      So, i'll have a new giant it seems in the next season. The now oil-rich Stoke City. It happened very rarely in my saves that a tycoon would take over a team. Exciting times for the Potters it seems. I'm really curious how they will invest the money. Mark Hughes is still their manager.

      We may soon find out if Messi can do it on a cold night in Stoke.

      Happened on mine too, they signed Clyne and Keylor Navas from me for about £80mill in total, signed Negredo for a load too....They finished lower than the previous season.

      In my save they signed so far 7 players for about 108 mil (Lamela, Benteke, Balde Keita, Moreno and Wilson among them). Mark Hughes left them and went to Man Utd, Phillip Cocu is their new coach.

      Btw i won the title in my 3rd season, an incredible fight until the end with Arsenal, finished level on points but had the better goal difference, won the FA Cup and the Europa League (i finished 3rd in my UCL group). A fantastic season after all.




      But what was more baffling was the fact that Balotelli was a huge success this season at Arsenal, i always feared that he would do very well at them after i sold him (for about 28 mil). Scored 32 goals in 31 games for Arsenal in EPL, 22 goals in UCL (they won it) and he received the Golden Boot award too. A beast.

      I signed Stevie for 2.5 mil :D Hopefully i'll have him retire as a champion with us.

      My final Liverpool team before I left lined up like:

      ------------------------------Leno(sk)

      Danilo(fb)----Sahko(stopper)-----Freirtas(CD[re-gen])------Alaba(IWB)

      ----------------Henderson(BBM)---Coutinho(RPM

      Gotze (AP)---------------Isco(Engage)----------------Mempis(RMD)

      ---------------------------Balotelli (Poacher)

      Balo was my best player by miles 40+ goals every season in all comps.

      Now in German D2 with Hamburg haha

      I just signed Alaba too, for 65 mill, and sold Rodriguez to Bayern for 47.5 mil. I always try to keep a positive balance in transfer dealings, or the net spend to be as small as possible. For example this season's net spend was 1 mil, as i bought players for a total of 112 mil and sold for 111 mil :)

      I should have kept Balo though. But my attacking line does great so i can't complain. Lost out on De Bruyne too (signed for Barca), gutted as i'm a fan of him, provides alot of assists and scores too.

      Get Bernardo Silva if you can?

      I want to start a new save now. Might get the new database and start a new Liverpool one.

      Not really too much, like 2-3 hours a day if you know to control yourself :)) I wouldn't advise getting the game very early, wait till some updates come up, because in previous versions there were alot of bugs when the game was released.

      I hope I can get into FM16 because I've struggled to do so this year. Normally I go on it quite a bit and do my first save for like 10 seasons or something but I've barely completed 3 seasons with any team.

      Bernardo Silva, Paul Pogba, Oscar and Youri Tielemens all injured at once. Superb. Oscar was 6 weeks and Bernardo 4-5 months.

      Watch Aboubakar and Lukaku get fu**ed now. Grrrr.

      EDIT: Oh, and add Danilo now. F**k internationals.

      EDIT: Now f**king Avdijaj!!! What a week.

      EDIT: For f**king f**k sake. Now my superstar young regen - who is a CAM - is gone for 6 weeks. Playing terrible regens now in midfield just to make up the numbers.

      Dreadful spell for you mate.

      Calleri last season scored for me 32 goals in 34 games in the league + 16 assists. Fantastic player. Depay, Sterling and Coutinho had average ratings at the end of the season over 7.80 (Sterling had 7.80, Coutinho 7.83 and Depay 7.84, while Calleri had 7.78), truly deadly front 4. Calleri forced me to sell Sturridge (to Stoke for about 12 mil).

      I'm thinking about signing Pogba, would cost me in total 108 mil, i have 140 left in the budget. But Romero and Henderson form a very good partnership in midfield, if i sign Pogba it could mean benching Henderson, who is also my captain. But with Pogba in my team i would have a dream one with Rulli-Carvajal-Mustafi-Bartra-Alaba-Romero-Pogba-Sterling-Coutinho-Depay-Calleri  ;D

      Signed him, but saved just before i confirmed the transfer just in case. With him in the team i noticed i don't play the same offensive football i played with Henderson in his place. So i'll go back and cancel his transfer and i'll think about signing him 1-2 years later.

      You should never drop Henderson. At least in my save he became unreal and valued at 35mill. Wouldn't sell him for anything less than 70.

      Started a new save with LFC Marshall's updated database.

      Won my first 3 matches then had a slump. Recovered now to be equal 3rd and a game in hand to go level 2nd.

      Brought in Aranguiz (CM), Juan Jesus (CB) and Mandanda (GK) in the summer with a ton of youngsters. Let a few like Balotelli, Lovren and Borini go and Markovic will be leaving in January.

      Signed Aboubakar and Sven Bender for the January window.

      Lining up like this:

      Mandanda

      Clyne        Gomez        Sakho         Moreno

      Emre Can

      Henderson      Coutinho      Aranguiz

      Firmino
                         Sturridge

      Had a ton of injuries to Lallana, Milner, Benteke, Can, Benteke, Lucas and a bunch more. They're all just returning now and i have Bender and Aboubakar to fit in as well.

      Haha need someone to replace him! He'll be sold in the summer. Ings, Sturridge, Aboubakar and Firmino up top with Origi comin back from loan.

      Managed to land ter Stegen for £11.5m. Now have Mandanda, Mignolet and ter Stegen. One of the others will be gone too.

      Giovinco was always a decent backup for me but not sure how good he is in the new save

      One season down and finished third in the league after having a late season collapse. Managed to make the Europa final but got crushed by Barca 4-1 thanks to two bullshit goals including a penalty.

      Just finished the transfers and landed Mats Hummels (£38m), Criscito (£14m) and Ayoze Perez (£14m). Signed Tielemens last season but he comes back for his first season now after being loaned back to Anderlecht.

      Squad:

      ter Stegen

      Clyne     Hummels      Sakho     Criscito

      S.Bender

      Henderson    Coutinho    Emre Can

      Aboubakar     Firmino

      Flanagan
      Gomez
      Lucas
      Milner
      Tielemens
      Ings
      Ayoze Perez

      Aranguiz as back up in midfield, Daprela at left back, Juan Jesus at centre back and a few youngsters like Castellano, Passlack and Melkamu at the club receiving tutoring.

      Got Louis Reed, Hachim Mastour and Kristoffer Ajer out on loan along with the youngsters that were already at the club.

      Won my first two games but the game crashed (again) so don't know where it's up to. It was only Villa and Cardiff so that's ok.

      Started a new game with LFCMarshall's latest update (find it to be the best, it's really detailed and nicely done) with Stoke.
      3 games in, 2 wins and a draw.
      Shaqiri/Adam/Shawcross are decent for now, Arnautovic and Butland are beasts.

      Signed Gil Romero for cheap, provides me with good backup option, plus is a future bet seeing the advancing years of Adam and Whelan.


      Let's see how it the game pans out, playing after a long hiatus.

      Haven't played it in a while, lost the game I was playing that pissed me off!

      Started the game as usual as Liverpool, dumped Mignolet to number 2 GK, bought Begovic, dropped Gerrard, played Henderson instead and Ballotelli up top, won the f**king league!!

      Shame it isn't anything like real life really isn't it  :D
