  1. I'm playing 4-2-3-1 as well! Got Frederico fazio on my first season for 500k and Kadlec for 3.7M both are doing great!
  2. eriksen ofcourse... Bonevacia and Buoy look like possible prospects on the long run
  3. As mentioned before; Stekelenburg will be upped a little in the next patch. But let's keep the b*tching about player attributes wher it belongs: in the data issues thread Trying to keep a positive vibe going here...
  4. Keep in mind that keepers usually don't reach their peak till their early 30s so I think he's still got some room to grow, but i agree that the researchers havn't been very generous on his behalf. As with Urby, I agree his sliding tackles are of the chain, but when it comes to standing tackles i don't think he's a real hero. so that's a difficult one. I don't now how exactly the match engine interperts this en wich other attributes might be involved here... Maybe sombody else knows something about that?
  5. dutch reasearcher just confirmed Steek was a slip up. Positioning is upped to 15 and he dropped it a bit for some nobodys. Unfortunately it wont be fixed till the 2nd patch.
  6. Shouldn't be to much of a problem. Especially with the new Dinamyc League Reputation. Palethinboy managed to get Lukaku, good enough?
  7. There he is . I waited for 11.1 to see if they changed anything regarding his contract. Unfortunately he's still on a rediculous 130k a week :-s
  8. Got him to stay offering a new contract first day on the job: 155k a month. set a 30M asking price and had a very nervous talk with the lad. After I told him I wanted the club to match his ambitions he told met he'd stay. Big sigh of relief
  9. Stekelenburg maybe slightly underrated. especially his positioning is really low, i counted 50(!) keepers in the eredivisie alone with a higher positioning attribute. Already asked dutch researcher bout that, havn't heard back yet though. Suarez Looks little underrated but preformes really wel for me 7.4 average scoring assists the whole deal.
  10. Thanks for the feedback. It's still a bit of a work in progress. Want to add a couple a little things and update everything once I get my 11.1 on tomorow
  11. All the way back to size 5 weird, now it's kind of small. Thanks!
  12. Ajax thread is up http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php/233734-FM11-Official-AFC-Ajax-thread-Let-s-get-that-third-star! Only litle problem with te header, but cant seem to get it right any tips anyone?
  13. Midfielders Demy de Zeeuw Dutch international and all-round midfielder. Plays well in a holding role but could even be played behind the striker(s) if necessary. Should be one of the first names on your team-sheet. Rasmus Lindgren Decent midfielder, will do as a substitute for de Zeeuw. Teemu Tainio Finnish midfielder came over from Sunderland. Eyong Enoh Good strong midfielder. Has a great tackle but lacks creativity. Works great as a ball-winning midfielder or anchor man. Does have a tendency to collect a lot of bookings. Mitchell Donald Hampered by injuries this 21-year old natural right midfielder has been in the first team for a couple of years. Can also play in a central role. Probably not good enough but I suggest making him available for loan and see in a year. Marvin Zegelaar Again not first team material but a decent left winger. Also a candidate for the ‘available for loan’ list. Christian Eriksen One of the most exiting prospects in the game today. This attacking midfielder has the potential to become a really good player. Suggestion: retrain him to a left winger on my save he’s killing as an inside forward. Nicolas Lodeiro Talented AMC. Hasn’t been able to break into the first team yet and the recent development of Eriksen and de Jong won’t make it any easier. Siem de Jong Balanced all-round midfielder. Plays best as attacking midfielder . Good young player with potential. He’s my first choice AMC for now. Midfielders Summary You’re okay in the centre of the pitch but lack great wingers (Suarez and Sulejmani could play there as well), so depending on you’re tactics go look for some decent wingers. Attackers Luis Suarez First name on the team sheet. This is your star player: scoring, dribbling, creating, he does it all. Will do well on the wings and great as a striker. Miralem Sulejmani Decent young winger/attacker. Came with a huge price tag and hasn’t lived up to the hype yet. Due to the lack of good wingers you might want to keep him around, but his £135k wage makes it very tempting to see who’s interested. Mounir el Hamdaoui Technically gifted striker. Apart from Suarez the best you’ve got and he has what it takes to perform both nationally and in Europe. Suk Decent Korean youngster. Not quite first tem material yet, but with potential according to your assistant manager Mido Journeyman Striker. Get's paid a mach to mach base irl but is on a 130k a month wage in the game. I suggest getting rid of him asap.
