  1. Hi @Rockywhu thanks for the feedback. Wilshere for me has declined over the years, sadly the injuries have not helped. I thought the few games he did play for us his passing was below par so lowered the rating accordingly. Perhaps he was not fully fit or a bit rusty. Hope to see more of his games (if he ever plays for us again) and will reassess his ratings. Fabianski is one of our top rated players, his command of area is suitable I feel and one on ones too. I increased his reflexes and other stats I thought relevant but the reality is I think we've only had 5 clean sheets this year (of course the defense have to take some blame too) so I didn't really feel that I could increase his stats too much. Whilst I do think he's been excellent this year and has been the best keeper we've had for a for a long while I'd still need to take a bit more time to look at him and then really look at the stats for the next update in the summer.
  2. Does he score for you? I signed him in my game but struggled to get him to play well? Ended up selling him, and still not doing very well for his new team.
  3. The Felipe Anderson transfer was an error, but has been fixed in the winter update
  4. Hi @Rockywhu Anderson's stats will definitely be reviewed in January. With new players, particularly those that come from other leagues, i won't amend the stats until I've had a chance to properly watch the player myself.
  5. More to do with CA restrictions as you say, plus he's had to morph from a winger to a striker so certain things like finishing, composure etc have increased (and rightly so). But thanks for pointing it out, those figures are on the low side so i will definitely reconsider them again come the winter update.
  6. Thanks @Sandeman for the comments, From what i observe he is quick, but his acceleration is perhaps not what it used to be. Once he gets to top speed though he can beat most defenders for pace but definitely not all. I agree with you re strength, he seems to be using his strength in a much more effective way this year as well. The data is locked now so we can't make any major changes to the game but i will definitely reconsider this for the winter update.
  7. I'm playing a similar game @Bilbaoboy, I'm in the 2019/2020 season and Andre Dozzell is awesome. Niall Ennis is a beast, but his mental stats are really letting him down.
  8. Hi Herne Did you document your west ham save? If so I'd be curious to see how it went!
  9. Thanks for all the feedback, definitely some helpful advice there. I suppose what's frustrating is that he asked for the transfer, so I don't actually want to sell him. We agreed that I would accept bids of £55 million and he was happy with that. But I haven't been receiving bids near that, the only bid was a non negotiable bid from Arsenal so I really didn't want to sell to a divisional rival. I've got about a month and a half until the Jan transfer window, hopefully I can change his mind about leaving by then!
  10. Does anyone else find that the fees we're expected to pay for players far more than the fees we can demand for our players? In my second season as Chelsea manager and wanted to sell Diego Costa who's listed as a world class striker and scored 25 goals in the previous season and valued at £35 million. I asked for £55 million for him (reasonable in today's transfer climate) however I only received non negotiable bids of £39 million. However when I try to buy a striker I'm expected to pay way above the odds. I had £110 million rejected for Dybala, had to big £96 million for a 28 year old Aubameyang (who didn't want to talk to me, ouch) and had to bid nearly £90 for Belotti. Is anyone else having similar situations? And if so are there any tips for increasing a players value in the transfer market?
  11. I started a game as AC Milan manager, but I forgot to add Italian as a second language. So naturally the press are asking me questions about the language barrier. Are you able to send yourself on an intensive language course like you can with new players/staff who don't speak the language?
  12. @herne79 yes I have heard about this, i will definitely try this in future and load the Chinese league for sure. And you're right we are blessed with good tutors, i think this has certainly helped with the development. And regarding Steve Potts, I'd have done the same! Haha
  13. How's everyone getting on with developing youngsters? The board make it a philosophy to develop youngsters through the academy. I've got Oxford, Joe Powell and Samuelson developing well and my coaches say Quina could be really good.
  14. I've never blocked the first transfer window before, but I may do in future games I start. It seems you can get a lot more money for players that way.
