The ruination of my marriage. Or how I delved back into Football Manager 2020.

I'm just under halfway through the season. Although I'm doing fine in the league I'm finding the games are a bit of a slog. not dominating play but somehow always outscoring the other team. Hoping I don't hit a mid season slump like you experienced.

Can I just ask how you recalled Bola and Browne from their loans please or did you start with the pre-Jan transfer update?
I just went into their profile, Transfer > Recall from loan. You can only do this if its not a long term loan. Maybe with the update, that has changed.

Hoping I don't hit a mid season slump like you experienced.
Like death and taxes :)

Why am I so bad ffs. I get all my guys with green circles then get stuffed on a regular basis. I can even have 20 shots to the opponents 6 and still lose 3 nil.

Am I woodgate?
I find that I have to sort out the coaching and improve that massively before I start to get anywhere with the players improving. Until then, I found sticking with 4-4-2 and retaining possession helps stem the losses.

Haven't played Football Manager for years but this thread inspired me to download the demo & give it a go.
Unbeaten in pre-season undone by a 3-0 defeat to Luton on opening day.

How do you sign players?
How do you sign decent coaches & assign them?
How do you cut down on the non-football stuff so that you can whizz through the week a bit faster?

Setup your scouting to scout all of Europe, look for youngsters marked for loan with good potential and a reasonable actual ability. With coaching, look at your training and pick one with a low lead coach rating and go hire that coach. Rinse and repeat

I quite like some of the non football stuff, makes it more real because life always has stuff getting in the way :)

Fletcher is having another storming season in the Championship and by the beginning of November has 11 goals in 16 appearances, and the best conversion rate in the league.

So, as it stands at the start of the transfer window

The squad continues to impress. The small squad of a small team in Europe are doing big things. They are grinding out results when not playing well, there is a strong togetherness in the squad.

More news on transfers as they develop.
