Hello and welcome to my first (and possibly only) FM19 career on this site. The team I've chosen is RB Leipzig, and this will hopefully be a more light/humorous save.

Aim:

To win the Bundesliga at least twice.

To win the Champions League at least once.

To weaken Bayern Munich as much as possible.

My manager:

I am a relative novice at FM, so this save could go anywhere... but hopefully with Leipzig, or else the title may be a problem...

No backroom is complete without an assistant you can trust completely. I would have chosen our lord and saviour, but unfortunately Tony Hibbert couldn't be found, and so I went for a second choice...

While still reasonably trustworthy, I'm not 100% sure on what Osman can bring to the table apart from nightmares about the 03/04 season and Alexander Nyarko. 1.3k p/w should hopefully make him happy, because I want this man to be my successor ;)

The approach I've chosen for Leipzig is one taken from a previous save with Norwich, it can't be that different, can it?!

Any advice is welcome on how to improve it, because I'm probably going to relegate them otherwise. Signing recommendations are also welcome, because there's a serious risk of me signing Jonas Hector simply so that Bayern don't grab him.

good luck with the save, don't drink too much red bull!

just from a cursory glance at your squad page from the star ratings of your players, your back 4 look like they are the positions that need the most improvement (compared to the rest of your squad) plus with a gegenpress intense style you will need able bodies replacements to rotate otherwise the intensity of your tactic will wear you down during the season.

Maybe look at seeing which side your opposition is weakest (in games when you want to attack / feel more confident) and have the inside forward and wing back on the opposite side of your team set to attack, as this is just my opinion but only two attack duties in the entire team seems a bit sparse.

Taking from Mandy's advice, I swapped the Red Bull for a Fanta and decided to look at options for my back four:

This has had varying success, but I've signed van Beek from Feyenoord for £2m and Jannes Horn from Köln for £6.25m... this is so far looking bleak, I realised after van Beek joined that we're desperately short of German players for Europe.

On the other hand, I started my career with three wins and a draw in the EURO Cup qualifiers... the draw with Levski was shameful, Kampl managed to get an early bath for dissecting a man.

This must be what parenthood feels like :hammer:

Dreading the Dortmund and AZ fixtures all in seven days, but at least Leon Osman can make these players superstars, right? Next update should take us to the end of the window, I'll post any signings that happen to be made in the meantime. Feel free to ask for any information about the save!

In today's Tony Hibbert update:

I would still take him over Konrad Laimer at RB.

Today's session was arguably pretty successful:

That Dortmund game was amazing, we were absolutely dominated and yet Forsberg got a hat-trick! :D

This is always good to see, my choice is paying off ;)

This guy should be good cover at RB, we also brought in Jatto from Hamburg, which was a mistake. Also, the sky is falling...

The win over AZ Alkmaar put us in the UEL Group Stage, which looks like this for us:

Hopefully we'll still be top of the Bundesliga for the next post!

Today's Tony Hibbert update seems pretty relevant seeing how well Osman's done!
