  1. @fabreth I know it wasn't an ideal start to the preseason, but you had a good transfer period and your squad looks strong.
  2. Just a summer update. 1st the transfers My 1st transfer in is Benjamin Henrichs, I've been eyeing for 2-3 years now and I finally pulled the triggers, 60 mil isn't too steep considering he's a top player at a shallow position. Next is Nathan Redmond who I picked up on a free from Tottenham, I brought him in to rotate with Lookman on the left wing. My last transfer was Brazilian regen CB Marco Antonio, I bought him because I was going to let Rieldewald go to Real Madrid, but they low balled me using the stupid add on crap and I couldn't adjust the offer so Rieldewald stays here. Antonio has crazy good defensive stats ( 15 marking, and tackling, 17 heading and 15 jumping reach, his physicals are probably the best I have ever seen in a 22 year old CB). As for the outs nothing too major Schniderlin and Coleman were both north of 31 and the rest are youth players who wouldn't make the team. Fun fact only Lukaku, Tom Davies, Ross Barkley, Ademola Lookman, and Mason Holgate are left from the original team I took over. Super Cup We beat OL, Lacazette scored one for them Belotti scored 3 for me, a lot more entertaining then the Community Shield was. This is my 1st Super CUp win after losing to Tottenham the year I won the Europa League. Also OL was the last save I played before starting this challenge so it's good to see that Lacazette stayed. Community Shield I hate playing Tottenham more than any other team in the league. Every game is a fight and they never go away. They still have all their main guys and added players like FIrmino, Alexander-Arnold, and Carrasco. This game was as sloppy as it comes, the game went to PKs, they missed one, we made them all. + 200 22/23 Super Cup +50 22/23 Community Shield = +250 points Edit: I just looked and I'm finally a Legend at Everton
  3. @fabreth What a season!!! Great job on the Premier League, Champions League, and Super Cup victories. That Champions League run is crazy, having to beat Bayern, Juve, Man City, and PSG. Your squad is coming together very nicely. I really wish there was a way to import teams because I would love to have my Everton squad play against the teams you, @Jamie Cortez, and @Beric Dondarrion have put together.
  4. @fabreth @Jamie Cortez Thanks guys I appreciate it. @Jamie Cortez I would kill for your wingers, and I also had the same problem for a long time, I figured out that if you talk to the player and get an agreed value to sell teams rarely match it. Also congrats on 3rd place after a rough start. @fabreth It sucks losing a talented player for free, I lost 4 star striker Lucas Alario to Real Madrid on a free in my 4th season, he got transfer listed due to playing time right after his 1st season there. And yeah I feel your pain I have players asking for new deals every week as well.
  5. Oh boy this was my best season yet, after losing in the Community Shield to Man Utd we went on to win every other trophy available. League Cup: Won We stormed through the League Cup until we beat Man Utd on penalties. Man Utd took the early lead when their young 18 year old striker found the back of the net, it stayed that way until former Man Utd youth academy product Timothy Fosu-Mensah who we bought for a Everton record breaking $72 mil. I don't remember how the penalties went but I believe I won them by a large margin. My journey to wining the Cup included a 5-2 home win against Tottenham, a 5-1 away win vs West Ham, a 5-0 home win vs Arsenal, a 6-1 overall victory vs Brentford in the semi's. Everton also sent the League Cup goal record with 22 goals over the competition. FA Cup: Won We beat Crystal Palace 3-0 in a game that was never in doubt. My top 3 attacking players all scored goals to bring the trophy home. The road to the final was pretty much gifted to us as the 1st 3 games were all at