  1. Love him, great striker for any sub top six team in the prem - consistent for me over many saves for 4-6 seasons - easy 20 a year man, best was 41 on a Newcastle save. if you dont get him in the first window expect to pay 30/40m. Plays AF very good on his own or great as part a front 2 him being AF with either a DLF or TM on attack. Amazing partner with C Wilson at Newcastle, Grant as AF, Wilson as TM (a)
  2. well done mate on the with the champions league - got there ahead of me lol that's a pretty burnley formation that, could share the three possession transition and out of possession screen shots could you
  3. Like the look of this but play fm touch - could you screen shot the tactics screens please
  4. YEAH needing to design a few more one click formations that are organic and can morph in game. Update Sold Valery for 17.5 and then managed to bring in Yan Couto RB from City and Jeremy Doku from Rennes (previously anderlecht) for 40m. decent money but young with high resale value finding this tactic to be my go to - have also swapped it around so with 3 a the back and either an extra bbm in midfield and also extra af. Love how the wingers and af dribble and run at the defence
  5. update on save Finished 6th in league after terrible slump in form to drop down from battling for 4th for most of the season. small squad came back to haunt me with the extra games of playing in Europa league as well - just ran out of steam. board gave me only 8m which is starting to become a joke - asked for more and also to expand the stadium, big fat no's for both - need a takeover to progress this team further as now have liverpool and barca chasing be white - dwight mcniell and marus edwards. Sold Coady for 15m with one year on his contract and phillips for 41m to PSG - near broke the screen when that bid came in. Also shifted Dusan vlahovic as was thrid choice so sold him for 10.25m with a percentage sell on Loan signings is all i can do this year so signed amad diallo on loan from man u for 150k a month all in, and man city for jayden braaf who looks like a tremendous talent, and Barca have iiaix moribl up for sale so have tried a cheeky loan bid for him but seville pipped me at the post Anyone else finding the ai better this year - now playing comprehensive every match and as having to tweak a lot more in the past - defo no plug and play formations anymore?
  6. @dido53 No problem mate - we'll keep you posted
  7. @dido53 its a great challenge current team is as below - when i sign a player unless they are a specialist (GK or S) or a god like genius (Messi/Ronaldo/VanDyke/Haaland etc) then they must be able to play in at least 2 positions and if possible 3 to allow me to change formations and rotate the team around - always try to ensure teamwork and determination and work rate are above 13 GK's Maarten Vandevoodt 35m buyout clause and worth every penny Jack Butland 550k over 3 years as a good cover - picked him up in the last year of his contract Defenders Connor Coady 51m - big spend but needed a complete player who could play dc dmc mc - spread payments again Ben White 57m - yes 57m but can play dc dmc mc and rb Nathan Ake 8.5m - fell out of favour at city and was transfer listed - bargain CB LB WB IWB DMC Nordi Mukiele 8.5m - again fell out of favour and was transfer listed - mainly play at RB but comfortable at DC WB IWB DMC Aaron Hickey 7.5. from Bologna LB WB IWB ML and RB WB IWB- needed youthful cover and been in and out of the team now for 4 years - just can get a game because of.... Owen Wijndal 22.5m from PSV - my left back for the last 4 seasons - steady eddie at LB WB IWB ML - tempted to upgrade and replace but dont have the money sitting and a bargain hasnt appeared Yan Valery 3.3m - RB WB IWB MR AMR - old favourite from FM 19 20 and is great cover and long term RB replacement as Mukiele has liverpool sniffing round his release fee Marco Kana 30m - DC DMC MC - an FM legend James Ward-Prowse 30m - club captain set piece wizard and can play anyhere - RB WB IWB MR AMR DMC MC AMC ML AML - on deadline day sold Lowton and had N Clyne who then got injured and played him RB for a season - was unreal Kalvin Phillips 30m - another steadie eddie DC DMC MC AMC give him a job and he'll do it Ludovit Reis 0 - Barcelona let him go for free - DMC MC AMC ML MR real good player and has profit written all over him Linton Maina 7.5m - Hannover - SIGN HIM amazing ML but at AML and AMR he really shins - Superb old fashioned winger who scores goals first season P37 GLS 19 ASTS 13 POM 3 on his day he is unplayable Dwight McNeil HG - the only survivor - have played him mainly ML and AML but comfortable MR AMR even SS and played will upfront during an injury crisis - has release fee of 120m for a reason Pedri 0 - Barcelona let him go for free which surprised me - mega wages for a 21 year old but can play anywhere across midfield and attack - first season so using him for europe and cup games Nico Serrano 0 - Hugh Potential and impressed in friendlies but has yet to start a game Marcus Edwards 7.5m first season - favourite player in the game - reminds me of CR7 way back when you got him from Sporting and he just dribbled round the world - AML AMR SS he is just fantastic - one of the players that gets you up off the seat Yusuf Demir 30 m - has blown hot and cold for me and have yet to nail down his best position - steady 7 out of ten with average 10 goals and assists each season Ebrer Eze 25m - Took a punt on him as my filters and scouts kept bringing him up and he hasn't disappointed - better through the middle as AMC or SS but ML AML MR AMR is no problem Karlan Grant 34m - Amazing striker 71 goals in 101 games - great as Advanced forward or PF and have rejected silly money as scared to part with him even though i have......... matias Arezo 2.7m - Stole him at the start of the game and is now developing into the player the world thinks he will be Dusan vlahovic 0 - to be honest cant really review him as has only made 8 appearances in 2 seasons due to Grant notable signing and sales Will Hughes - 20m sold for 36m Emilliano Buendia 20m sold for 39m Nick Pope sold to spurs for 22.5 and flopped Charlie Taylor - didnt want to sell but he wouldnt renew - loved him great with assists and set pieces jack Wilshire 0 - 7.5 cash - quick one season turnaround - would liked to have kept him but had him on a playing incentive contract and was only 2 years so sold him will he was hot and teams were interested Chris Wood - near broke the screen when Brighton offered 34m Ashley Barnes - held on to long and only got 10.75m for him and turned down 25m 12months earlier
  8. Started playing 442 direct as the squad is limited with no real budget to improve - moved formations to 4123 / 4231 counter attacking dependant on the stature of the team i faced. Biggest challenge is budget spend and contract negotiations. The whole teams contracts is running out but you have only so much money and need to choose ended up renewing those i needed to sell with release fee clauses that were just achievable meaning that you are getting cash upfront and then using it to buy better but spread over 3 years and again include a reachable release clause and keep doing again and again. Now the hard part of breaking the top 4
  9. Now in my 4th season as Burnley and the only player left in the team is McNeill who is progressing very nicely. Board do not back you and if you want funds then you need to be clever in the market - buy cheap / free - sell quick. Top half finishes first three seasons, only ever got money that I made and even at that it was generally 75% back in to the pot from the sales - still no takeover though there is a rumour every 3-4 months, but never anything concrete. Season 4 finished 5th, only 2 points off 4th which was mainly due to low player numbers as didn't have budget and would rather buy quality not quantity. If I can recommend one player its the striker Karlon Grant from West Brom - last season won Golden boot with 34 premier league goals. Really enjoyable challenge - Europe next season and the board have demanded semi finals lol
  10. Wondering if you could provide a screenshot of your tactics page please
  11. signed burnley first season, did well - sold jan second season for 4m to bologna who seem to sign a lot of prem players
