Hello everyone. I have been lurking on this forum for years, reading stories and the like. I have decided to perhaps join and share some of my tales with you. The one that is closest to my heart can be seen in my profile biography. I can tell it in full if there's interest. When I play FM, I don't have many rules. But I like to follow these guidelines. -I am the Manager, not "Head Coach". The Boss. No "Director of Football" rubbish. -I make all my tactics myself. I don't download. -I play as either myself or a created SAF profile. -If I'm playing as SAF, I always start at United but I will move club if I am bored or whatever- I have moved away from United as SAF only twice. -Trust in the youth, bring youngsters through and sell them for profit. I do buy promising youngsters from other teams, and I like to have a mix of youngsters and experience. -I always like a good bargain in the transfer market. I am not a big spender at all. I rarely make high profile signings unless the board moans at me. Deadwood gets dropped and sold, no matter who it is. -I am a huge "geek" when it comes to tactics. My use of the system utilities its entire depth, and I often find myself making many small tweaks in one game. I keep my tactics fresh every season, but I always keep the core of whatever style has given me success in that save. There's a lot more but I'm rambling. Please, introduce yourselves! I'm looking forward to making friends with you all and I'm happy to have a group of people who won't tire from me going on about my favourite game.
