  1. Unfortunately I’m not - a couple of things dissuaded me from carrying on. a) Richarlison did his ACL and he was one of the key players I wanted to build around. This partly killed my motivation b) updating the save here was taking almost more time than playing the save itself. I may restart it at some point and do some updates in a bit less detail Its definitely an enjoyable save though. The squad needs plenty of work but is better than it looks. Some really good youth though, Branthwaite and Gordon looked excellent after a few games in the first season
  2. September Round Up We started September back at Goodison Park, welcoming Jose Mourinho’s Spurs, before trips to Wolves and Leicester in the league, and Middlesbrough in the EFL Cup, and a home game against West Ham United, now led by former Everton manager David Moyes. 01/09/2019: EVERTON vs Tottenham Hotspur, Goodison Park We started again with our 4-2-3-1 with the only notable team news being Tom Davies playing next to Gomes in the midfield 2, while Spurs set up with what was a pretty defensive 4-1-4-1 in typical Mourinho fashion. Despite what the score
  3. August Round Up As mentioned previously, we had been dealt a relatively tricky hand for the start of my reign, playing two heavyweights in our bitter rivals Liverpool (Away), and Man United (Home), as well as a tough trip away to Turf Moor to play Burnley and a home tie against fellow Premier League side Leicester in the EFL Cup. And with that, let’s get into it. 10/08/2019: Liverpool vs EVERTON, Anfield After the good results in pre-season, I decided to stick with the 4-2-3-1. In terms of decisions around individual personnel, the team largely picked itself. Richar
  4. Pre-Season, Tactics and Transfers Our pre-season schedule saw a mix of opponents. I foresaw Zenit being a difficult game first up, with little sharpness in the legs and many players still on holiday. Past that every game would give me a good chance to rotate as necessary and try different things out, up to the final showpiece fixture against Roma at Goodison. Nice for Baines and Coleman to get testimonials, with the Zenit and the Panetolikos being for the benefit of our long serving full backs respectively. Quite what the significance of the two fixtures were for the players I am n
  5. Thanks very much for the kind words. The finances are my biggest concern at the moment - it's my first time managing in the PL this year so I am really unsure how sustainable the wage bill is and what the sugar daddy status of the owner is. Either way I would like to become self sufficient.
  6. I will be starting a write-up on my new save. My first club is Everton, a team who remain uninspiring and ultimately unsuccessful despite expensive recruitment in recent seasons. I don't have much of an idea of my long term plans, I may attempt to win both European competitions and all five major leagues in this save, or equally I may stick with Everton if I feel we are building something special. With that, let's get into it. Squad Report Everton as a club have been underachieving for too long. Too many different managers have been trusted with too much money, fr
  7. Great read this, has inspired me to start something vaguely similar with Everton and attempt to do a write up on it as well
  8. I imagine this is a bit of a long shot but I don't suppose there's anyway of preventing the icons on the tactics screen from moving slightly as roles and duties change (similar to how it was before FM15). My OCD won't allow me to play certain combinations of roles and duties if it sees two of the shirts overlapping (ridiculous I know)
