FM Experiment Series - The G.O.A.T of the Premier League

  1. FM Experiment Series - The G.O.A.T of the Premier League

    What if Suarez had stayed at Liverpool?

    What if Bale had stayed at Spurs?

    What if the top 6 teams had kept their strongest squads?

    Now if you're like me and have read countless web articles called something like 'Spurs team if they hadn't sold their players' followed by an image like this...

    Naturally it gets you thinking about your own team and what sort of team could be put out each week.

    For this experiment I have attempted to achieve just that. For each of the 'Top 6' teams in the Premier League I have either reversed some previous transfers or improved the weaker areas of their teams through returning former players to their peak.

    The following rules were used:

    • Only people who are on the original FM database were edited i.e. Patrick Vieira is not longer a player so was changed back to a player and place in the Arsenal squad

    • Any player who was put into one of the squads had their age reduced so avoid 45 year old players

    • When changing a staff member to a player it automatically gives them no stats. I used my best judgement to give the players the stats of when they were at their peak for their respective clubs


    In some cases it was unnecessary to reinstate certain players as the positions were already adequately covered i.e De Gea removes the need for Schmeichel

    Teaser: Chelsea have a midfield of Kante and Makelele


    First part is a 5 minute video and shows the squads in more detail

    Cheers Battman. As soon as I started seeing the squads I got excited about it! I was thinking about uploading the database but then thought perhaps it would be better to play through a season or two and see the feedback, could be that I should adjust the players stats or add in extra players. What do you think?

    Was trying to decide who I would want to play with most. Ended up between Arsenal and United (probably not a coincidence that most of their added players are from when it was the best rivalry in PL history)

    Yeah good idea

    Tempted by reigniting a Keane and Vieira rivalry?

    Just finishing the first video and can honestly say it was such an interesting first season. Trophies won, surprise transfers and unexpected results.
