[FM19] Taking Scotland!!!!


Recommended Posts

HI There, Im pretty much a novice in the world of fm and i continue to struggle with each version to keep saves for more than a season

i had a career  with Sporting that i started a month ago and wrote about here but i couldnt keep up with the tactical creator and grew frustrated with it. But recently though still culpable to a draw or a loss, i feel comfortable enough to engage in a long term save, so some words of encouragement and some advice from the veterans of the game would be great to be honest. Till then , Here i go.

In Almost the entire history of Scottish football , two teams have been dominating the headlines and championships. Even though the standards have slipped in Scottish football among Europe's Elite , both Celtic and Rangers seem to be content as the front runners in Scotland.

In comes Edinburgh City F.C

A club known as Edinburgh City was first formed in 1928. It participated in the Scottish Football League in the 1930s and 1940s, but went out of business in the 1950s. The present club adopted the Edinburgh City name in 1986. It applied to join the Scottish Football League in 2002 and 2008, but failed to win election. Edinburgh City became members of the new Lowland League in 2013. The club won the Lowland League championship in 2015 and 2016 and won promotion to the Scottish Professional Football League in 2016.

Thats it for now , ill need to analyze the squad for league two in scotland and work through preseason. Hopefully ill update this blog by the end of preseason.

Not really midseason review


This the squad but i have added some youngsters... One thing that caught my eye was that the team was pretty quick



the intial tactic started well but i was frustrated that **** teams kept winning matches which we dominated


ive been trying to make an antifootball tactic ever since i saw the new defensive line opitions

and failed but with this team its brilliant




Using quick counters and good setpieces

finally seems like i can coast this league[ though i might get complacent]






so ill update when the season is over but for now its going well.....

Nice one mate, I will certainly be keeping my eye on this one.

I was looking at starting a save in League 2 with either Cowdenbeath (local side) or Edinburgh. However, still really into my first save as Dunfermline, so may be a while away yet lol. Good luck.
