  1. I am currently doing a save with Newcastle where I can only sign homegrown players and must have a full homegrown squad by the start of season 3. Homegrown players tend to come at a premium so can anyone recommend any bargain gems?
  2. Been a while since I have updated. I have been busy so haven't been able to play as much as I would have liked. The deadline has just closed, a week before season two. Here is my business. I have been busy - I just hope players are able to settle. So I will be going in the Premiership season looking like this:
  3. Haha - My defeats came against the bottom sides bizzarly! Best of luck!
  4. So I opted to try and get rid of one of Kodjia or Hogan - Neither had much interest on the permanent route so I allowed Hogan to join Sunderland on a loan deal with them covering all of his £35k wages. Other notable transfers in January: And the departures: At the end of the season, I won the title, quite comfortably in the end. Below is the league table and the player stats: Now the hard work begins..
  5. Well done! Every save I see posted Villa struggle. So strange or not seeing as who the manager is.
  6. ASTON VILLA MID-SEASON UPDATE It has been a decent first half of the season. Sitting top of the table despite a few frustrating defeats. The Squad I have a week left until the January window is over and I am unsure if I should try and bring a few more faces in just in case of injuries. In an ideal world, I would bring in another striker and offload one of Kodjia or Hogan. Opinions? Transfers
  7. Nope. My unbeaten run is up :(. I am still top of the league 13 games in. W10, D1, L2. A point clear of Wolves in 2nd and 8 clear of Reading in third. Hogan returned from injury and then did his ligaments in training so hasn't actually played a game for me yet. My other strikers have done the following: Grabban: P 8 Gls: 3 Ass: 4 Kodjia: P7 Gls: 1 Ass: 3 Davis: P18 Gls: 8 Ass: 2 As you can see Davis is enjoying himself but I dominate a lot of games and I find that my shots to shots on target rate is poor and also shots to goals.
  8. I tried 2-3 times but he wanted 80-90k which I wasn't prepared to pay and then I went back in on deadline day and he agreed a much lower pay. Only a 5% increase if we get promotion also. How is Cutrone for you? May have to look at that option in January if its possible as Grabban keeps picking up injuries, Kodjia just isn't firing. Hogan is close to fitness so will be interesting to see if he can do a job next to Davis.
  9. ASTON VILLA The aim at the start of the season was to free up any deadwood in and around the club as it is well reported Villa have an issue with FFP. Return to the premiership was the aim and anything else would be a failure. PRE-SEASON Pre-season was all about learning my tactics, improving team morale and of course fitness. We won all of our games including an interesting game against Bayer Leverkusen. TRANSFER HISTORY Anyone considered dead wood in the first team were offloaded (I would have liked more to go but beggars can't be choosers). It is vital that we build from the bottom so that includes not hanging onto younger lads who are never going to make the grade. Villa has a history of doing this. I also looked to offload some of the sponges at the club like Micah Richards and Ross McCormack. I was going to keep hold of Andre Green but when the proposition of signing Samir Nasri on a free transfer (46k a week) was possible I decided to let him go on loan until Nasri's ban kick's in later in the year. I couldn't resist bringing in Pirlo who is only on £900 a week. He probably won't play much but his experience should help the squad and younger lads. Who would have thought Villa would have John Terry, Samir Nasri and Andrea Pirlo playing for them eh? RESULTS SO FAR.. No complaints with the start of the season including a pretty good win over Cardiff in their own backyard. The two cup games have seen much-changed sides but the younger lads including Abdo and Hepburn-Muprhy have both stepped up when called upon. Special mention to Kieran Davis also who has 4 goals in 5 games so far.
  10. Thanks. Started with a 4-2-3-1 and just moved to a 4-1-1-3-1 asymmetric away from home.
  11. Some good stories in here. I have been playing with touch most of the season until I started having issues so I have purchased the full version and decided to give it a go with my Villa. Anything but promotion is a failure for me here. I have had a couple of mess around saves with various sides and found it really hard to find a tactic on the full version so I could make a real hash on this. Will give you an update once the transfer window closes.
  12. Is this the worst game for bugs or what? I am yet to play a season in full without FM18 Touch crashing. Since issues with the update, I’ve reinstalled etc. My iPad is updated to the latest software and now I can’t even get past the first day before it crashes. I would more more than happily have my money back. So poor in this day and age from SiGames.
  13. Not 100% clued up haha. It’s not a pro but the latest standard version.
