Football Manager 2020

I’ll not be getting the new one, can’t cope with losing my 2019 saved game.
I say that every year about the previous year's saved game. :lol:

My current game I started unemployed with only the South African league playable, got a job in charge of Royal Eagles in the second tier and within about 5 years had won the Club World Championship with them. I got a bit bored with them so I added the US league and started applying for jobs. Had a couple of interview and got given the job in charge of New York Red Bulls, who I then went on to win the Club World Championship with after another three years or so.

Again started getting bored (The US league is buggy as hell) and so I added the English leagues and got invited for an interview for Man Utd (without me even applying for it). They didn't give me the job unfortunately (they gave it to the current England manager who told them he couldn't even take over the job for about 6 months :evil: ), but looking at their squad list, staff list and facilities, made me really want a crack at a genuinely massive club.

So my current aim is to win everything we're in for again this year with NYRB to bump up my profile further, and hopefully get a job with one of the big teams next season. Tempted to add the Spanish, French and Italian leagues too, to open things up a bit more. Maybe aim for a job with Barca, Real, one of the Milans, Juve or PSG or someone similar.

Then again, I'm also tempted to try out the J-League or a team in China as the next step in my career. Decisions, decisions.

Anyway, my point was, after spending so long on this career game to get to this stage, I don't think I'm ready to chuck the career away and start anew on FM20 just yet.

I'll probably grab it in next year's Steam Summer Sale. :)

Just got given an interview at Man City for another job I didn't apply for.

Again, didn't get the job. :evil:

Surely it's only a matter of time before I land a job at one of these big clubs. :)

I managed to meet the club's vision and win the league but very nearly didn't get the chance to finish the season.
I was sat in 3rd at the end of Jan and was threatened with the sack unless things started to improve. I was only about 5-6 points off top and had to ask for a month to turn things around which thankfully i did.

I was given a huge £2.5m budget for the Championship so had to use my loans carefully and currently sit 3rd after 6 games, W4 D1 L1.
My team:

J. McLaughlin

T. Fosu-Mensah (loan) - T. Adarabioyo (loan) - J. Antonio Ros - P. Heise (£550k)

Haven't looked at any graphics yet on this one.
Where do you download them from?

Anyone else having problems with 1v1's vs the goalkeeper? I can't tell if it's broken or if it's just an accurate simulation of Will Grigg but I don't think I scored 1 in my whole first season.

Strikers were pretty poor at converting them on 19 as well.

My strikers are just crap in general. Grigg hasn’t scored yet.Wyke and McNulty have about 1 each and Connolly has 2. I’m selling Wyke and have put Grigg up for sale.

Grigg ended up top scorer in the league for me despite missing every single 1v1.
