  1. I am also Arsenal and just paid 160 up front with another 18 in coming clauses, 178 all up. I figure its a game, meant to be fun, so whatever!
  2. Gueundouzi from the Gunners in my save has been challenging Savic for first team minutes thats how good he has been. I assume his PA may be randomised though.
  3. I am playing Arsenal and Guendouzi has been a beast, oh and of course Savic if you have the coin.
  4. As with Boss' suggestion above, the Bundesliga is fun and the teams are all quite talented. Try Leverkusen, Schalke or Hertha as a few out of many who would be a fun long term save in that league.
  5. I have been playing Hertha Belrin in the Bundesliga on my last few long term saves, great league with 5-6 teams who all challenge regularly. Good luck holding onto Heinrichs, Tah and Havertz as in my 2026 save they all turn out brilliant and all got lured to bigger reputation clubs overseas, which continues to be the main challenge playing a bundesliga save. Offer them contracts EVERY time one of the big teams shows interest, even if you only gave them a new contract less than a year ago, its the only way i managed to hold onto my young talent Ive won 5 titles and finally wont eh CL last season, good luck with Leverkusen they are a fun team and one if have been looking at
  6. Whats the most effective way to stop your FBs chasing wingers who cut in from the wing into mid pitch and exposing your flank? Even on low closing down settings they seem to chase after guys like a dog after a tennis ball, anyone found anyway to at least minimise this behaviour?
  7. CB - Jordan Torunarigha from Hertha Berlin is a stud and relatively unknown. I play Hertha and even though i have bought numerous upgrades he still plays and plays well. Not sure what he would cost to pry away from them but he is worth a shot.
  8. Wonderkid Alli Diallo has been rock solid for me, and I play Ezequiel Barco at CM/RPM and he is awesome there with his speed and dribbling
  9. Benteke and Davie Selke (Hertha) have both been great for me
  10. Just restarted my season with Hertha Berlin after struggling with my 4-1-2-3 and found this thread. Really should have looked at your posts earlier Cleon as I generally steal an idea or 2 off you every couple of years Going to try this formation with the same roles, we have lots of winger types at Hertha so should be ok there, just need to find myself a good Segundo on the transfer market. As always thanks for sharing your wisdom you always help slow me down from the click click click style of game i always start out with and then your posts make me think, analyse and slow down - which generally leads to greater success.
  11. FM15 regardless of ME cringe moments has rekindled my fire, 13 and 14 i barely played, couldnt stand them, but suddenly in 15 I am 5 seasons into a save with Hertha Berlin and loving it. Key for me is playing different leagues. I am a Gunners fan but I rarely use them. In the last 5 or so years/releases I have played AC Milan, Fiorentina, Real Socieadad, Crystal Palace, Wolves, Liverpool and now Hertha. I think in FM16 it will be time to take a mid table French team to the top
  12. I am playing as Herha in Germany and am using the following guys who have been solid; John Brooks Nicklas Sule Joe Gomez Chris Smalling Wimmer
  13. Bosnian\Irish Not sure why I thought that... He is a great player regardless.
  14. In order of awesomeness for my saves; Malcom - this guy becomes worldclass Balanta - obvious Depay - monster at LW/AML or STC Tielemans Lucas Silva - great BWM and goal scoring mid Dybala Muhamed Besic - Irish BWM I bought in my last save and he was a rock, alternate to the usuals.
  15. I played 1/2 a season with this as mentioned above and wont he CL final, I have now played a full season and the table below speaks for itself. Won the PL, FA cup and CL final again. 32-3-3 with 137 goals for and only 32 against.
