Sold Sakho for £24M to Arsenal in January 2019.

already thinking of who needs to be sold and who I could buy

Hi everyone im looking to do a Liverpool save with an updated database until FM16 comes out.Has anyone got any suggestions for tactics to use with the new players we've got and the loss of Gerrard,Sterling and Ballotelli?

Also a lot of people seem to sell Joe Allen and Lucas on there saves but whenever ive looked at there coach reports they always say top premier players or in Joe Allens case potential to be.Are the sales just a personal thing with Allen because he's only average in real life or is there some other reason?

Its mainly because there is better options out there. In my Midfield I have Romero, Henderson (he is my cap and awesome at the moment) tielemans and Neves.

Hi, I have the updated database and in my 5th year. I can probably help you since I have practically the same starting 11 from my first season.

I played a 4-3-3 like this:

---------GK---------

----CB------CB-----

WBR ---DM-----WBL

----CM-----CM------

AMR-------------AML

---------ST----------

It worked great for me and it got me 3rd in the first season with only 3 losses and it won me the league in my second season. I've since changed to a 4-2-3-1 with an AMC instead of a DM and put the wing-backs into a full-back position to accommodate my attacking options better. My current lineup is:

------------ Regen GK ----------------

Clyne - Joe Gomez - Sakho - Moreno

-------Coutinho - Emre Can ----------

Ibe ------- Firmino ----------- Neymar (had to)

------------Sturridge------------------

As you can see, I pretty much am running the same Liverpool side as you have in real life with an addition of Neymar and a couple of other backup players. I've sold Allen (transfer request as he didn't enough game time for his liking), Balotelli (no use), Lovren (no use), Skrtel (age), Mignolet (regen keeper was way too good), Markovic (good offer), Ings (VERY good offer as he was brilliant for me until Spurs came in with 20 million), Origi (sad to have sold him but he had limited game time and wanted to go), Lallana (was just awful for me), Benteke (just didn't fit into the system and only scored 9 goals for me (4 of which in one game) after being a starter for most of the first season since Sturridge was injured a lot and then just the dead wood like Llori, Enrique, Alberto and Milner (was earning far too much compared to ability and game time).

I feel the 'Barcelona tactic' of 4-3-3 with a DM and wing-backs works great with Clyne and Moreno bombing up and down the wings with Can/Lucas in the holding position picking up the ball in between the CB's and starting up play. Coutinho also works well in the MC with Henderson. Ibe is someone who you should start immediately and he will turn out to be one of your key players. Firmino works great on the wing and Sturridge is a world-class striker if you can keep him fit. Benteke didn't work for me but you can tweak your tactics to make him better for you I think. It was only when I bought Neymar that I switched to 4-2-3-1 to keep Firmino in the starting lineup as a AMC.

Also, if you want to keep your squad as you have it at the start like I have, without signing too many players, make sure you give Flanagan, Rossiter, Ojo and Wisdom game time and don't replace them. They are all a part of my squad and are great backups. Harry Wilson and Jerome Sinclair are both out on loan as well so I have them in my back pocket.

A young fellow, by the name of Michael owen just popped up in the Arsenal youth intake, I offered him a contract opening day, not knowing how good he is exactly.

He ACCEPTED!!!

Had to pay a small fee (Not sure how this is calculated), but got him on a "Free"..

Turns out he is going to be quite a good player!!

He is a Striker, scored his first game too.

I'm just coming up to the end of the 2018 season, love my squad and only plan to tweak it a little over the next window. 6 games left, 2 points behind Chelsea. Chelsea are strong so it will be tough and I have Man Utd, Spurs and Everton next. Also in the Semi's for the Champions League - got to play Man Utd...

Inspired by recent events, I dug out FM15, which I haven't played for 6 months and started a Liverpool save. I had an inspired first season, and won the league with a game to spare. Gerrard scored to give us the fairytale win. He's been a beast in the DM position and I'll find it hard to replace him. Crashed out to PSG in the semi final of the Champo Cup. Lost to Man Utd in the FA cup. I just about managed to keep both Sturridge and Bala happy - they scored 20 goals each. Playing a 4-3-2-1 with a DM and wingers

Ins:

T Horn

Balanta

L Romero

Y Tielemans

D Klassen

Jesus Vallejo

Outs:

Allen

Borini

Now I need some full backs

I can't remember what they were exactly, but £400k a week rings a bell. Played for one season and sold for the same price ?

Building a tidy squad now. Added Carlos Fierro, Ricardo Rodriguez, Carlos, Lucas Silva. Sold Sturridge to Real Madrid for £41m

Really pisses me off that the chairman and fans blame me for Gerrad leaving for LA Galaxy, when he signed a contract before I even joined the club!

Why? One of the best strikers....scored over 30 goals per season for me, top premier league striker 4 times on the trot. Hes a must keep for me. I have had a £64m offer but turned it down.

So draining.

Last 2 opponents in ECC have been Barcelona and Man United. Flogged them both to reach the Semi Final, yay, those two teams before Semi is tough, I have Athletico so should be easier, you would think.

The $70mil on Pogba is already paying off, guy is just beast, my forwards love receiving his through balls, scoring has been no issue since he joined.

Ok after s sucessful first season with Liverpool doing the domestic treble im into my second season and im looking at selling Lovren and Benteke neither who i have been very impressed with can anyone suggest a young replacement for Lovren preferably English or should i just sell him and use Gomez or Wisdom as backups.

Benteke just doesnt seem to fit into my system and also seem to whine a lot when he isnt picked then when he is picked doesnt perform.He also seems to get a lot of niggling injuries.If anyone can suggest a decent replacement for him then i would be grateful or should i just use Jerome Sinclair even though it says he is only a good player for a League one side?

depends on how you want to go. promote from within or you can look to pick up the future stars of the game for big money.

for CB you can go for Balanta, Súle, Vallejo, Gimenez as young choices who can play straight away.

up front Lacazette or Barbosa would be great as they can play off the striker in the AMR/L position as well

Give Gomez a lot of game time. Him and Sakho have been my starting CB pair from day 1 to 2020 and they are unbeatable.

Michael Keane and Eric Dier can do a good job for you. Have been my two right-sided centrebacks for a decade. Just replaced Keane in 2025 and Dier prabably next summer.

They do both have Man U listed as there favorite club, i dont know if that bothers you.

I couldn' t keep both him and Balotelli happy. Balotelli is a beast for me anyway. Changed my formation since. playing a 4-3-3 with two false nines now. Got a decent squad.

Horn (Buttland)

Rodriguez (Moreno)

Jung (Hysaj)

Vallejo (Sule)

Balanta (Sakho)

Tielemans (Romero)

Odegaard (Can)

Sterling (Coutinho)

Balotelli (Unal)

Fierro (Origi)

Getting a few trophies with that lot.

What's going to annoy me is - when FM16 is released, I know SI will "injure" the Liverpool players who got injured in the past month or so IRL.

So you'll start the game with them injured for the season (Ings, Gomez), even though the game starts in June or July but they only got injured in September or October IRL.

I appreciate the need to be realistic, but having foresight isn't realistic. Would be nice to leave them alone.
