  1. FM18: Liverpool FC - Pace Abuse

    Hmm I am tempted to start again, currently I have finished s1 and started s2 by like 2 games in the league. But I want to have a save with Mane and Salah playing well for me so will probably start again and tinker with the tactics, but will keep a copy of this current save.

    Amadou Diawara from Napoli (his club at the start of the game) looks great but may cost a lot. They're not willing to sell him on my save but he looks great

    That's what was happening to me in previous FM's, but this one seems to be better in that sense for me.
  4. FM18: Liverpool FC - Pace Abuse

    So, finished 3rd in my first season - was top for a while but then I had so many draws and was always 1-2 points ahead or behind Utd/Arsenal but then Utd pulled ahead and won by two points. Unfortunate but that's how it goes sometimes. Ended up winning the Europa and League Cup so that's something. 21 wins, 15 draws (!) and 2 losses - had the best defence in the league and Mignolet won golden glove as we conceded the least throughout the season. If I'd have won in about 2-3 of those draws, I would have won the league! I was only three points behind. Dolberg was my best player by far, most goals (22) and assists (16), with Mane, Fekir and Couts on 9 goals a piece, although most of Fekir's were from penalties. Managed to get more out of Mane by using him as a winger and switching between support and attack. Harry Wilson was the star of the second half of my season - 8 goals and 7 assists for him and he kept Coutinho and Salah out of the team with his solid and consistent performances. Unsure how I am going to tinker with the squad as there's some inconsistent players and also with Keita coming in, I was thinking about switching to a 433 and also thinking of having a BWM to wreck everyone with.

    Ah lucky! I came third in my group of Bayern, Athletico and Salzburg.
  6. He just got sacked on my Liverpool save. They're sitting 13th at the moment 17 games into the first season.

    I've done that at times in previous saves

    Nice squad you have there! Thanks, will do some tinkering.

    Will give it a try - cheers. Bit of both really, missing chances but mostly missing in action in general.

    Team instructions depends on who I'm playing - either standard or control, sometimes counter. Mainly changing between flexible/fluid shape and only some players with personal instructions. I've been tinkering with the team instructions too - can't remember what but will keep playing around with it. Appreciate the help! I tried one of IFs on support, or whenever Couts plays there he is on support. I've shuffled the MCs about - one on BWM now and the other DLP (D), and it's okay so far, in the one to two games I've played with it - not a large sample size but hey, any improvements are welcome lol. Interestingly, the other players are all averaging 7+ but the wingers are below that, above 6.5 though. Salah only has 1 goal and Mane has like 2 or something and I'm approaching December '17. But even up top, not that many goals. Doesn't help that I don't have a lot of goals in total - Dolberg and Fekir are both on 6 a piece, with 4 of Fekir's from penalties - seems like I need to tinker around more really. I'm still in the top 4, 2 points off the top I think.

    I play both as IF (A) too. So it's: striker role of striker depends on who it is - so F9 for Firmino or Fekir/ CF (A or S) for Dolberg, AF for Solanke and P for Sturridge) IF (A) AP (s) IF (A) DLP (D/S) DLP (D/S) defending or support role depending on game and who is playing in the roles FB (S) LCB BPC FB (S) GK Just seems as though they don't run with the ball or make any proper runs for some reason. I'll tinker about with the player instructions again and hopefully get it working as I like. Funnily enough though, I'm sitting top of the league, 1 point ahead, with 9 games gone.
  12. FM18: Liverpool FC - Pace Abuse

    Just can't seem to get Salah, Mane or Ox to play well for me at all unfortunately. Might just have to try only playing Salah or Mane one at a time on whichever wing. Play a 4231. May end up selling them at the end of the season if it continues this way.
  13. FM18: Liverpool FC - Pace Abuse

    That's a lot of good money received from sold players! How'd you guys stop Sturridge from getting injured all the time? He got fit from the injury he starts with in the game and during an u23 game, he gets injured and is out for a couple of weeks again.

    Yikes, thanks - best of luck to you too! Not sure if you've got it tougher since RBL > Salzburg. Let us know how you get on. How much did you sell Salah and Gini Wijnaldum for? And I'm guessing you got Goretzka on a free or I'm possibly wrong?
  15. FM18: Liverpool FC - Pace Abuse

    Got my CL group for first season and it ain't pretty... Bayern, Atletico and Salzburg. Wish me luck guys...
