  1. Also when it comes to youth players, anyone with 3 star+ potential will have a personalised training plan with reminders every 3 months
  2. Real life stopped me from playing the game, but I've finally loaded up a save following the winter update, Firmino and Salah look amazing with their stats boosted, whilst the other changes mostly seem to be to the youth players. I've decided to go with three different variations on the 4-2-3-1 after spending a lot of my other saves trying to get a 4-3-3 working with varying levels of success. I'll post them below along with the 5 youth prospects I'm going to be trying to build the future around, unless the youth intake gives me something amazing, Also when it comes to buying players, unless someone is a massive upgrade on what I have, I'll be looking to use the youth players to bolster the squad.
  3. Huh so the update came out, playing with no couthino will be interesting
  4. I've had lots of trouble with motivation for playing this, I'm starting over one last time and seeing how it goes
  5. I've swapped my 4-3-3 back to a slightly tweaked 4-2-3-1 that I used in my first season. I'll post it soon
  6. So my plan for the coming season is to have two players for each position, and then youth players to boost the squad up, so based on that below will be my tactics for the coming season, main 11 and second 11. I've put my transfers up as well, Milner rejected the contract from Nates which is why I had him on the January window in my first save and then again below
  7. Finally getting around to start my second season of my liverpool save, I'll post at the end of the transfer window which is just before the season starts with transfers and my formation.
  8. Can we just look at this sponorship deal, 6 years £300m
  9. So end of my first season, and from my mid season review it should go without saying that we won the league in our first season, and as you can see quite easily too in the end. We broke our own total points record and the record for the league too, we also broke the record for the most wins in a league season with 32 as well. That being said we were nowhere near an all conquering team, and we fell short in the three cup competitions, and as you can see in the champions league we were destroyed by Real Madrid. We had them at 1-1 half time in the first leg but just fell apart in the second and conceded another 4 goals which meant we were never turning that around. That being said getting to the semi finals was something that we weren't expected to do, so we have to take that into consideration as well for how well I did this season, seeing as my only real buy was VVD. My top three players were naturally Firmino, Mane and Salah who all came close to 30 goals each in all competitions, and I think they might have if it wasn't for them picking up injuries throughout the season they kept them out 1 -4 months each throughout the season, at one point all three of them were injured at the same time, which wasn't the best thing to happen to me. Sturridge bagged 17 goals in all competitions and only really started to play around the Christmas period so that was something I guess, But senior squad wise no one really stepped up enough for me to be overly pleased with them, Coutinho wasn't that great if I'm honest 7 goals and 11 assists from the AMC position wasn't as good as I thought he'd be for be, so I'm not too sure if there will be a change in formation considering he won't be replacing Mane as my AML inside forward, and I dont really want to have to sell either of them so I'm not too sure what will happen yet. We have Keita coming in, with the transfer already being arranged when the game starts, but I'll be looking at other places to improve my team as well. Woodburn is the second choice for the AML spot, so I'll probably be looking at someone to rotate in the AMR spot whilst nurturing the youth players and seeing what happens there. When it comes to youth players, Gomez and Woodburn were the stand out ones for me this season, and they're posted below. Looking at Gomez especially he's going to be VVD's partner in the coming season, his 7.30 rating is only bettered by VVD's 7.36 when it comes to my defence.
  10. He's got the same finishing on my save, I've left him in the under 18's for my first season. Just had my Regen take, here's the top 3 players to come in
  11. January transfer window has ended and then was some movement involved; Danny Ings went to Man City for £14m up front and an extra £7m over the next two years James Milner went on loan to Nates, who are paying us £240k a week for the loan with a mandatory £15m future fee Harry Wilson went out on loan to Ipswich Ragnar Klavan £10m Quanjian We brought a couple of players in too Ante Coric for £10.75m Ryan Sessegon £12m who will be re-trained for my left wingback role
  12. Mid Season Review: So I'm at January in my first season and things couldn't be going better, for me so far. My 4-2-3-1 has been dominating the league so far, 19 wins from 21 games and 0 losses wasn't something that I was expecting at the start, especially when the game keeps telling me that due to me not using anyone in the DM slot it would leave me weak in that area of the pitch. 7 Goals conceded so far tells a different story, especially considering Liverpool don't have an amazing keeper at the start of the season, so consider me shocked when this has been happening with Karius, 15 clean sheets already is mental, how its happened I'm not too sure, and I dont know if I'll bother trying to get a new keeper in the summer if he keeps this up. The CL gave me a group of death, and again the results are telling a different story on that side. For the CL matches I swapped my attacking to standard or control to get me through the games. I didn't expect to win and top the group, and honestly I wouldn't have been surprised if we had finished third in it, it would have been disappointing but not too unexpected. PSG in the first knock out round was probably one of the better draws we could have got, but there were still weaker teams that I would have preferred to get to make sure we got to the quarter finals which is what our aim for the season. Firmino, Mane and Salah have been amazing, I posted earlier about them having 10 goals each in November so there's their stats at the end of December. They have carried me through the season so far, and I think it's going to be hard to keep them next season if someone like Barcelona come in for one of them. Mane has asked for a new contract which I've told him will be discussed once the season is over. I'm thinking around £150k which is what Coutinho is on, and what I gave Firmino at the start of December. If we take a look at goals scored besides the three of them it isn't that great, but I can't be too shocked by that, they pretty much play every match for me.
  13. I'm at the start of November in my first season, and Firmino, Mane and Salah have 10 goals each in all comps if they don't end on 25+ each it'll seem underwhelming from right now
  14. So following pre-season I've gone with a 4-2-3-1, I played with it for a few months in a test save over the past week or so and things worked out well with if, after changing somethings. The main thing is to get the best out of Firmino, Coutinho, Mane and Salah which it seems to be, and I rotate Salah and Mane between AML and AMR. Loading the save up and four players and 4.5 star potential; Grujic will be my long term replacement for Can. Gomez will rotate this season as RB and CB, but next season I want him to be VVD's CB partner (hint I've bought VVD) Woodburn will be used as a rotation option this year as AML/Inside forward, but looking at him I could also train him to become Coutinho's long term replacement as my AMC in this formation TAA will rotate with Gomez as Rb this season, but it's clear he'll be my main RB next year if everything goes the way I want it to. Transfers: VVD - £30m up front and £30 over the next three years Ruben Blanco Flangan - £7.5m to Stoke. He's just not good enough and he'll never be used for me Markovic - £15m to Leicester there might be a player there in the FM database but he wont be replacing anyone in my team and £15m is too good to turn down Bogdan £4.5m Zenit see Flanagan Mignolet £17.5m to Zenit. I've never rated the man IRL and in the game his stats aren't good enough to be playing for Liverpool.
