  1. FM20 – The Journeyman – #6 “Finding our feet” The start of the new campaign was here and Jimmy was happy with the way the new formation worked during preseason, but the real test would soon arrive. It was important to Jimmy to make sure that the players were on board with the process. He needed a happy and strong dressing room. With new players arriving, he knew that he still had some work to do to bring the players together as a team. Jimmy had promised to improve the dressing room atmosphere when he took over. There has been some improvement, but more was needed. The Yo
  2. FM20 – The Journeyman – #5 “Identify and Adapt” There were still 4 weeks to go until the Young Lions returned for pre-season in Jimmy’s first full season in football management. The young manager still had a number of things to sort out before pre-season got underway. Firstly there was the financial situation and what implications this could have. The club were currently £90k, and counting, in the red. He had decisions to make regarding the players – who would stay and who else could he let go. Lastly, he wanted to develop a club ethos and recruit players with particular attributes
  3. FM20 – The Journeyman – #4 “Downsizing” There were 6 games remaining in the season for the Young Lions and Jimmy was keen to build on the 2 wins his side picked up at the end of last month. They hosted Tampines and despite taking the lead early on they conceded 2 late goals to lose the match. Next up was a big game against Balestier who they were level on points with at the bottom of the league. Anugrah bagged his 6th goal in 8 games and continues his hot streak. The lads looked comfortable throughout the first half but Balestier came out strong in the 2nd half and were more dangerous. Th
  4. FM20 – The Journeyman – #3 “The Lion, the Witch and the Boardroom” Jimmy’s first task was to review the squad and sieve through some 40+ players at his disposal. It is a very young squad and it has since been learned that the team can only have 4 players over the age of 24 and are not allowed to sign any foreigners. He had an idea of the way he wanted to play considering the squad, how good the team was and the position they found themselves in. Jimmy wants to deploy a counter attacking 4-4-1-1, with a solid back 4, hardworking CM’s, industrious wingers and 2 advanced players to li
  5. FM20 – The Journeyman – #2 “Finding Jimmy” Before we start, here’s our Jimmy, sporting that marvellous Winnfield facial hair. Mr Hongthong begins his potential football management career with no coaching badges and a past playing career reaching the dizzy heights of semi-pro football. Well groomed before any interviews Game loaded and we’ve holiday’d for a few months to allow some managers to get the sack – brutal. The job centre starts to pick up pace and we apply for our first job, UiTM of the Malaysian Premier League. Jimmy gets the interview but during it, one of the quest
  6. FM20 – The Journeyman – #1 “The intro” It’s time for me to venture into a journeyman save as I haven’t played one during this latest edition of FM. I have had some enjoyable saves in Ireland, Austria and San Marino this year, but now I am wanting to expand further and sample some of the other leagues, hopefully. I can honestly say that in all of the years that I have played this game I have never once managed an Asian side, ever. Well, that will change now… My journeyman career could be taking me to India, Australia or even Malaysia; figuratively obviously but I wouldn’t say no
