FM22 Analytics, tactics and soccernomics

After finishing 9th and then 8th in La Liga we’re desperate to make the next step and qualify for European football. In fact, if we don’t do it this time I’ll see it as nothing but adject failure.

With new signings and an aim of challenging for the European places we went into season 3 full of vigour and promise.

It started really well, quickly flirted with average and then went quite badly…

Girona FC – S2,5: Season 2 review

FM22 Analytics, tactics and soccernomics

After a 9th placed finish in our first season back in La Liga, we’re naturally optimistic about the future and looking to see how we can build on that and hopefully secure European football next season.
