  1. start of 3rd season having a pretty terrible time in front of goal kane has only scored 3 in 14 games (they all came against norwich) embolo has 2 although he's mainly a sub, gab barbosa has the most for me with 4 been 6hrs of football since kane scored, seems to be after this patch i couldn't hit a barn door...surely that wouldn't be the case with the new patch as nothing was mentioned regarding shot accuracy somehow i'm still near the top of the league, nobody else noticed that goal scoring has been nerfed a bit? on the other hand i've only conceded 3 in the league so swings & roundabouts just strange as i haven't messed around with my tactics too much, i'm getting at least 2/3 CCC most games and 4 HC ...getting a bit frustating even more so eriksen picked up a 2 month injury
  2. finding it harder on this new update, in august played 4 won 1 vs man city, drew 3 having plenty of ccc but keepers are pulling off worldies and i seem to hit the woodwork lots! already 6pts off chelsea in first place, also man city, utd & arsenal seem to buy about 3 strikers every tfr window it's crazy, city have just bought vietto, alcacer & morata all in summer 2017 they already have aguero, volland and ljajic
  3. whats up with the contract negotiations? was testing it out on marquinhos first offer said no and then i just agreed to the agents offer and it comes back that i failed to make an acceptable offer for this client and ends after 2 rounds of negotiations...seems to happen with every player now 17yr olds or experiences pros
  4. having a bit of a melt down just after jan...1 win in 8 a heavy 5-0 loss to arsenal in fa cup, throwing a 3-1 lead away to west brom confidence is low, i had an 11 point gap at the top...chelsea are only 3 behind with a game in hand and indentical goal diff welp!
  5. Paul scholes?
  6. Carsten Jancker is a 4.5* attack coach on my game
  7. Yeah I mean tweak the team instructions as and when you're in a match I normally start off with the same TI and depending how we play adjust accordingly I've recently taken eriksen to close down less as I noticed he was ending up all over midfield and he just scored 4 first half goals against Basel so not the best team in the world and I also normally have Dier playing as an anchorman which allows eriksen and alli to push on a bit more knowing that they have cover Create a lot of chances most games and have a very solid defensive record would prob win by bigger margins but Kane can be quite wasteful
  8. sorry for late reply mate, generally leave the tactic the same although might alter the closing down and maybe drop the defensive line down to normal depending on if there's many through balls going past my defense, or i'll add work into box if crosses aren't working etc notable player instructions; GK - pass it shorter, distribute to fb & roll it out / WB's - stay wider, cross more often / AP - get further fwd, roam from position /
  9. Gonna try get rid of mason but I think that might be a little bit harder, might try and sign Lewis cook as my replacement for nabil and mason as a rotational option and Gotta try ship out Townsend either sign pavon from boca or gray from Birmingham
  10. Ah right ok I'll give that a try tonight and yeah it's for his defensive coaching as Stam got poached and I had to waive his compensation for a managerial role
  11. Well it's 34.5m all together with 30% profit from next tfr added on It's a bit like real life tbh alli dembele dier and eriksen are my midfield pairing that switch around plus I have tielemans and ajer and then we have a few of the original youth players I want to try and integrate
  12. Buying/Selling: Selling Player Name: Nabil Bentaleb Your Team: Spurs Buyer/Seller: Man City Player's Value: £22m Offer: 24m upfront, 4.4m over 12 months, 6m after 5 intls & 30% of profit from next sale Transfer/Wage Budget: 27m /2m Patch: 16.2 Season: end of season 1 hasn't really started for me in the league, making only 4 starts and 16 sub apps with an avg rating of 7, has 2 yrs left on his 16k deal
  13. how much would you take for bentaleb? I'm in Jun16 and man city come in for him i negotiated to 24m upfront, 4.4m over 12mths & 6m after 5 intl games his stats for last season started 11(21) - bearing in mind 7 of those starts were for Algeria avg rating 7.13 in the lge for me 4(16) no goals or assists avg rating of 7 - do you think that offer from man city is too cheap? he's got two years left on his contract and is worth 22m
  14. not sure if this is a bug or not, but Paul Robinson (Brum LB) he's got staff attributes available and is a player/coach @ brum Despite having a year left on his contract (expires jun17) & non-playing job offer release clause in his current contract, whenever i try and speak to him to become a coach or even player coach the transfer date is always blanked out and I can't suggest anything to him do i have to bid for him or is it a bug, maybe he still wants to be a player i don't know just a bit annoying if i have to wait for him to retire before he'll sign
  15. so quick summary, FINALLY finished my 1st season (can only manage a few hrs in the evening & i spend ages just browsing around) won the league eventually, was looking a bit tough as i had a bit of a crazy fixture pile up like no more than 2/3 days between games from middle of april until may didn't do too well in the fa cup, tried playing weakened teams and ended up getting a few replays around jan/feb which i really didnt need then against Everton played a strong team and they didnt really turn up Carling cup weakened team came up against city and they won 3-1 Somehow got the final of the Europa, didnt really plan to and had tricky knockout games vs Marseille, Athletic, Roma, Lazio & then met Wolfsburg in the final and put 3 past them in an easy 3-0 win Eriksen was my best player by a mile playing as an AP in cm everything from him was just perfect kept the ball, pressed, set up goals, even in 0-0 games he'd end up with a high 8 rating, unbelieveable player made it into the FIFA Pro starting 11 in Jan16 not quite sure how Dembele got in there, not cos he was poor im just guessing because Dier although solid as an anchor man didnt get the high ratings consistently? and yep once i put Kane as a CF on support he was much more effective constantly putting balls inside the fb's for my wingers to run onto and get a crack on goal, big shout to Alli played near enough every match and put in countless top displays alongside Eriksen as BBM Might try and shift out Vorm, Chadli, Mason & Pritchard this summer, want to bring Veljkovic through as he had a cracking season with promoted Burnley and won Championship player of the month just not sure where i'll be able to fit him in, I struggled to play Bentaleb he got the odd game here and there and was moaning a bit earlier in the season, also wanna try give Winks a few games and maybe Onomah as they have fairly decent stats as you can see from my tfrs below i've got two pretty decent back up keepers, Rajkovic got denied a WP so he spent half a season on loan in bulgaria, hopefully when i appeal it goes through, Donnarumma snapped him up in January for about £6m including add ons and Tielemans was the same low upfront and hes got an add on of 16m for reaching 50 goals something i dont see him achieving anytime soon. Fazio was shipped out at a bit of a loss, like irl he's too slow for my high line press and would be badly exposed vs anyone half decent not sure where i'm going to start probably a IF for the left hand side been debating Demarai Gray - still @ brum with 5m release or Cristian Pavon @ boca who's slightly more expensive and there's also Embolo as well who I imagine is going to be quite pricey - only got 18m tfr budget so far but looking to sell Chadli for about 14m should help
