  1. @zlatanera Almendra is a top player in my side, he seems to play equally well as the DLP-s at CM, B2B and even occasionally as a RM Winger. He has low flair, but he still seems to be capable of beating a man which is probably due to his absurd physical stats. He averaged 7.35 domestically and 7.31 for the champions league campaign, which is surprising, we batter teams in the league so I thought he'd show higher. He doesn't contribute many goals/assists, but as he generally plays the DLP role that's not a huge concern. I am tempted to alter my midfield role pairing to allow hi
  2. I think from now on I will be trying to put absurdly high release clauses into all contracts. Liverpool not only had the nerve to ruin the champions league for me by scoring a dodgy penalty in a 1-0 defeat but also would like to lowball offer £15m for my star player! The player conversation made me laugh, it's been about a week since but apparently, he's already forgotten we had a fairly comfortable run through to the final. He agreed and said he'd stay for one more season! edit: sorry for huge pictures
  3. He played terribly in all remaining big games of the season so I ended up selling him for £27m to Dortmund - with 45% of the next sale coming to us. They finished 4th last season so hoping they struggle and a bigger club picks him up for a good payday to me. Now I have Dolberg unsettled by offers of £15m which is what he is worth, same for Van De Beek at around £12m. Hope I don't get this whole situation again with these two, luckily I have them on longer contracts than I did De Ligt.
  4. I'm 2.5 seasons in with Ajax - De Ligt is worth £22m and has 2.5 years left on his contract. I was getting bids of £60m in the summer window but kept rejecting them/negotiating to £100m. He got unhappy and wanted me to accept bids so I asked him to name a fair price and he wouldn't budge over £50m! I denied his request to leave but he then handed in a transfer request, he's now stuck on the transfer list with me unable to remove him and teams won't offer anything over £25m. Anyone had a similar situation? Currently, the only option looks to be to let him run down to 1 y
  5. Just seen this one pop up in the 1st CL knockout round. Bayer go into the 90th minute with a 4-2 lead, only to wind up losing 7-5, with 4 goals from Neymar, including 2 penalties!
  6. All in the title really.. I like to allow my staff to make offers for players, when it's a useless player I just cancel the transfer - but occasionally they make a good suggestion. Sometimes however I will find the club has zero scouting knowledge on the player, which seems a bit unusual if I have staff members making transfer offers for them. Anyone else encountered this, or have a way round it?
  7. Popped up in my league today. Ref didn't even book anyone!
  8. This thread is making me want to find a savegame where my GK was my best FK taker.. I don't think he bagged too many but I now have the urge to find and continue that save It might not even be on FM14 though..
  9. Don't have a screeny knocking about from when he was generated but he's so good as a treq for my southampton side, knocking on the door of the england squad too. A pity his tackling is so low, otherwise he could have made a very good shadow striker, especially with his amazing pace. His PPMs are to knock the ball past opponent & play one two's more, my coaches say it'd be useless to train his weaker foot, so I think I will work on his passing/finishing/dribbling mainly, unless anyone else has any good suggestions? had an amazing debut season, but dropped off until last season when he c
  10. T'nique's technical stats leave much to be desired... never seen this name before?
  11. End of season report 2013-2014. All in all, a horrible, horrible season. We were by far the worst team in the league which wasn't helped by injuries to key stone members of the squad. League Table: It doesn't look that bad but in reality the only reason we are even close to the other teams is because of a string of extremely lucky results towards the end of the season, Fixture list Our good spells were strangely also around the same time that our keeper wasn't injured. I have no idea what they do in training but he managed to tear his groin muscle, obtain a 'chest injury?' and damage his
  12. Just had one of those games where one team has one shot and win 1-0 despite being second best for the whole match... For the first time in a while though it's been my team who pulled it off. Pic which was then followed by this First back to back wins of the season though I'm not sure if I am proud or not because of the sheer luck involved. May prove crucial in the relegation fight though.
  13. 14 games gone, 20 to go and it doesn't look like it's going to get any easier. I really need a good intake in March to drag me up. Table Positions that could urgently do with being filled are: GK, LB, DM & ST. I'm hoping to get at least 1 if not 2 of those positions filled with potential with the intake (If I've not been sacked by then!) edit: Just lost 5 in a row, no thanks to having my 1st choice keeper and DM both injured. Keeper is out for another 2 months. This is his replacement. conceded 14 in his first 5 which isn't exactly ideal. I think tthe keeper injury may have cost me an
  14. He left on a free Kind of finding our feet in the league after a few played, but I'm not confident I'll keep the job/stay up by the end of the season. Lost in the 2nd round of the cup to top tier opposition. We really should have won, we had an extra man for over half of the game, even more when counting extra time but eventually it went to penalties, we missed all of ours. Need to work on our penalties!
  15. Just started out in Holland, ended up with Rijnsburgse Boys, Profile. The squad looks workable, but worryingly many of the amateur players I can't sign permanently, seen in This screenshot of my best player I hope I can eventually sign them, losing my best players won't help an already difficult challenge. edit, managed to sign a few of them up and hopefully I can keep the rest, that striker has now left the club though
