  1. Stewart Donald was sold up by October in my first season. Only taken over by a local businessman though, and got £5 million transfer budget for getting promoted so been relying on frees and bargains.
  2. Finished my first season with Sunderland and absolutely stormed the league, managing to win 41 times. My best signing has by far been former FM wonderkid/legend back in 15/16 versions; Donis Avdijaj who I managed to sign on a free and got 26 league goals alongside Grigg's 23. I managed to get rid of the high earners so I was able to sign a few players in to get by the salary cap. I've played two games in the Championship so far and Niall Ennis for £475k is already looking like the signing of the season
  3. Dobson lasted 9 seasons for me where I was an established Champions League winning team. Ended up retraining him as a libero and stayed there until I decided not to renew his contract Neil Diamond ( ) both look great prospects and so does Jack Hackett and Brandon Taylor. It's worth giving them some game time in the cup games at the very least. Hume hasn't changed all that much from last year but seems to be at least decent in this league..
  4. You kinda have to it seems. Managed to offload the big earners like Leadbitter, McGeady and Wyke and brought in players for half/a third of their wages. I wanted to get rid of Dobson and Grigg because they're rubbish but Dobson is actually really solid in this game!
  5. I managed to get Simen Alexander Santos Lyngbø to Sunderland Donis Avdijaj, Tiago Castro and Josh Vickers are decent players on decent wages to consider signing as well
  6. This is quite honestly one of the coolest databases I have ever seen!
  7. In the second season of my save, Juventus decided to splash out £16.75 million on championship player Matt Grimes. Lucas Leiva went to Real Marid in the first season on my save as well.
  8. I don't know about hidden gems, but this guy has incredible ability for the transfer fee he'll command. Available for £3 million and has Spanish nationality for those who are in the premier league.
  9. So this has just happened.. Very possible to get into the final as we have Fulham in the semi finals. January is right around the corner and I already have a few pre-arranged transfers in and outgoing
  10. And in real life. I have a side save with PSG and they're currently in their third in-game season in League One. I guess that's what I'm expecting in reality.
  11. Currently playing as my beloved Sunderland and I'm doing rather well League has been an absolute cakewalk so far. Have been playing a high pressing, possession based tactic. Had some fantastic wins including a 2-1 home win against a near-full strength Chelsea side in the cup. I managed to offload Wyke, Flanagan, Watmore and Ozturk and brought in quality cheap players including Ricardo Ferreira who is an insane player at this level; Max Power is also absolutely mental for League One, I play him in the Mezzala/Attack role and he dominates everything;
  12. Keep in mind that I'm playing as Sunderland in League One; Transfer Listed for £550k at the start of the season. Versatile with great technicals in the right places. :)
  13. Such an amazing post. I do wish a lot of these countries were default without having to unlock in editor
  14. Despite simming the last 10 games due to not being bothered about the Championship, this is how it turned out. Although he was never going to be as good as Tarashaj, Sigurðarson was absolutely phenomenal even with rotating occasionally with James Wilson. Tactically, I went with something that pretty much goes against what Sunderland have always played with; possession football. It's worked absolute wonders, This game against Sheffield Wednesday is a prime example of utter dominance with some ridiculous passing stats; I only brought in Daniel Bentley for £9.5 mi
  15. Here we go... Promotion is about to get a whole lot more exciting.
  16. I'm starting up a new save now with the full version of the game, hopefully Don't let the new £2 million transfer budget fool anyone, there's still tonnes of sellable assets. Kone (if you hate him like me), Cattermole, Rodwell and Jones all a fair whack of money. I also cancelled all of the loans because none of them had future fees.. so not much point paying inflated prices at the end of the season if they play well. I have been extremely busy however and have a squad that is unbelievably strong for the division, in my opinion. Konradsen in my opinion is
  17. Yeah, in the beta he was transfer listed for £4.6 million. Bargain of the century! He's still available on loan I believe.
  18. Spennymoor is quite literally down the road from me and it serves as a source of pride for the area considering Sunderland are a load of toss. Best of luck, definitely following and might play as them myself at some point. The demise of United stemmed from an arson attack at the local social club which was the main source of income for the team. So without much income, they ended up being unable to fulfill fixtures and were removed from the league and forced to fold. During the year that they had folded, they were working with another local side - the other merger, Evenwood Town who
  19. Yeah, Wilson looks absolutely ridiculous in this version and it's seemingly come from nowhere. After a glitch screwed over my Sunderland save, I'm really wanting to revisit Liverpool but they might be a bit too easy this year.
  20. Sadly, since I got a glitch that was featured in the Beta saves, I can no longer play my game, so I'll have to start over, but I really can't be arsed. Basically, I won the FA Cup last season which gives me an automatic place into the Europa League. Problem is, however, I have come to the point where the group stage draw is and it hasn't been drawn... so no Europa League at all.
  21. Transfer listed for cheap at the beginning include Tarashaj, Brad Smith, Florin Gardos, Georges Nkoudou, Andrea Rispoli (I think) and Jean-Daniel Akpa Akrpo is available on a free. All are within the transfer budget. My first season transfers for reference.
  22. We are truly in great position in the game. Huge transfer budget, sellable assets and relatively low expectations in comparison to the squad's ability. I managed to get £5 million for Rodwell, £4.1 million for Billy Jones, £11.75 million for Cattermole and £17 million for Kone. I highly recommend buying the transfer listed Shani Tarashaj from Everton for £4.6 millon. He did.. rather well for me.
  23. Since a majority of the posters in the Liverpool threads are actually Liverpool fans, we tend to post about Liverpool IRL as well.
  24. Just who the hell do you think you are?
  25. Another huge talent I noticed was a wonderfully named Giovanni Troupée. Another full back, I know. Or how about Guus Til from AZ? Dumfries was a favourite of mine in FM 17, it seems he's fallen a bit in this version. I always prefer trying to get squads that have little or no loanee players who make a huge difference to the team. Especially when you can't buy them.
