  1. Yes, see my post about defenders above.
  2. YACS2:
  3. I play a very unAjax 4-4-2! I'll post about my midfielders and then for awards after that.
  4. Continuing on from my previous post… Centre Backs Joël Veltman did pretty well for me before securing a big money move to Milan. He was swiftly moved on by them though. Mike van der Hoorn also left for a reasonable fee and has since bounced around a bit before ending up at Twente. Jairo Riedewald is an interesting one. I actually sold him to Atletico for £21m, only to buy him back for an extra £5m a few seasons later. Matthijs de Ligt is one of the youngsters that has made the grade and is now a first team regular. So those are two of my centrebacks. I have the following other three (one too many for my liking but I’m not sure which to get rid of – suggestions welcome) I think Orban might be the one I get rid of, but I like his personality for tutoring.
  5. Ok, I may stretch this over a few posts. Goalkeepers Cillessen stayed with me until 2018/19 when he made a big money move to Benfica: I don't currently have a goalkeeper exciting enough to bother screenshoting. Fullbacks The guys you've quoted above have all moved on: Kenny Tete has somehow ended up at Barca after leaving me to join Napoli, although I don't think he's all that good personally. Ricardo van Rhijn went to Cagliari and has stayed there since: Darren Sidoel went to PSV for £2m, Teun van Zweeden was released and picked up by Groningen, Leeroy Owusu left for Perugia for £3.9m, Mitchell Dijks went to Leipzig for £5m, Nicolai Boilesen also ended up at Groningen (£575k), Nick Viergever went to Mainz for £2.8m and Mauro Savastano joined Bologna for £4.5m. As for my current squad, my right back position is fought out between a retrained Marcelo Meli and an extremely promising regen Michiel van Dam who has just broken inot the first team this season: At left back, I brought Jetro Willems back from a short spell in England and he is joined by a young Turkish regen Canberk Yağcı: So all in all, I'm pretty satisfied with the sales and the players I brought in at fullback. Meli is getting a little old now, so I'm look to replace him soon I think.
  6. I'm in the middle of a very enjoyable Ajax game (now in season 2020/21). Some of the youngsters have turned out great. Some are still at the club, some moved on for big money and others moved on and then came back once my reputation had built up a bit. I've also had a couple of excellent regens come through the youth system and I've picked up a few in the transfer market too. On the pitch, I've won the Eredivisie every year as you might expect but I also won the Champions League in 2017/18, lost in the semifinal the following year and lost in the final last season. Let me know if you want to know how individual players have turned out and/or where they've ended up.
  7. Interesting round-up, thanks. Can you show us some of your best regens please?
  8. Jeff suffered a lot of niggling injuries for me and it meant he never really got a look in and perhaps didn't progress quite as well as he might have. He had a couple of good seasons out on loan though and I decided to sell him when I got a decent offer from Madrid:
  9. I have them both at Arsenal and Dybala is vastly superior:
  10. He is English with Hungarian second nationality. And arsenalthebest, Dybala cost me 61m.
  11. I'm definitely not in debt anymore... Bit sad to see Theo leave and Jeff as well I guess because he's one of the original squad members.
  12. Dirk Kuyt and Luca Toni? Didn't realise you were playing FM08
  13. Vlad has spent the 2019/20 season on loan at Real Madrid. He's looking good and will be pushing for a place in the first team squad next season.
  14. Dybala cost me 61m so wasn't cheap, but he is worth it. I'm also managing Ajax in my game so have experience with quite a few players. In terms of how good they've been for me Gaya is the best left back, then Jorge and Willems are roughly equal. Augustinsson is slightly further behind the three of them. I haven't managed any of the others. For centre backs, I have managed Varane, Laporte and Riedewald and all of them are very good. De Ligt at Ajax is also very good, but requires a lot of work to develop to a high level. In terms of strikers, if you don't want Dybala, I can recommend Embolo as well.
  15. Gaya, Laporte and Dybala would be my picks for the positions you need, but everyone has them so you might want to try someone else...
