I’m on a two-year cycle when it comes to updating my football manager games, so I’ll still be playing FM 2016 for a few more months until 2018 drops. Until then, you can follow me on Twitch.tv as I play through an unemployed start with a 24 year old manager with no coaching licenses and Sunday league experience.
I streamed for about an hour last night while I got the initial job lined up and played a bit of preseason. Our hero manager has been hired by Swedish fourth division side IF Sylvia.
We can only go up from here. I actually turned down positions with Dundela FC & Loughgall FC in the Northern Irish lower leagues because Sylvia seems to have some upside. They’ve got a decent stadium & seemingly a modicum of fan support. The club is deeply in debt and way-over budget, though, so I am going to have to work with what I’ve been left by the previous administration.
Overpaid & garbage. We do have some decent potential youth players who I might just put into action this year.
Luckily, the board isn’t expecting a whole lot from me. We just need to be competitive and avoid relegation & we will be golden. Luckily, we’ve already lost the Swedish Cup before I even arrived. No distractions. Eye on the prize, baby.
