  1. @Delial I would say the problem with your shadow striker role with advanced forward, i/ that they are running into the same space, so you have no one in the hole. If you were to play Gotze as a false 9 then you would get Reus running in behind the defence, however this would mean no Paco Alcacer Gotze would pull defenders out of position and then Reus would exploit the space
  2. Season 2 Overview League - Back to back league titles, secured with 3 games to go hitting a solid 80 points. The first 15 games were a struggle and then my team kicked into gear, winning 14 and drawing 2 of the next 16 matches, that pretty much secured the league opening up a double figure point lead. I was much better this season away from home and as usual making Signal Iduna Park a fortress, I picked up 46 points at home and 34 away fro home. UCL - Very similar to last season, this time i won the 1st leg at home 2-0 (3-1 Last season) then i lost 3-0 away to 2 late goals com
  3. Summer Transfer Activity Incoming Lavro Majer - A fantasic player for 5m, possess all the attributes to play as an Attacking Midfielder - Support or Advanced Playmaker - Attack, signed a 'rotation' contract, so he will provide cover for Pulisic Thomas Partey - He is a very good all round midifielder, snapped up for 10.5m, he is very similar to Delaney and therefore will provide cover that i didn't have for last season, so Delaney can have some games off Hudson-Odoi - I wanted to link up Reiss Nelson and Jadon Sancho, having the two London young kids back together,
  4. @zlatanera yeah I see what you mean, I played Gotze as an Engache in the last 2 games of the season and he played much better, so it’s a choice of keeping him as back up to Pulisic or seeing if I can move him on, I like the look of Havert as an Attacking Mid - Support if I can improve his long shots, but then I would have to do a reshuffle and drop Bruun Larsen who just contributed 11 goals and 10 assists I have Arp away on loan for 2 years, however he can be recalled and will most likely recall him and Vagnoman, Alcacer contributed 17 goals but I prefer my striker to be getting 2
  5. @Daws88 Yeah i must say i don't think "Advanced Playmaker - Support" players are very effective on this game at all but congrats on the , I think the Leipzig save would be the easiest save to beat your Media Prediction (11th) they always seem to be near the top and have to top quality players in Upamecano, Werner, Bruma, Forsberg and Saracchi etc. @lblanc Thank You! Oh you made some good profit there, i am tempted to go and make a big signing this summer for a goalkeeper, Onana is not much better and if i can make quick profit on him i'll be happy, i have a transfer budget of 128m Euros and 4
  6. It was all worth staying up for...... Super Sub Alexander Isak clinches league title for Dortmund Leipzig did score in the 95th min to win 1-0 themselves! The Run In League - I thought i blown my chances when i lost at home to Schalke, thanks to a 92nd min goal from a indirect-fk, my goal difference was significantly lower and i was 2 points behind with 4 games to go, Leipzig were on a fantastic run and had also just made the cup final. However what a finish to the season, they truly showed their attacking skills to seal the league on goal difference! The 1-1 resu
  7. @zlatanera Haha that is crazy? Yeah unfortunately my laptop processor is only 1.6Ghz so the full FM doesn't run the fastest, so its the touch, I enjoy it more though tbh, I find it like a modernised version of FM08 (Favourite One) The Winter Transfer Window is over and my transfers for the season are looking like this: My squad is currently a bit thin, but i did go out of the German Cup 1-0 to Wolfsburg (Away), however my league form is looking good (7 Wins 2 Draws in Last 9) I beat Spurs 3-1 at Home in UCL Last 16 1st Leg, so hoping i can manage a positive result in the 2nd Leg.
  8. @zlatanera Haha the groups were very similar! Even the league was similar, what do you guys @zlatanera & @lblanc think of Burki? He is not playing great for myself at all, considering a January sale. **I started again when i done those transfer things last time, i wanted to give my full team the chance like @zlatanera did**
  9. 1st Season Overview I am looking for a strong second half of the season, I am still within reach of the top but inconsistency is costing me, i can't find the perfect tactic as of yet. But still in 3 competitions and board confidence is at 56% so all sets up for an exciting finish to the season. UCL Group Very similar to Zlatanera with my UCL Group, the only difference was me getting the young exciting Club Brugge side, who are in Dortmund's real life UCL Group. I was happy to with the 2nd place finish, Liverpool have a great side for FM, full of goals, pace and power, then J
  10. Yeah tough group that! Will most likely need to win your home games and grab a win away to Celtic to qualify
  11. Sounds good to me! I like the traditional approach, they have been great to watch this season Good Luck 👍🏻
  12. Haha I know I done both, I was drawn to Leverkusen cause I was surprised they have never won the league title, then I got interested and started to understand why, but all my efforts have gone into this one, inspired by the Ajax thread
  13. Thank you, it will be updated now, just a little more detailed, was more that I am enjoying watching Dortmund this season and I’m about to do a long save with them, thought I’d try and gain some interest from others for their saves
  14. Squad Analysis Goalkeepers Roman Burki’s your number one, Marvin Hitz is a great number 2 to have and if needed can be called upon without any doubt that your team will collapse, as shown in the 3-2 against Bayern Munich this season. Burki is 27 now therefore has a good 5 years in his no problem, he has been in exceptional form this season and shown just why his stats are high for a sweeper keeper, allowing your team to dominate the ball high up the pitch. There is a good goalkeeper in the under 19s called Luca Unbehaun who has great potential. You might want to invest
