  1. Davie Selkie - signed him for Southampton in first window. As at 1 Feb 2020 he has 17 goals in 22 appearances. Blows a little hot and cold but when he is scoring he is brilliant! Played him as a TM in a 442 and CF(S) latterly in a 4141(41221).
  2. I only managed to loan Vestergaard - 17m is great business! Have kept Long (I like his workmate when defending a lead). I have both Almada and Onguene extensively scouted but am determined to stay in the black financially, if I can get Almada for that price then all well and good but Onguene will have to wait until the summer. Danso has been excellent and I will almost certainly trigger the option in the loan contract. I also have Haaland on my radar but not on any shortlist.... I play my wingers in the midfield strata - it seems to work ok but none of Redmond, Boufal or Djenepo are great defensively.... its a work in progress! As regards the rest of the squad, JW-P has been excellent (7.61 av rating - 6 goals, 10 assists playing as the Mezzala) and is the subject of interest from Spurs. Its end Jan 2020 in my save. Hojberg and Redmond have also played consistently well and since I recalled him from loan - so had Stuart Armstrong. I don't think the squad needs major surgery - the board vision makes life a little more challenging but I quite like that (and tbh have played Fm that way for a while now as regards signing younger players) - priorities in the summer are on the flanks and adding some pace to the back line - those balls over the top are a killer!! I will tray and post a longer update with screenshots (when I can figure out/remember how to do that) over the next day or so. I keep thinking about starting a Saints thread....
  3. I will try and post a longer update this week but just wanted to ask a couple of questions as I am also managing the Saints (my hometown club - only side I play with on FM 😁) 1. Did you sign Almada and Onguene in the 1st window? How much did you pay? 2. Danny Ings - does he blow hot and cold for you. I signed Davie Selkie in the 1st window as I had an idea to play a 442 with a TM. He has 16 goals in 21 appearances. Ings has 5 in 15 by comparison. I am currently experimenting with Wingers in this tactic. 9 goals scored in the last 3 games... 4-4 draw with Spurs suggests I might have some more work to defensively, I have a WB (Att) at LFB and I he keeps getting caught out positionally with diagonal balls from their left wing or midfield.
  4. When I look at Position suitability for an AM (L) the circle for Inverted Winger is fully Green. Exactly same attributes for same role as M (L) and yet the circle is now 1/2 orange and rating is unconvincing.... Why? And should I ignore it?
  5. Amazing post! Has given me some real food for thought. Well done!!
  6. I have a homesick player who I have agreed to give a leave of absence to - can't see the option to do this anywhere though... Any ideas?
  7. Can anyone advise why Training progress reports on an individual default to one of the coaches (in my case a Goalkeeping coach) forcing me to select a different coach very time - and when I change it it doesn't retain the selection I previously made? Thanks
  8. Thanks - aware of all the information but I don't see a team thread where people are discussing their saves.
  9. My 1st post updated with images. I will continue to update this as the save progresses. Have always been a little amazed there wasn't a team thread created. Might have a go at that as well over the weekend.
  10. How do I just choose the image then - like you have!?
  11. I am inserting the links from Imgur but they aren't working. I must be doing something wrong!
  12. I have had a number of saves with Leicester - mostly playing around with transfers but also numerous iterations of a 442. I am a big believer in KISS (Keep it Simple Stupid) so this is what I currently have No Team Instructions! I have Player Instructions on the Goalkeeper - Distribute to Flanks and Distribute Quickly. I watch matches in Extended for the 1st 15-20 minutes and then Comprehensive. Results so far have been quite pleasing, bar the loss to Bournemouth where Morgan/Huth couldn't cope with Iturbe and I should have dropped the defensive line a bit deeper sooner. Vardy scored 23 goals in pre-season...including 3 hat-tricks and 2 5-fer's! Needless to say his confidence was high going into the start of the season and he currently leads the scoring charts with 6 (he got 4 against Stoke ) In other saves I have toyed around with a BBM but I just think it can lead to the player getting caught out of position too much. CM/S and a CM/D do the job very nicely - Kante has an avg rating of 7.4, Drinkwater 7.28. Assists chart is lead by Okazaki (5) and Mahrez (3). Edit_ not sure what I am doing wrong with the images...? Thanks to Rumpelstiltskin for help on the images.....
