FM15: Should I buy or sell?

Recommended Posts

See my reply to someone else, except his was £34m which I thought was generous. £25m I would say is a fair offer, but depends again what squad you are building.

Is the HG and English value of JWP worth keeping? Personally I'd keep him at £25m for HG/English value and how long of a career he has left.

Thanks, he ended up rejecting Arsenal in the end due to wages! Decided to keep him as like you said HG/English plus he's been at the club all career.

You cant get them both??

Was that aimed at me? Due to spreading the costs over 48 months I can afford both, and it looks like Aston Villa are willing to pay £12M for Chris Gunter (No idea why!), which would cover the initial payment for both players.

I'm just wondering whether those figures seem a little excessive for a newly promoted Premiership team? I normally try to keep the spending down, as I still need additional cover elsewhere.

First a bit of background.

In my first season with Reading I got Kenedy on a season-long loan (no wages or fee paid throughout). He scored 27 goals playing as a False 9 and missed out on league top scorer by 2 goals as we romped to the title.

While we scored 124 goals, we conceded 57 and I feel that defensively we were a little weak and could do with some improvements over Hope Akpan, Jem Karacan, and Daniel Williams.

Ok a couple of players here I am looking to buy.

Buying/Selling: Buying

Player Name: Kenedy

Your Team: Reading FC

Buyer/Seller: Fluminense

Player's Value: £1.6M

Offer: £14.25M (£3.5M upfront, £10.75M over 48 months = £4.8M initial budget cost)

Transfer/Wage Budget: £20.5M/£120k excess

Patch: Latest

Season: Start of 15/16

Rational: Judging by his wage demands, he wants around £45k/week to sign, with both he and his agent receiving a hefty fee (£1M/£2M). However, the scouts and coaches rate him extremely highly and he did score 27 and make 14 on the way to winning the title with us. But do I want top sign him more for nostalgia? Is £14.25M too much?

Buying/Selling: Buying

Player Name: Gaston Gil Romero

Your Team: Reading FC

Buyer/Seller: Estudiantes

Player's Value: £2.8M

Offer: £7M (£1.8M upfront, £5.25M over 48 months = £2.5M initial budget cost)

Transfer/Wage Budget: £20.5M/£120k excess

Patch: Latest

Season: Start of 15/16

Rational: Judging by his wage demands, he is only asking for around £25k/week to sign, with he and his agent receiving reasonable fees (£500k/£1M). This guy seems highly rated, and has room to improve with the team during the coming years. I need defensive strength to take on the Premiership, but am unsure whether it is worth the gamble of quite large sums of money.

Gaston Gil Romero is very solid defensive midfield, if you need a destroyer type midfield, it is pretty much a "must get".

Kenedy is a good all-round striker/wide forward. If you need a first team ready striker, i would say go for it since he is not asking for some ridiculous wage, and he is definitely worth the money.

JWP isn't a world class player, nor does he have the potential to be one so I wouldn't say £34m is too low like Jean says above. Very generous offer.

eU5cVUM.png

I am not sure about the definition of world class player, but JWP definitely looked like a very good CM/CAM to me!

Keep in mind he was managed by Ai team, with a balanced personality and is not fully developed yet(154 CA), so he can be much better under human management.

Well, my point is PA is not the only rule to judge a player , just look at all those liverpool players, some of them have mediocre PA/CA but with world class like attributes, some researcher are definitely showing too much love on their research club players.

Peruzzi is my starting RB and attracted a lot of interest from bigger clubs. I don't want to sell him but he already complained that he wants to move to a bigger club.

Guessing you have him tied down for a couple more seasons yet? If so, and you also won promotion, then I'd keep him and give him a season in the prem first. His value will rise and so should the offers.

Yeah, JWP is a very good EPL player for a side like Southampton/Everton but for Chelsea? Man City? I don't think so, you'll always be looking for better than that at a top side. Maybe in the right tactic and setup, he will perform well and even excell, but even in that screenshot you have showed me... he doesn't look 'world class', nor does he have the potential to be.

I guess at top(and in full fat), he'll make a mighty rotation player, and a HG slot.

