    Solid enough start there, things will improve I'm sure. I can't believe you've got rid of Mamadou

    Yeah second season at Utd is flying. 54 points after 20 games! Milinkovic Savic is unreal, in my opinion he's the best player on FM full stop. Billy Kee has been as useful as a silent alarm clock for me

    @warlock Decided to start a save as Accrington, Jesus it's one of the hardest things I've done on FM for a few years tbh, the players are just nowhere near League 1 level.

    @warlock I'm sure you'll turn it around the Barnsley faithful will stand by you. Sometimes the saves that don't quite go to plan and you have to work for sucess are the most enjoyable ones.

    @warlock What a season with Barnsley that was!

    [FM19] Leics is more

    Yeah he did, full length of the pitch after a 25 yard screamer.

    [FM19] Leics is more

    Great concept, it'll be hard though signing players just from Leicester is very restrictive, I can't even get myself to just commit to just England never mind one city. Glad to see you're keeping Harvey Barnes around, he's a class player definitely one of England's top talents. I'll never forget the goal he scored for Barnsley against Sheffield Wednesday. Matty James is another player I got a soft spot for but he'll probably just be injured for your entire save (not that he qualifies anyway)

    FM19 - Rotherham United

    Bottle job? Viniciuos Junior for £72m!!!!!!!!!!!!! Maffeo is a good deal, considering he's home grown I think. That French kid Roland looks insane!!!!! Don't know how you have the motivation to be six seasons in, I'm 3 seasons in at Barnsley and my motivation is wavering.

    FM19: Barnsley - A New Beginning?

    January Transfers: Outs: A couple of past first team regulars found they're way out of Oakwell. Unfortunatley for the like of Mowatt, McGeehan, Pinnock and Jackson we've simply outgrown their potential, I'd have loved to have kept them around for a lot longer but back to back promotions is something I really didn't expect. The one major loss I didn't want is Matheus Cunha. He's just started to settle in to the squad and he' gone in true Barnsley style. Bayer Leverkusen matched his release clause and he was gone . Fear not!!! Ins: Thilo Kehrer for £6.5m !!!!!! 3 years ago he moved to PSG for £33m, now he's at Barnsley!!!! A player who in my opinion has flattered to deceive throughout his career and has continued to do so in this save, hopefully he'll prove to be a fantastic signing. A solid BWM, with some great mentals. Oh hello there, who are you? Great loan move for him, sell for £11m and buy back for £3.9m in a years time. I don't think anything could possibly be more pleasing to the Barnsley owners than this. Marek Rodak joins, I wanted him desperately in the summer on a free but he decided to stay at Fulham but 6 months down the line he still hadn't featured for them. Classic FM signing this one, he's great this year in FM so fingers crossed. His stats are more than adequate for the job at hand. A couple of youth players we've signed as well. Review: Generally pleased with the deals we've been able to get through, although we weren't able to directly replace Cunha, so we'll see what happens.

    Yeah, complete end if spectrum for me, I don't have the time to do that. I've done 3 seasons with Barnsley, 1 and a half with Man Utd and 2 at Chesterfield which became a journeyman when I went to West Ham. Right I'm off to do some revision

    FM19: The English Football League thread

    Exactly my thoughts, but then I look at people who have saves in 2045 or something, with regens who have already retired having played for them for 20 years!!!!! and think "Why can I not do that", it's nice to see there are other like minded people and it's not just me . @warlock How many teams have you managed already this year?

    FM19: The English Football League thread

    Cheers, I've not finished with it quite yet, in the Prem it almost feels like another game though, having an entirely different squad after 3 years is slightly strange, now it's all about finding regens in 2021 and it's also weird seeing the club I support in the Premier League doing really well, the struggle of the EFL is where my heart belongs .

    @warlock Great start to the season, it's seams to be pretty easy with Barnsley this season. Difficult time of year irl to start a new save with the January transfer window, Potts has just been sol irl as well. I was looking to start a new save in the EFL, something a bit more challenging! Rotherham was the initial thought but the January window kind of put me off as Ryan Manning has already gone back to QPR, I might wait until after January to start a new save.
