Sochaux in Football Manager 2018 : database update & facepack

Following our article about FC Sochaux-Montbéliard in Football Manager 2018, we decided with Alexis de Freitas to release an update of FCSM’s database on FM18. The idea is to give you the closest view possible of the squad, by using our best knowledge of the team.This update of the database concerns each and every FCSM player : from first team to U17. To get closer from the reality, this update contains:

  • All long term injuries
  • Some missing players from the training center
  • Some missing major players from the U17 team
  • An update of players attributes depending on their performances this season
  • An update of every players CA/PA

We also provide you a « FacePack » containing the pictures of every player at the club.

Jeando Fuchs

Loreintz Rosier










We simulated the 5 next years as unemployed manager to see how it goes without affecting the save. Here is a quick analysis after 6 months :

The Lionçaux are ranked 9th after 7 wins, 5 draws and 7 loss, scoring 24 goals and conceding 23.

We’ve seen Florent OGIER, Mickaël ALPHONSE, Florian TARDIEU, Florian MARTIN and Aldo KALULU making a very good first half of the season, while it has been quite complicate for Jeando FUCHS, El-Hadji BA and Pierre GIBAUD. Moussa SAO and Aksel AKTAS didn’t start yet because of injuries.

Things to note : Alexandre NSAKALA and Boris MOLTENIS made their first team debuts in the cup, making the most out of Maxence LACROIX and Salem MBAKATA’s injuries. Martin FRANCOIS, Aubin LONG, Melvin SITTI and Loreintz ROSIER where also given their chance while Loreintz stood out by entering the rotation by playing 5 games and giving an assist.

Concerning loans, two players have been sent out to National 2 teams : Rayan Senhadji to ASM Belfort (18 games, 1 goal) and Bryan Lasme to Annecy FC (18 games, 9 goals and 3 assist).

Two other are on loan in National 3 teams : Maxime Juanole to Louhans-Cuiseaux FC (14 games, 16 goals conceded) and Gaetan Beuve to FC Mulhouse (12 entrances, 4 goals).

For the little story, the World Cup draw have designated FRANCE to face POLAND, EGYPT and COSTA RICA in their group.
