  1. So, I've just bought FM21. I'm looking for a special club. That small club with state of the art youth facilities, or that third division club with a superb U21 prospect. Something like that. I've thought of Altinordu, Palermo, or HSV, but I am really looking for recommendations. I'm open to most European leagues and divisions.
  2. It sounds like a really interesting league. I remember all the hype around Fredy Adu back in the day. But players like him don't come through the draft these days, then? I see a bunch of youngsters in my academy, but I can't get an evaluation on their potential. Are those my Generation Adidas players?
  3. So MLS clubs still get youth intakes like other clubs?
  4. I'm seeking suggestions to either a Eastern European club with some nice youth prospects and perhaps some history, or an MLS club. I haven't tried the MLS before on FM. Is the draft at all manageable if you haven't tried it before?
  5. So, after literally days of contemplation, I've decided to accept the job offer from Lazio. I simply felt that Juventus would be too easy, and at the same time a bit empty without any of the current senators in the squad. On the other hand, Lazio would give me an exciting 20 year-old Italian in Daniele Cianci. Besides, Lazio still only have their two Scudetti, and I would rather like to build on that - just like I did with Reggina, whom I simply felt I could take no further after two consecutive Scudetti. Furthermore, who could say no to a squad as talented as this? Cianci and the squad
  6. Thanks. I will have to give it a more organised go, I figure.
  7. Are you guys having any succes with mentoring? I am really having a hard time with it, and it seems to me there is no reason in regards to who gets what traits as senior players are just as likely to pick up stuff from youngsters as the other way around. I am however hardly ever seeing any development in young players' personality, even if I put youngsters with no influence in the team along highly influential players.
  8. Recapturing the title I have once again captured the Scudetto, and even though it looks like quite a comfortable lead, Inter wasn't out of the running until after the 38th matchday, as they stumbled against Udinese as I beat Cagliari. Obviously very satisfying, even more so as Dany Mota - now mostly a part-time player - scored the winning goal in a 1-0 victory for my Amaranto side. A fitting end to his - and perhaps my - career at the Oreste Granillo. Champions League and Coppa Italia failure I was knocked out in the 1st knockout round in the Champions League and in the semifi
  9. Me too. But I do like the idea of having a DoF "above" me. Especially in Italy where is seems DoFs grow on trees. I am disappointed in his signings, though.
  10. Have any of you had succes with your DoF buying players (either for the first team, or the U squads) for you? Massimo Taibi buys some (quite expensive) players for my U squads, but they never had a really good star rating at all. But the AI teams are always buying some really exciting players. Juventus especially, it seems.
  11. Yes, he's been really good. I've used him as my advanced forward in a two-striker partnership with a DLF. He is however on the bench now, and it seems like his goals are being shared amongst several players, as no one has really been able to take over his role. Still, a very nice run for a free striker from Luxembourg
  12. I've signed him as an U18 GK coach, but he isn't really improving beyond being really bad on my save. Did you do anything to further his development?
  13. I got him for free at the end of the 20/21 season, and I was really in doubt whether to sign him, as I had Fernando Foristieri on a high wage. But he was an outright disaster, and luckily I stuck to my guns and signed Mota.
  14. @Sysiphus Dany Mota has been really prolific for me. In two years in Serie A, he's scored 37 league goals (41 total) - a lot of them really great ones. He has a wicked long shot, and he's been a good free-kick taker for me, even though he didn't have the best attributes for it. He never could get a call-up for Portugal, so he is a Luxembourger now on my save
  15. I've just finished my most memorable FM 20 season to date, having won the Serie A in front of Lazio, Inter, and Juventus. With four games to go, I was in second place, but Juventus slipped against Parma, and eventually crashed all the way to fourth place. Quite extraordinary, and obviously very nice for the people of Reggio Calabria to stick it to all the northerners. League table / Team of the year As I expected, Fausto Vera is starting to draw serious interest from bigger clubs, and Benfica have bid €44M, which I have rejected after some consideration. I just can't get a deep-lyi
