      Just for a fun i decided to wait for one season to know what can BR do.Surprisingly Liverpool sacked BR in the middle of december due to the league postition (17th) and europa league exit. So i decided to take over liverpool to see what i can do. Would be a real challenge i guess. Was surprised to see no RB in the team. GJ went to chelsea, Flanno and Mcg is on loan, Kelly injured, no wonder why BR got the sack. Now i need to get pass tight December schedule and buy a new RB.
      Secure mid table position is my expectation.

      Started a Liverpool game recently, coming towards the end of my first season in charge. Got knocked out of the Europa League by Metalist in the last 32 which was disappointing, but won the League Cup after beating Arsenal on pens. About to play the FA Cup Final against Spurs. In terms of the league, I really should've had 4th sewn up but we cocked up and now we'll almost certainly finish 6th.

      One question, is it normal to go spiralling into quite big debt in the first season? My wages aren't excessive and I didn't spend more than the board gave me, but I'm £20m in the red.

      Wow. Was really exciting season. Managed to finish 7th in the last game and pushed everton to 8th  ;D. Planning to save the club from the mess BR made.

      I have Cavani, Suarez and Van Wolfswinkel as my strikers with Gameiro as back up as well. Ridiculous that i need 45 shots to score 3 goals with those guys as my choices. It's a lottery if the ball goes in.

      Ironically i'm up 6-1 vs Chelsea right now from 22 shots.

      My problem is exactly the same with this game. Watch it with key highlights and I'm lucky to see 3 plays and at the end I see that we had 30+ shots and little to no CCC's  :-\

      For me the problem is, with one tactic i will get a very good run for 5 or six games. Then it will fail miserably. The back passes to GK is pretty annoying, i have already conceded around 3 goals in that way,i think short passing is the problem.

      I create at least 5:1 clear cut chances vs my opponent and find myself up 4-3 or something stupid. It's not fair.

      Can't wait to get home from work and finish my season. FA cup final vs Arsenal (who have come back from 2-0 down twice in the last two finals vs me and won on penalties) and the league has 5 teams within 4 points with three games left.

      I have City and Chelsea of course while they all play relegation teams.

      Finished my 2nd season with Liverpool, another season of good progress and success. Started put by winning the Charity Shield against the Mancs on pens after a goalless draw. Got knocked out of the League Cup by United in the quarters and re FA Cup by Middlesbrough in the 3rd round. In January I sold the misfiring Suarez to Madrid for £22.5m and bought Luuk de Jong for £30m. He's been awesome. Finished 3rd in the league which was excellent and won the Europa League against Spurs 3-1 after going behind. Henderson and de Jong (x2) with the goals.

      Oh, and Henderson is f**king quality. As is Assaidi.

      Won the Euro Super Cup, FA Cup and Club World Cup.

      3rd in the league. 6 points separated the top 6 teams.

      Barcelona approached me. Don't know what to do. I'll probably stay because i have come within a whisker of winning the league all 3 seasons.

      Board gave me £43m, sold Borini for £10m and selling Suso for £2.5m. Brought in Oxlade Chamberlain for £20m to make my four wingers: Ox, Sterling, Assaidi & Lennon. Also signed Honda on a free transfer (for the extra revenue if anything else) so now I have Honda, Henderson, Gerrard & Shelvey competing for one spot. Thinking of loaning out Shelvey, thus allowing Honda and Hendo to battle for the role and then I'll just bring Gerrard on to the bench when one of them is unavailable. Think I have a shot of the title this season.

      Suarez injured for 4 months, in the mean time Coutinho and Nem cemented the left wing role. Plus Suarez is sh*t though. Neymar is transfer listed. Sold Suarez for 24m, earlier he was in talks with Hull city for 12m WTF!. Sold coates for 20m and bringing Wilson into the first team now. Henderosn scored 8 goals and assisted around 13 playing as a defensive winger.

      Hopefully get Wellington Nem in.

      Wanted Lucas Moura but PSG have him in rotation role and still won't let talk to him for 50million. The prices for players is stupid. I can't talk to any player for less than 30m. Got Lamela in for 40m and Sociedad want 49m for Griezman.

      Anyway loaned out Raheem and Ibe to premier league clubs where they will start most games. Sold Honda for 20m, Gameiro 11m, Agger 10m and Johnson 3m.

      Brought in Sakho 20m, Lamela 40m, Martin Olsson 7.5m.

      Just want Wellington Nem and Benzia now for 50m combined to finish the squad.

      Squad:

      Leno

      Corchia
      Sakho
      Varane
      Schenikov

      Chamberlain
      Lucas
      Lamela
      Shaqiri

      Cavani
      Suarez

      Kelly
      Olsson
      Mavuba
      Sahin
      Willian
      Wellington Nem hopefully
      Van Wolfswinkel

      Need a back up trequartista which is why I'm looking at Benzia. Want Insigne but he's 50m ;D. If anyone knows someone good for that let me know. Could of got Guiseppe Rossi for free but he went to Juve.

      I'm on the simple mode whatever that's called.

      I found the changes to the full game a bit much and couldn't get in to the game until my mate recommended playing the simpler mode without the training, squad registrations etc. until i got the hang of the game a bit more and then switch to the full game mode.

      I haven't switched yet as i'm having too much fun with this save. Once you get a few seasons in with Liverpool and have money it becomes interesting (hence why i rejected Barca and their 100m+ budget).

      For that reason i was able to sell the lieks of Flanno, Robinson etc. for really good money (5m and 7.5m respectively) when they didn't grow much and not have to worry about the homegrown stuff.

      Lucas is my favourite player on the game coincidentally. He is an absolute beast. I always protect him to make sure he plays as many games as possible. Him and Varane.

      My board set up a link with Brighton, too, in the Championship which really helps as i have some really good yougnsters i wanted to loan out and Brighton have a thin squad.

      I'm Soceidad and I think I've found a save to keep me occupied.

      Greizman-Vela-Preto were class the first season. We're in the Europa league as we defended like sh*te.

      Capoue and Corchia in straight away with the 22 million + sales I made.

      Going to try to get a cheap/young attacking midfielder in and be off. Think we can make top 4 no problem now with the changes.

      In India for a few weeks so started a Liverpool save to keep me occupied when everyone's busy during the day.

      Gave us about 20m as I thought that was fair and I've signed  Andre Ayew and Iago Aspas. Playing a 4-4-2 with Sterling and Ayew out wide. Gerrard and Lucas in the middle and Suarez playing a support role with Sturridge leading the line.

      Scored two goals in the last 10 mins against Everton to come back from behind and win 2-1 so a good start! Don't think I'll be able to handle 4 competitions with the squad quality I have though.
