  1. Ryan Sessegnon definitely worth a look. Just picked him up for £7m at the start of the 3rd season.
  2. Tagliafico well worth a look. Will develop into a quality LB.
  3. Didn't get Kante in the end, didn't want to move to a lower rep club, heh. Enjoy finishing 10th at Chelsea. My big signing was instead Joshua Kimmich from Bayern. On stupid wages, something like 170k a week, but looks incredible, especially for his age. Now means I have the Kimmich-Barkley-Horta midfield of dreams. Loving this squad so much.
  4. Just finished my 2nd season and what a season it was. Started okay, was sat 4th after 15 games but after that the guys put the accelerator down and we went on an incredible run. Lost a couple of key games, but this is how the season finished: Unbelievable really. We were bang average in the first season so to come back and win the league in the 2nd is ridiculous. The key was our attacking. We were incredible going forward. Moussa Dembele was the signing of the season. Took a few games to get going, but here is his record at the end of the season: He swept up every award other than top scorer (that was won by Icardi for Arsenal). He won Footballer of the Year, Young Player of the Year, Players Player and Players Young Player. Another superstar signing was Andre Horta. He was absolutely superb as an Attacking Playmaker in the centre of midfield. Season average rating of 7.52 with 6 goals and 7 assists and then he went to the 2018 World Cup with Portugal and absolutely dominated. Won Player of the Tournament and the Golden Boot with 5 goals, this kid is going to be the best player on the game in 2 years, no doubt. His partnership with Barkley was a joy to watch. Not made many signings going into the next season as of yet. Depay has gone back to United after his loan spell so replaced him with the free transfer signing of Dries Mertens and then replaced the out of contract Aaron Lennon with Adnan Januzaj (also on a free). Have my eye on N'Golo Kante to add some more depth to the DMC position but looking unlikely that he's going to be interested.
  5. Agreed, it is an awful lot of money, but my scouts rate him incredibly highly with immense potential. He's already performing too, 7.28 average rating from from his first 12 appearances. Playing the long game with him, reckon by 2020 he'll be one of the best midfielders in the game. We shall see! Just got a board confidence update through so thought I'd check what they think of my Transfer Activity and they mentioned something about Belotti's performances for Bayern mean the club should regret selling him. So thought I'd have a little look and see how he's getting on, and oh wow. 6 games, 10 goals, 2 assists, average rating of 8.12. If he'd done that for me I wouldn't have sold him, got half as many goals as that for me in 28 apperances!
  6. Into my second season now and I made some big summer moves, selling on 7 players for £85m before spending £84m strengthening the team. I sold: Gerard Deulofeu to Man Utd for £27.5m (rising to £39m) - Didn't want to sell but the offer was too good and he wanted out. Niasse - £3.2m to Bastia Muhammed Besic - £4.4m to Marseille Brendan Galloway - £1.8m to Wolves Andrea Belotti - £45m to Bayern - Again, didn't really want to sell but the offer was just too good to resist and he wasn't amazing first season. I'll take the profit. I then strengthened the side bringing in: Christian Espinoza - £6.75m from Villarreal: Straight replacement for Deulofeu - pacy, technical winger with good crossing and dribbling Mohammed Elyounoussi - £7m (rising to £8.75m) from Basel: Was weak on winger back-ups last season so another talented, pacy winger Youri Tielemans - £17.25m from Anderlecht: A staple of FM saves. Gives a bit of extra creativity in the midfield and is a potential superstar Moussa Dembele - £9m from Celtic: Replacement for Belotti, young, talented striker to rotate with Lukaku Mauricio Lemos - £6.75m from Las Palmas: A defender brought in to inject some youth into an ageing centre of defence. Lemos is very highly rated with huge potential Memphis Depay - Loan from Utd: Injuries to Bolasie, Espinoza, Elyounoussi and Lennon meant I needed an emergency winger. Depay was available on loan and fit the bill perfectly Rafik Zekhnini - £1.3m from Odd: Yet another winger, but this time a very young one. Zekhnini comes very highly rated and is a definite one for the future Andre Horta - £32.5m from Benfica: Biggest signing of the window, Horta was bought in on Deadline Day as I had a bit of cash spare and wanted another wonderkid. Comes very highly rated, has amazing all-round stats for a 20 year old and looks set to become a sure-fire superstar of world football. Delighted with that signing. So, with those transfers made, this is now my strongest XI: Loving that line-up and have very good depth in so many positions. Started well too, sitting in 4th after 10 games. Might not be title contenders this season, but with the amount of young talent in the squad I'd be amazed if 2 years down the line we weren't a Champions League team. Really excited to see how Horta develops. I hope we get to keep him for a good few seasons before he demands a move to one of the big boys, as he could end up being one of the best players in the game. In Donnarumma, Lemos, Horta and Dembele we've potentially got the best players in their respective positions in 5 years time, some incredible young talent.
