  1. Looking to strip the squad down in 1st window and add some quality youth players by selling the following Mustafi, Sokratis, David Luiz (possibly), Cedric, Kolasinac, Elneny and maybe Lacazette. If you have had success selling these in the first window can you indicate who they went to, the fee etc.
  2. How much did you manage to get for Ozil ?? Had real difficulty trying to move him on ... Napoli seems to be the only team that buys him
  3. Did well selling Cedric for £20mil, did you list him or just receive a bid in and who bought him. See Ozil being an issue in this game.
  4. 34" or 43" version ?? Need to get a new computer and screen as mine is playing up
  5. Will start with playing as Arsenal, only real plan was to sell a few extra players to bring the squad size down so Ozil Sokratis Saliba can be selected for competitions. Only signing depending on ratings on there ratings could be to bring in Mario Mandzukic on a free
  6. Currently the only finances that can be effected in game are the transfer funds/wage bill slider and would like further options. Player clauses are able to be bought before financials come out to reduce the amount being taxed. Loans/debts can be paid off completely, reduce payments or reduce term length. When requesting board for improvements or extra staff and the board refuses the option to use transfer/wage funds towards it. (ie staff on 1k a week offered a year contract will take 52k from funds) Ability like Man City to buy clubs as feeder clubs. On subject or feeder clubs it could be more informative. Clearly display number of years to gain countries nationality. When clubs say they boost merchandising sales an estimate amount would help. Advertise (like staff) for feeder clubs. Any other suggestions welcomed
  7. It was beginning of January I believe that I got the initial reports of quality of intake … not sure if it is end of feb/march when they generate
  8. I have done every upgrade the board has allowed me to do so with both training and youth facilities state of the art. Had great centerback come through potentially Saliba level talent according to scouts and signed a similar level one from ManU. The two wingers (one each side) I had come through potentially could be Saka/Nelson levels. Early report is an excellent intake this year but only at end of January so will have to let you know what I get comes out. (Promising fullback, promising centerback, attacking midfielder to keep an eye on and very handy winger)
  9. I lucked out in my current game by managing to sell Mesut Ozil to Manu in the first season for £47.5mil with no wage contribution with selling Mustafi to Brighton so was able to bring in a number of top players over 3-4 year payments from the start. By selling them I was able to bring in Ruben Dias, Florentino, Verschaeren, Haaland in as first teamers with Pellegri, Gravenberch, Bellingham, Camavinga, Marco Kana, Kenneh, Vazquez, Hickey, Kotchap, Armini and Gasparini into u23. For 500k/month loan deals Mavropanos went to Derby and Gouiri went to West Brom. January window brought Chinese bids for Sokratis and Kolasinac so replaced with Upamecano and Chilwell. Chambers had played really well but unhappy since Ruben Dias arrival so accepted Wolves £42.5m bid. Manu came in paying £67m for Xhaka so bought Dani Olmo in … Selling 4 players did screw me somewhat in Europe as could only replace 3 players and lost a spot. Intake gave me wonderkids on both wings and at centerback, with a dozen passable regens coming through. I Bought in the best English regens available (a defender RC/WB is first team ready) for each position along with several top rated regens. Summer window big buy was Milinkovic for £62mil with Reinier Palacios. Out went David Luiz to Wolves. On loan went Gouiri to West Brom £500k/m, Mavropanos Nketiah to Palace £500k, Palacios/Reinier £500k to Hispalis*, Elneny to Ac Milan £250k (mandatory fee £21m) and Mkhitaryan £500k at Roma (mandatory fee £19.1m) January window a couple more regens arrived including a potential worldclass German/Spanish goalie. Gasparini is not far behind Martinez and will replace him as backup at end of this season with the regen the 3rd/u23 keeper. Development centre says have an excellent intake, judging by notes should get 4-5 quality regens through. Lopez, Medley and Sheaf will leave end of season through loan options completed (£18.5m) having played 20 times. In the summer will have to sell off a number of first team players to allow the youth players to come through more. Also got to stop buying so many regens !!
  10. My profile is set up with high determination that helps with arguing with the board for upgrades and feeder clubs. In 1st season (started Brazil date in May) and have gained 4 feeder clubs to date in Feb. QPR in championship with 1st option and loan deal, added scouting knowledge. Sunderland in Division1 1st option and loan deal, added scouting knowledge. Vallecano second division in spain but going to get promoted. Great for loaning some of my non eu players as 2 years to get nationality. Frontale in Japan to boost merch and scouting knowledge. Colarado is good for marketing relations. I normally send players who are not going to make it to Boreham Wood on free transfers with 50% sell on fees so keep that one. Unless you renegotiate the deals at Wadi Degla or Gai Lai for first option/loans they are pretty useless.
