Eintracht Frankfurt: Season Six, Part Two


Welcome back to Eintracht Frankfurt! After another very promising start to a season, we look set to compete across the board. We’re on another fine unbeaten run, but once again face Bayern away in January…

The big questions are; Can we avoid and/or beat Liverpool? And can we finally win The Champions League?

But first, let’s have a little bit of transfer window action…

Eintracht Frankfurt: Season Six, Part One

Welcome back to Frankfurt! Season 6 is upon us, and this time there will be some tweaks to our approach in order to hopefully boost our chances in Europe.

It’s a bit of a slimmed down post this week. We’ll hit up the summer transfer news, of which there’s a bit more than usual, and then tuck into the first half of the season.

There’ll be just a dash of tactics talk and I’ll throw in some plans for a couple of our youth prospects when appropriate too, just as a reminder to you that I haven’t forgotten pesky aim number 4. But first, let’s splash a little cash…

Eintracht Frankfurt: Season Five, Part Two

Welcome back to Frankfurt! After a truncated first half of the season due to the 2022 World Cup, we’re ready to get back to competitive action.

We’ve been in spectacular form so far this season, and I’m hopeful this is the year we can grab the European crown. Or at least get further than Liverpool!

Things may not all go our way however, as though our form domestically is as good as ever, Bayern and RB Leipzig are not far behind us in the Bundesliga table.

There are plenty of matches ahead of us, but let’s start with the January window…

Eintracht Frankfurt: Season Five, Part One

Welcome back to Frankfurt! Here comes season five, and after our heartbreaking end to season four, how will the squad (and I) react?

To start today’s post I’m going to write a little bit about how I play FM, specifically focusing on how I approach squad building. This will largely feature principles I take into every save, irrespective of club or aims.

After that, we’ll be getting stuck in to the first half of season five, including the 2022 World Cup, which being held in November/December, gives the schedule a very different feel.

First up, I’ll start with some of the things I focus on in FM…

Eintracht Frankfurt: Part Twelve

Welcome back to Frankfurt! Today we’ll tackle the second half of my fourth season at Eintracht and see if we can continue our fantastic form from Part Eleven.

This is going to be a slightly longer post than usual, so make sure you’ve got a big coffee (beer?) for this one. Today we’ll hit the January window, cover the all important results and finish with a quick review and look at how we’re getting on towards the aims of the save.

I’ve gone for a little bit of a change to the style of this post (yes, again), due to how the season ended up going, so although this probably won’t be typical of future posts, I’d certainly appreciate any feedback you may have. Find me on Slack or stick a comment on here if you like.

Eintracht Frankfurt: Part Eleven

Welcome back to Eintracht Frankfurt! We’re three seasons in already and things are going very well. No-one’s been able to stop us domestically, but Europe is proving a harder nut to crack.

Today I’m going to tweak my standard formula a little bit. I fear the repetitive nature of our Bundesliga campaigns may make things a little dull, so we’re going to blitz through half a season here, and I’ll write a little less about results, and chuck in a bit more about some players.

I’m giving serious thoughts to how I want to chronicle the rest of this save, but for now I just want to catch up and we’ll see what comes next later on.

So we’ll have some tactics, transfers and all the usual merriment as season four gets well underway. But as ever, I’ll start us off with some club background stuff…

Eintracht Frankfurt: Part Ten

Welcome back to Frankfurt! We’re having another strong season so far, and I smell silverware…

frankfurt

We’re still in every competition, and playing a more attractive style that is much closer to the way I want to play.

Today we’ll cover the last few months of season three before doing the traditional brief season review and taking a look at how we’re getting on towards achieving my five main aims for Eintracht.

But first, a quick mention for some “behind the scenes” housekeeping to get us underway…

Eintracht Frankfurt: Part Nine

Welcome back to Frankfurt! The season has started very well, and after three months we remain unbeaten in all competitions.

We’re making some great progress towards some of the save’s aims, but not all, so despite our excellent first two seasons, there’s still plenty to do. Most importantly, I’m still really enjoying both writing and playing the save.

Today we’ll cover the usual bits and bobs from the club. I’ll throw in a mention for a couple of the more promising U19’s, a little tactics talk, our work during the January transfer window and we’ll cover how things have gone during the middle four months of the season…

Eintracht Frankfurt: Part Eight

Welcome back to Frankfurt! Last time out we finished the season by securing our second Bundesliga title. To become true European contenders, we need truly world-class players. With how tight our board is, this might take some time.

This season, we’ll attempt to bring through some of our more promising young players, in accordance with the fourth of the aims of this save. Further to this, I’ll be trying to get through the season without bringing a single player in on loan.

We’ve got a bit of money to spend, and will be trying to fill the few gaps we have in our first team squad.

So for the post ahead, we’ll do a little housekeeping, cover a couple of the previously mentioned young players and our transfer work over the summer, before covering the first three months of the season.
