Season 2, Summer + August Update

Matches

Friendlies weren't much and we lost in the Community Shield.

But 3 wins out of 3 in the league is a great start.

League Table

Nothing interesting.

League Transfers

Big moves by our rivals, but I have faith in my squad.

Team Transfers

No big investments, and some back-up / tutors for free.

Fees look lower than what I paid, because of clauses.

Carl Czuczman

One for the future. Cheap.

Park Ji-Sung

Only for tutoring. Will not play.

Sebastian Rode

Back-up DM. Might turn into a good player.

Antonio Candreva

Good player, good tutor. Offers something different.

Didier Drogba

Wages are high, but I suspect he'll be important.

Aleksandar Mitrovic

I'm training him to lead the line once Suarez leaves.

Got tutored by his idol, Drogba, instant determination rise and PPMs.

Gino Peruzzi

Johnson is getting old. Not only younger, but already better.

Alex Sandro

A HUGE upgrade at left back. Already has 3 assists.

Some nice buys there, my Porto supporting friend IRL tells me Alex Sandro is the pick of their defenders. I tried to buy him in my game at the end of Season 1 only to find he'd gone elsewhere already :(

Start of second season. MC came in with £40m ( £33m upfront) for Suarez, should I sell? :rolleyes:

Think you need Suarez for the first season, as pointed out to me by Staf9. UNLESS you can get another player of that quality in the squad, otherwise we have no one. Sturridge is bit of a hit and miss sometimes, still taking so many long shots.

After 27 games I am top by 6 points from united. Won 6 games in a row beating united and arsenal in that run. United have lost 3 in a row now

17 point gap to 5th place so should bring CL football back to the club in the first season and hopefully keep this form going and bring the title

Being out of all cups is helping me as I can play a strong 11 every game and injuries aren't killing me

Next game away to stoke, winning 2-1 and again concede a late goal to draw the game!

Do you have to put 11 men on the goal line from the 85th minute!

Just started a save with my beloved Liverpool! Gone for a 5-3-2 formation with a AM, i turned transfers off first window as i think its only fair. My pre season results so far; Kiryat Shmona 3-1, M.Netanya 3-0, H.Haifa 2-1, Orlando Pirates 3-0. Still got 2 left. I have taken Ciprian Marica on trial, he was last at Schalke, he's a Romanian striker but i am unlikely to offer him a deal.

As things stand my starting team will look like; Mignolet, Johnson, Toure, Skrtel, Agger, Enrique, Lucas, Gerrard, Coutinho, Suarez, Sturridge.

Will update come January, Cheers.

Finished my first season last night, surprisingly winning the title at the last gameweek when Chelsea drew to Southampton. Plenty of ups and downs throughout the season as I was constantly changing my tactics from different forms of 352 to different forms of 451 and back to 352.

dibKwQ6.png?1

As I had transfer disabled I only signed Anthony Réveillère and had Honda coming in in January.

Suarez was included in the Premier League Team of The Year and also the winner FWA Footballer of The Year while Mignolet came in second for golden gloves, losing out to Lloris.

Currently slowing down for a moment and reviewing every parts of the team, just did a major overhaul of backroom staff and currently considering which tactic to use to have a rough idea of who I need and who I don't.

The only signings I made so far is ter Stegen ( because every formation needs a GK) and Timo Werner who is joining for free.

Still undecided whether to sell Suarez. :(

Delighted with the PL win. This was my 3rd start as it took time to get a tactic to work.

Now have to see if I can trim the squad players and get in the players to give us a chance in the CL

Loading up for a bit. Won my first game but then drew my second against Fulham (funnily enough, we're thrashing them irl). Then beat Preston in the league cup and now got Norwich for the 3rd game of the season. Sturridge got all 3 goals against Preston.

Sitting 3rd atm but Norwich are 4th. Got em home.

Couple of signings made quickly after the season ended

Ter Stegen

Veratti

Luke Shaw

Trying to sell off the deadwood now before making anymore first team buys

Sigh. 1-1.

19 shots, 10 on target, 8 off, 1 clear cut chance & 12 corners. Ridiculous.

My RBs are doing quite poorly. Scigilio had a bad game first half, bought on Reveillere, and he equally had a bad game. Need to work on that. Maybe Kolo can provide some reliability in this area.

Just beat Villa 3-1 away with my new 4-3-3. Villa got a man sent off after 8 mins, they had 1 shot all game and scored. Joe Allen had 170+ passes attempted and 166 completed, never seen that many before

How are people getting the best of Suarez? I have him playing up front either as a false 9 or a Treq and he just does not get involved whatsoever. I had both wingers (amr/l) as IF (a) to provide support and he can drop off and play them in or score himself. Got my midfield set up as a 3 AP(A), DLP (s) and cm(D)

Cannot get him scoring at all

He now wants a new deal at 175k a week so I may have to sell him

Managed to win the league on the last day of the season with a hard fought away win at Spurs, have set about filling the under 18s with talent as the intake of youth was less than acceptable.

