The Nearly Men
Let me tell you something, my friend. Hope is a dangerous thing. Hope can drive a man insane.
This archive is dedicated to Seattle Red’s FM 20 save which chronicles the exploits of Danish/Dutch manager Nicolaj Bur in his attempt to bring redemption for the “Nearly Men” of Europe.
And if you just can’t get enough… Churc out The Ballad of Toothless Bob, a series conceived and co-authored by Seattle Red and Oriole that serves as a narrative companion to the Nearly Men, exploring the world of Nicolaj Bur, away from the pitch. What is Project Arcturus? What lies beyond the twisted redstone door, deep in the bowels of the Santiago Bernabéu?
The Ballad of Toothless Bob, Vol. 2 – The sun comes out but the rain stays put. No rainbows today. Not here.
Dark times in Leeds, as Toothless Bob and his army of children find themselves in over their heads, fleeing to the continent their only hope.
