  1. It’s not a bug, it will be because of the 2022 World Cup having to be played in November/December.

    Youth Intake ineffective

    There's nothing wrong with that newgen at all, he would develop well and be a great defender for a lot of people. You have focused on his technique being 3, but he's a defender, a lot of centre halfs don't have the best technique, your looking at it all wrong, as a centre half you look at tackling, marking etc. You have the main areas highlighted for a central defender, in which he has good attributes for a 16 year old. 14 tackling when only just come through the youth intake, is already alot better than a lot of centre halfs in the game. Just train him on his positioning, then his physical attributes and he will be great. He's also great with both feet. If he is the sort of newgen you been talking about rejecting and trying to say the whole youth intake is broken, then that's your problem, but I know myself and a lot of people would be happy with him, and could develop him into a great defender.

    Selling felliani and rojo is fairly easy. I sold them in jan of the 1st season. Got 20mil for rojo from Napoli and 24mil from Lyon for Fellaini. I’ve also sold Fred in the summer after the 1st season to palace for 42mil, which was quite surprising, managed to negotiate them up from their original offer of 26mil.

    Well we have struggled for goals for most of the 1st season but I made some tweaks to my tactic and now the goals are suddenly flowing. Am using the 4-2-3-1 as my main tactic now instead of the 4-1-2-3. I took away the higher tempo and work the ball into the box, and instead added play low crosses and play out of defence. Also added the counter press and higher engagement line. Have since scored 12 goals in 4 games, beating Chelsea, Liverpool and PSG in that time. Also Lukaku who has struggled all season with our goal struggles has now scored 7 of the 12. Sadly too late to win the league title, as Liverpool look like winning that, but we are now in the fa cup final, and have 1 foot in the champs league semi final.

    I use a 4-1-2-3 Dm formation as my main one and a 4-2-3-1 as well, I have since tweaked them both since that post and it has been better, but Lukaku has been abit of a struggle this time round. Yea I decided not to buy anyone in the 1st season, just see what can do with the squad that's there, until I could sell all the players I want rid of. I do now however have Koulibaly coming in for the 2nd season, got that deal done early. Yea I do like De Ligt and Tierney, but Shaw is always quality for me, plus because I see everyone buys them players it puts me off them.

    Wow that's a lot of players out. Surprised you got Kane and Hazard that cheap, I've seen Kane go for double that in some people's saves.

    Yea exactly why I started again really, as I now have a better idea and feel of what I want and hopefully won't make the same mistakes. I usually have 2 cracks at having a man utd save anyway. The Lewandowski signing meant I couldn't really play Rashford up front as much, as I always planned on having him no1 striker, plus I then had to send Greenwood out on loan, probably picked the wrong team to loan him too and he wasn't playing much so that's when I knew couldn't carry the save on. I know what you mean about the newgens as well, I like to try and do 6-8 seasons on my man utd saves, and just in general on all saves, but I don't really use many newgens, will use a couple usually ones that come through the youth intakes but don't overload the team with them. I'm not one of these that just buys all the best 16-17 year old newgens, or wonderkids that everyone buys and then just ignores the RL young players either. I tend to find newgens can be really easy to develop, which similar to you is when I lose interest, I don't mind developing one or 2 but when you have a whole team of world class newgens, that's when have to stop. I find it much more satisfying developing the real youngsters like Gomes, Greenwood, Laird etc and making them great players, which is very possible if spend the time and effort into them, and maybe spread one or newgens around them and that's what makes my save last longer. Plus I like to keep to Man utd traditions of developing players through the youth systems.

    The goals from long shots and corners aren't anything to do with a buggy tactic, its the nature of the ME at the moment. To be fair though long shots were dreadful in fm18, they have obviously just over tweaked it. But it is still possible to get good football from the ME, I started again and after struggling for goals, I tweaked my tactics and scored a few really nice goals from some good flowing football. I did try recording one but it didn't seem to upload.

