  1. Loving the games so far!!! Just reached my first FA cup final of the year after beating chelsea (thanks to a 120 min own goal from silva hahahah). See the screenshot below: I have two fixtures against Man UTD, and obviously with the first season congestion, you can play a team twice in a row, however there is no FA Cup final in the list, and I have already played united in the league away from home back in January. It might be cosmetic, as I have seen players be ruled out of the FA cup final due to injuries. The game is also listed as being at anfield, so that will be interesting!
  2. *Disclaimer - No screenshots available as im at work, so please go off the detail provided below: Background - Created my own club starting in the Vanarama National South, having a lot of success, we achieved promotion to the premier league with 5 promotions in 6 seasons. Tactics wise - this changed regularly in order to try to find a way of winning, although I consistently looked to press/counter press throughout all of my tactics. My first season in the EPL was a huge success, finishing 14th comfortably, although no player in the squad scored more than 5 goals which was a worry fo
  3. Has anyone had much luck recreating this seasons 4231? A gegenpress in forms but also a control tactic in many ways.
  4. Managed to sell 31 year old Jordan Henderson to Manchester City for 75m! He had just captained the side to 2 successive league titles and a CL title, although not featuring as first choice. City made a bid of around 47m and I thought I'd be cheeky and ask for 75m expecting them to bid at around 55m, but no they comply and match my requested bid upfront! Would be interesting to see how much more I could have got out of them... He's now playing as fernandinho's replacement in their 4123 formation.
  5. My preference has always been 1 main tactic following a certain philosophy, I don't tend to change my tactics for away games although in the past i have used completely different formations away from home in order to get results... Claiming the "tinkerman" title in game! Especially when using higher quality teams I prefer to have 1 tactic to follow and use both home and away, similar to the way in which Pep always imposes his style regardless of opposition/venue. In my Liverpool save, which struggled in the first season at home using the vertical tika-taka in a 4231 formation, which
  6. One recurring problem I encounter in every FM game I have played is contrasting form when playing at home compared to away. I wanted to hear if anyone else had similar issues? I dislike having a home and away tactic and don't understand why my tactic performs so differently, I know its harder playing away from home, but a tactic that creates numerous chances and scores 3 goals per game on average at home, but struggles to muster 1 away from home does not make sense to me. In FM18 i would regularly go unbeaten at home, my best season saw my side get 18/19 wins at home in the league
  7. My planned team for my second season with LFC. I have already acquired De Vrij (free transfer), Fructl (15m), Sessegnon (18m) and Guebbels (6m). I am currently close to winning the league in my first season, so should have a sizeable kitty for the summer window in order to sign Gian-Luca Itter, Mere, Lemar and Jorginho (or Diawara). Plus sales of several senior players to come. Retraining Sessengon to Advanced playmaker, and a back up left back, i dont use wingers at home and he has all the attributes i like from my two offensive central midfilders, it will be an interesting developm
  8. Signed Geubbells off the back of your recommendation in the first January window (for around 8m at 16 years old), scored on his debut in the league cup semi final to become LFC's youngest ever goal scorer... big future
  9. Had the craziest Champions League semi final in my second season. Drew at Old Trafford 2-2 in the first leg. despite going 2-0 up. When picking my team for the second leg i made my first fatal error, something ive done throughout my Liverpool career, not selecting a GK on the bench... 2-0 up after 30 mins, looks like job done when donnurammu is stretchered off, up steps Joe Gomez in net. We score moments later 3-0, united had only mustered 2 efforts by this point so i thought all would be ok... United net through Lukaku, then robertson makes a horror tackle putting us down
  10. Transfer suggestions 3rd season Just finished my second season: League cup final - Lost v Manchester united Champions League semi final - lost v Manchester United (6-6 aggregate score, lost on away goals) FA cup final - won v Huddersfield (knocked Man U out in the semi) Premier League - 83 points 3rd place (1 point behind Man U, 2 behind Chelsea) Firmino scored 54 goals, he now has 94 goals in 95 appearances in my two seasons at the club Mane (26), Salah (23) and woodbun (21) all scored over 20 goals overall in the season. Salah registered 31 as
  11. Halfway through my second season now, currently in first place and still in all of the cup competitions (league cup semi, CL R16 and FA cup 4th round) Still using the 433 narrow at home, to great effect, scoring a lot of goals Firmino has 32 goals in 18 league games which is ridiculous. He got 40 goals in 48 appearances the previous season and looks like he will smash that record in the league alone. He won the ballon d'or in 2018 for his goalscoring efforts, scoring 48 in 40 games and registering 15 assists. Salah has been excellent scoring and assisting, Mane has been
  12. Anyone else struggling away from home? I'm in my second season now, halfway through the first I was top of the league and 6 points clear, come to the end of the season I scraped 4th place on goal difference... I play a 433 narrow (found on another forum) and at Anfield the results are unreal... Defensively always likely to concede goals, but going forward always notched 3 or 4 goals a game, won every game at anfield in all competitions bar a 3-3 draw with Manchester United. The tactic focuses on counter pressing, most of my goals came from winning the ball in midfield playing it forward
