Fresh Dream Job story started!

Blog post 879

Dear blog readers,

Many thanks to you for taking part in the poll! It's quite unexpected to receive 410 votes in just 1.5 days. Frankly speaking, it was one of the most thrilling polls ever. The high intrigue level has been making me to check current poll results from time to time during the last day.

Crystal Palace won with 28 votes of advantage over second-placed Leicester.




Story concept

It's still a Dream Job Story but with adapted approach to how I should play Football Manager 2015. My top target is just to get a real pleasure from playing my favourite game.

Now I don't want to claim becoming Arsenal head coach at all costs. Managing Crystal Palace can also turn into a dream job actually. I remember my Nottm Forest story in FM 2013 - it was merely awesome...

Main story target:

  • Build-up Crystal Palace and turn it into a grand club
Optional target:
  • Switch to Arsenal in case of job offer from them. Make the best club in the world!

Creating new FM15 game

I had already managed to create Crystal Palace game. The following leagues were selected:


Local reputation and minimal attribute levels were remained the same as it had been in the first Dream Job story attempt. I just want to see how I will be able to grow attributes eventually.


Crystal Palace stadium and facilities:


I agreed with Palace chairman to support youth strategy developing the club.


Now it's time for squad review, staff changes, trainings, creation of tactics... Stay tuned.


Excited to blog for you,
Vitaliy Mokosiy
