    I've put myself int he driving seat for a good season.

    Suso was on loan at Almeria last year, playing in Spain's La Liga racking up an impressive 9 goals and 4
    assists in 31 apperences. Despite his good form, I left he was not quite ready for the demands I was
    placing on my players and felt a Premier League loan move at a club not challenging for honors would help him reach to the level we all know he's capable of.

    So far, he's shown his tallent and I'll be paying close attention to him, bringing him back to Anfield in January if I feel he's ready for 1st team football at here.

    I had very high hipes for Jones and knew he could one day become a very good CB at Liverpool, but he needed a league where he could shine and build up his confidence, then Sligo Rovers asked for him on loan. The Irish Premier Division is a decent enough level and he is with a team that is challenging for the title and European spots regularly. 1st tream football has definatly helped his development and his stats are wuite impressive now, I'm looking to see if he can fit into my first team as a rotation player when he returns in December of next year.

    Youth Development

    I'm very committed to the youth at this club. I brought in Alonso and Shevley because I felt they could add to the squad right now but I doubt I'll be making any signings
    in January.

    I've been trying to incorporate the youngster more and more.




    Youth players in the Senior Team Squad:
    Name
    From
    App'
    Notes
    Rob Noakes

    16yrs
    Norwich (975K pounds) 7( 6) 4 goals and 4 assists
    for the young English starlet. At only 16 years of age, we could have a potential world class player on my hands guys!
    Jordan Rossiter

    17yrs
    Kirby Academy 6(4) 3 goals from the Liverpool born youngster. He's been looking very solid in midfield and with Xabi Alonso tutoring him, I can see him being a main-stay in my side for 10+ years.
    Ryan Fulton

    18yrs
    Kirby Academy 0 Just promoted to the first team after a string of impressive performances for the reserves. He's still only 18 but I've pulled most of him GK attributes up to between 10-15 so he could one day be a back-up keeper for us.
    Julian Brandt

    18yrs
    Wolfsburg (Free) 10(2) Julian came in as a hot prospect but he's quickly established himself as one of my rotation right wingers. An impressive 2 goals and 4 assists so far have made him a valuable addition tot he 1st team.
    Jordon Ibe

    18yrs
    Kirby Academy 6(4) No goals or assist for young Ibe but I've high hopes for him. I have faith in him but I'll be letting him out on loan during January to get regular 1st team football, I think he needs it to boost his development.
    Raheem Sterling

    19yrs
    Kirby Academy 7(3) 2 Goals in the Champions League so far. He hasn't been all that impressive int he league so far this season but there's still time yet.
    John Flanagan

    21yrs
    Kirby Academy 5(1) My second choice Right Back after Glen Johnson. He has very solid stats and has been quite impressive so far this term. He's looked confident in his first Champions League season, starting 3 games.
    Jack Robinson

    21yrs
    Kirby Academy 9(1) I've been a fan of Robinson for a long time, very solid stats and a decent premier level player. He's a player I can count on defensively and thus finds himself as my second choice Left Back.

    This was an exciting month to be apart of: Climbed back to the top 5, done the double of Real Madrid
    Clawed my way back form a West Brom side that played out of their skin and an unfortunate own-goal
    denying me a win in the Merseyside Derby.
    I give you, November!

    The good days are back at Anfield! Champions League football is getting the best out of
    my players, a squad many would not assess as being good enough to do well in this competition but
    I'll show people what passion and drive can do.

    Sometimes you just have to ignore the result and enjoy the ride. This was an absolute epic!
    West Brom were 19th in the League and needed a strong performance to show they
    had what it took the stay up, they put me to the sword and Inui scored a screamer
    from outside the box. Grit, determination and resolve were all I could rely on, I had faith
    in the XI i had on the pitch, switched from "Standard" to "Overload" and trusted Kelly, Agger
    and ter Stegen to keep our losses to 2 while we bombarded the West Brom goal looking to claw
    the result.

    Miscommunication in the back-line, Johnson passed the ball back to ter Stegen,
    Agger tried to intercept it only to put the ball into his own net. I had my head in my hands
    but I couldn't fault Agger, Howard was in fantastic form denying countless shots on goal.

    Gerrard missed another Penalty, that's his second (or third) one I think. About time
    he was relieved of this duty. Changing my penalty taker to Suarez

    We played well, not blindingly well but well enough to win this game. Giroud was on fire
    though and proved impossible to live with.

    Very close game. The first half goal put us on the back foot but we kept up with them, even when
    they extended they lead to 2-0, we didn't give up. A 3-2 win for the home side was a fair result but
    I think we can hold our heads high. 4 years out of Europe and it took a trip to the Russian Champions, in
    the December Russian winter to finally undo us. 5 win, 1 loss in Europe. . . .I'll take that!

