  1. Cristian Pavón can be signed for just over £3m and he's incredible (FM Touch). Matías Vargas is another. Both are wingers and they're fantastic.
  2. Is there any stuff out there for FM Touch? I've just bought FM Touch 19, and the training is, as you'd expect, slimmed down from the full game. There's only one type of squad training (the general stuff like defence, attack etc.) and the control of an individual player's training.
  3. 'Ruin' the previous 30 pages? Full of nonsense as well
  4. I don't think the back three is something that should continue tbh. I know I'm going to get 'but who we played doesn't matter!!!!11' nonsense, but unfortunately you do have to look at it. And the back three barely worked against that lot, let alone the first half-decent pseudo top tier nation England faced. I think it suits a very select group of the squad. So some look like top players in it, and others look rubbish.
  5. Not for everyone. Which is why you get the people here gloating.
  6. How strong are Croatia mentally? Absolute granite. Got to respect that * Go behind in all three knockout games * Play 120 minutes in all knockout games, still have more energy than England * Miss a late penalty against Denmark, beat them on penalties * Concede a late equaliser to Russia, beat them on penalties as well
  7. Why is Pivaric not holding that in the corner? And why is Badelj giving England a set piece ffs :D
  8. I know fresh legs in midfield will always help, but taking someone like Modric off, who can take the ball under pressure as well as anyone, doesn't strike me as a great idea when you're going to be backs to the wall
  9. Chill, England fans. Theres a good 13-14 mins left to score. There will be chances. Multiple chances. Croatia will be edgy and will now just defend. Make the fact they're under pressure count, build it around their area etc. They conceded late vs. Russia
  10. For all their domination, Belgium haven't created much. It's been great to watch, but how many chances have come from it? France have had more or less all the good ones
  11. Two really odd systems. No way you can say Belgium is a 'classic' 4-3-3 when you use your eyes and look at where their players are. Chadli is playing super high, Vertonghen is barely crossing halfway and playing more like a left central defender in a three. Hazard is floating around as left wing back but isn't really sticking to it Edit: now I see 4-3-3. They change completely with the ball
  12. They didn't even play with wingbacks last time. Kind of interested to see what he does. Just sticking Lukaku further to the right again probably won't work.
  13. Should probably wait at least one more tournament before declaring a new dawn for England's team
  14. Saw a great tweet earlier, that since 1982 there's been an Inter player in every World Cup final. And Croatia are the only ones left with Inter players in their squad
  15. He might have done had he not been injured three months before the tournament
  16. Neymar didn't play a minute of football from end of Feb until.....May? I think he played again in one of Brazil's warmup games. Pretty clear he won't be match sharp, even if he's medically fit and fine. Given that I think he did a pretty decent job. Far worse players than Neymar at this competition who went into it with no issues whatsoever
  17. I can't pick Brazil anymore Still think England will make the final, but will lose to whoever they play. That said, I think Croatia will enjoy playing England more than Denmark and Russia. England will play, those two just put everyone behind the ball
  18. Swear they were going to bring on Pjaca before Vrsaljko went down
  19. So long as he can move a bit, you have to keep Subasic on. 35% save rate on penalties is ridiculous. And they would have seen his efforts vs. Denmark
  20. Kalinic. But I think they'll keep him in if he can move OK
