I have a tendency to play long-running games, and there's not an infinite amount of time to do so (sob), so skipping years works out for me - done it twice now. I do want the load leagues later thing: I've been burned more than once by not having the right stuff loaded from the start. One long running game I had no idea it would be and thought the "short game" would run better if things weren't fully loaded up. And indeed, even lightly loaded, once the career got >10 years, it was interminably slow anyway. a newer pc - bought for other reasons, honest! - helped, but then it slowed down again. In another I apparently just made a mistake, thought I had loaded certain stuff, then got an offer in Germany and have been irritated that the leagues below the Bundesliga aren't playing, so the availability of local players is hard to judge - and worse, I don't get details of our own U23 team which plays in a lower league. So that's a killer feature for me...
