  1. Just got to October international break in my save. Sitting 5th after 8 games with 1 loss, 2 draws and 5 wins. Arsenal and Liverpool are both join top with 8 wins out of 8 so we are already 7 points behind the leaders. I'm struggling to get Kane to score at a rate that I feel happy with, he has 4 goals in 7apps in the PL which isn't bad but I just feel with those attributes that he should be getting more (he's currently 10th in the top goalscores for the league). In the Champions League I got a bit of a nightmare group consisting of PSG, Inter and Ludogrets. So far i've beaten PSG at home but lost to Inter away. Carabao Cup saw us beat Sunderland at home with a youthful side and we face Leyton Orient in the 4th round at home. Signings so far: James Maddison - £35m - bargain Eriksen replacement Thilo Kehrer - Season Long Loan as cover after selling Toby Nathan Ferguson - £8m (now loaned out to Bristol City) Also signed a number of 17 and 18yo's to boost my U18's and 23's Players Sold: Christian Eriksen - £75m to PSG Toby Alderweireld - £40m to Man Utd Victor Wanyama -£14.25m to Wolves I will probably make Lo Celso's loan a permanent move and I am heavily scouting British talents as I look to rebuild the team over the next 2 to 4 windows. I am looking at the following options: Goalkeeper - Would love to bring in a home grown keeper but there's only really Pickford who would be good enough and I'm not overly keen on him. May look to bring in Donnaruma or someone of that ilk to replace Lloris. LB - Sell Danny Rose and buy Chilwell or Jamal Lewis to replace. Will keep Davies and Sessegnon as backups CB - Ben Godfrey is my initial target here and will look to phase out Jan Vertonghen after this season (I gave him an extension until June 2021). I like Sanchez and Foyth and may just use Dier and Tanganga as 4th choice CB RB - Max Aarons, Jayden Bogle and Atal are my shortlisted options here. Will look to sell Aurier and Walker-Peters may stay depending on budget. Midfield - Looking at making Lo Celso's move a permanent and will probably look to cash in on Sissoko. I've been looking at either Lewis Cook or Sean Longstaff to replace Moussa. I'd love to bring in Declan Rice but don't feel I can have Dier, Skipp and Rice at the same time! Attack - Not sure what I will do here, I'd love to bring in Sancho but this would push Son out. Lucas has done really well for me and I will probably sell Lamela in the summer. Trying to give chances to Troy so he can develop aswell. Have scouted Haland also for consideration.
  2. I've had 2 saves so far, first one I sold him to Leicester and on my current save i've sold him to Wolves although for slightly less (15m) as he rejected Leicesters contract this time!
  3. You can also get £75m for Eriksen (some of the fee as installments) and generally around the £20m mark for Wanyama.
  4. Atal (Nice) looks like a really good attacking Ring Wing Back with some potential to grow. Max Aarons looks a beast if you want a homegrown option or if you want a cheaper option someone like Jayden Bogle from Derby.
  5. Alex Savva has left Tottenham and is no longer a fitness coach there - https://www.linkedin.com/in/alex-savva-b13a4943/
  6. I've now added screenshots of each player to the 1st post
  7. Introduction 2019 has already been a big year for Tottenham. They moved into there new state of the art 62,214 capacity Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, they reached there first UEFA Champions League final where they finished Runners Up to Liverpool. Off the field they also have signed some players for the first time in 18 months. The foundations are now in place and even Mauricio Potchettino has said that the club needs to start a new chapter. Are you the man or woman to do this on FM20? Facilities * Training Ground - State of the Art * Youth Facilities - State of the Art * Data Analysis Facilities - State of the Art * Junior Coaching - Good * Junior Recruitment - Good Board Expectations The Squad Goalkeepers: #1 - Hugo Lloris (Captain) #22 - Paulo Gazzaniga #13 - Michel Vorm #41 Alfie Whiteman Defenders: #3 - Danny Rose #4 - Toby Alderweireld #5 - Jan Vertonghen #6 - Davinson Sanchez #16 - Kyle Walker-Peters #19 - Ryan Sessegnon #21 - Juan Foyth #24 - Serge Aurier #33 - Ben Davies #39 - Japhet Tanganga Midfielders: #8 - Harry Winks #12 - Victor Wanyama #15 - Eric Dier #17 - Moussa Sissoko #18 - Giovani Lo Celso #20 - Dele Alli #23 - Christian Eriksen #28 - Tanguy N'Dombele #29 - Oliver Skipp Forwards: #7 - Heung-Min Son #10 - Harry Kane (Vice Captain) #11 - Erik Lamela #27 - Lucas Moura #52 - Troy Parrott #TBC - Jack Clarke - Out on Loan Squad Notes: Key players Alderweireld, Vertonghen and Eriksen all have contracts expiring in June 2020 so you need to decide whether to try and resign them to longer deals or wether to cash in on them. Alderweireld does have a £25m release clause that expires after 25/07/19 and it is possible to sell him for more after this date. There are some good young players with decent potential in the squad with the likes of Sessegnon (19), Sanchez (23), Foyth (21), Walker-Peters (22), Winks (23), N'Dombele (22), Skipp (18), Dele (23), Lo Celso (23), Parrott (17). You also have Jack Clarke who is on loan at Leeds United in the 19/20 season. Lo Celso is on loan at the club but you are able to buy him on a permanent deal for £36.8m. Supporter Expectations Tottenham have not won a trophy since the 2008 Carabao Cup and this is something that the supporters do not feel happy about. They have lost 8 FA Cup Semi-Finals in a row since 1993. They reached there maiden UEFA Champions League final but lost out to Liverpool. They last won the league in 1961 and in the Premier League Era there highest league position has been 2nd (2016/2017 season). Can you be the man to finally lead them to some long awaited success?
