Are you interested in doing all this ?

a) Develop a whole team (more than 11 players at a time, not just 1-2) of wonderkids/ regens from your youth team to world class players
b) Tight control on wages usually 30% below target.
c) Squad all set with world-class players for the next 10 years
d) Continuously improve squad and premier league position and get trophies
e) Untouchable when it comes to finances
f) State of the art facilities.

Here's what I did with QPR in 3.5 years

Currently I am playing football manager 2012. A game i consider to be the best sports sim out there.

There are quite a few fantastic blogs on fm where folks describe tactics, stories etc. but very few if anything on effective squad management and effective finances.

Quote from fm managerial tactics bible TTF ".. A manager is generally successful due to a combination of four things: good tactical management; good man-management; good transfer policy; availability of and good management of funds..."

I have been playing fm 2012 for less than a year but I have been very successful simply by using good squad and finance management which are two of the four key items from the TTF. I am actually quite poor at tactics and training etc. so I just use the tactics from Raikan who i think is a tactical genius and dunc's or raver's training.

I plan to do a story on relegation threatened side and bring it to the top by effective squad management. So which premier relegation threatened side should I manage for this story ?


I am an avid gamer but a casual one too as I spend only 1-2 hours a day on gaming. Its my relaxation time for the day.


I will play a game from any genre as long as it is a good game. I plan to capture my thoughts here as I travel through different games and game worlds.
