FM2017 - Newcastle United - We are a big club!

Recommended Posts

This is my FM 2017 Beta save with the club that I support, Newcastle United! I will run this save right up until the full release of the game on November 4th, so hopefully we can get through a couple of seasons.

There are no restrictions or goals on this playthrough, it’s a case of getting used to the game and its quirks before the main save and main challenge begins!

This first episode looks at pre-season and we play our first few matches, although the form is frustratingly inconsistent! Hopefully we can fix the tactics and get the team firing for the next few games.

If you enjoy the video and want to see the rest of the series, please subscribe to help me out and let me know you’re enjoying it!

The hardest FM yet?
 



Episode two is here and it is just as frustrating as the first! I feel like we are starting to get the hang of the tactic we want to play, but it could cost us our job before we fully figure it out!

I would describe our current form as poor, but not desperate. The board are still on side for now, but some disappointing late goals have cost us and we need to turn some of these draws into wins to get us up the table.

Looking like a turbulent time, i'm yet to even play my first friendly yet! I think you'll come good though, the stats in games suggest you're doing better than the results show.

Yeah, I'm hoping it's just the stats being out of whack and will correct itself. Sorry for not uploading tonight, I went out for a few drinks but there will be some new videos up over the weekend!

Episode 3: Have I just been sacked?
 



Good Lord. Being called into the boardroom to discuss your future is the most stressful thing in this game. I have only ever been sacked on Football Manager once in 10 years and I am one match from being sacked here.

Some absolutely terrible form has really hit us hard and I can't seem to figure out what is going wrong. I think it's a confidence problem but if we don't start winning soon, this FM17 save will not last long!

Episode 4: Finally Finding Form!
 



Quick apology for starters, one of my videos got corrupted so we're missing the 2-0 win over Cardiff. I'm not sure what's gone wrong but hopefully it doesn't happen again!

A much better episode today though as we manage to stop the rot! We finally string together some very important wins and manage to go an entire episode unbeaten. Hopefully this is the start of some real consistent form and we can begin to challenge for those promotion places.

Episode 5: climbing the table!

https://youtube.com/watch?v=le-o0P07igE

We are continuing our excellent recent form following that awful start to the season. We still have some work to do and our position remains precarious, but we are at least moving in the right direction.

I feel like our tactics are starting to take their hold on the team and with some good additions we can be in a strong position to challenge for the automatic promotion spots if we can avoid another really poor patch of form.

Going good, making a second half charge for the title? Howay the lads!! Noting that you use Darlow in goal over Sels, will you switch to Elliot when he returns from injury?

Yeah, I preferred Darlow because he adds to our HG contingent and with rob Elliot as back up we have good cover. I think Carlow might have more potential to develop and hasn't done too badly so i'lol probably stick with him for this save.

Episode 6: Did we leave it too late?
 



In this part we continue our very strong return to form but begin to draw a few too many games than I'd like. We remain unbeaten for a long run of games in the league, but it's looking precarious with us still sitting outside of the play-offs.

My concern is if we hit another poor run of form, so we need to close the gap on the leaders as soon as possible in order to secure our return to the Premier League.

Finally some great form. Took you a bit of time for it all to work, but it is! Mitrovic been poor for me, as has Gayle. Ayoze has been immense, so hoping that I can keep him beyond January.

Yeah, they've both been really poor for me too and I'm regretting the decision to let Ayoze go!

I tried to rid myself of Mitrobitch too, he doesn't score enough for a striker and he has disciplinary issues. But I didn't stay long enough to see it through haha

Episode 7: We're in the play-off places!
 



Sorry for the delay in uploads, I've been away for work and wasn't able to access the internet very much. We manage to extend our unbeaten run even further here, but there's still too many draws.

The main thing is that we end the episode in the play-off positions! We needed a result against Bristol and we managed to get it. Next episode we need to step up and win a few matches in a row.

Episode 8: SACKED?!



Things we looking so rosy with two wins in a row for the first time in ages. Then Reading beat us 3 - 0 and suddenly the board are calling me in for a 'chat' about confidence.

You'll have to watch the video to see if I keep my job. Just in case I am sacked though, any ideas for who you want me to manager in FM17 next?
