Post your 'Need a __ positioned player for ____ and my budget is _____' questions here. Hopefully this will stop this area being clogged up by threads about this, and this may promote better discussion.

Need a CAM for Villarreal and I have around £4m to play with. He doesn't need to be a first team player, really just someone who can step in and do a job.

Nice thread, by the way, Dizzster.

Have you tried Antoine Devaux? Not best stats in the world but I play a regular AMC and he does a nice back up job for me. Could be pretty cheap as well.

Granero at Real Madrid? I signed him for a £1.4m loan in season 1 and got him properly for £3.5m in season 2.

Alternatively, Bressan is available for around £1m. In one of my games Villareal got him for that, sold him the season after for over £6m.

Cheers for the suggestions lads. I'll look at both of the suggestions but probably won't need both, if any as I've managed to increase my transfer budget and have had bids for Landon Donavon and Renata Augusto accepted.

Antoine Devaux I put a scout report on him from three different scouts and they all say he isn't good enough, so I didn't bother making an offer for him.

Fernando Canesin Matos All my scouts reported back saying he has the potenial to be a quality player, I've made an offer but there is a few clubs after him so not confident I will get him.

Granero Seems Madrid don't want to let him go, they've rejected numerous offers from me for just a loan deal and are wanting £12m for him. Definitely not going to make another offer for him.

Bressan Like Matos my scouts are raving about him and I've made an enquiry into how much they are wanting from him. Hopefully we get him on the cheap as he looks a cracker of a payer.

Cheers again for the feedback.

Waffelz: Not sure how he is on this version but on my C&C last year Chris Malonga did well. He played for Sporting in Spain before he retired in 2021 and seemed to score. Primarily a winger, though.

Waffelz
06-11-2011, 08:54 PM
Managed to sign Fernando Canesin Matos which is good as he looks like he could be a cracker of a player. Bressan on the other hand wanted £30k a week and wouldn't Negotiate so I told him to fuck off :)

06-11-2011, 08:58 PM
Waffelz, here's a few.

Cidinho, can get him on loan.

Ifet Taljevic is available on a free.

Levan Kenia is avilable on a loan from Schalke. He looks really promising. Be wary of his natural fitness though.

Hey guys,

Playing with United and need some ideas for my left / right backs. I sold Evra at the end of 1st season which in hindsight was probably a mistake but he is getting on a bit. And I've just sold Rafael to Chelsea for 16.5m (went down a treat with the fans lol).

Right now I'd start with Digne at LB and Vrsaljko at RB. Fabio can cover both slots and Smalling could play at RB if needed. They've all had enough games to convince me and I think I need somebody older with some quality. (Smalling better in the centre too).

Budget isn't an issue I've got loads to spend. Van der Wiel worth signing?

BjornZ
07-11-2011, 09:22 PM
Van der Wiel is pretty good, he could be worth it, as he is also young.

Make sure to check out Sebastien Corchia of FC Sochaux, he is really really good.

For a rather cheap option without too much potential, but good enough as back-up, look for Tony Jantschke.

Other than that, I've got some problems with finding good backs too.

Simon244
07-11-2011, 09:30 PM
Ajax wanted £28m! I'm sure I could have got that down a fair bit but no way will I be paying that much.

Gutted about Corchia he looks great but Everton just signed him and for only £9.5m. I'm still gonna try and see what they say with a bid but it's highly unlikely they will entertain an offer lol.

NickT
07-11-2011, 09:30 PM
I've signed Baines to replace Evra, does a good job.

Simon244
07-11-2011, 09:49 PM
Signed Salvatore Bocchetti from Rubin Kazan. Was recommended in a backroom meeting and cost me £13.5m not too bad. Looks nice stats wise. May slightly prefer centre back but looks pretty accomplished to play at LB too.

08-11-2011, 03:25 AM
Have a look at Garry Bocaly for RB, I don't know how much he'd cost at the start (I'm guessing not a lot) and he's been a key player for me for 3 seasons now, including winning the league and CL, and he's forced his way into the France squad. Only young too, I think he's 23 at the beginning.

