Things are progressing nicely in the Città di Bergamo with Societá Sportiva Bergamo. After last seasons promotion from Lega Pro (Serie C) we were made one of the favourites for relegation from Serie B this season with the board wanting us to fight bravely against relegation.

I have decided to take a new route on Football Manager by creating a fictional club to manage and create a back story to accompany the save which will be set in Italy which if you already know me is my favourite place for Football so let the story begin.

It’s part four of the Pride Of Galicia and after a successful first season that saw us finish in third place and qualify for the Champions League it was now time to put last season behind us and focus on the season ahead that will be undoubtedly difficult for us to repeat last seasons performance.

Welcome to my latest blog post covering my save with Celta de Vigo. In this blog post I just wanted to cover how I approach Player Development. I am not here to say that this is the best way to do it, it’s just how I approach it and how I have implemented it in Galicia, here is an overview of The Galician Way.

Welcome to the latest and Final Chapter of Florence And The Goal Machine. After ten seasons with La Viola the curtain comes down on one of my all time favourite FM saves and we went out in style by winning the Serie A title for the third time of the duration of the save. The Champions League eluded us yet again but overall I am more than satisfied with what we have achieved over the last 10 years.

Welcome back, its season nine in to the save and things in Florence are starting to change with Abdou Diakhate on his way to China at the end of August after agreeing a deal early in the summer, it feels like the save is coming to an end with the loss of my trusted warrior on the pitch but maybe that gives someone else the chance to step up and replace the Senegalese midfielder.

Welcome to Part Two of my 2025-2026 season review. I left off last time at the end of December with us in 5th position in the league, out of the Champions League at the group stage but in the Europa League and last but not least in the Semi Final of the Coppa Italia. Our form in my opinion was a bit patchy but what was about to happen simply had me stunned and the very reason why the sub title this season is Helter Skelter.
