I started as Newcastle on FM19 a couple of weeks ago. Really enjoying this save. Currently at the start of the second season (P6 W3 L3 so far) having finished 12th first time around, surviving a takeover from a consortium mid season headed up by ex Leicester City midfielder Theo Zagorakis. Didn’t have the best finish to the first season as I was around 8th/9th with 8 games to go, winning only one. Lost in the second round of the League Cup and was knocked out in round six of the FA Cup.
Formation wise I tend to play 4-1-4-1 wing play most games, switching the mentality depending on who and where I am playing.
Notable transfers included:
In: Pavon 8m(10), Almiron 6m(8) Romero 5m(6) Cahill 1m(1.8) Tonoli 10m(12) Marin 7.5m(8) Butland 15m(18) Ntcham 15m(18) Gibson 12m(15) Passlack (Loan), Solanke (Loan), Abraham (Loan) Chambers 6m(8) Cresswell 5m(8) Hart 2.5m(3)
Out: Perez 10m Diame 10m Ritchie 18m Yedlin 18m Muto 18m Dummett 18m Ki 12m Dubravka 10m Clark 10m Lejeune 10m.
*Saviet 10m and Gayle 10m arranged transfers in Jan.
Very happy with my business so far, finances are great and plan to strengthen in Jan especially with two squad players set to depart. Probably need to strengthen DL, MC, AML and ST.
Open to transfer suggestions.
