#FM15 #FordFocus : Carragher, you are crazy….

Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome back to #FordFocus the latest in a long-line of saves I have written about on #FM15.  As the god of Strikerless himself, Guido Merry, eloquently put it “man, you have had more saves than my missus has shoes – and she has a lot of shoes!”  Well, I am lucky to have enough to time to play and write about this wonderful game and I am very grateful for that.  Anyway, I am digressing already.  I am picking up the reigns following the first game in October 2014.
