FM16's Story of the Year

Another year has come and gone, everyone's throwing themselves into FM17's majesty and already the FM17 story forum is overflowing with some quality stories. However, before we can start naming Stories of the Month for FM17, there is the small matter of crowing FM16's Story of the Year

This year has seen some changes in Story of the Month - your previous host Feliks departed, and I took up the reins - admittedly, we've had some sketchy moments, but we've come through it largely unscathed - and you guys have written some incredible stories.

Deciding how to nominate for Story of the Year is always tricky. This year, I opted to give each winner of Story of the Month an automatic nomination, and then sought an additional nomination from each SotM judge, giving us 10 nominated stories in total! These nominations are as follows:

Liverpool Sucks! An Everton Journey - CJ Lippo

Adam Chabukiani: Defying All Odds - Jack

To The Edge And Back - A Pentagon Challenge - lewie100

Il Ritorno: Parma Calcio - mgriffin2012

Toulouse: La Cité Des Violettes - Griffo

Christian Schäfer - Der Professor - Justice

Raising Cain - tenthreeleader

American Calcio - tenthreeleader

The Retirement of Alex Taylor - ninjaskill

The Dream Comes First - Walter

Voting Closes Sunday, 6/11 at 5pm GMT
It has been a thrilling year for stories. My vote has to go to Jack, who has certainly become a top class & consistent writer in recent years. His story has been nothing short of sensational, and I feel he deserves the award. Congratulations to all nominated!

And The Winner Is...

FM16's time is over - FM17 has arrived, but before we start getting TOO excited, its time to crown the story you guys believe was the cream of the crop for the last 12 months.

Started on October 5th, 2015, Jack has woven a magical tale of a young refugee with a love of football. Tragedy and heartbreak have been matched in equal measure with elation and joy, as Adam Chabukiani amassed 90,000 views and a loyal following in his efforts to take Bradford PA to the very top of World Football.

It is a fitting end to a phenomenal run: A solitary Jack Hallahan (a hero of our times) strike taking Bradford to Champions League glory. Jack has already embarked on a new tale, and if it is anything like the story of Adam Chabukiani, we are all in for a treat.

Your Winner: Adam Chabukiani: Defying All Odds By Jack!

Congratulations Jack :)
Congrats Jack! Very well deserved, a real classic!
Congratulations Jack! Was a great story and a thrill to read! More than deserved!
