    Sutton United - Championship 2014/15

    It was fun and games this season at Ganders Green Lane, mostly because of a striker situation I had this season.
    Last year I signed Liam Head and I though that if I paired him up with a decent target man then they should score and create goals. To that end I signed ex-Wigan striker Callum McManaman. I though that his attributes would mean that he'd be good in the air, of course just because I never actually saw him win an aerial challenge in the match doesn't mean that he didn't win any.
    I finally got fed up with him when during the first half of a match two of his wayward passes ended up being intercepted and the opponents scoring. After that game I just gave up on him and transfer listed him.
    Liam Head was transfer listed not long afterwards because I got frustrated with him.

    That didn't leave me with many striker options, Paris Cowan-Hall was struggling for goals and the Manchester United striker I've been trying to get in on loan for 3 seasons struggled and some of his team mates didn't like him.
    So I ended up getting an Italian striker with a bit of promise and a Spanish striker with a bit more promise. I knew that I needed more potency up front as I sold left back Marcos Painter for ú1M to Derby. Marcos wasn't getting many games and I knew that he wouldn't be missed much. That let me buy ex-Monaco striker Terence Makengo, he's a litttle injury prone but with some luck I can manage with the odd niggling injury.

    This season also saw the first instance of the chairman selling a player over my head. The player was an English U21 right winger who actually struggled with the media pressure twice during the season and so wasn't a really big loss. The chairman actually got a decent amount for him.


    The League Cup wasn't much to write about, we lost 2-1 to Sheffield United in the 2nd round.
    The FA Cup saw us narrowly beat Gillingham in the 3rd round and defeat Derby 2-0 AET in the 4th round replay.
    That earned us a tie at home against regular EPL winners in my game Chelsea. In fron of the TV cameras we were losing 2-0 after 77 minutes but a couple fo tactic changes and more then a little luck saw Makengo score twice to take it to a replay. But Chelseas showed their real class to win 2-0 .

    As for the league, I thought that we would be very lucky to finish in the top half of the table. But in fact we finished 4th and went into my first playoffs in this save.
    I was really shocked that my young side managed to keep near the top of the table. We were never really close to one of the automatic promotion places, but were 3rd for a little while before a mini-injury crisis hit.

    In the playoff semi we faced Wigan. Unfortunately they beat us home and away during the season and so I was expecting a very hard game and was only hoping for a draw in the first leg away. Needless to say I was shocked with a 3-0 win against a lacklustre Wigan side
    The second leg was more of the same and we won without too many problems

    In the playoff final we faced Derby. I was a little more hopefull against Derby as I got 4 points from them during the season. We cruised to a 3-0 lead only for Derby to pull 2 back in the last minutes of the game including a rebound from a penalty that my keeper saved in injury time. So the [url-http://i219.photobucket.com/albums/cc286/spankie_uk2002/2014/SuttonUtdvDerby.png]3-2 victory saw us win through to the promised land[/url]

    I managed to sign a few players for the first team and a couple of players with potential who may or may not make the grade.
    I don't know how many of my squad can make the step up but I've got the feeling that a few of them should do well, especially as they've now been playing together for a few years.

    Dean Cronin was made captain this season and despite feeling under pressure at being made skipper at 19 he did very weel and had the highest average at the club.
    Cedric Levavasseur was Cronin's defensive partner and was also the supporters player of the season. I'm not sure whay, but perhaps the fans like a bad boy and with 3 red cards Cedric qualifies for that.
    Kevin Reilly will hopefully improve next season. I really hoped that he could pull the strings in midfield this season, but 32 year old Andy Dorman ended up doing most of that. They even played togeter at times during the season and having 2 attack minded central midfielder is fun in a squeaky trousers kind of way.
    Ignacio could end up being a decent poacher for Sutton. The second goal he scored for us was a little odd, it was from a corner that was cleared to a lurking Reilly who hammered in a long shot that seems to clip Ignacio on the buttock.
    Terenc Makengo is one of the player I'm certain will do well in the EPL as long as I can keep him fit for most of the season.

