I'm managing Sunderland in League One. No signings and many tactics used to try to get the best from my players. It's not a bad tactic, but I think that I can take more from my wingers, who doesn't seem to play well like pure wingers as they lack speed. Also, I guess that speed is something that my entire team don't have and I really wanted to make a better defensive block (play with a 4-4-2, 4-4-1-1, 4-1-4-1...). What do you guys think?
Milton Keynes Dons Football Club (/ˌmɪltən ˈkiːnz ˈdɒnz/; usually abbreviated to MK Dons) is a professional football club in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, England, founded in 2004, following Wimbledon F.C.'s controversial relocation to Milton Keynes from south London, when it adopted its present name, badge and home colours.[n 2] As of the 2017–18 season, it plays in League One, the third tier of English football. Initially based at the National Hockey Stadium, the club competed as Milton Keynes Dons from the start of the 2004–05 season. After two years in League One it was relegated to the fourth-tier League Two. The club then missed out on promotion in the play-offs before it moved to the newly built Stadium MK for the 2007–08 season, when Milton Keynes Dons won the League Two title under the management of Paul Ince. Milton Keynes Dons also won the Football League Trophy that year. The team remained in League One until the 2014–15 season when it won promotion to the Championship under the management of Karl Robinson, however they were relegated back to League One after one season at the higher level. Milton Keynes Dons have built a strong reputation for youth development, boasts 16 disability teams and its football trust engages around 60 000 people; between 2012 and 2013 the club produced 11 young players who have been called into age group national teams and between 2004 and 2014 the club gave first-team debuts to 14 local academy graduates, including the England international midfielder Dele Alli. The squad: The squad is very good for League One standards, 100% good enough to get promoted back to the Championship, really the only weak area in my opinion are goalkeepers, we'll have to work on that, I think. The bookies seem to agree, so the pressure is early on! So why MK Dons of all places? I always like to manage in England and I feel like the League One is a good starting point, not too hard and not too easy at the same time, which is perfect for me. They have a good youth set-up and often produce gems, which go on to become superstars in both FM and real life (Dele Alli) Or like this man (teen ) Not bad for a 17 year old, very good physically with superb potential ability, watch out for this lad as he could become a legend. Anyway back to the topic, I also chose MK Dons, due to their reputation, it's always them who are shown as an 'evil' and 'heartless' club, without a history. Well, time to change that! I also love their kits, badge and stadium Let's get this going, I'll see you after the pre-season ends. Hopefully this is going to be a success.
