  1. FM18: Liverpool FC - Pace Abuse

    I must be doing something wrong. This happens nearly every year too. I cannot sell players, I decided to sell Coutinho, knowing I would not get his real life price, but happy with hopefully 80-90mil if I can convince a team to pay that. I got offer 32mil max.. Nice.
  2. English Wonderkids

    Woodburn is a wonder kid in game. Oh yeah, totally forgot he chose Wales, lol. Was born on the boarder in Chester I think
  3. FM18: Liverpool FC - Pace Abuse

    Hate this game at times, made all 3 subs early, had 3 injuries in next 10 minutes, so was 3 short on field, lol. Lost Coutinho (4mths), Dolberg(8mths), Ox(2mths) in the one game!! Still have Lallana and Clyne out too. with Matip not injured, but down to 20% condition for some reason, must of had a bender last night. Just lost Milner for 5 weeks now too. Going well!!!
  4. FM18: Liverpool FC - Pace Abuse

    Does anyone else get rid of Mane as soon as they can? He is a reasonable player, but I use IF not wingers, and as a IF Salah on the right and Coutinho on the left is so much better. So I sold him. Ox and Woodburn are my backups for those positions.

    I got Asensio cheap, but he makes Sturridge look fit and healthy 24/7..
  6. FM18: Liverpool FC - Pace Abuse

    First season of new save, focused on youth really. For some reason my tactic is unbeatable against any side in England, but I get smashed in the champions League. Will win EPL, I surrended the other cups to rest players and try some youth. Woodburn just gave Arsenal the finger with a Hat-Trick away from home in the Euro Cup, lol.
  7. FM18: Liverpool FC - Pace Abuse

    I got him for 36mil at start of game, well worth it, he and Keita will ruin teams.
  8. FM18: Liverpool FC - Pace Abuse

    Finally got one cranking that feels ok. At start of game, first thing to do is scout your but off for players as there seems to be quite a few Regens that the game generates, 10-15 of them are class and you should be over them like I am all over Double Chocolate Mud Cake with whipped cream on top. Signed Diawara de Ligt Koulibaly Out Ings Markovic Klavan Grujic And loads of useless players for 2-3k each. Players that look the darn Goods!! (Stars) Wilson Gomez Woodburn Origi Good Youth Squad/Backup Players Tagseth Brewster Ojo McAuley Dhanda TAA Wilson is who I am most excited about, never had him look this good before so never used him!
  9. FM18: Liverpool FC - Pace Abuse

    Something off for me in this years game. I have restarted my save 10 times I reckon, each time something feels wrong and I restart!
  10. FM18: Liverpool FC - Pace Abuse

    Just finishing up the first season. I struggled at first, in fact, I sucked. I tried making my own tactic and they just never worked. So I grabbed someone elses tactic, a formation I normally never use, 4-2-4. It worked amazingly!! I have been unbeatable pretty much since. Won EPL and League CUP, FA Cup and ECL to come!
  11. FM18: Liverpool FC - Pace Abuse

    Just to let youknow, there is no goal difference in the Champions League IRL. So if we lose they next game, even by 1 goal, we drop to third and are out of the Champions League. Back to the game, all is actually going ok, a lot of players are playing average but as a group we are strong, no single performer. Using a 4-2-4 really.
  12. FM18: Liverpool FC - Pace Abuse

    I can't win a game, lol.. My tactics are not working at all!!
  13. Hey All.. When editing a tactic, is it more important to have team structure, or alter the player roles to suit the player more? So if you use 2 inside forwards, but one player, like Mane, is a better winger, do you change his role to winger or stick to your tactics structure? Of cause if you change the role, you better have your Wing Back right on support otherwise he will create to much overlap with Mane, which will leave a hole, so you change your DR to WB-S.. Or your central defenders? Tactic is for CD- De, but Matip is better at DCB - De.. Do you change his role to suit him? Or Milner, a B2B midfielder, but you use a Playmaker, do you change tactic structure to suit Milner, or leave it and hope he goes well? And so on...
  14. I really hope the new signings are in FM18 are don e correctly. Like OX plays CM, but in FM17 he is not even close to natural at it, Salah can play AML as good as right in real life, but not in game etc.. I downloaded an up to date database and I cannot really work with it. I have Mane, Salah and Ox only really capable of playing in the AMR position.
  15. Very interesting tactic, close to what I use but I use the 3 attacking mid formation with 2 wide, but never thought of 2 SS instead with no striker.