    They got lucky! That's all there really was too it. De Gea played a blinder while Valencia ran from inside his
    own half to score a wonder-goal! The kind of goals you'd see in a premier league add, even I had to applaud it!
    Suarez finally gave us something to show for our good play but a free kick was headed in by an offside Daren Fletcher. Didn't bother complaining, you win some you loose some. Still hurt though!

    Luis Suarez reminded us all why he was last years and leading goalscorer. Smashing 4 past Southampton in just 30 mins. It was a challenge to hold on to him at the start of the season, he declared his intention to leave but I was having none of it and now he is determined and fighting for the cause. He's the current League's Top Scorer with 16 goals in 18 appearances (19 league games played).

    "Fuck off Luck Steele, that was my goal!!!!!" Coutinho was seen shouting at the reporters after this match.
    I expected an easy game . . . . . . I was wrong. Barnsley put up stiffer resistance than I thought they would and I failed to break them down as often as I'd have liked to. 1-1, fair result.

    I now have the Uruguayan tied to the club during his peak years! With his amazing form
    and clinical eye in front of goal, I am refusing to let him go. Now that the club is armed with a new long term contract, it shouldn't be too hard to keep one of the world's best players at the club.

    120,000 p/w was a steep deal to agree to but I managed to get his appearance fee
    down to 21K (He initially asked for 50K) and I entice him to reach my quota of 20 goals a
    season by offering 1.5M for achieving the task. A 4 and a half year contract will keep the player at the club
    until he is 32.

  13. Some pretty low ratings that month, (notably countinho) but overall good results. Keep it coming!

    Aye. I've noticed the opposition have started man-marking him so I've been trying to find a new way to play him since he's been ineffectual in the F9 role I had so much success with last season.

    The game got away form us after Coutinho's injury, Newcastle got on top, started to dominate possession and took the lead 15 minutes before time. No complaints here, the lads played well but it was a fair result.

    This was the beginning of something horrible for me. Coutinho injured and soon afterwards, Alonso, Agger Gerrard, Robinson & Toure all got injured within 3 days of each other. Meaning I was left with only 1 fit Center Back in Sakho. Recalled Loyd Jones form Sligo Rovers and he made his debut in the Capital One Cup but injury problems at the back cost me dearly.

    Taking a 3-0 away goal lead into this game, I put out some youngsters to give them match experience. Didn't really care about the result, as long as you didn't lose by 3, I was fine with it. Made for a nervy last 10 minutes though as they scored 2

    Only had one fit Center Back for this match, had to throw Johnson in at R(CB) and trust Flanagan on the right to
    keep Hazard contained; which he did pretty well! I was gutted by this match, Cech finished the game with a Man of the Match winning 7.6 performance and that ultimately proved the difference.

    Stolen at the death!!! Very close game and a draw probably was a fair result, except the German teenager was there to apply the finish to Suarez's brilliant thru-ball!

    I'm happy with how the season's gone so far.

    Transfer Targets for 2015/16 season


    Liverpool F.C. The 5 year Project.-untitled.png
    Would have tried to sign him in January but he's already played competitively for 2 teams
    this season so it'd be a wast of money to go for him now. I can see him being World Class in no time
    at all and my defense needs improving.

    Estimated Cost: 15M-23M

    Liverpool F.C. The 5 year Project.-untitled.png
    Had my eye on this guy ever since the German youth intakes came into the clubs. Sadly, I didn't spot him before
    he signed a contract. Going to track his progress and see if he's worth bringing to the club. 17/16/16 in Agility, Determination and Balance are a fantastic starting point for a young Goalkeeper so he's worth tracking.

    While most would ignore him since hes only 5'10", I'm only 5'11" myself but I played in Goal for 10+ years
    and never felt my height was a disadvantage because of my agility. Lefts see if it's true for FM also

    Estimated Cost: 4M-10M

    I don't use home or away formations. I base my game plan off two pre-prepared tactics and then adjust to suit the opposition. I pick whichever one I feel can get me a result.

    John Ruddy! What a Goalkeeper! Seriously underrated.

    finishing with a deserved Man of the Match 8.0 rating.

    Somewhat of a grudge match this one was. Everton were the defending FA Cup Holders, wining the
    trophy at my expense last season so I had my chance to take revenge, and dump them out of the competition
    in the process. I lost my last 3 meeting agasint Everton so this was a must win.

    Daniel Sturridge had been having a difficult few weeks and hadn't found the back of the
    net in two months, then he scores 2 in as many minutes, securing a home win against the Swans.

    I'm sitting in 3rd (my season's aim) as of now but a lot can change in the next 101 games. Spurs and
    Chelsea have games in hand over me (1 & 2, respectively) so I could find myself 5th very quickly.

