    And we're 0 - 0 in the 91st minute and Inaki does this... https://gyazo.com/d767e908dc0837b8d31b0d1a8872d88b Another loss, that's 4 in a row. Time for work now but can we turn it around in January? Will we bring anybody in? Will anybody leave? We'll see!

    Winter Blues We beat Wednesdays to get things off to a good start but Vassell got injured and it's hurt us a lot. West Brom game we should of had at least a point. Ball was going off and Williams has kept it on for some reason, lost it, they've countered and scored. Bolton was even worse. I had to put on a 2nd squad due to fitness. Omayer who did score on his debut missed two great chances, Towell missed a penalty in the 90th minute, Taylor then missed a sitter and how did Bolton score? Rodak dropped the ball to their striker and Forde missed a simple header for them to score the only shots they had on target. So frustrating. Table looks a bit different now. Biggest problem is how poor my Strikers are playing. Proctor and Smith both missed sitters in these games to get us a point and I'm not sure how to fix it. On the plus side Mattock and Ajayi have both signed new contracts. I wouldn't be surprised to see some £££ for Ajayi come the summer, he's brilliant.

    Perfect November[/u[ So we had our players fit again to play Tika-Taka and that we played. Look at these results! I can't get Smith to work uptop. I'm retraining both Proctor and Smith at LW due to some games I've swithed up to a TM - S instead of IF - S whilst Williams was out. Potter came back from injury and is playing just as well as Poyet, was great to see. I needed to rest the main team for a game which was vs QPR. Jones, Wood and Inaki were brilliant. Everyone is performing apart from the DLF-S spot. I tried Vassell there against Norwich and he scored 2, so he's starting there for a bit. Smith is moaning about first team football but he doesn't perform, at all. Taylor made me eat my words. He's happy playing, new contract signed and has made the AMR spot his own. He assists, he scores. He's been sensational since returning to the starting 11. Robertson and Ajayi have a brilliant partnership at the back and when @Jamesbfc1887 asked me about the team I said they'd be my starting back two and it's ended up that way. Manning and Palmer may both have gotten goal of the month vs Norwich, we'll have to wait and see on that one. Team is brilliant and I can't see me changing much in January at all. Mattock was on about moving to a "bigger club". I've managed to persuade him otherwise, he's actually been amazing for me which I never expected. I think I need to tie Ajayi down now. West Brom and Middlesbrough are both interested. I do need the money, the accounts are poor but he's my best CB and could be here for years to come. This was sweet Oh and I found a youth player, retraining him LM. He may become better than any of my wingers, he may flop. We'll see. The next update will be tomorrow some time, not sure what time. Working evening shifts today and tomorrow. I'll fit games in when I can. I'll fix this mess of a code when I get home. My brexit as well. A nice one afaik.

    We are absolutely making the NYS a Fortress. I've played 3 games before I've gotta go to work and this is how they've gone: We had to change formation due to injuries, it's scrappy but we're winning games. Taylor has handed in a transer request. I mean he's only started 3 and come on as a sub 5 times but we're playing well without him. He thinks we're a worse team when he's not playing but the stats prove otherwise. He's created 4 assists out of 8 games which is nice, don't get me wrong but one player doesn't make a team. He's also had his own injuries to reduce his playing time. Poyet has been great at DM, Ajayi covered him when he was injured and played really well. I'm impressed so far. Both Bristol City and Birmingham games we changed to the Tiki-Taka formations to win and see out the games, so Taylor and Williams are playing, guess we just can't please everyone. With Newell and Williams both currently out, the 3 uptop suits us since all 4 strikers are fit. Forde and Taylor will have to play as CMs/DLF in this formation. We still have Vaulks, Jones, Newell and Williams out. Potter and Palmer are not fit to play yet so people need to play where we can put them and what works. I mean how nice does this look? Both the signings I made are working out. Inaki covers where we need him, he's played at both LB and RB and Mehemeti has 6 in 11 with 2 assists and 2 MotM awards. Hopefully I can play a couple of games after work tonight.

    Last update before bed. First, I've been majorly unlucky with injuries. I've just had three in one game, meaning Forde ended up in the center for me! September went well. Good wins vs Derby and Stoke. Villa, we scored first but then they were just class. Bolasie, Adomah and Kodjiia are just a class above. Forest I went back to an old tactic due to injuries, they scored, we scored and then they battered us. Even changing my tactic back to norm, we couldn't get a foot hold in. Table so far:
  6. How are people finding injuries? I'm not usually one to complain but I've just had three midfielders get injured in one game and I'm currently without 9 players from a 24 man squad. Feel like I've just been unlucky. In the Championship, I have 9, two have 8, two have 7 but on the flip side there's a team without any, 5 with only 2. Luck of the draw I guess.

    I've changed formation and we've finally got a win! We hit the woodwork 3 times as well! Leeds result so we frustrating. Vassell missed the best chance of the game and they cleared of the line twice! The draws we were 2 - 0 down both times and managed to get back. We had about four chances to win the game vs Hull but we couldn't get the ball in the net! Rotherham playing Tiki-Taka But we do have some good midfielders!

