  1. I came back to the game and have been going through as usual...AND I AM ALMOST BEGGING FOR SOMEONE TO BEAT ME IN THE LEAGUE! ANYONE, I DON'T MIND, it could be Man City or Bristol City I wouldn't care...I am on a 120+ match unbeaten streak and it's just getting ridiculous to the point where I have even considered restarting through matches until I get a loss! But I can't, I swore to myself I wouldn't quit in matches in this save if I didn't like the result so I can't do it! All I can do is just keep things interesting for myself, rotating out the old guard and replacing them with youngsters coming through my youth team or buying from European nations. Here is my current squad: It's now 2024/25, and so much has changed from the start of the game. The following are no longer here: De Gea, Henderson, Romero, J. Pereira, Young, Valencia, Darmian, Smalling, Jones, Fosu-Mensah, Bailly, Rojo, Shaw, Pogba, Herrera, Matic, McTominay, Lingard, A. Pereira, Fellaini, Mata, Sanchez and Martial...To be honest the only regulars still around are Rashford, Dalot and Lukaku as well as youngsters Gomes and Chong. Also want to show off some of the game's regens I've got, either through my youth system or purchased young and raised through the ranks: Sasa Topalovic: Jordy Vonk: Radomir Strohmann: Mason Horton: Juan David Velasquez: Michael Yeboah: Philip Alexandersson: Martin McDonald: Jules Ayuk: The most impressive for me so far have been Vonk, who I purchased young back in the first couple of seasons and is now challenging Tiernay for the left-back position, and Strohmann and Ayuk, who I purchased at the start of this season and have been on fire. Strohmann is 20 and a 6 foot 6 beast with plenty of time to grow, and Ayuk has been smashing in goals left and right and is my joint top scorer along with Rashford. If there's anything else people want to see from my save let me know and I will happily provide screenshots
  2. Dang it should have held on, budgets have been released for next season and I'm okay now...dang it shouldn't have sold De Ligt, oh well, need to control the wage budget anyway
  3. I am...well things are...interesting in my game at the moment...I do like a challenge but right now, this is bizarre! The stat you need to pay attention to is second from the left on top...90 games unbeaten in the Premier League...90! And without any reloads or anything, I am literally begging for someone to beat me in any game I play...and it's not like I never lose...I have gone out of cups, I have lost finals, I once had an embarrassing loss to KRC Genk in the Champions League I posted about a couple of seasons ago on away goals when they put 4 past me at Old Trafford and never reloaded, yet for some reason in the League on this save I just cannot lose...WHY I ask myself, even after I just recently sold my best centre-back to save some money on the wage bill! I wish I knew...and that's not the most bizarre part, that's to come: What you are looking at is the right hand side...earlier this season the board slashed my wage budget by £1 million per week, granted it was very high and I probably should have managed it better but still...I am up a sticky wicket. That's why I had to sell De Ligt to PSG...he wouldn't renew his contract and he wanted to go, even though I was successful in persuading him to stay by telling him he was a popular figure in the dressing room. Managed to get £100 million for him. Any chance to slash the wage budget I am taking at the moment...that's why I am also happy to let Lewandowski's contract run down this season, he's on £300k+ a week and he's starting to decline...but I am probably going to have to sell another high-earning player to balance the books and promote youth in their place. Probably thinking Lukaku as I have several young strikers waiting in the wings who are first team ready
  4. Also something I don't think has been talked about much in these topics is the coaching staff...got a few familiar names in mine that people should recognise
  5. Usually play him as a CAM, but can fill in on the left wing when I'm resting Jadon Sancho Thanks, good to know. Tried him all around the place and he worked best as either a CAM or a playmaker in centre mid
  6. All three of those are in or around my first team right now, here are some current screenshots: Gomes: Chong: Greenwood:
  7. After a month or two I have decided to return to my FM 19 save with Man Utd. All is going just as I left it...us winning unlike real life Just a question. Marco Asensio...what is his best position? Right now he can play the centre and right of midfield, all across the attacking midfielders and even up front. Where have you found the most success with him?
  8. I think I might take a break from my United save, and try out a new team for a while. I'll probably come back to it soon though
  9. An unbeaten season, good stuff...just the CL final to come at Old Trafford against Liverpool
  10. No current philosophies and no current investement...let's see how this plays out
  11. Transfer embargo enforced...changes are afoot!
  12. The game is afoot, let's see what happens
  13. Got an interesting question from my tunnel interview before my Carabao Cup 4th round game against Liverpool...apparently, Avram Glazer might be interested in selling up! Interesting times ahead
  14. Start of the 2022/23 season, annoyingly lost the Community Shield to Liverpool but my start to the league has made up for that Absolutely steamrolling everyone in sight. Here's the squad: As you can see, not many changes, defo relying more on youth prospects for backups...here are my two potential five-star youngsters: As for transfers, only one signing and a bit of trimming: Martial, Pereira, Fosu-Mensah and Tuanzebe all gone, and one world-class midfielder in their place: Mandragora from Dortmund. Managed to keep hold of De Ligt, Pavard and Saul who were all sought after in the summer Let's see if my good form lasts. One more note: Paul Pogba is no longer my captain, it was recommended I switch it up. My new captain? None other than Kieran Tiernay...yup the young left-back we purchased from Celtic right at the start is now leading the squad, having previously been vice-captain. The new vice-captain is my other midfield general Saul
