  1. Parrott is still really young so is in my under 23 team but I have seen him turn out great on previous saves. Yeah I have Foyth, Sanchez, Skipp, Parott and Winks earmarked for the first team over the next couple of years and I am giving them plenty of game time now. Onomah will be a squad player too so a good healthy amount of prospects who can play a role in the first team. To add to Lloris,Tierney, Alli, Son, Sancho, Aouar, Mbappe and Lucas Moura who are all untouchable and will be around for a long time so I have a good core of 14/15 players who will form the bulk of my squad forthe next 6-7 years plus. I have interest in Eriksen though for aroundn 80m, he is nearly 28 and I have a lot of good options in the middle so i might cash in on him as our finances arent great after signing Mbappe for 150m upfront plus 30m add ons and a huge contract maxed out with bonuses etc To be honest its just nice to be a good team for the first time on FM19 and not need a mass influx of players each season to move up the levels. I can just focus on the players I have and adding 1 or 2 each year.
  2. Wanyama and Aurier are beasts! I sold Kane a bit cheaply yeah but it was worth it to get Mbappe in, he's younger, faster and better to watch and fit in how I want my front 3 to be( fluid, agile and quick) I just prefer Sancho on the right and Lucas Moura has been scoring a fair bit from the left but that's just how it was that game I switch up Mbappe, Son, Sancho and Lucas between all 3 positions. I really like the look of Skipp and Parott too. Top of the league in November so hoping to win my first PL title on fm19
  3. They are just so so good. So much fun! Such a solid squad. I have basically just kept the same squad as real life but replaced Rose, Trippier, Dier, Sissoko and Lamela with Tierney, Walker-peters, Auoar, Onomah, Sancho and Mbappe! I am giving a lot of game time to the youngsters too. So strong at the back. Nice mix of steel and silk in midfield with Wanyama, Eriksen and Auoar. The latter 2 are like a couple of Rolls Royces gliding about in the middle and then masses of quality pace and agility up front with Jadon Sancho, Lucas Moura/Son and Mbappe wow. As I said at the start Spurs have some players I really like and I have added a handful of my favourite players to that too. I like this team so much I spend a lot of time watching extended highlights to watch them play ha ha. Won away at Bayern and Chelsea already in the 2nd season and top of the league after 10 games. I cant see much at all needing done in the transfer market over the next few years either just the odd tiny tweak here and there. Marcus Edwards looks a decent prospect too who gets on my bench and Troy Parrott looks like the next Harry Kane. I was happy to sell Kane as I planned on more pace up top. The likes of Foyth, Davinson Sanchez, Winks and Oliver Skipp as ready made replacements to step in the first 11 in the near future too. I can see this been a long save of finally collecting come trophies! Keeping the bulk of the same squad has meant I have maximum team cohesion too. Big fan of the squad Spurs have put together in real life too and how they have done it
  4. @Dwells2015 I came 4th in my first season, lost the leage cup final to Liverpool 0-1 in Extra time, lost to Man U in the FA cup 4th round and went out of the CL in the last 16 at Barcelona 3-2 on aggregate I wanted some more pace in attack and boy did i get it, I was happy to take 100m for Kane as I signed the alien! Plan to just make 2 top quality signings each summer and the team looks good for season 2
  5. Huge win over Man City flying start and only 1 goal conceded in 6 games
  6. I think I am going too. I was looking into a Benfica one or Porto one too but they have both already won the European cup and worried I would get bored of the league easy and I could always do that save after. Monaco are tempting too. Spurs tick all the boxes for me. Winning the PL is realistic but still a massive achievement and the league would never become easy in England whilst trying to win the CL. They could attract star players so I have the potential to eventually buy the likes of Mbappe etc. Cracking new stadium. The only club I don't really dislike out the top 6 I also really like Alderweireld, Davinson Sanchez, Vertonghen, Eriksen, Son, Lucas Moura and even Alli has insane attributes on the game. I usually feel guilty starting as a big team but I have definitley served my apprentiship on FM19 and earned the right. I think Newcastle or Fiorentina are the best team I have been so far
  7. Yeah it is but you know how it is once the passion has gone that's it. Out of them 2 I would definitely go Bournemouth they have some really good players. I like managing in England but it just feels like if you aren't one of the top 6 you are just making up the numbers. I don't know where to go next as I dont think I have the heart to slog through the championship again. Tempted to finally do a long Spurs save and try win loads of trophies and end up with a squad of superstars
  8. Brentford save done over and out. Had a tough set of fixtures to start and looking like mid table again and I've just lost my zest for it :/. Sometimes I just lose passion for a save after a while out of nowhere. I will be starting a new save tonight. I have never been a top team on FM19 yet so think it's time I treated myself to one and challenge for trophies and be in the big games
  9. After a full day of playing I have come to the end of season 5, 14th place finish and went on holiday for the last few months when it was clear we were only going to be lower mid table. Made the FA cup semi final but got beat 4-0 at Wembley by a ridicolous Man City with Mbappe. Restos arrives in January from Leverkusen and I have only made 2 signings ahead of season 6 which I think completes my team nicely. Josh Tymon for 19.5m from Everton and a club record 52.5m on Mikkel Cuisance from Monchengladbach. Squad is shaping up well and next season has to be the one to make a cup final or make 7th otherwise I will be tempted to end it as its getting tedious treading around lower mid table now
  10. Thanks! Really excited by them. Haland is a beast pace 17 and strength 17 Noordhoff looks like the next Frenkie De Jong and looking forward to seeing Jota and Clarke on the wings. Team coming alone nicely. A top centre half to go alongside Badiashille and a few better squad players away from European contention I reckon
  11. Thanks! The most enjoyable FM save I have had in a long long time and after 4 years it feels like it's all coming together and I think I'm at Brentford for the long haul now so who knows what journey is in store and when and where it will end!
  12. Big turnover of players and big breakthroughs in the market and quality of signings ahead of season 5 and hopefully a top 10 push. A lot of established players and favourites have left but have been replaced with quality. Butland wouldnt sign a new deal and he had 1 year left so he had to go and I got great money for Benrahma. Sad to see Bongiovanni go but I made a slight profit on him and he never really caught fire last season. That gave me 110m to play with to build my new team. Really excited about the pace in that attack and the young dutch midfield wonderkid off Ajax looks a real player. I raided the three relegated teams Brighton, Palace and Wolves for some bargains to strengthen at the back with Jonny and @warlock favourite Max Aarons arriving. This is the best my team has looked by far and on paper looks a mid table team at least. Diogo Jota and Jack Clarke on the wings will be good to watch and all topped off with smashing my transfer record on the beast Haling! Just topped it off with the final deal of the summer, Lacazette on a free after he was released by Arsenal but he still looks great
  13. I really like how this beast is developing too, signed him for 7m from Monaco in the first season. Him and Butland are a big part of why we are so good at the back
  14. Brentford update end of season 4- 40pts mark and survival! We started really well and were 8th in October playing counter attack but then tailed off to end up in a respectable 15th. By far the tightest defence in the bottom half but not many goals scored at all and loads of draws. 50m to spend to push on for top half next season. Stadium expansion and youth upgrade completed next season too. I am starting to look at bigger jobs though now, I will try get top half next season and if not I think I will get itchy feet to move to a bigger club on this save.