Been trying to sign Cesar Azpilicueta as he looks really good but Marseille won't accept for anything less than £40m which I refuse to pay as that's just ridiculous.

Tottenham practically gave me Kyle Walker, and while I'm not sure how he develops in every game, he has owned the RB spot for me - plus, he's English and helps offset all the Brazilians on my squad.

Simon244
08-11-2011, 08:22 PM
He's at Fulham in my game. I've no real options it seems lol. I've got Smalling / Vrsaljko who can play RB, Digne / Brocchetti who can play LB and Fabio who can play either. That's gonna have to do til January I think.

I have Baines and he's amazing but he plays left mid for me. My biggest suggestion, if you have €19M to spend (which you probably do), get Balzaretti from Palermo. Great at defending, attacking, physical and mental attributes! Only draw-back, he is already 29 at the start of the game.

I have just finished my first season in my journey man career and i have taken West Ham back to the Premiership via the playoffs. I must be doing something right as I have also been given the job as manager of team GB at the Olympics..

Anyway to my point, West Ham have a lot of players on there books with big salaries, Gary O'Neill for example is on 40k a week. But no1 will even touch him when i offer him on a free transfer? Any advice?

Also I have a budget of £7M And i want to make sure West Ham survive with ease next year. Any advice on potential bargains would be greatly appreciated..

I have already agreed to re-sign Matthew Upson and Chris Kirkland (backup & competition to Green) on frees..

Michael Owen is also on a free, is he worth the gamble?

09-11-2011, 06:35 AM
Its a tricky one really, as I had the best defence and always felt like I would score but at the same time I felt like i conceded to many and I didnt score enough if that makes sence?

The I felt like the team was just good enough for the Championship but not for the EPL?!?

Lara
09-11-2011, 06:54 AM
One of the first things I would do is to check the clubs that were relegated from the EPL. You should be able to find some suitable players that are probably begging to leave.

And since you don't have to a huge transfer budget I'd suggest checking some of the Norwegian clubs. They are loaded with talent this year you can pick up cheaply. Tromso, Molde and especially Rosenborg have some young players you can get on loan or cheap transfers that would suit a bottom Prem team.

Like your save, I finished 2nd in league and won promotion in our first season with Leeds. The deals I've done are; Corluka for 3.4m, Digne for 1.9m, Cigarini ( He's a rock ) for 1.9m, Saviola for 500,000, but the best buy was Shawcross for 2m up front & 11m more over 48 months, he has been outstanding!!

Nimreitz
10-11-2011, 09:26 AM
Alright, I'll probably have about 10m here in the summer of 2014 and I need a striker. All but established superstars will probably come to my team. The rub is that I need someone who can do more than score, he has to assist and run with the ball well. I've been using Jong Tae-Se who has been very good for me and I won the UEFA Cup with him as my lone striker (I'm Gladbach btw) in 2013. However it has now become clear that he's the weak link in my attack (Reus-Ljalic-Verratti-Jali) and needs to be upgraded. I have Sanogo on loan from City, but he's not the type of player I'm after and doesn't quite fit in. I would imagine Neymar is the prototype of what I'm looking for, but there's no way I can afford him. Thoughts?

Oh, and height would help too as he'll get a few crosses, but they actually don't happen all that often as my wingers usually go for goal instead of cross, and my fullback crosses that get into the box seem to find feet.

Have you considered Dame N'Doye, Nimreitz?

Without breaking the bank I don't know if your going to find a player who has everything you're looking for, but N'Doye certainly seems to come close if I understand your requirements.

He's got good physical strength, decent pace, can finish with feet or head as well as teamwork, off the ball, technique and passing and would probably be available for under £5m

He's at Lyon, but he's actually about the same in quality (and age) as Jong Tae-Se who I'm looking to replace, so he wouldn't work. This is tough.

To the guy looking for a left back; have a look at Lee Wallace at Rangers. Shouldn't cost too much and develops very well.

To the guy looking for a right back; look for Romario in the Brazilian league. Only a kid at the start but is good enough to play first team football for any side within a year.

