  1. I brought Pavon for 3m and sold him in January 2020 for 63m to Liverpool. Absolute beast of a player. Other youngsters i'd recommend but may not get a permit is Dramy (ST for Copenhagen) and Markovic (CB at Partizan)
  2. Morosini from Brescia is a good youngster to look at. May take 3-4 seasons before you see his full potential but is good at the role.
  3. Funnily enough I sold him 1st season to Watford for 2m with a loan back but after being 7 seasons in, he really didn't improve much and ended up in the Albainian Leagues. Ibrahimi just didn't develop and got released. He's in the Albainian leagues too.
  4. It's highly possible that could be the case. I think i'll have to load up both Spanish and Brazilian leagues to take a deeper look. His stats didn't look too bad though either.
  5. Seem to remember on last years FM there was a wonderkid Brazilian called Paulo Victor, was starting a new save and actually seen him playing for a 3rd division Spanish side. Think it was Ibiza or Marbella or something. What the hell happened there?
  6. When you go to make a bid on someone it does usually highlight if you have a vacant spot or not. Will help with future transfers.
  7. All this talk of Serie A being too easy for a surprise team winning it is bewildering to me. I've just finished my 6th season with Brescia and had my best finish with them and that's a 7th place. Such a competitive league, the title has also been changing hands between Juve, AC Milan and Napoli.
  8. I had 10 seasons with Sochaux on last years FM. Have great youth facilities and produce some good re-gens.
  9. His stats are really good I mean probably one of the best midfielders on the game. You won't get much in terms of goals and assists but I played him as a DM (DLP) and he just constantly controlled the game and started the attacks off with great passing.
  10. Finished my 3rd season with Brescia and finished 12th in Serie A. I always seem to have one of the best defences in the league but usually always the worst attacking record. For both my seasons in Serie A my top goal scorer has scored 7 league goals and that's not even from a striker. Start of season 4 given a budget of 10m. Wasn't great as had to buy a new RB, CB and in desperate need of a goal scorer. Really didn't want to rely on the loan market as want to try build my own team. Sandro Tonali had interest in him from Juventus and Liverpool, I managed to stop him from wanting to leave for the past 3 seasons but this time I just couldn't talk him around. He wanted champions league football and I couldn't offer that. Juve bided and we negotiated a deal of 53m up from with 10m in instalments and 30% of profit on next deal. Just like that he was gone and I now had a 50m budget with 300k spare wages. As much as I wanted to keep Tonali I knew it was the right decision to cash in and start building a better rounded squad. Some notable signings I got were Claud Adjapong, Antonio Marin, Gil Diaz & Borja Mayoral. Played the first 3 games of the season and can already see that there is more goal scoring potential in the team.
  11. Just managed to buy Marin at the start of season 4 with Brescia. He's not got the stats I thought he would have but still looks a very useful player for the Serie A. Cost me 15m straight cash.
  12. Started a new save with Brescia with this winter update. Was hoping to be a challenging team but try and build something for a real push for promotion next season. 1st season signed Nabil Jaadi on a free and Marco Perrotta from Spal. Sold Ndoj to Watford for 2m and future clauses plus loaned him back for the season. Ended up having a very good season and won the title by 6 points. Got Tonali and Viviani tied down to new deals for the next 4 years and they look to be content with staying thank god. In terms of improving the team it was mostly done with loans due to a 4m transfer budget and 60k spare in wages for Serie A. Got Matt Miazaga, Ola Aina, Cheik Keita, Rolando Aarons, Diogo Goncalves & Moises Kean on loan. Signed Rivaldo Coetzee and and a CM from Sporting Lisbon who looks great and only cost me 34k. Can't remember his name though. Also purchased a Portugese RB for 200k called Costinho and he looks and is playing incredibly. First 5 games of Serie A: Perugia (a) - Won 2-0. Spal (H) - Won 1-0. Palermo (A) - Draw 0-0. Frosinone (A) - Draw 0-0. Parma (H) - Won 1-0. As you can see probably the best first 5 fixtures we can get and on a good run with an unbeaten streak and not conceded. Next 5 games are going to be very difficult though as we go against Juventus, Inter, Atalanta, Roma & Lazio. Will really see what we're made off in them games.
