      Sinclair is boss on mine in the first six months anyway.

      Played 7 games (3 starts, 4 sub) and got 5 goals.

      Might be due to the flexible PA.

      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.

      Plamen Illiev is the very cheap option who is decent.

      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.

      Usually as poacher or a complete forward. He's amazing for me. The high number of assists has much to do with the fact I nearly always play him alongside another striker (in the EPL, it has been Khouma Babacar or Jordan Ayew) who are also pretty good strikers.

      Oh well, got Munir, Zivkovic, Sterling and a superstar 20 year old regen i got for free from PSG up front. PSG and Monaco have given me so many amazing players for free or cheap.

      I had a great save with our team, but i decided to stop playing it because i will start a new game (long save) anyway when the new patch comes out.

      Won the Title in my first season using a 4-1-2-1-2 formation who worked very well with my players.

      The lineup was : Mignolet - Lars Bender - Lovren - Skrtel - Moreno - Gerrard - Henderson - Coutinho - Sterling - Balotelli - Sturridge

      Subs : Jones, Lucas Romero, Balanta, Odegaard, Lambert, Markovic, Lallana.

      Players sold : Borini, Toure, Yesil, Glen Johnson, Flanagan, Manquillo loan terminated and Lucas Leiva.

      Players bought : Lars Bender, Balanta, Romero, Odegaard, Ajer, Coric, Dino Halilovic.

      In my second season i sold all the loaned out players (Aspas, Origi, Alberto, Wisdom, Ilori, Coates, Assaidi) + Lallana, Allen, Skrtel, Jones, Lambert, Markovic, Emre Can, Sakho

      I bought : De Bruyne, Danilo, Chiriches and Berahino.

      So my team looked like this : Mignolet - Danilo - Lovren - Balanta - Moreno - Romero - Henderson - Coutinho - De Bruyne - Sterling - Sturridge but i used also a 4-2-2-2 system with Balotelli in place of Henderson.

      Subs : Fulton, Chiriches, Odegaard, Bender, Berahino, Rossiter, Henderson/Balotelli.

      I'm struggling to get into the game and it's frustrating. I was part way through my 2nd season with Liverpool and got sick of racking up numerous injuries every week.

      S. Romero - Flanagan - Murillo - Balanta - Moreno - Lucas - L. Romero - Sterling - Barbosa - Depay - Sturridge

      Byram - Sakho - Can - Odegaard - Coutinho - Markovic - Balotelli

      Think I might just start over again.

      Got a new laptop so naturally put FM on it and started a new save. Went with Udinese this time.

      Not many signings but landed Slavitskiy on a free and Odegaard both coming in January. Only signings at the start were Suso and Jose Maria Gimenez on loan and Fabio Daprela at left back.

      Trying to get a ton of players off the wage bill to hopefully get Pereyra to sign a new contract before he leaves. He is worth £14m out on loan at Juventus so i dont want to lose him for free.

      Soooooo many loans to look at. That relationship between Watford and Granada has a million players all over the shop.

      Was unbeaten in 8 games and top of the league. Now come back to just better than mid table. Bit of a log jam though.

      At the moment I've got:

      ----------------Leno
      Flano------Skrtel----Sahko------Moreno
      ----------------Gerrard

      ----------Henderson---Coutinho

      ---------------Sterling/Depay

      ----------Balo---------Sturridge

      Only really bought in Leno and Depay, both been great buys. Sold Borini and a few others not worth noting. In March and 2nd in the table, Chelsea are 7 points ahead and looking unbeatable.

      Got a new laptop so naturally put FM on it and started a new save. Went with Udinese this time.

      Not many signings but landed Slavitskiy on a free and Odegaard both coming in January. Only signings at the start were Suso and Jose Maria Gimenez on loan and Fabio Daprela at left back.

      Trying to get a ton of players off the wage bill to hopefully get Pereyra to sign a new contract before he leaves. He is worth £14m out on loan at Juventus so i dont want to lose him for free.

      Soooooo many loans to look at. That relationship between Watford and Granada has a million players all over the shop.

      Was unbeaten in 8 games and top of the league. Now come back to just better than mid table. Bit of a log jam though.

      Talking about loans, one weird thing about this FM is that I have had no trouble at all in renewing loans every season.

      In my Blackburn save for example, I got Kurt Zouma (Chelsea) and Angel Correa (Atletico Madrid) on loan in my first season in the EPL. I then managed to renew that loan for one season more, when I then got into the UCL. I thought having made it this far, and with both players progressing fantastically well (Correa led the EPL in assists 2 years in a row), I thought their clubs would want them back - but I was actually able to renew their loans for a 3rd and later 4th seasons! Even after I won the title with Blackburn, Chelsea still let me keep Zouma on loan. I'm currently on Zouma's last year of his contract with Chelsea and hope to sign him on a free... which is a really bizarre situation, as he's been at the club for 4+ years and is my current vice-captain.

      I also kept Ben Davies on loan for 2 or 3 seasons, before finally buying him permanently.

      Think it's a really weird and unrealistic aspect of the game.

      And that's just through choosing the ''propose loan extension''? I have a few lads i wouldn't mind keeping if i can do that.

      I have a DM called Alan from Brazil who is on loan from Granada. He would be superb to keep hold of.

      Started the save yesterday and i'm up to March already. Sittting in a 3 way tie for 4th but its very close from 3rd to 9th or so.
