    Well, I certainly won't be letting him go. You'd be a Mad-man to get a 30+ goal a season player leave the club! So he has two options really.

    1) Rot on my bench

    or

    2) light the pitch on fire and fight to retain the trophy!

  4. what a season.First win against Man U was the CL final!Wow!I believe next season MUST be a revenge towards everton.With a couple of moves you can reach for top 2 or 3. Wilshere is a top-class player, a move from arsenal will be ideal!
    Do you have any other transfer targets?

    Aye, he's bloody expensive though. They want 50M+ for him. Not sure if it's going to happen this season since I don't have that kind of money to play with.

    Very good midfielder but he got phased out by Jonjo Shelvey. Jonjo is one of my favorite players and with Steven Gerrard still going strong at 35, I decided to get Allen go and bring in some money since I'm not short on Midfield talent.

    He didn't impress me. Spent the second half of the season on loan at Roma and didn't do much. I'm spoiled for attacking options with Sterling, Suarez, Ibe, Brandt and Sturridge not to mention Noakes, Ojo and Sinclare are on their way up the ranks.

    No room for him. Shawcross hit the ground running and Lloyd Jones came back form his loan spell first team ready. Would have liked to get more than 2.5M for him but he was out injured for 16 months with ligament damage so that really hurt his ability.

    I feel for theis kid, I really do. Liveprool his his favorite club and he got signed by them. I gave him 12 months but he failed to score a single league goal but did fairly well on loan in the Championship. I decided that he's just get int he way of developing my youngsters so I let him move on.

    Don't forget, I'm starting my 3rd season so most of his PA related Value will have gone.
    He'll never be as good as he probably could have been but I think he could be an amazing creative player for me.


    Budgets
    Transfer: 34M
    Wages: 212K p/w

    I want to keep a big chunk of that so I can assess what I need in January, I've a strong squad right now so nothing drastic needs to be done. I brought in a Left Back (Layvin Kurawa) since I think Enrique is nearing his end.

    I've a lot of youngsters so I'll be rotating a lot. I've also planned for injuries since November/December/January is a hectic month.
    It's a big squad but I rather have too many than too few. I can send boys on loan in January if they are not even looking like breaking into the team.

    Our day was not over yet. A golder oppertunity had been presented. Left Back was the area I wanted strengthened this summer. We made a signing in French LB Layvin Kurzawa, but Shaw was potentially the Best Left back int he world! To be taken seriously, as Defending Champions League Holders, we needed to signal our intent! We needed to spend money!

    Sometimes you just have to grit your teeth and move on. I felt we had the edge but a draw for a close match was probably the right result. Hurt to loose the 3pts so late close to full time.

    De-ja-vu! Sucker punched and the team let in 2 goals after taking a 2-0 lead on the 80 minute.
    Brandt hit the post 3 minutes from full time:extra time, and the lottery of the penalty shoot out went against us.

    let this one behind us. That brings our tally of runner-up medals to 3.

    He was a coach but I wanted him training the 1st team since he's a 4.5 star coach in Shooting and Ball Control.

    I also wanted to clear the position of "Head of youth development" since his nationality plays a part in what nation your regens are from. So an Englishman to make sure my best regens are English.




    About his sacking: Shocked I am, surprised I hadn't heard about it. Borrell was at La Messa when Messi was coming through and trained him in the U13s. Rumors are himself and Frank McParkland have been sacked.

    He's a coach and wouldn't accept a scouting role without offering him crazy money. I wanted him as an Explorer scout (Adaptability: 20, Determination: 18) to raise our scouting knowledge around the world.

    So if he turns out shite, can I blame you? He get's nervous often and it's hard to get him to preform in big games (moral and body language is always anxious or worried), hopefully it's because he's still young but I didn't pay that much for him so I can afford to not get the best out of him right now.

  37. Mixed results, mate.

    How's tactical familiarity? And you reckon the team has gelled well? In my Groningen game, I noticed a stark improvement in the second half of the season - when the team finally gelled. Perhaps that's the reason you're going through a slug?

    What slug? I've no idea where you're coming from mate.
    I'm 6 games in: 3 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss. I call that a solid start.

    Tactical familiarity is fine, considering it's September!



    I also keep having to explain to people. I'm predominantly using youth players who are still developing. Consistency is always going to be an issue here.

    Be sure you've a solid defense and good composure since it's vulnerable to wide attacks since there's no pressure on the oppositions full backs. You can tell the wide strikers to man-mark the FB's but you loose the 3-on-2 overlap when counterattacking.

    Sound man. Just be careful with the tactic. It is vulnerable at the back. It's very much tipped towards the F9 and if he doesn't play well, you need to take a step back and build from the back.

    will do; is there any other Team instructions other than the ones in the SS?

  47. Brendn are you giving individual instructions to players ? Sturridge plays pretty bad . In mine Lpool save he was best and most constant player. Looks like more suited for wide attacker in this ME. Love story, only one i am refreshing for updates .

    Generally, no. I've found player instructions (more often than not) upset the teams rhythm and cause unpredictability on the pitch.
    He's been okay for me over the past 2.5 years, chipping in with some good goals but he doesn't offer much to build up play so I think I'll be letting him go soon.

    I think player instructions are quite useful when used properly. For eg if you have a winger with extremely high dribbling attribute, agility and speed, Dribble more instruction will cause havoc for opposition defence. (I use this on Hazard, you might on Suarez if you play him on wings). It's less useful for central players, wide players have more space to run onto.

    Aye, I've had decent results with them but I find it hard to get the right balance. I have PI (player instruction) given to a few guys, ie. my full-backs have "get forward often" and my F9 has "holds up the ball" but overall, I don't want that much individual freedom since I like my teams playing a compact, team-based based game.

    It's all about your vision for how you want the team to play. I like to see a lot of passes, (not Barca-esqu football, I don't want to imitate anyone) but I want to see the ball being moved around a lot. Stretching from wing to wing with a patient approach so I usually have "play wider, shorter passing, look for the overlap and pass into space" picked. That's the way I like to play football.
