  1. Well done @Muggert - great perseverance. why are you finding it so tricky with finances. Wages too high or crowds and tv money too small.
  2. Table | Squad | Transfers Started the season really well until about dec when the team started to unravel with a series of losses and draws. The team was 5 points of the top by mid mar and needed 13 points form the last 5 games against the bottom 5 teams luckily, to sneak the title again. Avagyan was injured for 6 months with a broken leg and has sharply declined, the defense was poor in his absence and the team generally dominated in too many games. The team went on to win the cup for the first time and do the double. In Europe the other Hungarian teams were poor but still got an extra european spot for future seasons. After an easy passage to the CL group stages, the team were trashed 9-0 by Man Utd in their first game. They recovered to win against Lazio and Valencia and went into the last game against Valencia needing a draw to finish 2nd. 2-0 down at halftime they came back to draw 3-3 and qualify. In the 1st KO rd the team faced PSG and won the 1st leg 2-0 against 10 men. They lost 4-0 against an ageing Mbappe to end a decent run. Finances went up hugely thanks to the CL money and few transfers. The facilities were improved and appear to be maxed out apart from youth facilites which will be improved again. The stadium expansion meant the team moved into Ferencvaros's 22000 stadium all season and the attendances doubled. Another stadium expansion of 1458 seats is planned for next season. Neya went as his min fee was activated which i didn't realize was so low. I sold Filis as he had never really managed to perform well in spite of good attributes. Ilyuschenkov and Silva were again the start performers. I wanted to sign Diallo on a bosman but his wage demands were too high, when he was released i was able to sign him for less than a quarter of what he previously wanted. I was still a bit disappointed with his output as i expected more. For the first time almost in this save i had a golden generation and 2 players who might play for the first team. Szalanczi is still some way off my current strikers and Mohamed is the 1st non-EU newgen at the club. Since i am strong at RB and weak at LB (Dunst wants to leave and Halasz is on loan) i may convert Mohamed to LB.

  3. @Muggert - looks like the tactic is working, surely this is your season.
  4. Forest paid the player 10% of the remainder as well, that seems a shocking deal on their part
  5. Usually if they are a foreign tycoon , you end up with loads of youth players coming through with that nationality. Not sure about buying players from that country.
  6. Great performance this season. Perhaps when you concede you concede a lot of goals, Could point to your defenders and goalie being very inconsistent in performance. Are they all quite young?
  7. a different role out wide may be needed ,none really look like wingers to me. Dom could be a winger but maybe wide playmaker is better, the other two look like wide target men but that is only available for AML not ML.
  8. Halfway through the next season and its proving much tougher in the league with injuries and fatigue. Got to the CL groups and was thumped 9-0 by Man Utd
  9. Knowing what makes a good HoYD is tough, a good personality or one rated highly in JPA and JPP. Which ever it is, i'm certain i don't know. Loan manager is linked to rep i think as the option came available for me even though i don't have many youth players around. I would have sold Ndlovu as that is a lot of money and the 30% clause could have added a lot more
  10. Table | Squad | Transfers Started the season as favorites and soon topped the league. By Mar it was a battle between only Eger and Ferencvaros, the fixture congestion lead to a downturn in results but Ferencvaros ended with 7 games in 18 days (Eger had 2 in the same period) in May and could only draw most of them handing the title to my team with 2 games to go. Reached the final of the Hungarian cup for the first time but the team were poor losing 0-1 to Ferencvaros. In Europe the team completed in the euro cup II again and reached the group stage. They topped the group with 2 games to go allowing me to play reserves in the last 2 games. The team were outclassed by Napoli in the 2nd KO rd, twho went on to win the tournament beating Ferencvaros in the final. Finances went up but it was spent on training and youth improvements as well as increasing the stadium by 1660 seats. I sold long time player Menczeles but Silva and Santo (bought last season) ensured he wasn't missed. Neya had a low min fee clause which i didn't realize until it was activated and he went. Rose was his usual solid self and i turned down bids of £9 million from some Chinese clubs. Him and Pantovic are still my main pairing but possibly need replacing going forward. Up front Ilyuschenkov was again my top scorer, i also brought in Okrah for a snip, he finished as the league top scorer and African player of the year. I turned down bids for Ilyuschenkov of £7.5 million from Benfica and Porto during teh season, luckily this didn't upset him to much.

  11. That actually looks like a great intake. Don't take golden generation for granted, in my game i have had the terms 'this is a mediocre group or this is a poor group' every year for nearly 10 seasons. and this with facilities the same as yours (but in Hungary!). Worse they are right, they are poor.
  12. @jmarchand - well done on reaching Serie A. Mariano looks like a decent player, surprising that he scored so many at that level though, your tactics must be right for him. I never understand why the AI clubs do what Empoli did, get the top league scorer in and bench him
  13. I know i had taken a hard line with some players but i seem to have become more disciplined than the game allows
  14. The money from Bacon seems really good value, i'm surprised he was valued so high as his attributes don't seem that great even for L1. Also he had slipped some from Driven
