Starting a fresh now that the update his here

Been wanting to for weeks will have to start slowly though as I have assignments coming up but will soon be done for the whole summer

Happy to see an improvement on Emre Can, never played him much before but looking at some of the screen shots on here I don't actually know why

If you have all your first team players in a position injured and you're forced to play someone who's below average rating, 'cause he's all you have left, don't think to yourself: 'he's the last person that can get injured'...

The FM/Murphy's law will make sure he's injured a few minutes later.

Don't even care anymore.

Season 1 - Complete

CompetitionsPremier League: 3rd

Champions League: Semi Finals

FA Cup: Third Round

League Cup: Third Round

Finished 3rd in the league on 80 points (+51 GD) behind a storming Chelsea (99 points) and United.

Went 3-0 up at home against Barcelona in the CL Semi Final only to be humiliated 7-1 in the second leg.

Happy with our league performance, especially the defence considering its the weakest part of the team.

I had great success playing a 4-2-3-1 all season, with one of the CM's pushed back to CDM.

Coutinho and Sterling made the most assists in the league, 20 each.

TransfersFirst Window Closed

Ins:

Lucas Silva - £6.5m

Youri Tielemans - £9.5m

Giovani Dos Santos - £12.5m

Jack Butland - £3.5m

Marquinhos - £4.8m

Outs:

Joe Allen - £10m

Lucas Leiva - £7.5m

Fabio Borini - £7.5m

Iago Aspas - £4.5m

Jose Enrique - £4m

Kolo Toure - £20k

Loans..

Very pleased with my dealings, finishing the year with a net spend of just £3.3m. Giovani Dos Santos turned out to be a great signing, coming runner up in 'Signing of the Season'. Lucas Silva has also had a storming second half of the season, a very accomplished passer with a real eye for goal, including a hat-trick against Southampton and an overhead kick! Marquinhos and Butland have provided backup whilst Tielemans is one for the future.

I have no time for those which I sold. The only one who was getting game time under me was Allen, but by December his poor performances spelled out his fate for him.

Moving on.. Season 2

I have just arrived at my first fixture of the new campaign. I am hoping to progress but CL qualification is still satisfactory. I have made some pretty big changes to the squad with profit in mind, noticeably upfront. I am content with the balance of my squad, however I made find myself improving the defence in January.

Ins:

Bryan Oviedo - £1.7m

Benat - £1.4m

Jeronimo Ruilli - Free Transfer

Carlos Vela - £15m + £5m in installments

Danny Ings - 14m

Outs:

Mario Balotelli - £50m

Daniel Sturridge - £55m

Martin Skrtel - £4.6m

Luis Alberto - £2.9m

Andre Wisdom - £2.3m

Sebastian Coates - £725k

Steven Gerrard - Free

Glen Johnson - Free

Loans..

Oviedo will provide good cover down the left whilst Benat will be retrained as a regista as backup for Lucas Silva, who will comfortably take over the role from the departing Gerrard. Ruilli will provide more competition for the #1 shirt which will be up for grabs this year whilst Carlos Vela and Danny Ings are the new striker force, with Lambert retaining his role as 3rd striker.

I could not resist the money from the Balotelli and Sturrdige deals, I only planned to sell once in this window but as I got the offers, I went for it. Skrtel is one that I wanted off the wage bill, along with the not needed Alberto, Wisdom and Coates.

I am very happy with my wage budget. And will be looking to further reduce it with the sale of Lovren.

CSS_Matt - How do you play Lucas Silva? Straight DM? Looking at a new DM and he is one that is on my shortlist.

CSS_Matt - How do you play Lucas Silva? Straight DM? Looking at a new DM and he is one that is on my shortlist.

I am actually playing him as a Regista. I like the aggressiveness of the role & how he is a threat from outside the area.

In 11(2) appearances his stats are as follows.

- 4 Goals

- 2 Penalties (2)

- 1 Assist

- 1 POM

- 87% Passing

- 9.23 Tackles per Game

- 7.36 Average Rating

Going into the second season he is becoming even better. All round improvements.

I have my defence push up higher to compensate for the gap.

Just got POM in a 7-1 mauling of Spurs.

It is a little quiet in here but with the free time I currently have, I might liven this place up a little.

Although I have done my usual overhaul of the squad when I start a save, things are going just as well as before.

The one problem is, there are a lot of players who, in the early stages of the game, are asking for first team football that I can't possibly give to at all times.

I understand Adam Lallana because he's highly rated in the game and probably deserves said first team football because in the games he has played so far, he's been very decent

However, Dejan Lovren and Joe Allen came to me AFTER they underperformed in a 4-0 win against Crystal Palace about their lack of first team football and I'm really losing my patience with them.

