  1. So it's not going great. Pavon just ended his 13 hour goalless streak and Charlie Austin is on a 20 hour goalless streak.. My last 3 away games have ended up 0-5 v Tottenham 0-3 v Southampton 2-4 v Man City W4 D2 L8 -14 Goal Difference Seemed okay up until these games, they really rattled me, got a crap 1-1 draw against leeds as well. Not to concerned about the amount of goals conceded as its partly down to me staying very agressive when I should probably sit back and shut up shop. (Went ahead twice against City) We get slaughtered from crosses It tends to be one defender who gets a m
  2. Thanks for the reply. For chances created Id like similar to Barca. How they play the extra pass across the runner before playing it through to him. Or lovely team goals like Wilshere vs. Norwich a couple of years ago. I am definitely happy to keep possession rather than waste it my trying to move up the field to quickly. However I dont believe my squad are strong enough mentally to play a strong possession game. 1. Good point, I guess I will remove the be more expressive TI. 2. As I say, I favour False 9 type forwards, but Charlie Austin is my current main striker and im hoping his physic
  3. Because I am building towards an ideal, this post will cover some non tactical aspects but I will try to keep them brief. I am really struggling on this years game. Regardless of who I have been managing my results and statistics within games have been massively unstable and it has make it really hard for me to understand where my problems lie. Currently I am managing Aston Villa who I finished with in 17th place. The Idea I want to play attractive football. I like seeing teams absolutely split open with incisive, fast football. I don't have the talent in my squad to play like Pep's Guardi
  4. Looking at him at the start of the second. They only want 14m for him and his contracts running down! Hopefully half a good first half of the season and he might be interested in a switch lol!
  5. In January for 2.1m to Watford, likewise Ayew, yet only got 1.5m for him. Really not a fan of Gestede so I gave him sod all first team action whilst he was at the club.
  6. Spent season 1 getting constantly turned over. Not sure why. I even cheated once and made all the players morale Superb. Finding this years game really tough. Anyway no more cheats. I survived on the last day of the season, on goal difference. Here are my transfers for the first season. 2015/2016 IN Charlie Austin - 10m Andrija Zivkovic - 2m Thiago Maia - 8m Gino Peruzzi - 3m Cristian Pavon 3.4m Juan Cazares - 1m (Cant get permit) Emerson - 4.5m (No permit) Balanta - 3m Bolstered by Kouyate, Andreas Pereira, Cahill and Lacina Traore on loan in January. OUTS Ayew, Gestede, N'Zog,
  7. Lost the Community Shield to Chelsea Won only one of my first 5 games in the league, drawing 2, losing 2. Lost against Schalke in the first Group game. Reckon I will get the sack soon. I do however have 64.80% average possession in the league..
  8. Guy has been a beast for me but is no one frustrated with the amount of long shots he blasts into row Z? Way to many from the left wing, so I decided to play him upfront, nearer to the goal. Still pings so many into the fans though from the edge of the box
  9. Pretty sure Balanta is horrible in big games, hidden attribute.
  10. So I lose the season on the last day to United by losing to West Brom, not happy. I was top until I crashed out of the CL. Anyone got any suggestions on how to play Depay and Sanchez together? Ive been using Sanchez mainly upfront because I have had Depay on the wing. Depay has been awesome but I feel Sanchez would absolutely destroy on the wing given the chance. Perhaps I could switch them around and have depay up front, he has the strength on his side.
  11. I am actually playing him as a Regista. I like the aggressiveness of the role & how he is a threat from outside the area. In 11(2) appearances his stats are as follows. - 4 Goals - 2 Penalties (2) - 1 Assist - 1 POM - 87% Passing - 9.23 Tackles per Game - 7.36 Average Rating Going into the second season he is becoming even better. All round improvements. I have my defence push up higher to compensate for the gap. Just got POM in a 7-1 mauling of Spurs.
  12. Season 1 - Complete CompetitionsPremier League: 3rd Champions League: Semi Finals FA Cup: Third Round League Cup: Third Round Finished 3rd in the league on 80 points (+51 GD) behind a storming Chelsea (99 points) and United. Went 3-0 up at home against Barcelona in the CL Semi Final only to be humiliated 7-1 in the second leg. Happy with our league performance, especially the defence considering its the weakest part of the team. I had great success playing a 4-2-3-1 all season, with one of the CM's pushed back to CDM. Coutinho and Sterling made the most assists in the league,
