What’s Coming Up In August? | VivaLaVidaFM | Football Manager 2017

VivaLaVidaFM is nearly 1 year old! So to celebrate the occasion I’ve decided to bring back a couple of old series to run alongside my current VivaTorquay save. In addition to this, I will be starting a new series that will run weekly throughout the year.

As I am currently off work (I work in education and benefit from the school holidays), I have much more time to both play and write about Football Manager. Therefore I have decided to upload five posts per week for the duration of August.

The purpose of this article is to give an outline of what you can expect to see in each series and when you are likely to see them.

My current FM17 story sees Spanish manager Federico Hurtado join Conference South side Torquay United. The aim of this save is to build up the club and eventually reach the Premier League.

  • Wednesday 2nd August
  • Tuesday 8th August
  • Friday 11th August
  • Wednesday 16th August
  • Tuesday 22nd August
  • Friday 25th August

The Academies

So far I have only released articles on two clubs, Ajax and Southampton, in this series. We look at some of the best youth prospects to have come through the academy and follow them as they progress in their careers on FM.

The plan is to condenseĀ the content into one post instead of two or three.

To be released on:

  • Tuesday 1st August: FC Barcelona
  • Friday 4th August: Paris Saint-Germain
  • Wednesday 9th August
  • Tuesday 15th August
  • Friday 18th August
  • Wednesday 23rd August
  • Tuesday 29th August

10 Years On

  • Thursday 10th August

A New Series

I can’t give too much away about this new series, but it will run weekly throughout the year and hopefully well into next year.

To be released on:

  • Monday 7th August
  • Monday 14th August
  • Monday 21st August
  • Monday 28th August

Feel free to just pick and choose!

I am well aware that this is a lot of content to read. Unlike videos, you can’t really do other things whilst readingĀ (like playing FM) and so a range of series may not appeal to all of you.

But feel free to just pick and choose the series that you will enjoy best! I appreciate each and every one of you who reads even a single post of mine.

Thank you very much for reading, I hope you will enjoy the content I will be releasing over the coming month.
