FM Weekly - FM Story Weekly 21/09/14
Welcome all! After a long hiatus, FM Story Weekly is finally back and today I, Feliks will be bringing you 5 up and coming stories around the forums. Let's waste no time in having a look at the stories.

Ryan Ferguson- The Path To Power by Justice
Wales- The Golden Generation by tomtheone
The Chance to Become World Beaters by No1VillaFan
Derby Della Madonnina by Feliks and Griffo
England FC- The way forward? by Ziechael

#1. Ryan Ferguson- The Path To Power



Ryan Ferguson is back, but this time he's still on his coaching courses. The young Liverpudlian earns his pro coaching license as swiftly gets an interview with Swedish club. However, the overly optimistic chairman turns him down and Ferguson's confidence plummets. However, he finally caught a break when Hungarian second division Nyíregyháza Spartacus FC signed him as their new manager. The Path To Power has begun....

Justice is back with his 3rd Path To Power story, and if it's remotely like the first 2 we are in for a treat as his stories have gone down as 2 of the greatest on this site, ever. His writing is engaging and informative, and the content is already encapturing readers. The presentation works superbly and makes good work of the chunks of text and of course he has used his great graphical skills to make some impressive displays. All in all, this is looking to become another legendary story from Justice and a SOTM nomination is undoubtedly around the corner.

#2. Wales- The Golden Generation

Tom Conwy has taken over in charge of the Welsh national team, and although he couldn't steer to them to a World Cup berth straight away, but the team looks to be on the rise after a 5-1 smashing of Croatia, 2-2 draw with France and a gutsy 1-0 loss to Brazil. The likes of Gareth Bale, Aaron Ramsey and Joe Allen look to be enjoying their time under Conwy and the Welsh national team is looking like it will rise to a new high in world football.

tometheone is a new storywriter on the site, and he must be applauded for his efforts in his first go. A national team story is never easy, but he makes it work with in-depth, detailed updates. His writing and content are good but I feel his presentation is the best thing about this story. It is very clean and slick and makes it very easy to read. Watch this space, we could just see tomtheone taking this story very far indeed.

#3. The Chance To Become World Beaters

FIFA has revealed major corruption charges, and as a result world football will change forever. The players of Europe's 7 biggest leagues have all been released, and now Alessandro Del Piero's Anderlecht is building the new powerhouse in football. With the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar and Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the ranks, surely Anderlecht can become world beaters?

After the ending of his long lasting Manchester United story, No1VillaFan is back with an interesting new concept. The story so far looks to be good, although one may wonder how easy it would be to manage such a great team. His writing and content looks good, and his presentation is easy on the high. Graphic use is good as well and I feel this is a good well-rounded story. Keep up the good work!

#4. England FC- The way forward?



The English FA have made a shock announcement, with the FA looking to insert the national team into the league structure as a club. Leeds United are the club in question, rebranded as England FC and the legend Alan Shearer is appointed manager. Now the foundations are laid, will this move be a good one for English football?

Ziechael has started his newest story, another interesting concept. His writing has brought it to life well, and the content is of course very engaging and interesting. The presentation is good but one of the standouts is his graphical use, with some very tardy newspaper articles making the story look very nice. I think this story, should it last, could be a great story around the site in the future.

#5. Derby Della Madonnina



Milan is at war. One of the greatest and most fierce rivalries of all time comes to the spotlight in this epic tale. Two fallen giants look to regain their status amongst the elite clubs in Europe but a lot stands before them. Ageing squads must be refurnished, fan supports must be regained and European football must return. Who will reach the summit of world football first; the red and black of AC Milan, or the blue and black of Inter Milan? While this remains a mystery thus far, one thing is certain; their will be many great battles in this epic contest.

Feliks & Griffo bring to life the intensity and the sheer magnitude of the Derby della Madonnina (Milan derby) in this network game save. Successful network game stories don't come around much but the two Aussie writers have already laid the blueprint for success. The two writers have perfected the art of news report-style story updates and have combined this with an enthralling storyline which has captured the imagination of readers thus far. While the story is still in it's early days, you can expect some fantastic updates in the future.

So that's your roundup of stories for the week since the last article was out, get around these ones as it's a great crop of promising stories. My thanks to Justice for writing the review to my own story which I couldn't bear to do, and my congratulations to the writers of these great stories. If you work hard enough to create a great story, you may one day be on this article as well. Until next time, I'm Feliks, and remember- stay classy FM Scout.
