    Has anyone seen good regens come out of the Barca academy on their saves? I'm basing all of my transfer plans on what regens come out.

    Not really, but then I haven't really looked at Barca's academy.

    I saw them get a regen defender from their academy, DRC like Puyol and he was just as good to be honest. His name was Nogeurol or something like that, he was awesome

    Pato is my favorite player IRL and in the game, so I would do almost anything to get him. 20m is a fair price for him, and he's only on 60k wages.

    EDIT: Be Barca, Hershie

    Awful
    Lost to Watford 3-2 a draw would have been a fair result.
    Missed easy chances and Watford missed a pen.
    Good game
    Bad outcome

    8 points behind Forrest now

    That's a shame. Perhaps just do a season review in your own way, making it simple?

    I liked what you did.

    I'll probably do a year one.
    Sum everything up that way because it'll give me something better to do in life than watch pre-seasons

    Ah, so this is where you are all hiding!

    I've decided to put the old Arsenal save on hold for a while and start up a new save in Holland; Sparta Rotterdam to be precise. I have yet to manage in Holland for any length of time in FM10 so better late than never.

    My aims: become the best team in Holland and Europe (this is a given) with a squad that has 90% Dutch players, built around young 19 year old midfielder Kevin Strootman.

    Yannis Tafer is amazing. Loaned him for Newcastle in January (on OTFFMO) and he's scored 7 in his first 2 matches! 4 away at Bolton and amazingly a hattrick at home vs Man City, who were 22 games unbeaten - we stuffed them 4-0.

    Why has this thread been moved out of GD?

    I quite enjoyed the read in GD. So many sub-forums these days

    Signed a Portuguese assistant manager by the name of Ruca. I'm not particularly high up the chain and he's quite a good assistant manager - and he only wants £40 a week!

    Can't really complain.

    On my 2nd season as the Bolton Wanderers manager..... Just been knocked out of the first knock-out stages of the Europa League by Werder Bremen.
    4 days after that, I was in the League Cup final vs. West Ham. Lost 1-0 because of an own-goal.

    Gutted....

    Got Reading away in the FA Cup next match..... I don't even want to think about being knocked out of 3 competitions within the space of 10 days.

    Just moved into the 73,000 capacity Speake Stadium after winning the 19/20 title.

    I'm annoyed that all my players seem to end up at Man City though... I'm like their feeder club

    Trying to work out the bugs in my 4-3-1-2 formation with West Ham, and I definitely need some help

    Green

    Faubert/Behrami Tomkins Upson Ilunga

    Noble Parker Collison

    Diamanti

    Ilan Cole

    That's the line up I'm using, with the front three being 'trequartista' 'DLF' 'Advanced Forward'. Any tips?

    Alright lads

    In 2019 and just noticed Cardiff City are sitting 14th in Coca Cola League Two! That's currently the same league as Bath!

    Anybody else seen some big drops or rises in the leagues?

    And in this run, we've been denied in the 90th minute and looked like a pub team against second.

    We've lost our first game this season and top spot

    I think I did something dumb. I needed a good right winger, one who would be rotation/backup, depending on how my 1st choice 19 year old plays. So I uh bought this kiddo for....oh you know...36M GBP....



    He looked better before I bought him, I swear!

    Hah! I know that feeling. For example when I sell a player I notice all the bad attribute and figure it was a decent deal. Then I look at all the good ones and wonder if I just sold a diamond for a nickel.

    On a similar note, I found a great player I really wanted. His price was 'only' 17.75m. Finally the club came back to me with a price. 137m...

    I think not

    The save I'm playing at the moment is one where I started unemployed. My first club was Panionios in Greece. First season we were predicted to finish 8th and finished 2nd, then earnt ourselves a Europa League place in the play-offs. After half of the next season I resigned and remained unemployed for the remainder of that season. Having struggled to find a new team I took over at recently relegated Middlesbrough and currently in January we're storming the Championship. The club had also ran into some financial difficulties before I arrived and were also taken over. The new Chairman seems keen to resolve the financial problems however and regularly adds an extra 600K or so to the balance. Having managed to get a few players to drop their wages slightly, I'm enjoying life at Boro. It's been an enjoyable save so far and I hope it continues that way

    Ended up winning 7 straight, then also won 7 straight at the end and won the league. Had this tactic for 27 competitive games, won 21, lost 2 and drawn 4. Going pretty good.

    Final score Barnet 6-1 Sheffield Wednesday, utterly ridiculous

    I signed eight players in the summer break of my Bordeaux save. Three were youth prospects, but the overall breakdown was six defenders and two keepers. So I had better concede zero goals in the first six games. That included games against OM and Lyon.

    Then a 4-0 loss to Bayern Munchen in the CL, but that was a fluke. I swear.

    Crap

    I was soooo close to beating Arsenal's PL record of 49 without a loss. We were up to 46. But then I fiddled with tactics a little cause teams kept parking buses in front of goal and I wanted to put more pressure on them. We lost 0-1 at home to Blackburn, having 19 shots to their 3.

    Stuff hit walls.....

    One thing that is increasingly annoying me is the almost machine-like goal the first few minutes of a match. It is absurd how often this happens. And if you happen to concede a goal like this, you can bet the house on chasing the rest of the match, no matter how much more dangerous chances you create. It gets tedious to lose or draw matches when you create a lot more chances than the opposition on a regular basis.

    It was always pretty quiet here before the merger, no one else here seems to feel the need to post quite that much.

    As for the all-nighters, I believe they have a new home.

    So, we are 2-0 up away at Villa when I make a triple substitution in the 79th minute. Villa then pull it back to 2-2 before I get a man sent off.

    Then, in the 90th minute, this happens:

    Free kick is taken from the edge of the box.

    Axier spots the ball coming, unmarked with his back to goal.

    He leaps and connects with an overhead kick.

    He beats the keeper.

    He wins the match in the 90th minute and completes a hattrick

    First time I've seen one of those, and what a way to do it