    The club's finances are in a decent shape so far. At one stage we had ú3M in the bank, but improved contracts for some players put a dent in that.
    Also a new stadium is an even bigger drain on the finances, at about ú190k a month. Hopefully a couple of season in the Premier League will mean that I won't even notivce the loan repayments.

    Next season
    The only real aim is survival in the Premier League. I'll also need to sign a few more English players. Hopefulyl I can sign starting defensive midfielder and a pair of winger, also another striker would be handy.

    I've alreday played to the 25th of June and I've had this guy come into my U18s and my caches rate him a potential leading EPL left back.
    I have just offerend him a pre-contract as I'd be shocked if I see a player with as much potential as him very often.

    Kingstonian (2022/2023)

    Premier League Prediction - 19
    Premier League Position - 10


    Table
    Graph

    Summary
    Suprised not only the media prediction but myself by ending as no 10 in our first premier league season.
    Made a couple of good signings and we played fairly well all season exept in the cups where we went out in our first round in
    FA Cup and League cup. both loses where to much lower rep. teams, so that was pretty bad.
    Just got the news that the stadium will be increased by almost 9000 seats which will give us a capacity of about 26000.
    Furthermore we are upgrading the youth facilites for the 3rd or 4th year in a row. Im quite impressed with my board willingness to upgrade our facilities.

    Squad


    Kaldirim Our first and most expensive signing this year and his stats talk for himself. Great great prospect and a bargain.
    Although he got injured and missed 4 months. I hope he isnt injurie prone.
    Skelton Another new signing and our first English international
    Alvarez Once again top goalscorer in the club and 3rd in the PL. Unbeliavable he can keep scoring with his maybee not that impressive stats

    Transfers

    Goals for the upcoming season:
    Another midtable would be great, hopefully i can stay away from the relegation zone. I would really like a nice cup run as well

    If you've been having issues with the match engine I would as the patched version is a lot better, the home-grown issue should also be fixed.

    Tooting & Mitcham United FC - Barclays Premier League - 2022/23

    Last season we finished in an unexpected 3rd position and entered the Champions League for our first outing in Europe.

    League Table
    League Positions Graph

    I was right, last season we were punching well above our weight. Despite a good start, we slid into the bottom half of the table before clawing our way back up towards the European spots. It is no big surprise that we will not be in the CL next season.

    FA Cup - the highlight of the route to the final was without doubt this epic semi, but the final itself also ended in similar fashion. Finally, we have won our first cup.

    Carling Cup - things were looking good until the final. That made it four cup finals in four different competitions and four losses.

    UEFA Champions League - we had a tough group but a few decent result put us in a goos position, which we blew with a loss at home to Werder Bremen.

    UEFA Europa League - a late goal ended our run abruptly.

    Transfers - Blackmore is a talented looking youngster and Rai is a quality player but we didn't really sign enough players.

    Squad - we just don't have the strength in depth to challenge at the very top. Unless we get some money into the club, this group of youngsters are going to be all we have.

    Key Player Profiles:

    Anderson - I was ready to sell but he's had a great season.

    Rai - the new signing, who took on the 'Karner' role.

    Dale Ellis - he did well but I really need a better striker.

    Arie de Vries - my captain, who wants to leave. I'll cash in if he doesn't change his mind.

    Stephen Agbo - a young full back who has been with us a couple of years now.

    Next Season

    My simple aim is to get back into the Champions League. We have finally got ourselves a trophy so I will be taking the cup competitions easy next season with a firm view on the league.

    I'm hoping there will be investment into the stadium, which currently holds around 25000, but my finances are a bit up and down at the moment.

    I may have gone a little loan crazy having brought in 10 players on loan so far - mainly to provide cover.

