The thread will get a few new OP graphics as the story progresses and my planned plot twists occur. I'll move the old ones to here when that happens.


This story will see me managing three members of the City Football Group; Manchester City, Melbourne City and New York City. Expect the clubs I manage to change over time as my planned plot twists occur.

    The Fan Standings Competition will see me bring back my hugely popular Player Sponsorship in it's biggest ever format. As well as through player sponsorship, points can also be earned through classic forum games such as 'Caption Competition' and 'Guess The Player'; there may also be some special one off chances to gain points.

    This time the points you earn will count for much more than a place on the leaderboards; they will help you in the Be A Mancunian competition.

    Full details of the player sponsorship, including the points scoring and list of available players, will be posted soon.

    Previous fan competitions can be seen here:

    The Be A Mancunian competition will be an EA United but you won't be able to create your own player. Instead your ranking in the Fan Standings Competition will decide the order in which you pick your player from a list of players. The points you earn in this competition will also earn you upgrades to your player which you can consider trading for with someone for an earlier pick in the draft during a special transfer window just before it starts.

    For people who are not familiar with the concept of an EA United, it is similar to player sponsorship except that player will represent you and you can make certain decisions for them. The whole team will consists of these players and transfers won't occur so everyone is competing against each other.

    Full details of Be A Mancunian will be announced during the thread as it won't take affect for at least 2 seasons; I will try to give as much notice as possible for when it will occur so you can prepare for it.

    The first points go to Lukas. :smiley:

    This thread is about buying success after all. All will be revealed in my plot twists. Anyway, I haven't said which club is signing him. :)

    Thanks Kyle. :smile: I deliberately left all the Cagliari players so they do well, I don't want to harm their chances.

    You just need to be quicker. :smiley:

    Thanks Matt.

    I'll aim to post the final 3 at 10:30pm so be on then if you want a chance.

    Here are the final three Guess The Player's. I tried to make the harder but they are still easy, I may only do three clues in future.

    Ok, thanks Chow. :) Hopefully I can get the player sponsorship update up before then (Wednesday probably).
    Looking forward to it. :) Always a fan of the stuff in CM Stories, 'Core' needs more love. :)

    There is some great content in this section (and the rest of Core) which sadly isn't noticed by 90% of the forum. It is a shame.

    Beaten again by Lukas, didn't any of them till they were guessed correctly tbh. Doesn't matter though. ;)

    It sounds like I succeeded in making them hard then. :smiley:

    The transfer update will probably be tomorrow or Thursday now.
