FM15 : Liverpool FC - Re-rebuilding, all over again

Recommended Posts

Defending is too good IMO, we went from 50 goals a season against to 18 using the exact same tactic and players.

Sturridge has just got his 8th Injury for the season, all minor of cause. I am in March!

You can see how SI struggle. One minute teams are scoring too much, then too little - Conceding too much, not conceding enough. SI will never find a "balance" as its dependent on tactics, players morale, form, conditions etc...

Finished my 1st season with 4th PRM, I didn't expect to win any cup since I disabled 1st transfer and still starting to get better at the game. This is my 2nd season so far:

In:

Jack Wilshere (30 mils)

Nathan Clyne (10 mils)

Lucas Romero (7 mils - previous winter transfer)

Balata (5 mils - previous winter transfer)

Out:

Glen Johnson (Free - impossible to sell him)

Borini (8 mils)

Won 3 matches with 3 early red cards, 1 for Lucas, 1 for Romero, 1 for Moreno. The only lost was to Man City 2-3, expect to lift PRM this season, will update later.

Started a Liverpool save after seeing their squad after the update, just appealed to me.

Bought in quite a few youngsters, sold a few of the older players, don't have prices as I'm at work:

IN

Butland

Balanta

Gaya

Lucas Romero

Mitrovic

OUT

Jones

Enrique

Allen

Lucas Leiva

Borini

Lambert (loan)

(think I've missed someone out)

Also renewed Johnson's contract, can get some money for him at the end of the year then as I ran out of transfer money after all that. Recalled Origi from loan too, he's been fantastic so far as a backup False 9 to Sturridge, as well as an IF if I've been chasing a goal.

Only 3 league games played so far, 2-1 win vs Everton (h), 1-1 draw to Hull (a) and a 3-0 win vs Burnley (h).

Champions League group looks okay, Barcelona, Liverpool, Basel and Steau Bucharest. Got Fulham away in the League Cup.

Usual injury bug struck hard in pre-season though, had Balotelli, Mitrovic, Origi was on holiday for most of it??, Coutinho, Lallana and Sterling all missed big chunks of it which forced me to use some of the youngsters in pre-season and leave practically a half match fit squad for when the season started, Rossiter was very good in pre-season though, as well as Jordan Ibe. Will keep them around until Jan and develop them myself for a bit before sending them on loan for 6 months for some first team football. Quite impressed with the amount of decent potential players in the u21's and u18's.

Training and youth facilities will both be upgraded in the summer.

Completely changed all the staff, think I may have only kept Renshaw as u18's physio.

Promising start :)

Recalled him using editor as this can't be done in game for me.

I have a custom database (LFCMarshall from FM-Base) and was an option in game for me, I did wonder if it was due to this as I hadn't seen anyone else recall him.

Yeah hopefully. Have you reported it to SI? In the feedback thread for the update people pointing out the injuries has gotten a lot of stick from mods and others that the injuries are normal and so on.

Yeah, I have training on average/medium (team cohesion) and still 9 injuries to first team players in a month. That's not normal.

End of Season 1 Review

Competitions Won.

English Premier League

English FA Cup

Capital One Cup

Season Notes

- Won EPL by 6 points as Chelsea lost their last 2 games to give up the race.

- Only Conceded a total of 23 goals in our 38 EPL games.

- Sturridge top Goal Scorer with 19 goals in 22 EPL Games

- Clyne was a gun at RB, now valued at $21 million.

- Stones is going to be a great player, already looking first team with potential to reach Elite level.

- Sterling, Henderson, Gerrard, Moreno, Sakho, Clyne, Stones, Markovic, Romero and Mignolet were the best players all year round, consistent performers.

- Struggled in Europe, we may be kings of England, but we got dominated quite easily against big European clubs, we got knocked first elimination round in ECC.

- Despite injuries galore early on, we did well, and the last 1/4 was near injury free.

With $52 Million to spend, the likely departure of Levia and Skrtel means we have some money to place with, Balotelli was on a fine line all season and will also be looking to move him on, if the price is right.

With the return of Origi, it is unlikely I will need another stiker, in fact I am happy with squad at the moment and have no area of concern. Will post squad at start of season 2.

I did that too as its easier to make a few player changes at the start of the game. I gave a couple of the youth players PA increases to see if I can develop them into First team players

Ilori, Chirivella, Ibe, Wilson, Sinclair IRL have the potential to be first team players but not really in game. I didn't touch any CA stats as I want to push them to see if them can reach there PA

I was going to say that, I posted about the injuries in the feedback thread and just got shot down straight away. Like they don't even want to acknowledge it, there's obviously been a change since patch because of the amount of people complaining

In the middle of Dec of season 1 on a new save since the update.

