  1. I'm always very reluctant to spend big as I rarely manage a big side and bargains are way more fun imo. The biggest I've spent in FM20 is £38m for Jack Grealish when I was managing Everton but (surprise, surprise) I got bored of that save after one and a half season. He was a baller as a Mezzala though.
  2. Excited to have found this thread. Just finished the first season with Everton and managed to finish 5th mainly because Arsenal and Spurs were very poor. I was just thinking about whether I should loan him out for the second season or give him some more first team opportunities. He had a crazy development from just training with the first team and some cameos in the odd cup game and like 2 or 3 league games. I'll definitely keep him around now especially since Mason Holgate is so average and have not impressed at all.
  3. If I were managing Juve I 'd look at Lazzari, Di Lorenzo or Conti for an Italian right back. They'd probably cost a lot though. Others could be Sime Vrsaljko, Noussair Mazraoui, Kévin Malcuit or Alessandro Florenzi for example.
  4. Interesting thread! One good way is to have scouts with good adaptability and determination as well as judging player ability and potential. Have some of them sent out to scout regions rather than countries, for example North America, Eastern Europe, Asia etc. This might come across as too obvious but that is my main tips.
  5. So I've only just got my Brenford save going and so far I'm really enjoying it. It's quite a new way of playing FM for me but I like it a lot. I'm only two competitive games in to the first season but this is the signings I've made: Myles Kenlock, signed for £800k from Ipswich. Will be a backup option to the left back role, also a plus that he can fill in at the CB spot. Tom Lowery, signed for £2.8m from Crewe Alexandra (2m straight up and 800k in installments). My biggest splash out and also my biggest gamble. I will look to retrain him as a AMC as I like the look
  6. I have just fired up a new Brentford save after the winter update. I couldn't resist! Especially since I'm a fellow Scandinavian. However, considering Brentford's youth level at the start of the game have you all kept the U23 staff for the future or have you let them all go and decided just to hire new ones when eventually the youth level and youth teams are back? I will send all the youth players that can't make the first team squad out on loan. Cheers!
  7. What position are you all using Dele Alli in? He's still injured in my save since I've only played two league games so far (3-1 win at home to Burnley and 1-5 win away at Villa) but I'm quite unsure where he will fit in. I'm using a 4-1-4-1 DM vertical tiki taka formation and as my midfield is really stacked with Ndombele, Lo Celso, Bruno Fernandes (what a beast), Sissoko, Winks, Dier and Skipp, Dele will most likely have to play IF (A) on the left wing. It will be interesting to see how that pans out. Also, I bought David Brooks as I needed cover on the right wing. Lamela got injur
  8. Thanks for the suggestions but I decided to go for Nelson Semedo for £24m. Seems like a bargain for that price!
  9. Lorenzo Pellegrini have a £27m release clause at the start of the game. Tried to sign him for Spurs but he chose to sign a new contract after they offered him £10k/w more in wage and promised him to be an important player.
  10. I made a Spurs save in the beta to get going with this years new version of everything. Not managed to play so much yet but so far I sold Eriksen to PSG for £60m upfront + £2m in 12 month installments. I also sold Alderweireld to Liverpool (unfortunately...) for the £25m release clause and Aurier for £5m to Al-Ahli. I was desperate to get rid of Aurier basically at any price. So far the only one I have bought is Timo Kehrer from PSG for £5,5m! What a bargain. I have not quite decided which formation I will be using but I'm leaning towards 5-3-2 WB and a classic 4-2-3-1. Does anyone
  11. Hi, any thoughts on this setup? I haven't given the 4231 formation a go since forever so this is all a bit new for me. I want unpredictability in the attacks and a *fairly* stable defense as far as that's possible with this formation.
  12. Jack Lahne has very good PA, highly rated irl in Sweden as well. Others could be Simon Tibbling (CM), Erdal Rakip (CM), Edwin Crona (ST) and Noah Alexandersson (CAM, ST). Edit: John's brother Joshua Kitolano (CM) is a good prospect also.
  13. I'm at work now so I can't post print screens but Jason Kerr is a good fairly young CB, Antony Angileri for a young CB with great potential and Stephen O'Donnell as a right back option. These won't cost you more than £8m in total. I think Brentford have some gems that can be picked up fairly cheap if I remember correctly.
  14. Luan and Matheus Cunha are great options for a F9 role. I mainly played Zaniolo and Schick as F9's when I managed Roma. They did fine, Schick scored about 15 goals from that position. I even played Dzeko at times as a F9 and he did alright too.
