Well maybe to clarify that I am not a Oxford United fan but I certainly am enjoying the current FM17 save with the U’s. My passion for Middlesbrough, my hometown club is too strong to ever stray to another football club. I have followed Boro all my life and this fits in nicely with the love of the game ‘Football Manager’. I support the Boro from a far since I moved South but still attend matches when time allows. In terms of FM history. Well i will keep it brief but i have played it since the days of Championship Manager and before the SEGA days. (Yes, i’m a old fella now) but have continued to play and enjoy the whole game whatever the changes have been. I decided to take my playing online with blog posts on my site as well as posting updates via my personal Twitter account
