  1. I just did a holiday season as Arsenal (with live data update from sortitoutsi), and had the following results: League 2nd place with 23 wins, 8 draws, 7 losses - 77 points. The losses were ALL away, and were: 0-1 vs Bournemouth, 2-5 vs Man City, 3-4 vs West Ham, 0-1 vs Chelsea, 1-4 vs Tottenham, 0-2 vs Wolves, 1-2 vs Burnley Had the most possession (60.58%) and highest amount of completed passes (24026) by far, with the highest completion percentage (85%) Most goals in the league with 94 3rd highest clean sheets with 15 Player wise, I had Augameyang and Lacazette getting 1st and 3rd in the top scorer charts respectively, with 37 and 23 goals. Lacazette was mainly playing AML by the look of things. Mesut Ozil, the Enganche, had the highest key passes in the league with 76, but only registered 10 assists. Cup competitions League cup winners, Europa League finalists (lost 5-1 to Lyon, but had 2 red cards in the 42nd minute - still controlled possession though), FA cup finalists (lost 2-0 to Chelsea after extra time despite controlling the game and having injuries to key players). Looks like the tactic worked wonders in the cups. After this relatively low effort test, I'm looking forward to starting a proper game with the tactic and seeing where it will take me when I've not just left my AM in charge of everything. Nice work!

  3. Going to start a post-Wenger game and try to mimic the "continental" setup that we are seemingly going for IRL. I'm thinking of delegating the following roles - what do people think? Hire/Fire DoF - Ivan Gazidis Hire/Fire Chief Scout - Ivan Gazidis Find and make offers for players for your First Team - Raul Sanllehí (as Sven isn't an option here) Find and make offers for players for your Youth Team - Raul Sanllehí (as Sven isn't an option here) Set assignments for the scouting team - Sven Mislintat Update you on the players your scouts have found - Sven Mislintat All of the others I'm planning on keeping as default. Not having Huss Fahmy in the game means that I can't mirror the contract negotiation side of things in game, unless I delegate that to Raul as well.
  4. I'm starting a new game too with the sortitoutsi data update. Can't figure out what formation I want to play though to get the best out of LMAO. I'm thinking maybe a 4-2-4 although I don't really want to play Ozil & Miki out wide.
  5. Lost all of the data on my PC so I'm having to start again - I'm thinking of making Jack my captain & having him as a key part of the side (assuming he can stay fit) but I'm not sure what formation to use to get the best out of him. Anyone got any ideas? Has anyone else used him much, and if so, where did you get the best out of him?
  6. I'm starting to think about that now. Stoke and Everton both got relegated in my game, so I'm trying to decide whether to bring in Butland or Pickford - I can get them both for a similar amount and on similar wages.
  7. I struggled to sell Alexis in the summer - PSG showed an interest towards the end of the year though. Rather than risk losing him for nothing, I offered him for Di Maria which was accepted. Not a like for like swap, but Di Maria should certainly help fill the hole that Alexis will leave!
  8. How have people been handing the Sanchez departure? I haven't started a save on the full game yet, but when I tried to offer him out in the beta he kicked off and didn't want to leave (even though he won't sign!)

    Barcelona have wasted absolutely no time at all and on the 1st of Jan they enquired about Bellerin. I asked for £30m plus Sergi Roberto, and on the next day they returned with a non-negotiable £42.5m bid for Hector. As I've promised to let him go and it's almost double his value I've had to accept it. Other transfers out could well be: Iwobi to Liverpool (an enquiry has been made), Gabriel to PSG (roughly £25m) and Monreal to PSG (enquiry)

    I'm only in season 1 - started another save with the official data update. Comfortably top after around half a season and I've only lost 1 game so far, which was 1-0 to Real Madrid in the CL. I'm having a look at Sergi Roberto as a replacement for Bellerin. I'm playing IWBs so Roberto may be able to do a job there.

    Bellerin has just broken my heart and told me he wants to leave to join Barcelona. I really don't want to lose him, but I don't think I have a choice if they bid for him. Considering Monreal wants to go to PSG as well, I'll need to find myself a DL and a DR!

    Started a new game using a transfer update - couldn't resist bringing Eduardo back as a backup!

    Pedro Pereira from Sampdoria is looking pretty good in one of my saves. Alternatively, Felix Passlack looks pretty good and is quite versatile.

    I'm going to start again after losing patience and motivation with my first save. Inspired a bit by Sanchez in real life, and from looking at how you guys are getting good results from him as a striker, I think I'll aim for something with Sanchez up top. I'm struggling to decide on a formation, but I'm sure that will come to me eventually. I love 3 at the back formations but I'm not massively confident with creating one as I've not managed to create a successful 3 at the back formation in any edition of FM. Unless I change my mind and go for a 3 at the back, I'll probably be aiming for a 4-1-2-2-1 or 4-2-3-1. How are you guys using Sanchez up top? Is everyone leaning towards a F9/DLF role for him?

    I'm starting to really struggle for motivation with my Arsenal save. I'm just into my 3rd season, and while I've been really successful so far I'm not entirely happy. I'm not getting the kind of results I'd like from Ozil (or my AM in general) in that I'm not really getting the assists from there. The vast majority of my assists are coming from the wings or the full backs from crosses, which is a style of play I'm not particularly happy with. I'm now torn between starting again with a new tactic and new signings (allowing me to actually give Iwobi, Lucas, etc a proper chance) or just carrying on with what I'm doing at the moment. The reason I'm hesitant to start again is that I'm not great at tactics, at all. I've made one that is working for me and I'm not sure I'll be able to make another one that's half as good!
