    You can't put very attractive can you? it looks like arrogance. Put attractive... she'll see me.

  1. The opening post and potential signings inspired me to start a save as AZ Alkmaar Playing a formation suggested in the opening posts too, trying to get a 3-6-1 formation going. It's more of a 3-1-4-1-1 and it's great to watch. Still 2 games remaining of the first season and Ajax are already champions, we are already guaranteed 2nd place above PSV though. Actually signed Naci Unuvar from Ajax too who looks a great prospect.
  2. Won the league first season and then won the top league in our first season up too, 3 points ahead of Young Boys. There will be no champions league football in Lausanne though as we lost to Celtic in the final qualifying round, will have to make do with Europa. Signed quite a lot of players in season 3 as I thought there were some really cheap young players who were worth the risk of either developing for us or being loaned out and sold at a good profit. Squad now: GK: Loic Jacot - £150k from Luzern in Season 2, been an absolute bargain with several big sides now after him. We
  3. Yeah I had the same, there's a few players there you can make money from to bring your own players in though. I looked at selling anyone 30 or over and was able to sign the likes of Lotomba and Von Moos amongst others.
  4. On FM19 Rangers signed James Mclean on one of my saves
  5. Had a very enjoyable save with them on the last version, will be giving this another go. Cheers for the write up
  6. Fosu Mensah did end up joining as well as a couple more signings: Ben Woodburn (Liverpool) Brandon Williams (Man Utd) Also signed Joshua Zirkzee & Juan Castillo on loan and continued the loan of James Garner for a 3rd year, he's now actually agreed to be here next season on loan too.
  7. So after the sale of Hickey to Leicester for £7m I was a bit worried that our form would drop off after January but the likes of Tommy Smith actually did step up and we were never in any danger of throwing the league away. I was honestly expecting us to be good enough to stay up but not much more than that but players like Manquillo, Angel Gomes, Fosu Mensah and Pellegri added to the good young players already at the club were some how better than Palace (Still with Zaha) and an immense looking Newcastle squad for the level. So far to prepare for the Premier league I have signed the foll
  8. Sheffield Utd paid £7m for Dobra at the end of season 2 after a good half season at Port Vale and a few fixtures for me at the end of the season. A nice unexpected bonus. Gave El Mizouni game time too but also sold him but only for £1m. lankester did really well first half of the year at Newport so I recalled him in the hope he would get a league one move instead of league two, unfortunately it wasn't to be but he did even better at Scunthorpe at the same level. Thinking of maybe keeping him about as 3rd choice next year. Can't even think who Simpson is without looking at my save
  9. They got themselves rich Egyptian owners on my save, paying players £35k pw in League One
  10. We're about to see how good young Tommy Smith really is as the board just sold Aaron Hickey for £11m to Leicester on deadline day Things going unbelievably well in the CHampionship up until this point as we are currently top of the league, just hope it doesn't derail our season.
  11. Yeah the young one probably isn't ready really but it's nice to give him minutes when there are injuries/when the title was wrapped up. He managed 12 games in the league and 20 in total thanks to a quarter final run in that Johnstone Paint thing. A lot of them players I was trying to sell for ages but got nowhere, Scottish and American clubs eventually being my saviour for some decent fees. The board rejected way more for Emyr Huyws at the start of the season which was annoying, I only looked to sell him after reading a few on here talking about him being injury prone.
  12. I did not realise he was Richard Wright's son! Even more reason to have him as first choice then. I only play one up front so Geubbels is having to be patient, he doesn't look that good on current ability but he's a useful sub to have on small wages. You are right I tried to sell a lot of the pros first season to focus on youth and bolster the numbers with loans (Rhian Brewster, James Garner, Pietro Pellegri, Marc Guehi & Cardoso from West Ham). First season sales were: Jordan Roberts (£190k), Cole Skuse (£245k), Alan Judge (£275k), Will Keane (£375k), Luke Chambers (300k), Kayden
  13. I'm also managing Ipswich, there are some fantastic young players both in the first team and in the development squad. Won League One with 100 points in the first season and currently have the following squad in the Championship: GK: Harry Wright, Marek Stech (free back up) RB: Javi Manquillo (signed for free this season), Dylan Crowe LB: Aaron Hickey (£195k from Hearts 1st season) David De La Vibora (£3.5k Real Madrid First Season), Tommy Smith (also plays centre back) CB: Luke Woolfenden, Timothy Fosu Mensah (loan), Jonathan Panzo (£1.9m from Monaco this season)
  14. The most ridiculous position of them all is up front, we only play one striker most games but we have so many options: Strikers Hilmar Eiriksson - The other Icelandic player in our squad and he's pretty damn good! Shea McDonell - Bit of a legend at club and international level. Been with us 5 years and cost us £50k from Glenavon Daniel Kearney - Also important at club and international level for us. Just 21 years old and also with us for 5 years after signing for £40k from Dungannon Keith Quinn - He's a good young northern irish player but I think
  15. In midfield we play a Half Back and a Segundo Volante behind an advanced playmaker in Central Midfield, here are those options: Central Midfield Anibal Silveira - Signed for £500k from Braga, only got limited game time in his first season but he probably deserves more Dale Slater - Been with us 5 seasons now and was an absolute bargain at £22k from Dungannon Jonny Graham - A nice option to have through our youth system Gary O'Hara - Might be one to sell now but he is a good homegrown option , only 22 but has been at the club since signing as a 15 year ol
