The Posh will battle hard to maintain their place in the second tier of English football, and that’s not something they are predicted to achieve going by the latest edition of Football Manager.

The football management simulation game has been wildly popular since it’s initial release in 1992 and is now played by football fans and professional players alike.

‘FM’ is also used as a player database by football clubs due to their worldwide scouting network of around 1,300 scouts which developers use to ensure full accuracy across the game.

The ‘beta’ version of the game was released last week, giving players a chance to play an early access period while the final aspects of the game are being finalised.

The full version of Football Manager is released on November 9th.

Just for fun, we simulated three seasons into the future to see how Peterborough United could line up for the opening day of the 2024/25 season – and the results were very interesting.

Although they finished 22nd in 2021/22 season and were relegated back to League 1, they built on an eighth place finish in the third tier in the 2022/23 season to go up as champions at the end of the 2023/24 season.

Here is how our simulation had Peterborough United lining up for the opening game of the 2024/25 season:
