Type of FM articles that get accepted and guides on how to write them


  • [accordion]
    • List Articles
      • Our readers love lists. FM Blog is known for its informative or otherwise list-based features.

        While you won't necessarily be restricted from writing other types of content ( team and player guides, tactics, etc. ), list-based features attract the broadest audiences and earn the most views.

        What to Write in a List article?

        Anything you want! As long as it has something to do with Football Manager.

        Be as creative as possible. Most creative articles get the most views.

        You can write something along the lines of;

        Top 5 Tactics for Lower League teams
        10 Players you Must Sign if You Are Managing _________
        6 Tips to Help You Concede Less From Free-kicks
        Top 8 Bargain Signings for Top Clubs
        5 Reasons You Should Manage/Play With _________

        Possibilities are endless! All you have to do is to turn on your creative side.

        Ask yourself if you were the reader would you read the article.
    • Tactic Posts
      • Article Title - Please try to be as descriptive as possible. Include the name you've given your tactic and which version of FM this tactic (or set of tactics) is for. For example:

        FM19 Roy's 4-2-3-1 World Beater - Great With Top Clubs

        Intro - Please try to provide as much detail as possible. Include important information and if possible, screenshots and detailed descriptions of the Formation, Team Instructions and Player Instructions.

        Don't forget to include information about what types of players you try to use in each position or role. What player attributes others should look for, that work well with the tactic.

        If you use additional settings, such as shouts (touchline instructions) during matches, Opposition Instructions (OI's), or have media and motivational tips that you use with your tactics, don't forget to provide details of those as well.

        Try to provide examples of how you've done with your tactic and what teams you've used them with, what divisions or countries they've worked well in.

        Please mention early in your opening post, if you used the Tactics Creator or "Classic" slider settings to create the tactic. If the latter, don't forget to mention that users might not be able to use some or all of the individual instructions and that they may have to tweak individual instructions to make any desired changes.

        Provide a download link using well-known file hosting site www.mediafire.com or upload your tactic to Steam Workshop so others can subscribe easily to your tactic.

        Here's an example of good written tactic article, FM18 Liverpool Gegenpress Tactic
    • FM Challenge
      • At some point in time in your Football Manager career, you might want to do something different, something new, a brand new adventure to spice things up.

        And that's why we have a Football Manager Challenges.

        If you found a challenge that kept you playing FM to the point that you didn't want to quit because of all the excitement it brought, tell us.

        A great challenge is what we're all looking for to keep us going.

        There are loads of well known Football Manager challenges, like the Pentagon challenge, San Marino challenge, beating the bigger brother, etc.

        But this doesn't mean you can't pitch in your ideas.

        If you found a club that you are enjoying the challenge with - write about it, say what's challenging here. Or maybe you found a challenging league or a challenging style of playing FM where you only play with youth players...

        Possibilities for an entertaining challenge are endless.

        Harder and more unique the challenge, the better.

        Here's a list of challenge articles if you need inspiration.
    • FM Guide
      • Here you can write about something you might have stumbled upon that works wonders for you in FM, or you want to share your thoughts and opinions on how you think the game should be played, or how you approach certain parts of the game like tactics, training, mentoring, etc.

        Whether, you write on how to buy/sell players to get the max out of your transfer budget, or how to setup your game at the very start, all ideas are welcomed.

        Or you can even write on the things on what not to do in a save.

        You can write on just about anything, as long as it adds some value to the reader.

        And remember, there's no such thing as a bad idea.
    • Team Guide (No longer accepted until FM20)
      • Required team guides have all been written!

        To create a good team guide, read the guide below.

        Firstly, you will need to give your post a suitable name.

        A name should include the version of the game the post is for, and the name of the team you are making a club post for. This makes it easy for people to see which post they are going into, and people will be able to find it in a search. This makes it more likely that people will see your post so they may read it and be persuaded to play as the team. Some people also like to add a small message to the title of the post. Normally this is something that relates to the club's recent history, such as the events of the previous season. Try to keep this suitable.

        Now for the actual post.

        It is always nice to be welcomed when you arrive somewhere, and this is the same in team guides. I would recommend a simple message, along the lines of 'Welcome to the __________ guide for Football Manager 20__'. That is a short message, yet it makes the person looking in the post feel that they are in a friendly post.

        I feel, to become attached to a club, you need to know about it's traditions and it's history. Because of this I would now put something about their history. To find out this, you can use the 'History' section in Football Manager, go onto the clubs official website or look on a different website that can give you some good information, such as Wikipedia.

        If the history part of the post is very long, people could become bored of reading through it, and this may make them leave the post without reading on. I suggest putting something in here about how they were formed and when they were formed, as well as famous managers and players over the years. When this is done, a more in-depth of the last season they played in real life could follow. This enables the player to see what they need to live up to, and again helps the player to become more attached to the club.

        As everything to do with the club in real life is now done, you can now add some information about the club in Football Manager.

        You could do this in two ways. Firstly, you could post a screenshot of the clubs information page. Your second option is to type the clubs information out, simply listing the points that are given. Personally I like the second option, as it seems like more effort has been put in. In addition to the information in that screenshot, I would add the transfer budget and wage budget for the first season.

        When you have finished the Club Information section, you will need to add in arguably the most important part of the post - the squad.

        Like the Club Information, you could either type this out ( in two different ways ) or post a screenshot.

        To help out people who haven't played as the team before, a squad analysis would be very helpful. I would do four different analysis', one for goalkeepers, one for defenders, one for midfielders and one for strikers.

        In each of these, a review of the best player in the position, the rest of the players in the position and the youth players for this position would probably be the most helpful way of doing a review of the squad. So the reader of the post can get to know the players, it could be a nice addition to add a picture of the star player in the squad.

        You could also write a small piece about the star player, explaining where his best position is and how he should be played to best effect.

        As the second part of the guide, you could recommend a formation, with just the players in the squad at the start considered. This will help people who have never played as the club, as they will be able to get a good start with the formation when creating a tactic.

        Again to support those who haven't played as the team, you could suggest players who you would sell, giving a reason why you would sell them and give a recommendation on how much you think the club could fetch for the player.

        To finish off the team guide, give some suggestions of players to buy. This could be by giving names and prices for the players, or by linking the reader to posts that could help the reader.

        To finish off the post, you should wish the reader good luck if they wish to play as the team you are making a post for, again to make the post seem friendly.
