Football Manager 2010 Challenge: Macclesfield Town
As I was telling you yesterday, I have started my first Football Manager 2010 challenge with Macclesfield Town, a Coca Cola League 2 team heavily dubbed for relegation: pre-season reports from the media say that the team will finish at 23, while according to the promotion odds, we have 40-1 chances, which mean that “relegation is a real possibility“. Well, that’s why it’s called a challenge, right?
What does this Football Manager 2010 challenge consist in, then? Well, it’s pretty simple: I am starting to manage Macclesfield Town and my goal is to promote to the Barclays Premier League as soon as possible (hopefully around six seasons), stay there and become a main football force in Europe with the goal of winning the Champions League. Pretty cool plans, right? I’m sure it’s going to be a bumpy road and a very difficult team for myself and the Macclesfield players, but I’m surely going to do my best to succeed in style:
I knew very little of Macclesfield before starting to manage it, but after reading a few information about the Silkmen on Wikipedia and checking out the team’s official website, I managed to become quite attached to it and I will surely do my best to succeed. And who knows, maybe I will bring them good luck, as it happened with Burton Albion – the team I managed to get them promoted in my quick FM2008 challenge, and they also gained promotion in real life! Now here’s a few background information about the team which exists from all the way back in 1874!
And here are the promotion odd from Macclesfield aka The Silkmen, proving you that it will indeed be a fun Football Manager 2010 challenge – both for me, as well as you. Hopefully we’ll have a lot of fun and lots to learn!
