Last year I struggled with Football Manager for a long time. After starting off with a challenge to myself to only sign people names John for St Johnstone, I drifted away from FM for months, before going back to the John challenge. It took the limits of that second challenge to get me really into the game. I've been excited about FM17, however, for months, and I'm hoping the confines of this game will keep me amused and in the game... So join us, will you, for The Gospel According to St. Pauli. The Premise: Much like John Johnston, this will be a name-based challenge. Jesus o'Nazareth will be the manager of Hamburg St. Pauli and be limited in signing players who's first or sur-names include some iteration of Matthew, Mark, Luke, John or Paul. As these are some of the most common names in Europe, it hould limit me but not enormously badly - and the adddition of managing in a top tier country should provide at least some excitedment. Our manager, Jesus o'Nazareth, has also let the press know that any youth products will also be renamed one of Matthew, Mark, Luk, John or Paul, just to make things a little fun. Further stipulations are that, as opposed to St. Johnstone where I ended up playing the likes of David Wotherspoon and Chris Kane for years, as they had started with the club, I must actively try and sell any original player not named Matthew, Mark, Luke, John or Paul over the first four years. The Setup: Obviously I will be managing St. Pauli, in the 1. Bundesliga, the second division of Germany. Major leagues are loaded, as well as neighbouring countries, Turkey, and Brazil/Argentina/Australia/China/USA all on view-only to try and simulate some big momney moves. Jesus o'Nazareth is an Israeli/Irishman, a National B license holder, a former semi-professional goalkeeper (Jesus saves!). St. Pauli... are alright. Predicted tenth, not a bad squad... Awway we go!