To the guys looking for a striker; have a look at Milan Djuric. Nabbed him in Summer 2012 for 1.4m and he's worth easily quintuple that.

Just a suggestion to make this thread a bit more efficient. If offering a reply or recommending a player; ideally can you either quote the post, or if not, add the users name in bold at the start of the post. I know some of you already are, but it will just make information easier to find for those looking for answers and for those just browsing the threads it provides a bit of information about the price of the player and the teams he will go to.

Thank you.

My scouts in Juventus keep praising Douglas from Twente, but i don't have any experience with him. His stats look well though, and he should fit the price (more than that) and i'm pretty certain he would gladly join Tottenham.

You could also try going for Criscito from Zenit, but i doubt you can attract him in the first season. Looking at Manga, as already mentioned above, could also be an opportunity :)

EDIT:

Juventus - first season. Am stuck between Astori and Vertonghen. Who should i get? If my scouts are correct, Astori will be a little cheaper, and he seems like a better defender and have more in natural fitness and some of the mental stats. Vetonghen though, seems to be a little better when it comes to possession.. They are both 24

Shawcross hands down. Can do the job for many many seasons, Then you could just profit off him when you are ready to get a new one. You should be able to get him for 20m USD.

therebehounds
12-11-2011, 04:25 PM
olllie - They're all around £15m. Hummels is brilliant if you don't mind a lack of pace (which I do), Cahill's more technically sound, and Shawcross is a well-rounded physical defender. If you want someone to start moves from the back, Cahill or Hummels. If it's a good old-fashioned English CB you want, then Shawcross. He chips in with a few goals from corners too.

Just started a game as Newcastle, and all my wide players except Jonas got broke in the same reserve match. Fucking Darlington... :panda:

So a cheapish, fast right winger who can take players on and score a few, budget £5-7m, and someone who can get a work permit for preference. That or a solid RM for the same money, for a switch to 4-4-1-1.

Third season as Leicester City, January window and I've had two bids accepted for him, rather large bids, and both times he'll hear out my contract offers...but then laugh at me and cancel negotiations. :nono:

Window is almost closed now and I may try one more time, though I may also just wait until next season. I'm in the knock-out section of Champs League play so the club rep should improve some by then and he may not be so dismissive.

Carlos Fierro looks like a far better prospect than Torres for me.

Pretty similar in most stats, but Fierro has a slightly higher work rate and determination, while he's also a year younger, cheaper to buy, demands less wages, and he's much easier to keep happy by the looks of things.

I actually have Carlos Fierro on my roster, but in my game he's a definite class below Torres. Torres is 18/18 pace/acc, while Fierro is 15/15. Torres' finishing and composure is 17/16, Fierro's is 12/13.

Some of that is no doubt my fault, as I didn't play Fierro often and no one would take him on loan, even with me paying his wages. :sorry:

Hopefully by 2020 he'll be that good for me, too! He's just a pup on my game, on the cusp of 2014.

Carlos Fierro is a monster. One of the scouts in my Norwich game recommended him and I signed him for £4.5m a couple of seasons in. I'm now in 2020, he's scored somewhere between 250-300 goals for me and is worth over £30m.

I haven't managed anyone else in this version yet but I'd fancy he's one of the best strikers in the game. An absolute must buy.

John

I picked him up on a free at the end of the first season for Rangers. He's largely been a backup, coming off the bench and playing the odd game here and there, but a long term injury to Milan Djuric has meant he's been getting a run as my first choice centre forward.

Since then he's knocked in nine goals in eight games. I can see him turning into quite a striker.

Better than Aaron Ramsey? That's a pretty short list. Marek Hamsik is probably my favorite, then Axel Witsel and Andre Ayew.

Help! I need somebody...

Ok so i'm about to wrap up season 1 with Inter, i will have aprox. 60 million to spend and i don't mind spending all of it because i'm looking for quality.

I need a left winger, right winger and a right back. I have a huge dilemma :

- right winger : Marco Reus or Giuliano or somebody else ?