I've got him playing as a false nine with better results upto now.

I have no idea how to set up away to bigger teams without impacting on my play going forward so I went to City and stuck with my normal tactics and got stuffed 4-0, 2 goals from corners and a penalty

Not sure if it's possible to sell them if it's their first season, but loan, perhaps you can. Maybe nobody wants him?

Anyone tried a save where you just play your youngsters such as ine, sterling, wisdom etc instead of the senior players. I remember doing it on fm 13 and not doing to bad

I play my (competent) youngsters in every save. Rossiter, Sterling and Chirivella are playing somewhat regularly (Sterling is playing more games than anybody else at AMR, although my best side has Moses there and Sturridge at AML, but Sturridge is injured).

Chirivella has scored three goals this season and Rossiter is averaging about 7 for match rating. Ibe would get games too, but he's on loan (last I looked he was doing well too, three goals in his last five matches).

EDIT: The rest of our decent youngsters are all out on loan too.

I send wisdom and ilori on loan whilst ibe sterling and alberto are playing in reserve and play around 5-10 matches in my first season plus some subs in .. IM not sure if 10 matches at the first season is optimal???

Can't stand Mignolet's performance anymore, Ter Stegen or Akinfeev? Need advices please.

Ter Stegen was a bit butter-handed while AI playing him in fm13, don't know if it has been changed in 14?

Desperate for a Right Back, start of the second season and have turned down a £10.5 million bid from Arsenal for Kelly as he is my back up to Johnson and now he's injured for 3 months. I'd prefer a young up and coming player but I'll happily settle for a veteran at the moment.

I'f most definitely sell reina for that.

@sparky, Look no further than dennis diekmeier, i normally buy him first thing season 1 for between 1.5-3m and he never fails to perform for me.

Haven't got this yet but will probably be purchasing it in the next few days. Just wondering what kind of funds it is possible to amass in the first transfer window? Obviously the starting budget isn't huge but I imagine the likes of Skrtel, Enrique, Johnson and Lucas could all be sold for a fair amount. I'm thinking of trying to play out a scenario in which I work based on the FSG philosophy but to the extreme, with a team of players all under the age of 24 (obviously with a few exceptions as I doubt it would be remotely possible to get a team of high quality players in that age bracket right away).

Possibly something like this. I have no idea if any of these players are good in this game or have the potential to become top quality, but it's just an 11 that I could think of from the top of my head that might be attainable by the second season.

Leno

Papadopoulus I.Martinez Sakho

Danilo Gonalons Herrera Alex Sandro

Coutinho

Benteke Muriel

Also wondering if they've improved Suso this year? Always been a bit gutted by the fact that he never seems to turn out that good on previous FMs.

Do you guys sell or keep reina when he returns? Napoli are offering me 9m for him

I sold him for £10m straight away. He's on too high wages etc for me, want to sign a better keeper in season 2, if I make it that far!

Herrera can be gotten for £13.5m in the first preseason. Alex Sandro for about £12 to £15m ish I think. Not sure about the rest but Benteke is valued near £19m at the start of the game.

You can sell Johnson for £25m, straight cash straightaway to Arsenal. Skrtel is a bit hit and miss, Sevilla came for him for £10m at the start. People have been selling Lucas for about £40m, but I like to keep him.

Not sure on Suso, while he's rated highly by the staff, he starts off on loan, but people have used the editor to add a recall option for him, something you could look at.

Sigh. Just got thrashed 4-1 at home against Spurs. 4 games in and 5 points. To make it worse, I've now lost Coutinho for 5-6 months with a broken leg from that match. Great. There goes my season and probably this save. Maybe it can be salvaged with Suarez coming back after one game....but next game is against UTD.

Oh and Jones is my GK since Mignolet is out for a month.

Drew 1-1 with them but at a high cost. Gerrard and Lacazette both out for 2-3 months.

Job security is now insecure as I'm 11th.

Pretty cool that you can talk to managers that you've loaned players to about the player not getting enough football! This was a much needed feature imo, glad they put it in.

This is what I managed to generate on a test save, a lot of it is in installments and Suarez's sale can be added for about 50m at least but I had trouble with deas falling through. Perhaps you could raise even more but that's what I found worked on that save.

Also that transfer budget is a little lower than it should be as I forgot to negotiate for the raised percentage of transfer income that you can get after day one.

Seeing so many people winning/challenging for league I must admit I jealous, what tactics are you all playing? I have been fired once but since it's a network game we play the one chance rule, where if you get fired its your choice if you just want to add a new manager, which I'm not proud of but I did. I then picked up some form only to lose it all. My last 5 games of teh season I lost 4, and the board called me in for another crisis talk. If I don't pick up 10 points from the first 5 games I'm sacked for the second time :(. Need some inspiration
