Saw this, love it.

Coventry coming in at 18 for anyone interested:

Happy with that. Birmingham the only Midlands team above us. Can we start a campaign to bring those rules in?!

Surprised to see Millwall top, would have thought so many clubs in London would have spread the talent around.

Enjoying it so far, biggest improvement is how well the 3D match engine runs compared to recent years, particularly as my graphics card really ought to struggle with anything more taxing than Pong.

I'm a fan, liking you can talk to agents to get an idea of what their players demands are. Only issue I’ve had so far is Hamer is down as ‘Guga’ in game for some reason

They've even added Grendel

That’s nothing I’ve won 6 out of the last 7... I had one fan say a 2-0 win at Preston was full and the other not knowing we were playing - I’m in the play off picture.

Who did you sign? I couldn’t get any Championship quality players on a perm with my budget so had to loan in Anthony Gordon from Everton and Liam Millar from Liverpool

This is how I’m setting up

I don't know Jobello is our third best player on the game, be trying to move him on in January as he's worth £650k

Literally penniless - I’ve signed Allen Halilovic as competition for O’Hare.

i initially stated with a fluid counter attacking 5-2-1-2, which was solid. But coming into January with Jobello back I’m moving to a 4-1-2-2-1fluid Counter attacking.Seems to be getting better.

ive had problems with Hilsner but he’s getting sold. Godden has scored 8 in his last 8 for me and Walker has been dropped for Jobello

Playing three up top and having no money to bring anyone in the Cov squad is slim pickings, I've found so far that the best players to go alongside Godden and Walker up front is O'Hare and surprisingly enough Ostigard

Went the first 10 games without a win trying to replicate our 3-man defence box formation, but managed to finish 2nd in the first season after switching to 433. The key was also keeping squad morale consistently high, praising the players at every opportunity.

Tyler Walker scored 21 goals and my only signing was Liam Millar on loan from Liverpool. Bapaga scored a few screamers so worth delevoping him.

Now have a £38m budget in the Prem and been taken over by an ex-Charlton CEO.

How have you found VAR? I read online that the decision never gets overturned