    Though still haven't managed to find a new keeper who's interested in joining me, at least I finally got a youth keeper promoted he's even the best of this years bunch though with only half a star potential.

    Into the FA Cup 4th round, JPT North Final amd 1st in January. Finally got Bouazza to sign for me. Been trying to find a RB but none available for loan that are under 23 and my transfer balance is nil after converting it to wage budget to be able to pick up some quality free transfers. So tied on points, two games in hand and superior GD. Now to try and maybe pull off an upset against WBA who I play at home in the FA Cup, continue the search for a Championship quality RB, win the JPT for my first cup or reach the final and get automatic promotion in the league to the Championship.

    I put the DDT in the vista pathway metioned in the quote but when i load the game only the team Holland one is there. I tried putting it in a few other folders but had no luck there either. Some peole were having this problem at the start but managed to fix it, however they didn't post up how they done this.

    So is it ok to use this new DDT?

    I want to start my new game soon since I finished my first save.

    one noticeable difference is that the latter file has no RETAIN_PLAYERS for kingstonian, whose unique id is 670. I wonder if that mediafire link is messed up and the first link isn't?

    Cambridge City 22/23

    Table

    Graph

    Season Review: We won just about everything, and most of it was easy. The three games we lost were all game right before a Champions League game where I had to rest players, fad I not done that I think we would of gone defeated. Also won the Community Shield.

    This will be my last report with Cambridge City since I am restarting with a new team since the new patch is out. Looking forward to a another rise to the top.

    History:

    Carling Cup

    FA Cup

    Champions League

    Domestic Leagues

    FA Cup Final

    Carling Cup Final

    Champions League Final

    Club World Championship Final

    Euro Super Cup

    Cup Review: Won everything but the Euro Super Championship, went in thinking it would be a easy win and did not make the changes I normally would during the game and we let a goal in late.

    Other than that was smooth sailing, felt some pressure in the Carling Cup to threepeat, one of my main goals for the season was to at least do that and win the FA Cup, was not counting on back to back Champion League wins.

    Transfers

    Squad

    Finances

    Players:

    Ceccarelii - GK: Super GK one of the big reason for the success we had.

    Araujo - DC: Remains the best player on the team, and possibly the world, all of those goals are from corners, mostly when playing weaker teams who don't have anyone that can match him physically.

    Hogg - DC/R: Cemented his spot convincing me I don't need another DC.

    Jose - DL: My biggest buy ever was well worth the money he just dominated the whole left side of the field all season.

    Williams - DR: Would be replaced if I keep the save going.

    Marconi - DM: Silent workhorse who had been good up until this season where he just was not preforming where I needed him, would be replaced if I keep going.

    Ashe - MC/R/L: Solid season, really good battle with Harrop for who to start, I think its one of the reason they have developed so quickly.

    Kimble - MR: Locked up his spot as the MR for a good long time.

    Funnell - ML: Solid player, worth the money I paid over all, pairs well with Ashe or Harrop.

    Harrop - MC/DM: Retrained him to Defensive Mid this season since Marconi was not playing well from time to time.

    Tales - S: As you can see had a much better season, but Anderson is giving him a run for his money as the second choice.

    Anderson - S: My very quality back up striker who keeps trying to force his way into the first team.

    Saavedra - S: Another epic season probably the second best player on the team. Going to miss him in my new save.

    ------

    National Team 22/23: Ireland

    Took them over in early January, squad over all is decent, a couple good young players and some old vets still playing well. Went on to win the Four Associations Tournament, I feel we over preformed though, really should of lost to Wales who seems to have a very strong team.

    Matches to date

    Four Associations Tournament

    UEFA Euro Championship (Was not in charge for any of these, not sure how they will go the rest of the way)

    I ended up with a pretty good season, update to follow, but my god, the new patch kicked my ass. I was storming through everything up to March, I went to bed last night, got patched without realizing it, and next thing I knew, I was scrapping for every point. My goals for next season are going to be to put together a new tactic that actually works on the new patch. I may even have to spring for wingers!

    no i installed the game from the disc. no steam updates or anything either as i dont have net at home.



