It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.Ursula K. Le Guin, The Left Hand of Darkness
I was trying to think of a great way to start my first Football Manager blog post, and after a bit of pondering I think this quote is the perfect start. For those who aren’t familiar with my Football Manager obsession, it began in November 2018 and has ignited a passion for the game, and the sport itself. I was always a big fan of football but with the creation of the Canadian Premier League‘s Valour FC and this new game, I was absolutely hooked. Since I first picked up the game I have consumed as much football as I can, in person, on TV and in Football Manager. (I’m actually a season ticket holder for the Valour now.)
Like anyone who gets into Football Manager, I started with a few different saves but really had no idea what I was doing. Thankfully, with the help of Twitter, YouTube and Twitch I was able to connect with a large variety of FM (Football Manager) players who shared a huge variety of content and I began to learn. As soon as I heard about the idea of a lower league save I was enthralled and decided it had to be my next save. I quickly put together a manager named ‘William Codwell’ who was from England (thanks to Hanna for the character development) and dropped him into the world of Football Manager without much experience.