    So after signing Lewandowski in the 3rd season, it threw the whole balance of my team out and kind of ruined the team for me. Being a Man Utd fan I have to get the feel of the team right otherwise I struggle to find the motivation to carry on, that's sometimes the problem with playing as the team you support. So saying that I have started again. To be fair most the players I want out will be the same and I still plan to bring in a couple of the same players like Koulibaly, but I just needed to start again and not make the silly signings. Sorted the staff 1st as always. I plan to change my assistant from Steve Holland to Mike Phelan after the 1st season, but he has only just joined an Aussie team so have to wait. Transfer wise just like last time I didn't buy anyone as wanted to keep the team mainly the same as IRL for the 1st season. I did sell Darmain though for 10mil, and also loaned Gomes and Chong out. I have progressed quite quickly and am already in December and here's the table. We have struggled for goals a little though and that has been our issue, and one of our losses was a 1-0 to Leicester where De Gea scored a 90th min own goal from a back pass, which was painful to watch. But we are in the semi final of the carabao cup, got drawn against Man city, with Fulham blackburn the other semi. We also finished 2nd in our champs league group, finishing level on points with Bayern. The draw was kind though and have been given Galatasaray in the next round.
  10. I don't quite get the point of this thread. All I get from it is he brought in so called big players, but brought loads of them in the 1st season, obviously expected instant results and to be top6 for Europe, lost loads of games and is now throwing a paddy about it. Obviously signed badly with players like Nasri,Balotelli and Draxler and too many players at once.

    The winger role has been doing great. In the 1st season it was abit hit and miss but Lingard did well, Sanchez and Mata were ok but struggled at times, but brought in Leon Bailey for that role and he had a great season in season 2 as you can see below. He also won young player of the year in the prem. Angel Gomes has also performed well in that role or as a Trequartista on the right. The lower defensive line and higher engagement seems to work well from what I can tell, we keep a fair amount of clean sheets and always have plenty of shots, the only thing is we pretty much always lose the possession stat and against some of the bigger teams we concede quite a few chances, so has been something I looking at maybe altering. Yea very happy with that defence, I brought Koulibaly in season 2 and he was brilliant and it was a toss up between them two on who I brought at the time, and I wanted another centre half for season 3 and looked at players like Sule and Upamecano but thought why not just combine Skriniar with Koulibaly. Hopefully be an incredible partnership.

    If you develop them well they can be, especially Chong. On my beta save with Pompey, the AI Man Utd developed Chong to be an incredible player. I'm hoping to do the same with any luck.

    Looks quality, the new Ryan Giggs. Great crossing, passing and pace all at 15, he could be incredible.

    Still an ex Liverpool player , to be fair I've seen the AI man utd sign him on a previous save then sold him for 40mil. Shaw has been incredible for me, but Guerreiro would be a great LB to replace him, if you get him. Yea I don't like offering wages either, but I wanted rid of Sanchez and his massive wages so was a comprise I took to clear him out.

    So season 2 is finished. It was tight but we brought the premier league trophy back home. It went to the final day and I beat defending champions city on goal difference, they had an incredible run at the end of the season to catch us, but we held on. We had 5 players in the team of the year. With 2 of our signings Bailey and Koulibaly making the team. Pogba won Players player and footballer of the year. Leon Bailey won young player of the year, and De Gea won the golden glove. We also made the champs league final but sadly lost out to Barca in extra time. Herrera got sent off after we took the lead, and we struggled after that. We went out early yet again in both domestic cups, with Aresnal and Liverpool winning the cups, which was disappointing and is something need to rectify. So only 1 trophy in season 2 but was a good season, with some young players coming on well, some great potential in this team. Here is the seasons stats for all comps. Pogba was immense, Shaw, Rashford and Lingard all very good. An 2 of our 4 signings were brilliant in Koulibaly and Bailey. Of the youngsters, Gomes and Tuanzebe were very good, plus Garner was decent as well. So onwards to season 3, we have had a poor showing in the domestic cups in both seasons so is an area will look to change, and we need to retain our title. In terms of transfers, Lukaku, Matic, Bailly and Romero will probably all be sold and Young is retiring. So we will need to replace them so will look to sign a full back, a dm and another centre half. Striker wise I don't plan on replacing Lukaku as between Rashford, Belotti and Martial we get the goals but will see. And will use Henderson or Peirera will be used as the no2. Greenwood and Chong will be back off loan and straight into the 1st team as well.
