  1. I can't really comment on Arsenal in my game as I play as them, but Liverpool got relegated first season in my game. It wasn't even close, they finished 20th. Rodgers got sacked half way through the season for Benitez, and he didn't do much better.
  2. Did a test (so it isn't particularly realistic) with a team at 10k rep. Messi IS signable at this rep level for his minimum fee release clause (£217m) - he asked for £300k per week. He is much easier to sign than on FM12 (the same was attempted on 12, couldn't agree wages with him at all)
  3. I will be next season due to the update, but I'm currently using the tactic from http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php/318271-Assymetrical-2-2-2-2-2-EPL-Win-with-Swansea-1st-season. - I was getting rather annoyed with my own tactic so decided to go for a bit of a plug and play. With the first version of the ME in the beta I was trying a narrow 4-2-3-1 however found that Cazorla got completely surrounded in the middle (by both his own players and the opposing team), so having a more open formation suits him more I feel.
  4. My Cazorla has.... 33 (1) games played in all competitions so far, 13 goals (0 pens), 14 assists, 5 motms, 3 yellow cards, 88% pass success, 0.63 dribbles, 7.35 average rating. He's playing as a trequartista for me.
  5. Liam Brady just found me someone that looks a real gem - it might be worth other people having a look. His name is Siebe Schrijvers, he's a young striker from Genk. He's come to me at 16, although already has finishing of 15, composure of 14 and accel of 16. His determination is only 9 on my game though so I will have to try to get that up to get the best out of him.
  6. How did you sign Neymar? He's not at all interested in coming to play for me!
  7. Marvellous, thank you for the reply. I'll try converting Aaron Ramsey to an ML - will be a nice little experiment.
  8. What kind of player should the WM on the left be? Should he just fit the standard "WM" attributes?
  9. I keep getting comments along the lines of "we need to be tighter in our own area as it's too easy to get shots off right now" - what should I be changing? Closing down is already pretty high!
  10. Why have people been selling Mertesacker? Too slow? I am bringing in Aldeweireld but am looking to sell Djourou (never really use him)
  11. In my game I managed to get Cabaye for £20m which was nice. Obviously he's not a super defensive player, but has tackling of 14 iirc which isn't shabby at all. The main thing I am struggling with is getting a formation to work. Regardless of which formation I try (I've tried over a few different saves) I ship goals left right and center. Anybody got any tips?
  12. 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?
  13. A friend and I are trying to play a network game with a custom database however there are constant crash dumps when he attempts to add a manager. I thought that this may be because he doesn't have the associated files so I sent him the editor data files however it still doesn't work. are there any other files he needs?
  14. In my Norwich game Harry seems to play Samba up front quite a lot. I'm guessing he has some kind of rating as a striker.
  15. Happy with this tactic overall but I'm really struggling to win games. Absolutely dominating all teams I come up against, but I keep conceding from corners & just cannot seem to finish the chances I create. A lot of chances seem to be long shots which end up being wasted. Might try lowering the long shots settings for some players and see how that goes.
  16. Like many, I'm going to be starting one "last" Arsenal game. I'm using Wally's update so I've got all of the transfers and I'm going to experiment a bit more, using a similar tactic to what I'm using in the lower leagues - some kind of 3 at the back formation. I'm torn between 3-4-3 or 3-4-1-2/3-4-2-1, and it will all depend on who I can bring in up front. Will be interesting at least though! So far I'm targeting Hazard and Gotze, who, depending on the formation, will either play on the wings or as the 2 most advanced midfielders.
  17. Joel Campbell has officially signed for Arsenal from Deportivo Saprissa. Not sure if a CA increase should be on his way too? Can only judge by youtube which I know is poor in itself but he looks a decent player. Also, has Miyaichi been tweaked at all?
  18. Has anyone developed Freeman at all? I'm in the first season and bringing him on occasionally, he's got 1 goal in 3 sub apps in the PL which I don't find too bad - scored a pretty lovely lob against Fulham.
  19. I've had an immense amount of success with Eden Hazard whenever I have used him, he does brilliantly on the left or in the middle.
