  1. Is Meunier likely to keep his place at full back for the next match?
  2. Would any Liverpool fans take Torres back if he wanted to return? Even at a cut price?
  3. Anyone tried Fulham? Is there a Fulham thread?
  4. Started a new game on the 10.2 patch for one last go at FM12. Can't sign anyone which is quite frustrating but have had a good pre-season despite loads of injuries. Hopefully the financial situation improves ahead of season 2 so some players can be purchased as some of the older players' contracts expire at the end of the first season.
  5. Will Giroud & Podolski be fit in time to start the start of the season?
  6. What is our squad looking like for the European game against FC Gomel? No Carroll, Suarez, Bellamy or Borini (?) upfront - who will fill the void upfront?!
  7. Lost my first game of the season at home to Spurs in the League on the 12.2 patch. Signed Guti & M.Diarra. Lined up as the following: Schwarzer ; Baird Hughes Hangeland Riise ; Diarra ; Murphy Dempsey ; Duff Dembele ; Pogrebnyak Pog didn't have a good game and missed a few chances - have set his hold up play to 'yes' so that he can try and bring the others in to play more and have also set my AMr and AMl to swap positions. Have Hughes and Hangeland as ball playing defenders with a stopper/covering defender partnership. Not all that convinced by Senderos due to his lack of mobility/speed and have sold Halliche so only really have Grygera & Baird as back-ups for the CD slots. Sent Frei out on loan to gain 1st team experiences with Leeds.
  8. Can't believe we missed out on the likes of Junior Hoilett? Would have been a good signing.
  9. Kelly/Baird or Grygera at RB? Thinking Kelly purely down to his faster pace than the others. Should probably try and play Grygera in Cup Games and Baird in Europa League? Trying to sign M.Diarra on a free. Started up a new save so trying to bring in some new players/staff before the first game of the new season. Would Guti be worth a punt on a free? Also, is Briggs more than capable for starting PL matches at LB in the first season?
  10. Brilliant updates Llew. What tactics are using mate? Also, what player instructions? Must say the updates look very professional; I enjoy reading them.
  11. I played with the 4-2-2-2 formation in the first season. Often lined up with the following : Schwarzer - Baird - Hangeland - Hughes - Riise , Murphy (deep lying playmaker) - Sidwell (BWMs) , Ruiz (if) , Dembele (ap) , Wilfried (TMa) - Johnson (poacher) My strikers now are Zamora, AJ, Wilfried, Fierro, Sa and i suppose you can count Trotta also. Can't seem to shift Duff though and he is on 40k a week. Trying to get in some wingers with pace as i only really have Ruiz and Dembele!
  12. Bought Cairney in the mindset that he would eventually replace the ageing Murphy as a deep lying playmaker or advanced playmaker type of role. Thinking of selling Etuhu as well considering I have both Sidwell (who played very well in the first season) and now Mariga. By the way I also managed to beat a host of clubs to the free signing of Carlos Fierro on a free transfer 8) I see him as a replacement for AJ and could eventually be my new poacher. elgreenio, unfortunately Bendtner won't even enter contract talks with me, what can i do to try and get round this? :/ cheers
  13. Was taken over by a new owner in a takeover and was given 10 million to spend ahead of the new season so will definitely have to sell a few more to raise that. Simon Davies has been sold to Birmingham for 400k so that has freed up 30k in wages already. elgreenio what do you makes of the likes of Chris Wood and Billy Sharp etc? only reason i ask is that Bendtner won't even enter into contract negotiations for a start. Also on the look out for a pacey winger , or two. Trying to buy Tom Cairney also. What strikers would you recommend , would you delve into the championship?
  14. Well, time for another update seeing as I have completed my first season with Fulham. We finished in 7th position on 56 points. P38, W16, D8, L14. Goals for 48. Goals against 52. Finished 15 points behind 6th placed Arsenal and 4 points ahead of 8th placed Blackburn. So all in all a respectable position in the league and one that i am happy with. Wilfried finished my top goalscorer with 16 goals in 26 appearances, ahead of AJ with 12 goals. Bobby Zamora only managed 10 goals in 40 appearances for us, however he was instrumental with a lot of assists. Managed to reach the FA Cup 6th round where I was beaten 1-0 at home by Arsenal. In the Europa League, I was knocked out in the 1st qualifying round by Hannover 96 of Germany over the 2 legs. In the 1st leg at home they managed to beat us 1-0 with their star man Abdellaoue scoring. We were missing Hangeland for this match and we could not cope with the pace of their frontmen. In the 2nd leg out in Germany they tanked us 5-2 with their other striker Ya Konan bagging a hat-trick for himself. However, 5-2 seemed a bit harsh as we wasted quite a number of chances also. Ahead of the 2nd season I have only made 1 signing, McDonald Mariga (DM) arriving on a free. Contemplating who to sell now. Schwarzer will be leaving on a free which means I will be left with Iliev and Stockdale to battle it out for the goalkeeping position. Thinking of selling Davies,Duff,Gecov and Zamora. Zamora didn't really do as well as I would have liked in my first season so maybe it is time to ship him on with him at 31 and on 50k a week wages. A tough one. Not too sure who to sign either! Any tips appreciated!
