Re: *Official Football Manager Discussion Thread*
Played a bit on my Liverpool save before i started this Sociedad save which is far more fun considering i do a Liverpool game every year and i haven't used any Sociedad players before bar Griezmann.
Had a pretty successful first season all things considered. Finished 3rd in the league, 11 points behind Madrid and 34 behind Barca who set a new record for points scored but i did get a win at home vs both of them. Got knocked out in the Spanish Cup in the semis and managed to get out of my CL group which had Porto, Marseille and City, then i lost to Arsenal after leading 3-1 going into the 2nd leg.
In: Balanta (8.5 mil), Rybka (free), Garmesh (9.75 mil)
Out: Gaztanaga (275k) + a bunch of loans
Just started this season, got a week left of the first transfer window but so far
In: Obiang (7.5 mil), Trapp (8 mil), Antonelli (free), Viera (1.6 mil)
Out: Cadamuro (550k), Bravo (1.5 mil), Seferovic (1.9 mil)
Got a solid team in all areas now, looking to keep pace with Madrid and hopefully sign a few regens when they come up later in the season. Hopefully none of my players want to khave a whinge and leave this year. Had both Griezmann and Vela get upset b/c they want to move to biger clubs last season but both are fine now. Griezmann's was centered around the fact that i rejected a 7 mil bid from Madrid for him and they backed off. Vela was just b/c. Inigo Martinez must have a brilliant loyalty rating as i've had Chelsea, Madrid, City and Barca all after him and not once has he kicked up a fuss about it.
My tactics i use are either a 4-2-3-1, attacking, 4-2-3-1, control or a 4-3-3, control so basically the CAM becomes a DM when i'm playing away against good team, or if i feel like a much more defensive formation. If i just want to be less attacking i go with the 4-2-3-1 with the control mentality. I try to play a high possesion, short passing game.
