  1. I was given 4.5 mil transfer budget at the start of the 2nd season after promotion. Sold some players and had 9.5mil budget for players and also board decided to upgrade youth facilities for 8.5mil.

    I think 4.5mil transfer budget for newly promoted side in the Swiss league is quite ok budget to be honest.

    I bought and loaned in almost entire new first 11 for the 2nd season. Loaned Chong, Garner and Levitt from ManUtd. Bought Martins from Young Boys for 4mil, Pusic from Grashoppers for 950k, Blas Riveros from Basel for 2mil, Jan Kronig from Young Boys for 250k, Patrick Burner from Nice on free, Ignace van der Brempt from Brugge for 2.5mil and Benjamin Uphoff from Karlsruher for 150k.

  2. Welcome to the FC Lausanne-Sport thread

    Club Details

    Status: Professional

    Reputation: National

    Nickname: Les bleu et blanc

    Founded: 1896

    Owners: Ineos (private limited company)

    Stadium: Olympique de la Pontaise (due to move to Stade de la Tuliere /12000 all seater/ for the start of 20/21 season)

    Capacity: 15 850


    FC Lausanne-Sport is a Swiss football club based in Lausanne in the canton of Vaud. Founded in 1896, it plays in the Swiss Challenge League, the second highest league in the country. The team has won seven league titles and the Swiss Cup nine times.

    On 13 November 2017, the club was acquired by Ineos, a Swiss-based British petrochemicals company owned by Jim Ratcliffe, the nation's wealthiest person. (yes, a sugar daddy!)




    Thomas Castella – best keeper in the club. Will be your first choice keeper for the season.

    Mory Diaw – Reserve keeper at best. Not very good.

    Dany Da Silva – Third choice keeper.

    *overall Castella can get you through the season but you should look to upgrade the position ASAP, especially if promoted to the SuperLeague



    Elton Monteiro – capable centre back, should be a first team player

    Noah Loosli – one of the best players in the club, first choice

    Igor Nganga – reserve centre back with no future at the club beyond the 1st season

    Ange Nanizayamo – shouzld be 3rd choice centre back, not really good mentals but can do the job at this level of competition


    Right backs:

    Nikola Boranijašević – good player, first option at RB

    Sinclair Baddy Dega – not good, young but not really a great prospect for me. Should look to upgrade ASAP

    Left backs:

    Per Egil Flo – first choice left back, one of the club's better players

    Nicolas Getaz – capable cover for the position

    *overall you have two good centre backs in Loosli and Monteiro, Nanizayamo can cover in the 1st season, I would look to bring another good CB at the end of the season or even in the winter transfer window. Right back is a top priority because you only have Boranijašević and his cover is not good enough. Left back position is good with Flo and Getaz.



    Stjepan Kukuruzovic – great midfielder, can play both DM and CM positions, playmaker but can be used in other roles as well. First choice midfielder.

    Joel Geissmann – Another good CM who can play B2B or even more offensive role.

    Maxime Dominguez – Good offensive minded playmaker most comfortable in AMC position but can also do the job from MC position.

    Cameron Puertas – Depending on your system, you can use him as a B2B midfielder, he is very young and will improve. My opinion is he should be your starter if using three man midfield.

    Gabriel Bares – young DM who is best used as a DLP and has good potential. Should be given game time in the 1st season to improve.

    Cabral – Your typicall BWM or DM. I'd say not good enough beyond the 1st season and since he is in his 30's you shouldn't be playing him and reducing minutes to your younger prospects. Sell him.

    Alexandre Pasche – CM who can do a few roles but ulitmaltely not good enough. Should be sold.

    *overall your centre of midfield is very good, with Kukuruzovic, Geissmann,Dominguez,Puertas and Bares you have different options depending on the set up. Don't need any investement there for the 1st season



    Joao Oliveira – great natural inverted winger and one of your best players. First team choice.

    Josias Lukembila – another quick IW/W, useful player and could improve.

    Christian Schneuwly – one of your older players at 31, but still should be a first choice right winger.

    Isaac Schmidt – speed merchant, good cover for the right wing and could improve.

    Sancidino Silva – another good winger, could be your first choice although I decided for Oliveira/Schneuwly combo but Silva can do a job for you if you desire.

    *overall your wing positions are packed and good quality. Don't need to invest in the 1st season.



    Andi Zeqiri – The best prospect at the club and will develop to be your best players if you give him time. Play him as a starter.

    Aldin Turkes – Another quality striker but is a target man so if you don't like to use TM maybe should look to sell.

    Anthony Koura – Amazing physicals for the level of competition, great back up.

    *overall you have three grat strikers and don't need any investment.


    FC Lausanne is a nice challenge, starting in the 2nd tier of the Swiss league system. You get a nice squad that is more than capable of challenging for the promotion spot which is your minimum requirement. Given the players you have, promotion should be achieved.

