    LEEDS SHAME

    Leeds United fans, look away now as this article will reveal all that has happened to your club in the past 24 hours.

    Scandals have emerged all over the club, from the boardroom all the way down to the players, and they aren't good.

    Firstly, due to a fraud case, potential owner Massimo Cellini has been forced to opt out of buying Leeds and GFH still own the club.

    Another boardroom court case has found that GFH are guilty of receiving third party-backing from none other than the Iranian government, which has violated not only FA laws, but laws enforced by the UN.

    Brian McDermott has been sacked and banned from football for five ears due to a claim tat he tried to bribe referees on numerous occasions last season.

    And five players have been arrested on suspicion of assault in a Leeds nightclub, no names have been released but Ross McCormack, Jimmy Kebe, Rodolph Austin, Luke Varney and Noel Hunt weren't seen in training today.

    Leeds have a new manager in ex-pro Matthew Hawkins, but his inexperience is more cause for concern, especially with the club millions in debt and in administration.

    The situation in West Yorkshire is pretty bleak.

    Reaction on social media
    @BantamsBoy1998-Hah, lol, dirty Leeds up to their eyeballs in debt, lol #LUFC #inthesh*t

    @Carra23-A poor sight, always enjoyed games v Leeds, hope they get out of this #LUFC

    @becchioluciano-Hopefully Leeds get out of this, good luck to new manager #LUFC


    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Basically what I've done is put Leeds in a poor financial position, in administration, but given them decent facilities


    AIMS
    Stay in Championship
    Promotion to Prem
    Stay up
    Get Europa League
    Get Champions League
    Win cups
    Win Premier League
    Win Champions League
    Have a British starting XI
    Don't spend much
    Have at least 5 home grown players in starting XI

    The Plan
    Season 1-Try to stay up and keep as many players as possible
    Season 2-Mid-table/Push for play-offs
    Season 3-Promotion
    Season 4-Stay up
    Season 5-Consolidate

    After that, I have no idea

  2. That was Quick

    August 1st

    An eventful time at Leeds as two players are sold, the club is bought and the debt is restructured

    Club captain and talisman Ross McCormack was sold to Wigan Athletic for a fraction of his true value as the club needed money, quickly

    ADAM DRURY TO BARNSLEY

    Adam Drury was then sold to Barnsley for pennies

    But on the bright side, we were taken over by a consortium led by former Leeds United striker Noel Whelan

    The debt has also been restructured and I've been given some money to play with

    Shall I sign anyone? I like real power up front and could do with an addition there, there are also bids lined up for some of our players, what shall I do?

    Haha, The club looks like it's in better financial position than it starts with in game by default. You got luck mate

    Aim for 2-3 yers in the Championship so you can build a strong core otherwise all your work will be undone if ye get relegated form the Premiership and half the squad demands to leave.

    Thanks for the reply, I think the 2-3 years thing is a good idea as the Leeds squad is a strange one, it has a few older players who are close to retirement and a few youngsters who need to develop with no middle ground

    And I agree, I got very lucky, I hardly ever get decent takeovers in FM, this is the first time they've put money in

    However I did put in a few extra debt when I made the file which means they'll have to be paid off as well

  5. sign velios and mcaleney(AML) both from everton..i got both on loan and they got 30 goals between them as i got leeds promoted in teh 1st season..as i leeds fan i will read with interest

  6. Wow, I don't think I've ever heard of anyone using the editor to GIVE themselves debt.
    But regardless, good luck to you!
    If you want, you can add me on Steam, so I can have someone to chat with while I FM too. xD

    Thanks for the replies, I'll consider Vellios, but I'm aiming for British players and Matt Smith has started well for me

  8. British players Jesse lingard, Shane ferguson, will keane, john souttar,Stuart Armstrong, lee Wallace

  9. I've decided to invest the money I was given on a few youngsters and a big name striker to replace McCormack

    A perfect start to my career in management as we beat Brighton 2-0 at home, thanks to goal from an unlikely source in Tom Lees and a slightly more proven goalscorer, Noel Hunt.

    A routine win over League 2 Scunthorpe in the League Cup, Matt Smith and El-Hadji Diouf could have won the game on their own with their top quality performances, Aidan White also impressed

    I must admit, I was worried that Fleetwood would beat us when we were drawing 0-0 at the break but goals from new signings Kirk Broadfoot and Simon Cox sandwiched Luke Murphys tap in

    Neither side could break the deadlock in this game as both lacked the creative spark of an attacking player, QPR came for a draw and got one

    Was signed to replace Rodolph Austin, but a £3,000,000 deal with West Ham fell through at the last second, regardless a top quality prospect has joned the ranks here in Leeds

    The only wingers we have are an ageing Jimmy Kebe and El-Hadji Diouf, so I signed young Welshman Lloyd Isgrove from Southampton to offer some competition

    REVIEW-Overall a good transfer window where we signed a few players who will definitely play for their respective national teams in the future
