FM 14 and preliminary to my future story in it

Hi everybody,

With yesterday’s official TV advert for Football Manager 2014 I started thinking about my future story. By the way, it’s a nice one if you haven’t seen yet:

Which country to select?

Long-time blog readers know that every year you choose a team for me by means of voting. This time the scheme which I certainly love will remain the same. There’s going to be a poll about the country first and foremost. Only after that I will organize a poll about clubs.

Currently I think it’s time to start in some other country but England. Why? There’re some reasons:

  • I have been managing English clubs since 2007 and FM 2008: All my stories. Yes, there was a short attempt to start with Deportivo in FM 2011 but I suddenly failed and was sacked. So it’s seems it’s time to change things.
  • I recall many of you were expecting me to start in non-English league last year. At least there were many comments and thoughts on that. Though the last year’s country poll was easily won by England…
  • It would be great to try bringing some modest club to the top level and then beat Real Madrid, Barcelona if it’s Spain or Bayern Munich, Dortmund in Germany. A new fresh challenge for me!

So my first intention about Football Manager 2014 is to arrange a poll which can consist of:

  • Spain
  • Germany
  • Italy
  • France

Without England. Do you like it? I feel it’s time to move to some other nation in FM 14. That is why I am seeking for support about this idea and will be happy to see your comments.

Meanwhile FM 2013 Nottm Forest story continues… So stay tuned for the next update.

Excited to blog for you,

Vitaliy Mokosiy