  8. I know they are not listed above but Hertha Berlin have some decent youngsters and a good youth system!
  9. Portsmouth FC December 2018 - Update #1 A very good start to the season league wise, we are currently top after 19 games closely followed by Barnsley who are 3 points away from us. We've scored 45 goals in the league so far and only conceeded 14. The system seems to be working well so far. James Vaughan leads the scoring charts for us with 10 goals in the League. In the domestic cups front, we reached the Carabao Cup 3rd Round where we deservidly lost at home to QPR but to be fair I did play a 2nd string side. We won our group in the Checkatrade Trophy winning all 3 of our games which included a 5-0 win vs Southampton U23's who played the likes of Jack Stephens, Dael Fry (signed from Middlesbrough) and Matthew Targett in the starting XI. Sadly we are already out of the FA Cup as we put in a terrible performance at home to Oxford in round 1. In January I will be trying to get rid of Brett Pitman (has been awful for me and doesn't really fit into my system), Brandon Haunstrup & Dion Donohue who don't seem to be up to standard and then possibly Ben Close and Louis Dennis if I can find clubs to take them off my hands. Omar Bogle has been terrible also and is on a hefty wage but I'm not sure if I will be able to terminate his loan. I will be trying to bring in a Striker and possibly another wide player depending on funds and who's available.
  10. So having got a little bored of top division saves, I started looking at clubs in the Championship and League 1 who I could build up and get them to the Premier League, unsuccessful attemps was made with the likes of Aston Villa, Nottingham Forest, Norwich and Sheffield United. I then stumbled upon Portsmouth in League One, the club was in the Premier League less than 10 years ago, and they even won the FA Cup in 2008. Can I restore this club to Premier League and perhaps European and Domestic cup success? Portsmouth FC July & August 2018 - [Pre Season] One of the things that attracted me to Portsmouth, was the 2 centre backs Matt Clarke and Jack Whatmough, both are young with room to grow and Whatmough is also Home-Grown. I am also familiar with Luke McGee and Anton Walkes as they are former players of the team I support (Tottenham). Looking around the starting squad I can see a good core with decent players for this level such as Brett Pitman, Nathan Thompson, Tom Naylor, Jamal Lowe and Ronan Curtis. Coupled with some loan players like James Vaughan, Omar Bogle and Lloyd Isgrove there is some good quality in the squad which should see us challenge for automatic promotion if I can bring in the right additions to fill in the gaps. I wanted to play a high pressing, attacking 4-3-3 based system so I set about seeing what the squad needed in order to play in this system. I was looking to bring in some depth in Central Midfield and in both full back positions. Ollie Hawkins departed for £65,000 to Dundee and Gareth Evans departed to Scunthorpe on Loan for the season although I probably should have kept him around. These were the only departures from the squad during this transfer window. Incoming on free transfers from Sweden was Anders Baath, Isak Ssewankambo and Dennis Olsson. Matt Butcher and Brendan Galloway was signed on Season Long Loans from Bournmouth and Everton respectively with us paying £0 to there wages. Towards the end of the window I brought in a German goalkeeper Florian Schwaiger on a free as 3rd choice for some depth and also Thibaud Verlinden joined from Stoke on a season long loan as we had some injury concerns with my wide players. I will do the next update around November/December time in-game.
  11. Hi, I think the cost of training ground / youth facilities should be looked into, I think the most I have been charged in game for this was around the £5m mark. Clubs are now spending £30m+ on there training grounds (Man City, Tottenham, Leicester, Liverpool to name just a few examples). It would also be cool if perhaps there was a limit to what the facilities could be rated at, and once that limit is reached then a brand new facility has to be built (similar to how a new stadium works in game). Teams seem to only be able to stay at the same training ground unless a move is inputted into the game (such as Liverpools) but every so often clubs are now building new facilities at different sites. This would add some more realism to the game.
  12. I would also like to see this returned, also on the topic of attendances, it seems that the away attendances need a bit of looking into. On my current save with Leeds away fans bring 3,000 to EPL games, however for all FA Cup games it shows Away attendence as 2994. It should be around 15% for FA Cup so this isn't correct.
  13. Hello, I think the Pre Season tour needs a bit of a revamp, in real life it is very common for tournaments etc to take place in the US and Asia for example. It's becoming more common to see the likes of Man Utd play Man City etc in these kind of tournaments. With the current system it seems impossible to arrange a friendly with a rival let alone to do the match on a tour! Most of the bigger EPL teams play there friendlies in big NFL stadiums which also can't be done in the game (even though most of the stadiums are actually in the game). This would make the game more realistic and align it more to what is happening in the real football world.
  14. Hi, I think it would be a cool addition if we could have a Sponsorship section on the playable / loaded leagues (similar to the Prize Money section). This could show things like Domestic Broadcasting deal, International Broadcasting deals, General Sponsorships etc. Your TV deals could go up or down depending on the league rep. Using the Premier League as an example, say if a new broadcast deal kicks in that is worth even more than the current deal then the TV money between the clubs can then go up. Likewise if the deal is not soo lucrative then the TV rights money would go down. This would work well in the Premier League and give it a more realistic detail. I am not so sure how this could work with a country like Spain perhaps as I know they don't distribute the TV money evenly like the EPL. This concept could also tie into the Prize Money aspect so if the league rep increases, as the sponsorship increases, the prize money should likewise increase. I also think this could work well with the Champions League and Europa League. It's a little boring and unrealistic that the prize money and tv deals just stay the same throughout the entirety of a save game. Hopefully this makes sense, happy to clarify more detail if needed!
