  1. I have just finished my 3rd season with Valencia...once you get past the financial issues it's a fun save, but it's still a challenge with the difficulties in place as some have mentioned in this thread. Middle of second season I was bought out and the new owner wiped the debt, signed Daka and a CM from Salzburg (name escapes me) Won the league first and third season, finished 7th in second season. Managed to sign Demir on a free contract and a few other free signings that boosted the future transfer funds.
  2. Team kind of picks itself. Bonou, Navas, Kounde, Carlos, Acuna, Rakitic, Ramsey (loan), Suso, Papu, Ocampos, El Nesyri
  3. Enjoy mate. Ocampos and Papu are fun players! I played a 4231 plug and play by knap from FM20, which still works well enough.
  4. Just finished 2nd with Sevilla, got a transfer budget of £10m which isn't the best...but better than Valencia I'm sure
  5. They are a fun save. You are more or less guaranteed 80mil transfer budget each season. Personally at the start of the 3rd season after having got hold of Demir and Salemaakers to add too the likes of Camavinga and Castrovilli I found it got quite unrealistic, but ultimately its what you make it. I won the DFB Pokal Cup both seasons, second season I also won Europa League against Bayern. If you set yourself a target of a BuLi within 3-4 seasons then you're in for a fun save. I've got bored and now need another save 😂
  6. 20 million for him from Barca makes sense to me then. Klostermann is transfer listed so may work as a replacement. Dzeko has performed well for me in this save, will see what he wants for an extension. I loaned Edouard out after a poor first season and resigned Schick who hasn't been that good to be honest. Smalling isnt happy with game time so he is another one I will look to sell and bring Ahmedovic into the squad.
  7. Did Florenzi join Paris or did he come back? He didn't sign for them on my save and his wages are on the high side, so looking at selling him to Barca in January 2nd season. Worried what it will do for the squad though as he is a big character in the team.
  8. I sent him to Sassuolo as the affiliate and he didn't play a single game. Can you post your transfers if possible for second season? How was Dzeko for you? I've never had any success out of him
  9. Well done! What is your transfer budget for the end of the season? Did you manage to get rid of Pastore? In my first Roma save I struggled to sell and had to wait until his contract expired!
  10. Really finding it hard to find a long term save. I tend to manage in Italy, but can't get into Napoli. Tempted with AC Milan or Fiorentina. Also tempted with managing in Germany with BMG or Leverkusen? Any recommendations for Spain?
  11. Tempted to start a save with AC Milan, but main question is do I wait until after the transfer update?
  12. So during the beta I failed miserably with Roma with their formation used irl. Had a season with Inter and dominated the league, Lukaku and Martinez are pretty much cheating! So now I turn to Roma again, this time with a formation I am more familiar with, 4231. Have signed Papetti. Sold Jesus, Fazio, Santon and hopefully Peres. Looking at bringing Bardhi in for depth in AM due to the injuries of mainly Zaniolo and Pastore. Hoping for a better save this time round.
  13. So I completed one season of the beta with Inter Milan, I install the full game and check the Liverpool squad, they haven't registered any of the usual squad, all main players aren't registered and they are playing the reserves in the league games. Anyone else with an issue like this?
  14. I had Esposito in my Roma save, he turned into a great player by season 3 or so. So Barbosa was the man I went for, and yes your advice was spot on so thanks for that. I ended up selling Lozano to Man Utd, which freed up a space for Zaracho. Barbosa wasn't happy when I tried to loan him out, rejected Liverpool loan bid, so I put him in the reserves and he agreed on the second go. Italy is by far the best league to play in due to the competitiveness, but yes the rules are quite confusing at first!
  15. Another registration issue....so I signed Pedrinho, Zaracho and Gabigol but could only register one due to the Italian rules.... When I go into the registration screen it says ine for two of the other latest signings. Is there any way around this? Selling existing squad player for example? Or is it a case of having to wait another 2 seasons in total before adding them in each season?
  16. So, after taking this advice, I was not disappointed with choosing Napoli. As far as transfers, I sold Llorente and Callejon in January, brought in Armini at the start. Lemar, Daramy on permanents and Guendouzi on loan. The first season was very up and down, and in December I had a meeting with good old De Laurentis asking me to get 8 points in 5 games. I looked at the schedule and had Lazio, Milan, Juventus and Atalanta in the next 5 games, had a little chuckle to myself, and hoped for the best! I managed to get enough points to stay in the job, which in turn led me to a 12 ma
  17. Still haven't decided on which team to have my final save with. Leaning towards Lazio or Fiorentina, although Napoli are tempting, especially with how shocking they ended up on my Roma save. Couldn't get into an AC Milan save. Who would you recommend?
  18. Hi all Another avid Serie A FM player Started with Inter, 4 seasons and dominated. Had a really fun 5 season save with Roma, won the league twice. First and 5th season, managed ok, considering the debt in the club. Lazio really improved on an already solid squad, so was an even bigger rivalry. It was really good to see in this year's version (since update especially) that Juventus don't completely crumble and end up signing average players. Tempted to start with AC Milan and try to make them successful again.
  19. Sacked by Roma in February after getting knocked out by Wolves in Euro Cup 16. I promised silverware to the owners.... Onto the next challenge or maybe I'll go for Inter Milan for less of a challenge
  20. Look at Juve though 😂 Great season for you, well done
  21. Agree. Last years version I was Inter for 4 seasons and Juve squad was an embarrassment. Annoying it hasn't been resolved
  22. Just started my save with Roma. Loaned out Santon and Pastore. Got vignato and a young cm from brescia (not tonali) Going for a 4231, worried about lack of forward depth though. Hope dzeko stays fit. Mike Smalling has been giving a stats increase since the Beta.
  23. Some brilliant transfers there. Would you recommend Inter for a save or is it as mentioned in previous posts a little bit to easy? It sounds like 3 seasons has been enough for you. I'm stuck between Inter, Napoli and Roma
  24. 55m with installments. Yeah he hasn't done much at all for me. Thought he would be the one to get us firing but isn't working so far.
  25. Had a shocking start to my 2nd season with Roma. Currently 10th with about 6 losses on the bounce, think the sack is looming. Belotti has scored 4 goals in 20 games.