    Huge result and a vital away-goal to take to Anfiled. As it stands, Dortmund have to score an away goal to
    stay in the competition because as it stands, they are going out. Daniel Sturridge getting the all important goal, with a shot from distance mind you, one of them PPM's everyone's been giving out about all year

    This was an unmitigated disaster. What a woeful preformance and an utterly devastating result.
    Anything that could have gone wrong, did go wrong. Coutinhio missed a penalty, we couldn't get any shots on target, passes wouldn't find their man while everything Chelsea touched seemed to turn to gold. Lost two
    men to injuries and had to finish with ten men as I'd already made my three subs when Johnson pulled up in the
    75th minute.

    Not sure how to feel here: 2nd cup final, 2nd runners-up medal. I should be proud of the lads for reaching this far, my aim included a cup final appearance but it stings to come so close, twice, only to fall down to yet another 1-0 score line.

    I'm a Liverpool fan, meaning I can be forgiven for ignoring Everton's Away goal



    Aye, the youngsters are killing me since consistancy is hard to sustain but I hate spending 80M+ a season (over x-amount-of-months) like the regular players do to sure up their squads immediately before chasing Regens. I've been approaching this like a real manager, favoring the players at my disposal and only bringing in people who I feel I can 1) afford and 2) can influence the squad straight away.


    The over all aim for the save is to use the youth academe to produce my future players.

    Speaking of youth players, I'm in March and you all know what that means. Youth intake day!

    Aye, I mentioned them above. Suarez's moral plummeted since we had a disagreement over how badly he played (Fined him and he didn't feel he deserved the fine) and we all know how hard it is to get form out of a lad with "abysmal" moral. I've felt the lads have been playing well often enough but consistency for me is the mark of world class players. I've the youngest squad in the premiership with a lot of young talent being brought into the first team: I'm expecting rough patches from time to time.

    Youth intake came in, evaluated the youngsters and singed 9 kids to the club.

    Two kids stood out, both local lads, being born in Liverpool.
    I think they have a great future at the club and they remind me of two recent Legends.

    The next Jamie Carragher
    Liverpool F.C. The 5 year Project.-elliot-ball.png
    Team Work, Work Rate, Determination & Natural Fitness of 16+
    This kid reminds me so much of Carragher.


    The next Steven Gerrard
    Liverpool F.C. The 5 year Project.-untitled-2.png
    This kid is an all rounder. With decent Work Rate, Team Work, Excellent Natural Fitness and Stamina,
    Heading and Technique of 13 and 14 respectively with Marking and Passing of 10. The complete footballer
    could be a label giving to this kid in a few years.



    Liverpool F.C. The 5 year Project.-untitled1.png
    This kid reminds me of Luis Suarez and I'll be using him to tutor the young Brazilian.

    Liverpool F.C. The 5 year Project.-untitled2.png
    Going to wait to see him develop but he's got some solid starting stats

    Liverpool F.C. The 5 year Project.-untitled3.png
    Nothing special but looks like he could one day be a solid Premier Center Back.

    Liverpool F.C. The 5 year Project.-untitled4.png
    Great Reflexes and Determination. I'll be keen to see how he develops

    Liverpool F.C. The 5 year Project.-untitled5.png
    Determination, teamwork and work rate earned him a contract. Don't think he'll ever challenge for a
    1st team place though.

    Liverpool F.C. The 5 year Project.-untitled7.png
    Great Determination! His positioning and Physical Stats earned him a contract. Will be seeing how he develops.

    Liverpool F.C. The 5 year Project.-untitled9.png
    5'1" I'll be retraining him to LW since he's too short to operate at LB in my eyes.
    Still, Good Stamina and Determination meas he could develop pretty well.

    Boom! secured a Champions League place. My aim for this season was 3rd but I underperformed agasint the top sides and that let me down: So many 1-0 losses. Still, a top 4 place is incredibly important.
    Secured two cup finals. The Capital One Cup (Lost) and the UEFA Champions League (TBP)
    Good season none the less and a great platform for next year.

    There is something romantic about Liverpool and the second 45 minutes of the Champions League Final.
    10 years on from their heroics in Rome, Liverpool have come from behind to snatch a trophy they were considered firm outsiders to lift at the start of the season.

    "This is a slap in the face to this City. We just won the Champions League and they're throwing this at us. Disgraceful!"

    "I don't care if it means we get a 60,000 seated stadium, Liverpool should be playing their matches in Liverpool!"



    Liverpool Football Club will play their home fixtures for the 2015/16 Season in Manchester City's Eithad Stadium.

    Ironically, yes he is. News that Anfield is being redeveloped means we're moving to City's Stadium for the season
