As a Leeds fan I always take on Leeds on FM. Not had the prolonged success that some on here have had, but did manage to get promotion as Championship winners in my first season. I added Jonjoe Kenny, Jan Bednarek and Younousse Sankhare (of Bordeaux) on loan and sold Ayling and Hernandez, with Brown and Baker also leaving. I also added Antonio Marin for relatively little. In January I lost Stuart Dallas, and so brought in Solly March on loan for the season to help me towards the title. I also added Pelayo Morilla, who got a decent amount of game time and has a high potential rating.
I use a custom tactic that worked very well. I think I lost twice afterBoxing Day, but had some rocky form before that.
In my first season in the PL I added Sankhare on a permanent basis, whilst also extending the loan deals of Harrison and Kenny. I found that the wage bill shot up when your loan players return, and found it very difficult to get Ekuban, Anita, De Bock, Shaugnessy and O'Kane off the books that summer. I also added Dario Maresic to the squad as a better defender, as well as Ollie Watkins from Brentford, Jack O Connell from Sheffield United and Diego Benaglio from Monaco.
I fairly comfortably stayed up, which was always the aim, and am hoping to continue that trend this season. I've added Cragno from Cagliari (Benaglio retired), and Vagnoman from Hamburg. I also signed Eduardo Salvio to replace the outbound Alioski, and brought in Harry Wilson and Erik Palmer Brown on loan (as Harrison and O Connell both didn't want to be here this season). My last addition was Erling Haaland to strengthen our striker options. Hope it goes well.
