I'm an FM veteran who has been more enamoured with FIFA 17 and only just bought this years version of FM. The hardest choice I always face is who to manage and this year I went for the Toffees. There's a few trends I've had in recent FM games when it comes to picking my side:
- a decent first XI with a core of players I can retain but with an obvious need to improve/replace certain players.
- young talent to nurture.
- some funds to go about implementing the changes I want to make.
It could definitely be argued that I've given myself an easy time of things by picking Everton as they easily satisfy all of the above. On FM16 I went West Ham and enjoyed playing as them but don't like going the same team over and over. As the title suggests I can get restless and move elsewhere in FM after a few years. Once I've conquered Europe with one club I like a new project so we start at Everton but who knows where we will end up!
I am quite near to the end of my first season and so will post an update later with screenshots etc.