    Also, the club has a foreground sugar daddy which will make your time at a club quite interesting. Starting balance is 4.5mil but after a month or so in game you will be injected with 14mil more. So you can upgrade your team immidiately if you play with enabled 1st transfer window. I am not so I will have to wait until January to go shop for talent. 

    Hope you enjoy the save if you choose Lausanne!

  3. I managed to buy Mbappe after all, sent another bid few days before the deadline, 225mil and they accepted. Nice start to the season also, 3 games and 3 goals and 1 assist. :D I play him as IF on the right. Now I have too much AMR/L players..Mbappe,Rashford,Brooks,Martial,James,Sancho. Will have to sell in January. Probably James and Martial.

  4. I didn't manage to get Mbappe. Offered 220mil but all I got in response is "the offer is unacceptable". :D

    So, I brought in only Bruno Fernandes for 46mil which I think is a bargain price for such a quality player. Managed to sell Chong,Jones,Pereira,Fosu Mensah for combined 55mil. Also I got rid of Sanchez who I gave for free to Fenerbahce but I'm still paying half his wages though. I've sent Laird.Williams, Levitt, Mejbri and Omeragic(young CB I brought from Zurich for 12mil) all on loan.

    Now my 1st team squad looks like this:



    2nd choice squad:



    Also part of the squad are Russo(GK), Angel Gomes and James Garner

  5. We lost our CL semis against PSG. 1-0 in Paris and then managed only a 1-1 draw at OT. We were better, I felt we deserved a win at least. The finish to the PL season was a little nightmare, losing against West Brom, scraped a win against Brighton and then fineshed it off with a deafeat at Southampton. It was only a continuation of our ****** form since March in the league where we managed only 5 wins until the end. Very bad. 

    I think I will switch from 4231 to 433 as my primary formation next year. 

    Also we have a budget of 325mil euros to spend. Mbappe is our number one target. Also I'd like a world class CB.

    Add on the previous, how is Maddison shaping up, and has anyone looked into Donny Van De Beek? Thee are my two midfield targets, as I don't sign in the first season. However, in Maddison's case, he looks very similar to last year, and I may find myself better off going for Havertz. 

    Maddison is very good for me.

    Brought in Sancho,took a few games for him to adapt but now he started to be great signing.

    Liverpool run away with the title,it's back to back titles for them. We were in title race with 4 points behind them and going at OT against them in week 29. I opted to go with my started offensive system instead of more cautious one I use in europe amd tough away games and they blasted us 3-0. We never recovered after that and went on a 4 game winless streak in the league.

    In CL we managed to go through Monaco and then in the QF against Barcelona we produced our finest game of the season,overturning 2-1 deficit from Nou Camp with a massive 5-1 victory at OT.

    It's PSG in the semi final now,first leg to be played in Paris.

    Top 4 is secured so we can rest our first team and focus on CL. It will be tough but we have a chance I hope.

    I feel the rebuild is over now,we have a young team full of quality so next transfer window we will only go for one superstar player if there will be one available.

    Penalties, direct free-kicks, taps in after a wide player's had a shot saved?

    Idk man..I don't keep track. He ddid score a couple of pens for sure. But my 2nd scorer is Pogba and 3rd is Maddison. One is MC and other is AMC. So that's 3 top scorers all play through the middle. I'm not saying you are wrong, I'm just saying my centre players are scoring goals.

    Have a look above at the pic I posted, the space Xhaka has there & he pings one out to the fullback. I'm playing Focus through the middle, short passing, slow tempo there too  

    I watch a few Youtubers & the one I notice where the strikers are bagging the majority is playing a 4-4-2 (or a 4-2-4) because they play out pretty well because you get what you expect, play going out wide, crossed into the box, centre mids catch loose balls on the edge of the area   


    I'm playing 4231 and my top scorer is my striker.

  9. Lucas Digne is a beast for me at left back. Cost me only 23mil which is a bargain for him.

    Now I'm not sure wheter to go for Sancho, he has 88mil release clause or do I save money and go for Mbappe in the summer who "wants to move to a bigger club". Pogba doesn't want to sign a new contract so if I sell him there should be enough money to bring Mbappe I hope but not sure if he would consider ManU as bigger club.

    That you are not aware does not make this an overstatement. When most of the talents have important fixed att. at 1-3, the game in the long run will be broken. Imagine all of your talents don't develop like they should. I think no FM player would enjoy this. People are waiting to start games because of this. So yes, you can call this gamebreaking.  

    But my talents are improving very well..I don't see anything wrong with them. Greenwood, Mejbri, Garner, James..all of them are imrpoving rapidly in a good way.

    People should be aware of this attribute bug. It is gamebreaking and game shouldn't be released before it was fixed. 


    I hope they understand this and can come up with a fix today.

    I'm playing my save from the 1st day of beta release and I have no idea what bug you are talking about. So to say it's gamebreaking is a bit of an overstatement.
