Nigel Pearson's Bristol City side are currently 19th in the table with just ten games remaining, with 11 wins, seven draws and a dreaded 18 defeats. Do you think you can do better than him?
The world of Football Manager 2022 is a place where you can live out your dream by taking charge of your childhood club and taking them to glory or you can go on a different path.
The popular Sports Interactive game, which for its stats rely on dedicated researchers across the globe, has acted as a tool for some clubs with scouts using it to identify strengths and weaknesses in a player.
Most recently, a winter update came for all the wannabe managers who want to take to the virtual dug out. In Bristol City’s case, this was adding Timm Klose to the squad, as well as sending out players such as Tyreeq Bakinson to Ipswich Town, as well as updating new contracts like Cameron Pring. The update also at times can boost a players rating depending on how they’ve performed for the first part of the season.
For example, Andreas Weimann has by far been the best performing player given his 24 goal contributions this season, but how much is that taken into account on the game when relating to his age and contract status? Antoine Semenyo is a player that has time on his side and has shown early promise, so if you were to sell him in FM, you’d want a reasonable fee.
