Final AZ story post

Blog post #851

Welcome back to my blog! Dear readers, today I want to tell you how Dresden/AZ story completed. This long and quite complicated journey in Football Manager 2014 is over for me and you now.

Outcome of Dutch Cup

Dutch Cup was my only serious intrigue in the 9th season during two last months. So let me begin with the semi-final encounter against ADO Den Haag.

In one blog post till the story end

Hi my dear readers,

I have some kind of mixed feelings. It always happens when you have to stop playing your current save and switch to a new one. Football Manager 15 Beta will be released this Friday, that is the reason why I decided to accelerate current AZ story. Normally I play matches in Comprehensive mode. For the sake of story progress, all reported matches were played with highlights in Extended/Key mode.

There were no winter transfers this time. The only change: left back Wielinga with Abysmal morale was loaned out because we broke off due to his wish of playing in the first eleven.

As for the results I am pretty happy with them.

4-match test for AZ

Blog post #849

Hello dear readers,

The latest 4 matches could either bring my AZ to a group of title contenders or push out of Top 4 decreasing Champions League qualification chances considerably. Away games against Twente and Ajax + home encounter with Groningen could be turn into anything from 0-point story to 3 wins.

Well I passed the test with decent result.

Quite complicated season interval

Chasing Top 3

Blog post #848

Hello dear readers,

I am desperately trying to continue the 9th season in FM 2014 feeling upcoming FM 2015 :) It’s really good my AZ turned into very competitive Dutch team, so the story end should be exciting after all.

Season 9. The beginning

Blog post #847

Hello dear readers,

According to the latest news FM 2015 will be released quite soon (November, 7). So I should hurry up with AZ story. Moreover, it’s my only chance to play full season with this club.

The beginning is really successful, though as I actually expected. Surely there are pretty much problems with squad blending of new players. But all my players are too good comparing to the most Eredivisie teams. Currently just Ajax, PSV and Groningen have better squads.

Squad revolution I did not want

Blog post #845

Hello dear blog readers,

Hot summer transfer campaign is over for AZ. All of sudden lots of squad changes were made. I was intending to save a squad skeleton and build upon it but key defenders Mitchell Dijks and Wesley van der Vall rocked me with requests to move to bigger clubs. There was no chance to hold them in AZ…

Disharmonious low position at season finish

Dear blog readers,

This is blog update #843. My first season with AZ (season 8 in the whole story) is completed. Unluckily, I cannot brag about the results because I didn’t manage to achieve Top 8 and even dropped to the 14th position after all.  Just as a little excuse: AZ finished in 4 points from the 9th place.

Four AZ matches

Hi dear readers,

Thanks for coming back to True Football Manager blog. I want to share the latest news from my FM 2014 in this blog update #840.

AZ story continues after some squad changes made in January. That’s nice I can boast with 3 wins in 4 matches! I’m proud to tell you two of them were achieved over Dutch football leaders Ajax and Twente.

First transfer campaign in AZ

Hello dear readers,

I had two options before January:

  • Leave squad as it is and gain a middle league position reliably
  • Make transfers taking some risks

You know me :) The the latter option was more tempting, that’s for sure. Moreover, I thought it’s won’t be difficult to keep my club away from relegation zone even having squad blending process of new players.
