  1. Never managed Palermo but I have Ruggiero & D'Amico in my Villa side that have just finished 2nd in the Prem & got to Europa League final. Ruggiero's fantastic but D'Amico is out of this world, in the past 2 seasons he's scored around 60 goals and got over 60 assists, mainly playing as an attacking right winger. Good luck keeping hold of them though.
  2. I'm finding that a IF on one side and a winger on the other is very effective. Also, using attack duty rather than support should increase their contribution but beware of attacking full backs not being tracked, especially against bigger teams.
  3. I usually have a few on the go at a time but I get engrossed into one at a time, so i'll play one continuously for a while then may lose interest a bit and switch to another for a while but I couldn't like play one save one day and another the next and keep rotating.
  4. Thanks for the comments, I have sorted my squad out and am 10 games into the season and going well, currently 4th on 21 points so very pleased with that! Just so you know what signings I made: DL - Managed to sign Josh Tymon on a permanent deal, cost £22.5m but well worth it. DR - Got in an 18 year old Serbian regen who isn't quite Prem standard yet but not far off and huge potential, great backup for Bree. MC - After UK left the EU I was able to sign Grujic who had left Liverpool at the end of his contract. SC - Got Romero in on loan and he's a beat, also signed Mayoral as
  5. I've struggled for a while with wingers but the 433 wide i'm using with Villa is working a treat so far, kept us up in our first season and we got the League Cup Final. 9 games in to the next season we;ve got 20 points already and have beaten Arsenal in the league and in the cup and also beaten Spurs in the cup. D'Amico is ridiculously good, he's got 13 assists and 4 goals in 11 starts. I'm using him on the right and Andre Green on the left as an inside forward with either Romero or Mayoral up top and we are deadly. I've found that by having a well balanced and fairly defensive midfield t
  6. I have to agree with @Welshace re. Keinan Davis, he was very average and even with regular football in the Championship he never progressed so I let him go. @Wyer I'm guessing you've moved on Andre Green as you're not using wingers? He's been sensational for me. Update I've progressed a bit with the save last night and have managed to secure the signing of Grujic on a free now that the UK has left the EU, I've also managed to sign Tymon from Stoke as they got relegated but he cost me £22.5m. Up top i've got Maxi Romero in on loan and he looks perfect, looking to sign a hot
  7. In the topic you ask for help to improve the tactic and then when people give their opinions about it you shoot them down and tell them how amazing it performs. I'm really confused. On the face of it the tactic looks unbalanced and very open. How you don't get destroyed down the flanks, especially against a team like Real Madrid who will usually have attacking wing backs overlapping inside forwards, is baffling. Having said that, both teams will effectively just be fighting fire with fire.
  8. It would be really useful in journeyman type saves if you could fund your own coaching course so you aren't always relying on a financially sound club to progress your coaching ability, this would also bring some meaning to earning a wage. For example, 10% of your weekly wage could build up in a separate pot then if you have enough funds in there and your club refuse to send you on a course you could get the option to self fund the course from your earnings. The study time should also increase if you self fund the course as you would have to do it in your own time.
  9. The most recent ridiculous situation from my FM18 dynamics experience... Andre Green approaches me and demands a new contract, I tell him that's fair enough he has earned it and I will offer him one. I try to offer him a deal but he says he will not talk about a contract until we have mathematically secured our Premier League survival, he comes back days later and cries because I haven't given him a new deal and then the entire squad turn against me because of it... The dynamics feature is potentially brilliant but please fix the damn thing! That scenario almost undone 3 years of har
  10. Hi Guys, So I am at the end of season 3 with Aston Villa, I won the Championship in season 2 and have just finished 13th in the Prem and runners up in the League Cup, however I'm losing a lot of talent that had been on loan with Josh Tymon, Moise Kean, Andrea Pinamonti & Marko Grujic all leaving, I can't sign any of them on loan or permanent which as you will see has left us very light on quality. I've got £46m available for transfers and around £450k to spare in the wage budget so a decent amount to work with. I generally play a 433 wide, well organised and deadly on the break, or at
  11. My 2 bigger saves on FM18 have been with Hertha Berlin & Aston Villa, here are my favourite players so far... Andre Green - Right or Left wing, absolutely destroyed the Championship (2nd season) and is impressing in the Prem too at such a young age. Assists & Goals for fun with this guy. Andrea Pinamonti - Still young but he is absolutely deadly, do feel he is better in a 2 up top formation though, struggles on his own. Josh Tymon - Another youngster, left back, had him on loan in our Championship winning season and first season in the Prem, so good already and al
