On the weekend of Football Manager 2019’s full release, I am delighted to showcase an incredibly ambitious and exciting project, The 2Game FM Premier League, sponsored by 2Game, our official FM2019 supplier.
Content creator FM Structured has gathered 19 fellow members of the FM community to organise a huge online save. Each member was given a team in the Premier League, and would have to play one fixture a week, following the format of the real life Premier League.
I am delighted to be a part of this amazing project, representing FMInside. The team I have been given is a very interesting one, newly-promoted Fulham. The West London side have struggled in the opening stages of the Premier League in real life, with many speculating that manager Slavisa Jokanovic will be sacked should things not improve.
Lets hope I won’t have similar problems!
With the League kicking off on Saturday November 10th, each competitor was asked to submit their 25 man squad. After much deliberation and thought, I have managed to whittle this talented squad down to just 25 men. Here is my Fulham squad that I will be using over the course of the League:
Goalkeepers: Marcus Bettinelli, Fabricio, Sergio Rico
Defenders: Cyrus Christie, Calum Chambers, Alfie Mawson, Maxime Le Marchand, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Tim Ream, Joe Bryan, Denis Odoi, Steven Sessegnon
Midfielders: Kevin McDonald, Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa, Stefan Johansen, Jean Michael Seri, Tom Cairney, Matt O’Riley, Ibrahima Cisse
Forwards: Ryan Sessegnon, Andre Schurrle, Floyd Ayite, Alexsandar Mitrovic, Luciano Vietto, Neeskens Kebano
My first fixture will be against Fryman7’s Crystal Palace. Fryman is the current Football Manager world champion, so he won’t be an easy first opponent! Fryman will be streaming our game on Twitch (Fryman7). Despite the quality of our first opponent, I have full faith and confidence in my Fulham squad and believe we can start the League off with a win!
I am so excited to get this project up and running along with the 19 other FM Youtubers, Streamers and content creators. I will be providing weekly updates from the League right here on FMInside. I hope I can do FMInside proud! Lets go Fulham!
