  1. Bought Demba Ba for 7m in summer. He wasn't fitting in with my tactics, so I sold him for 15m in January.
  2. I would like to do an Arsenal save as my last game. I want to use the 12.2 patch, as I like saving all the new transfers for the next FM. With that being said, I'm assuming the most popular formation would be a 4-2-3-1? If so, what role should I give RVP (will sell after 1st season)? Are there any particular players I should go for, other than Vrsaljko? I'm not an Arsenal fan, so I appreciate any help in advance.
  3. Evening, lads. I'm about to start my first Chelsea save ever in FM, and have a couple questions. First, what seems to be the best formation to use in the first season, assuming I don't sell or buy anyone? Second, what position/role gets the best out of Mata? Thanks in advance.
  4. Bored with my Man City save, so started one with Liverpool. Didn't bring anyone in, as I want to do the best I can with the current squad until January. Won the first match against Swansea, but lost Suarez for 3-4 months with a torn calf. Now I'm going to have to figure out some way to get Carroll or Bellamy to score upfront.
  5. I'd like to manage a team that can get a new stadium within the first 5 years of the game. So which EPL teams have you seen get new stadiums early on?
  6. Haha, I stand corrected
  7. Best thread ever.
  8. With a week left until the transfer window slams shut, I think I'm pretty happy with my squad. I wanted to improve my strikers, and I think I did with Grameiro. Hargreaves provides cover for RB and CM. De Jong will alternate with Sandro as Modric's partner. Phil Jones is Gallas' replacement, and Varane is one for the future. Shelvey is one for the future, for what I thought was a decent price. Joseba is a 15 year old regen, who my scouts gave a 4-star potential. My preferred lineup for the season looks like this: GK- Gomes LB- Assou-Ekotto CB- King CB- Dawson RB- Walker CM- Sandro CM- Modric AML- Hazard AMC- Van der Vaart AMR- Sanchez/Lennon ST- Defoe The squad screenshot doesn't show Grameiro and Wickham, who round up my strikeforce.
  9. Finished my first season, to mixed success. Bale's transfer really threw my plans into chaos. I ended up bringing in Hazard to replace him, only for him to break his foot after 4 games and miss the rest of the season. Alexis Sanchez started strong, and I'm hoping for big things from him next season. I ended up with 82 pts, good enough for 3rd place. Chelsea won the league. I got knocked out of the Champions League by Barca in the quarter finals, 5-0 on aggregate. Didn't help that I had a defender sent off in both legs. I lost to Man City in the FA Cup semi-final, 1-0. I did win the league cup, beating Chelsea in the final 4-2 in extra-time. Van der Vaart won Players' Player of the Year. Defoe was the Fan's Player of the Year. Aaron Lennon came in 3rd in Young Player of the Year. I plan on doing a pretty decent clearout this summer, to get rid of the excess. In addition, I want to revamp the RB spot, bring in another DC to replace Gallas, and bring in another striker. I'm hoping to sign Hargreaves to play MC and RB, and have Walker be my first choice RB. Other than that, I don't want to make any huge signings, as I'd like to keep the balance high to hopefully get a new stadium within the next couple of years. I'll post another update when I have my summer's transfers completed. COYS!
  10. I set his asking price at 50m to match his minimum release clause, but it unfortunately didn't help. However, Bale has now torn his calf muscle and is out for 4 months. Serves him right.
  11. Disaster! Man United came in with a 37m pound bid for Bale in January, and Levy accepted over my head. I'm not a believer in quitting and reloading the save, so there was nothing I could do. He only recently signed a new contract, so I couldn't even offer a new one to try to tempt him to stay. Oh well. I used the money to sign Alexis Sanchez (17m) and Eden Hazard (16.5m) to replace him.
  12. Just reached January in season one, and I'm happy with how it's been going. I'm in 2nd place, but Man Utd are not dropping points, and currently are 4 pts ahead. I won my champions league group, and will be facing FC Kobenhavn in the next round. I'm in the league cup semi-final against Sheff Utd, and the FA Cup 3rd round against Brighton. Bale and Defoe have been my standout performers so far. I just had to give Bale a new contract, as his agent demanded it following a bid from Man Utd. Hopefully I won't regret the 50m pound minimum release fee I had to put in there. I have pretty much left the team the way it is, in terms of transfers. Palacios went out for 8m in August, and I brought in Alex Chamberlain, Connor Wickham, and Jack Robinson for the future. This is my first Spurs save where I haven't sold Jenas right away, and he's actually been performing well. I will post a large update with screenshots at the end of the season.
  13. Playing as Spurs, and have had offers accepted for Macheda and Welbeck. I can't afford both players, so which do you think would be the better investment? The prices are similar.
  14. Just reached January in my 1st season. Having a great season so far, though Manchester United are as well. We will almost certainly finish as the top two teams, but the order is up for grabs. The prize for winning my group in the CL was to be drawn against Real Madrid in the next round, so I'm not really looking forward to that. I got knocked out by Spurs in the 3rd round of the league cup, but that wasn't a priority for me, so I wasn't really bothered. As for transfers, I brought in De Gea to be goalkeeper, and he's done a fantastic job. Jack Butland has also come in to be a future backup, and is on loan at Brentford for the season. I sold Almunia to make room for De Gea. I may look for another striker in January, but I may wait until the summer.
