FM20: Real Betis So Far…

I’ve moved forward a bit with Betis and have just started my third season.

FM20: Player Recruitment

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…)

FM19: The Final Wisla Update?

The last two editions of FM have been based around reviving the fortunes of Auxerre in France. I enjoyed taking a team who had fallen on harder times and bringing them to the very top of the game.
