Toulouse Troubles – 10 – Eureka Moment Pt 2

As I mentioned I the previous post, I want to provide some game based information specifically about my tactic that I created as a result of trying out test save in FM17 with West Ham.

I introduced the tactic to the squad in the back-end of the season when we were sitting in 4th place but with some very inconsistent performances which I wanted to sort out and become much more consistent.

Toulouse Troubles – 09 – Eureka Moment!

Magic 105.4 is gently playing in the background, playing songs straight out of the Sunday stress-busters playlist and I find myself staring at a 2D match engine, like many others I’m sure on a Sunday afternoon. I’m patiently waiting for my Toulouse team to beat the opposition team 3-0 and go onto win every competition and I find myself getting really bored.

The Toulouse Tales Episode 08: Season End Update

Hello fellow FM’ers and thank you once again for joining me for what is going to be the my final Toulouse post as I close down the save at the end of what is my 3rd season in charge.

The Toulouse Tales Episode 07: Mid-Season Update

FM17 Is just around the corner and there has been some controversy this year with the sheer lack of released features from SI. To be honest, I don’t really mind too much by the lack of features because every year I buy the new FM and every year I enjoy it more than the previous version.

It does take me a while to understand the match engine and FM16 was no different, I found FM16 the hardest to date but I have still enjoyed the game.

Before I move onto my save update, all I am going to say “In Sports Interactive I trust!”

The Toulouse Tales 06 – End of Season 15/16 Update

Hello and welcome back to my second update of my Toulouse series (Second attempt).

Before I dive head first into the End of Season 15/16 update I want to start by saying how much I have enjoyed this¬†save so far. Not just because of the short-term success that I have experienced, which I’ll come onto shortly, but by making a complete pig’s ear of the first attempt and then having a go at fixing it in the second attempt.
