nestor on 23 January, 2019

keeping it up

nestor on 19 January, 2019

A lot of time has passed since I released the last blog post. I was playing a lot of FM during the last two month and I managed to play over 6 seasons. Thanks to that I'm now in the 10th season as AZ Alkmaar manager. Actually, there weren't any ground-breaking changes in my save. We kept on winning…

Managing Expectations

nestor on 10 June, 2018

La Magia vuelve

36 of the total 38 games have been played of the 17/18 season. The supporters of the Verdiblancos were living their dream: 2 games before the season was coming to an end, they were lying on a wonderfully 3rd place. A 3rd place that would have seen them qualifying directly to UCL Group Stage.…

Preparing Season 1

nestor on 07 November, 2017

Just after joining Betis Sevilla on a lovely 3th of July 2017, one of my first actions, after the mandatory introduction by the president, was to meet up with my Assistant Manager Eder Sarabia .

Money Making

nestor on 10 December, 2016

In FM16 and FM17 and a tried to reproduce the financial success I had with Barcelona in FM13 (having over 2 billions on the bank).

Adapting to new Roles

nestor on 29 November, 2016

I think every Football Manager out there has tried to retrain a certain player to a additional player role in his footballing career. Reasons can be to make sure newly signed players fit the own tactical formation or you want to add some player roles in order to have some backups when injuries occur…
