After ending the 2016 season we ended with promotion, in this post we’re doing some analysis to see how well our attacking players performed. At the moment I don’t have radars for defenders but may in future. If you haven’t already, you can see my end of season review here.
Sorry I haven’t posted recently but due to exams and being on holiday I haven’t had much time for FM. But, I’m back now and plan of storming through the seasons with this save with regular short posts. So keep your eyes peeled!
Sitting down and double clicking that Football Manager (FM) icon, what do you plan, what do you hope to achieve… for myself, it is about realism, looking to push the game to the limit, taking it as close as I can to ‘the real world’.
First season is done which you can read here, and I’ve made my preparations, signings which you can see here for the 2016 season and summarised it in this short post. I have started the season by playing the Upper League Cup which finishes before the regular season starts.
As you should know if you’ve read my other three posts (which you should) a main principle I follow is a large recruitment of youth players which can be sold for large profits and can usually go straight into the first team.
The first season of this save is finished and in this post I’ll explain to you and go over how I’ve managed the team and what I’ve done with the club so far. This is also the second time I’ve written this because first time it didn’t save apparently…
Every manager has a philosophy of how they think the beautiful game should be played and how to run a club. Here I’m going to give you mine. And share my plan for HK in the future in the different aspects of the club.
Also, ‘Heimspeki Minn’ in the title is Icelandic for My Philosophy, according to Google translate. If you see a bunch of random letters in my title assume it’s Icelandic for the English title.
If you like you can call the club Handknatteiksfélag Kópavogs, but it’s up to you. I think I’ll refer to it as HK.
So here we are. My first managerial job. My career has starting in Iceland’s 2nd Division with semi-professional HK. If you don’t understand the title of my save, ‘Becoming A Mountain’, it’s reference to Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson – The Mountain from Game of Thrones and World’s Strongest Man competitor from Iceland – we’re taking little HK to be an Icelandic Giant, or ‘Mountain’.
After a couple of months of pestering, I’ve finally been able to persuade my good friend ZeGermanFM to write up something on his Schalke save he’s been posting updates about on Twitter, and I’m delighted to say he’s chosen to give Occasional FM the inside scoop. Without further ado…
