Re: *Official Football Manager Discussion Thread*

yeah with money the first player i signed was hazard

raided various countries for good backup, ended up finding rainford kalaba from tp mazembe in congo. 1.9 mil, has 16 first touch and many of his other stats are mid teens. only 24 and got him on 6k a week too, will be my starting amc, rotating with taarabt with hazard on the left wing and SWP~!~!~! on the right.

transfers in: hazard (35 mil), khune (300k), vertonghen (8.25 mil), vorsah (4.2 mil), jali (1 mil), kalaba (1.9 mil), martial (1.8 mil), carlos garcia (800k)
out: hulse (300k loan), fitz hall (1.2 mil), helgusson (600k), tommy smith (1.4 mil), cerny (600k), buzsaky (1 mil), ephraim (1.4 mil), ramage (1.3 mil), borrowdale (850k), mackie (3.4 mil), perone, ehmer, balanta (loans).

first team is likely:
khune
taiwo vert vorsah young
faurlin
hazard kalamba swp
cisse

not sure whether to get another rb or just keep black messi as backup, i have a fair bit of depth, but more guys will be going next season cos you can get rid of them due to only just arriving (gabbidon, dyer, bothroyd, campbell plus a few guys in the reserves.) make sure you get the training/youth facilities upgraded asap cos they're deplorable.

Re: *Official Football Manager Discussion Thread*

i always try to shy away from players i consistently sign. of the guys i've brought in, i've only bought one in another game i've played (vert). plus he went to benfica anyways. black BESSI (fuck you shep) will be retrained as an rb, might bring in someone cheap and young in case both young and bessi go down

Re: *Official Football Manager Discussion Thread*

If you guys want a very good cheap striker I'd go for Wilfried plays for Vitesse and has a release clause of 2.5 million I signed him and he scored 20+ goals in a season also Leigh Griffiths is awesome cost me 800k and also Vaclev Kadlec hes pretty expensive though at 8million but last season scored 28 goals in the Prem for me.

Im in my 5th season with Blackburn Rovers, first season I finished 8th and managed to get a Europa spot through winning the league cup.

Second season i got £35 million to spend, spent it mostly on younger players so i could push on in the future, that season I ended up finishng 3rd! just about though was surprised myself so i was in the champions league with a decent budget I bought a few CL experienced players and again some more young players. I also got beat in the Europa league final by Zenit

Third season I had a group of Real Madrid, Schalke, Kiev and me, I managed to go unbeaten in my group beat Madrid at home then drew, I got to the quaters then Faced madrid Drew 1-1 at home then 0-0 away so went out on goal difference was dissapointed, In the league it went down to the last day, between me, man city and Liverpool I was facing Liverpool aswell I drew therefore Man City Won the league and I finished 3rd again, I also won the FA cup not bad at all haha.

My fourth season I made some decent signings again wanted to push on Champions League I got Inter Athletico Madrid, and Sporting I managed to again go unbeaten and storm the group i face Real madrid in the next round, I just about beat them on Penalties, then I went on to face Arsenal and barcelona on my way to the final which then I had Liverpool in the final, I went 2-0 down thought it was over but somehow went on to win 3-2 the league yet again went down to the final day I yet again drew and Finished 3rd 3 points from 1st I also won the league cup and FA cup thus completing a treble was very proud.

Now my current season signed some nice players Nasri, Pastore and a few young players played four games in the league won 2 lost 1 drawn 1 got Zenit APOEL and Porto in my group in the champions league just Beaten APOEL 7-0 hahaha, but Im looking towards winning the league thats my main objective, here is my team at the moment...

-------------Kadlec---Griffiths

Tosic----------Nasri/Ninis/Pastore-------Di Maria

------------------N'Zonzi

Coentrão-------Coates-----Samba-------Diekmier

-------------------Ter Stegen

Subs/Reserves:
Hoilett
Wilfried
Niang
Olsson
Fuchs
Munoz
Erick Torres
Carlos Fierro
Steven Taylor
Micah Richards
Kameni
Kara
Jali
(a few others, cant remember off the top of my head)

Well thats a summary of my FM 2012 Experience so far.

Re: *Official Football Manager Discussion Thread*

decided to start a montpellier game and see if i could get the league win as well. 12.2 update is a bit of a bitch, no budget to work with and Hilton on a massive 25k per week which you can't do anything about seeing as he's a new arrival.

Sold Pionner (500k), Marveaux (5 mil), Dernis (900k) and Derplange (300k)
Signed Kara (975k) and Sanogo (2.5 mil over 48 months) for this window and am picking up romario in the jan window due to the under 18 rules in brazil.

Missed out on Jali and Bressan as i had no budget to work with but i should be able to challenge with the squad i have. Really want to finish high so i can a) get some money and b) raise the profile of the club so i can sign some gun frees next year.

Re: *Official Football Manager Discussion Thread*

I've noticed people seem to love Vrsaljko here, I looked at signing him for my new Chelsea save and he only had ** potential? Is he just a better lower team player or should I sign him as he'll get better?

How do you buy players for $X over X months. I can't find it, am I just blind?

i love vrsaljko. It depends on how much you want to spend. On the original update he cost a mil. Now its up to about 3 but thats nothing seeing as he's a good buy for a lot of teams, he's young, his wages aren't high etc etc. There are better right backs out there, but it depends on how much you want to spend. Walker from Spurs is pretty boss.

when you bid for a player you go to additional fees and click on monthly installments. So you can pay none up front and pay it off over time

Re: *Official Football Manager Discussion Thread*

after 8 games im 4th with qpr, 4 wins 4 draws.

0-2 win over chelsea
0-2 win over hereford (league cup round 2)
0-4 win over stoke
1-1 draw with villa
4-1 win over newcastle
0-1 win over norwich
1-0 loss to sunderland (league cup 3rd round)
1-1 draw with man united
2-2 draw with liverpool
1-1 draw with blackburn

struggling to get the right balance. taarabt and hazard both have 3 goals, so does vertonghen. cisse has been very ordinary and so has zamora, swp started well with a couple of goals and dropped off massively. playing a counter game against the bigger teams and a balanced game against the others, with a whole bunch of tweaks to the team. i think the midfield is struggling, cos i cant seem to get the right balance using faurlin, , jali and diakite. being undefeated is alright, would've liked to have made the semi's for the league cup at least, but the team should improve as the settling in. khune for 300k in goals is an absolute beast.

Your season seems pretty similar to mine. I do very well against lower/mid table teams, including a 3-0 win at White Hart Lane, but, unlike you, I get destroyed by the top teams, like a 5-1 loss to Manchester United, and 4-0 against Arsenal. I play counter attacking against the top teams, and attacking against all the others.

Oh, and how good does John Flanagan turn out to be, because I seem to sign him every game I play (QPR, Chelsea, West Brom (on loan))?
