Re: *Official Football Manager Discussion Thread*

Yeah, Lars Bender makes my annual Leverkusen save very enjoyable. Going to be interesting in FM14 with no Schurrle, Carvajal etc.

I started a new game, skimmed ahead to 2018 and started looking for jobs. Chelsea who were in 9th became available so i took it. Some of the transfers in game are amusing. Like they signed a LM for 17 mil or something and never played him, they let Mata go on a free at the age of 28, there is a ton of central Mids, and CBs but only 1 LB and RB. Also amazingly there is a regen that is my best CB and my best striker. idk how that happened but i'm playing him as a back b/c his finishing is 9. The first XI is pretty gun though. From memory there is

Courtois

Azpilicuerta (sp?) Luiz Chalobah/regen Bertrand

Pardo Ramsey

Lamela Oscar Hazard

Watt

with ramires, bittencourt, allen (who i'm selling next window), and a bunch of cb's on the bench. Plus there is some guy that has 20 pace and 20 acceleration. Haven't used him yet, will have to see how he goes. Won the first 2 matches against Liverpool and Wigan. Got Spurs up next iirc. Not sure how long i'm going to stay with Chelsea as this squad is already pretty boss.

One thing that annoys me on the game is how most wingers can't play in the RM/LM position naturally or even accomplished. I hardly ever play with 2 up front because of this; it seems too attacking to have the wide players in winger roles as opposed to in line with the CMs. They should be able to play a little deeper naturally; obviously their defensive qualities wouldn't be that great.
Thats where position training comes into play. You train them to play as a LM/RM if you want, or you buy someone who is naturally a deeper mid. Many wingers irl don't play that deep.

His stats are probably fairly variable. Some players get given a pretty much fixed CA/PA, some are given -8, -9 etc which means they'll fall within a 20 stat range.

Re: *Official Football Manager Discussion Thread*

On my Man Utd save I'm now in December first season, Welbeck & Hernandez are out for another 2 months, Rooney got a broken leg and is out for 9 months and RVP broke his metatarsal. Only fit striker I have left is John Cofie

On the plus side Glazer gave me a massive transfer fund due to financial success somehow and I'm in talks with Neymar for 43 million & 22 million for Bender is already sorted, have about 14 million to get a striker.

Always forget about Leverkusen had a fantastic save with them back on FM11, i may have to try them over dortmund.

Went with Leverkusen thanks to rush mentioning them, they better be worth it :nando

Re: *Official Football Manager Discussion Thread*

I was going to download one of them manual updates but i'll wait a week or two more for another update and see what other transfers go down in that time.




Thiago PLEASE!!!!


Have a feeling i'm gonna end up as dortmund just one of them teams i can jump right into same goes for united, juve and everton just seem to get into them and stick more than others and on the occasion chelsea/arsenal/spurs/city but i think one of them be most fun on the update.

Re: *Official Football Manager Discussion Thread*

i've never bothered with a utd game because i would just sell everyone good and then leave, i know it.

i mentioned city in my last post but honestly i find it tough getting going with them, i end up selling/trying to sell half the team and just buying players in don't need.

I do it on fifa also with city/chelsea just sell everyone i don't like or don't rate and go on a spending spree which never works out how i like.

Re: *Official Football Manager Discussion Thread*

Leverkusen on FM11 was BOSS, midfield of Rolfes/Vidal/Ballack and then had Bender, Renato Augusto and Ballitsch too. Kiessling was still good, Adler was GOAT worthy, Castro was way better stats wise as an RB, they had a killer side.

Is it just me or do players seem to get worse stat wise every year? like it's hard to find players with 15+ stats these days, I remember a few years back the best players had like 17+ for their main attributes

I'm so bored of the current edition of FM, signing the same people over and over again because you've figured out good tactics and the players who fit in the positions you play.

It is a lot more difficult but if you really do want a challenge go into random player mode/no real players. Harder trying to get the good players but a lot more satisfying finding the hidden gems.
