  1. Is anyone having problems with the board expectation of signing English players? I have signed Jude Bellingham, Jadon Sancho, Max Aarons and have James Maddison coming at the end of the season (along with a couple of young prospects). But outside of hoovering up any half decent youngsters outsifde of the Prem, it costs a fortune to buy English and most of them are either average or impossible to buy (Sterling, TAA, Rashford). I find myself having to spend money on mid-range English youth prospects, just to satisfy them enough to buy someone foreign. They don't even want Scottish/Irish players!
  2. I always get frustrated when i go to see a player's 'history' tab and see their 'career' stats. It only shows their league stats. There is no drop down or option to view all stats combined (domestic cup, continental club competitions etc). Can there be a filter added, so even if the league is the default setting, it can be changed to show all of their stats?
  3. Where did you get that background photo package?
  4. I started with Arsenal, mainly because they have a load of players to sell for half-decent cash, meaning I could build my own squad. They have some talent to build around (Bellerin, Leno, Torreira, Auba/Laca) and lots of promising youngsters. In my first season, I signed; Kieran Tierney (£23m) Matthis De Ligt (£29m) Lucas Paqueta (£16.5m) Hirving Lozano (£18.5m) Cristian Pavon (£11.5m - Delayed his arrival until 19/20 to develop further at Boca) Pedrag Rajkovic (£3.9m [Jan 19] - Delayed his arrival until 19/20 to develop further) Daniele Rugani (£38.5m [Jan 19] - Delayed his arrival until 19/20 to allow me time to sell some players before he arrived) ...and sold; Granit Xhaka (£9.5m - I really don't like him as a player in real-life, far too lazy, so was always going to sell him. Could have got more for him had I played him regularly). Laurent Koscielny (£28.5m - constantly injured and I could not turn down that sort of money for someone his age) Mohamed Elneny (£9m - Don't rate him) Shokradan Mustafi (£24.5m - Don't rate him, and he was unhappy) Emiliano Martinez (£7.5m - Don't rate him) Danny Welbeck (left at the end of his contract) Petr Cech (retired) Stephan Lichsteiner (retired) Nacho Monreal (left at the end of his contract) Sead Kolasinic (£25m - Don't rate him) I played a 4-2-3-1 formation, with Lucas Torreira dominating in midfield. Both full-backs were ‘CWB’, and tried to play Lacazette out wide on the right. He did OK there, but ideally wanted someone better suited. I played positively, with a modified gegenpress/direct tika-taka. I ended up winning the Premier League, a handful of points ahead of Man City. My home record was almost flawless, and managed to score quite a few goals on the road. GK: Leno (SK) RB: Bellerin (CWB), LB: Tierney (CWB), CB: Sokratis (CD) and De Ligt (BPD) MC: Torreira (DLP - D) and Paqueta (BBM - S) AML; Lozano (IF - S), AMC; Ozil (AP - S), AMR; Laca (W - S) STR; Auba (AF - A) I have started my second season, and made the following signings before the season started; Jadon Sancho (£64m - Lozano wasn't great, and wanted to see how good Sancho can become. Also half an eye on Brexit!) Sergej Milinkovic-Savic (£94m - arguably the best BBM on the game) Harry Maguire (£25m – Leicester were relegated, so snapped him up on the cheap) Gedson Fernandes (£40m - Delayed until 20/21 to allow further time to develop, and to phase Ramsey out) And sold; Henrikh Mhkitariyan – (£30m - Didn't really have a position for him, and not a huge fan in real-life. he's on huge wages and jumped at the chance to move him on) Calum Chambers (£10m - Don't rate him) Rob Holding (£7m - Don't rate him) David Ospina (£10m - Don't rate him) Takuma Asano (£6m - Don't rate him) I have started off really well, keeping clean-sheets in 9/11 games so far in my second season. My preferred starting XI is; GK: Leno RB: Bellerin, LB: Tierney, CB: Rugani and De Ligt MC: Milinkovic-Savic and Paqueta/Torreira AML; Sancho, AMC; Ozil, AMR; Pavon/Nelson STR; Auba/Laca I rotate almost every game, to make sure I keep everyone happy. That is the toughest task I find. I am trying to focus more on home-grown talent moving forward, as it has always been something I like to build around. Once Si sort out the injury bug (it is a JOKE), it'll be a little easier.
