  1. omg, Haalands goal return...........that is simply outstanding!! Mbappe is pretty good too. I spent ages trying to get my striker scoring but finally managed to get Haaland and Harry Kane (bought him for 80m as he requested a transfer at spurs) scoring regulary. Anyone had any issues with Fabinho? Madrid made a low bid and unsettled him and he put in a request to leave. I was not worried at first, but try as I might I could not resolve this and after 2 years of trying I eventually sold him, not to RM but to Chelsea of all clubs as they offered me 100m all up front so I took it. Shame a
  2. ok, I use a couple depending on player and opponent - here are my most used:
  3. For all of you who are managing to get your strikers to score, how are you doing it? im happy with the overall performance and goals but none of them are coming from my striker. I have Kane and Haaland rotating as the lone striker, I’ve tried them in every role but just can’t get them to score?? im reluctant to change my tactic as overall it’s performing very well just not my strikers!! any thoughts?
  4. So I won everything except UCL in my 1st season. in comes milinkovic-Savic for 83m tonali for 15.5 out goes a heap of deadwood from the reserved also out wjanaldum and Shaqiri for a combined 120m happy with the squad, then Harry Kane gets listed for 87m! Do I try to sign him and move bobby to another role or do I leave him due to his injury proneness?
  5. Exactly..... I personally would never sell Salah or Mane for that matter as finding someone better on the game will be nigh on impossible. I would only sell them if they wanted to go and started causing issues at the club. Of course that is just the way I work and the way I play the game......Others I guess will be very different in their approach. All about personal preference and enjoyment......
  6. What I do in these situations, is ask myself, ok 153m is a lot of money, BUT can I really upgrade on the player I'm selling? My philosophy is that if I'm selling a player (unless he is surplus) I need to be able to replace him with soemone better G
  7. Thought I’d start over. New game 3 weeks in we seem to be in the process of a board takeover which doesn’t seem overly realistic!
  8. I just sold Shaquiri to a chinese club at the end of my 1st season for 57m. He has not been a bad player for me, but I have good youth prospects in his position coming through and whilst he was good, I still thought 57m was a good deal!! I hope I don't regret selling him......
  9. I like the idea of Ox at RB may also try that too. I managed to get Alex Telles as back up for Robbo - was listed and got him for about 12m I think - will be joining in Jan. Also Eriksen was listed at spurs and he is also joining in Jan for a bargain 40m I thought. Good think with these 2 is neither wanted huge wages and both happy with squad status ( telles is on 20k and eriksen is on 90k). Currently in negotiations with Haaland.....
  10. I made them my top target (1 at a time) Dybale one season then Kane the next. I then basically scouted them continously, attended some games myself and asked Henderson to sell the club to him, or words to that effect....It took about a season if doing that before they were both really interested and asked to leave (I had also wond the title and champions leage the same season so that may have also helped)
  11. Both Kane and Dybala are great for me at Liverpool. Sometimes you can work hard at unsettling them both. It took me about a season but I eventually got Dybala for 90m (220k wages) and Kane (who by the way had also just signed a new deal with spurs) for 80m (170k wages). It can be done if you are patient. I also had madrid invoke Firminho clause which is why I bought them. I play Dybala just behind Kane and they both bang in 30+ per season on a regular basis. On another note - I manegd to unsettle Dele Ali and got him for 50m (he is rotated with dybala)
  12. yes - he got a season of game time with me as the OX did his cruciates and Salah was on and off the tratment table. His stats look reasonable but not worldclass, but he performed much better than expected. eneded up player of the year with 17 goals from IF (R) and a few assists. Now worth 50m with top teams chasing him. My problem now is both salah and Ox fully fit and these guys are performing great as well..........If I get a big bid for Ox or Wilson I may consider it.
  13. This can work if the player is interested. I managed to do this with Harry Kane and Dybala (I'm Liverpool) took me about a year of declaring interest and watching them. but eventually I got them for 80m each. If I remember correctly the initial starting price was about 180m for each or similar..... But sometimes the player is just not interested and then there is not much you can do
  14. How do people go with renewing Grujic's contract? I normally sell him, but this time I kept him as Barca were silly enough to give me 70m for Gini. He has been playing great for me at DM. Tried to renew his contract, only wants reasonable wages...great I thought.....then I get the message, work permit declined!! Gutted as he has 3 months on his contract left and I can't give him a new contract.
  15. if the option is there (it isn't always) you could ask to sack agent - but I only think that is an option if the player is unhappy or deanding a new contract. Other than that mate I think you are a bit stuck I'm afraid. The other option I guess is if other palyers are with that agent you could offer then nice new contracts (if you can) and build a relationship. I had similar with a player I was trying to sign just wouldn't negotiate - I did get around it by appeasing his other players...
