  1. Ruben Dias was your club captain at 21, but since then when you've posted your tactics screen or squad lists, he is nowhere to be seen. Have you sold him?
  2. Are you looking to control the B team and players the same way as a reserve/u23 team in England?
  3. It works for one team I can tell you that much as I have used it before for Barca and could control the B team like a reserve/u23 team in England. Whether it works for multiple teams and/or there is a quick way of doing, I'm not sure sorry.
  4. Go into the editor, click on File, the Load Database. Then click on Clubs, type in Barcelona and double click on the relevant team. On the details page, it should mention 'Reserve Teams' Click add then select 'B Team' Down the left hand side it should now say Barcelona B Go back and find the original Barcelona B and double click on the relevant team. Go to 'Staff and Players' then select all the players/staff then click 'Edit'. On the 'Contract' section. change their club from F.C. Barcelona 'B' to F.C. Barcelona ''B'' who will have a reputation of 1000.
  5. A fantastic career! Just read from start to finish. Might potentially be interested in doing something similar and so would like to know what you're using to determine if a players city of birth falls within the 30 mile radius? Is it just a basic UK map or have you something more specific to ensure you don't miss out on players born in smaller cities or towns even?
  6. Would imagine that Ozil's 3421 based around Wales isn't too far away from what you want especially with Eriksen as AP-a and a bit deeper than Alli as SS. Kane could do a job as defensive forward or could be changed to complete forward. Might need to Dembele-Wanyama roles though as Ozil has a BWM-d and DLP-s combo and neither Dembele or Wanyama are good enough on the ball to be a playmaker. As previously mentioned Wanyama stays very central and maybe a more disciplined role than BWM, maybe anchorman or a normal defensive midfielder. As far as Dembele is concerned he is one of my fa
  7. I get that Meant for in terms of average position as such? Should have made that more clear.
  8. Do you think the second formation plays close to the current Chelsea 3-4-3?? Pedro being Cesc and Hazard being Ozil playing a bit further forward.
  9. So on my current save with Ajax I've found a few hidden gems. Anyone looking a young cheap wide man capable of playing on either wing as a winger or inside forward as well as being able to play up front could do worse than looking at this fella: Initially brought in to be a rotation option, he wasted no time in becoming first choice on the right wing. This is how he performed for me. Just been offered £8 million for him which I turned down as I think I could get a lot more than that if he has another good season. Realistically I know I won't be ale to hold onto him much
  10. Tevez is an 'extra' for both squads. In that I don't know whether he'd be more associated with United or City. Good shout on Diamanti. ----- I have decided to edit some 'older' players to when they were in their prime. I only have as far as FM08 but I am sure anyone still playing today, if I was edit their attributes to what they were up to 8 years then they'll definitely have been in their prime at some stage. Even some current players who are good in the FM2016 database I've edited: Ronaldo Torres Gerrard Fabregas Essien
  11. So I was watching the Premier League Years for the 2013/14 season and as a Liverpool fan couldn't help but think 'What if Liverpool had kept Suarez and Sterling and really kicked on from that season?' That got me thinking about a few more possibilities as well - 'What if Man United had kept and developed Pique and Pogba into the players they are today?' or 'What if Southampton could have held on to a few of their stars for a few more seasons?' So I decided to make a database with the twenty Premier League clubs that started the 2015/16 season and edit their squads to reflect the best 20 play
  12. 2016/17 Mid-Season Report Top of the league but only 2 points clear of second placed Chelsea and 3 ahead of Spurs. We are 6 points worse off than at this stage last year. Hopefully in the second half of the season we can kick on and retain the title. March will be pivotal to that - us, Chelsea and Spurs all play each other. Progression through the Champions League group stage was secured a 100% record. We drew Leverkusen in the First Knockout Round. The squad are playing well and in decent form, all averaging over 7 bar Cech which I don't see as a bad thing really. When availa
  13. 2016 Summer Transfer Window Adding to the title winning squad from the first season was John Stones who replaced Mertresacker who left for PSG. Stones will compete with and rotate with Laporte and Kos for the two centre back spots. Also coming in was Angel di Maria for £10 million plus Oliver Giroud, a great deal considering was not really suited to how I wanted to play and di Maria is much more versatile. Atletico Madrid matched my asking price of £1.5 million for Monreal and replaced him with the transfer listed Fabio Coentrao and young Josh Tymon from Hull. My thinking is Fabio will do a j
  14. Without meaning to sign harsh, why didn't you look at his attributes and the attributes Ozil lists beside each role in his OP to see what role Xhaka would best fit? You maybe could have found he wasn't a great fit anywhere and possibly found a better fit. Not on the game currently so unsure exactly of his attributes but would most likely say CMd.
