  1. 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
  2. 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?
  3. 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.
  4. What's your current team? What system are you playing?
  5. 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.
  6. 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?
  7. 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?
  8. @RandomGuy. Congrats on winning the league with Roma. What system are you playing and how are you getting the best out of the squad?
  9. Can anyone let me know how the young players at Roma have developed? Luca Pellegrini and Alesssio Riccardi in particluar
  10. Starting a game as Hoffenheim. First ever year for the team in the Champions League, only one trophy won in their history, and a decent squad.... a great team to write yourself into the history books with! Lots of potential. There are 5 important players out injured at the start of the season: Amiri, Geiger, Kramaric, Rupp and Demirbay with all players due back at different times throughout the season. The centre of midfield is pretty light with those injuries, but there is enough quality to make do until Geiger comes back (due back in 2 months). I've just got to the first 1st round of the DFB-Pokal, against Paderborn, and I'm feeling optimistic. Enough decent youngsters to bulk up the squad and the team has played OK in pre-season. I am a little unsure of what tactics to go for as it stands though. Toying with a 4-2-3-1 or a 4-3-3 DM. Is anyone else starting with Hoffenhein? Any suggestions for tactics or player roles?
  11. Any save in Russia outside Zenit, Lokomotive and Spartak are challenging saves financially. CSKA Moscow is a save I've really enjoyed. Give youth players a chance, scout Russia well and you can find some good players in smaller teams for cheap. I have a 5 star potential CB who I picked up from a second division team for 100k and a 5 star potential GK from another second division team for 500k. Chalov and Kuschaev have been really good for me after giving them plenty of game time in the first 2 seasons. As long as you're getting Champions League group stage football, and occasionally knockout rounds, financially you'll be fine going forward. Look for a few bargains and frees to bulk up your squad. Enjoy!!
  12. I'm playing my youth players Chalov and Kuchaev in pretty much every game, and they are doing fairly well admittedly. The defence is a problem, especially as you said @Bigpapa42 how slow their CBs are. Only Vasin is probably going to be kept for the second season. How is your season going as Lokomotiv Moscow?
  13. Started a final save as CSKA Moscow, hoping to bring through a new generation of Russian talent. The club has big debts, around 150mil, paying back 1.5m a month. In November and sitting in Europa League places, just, and I just can't get the team playing well... Tried playing 4-3-3 and 4-3-1-2 but neither systems are paying dividends. Any advice? Any one else playing in Russia?
  14. Started a new career mode with Malaga and just finished the summer transfer window. As a club who have only every won La Liga 123 twice as well as two lower division cups, they are great club to build up a legacy with and become the first manager to win some major silverware. They have no outstanding loans to pay off, and a decent squad to work with, as well as some decent youngsters including Kuki, Ontiveros and Robles. There is a big first team squad, with a lot of loaned players. I've terminated a few loan contracts and loaned a few fringe players to bring the squad down to a more manageable size. Transfer budgets were disabled, but i have loaned in Patrick Cutrone and got Zeca in on a free. I'm going to use 4-3-3 DM as my standard formation, with the ever reliable 4-4-2 as my back up. I've won my first two games against Leganes and Deportivo... next up are Barcelona!
  15. @stevecummins78 How do you set up your Roma side with Pellegrini and Barella in the starting line up?
