Whenever I get a new FM I start the season as Town with the players we already have, never make any summer signings. I like to use the actual real life squad that the manager has, I have my usual tactics and setup that have worked well over the years and I can't remember the last time I've fired up a new FM season and not got promoted in my first season going back to 2006 at least. This time I'm in a serious relegation battle, 4th from bottom in February one point above the drop zone.
