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

Recommended Posts

Finished my second season by going back to back in the prem. Also won the community shield but lost both domestic cup finals and in the semi's of the champs league to Barca.

Ins: Reus 29.5m (Release clause)

Hughes came after spending the last season on loan at Derby

Suso & Borni coming back also addded to my squad depth

Outs: Skrtel, Aspas and Coates for 14m

My squad and stats

First half of the year was marred by injuries and indifferent form. Sturridge tore something and missed three months, when he came back he'd lost a bunch of physical stats and just wasn't as good as the prior season. Sterling too suffered from inconsistency while Reus was plain rubbish the whole season, I'll give him another season to settle but if he's as bad next season I'll probably have to sell him, my bias towards him from FIFA clouded my judgement cause I REALLY REALLY wanted him. Suso and Alberto dominated the cups but it's hard to give all three, them and coutinho, games in their preferred position of AMC, might have to sell one of them but I have a soft spot for all three. Gerrard is on the decline and got bumped from my strongest 11, with Hendo and Allen both preferred in the big games. No Gerrard also meant that Agger took penalties, giving him a nice amount of goals for the season. Suarez came second in the EPL golden boot and won the Players Player of the Year for the second year running however went through a massive slump of no goals in 10 hours and only after a stern talking too started to score again. Beat PSG and Shaktar before falling to Barca in OT at camp Nou, Got dominated and probably should have lost in normal time. My Champs League run affected my two cup finals, my players went in a little on the low on the condition side of things or I had to rotate some of my better players out and save them. Lost 2-1 to southhampton and 2-0 to Arsenal. Also forgot to mention that Reina won the golden glove and was chosen over Mignolet after Mignolet suffered a preseason injury which delayed his start to the season.

Sinclair, Wilson, and Rossiter are all coming along nicely aswell. Wilson was my pet project this year getting the most sub appearances but next year Rossiter will be part of the first team and start all cup games whilst Sinclair will be eased in, especially if i do decide to sell Borini. Unfortunately the other two I was looking to develop were Ilori and Ibe but both got injured on loan and they may not make it anymore, both pretty serious (3+ month injuries).

My main offseason target is a RB, one of Clyne or Danilo, leaning towards Danilo but I'll see their fee/wages first. Will also be getting a new Ass Man (any suggestions?) and upgrading a couple of coaches. Will also sell one of Reina (more likely) and Mignolet to bring in a quality young keeper. Courtois would be the drem but seems unlikely, Ter Stegen was a target but got snapped up by Barca. Barca also took Peruzzi who I wanted and Doria who everyone seems to buy.

Finished the 2022/23 season

Won the league again ;P Spurs relegated:D

Slighty dissapointed with Cerri's strike partners (Sinclair was out for 3 months Julien really struggled to put chances away) so Geerts got to have a decent number of games and did reasonably well. Stoke must have come into some money as they bid 75m for him at the end of the season.

So was counting on vice-captain Cerri to perform and he didn't disappoint banging in 53 in 49 games. He has become my first player to pass 300 goals for me with 307 in 325 appearances.

However the new star of the team in 18 year old Englishman Wayne Fenwick who has managed to push the mighty Will Hughes down to second choice AMC.

Thanks Dan Selby, i use the attacking 442 as my 2nd tactic funnily enough. Ill go for Ince on a Free - he looks worth it.

The I also tried a flat 433 (with a treq.... poacher and a false9, ) in preseason but started poorly so i need to tweak it as it was great against poorer teams at home but didnt seam great away.

My first big signing. (jan 2nd season).

I'll start rotating him with Agger right away.

Paid a total of 45 mil for him, but only 15 upfront, the rest in bonuses and installments.

I've just entered January of the 3rd season, i've tweaked my instructions slightly and currently on a 12 game win and clean sheet run in all competitions. 17 games into the league season and conceded just 7 goals! Much better performances at the back but my biggest problem now is getting Suarez (4 in 17) and Sturridge (2 in 18) to score. I really can't recommend Tom Ince enough, he's been immense for me.