  13. No screenshots now as it's a save I deleted. I started with Coventry as one of my first saves. They did have new ownership in my 2nd season but it wasn't a tycoon or anything. They just came in a restructured the debts. If it wasn't for getting premier league football I don't think I would have been able to cope. Upon getting promoted in the first season to the championship, they actually lowered my wage budget. I would say you probably have a window of 3-4 seasons to try get to the premier league and bolster the finances or be very savy in the transfer market and make a lot on player sales. No easy task though either way.
  14. Into my 3rd season now with Ebsjerg. Had some really good youth prospects come through that i'm trying to develop. 1st season finished 10th and lost in the European place qualifier. 2 season ended up finishing 6th on the last game of the season so made the championship group where I climbed to 5th and won the European place qualifier. Quite strange but in the 3rd season the league goes back to a 12 team league which splits into a bottom 6 and top 6 grouping. Pretty much operating the same as SPL. I have actually bent my own rules and it is not a fully HG only challenge as I did buy Kristian Riis following his loan spell for 750K. I seen no way of us being able to stay up without him and felt like he was one of our own after 1 season. I also purchased an 18 year old Senegalese AMC for 60k. I wanted to have a new system but needed an AMC so said I would allow myself to buy one as long as it's now more than 100k and they are 18 or younger. Still waiting on that superstar youth player to come through at the moment. Have a GK and ST that are both 16 and look like they could be something special so keeping my fingers crossed that they pan out.
  15. Just started a Youth only save in Denmark with Ejsberg. Got to start of January and already 2 young players has gone as offers were too good. One was not home grown from the club and was 20 year old Romanian Striker Adrian Petre. Started off really well but didn't really play much after my first 8 games due to poor form. Sold him to Hambury in a deal worth 2.5m. Also had to let go of a young DM/CM Sorenson (think that's his name). Lots of bids coming in and he was kicking off that I wasn't accepting. He went to Stoke in the end for a 2.8m deal with us loaning him for the remaining of this season and the whole of next season. Shame he had to go as he is HG. Some really good home grown talent in this team and i'm looking forward to the intake. Like the league structure as it gives every one a chance to qualify for Europe. I'm currently 9th halfway through the season.
  16. No need now. Finished 5th, had Brentofrd playoff semi's and beat them 6-4 on aggregate then had Cardiff in the Final. 2 down at half time but came back to win 3-2. Managed to sign Galloway on a free. Wage budget went from 90k to 350k with a 36mil budget. Only have 4 or 5 players in the squad that might be able to make the step up to the Prem so just squad rebuilding at the moment.
  17. Having some fun with Coventry City at the moment. Was hoping to just stay in league one in the first season with them being in a very rocky financial position and a large amount of debt to pay off. Affiliate partnership with Arsenal and some of their youngsters on loan helped me finish 2nd and win promotion. Going into the first season in Championship I was just hoping we didn't get embarrassed due to having no money to spend still and the lowest wage budget in the league with 80k a week, above us in the table was Luton who has 120K. That extra 40k would have been contracts for around 8-10 players in my squad. Currently 37 games into the league and we're doing really well sitting in 6th place. Can't imagine us getting a playoff place as last 9 games are against all the top teams in the league so would be difficult, earlier in the season when I had this run of fixtures it turned into 10 games without a win. Managed to keep hold of my top players but don't know how long for they have been: Brendan Galloway - Had on loan in league one and this season. He's wanted by Fulham now so can't see me having him for next year. Jordan Willis - Steadily improving player and captain of the side. Had no bids for him as yet so hope it stays that way. Brandon Mason - Great young LB can see clubs coming in for him soon enough. Gedion Zelium - Signed on a free after a loan spell in League One from Arsenal. Real good DLP for the championship. Jody Jones - This kid will be a Premier League footballer in my save weather that be with me or another team. 10 goals & 10 assists in league one now in championship as 11 goals & 13 assists. Great Inside forward on the right side. Connor Chaplin - Only player to have money spent on in my time here and that's because it was pre-arranged. Great shadow striker and can score some spectacular goals. Jordi Hiwula - Really didn't think he'd amount to much but was my top goalscorer of league one with 20 league goals and currently our top goalscorer in the Championship with 16 goals. Had interviews with West Ham and Everton but declined both roles and used them as leverage to get a new contract and a bit more wage budget. Hoping to get the team more financially stable and plough on to the Prem.
