  1. Finally started a save I', going to stick with so I thought why not post a bit of an update on my first few months of the season. Transfers In: Sime Vrsaljko - Dinamo - £4.3m Gabriel Araújo - Cruzerio - £2.8m Lucas Digne - Lille - £2.2m Lorenzo Crisetig - Inter - £675k Yaya Sanogo - Auxerre - £1.9m Oliver Markoutz - Bayern - £1.7m Adam Campbell - Newcastle - £1.5m Iuri Madeiros - Sporting - £275k James Rodriguez - Porto - £8.75m Transfers Out: Park Ji-Sung - PSG - £5.5m Mame Biram Diouf - Napoli - £3.6m Dimitar Berbatov - PSG - £8m Tomasz Kuszczack - Malaga - £500k Larnell Cole - MK Dons - loan Sam Johnstone - Shrewsbury - loan Reece Brown - Southend - loan Tom Thorpe - Exeter - loan I bought in quite a lot of young players and dealt with a lack of quality in depth in the left wing position with the addition of Rodriguez who can also play in attack midfield. Tactics: I'm using the 4-2-3-1 tactic I was developing on FM11 and so far it's working pretty well. GK: David De Gea - Sweeper Keeper - Support DR: Rafael - Wing Back - Attack DC: Nemanja Vidic - Centre Back - Defend DC: Rio Ferdinand - Centre Back - Defend DL: Patrice Evra - Wing Back - Attack MCr: Darren Fletcher - Ball-Winning Midfielder - Defend (slightly adapted) MCl: Anderson - Deep-lying Playmaker - Support (With added Runs from Deep) AMR: Nani - Iniside Forward - Attack AMC: Wayne Rooney - Trequarista - Attack (modifed to have increased run from deep and close down more) AML: Ashley Young - Inside Forward - Attack STC: Javier Hernandez - Poacher - Attack Early season injuries to Rooney and Patrice Evra have meant that Rodriguez, Morrison and Araújo have got more games so far than I expected them to but they are coping really well, so well in fact that I'm dreading the return of Rooney and Evra as it means it will be harder to choose :/. Hernandez has been a beast up front as usual, netting 12 goals in 10 games so far however my other strikers are struggling a bit. Pogba has had a few games but has not been to great as of yet and Fabio has made a couple of decent performances for me in as a central midfielder (although his PM's aren't the best for that position). Had some good results so far including a 5-2 win over Leverkusenand a 3-1 win over City in the Community Shield however I did lose 2-0 to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge . I'm currently sitting top of the league (2 points ahead of Everton) and fully intend to stay here for the rest of the season.
  2. Name: Gabriel Araújo Age: 19 Nationality: Brazil Club: Cruzerio Position: DL/WBL Value: Approx £1.6m at the start of the game (can't remember exactly) Sale Value: I got him for £2.6m Work Permit Needed?: Yes.
  3. I swear Ravel Morrsion is a beast, even in the first season. His stats aren't great but so far for me this season he has made 1(3) appearences and got 2 assists and an average rating of 7.53 which included an absolutely brilliant performance against leverkusen in the Champions League (rating 9.30) where he was unluck not to score and could have had, If Hernandez/Nani's finishing was slightly better another couple of assists.
  4. When your seriously debating whether staying up all night playing FM when you have lectures from 9am til 7pm the following day...
  5. Woud probably use Randri or Claudio depending on what kind of mood I was in. Considering he's from Madagascar though I might even give him a 'nickname' on his shirt from some kind of limur.
  6. I'd like to see us given the ability to dictate the name on the back of a players shirt without having to give them nicknames. In real life some players have massively long names which wouldn't be able to fit on a shirt so are given nicknames for the back of thier shirts eg. Błaszczykowski from Dortmund has 'Kuba' on the back of his shirt. In my long term save for example Barcelona have a player called Jesus Fernandez Fernandez and Fernandez Fernandez shows up above his head on the ME, I just think it would be both easier and look nicer if the player had the ability to change that without having to use nicknames, which are player specific and to me personally are annyoing in the Team Sheet. Would also help when you have many players called tthe same thing. Again on my long term save the first choice Brazil team contains 2 players both called 'Da Silva' and one D Silva, again its incredibly annoying/confusing when you are watching the game.
