If you’ve played Football Manager, than you know that a lot of thinking can go into choosing a new save. We make a mental note for every save idea we come across. We see them everywhere, in the football matches we watch, in the stories we hear and the history we learn. It can be overwhelming at times – wanting to be able to weave all the stories we can envision. We ultimately know we have to choose just a few ideas to chase.
This year I wanted to spend more time choosing a save than I did for FM20. I desired a save that had meaning and history within football, but also was a club that I connected to personally. This can often be hard when you live in Canada and the clubs are all over the world but in this case I was lucky enough to have travelled with my wife in 2016 to Italy and discovered a city that we still talk about every week.
