Each FM player will have their own views on recruitment, maybe they have no views on recruitment? What? No, I know, that’s crazy, everyone is passionate about signings. Nothing sends football fans into a frenzy like a transfer. Here I’m going to delve into my own transfer policy for FM20. (more…)
After five successful seasons as manager of Wisla Krakow, the time has come to pack up and move onto the next part of my managerial career. It has been a successful period for the club as we won four Ekstraklasa titles, one SuperCup and made the group stage of the Champions League. It’s not all been rosy and I’m going to go through the highs and lows in this post and let you know where I’m off to next. (more…)
Since my last update, I’ve moved forward a couple of seasons. As I begin to shape the club, my focus on transfers, youth policy and style all change. In this post I aim to look at what we’ve achieved in the past two years, on the pitch and off, as well as looking at where I’m aiming to get the club now that we’ve made some progress.

Just played up until the Christmas/New Year break and thought I would do a half season progress report. Despite having a pretty thin squad in the quality department, we’ve performed pretty well. (more…)
The French adventure is over, I’ve had enough of horse meat and frogs legs. I had an offer to stay in France with Monaco, however I’d been with two clubs in France so I thought moving to a new country was for the best to keep this interesting for me. (more…)
With the season over, I thought I’d do a bit of a run down.
When I took over at Marseille, we were 16th. The board set the target of a top half finish which was totally achievable. (more…)
I think that means L’OM Part Two. Apologies if not!
When I left off last time, I’d qualified for the Coup de la Ligue Final against PSG. We were on our way up the table and performing admirably. (more…)
