Just out of curiosity , I was wondering what everyone else did first when they start a new game.

Personally , I read through all the messages , then take a look at my Team Report.
After this I start to look through my players and try to decide what tactics/player roles will suit my squad.
I usually don't start signing/selling until I have found a tactic.

What about you?

What benefit does signing players add if you don't have a tactic?

But, yes, I do the same as you.

1. Clean the staff. Only the best are allowed to work with the best (me (H))
2. Clean the squad. The s**** players are thrown away
3. Clean scheduled friendlies. And then re-schedule them with the teams I want

I also release all reserve players who just aren't good enough for the first team squad , it's remarkable how much wages it free's up.

Set up my usual tactic, normally Wingers, CDM and CM.. Loan out my Youth prospects, Match preparation, organise friendlies, strengthen all aspects of the team, win trophies.

This is what I do as well. I also do boardroom requests though. Youth Facilities, Feeder/Parent Club and Percentage of Transfer Revenue.
