  1. I always go for David Coles for assisstant manager. Him and Phil Cannon make great foundations for any English side!
  2. Very impressive thread, can't quite believe that Seb Giovinco is the second highest paid player, only $50k less than Kaka and more than all the other household names!
  3. Search: Age >19 + highlight stats for any player role and change them to like 11-12 and find 9/12 for example.. always seems to draw em out for me, just gotta increase your scouting networks!
  4. As you can see I finished 4th, pretty happy with that. Was solid all season and get the deserved champions league play off spot. Board was taken over, survived that, then they also agree to a 16,000 seat stadium expansion and to upgrade youth and training facilities! Wanyama had a £21.5m buy-out clause and had been bitching to leave for 2 whole years so i finally let him go and bought in the experience of Nigel De Jong, I like high determination and he will certainly provide experience. Kinda the same reason why i got Flanagan, need some depth at full back as it looks like Targett won't be much more than Championship quality despite getting 15 games a season so far, I have a 5* potential left back in the youth team but isn't ready to take over. John Stones is the main signing here.. £45m takes my whole initial starting budget of £52m with his fees. World class though and him and Shawcross could be quality for the season, Chambers could easily start at CB now, but I like my English back 5 of Forster; Chambers, Stones, Shawcross, Bertrand. Fonte leaves despite averaging 7.22 and being captain, his physicals started falling too fast, making Hause or McCarthy a more viable option. Finally I promoted Slattery to the first team and will look to give him more games. Seriously considering getting a new young DM to phase out H. Reed who unfortunately looks like he wont make the cut either. The aim this season has to be to integrating some more youth players, but the gap to the first team keeps increasing! Team looks something like that (GK P. Rajkovic & CM C. Slattery off screen also), though there's room for quite a bit of rotation and experiment. I'd like to move away from slow build up and structured but can't seem to get any success with out them!
  5. @Jamie: Thanks, I will try to keep it up. I have posted screenshot of how JWP has progressed for me, one of the most consistent performers for me spanning a few editions of fm now! @Welshace: Thanks! I have to stick to the Southampton way really. Dozzell is the one who could be push to be first team player. Ennis doesn't look great but staff reckon he can do something. Reed looks like he can become the English Clasie! I gave you Slattery as well because he looks class.
  6. In to my second season now and going to give posting some updates a go for the first time. I'll start by saying that I am a Southampton fan so player bias is definitely a factor in the early seasons for me.. Jose Fonte seems a bit underrated in my opinion, but I can't not play him. I could also never sell JWP or any of the English talents produced by Southampton. I am also going to attempt to bring a few back where possible. The first season was pretty disappointing initially, I decided not to improve the first team and get some English youth, Gray, Dozzell, Hause and Reed look particularly good. A poor start saw both Mane and Tadic demand to leave in January. £30m + £15m (I i got 5m already and about to get £10m for making 10 international appearances) for Mane and 12m for Tadic enabled me to buy some gems! Never really heard of Embolo before but when I saw he would join he signed straight away! I somehow managed to sign Odegaard as well for 11m, crazy. I also picked up Rajkovic who looks a great keeper and Chambers becomes the first returnee. Results picked up from January and it looked as though a 8-10th place finish was on the cards, then I managed lose the last 4 games and dropped to 11th. I also got this guy through the academy who I will look to convert to a F9. The second season started was a huge improvement. Van Dijk demanded to go and I happily obliged when Real Madrid agreed to a £25m + £5m bid! His defensive stats aren't even that good anyway.. Shawcross came in from a surprisingly relagated Stoke for a bargain. I picked up Januzaj to continue with my wonderkid shopping spree, also coming in are a few more youth players, though they will probably be back ups for a few years to generate profit! I spent most of the first half of the season in the top four and had a 6 game win streak without conceding. Fonte and Shawcross seem to be playing well together and Chambers is struggling to get a game at CB. A few bad games in January sees me drop down 7th to recently, though i have games in hand. Embolo has been on fire with 15 goals and 3 assists in 20 games. JWP has been the best player for me so far. Can't believe any one would consider selling, 9 goals and 11 assists in 21 games and 7 caps for England. Will post update at end of season/ after main transfers completed. If anyone wants any other screenshots let me know and I'll try to oblige, though I am a 3rd year science student! Will update after end of season and some transfers are done.
  7. Best of my first crop with Southampton. Thinking about retraining as a F9.
