    Aston Villa financial error

    FFP means that any money we have to spend will only be small amounts though, doesn't matter the richness of the owners

    Aston Villa - Season 2

    Why do you need a new RB with Bree being there?

    [ENGLAND] Aston Villa Data Issues

    https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/aston-villa-gardner-elphick-loan-15385361 There is an article indicating whichplayers should have recall notices in, as it stands none of them do in game

    [ENGLAND] Aston Villa Data Issues

    Per recent interviews with the manager, both Green and Elphick have recall clauses in their loans and can return in January. These recalls are not available in game

    Aston Villa Help

    Really Interesting that, I can't get either of them to score, however both are playing a bit part role up top, Bolasie has tucked away double figures from the left, and El Ghazi has 8 from the right i think with Abraham on 19 up top (and its only January). The other strikers Hogan has 0, Kodja has 1 and Davis has 1 (though he has only made 2 appearences, i wanted him out on loan but he wouldnt go). Grealish hasn't got many through the centre, in fact O'hare has scored more in that position from fewer games

    interesting you are building around Hogan up top, I find Abraham such a big improvement to him, is there a reason you prefer Hogan?

    Aston Villa - Season 2

    The squad the game starts with should be good for a mid table premiership finish, may need a replacement striker for Abraham if you didn't get him on permanent transfer and Davis didn't get enough game time to develop. Green coming back off loan gives you your replacement winger. If you were going to target one position get a top drawer centre back, as Tuanzebe isn't really worth signing again.

    Aston Villa Help

    I'm playing as Villa and haven't lost a game by January (including premier league teams in Carrabo cup). Tactic: Gengenpress deafault no changes with formation 4-2-3-1 all default roles for Gengenpress GK - Nyland RB - Hutton CB - Chester CB - Tunzabe LB - Taylor CM - McGinn CM - Houihane (Bjarnsson/Lansbury as fitness dictates) RW - El Ghazi AMC - Grealish LW - Bolasie ST - Abraham Others subbed in as required. Never playing anyone with fitness below 95% (Squad is so huge you dont need to) Sold - Whelan, Jedinak. Elmohamady - Far too many players in their positions already Signed - One crappy CB as a backup (can't remember who off the top of my head) on loan as cover for CB/LB - Bedeau does most of the CB cover though

    How are you actually handling the Manager and signings in game, are you manager to complete the signings and the 'head coach' is your assistant?

    Euro Cup 2025

    well thats why england is overpowered then...
  12. Loads in league 1 in real life. Just this weekend there was 1, if you get a bad weekend you can often get close to the full fixture list wiped out. Wouldn't expect every team to have one every season. But if you are one of the lower funded teams in there (which I am) I wouldn't think that you would go more than 2 years without a postponed game, and some years you could get up to 4/5
  13. Hmm, 6th season in league one now and i've not seen a single league 1 match postponed
