With Euro 2020 finally kicking off today, I ran an experiment to see how Football Manager 2021 sees the tournament playing out. To warn you, there are some pretty drastic results...
English football has long-maligned players that ply their trade abroad. For whatever reason, we're more than happy for leading players from other countries to come to the Premier League, but if our players do the reverse then they're immediately treated with scepticism.

Leeds United had reached heady heights heading into the 2024/25 campaign, with our Euro Cup success leading us into the Champions League and a +£300 million transfer budget at our disposal.
