Liverpool - Nov 2012

GK - Reina

DR - Johnson

DCR - Coates

DCL - Agger

DL - Enrique

DM - Lucas

MCR - Gerrard

MCL - Adam

AMR - Hulk

AML - Di Maria

STC - Suarez

This was my first choice at the start of the season, but a long-term injury to Suarez has me playing Hulk up front and Hoilett as AMR and Suarez may not get his place back.

AS Roma (2015)

i try to live up to my no-regen policy for as long as possible. all my players exist IRL. and i've never spent more than €9.0m for a single player

abCoxxuabt.jpg

red team is my starting XI, white team are my bench/reserves. don't mind the arrows and the weird positions. i drew them for another non-FM-related purpose. my formation's basically a 4-2-1-3 in FM. the only thing of note is i spent 6 months retraining Andrea Poli to play as a right wingback.

been using this squad for 2 seasons straight, haven't bought/sold anyone for the past 3 transfer windows except for Totti/Pizarro retiring. won champions league 2x in a row and humiliated all the foreign big teams: Barca, City, Arsenal, United, Bayern, and Dortmund (haven't played Liverpool, Spurs, Chelsea, or RM yet). currently 100% league record, 26-0-0 in Serie A 2014/15

Branescu should be your starting keeper by now. i had Stekelenburg who was amazing, but i still sold him after the 2nd season so i could develop Branescu quicker

totally worth it. Branescu progressed much faster with more and more playing time. this is him in 2014-15 (only his second season as a senior team player). he's already surpassed the levels of Szesczesny and De Gea

You play Younes Belhanda as a Wing back?

Yes, he is still developing in his new role though, but coming along nicely. The guy has great pace, his crossing skills are not bad, reads the game well. So as a wingback moving into a forward position I figure it allows him more time to see the game a little clearer and hopefully be more dangerous. His stats below are quite promising.

younesy.jpg

Besides, if Wenger could do it with Cole, I cannot see why I cannot transform Younes :D

Jamaal Lascelles :cool:. Could I see a screenshot of him please if possible telV7? Thanks.

jamaalj.jpg

He may not look like much, but I am quite happy with him, he went through a rough patch and was down to about two stars. I knew it was my fault so I have been on the resurrection trail with Jamaal. He is coming good, and is performing quite well. Is very much part of the first team now, but not as a starter needs some more work yet.

Branescu should be your starting keeper by now.

Tim Howard is holding down the number one spot still. I am aiming to give him a few more starts this season in the Premier League. Tim though, I have a feeling, will want to play another couple of seasons yet. So the young fellow, will need to either force his way in or Howard needs to begin to fail miserably.

Hes amazing. Tbh, for me hes a bit like RVP for Arsenal in real life. Unfortunately he only played about 35-40 games a season for me because he can get a few injuries.

Ended up signing him myself in the previous seasons January transfer window and finished the 1st season with 11 goals in 16 games.

So far this season he's scored 22 in 25 games. One hell of a player.

Didn't have a very good first season winning only the Copa del Rey. This is the first time I've tried this tactic so hopefully with a few tweaks in the next couple of seasons trophies will start to come.

Broadhead is a regen who appeared when I loaded the MLS.

Note this probably isn't my best team, but it was the team who won the 2014 Champions League final.

Subs were:

ter Stegen

Savic

Kompany (he got demoted for too many own goals)

Barry

Douglas Costa

Milner

Dzeko (Amazing Fletcher turned out slightly better than Edin in my game)

Intriguing how many Truro City managers are in here, and how different our squads are!

Truro City, BSP, December 2013

4-1-2-1-2, Control, short passing

GK: Josh Wagenaar (free)

RB: Adam Hunter (free)

RCB: Jon Lines (youth)

LCB: Rob Atkinson © (free)

LB: Martin John (free)

DM: Agustin Battipiedi (free)

RCM: Darren Potter (free)

LCM: Ellis Martin (free)

AM: Luke Mulholland (Minnesota All-Stars)

RST: Wayne Phillips (youth)

LST: Martin Grehan (free)

I have a very young team this year, having abandoned almost all the players that got me promoted from Blue Square South two seasons ago to give our youth crop experience (two other homegrown 17 year olds are in the squad). We regularly dominate possession during games and have the best defence in the league but aren't very good at making CCCs, so we tend either to win 1-0/2-0 or get sucker-punched on the break. As with last season, we're comfortably playoff-quality but lack the firepower to challenge for the title due to our reputation. This season, I'm just hoping to consolidate and sell Lines (18, with Championship potential) to improve our finances and bring in a quality striker.

