  1. I reckon you should have given him it to be honest How come you got him on a free? Who was that stupid haha
  2. I'd still have him in my team haha, I reckon there isn't a lot of difference between him in yours and mine. I've taken him on loan for the next two years, just have to pay his astronomical wage haha
  3. https://i.gyazo.com/103b6eb914327d399e9dfa6c5f79b3d6.mp4 Now I remember why I wanted to bring Tonali back to Roma <3
  4. Juve seem to be trash on my save. I'm in season 6 and they haven't even challenged for the league since season 2 and they've had a bad start this year too. One man team what?
  5. AS Roma - Season 6 Update Transfers Most transfers brought in this season were with the future in mind. Braaf came in to replace the outgoing Diaby, who has been a good servant for the club over the last few years. Try as we may, I couldn't agree a deal to bring Tonali back permanently. Some massive outgoings were made though, when Karl came back off loan, he wanted more first team football that I couldn't guarantee him, so he went out, whilst Tony Heintz came in to replace him for a tidy profit. Oscar Torres also leaves us after a big bid came in from China in January. He was a good player but he never quite fit the style for one position, was always a couple of attributes short. Celso Estevao will be the long term replacement for him at RB, he won't be able to be registered until the new season though. Jayden Bogle was brought in on loan in January to provide cover at RB after Torres left. Results We had our best season yet in Serie A, but it was not enough for the unstoppable Inter team. They were unreal from the very beginning and our results of just one point from six against them certainly didn't help. At least this gives me more motivation to go on and topple them next year though, it's not all plain sailing, even after making us into one of the biggest clubs in the world. Next year, we take our title back. A really disappointing effort in the cup this year, as Fiorentina knocked us out at the semi final stage with ease. They went on to win it, beating league winners Inter in the final. After getting through a pretty easy group with 16 points from a possible 18, we were drawn against Atletico in the first KO round. I thought it would be a pretty tough draw but we brushed them aside with ease, with Esposito on killer form. Then came the challenge of United, who beat us in the final two years ago. We took a two goal lead to Old Trafford but it wasn't enough, a brace from Rashford took us into extra time. It was here our boys turned up though and two goals were enough to send us into a semi final date with Real. A nice 3-2 aggregate win saw us through here and we would meet yet another team from Spain in the final. Absolutely gutting. Unfortunately though, it was the story of our season. An early goal from Mancini was cancelled out by two quickfire goals from Barca then we couldn't shift a gear for the rest of the game, we were poor and didn't really deserve it. A great run though and our third straight Champions League final. Other Competitions With victories over A.C. Milan and Lazio respectively, we become both UEFA Super Cup and Supercoppa champions, but everybody knows that they aren't the trophies you want to go home with. After a long hard season, the lads had to come back off holiday to play in the Club World Cup. After an impressive group stage performance, we drew Liverpool in the Quarters, who we turned over fairly easily. Three days later though, although we dominated, PSG were clinical and took their chances, we ended up having to score in the last minute of extra time to even take it to penalties, which we eventually lost. Typically though, we dispatched of Barca with ease in the 3rd place playoff, where was this performance two months ago? Player of the Season Even though he is now one of our oldest squad members, since dropping back to a deeper role in central midfield, our captain Lorenzo Pellegrini had an amazing season. With 17 assists and 7 goals in 43 competitive games, he was great for us this season, I think it was his best yet. Other notables include Esposito, who bagged 28 in 38 apps in all comps, and new signing Leandrinho, who got 12 goals and 4 assists in 43 apps. I expect more from both next season though. This season was probably the most disappointing so far, but it only motivates me more to go and get our titles back next season. For now though, FORZA ROMA!!!
