 The Red Rebels | Making Mancunians , not Millionares !


FC United of Manchester - England - 6th tier - National League North - Intro

Database | Manager | Club info | Club vision | Facilities | Finances | Squad | Youth Intake 2021





After a long time of doubt and trying in Belgium and Iceland and after the last bugfix I started with FC United of Manchester (the Red Rebels). I hesitated because it is a popular choice this year. And because you have to start quite low in England. Their story is well known, I chose them because they are one of the better options for this challenge out of England and i'm a Manchester United fan , and i'm not a fan of the Glazers.. love the story,love the colours ! . They have a lot of supporters and this should ensure a good balance. I expect a lot of foreign nationalities in the youth intakes, I will try to list that as well.  FC United played four season in National league North between 2015-2019. Just bought the book 'Red Rebels' , published in 2017 . So I'll quickly know more facts such as : 


The author opens by relaying the reasons for the rise of the Red Rebels. He links their roots back to Munich 1958 when one of the disaster’s lesser-known victims, prospective director Willie Santinoff, was replaced by Louis Edwards. Edwards’ son, Martin, was the chairman whose stewardship of United paved the way for their takeover by the Glazers in 2005.

We start with 23 squad players with 6 regens from the first youth intake. This is a youth only save , no transfer in allowed.





Football Club United of Manchester is a semi-professional football club in Moston, Manchester, England, that competes in Northern Premier League Premier Division, the seventh tier of the English football league system, and plays home matches at Broadhurst Park.

Founded in 2005 by Manchester United supporters opposed to American businessman Malcolm Glazer's takeover, F.C. United entered Division Two of the North West Counties Football League, earned three consecutive promotions and were promoted for a fourth time to National League North for the 2015–16 season. In cup competitions, F.C. United reached the second round of the FA Cup in 2010–11 and the fourth round of the FA Trophy in 2014–15. In 2019 they were relegated back to the Northern Premier League.

After ground-sharing between 2005 and 2014 with Bury at Gigg Lane, F.C. United opened their own ground, Broadhurst Park in north-east Manchester, in May 2015. The team was managed by Karl Marginson from its formation in 2005 until October 2017.[2] The current manager is Neil Reynolds, who took over as manager in October 2018 from David Chadwick who acted as temporary manager following Tom Greaves's resignation in August 2018.[3][4] The club's regular kit colours are red shirts, white shorts and black socks. Their badge is based on the Manchester coat of arms and features a ship at sea and three stripes for the three rivers that flow through Manchester.

F.C. United are the largest fan-owned football club in the United Kingdom by number of members[5] and have one of the highest home attendances in English non-league football. The club is democratically run by its members who have equal voting rights and own one share in the club each.


Manchester United , Manchester City and Salford are our biggest rivals.

Griffiths is my key player. Ex Bolton . Woods my best defender, i'm not sure if he'll sign a new contract. Simpson will be my box 2 box player.

Biggest Prospect

McMinimee 21-1 .. funny name , he is the best prospect from the first (holiday) intake.


I'll update after every two or three months, about youth intake and i'm going to post in detail about youth intake nationalities and personalties and keep track of our international capped players and our Academy players that leave the club.

June - July - August 2021 | Season 1


Very satisfied with the preparation and competition start. I expected to survive easily with this squad but we are doing much better than that. 
I was able to extend the main players' contracts by one year + option and already have a good connection with a lot of players. Thanks to a lot of spectators and season tickets our balance is very good.


First Eleven & Tactic



Staff Modifications


I was able to sign staff with positive personalities for my youth teams (and first team) . I'll hope that this will influence my youth intake in a good way.

This is my Hoyd. I sacked my original one and gave Chadwick a second job (combination with coach). Chadwick has a resolute personalty.

September - October 2021 | Season 1


Very strong run and We stay at the top, unfortunately a very strange end of the last match against Altrincham with goals in injury time caused my first loss.



In the FA Cup we were able to continue a few times and in the next round we will play at home against Tranmere (league one) . These matches have already provided extra income but I keep hoping for a top game away.




A great goal from Pemberton to secure a winner at Hereford

FA CUP  1st round

I wanted a replay to play for a big crowd at Tranmere.. this wasn't what i expected. Scoring first, getting a red card after 15 minutes.. and we survided with a penalty save in the 94th minute ! Mike won't be happy ! 





Replay it is !

November 2021 | Season 1


We continue to perform strongly in the competition. I hope we can keep this up and at least aim for playoffs now. It is still a long season.  So far I am lucky to be able to handle everything with my 15 senior players.  I did have to finish this month without my attacking mid Simpson. He was out for about four weeks.

Fa cup after the stunt at home against Tranmere with ten players, we could not repeat our stunt in Tranmere but we did well. This earned me a total of 200k.




Oops !


A new director and new upgrades.. the second in the first season !

Great work @FCUM !!!  :D

you're lucky your board is prepared to invest in the YOUTH facilities , here at Wealdstone it's a bit more difficult although i'm looking forward to the new stand behind the goal hahaha
