FM17 | Reading FC | part XXIII | Trophies, Trophies Everywhere!

Hello everyone, welcome back to the virtual world of Reading FC. If you read the previous parts of my Football Manager 2017 save with this English club you know I won the Champions League for the fifth time in a row in the 11th season. 

I also wrote about the development of players from the original squad as some of them reached their thirties.

FM17 | Reading FC | part XXII | Stick with the team II.

The 11th season of my FM17 save with Reading is over and I decided to make another update of players who are in the club from the beginning.

I wrote “Stick with the team” at the end of the January this year and this part was after the seventh season with Reading.
