  1. Yep before last season Phillips predominantly played as a central midfielder with a brief stint as a #10 under Christiansen. I wouldn't say Berardi only plays as a central defender now as cover. Bielsa does not see him as a wing back and whilst he only started at centre back last season ahead of Jansson because of Jansson's suspension he stayed in the team ahead of Jansson until he got injured. He was also preferred to Jansson in the playoff semi final second leg. That said competent is probably right for him. Yep, Shackleton played as a central midfielder pushing forward rather than a 10. Gotts primary position now is a central midfielder but he has played quite a few times at right back and on the wing.
  2. He was sacked during the first season on my current save. 5 games into my second season and he is currently at Spurs. I cannot see him lasting long there as he has had a horrendous start including a 3-1 loss to my Leeds team.
  3. In the first season I beat Bournemouth 6-0 in the semi final of the FA Cup and then Tottenham 4-0 in the final as Leeds. This should not be possible.
  4. Anyone else hitting the woodwork a lot? My team hit it 1-3 times each match. On another note Leeds are overpowered this season. I would probably say Cooper, Pearce, Alioski, Saiz, Harrison, and Roofe have some attribute ratings higher than they should be.
  5. Unsurprisingly Leeds. On the main game I plan to get a long term Harrogate Town save going and I would like to try out the MLS after watching the FM19 YouTube videos uploaded recently.
  6. Alioski is rated as Leeds' third best player on FM after Jansson and Hernandez. In reality he has been seen as a weak link in the Leeds side and is a frustrating figure. He is a winger who does not take on his full back and he has a poor final ball. He does, however, have a high workrate and he makes a lot of runs off the ball to get in behind the defence. Coyle - I agree about his CA but why do you think he should have a higher PA?
  7. Vieira went backwards last season, possibly because he was playing in a team completely devoid of confidence. He has the potential to be a starter in the top leagues in the future but not as highly rated as he was in previous FMs. He is let down by technique and passing but he uses his strength really well. He was going to be back up to Phillips this season for that reason before the club sold him to the disagreement of Bielsa to raise funds. We have seen a couple of really promising midfielders come through the academy in the last 10 years where we knew they would play for England. Whilst Vieira was decent he was no where near the standard of Delph and Cook at similar ages (not played for England yet but has been in the squad). Experience in Italy may help his game though and Leeds fans often follow their ex academy players to see how they develop.
  8. For Leeds: Jack Clarke - Been a huge prospect in the academy for a while and this wasn't reflected in the last game. He was playing for the u23s at 16 last season and is in the first team squad this season at 17. He made his debut last Saturday against Brentford and Man City previously tried to poach him. He has been talked about tons for a while so I am hugely surprised it wasn't reflected in last year's game. Nohan Kenneh who is a 15 year old is also one to watch out for at the moment. He is a promising youngster already playing for the u18s. Jamie Shackleton - Another who has been talked about at Leeds for a couple of seasons and it is not a surprise he is in the first team squad now. Tom Pearce - Broke into the first team squad last season and plays for the England u21s. Another where it was obvious from following the u23s that he would breakthrough at Championship level. Ryan Edmondson - 17 year old who joined Leeds from York last season and made his debut in the last game of the season. Ahead of Dalby in the u23s and a squad player for the first team. Very strong and big lad. Leeds invested a lot into the u23 team last season. There are a number of other promising youngsters some of which were fairly reflected in the last game; Halme, Strujik, Rey, Stevens, Dalby, Kun. I imagine Leif, signed this season will also be similarly rated. Downgrades: Alioski Coyle (out on loan) - lower potential Sacko (out on loan) Denton (out on loan) Potentially may be upgraded but shouldn't be yet/upgrade should be very limited: Paudie O'Connor - broke into the first team last season due to a shortage at centre back after captaining u23 side. He had a few very promising games but he cannot break into an average League One team's side. Hugo Diaz - Played for the first team last season due to a shortage at centre back. He is a solid player for the u23s but he is not as good as the younger Halme or Strujik.
