Football Manager 2024 has been released live on Steam through early access and fans of the popular game are already sinking their teeth into the latest edition.
The series is now over 30-year old and an impressive worldwide database of clubs, players and staff gives gamers the opportunity to take charge of their beloved clubs and attempt to guide them to unprecedented successes. Just for fun, we simulated three years into the future with the new game to see how clubs across the EFL and the rest of the world had fared.
Here is how the Portsmouth starting XI looked in our simulation at the close of the 2026 summer transfer window:
1. GK - Harry Lewis
Signed for £2.2m from Bradford City in the summer of 2024 after the club win promotion to the Championship and plays every league match of the next two campaigns
2. RB - Anthony Ralston
Snapped up in January 2025 for £225k after being transfer listed by Celtic and the Scotland international manages 15 league appearances in the second half of the season with two assists
3. LB - Connor Ogilvie
An ever-present in the Pompey defence throughout our sim and one of the club’s best performers in the promotion winning 23/24 campaign
4. CB - Regan Poole
Club captain and a stalwart at the back with over 100 appearances for the club across our three simulated seasons
