  1. FM18: Hidden Gems

    Never even scouted him in FM before, but in my Sttutgart save, this guys is probably my best player. Just amazing.
  2. FM18: Serie A - The home of Calcio

    As for contracts, I always try to go as low as possible with wages and add bonuses. Goals, team of the year, top goalscorer, international cap, winning the CL and so on.

    I actually got Kohr from Leverkusen mid-way first season, he got transfer listed. 5mil€ only. And he outperformed Ascacibar, similar players. zlatanera, Mandragora maybe? Cristante? Grassi, Gnoukouri, Viviani... etc. Assuming you're looking for a backup, those are all relatively cheap, home-grown options. But since you just said you went over 50 midfielders, I assume you checked all of them out. Most best buy players come from relegated teams in top5 leagues.

    Idk, maybe he works out for you, which formation are you using? He's only 20, so should improve his mental traits. His attributes are fine, it's just that he got too many cards for me and I couldn't really slot him into 3 man midfield with DM and 2CM. As I said, too short for DM and I prefer someone that can do some basic distribution and his offensive contribution in CM role was lacking. I think he'd do better in a 3man with AM, DLP-BWM combo. Or 2DM combo.
  5. Need a Save badly

    Most Bundesliga clubs are a great challenge. I just completed my first Stuttgart season, finished 4th due to crazy parity. (even though I finished 4th, I mathematically avoided relegation only 5 games before the end of the season) You basically don't need any signigs in the first season, great youth prospects and it's going to be a challenge to win it because of Bayern.

    I just finished my first season with Stuttgart and I have to say that I was disappointed with Ascacibar. He looks like the next Gattuso, but he's a really dumb (no other way to put it) player. Too many unnecessary cards, even with instructions to not be so aggressive. Can't play as DM because of his lack of height, nothing special with the ball in CM role. Got offers for nearly 20mil€ for him at the end of the season and just sold him. Got Kramer and Delaney from Gladbach and Bremen, 10mil€ each, because they both got relegated. Barella is a better option.

    57mil€ starting value.
  8. FM18: Serie A - The home of Calcio

    Well, if he's anything like irl I shouldn't have any troubles with players being sold for low fees. I love the Torreira-Linety-Praet midfield. And the good old Gaston Ramirez.

    Downloaded the update and just started a Sampdoria save. You don't even need to sign anyone, and pretty much the whole squad is filled with potentially class players. Should be fun. The only downside is that you need a keeper, since Viviano is injured at the start of the game.
  10. Just downloaded a 514mb update, has to be it.
  11. Just had my first crash dump in FM18. No idea what caused it, just clicked continue and bang. FM 2018 v18.2.1.1051982 (2017.12.31 20.43.20).dmp
  12. This is ridiculous. I finished my first season with Schalke. Second place, 15mil€ incoming transfers, 48.5mil€ earned from transfers. Overall balance in July is 127mil€. And my out transfer to budget revenue is 35% and I can't change it. Spent 36.5mil€ with 28mil€ outgoing so far, while lowering overall wages and I only have 10mil€ left for transfers. So since the start of the save, I'm 25mil€ positive on the transfer bill, I have 127mil€ in the bank and I can't raise the revenue any higher from 35%? With only 10mil€ left in the transfer budget, 19man squad and upcoming Champions League, I don't think this is going to work.
  13. Just started up a new save after not playing for like a month. Decided to go with Schalke. Pre-season went well, everything going as planned and then in the week before the first Bundesliga game two of my starting DCs get injured and the third one gets injured mid-game. Zero other injuries for nearly two months before that, on high intensity team training. And when I lowered it to normal because of the season start and a Cup game during the week, players of the same position start getting injured. Oh well, lost most of my motivation again. Stubbed toe, yea right.

    Yea, even top4 isn't too far fetched if your save ends up having one of those low-point seasons where top teams constantly lose points. They have a good, solid squad and with few bargains should be easy enough to do well.

    I got Mario from Villarreal. Santon is also good enough and he's home grown at club.