  7. Afaik, it means niether rather than all of the others. My experience is that with normal players either tend to stick to what thier PPMs would have them do or they just drift into space when and if it becomes available. Not sure though I may be wrong.
  8. I'd like to know the same really, my laptop is easily running FM10 with around 35 leagues loaded (15 years is the furthest ive got before my file was corrupted so its not fully regens) will i still be able to run similair amounts of leagues. Also a kind of related issue, In FM10 it said there was a 125000 person limit on the database, is this to do with PC spec??? If not is it still present in FM11 and if so can i remove it???
  9. I used to use 4-4-2 exscusively but i recently started a new game and wanted to try and manage my tactics alot more to suit how i like to play in rel life and on the game, currently I thinkI have got this tactic working preety well for me I think on fm '09 although thier are some things i'd like to get working better. This is the formation I play normally; (I'm Man Utd btw) Asenjo Opare Vidic Fazio Evra Veloso Camacho Ronaldo Anderson Fleck Laurito The main change I make when I play one of the other very dominant forces in my game, basically just Arsenal or Barcelona, I will swap out Camacho for Sandro and Laurito goes out for Rooney. Also Left Wing is currently in a bit of limbo as I have both Assulin and Fleck who are both very good, I normally chose Fleck though because he tends to cut in a bit more and get behind full backs o set upn chances for himself and others. Was trying to get a formation to dominate possesion which isn't really working however my formation is preety solid and opponents rarely create chances. Goalkeeper; Curently set as just basi keeper instructions, nothing special. Toying with setting his passing to short though. Full Backs; Need high Stamina, set them as reasonably attacking, cross often from byline and run with ball medium Centre Backs; Set quite defensively (the most defensive level of normal on the slider if that makes sense), short passing, ver low cretive freedom Veloso/Sandro; Quite Defensive mentality, passing slightly towards short, high creative freedom, Closing down all over the pitch. Sandro has lower creative freedom though. Camacho; Plays as a more box-to-box player, Mentallity more attacking than the other CM with more direct passing. AMC; I use this player as a link up man; my 2 AMC's Anderson and Kroos also play in CM unlike some other AMC's and this keeps them, in my experience from drifting to high up the pitch. Keep his mentality very attacking (the highest on the pitch), reasonably high creative freedom, through balls often + PPM for killer balls often, run with ball medium, forward runs often, long shots medium Wingers; Preety regular wingers tbh, Ronaldo gets more freedom than my other wingers. Im not sure why but my wingers do tend to get back preety well. Striker; Also preety regular centre forward, works better with a bigger forward but i didn't find that using him as a target man made much difference. Positives; My team although sometimes may not have, a high percentage of possesion but they limit the opposition to few attempts on goal by wining the ball back in midfield, They also use the possesion they do have well. I tend to keep alot of clean sheets and weaker teams, I really hit them hard at times (I beat Hoffenheim 8-0 in the Champions League). I score alot of goals(100+ in the league last year without corner cheat) and thier are alot of players getting these goals, had I think 9 players who had scored more than 15 goals last season and at least 6 more had more than ten. Negatives; (maybe someone could offer some advice on how to fix these) I'd like to have more possesion, Is it realistic to get 60%ish possesion (at home) without turning into Spain, having huge amounts of sideways passes and not really going anywhere. My strikers don't tend to score as many as they did when i played a 4-4-2. It may be to do with the tactic or that I tend to rotate them alot (Laurito; 24 Rooney; 21 Cardozo; 22), I would like them to get more but not sure how with out abusing corners... My goalkeepr tends to give the ball away to easily, has anyone tried having him pass short to CB/FB's all the time, does this cause more problems than it prevents with on rushing opposing forwards??