  18. I did a season with them on the Beta. I'd say try your best to keep Aidoo, Screciu, Malinovskyi & Trossard. I know the finances are pretty bleak for them so may have to be case of selling up and rebuilding. I'd recommend trying to buy Mlakar from Maribor. Cheap and can put the ball in the back of the net.
  19. Started an Udinese save over the weekend. Thought I would take advantage of the Watford partnership and buy some of their players for £0. Turns out the wages on offer at Udinese are not very high and ended up not signing anyone. Signings in first window were Assane Gnoukouri (Free), Mihai Balasa (FCSB), Bart Nieuwkoop (Feyenoord). Not very good signings in the end, Assane looks to be the one i'll probably keep around. Needed some depth in my defence so had to go for the cheaper options. First season started pretty bad was hovering around relegation places up until January. No signings made in January and went on a good run from then on going 11 matches unbeaten. Finished quote strong and came in 9th place which I though was great. Rodrigo De Paul went at the end of the season unfortunately to Schalke for 22.5m. Couldn't turn that type of money down. Brought Dominik Prokop for 10m to replace him. Was looking to take advantage of the Watford relationship but then all of a sudden a news article come in to say the partnership has changed due to Watford increasing in size and they are now the parent company. Meaning they can take my players from now on for nothing(they haven't taken advantage of this yet). Team going into the 2nd season: GK - Scuffet/Musso DR - Ter Avest/ Nieuwkoop DL - Samir/ Pezzella DC - Issa Diop (On Loan) / Vicari (6m buy from Spal) / Balasa / Ekong-Troest MC- Mondragora / Fofona / Giulio Maggiore (Brought for 3m from Spezia) / Balic / Gnoukouri AMR - Pussetto / Lombardi (5m from Lazio) AMC - Prokop / Leonardo Morosini (4m from Brescia) AML - Machis / Nicola Sansone (3.5m from Villereal) ST - Lasagna / Vizeu / Gabriel Barbosa (On Loan) Still think my defence needs big improvements. Pussetto is a player i'd recommend for anyone being a top team to buy. Played as an AMR Winger (Support) last season and scored 11 and assisted 11.
  20. Just started a save with Edinburgh City. Yes you are in the bottom Scottish division where the standard is poor but they are actually a good team to start with. Finances are decent with around 400k bank balance (Are predicted to lose money over the years but player sales and better sponsorship could stop that). A club that are only in their 2nd season of the Scottish football league after playing in the Highland Leagues so the history of the club is pretty much a blank canvas. One downside is that they are semi pro at the moment.
  21. For a European adventure may be worth looking at Fredrikstad in Norwegian 3rd division, former top league team that has fallen down the leagues. Got a good stadium and facilities and also got finnish international Sakari Matilla there who is way too good for that level aswel as a few more players too good for that level.
  22. I hope so because I can't imagine De Ligt staying much longer.
  23. I think with the injuries it makes them look a little thin on the ground. Long term injuries to Veltman, Sinkgraven & Bande at the start. Plus only 2 natural strikers in Dolberg and Huntelar. Also only 1 out and out left back unless you use Wober or Blind as cover. I did have injuries occur to Neres and Dolberg in my save so does make the squad look even thinner. Managed to bring in a LB Mads Pedersen and Koopimuen (Not sure on the spelling but young CM/CB from AZ). and Antonia Marin. Still searching for a young striker to bring in as want Sierhuis to get more games in for Jong Ajax. Think youre right with using the Jong players if needed would help a lot but i'm looking to give them all a bit more experience elsewhere this season with a view to calling upon most of them next season. The only one I called up straight away was Per Shuurs.
  24. Started my save off last night. De Ligt had a bid from Bayern rejected then he kicked off. Agreed I would transfer list him. Now I've got the likes of Watford and Huddersfield making £5m bids for him when I've set his asking price as £40m. Just don't get it. The bigger clubs have made a bid but it's usually a non negotiable deal worth up to £7m. Didn't realise how much the squad lacks depth, yes they're are some good youngsters in the B Team to call upon but I prefer to send them out on loan to be playing more regularly.
  25. Advanced Forward is what I used for him too. Did have a little mess around with trying to get him as a pressing forward but wasn't as effective.
