New Beginnings

It’s been a while since I took my old blog down, SI Sports Centre. The reasons for doing this were made clear at the time, both a lack of energy and no longer having as much free time or getting enjoyment from the game. Nothings really changed in that sense, so you might think this is strange that I’m setting up this blog. I guess it is.

But I wanted to bring back some of the old content I’d posted in the past because it’s still relevant and people keep asking me for links to certain articles.  I won’t be bringing it all back though, this will just be the best (well what I deemed best) work that I did and be a collection of those posts and articles.

It might take a bit of time to do this. I have uploaded a back up and have all the files on the server already but I want to check through them and decide which articles I want to go live and which ones probably aren’t and want deleting because their either shit or no longer relevant.

Moving forward there will be new content added for Football Manager 2018. And as you probably guessed it will all be about Santos. I don’t know at what speed or frequency the articles will be added to the site once the game is finally released. But there should be some kind of steady flow. Content wise you can expect to see the usual type of articles that I used to produce, the only difference is, they’ll be about my Santos side.  

Don’t worry these posts will not be the save game update posts that people do. These would be more aimed at specific issues I encountered or updating you on things like player development and the long-term/short-term impacts.  Or stuff along those lines rather than the typical ‘monthly game updates’ that people do.

I’m not sure why it seems a big issue, especially in the past week, the amount of articles, threads or posts all discussing it they all seem to follow a theme were the people discussing it are confused. So hopefully this article will go a long way to fixing that and teach you the basics of using a pure counter attacking tactic. When thinking about counter attacking football I always think of this quote; Continue reading The Art of Counter Attacking Football
