Prologue


Hello, lads! Welcome to my very first Football Manager story!

First of all, I would like to apologize for any grammatical mistakes, I confess I’m a bit rusty. Feel free to correct me!
And also apologize for wrongly posting this story on the Football Manager 2017 section, as I do not own it and, instead, am playing the 2016 version. Why, did I do this, you ask? Well, for three reasons, mainly. Number one, due to licensing issues, SEGA and Sports Interactive decided to not sell the latest version on Brazilian lands, which is where I live. Two, I couldn’t possibly afford it anyway, so I’m happy with my original ’16. And three, I probably wouldn’t have alot of feedback, if any, in case I had posted it where I should’ve. Assuming that the moderators feel this doesn’t seem right and the topic should be moved or even removed, be my guest! Without further ado... A quick introduction to my love, Vasco da Gama.

That will be all for now fellas’, I hope you all enjoyed this introductory post. I might continue depending on whether a 2016 story will be looked upon favourably in this section or not. If not, oh well, that is unfortunate. In case the worst happens, I'm saving this post for a future attempt, perhaps using the 2018 version, granted that SEGA and SI revert the current situation. Cheers!
Good luck, I'll be following! Any kind of FM story is welcome here in this section, we only really change sections from FM16 -> FM17 to replicate the 'seasons', as they were. With regards to your bbcodes, you've got a

It is here:

Anyway, good luck, and I am sure you will do well here!
Good luck man, youve made a solid start to this story and like Justice said it doesnt matter if its on FM16! If you can make it work for you, go for it!

Looking forward to where this goes and seeing how you do!
I'm looking forward to this mate, I'm glad you've written a little introduction as many new users tend to just start with a very basic post, but this has caught my eye straight away. Wish you luck!

That’s great to hear! Thanks for the feedback, and also for the revision. It’s fixed! Still getting used to the bbcodes xD

Cheers, mate! I took a quick glance at your Feyenoord story, man it looks awesome, very professional work there! I shall get there one day, I hope!

Hey Scott, thank you, lad! Yeah, I tried my best to include enough interesting and essential information in there while not making it a very long and boring read. It’s my first story so I didn’t know what to expect really, but glad you enjoyed it!

I'm sorry for the late replies, been kinda busy lately due to massive modifications of my routine, which means I will be taking considerably much longer to post new updates. And also deciding which writing path I shall take, whether I should focus on newsletter pieces, specific POV, roleplays or even a mix of all that. Still on it, though!