  11. Nice pull, interesting to see what you get when the players turn up. Had similar youth intake preview with terrific group of golden generation coming through. Had a lot of fullbacks coming through with promising CB, very handy winger … could be great but really wanted a goalie.
  12. Did loan John-Jules to Hull for £200k/month and Balogun to Vancouver for 100k/month. Have forgotten but does the loan fees get added to wages or to transfer funds ??
  13. Continued my save last night and bought in a couple more players leaving my transfer budget down to £10mil. Have commited spending of £60m for 2020 and 2021 and £37.5m for 2022 so going to need to sell players end of season. Good start to season with 2-1 away win at Aston Villa and 2-1 comeback at home to Liverpool although my Defence is looking ropey to long through balls
  14. I don't think Hurtado for £18m is worth it, would rather stick with Nketiah. Try unsettling a few of these ..
  15. Once Rennes accepted the offer it took several attempts before he accepted. Did make interest public which was a risk and think I ask Guendouzi to back the move
  16. Starting a couple of months early means the youth players aren't as developed as starting mid July and are cheaper, teams are also trying to balance the books too. With Arsenal there aren't many players I haven't managed to unsettle in truth it sometimes just takes time and multiple bids, wait and do it again. I often do it to rival teams to drop their morale too. With the Loans of Mavropanos and Gouiri I did them on July 1st if that helps
  17. I have just restarted my Arsenal game from old save load which I set the start date from Brazil in May. By doing this it gives me extra time to sort out the backroom staff/scouts etc and I find you can pick up some players far cheaper. I try to unsettle as many transfer targets as I can so once I sell some players I can bring in some top quality starters for a fraction of their value. I start off by buying in some of the best youth talent I can to stock in the u23s I managed to upset Gouiri buying him and immediately loaning him to West Brom who are paying his full wage and 500k/month. Mavropanos went on loan to Derby for 500k/month paying full wage Next was brilliant as Brighton paid £22.5m for Mustafi and ManU paid £46.5m for Ozil (20k wage left to pay). Never managed to sell Ozil the 1st time round so need some new arrivals Signed Pellegri on loan with future option after unsettling him Haaland, Verschaeren, Camavinga, Florentino Luis and Ruben Dias all came in SC Lacazette Haaland Pellegri Light blue is u23/cup games LW Aubameyang Smith Rowe Martinelli RW Pepe Nelson Saka MC Verschaeren Ceballos Willock MC Guendouzi Xhaka Bellingham Gravenberch DM Florentino Torreira Camavinga Kenneh LB Tierney Kolasinac Vazquez RB Bellerin Chambers Maitland CB Sokratis Holding Medley CB RubenDias DavidLuiz Armini GK Leno Martinez Macey Gasparini One of the best squads I have assembled going into the first season and have just over £16m left heading into last day of transfer window. Will seriously need to balance the books in the January/Summer windows and try to balance the squad
  18. Great how you managed to get everyone so fit beginning of the season in August
  19. What country are you playing in ??
  20. When I play against friends it goes by the teams we support or balanced teams. I support Arsenal but my mate supports West Ham which put him at a huge disadvantage last year so we have decided to go to Italy for fm2020 and give him the advantage this time .. He has Napoli and its Roma for me. Guess key is to pick teams at the same level financially and in terms or players.
  21. I like the idea of being able to mold players at a younger age into more suitable positions. A further suggestion I would like on youth intakes is that you could perhaps prioritise a position of need. It wouldn't guarantee a wonderkid quality player but would allow more players in said position.
  22. I would like the option to request that the clubs board use cash surpluses in more constructive ways. 1) Before the divided/tax bills have to be paid that there was an option to pay off some of the clubs debts and thus reduce these bills. This could be done by paying off the entirety of the debt or ability to restructuring/reducing the payments/time. 2) Able to hire staff above the board limits. Extra staff can be signed with the wages for the duration of contract taken from transfer funds, so additional coach on 10k/week 1 year contract would require £520k fee removed from transfer funds. 3) Allow money to be set aside for future building upgrades. If for instance I wanted my clubs grounds capacity to be increased that I could pay for it from player transfer funds.
  23. Ended up buying the regular version for £27 rather then the Arsenal version as it was 50 euros … huge difference in price for logos and face packs.
  24. Top 5 sales seem unrealistic unless you are spreading the fees out over several years.
  25. The way half the players have performed this season I would have got rid of more !! I buy some players to loan straight out to make money (Marin, Morilla, Soucek) Others are to replace and improve the first team like eg Tierney for Monreal. Finally I pad the u23 u18 youth teams with talented English players
