The Comprehensive Guide to my Videos on Football Manager

Even with the book on Football Manager  and all the videos that I have done on Bustthenet the video channel , I have noticed that people sometimes, and a visual aid is needed. So,  I have done a consolidated post where I link chapters from the book to suitable videos. These should help people understand how I approach the game. I hope that it helps you with the game. And if you need more information on how to get the book, you get it free when you support the channel on Patreon. However if you can’t support me on Patreon, don’t fret, I did this list especially for you, so that the content that is taken from the book and covered in videos is now collated into a list. There is so much more from the book that I want to add, but that will take time.

Meanwhile, I hope you find this helpful.
