  1. Coates will wear number 16 for Liverpool btw. Confirmed on club site.
  2. Coates has signed for Liverpool from Nacional. http://www.liverpoolfc.tv/news/latest-news/coates-joins-liverpool
  3. Not seen it posted already but Insua has left Liverpool and signed a 5 year deal with Sporting Lisbon. http://www.liverpoolfc.tv/news/latest-news/insua-leaves-liverpool
  4. Don't know if it's been mentioned already but Alberto Aquilani has been handed the number 15 shirt for the coming season. http://www.liverpoolfc.tv/team/first-team/player/15-alberto-aquilani
  5. Well, a disappointing season on the domestic front. Finished 6th in the league and knocked out in the FA Cup 5th Round. However, won the league cup and then this. Employed a 3-5-2 formation in the final and tried to "do an Inter" and it worked. Sat deep, only closed down in own half, went in hard and closed down Milito in CB and Masch at DM to pressure them into making a mistake or losing discipline. Had counter attack set and fired balls into Carrolls head at every opportunity. It helped that Reina had a blinder as well, so Champs League footie again next year, as holders! Didn't expect that!
  6. Just got back onto my Liverpool save after a while off. Morale was ridiculously low after 3 straight losses, No Carroll or Suarez or Hazard as all injured. Gerrard only days back and lacking fitness. Was 1-0 down from first leg against R. Madrid when this happened at Anfield.
  7. Carroll TM and Suarez Poacher seems to be working best for me. I'd give Lukaku a season as back up then maybe use him to replace Carroll in the TM role. Tactics wise, I tend to switch between 5-3-2 with Wing-backs, 4-3-3 and 4-2-3-1 Wide.
  8. 7 games in to season 2, just lost my first game 1-0 to Wolves. Renan was sent off and despite bossing we just couldn't score. Still 4th for the time being. Not a catastrophe as Man U lost to Bolton and Arsenal to Birmingham, 4 points off top.
  9. Just started season 2. Transfers of note: Also have Lukaku joining at the end of the season for £6m, couldn't do it now as injured for a couple of months, AC Milan were sniffing too. Good start to the season, beating Chelsea 1-0 in Community Shield with Carroll scoring, haven't given up hope with him yet but he has to do better than the 5 goals he got last season.
  10. Season of disappointment in the end. Finished runner up in the league. Lost the FA Cup Final End of season stats
  11. Into April of season 1. Sitting 3rd in league, into FA Cup final against Chelsea. 2nd leg of Europa quarter-final to play against City, lost 1-0 at Eastlands. 3 signings in Jan, Hazard for 17m, 8.5m (2.5m appearance fee after 20 games) for Wickham and Dennis Appiah for 4m. All turned out brilliantly, hopefully I can compete for title next season.
  12. Going steady still. 3rd in the league, 6 points behind Chelski with a game in hand. Came second in EURO group which has given me a tough draw against Valencia followed by Juve/Braga if I progress. FA Cup draw has been kind, drew Bristol Rovers. BTW, for anyone on 11.3, have Crawley had an increase? Seen them in FA Cup 3rd round for the first time in all my FM saves.
  13. Currently 4th in the league. Results: Stoke 1-1 (A) Fulham 1-1 (A) West Ham 3-1 (A) Galatasaray 2-0 (H)
  14. Beaten Wigan 1-0, OB 4-0 in EURO, draw 2-2 with Sunderland and an extremely satisfying 3-2 win over Utd at Anfield. Wound Fergie up by saying he would never challenge for title and Stevie went and got 3 assists, Luis (2) and Carroll with the finishes.
  15. Another loss in Europa, reserve's not as good as I expected, may need to play a few first teamers to progress now. Pain. 3-0 home win v Birmingham Suarez gets among goals at last with 2, OG from Foster although it was a Stevie free kick bounced off his back, needs fixing that really. 1 point off top 4. 4 off 1st. Not bad with no new signings (I have 1st window transfers off)
