Pompey: thanks a lot mate, the money is great tbh, but I'm even more happy at the fact that we've already got our replacement though, that was a key area to strengthen with his departure

Schmidt snubs Los Blancos for Les Parisiens

PSG have announced the capture of Rochdale's Bosnian full-back Justin Schmidt for £41.5m. The defender, capped 26 times by his country, signed for Rochdale a few seasons ago for a mere £240k and has gone to prove his ability in the Premier League.

Rochdale in talks to sign Tottenham starlet

Manuel Pellegrini, Tottenham's manager has confirmed Rochdale are in talks to sign Doug Godfrey. The English forward signed for Tottenham in 2016 from Reading for a fee believed to be around the region of £3m.

"I have a lot of time for Justin [Credible] and whilst it's too early to say anything for certain at the moment, it is very likely we will be discussing things in the future over Doug [Godfrey]."

Tottenham have set an asking price of £21m, which if met by Rochdale, will smash the previous record fee paid by Rochdale of £4.2m for Ezequiel Irusta earlier on this season. Although the transfer window slammed shut last week, Credible still looks intent on getting his man who - if he signs - will join his new club in January at the earliest.

Rochdale handed mediocre group...

Rochdale fans will wake up this morning to find out they will have medium threat from their Champions League group, with Benfica and Schalke being the teams to watch out for.

Unfortunately, this story has now come to an...


It's been an amazing ride, both playing and writing about my Rochdale save. I've really enjoyed the success I had in this story and the best part about it all was the awesome feedback I got from you guys. Unfortunately, I don't have as much time on my hands as I used to for Football Manager and I hope you understand that there are other priorities :/ I'll still carry on with the save when I can, because it's the story-writing that's more time-consuming than FM itself. I might be back, maybe with this story or even with a new one in the foreseeable future, but as for now, thanks a lot guys... :)

Never had an opportunity to say this, but now I will :P

This is probably the greatest story I have ever seen on this site, no joke. It is also the only one that I have read every update from the start to the beginning, and what's more, I loved it. I read this before I joined the site, and still take inspiration from it to this day. No doubt it is one of the best ever on FM Scout, so well done :P

Thanks a lot buddy, it really means quite a bit to me considering this was my first story ever :) I hope I can salvage more time so I can continue writing more stories on this website, because it was something I really enjoyed doing
