  1. Hey guys, I'm coming up to the January window in my first season as Newcastle United and I'm looking for some suggestions for a striker to lead my line akin to the likes of Shearer. Obviously not on that level with the budget I've got but someone thats good all round and will do a decent job in the Premier League. Mitrovic is scoring albeit inconsistently, Gayle is always injured and Joselu couldn't hit a barn door with a shotgun!! As for budget I've got around £10m and £70k wages, but if someone get suggested I may try and ship off Joselu for whatever I can, possibly £6m?
  2. He is a very nice guy and has a five star potential. Started with mighty Newcastle United. 10 episodes till now. Any feedback or ideas are welcome.
  3. Hey guys - Ive recently started to youtube after fmscout.com brought me into their youtube team hope you will take a minute to check out my channel. Currently doing a Newcastle United Playthrough and on fmscout.com doing vids such as top 10 fullbacks etc. Hope you will have a look I'm also doing a fm18 giveaway to be draw on 8 NOV all you need to do is sub and like EP1 i'll put a link in . Thanks for your time guys hope all your saves are killin it! - Peace out - Denj
  4. I`m currently playing FM for the first time and since i did not want to buy it immidiatley i started with FM10 that my dad had played when it came out. Since i have basic understanding of managing and watched my dad play the game i decided not to make things too easy but because im only 13 i did not want it to be too hard. I chose Newcastle but i as given an ageing team "will do" team. Anyway i was expected to lead the team to promotion which is fair enough. I was given a transfer budget of 0 POUNDS meaning that i needed to pull off some heroic **** to compete for promotion. I got 3 wins 1 draw and 3 losses in Preseason. When i won i battered the opposition when i lost it was 1-0 apart from one 3-1 battering. I started with a 1-0 away loss against West Brom fellow Promotion candidates that my assistant Chris Hughton suggested are favourites for the win as did the media. I won 2-0 against Reading with a confident display and then a 0-2 win against Sheffield Wed with a bad performance. Why in the hell do the board want to sack me? The results have been decent imo.
  5. So NUFC are back in the Premier League, Rafael Benitez has left & they have replaced them with a new, younger manager in the form of Jamie Henderson. How will they cope? Find out in the live stream. I welcome any viewers and would love their input on the live stream chat on tactics, players and anything else. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MEye4Q7BbQQ
  6. So it turns out I suck at managing lowly clubs with little money. I couldn't cut it with Birmingham City and the board expect too much. Well not to worry as Newcastle had no hesitation in bringing me to St. James' Park. The club has money and a fair amount of it at Championship level and attracting players shouldn't be too much of an issue, especially when we reach the Premier League. We've got a damn good squad at this level, if not too good. So I won't really need to invest in the first team. I can set my sights on injecting youth prospects into the academy and getting them trained up. Tctically I'm going for a fluid 4-4-1-1 with thanks to @ManUtd1 . Have been reading your posts on the nearly men of Europe and took some inspiration!
  7. A brief prelude: This is my first purchase since FM14. I feel like since I last properly played the game, I've developed a much more concise idea of football cultures, style and tactics and this led to my urge to play the game again. Also reading a few of the stories on here has inspired me to detail my own. Choosing a team to manage, it was never going to be anything other than Newcastle United. They're my team have have the potential for growth into an elite club. They just need my help! What do I want to achieve in the long term? End the club's major trophy drought (now standing a ridiculous 48 years). Develop the academy to produce players for the first team. Play intense, attractive, attacking, winning football. Create a winning culture, something the club has lacked for years. That last point is difficult to quantify exactly in the game. It's a problem that set upon Newcastle United from c.2012-2016 and culminated in a second relegation to the Championship in the past 8 years. The strategic direction for transfers on the playing side was to sign younger, cheaper players from Europe, develop them for a number of years and then sell once a big offer came in (see Sissoko, Moussa). This worked initially, but fell apart as those brought in were not up to the task, failing to address gaping holes in the squad. There was also a depressingly hilarious disconnect between those in charge of transfers and those coaching the team. An example would be signing a Target Man type in Mitrovic despite having no wingers to provide crosses. In Summary: An imbalanced squad lacking talent and application Players who had no bond with the city or fans A culture of malaise and low ambition Not enough players with a 'winning' mentality Chapter 1: A False Dawn Before loading up the game for the first time, I spent a good few hours reading some guides and experiences on here. It's safe to say I learned a few new things, especially relating to the impact of personalities, tutors and tactics. Shape, Mentality and Team Instructions Upon starting, the first screen I gravitate to is the tactics builder. Because one of my goals above is to rebuild the culture of the club, I want to try and instill my tactical philosophy from day 1. This will be built solely on a future vision, not built on the players I currently have at my disposal. So, what is the tactical philosophy I wish to implement? It can be summarised in 4 points. A co-ordinated high press. Attacking football based around width, movement and penetration. Intensity. Intelligent players being given the freedom to show their ability. Having learned from some of the excellent threads on here, the Mentality and Shape that suits what I want to do above is a Very Fluid Shape. This provides the compact shape for a high press, and gives the players complete freedom to show their ability. A standard mentality (standard attitude to risk) should provide a good balance; let the players decide when to push and when to sit back. This brings us on to Team Instructions. Tempo - Much Higher: I want maximum intensity in attack and especially in my pressing. Time Wasting - No change. Width - No change. Def Line - Higher to close space between the lines. Offside Trap - No: I've only ever had bad experiences when using offside traps, personal preference