#FM13 – FM Guide 2nd Edition will soon be available

The second edition of the FM Guide will soon be available. It features additions to content that have been posted on the forums. These include a pretty good post by Zam on match preparation, Cleon’s 90minutes of what he does, a tactical post by the late great SFraser.

I do plan on releasing that later next week, with me having no internet connection at home for the timebeing, I am having to find time during during lunch to do this. Once its ready, a new post on the forums will appear with links to downloading it from my dropbox account.
