  1. I'm noticing a lot of near post goals from open play. Like, far too many.
  2. Having good scouting stats is important such as Judging Player Ability/Potential. Basically you want the general stats for any staff member to be as high as possible. Things like Mental, Determination, Motivating etc. Take a look at some of these guys. They're all excellent HoYD's: Michael Roach (Liverpool) Dave Parnaby (Middlesbrough) Bernhard Peters (Hoffenheim) Rodolfo Borrell (Unemployed, previously of Liverpool)
  3. Thanks man. Really interesting Shame Hendo didn't stay in the game.
  4. Can you tell me what Suarez, Gerrard and Henderson are up to? Maybe Brendan Rodgers too please? He usually ends up as England manager within a few years on my game. Thanks.
  5. Hey guys. I've not long started a Liverpool game. Born and bred here and have supported them for as long as I can remember, so I'm looking forward to getting us back to where we belong, at the top of European football. Transfers IN: Blaise Matuidi £6m Will Hughes £8m Moussa Dembele £525k Tried to sign Vietto but Barcelona pinched him. I also had a deal agreed for Kevin Trapp as backup/replacement for Mignolet but I don't quite have enough to finance the deal. Transfers OUT: Flanagan, Roddan and Morgan out on loan. Tried to sell Jones and Aspas but with no luck. I'm aiming to finish in a Europa League position at the very least, but hoping to grab top 4. It'd be nice to win one of the domestic cups too. The squad needs work and I don't quite have enough to do that yet, but with a top 4 finish and a couple of sales next summer, I should be able to mould it into the team I want. The additions I've made only start the overall strengthening process. So far I've played Man City and West Ham in the league, winning 2-1 and losing 2-0 and I've just played Burton in the Capital One Cup, winning 1-0 with fringe players.
  6. Hello chaps. I've started a new career with the Villains. I'm hoping to achieve great things over the coming seasons, but I'm expecting a tough start given the lack of financial backing. So far I've played the first league game of the season against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park and managed to win 1-0 thanks to a Helenius goal. Benteke has picked up an injury keeping him out for the next 4 months which is annoying. The only signings I've made have been Mahamadou Diarra and Anthony Reveillere for free. I've sold Chris Herd to Crystal Palace for £1.4m and loaned out a few reserve players. I've tried asking for money but Randy Lerner isn't having any of it, so it looks like I'm stuck with the squad I have for now. Hopefully I can either sell somebody or get some help from the board for the January window. My objective this season is to finish in a Europa League position, possibly win one of the domestic cups and play steady possession football successfully. NB: Can somebody enlighten me as to how you post screenshots of just part of the game window eg the league table or tactics screen? I've noticed a lot of people doing it and I'm not sure how. Thanks!
  7. I originally posted this in the bugs thread and had no replies after waiting a few weeks. I thought I'd ask here. The board granted upgrade requests at the start of the first season in 2012. It is now 2015 and for last 2 seasons the date for completion has been pushed back a year each time. Does anybody know why? I have a lot of money in the bank at the start of the season (around £80m). I'm also able to request the upgrades again and it shows up twice on the 'boardroom' screen. I'm worried this will cause 2 sets of money to come out. Can anyone advise? Thanks in advance.
  8. Ok cheers guys. I'll try posting this in the bugs forum too.

  10. Welcome aboard JensenS and Koko44. Good luck with your saves! Keep us updated on your progress MTS, It was a complete mess by me haha. I had forgotten to offer new contracts to players with 12 months left and by the time January ended I noticed the 'transfer' icon next to his name. I completely messed up there. It's worked out ok in the end, because I now have both Merkel and Maher to play there, and despite trying to sell VDV, I will be keeping him as nobody was interested in signing him. Needless to say though, I've learned a valuable lesson there.
  11. Nice start to the new season Michael. I like your transfer dealings aswell. Well played I'm a couple of games into season 4 (2015/16 season). There's been more transfers with some regulars under my reign leaving for pastures new. But first, here's how I finished last season in the league: Transfers done in the summer: We were knocked out of the group stages in the CL last season which was very disappointing. Got to the quarter finals of the Europa League and was knocked out by My focus is definitely the CL this season. It's the only major trophy we are yet to win under my reign. Ter Stegen requested to leave for a bigger club despite winning the league and cup in his debut season. I promised him I would deliver the CL trophy within 2 seasons and he has agreed to stay. Normally I would get rid of him if he doesn't want to stay, but he's arguably the best young keeper on the game. I will see how things go at the end of this season and consider selling him for a large profit and bringing in someone similar in ability.
  12. Congratulations on the league and cup wins michaelthestrange! Here's to many more in future seasons. Öztunali isn't too good in my game. He was actually let go for free at the end of season 2 and now plays for Koblenz in the lower German leagues. It's a shame really.
  13. Thanks guys I too am considering letting VDV go either in Jan or at the end of the season. Adryan is very promising and hasn't let me down when called upon and VDV will command a decent enough fee before his stats start to deteriorate rapidly. Decisions decisions...
  14. While I'm here I might as well post a quick update. League table at end of season 2: Transfers at the start of 3rd season: Current set up:
  15. Beister's main weakness according to my coaches is his 'team player' stat. He seems to be a naturally greedy player. I usually play him as a AMR set as a winger and he usually performs well for me. Using him as an inside forward from the AMR position is smart because he is left footed and because if his deep rooted desire to shoot rather than pass, he should get plenty of opportunities. I wouldn't play him as a striker though, as it is a waste of a good young German winger
