Around every October, FM fanatics turn their thoughts to their next FM save, with the new game just around the corner. I had always fancied the idea of turning a minnow into a European superpower; on previous versions I had a very enjoyable save in Germany with Bayer Leverkusen and in the UK, with Oxford United. I gave some thought to managing overseas and settled for a career in lowly Serie C in Italy. I prefer to begin as an unknown manager in the lower leagues, working my way up and building a reputation.
I like my DMs to be brave and aggressive; Coulibaly has certainly collected his fair share of bookings this season but provides excellent cover for Pontisso. Superb work rate and teamwork skills are vital for players in the engine room; as with my other signings he would be an excellent Bosman signing if given the opportunity.