Reus will be relegated with Gladbach and will be available for around 15 mil but i am worried about his 11 in crossing and passing. Giuliano looks tons better but can he actually deliver on the right wing since he is natural at AMC.

- left winger : Hulk for 25 million or somebody else ?

Hulk ? Absolutely would sign him, who wouldn't sign that beast but my scout says he is best at right wing ? WTF, since when. Hazard is priced at 50 million, Gotze is unavailable and Bale would join for about 35 million but a Welshman in Italia ? Hmm

- right back : Vrsaljko or Corchia or somebody else ?

I don't know who is better honestly on this version between Vrsaljko and Corchia and both are priced about 10 million. Is there anyone better for that kind of money or perhaps a few million more ?

I'm having this huge dilemma and i really hope someone that had experience with these guys can help out.

I don't think it matters where Hulk plays...he'll still dominate. I just finished a match at City of Manchester Stadium where Hulk now plys his trade. Hulk is hugging the right sideline, closely shadowed by my Frank Tabanou. Hulk fires a cross toward an onrushing Dzeko that Sergio Asenjo tips into the air, toward the left sideline. Kyle Walker readies himself to control the rebound but he can't. Why not? Because Hulk has already run all the way from the opposite sideline to tackle his own rebound away from the defender.

Fucking infuriating. Buy him.

Thanks for that Frostbite. I scouted Hulk again and found out he is available for 20 million so i couldn't pass on that. Only 20 million for Hulk ! :checkit:

But it also means i can't now sign anyone else that isn't a EU national due to Serie A rules so no Giuliano or Vrsaljko for me then.

Juventus, 2nd season. They'll play at the left. Hazard is more expensive and with higher wage demands. Danny has better mental stats, but Hazard is seven years younger and a little bit faster

Carlos Fierro looks like a far better prospect than Torres for me.

Pretty similar in most stats, but Fierro has a slightly higher work rate and determination, while he's also a year younger, cheaper to buy, demands less wages, and he's much easier to keep happy by the looks of things.

He does look a slight class below, but he's also on loan in Cyprus right now and I can probably get him for under 3m Euros (Torres ran Liverpool 10m). Great tip.

Hazard, absolutely. Mental stats can be improved with age. Hazard has age on his side, and he's one of the best young players in the game. He's absolutely worth paying extra fee and wages for.

Hi, I'm looking for a top striker, for now more than £2m who has decent attributes in: pace, dribbling, technique, acceleration, off the ball and finishing.

Any suggestions?
I'm playing 3 up front with Liverpool, but both Suarez and Bellamy are injured for months and have Carrol, Kuyt and Ecclestone up front at the moment!

Also, has anyone managed to sign Tevez? City seem to just write him off (not even registered with them), but they want £24m just to LOAN him! :sorry:

Hi all,

I am after one final player for my Arsenal squad. I need cover at AML/R and ideally would like one player who can play across both positions.

I am willing to spend up to about £15mil. I have been looking at the likes of Reus, Augusto or Marin but I am slightly worried about their physical stats, strength and natural fitness etc etc.

Welcome any thoughts??!!

Cheers all

PS - I should add Benayoun has broken his leg and I am using Walcott as a striker so only really left with Arshavin, Gervinho and then the likes of Chamberlain and Miyaichi...

Lucas Digne is a starting left back for me at Inter since start of the game. I had only Nagatomo as a left back at club so i got Digne at start and i must tell you not one month passed without him getting 2-3 attributes up. At the end of the season in the ass man report about players training over the year, Digne was in the top 3.

I used him as a starter on FM11 too even though he was 16 only yet i was amazed that he played so well like he was 5 years or so older. At FM12 he has a 4 star rating compared to Nagatomo for me which is quite good considering Nagatomo has been chased by Bayern every transfer window.

So i should say get Digne mate, he hugs the line and can deliver some sweet crosses in the box too, he is consistent and fit to play back to back games if needed.

