  1. Will be jumping on the Norwich bandwagon as well this weekend! It's where I grew up, so I always like to play games with them. Out of curiosity, how are people using Buendia? On the games I've played with Norwich before in this game I've struggled to fit him in (partially because he seemed to only play AMC) but would like to try to get him move involved this time around.
  2. 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.
  3. Feels bad when you offer someone out for £0 and nobody wants them. Really want their wages gone!
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. Glad to see you've got Mesut performing - what goal/assist figures has he got for you?
  8. What formation are you planning on playing? Hopefully Pavon gives you some much needed width as our squad is lacking in that regard.
  9. 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?
  10. 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.
  11. 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 th
  12. 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

  14. 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 foun
  15. 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.
  16. 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?
  17. 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.
  18. 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!
  19. 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!)
  20. Has the "Free Kick Taking" attribute been removed from Goalkeepers in FM16? I can't seem to see it on any attribute pages for GKs. Is it now taken into account as part of "Kicking"?
  21. I remember quite a while ago there were some studies into seeing which tactics certain managers used during games. As far as I am aware, this was done by putting a really good manager as an assistant manager and letting him take control of matches. How do you view what tactics the assistant manager is using aside from just looking in the "formations" tab after a match - is it possible to extract tactics from matches?
