Has anyone else reached the year 2018 and found that the average age of a player is 30?
Not to mention there is hardly any good regens
Not really, no. Lots of brilliant regens in saves I've had, and squads that more or less seem the same as now.
Teams like Chelsea and Man Utd don't exactly have young first teams now, do they?
Think I'll try and play as Arsenal for a bit...
It kinda bugs me trying to let go of my \/illa save because the days and nights over the holiday I've spent on it... That save could literally be seen as my holiday
This team are ****ing hopeless right now. 3-0 home loss to Almeria sends us to 21st.
I need tactical inspiration. Help?
Well, what formation are you playing?
Flat 4-5-1 right now.
What problems are you having exactly? Scoring? Leaking goals? Getting dominated by the other team in terms of possession?
Would you consider it cheating to edit a players PA to what your opinion of it is?
It's just players like Fran Merida... I couldn't help but notice how his PA doesn't reflect what I think he could potentially do
I would say it's cheating. I think that potentially Hines and Collison are a lot better than they are rated in the game, but I haven't changed anything. I'll just let West Ham's magnificent youth academy develop people better than them.
Anyways, Merida, what exactly has he shown (besides coming out of Barca's academy) that would make you think that he deserves a PA increase?
I'm not sure. I reckon though that this kid has ability and with the right mentality he can become big.
But anyway I didn't go ahead with it. At the minute I'm continuosly making new games until I get players with good PA's....
Mario Balotelli never seems to get a good PA though
God these forums die in the early hours lately...
Heh, it's 11:13 PM here.
Messi has really become absolutely useless for me. You never see any of his great ability when I play him.
Almost into February and we're 18th.
Gone back to 4-3-3 but my team are still playing like a bunch of amateurs.
Think I'll leave if I don't manage to finish in the top half.
Pontevedra 3-1 Celta. Derby win.
What a name. Looks a handy player too, but can't sign.
I hate Gohouri; broke Diao's leg in training ffs. 6-8 months out.
Sociedad, the league's top scorers, now.
Sociedad 3-3 Pontevedra
Threw away a 2 goal lead.
Lauren at RB is looking awful but we're outside of the window now so I'll have to maybe move Botia over.
I looked at his average rating and then promptly released Lauren. :o
Too many posts in a row.
We seem to have turned a corner. *touch wood*
1-0 win over 2nd placed Almeria. We're still only 16th but we haven't lost in 4.
Typically we have Osasuna away next, then Girona away, and then 1st placed Cordoba.
We won 1-0 at Osasuna. Bloody lucky, but finally some resilience in our defending. Julio Cruz with a rocket to win it.
(Getting excited, sorry )
Only bought Adriano Basso from Bristol City for 30k so far in the transfer window.
I need wingers.
Beat Crystal Palace 2-0 for my first win in seven games.
Best defensive display ive seen all season.
Also back up to the point where I quit last save
4 people sacked
4 statements not wanting the job.
From 1 great defensive display to 4 goals conceded in 30 mins against derby. Lost 4-1 (they could have had 7 they missed a pen)
Hersh, perhaps adopt a Barca-esque 4-5-1/4-3-3 with closing down all over the park?
It got Albacete out of a slump!
8 posts in a row :o
Well, we have had the most insane run of form..
We were 18th in early February.
We are 4th in early May.
Unbeaten in 16.

4-4-2 diamond seems to have worked.
We're getting lucky, but we're getting results.
Albacete 3-4 Pontevedra
This is getting daft.
We're closing on third!
Pontevedra 7-2 Gimnastic
"wtf" adequately sums that up.
We're now 3rd; can we hang on for 3 games for an insane promotion?
Just noticed we've relegated 2 teams in 3 games. Jaen and now Gimnastic. :o
As there aren't that many posters, you could just edit your other post with new information to save all these posts
Quality > Quantity
I've been thinking I should. or just start a career thread, providing I commit to this.
Obviously not meaning to post for the sake of posting though.
edit: We beat Cartagena, Xerez lost. We look like we're going up! Incredible.
I'm about to start a Spurs save until it gets boring. I've been playing Connor's Villa save but I'm gonna take a break from it for a while
Albacete 3-4 PontevedraThis is getting daft.

Albacete did me a massive favour. They (5th) beat Xerez (4th), meaning that I am 4 points clear of 4th with 2 games to go.
Is there a way to chart your league position? I think we've gone from about 20th in January.

Click on the number of your position on the league table.
I think Ill just attempt to get promoted 2nd time round, this time telling the board i'll finish mid-table to get more money than just say I wont get relegated.
17th after 25 games, 3rd after 40.
I prefer to play down my chances with the board, keeps the pressure off if things don't go too well. I usually go for the lowest one they offer me unless I'm super confident.
Told you I didn't want to spend long in this division, even though it looked like we'd be going the other way! Not bad for a team predicted 17th.
Its that exact reason why I chose to avoid relegation, and thats what Im doing right now.
Beat West Brom 1-0 at home, so many heart in mouth moments.
Unless you really need the money for a specific player then I think that is the way forward, especially if your contract is up at the end of the year.
Indeed. But with a team like plymouth its hard to find freebies without having a permit denying you or the poor resources.
Mind you I signed Richard Hughes from portsmouth for free and he has been quality
This team will get stuffed in La Liga without changes, but then we'll suffer from the lack of understanding again.. Need to beef up our backroom staff too - physio are awful.
A very cool chart.
£2.5mil for avoiding relegation with an elderly team of mid-table second division players. Wish me luck.
Lost 2-1 to Barnsley with 9 men
I really need a striker. Going to have to go for the 48month trick and hope we stay up.
I hope Dafuge won't tell me off for posting this in here, but my excuse is that I'm thinking of posting this in here at some point.
I'm currently the manager of Getafe in November 2012. I spent two years (or so) at Argentina before moving to Getafe in about November of last year. I saved them for relegation, and have promised a top half finish this season, which I could achieve.
However, Rafa Benitez has just been sacked, with Liverpool sitting in 18th. I'm actually a Liverpool fan, and so have had a couple of starts with them. So really what I'm asking is:
Do I stay at Getafe, and try and make them into a real strong team, or do I jump ship and go and try and save Liverpool?
I should add, that the finances at Liverpool are still bad, but things aren't brilliant at Getafe either with a low club value.
