FM19: Liverpool - Success Has Many Fathers

Recommended Posts

finally managed to get a bit of time to start a game and get into a save after many failed attempts and a few frustrated quit saves over tactics!!

 

have had a good read through of the tactics forums and also Cleon's tea & busquets blogs i've managed to set up a 433 tactic i like and that works for me. 

 

gotten to the first of Jan 2019 in my save and so far unbeaten. played 20, W 17  D 2 L 0 and i've only conceded 2 goals in the league. 

topped my champions league group and now have A Madrid in the 2nd round and have Chelsea in the Semi's of the league cup

 

players in are all focused on youth. i turned off transfers for window 1 but have slowly been able to get a few buys done for joining in the Jan window.

De Ligt and Tonali being the 2 major buys with fees spread over 3 seasons as i havent sold anyone yet and only had 30m to spend

also brought in, Pelayo Morillo 1.2m release clause and huge potential, young Serb LB Zlatan Sahovic, young DM/CM from barca's youth squad called Nico who my scouts rated highly and trying to Xadas from Braga who can play any of the attacking midfileds roles. 

 

will be looking to move on, Lovern, Matip, lallana, sturridge and Origi. i will keep Moreno until the end of the season as he now has british citizenship

I'm struggling to find a third CB. Just sold Lovern because of his age and his contract only have 18months to run. So need someone who can fill in for Gomez or Van Dijk. My fourth choice is currently Coady (got him for 5m) because he's a Home-Grown. But don't want to go into the second half of the season with him as my 3rd choice.

Any suggestions on who to sign?

Obvious one is De Ligt. First season had Van Dijk and Gomez as my starting pair then Matip and De Ligt as backups...Have you sold Matip? He's good!

10 games in and Curtis Jones is my top scorer. He doesn't even start, but coming on as a sub and the odd start he's had has resulted in 9 goals in 4 starts and 5 sub appearances. :D Beast, i'll post a screenshot later.

Vicinius Jnr is showing promise, only the 1 goal but a lot of outrageous efforts that are a top save away from being  a goal, Mbappe also on 9 goals. 

Blooding Navarro in on the right wing, feel he'll develop better here than on loan so he's gonna get some sub appearances and league cup games. Anyone got experience of him?

AML - inside forward but not AS good there, AMC is where the good stuff comes out ;) Think his potential is reached though, only 20 but the reports say he's pretty much reached his potential :(

Quick shot of Jones and Geubbels. Jones has the PPM "likes to run with the ball" and is driven so i reckon that's the secret behind him. 

Quick shot of Geubbels also, some scoring record, isn't it? He is mr physical.:D

I actually tried to avoid that, so have most of the players I started with. Even squad players like Ox, Clyne, Moreno, Matip, Harry Wilson  etc are really good players to bring in i think!

Just ruined a Southampton save like that.

Don't forget to hunt English talent, as you will be restricted to 16 foreign players soon.

What? Is this something to do with Brexit? I dont think Brexit should be in this years game since its not happened yet irl & the way May is going it might not happen at all.

The only result of Brexit in my save is that all EU players require a work permit which makes buying youth players from Europe almost impossibe unless they are already regularly playing in their national squad.

started again afer ruining the save with too many buys after season 1

 

tried something slightly different on this one and left Klopp in charge until the international break at the start of November in season 1 and took over then. club was in 6th place but only 7 points off top spot in a tight start. usual top 6 teams. 

now only 2 games to go in the league and we are top by 4 points from Man City and my next game where i can clinch the title is at home to United :) 

we have won the league cup and we are in the FA cup final where we play Birmingham and have Dortmund in the CL semi finals (bayern v Roma is the other) good chance of winning all 4 trophies. 

made 4 signings in Jan, De Ligt, Tonali, Szobolzai and Sehovic. De ligt and Tonali were bid on by others so had to move to get them in.

Undecuple "Undec"   or 11 trophys in a row.  This team is still young.  Transfers and future transfers.  If they will buy Rossini, PSG have to bid 150 mill £ . That will be the best sale in my Fm Career.

Chelsea stopped me in semifinale in CL, but cant blame the players. They give it all. 

2 players with red card, and 1 striker with injury in 65 minut. Have made  3 subs.  End the game with 8 players.
