Well-Known Member
Hi there!

I decided to start a new career in FM19, but this time it Salford City!
Salford City is in Vanarama National League (fifth-highest of the overall English football league)
Salford City

Location - Salford, UK
Stadium Capacity - 5,106

17051


Team Depth

17052

17053

Note - As you see, I don't have much depth at D(L) & D(R). Need to improve there.


Tactics

I am using 4-2-3-1 wide formation.​

17054

Below are my gameplay in FM19.



note - next time I'll add music.:)

Pre-season 2019-2020

New deal!

17112

Roster Update
  • The Board gave me an 80k transfer budget (used to be 70K, but I talk the board giving me more money!). There not much I can do with 80k.
  • I'll be looking into players whose contract is expired (or their contract end on June 30)
  • I'll also be looking into players who are on U23 team (Premier Division 1 and 2). Loan possible.
  • During the 2018-2019 season, I carry over 30 players on my roster. I'll be looking to cut down my roster to 20-23 players.
I resigned Dexter Blackstock. He brings great depth to my team.

17113

Signed Oscar Borg (last team - Braintree Town) on FA. His potential is very high.

17115

Signed Jacob Fletcher (last team - Maidenhead United) on FA. He is just 18, but his potential is very high. So he will be on my U18 team for now.

17116

More Roster update

Signed George Tanner (last team - MANU U23) on FA. He is just 19, but he already pretty good! Will be starting.

17144

Signed Josh Bohui (last team - MANU U23). He is just 20. He will add great depth to the team.

17145

Signed Tyrell Warren (last team - MANU 23). He is just 20. He will be starting.

17146

Signed Ethan Hamilton (last team - Rochdale - loan (MANU). He is just 20. He will bring great depth to the team.

17147

Loan - Daniel Trickett-Smith (Port Vale). He is 24.

17148


Sold Matt Green to Doncaster Rovers. He had a pretty good year for me, but I thought it would be best to sell him.

17149

Brought Michael Kightly from Southend United. He will replace Matt Green.

17150

Signed Callum Kennedy (last team - Billericay Town) on FA. He is 29.

17151

This kid from Australia maybe my best move of all. Signed him from Tottenham U23) on FA. He will be great for me.

17152

Conclusion:
Brought in 11 new players.
Team avg age - 26.