  14. Squad Review Goalkeepers Maarten Stekelenburg No question about it: this is your number one! Undisputed keeper of the national team and most experienced player in your squad. Kenneth Vermeer Good backup keeper, but the question is if you can keep him around on a back-up player squad status. Also, if you don’t like tiny keepers: get rid of the dwarf. Jeroen Verhoeven The joke of the team. This 99 kilo heavy attempt at a goalkeeper is certainly not fit for this level of competition. Goalkeeper summary You should be okay in this area, but keep the thought of getting a backup keeper in the back of your head. Centre Backs Jan Verthongen By far the best centre back you’ve got. I suggest renegotiating a new contract immediately since he appears to be very wanted (especially by Man U). Toby Alderweireld Good young ball-playing centre back. Lacks a bit in defensive skills but has a killer pass and according to your assistant quite some room for improvent. Oleguer Could serve as back-up but due to lack of anticipation and quickness I suggest placing him on the transfer list. Andre Ooijer Experienced defender. Bit over the hill and not quite good enough for the first team anymore. Since you just got him this season and he is on a one year contract, I’d keep him around (maybe for tutoring?) and let him leave on a free transfer at the end of the season Centre Back Summary Vertonghen is clearly up for the challenge, Alderweireld maybe just not there yet. I’d look for a strong destroyer type defender next to Vertonghen. (on My game I got Frederico Fazio from Sevilla for just €500k) Full Backs Gregory van der Wiel Your first choice for the right back position. This guy is one of the most promising full backs in the world today. Dutch international with good all-round stats. Daley Blind Son of your Assistant Manager this guy is a natural central midfielder but could with the right training become a very usable back-up for the spot on the right side of your defense. Vernon Anita Also a natural midfielder who’s recently been playing on left back irl. Decent full back. Timothee Atouba Although he has some strong points in the game irl he’s one of the worst signings in recent years. Personally I can’t stand the guy so I would put him on the transfer list especially since Emanuelson will do just fine in FM. Urby Emanuelson Great all-round footballer. Natural left winger but will absolutely do as left back in FM. I’d say first choice for LB. Full Back Summary Overall you’ve got to good first choice full backs in van der Wiel and Emanuelson. Anita and Blind will do as back-up for now.

And that’s not only because of the many trophies the club has won throughout the years (the club is one of the five teams that has earned the right to keep the European Cup and to wear a multiple-winner badge; they won consecutively in 1971–1973. In 1972, they completed the European treble by winning the Dutch Eredivisie, KNVB Cup, and the European Cup; to date, they are the only team to keep the European Cup and accomplish the European treble). After their great run of successes in the seventies playing total football under Rinus Michels, Ajax made their international comeback in the nineties (still picking up national championships and cups left and right along the way). Under the inspiring leadership off Louis van Gaal th club managed to win the UEFA Cup in ‘’93 and played back to back Champions League final in ‘95 and ’96 winnig the first one. Ajax is also well known for playing innovative, attractive, attacking football and for having one of the world’s most highly regarded youth systems. Among players that made it through the system are Word class players like Johan Cruijff, Marco van Basten, Dennis Bergkamp, and in more recent years players like Wesley Sneijder, Nigel de Jong and Rafael van der Vaart. As a matter of fact; I argue that with a team of still active footballers that played for Ajax in recent years you could form (on paper) a potentially champions League winning side. (Might be a fun game to play at home?) Recent Years haven’t been really kind on the Ajax fans with PSV dominating the Eredivisie AZ and FC Twente winning it on the last two occasions. Missing out on the Champions League as well after numerous attempts has the supporters screaming for silverware. After finishing second with a record amount of points this year has to be it! Can you bring back the glory days to Amsterdam?
