FM18 Beta – A Match Engine Learner Save – PSG.

Why PSG, maybe it’s because I am worth it! (I don’t have the hair for that statement!) Or maybe it’s because the starting squad is quite strong with players who could adapt to the constant demands of tinkering tactics.

The Defenders – Martin Skrtel joined due to pre-season injuries to Kimpembe and Marquinhos.

Midfield – We did start pre-season with Thiago Motta, however, due to a cruel injury (cruciate knee ligaments) and an return eta of 9 months he decided to call time on decent career. The signing of Mo Elneny was justified due to this devastating news alone.

Pre-season and the opening fixtures.

The opening friendly fixtures were not what I expected from a team of superstars. The tactics were changed constantly and were loosely based on a 4 1 2 2 1. Despite these hiccups I stuck with the formation and tinkered with other factors.

We started the Trophee des Champions against Monaco with great belief. And the exchanges between both teams were lack luster at best. We struggle to stand up for the penalties and Mbappe and Thiago Silva miss respectively.

The Season so far

After a rocket of a post game team talk and a review in the way we were playing we open the start of the season with a home victory against Ligue 1 newcomers Amiens SC. This has been the catalyst to the good run of games throughout August and September.
