Northern Lights – 2018

I know, I know…it’s been a long time since I’ve written anything. Sadly the fun Nantes save died the “corruption” death (not the FIFA kind) when I was flying back from Germany in late March.

The Disciple…Moody Hajduk

Darko Rodic’s first season as manager of his hometown club, Hajduk Split has been one of learning for the young manager.

This Kaiserslautern save is my last one on FM17. It seems a bit fitting that it not only is my most enjoyable one, but also my most successful one. I might as well end this version of Football Manager on a high. I had already defined the success of this save after winning the DFB... Continue Reading →
