  1. In my Liverpool save, end of 1st season Emre Can engineered a move to Real, so I went for Fabinho as his replacement, I paid 95mill rising to 113mill with add ons (international appearances and monthly installments). It took ALOT of negotionating from there original asking price of 150odd million. Also a fair bit of tryna unsettle him, and declaring interest, but in the end it is worth it. Quality player so far.

  3. So i'm now upto the beginning of december (I'm such a casually slower player then 99% of people here, also a staging crash on some occasions of saving the game hinders my progress alot). 4321narrow After the first few games in was evident my original theory of how i wanted to play was not working, so with a bit of research I tried to replicate the tactics of AC Milan in the Pirlo/Ancellotti era. Using two Carileros and a dlp in midfield with a playmaker and shadow striker behind a advanced forward. It worked to an extent, until a few serious injuries forced my hand So I tinkered around ALOT, which shows in the beginnning inconsistant form of results. After the Leverkussen game I went with: Basically wanted to use my attacking mids as the main threat, theoretically changing to a 433. My away form though is something to be concerned with, only won 1 an lost 6 on the road while scoring 4 goals. Transfer wise it was an interesting transfer deadline day with the final 2 players joining us, and losing Clemens to fund them. I am overspending on wages by 10k atm, once I finally get rid of Risse an Rausch it will balance out. An Stocker is excelling in midfield alongside Bittencourt If Cordoba was a little bit more clinical, alongside his pace, strength and workrate he would be phenomenal! I'm currently 10th in the league but only 3 points off 6th place, so with now a settled tactic an team im aiming to rise up the league. Also finished top of my Euro group ahead of Everton and Zenit. No pics as I've already clogged this post up lol
  4. So in between work a 3 year old and chicken dinners i'm finally getting around to doing the beginning write up. Just finished all my friendlies an about to embark onto the league. Tactic looks like this: Wanted to go with a battling hard working midfield, no playmaker in amc slots as i'd rather my team attack as a whole an use most of my players. Although I really wanted to try use Pizarro as an Enganche it just didnt work as well as I would prefer. Only role i'm not overly stuck on is wether to stick with a complete forward or use an advanced forward. Atm I am kinda shoehorning Bittencourt and Clemens into the attacking midfielder slot, they've adapted well in friendlies but time will tell when it gets to competetive games. Results wise I really should of won every match: Even tho they were a no mark team my last friendly the team performance as a whole was nigh on perfect to what I wanted. The games I lost basically all had this story.... Transfers wise , so far Ive only signed one player on loan, and basically blew the majority of my budget on him too! Looking into signing another central mid as cover, looking at Jan Kirchoff on a free and hopefully a goalscoring midfielder, altthough so far the best affordable option is Kaiser from RBL. I had a RBL save last year and he performed well for me so. Still trying to sell Maroh, Rausch but to no avail. And I think Risse will be gone too when he recuperates from injury, highly influential player or not. Next up is the cup game and then the league starts. Not looking forward to playing Wolfsburg, Dortmund, Bayern and RBL within my first 6 games tho!
  5. Just realised i'm an idiot, an thought mine said 4312 narrow instead of 4321 narrow Luckily I've not finished my friendlies yet! Time to make some alterations
  6. What are the rules (if any) about your HoYD signing youth players? My HoYD has just offered contract to a 15 year old, are we classing him as a 'signing'? Is it worth me just vetoing the transfer?
  7. So the save is all booted up and had a good gander at the squad. Defo needs some more central midfielders for this 4312 formation. Already taken the ruthless aproach and listed all the wingers Heres the 3 original starting variants Changed to a lower tempo play Now changed to direct passing approach an removed lower tempo Changed the DLP to a CMD Aiming to get a couple of hardworking industrial midfielders in to bolster the depth.

    Anyone else celebrate?

    All the time, It doesnt change with ageing! Even on penalty shoot outs, each one we score I stick to the same position, an same celebration so not to jinx the next one
  9. Has anyone used Can as a roaming playmaker at all? Just finished my 1st season an I predominatly use a 4132 formation. Can has been playing as a DLP at the base an does well. I use a roaming playmaker in my central 3 alongside a cm(s) Hendo, and a cm (a) Klaassen. Tried Coutinho as the roaming playmaker, but he not adapting so far so contemplating selling. Wanting opinions on is it worth moving Can into there or taking advantage of Bayerns interest in Coutinho an doing a deal for Renato Sanches? Also had Ramsey an Keita scouted for that role. Edit- I have tried Countinho as an ap(s) in that position too but the tactic as a whole didn't work as well.
  10. Thanks for the replies. Gonna give him a hell of a lot more game time now. Looks like I might actually not sign anyone this summer!
  11. Hey, looking for opinions on my current save dilemma. Currently end of 2nd season, an won the league. My current centre back pairing is Sakho & Rugani with Gomez as backup. Question is, is it worth signing a new centre back (Stones 60m) an pushing Gomez out to backup right back, or just look to purchase a backup right back instead? Gomez has potential but his current lack of jumping ability and heading is a concern.... anyone had any major experience with him? This is Gomez currently
  12. I'm now just over halfway through the season and so far its going quite well: 2nd in the league behind Barcelona. Although defensively I was poor, conceding far too many goals and chances against me (highest conceded out of top 9!) Im 2nd in goals scored. Lots of i'll score more than you results which is disappointing. Got to quarters of Spanish cup only to be knocked out by Barcelona on penalties. Finished top of group in Euros (contained Hull, Besiktas and Slovan Bratislava) an about to play Kobenhavn in the 1st round. Tactics evolved into a less attacking mentality as I wanted a bit more defensive stability, past 6 games (bar freak Athletic 3 goals) have shown much improvement Control/Fluid Had a few nasty injuries including Ulche out for 4 months and Rukavina out for 5 months, plus with injuries to key players, lack of rotation is playing havoc with their fitness levels.
  13. First update. Having played through my friendlies my tactic an preferred starting 11 looks like this: I was toying with the idea of dropping Bruno back into the BPD role but his 'plays short passes' PPM is putting that off. Gone for Attacking/Fluid philosophy. Transfers Didn't really want to sell Musacchio but after bids from Arsenal and SLB he became unhappy, the only solution was to ship him out, Balanta (obviously) replaced him. The young Vallejo came in to add some depth to the back 3. Radosevic on loan completed my window. Now onwards to the season, although Barcelona for my 2nd game isn't exactly ideal.
  14. Too late/too few posts to be considered?
