Football Manager 2016 – Unemployment Start – Hired by IF Sylvia

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.

IF Sylvia club history – (TLDR; none)

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.
