    I swore there was something that was included in game, but was optional but maybe I'm mistaken! Looking back, it's quite strange that they were so against Covid but happy to include Brexit. Especially in the earlier days when no one actually knew what effect it would have on football.

    Didn't they make Brexit an optional thing when it was first released post vote? It would've been interesting if they did do a Covid database that was optional. It would be an interesting challenge to have some Covid restrictions put on your save, but if it was forced, it would just be an absolute pain.

    The prolonged period at the start was a bit shit, but you can of course choose to start at a later date. My reasoning for not doing so was not wanting to miss out on the free agents (assuming the best of them would've been snapped up by the time of a late start). Other than that, I'm quite content. The only thing really that different would've been omitting fans from stadiums, but that would've been shite, particularly up here. I think if they included players having to self isolate etc. on a random basis, it would've just been ridiculously frustrating. Miles from SI said that while they want to keep the game as true to life as possible, it's also meant as an escape from reality and that making this situation 'too real' would just piss many off. I'm sure it won't be long until someone on the forums adds a modded database that reflects real life if that's what people want, but I'm quite happy to have it realtively normal. In fact, I'd prefer they just left the Scottish leagues at 36 matches, buy hey ho.

    Has anyone managed to give anyone a pumping yet? I can't really complain, because I'm not losing games at all on my Hearts save, but I'm never really convincingly beating teams either. I easily go 2 up, and then have to defend like **** to hang on for 3 points because they always get a goal back.

    Brilliant. Wighton has been injured for most of my season so far. Thankfully I have Klimala on loan from Celtic or I'd be very lightweight up front. I've not even started planning for the Premiership yet, albeit I still have 11 games to play. Hopefully winning the League Cup could see a nice boost to my transfer budgets for next season.

    I started one unemployed today and got a job interview at Hamilton midway through season one, and they only had £20k.

    Same happened to me with Boyce midway through my season. Can't remember the exact injury, but out for upto 9 months. Did you try and go for Ginnelly on a permanent deal? I opened pre-contract talks with him as soon as it was possible, and Hibs even came in for him too. Was confident of getting him in, but Preston gave him a new deal. Gutted.

    16 games into the Championship season with Hearts, and yet to lose. 13 wins and 3 draws so far. In to the Betfred Cup final where Motherwell await, and into the last 16 of the Scottish Cup too. Celtic seem to be a lot weaker this year if my Hearts save is anything to go by. Out both cups (They lost to Hibs at home at the first hurdle in the Scottish) and not top of the Premiership. Rangers are top, but out the League Cup too, so maybe a decent season to have some league success with other clubs.

    He's ridiculous in FM20. Often ends up on loan at Hibs on it. On my Hearts FM20 save he scored in every derby, sometimes twice. Hope he's as useful for me on this one.

    @SGMilne not sure if this is really your bag mate, but I've made a wee observation of Hearts player ratings. Most if not all, seem spot on, but Scott McGill, who's been getting game time IRL, isn't very highly rated at all, and is considerably worse than other youth prospects who haven't played in the first team.

    Didn't have much budget at Hearts either but it is realistic in fairness. Sold Damour and loaned out Frear to get a wee bit off the wage bill. Tried to bin White but no **** wants him. Brought in Patryk Klimala on loan from Celtic as back up to Boyce and he scored a hat trick against Cowdenbeath in the Betfred Cup on his debut. Still really enjoying it so far. 2 from 2 in the Betfred.

    It is nippy. Every game there's a comment 'starting <insert player> is an awful decision. Every ****ing game.

    Can't wait to see how rapid Touch is when that's out.

    In fairness, they released a statement discussing how Covid related issues IRL would be reflected in the game. One of them was the financial affect it's had on clubs. Namely, players who aren't at the top level of the game will lose quite a bit of value in season 1, although come season 2, things should get back to normal. You might find if you are trying to sell players too, it's harder in season 1 and that you'll get more loan to buy offers than normal.

    I picked a large database at the start with 16,000 players. Miles put something up on his Twitter the other day and compared it with FM20. Can't remember the numbers, but 21 was apparently designed to be much quicker.
