    He's been killing it in the SPFL for me. 14 goals and 25 assists in 30 league games.

    I've still got a year left which should get me to the point where he was sold in your game. Loves the club and loves me so hopefully I can make his move permanent at the end of the season.

    Also didn't appreciate how much of an impact Brexit would make. Looks like I'm going to have to re-evaluate my entire transfer strategy, so far I've been targeting getting bigger club castoffs as they become surplus to requirements (Zelalem, Sergi Samper, Wilson) and exploiting cheaper markets like Scandinavia, Switzerland and Portugal. Seems like a lot of those markets will close off because to get a work permit will need players to be internationals.

    I've found in my save its been soft as ****. Max 17 foreigners in the 25, but those already here before Brexit don't count. Its basically no different to the 8 home grown players.

    Also absolutely everyone seems to get a work permit, so I can sign youngsters and loan them out to lower league teams. By the time they are 23 they are getting UK passports and not counting as foreign. In essence it means I only have to worry about the rules for big money oversees signings and the odd kid in the 19-23 bracket I'm bringing through (I'm trying to tie up all my signings young, because **** paying 100m a time on a striker.)

    I think that version of Brexit barely affects the EPL. If I took a job in England I'd have the same lack of restrictions.

    I have to get work permits for non British and Irish players now, and work permits for the SPFL are based on international appearances. I'm trying to sign a young Austrian right back I've spent a bit of time scouting and it's been a nightmare, having to appeal it.

    Just switched to it in my AlbinoLeffe save who I'm in 2021 with and in our 2nd season in Serie A. Won the first game with it 4-2 and in our 2nd match just beat Inter Milan 6-2 with a strikeforce of Francesco Bonfiglio and Lorenzo Sorrentino who I've had since Serie C alongside Eddie Nketiah. It's OP.

    On my current FM Mobile, work permits got abolished after about five years. Scotland and NI also voted to stay in the U.K.

    I've gone back to CM01/02 as its legally downloadable for free and can actually run on an average laptop without taking a week for a month in game.

    Forgotten how simple it used to be, but not unenjoyable, especially with the update so it's got current players.

    No, 2001/02 but all teams are current as if they were the exact right age etc.

    It’s still under 2001/02 rules so work permits and no transfer windows but good fun.

    Decided to bite the bullet and get FM19.

    Might go Arsenal post Wenger or RB Leipzig first up.

    I quite fancy going a hipster Chelsea where I actually play all the young talent they're too scared to give a game.

    Yeah, I should have typed install or play because it's been sitting there for a couple of weeks.

    Wasn't sure whether to carry on my Rangers FM18 save or go with the new game but I'd already got to the boring part domestically when you're 3 seasons in and winning everything.

    Leipzig's squad is amazing, it's pretty much the sort of squad I'd have built if I'd had a Leipzig save in FM16.
