Hi there.... long time lurker 1st time poster.
Started my 1st save of FM19 with my beloved Leeds and must say I am loving it.
Currently 27 games in and 7 points clear. Using 4-2-3-1 formation. Below is my squad (written as I am at work) & in order of priority
GK: Blackman / Badiashile (Monaco £800k) / BPF
RB: Walker-Peters (Spurs Loan), Ayling (looking to sell), Berardi
CB: Jansson / Bednarek (Soton Loan) / Berardi / Bellushi (Palermo £1.8m now on loan at Villa)
CB: Cooper / Bednrek / Berardi
LB: Douglas / Pearce / Berardi
CM: Phillips / Forshaw / Shackleton
CM: Klich / Forshaw / Shackleton
RAM: Burke (WBA Loan) / Harrison (Man City Loan)
CAM: Saiz / Morilla (Gijon £1.7m)
LAM: Kean (Juventus Loan) / Antonio Marin (Dinamo £1.8m)
CF: Bamford / Grant (£2m Charlton)
Cancelled Loans of Brown and Baker in January which freed up £55k in wages.
Loaned out: Kun, Edmondson, Roberts and Clarke
Sold: Alioski, Roofe and Dallas for bout £16m combined.
Just in the January transfer window so looking to offload Ayling.
Saiz, Phillips and Klich aren't happy with me because I cant afford all their wage demands yet.
So far my key players have been Douglas, Phillips, Burke and Bamford. Kean and Saiz are hit and miss. Grant has been a great back up... 11 goals in all comps from the bench including 4 against Gillingham in FA cup.