I gave in and will be playing them throughout the next month to keep them happy and their value up, but come on, I'm only in October. :lol:

Just finished my 1st season. In the last few games I jumped from 5th to 2nd in the league and beat Man City in the Champions League although i must admit I had a very easy run! Man City was the hardest team.

Mario B sold to R.Madrid for £66m, Sakho in talks with Monaco about a £24m move. Got Sturridge to sign a new deal after his top scorer in the league award - 35 goals. Got request accepted at board level for increasing youth development, improve training facilities. I'm looking at building on developing my own players more and like to get the wage budget under £1.4m - currently £1.75m.

I may as well post a couple of screenshots to keep the thread going.

At the moment, I have only played seven league games, but we are doing exceptionally well. Won 7 games and the goals are spread across a lot of players.

8b1f2f9e4c5be1a1c5ab2fa1a6edf144.png

In the cups, we have been getting exceptionally draws. We have a Champions League group of Porto, Roma and Basel and in the Capital One Cup we have already beaten a League One side in Bristol City 4-0 with a young side, and will face a Championship side in Wolves in the next round.

1805bb5ecb66716d0c71283f6cf3aff2.png

Transfers wise, I'm really happy with what I've done. I have only bought players good enough for the first team and/or direct replacements for those I sold.

That's really unfortunate, Glenn. Depay should add something huge to your side in the upcoming season, he's amazing even at such a young age.

I'm currently struggling to keep everyone happy in my squad and have to rotate a lot of players. It's frustrating, but at least I can keep the squad at an at least decent level of fitness throughout.

Keep it up, you can only improve. :)

Martin Demichelis of all people ended a 12 game clean sheet streak in my game. Quite annoying, but we still won with absolute ease.

2ba1f9283120bc91819d58fc6672a76d.png

Sakho and Balanta as a centre back partnership is pretty special.

I currently have four players who are considered world class in the team; Coutinho, Sterling, Henderson and Sakho. Things are definitely looking up. :)

Review Season 2

15hilqe.jpg

Stats

23s7pcx.jpg

Trophy Haul

Premier League:2016

Happy with the season Depay no doubt was the best signing scoring over 30 goals from the left Sturridge was injury free as well got over 30 goals as well wont change much was gonna keep Mignolet but hes dropped to 2 stars ive sold him to Roma & signed Rulli as my 1st choice for season 3

Very well done, Glenn. Depay looks monstrous!

As for my tactic, I will just post the formation of it because I do a lot of changing around with roles and instructions depending if home or away.

For example, I mainly have this as my home tactic, but if Lallana is playing, I will change to Advanced Playmaker as he's much better in that role.

a1c20b3e825aa3d7a8785898d64f16a0.png

For games away against better sides, I have this tactic, but again, Lallana as an AP on the left wing position and Romero as a roaming playmaker in the DM position.

edit:

Balotelli is going to start my next game after this (got two assists also)

Coutinho is the second player to fulfil is potential already in this save. I'm not even half way into the season and he's rated five star. It indicates clearly who I should be building my team around.

Fantastic season 2016/17..

Won English Premier League

Won Club World Championship

Won European Champions Cup

Won European Super Cup

Won FA Cup

Won Capital One Cup

Won English Community Shield.

So won EVERYTHING!!!

Sturridge, Kenedy, Sterling and Origi all scored over 20 goals with Sturridge leading the pack on 29.

The same 4 players lead the average rating charts too, with only .01 separating them all. Sterling and Kenedy equal on 7.66.

Coutinho, Sterling, Kenedy with 20+ assists each, Coutinho leading on 32 and he played most games in midfield.

3 midfielders lead the passing ratings, Odegaard, Romero and Martin (regen), average age between those 3 is 19!! Very exciting future.

James Few, a Regen CB, is amazing, averaging 2 tackles per game more than anyone else.

Sakho, Stones, Clyne and Moreno were the most solid back 4 I had. Digne, Balanta were great also.

My midfield is packed, I do not know what to do! Henderson, Tielemans, Romero, Odegaard, Coutinho, Martin and Goretzka..

Do need another replacement for Glen Johnson, is Clyne any good?

clyne is good if you want to English option. Chambers is also a great buy at the start of season 2

if you want a quality fullback look at Darmain from Torino. can play LB as well as RB and only costs 6.5m top in season 1

Start of 2017/18 Season.

Not played a game as yet, however I dangled Markovic for $60mil, not really featuring to much in my plans I thought i'll see what clubs are willing to pay.

FCP came up with a $60mil bid, all up front, I took it, to good to turn down.