This game could be the first time in FM where I have had both top goal scorer and top assister. Suarez and Sterling you beauties!

Tip for anyone who uses Sturrige as an IF : Teach him "Cut inside".

Finally finished first season. Won the league in a canter, which was weird coz I was only 3 or 6 points ahead for most of the season.

These are the player stats, SAS were all excellent for me and Coutinho really played well too.

The other cups were nothing to write about got knocked out in the 4th round in both.

Can someone please tell me how to get the best out of Liverpool as I keep downloading loads of different tactics that everyone seems to do well with but for some reason they don't do well for me and I keep losing so any help is much appreciated thanks.

Basically just looked for coaches who would give me at least 4 stars in each catergory. I also like to get in ex-players to fill in roles. I try to get an assman with good tactical knowledge and motivational skills.

I need a tactic guys. I've started 3x this week, every time with new tactics and structures etc. and every time I'm sacked before christmas. What am I doing wrong?

I've tried 4-2-3-1, 4-3-3, 4-4-2, 3-5-2, 4-3-1-2 and all of them with different mentalities. Can anyone recommend a tactic or something for me?

Suarez is 12-3-4, Sturridge is 15-3-0, Aspas 7(7)-4-1, Coutinho 15-1-2, Gerrard 14-3-0.

As you can see I'm having major trouble scoring in every save so far, hence me getting the sack all the time. Any tips are appreciated!

Ok, I'm starting to get really annoyed with the English FA. I've won the EPL 4 times in the last 5 years, CL twice and another 15 or so cups, even managed to get 3rd place with the US at the World Cup, but when I apply for the England job I'm told I have no chance and my application smells of desperation!! I'm ranked 18 in the greatest mangers of all time FFS!!! I could understand that don't want to give it to a foreigner, if not for the fact they are on to their 3rd foreign born coach since I started the game! Current manger is the former Galatasaray manager, he was sacked after coming 7th last season so was a shoe in for the England job! Ok, rant over.

On a side note, about to start season 6 with Ward-Prowse offically being my captain. Hope he can lead us to glory for the next 10 years or so!

Seriously dumbfounded on how good Sterling is in this game. What a season he is having so far.

Currently 24-0-0 95-13 at the moment. Doesn't look like we'll be giving up the title anytime soon.

I've never been too keen on ter Stegen. Handling, one on ones and reflexes all 15 or below.

Always had good experiences with Ter Stegen, but I always used to buy Ron Robert Zieler.

Cheers guys, with the signings of Ter Stegen, Peruzzi and Sandro, my first bid was accepted, so i probs could have gone lower!

I get the hesitancy with Ter Stegen, but I usually get is handling up, plus he has 19 determination and perfectionist personality, great tutor!

Really struggled to try and sell Hendo and Allen though.

Personally i would keep Hendo as he's versatile and can fill a hole when needed. He's hardly ever injured and very consistent too.

Yeah I thought about that, but his contract end this season and he wants 72K/week. Seems a bit much for back up, when I'd rather use Rossiter or Chirivella.

That said, the lack of offers for him may have made up my mind ha

Personally, I would keep him. I have all throughout the saves I've had on any version where Hendo was at the club and he was superb.

Here he is for me in April 2015, tutored by Gerrard for half a season:

So as a little experiment for this save, I decided to take up the Sammarinese nationality as my main nationality, to see if I can get some players from that nation and turn them into world class players.

3cddad966bda8b773c1cc29a86e3ac23.pngThis is the first Sammarinese player I've gotten in this intake and he may look average, but he's probably the best player in the nation. :lol:

Yep. Right side as a Defensive Winger/Support. :)

Just sold Lucas for 29 million in Jan season 3. Im happy with that!

Also sold Honda for 3.4mil

Considered selling Sturridge as he's been injured constantly and i dont feel we need him as much now.
