  1. Ozil, Mkhitaryan and Welbeck all had nobody interested for me at the start of the second season. I eventually offloaded Welbeck for free, but nobody will touch Ozil or Mkhi, even for nothing. As an aside, I managed to get: £27m for Iwobi, £15m for Ospina, £1.5m for Macey, £5m for Asano, £5m for Martinez, £29m for Kolasinac and £30m (rising to £40m) for Mustafi.
  2. Feels bad when you offer someone out for £0 and nobody wants them. Really want their wages gone!
  3. I already have Pavon and was thinking of bringing in Sancho as well - I could bring in Dembele instead of him but I imagine he'd be more expensive. I intend to rotate whoever plays AML/AMR with Reiss and ESR next season, so can probably only afford to bring one in. I also want to get rid of some or all of the following, but I'm struggling: Sokratis/Koscielny, Elneny/Ramsey, Xhaka, Iwobi, Mkhitaryan, Welbeck. I'd consider selling Ozil as well to free up the wages for someone else - he's on the same as Mbappe would be! I'm unfortunately not getting any offers at all for Xhaka, Mkhi or Welbeck, so it's making a squad reshuffle much harder than I'd like!
  4. Ended up settling on a 4-2-3-1 and got both Aubameyang and Lacazette scoring regularly by swapping them between AML and ST. They ended up scoring 32 and 31 respectively, with 20 each in the league. I won the league and the FA cup first season, but now have a big decision to make: selling Aubameyang. Real Madrid are offering just under £80m, and Chelsea are offering £99m. While I'm a massive fan of his, £99m for a 30 year old seems very hard to turn down. I've had a bid accepted for Mbappé, but he'll cost a potential £200m plus 350k p/w. Any other ideas for replacements for Auba if I were to let him go?
  5. I've managed to get 18 goals and 4 assists from Aubameyang in 21(1) games as a lone AF(A) although I must admit I'm not too happy with how the rest of the team is doing so may start again and rethink things tactically. Lacazette, while he hasn't played much due to injury, has 2 goals and 2 assists from 8(5) games, although most of these were from AML as an IF - this is one of the things I'm not hugely happy about. I don't mind who plays up top for me, but I'd like both Auba and Laca to be scoring regularly. I'd also like Ozil to do SOMETHING. I think playing him as a Mezzala as suggested already in the thread may be the right call. I've been playing him at both MC and AMC so far, and he's managed 1 goal and 2 assists in 21(2) games. In contrast to Mesut though, Smith-Rowe has been brilliant for me and I look forward to developing him further.
  6. Glad to see you've got Mesut performing - what goal/assist figures has he got for you?
  7. What formation are you planning on playing? Hopefully Pavon gives you some much needed width as our squad is lacking in that regard.
  8. Would make sense for us to have an FM19 one! @gandrasch did this one so not sure if he's planning on doing the 19 one as well?
  9. Interesting - what was your reasoning behind putting Ramsey central and Ozil out wide? I didn't think Ozil would be explosive enough to really get a lot done in that kind of area.
  10. I'm struggling to decide on a formation as well - all I know at the moment is that I'd (ideally) like to have Auba and Laca playing up top together, or at least attacking as a 2 when we're in possession, and I'd like Ozil playing centrally as well. I don't really know how I can achieve what I'm thinking in the tactics creator though, essentially I want kind of what we've got IRL under Emery: 4-2-3-1 when defending, but 4-2-2-2 when attacking, with the strikers forming a partnership. I don't think IF(A) will give me the movement I want in the ME. Perhaps a narrow 4-2-3-1 could work with the AMCL as a SS?
  11. 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!
  12. https://sortitoutsi.net/football-manager-start-date - You can start from whatever date you want to with this file!
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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?
