  1. Damn, I missed out on posting at least once in every community thread since joining... How is everyone?
  2. Yeahh, I play a 4-2-31 but it's not working all that well at the moment. With Ozil being long term injured I'm probably going to switch to a 4-1-4-1. I'm trying to retrain Welbeck to be an AMC, and he made 105 passes in that game which was his first. Lacazette has been shockingly bad for me so far, I can't seem to get him right
  3. This may be the most frustrated I've ever been at a game of Football Manager...
  4. In the first January window and I am in need of a right winger. Sporting aren't budging from £45m for Gelson Martins, which I don't think I'm willing to pay... Any suggestions?
  5. All grand this side, buddy! Heading to Canada next year for a few months, so it's going to be all go again! One of these days I'm going to sit down and finish half a story again
  6. Doing my triennial check in . Hope you are all well my friends!
  7. Came back to a United save as I just wanted a bit of fun for the last few months before a new release. First season went... okay... Won the title with 89 points, performed awfully in the cups. Liverpool knocked me out of both the F.A and EFL, lost at Leicester in the Community Shield and Bilbao (bloody Bilbao) knocked me out of the Europa League in the last 16. Improved a fair amount over the summer, just looking for recommendations on a back-up 'keeper as Romero is out for 6 months. Is it worth sticking with the youth?
  8. £40m is huge! Lingard has been a beast on my save so far, he's my top scorer after twelve games with seven goals. Playing him as an inside forward on the right, and he's just been... well, excellent. 12 games and all that green!
  9. I started a save, but when I got to February it corrupted . Zlat is a beast if you can get him working, before the save died he grabbed 38 goals in 33 games. I had him as a complete forward, with Mata behind him and Rashford/Martial and Mkhitayran as inside forwards set at support. I've just started again and will set up the same! Hopefully I can get the same results. I also grabbed Danilo at Right Back for £5.5m, which is worth a shout for a back up to Darmian.
  10. I'm not having a bad run so far, I'm at the end of 2016 and still unbeaten in the league: Only one slight hiccup when Arsenal knocked me out of league cup, but I was playing mostly kids so can't complain too much. Winning at Stamford Bridge the day we lost IRL was a little spooky. Ibra has been a beast for me so far! Scoring for fun. I'm trying to get through the first season with no inbound transfer activity, and so far I guess it's going well. That all said, I have a fiver on me losing to Liverpool.
  11. Even after all these years, and all this forum hiatuses I go on, I'm still the world class attacking midfielder
  12. Seems to be the week for explosions. First, that really horrifying looking one in Tianjin and now Bangkok. We have some backpacker friends out there at the moment and their phones haven't stopped ringing.
  13. Oh hey all, it's been a very long time since I posted anything on this forum. I've never actually completed a story either, which makes it all the more boring that I've decided I want back in . I needed something to do whilst I'm gallivanting around the world on my travels Game is being playing in FM 2015, using the latest patch. Large database loaded with all the major divisions from the Netherlands, England, France, Italy, Spain and Germany loaded. First window transfers have also been disabled. Please feel free to point out any mistakes etc Hopefully I can update as regularly as possible, and that you enjoy my journey with Ajax -------------------------- Season objectives: Eredivisie: The board would like us to come home with the title, and that is what I’ll be expecting. KNVB Cup: Again the board would like me to bring the trophy back, whilst it would be nice I’m not going to go all guns blazing. A good chance to rotate the squad. Champions League: The board seem to think we won’t make it out of the group stage, I’ll be aiming to prove them wrong. There is a budget, but I don’t plan to use it. Squad: Goalkeepers – We are lucky in this area to have some real quality. Jasper Cillessen is in charge of the number one jersey, the 26 year old Dutch international is easily one of the best goalkeepers in the league, and will be a rock between the sticks. Backing him up is Diederik Boer, the former Zwolle man is adequate back up. Micky van der Hart, whilst on loan at the moment will be set to fight Diederik next season, and with the right tutelage will be pressing for the number 1. Defenders – On the left and right we have no problems, Danish Nicolai Boilesen will command the left side and Ricardo van Rhijn down the right, youngsters Kenny Tete and Jairo Riedewald offering back up and will gain invaluable match experience. In the centre, our first choice partnership will be captain Niklas Moisander and Joel Veltman with Nick Viergever, Riechedley Bazoer and Jairo Riedwald waiting in the wings. Midfield – Here is where the squad gets exciting, Ajax have some really excellent talent to display in the middle of the park. I’ll be playing a 4-2-3-1 formation so the two players I’ll have sat in the middle are South African Thulani Serero and on loan Dane Niki Zimling. Lasse Schone will sit in behind the striker with Kishna on the left and Anwar El Ghazi on the right supplying my striker. There are so many talented youngsters who will be pushing for first team places; Davy Klassen, Lucas Andersen, and Daley Sinkgraven the pick of the bunch. Strikers – There are three here that will be fighting for the single starting berth. It will mainly be fought between wonderkid Richario Zivkovic and Arkadiusz Milik on loan from Bayern Leverkusen with the Icelandic Kolbeinn Sigporsson rounding out the three. Preseason fixtures start with a trip to Switzerland and game against SV Austria Salzburg, and we will face Zwolle in the Dutch Supercup on the 26th July. The season proper will see us at the Amsterdam Arena to face Sv Heerenveen on the 3rd of August Preseason Results: SV Austria Salzburg (A): 3-1 Ludwig Hasenburger (32); Anwar El Ghazi (16), Niklas Moisander (24), Arkadiusz Milik (53) CS Pandurii (A): 4-0 Ricardo Kishna (32), Arkadiusz Milik (35), Niklas Moisander (45+1), Davy Klassen (74) Sheffield Wednesday (H): 0-0 Alcorcon (H): 4-1 Oscar Plano (77); Lasse Schone (12, Pen 25), Ricardo Kishna (45+1), Anwar El Ghazi (79) West Brom (H): 3-0 Arkadiusz Milik (27, 38), Niki Zimling (42) Lanciano (A): 5-0 Ricardo Kishna (4, 16, 21), Arkadiusz Milik (7, 14) Very happy with how the pre-season has gone, unbeaten in seven games; the only disappointing result was the goalless draw with Sheffield Wednesday, but it was a team of mostly youngsters playing. Arkadiusz Milik managed to twist his ankle in the last game and will be unavailable for three weeks as a result, which is a bit of an arse as he was by far our best player. Anwar El Ghazi has picked up a knock and will miss the opening two weeks of the season, as well. Roll on the Super Cup game with Zwolle in a few days.
