God bless FM!
I started Watford with own players plus Sugar Daddy and upped the stadium to 45k capacity.
Bought the players that at 25 are world class and put them straight in. Finished 2nd, 3rd and 4th before a 94 points romp to the title in season 4.
The Pozzos gave me 3 stadium upgrades plus the training and youth set up are top top grade.
Nice 4 2 2 2 formation working well with a target man (Deeney hit 22 in season 1).
Downsides have been signing Jaydon Sancho who immediately wanted a bigger club and downed tools. Missing out on a couple of the other wonder kids who are now £150 million players.
Have to say i love the training part and fm19 seems better at retraining player positions.
I enjoy the own goal in the 94th minute, still attempting to defend down 11 in extra time.
I read it all. Have you been diagnosed with OCD or are you on the Autistic spectrum? Dont get me wrong it is a great idea and it works but sooo much effort and time.....
Will you be doing another update article?
Neither as far as I'm aware, it was an absolute s***load time and effort but at the same time was hugely rewarding (as much as a game of FM can be rewarding!) and made for a good blog so I deem it worth it! I won't be doing another update as I opened the game and stared blankly at all the players that I'd since forgotten about and simply couldn't be bothered going through the teams and refamiliarising myself with each players progress etc, so looks as if I'll have to wait until FM20 to start again. Unless I start a FM17 game as Watford or something.
I enjoyed reading ll about it and I dont blame you for not going back to it. Did you have spreadsheets and other data away from the game to help you keep track?
Only 2 - the first for keeping a list of my scouting assignments and which scout was doing which country (as they'd retire and then I'd have to work out what country I wasn't now scouting to find a replacement!). The second was for working out who would be going to each club at the start of the season as that gets quite confusing!
