Started a game with an experimental tactic 4-3-1-2 and its doing good. 43 games in and I'm 5th with an outside chance of 2nd. Signed up Liverpool as a feeder team, got Liam Miller and Tony Gallagher as squad players but only Millar has really played. Signed Idah from Norwich on loan and he's been immense, scored 33 in 39 with Walker alongside scoring 27 in 36. Got a chance in the playoffs if I can stay in there

Tyler Walker is the absolute business for me, Godden's not had a look in after an early injury

Think the honours were spread around last season, he was joint top for MOM awards with keeper Joe Wildsmith but Walker's led the average rating for three years running so far. Josh Pask and Dion McGhee on a free from Man Utd are also doing well, along with Eccles in the middle and the usual suspects of Hyam, Hamer, O'Hare and so on. Jordan Willis back in as well

Is the new game worth it this year lads? Considering whether to get it or stick with last year's game.

I would say so, so long as you're used to the games each year being small improvements across the board rather than huge changes

Fired up an old FM 15 Sky blues save just before xmas and haven't stopped playing.

I remember why I stopped and it was due to a few players moaning a lot about not playing, as I rotated a bit, so I got pissed off with it, but able to handle that aspect a bit better now.

Been City manager for 10 years from league One and doing v well winning 2 PL titles on the trot! That is all...

p.s. It's also the best contraceptive I know...

i've also got a new regen player in my youth ranks described as the "new Paul Gascoigne" !!!

Very excited by that, but a bit worried one of the older players will take him drinking a bit too early on in his career.....

After losing in the playoff semis I had a poor season where I finished 12th (still miles better than the media prediction of 20th) so Pask and Bapaga were sold by the board for £13m and £10m respectively

The good part of the season was Tyler Walker storming the top scorer by loads and also getting player of the year



Which makes the bookies' odds on him retaining seem a little steep
