And just like that, European competition has rolled around as we hit the 45th instalment of The Football Manager Football Show.
This week, despite seeing a twelve-day international break, we’ve got a lot going on.
- It’s our first FM22 transfer deadline day, which in Turkey happens to be 8 September and also the last day for squad registration before early January
- Shane’s bound for Cyprus as the Europa Conference League group stages get underway
- Ken’s heading back to the King Power stadium as he takes on Leicester having overseen the Foxes for two seasons in FM21
There’s plenty of talk of VAR, tactical tweaks, corner routines and more.
Squad registration rules have taken their toll, shifted dynamics in the dressing room and despite the fact they’re written in black and white, it turns out to be easy to make a costly mistake.
We’ll cruise towards the end of September as the early tone for the season is set. Who comes out on top this month? You’ll have to wait and see…
Separately, as we move into December, a massive thank you to everyone who helped make November 2021 our busiest month for listens and download since we’ve started on this Football Manager journey.
