  1. Ok, thanks for the answer. Was a bit worried about it being like you describe it...
  2. Anyone managing in the Premier League had the point based rules applied? (The one that @Stouters refers to) If you had it, what impact did it have? I'm in January 2020 on my Everton save and the point based system will be in place from 31st of December 2020.
  3. Pascal gross has been good for me during preseason. Playing him as a wm(s) in the MR slot, giving him license to cross more and do more risky passes. Nice to hear about Andone. Looking forward to see him returning from the injury
  4. I just started a Brighton save. Got a 2-1 victory against Arsenal in the first league game a bit lucky though I should add. Regarding line-up I have gone for a flat 442. My philosophy will be a high intensive right up in your face approach. I'm far from a tactics genius so the risk of failure is quite high My signings: Ivaylo Chochev - hardworking central midfielder that will be a backup option. For my cms i look for hardworking allround players that can put in a tackle. Maximiliano Gomez - will by my main target man (Glenn Murray as backup) who will hopefully create a goo
  5. If you dont mind me asking, are you running the TM as a lone striker or in a partnership?
  6. I really like your post, and I have thinking about trying to play a more genric style where I use the "standard" roles more. Do you decide yourself what you consider as a generic role? Or do you know if there are some guidelines on what is a generic role and what is a specialist role? Some roles are easy to understand, but when it comes to the strikers I'm not so sure what I should consider as generic vs special
  7. OK, so stupid question : I have tried to setup my own training schedules. Earlier I let my ass man do it. now my players get lower ratings for training. When ass man did the training I saw a lot of 10s, now the highest is just above 8. is this an indication that my schedule is worse than my ass man's?
  8. @warlock 😱 that's a thoug start. I wish you all the best! Nice to read up on everyone's progress. I like the big difference in all the teams that are being managed here
  9. Really enjoying to read about all the different saves people are doing! Many of you are doing really good @warlock will be interesting to see what signings you can get for your pl season! (I have a quite a struggle in the pl with Blackburn at the moment. Let's hope I can survive to Christmas :p)
  10. @karanhsingh playing at Stamford Bridge is a bit weird. Also, if I remember correctly both you and Chelsea will play in cl, right? So there will be a lot of matches at Stamford Bridge when I started to read your post I was fist sure that your board had decided to scrap the capacity increase and instead build a new stadium named Stanford bridge
  11. I look at the following: 1. Does the player fit the role/roles I want him to play? Here I look more at specific attributes than if he is 100% natural in a specific position and role. For example I play a central defender as a bwm in central midfield as he has the attributes I look for in my system. 2. Does the player fit my club DNA for specific attributes? For example I want all my players to have high determination 3. Does the player have a personality that I like? I tend to look for determined, professional, resolute and so on. 4. Does the player have any cons? I don'
  12. @Spike nice! Following Villa in Europe will be fun do you know what transfer budget you get for the next season yet?
  13. You are correct, Martinez is actually looking quite good, and to be honest he was my second coiche target behind musa barrow. Petagna also looks good, but he only fits one out of four requirements that I have for new signings (at least first team signings) so I'm still a little bit disappointed
  14. Blackburn 2019/20 pre-season - disappointment So it has been a though transfer window for us. As mentioned earlier we will try to go for low-block 442, which meant we needed some new players. However, it was difficult to bring good players in. Either they wanted too much salary, or another team came in and snatched them. This is what has happened for us: Pontus jansson is the only one I like (I'm a Swede so needed some fellow countrymen ). However, this is what we managed to get. We also sold some players, but our finances looks quite bad so I only get 10% from transfers.
  15. @warlock nice start! Interesting to follow your next adventure may I ask what roles you use for your frontmen?
