FM18 Manager Stories
It has been a fairly quiet week in terms of stories on the site this week. However, a number have been created whilst others continue to thrive with updates.

We were able to welcome Jack back into the story writing world this week, as he began his 'Leeds United: That South American Look' story. He has been a familiar face on the site for a number of years and continues to produce a number of great stories; in which include 'Adam Chabukiani: Defying All Odds' and 'Uwe Rosler: Lost In A Foreign Land.' The story is based on Jack's supported team Leeds United, where former Lille manager Marcelo Bielsa has taken the reigns at the club. Jack's writing and use of graphics continue to excite and it'll definitely be one to watch in the coming weeks.

Other welcome additions to the forum include ImThatSybGuy's with 'Power to the people of Sapmi' and ScottT's 'Les Canaris: Foreign Fever.' The former documents Sybe Van der Putten's surprise appointment at Sapmi - where the club will only be signing players within the region. Whereas the latter focuses on a couple's, again, surprise appointment, but instead with Ligue 1 side FC Nantes. We look forward to what these two stories produce.

Where there have been a number of new stories, there has also been the continuation of several. JohnWarrington, JT, Andybooy, tenthreeleader and SeanTheGreatDyche have all contributed to this with their stories, this week.

Whilst I believe all the stories have been impressive for their own reasons; I am particularly impressed by JT's 'Redemption: The Story of the Nearly Men.' This is the writer's first story on the site and he has not disappointed with his lengthy write-ups, as he aims to take 17 different clubs, who lost in European finals, to the trophy. Currently with French side Stade de Reims, JT has impressed and continues to try and assert his side as one of the top sides in France. The story has the potential to succeed, as the updates continue to be made. Keep it up, JT.

Finally, if you are looking for detailed story writing; then look no further than tenthreeleader's story with Salford in the National North. Known for his precise writing ability, the American user has continued to show his abilities in 'Out Of His League.' The save is on FM17, however is still equally as compelling, as Salford look to gain promotion to the National League. The story focuses on Chance Morrison and details both his life off and on the touchline, as seen recently with Chance's relationship with a woman. As reliable as ever, we look forward to more from Chance and his creator.

And there we have it for this week in the Stories section of the site. Please be sure to go and read each and perhaps even look to contribute. There are a number of guides to help you do just this, as well as helpful members and Mods in the 'General Chat.'

European Super League for FM18 (Update)
ciprian111 has updated his popular fantasy database. The full change log can be found in the download article, as the author looks to fine tune this database. In short, it is a fantasy set of leagues which comprises of clubs from all around Europe in one big 'Super League'. Quite an interesting concept, and certainly different to what is normally played. Well done ciprian111!

FC'12 Kit Packs
Patres10 and his team of graphics creators have been very busy over the last week, uploading a number of kit packs for the famous, and unique, FC'12 collection. The above link is for a kit pack for the Swedish Allsvenskan, while the last week has also seen kit packs for a number of Norwegian leagues, as well as for Chile, uploaded. Patres10 & team, well done!

New FM18 Tactics
There have been a number of new FM18 tactics uploaded to here in the last week. They are all very different to one another. ACDavies73's LADam's Leverkusen 4-4-1-1 2DM, Footballfan97's 5-2-1-2 Erik Galore (82% win rate), modr69's Devastating 3-4-3 Counter and tlnnorda's Bag a Goal 4-1-2-3 Possession have all been uploaded and validated. Well done to all, and they have enjoyed quite a high amount of success so far. If anybody would like to upload their tactic for the public to view & download, you can do so here. We just ask you include screenshots of the tactic, its results, and you (at least) briefly describe the tactic.

That's the digest for this week. We had to whittle down what has happened to just ten pieces, so some things did miss out. Perhaps they will make in to next week's edition. Thank you all for reading, I hope you enjoyed it, and thank you to lewie100 & ScottT for helping write this!