  6. Nice win! How do you get the player ratings screen to show CHC and KEY?
  7. I ended up releasing him after he went out on loan a couple of times, he didn't look quite good enough unfortunately Nice signing in Haaland! Is he the only reason you started pre-patch? :P
  8. Season 5 Update Transfers Not too many deals were made this season, we brought a couple of frees in to make profit on, ala Brandon Williams, Jean Pyerre and Aaron Ramsey, who we went on to sell. We brought in Tonali on loan, who was a great signing for us, no loan fee and covering his wages was a bargain. Leandrinho was signed for a club record fee and loaned back to Bremen till the end of the season, he will be a key feature next season. Levy was a good signing for us but not quite ready to feature in the first team. We made a whopping £20 million from loaning players out this season, an improvement of £9 million from last year. Results We win the year for the third straight year, this year being our biggest points haul to date, and also our biggest winning margin. It was nice not to go down to the wire like it has in past years. A whopping 29 goal campaign from Esposito helped us along the way as he picks up his first Top Goalscorer award for Serie A. It will now be about keeping him as English clubs sniff around him. We went all the way in the Coppa Italia, winning the trophy for a third time. It was even sweeter, getting a late winner to quell our rivals Lazio, with both our centre halves on target. We were sadly beaten easily by Inter in the Super Cup, an embarassing 5-1 defeat. We weren't given the easiest of groups, but we progressed as group winners, with an impressive five wins from six, which netted us what I thought would be a fairly comfortable 1st KO round tie with Valencia. This was anything but though, as we fell to a 4-2 defeat at the Mestalla, completely outplayed. However, the boys turned it on in the second leg, with a comfortable 3-0 win at Olimpico. A tie with surprise outfit Marseille was gifted to us in the quarter final and what a performance we put in at their place. A 6-1 win with Talles getting 4 was breathtaking, and we could afford to rest players in our 1-0 win back at Olimpico. This set up a semi final showdown with Barcelona. Talles gave us an early lead in the first leg before being pegged back in the second half and beaten, but we had our away goal. A performance akin to the one against Valencia followed though as Talles once again lead the charge and Barcelona were beaten easily at Fortress Olimpico. This set us up a final with Premier League champions Liverpool, knowing we hadn't got a great record against English teams, I didn't hope for the best for us. And what a game it was. We went behind early to a Bobby Firmino goal from a free kick and didn't really show what we could do all game. In the 94th minute it happened though. Alisson made an absolute howler, rolling it out to his defender who was quickly depossessed by Zaniolo, who struck home into an open net. So into extra time we went. There was only one team with the momentum and Champions league hero Talles Magno struck home to put Roma in front. Five minutes later, a header from Mancini sealed the deal and Roma were crowned Champions of Europe for the first time. What a great season it was for the boys. Esposito stayed fit all season long and came back with 37 goals from over 50 appearances. Donnarumma was ever present in our goal whilst Magno was our hero in Europe, with 11 goals from 11 games. Loanee Sandro Tonali was very impressive in his first season for us, unfortunately it wouldn't be financially frugal to make that loan deal permanent, but who knows, maybe we can extend it to next year. With Cristante already agreed a deal to join Real Madrid for £57 million and Tonali unlikely to re-join us next season, we will see a bit of a changing of the guard, especially with Leandrinho joining up with the club proper. It shall be very interesting if we can complete another treble next year. For now though, we celebrate our success. FORZA ROMA
  9. Yeah, I think the summer one was used by the loanee that I got, now he is gone, I may actually have that one I'm freeing, plus one that I'm allowed anyway, we'll soon see haha Yeah no probs, will give it a try anyway, hopefully they'll be wanted by Spanish clubs.
  10. Fair enough yes, you completely got what I was saying. It means I'll be able to register the guy I signed in Jan that I didn't register. By the looks of it though, nothing is stopping me signing non-EU players in and loaning them out to say Spain for example, until they get citizenship and are able to be EU
  11. What bit don't you understand, sorry for confusing you
  12. I currently have 7 at the club who are non-EU, 6 registered and 1 not. 1 of them is leaving as he is only on loan, so maybe the guy that's not registered will take his place?
  13. Okay, so I can only register one new one per season? That mean I can buy in non-EU and loan them out, as long as I don't need to register?
  14. After nearly 5 years of managing in Italy, I'm still not totally 100%, can I buy and loan out a non-EU player and it won't count as my one in per season? Also, what about registering a non-EU player that signed in January but was not previously registered. Absolute clarification on the rule from anyone would be amazing, cheers guys
