Geyland International FC nicknamed "The Eagles", is a professional football club based in Bedok, Singapore that was formed in 1974. They have won the Singaporean Premier League twice, the Singaporean Cup once and the Singaporean FA Cup twice.
Well, I've had a few fun saves on FMT21 this year, managing in England and Scotland and so I decided to try something different. Originally I was going to manage a team I normally manage in Melbourne Victory but when loading the other Asian leagues to make the AFC Champions League more fun I decided to have a look around and came across this team. What stood out to me was two things. 1. Green is my favourite colour so the badge and green kit really drew me in and 2. They are not one of the best teams in the League. I'm not a fan of managing the best team and so this appealed to me. I'm not under any delusions, the Singaporean league isn't exactly world class and although I've never managed there before I'm sure after a few seasons I will start to dominate which brings me to my next point:
What are my goals?
Well, first things first. I want to win the League and establish Geyland as the best team in Singapore. We have not won the Premier League since 2001 when we were called "Geyland United" after that my goals are to win the AFC Champions League and develop players for the Singaporean national team so we can see them at the World Cup.
This is my first write up for a FM save, I don't normally write about my saves but as this is something different I wanted to share. Has anyone managed in Singapore before? If so, what was your experience like? I will post another update tomorrow, going over the players in the team, tactic I will use and pre season results. Thanks for reading.
