#FM15 #TheJenaJourney – the run in to the run in

Welcome back to #TheJenaJourney folks.  Things are hotting up at the Ernst-Abbe as we currently sit in second place in 2.Bundesliga with sixteen games to go.  Today’s sitting includes some tough games, I aim to leave us with ten games remaining so we will have a big idea as to whether we can do this or not!

#FM15 #TheJenaJourney – Don’t leave us Lux, don’t leave us!

Hello folks, and welcome to the now daily update of #TheJenaJourney – my #FM15 challenge to race Paul of FM Central to the Bundesliga.  He is Magdeburg in his own save, I am manager of FC Carl Zeiss Jena and I am aiming to get my side into the top tier of German football quicker than him.

We finished off last night going into the German winter break, having qualified for the German Cup Quarter Final and climbed our way to joint first in the 2.Bundesliga, albeit third place on goal difference. Continue reading “#FM15 #TheJenaJourney – Don’t leave us Lux, don’t leave us!”

#‎TheJenaJourney – Season Three

Welcome back folks to my attempt at beating Paul to the Bundesliga with FC Carl Zeiss Jena. As you may know, I have been promoted twice in a row and find myself in 2.Bundesliga in my third season in charge.

We are back in the cup today – in my first season in charge we lost to FC Ausberg in the first round, last season we were not in it, for some unknown reason, and this season we have already seen off Nurnberg. The second round draw gave us St Pauli, and I was really looking forward to this game. Continue reading “#FM15 #TheJenaJourney – finally, you are up to date!”

#‎TheJenaJourney – Season Three

Welcome back folks to my attempt at beating Paul to the Bundesliga with FC Carl Zeiss Jena. As you may know, I have been promoted twice in a row and find myself in 2.Bundesliga in my third season in charge.

My first game of the day was a match against a team that really shouldn’t be in this division, Hamburg. In many ways, I was delighted to be playing them as it was a sign of how far we have come as a club in two short seasons, in many other ways I was dreading it as, by rights, they should hammer us. Amare Conde’s worrying form at the start of the season led me to the decision to give Arsenio his first start, as our right winger. Continue reading “#FM15 #TheJenaJourney”

#‎TheJenaJourney – Season Three

Welcome back folks to my attempt at beating Paul to the Bundesliga with FC Carl Zeiss Jena. As you may now, I have been promoted twice in a row and find myself in 2.Bundesliga in my third season in charge.

I have had a nightmare. Not concentrating, I managed to save over my file with a new challenge that I was starting. Luckily my (V2) file had saved before the Nurnberg cup game, so we go from there again! Continue reading “#FM15 #TheJenaJourney It’s ok this 2.Bundesliga lark….”

#‎TheJenaJourney – Season Three

Welcome back folks to my attempt at beating Paul to the Bundesliga with FC Carl Zeiss Jena. As you may now, I have been promoted twice in a row and find myself in 2.Bundesliga in my third season in charge. We got hammered first game of the season, 6-1, but then won our second and are heading into the cup against Nurnberg. This will be a short update today, as I have been doing quite a bit of Real (Time) Oviedo today. Continue reading “#FM15 #TheJenaJourney”

#‎TheJenaJourney – Season Three, Update 1

Folks, let’s get this next season into context straight away. We have been made 50-1 promotion outsiders by the bookies, I think they think we are going to get relegated. The media aren’t much better, predicting 18th place for us, which sounds ok until you realise that it’s an 18-team-league. Continue reading “#FM15 #TheJenaJourney – bring on 2.Bundesliga!”
