This is my FM 2017 Beta save with the club that I support, Newcastle United! I will run this save right up until the full release of the game on November 4th, so hopefully we can get through a couple of seasons.
There are no restrictions or goals on this playthrough, it’s a case of getting used to the game and its quirks before the main save and main challenge begins!
This first episode looks at pre-season and we play our first few matches, although the form is frustratingly inconsistent! Hopefully we can fix the tactics and get the team firing for the next few games.

Episode two is here and it is just as frustrating as the first! I feel like we are starting to get the hang of the tactic we want to play, but it could cost us our job before we fully figure it out!
I would describe our current form as poor, but not desperate. The board are still on side for now, but some disappointing late goals have cost us and we need to turn some of these draws into wins to get us up the table.
Good Lord. Being called into the boardroom to discuss your future is the most stressful thing in this game. I have only ever been sacked on Football Manager once in 10 years and I am one match from being sacked here.
Some absolutely terrible form has really hit us hard and I can't seem to figure out what is going wrong. I think it's a confidence problem but if we don't start winning soon, this FM17 save will not last long!