    I put the DDT in the vista pathway metioned in the quote but when i load the game only the team Holland one is there. I tried putting it in a few other folders but had no luck there either. Some peole were having this problem at the start but managed to fix it, however they didn't post up how they done this.
    If you're using the 10.2 database then the DDT file needs to go in the 1020 folder, not the 1000 one.

    No i was using the 1000 database. I have downloaded and installed the new patch but i still get the same results with only the team Holland file showing. I tried putting the DDT in the edt folder in 1000, 1010, 1020 and the editor folder but with no success.

    Dafuge is it ok if i start a new game on the 10.2 Db and just retain all players in England? if not can someone upload a save game saved on the 24th June please?

    FC United - Barclays Premiership - Season 2016/2017

    Well this was a fantastic improvement on last season and it could have been so much better. I am delighted with our Europa League victory especially, elevating me to United legend status. The victory over Roma in penalties was just the pinnacle of satisfaction as a manager. Our league position was very good, sitting just inside the top 6 at fifth, however up until the final few games, we could have reached as high as 2nd. This is all very exciting news as FC United head into their third Premiership season.

    League Table

    Our FA Cup run was also encouraging. We reached the Semi Final but went down to a very good Everton side 3-1. Also, we reached the League Cup final but for the third time in my time at FC United, we lost a cup final. Better luck next time boys

    FA Cup
    League Cup
    Europa League

    We signed just five players going into our second Premiership season, but they all played a large part, with new goalkeeper Brad Guzan probably being the pick of the bunch. Robinho, another one of my successful free transfers, proved to be excellent despite his old age playing 30 games with an average rating of 7.1. Tim Wohlfarth was also very good, but considering the price I paid for the ex-Man Utd man I was slightly disappointed. Vanden Borre got down to the nitty gritty and did very well in our makeshift defence for the season. N'Koulou proved to be a fantastic piece of business, buying the Chelsea reserve for 6 million and then selling him 5 months later for 11 million to Man City, the largest we have received for a transfer. Considering that N'Koulou was not one of our better players in those five months, I was delighted to accept the offer.

    Transfers

    Caamano was again the star man for FC United, finishing atop the scoring charts for the second season in a row. He finished with 25 goals in 36 games, slightly less than his 28 from 35 last season. He was simply pivotal in our successes but his strike partner, Simon Church (who was a huge disappointment last season) came into his own and proved his potential to be a fantastic striker for our club. It's a shame Church requested to be put on the transfer list at the end of last season, as I regret not giving him his chance. He was excellent for us when I did come to use him around Christmas time, getting 14 goals in 26 games, and when considering this is a team with top goalscorer Caamano and also Arnautovic, it's a wonder Church pulled this off, a star player. I can only hope he requests to be removed from the transfer list, as I would like to keep him wearing FC United colours for a while longer.

    Aims for Next Season:
    With the strides we made last season, I expect nothing more than a push for a Champions League place and to hopefully give Man City, who I can only expect to win the Premiership once again, a run for their money.

    CAMBRIDGE CITY - PREMIER LEAGUE - 2015/2016 - SEASON SIX

    Media Prediction - Back to old ways as the press insist on us finishing rock bottom.

    League - Straight forward win here although after the title was won and due to huge fixture congestion and tired players we lost a few more games than I would like. Amongst these was a record defeat of 4-2 away to Liverpool. No doubt getting revenge for us defeating them 6-1 earlier in the season. The squad was definitely down to the bare bones although we did manage to get a loan in from new parent club Juventus. Once again Marc Spellman had an outstanding season.