Sitting 4th at the moment but have 1 game in hand on everton in 3rd. I'm 7 points behind City in the League after 2 draws in a row.

went back to playing a 433 with AMR & AML instead of my AML and F9 behind a poacher tactic due to us having good quality wide players and to help develop IBE & Wilson more.

Got PSG in the CL knockout stages which will be tough. just want to achieve the board target of the QTRS in the CL

spent 58m in the summer bringing in some young talent

Timo Horn 6.75m

Mattio Darmain 7m

Balanta 12m

Gaya 13.75m

Vallejo 1m

Verratti 7.5m

Ruben Neves - Loan deal

Emmanual Mammama - Loan deal

I will be looking to tie up both loans into transfers at the end of the season

Out

Johnson, Skrtel, Toure, Enrique, Allen, Borini which brought in 50m

Does anyone play Football Manager in luxury such as this?

RlIaMTRh.jpg

34" Wide screen and a 27" on the side, so nice to watch Liverpool kick butt on it..

12 games in and I am 10 win and 2 draws.

Not sure if it is a bug or not, but when you get youth intake, search all EPL and Championship clubs manually, anyone that looks like they are going to be good, sign them ASAP (on that day), you pay probably $500k for the better ones, I landed 5-6 world class potential players out of 10 or so I signed, spent no more than $5-6mil and now have steady youth to come through.

Yeah, and it's getting annoying. Just got 4 injuries in one match. Usually it's about 1-2 inj/game. On another save post-patch I had 9 injuries to first XI in one month. Was not like this before the patch...

I finished first and done ok in ECC first season, got around $60mil, then mid season 2 they increased that to some insane $150mil as I was going so well.

I have a 40" and a 48" next to it and play from the couch now thats luxury

I like resolution over size, 34" at 3440X1440 is a nice size.

Season 2 going well, Chelsea is only real threat. No major signings this season, just a lot of youth, nearly a full team with extra's of them.

Ivory Coast has so much talent, 3 class players picked up, work permits got rejected but transfer went through, have to loan them out for years. Be worth it.

What is best country to send out on loan for work permits?

This is stupid.

Every first team player is harping at me for a new contract when they have 3-4 years remaining, every week my inbox is flooded with un happy players, I tell them no, you still have to much time remaining on your contract.

They go to media, then it is all down hill from there.

This is really getting on my nerves. I don't have a happy player at Liverpool because they all want double their usual salary and I won't do it just yet.

Edit: Why is there a massive difference in playing a team in regular EPL vs ECC?

Playing Chelsea in ECC and they are godlike, smashing me by 5 goals for the fun of it. In an EPL match, I usually win!

Don't think i have ever been so mad in my life..

Second leg of ECC match against Chelsea, they have a 3-1 lead.

I am 2 goals up early on, all game, 90 minutes pass and we have 2 minutes of extra time.

The clock passes 100 minutes? WHAT!!

101 minutes, Chelsea get penalty, score and win the tie.

There were no injuries or delayed time, the ref barracks for Chelsea obviously.

Replayed game, won 3-0 and off to ECC final.

I usually don't do this sort of thing, but, you know.. I was mad bro.

Although I would never condone reloading a save after a game, that is definitely a situation where I would have done the same. What on earth? :lol:

I feel guilty, but oh well.

Played ECC final against Barcelona, tight game, really even stats but a double from Sturridge got us over the line, 1-2..

Won EPL, ECC, FA and Capital Cup. Lost Community shield to Chelsea.

Chelsea were only threat all season, no one else got close to beating me. Funnily, Man United finished second though, they lost 2 games more than Chelsea however.

Kane leading scorer for me, with 19, Sturridge spent most of season injured, as per usual. Sterling had 16 assists and Can was highest rated 7.48 average.

Don't really need to sign anyone next season. Not sure what to do!!

Seriously, this game is annoying to the point of quitting nearly.

I am in November 2016, Sterling complaining now, he wants to Join R.Madrid to win trophies..

We won the EPL, ECC, FA and Capital Cup last season.

WHAT THE!!!!

Coutinho AND Markovic is now on the "I want to leave to win trophies" bandwagon..

What on earth?

I normally set my motivation and level of discipline to 20, stops a lot of the players complaining. You can normally make them back down as well.
