      Funny you say that as on my Liverpool save he is a monster but with Swindon i got him for free as a 21 year old and kept resigning him on one year contracts whilst loaning him out. Very average at 23 and i'm letting him go because he wont be good enough and he's done nothing at Atalanta.

      But on my Liverpool save, where he actually played during his younger years, he is one of the best wingers in the game.

      God f**king dammit. Why did i wake up early and play this game?

      About to lose the best CDM in the world to Schalke for £24m because of a f**king release clause i couldn't get rid of. He's literally perfect and i got him for £5.5m and he's only 23.

      Lost Gnabry for 5 weeks. Lost my first choice right winger (regen wizard) for a month.

      Beat the Mancs 4-0 though :D

      I'm closing this game and going to uni. Bullshit.

      I'm looking at players to sign who are younger than 18 so they become club home grown and my scout came back with his name. I want to sign him but I have 4 really young but really good wingers in A. Zivkovic, Malcom, Embolo and B. Silva so he won't get into my team even in 3 or 4 years so I think I'm going to leave it.

      Release clauses are killers on this game. At the end of last season Man United, Real Madrid and a few other clubs came sniffing around Barbosa and Bernardo Silva who had 65m release clauses, they both still had 4 years left of 5 year contracts but gave them wage rises anyway and took out their release clauses. I can't wait until I get later into the game when regens come to the forefront.

      Which CDM?

      I gave up Can to PSG for 45mil. because he was causing disquiet and their offer was 3mil more than his release clause. Got Romero, Lucas (for now) and a very good regen (don't remember name). Plus 45mil. was too good to turn down for an unhappy player. :D

      How predictable. Crouchie and his regens :D

      I opted for Carvajal over Corchia. He cost a fair whack but I've got enough players I'm relying on to develop atm. I've sold Alderweireld and Trippier since due to having a few younger defenders I want to utilise. I save £125k a week in wages and got 31m for the pair.
       
      Starting 11: Lloris, Carvajal, Stones, Vertonghen, Rose, Dier, Alli, B.Silva, Eriksen, Malcom, Barbosa.
      Bench: Mammana, Haidara, Maia, Tielemans, A.Zivkovic, Embolo, R.Zivkovic

      Finally finished my first season - think you guys have gone through several in the same time! Very happy with a 2nd placed finish and automatic promotion.

      Already done some business with the 21.5m Mr Cellino has given me for the first Premiership season. Scoured the transfer list and have picked up Mousa Dembele (the spurs cm) for 2.5m + add ons, Riviere from the Geordies for 650k and probably Berisha the GK from Lazio for 1.8m. Also signed a striker called Walter from Porto for 5m, got some good stats so hope he does the business!

      Really need that extra quality, or I'm going straight back down!

      The one Stoke stole off me just scored 4 against me in a 4-1 win. He scored a hat trick last time, too :'(

      I'm in 4th though! Just past January and its pretty tight behind the top two (Arsenal and Chelsea). Nearly a half dozen clubs chasing the top four.

      Liverpool had Klopp, then Simeone and now have Guardiola as boss. Tanked them 4-1 though.

      Crouchie you seem to be the regen virtuoso, do you know when they appear and how best to get your scouts to search for them?

      I always have a scout in each major country and then scouts searching every continental region.

      Got a scout in England, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, Brazil, Argentina, Portugal, Belgium and then one scout in every region you can select including Africa and Oceania etc.

      I keep them all on ongoing and to search for no less than 3.5 star potential.

      Each nation has a different date for regens spawning in youth academies. You can find them online. From memory, Spain's is the earliest in a season from the major leagues. They are around September time.

      Cheers for the info mate. My scouts are a bit crap and I only have 4 at the moment so I need to expand the staff I think :D

      Going to use any leftover transfer/wage budget to improve the coaches and scouts at the club, no point having promising youngsters if I don't have the coaches to train em up!

      First time i've ever been disappointed that i'm getting a takeover approach. I love my owners :D They always propose improvements and give me buckets of money!

      4th with 5 games to go. 4 points clear of 5th.

      Champions League here we come!

      Signed two regens already + Borja San Emeterio (for a second time in this save).

      This lad for £19.75m:



      And this one for £11.75m:

      That's right, Spain is sometime in September/October I think and England in March.

      Expand your youth categories and as Crouchie mentioned, hire good scouts and make them cover the main footballing nations as well as lesser ones in Europe. (Croatia has produced some excellent regens for me in the past)

      Just signed 5 regens Viktoria Pilzen for £4m combined :D Look pretty good for 16/17 year olds. Sh*t thing about playing a save with no youth success at all is you never get any good ones coming through the academy and have to scout them.

      Through the group stages in the UCL. Had Real Madrid, Schalke (who are very good in this save. Best two strikers in the world on their books) and Ajax. Top of the table with a home game against Madrid left to seal top spot.

      Struggling in the league though. Squad isn't quite ready to handle all competitions so far and it's showing.

      Have my midfield and especially CDM sorted for the next few years. Grujic, Romero, Riechedly Bazoer all looking good.
      A regen Dickson Dumaka is just 17 and mark my words, he will be in my first team contention in about a season or two.

      Have another regen whose first name starts with "OhGod". :D

      Fourth in the league though. Slowly creeping up the ladder.

      Still lagging behind you guys, only into my second season with Leeds. Surprised myself with how we've done, I'm in the middle of December and will stay top if I draw or beat Chelsea in the next game. Pretty happy with my lineup atm.

      Begovic (loan)
      Sam Byram
      Subotic (3.7m)
      Liam Cooper
      Charlie Taylor
      Lewis Cook
      Alex Mowatt
      Mousa Dembele (3m)
      Zivkovic (free)
      Stuart Dallas
      Walter (5m)

      Zivkovic is has one of the highest average rating in the league, and Walter is top scorer with 13 from 10. Been very lucky with injuries, right up til the point Begovic just got injured for 4 months while on international duty...

      Need a good young CB, any recommendations lads?

      Ahh I was so close to signing him in the summer but it fell through over bloody wage demands! He had a 5.2m release clause but has since signed a new contract so isn't gonna come cheap!