    Europa League - I've always found European competition in FM to be a lot easier than National competitions. We easily won all our group games which included Ajax. Saint Etienne and Sporting Lisbon were easily dispatched too but then we bumped into Ajax again. Won 2-1 at home but lost 3-2 away. Thankfully the away goals rule worked in our favour. Another toughie in the semis as we were held to a 2-2 draw at home to Fiorentina but then we dominated the away leg to win 3-2 (5-4 on agg). The Final at Stade Velodrome was first Euro Final and it was against the mighty Inter Milan. Thankfully we came out on top.

    FA Cup - After defeating Liverpool in the 3rd Round (thats 3 times in 6 years we've knocked them out now) it was pretty straight forward until the semi-final against Chelsea. Chasing so many titles late on the season took its toll but the semi was indeed a classic with Chelsea winning the shoot out.

    League Cup - Always good to get an early Trophy under your belt. The Final was indeed sweet as we gained revenge on Manchester City who defeated us in last season's FA Cup Final.

    Squad - The annoying thing this season was that during the 1st transfer window we had a transfer embargo because of a failed takeover attempt. This was following by another successful takeover by the same guy (Robert Sullivan) forcing another transfer embargo in January. This of course meant no new players coming in apart from Real Madrid midfielder Julio Alberto Alvarez. At ú3m (paid for outside the transfer window) the wonder kid was a great addition to the club in January.

    Well the takeover was completed in February and the new owner pumped in ú5m and then cancelled our youth and training upgrades. Amazing because I don't remember us having any. Last season's big problem has now gone in that we had a capacity of just 1,900 because only seats were allowed to be used in Europe and the Premier League.

    We now have a fantastic 13,477 all-seater stadium. For the new season I was given a transfer budget of just over ú50m. A few new faces have come in and then promptly went out to the Olympics!!!

    Compare this to Marine who in FM08 I got it expanded past 50,000
    The field to the left belongs to the secondary school down the road that I used to go and the green space above the ground as the picture shows it is a 3G astro.

    Fantastic work SMSL You've gone and done a Mikael and won your league in every season from the beginning! Spellman has the potential to complete the Danny Roberts challenge if you keep on going with the save after you complete the challenge!

    Hello does anyone know how to get Nuneaton to expand the ground as the board wont let me. Trying to win the premiership and start to complete the challenge when you cant pay premiership wages is proving difficult.

    It's been an interesting start to life in League One - the other teams have quite literally decided to stamp their mark on my players by hacking them down also having to play twice a week isn't helping.

    Luckily the loan rules only apply to Domestic loanees - so I could actually field a full team of loanees with my French based ones not counting towards the loan limit and some of them are even counted as Homegrown

    On the plus side Everton have just thrashing me 5-0 in the Carling Cup, but I earned ~ú200K from the game this time so we are now out of the red and I may actually be able to sign some players.

    Meh as if schools need that much space, the Liverpool council were quite happy to kick people out of their homes in FM08 so I could expand my stadium

    Who's silly idea was it to build a new ground in 2007 with no expansion space

    Nantwich Town obviously. Not sure Gus Crazy would be too impressed if IRL if his school/college has to move due to the fact you want an expansion for Nanny Town.

    I've reloaded 50 times now, and still haven't settled on a team. I've kept saves for Bradford PA, Kingstonian, and Horsham, in case I give up on reloading. Right now, however, I'm happy to keep on reloading until I get a unqiue team.

    Also, Nuneaton have popped up every single time. Them b*tches.

    I had something similiar in 07 i think, a guy named Bradshaw.. no good stats but scored over 600 goals for me ! Its hard to drop a guy because of his stats if he keeps on scoring like that =)

    Same I stopped counting at 200 last night, rarest team I got so far is Hastings, if I don't get Ferriby by tomorrow I guess I will go with them.

    I wanted a lower rep/facility side to make it harder this time around.

    Agreed. I just whizzed by opportunities for Wealdstone, Burscough, and Boreham Wood. I'm aiming for > 1000. If Truro is possible, then anything is possible!

