  1. I've had a look through the forums and haven't been able to find anything on this, but I could easily have missed it. When players retire and become staff, do they have set staff potentials? For example, lets say Carlos Tevez retires. Will his staff potential be the same in each save I have? I'm determined to have former players on my staff but so far, most former players I've looked at look like poor staff!
  2. @oze07 My line up varied from a 4-2-3-1, 4-3-3 (DM) & 4-4-2. My most used tactic was 4-3-3 (DM) for the first season: Neto Wass Diakhaby Paulista Centelles Coquelin Parjeo Soler F. Torres Rodrigo Guedes Rotation players: Garay, Kondogbia, Gaya, Cheryshev, Piccini, Santi Mina. I bought Morilla & Markovic in January and they played plenty of games. Ivan Martinez was also signed and he played a few games too! I had a great first season, finishing 2nd in the league, got to the the Quarter Finals in the Champions League and lost to Atletico Madird, and then beat them to with the Copa del Ray. I sold in order to buy in the summer, but I still had around £15m in transfers before sales with 75% being added to the transfer budget. Alex Blesa from Levante was also signed for £2.5m and moved to the Valencia Mestella squad. I want my reserve team to be promoted this season so I can effectively "loan" out my youngsters to them for game time before being ready for the first team. I also have Trincao joining in the summer 2020 for £12mil.
  3. @Carlf788 I ended up going with Valencia. I just couldn't resist bringing them back to their glory days! Good first season so far and into February. 2nd in the league, 2 points behind Barcelona, into the Copa del Ray final against Barcelona and got Juventus into the Champions league.... wish me luck! Carlos Soler and Ferran Torres have been amazing so far. Playing a 4-3-3 DM most games, Looking towards a quiet summer with minimal transfer budget unless I move some players on... got Pelayo Morilla in as well as Alex Remiro joining on a free. Maybe Dani Parejo and Coquelin to move on to give me more than £2mil as predicted budget
  4. What is your squad looking like? Have you been able to keep hold of the big players such as Merino and Oyarzabal? Has Barrenetxea developed well? I have seen your posts from earlier but forgot I had seen them! Could I still see your squad though please?
  5. I'm gutted that my Sevilla save refuses to open and all my back ups only get a few days in before failing. A real shame. I was half way through my second season and loving it! I don't fancy starting with them again so will pick a different team in Spain. Any thoughts?? I was considering Real Sociedad and Valencia, but open to any suggestions
  6. Started a save as Sevilla and into the January transfer window. Brought in Morilla for 1mil, Ivan Martinez for 750k, Svetozar Markovic 1.7m and looking at Antonio Marin & Manu Morlanes to help replace the aging squad. Sold Nolito, Carrico and loaned out Amadou. I was wondering if anyone has seen Antonio Zarzana & Alejandro Pozo (on loan to Granda at the start of the game) turn out well on any saves? Also, there is a pre-arranged transfer for Munas Dabbur to join in the summer. Is he someone who could lead the line when Andre Silva's loan ends and Ben Yedder probably gets poached??
  7. Agree with you there 100%. Olsen is not good enough for first choice at a team like Roma. Plenty of decent italian goalkeepers to go for. Cragno from Cagliari is usually available from Cagliari cheaply, for example @RandomGuy. had Cragno as his first choice keeper in his Roma save, back on page 7-9 in this thread and he performed well by the sounds of it
  8. I would recommend Plizzari. I've had him for almost 3 seasons now at Sassuolo and he has been fantastic in a sweeper keeper role. Audero hasn't really developed in the game, although he might develop better from a manager rather than AI. Meret does look decent, but I don't have any experience. Which team are you playing as?
  9. Just starting my 4th season as Sassuolo and I have qualified for Champions League!! I finished 5th in the league, but Juventus were thrown out for financial reasons. I'm hoping to push for the top 4 more convincingly this season as well as challenging for the TIM Cup and the Europa League if I happen to drop into it from the Champions League. I had a takeover just before the summer and they have limited my transfer budget, so I've had to sell in order to buy. My current squad is young and has plenty of potential: GK: Plizzari, Consigli RB: Lirola, Adjapong CB: Magnani, Senesi, Luperto, Pongracic LB: Saracchi, Regen CM: Locatelli, Melegoni, Tonali, Nandez, CAM: Lovo Majer, LW/RW: Berardi, Orsolini, Brignola, Kenedy ST: Odgaard, Da Graca On the way out is Locatelli, who will finance my move for Barella and maybe Gravenberch too. I'm also looking at another striker, either Jovic on a free or a loan deal for Andrea Favilli. I had Lacazette on loan last season who did quite well, but I can't seem to replace this quality for this season so far... Any inputs about my squad, please let me know. Always open to suggestions and to see if anyone else is playing with Sassuolo.
  10. What's your current team? What system are you playing?
  11. Is anyone playing with Sassuolo? I got bored of my Roma save and fancied a different save in Serie A. In the first season I finished 9th with 53 points, which I was very happy with, although I crashed out the TIM cup early on. My transfer budget was nicely cushioned by the outgoings of Alfred Duncan for 19mil and Politano for 15mil as well as various other players for a few million here and there. I was able to sign the following players: Zlatan Sehovic 500k, Tonali 9mil, Graca 725k, Lovro Majer 5.25m, Plizzari 10.75m, Nahitan Nandez 9mil as well as loan deal for Arana (2 years) and Orsolini I also have Marcos Senesi for 9.25m joining in January. The second season has been bit of a struggle with the team not scoring many goals.
  12. Cheers @RandomGuy. Neither Corbo or Bettella have really developed on your game. Have they played many minutes in the first few seasons other than the current season?
  13. Enjoyed my first season with Roma, winning the league on the last day! Been given 40mil to spend and with a few sales I've now got 60mil. Not quite enough to compete with the likes of PSG, Liverpool, Man City etc, but enough to make some improvements. Centre back and Goalkeeper are my focus points. Missed out on Rugani to PSG for 41mil, Pavard to Liverpool for 52mil and Lucas Hernandez for 58mil. Instead, I'm looking at: - Eder Militao from Porto (who can play at CB, RB, DM and CM) who will cost 45mil - Wesley Hoedt from Southampton for 25mil I also want to sign a young italian defender.... How have Gabriele Corbo from Bologna and Davide Bettella from Atalanta developed in people's games?
  14. @RandomGuy. Congrats on winning the league with Roma. What system are you playing and how are you getting the best out of the squad?
  15. Can anyone let me know how the young players at Roma have developed? Luca Pellegrini and Alesssio Riccardi in particluar
