  1. It's currently not possible to see other teams transfer history from previous years only the current one and would be good to back through their transfers over the years. Selecting all the players in your squad to rest them is a chore to say the least and would save a lot of time and ease frustration if there was a way to "select all" for example
  2. So my first season with Tranmere we pretty dire if I'm honest. After a flying start of 5 wins from 6 league games including some of the big boys we then knocked Newcastle out of the Carabao cup and went on to beat Doncaster 1-0 in a controlled performance the week after. It went downhill from here winning just 1 game in my next 20 (yes TWENTY) in all competitions including a 1-0 FA Cup first roun defeat at home to Stevenage. A major formation and system change helped me only lose 3 of my remaining games finishing 14th come end of the season. A lot of players who didnt impress, youngsters and ageing players left leaving me with just 15 first teamers so a major rebuild is required, low finances my hamper this rebuild so I think a few seasons of money making may be needed in order to push on. Lets see what happens!!
  3. Great result against a strong Newcastle squad in Carabao Cup 2nd round. And I've drawn Everton away in the 3rd round!
  4. Been a long time admirer of this thread but never been able to participate due to my laptop speed being so slow and the time I have to play meaning I could only complete around 2 seasons in the hole time the games are out before moving on to the latest edition. Decided to buy a Nintendo Switch to be able to play more often and do more seasons so cant wait for tonight to be able to finally start a save with my club, Tranmere, and see where this save can go! Hopefully have as much fun and luck as you guys have had!
  5. Thanks dude, definitely something I'm looking to do as feel I will get a lot more time to play it then, hope it's all still as satisfying even on the the switch!!
  6. Hi I'm looking into getting touch for the switch due to limited time to play, can you get this on the switch lite before I splash out on getting one? Thanks!
  7. Doing by far my most favourite save for years on football manager - West Brom 1st season we ran away with the league setting records for most points, wins and goals and also reaching the Carabao cup final only to be beaten by Liverpool. 2nd season in the prem I finished 6th and won the FA cup getting sweet revenge on Liverpool beating them 2-0 and qualifying for Europe. Now in the summer of 3rd season with no games played building my squad. In the first season I signed Ruben Blanco in goal for £3.5m and I have just accepted a bid from PSG for him for around £50m which is unbelievable, just think I will find replacing him hard! Made some more fantastic signings during the last 2 season but this summer I have signed Moise Kean for £16.5m who I know I won't keep for long and I have basically brought him to make some serious profit but hopefully whilst he is here he can make us a stronger side. Bring on the Europa League!!
  8. Kevin Cannavo from Palermo - playing very very well for my WBA side in the prem and he's young with good potential
  9. Arjen van der Heide cost £2.5m at the start of the first season and done well in the U19's until being called up to the first team due to injuries to my wingers and made the bench coming off it 4 times to score 3 goals playing as an IFs on either wing looks a real talent with a lot of potential
  10. That's the thing, I'm really not sure! I presume it would mean any kind of set piece wether it be a corner or a free-kick by your own corner flags? Be interesting to see what kind of set pieces you win more of and where abouts on the pitch
  11. Playing a control tactic and really am keeping the ball well and moving it round how I want but my team is essentially land of the giants so would having 'play for set pieces' selected effect how I want to play much? I want to keep playing how I am but win a lot more set pieces. Would select it to give it a go but I'm in real good form so don't want to affect it
  12. Being able to choose and change different tactics for different phases of play is there any indication you will be able to set different formations during these phases too?
  13. business so far up until the first game of the championship season, no real big names or signings just more depth into my squad which is what I feel I needed most. got a lot of players for free as you can see but all under 23 and can be used to grow into first teamers or just to be sold on in future for some profit. stand out so far has been Rafael Barbosa who really has impressed me in pre-season. didn't manage to offload as many as I would have liked but I did get rid of some of the older players and hardly renewed any expiring contracts. had a decent pre season too - no real tests with big teams but the wins should do good for the teams confidence!
  14. Hi all Spent a good while reading all your posts and it really made me want to start my own and very first LLM save with how well you've all done and how much fun it sounds! I started with Wigan as they are one of the closest sides to me and I don't enjoy playing as the team I support, Tranmere Rovers, so decided on a league club. I wanted to get the first season all finished ASAP to make headway into recruiting for the championship and really flew through the first season winning the league but not without a struggle at first. Found deciding on a formation to really fit my team and my style of play quite hard but I finally got there with a sort of asymmetric 4-5-1. The only permanent signing I made was Francisco Trincao for £500k. Looking forward to this first transfer window in the championship but I think it might e a bit of a struggle. Will post screenshots etc when the window is closed Good luck all!
  15. I felt the same until I started and played a few games. Sold Moreno to Monaco for 22m and replaced him with Zeca for 10m but Robertson has been fantastic for me and so has Lovren and TAA. I brought in De Ligt and play him alongside Lovren who has also done very well. You may actually be surprised by a few of the players on this game
