    FM18: Athletic Club (Bilbao) - Los Leones

    HAHA. When I gave him that deal, I thought no one would touch that release clause and then PSG did TBF, it is very realistic. They paid more for Neymar and Mbappe

    FM18: Athletic Club (Bilbao) - Los Leones

    Season 7 I was sitting on a big budget and I was wondering what was my weakness last year. Then, I figured out that we could use a striker so I used that money to buy back Inigo Iriondo from Spurs. Then, in a surprise swoop my SS Emilio Groba went to PSG due to his release clause. That freed up funds for me to bring back Laporte and to shore up the back line once again. I then promoted the aforementioned Inigo Garmendia as he was on fire in the B team and he didn't disappoint. He scored almost a goal a game from deep. That move gave us the double: the la Copa and the CL. I think it's safe to say that this is my last season doing the Athletic save at least for FM18. I won as much as I could with this team as it seems as though we might be nicked off once again (PSG is eying Odriolzola and his 110M release clause) Here is the tactic And here are the results And here are all the players And now some players Stayed here until the end and was one of the staples of the back three He was slipping a bit towards the end but I guess the promotion of Artola threatened him and he performed well in the end Made the RCB role his. Came in as a FB but he made his name at the CB position He played CB and LB all year and did well in both Just look at those assists :o Didn't play much but did well Solid DM. He got hurt in the end but played well when he came back in the CL Final The Basque Kante is now a European Champion! He got hurt in the end and couldn't play in the CL Final but he was key as always in our success Did well filling in for Iker. He peaked at the right time Did well stepping in for Groba and he never even played at this level I missed him a lot

  5. All about team building. Building up quality players, buying quality players, and using the right tactic.

    Yep... Either him or Iago Herrerin
  7. Then maybe the Standard mentality will work for you
  8. Thats not the 07/08 team tho. Thats the 12/13 team which is a different beast on it's own

    It's all up to you. I would put one on the right as a IW and the on the left as a W and swap positions.

    Seems fitting in my save. They keep trying to nick my players but only got Laporte :D
  11. In that case, could a mod ( @herne79?) move this to the General Football section (or whatever it's called :D)?
  12. I don't think Mourinho browses this forum But yes, we could easily do a 352 IF we get another CB in but we won't
  13. He didn't make those graphics. He got that off of a site
  14. Indeed. I have success with counter in the past with a Treq. But a deeper playmaker can be ideal when there's not many opportunities to counter as they can nick a through ball and dictate the play from the back. Anything can work as you said :)

    @Cleon is a genius when it comes to tactics. I always get some of his ideas and eventually make it my own. His Ajax save back in FM14 was the blueprint to my Athletic save in FM16 to 18.
