  1. 3rd season in and Ansu Fati requested to leave Barcelona as they signed a high profile LW. There was only Tottenham insterested and after scouting said he would be available for 9-16mill. Immediately offered 16mill and offered him everything he wanted 90k wages lots of bonuses and sign ons etc. (Had to include buy out clause of £105 mill for clubs in champions cup) This kid is something else. Hopefully he progresses as his potential shows.
  2. Just started out with Leeds United and seems to be going pretty well. Dropped the 2nd striker back to a CAM similar to @killerkoala, which seems to be more effective. Will report back with my findings when I get to January.
  3. Still working great for me. Started again with Leeds trying to bring through youngsters and had a lot of 17 year olds in the squad and still ran away with the title. Played predominantly 442 but switched to 4141 if I was in a bad patch of form. Worked a treat.
  4. Anyone ever come across anything like this? Gotta mega excited then clicked accept and April Fools
  5. How are you getting on with Scotland? I've seen quite a few decent Scottish regens coming through on my save! Probably only seen 5 good English ones though and then trying to buy them is a nightmare. Doing really well and started winning things around a season or two ago. The board decided to extend the stadium and now the finances are looking a bit poor so thats my next task to sort those out.
  6. Hes currently scored 17 in 19 appearances this year. Germany have some unreal regens in my save. Here is a few more currently in my squad:
  7. Had to pay him quite a hefty wage to keep him at the club. But hes class, well worth it.
  8. Best tactics I've used on any version of Football Manager! Used the 4141 in the Championship with Leeds and won the title the first year. Then finished 4th in my first season back in the premiership. The 442 was released and I switched to this due to the number of wonderkid strikers I had managed to purchase, haven't looked back since. Now in my 6th season and winning pretty much every competition entered. Thank you for sharing these tactics!!
  9. Still having massive success with this tactic. Season 3 with my Leeds team resulted in a Premiership title, Carabao Cup win & Euro Cup win (After going out of the Champions cup in the group stage). Was knocked out of the FA cup in the Semi-finals aswell so nearly success in every competition entered. Season 4 currently in December. sat top of the Premier League once again battling it out with a very good Liverpool squad. Made it out of the Group stages of the Champions cup this time so lets see how far I can go with that one. And into the quarter finals of the Caraba
  10. I switched to it after the post and must say it’s been brilliant! Only played around 5 games but the number of goals from midfield is crazy. Mateusz Klich has gone from scoring 4 in 20 to 12 in 25. 8 goals in 5 games since the new tactic!! For the 2 results of note I beat Hull City 6-0 and beat Aston Villa 5-1 (Aston Villa sat in 2nd and going well so an amazing result). The remaining fixtures were 3-0 and 2 x 2-0. This tactic really doesn’t concede goals. Highly recommend.
  11. V1 been working like a dream so far in my Leeds save: Will try V2 now but not sure the results can get better
  12. I think Jack Clarke could be immense with the right game time this year. Doing well for you already! Great achievement. I did exactly this. Was doing well in my second season but had sold a lot of the original first team and not developed any of the youngsters. Made it my aim to develop Shackleton, Pearce, Clarke, Edmundson & Temenuzhkov (Just to start with). All transfers will be under 21 or English if over that.
  13. January Update - Season 1 So after a far few restarts and purchasing many different players I finally settled on a plan that I wanted to work with. Offloaded the usual suspects at the start of the season plus Samu Saiz on loan as he wouldn't get the game time in my formation and terminated all the loans apart from Jamal Blackman and Jack Harrison (both of which are really good players for the championship level). In January had interest in probably 10 of the squad but only received offers on 6 players. Luke Ayling - Sold to West Brom for £11m in total, Adam Forshaw - Sold to Stoke fo
  14. I've just got to January in my first season and sold Ayling to West Brom for £12 mill (9 mill upfront, 2 mill in installments over 24 months and 1 mill after 50 appearances). Going to be implementing Lewie Coyle into the team for the 2nd half of the season, hoping to get similar offers as @soldierblue123!!