    Merthyr Tydfill League 1 2021/22

    Table

    Position

    FA Cup - 3rd Rd
    League Cup - 2nd Rd
    JPT - Winners

    This was a fantastic season as with my new strike force we were around the playoffs early on before taking over at the top after xmas. Huddersfield were always there abouts and a loss to them with 4 games to go meant the title went down to the last game but a 5-0 win secured the title in style.
    The league cup ended in a narrow 2-1 loss at home to Premiership Bristol City. In the FA cup i was thrashed 4-1 at home by premiership Cardiff (who finished 4th in prem)
    In hopefully my last JPT i again denied Huddersfield beating them 4-2 in extra time in the final.

    Transfers

    My championship standard keeper Orsini was sold by the chaiman at the start of the season along with Lara (history) in Jan. My strike force from last year Clifford (history) and Black were sold on.

    Squad

    In defence the signing of Muller was crucial as the defence tightened up with Rivera and Iddi doing well.
    In midfield Moncur had a record number of assists and Rodrigues was 2nd highest scorer.
    Up front Sepe started on fire before tailing off. Diaby signed in mar was rated my best striker and hit a goal a game. Lehmann was injured for 5 months of the season.

    Star player - took 9 games to score his first goal and didn't stop for the rest of the season. Rated at decent prem standard and signed on a bosman in jan of last season he scored a record number of goals for my side.



    Championship 2022/23

    Table

    Position

    FA Cup - 3rd Rd
    League Cup - 3rd Rd

    This was a good first year in the championship and with 15 games to go i was eyeing the playoffs but a poor finish meant midtable. Scoring was no problem but i conceded too many goals.
    In the league cup i went out 2-1 at home to premiership Man City. In the FA cup i was thrashed 4-0 away to premiership Arsenal.


    Transfers

    Noone (history) and Rodgers (history) had been good servants of the club but were in decline and let go. Clarke (history) had dropped down to 5th choice and was sold on.

    Squad

    In goal Gagliardi had a good first season.
    The defence especially Banahene were disappointing.
    In midfield Morisse formed a great partnership with Rodrigues.
    Up front Diaby made a good start but faded so Amestroy and Lehmann were my main strike force and stepped up well. Due to lack of injuries last years main striker Sepe barely featured.

    Star Player - Rated 5th best midfielder by my ass man and coaches, showed again how wrong they are, with his constant goal threat and good performances.

    Can you give some tips on how you manage to progress so fast, score so many goals? Especially how you managed to win EPL in your first season out of Championship?

    i have a 23yo defender Banahene who is rated at leading championship level but has been turning in rubbish displays last season and this season (im in dec). His contrct is running out and he won't sign a new one, valued at 650K i offered him around for 1 million + 50% sell one.


    Should have asked for more - nearly 60 clubs made an offer

    Okay, I've downloaded the new patch and I'm holidaying again. This should be good, with all the teams' reputations changing and stuff.

    I've decided to screw all the reloading and go with Oxford City.

    he's now 4th choice centre back so i want to cash in on him, last season and this in 32 league games he has averaged 6.5, and about 6.8 in cup games. there has been too many mistakes and games with a rating less than 5.

    Hang on a minute. Teams reputations changing?? Why did I miss this. I just took Boston Utd as I couldn't be bothered sitting here for hours waiting for a low rep team to come up. Does this mean teams that were previously obscure are now a bit more common if you do enough reloads. If so I may do a few reloads and try and get a team that not as many people have chosen.

    If any one knows what teams are likely to come up that not many people have chosen for this challenge could you let me know. Just so I can keep an eye out.

    Crazy stuff, just been offered the Arsenal job. So hard not to just turn round and accept. They're doing somewhat poorly but with the offer of a ú61 million transfer budget I'm inclined to save the game at this point and possibly go back to it at Arsenal

    Do you use 4-2-2-2 formation all the time? Could you tell me what is your instruction for booth MCs? One is more advanced in attacking role from other one?

