and won the League Cup, so I'll be pushing for Champions League football in the second season.

I'll keep you regularly updated on my current team status and achievements, players and news as well as all the tactics and players that helped me to get to where I am now.
