The Versus Series has been really well received by the community, and it’s been great to see challenges being laid down, and grudge matches being played between managers. I’m delighted to welcome John Dwerryhouse to Occasional FM, as he gives us the run down of his Versus Series match against Alexi Duggins. Without further ado…
It wouldn’t have been right to have introduced you to The Versus Series without trying it out for myself first would it?
To start off I thought I would lay down the challenge to Ed from the Deep Lying Podcast. Firstly, if you haven’t listened to DLP yet, get some headphones glued to your ears for a day to catch up on all the episodes you’ve missed. Secondly, if you have been listening, you’ll have heard Ed waxing lyrical about his all-conquering Stoke side. He’s won the Premier League and Champions League with them. Could my domestically-successful-but-not-yet-doing-anything-noteworthy-in-Europe, Morton side upset the odds and come away with a result? Read on to find out!
Over the last couple of months, there’s been a lot of positive chat and positive things happening within the Football Manager Community. #wearethecommunity launched on Twitter and was seen as the first step in putting a real focus on having the ability to find everyone and anyone creating Football Manager content. Some claimed it needed a next step, and that next step came in the form of The Tifo Project. If you haven’t joined up yet, I’d recommend you do so as it truly does enable you to discover bloggers, streamers, YouTubers, and podcasters that you most likely didn’t know existed previously, or easily follow the updates from the ones you did.
While all this has been happening, I’ve been plugging away with my Morton save with the desire in the back of my mind to attempt something with a community focus. Something that can be seen as another positive thing amongst our community, something that others would hopefully like to view or read about, and something that others in the community can even get involved in if they want to.
Without further ado, let me introduce you to ‘The Versus Series’.
