You know you’re absolutely loving an FM save when you can power through the seasons at a faster rate than your usual.

After last season’s playoff final heartbreak, we only went and won the playoffs this season! That’s right, we’ve been promoted to the top tier of Scottish football (the resurrected SPL on this edited database). Trying something a little bit different for this update to get you up to speed, I’m going to highlight four matches across the season that really stood out for me and contributed to making it a successful one.
