Does anyone play football manager games?

Share your city squads/ discuss tactics.

I’m a few years in currently, City firmly in league 1 and 2 good cup runs in recent years. I try to rely on free agents and my youth academy. Currently my first 2023/24 XI is - in 442 -

Ward
Shephard (FGR) - Kilman (Wolves) - Parkes - Sparkes
Gilliead (Scunthorpe) - Butcher (Bournemouth) - Collins - Williams
Smith (Cambridge*) - Simpson (Accrington*)

brackets indicate their current team.
*on loan

On phone, did have a quick search for threads on the matter but didn’t see anything so apologies if this has been done!

Recently started giving FM20 a go again.

Hit on a 4-1-4-1 Attacking wing play formation. Recommend it highly.

Walked Lg2 in season 1 with little in the way of additions, selling Williams, and Bowman scoring for fun. Going to give the same a go in Lg1 next week.

FM22 for me has gone down hill, you can pay to win a game, and for me that's wrong on so many levels. I've not played CM22 yet but I2'm hoping that has not gone down the same route

FM21 I managed B2B promotions with City to the Premiership.
Then at the end of my second season qualified for the lower UEFA cup (Euro 2?).
My last legacy player was Randell Williams who finally got given the boot after playing only once in the last season.
Currently in the closed season before my first assault on Europe.
Tend to play 4-2-3-1 counter attacking.

I've since restarted a game with Exmouth, promoted to Southern League Div 1 at the first attempt and now in 4th at the midway point of the season.
It's difficult to get out of these lower leagues as there tends to be only one promotion place and then a playoff.
