Re: *Official Football Manager Discussion Thread*

From my experience, Benatia is like Carragher, Evans (pre-2012) and Lescott, Pique. Excelled next to perfect defenders, dire next to a less experienced player. Hes done well next to Zouma & S. Taylor, but wasn't so great next to Inigo Martinez. To give him games, I usually ship him onto the right when Anita is tired.

Made an uncharacteristic signing of buying a left winger, who has the weakness of Important Games & Intelligence. Despite that, 6 goals in 13 starts and 8 assists. 8 dribbling runs per games. Pretty much what my attack has needed. Has given something completely different, which I've needed. My previous left wingers (Vuckic, Coutinho, Marveaux) haven't burst forward enough, throwing in crosses on every opportunity. I can see the affect its had. All three of them are natural AMCs. Can't remember the table precisely last season, but I'm sure I've scored 100% more goals. 35 goals after 11 games.

I'll probably ship him out after this season tbh. I only went for him as he's solid, was transfer listed and i needed a CB that i could also slot into RB on occasion. Got a 15 year old regen RB i bought who i want to move into the first team squad in as soon as i can so i'll probably keep him until then. Wollscheid is a boss and Toprak/Reinartz are pretty good so i'm alright at CB.

Re: *Official Football Manager Discussion Thread*

Can anyone suggest a half decent team to go for someone who is fairly new to the game?

Re: *Official Football Manager Discussion Thread*

After a slow November through to March, where my Newcastle side has kept the points coming in consistently (for once), back to some crushing scorelines. On the verge of winning the big fat quadruple.

Beat Chelsea in the League Cup
In the semi finals of the FA Cup
In the quarter finals of the Champions League, 5-1 up at Barcelona as I'm typing this.
2 games in hand over Spurs, but 4 points behind.

Throw in the Club World title & the Euro Super Cup, going for the, err, sextuple. Very lucky to get a crushing fixture schedule coming up.

Finally properly playing FM12 after buying it cheap in the summer. Halfway through my first season, managing Basingstoke Town in the Blue Square South. Currently 2nd in the table, which is most unlike me as my teams are usually relegation fodder.

Celtic. You should coast the SPL and it will give you a lot of opportunity to tweak formations, get to know players and the game in general.

Do the teams as far as the 9th tier contain existing players or is it just players that were already included on original game database? Thanks

Cheers!



On another note, been playing through a Liverpool save and had a weird month or so..

The losses started happening after Borini got injured and on his return...



Still gutted about getting knocked out of the Europa by Hearts..


Edit: My team really misses Borini up front.. Got injured for the second time this season and we started doing terrible in every match, going from playing like Barca to playing like Accrington.. Still managing to hold 3rd place though, so I'm not too fussed..
