  1. End of season update time After much deliberation and advice on here i reluctantly let Charlie Taylor go in January for a with clauses total of £14.25m, brought in Mings on loan and Mavinga for cover. Seemed to notice when Bridcutt was injured or suspended we lacked bite in the middle, so Swindon's Yaser Kasim came in for £850,000. Squeaky bum time -Two wins in ten through Feb and March saw chasing teams close the gap. Would love to scream 'the patch ruined my game, but major injuries to Bartley, Bridcutt, Wood. Janson suspensions ,unfit replacements and chopper Berardi. Put this all down to my high tempo hard tackling in yer face style of play Finished the season as champions four points clear of draw specialists Newcastle. A 3-1 win over them in April gave me the edge While the league campaign was seemingly going down the pan the cups were a real surprise Beat Man Utd (reserves) in the EFL final. Mings sent off early on, Ajdarevic penalty winning it in extra time. In the FA Cup ,after beating Villa, Man City, and Liverpool another final v Man Utd awaited. They now put the big guns out, but still took them to extra time eventually losing 1-3 End of season stats Goals - Antonsson 27, Dallas 22, Wood 15 , O'Kane 13 Assists - Sacko 15, Dallas 14 , (Taylor 12) O'Kane 11 , Avg Rating - (Taylor 7.60), Jannson 7.38 , Bartley 7.30, O'Kane 7.24 MOM - (Taylor 5), Antonsson, Dallas, Wood all 4 New season plans ? Been given a £20 million budget , Jansson , Mings , Sacko and Bartley signed up permanently. Shopping list includes a quality Keeper , Right Back and Striker Tactical rethink on the cards maybe
  2. Thanks guys Though Haidara's at Norwich, Saborits available £185,000 Good shout on Garbutt he's available , in fact i've only just sold all his clauses ... and hes got that Leeds connection i love If i read in the Yorkshire Evening Post tonight that Taylors off in real life, im taking the money. Just realised I've a strange way of playing
  3. Morning guys Update on my annual Leeds save Intention first season is to keep the squad as real and original as possible, so kept Charlie Taylor on. Let Dave go for £1.1m as too many CMs and frozen out in real life, brought in Puerto for cover at CB. Signed Labyad to cover for an injured Hernandez , but hes spent most of his time with him in the physio room Its now Jan 2017 , 24 games in and currently topping the table with a 9 point lead over Newcastle and Brighton Playing a 4231 Counter/ Attacking with main team Green - Ayling , Jansson, Bartley, Taylor - Bridcutt ,O'Kane - Sacko, Hernadez, Dallas - Wood Joint top scorers Wood and Dallas 12, O'Kane 7 Now Charlie Taylor is my major headache Top of the divisions avg rating, top assists with 11, 4 MOM awards. Corner taker, Free Kicks , crosses crosses crosses. Can squeeze out of Leicester a £7.5m fee, plus £1m over 12 months,plus £1m after 50 games, 50% profit next sale, and a bonus of £5m if a 4th place Leicester don't get themselves relegated. Downside there's a buy back fee of 17m . That's nearly £15m for him and i'm still dithering what to do. Main target is Mings but hes not interested. Scouts recommendations Fox at Charlton, Cunningham at Preston ,James at Wigan and Shinnie at Aberdeen. Plenty of other good foreign targets like Cheick Keita and Moussa Niakhate but none are going to change games like Taylor does I feel hes going to be the real difference between promotion or not....£15m now or the bounty of the premier league I've not played the game for 3 days to think about ! Help me out guys ......What would you do ? In other news got Orebros' out of contract Astirt Ajdarevic coming in for a departing Hernandez
  4. FM16: AFC Ajax - de Godenzonen

    Great guide Welsh Wizard Finished my first season with the title Europe was a real struggle to get results Early season struggled with tactics then settled on this Transfers as follows High hopes for these guys End of season Best Eleven Currently starting out the new season and plans are : Turn down all bids for star players with a view to really challenging in Europe. So far rejected good offers for every first team regular. £30m for Bazoer was tempting but no deal. Seems to upset them but they get over it fairly quickly Find a role for Nouri !
