Dear All,

here my first FM19 career....i check a lot of team, but the real best i can choose is Blackburn.
In first, sorry for my "scolastic" english, hoping you can understand well all...

Why ROVERS???
Because Rovers born in 1875...a story of 143 years, and only 3 championship titles (2 are 1912 and 1914, the last was of 1995, already PREMIER LEAGUE, with the 34 goals of ALAN SHEARER).....we need to come back in PREMIER, and we wanna WIN THIS LEAGUE.
Media says that we are 18th team of Championship....but i don't think so!!!!!!

SO...I'M HERE!!!!

View attachment 30705


MARKET!!!!!

First little problem....when i select Rovers, i start my career without an idea, so i take control of team only 9th of July, when some players will be buyed ...so, good for me, but please look my real market only from 9th of july!!!
Here complete table:

AUGUST

Let's start with bad news and good news....

View attachment 30665

Good news, play is great, we dominate all the matches, we're a young team BUT with a lot of personality!
Bad news, we're out from Carabao Cup.....we made a lot of turnover and last minutes we let Coventry score, reach penalties and we made an error more....

Here all the matches:

View attachment 30664 View attachment 30662 View attachment 30661 View attachment 30660 View attachment 30659 View attachment 30658

Work really good the play, a lot of assist from midfield, where Tonali is really great! Nyambe is the TOP SCORER (incredible...a DC)...
Defense is great, only 2 goals, but arrive at minute 88 and minute 89, so bad mentality and we have to work for increase this!

This is the LEAGUE TABLE

View attachment 30656

Aston Villa at the moment is really the best team, but we are really near!!! In down of table, Ipswich and Hull really really bad!!!

And now, SEPTEMBER!!

View attachment 30655

Really hard matches with ASTON VILLA, DERBY and STOKE......so, GO ROVERS!!!!!

Incredible, i loose the only match i think was really easy!!! But also Aston Villa loose with Bristol City, so they are strong in home matches!!!!
Then, with Aston Villa, Armstrong miss the penalty (out), Kodjia also (goalkeeper) but score...and we have a 3-3 who can be important....
Derby and Stoke, away, are 2 great victories!!! Didn't take goal, we score and control!!!
Last is with Forest....really good team....i think to draw, BUT....now we can also score late than 90!!! 90+5 and 90+8....yeah!!!

Here all the matches

LEAGUE TABLE

View attachment 30607

Really good the first place, also best attack....but 8 team in 5 points, too short!!!! We hope in next matches for try to put more point from me to 4th place!!!

And now, OCTOBER!!!

View attachment 30606

Really strange month, 2 matches very near, then 15 days stop, then 3 matches in one week....
Only Bolton can be easy, other matches are dangerous...WBA and SWANSEA can be two serious problems!!!

View attachment 30528

Of course when you are in first places of table all is ok, and also you didn't loose...but a lot of goals in last minutes....
Very happy to find a player like Palmer (Chelsea loan) who help us in 2 matches, but we loose for injuries Marin for 20 days and Williams (left defender) for 6 months....we also attack a lot but didn't score so much....probably in January i need to find a good PC...

Here all the matches....

January was GREAT, all win, Dragus is really a great scorer!!! In February we made a little stop, 2 win and 3 draw....not bad BUT with all the opportunity we have, scoring is hard and take is easy...we need to change something...
In FA CUP we reach 5th round, but we loose with BOLTON...a lot of turnover is bad, so bad....

View attachment 30125

We win championship, we're young, we're exited....so we completely destroy BOLTON! ahahaha

VS NORWICH

View attachment 30124

Another great match of my team, and all players now ask more money...but if they play like this year, i can increase salary every year without problems...ahahaha

VS SWANSEA

View attachment 30123

A great ending of season, we beat Swansea (and they come out of Playoff)

LEAGUE TABLE:

View attachment 30122

YEAH, POINT 3 has reached, 103 points!!!! Also best attack, but defense is 43 goals against, one more of Forrest...F**K!

And also really important to know that also my young team, U18 and U23, will have a really good way!! U18 Win Championship and FA CUP, U23 have a really good table!!

View attachment 30121 View attachment 30119 View attachment 30118

And here, FINAL STATS:

View attachment 30120

As you can see, all the people score good and play goos, we create a lot!!

If i look all the season, best players are:

LEWIS TRAVIS, really amazing! A lot of OCR and ASSISTS!
RYAN NYAMBE, 11 goals...is really a DC????
BEN BRERETON, my topscorer! 16 goals, but a lot of matches like RIGHT WINGER!
PELAYO MORILLA , SANDRO TONALI and ANTONIO MARIN, younger but really amazing! And they can only increase!!!

A particular word for XADAS and DENIS DRAGUS: they made only 6 months, they score a lot, they give a lot of assists....what can happened in a full season????

Thank you to all, see you in PREMIER LEAGUE 2019-2020!!!

SECOND SEASON: PREMIER LEAGUE 2019-2020

MARKET

Last year was great, and i think that all the followers of this career already understand what i search in new players:need to be YOUNG and STRONG (and, if is possible, cheap! ahaha )

BLACKBURN give me 38M, their problem is that i pay every time part now and part in next years, so become almost the double....but if they need to stay in PL they need to spend, also because SUSO and CHIESA come in PL and championship is really really hard!!!

BTW, HERE MY NEW PLAYERS:

View attachment 30011
DAEL FRY, DC, very tall, can help us very much!!!

View attachment 30010
SVETOZAR MARKOVIC: The player that all the teams need to buy (if you can, first year, you pay really cheap price and salary...), really strong DC

View attachment 30009
LUCA PELLEGRINI: From Roma, we take this great LEFT-BACK, one of my favourite in real life (the best is FEDERICO DIMARCO, but not easy to buy from INTER)

View attachment 30008
DANILO CATALDI: Like LINECOIGNE1998 says, is really great!!I see in him career and is also really cheap!!So, we buy it!!!

View attachment 30007
NICOLO' ZANIOLO: But like MC, the future is here! Zaniolo, young, tall, and can made a lot of OCR!

View attachment 30006
FRANCISCO TRINCAO: Right/Left winger, gemini of XADAS, so cheap but really good!!!!

View attachment 30005
ELLERY BALCOMBE: Young Goalkeeper, can play in FA CUP and CARABAO CUP

View attachment 30004
BRENNER: Last buy. We give ARMSTRONG in loan so we need another Forward, young and cheap, who don't need to play every time in first 11....so, perfect profile is this Brazilian player!

Now we sell some DC, because we've 3/4 player more than i need for have a good season...and last season give to my players high valutation...

View attachment 30000

(F**K Inter, Wolves offer 43,5M but Lenihan prefer go to Italy....amazing quotation for Williams and Downing, England teams have really a lot of money)


Here FULL TEAM, as you can see really young team!
