Heres looking to October

Not played Poker since 15th August so nothing to report win or loss !!
Pretty sure I'll have the odd game or two in October, as the dark nights are now upon us - although definitely not the volume I was playing prior to my break.

Still plodding away with my Teversal challenge on FM2010 - I'm now in my seventh season of management and have overseen 4 promotions in the previous 6 seasons, which means I start season 2015-2016 in the Blue Square North. This is a little tougher and I'm currently only 7th after the first 10 games of the season.

I'll consider the challenge complete when I've taken them to win the Premiership, and then go onto win the European Cup. I think that'll take me up (and probably past) to the release of FM 2011 on November 5th, and I'll see how bug ridden the new version is before I set about a challenge or two on that one.

As background for my challenge I've been to watch the real Teversal play a couple of times, without sounding to big-headed I'm doing a far better job than the real life manager is - although if he could scout 3 Argentinians and a couple of Bulgarians, like I have for my FM side, then their performances would probably improve !!

I used to be hooked on the Football (Championship) Manager games but I simply can't dedicate enough time to them, which I think you need to do if you are going to do it properly.

Congrats on getting a tiny team near the league, I alwyas played as Leeds and struggled in recent times when the developers made us shit!

Hey man,

Would be great if you'd be willing to swap blog links with me. I have added you to mine @

I didn't realise you could play in the non-league on Football Manager! Championship manager 97/98 will always be unbeatable for me though lol.