  5. Hi guys, inspired by the excellent guide posted by Chef Raekwon ,and some excellent updates by many others I thought id have a go with Ajax. First seasons transfers Had to go for Ekdal as Poulsen out for 4 months. Amartey instead of Enoh. Ola John too good to pass up on for £1.3m Tactic used and my first 11 was Initially planned on Duarte instead of Schone. Injury to Duarte changed this so cancelled Schones sale to Norwich and im so glad i did After a poor start to the season with one win in four things seemed to settle down barring the odd champions league hangovers Tough Champions League group but good wins i felt against PSG and Napoli but defeats to Arsenal. Barca in the next round , went a goal down in the 2nd leg so went for it and suffered the concequence Dutch Cup was a 3-1 over AZ Stand out performers for the season for me were Ola John - 18 goals / 17 assists / player of season / Golden Boot / Young player of Year Siggporsson (when fit!) - 22 goals De Jong - 12 goals / 8 assists Schone - 10 goals / 10 assists Anybody bought their stadium ? I asked ,begged even ....ive now got a £135m loan and £79m in interest ! £8m transfer budget for the new season Currently settling into second season with a few signings and a few tweaks . When i can tear myself away from playing i'll hopefully have an update Thanks for reading
  6. FM13: Borussia Dortmund - Echte Liebe.

    Hi guys , thought it was time to join in First Season Set out with the intention of keeping Lewandowski until his contract expires and to keep the squad as original as possible. Only transfer in was Gabriel Silva on loan as cover for Left Back Played a Rigid Counter 4231 League Won by a clear 10 points over Bayern P38 W26 D6 L2 F81 A23 PTS84 Champions League Lost 0-1 to Real Madrid, poor performance ,Lewa missing a penalty in the 89th min. German Cup Won 2-0 beating Ingolstadt Main men were Lewan 26 goals / 8 assists Reus 23 / 25 Subotic 15 / 3 Kuba 11 / 16 Grosskreutz 9 / 9 Gotze 8 / 16 Second season Stuck to my guns, although selling was very tempting, and kept Lewandowski Notable sales - Kirch £2m , Santana £6m and Weidenfeller £4.9m Got a decent budget and a policy of buying young so brought in Ter Stegen £14m Hoffman £13.5m Goretzka £6.5m Staniciu £5.25m Kept Sahin on loan and resigned Kehl as player/coach Shaky start the season with two losses in first three games but back on track now chasing Bayern Lewa 23 in 23 so far In November now and can get about 40m for him. Main targets to replace him are Lukaku , Rondon , Damiao and De Jong Budgets currently £0 My dilemma - Sell a goal per game striker and disrupt the team or run his contract down and hope the board are generous in the summer ?
  7. Loving my Shakhtar save so far Thought it would be a good game to get a grip of the tactic side of the game and move on but i'm developing an obsession for the club First season signings :No plans for a major first team overhaul ,just back up and potential Nem £3.5m Ademilson £5.25m Stanicu £3.6m Adryan £875k Kvekveskiri £700k Barvinko £6.5m px Gai (Great young Ukraine LB ,potential successor to Rat ) Andrievskyi £4.4m Bezus £7.5m Tymoshuck £100k (High wage never plays, didn't need him but couldn't resist) Out went : Kucher £4.4m Adriano £3.9m Hubschman £2.9m Leonardo £1m Kobin £1m Gai px Barvinko Ilsinho £3.8m Played 4231 GK Pyatov RB Srna - 13 assists LB Rat - 11 assists CB Chygryniski CB Rakitskyi DM Fernandinho / Stepanenko CM Mkhitaryan / Bezus AMR Devic / Costa 12 goals/13 assists AML Teixeira - 22 goals/17 assists and surpsrise of season for me AMC Willian - 14 goals/10 assists ST Eduardo -23 goals/9 assists Love watching the fullbacks Srna and Rat bombing forward The pace and dribbling of Teixeira and Willian Costa hitting the corner flag or the roof of the stand! A 2-4 Beating by Dynamo placed me second in the table missing out by just one point Won the Cup beating Metalist 3-1 Surprised myself by beating PSG , Bayern Munich amongst others on the way to the Champions League Semi, eventually losing 2-4 on agg to dominant Man City Plans for the coming season: Play a settled tactic, spent most of last season learning and changing Win the league comfortably, Get more from Mkhitaryan just 4 goals and 4 assists More goals from Willian Replace Eduardo,good return of goals but need someone bigger and stronger to challenge for high balls into the box. Need to persuade a transfer listed at £34m Damiao to join. Got £50m to spend , praised him loads ,many bids accepted but he just isn't interested. I'm desperate! Any ideas how to get him ? Jelavic at £20m is my other option seems perfect for a creative deep lying forward with a bit of height/strength Will keep you updated
