    If someone has the time, would they mind possibly uploading screenshots of the Celtic team? Be interested to see attributes for our players!
    Also, what are budgets/ finances like?

    Will check it out. I usually leave overall team training to my Assistant, but look after the individual training myself, changing it every 2 months for each player

    Starting budget was £4.5m, I then got this raised to £41m in December after reaching the CL.

    Bank balance starts at like £80-90m, crazy

    Champions League makes a big difference,

    Start with the £4.5 as LM says, but I only made it to the Europa, I had made £6million before December, the board added another 12mil to take it to 18mill for January window.

    I'll be booting it up in a moment, Andy players in particular?
    Pre warning, they wil he 8 months in to the first season (not massively different from start game).

    Connell and Turnbull are progressing well, though I don't think Connell is going to be able to cement that spot long term.
    Frimpong comes good second half the season.
    Dembele and Mikey are doing OKAY on loan, Dembele is likely to be loaned back out, Mikey not sure.

    Shved looks like you could play him as a squad player and get a few million out of, but likely no better than previous games.
    Henderson looks meh, Robertson looks like he could be coached.

    First season complete, went pretty well . . .

    Brilliant in the league, only losing at home to Aberdeen. Won all 6 old firm games, including 2 cup finals.

    The biggest achievement was winning the Europa League, beating Benfica, AZ, Real Madrid, Granada in the knockouts, before a surprise win against Arsenal in the final. Particularly happy with that given Eddy and Frimpong were unavailable due to Euro U21s! Patson Daka the hero with a double in the final.

    Some great performers this season, only the keepers with ratings below 7 (they seemed to have reduced the keeper match ratings this year):

    Aye he was class for me last year so had to buy him again.

    I think the Beta is on the easy side to be fair, seems to be the general consensus from reading FM forums etc. Not sure I should be beating Benfica 7-1 and winning 3-1 in the Bernabau in any season never mind the first! Would expect them to make some tweaks to make the game harder on full release next week.

    Had a similar issue with the EL final as well @LM67
    5 key players out due to the Euros, wonder if this is going to be an issue come IRL?

    Won the EL as well, but domestically I scuffed it big time.
    Onwards to the next season, where the 17 foreigner rule doesn't look too harsh, till you realise every one needs a * work permit of at least 30% international appearances. Even trying to sign an AssMan needs a work permit, not sure what the appeal is on that if he fails!

    Second season Summer transfer window done.

    Ins:

    Jerome Onguene - Salzburg - £12.5m
    Almamy Toure - Frankfurt - £9.5m
    Victor Tsygankov - Dynamo Kyiv - £10m

    Outs:

    Vasilis Barkas - Derby - £2.8m
    Boli Bolingoli - Betis - £3m
    Vakoun Bayo - Young Boys - £2.5m
    Christopher Jullien - Newcastle - £6m
    Hatem Abd Elhamed - Al Duhail - £2.8m

    Very happy with the business we’ve done - freshenend up the squad with younger players and added more quality than we had.

    Got Atletico, Roma and Red Star in my CL Group so would hope to progress from that.

    Lost the Super Cup final 1-0 to Inter.

    Just finished my first season on the beta. Did an invincible treble, winning 35 out of 38 in the league. Reached the last 16 of the Champions League. I drew with United 1-1 at Celtic Park and drew 0=--0 away to go out on away goals. So frustrating as I was way ahead on xG over the two legs.

    My transfers have been interesting. First window:

    In:

    Thiago Almada £8.25m
    Roberto Gagliardini loan
    Victor Fischer £1m
    Eric Garcia loan
    Felix Ugarte £2m

    Out:
    Soro loan
    Griffiths £8m
    Klimala loan

    Second window:

    In:

    Arkadiusz Milik £3.7m
    Jorman Campuzano £4.7m
    Olexandr Zinchenko loan

    Out:

    Tom Rogic £6.5m
    Karamoko Dembele loan
    Scott Brown £325k

    I thought getting Milik was jumping the shark but that was realistic compared to what I've picked up in the Bosman market for next season:

    Gianluigi Donnarumma
    Francisco Ortega
    Eric Garcia
    Gonzalo Montiel
    Victor Kovalenko
    Sergio Gomez
    Omer Bayez
    Demari Gray

    Sergio Gomez and Bayez haven't got work permits but I'll retry when they sign and loan them if I can't get them one.

    I preparation for the second season I've added the following:

    Talles Magno £9.75m
    Marcos Leonardo £1.8m

    I normally play about a bit on my beta save but this might be one I continue, I desperately need to reduce the squad size though.

    I#ve also

    Donnarumma wow! Some signing. Much he on a week?

    I tried to get Milik in Jan too but he wouldn’t talk to me - probably cos I had been knocked out the CL in the group stages.

    Also went for Garcia but he ended up going to a bigger club for about half the wage I had offered.

    Full release tomorrow lads.

    Done a season and a bit in the Beta and got to say, some difference and way more enjoyable than recent years. Plenty to do and the more daunting things, such as training, are a lot easier to get to grips with this year.

    Was tempted to order one of those "mystery box" kits this week in preparation to doing a new save, instead I have bought the PSV kit from last year since it was cheap, new save incoming with them.
    Beats trying to work long term in the UK with those work permit issues.

    Just about to update it from Beta. Hoping to miss less penalties now!
