  1. It's 30 Sept 2021 on my save and it's been a great few seasons. I'm 2nd in the league and have turned down job offers from Arsenal, Juventus and Real Madrid. I thought I'd attach some pictures of my save in case anyone can get some value from any transfers or formation etc. FYI the best players I bought are Pietro Pellegri, Kasper Dolberg, Malcom, Arthur and Martin Odegaard. Hope this helps
  2. Indeed. They are influential players so the other players moaned a bit but I took that risk They are also valuable so gave me the money I needed to invest in a new keeper and strikers Couldn’t sell Redmond though which was a shame sonjust sent him out on loan and will try again in the summer Good luck
  3. To be honest, i think possession is overrated. What's important is what you do with the ball when you have it, even if it's for only 35-45% of the time. I'm in charge of Southampton and top of the league (it's October, 1st season) so only a few games in, but have focussed solely on scoring goals. My possession stats are poor and i leak goals in every game, but i just score more than the other team. I think the trick is to create a tactic to beat a computer AI, rather than what will/should work in 'Real' football. I hope that helps and Good Luck. I've attached a couple of screenshots which might help.
  4. This is what i'm using and it seems to be working. Top of the league with Southampton (albeit, it's only October)
  5. Currently in October and top of the league, must be doing something right. In the market for a new BWM CM as Lemina isn't really doing it there and a RWB as a back up for Cedric (idea's welcomed) as i couldn't find one in the summer.
  6. Always start my FM games as Southampton (my supported club) and have enjoyed a good start, albeit early days. Brought in Timo Horn for 30m as i find Forster unreliable. I was happy with the defence so left them alone, but send Pied out on loan so may look for a RWB in January. I've got 16m left and -72k pw wage budget left but could find anyone in the summer. Any ideas anyone? Midfield was already pretty strong but added Elneny on loan from Arsenal, who has been superb. Most of my transfer activity was upfront as we were already short and i wanted to play three strikers, so brought in Dembele from Celtic for 19.75m, Batshuayi from Chelsea on loan (with an optional fee of 8m) and Kevin Volland for 20m. Outwards, I sold Tadic to Monaco for 29m and Boufal to West Ham for 23.5m As you can see from my results, i'm doing pretty well, scoring a lot of goals but also concede quite a lot too. Hopefully our run will continue and we will bounce back from our last game, losing 4-2 to Huddersfield Happy to receive any advice or provide any i can if you are struggling as i've seen a few posts saying FM18 is the hardest FM yet, but personally i've found it the easiest in regards to results anyway. PS, my players do all hate me and don't listen to me when i walk into the room (dressing). Just makes FM more realistic in my view and the same happens at home when i walk in from work with my wife and kids.
  7. Cool, thanks for the feedback and the advice. Good luck to you also