Buying/Selling: Buying

Player Name: Mario Götze OR Isco

Your Team: Manchester United

Season: Pre Season 2015/16

Money: Doesn´t matter

Unavailable Alternatives: James Rodriguez, Oscar, Ross Barkley, Maximilian Meyer

Need a replacement for Januzaj as an Attacking Midfielder (Attack) since he is quite injury prone and I couldn´t turn down a 63 Mio. € offer from Juve. Isco is technical slightly better, Götze instead more athletic and seems less injury prone. Moreover he is better off the ball. At the moment I tend to Götze, what do you think? Do you see any other alternatives?

Personally I would have kept Januzaj and bought a youngster to cover him when he's injured. Now he's sold, out of the two I'd take Isco.. but it depends what role they'll be filling! Also, if your alternatives are available options to you then James Rodriguez is surely the best option of the lot?

Should I sell him? I know there are other and better wb/fb`s out there, but he is homegrown, he has almost never been injured on this save, he has consistently high ratings and never plays a bad game.

If he goes, who should I replace him with? Carvajal looks promising...

You'll regret selling, especially at that price.

There aren't that many great RB's on the game, and Rafael is one of the best. You have De Sciglio, Carvajal, Azpilicueta... after that, Peruzzi, Clyne and Coleman.

Just make sure you sell him for more than that, look for £30/35m... and you have a bid accepted for another RB before you do. Buying a RB can be a pain!

Considering Rafael regularly gets offers of 35m or more from PSG, tell them where to stick it unless its 35m minimum :D

As Ty said, quality full backs are a premium in game and Rafael is one of the best right backs you can find. Replacing him will not come cheap.

Krasic is available for £100k, as he is transferlisted. However, my scouts doesn't think he's worthwhile signing.

I do however like his stats, and think he'll be a good back-up to Zaha. And the £100k isn't the world, so I'm thinking it's a deal, but maybe some of you have some experiences with Krasic, and could tell me wether to sign him or not?

Basically, I'm selling Menez as his contract is up at the end of the season and he won't resign. I have enough money to replace him with anyone, however I'm not in champions league so it limits who wants to come. I really like sanchez but my scouts say he's not a worthwhile signing and has injury problems. My other option is Ahmed Musa or Andre Hahn who I can get for 2.1m.

Selling Oscar is total heresy, but if you are set on Pogba, then the price isn't horrific for a first season purchase. What system? If 4-3-3 then it is more understandable, especially with the presence of Fabregas at the tip of 3. If a 4-2-3-1, then I personally think you would be better off with someone else. Have you tried putting Fabregas in the pivot and get Oscar to come very deep in order not to get overrun.

By all means, go for it if you can afford it and think that Pogba is the best option for your system, just presenting an alternative view.

I would use a 4 1 2 2 1. Pogba would probably be a DLP, with Cesc + Khedira as Roaming Playmakers, with the Hazard + Shaqiri/Willian as IFs and Costa as Poacher. Please leave your thoughts.

A few thoughts.

a) Playing Pogba so deep surely negates his impact. His best asset is his strength and box to box capacity, to play him so deep fails to utilise his major asset. Even Matic isn't amazingly well suited to a 4-3-3, though it can work.

b) Why would Khedira be played as a roaming playmaker? He has the energy, but (and I don't have the stats in front of me, so I could very well be wrong) have the vision or technical proficiency to be a playmaker.

c) Fabregas is fine. Whatever offensive role you put him in, he thrives.

d) Willian for me is a better AP/S or W/S (or even a DW/S at RM). Otherwise your team could easily become narrow.

I'm unsure about this guy. He's my star regen, has high determination, and 3.5-4.5 star potential - he's a promising midfielder with professional personality.

He's good enough already to give a run in the first team once in a while, but I have offensive talents ahead of him (Corlu, Laursen, Odegaard).

He will clearly turn out great, but who knows if he gets a long term injury or just doesn't perform? He has Basque second nationality so Athletic will presumably be gagging to get him throughout his career if I don't sell now.

Any thoughts?

Currently no backup for him in the team, not of his standard at least. I'm looking for a replacement and have set my eye on a Danish fullback but he won't have the same potential as this fellow. 30 mil is a smack of money for me, although I do play the group stage of the CL each season and even managed to get to the semis of the Euro Cup last year.
