  1. Left Back

    Josh Tymon at Hull is an excellent prospect, also Amavi from Villa, Mendy from Monaco or Hernandez from Atletico, all excellent players on the left side.
  2. FM17 - French Football Thread

    I've been playing a game with Lyon and now into season 4. I've been fortunate with a lot of results, including a win in the champions league in the first season. I've managed to keep the best players in the squad together, Fekir, Lacazette, Lopes, Tolisso and Darder are all key players in my side. Morel, Jallet and Valbuena have all become coaches at the club. This has been shored up with fantastic French signings of Lucas and Hernandez from Atletico, Lafont from Toulouse, Dembele from Celtic and Malang Sarr from Nice alongside the occasional foreign signing, of which Andre Horta from Benfica has been the absolute best of. I've just pulled in this result against PSG, a full strength PSG too.
  3. FM17 - RB Leipzig

    Just started an RB Leipzig save today. Into March 2017 already. Signed in 2 players for the first team, first was Frederico Venancio from Setabul to bolster the defence and provide a good stop gap until the young guys are better equipped. The other was Assane Diousse from Empoli, quality tough defensive midfielder to provide good cover in the team. Playing a very attacking 4-1-2-3 formation with wingbacks and 3 strikers, using Selke (11 goals in 14) as a deep lying forward, Poulsen (16 goals in 22) as a defensive forward and Werner (18 goals in 26) as a treq. Oliver Burke is training to be a treq also with Fosberg training to become a defensive forward. Really enjoying this save so far, given that this is my first one in FM17, i've just finished with FM14 playing into 2055 with a club. hoping to replicate that again here.
  4. England vs Iceland - 8pm ITV

    Pougatch having a breakdown in the studio. Asking how the richest league in the world can't produce good players.
  5. England vs Iceland - 8pm ITV

    Kane again. Awful. I wonder, if the quota limits weren't in the EPL how many of these England players would be in the top teams? Not a lot of technical quality amongst them. Iceland are showing how to play well in a 4-4-2 with a lot of energy.
  6. England vs Iceland - 8pm ITV

    Harry Kane. What a free kick
  7. England vs Iceland - 8pm ITV

    I hope Iceland hold out, at least until half time, just to see the utter over-reaction from Ian Wright.
  8. Round of 16 - Switzerland vs Poland - NOW!

    A great goal in an awful match. That deserves to be a winner, not one that probably guarantees 30 more minutes of this dross.
  9. Croatia vs Spain I think bruv. Czech them Turks out too.

    And that's how to make changes in your side and still perform to get a result.
  10. Game 1 - France VS Romania (10/06/2016 8pm)

    Stunning goal...
  11. Game 1 - France VS Romania (10/06/2016 8pm)

    Really love Matuidi, such a work ethic but suffers from the whole head not knowing what the feet are doing syndrome when he's on the ball. Evra, what a tool...stupid foul
  12. Senegal's Arsenal Thread 2015/16

    Ahhh makes sense.
  13. Senegal's Arsenal Thread 2015/16

    El Neny injured or still not fit enough?
  14. Senegal's Arsenal Thread 2015/16

    If that defensive performance was present against Liverpool, it could easily have been 4 points in the last 2 games rather than 2. Almost night and day difference in the back line.
  15. Starting from the bottom

    Great read, really enjoyed seeing how your team has started to fare. I've often found that when using an F9 that they don't get back into the box quick enough after laying the ball off to a supporting player or coming deep to collect a pass. You therefore need to rely more on your supporting cast, either the wide mids or the CM(s) being the ones to benefit from your F9s work. Consider their involvement rather than relying on the F9 to score so much. Also consider your instructions for your wide midfielders, I personally like to have them roam from position, still on support duty and with the cut inside instruction on your left midfielder, is he right footed or capable of using both feet? While its still possible for a left footed player making an impact cutting inside from the left, more often than not, unless the player possesses something special, it can restrict as much as reward. Though in saying that, your defensive solidity is better than mine so...
