#FM17 Around the World Challenge #17 – Back to Europe!

It didn’t take as long to get my 2nd job in Europe; 4 months to be exact (December 2023).  At least I’ll be earning money again after managing an amateur club in Samoa.

Digenis Akritas Morfou is a second division club that is currently lying in the relegation zone of the Cypriot Second Division. I had another job offer from  Akritas, who are currently last (!) . Not the best facilities but then again, my job is to complete at least one season here.

The next message as soon as I joined this club was the immense log of injured players. Luckily, not all of them are long-term ones.


Squad depth is a bit lacking, especially with those injuries.Somehow, we have an (over-) abundance of central defenders but only one striker and he’s supposed to be a left winger. Yikes.


Anyway, here’s our best players according to the assistant manager:fm_2017-01-30_12-01-40

Decent passing, marking and tackling. His work rate is a major plus for me when I look for a midfielder. Sadly, at the time of writing, he is currently injured.fm_2017-01-30_12-01-51Won’t play for us for another two months but he’s probably work best as an advanced playmaker with his flair but his passing kind of undermines this for me.
fm_2017-01-30_12-02-10He has a teamwork of 19 but is neither quick or strong. At least he can be re-trained to play on the other side as well.

Can we survive relegation with this lot? Maybe, but with the January transfer window looming, I might sign some reinforcements. But, with the next match starting on the same day, I need to think of a tactic that works… without a natural striker.

The database I used for this save is the  FM17 Megapack 200 Updates by claassen . The one in the link does have more nations to choose from than the one in the save.