  7. This guy, Domagoj Vida is superb. Bought for £11m Dynamo Kyiv in the first season he's been one of the best defenders in the PL. Can play all across the back 4 and as a DM but is best either at CB or RB. Has superb physical stats, is strong in a lot of the mental stats you need to be a top defender and then has good heading, marking and tackling to go with it. If you're looking for a versatile defender in any of the top leagues, Vida is your guy. Been so impressed with him. His value has sky rocketed too, so a good player to make some decent profit off.
  8. I've started as Everton on FM Touch (standard FM doesn't run quick enough for my liking on my PC) and loving it. Bought in a couple of key signings at the start of the first season bringing in Donnarumma for £18m, Belotti for £12m and probably my best signing - Domagoj Vida for £11m. Vida is one of the best players I've used on this years FM. He's an incredibly versatile defender that can play anywhere across the back 4 with his natural position being CB. He has excellent physical stats, coupled with strong heading, marking and tackling, a great work-rate and determination, he's brave, he's a good leader and his positioning is superb. His value has sky-rocketed up from the £11m transfer fee to £21m and there is already interest coming from City. Definitely worth a look if you're on the hunt for a defender. 2/3 of the way through the 1st season and it's been a successful one so far. Won the League Cup to guarantee European football for next season and currently sat 7th in the league. Top 4 are currently United-Tottenham-Arsenal-Southampton with Liverpool in 5th, City in 6th and Chelsea one spot below me in 8th. Looking likely I'll finish in my current position of 7th, which TBH, I'm happy with. We've had 1 bad run of results, which if we can avoid that next season we could easily manage Top 4. So as it stands my strongest XI is: ----------------------------Donnarumma-------------------------- ---Coleman-------Vida----------Jagielka-----------Oviedo---- -------------------------------Gueye------------------------------------- --------------------McCarthy--------Barkley--------------------------- -----Deulofeu-----------------------------------------Bolasie------------ --------------------------Lukaku/Belotti---------------------------------- Only real surprise there is Oviedo in at left back. I started the season with Baines, but he picked up an injury and Oviedo filled in and was superb. From his 10 starts he has an average rating of 7.45 with 2 assists and a goal compared with Baines who's averaging 7.00 with no assists and 2 goals from penalties. Oviedo's been class.
  9. Started as Orient the other day. Been meaning to start a lower league save after thoroughly enjoying my Morecambe save on last years game. This year I went with a team that I have had a liking for for years. My Grandad is a big Orient fan so made sense as an option for this years game. Had an excellent first season. Won the league by 7 points over Portsmouth. Mason Bennett came in on loan and led the line superbly in rotation with Jay Simpson. I used a tactic I've used for a number of teams on this years game which looks like: -----------------------SK--------------------------- WB--------------CB---------CB------------WB--- ---W-------------AP---------DLP----------------- -----------------------SS------------------IF----- -----------------------AF-------------------------- Been incredibly successful. Played some excellent football. The wing-backs were key to the formation and Clohessy and Shaw did an excellent job for me. I've bought in Bakayogo on a free in the summer of the 2nd season to provide back-up to Shaw, but reckon Shaw will be good enough to cut it in L1, he was superb in L2 for me. Have also re-signed Bennett for the 2nd season. He's a great signing for League 2 as Derby require nothing to take him on loan, no monthly contribution and no wage percentage, perfect. Also managed to secure Payne on a permanent deal too which seems like an excellent piece of business. Excited to get my 2nd season going.
  10. Despite all the talk in here - I've found Valencia to be absolutely boss at MR on this years game. When Son's not starting Valencia has filled in superbly there.
  11. Name: Son Heung-Min Age: 23 Nationality: Korean Club: Spurs Position: MR (best position) but can also play AMR/AML/ST/ML Value: Around £25m Sale Value: Around £45m Level of team suited for: Top teams Work Permit Needed?: Not sure - don't think he needed one - got it easily if he did Incredible player. Best player I've used on this years game.
  12. - Son Heung Min - Enzo Roco - Mayke - Youri Tielemans - Luan
  13. I use a 4-2-3-1 but with an AML IF on one side and an MR on the other. Works an absolute treat. Son's a beast at MR W(A). Would also allow you to get the best out of Valencia if you've still got him if Son picks up an injury.
  14. Anyone used much of Zach Clough? Just signed him for United in the 3rd season after being impressed with his all-round stats. Had started the 3rd season with a bang for Villa scoring 6 in 4 and on debut for me has added 2 more. Scouts suggest he has good potential, he's physically very good, good determination and work rate, and technically he's definitely good enough. Worth a look early in the game if you can develop him yourselves for a few seasons.
  15. Do it. He's the best player I've used on the game. Don't play him as an Inside Forward though. Play him as a RM (not an AMR) set to W(A). He's superb. Signed him in January of the 2nd season, scored 8 got 7 assists in 15 games with 8 MOTM awards. Won Footballer of the Year, Fans' Player of the Year and had an average rating over 8. He's great.