    This is going to be a long season.... Smith missed such a sitter. In frustation so I can change tactics a bit, I broke my wage budget and signed another midfielder

    So I've brought these in; Last Nomadic striker I had scored goals for me. Dumitru he was called iirc. May be a step up for him but best I can get. The LB I wanted went to Norwich for 10k p/w. I can't match that. Oddly enough the squad think I need more depth in midfield. I'm not sure how or why. I mean, this is what I'm competiting with:
  10. SpillBlood

    FM19 - Rotherham United

    Avoid. Though the extra cash would of been nice. I'm having to bring in two very back up players to compete when we have much better out of the club on loan. Purrington, David and Dom would fix my problems to no end. Yeah, they're a class team. Let's see how we do in our home game.
  11. SpillBlood

    FM19 - Rotherham United

    I feel like they'd get in behind. What I can see, no. There's a limit to 5 loan players in the starting 11 so it'd make it tight but they want wages covered. E.G Ashley Fletcher they want 10k P/W covered, we cannot afford that.

    Can we do better than we did in real life in the opening game? Yeah, we lost 5 - 1 so here's my attempt. The line-ups First half: 6th minute: MacLeod hits a freekick from 25 yards, it's just wide. 11th minute: Maupay shoots! But he's offside. Phew. That was close. 28th minute: Mattock is injured, Jones takes his place. 38th minute: What a goal for Brentford. Ball comes in, we clear and Macleod volleys it in. That was quality. We're into the break and we've not even had a shot. We need to change this up. They've had 9 shots, 1 on target. Think I need a 5 man midfield since Smith isn't exactly fit. Going 4 - 3 - 3. Palmer and Taylor replace Forde and Smith for the 2nd half. Vassell uptop on his own. Second half: 46th minute: Manning hits it over from a freekick, our first shot. 47th minute: Brentford score but it's disallowed due to a foul in the area. 59th minute: Williams goes close, his header at the back posted is saved. 61st minute: Williams solo effort goes wide. Atleast more encouraging signs. 63rd minute: Williams' shot is saved easily. Can we get one of them in? 75th minute and we're still behind so I'm going very attacking. 77th minute: Williams gets in but hits his shot wide. 80th minute: It's 2 - 0 to Brentford. Macleod gets his 2nd. 86th minute: It's 3 - 0. Maupay hits in a low cross. Maybe attacking was a bad idea. It's full time. We gotta play better then that.

    Pre-season We had more chances then Spartak but we couldn't finish them, I changed tactic and we've won every game. Williams was absolutely brilliant vs Parkgate and seems to score from that LM spot, Newell creates more from there. Problem is we now face Brentford. Smith is half cropped and Proctor is out, so I have one fit striker in Vassell. Proctor has been great so it's a huge shame. I've not been able to bring anyone in. I refused to give Kevin Constant a two year deal so he went else where. I've found a LB but doesn't see Rotherham as a good move so I have on my short-list, maybe he'll give in over time. Who knows? We have a week to bring two people in and at this current moment we'll be bringing in no one.

    FM19 - Rotherham United

    Welcome to the New York Stadium This is a bit of different challenge compared to last year. Last year was all about trying to get back to the Championship and under the superb Paul Warne(and I feel mean taking his job in the game) we managed to get back up, first time of asking through a great push through the play-offs. He's assembled a much better squad then last time we were in this position. No dead wood on silly wages, this time we have fit players with passion. The first thing I've noticed on the game is how good our loan players are and it's my job to try and get these lads to play well together and keep us up. There are noticeable wholes in the squad. We only have three strikers and one left back. So let's start with; The Team Goalkeepers We have the superb Marek Rodak but who has had the CA boost he deserves, he'll be your #1 for the season with Price as your back up. You shouldn't need to do anything here. You have two capable goalkeepers. Defenders Center backs - This is covered. Ajayi is your best, I expected Robertson to partner but it looks like it'll be Raggett and/or Wood. Vyner and Vaulks can cover here, with Zyner being your back up right back and Vaulks being more of a CM. Right backs - The vastly experienced Billy Jones will be starting, I was very happy when we signed him. Vyner will be cover. Left back - notice no s? Because we only have Mattock. We can look at bringing somebody in due to Purrington being our on loan or have one of the CBs taught to play there. Thing is, none of them have the pace to do it. I think we'll need another to cover for this season. Midfielders Center - This is a very strong area. Towell is the best of the lot and will be starting. If we use a two man midfield, Vaulks, Manning and Palmer will all be fighting for it. They're all good enough. Potter is good enough but is sadly injured for 3 - 5 months. Wings - Newell is your LM, Taylor is your RM. Forde and Williams play back up both of these. Not the strongest areas. I may look at a flat 4 - 4 - 2 due to this. Strikers I'm a fan of our strikers. I think Smith is better in real life then the game but he still has fair stats. Thing is, Proctor and Smith are target-men. Vassell has the pace. We can use this, but we need another pacey striker in. If we don't, we're expecting too much through the season from only three players. So... I need two players in. Problem is I need two players in for free. I already have 5 players in on loan and I need them all, especially since they are here until the end of the season.
