  1. Currently setting up my Ajax save. The update really motivated me to give Ajax another go. My save with them on fm19 was really enjoyable. Finally I can play with Tadic, Ziyech, Neres, Gravenberch, Schuurs, Brobbey etc. again. So many great youngsters. Dest and Naci look fantastic
  2. The regional cups are officially for all teams in divisions licenced by the DFB or their regional federations. Thats also why its 3. Liga and not 3. Bundesliga. So you'll have to be promoted again to escape the Landespokal.
  3. Still going in 2022 in my current save. On my other saves he has only ever left Barca if I tried to sign him and even then it hardly ever works. Tactically he is so good he can do almost anything. In one save, where I wanted to use the same shape at every team I take over, I ended up at Barca in season 3. With all their attacking talent I ended up putting him in MR at WMa and he was still easily my best player.
  4. He's in my game. He starts at NEC Nijmegen
  5. I sold him to PSG for £65m after season 2 and I've regretted it ever since. Barbosa has been great though and I also had Zaza who was great
  6. Just put 12 past Crystal Palace in a league match We were already leading 6:0 when they went down to 10 men because of injury after 56 mins
  7. Well if you think thats a fine dirndl you haven't seen anything yet.
  8. Buying/Selling: Buying Player Name: Jack Wilshere Your Team: Newcastle Buyer/Seller: Arsenal Player's Value: £17.75m Offer: £´63m Transfer/Wage Budget: 122m/1.79m p/w left Patch: 14.3 but started on 14.2 Season: Nov. of 2nd season, just had a tycoon takeover
  9. Ajax Half Season Review 2013/14 After reading this thread and Cleons thread in the tactics & training discussion part of the forum I decided to start a save with Ajax. Transfers My original plan was to only to buy the first three players and then play the season with the squad I had but then Monaco came in with a bid for Daley Blind which I accepted after a few rounds of negotiations. With Blind gone I felt a little light at the back so I brought in Rojo and de Bock for reasonable fees although Rojos agent still owns 45% iirc. The free transfers were just signed for tutoring the youngsters. Eredivisie The league campaign has been pretty straightforward so far. The only 2 losses came at home against Zwolle(1:0) and away to Utrecht(3:0) The Cups We beat AZ 1:0 in the Super Cup to win our first trophy of the season and we`re through to the quarters of the Dutch Cup by beating WKE(5:2), Telstar(3:0) and Zwolle(4:0). The Champions League however was a lot tougher as we finished third behind Juventus and Man Utd and ahead of Viktoria Plzen. So now we will face Basel in the Euro Cup. Players & Tactics Here is my preffered tactic with my first team. The players have been performing pretty well so far. Only Viktor Fischer has been performing below expectations. My best players at the moment are: Rodrigo Gomez with 5 goals and 18 assists in 23 appearances Kolbeinn Sigporsson with 16 goals and 3 assists in 13(2) appearances until he broke his leg and will now probably miss the rest of the season and Bojan with 12 goals and 5 assists in 12(9) appearances Future Transfers As I feel DM is the weakest part of my team I have arranged transfers for Oscar Lewicki, a 21 year old from Häcken for 230k and for Alexander Milosevic, a 21 year old from AIK for 350k. Thanks for reading.
  10. I have conceded this exact goal 5 times in 9 matches this season and I just don't know how to stop it. This is my setup for defending FKs: 4x Man 3x Wall(although that doesn't work from that far out) 2x far post and 1x near post I've also tried having 2 on go back and one forward instead of having them on the posts but it doesn't seem to make a difference. Any help on stopping or reducing this would be appreciated.
  11. Yes he is home grown. You can check in the player search. Just add the conditions name and home grown status. If the player shows up he is home grown
  12. Season review 2012/13 I decided to do one last save on FM13 and chose Arsenal for this as I wanted to manage Özil and I have been impressed by Giroud IRL lately. These were my signings http://imageshack.us/a/img208/6092/kk9w.png league The league was quite easy as we only lost 4 away matches against Chelsea, Sunderland, Southampton and Newcastle. We actually won 18 out of 19 home matches, an unlucky draw against Man Utd costing us our perfect home record. http://imageshack.us/a/img856/4337/8ds0.png champions league The champions league started of with a 10-1 aggregate win against portuguese side P. Ferreira. This led to a group with PSG, At. Madrid and Red Bull Salzburg. We won all 3 home matches and the match in Salzburg to top the group with 12 points ahead of PSG and Madrid with 11 apiece. Next up was Real Madrid. We beat them 2:0 at the Bernabeu before losing 2:1 at home. After this we once again met PSG. In the first leg at home we got a quick 2:0 lead within 10 minutes before Cabaye scored in the 53rd minute to make us a little nervous. However two goals in the 75th and 79th minutes once again gave us a nice lead only for Ibrahimovic get a second away goal with two minutes to go. The second leg was very nervy as we had been dominating but second half goals by Schneiderlin and Ibrahimovic gave PSG the lead on away goals. Then in the 81st minute Podolski missed a penalty but luckily scored from the rebound and Giroud scored another 5 minutes later to put us through safely. The semi final was pretty straightforward as we dominated Juventus and won 3:0 at home and drew 1:1 away in a rather dull match. This put us through to the final whoch you can see below. http://imageshack.us/a/img809/3139/6j19.png cups A decent run in the C1C but a disappointing year in the FA Cup. http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/6/u2jx.png squad ratings A lot of brilliant performances by the players. Baines was fantastic as a Winger attack from the ML position with Giroud, Özil and Walcott building an impressive attacking triangle ahead of him. Mertesacker was also extremely dangerous whenever he got forward, scoring from corners, freekicks and even throw-ins. http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/580/039d.png/
  13. Looking at his stats he's quick can dribble and finish. So it may be worth selecting him as a target man with run onto ball in the team instructions.
  14. I'm looking for a Coloccini partner/replacement and would like him to be home grown. These are the two I've had offers accepted for, I've also tried Tomkins, Shawcross and Chalobah but they are all too expensive Buying: Player Name: Phil Jones Your Team: Newcastle Seller: Man Utd Player's Value: 8.75m Offer: 9.25m now + 7m over 24 months/63k wages Transfer/Wage Budget: 24.5m/137k Patch: latest Season: january of second season or Buying: Player Name: Steven Caulker Your Team: Newcastle Seller: Tottenham Player's Value: 4.6m Offer: 8.5m/40.5k wages Transfer/Wage Budget: 24.5m/137k Patch: latest Season: january of second season