home. We beat Swansea 5-1, Bournemouth 4-1, the always annoying Watford 2-0, and in the semi's Nottingham Forest 2-0. Champions League: Won WE FINALLY WON OUR 1ST CHAMPIONS LEAGUE!!! We beat Inter Milan in the Final 2-1. We started it off with a goal by Ben Davies which was a great moment for him and the club as he's one of our youth academy players and has become one of the best English players in the world. It started by our CAM Luis Herrera finding a header into the box and passing to Davies in space who beat the GK. Inter tied it as their AML Carrillo crossed it into the box and their CAM Franco Vazquez buried it. We won it for good in the 68th minute as Belotti fired cross from a crazy angle on the right hand side all the to the left side that met our top summer signing LB Theo Hernandez. It was a great game with an unlikely hero at the end. Our Journey included winning every game in the group stage, losing to Atletico Madrid, then coming home and winning 1-0 to advance on away goals, our Quaterfinal opponent was Shakhtar winning the home leg 4-0 and losing the away leg 1-0, in the Semi's came desa vu as we played Bayern who we beat win the Semi's in our 3rd year to go on and win the Europa League. And just like last time we beat the crap out of them at home winning 6-1 and losing 2-1 away. Premier League: Won It was a three team battle most of the way between us, Tottenham, and Arsenal. Tottenham was in the lead until February, including buying 4 senior team players with a combine worth of $113.5 mil, but it is Tottenham after all and they choked their lead away to finish 8 points behind us. Our 3 summer signings all played very well; LB Theo Hernandez obliterated the Everton assist record by assisting in 23 goals, he also scored 3 goals with 2 of them coming in the Champions League after the Group stages and had a rating of 7.51. Timothy Fosu-Mensah's versatility was a blessing as he regularly played as a Box to Box CM and a Ball Winning DM, and even got some game as a Ball Winning CB. He scored 7 goals and added 2 assists and had a rating of 7.28. As for the rest of the team it's the same Lukaku, and Belotti are the best striker duo in the world, Barkley, and Herrera are big time playmakers at the CAM role but they excel at different things. Zivkovic is a monster on the wing. The midfield is deep and dominating, my CB's are rock solid but Zouma seems to be the best one defensively overall, Keane has an uncanny ability to score off set pieces, and Rieldewield is just all around solid but nothing amazing. My fullbacks are good but has little depth. At GK Alisson and Lafont are a great 1-2 combo, but Alsson seems like he's starting to slip up some times. In random news We are crazy good at scoring directly off free kicks, Barkley, Zivkovic, and Emile-Hojbjerg all scored multiple direct free kicks. Harry Kane had an amazing year with 39 League goals, but it still comes close to Dybala's record setting year of 55 League goals. My U-18 team won the U-18 Champions League against AC Milan. Where's picture of my team in the spoiler. I won my 200th game 4-0 at home against Sunderland, and I won Manager of the Year again. +100 21/22 League Cup +200 21/22 FA Cup +200 21/22 Premier League + 1000 21/22 Champions League + 500 Milestone Win the Premier League/FA Cup/Champions League Treble within 13 years + 2000 points overall
  6. @fabreth nice job on the 5th place finish and congrats on the FA Cup, and Europa League run. I'm a little jealous of your HOD. @Jamie Cortez Nice season, and congrats on your 1st trophy. Welcome to the leader board guys (whenever @jaysdailydose decides to update it ).
  7. @jaysdailydose How dare you play a lot of FM and enjoy it!!! @fabreth Your 1st season sounds a lot like my 1st season, I ended up finishing 15th and got knocked out early in the FA Cup against a team I should have beat. That 16 year old CB looks amazing, he's going to be a great defender.