Just started a new game as Brighton in the Championship. Decided to play a 4-2-3-1 formation (I know, yawn) but I have no decent AMC to pull the strings. I’m looking for a player that could act as an advanced playmaker or trequartista, so good passing, creativity and flair are obviously required.

I have about £2m to spend and, preferably, would like them to be young so that should I get promoted can grow into a Premier League quality player.
I’ve tried buying Mateo Kovacic but don’t have enough money and had an offer accepted for Marco Verratti but it got cancelled as he got injured.

Thoughts?

I'd say definitely try for Cavani. He went to Spurs on one of my games and averaged over a goal a game for a few seasons, looks a very good player.

I'm looking for an AMC for Stoke, first season. About £5m, willing to pay more in installments if necessary. I've got a couple of younger players for the position but they've still got a bit of a way to go, I'd really like someone established to come in and play straight away.

Try Seydou Doumbia from CSKA Moscow i have him for Bayern Munich side and he score a silly amount of goals. Ive tried him and Damaio out and personally i think Doumbia is better than Damaio. Doumbia doesnt really have any weakenesses he is big, fast, strong and a good finisher. I highly recommend him he's blitzing goal charts for me. Cavani ive yet to try him in this version but if he is anything like the last one he will be a goal machine.

Hey folks,a couple of requests for my Dortmund side.
Seba Kehl is my skipper and the anchor in my midfield.
However I struggle to get more than 60/70 mins per game from him,aside from training on his fitness,any recomended replacements for him within a 8-10m budget?

Also,if money were no object which of the following do I need?
Marin,Schurrle, or Reus?
I play a variety of Shrews pink panther and the best spell I had using it was at hibs where I had an ST flanked by AMR/ST and AML/ST either side. I'm looking to recreate that with BVB.

Pokerface
01-12-2011, 06:19 PM
Replacements for Kehl could be Annan, Sven's brother Lars or Casemiro.

As for Marin, Schurrle, or Reus, I've actually have just spent a pretty penny on Schurrle and he's performing well both down the left flank and up front if needs be. He's far more direct than the other two, but if money is no object I'd opt for Marin. Definitely the most talented. Reus would probably be the cheapest, and he's an ever present for Gladbach in my save a couple of years down the line.

bryan
01-12-2011, 06:35 PM
Thanks pokerface
I have Sven still but he has a long term injury.
I'll scout Lars,Casemiro and I take it that's Anthony Annan?
Yeh Marin is the one I'd love,just don't know if I could afford him.
Reus looks good too,just not sure he'd be one I could retrain to an AML/ST?
I seen your posts on Schurrle in the German thread and I've scouted him and am impressed. I think it will be Marin>Schurrle>Reus.
Any other suggestions for that spot?

Thing is i have Paloschi and Sanogo already and i intend to have them as a strike force but i need 1 more good target man striker if Paloschi gets injured and until Sanogo can play.

Even better if you could think of somebody to just be loaned out for 12 months as i already have future targets in mind and don't wanna spend needlessly.

I tried to loan Lukaku, Pavlychenko, Niang and no dice. Fierro don't wanna come yet.

If you were challanging for all the major honours would you sign this guy as a back up defender and hopefully starter in a season or two? for £6m.

His lack of concentration is a problem and his high aggression may mean he will get sent off a lot.

Hi im looking for a striker, i play an advanced forward, in the championship 2nd season, no more than 400k. I was ideally after Billy Sharp after Doncaster were relegated but they want £1m. I oly play 1 upfront so its important hes consistantly a goal threat, and ideally some sort of pace.

I had Afobe on loan 1st season in L1 but he doesnt seem intrested in a second season and United (despite being my feeder club) want money to loan a striker!!!

Back up defender. :nono:

Witness the marking attribute and get on your knees son. I've had him for two years now, he's improving daily, his average performance has been at a rating of 7.3, and he hasn't been sent off once. Madrid, Milan and the like have been sniffing around, but he's going nowhere. For what it's worth his concentration is now at 13 aged 24.

He rejected me and went to Sevilla :nono: He got injured for a couple of months after two games.

