  2. Won La Liga and the Copa del Rey. Did a great job also in the Europa League! Thank you for the tactic. I know it's not as effective as Goodbye 3-4-3-0 but for the Athletic players it suits better.
  3. We've done it!!! The Double!!! We have won La Liga and the Copa del Rey!!! An amazing season with a thrilling end. We won also the Copa del Rey after beating Real Madrid and Barcelona in 1/8 and 1/4. An incredible comeback against Real at home and an unbelievable performance at Barcelona after a 1-1 tie at home. We left the Europa League undefeated in quarter finals against Tottenham after losing by away goals. They went to win the title against Manchester United. The players did an amazing performance, specially at the attack. I used Knap's RAW Sienna 4231. At the transfer market I bought Isma Lopez for the first team and 4 hot prospects from Zaragoza and Espanyol. The most hard thing to do was to keep our players from the big teams offers. Have to promise them that we will qualify for the next Champions League and I think I kept my word. But is going to be hard again now that a couple of them want to play with better players and I won't be able to buy any big name next season. The bad news is that Aduriz and Iraizoz (specially Aduriz) are retiring. Iraizoz did a good season, sharing time with Kepa but was not going to have minutes the next season as Remiro seems to be ready for first team action. Aduriz is god, Villalibre was really amazing when he had to replace him, but I didn't want to lose him, at least for some Champions League action.
  4. Thanks! Gonna give it a try in my SAF Challenge.
  5. Nevertheless I'm happy with the results.
  6. I think it's part of the "game". Is not 100% real, may be with top players the % of scored chances rise.
  7. So far my results with Athletic using this version. 5 official matches played, 5 won (including Real Madrid). The team is performing really creating a lot of shots but not scoring all of them. I leave the stats, standings and the formation. Results & Standings The squad stats & the formation. De Marcos is injured but he's the starting DR. Kepa & Gorka will play 50/50 of the games. Complete team stats.
  8. After a winning streak at preseason is time to play for the real points! Let's see how the team performs.
  9. Sorry, didn't understand you. Yes he's real. http://www.inter.it/it/settore_giovanile/under-17-serie-a-e-b Moises Eboko Cordoba. Looks like he's from Valencia, may be as a 16yo you can buy him and he will gain the basque nationality.
  10. Regen are usually young players created by the game season after season. Don't know if they substitute retired players, I think it depends on each country strength.
  11. I started a career with Athletic. I'm going to keep you updated. Bought Isma López as a backup for Balenziaga, Saborit is not good enough and Lekue and Bóveda are better DRs than DLs. Also brought some U17 from Zaragoza to strong the youth team. I'm going to use the 4231 but as soon as we reach max knowledge I would like to try a 343.
  12. Thank you for this tactic and the rest! I've started using your tactics in a couple of savegames, one my SAF challenge where the team to choose was Boro. After struggling the first season to finish at the 17th position, and media prediction giving us the 19th spot, we struggled at the start until I started using your tactics. First I used the one you made for Liverpool but after a couple of matches I moved to the one you tested with MU. In the schedule you can see that after we lost to West Ham I decided using the 451 tested with Liverpool. We beat Bournemouth but were really unlucky in the game against Everton. Then i switched to the MU tactic and although we lost against the 2 Manchester teams we performed really well. The only match we didn't play well was against Tottenham at home. Then the rest of the games we were dominant. I've used the GOODBYE 3421 against Chelsea because i needed a more solid team. Against Arsenal I was confident that the team has strength its power and played with the 451. Against Swansea I used the 4231 and won 5-2. Let's see how the season ends! Media prediction: 19th The tactic with the team. Radoja was on loan at PSG for the first half of the season trying to win his work permit. Good results started to come after a few matches but is awesome! We can forget about promotion and start thinking about Europe? The SAF challenge looks much better now for me!
  13. FM doesn't simulate Athletic's philosophy 100%. Athletic can sign, basque born players and non basque players developed in the Basque Country. Athletic have african and south american players in the youth system and they are not basque or basque related, just people who migrated to the Basque Country. Also there are spanish or french players (Valverde, Ezquerro, Laporte) who are not from the Basque Country but have developed as players in a basque team. What FM does is allow you to sign only spanish players before they turn 17. So my advice is try to sign the best 15/16 yo players and good luck with their development. As soon as they turn 17 in your youth squads, they will gain the basque nationality.
  14. Thank you Ben, I took holiday for 1 day and the offer was cancelled automatically.