  8. Quick update as the Summer Transfer Window has ended. Our most expensive signing is Timothy Fosu - Mensah from Man Utd. The 23 year old will be starting at the box to box CM role when we play in our attacking formation, and as a Ball Winning Midfielder at DM in our defensive formation. We can play CM, DM, CB, and RB his talent and versatility I think justifies the price tag. Going into the offseason I wasn't planing to sell Kurzawa but Arsenal made a good offer and I knew Theo Hernandez was transfer listed. It pains me to sell Kurzawa as he's played so well since coming over from PSG but he's 28 and Hernandez is 5 years younger and just as good. Got Yarmolenko on loan to rotate with Lookman at AML but Lookman got hurt late in the preseason for 2-3 months so Yarmolenko got thrusted into the starting lineup and in his 1st 2 games has a goal and 2 assists. Those 2 assists came in his 1st game here in a 2-1 away win vs Chelsea. Craig Hendrite and Christopher Baines are my 1st 2 players from my youth intakes to be sold. This is our Champions League group, we beat Dortmund twice in groups last year and their our biggest challenge again this year, so I expect to win the group again this year. Other offseason news, Goodison Park is being expand by an extra 8,000 seats to put the stadium over 42,000 seats.
  9. @Beric Dondarrion Technically you wouldn't fail it, it's just labeled incomplete but I know what you mean. I hope you win the FA Cup next season because we are so close in points, which motivates me to keep winning everything I can.
  10. @Beric Dondarrion That's still a hell of a season FA Cup or not, back to back Premier League and Champions League titles is crazy. I'm still looking for my 1st Champions League title.
  11. Another season over means more trophies for Everton, as we finish with another Premier League title and FA Cup. This year we win the league by 4 points, with Man Utd coming in 2nd and chasing us the whole season. Unlike last year were we overtook Man Utd, and Tottenham late in the season, this year we were in 1st place for most of the year. We lead the Premier League in goals in no small part due to our world class strikers Lukaku and Belotti. Else where we lost to Tottrnham 1-0 in the League Cup final, and got knocked out in the Champions League Semi Final which included a crazy 5-4 loss at Goodison Park. But we finished the season on another high note as we beat Watford in the FA Cup 2-1 for our 3rd FA Cup and 1st Premier League/Fa Cup double. We were dominating for most of the year until we played Arsenal at the Emirates in the 1st game of May 6-1. It was a bad showing from the whole team but after that our entire defense just collapsed. It effected all members but no one was more effected then our CB leader Michael Keane. After that defeat Keane was borderline unplayable. All in all I can't complain about this year considering we won 3 trophies but it's frustrating knowing we could have won them all. We had a very easy FA Cup run; beating Blackburn 4-0 at home, Bournemouth 7-2 at home, Crystal Palace 4-0 at Crystal Palace, Stoke 3-1 at home, Nottingham Forest at Wembley 2-0, and Watford again at Wembley 2-1. We set a new FA Cup record scoring 22 goals in the competition, and finshed 22 goals scored to 4 allowed. Players of the competition are Belotti, and LaFont. We finished the season 3 points lower then last year, and I think the League as a whole was more competitive then last year. With Dybala going to PSG this summer Maurio Icardi scored the most goals this year. We started with key players Lukaku, Barkley, and Schniderlin missing months of time due to injury. Normal that would sink me but Belotti and Zivkovic went on a path of goal scoring destruction. When Lukaku came back in mid October, he picked up his form from last year and joined in on the goal scoring fun. Injuries in the midfield gave big time minutes to Luis Herrera, Hojbjerg, and Davies, and they delivered beautifully. Davies had 47 starts with 8 goals and 9 assists mainly playing the box to box role. Hojbjerg also had 47 starts and finished with 7 goals and 9 assists. Herrera had 24 starts and had 8 goals and 7 assists mainly playing at CAM while Barkley was hurt. The players of the season for me were Andrea Belotti (scored 42 goals and 14 assists in 52 games), Andrija Zivkovic (17 goals and 17 assists in 37 starts), and Kurt Zouma. We don't win the League or make a League Cup run without Belotti, and Zivkovic picking up the offensive slack in the 1st 3 months. Barkley, and Lukaku came back from their injuries and played like they didn't miss a beat. I have $109 mil to use for the summer market. I don't have any glaring weaknesses outside of depth. We played a ton of games as I want to win everything, and the injuries mounted up which really stressed us. So we will see were the market takes us, I'm still looking for a RB, and maybe a BWM DM.
