I'm playing with the team updates from FM Inside that released on the 26th of July. I picked ManUtd so I'll have Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James available. How ever I do not own Maguire yet so to keep it real I'll buy him in the winter transfer period. Also I turned the first summer transfer window off to keep the teams as updated as possible at the time for at least the first half of the season. Lukaku is still part of the team but since he joined Inter Milan an hou ago I'll let him move Immediatly when I get an transfer offer.

I'm not an expert so if you have any advice, feel free to give it to me.

Pre season went well, I got everybody up to good fitness levels and most players were okay in match rythm. only lost 1 game and won the rest.

I went into the last week of pre season with a nice feeling, but than the worst thing happenend. Martial got injured for 3 months. now i had to rethink my strategy for the first game (Against Liverpool).

I play 4-2-3-1 wide. De Gea on goal, shaw Jones Bailly W-B at the back, McTominay and Garnerd on defensive midfield, Rashford Mata and James on the attack with Lukaku in front of them. Pogba had no match rythm, he only came back a few days early until the game so I decided not to play him.

Everything went okay until the 83th minute when Jones caused a penalty which went in. I lost 1-0.

the next 4 weeks I managed to pull it together and win all my games. however they were small victories, so I clearly lack in Goals Scored. only conceding 2.

Now The Europa League started and i had to play against Torino, Krasnodar and Slovan bratislava.
in order to give some key players rest (Lindelof, Pogba, Lukaku) this made me lose the torino game.

I'll update you later today because I'm going to eat :)
Goodluck with this. Shame about the team though :)
