IntroductionAs someone who's been addicted to this wonderful game for nearly a decade, I thought why not compile my knowledge and tips and tricks I've learned along the way into a somewhat readable thread (my personal scribbles can be a mess!) and share them with the community. Writing is something I enjoy doing and if a single person finds it useful, it's worth the effort.
With the arrival of Football Manager 2021, there's sure to be plenty of new players who don't know exactly where to begin, or would find some general pointers useful. If I was to run the game for the first time today, I'd be intimidated! I will attempt to keep this as short and concise as possible, without leaving out any key elements of how I personally approach Football Manager.
This is not supposed to be a guide, however. Over the years, many fantastic ones have been written, so if this is not for you, take a look around and you're sure to find something better suited to your experience or playing style.
Should you have any questions or a better way of doing things you want to share with me and the rest of the community, please feel free to comment!
