Hello and welcome back to the season 2 blog of my Leeds save, firstly I hope you enjoyed the first installment and are excited for what this post will bring. Some of you may know already if we went up or not if you follow my slack channel however let’s get in to it.
Welcome to our first seasonal post of the Leeds save, if you haven’t checked out the first 2 introduction pieces then please do however let’s get in to the action. As you can possibly tell by the nearly men title, we were so close to a variety of achievements that surpassed my initial expectations but were stopped in our tracks.
With Leeds currently struggling under Thomas Christiansen with 6 losses in their last 7 matches and with lots of people playing the beta for FM18, this is the perfect time to release the 2nd and last introductory post to this Leeds series.
So this is our main and what I intend to be only series I will be covering on FM18, throughout FM17 I had two main saves. Firstly with Union Berlin who are such an interesting club and save, however things didn’t work out in our 2nd season in the Bundesliga and I partly blame myself for not trying to turn it around more, however from there I blogged about my Rangers series which was an enjoyable save reaching 10 seasons and proving very successful.
For the second part of a mini series looking at my Rangers save I thought I’d cover competing with the elite clubs when you’re managing a club in a smaller and poorer league in a financial sense, whether how I’ve done it is sustainable long term and if SI could improve in this regard.
When I started this save and blog, I stated I wanted to build a young side with an average age of 23 or below and throughout the save we achieved that in every season. With any team I manage I always like to feature at least a few players from that nation as I feel it is important but when taking Rangers to bigger heights the standard of player was at times difficult to implement this theory in to practice.
I’d like to introduce you to a few Scottish young newgens you may be familiar with throughout this save that is now approaching 2025.
It’s been a while since I last updated the blog so thanks for your patience, I’ve been loving the save too much to update and some personal circumstances have meant that I needed an escape and the game can be great for that, as can alcohol but I digress.
