Winning is a habit


Welcome to my very first story in FMScout. Firstly, let me introduce myself because I am very new to this forum. I am a teenager from Singapore and am one of the very few FM fan here. I am not experienced as FM2012 is the first FM I played but I first experience managing a club on the Football Manager Handheld 2011. I hope you will enjoy my story because I will be adding a lot of scenario and will try my best to make this as creative as I can.
