  1. Got FM2019 a couple days ago after a 5 year absence from the game. My desktop is quite old now, so didn't load much in the way of database or leagues based on the warnings at the start but its zipping through so wish I had put a bigger DB on now as I don't mind load times all that much (Especially with my The Wit Of Cricket book to pass the time). Anyway started as Leeds as I always do, quite a big difference in some parts to the last time I played, but the basics remain the same. It's a bit odd not having to sell half the squad immediately when managing Leeds, as not experienced that since probably CM 01/02 ! With that being said, I literally have no exciting transfer tales to tell. Not one single in or out to speak of, though Kun Temenuzhkov went out on loan to Livingston. Pre-season was average, started with a 4-1-4-1 but after two drab draws, switched to 4-2-3-1and haven't looked back. Beat Stoke first up thanks to an early Jack Harrison goal. Brought back down to earth the foloowing weekend by Derby County (can't remember their managers name ), an 89th & 95th minute double from Jack Marriott giving them a 3-1 win. Then lost only 1 between then and the October international break (3-4 home to Preston). Through to Carabao Cup fourth round thanks to high-scoring wins over Charlton (3-2), Derby (2-2, 5-4 on pens) & Leicester (4-2). Despite what you may think, our defence isn't all that bad, though we are conceding at a rate of a goal a game in the league.