I can't recommend him enough. I signed him for £9,750,000 in the first season and sold him for £45,000,000 after four seasons to Real. Throughout he was ever present and performed so, so well.

Looking for a prem standard ball winning mid type, solid presence to provide shield for verratti. Entering third season as Huddersfield looking to spend around 2-5m pounds, wage demands can't be excessive due to board giving me a very restrictive max wage.

I was about to start a Liverpool save until i looked at the squad, i will struggle to put a team out using my 4-1-2-2-1 tactic.

I need a couple of centre mids and a spare dm, plus a backup striker and dr.

Is their anyone in the team saleable to bring in some much needed transfer money? if not, any good freebies or loans available?

Cheers

Why would you need a DR with Johnson and Kelly, plus Carragher and Flanagan who can play there as a secondary position?

EDIT: 4 cms = Adam, Lucas (who still turns into a beast), Gerrard and Hendo.

Agreed needing a back-up striker and dms.

I think if you're playing a 41221 then you can sell Kuyt and get some money in. Of course you don't want wingers you could chance it and see if you can sell Downing in the Jan window. 1 up front, Suarez, Kuyt, Carroll and Bellamy are good enough to see you to January or even the end of the season and the next transfer budget.

IMO the squad is good enough to make Champions League football first season, and then improve from there.

You could get Mahamadou Diarra on a free for DMC, and Hesselink for a striker (I think) on frees.

Not sure about loans.

What I tend to do, is sell Skrtel for double his value as there are plenty of CBs at the club. Which should give you about £10M+.

Oh and sell Aurelio if I can, only because this means Robinson can be played more often until he becomes the best English LB.

who should i buy for QPR 2nd season? current position is 7th (feb2012)

GK: Ochoa can't get work permit. preferably age around 23-27.

DR: young is too old. Should i blown my transfer record on kyle walker?

DL: traore doing well but more goals conceded through crossing from his side. any cheap reliable player?

this season, i bought Kadlec (played all matches so far and score more than that) never had chance to buy him in 2011. arsenal,inter or real snatch him early.

shawcross in jan (extra budget). grab afellay, barca offered half his value but have to max my wage & agent limit to compete with chelsea. sold swp to spurs and replace with schelotto on last day due to barton unhappy with swp transfer.

Kara for DM/MC. I think every single person in the Italian thread is using him, me included. He can play DC too.

Bandalovski is a great bargain DR. Probably the find of the scouting section this version of FM. http://thedugout.net/content/players/item,91,19,1,Ivan_Bandalovski.html

Any ideas for a left winger for PSG? Middle of the first season, but Nene's been an absolute wanker since I started, and I'm now sick of him complaining all the time about team talks and rotation and all sorts.

Went a bit mad buying Nainggolan, so I'll only have money garnered from selling the aforementioned Brazilian prick. 8-9 million I'm thinking.

Hi Wayno, welcome aboard. If you're after Champions League standard on the cheap...

GK: Deola (Palmeiras)... if fact there's a few decent Brazilians. That, or look at relegated clubs.

CB: If Kara's still half cheap, snap him up for here and DM. Or else more Brazilians including Rhodolfo (Sao Paulo) and Rever (Mineiro), Kader Mangane or Bruno Alves (he generally asks to leave Zenit about then in my games).

RB: Bandalovski's a steal if he's still cheap. Or else try Vrsaljko, Romario, or Matthias Johansson (Kalmar FF).

DM: Kara (legend), Ignjovski depending on price, Garmash and Rybalka (Dynamo Kyiv).

Around that time there should be at least one bargain of a striker who's fallen out with their manager. Previous favourites have been Nilmar, Bojan and Papiss Cisse. There've been a stack of young Mexicans mentioned on this thread who'd fit the bill too.

I need one for each side, and preferably even one who if pushed could play on either side. I have not got much more than a couple of million for the lot though...

Also, I'm playing with a libero at the back - does anyone have any recomended people for this position? Nelson Rivas is doing a passable job at the moment, but I'd prefer someone a bit more suited to this role.

