  1. Hi. Thanks for the reply. Yeah, I knew I'd have to give Telles a lot of game time. If I had Shaw + Rojo say, I could justify giving Telles game time but as I have Tierney and Shaw I can't really buy Telles, sell Shaw and relegate Tierney to being the 2nd DL. Not exactly struggling with HG players though. Just about met the 8 players requirement but haven't got a lot of room to play with until/unless I promote the youth players to first team such as Tuanzebe, Fosu-Mensah, Gomes and Chong etc.
  2. Should I sign Alex Telles for £30m? I am in November 2019. I have Luke Shaw and Kieran Tierney. I'm concerned about Shaw's injury proneness but selling him to make way for Telles would rob me of a HG (club) player.
  3. Overclockers. UK IT company's forums. forums.overclockers.co.uk I bid about £73m and after a bit of thinking they accepted it. The history page only shows the league info doesn't it? Doesn't show all games such as cup and European? Problem is now that Barca and Real Madrid have come in for Bailly and he wants to leave. Both clubs initial offers are lower than his actual value. His contract runs until end of season so might have to sell him. PSG came in for De Gea but I asked him to stay. Luckily his contract runs until 2023.
  4. Last season I used a 4-1-2-3 formation. Used Lukaku on Attacking Forward or Poacher. Rashford was used as a Poacher mainly. Martial I have barely used as a striker, almost exclusively as an AML. Arp I've barely used since I bought him so can't comment. Greenwood looks OK, will give him a few games next season to see how he progresses. Been on another forum I frequent and been suggested Belotti of Torino. £90m foreign club release fee so think I'll get him as the Lukaku money pretty much pays for Belotti's transfer fee. Trying to get Rashford to perform is a task! You know the Season Stats on a player's page? Any idea how to get the last season stats to show up? Want to better examine how Rashford did last season. I can tell you that he made 24 league appearances and scored 5 goals with an average rating of 6.78. I'm clearly not getting the right instructions/roles to get Rashford performing as I know he can.
  5. Real Madrid made an offer of £66.5m up-front with another £27.5 in 6 instalments to make a total of £94m for Lukaku. I rejected it even though Lukak said he wanted to go. I refused the offer. That set off a squad mutiny as they all feel I should let him go. They have now made another offer of £73m up-front with £30.5m in 6 instalments to total £103m. I don't think I'll be able to reject the offer, keep Lukaku and the rest of the squad happy. Lukaku is worth £55m and is on £180k a week. I have Rashford, Martial and Fiete Arp as my other strikers. Sanchez is out for 3 months with a torn calf muscle and is nearly 31 so I can't depend on him to be my long term striker. Should I sell Lukaku? I am about to start the 2019/2020 season. I have £85m of my transfer budget left, having spent £54m on Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and £53m on Daniele Rugani. Add on the £73m gives me at least £158m to spend. I'm trying to clear out Matic and Rojo which could add another £30m or so to the kitty. If I do sell Lukaku, who should I sign to replace him?
  6. I sold Valencia to Guangzhou for £12.75m pretty easily. He wanted to go for the $$$. I loaned Young to CSKA Moscow but have had to recall him due to injuries. Haven't tried to sell Fellaini yet but after managing to get two yellow cards in 3 minutes and a straight red in another match I want him gone. Rooney has started to decline on my save and Schweinsteiger, whilst good, is too old and slow, as is Carrick, so I think I'll get rid of those four to save a bulk in wages and replace them.
  7. Totally agree with you. If he were playing regular first team football and was worth a bit more I'd be happier handing over £25m but I think I could have got AC Milan down to £20-22m had I really tried. I think I'll leave him at AC Milan and see how he develops and go back later when he actually starts to show signs of fulfilling his potential.