Lascelles looks mint. Probably the best I've seen him progress.

when i played as forest his attributes looked rubbish and never really improved much but he still played consistently very well in the premier league.

largely the XI that got me promoted in my first season, with a new pair of wide defenders, won the BSN scoring 80 goals, while my defense was rubbish, hopefully better wide defense will sort that part out

i made my manager Russian, so i try to buy predominantly Russian players, even if it means paying out of my arse. Dzagoev costed me €17m and Akinfeev cost me €25m in a 4-year monthly installment plan. everyone else i got on pretty good deals. Cardozo i got for €9m :D. both him and Huntelaar have 20 for finishing. and i'm working up Fabio Borini with a specific training schedule to become my next 20/20 finisher

Akinfeev

Anyukov Howedes Papadopoulos Escudero

Dzagoev Jones Kenia Holtby

Cardozo Huntelaar

notable bench players: Carlos Zambrano, Joel Matip, Arne Friedrich, Pinga, Marko Marin, Fabio Borini

i have one of the best defenses in Europe

With Newcastle and just started 2015 - 2016 season. Very happy with my squad at the moment and here's my best 11, though I have very good players on the bench with excellent cover in all positions.

4 - 3 - 1 - 2, Short passing, high tempo!

GK - Ospina - Great goalie, aquired on a free

LB - Santon - Developed into a cracking player, just rejected a Madrid bid of 17mil

CB - Papadopolous - Bought for 13mil and is a real aggresive Vidic type player

CB - Collo - Aging a bit now and I may have better players on the bench, but he's my captain...!

RB - Walker - Think I payed 17mil for him last season, boy was he worth it.

CM (DLP - S) - Witsel - Got him for just 5mil, was pretty chuffed with that signing.

CM (DLP - D) - Cabaye - Heart and soul of the team, like to play him in a Carrickesque type role.

CM (BWM - S) - Barkley - Not a cheap buy at 16mil but he's put in some super performances and is English, so worth the money.

AM - Willian - New Aquisition this season, fantastic start thus far and has just slotted right into the team.

CF - Castaignos - Got him on loan from Inter in my second season then bought him for 4mil. Not a prolific scorer but gets bundles of assists. Just keeps getting better and better.

CF (Poa) - Sturridge - A first season loanee, 24 goals in that season so bought him for 4mil. This lad, just... keeps... on... scoring.

Notable subs:

GK - Krul - Strong backup keeper. Classed as trained at club so he's going nowhere.

FB - Pieters - Perfect for when I need a more defensive minded FB

CB - Bazan - Wonderkid and already becomming a star.

CB - Kelly - Strong and good in the air.

CM - Delph - Don't really see him having a future at my club but don't won't to sell my English players.

CM - Fer - Puts in some good performances and is a rotation option as BWM with Barkley

AM - Gaston Ramirez - Just a great all rounder, would really reccommend him to managers a couple of seasons into a save.

AM - G Dos Santos - Scores some vital goals but can get a little over confident.

CF - Welbeck - Great player to have for when Sturridge is injured or jaded.

Have lots of great youth prospects i've been snapping up as well. As I said, very happy with this team and thanks to my improved youth system I can't see me having to make too many 'Big' signings in the future.

Just starting my second season with Brighton 12/13. Won promotion to the premier league via the play-offs. My starting eleven for the new season is:

GK: Joe Lewis

RB: Sander Keller

CB: Matthew Upson

CB: Glenn Loovens

DM: Eric Djemba-Djemba

CM: David Beckham

CM: Luigi Bruins

ST: Marvin Sordell

ST: Michael Owen

ST: Jordan Rhodes

Having been given little transfer funds and a very small wage budget i have gone for the wise heads with a couple of kids thrown in. I think i might break the record for the least points gained in a season.