Problem I'm having is that very few players who would make it into my first team actually want to come to Moscow... If he's Russian that would be a HUGE bonus given the foreign player restrictions in Russia. All Russian-born CMs that I've found however are playing for rival teams and players in Russia seem to be oddly loyal to their clubs.

James Ridriguez maybe from FC Porto? Cost me 5.5M and his stats are very good! He is better on the left wing, but since Bale is my absolute god on that side of the pitch, I usually bring Rodriguez on in the second half for Bale or Modric/VdV. Although VdV might be injured from time to time, he still gives assist like hell! First season 23 in total, this season 20 or something. Especially free kicks to the far post with my defenders heading it in(Otamendi/Shawcross).

I really need a striker for my Tottenham side, and I am willing to splash the cash on him! Defoe stays for another year, but he is not what he used to be. More injuries now, with Sanogo coming back from injuries and Pavlyuchenko leaving I have nobody left! Only Hulk, but he seems to do way better on the right side as and Inside Forward. What to do? I really want Damiao, but my scout somehow rate him as 3* and no matter what I do, I just can't seem to unsettle him. Probably will cost me 50M? Javier Hernandez could be bought for 34M, and he is really good in this game, but I'm not gonna give him and his agent 12.5M in bonusses and a salary of 140k...

So what to do? Maybe Cavani? Or should I rely on Coulibaly as he now turned 18 and scored 31 in 23 last season in the youth/reserve leagues?:sorry:

Cheers mate, I'll take a look at him in a second. I like the sound of the cheap price tag too.

I bought Damiao near the start of the first season, he's performing pretty well, averaging a goal a game. I play a 433 with him as my main goal scorer though, so if he wasn't scoring averaging a goal a game, I'd be worried. He's a good player, but I'd say Cavani out classes him at the start of the game.

A player I've always wanted to sign but haven't gotten round to is Abel Hernandez. His stats are good, he'll cost about 20 million probably but he's a consistent performer which should mean he'll be scoring a lot of goals for you. I remember on one of the old FM's, a guy called Federico Laurito being the best striker in the game later on due to his consistency. also like the look of Doumbia, should be able to pick him up for around 20 million too

Would you sign Veleso for £9m?

Is he has amazing as he used to be on FM. His determination is only 10. I rarely buy players with lower determination than 13.

Or is Marvin Martin is a better option? he would go for £12m

Its for Napoli.

How about Muniesa? Got him on a free after one season I believe(not sure!), and he's been quite good so far. Not amazing, but LB's are hard to find... In FM2011 I had Diego Renan and DAMN, he was amazing. But too bad he isn't in 12 :(

I've loaned him and i hope after one season i'll sign him.

Started a game with my beloved port Vale but as the game is so realistic I have no tranfer budget and not a lot to play with wages wise!

So I am dipping into the loan market but everyone keeps turning me down.

Any cheap loan/free transfer reccomendations?

cheers guys

Does anyone have any suggestions for a striker for Saints in the first season? Got around £1m to spend. Got LuaLua on a free, but no backup, Lambert doesn't really work with my tactic at the moment.

why not go for Otamendi, Shawcross or Papadopoulos? I doubt whether the latter will be there from the start for the first XI, but the former will be there for sure. Otamendi cost me 10M and Shawcross 15M halfway through first season, they have been great for me for the last couple of seasons. Paying 20-25 million for Vermaelen while for the same money you could have both? I'd know what I would do, for sure..:thbgrin:

Papadopoulos was a possible signing for my Arsenal side. I signed Gary Cahill from Bolton for just under 10million and he and Vermalen have been amazing. ive only let in 17 goals with 5 games of the season left.

Try Gareth Bale or Fabio Coentrao. Can retrain them to be awesome fullbacks.

Don't go for Bale, placing him DL is a waste of his amazing talent playing as a AML/W. Is Vrsaljko also confident with playing on the left side? As a DR he is great, just moves to Chelsea in my game for 21M euro. :thbgrin:

If you could get Hazard for the left wing? Why not play him at left back, you won't find a better left back to be honest.