    2020/2021 - Billericay Town - Barclay's Premier League

    League Position - Champions
    TABLE
    GRAPH

    Well, I've said before that I'm telling a tale of two seasons, but this season, that was more true than any before. There was one season, through to mid-March, where we were unbelievably strong, scoring for fun and dominating all competitions. Then Steam applied the patch, and man oh man, did we ever limp to the finish line. Its times like this I hate living in the US and playing this game, as I would never have applied a patch until the close season if not for Steam. Anyway, the way that close season happened took a little of the vigor away from my report, so bear with me.

    Long story short, while we truly struggled through April and May, we had enough of a head of steam to only need to win one of our last 3 games to win the league. We had Man City at home, followed by Burnley and Blackburn away. The Citizens were on fire at the end of the season, and we never looked like winning a 0-2 reverse. Next up at Burnley we couldn't trouble their keeper and managed a uneventful 0-0 at Turf Moor. With those results, and Man City playing Chelsea, all we needed was a draw in our last match to end up winners. Sadly, Blackburn turned us over 2-0 at Ewood Park... but Man City saw of Chelsea to haul themselves into a tie, which we won on goal difference! Here's the tame, tame finish in the run-in.

    As far as the cups, we lost to Benfica in the Best Placed Qualifying Round on the Champions League, and then went on to win all other competitions for a quadruple. Again, I'd be more excited about this if I wasn't so disgusted with my post patch form. Both the FA Cup final against Man City and the Europa League Final against Chelsea were well contested, and really, I have no idea how we won.

    Europa League Final
    Europa League Results

    Quadruple
    FA Cup Final

    FA Cup results
    Carling Cup Final

    League Cup
    UCL results
    Community Shield
    UEFA Super Cup

    I actually spent money this season, brining in Coutinho, Nicolas Kessel and Moraga to bolster the spine of the team with some top quality. In doing so, I lost some real money, but I felt it was necessary to put us over the top in the league.

    TRANSFERS

    FINANCES

    Highlights of the squad this season:

    Manuel RodrÝguez Sßnchez - RodrÝguez Sßnchez is now a club Icon, and I can't bear to sell him.

    Lasse Ikńheimo - The Finnish starlet had his best season ever.

    Hans Blom - He contributed much in achieving his world-class potential.

    Nicolas Kessel - The German tyro solidified the problem DM spot and is well on his way to being a world class player himself.

    Marquinhos - The Brazillian had an even better season, scoring and providing in quantity.

    In the run-up to the next season, I sold three longtime club servants, as they had finally outlived their usefulness, longtime captain Federico Fratus, longtime DM Victor Vega, and enigmatic striker Alberto Romagnoli. All three date back at least to our League One days, with Fratus joining us in League Two. It was sad to see them go, but I knew I'd never stop picking them so long as they were on the roster.

    Just need to win the Champions League to complete this challenge, but I must say, I'm really going to need new tactics to do so.

    Wow really? I had alot of talent starting around 2017 or so, I had scouts on all the youth comps and tracking the national team, problem was it was very hard to sign anyone since the AI really holds onto them tight with the new 8 player rule thing.

I have my scouts searching all over england in every division as well. I have to use alot of reserves/u18 to accomidate(i think thats the word ) the 8 HG rule..

    I find that English teenagers generally start with lower CAs than other nations but quite a few end up top class

    After the first season you need to have 8 homegrown players in your Premier League squad of 25. (Though hopefully it's broken like the Football League one where players I've signed from France count as grown in England )

    It's because regens in active leagues get generated at 15/16 so they go through the youth teams in england, whereas regens in non-active leagues can get generated at 19-21 so they can go straight into the first teams.

    After just two weeks at the club the new Bulgarian Striker I have on loan already lists me and the club as favourties it's a shame he's only on a 3 month loan and is out of my price range.
