The year is 2040. Twenty seven years advanced from the present day and the game of football has changed far beyond how we know it now.
Clubs have risen from the depths to become giants, Giants have been felled by minnows, Legends have retired and moved away from the game and new, eager, skillful players wait in the wings to try and prove that they are better than anyone else that has gone before them. (But one thing that hasn't changed is the fact that Football Manager is still the best management sim around!)
This is the story of Marty McFly, a manager who some people say is from the future...some people say he's from the past...but we know better, he's a fictional character in the Back to the Future series that I'm using to run my story with!
Welcome to Future Football!
From the Author
So, welcome to my story. I've read a lot of different stories on here (all awesome, of course) and had a go at running one or two myself. I've never really been successful at keeping any long term story going for a number of reasons, but I think the main problem is that I don't have anything 'fresh' to write about.
With that in mind, I've come up with the premise for a new story. In an idea borrowed heavily from a rival FM forum site, I've simmed my game and advanced it (managerless) to the year 2040. I plan to plonk myself in as Manager of Arsenal and go from there. All the players and staff you knew from the game are pretty much all gone in this save...the teams you thought were dominant have changed and swapped around and all in all...the game just looks different!
I have some ideas for little articles and pieces that I think you'll all find interesting as the game progresses. All in all, I hope to keep the game entertaining for myself and to share some of my journey with you fine people as I go...
I hope you enjoy the story, and feedback and ideas are (as always) welcomed....and I promise that anyone who posts in my story topic will at the very least receive a reply in their own stories!
