Football Manager Blog About FM Shot

Dear Visitors,

Hello. I’m Alen Stefanovic, founder and administrator of the blog – FM Shot. I suppose that the vast majority of you, are playing the Football Manager or are planning an adventure “more than the game” right now. At the beginning I wouldn’t talk about the best sport simulation in superlative (for me), but I will immediately move on to the mission one man project. My primary task is creating the quality and interesting content for fans of this beautiful game.

On that road, I expect help from more experienced players who will make a big contribution to their personal comments, advices and the constructive criticism. I won’t surely invent “hot water” but I will try to give my best during the writing each article. You give the final judgment and I hope that the feedback will be great.

Why fm shot?

Finding of site’s name was a long and difficult process. I put 2 conditions – the domain must include this abbreviation “FM” and be top-level (TLD). The problem arises on the occasion of the adding “easy-to-remember word” to the abbreviation. The next words are in combination: guide, coach, goal, blog, informer, adviser and attack. Unfortunately, all is busy.

I find the site Shopify Business Name Generator site in the hope that I will solve the problem. The results arrives but they don’t satisfy my criteria. It is followed by a pause to find a word that would be WOW or awesome. The word “target” is more and more in my mind, but somehow it sounds very rough. At the end the “shot” solves all the problems, in some way represents the connection between target and goal that is very interesting for the logo of the site.

♡ Favorite club ♡

There are more of them but I will single out the top 3: Real Madrid, Hamburger SV and FK Partizan.

What to say for Real Madrid? The club was founded in 1902 and today it is worth $ 3.65 billion. When it comes to rewards and trophies, it’s better to ask a question – What did they not or can’t win?

The Love for Hamburger SV dates from a long time ago. I lived, as a boy, some time in Hamburg (the second largest city in Germany). I have lots of beautiful memories of that city. That’s why when I play Bundesliga, I don’t have a dilemma with team’s selection.

FK Partizan is a Serbian professional football club based in Belgrade. The angry opponent is Red Star Belgrade, and matches between these two clubs are known as the eternal derby. Every match is a real spectacle and the choreography is great.

✰ Tactics ✰

I love an attacking football. The formation 3-4-1-2 can be the right choice, but one are wishes and the other are possibilities.

When I play the Football Manager I try to begin the first adventure by choosing not so famous club and league too. From the options “easy-normal-hard” I select the hardest, so that the attractive football and the formation can be a problem. The challenge is to bring a small club from lower league to higher rang of the competition, and then to win prestigious prizes and trophies.

I don’t think that isn’t necessary to link to one system because the several factors determine tactics, and I single out a few of them: the team’s potential, opponent, league, terrain …

☏ Let’s go to work!

So much for me for now. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me, please. I would like to hear your comments about the football manager, as well as the first 5 moves when you take over the helm of the club.

I hope that you don’t use to much “load/save” during a defeat in the some final? In the other words, don’t make a mistake which I made as a kid. That moment when I threw out a bad habit, I started really to play FM.

In any case, I wish you a pleasant staying on the site, in hope that your time on FM SHOT isn’t wasted.

A big thanks » Angelina Milenkovic » (translation into english).

    Hey there 🙂

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind me asking what theme you’re using?
    (and don’t mind if I steal it? :P)

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the
    theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!

      Hello Justin,

      I am using Themify Ultra theme that has its own page bulider and a lot of interesting options. Youtube channel “NYC TECH CLUB” can be of great help if you decide on this wordpress theme.

      You have a very nice website 👌 but if you want speed try to reduce the number of images on the homepage and use as many icons and textual explanations as possible.

      Take care of yourself, too. I wish you much success in your future work.
