  1. Yep, great days those. Loads of banter, I remember the jokes, because I love a good sale, about how I'd sell my mother. Only for a £1m I replied. Other than you & Welshace, I haven't seen any of the old crew on here for years. I might try and pick up the save again next week when I've some free time & I'll do better at posting.
  2. Hello Macca and Welshace, nice to hear from you. Like Welshace, I've been lurking too. I did post a couple of times in the thread some months back but I haven't really contributed at all in recent years. I'm still FMing but not as much this year. I've found the ME skewed a little, by for example a barely detectable minor individual player gripe which results in the team producing chance upon chance and converting none. I can't buy it, albeit it creates some deja vu of what I've watched on the TV over the past two seasons.. I'll likely as not get the game again this year but I do hanker after t
  3. I'm just in to mid September 2019 and he's on the cusp of being transfer listed in my save too, 'asked to leave' (has been unfairly treated too many times by his manager). I doubt that I've got the transfer and wage budget though.
  4. It's been a while, greetings from an old friend. It's good to see the thread still active here. My days of finding dual nationality South Americans in the game are now just a memory, but it's good to read that Welshace has continued to dig up a few gems. I've not posted here in many a year, but I've continued with the game. Back this year and, yes like old times, I've sold everyone that can be sold. Raising £60m+ and then blowing the lot on young prospects, a few quality players (Robertone, Gouri, Vagnoman) and some go to players of recent years (Pelayo Morilla, Mathias Olivera, Nic
  5. Maybe both? Tactically, save your game so that you can come back to the Leeds save at some point. But I think I'd have a go with the Bayern job..
  6. I got lucky with Vigolo then as the AI (presumably) didn't offer him a new contract at AC Milan. Amo always re-signs at Sevilla unless you get him to immediately accept the offer (once the contract is agreed gradually improve it in £100 increments until the agent says "that is a very acceptable offer").
  7. Macca's signing of Pellegri gave me a thought. The following players can be signed at game start: Jose Maria Amo DC Sevilla (£300k minimum release fee) but you have to get him to immediately accept the offer or he'll re-sign with Sevilla. Daniel Bracanga DM Sporting (£700K) comes easily enough if you offer a rotation contract. Vittorio Vigolo ST AC Milan (£775K), again offer a rotation contract. Tobias Svendsen AML Molde (varies around £300-£400k), offer a rotation contract. All have massive potential.
  8. Can't really do any better than Rajkovic Macca and I like Gruezo a lot. I've realised that you can actually sign him at game start for £4.2 - £4.4M but he does ask for decent wages. As I mentioned, I've re-started too. Looking back at my first save I signed the following for the Premiership: Rajkovic (£4.8M), Eder Alvarez Balanta DC Basel (£4.6m), Paulo Diaz DC/R San Lorenzo (£3.5M), Guillermo Valera DR Penarol (£1.4M), Frank Fabra DL Boca (£2.1M), Alison DM SAN (£2.1M), Dragos Nedelcu DM/DC FCSB (£2.7M), Gruezo (£5M), Sebastian Perez MC Boca (£2.4M), Keegan Dolly AML Montpellier (£8
  9. Thanks Macca. Looking good in pre-season, conceding very little so far.
  10. I do get it, IRL they're our top players. In game I look to push up the quality of the side, I take the money when it is there and I work on the principle that there is always a better player out there; if you look hard enough. Alioski (£10.5M), Saiz (£6.5M), Anita (£7.25M) & Hernandez (£4.2M) were replaced with Sasha (£3M), Thalles (£1.9M), Gruezo (£4.2M) & Duma (free) and they may even be better players. As I mentioned, I found the second season (first in Premiership) more difficult to move players on. I think this may be due to the relative quality of your players compared to t
  11. It is possible to raise a large amount of money at game start (possibly easier then than one year later). Should you want to, Alioski, Anita, Saiz, Hernandez, Ayling & Dallas can be sold at game start. In January you can also sell Berardi, Klitch, Ekuban, Sacko & Cibicki. If you sign Aliji & Duma on frees you can sell them too. I raised £46M in transfer revenue in season 1. In contrast I raised £18.5M in season 2.
  12. WBR Petter Strand (great squad all rounder) & will cost around £700K. WBL Naser Aliji decent enough for a free. DC Diego Polenta (£600k & agent buy out), Cleberson (£825K) at ATP gets w/p at appeal. ST Thalles (£1.9M) VDG w/p on appeal, Eduardo Sasha (£3M) INT (In Brazilian 2nd division now) has an Italian second nationality and is a top player.
  13. So, first window signings. Players: Dede, DC at CEC £500K. Alex Gersbach, DL Rosenberg £525K. Thanks Macca. Saleh Gomaa, MC at Al Alhy £350K. Thalles, ST at VDG £1.9M. Angelo Henriquez, ST at Dinamo £975K. Juan Ignacio Duma, AMR/L/ST free. Yarouba Cissako, DR free. I was amazed that Dede would come and took a pay cut to do so. All got work permits where needed, Dede, Gomaa & Henriquez immediately and Thalles at appeal. Duma & Cissako are squad players. Staff: Phil Cannon 4* shooting. Sergio Zanetti 4* attacking. M
  14. Good to see this year's thread up and running. Line Macca I've spent time looking for players and also attempting to sell players from the existing squad. I've found the latter to be impossible and I'm unsure at this point if this is intentional for the game this year or not. Identifying players who clubs are prepared to sell, or get work permits or are better than the existing squad is also proving very difficult. As I can't move players on, I'm going to limit myself to five or so additions and these will be DL, DR, DC, MC, ST. Of these I'll definitely be in for Gersbach at DL - good find Mac
