  1. i'm half way through a save with crewe. you don't get any money and the wage bill is pretty full but you can ask to get more. it's quite a good challenge i'm manily playing it to test out a tactic i made with arsenal so i'm using a 433, which suits crewe quite well as centre mid is the strongest area of the team imo. all the players i've brought in are either free or on loan. Loans John Bostock-parent club Massimo Luongo-parent club carl jenkison-jan arsenal nathaniel mendez-laing-jan wolves Free's ben thatcher johann smith jamil adam martin camano i think for crewe you need definatley need a left back and a new striker, i've recently lost lee bell to injury and that has effected my team quite a bit, so depending on what tactics you use a back up for him might be needed.
  2. i had this problem as well, one thing that helped me a bit but doesn't really solve the problem is setting the wingers run from deep to never or give them a b arrow. i found this worked better than changing mentality, marking and closing down.
  3. haha i was also going to post a strange man city result but i guess i won't........they beat inter 8-0 in my game. @ Anxiietyyy that's a great prics for santos i can't even get rid of him on a free, i would have kept Djourou though he's been a rock for me. i like the look of your second tactic i'm toying with the idea of playing two upfront for my 3rd season. it all really depends on what i want to do with RVP. i've decided he isnt fast enough to play as part of my front 3 and Vela has overtaken him as my 2nd choice striker, the poacher role i use for aguero also seems to work very well with Vela and it alows me to develop Sanogo there aswell. however i am considering doing a Giggs with RVP and moving him into mc i reckon he could do a job there, he's on far to much money not to be starting each week and he's not the type of player i want to offer out.
  4. unbelievable second sesaon!! FA cup final 6-0 win against Fulham Champs league final 4-2 win agaisnt Real Madrid League title and the euro super cup. and then there was this guy............ i've never had a striker score that many goals ever, he was a one man team and i only wonder if he could have goto 100 if he had managed the 9league games and CL 1/4s he missed. all i need to do now is figure out how to win in liverpool and manchester. ill try do another post tomorow (more detailed review of the season) more worhty of this thread tomorow and i have no idea what my plans are for season 3. edit i think ill sell arteta and arshavin and replace them with hopefully one of; Ozil, hazard, ganso (both at man city), sneijder, pastore, marvin martin, hamsik or maybe even gotze, hulk, kroos or muller, ill prob end up going with who ever is cheapest out of all that.
  5. there's some great results and great posts in this thread good work guys. i've just sown up my 2nd league title with four games to go, the rest of league has been poor in my second season unlike last. Got man city in the semi's of the champs league which is looking difficult as they have beaten my twice this season allready and i'm without god(sergio aguero), rvp and verrmaeen and they humped inter 8-0 at home in the 1/4s, but the other side of draw looks good as Real have nocked out barca so i reckon if i can get to the final i can win the CL again and hopefully do the trebble and win the FA cup aswell.
  6. decision to keep him made thanks guys.......i also asked for 36m and they withdrew.
  7. Selling: Player Name: Angel Di Maria Your Team: Arsenal Buyer/Seller: Barcelona Player's Value: 18m Offer: 27m (5m upfront 21.5 24months) Transfer/Wage Budget: 70m/1.4mp/w Patch: 12.1.1 Season: jan 2012/2013 it's a good enough offer as i bought him for 14m over 48months, but i'm more concerned who i could replace him with and why i'm unsure about selling. the other wingers i have are, Walcott, Gervinho, Arsahvan, Vela and RVP as i have aguerro as my ST. thanks
  8. Aguerro is a MONSTER i love him, he's now got 38 goals in 23 games more than any other player got for me in the whole of last season and it's barely december. i could be in a bit of trouble if he gets injured but i'm sure RVP could cover him but he just isnt getting a look in with my team at the moment. Di Maria Gervinho and Aguerro are killing it and the best part for me is, it's alll part of a tactic i've made myself which i've never done. Also i've been wondering and this may be more of a discusion for the tactics thread but seing as you guys know the players and i'm arsenal i was just wondering how many of you. listen to you assistants rating of players and use them. As mine has my best 11 as: Aguerro ST Di Maria AML Cissokho DL Koscielny DC Sagna DR Mandanda GK Song DM Gervinho AMR Verrmaelen DC arteta MC Arshavin AMC RVP is my 13th or with ramsey being 12th. This almost fits my team perfectly except i play wilshere as my main creator at mcl and have mainly had szczesny in goal.
  9. id love to have a laptop good enough to do a season in 8hours a month takes about 2hours on my laptop, it's so slow! i applied for it never got it, 'they' gave it to mcclaren who picked an awfull squad. he ended up with two of those 'grey' players you get when you don't have a big enough squad and played gibbs at cb although it that did make his team more like an arsenal side with walcot ramsey and wilshere in the team.
  10. this almost feels like cheating! After my bad start to the season i decided to make up my own tactic and it seems to be going quite well. i have him set as a poacher in a 433. do take overs happen alot as arsenal?
  11. i'm having a horror start to 2nd season, i haven't won a big game yet. Man city 1-0 Arsenal CS Man utd 3-1 Arsenal Arsenal 4-0 Reading Dnipro 0-2 Arsenal SC Arsenal 4-1 Stoke Arsenal 1-1 Galatasaray CL Fulham 3-2 Arsenal Man utd 2-1 Arsenal LC My solid defence from last year just isnt there, Mandanda is AWFUL and making Varmaelen my captin was an poor choice as well but made sense as RVP is injured again and isnt first choice with aguerro around. Bolton and Rangers up next should win those games hopefully. it's a class midfield.
  12. that tool is cool, i used your methods when i extened sagna's contract got him down from 70k pw to 48k which is was happy enough with. man utd away 1st game of the season, and i just lost the charity shield 1-0 to man city matanda howler and adebayor of all players scored
  13. paying agents more now thats interesting as i try to pay them as little as possible but when you put it like that paying an agent 1m is nothing when i'm paying 16m more in wages. i allways find if i don't get the deal done first time it costs me more then next time like the di maria deal. yeh and that highest earner clause is killing me. aguerro and rvp have it so if i ever offer them any new deals both will get a pay raise.
  14. yet again more injuries for me. i'm 3 games into pre-season and bartley, gervinho and surprise surprise RVP are all out injured only for a mixture of 3-5weeks but still when alot of my squad are at the olympics it's not leaving me many options. currently out of the 8 players i have that can play Striker only one is available and it's some guy called sergio aguero who'll just have to do........ is there anyway to reduce the injuries? diffrent coaches? change training? and how do i do it if there is? any tips, RVP is on 150k pw on my game. i do try to negoiate but i never really get that great a deal.
  15. i can't decide if should by another cb or not, don't really need one but money is burning a whole in my pocket and i've been offered pepe for 20mil. ill maybe wait till jan......infact i might do that it's allways good to bring in a player every window. starting team going into season 2 is looking like: matanda cissokho vermaelen koscielny sagna ramsey song wilshere walcott RVP aguerro my other cb's are djourou and bartley, i never realised how good djourou stats are, he comes up when i do alot of stat based searches. my only main worry is if i have a cb crisis and i have play song and bartley as my cbs in a semi final or something like that. @lone gooner i bought cissokho for 12m and bender for 7.75m and had a pretty good 1st season id also look at adding another striker cavani should be good for 20odd mil, it manily depend on what tactics you plan on using. my main thoughts on what to do in the first season are a couple pages above.
