      Liverpool are too good in this. Which makes it so boring.

      I started a save with Fulham. Wanted a balanced CM, Signed one Vicente from Spain for 500k, what a beast. Their attack is pretty good with Roberts as a future star. CM is a position you need immediate upgrade.
      Signed Dele Alli in Jan window and he scored about 8-9 goals from there. Got promoted and had about 15m to spend. Signed one good striker from Ajax and Horne for GK position. Picked up Pearce on free transfer,and Will Hughes for 9m.

      12-15th finish was the target, created a counter 4-1-4-1 high press tactic. The lucky break was getting Dealufu on loan. He score 11 goals and assisted 9. Beat Arsenal 4-0, got a draw at chelsea. Liverpool finished 2nd, Chelsea won the league, United 3rd and me 4th.

      The table was funny, first Liverpool coming 2nd, of all the saves i had, BR got sacked in his first season, this is the first time i saw him doing well in the game :). City finished 8th  :laugh:.

      Only team i didn't had an answer was United. Their diamond with Two strikers and one AM over ran my defense on both home and away games.

      To anybody with a Liverpool save after a couple of seasons, how well have the likes of Ojo, Canos, Chirivella, Sinclair and Wilson developed? On FM14 the first 4 became quality on my Liverpool save. Hoping they develop to the same quality this year.

      In my Fulham save, only Rossister developed well. Infact he is one of the CM in the game.

      Rossiter develops really well especially after i got Gil Romero tutoring him after a couple loan spells. He's rotated with Ruben Neves for me in the DM position or if i want to play tighter. England first team and all round boss statistics.

      Wilson looked so promising but nothing came of him.

      Ojo is crap.

      Sinclair crap.

      Canos crap.

      Chirivella crap.

      Stay with it guys and just play around with tactics a bunch. Get creative and i think you'll enjoy it more.

      Of course you'll never keep a clean sheet and keepers are trash but that's ok.

      Currently rocking a 3-5-2 formation with defensive wingers. Very different to any tactic I've used before and liking it.

      Just add 20 managers in the game and take over every PL side.

      Pavel Savitskiy or however you spell it is the ultimate signing for any PL side. Especially Burnley et al.

      True. 100k or so at the start. Will rise up to 20m in one season.

      Just in the summer of my second season with Liverpool. Ins: Murillo, Lucas Romero and Barbosa. Outs: Gerrard, B. Jones, Ilori, Coates, Skrtel and Lallana. Anybody know of a decent keeper that won't cost like 40m like Scuffet? :D

      Oblak is alright for me. Think 25m or so.

      Plamen Illiev is the very cheap option who is decent.

      Rulli is very good but needs some protection in front of him.

      Started a game with Blackburn, won the Championship and I'm now in my first season in the EPL, currently in the 5th position. I've assembled a pretty good squad, even though it heavily relies on loanees such as Kurt Zouma (Chelsea) as the heart of my defence and Angel Correa (Atletico Madrid) as my most creative midfielder. Other players on loan include my only decent left back in Ben Davies (Spurs), my striker Babacar (who I've signed permanently on a free from Fiorentina for next season), my regista Montolivo (Milan) and a few other squad players.

      It means that, from my most frequent starting lineup, 5 are players on loan.

      Viviano; Nica, Zouma, Balanta, Davies; Montolivo, Hughes, Correa, Stanciu; Babacar, Rhodes.

      Balanta is a recent January signing; before him, I had Gyomber as a CB - that guy is a must buy for middle sized clubs, one of the best bargains in the game, highly recommended.

      And Rhodes is unreal, truly amazing. If I remember correctly, he already has over 30 goals this season and it's still January. The season before in the Championship, he scored something like 40 goals and made 15+ assists... all of that playing as a Complete Forward. He's a machine.

      This is my latest match... not bad I say:



      Stanciu was playing as a Regista despite being an attacking midfielder (Montolivo is injured) and I had Odegaard (yes, I got him last season by offering crazy wages for a 16 year old :D) starting as AM.

      Rhodes ended the season with 41 Premier League goals, top scorer by far (the second player with most goals had 22). His partner Babacar scored another 21 EPL goals and Angel Correa made 20 assists in the EPL.

      As a result, I finished 3rd in the league. I guess without Rhodes I would have finished 13th.

      Jordan Rhodes in my save so far:

      2014/15: 55 (1) games, 40 goals and 19 assists
      2015/16: 44 games, 47 goals and 14 assists
      2016/17: 54 (3) games, 51 goals and 16 assists

      Unreal. Top scorer of the EPL once again, with 10 goals more than Diego Costa, who finished 2nd in the scoring charts.

      What role did you use him? Sold him after 6 months - he couldn't score a goal to save his life. And i had him in front of a Liverpool midfield.

      Tried him as a poacher, advanced forward, target man and complete forward.
