A Confusing Horror Show; Weymouth 2036-37

“Nobody is exempt from the trials of life, but everyone can always find something positive in everything even in the worst of times.”

Roy T. Bennett

The 2036 – 2037 season for Weymouth FC certainly did not go as expected. In fact, it went about as bad as it possibly could, which was a bit shocking if I’m being honest. If you’ve read the last blog post you already know that we had finished in the top 6, qualified for Champion’s League and strengthened the squad in preparation for the new season. So what happened?

Welcome to Weymouth FC in 2036

It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.

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.)
