FM14: Should I buy or sell?

Recommended Posts

That is quite possibly the most ridiculous comment I've heard, trying to persuade someone that Ravel 'I have the professionalism of a brick and won't be tutored by anyone' Morrison is even in contention for a place against Quintero! Plus - due to his attitude, I have already got rid (thankfully)

And this is quite possibly the most close-minded response I've read on here. Morrison is class, his fourteen goals in twenty games (for me) is proof of that, not to mention he just won European Golden Boy.

I've just turned down a £16,000,000 bid from Liverpool for him. He's made great progress for me, you just need to play him on the regular.

Having read back my comment it was perhaps a little strong - so apologies for that - however I still stand by my point that Morrison is not a patch on Quintero and will never achieve his potential given his awful professionalism. Shame as he has been our best player IRL this season (and should probably get some kind of attributes boost in the data update in Feb (probably to his hidden attributes))

he have very high ambition so should be able to reach his potential on that basis

I took it the wrong way mate, all good. He is an ambitious player, and is playing out of his skin right now. From what I've heard about Morrison lately is he has really settled himself down and is being being looked after by the senior members in the squad. Best move by Fergie and Sam was to get him out of Manchester and away from the group of friends. I really do hope he fulfils his early potential, both for West Ham and himself.

You're right though, he has nothing on Quintero, but he is a cost effective player, and basically does the same job. And he's English.

I personally would go for it based on how much his stats have decreased following his injury.

I say don't sell him. His english and seems like he is performing well for you. Since his value is £30m you might get similar bids in the future, and I can only assume he'll continue to play well. Doesn't look like you need to sell for financial reasons either concidering your transfer budget.

With that said though, attribute wise he isn't very impressive. So if you have any promising talents you concider buying I would perhaps recommend selling.

Try and get Valdes on trial, and then he will sign a contract for around 60k per week.

It worked for me, though I only had Adrian to replace. You should be more than happy with Lloris, but if you need the money, take it and run.

I'd grab him for that price, but only if there aren't any dire needs in your squad to fill.

Should I buy Will Hughes or James Ward-Prowse?

I don't know enough about James Ward-Prowse, so I'll say Will Hughes.

I have both in my Chelsea save and both perform at a very similar level to one another with very little to chose from. Both play very well as a deep lying playmaker or box to box midfielders.

I've got them both on my current Newcastle save.

Ward-Prowse

Hughes

nkkk.png

Hughes cost me just over £8 million in first season, but had to offer Southampton £18.75 million for Ward-Prowse in summer window at start of the third season. There's not a lot to pick between them really, but my staff seem to think Ward-Prowse might have slightly more potential, so he might be the slightly better target.

Don't buy.

I've had him on two different saves in this game, in total have had him for 6 seasons, and no matter what role I played him in or how successful my team was he just never performed well enough to justify the wage he was on.

Can you suggest anyone else? I have little to no money right now, and need midfield enforcements for next season.

I'd say buy, especially if you get him for free. I bought him before the third season for my Spurs. The first season he was only a back-up/rotation player, but now for his second season wih us I've given him more playing time and he already has 6 assists in 9 matches as a DMs or an MC B2B. He is quite yellow/red card prone, though.

I say you gamble on him. If he under performs after a couple of seasons, you'll make the wages back on selling him on. Would imagine you'd get a good bit of cash for him after a few seasons.

That's a tough one. I'd almost certainly say yes in most cases, but if you're selling almost all of your defense for him, I'd say you have more pressing concerns to fill before getting another striker.

Should I sell this guy?

665y.png

Bayern have just come in 1st day of 2021 Jan transfer window with an upfront offer of £30.5m. His contract ends in 18 months time but he is simply amazing. 7 goals in 22 games is priceless from a CB and I'm currently pushing Bayern for the title in my journeyman save career, they're one point ahead of me during the winter break. Projected to end season with £9m in the black so this could help but in terms of replacements there are nothing about so would have to rely on a couple of good youth prospects till end of the season :/

Tempted to see if they're willing to negotiate and see if I can push them towards the £40m mark.

Why sell? You're selling to one of your main rivals, for not that much money, and he looks pretty damn awesome. I'd definitely be keeping him, and offering him a new contract ASAP.

I wouldn't accept anything less than £45,000,000 + a Snickers. It's your direct rival, would you expect them to sell you players so cheap?

He's not interested in a new contract after I turned down the original offer so my hand is forced :( Dortmund have now offered £35.5m so I've accepted, will only go to Bayern though if they offer £40m+

Then make him interested. Play some soothing jazz, open a nice bottle of wine and convince him to stay.

Player's Value: £1.5m/£800k

Offer: End of contract (Free)

Both are available on a free and De Sanctis is retiring in a couple months. Can't really decide between them both, only difference is Ruffier wanted £20k less a week, and I am not sure if Diego Alves is worth the extra wages.

Ruffier would just edge it for me TY. Wouldn't you prefer Bardi? Or are Inter (or wherever he plays) reluctant to let him leave?

I have just holidayed from start to January 2015 in hope of finding a challenge. See Roma sacked there manager in March (sitting 14th) and took them over, haven't really looked at spending money on a GK. Currently I have no budget and there are other areas of the team that could use the cash at summer, so a free GK of this quality is perfect.

I think Yann Sommer becomes a free agent, or Mattia Perin.

Ruffier hands down, both of them are very similar and Ruffier will save you 20k in wages. Thats enough to bring in some quality in other areas of the team.