  8. Buying/Selling: Buying Player Name: Gianluigi Donnarumma Your Team: Manchester United Buyer/Seller: AC Milan Player's Value: £325k Offer: £25m (AC Milan asked for £41m to begin with) Transfer/Wage Budget: £170m Patch: 16.3.1 Season: May 2018 Looking to future proof the goalkeeping position at Utd and Donnarumma seems to be THE young GK on FM16 to invest in. I'm happy to have got AC Milan to accept a £25m bid down from their initial request of £41m but is £25m a lot for a player worth £325k aged 19 and who may not live up to the hype? I currently have De Gea as my main GK with Ron-Robert Zieler as my backup. Ilias Moutha Sebtaoui, Joel Pereira and Vanja Milinkovic Savic are my U21s GKs. Would it be better for me to save the £25m for now and develop one of those three as a long-term De Gea backup? Donnarumma would eventually become the main GK though!
  9. I have Antonio Pintus for Man Utd. He gives me 5* for strength.Jose Sambade gives me 5* for shot stopping.
  10. Has anyone managed to get the board to agree to a stadium expansion? If they have what size stadium did you get and how much more money did the club bring in from gate receipts? On my save Old Trafford is being expanded from 75,635 to 91,635. Last season my highest gate receipts was £2.4m and the club brought in £27.7m in total. I'd like to know if the board uses some of the extra income to pay off the loans or whether they let me spend it!
  11. Hi Neil. This looks to be fixed with 16.3.0. Thanks! I couldn't see anything in the changelist so I clicked on the FM logo with Steam already open and it worked.
  12. Reckon you must be in 2018 as Robertson is 24 on your save.By Jorge do you mean Jorge Torres Nilo at Tigres or Jorge at Flamengo? Both are still at their original clubs. Jonny the D RL is still at Celta. Jose Gaya signed for Man City this past summer (2016) for £35.5m so he's probably out of my reach without shelling out a lot for him which for a backup DL is not what I want to be doing. Ricardo Rodriguez is still at Wolfsburg. He looks more like a Shaw rival than a backup and the game considers him to be half a star better than Shaw. I don't mind having a better DL than Shaw but it does mean getting rid of Shaw as I don't think I can convince him to be a backup DL. Getting rid of Shaw would also hurt my homegrown numbers. He qualifies as a trained in nation player and is due to become a trained at club player at the end of June 2017. Jetro Willems signed for Lazio in January 2016 for £11.25m. Caner Erkin is still at Fenerbahce. Haven't scouted him yet so put in a request for a report. Layvin Kurzawa signed for PSG in July 2015 for £17.25m. Faouzi Ghoulam is still at Napoli. Think I will buy Robertson and look at Jorge/Jonny later on. Jonny looks good to be a backup for both sides of the defence.
  13. Howdy SpillBlood. Who else would you suggest/recommend instead of Robertson?
  14. Buying/Selling: Buying Player Name: Andrew Robertson Your Team: Manchester United Buyer/Seller: Hull Player's Value: £6.75m Offer: £8m possibly rising to £9.5m Transfer/Wage Budget: £76m Patch: 16.2 Season: 2nd (December 2016)Daley Blind has 9 for pace after having spent a total of 8 months out with knee tendonitis over two injury periods. Looking for a backup DL to Luke Shaw so obviously need someone who is willing to be a backup and not someone who will rival Shaw for the first team DL spot. Rojo has left the club and Blackett is on loan at Celtic.
  15. Hi all. I'm at Old Trafford in December 2016 and I would like a backup DL for Shaw. Rojo left the previous summer and Blackett is on loan at Celtic. Daley Blind has had two 4 month injury layoffs with knee tendonitis which might explain why his pace has gone from 11 to 9 making him too slow to be a serious backup to Shaw. I've bid £8m on Hull's Andrew Robertson and he's agreed a contract and is about to sign unless anyone can suggest a decent backup DL. Not interested in a rival first team player. Budget would be no more than £15m but as it's a backup DL I'd like, preferably no more than £10m. Cheers.