I'm going to start what i hope will be a long term game with West Ham, but i want to do so without spending ridiculous amounts of money year after year.

So i want to take advantage of freebies and cheap loan players as much as possible, in season 1 West Ham are short of a good LB and AML plus a pacey striker, does anyone know of any potential stars i could pick up on the cheap for these positions?

Also, if anyone knows of any players who usually end up very cheap/on loan/free in season 2 i'd appreciate it. :thbup:

how is that a waste of talent, in all my tactics attacking fullbacks are crucial and bale would be exceptional for that. fullbacks are also in my opinion harder to find than wingers. while he could be a better wing than fullback, hes probably rarer as a fullback than a winger

Decided to start a Spurs save as I haven't played in England on this version.

Adebayor is the boy, banging them in for fun. However he's only on loan and I'll be bollocksed if I'm paying those daft wages to keep him on full-time. So I'm looking at either Cavani or Damiao to fill the gap. I've seen Cavani in previous saves and he looks the best option but loads of people rave about this Damiao bloke.

So, which one? Or any others? Probably £30m max. to spend.

from past experience cavani is just a machine if in right sytem wih top players like spurs can easily score enough goals alone to win a league

Need some help big time i managed to get Huddersfield into Championship first season and in second season i managed to survive relegation just about.

Thankfully the chairman injected £11 mill into club so have £14 mill transfer to spend to get me from Championship to Premiership.

So in 2013 i need to have clear out as my squad is getting on i need new MC, DMC, 2x DC, DL and DR, AML, AMR,

I been trying to sign a few players had bids accepted but all seem to be currently not interested in signing contract any ideas?

I've bought Cavani at the start of 3rd season an he has banged in 32 goals up until april, but he does seem to have droughts of 7 games without scoring. Something with my tactics probably, but how can I get him to perform consistently? As you said, statwise and previouw experiences prove that he is a very good and talented striker. I have Bale on AML, Hulk om AMR, Cavani as a lone striker and behind him James Rodriguez, Modric or Van der Vaart. Should be enough, right? :sorry:

Right, this is going to be pretty vague and I apologise in advance.

I've just started a game with Napoli for the very first time, they look to have a quite a strong team but are lacking a bit in depth.

I've got about 7m to play with and I'm looking for some backup players who could do a trick for me. I'm looking at Kara already to bolster the midfield, any ideas on a decent, cheap backup defender?

16-01-2012, 12:39 PM
Dede. Nice Brazilian defender, good for a backup. He's no Nemanja Vidic, but think of him like a Wes Brown or something, haha.

SHould be able to get him for 5mil dollars (dunno how much that is in pounds or w/e currency u're using)

I'm currently playing with Napoli. 5 seasons in. One man I got every season on loan. Danny Wilson. Liverpool don't even want a fee for the first 3 seasons :cab:

I mainly went for loan players in the first season.

Cheers man, didn't sign anybody during the first transfer window and I'm sitting second as of January 1st, so I'm fairly happy, but I still need some squad depth.

I'll certainly take a look at Wilson, being a Rangers fan I've always thought highly of him anyway.

Just getting my BVB game going again, Papa chose Juve over us,I then sent my scouts out and they can back with Jean- Armel Kana-Biyik.
Originally at Rennes,he was playing for Ajax (they sold Vertonghen and Alderweireld in 2012) and he cost me just £8m.

It might actually be worth taking a look at Ben Amos in the Man Utd reserve side , he's not world class but he's good when he needs to be and you may be able to pick him up for free.

Resurrected my PSG save, just starting the second season and want to strengthen for the Champions League. The main hole in the side is left back. About £15m to spend.

My ideal target would be Aly Cissokho, but OL wouldn't even think about selling him to me, after we bitch-slapped them into fourth in L1 last year. Looking for a top-class replacement for Tiene, with good passing, physical and defensive stats, who can hug the left touchline. Age isn't too big of an issue - have Lucas Digne, who'd be first choice, but is still a bit raw and gets knackered if you play him every week.

Any ideas?

Corchia or Aurier can be trained to left back position and do reasonably well.