not to use them. Closing Down - Much More: Needed for the high press. Prevent Short Kicks and Tighter Marking - Both yes as they help with my high press. Play out of Defence - I don't want to be preaching to the players about how to attack, but I've not got the set up to play a long ball game, nor do I really want to. Pass into Space - Yes: I find this goes really well with the high tempo approach, lots of forward runs and through balls. Low Crosses - As much down to personal preference but I want my onrushing midfielders and wingers to chip in with goals too. High crosses will not be their forte. Formation, Roles and Duties The above 4-4-1-1 is what I settled on as my formation in the first season. I was never wholly comfortable with it and tinkered with the roles and duties of the central midfielders especially. As I'll come to detail later, I eventually moved away from this shape and onto something new. My main tactical post will come in chapter 2, as I don't want to dwell on something that won't be a part my plans moving forward. Players As you'll have noticed, I've not really discussed the specifics of players and the squad so far. I only made a couple of loans in the first year, perhaps under the arrogant belief that I couldn't fail but get promoted. Additionally, as stated above, I wanted to focus on implementing my desired culture rather than build something tailored towards players who won't be here in the future. You can guess how that turned out. For the future, I'll be looking to bring in players who meet the below criteria (in addition to specialised positional attributes). These fit my culture, shape and tactic. Determination Work Rate Stamina Vision Decisions First Touch Other Notes I wanted to highlight some further reading I did and changes I think applied during the season. One of the things I didn't previously realise was how the personality of a player can affect his training and development. With a cultural philosophy or developing young players for the first team, this is something I need to factor in from day 1 via training and tutoring. Related to the above was discovering that the Head of Youth Development's personality reflects that of the youth intake. So Joe Joyce received his P45 and Kristjaan Speakman was brought in. A shame really, as Joe is quite a talented coach. I'd already made several requests to Mike Ashley to invest in widening the youth recruitment network and to improve the junior coaching budget. The first intake was disappointing on the whole (one potential 4.5* talent and little else), but this is year 1 and in more time better prospects should emerge. I had set up some tutoring on past editions but without any real idea on exactly how it was beneficial to the younger players. In my experiences so far, the right tutor has improved determination and personality in youth players. I intend to use this to improve my 'winning' culture to create a determined and professional squad. As you may have guessed, the season did not end as I had wished. We finished 3rd, which at best could be described as an underachievement. A crushing 1-0 defeat in the playoff final had me genuinely fearing for my job, but luckily Mike Ashley appreciated my failure (as he does) and came calling with a 2 year contract. If this happened in reality, I would certainly be demanding my instant sacking on twitter, but there we go.
  8. I have noticed on football manager mobile 17 that multiple teams in the championship are missing first team players, I am playing as Reading and noticed that they are missing four or five players, summer transfers like Callumn Harriot and Sandro wieser and academy products Liam Kelly and Dominic Samuel, all who have made multiple appearances with the first team this year. But there are many other teams with thin rosters in the league. I am playing with large database turned on as well.
  9. Just a heads up that in FM17 mobile that Ayoze Perez is missing from the Newcastle squad
  10. So I managed to get promoted from the Championship as Newcastle first season, second season I managed to swing my way to second place in the Premier League! Guaranteed CL football, lots of money, glorious. Signing some great young players, all good. Except this happens; Reputation Update League Table How is that even close to correct? Fortunately I secured Martin Odegaard on his third year of loan here, I'm hoping I can sign him this year, he doesn't want to move here atm because "we don't meet his required ambition" or somesuch rubbish.... Key Player in a now CL football 60,000 seater stadium.

  12. Hey all, Playing as Newcastle, won the Championship - somehow - first season but got a LOT of draws like 1-1, using a similar tactic to what I'm using now. Periodically I get a good result, but most the time it's tough. Now I'm in the Premier League I can't afford to lose too many! I'm trying to read what's going on but I'm awful at it. I've read 'having an idea' of what you want your team to do, and starting with that concept and I've been reading some tactic guides. I could just go and plug in someones amazing tactic and auto-win everything, but that's boring. However I don't have a footballing mind, either, so it's just silly. Formation and tactics attached. So initially, getting Maffeo and Lato I wanted to create an overlapping full back situation to cross the balls in, AMR was a IF and AML a Winger. Since then I've gone to two wingers and kept the fullbacks relatively back, because I kept being cut out. Initially I had a big problem with them simply passing through my defensive line but that seems to have slowed. Added to this, Youri Tielemans, the most expensive Championship (now PL) player cos I promised him the world to get him, (and he's costing me a fortune because of it) wants to play AMC in a Playmaker role, else he'll get pissy, so if you guys can incorporate that too I'd be very impressed. My main problem is I'm not putting away as many chances as I'd like, and despite generally good possession, it's useless unless I'm doing something with it. I'm a little lost in terms of my direction now, because while I want something akin to a solid passing game and some good crosses, I keep wandering, and I think it's only making it worse. Some pointers would be very much appreciated. If you need more info please ask. Edit - I should add, I conceded the least goals in the Championship last season, which was great. However the goals were critical ones - really I should have walked that league, and I won by just a few points. Leading 1-0 I'd come out 1-1, instead of putting the chances I had to bed. Ritchie has a PPM to shoot from range, but everyone else it'd be nice if they didn't BLAM it from miles away.
