  1. Only way I know how to do that is name your manager a normal two names, then go on your profile in the game, right click on your name and 'set nickname'
  2. Just read the whole thread, Wow! Great career so far, you have to go back to Benfica one day! Any tactical tips? Keep trying to start a journeyman career but always fail with my first season at the lower quality clubs
  3. LIVERPOOL SEASON 2013/14 Finally finished my first season as the Red's and managed to win the league! Was unbelievably impressive in upto the new year then struggled a bit more but managed to grind out results and finished top of the table with 81 points. I disabled the summer transfer window and made no changed in the January window, as I want to develop the young talent we already have. (other than a few loans out such as Luis Alberto, Samid Yesil, Joao Teixeira and Brad Smith. This was how the Premier League finished.. The top performers of the season were as follows.. LUIS SUÁREZ Despite only scoring 16 goals, Suárez assisted 17 and had a average rating of 7.54. He was also awarded the World Player of the Year for 2013, the writers Players of the Season and was named in the world and Premier League teams of the season. He played in the hole behind Daniel Sturridge as a Trequista. JORDAN HENDERSON Hendo had an unbelievable season on the right wing in a defensive role and was rightfully awarded the supporters Player of the Year award, aswell as being named in the Premier League team of the year and was runner-up for the PFA Young Player of the Year award. He grabbed 10 goals and 10 assists during his 38 appearances and went on to play every world cup game for England in Brazil. DANIEL STURRIDGE Studge was the clubs top goalscorer with 20 goals in all comps and was the second highest goalscorer in the Premier League under Robin van Persie. Sturridge also contributed 10 assists and went on to be a star at the World Cup for England in the summer. PHILIPPE COUTHINO Coutinho had a stormer of a season up until the new year and then went quiet all of a sudden. Despite this, he managed to end up on 13 goals and 13 assists in all comps. He was therefore named as the PFA Young Player of the Year and also European Golden Boy of the Year. Coutinho scored some screamers too including a 27 yeard free kick against Man Utd in the last few minutes to win the game 4-3 at Anfield. SIMON MIGNOLET Simon Mignolet kept an impressive 15 clean sheets throughout the season and was awarded the Premier League Golden Gloves award. He finished the season only conceding 33 goals in 36 games. JOHN FLANAGAN Flanagan put hard work in all season in the right back role when selected and has since been chased by several teams such as Swansea, West Brom and Aston Villa. If he continues with his good form he will take over Glen Johnson in the regular starting line-up. This was how I set up for the season and this was mainly my starting line-up.. Unfortunately, I exited the League Cup in the 3rd round against Spurs then got upset by Blackburn in the 5th round of the FA Cup. Hopefully next season I can progress further in these, especially the FA Cup Objectives next season is.. - Progress the youngsters as much as possible such as Jerome Sinclair, Jordan Ibe, John Flanagan, Jordan Rossiter, Harry Wilson, Suso, Andre Wisdom, Sheyi Ojo etc. - Reach at least the quarter finals of the UEFA Champions League (small steps for now ) - The final of the F.A. Cup - Retain the Premier League or at the least come runners-up. - Build finances to eventually build new stadium. This was one of my favourites of last season.. notes the 29 shotes and 61% possession Elsewhere in the game.. - Everton finished 13th after sacking Martinez and hiring Martin Jol. - Newcastle challenged for the Premier League all season then crumbled in April. - Man City won the FA Cup and reached the final of the Champions League with Carlo Ancelotti, but lost 5-2 to Barcelona. - Winners of their respective leagues are Bayern, Monaco, Barca, Benfica, Celtic, Ajax, Juventus. - Most notable January transfers was Shaquiri to Chelsea, Vertonghen to City, Smalling to Spurs and Griezmann to Arsenal. Just started the second season so I will post the changes to the club during the summer and so on in a bit!
  4. Finally got into a save and going into February unbeaten top of the league! Tactic I created is working wonders for possession.No stand-out star performers eith er really, just whole team is generally all chipping in I'll post some screenshots this week hopefully when I get to the end of May!
  5. Really struggling finding consistency with tactics. How long is it before you all change a tactic what your using? I find I win around 3-4 games then everything falls apart. I know I need to keep a tactic in place for the players to get familiar with it but it's hard not to change it when your getting beat 2 or 3-0 at Anfield! Also, whats the best way to get SAS in a tactic as in positions and roles, so that there most effective? I'm finding all my goals arecoming from Hendo, Coutinho and Sterling
  6. Must be restarting for the 10th time after really poor results and non-functional tactics.. This is the last try!
  7. Can anyone who has had a good first season without making any massive transfers post their tactic? I don't mean to download, but maybe a screenshot of formation and team instructions please?
  8. Has anyone come across successful individual instructions for the current Liverpool squad? or any effective training on individuals to learn new moves?
  9. And just drawed my home team in the 3rd round of Capital Cup, Liverpool
  10. Hello lads, started a Forest save yesterday after having a great four season save with them on FM12 and already loving this one despite just being a month in! I started with no transfer window to keep it realistic and self added Jermain Jenas on loan until January. (Although meanwhile he has signed a new contract with Spurs which will make it more difficult to keep him after then.) Only changes to the club is I signed Bobby Downes as a coach to the first team and Paul Winsper as a Fitness Coach. I also picked up Asier Del Horno on a free transfer to play in the LB role, but only on a season contract for now. Anyway here's my results so far.. PRE-SEASON Northampton (a) - 3-0 (Guédioura, Jacelles, Blackstock) Woking (a) - 3-0 (Pegg o.g., Coppinger, McGugan) Port Vale (a) - 0-0 Oldham (a) - 0-1 (Madjewski o.g.) AUGUST Bury (h) - 2-0 (Ayala, Jenas) Capital Cup Rnd 1 Huddersfield (h) - 2-2 (Del Horno, Guédioura / Clayton, Arfield) Championship Hull (a) - 3-1 (Guédioura, Gillet, Cox / Fryatt) Championship Leicester (h) - 0-1 (Knockaert) Championship QPR (h) - 1-0 (Sharp) Capital Cup Rnd 2 I play a balanced flat 4-4-2 with a direct countering style.
  11. Been playing FM13 for a few days now and everythings been fine.. until today when I loaded it up and the text colours have changed?? white on the player attributes page and bright bright blue when a player is loaned out. Any solutions?
  12. WOW, one of the best team threads I've seen in a while! Well done
  13. How is everyone finding tactics and formations with the Reds squad this year? Can't seem to find a consistent tactic with my 4-3-3 and 4-1-2-2-1
