As some of you may know I have been doing FM17 on youtube for some time now and it's been quite a journey I must say I loved the journey 'till now and I hope it's gonna continue. Other story is going to continue normally but I'm adding something new to the channel I have been thinking what should it be I came down to two choice Italian Venezia in third league or Netherlands.
I was excited about both choices but in the end decided for the Netherlands challenge because I have not managed in this country for long time now in FM I don't even know if I did which is surprising to me.
Anyway I'm hoping to bring something new to Eredivisie with my new club Go Ahead Eagles they are newly promoted team which has rather low facilities and low budget. We even had some transfer budget at the start of the season which I transfered into more wage budged for potential loan signings and free transfers.
One of the first things I noticed was that I had about same budged in this club that I would get in Venezia which is third Italian division which goes to show top 3 clubs in Netherlands are way off (Ajax, Feyenoord, PSV). I'm hoping to slowly get this club close to these three and contest for the first place in Eredivisie maybe even some European runs.
First season goal is to avoid relegation but I'm hopefull for top ten which is rather longshot after the signings I made which were rather dissapointing due to lack of budget and interest of better players.
In this series format is going to be a bit different about 6 episodes per season. There are going to be 2 episodes per week IF this series gets more popular than my previous one or atleast about the same I might do new episode every 3 days, which is kinda plan already but I prefer to leave myself some leeway. Episodes are going to be about 20 minutes long except for this first one because I had to show around the team a bit and other fuss...
In real life Go Ahead Eagles got relegated so there's no extra pressure of this particular team performing well I guess... Nevertheless I want to overperform on every possible step in my own way. Probably not going to play wingers as is custom in Netherlands I'm basing that on every single team having bunch of wingers except for the team I picked.
Without further ado here is my first video with Go Ahead Eagles with club presentantion, transfers, players (taking look at them), goals for the season, preseason and first match of the season against FC Utrecht
I hope you like it, if you have any suggestions, comments please feel free to let me know!
