FM14: Liverpool F.C Thread - This Year is our Year!

Recommended Posts

I'm having a disaster at the minute. Just been sacked after going 7 games unbeaten, I lost 4-1 to City and I promised the board a better result in the next game. I drew 0-0 with Sunderland Away and they gave me the axe.

That sounds a bit like a bug. How many points did you take from those 9 games?

Finished the first season, and a couple of bad results against hull and sunderland (both of whom were relegated) meant i dropped to 6th but i'm in the euro cup which was my main goal at the start of the season.

i've made a couple of new signings for the new season, Victor Valdes, Luke Shaw, Will Hughes (i actually signed him at the start but loaned him back to derby for the season) and Gabriel Barbosa. I've also found a top quality argentinian fullback who is only 15, but can't sign him because he can't get a work permit (didn't you used to be able to sign players even if they couldn't get a work permit, and loan them out? is that still possible?). He has 5 star potential, and at the moment is available for less than £1.5mil as he hasn't signed a pro contract yet so i'd love to sign him now if possible.

i've set my sights a little higher this year, wanting to get a top 4 finish and get into the champions league.

Great start to the thread. However, surely the title is an ironic joke? :D

Came in to ask the same. Are they never going to learn? :D

How are people getting on with developing sterling and ibe, im kean to see how they develop say 3/4 years on if anyone has any screenshots. As i am going to play the 5-3-2 formation and retrain them to play centrally, and want to see if theyd develop suitably to play there

thanks

just set up a link with genk, and tried again to sign him, this time he got the work permit, so the deal has gone through and he'll be joining me on his 18th birthday (there must be a similar rule to that in brazil where players can't move abroad until their 18th birthday). by the time he gets here he'll probably be good enough to go straight into the first team in place of glen johnson.

I got some 3rd season screenshots, i'll try to remember to post them this evening when i'm home.

Neither is really playing for me though. Sterling is on loan at Stoke (not really lighting it up) and i'm not even sure on Ibe. He's not on the first team radar. He's probably on loan.

Would say that people posting screenshots of young players a few years on is fairly irrelevant as everyone can develop a player in a different way.

Also, some of them have random stats.

Just finished my first pre-season.

All went well, apart from a 3-3 draw with Anderlecht, where we led 3-0 at half time.

Couldn't get a big team in a friendly, but morale is sky high.

Next up : Stoke.

As I started with transfers disabled, I only got some free transfers. Released some unimpressive reserve/youth players.

Franco Zuculini : Cover for Lucas. Young, might turn out good.

Anthony Reveillere : A good RB, as I don't have like for like replacement for Johnson.

Yossi Benayoun : Can play all across midfield and is a great tutor (model pro).

And, obviously, Honda will be joining in January.

He'll be rotating with Gerrard, whose stamina is really disappointing.

Squad I'll be using. I moved all promising players to the first team, so I can decide easier when and how much they play.

First victory of the season is one hard-fought. Still can't believe they had 14 shots on target.

Aspas' first goal for the club, after some Coutinho magic.

If i bought players in season 1 id get a backup to Mignolet since Jones is crap TBH Mignolet isnt good enough for 1st choice going by his stats & another striker if you play 2 apart from that happy with the squad

Need a replacement for Gerrard, lining up Verrati, Ward-Prowse & Pogba. Not sure what one to go for. Pogba probably not interested.

Gonna use the usual 4-2-3-1 no luck with the 5-3-2 maybe ill do better

Try a 4-3-3 (4-5-1), with a 1-2 midfield and wingers.

Started again last night, didn't want to get too attached to my save as i'm going to start again when the full game comes out (also i was struggling in second season down in 16th after 10 games).

I'm struggling on deciding on a formation, the last save i tried 3 at the back in a 3-2-2-1-2 formation with wingbacks, but was leaking too many goals and not creating enough good chances. i'm tempted to revert to 4-4-2 which has done me well in past versions of the game but it can be quite dull to watch and i've heard that 3 at the back can be done in fm14. Also, with Agger, Skrtel, Sakho, Toure, Kelly and Wisdom at the club it seems a waste to only use 2 of them. I'm also struggling to figure out how to use Coutinho as i'd maybe like to play him behind a lone striker or front 2 but suarez also looks to be a good fit for that position so i'd be interested to see how people are using the attacking players that liverpool have available to them.

and finally for now, what are peoples views on luis alberto? does he have a future? i personally don't like attacking players with low teamwork, and as creative as luis alberto is, his low teamwork seems to rule him out from my lineup. am i right about that? or should i overlook his low teamwork and find a place for him in the team?

Try something like this :

As for Alberto, a lack of teamwork/workrate can sometimes be a plus on a creative attacking player. He'll make more use of his flair if he's selfish, and will always be available for a pass after someone else wins the ball, because he doesn't close down as much.

Got Tottenham in the next round of the Capital One Cup (League Cup if you don't have real competition names installed).

Don't really like it, I was hoping for some easy teams all the way to the final.

This has been working exceptionally well for me so far:

Table after 30 games - first season:

Will probably look at buying a new left back and cover for Lucas & Mignolet for next season.

Try Nicola Leali For Keeper.

Luke Shaw for LB and Emre Can for DM..

3 young future stars.

Yeah, I was considering Luke Shaw. Enrique will probably continue as no.1 for now as he has been ridiculously good for me with 6 goals, 8 assists and an average rating of 7.96.

I will probably get Will Hughes and loan him back to Derby for a season as well, hopefully he can take over from Gerrard in a couple of years.

I loaded up the FM14 game but was disgusted with some of the player data that was "researched" so will wait until the editor is up and running since the hell will freeze over before any official work is done.

You only need to check "Data" forum to know that.

Oh well.. Looking forward on getting this on the road but will definately wait...

Back from international break, a close game. I think my fullbacks are too attacking, as Sunderland's wingers had a lot of time on the ball.

Another win takes take us top. I was worried this would be a rerun of the Sunderland match, as Villa play similarly, but I guess the fact this was at home made a difference.
