  1. From the players he sold around £115k was added to the wage budget is my guess.
  2. I offered Karl Darlow to Real Madrid for a very high fee. They came back with a £9M bid. I negotiated and asked for £14M + £8M in instalments (24 months) and they accepted it!
  3. Oh sorry, It was a response to the person who started this thread. It’s a link with the skins in the opening post.
  4. I’m really enjoying life in the EFL Championship with my high-flying Brentford FC. The team has adapted well to the new RB Leipzig inspired high-pressing and attacking 4-2-2-2 formation, already 20 wins and 78 goals scored after 23 games in the league. Ivan Toney has been absolutely magnificent, scored 26 goals in the 22 games he’s played. He’s been linked up with Bryan Mbeumo in attack and Mbeumo has scored 22 goals in 21 games. Brought Ethan Laird and Teden Mengi in on loan from Manchester United, Mohamed Daramy signed from FC Copenhagen in a £5M deal and from FC Porto B came Lucas Gomes for a small fee of only £5k and Gonçalo Borges for £90k. Young winger Joe Adams was sold to Brighton for £6,5M.
  5. In order to get your custom graphics to work after the latest update: 1. Use the skins in the link in your opening post. 2. Open the first skin and edit the skin_config.xml file and replace the current version in the file with ”21.2.0” and save. 3. Transfer the skins-folder to your FM21 Touch location. 4. Start FM21 Touch and select the new skin, restart and it will work.
  6. I am! And it’s him. The papers said he used to do business in Italy and wants to appoint an Italian manager.
  7. Just had a takeover completed by a consortium led by Melitopol-based investor Vladimir Pronichev in October 2018!
  8. The transfer window first season has just closed. First team: Nothing. No players signed. No players sold. Reserves: Yes! This is an area I invested heavily in. Bisseck (Köln), Nunumete (Heerenveen), Imbrechts (Charleroi), Rogers (west Brom), Loader (Reading), Appiah (Nottingham Forest), Nzita (Anderlecht), Sea (Aston Villa), Tshibuabua (Saint-Etienne) and Nson Wa Saka (Caen) joined us. We also made a £6M deal with Guingamp to bring Marcus Thuram to Newcastle. The deal includes a two-season long loan deal back at Guingamp. So hopefully he can improve a lot there and join us as a much better player Dru Yearwood from Southend £2M and Tyrese Campbell from Stoke £4.1M has both signed for us but will join us next season. I have big hopes for both players. Exciting young winger from Bordeaux Dilane Bakwa signed a pre-contract and will join the club in January 2019.
  9. Good start to the season! Bournemouth also impressing. Any news on the takeover?
  10. Good signings! You could get Kenedy on another loan without any problems? Brexit yet? Kevin Mbabu Well done, looking forward to it
  11. This section is about the first team squad but in the reserves you can find interesting players like Yannick Touré, Deese Kasinga-Madia, Tyrique Bartlett and Freddie Woodman. You can also find Achraf Lazaar here, perfect backup to Paul Dummett? Goalkeepers ★★★★★★★★★★ Actually a decent part of the team. I really like Martin Dúbravka, I think he is a good sweeper keeper. Not a big fan of Karl Darlow though. Freddie Woodman knocking on the door from the reserves. Defenders ★★★★★★★★★★ Some good and strong centre-backs here. Jamaal Lascelles is the first name on the teamsheet. Federico Fernández has some really good defensive skills. In need of a new left back if Paul Dummett gets injured. DeAndre Yedlin with 19 pace. Midfielders ★★★★★★★★★★ Need some investment here. Central midfield is weak but Jonjo Shelvey is a perfect choice as a deep-lying playmaker. Kenedy and Matt Ritchie looks good on the wings. Isaac Hayden and Jacob Murphy are not ready yet for the Premier League yet. Forwards ★★★★★★★★★★ I actually like them. Salomón Rondón as a big target player, Yoshinori Muto a pressing forward and Ayoze Pérez a shadow striker.
  12. Seven first team players have signed for Newcastle United during the summer. Ball playing centre-back Fabian Schär signed from relegated Deportivo, Federico Fernández and World Cup player Ki Sung-yeung joined from Swansea, Yoshinori Muto from Mainz and striker Salomón Rondón joined Newcastle on a one-year loan deal from West Brom. Brazilian winger Kenedy extended his loan from Chelsea for another year and Martin Dúbravka, who was on loan last season, signed a permanent deal. However the fans saw favourite striker Alexander Mitrovic leave the club. He signed for Fulham. Other players who also left the club were Jesús Gámez (free transfer), Mikel Merino (Real Sociedad), Chancel Mbemba (Porto), Matz Sels (Strasbourg), Dwight Gayle (West Brom loan) and Henri Saivet (Bursaspor loan). Three players at the club are assigned to captain roles. All of them have been at the club for a long period of time (compared to other first team players) and are an important part of the squad. Jamaal Lascelles, Jonjo Shelvey and Paul Dummett. Some notable players to play for the club are Paul Gascoigne, Kevin Keegan, Les Ferdinand, Alan Shearer, David Ginola, Robert Lee, Gary Speed, Hughie Gallacher, Malcolm Mcdonald, Jackie Milburn, Joe Harvey, Nolberto Solano, Faustino Asprilla, Philippe Albert and Shay Given. Mike Ashley is the owner of Newcastle United. He doesn't care about the club. The lack of investement is there for everyone to see. Not only in the first team, but also in the reserves and in the facilities. However you actually get £23M (FM Touch version) to spend in the first season. Why should you start a Football Manager 2019 save with Newcastle United? What makes them interesting? ✓ £23M in transfer budget to spend on new players. ✓ The club is for sale! Who will the new owner be? A tycoon? ✓ A sleeping giant. A city who breathes football. ✓ Remember the days when they played in the Champions League? Can you bring European football back to Tyneside? ✓ Build your team around captain Jamaal Lascelles. ✓ A stadium capacity of 52 354 supporters. ✓ Enjoy the passion of English football. ✓ Invest in youth and bring future club legends through the academy.
