Just starting my 2nd season with LFC... played only community shield vs Chelsea. Had 2 disallowed goals, then they scored in the 85/86 min
First game of league is away to Chelsea as well! I won the CC (vs Newcastle) and FA cup (vs Wigan) 1st season and finished 3rd. Lost last game of season 2-1 at home to Sunderland after going 1-0 up. Was fuming after the game cos Chelsea and Man City both only drew, would have won league if I had won and Man City piped me to 2nd cos I lost...
Play a 4-3-3 (3 CMs and 3 STs) with DR/DL given wingback(attack) roles.
is how my front players line up with roles.
Last season Andy Carroll was my top scorer with 30 goals in all comps! Suarez had something like 18 goals and 16 assists (goals may be wrong, but assist count is right!)
This season my squad is:
Ter Stegan (Cost £14m in 1st Jan)
Neil Taylor (cost £4m from Swansea this season)
Milan Badelj (£7 in Jan)
Ganso (£21m in Jan) - Tackling is only weak part of game when doing the Box2Box role, so he wont be a balling winning player!
Frimpong (£9m this window) - Ball Winning role only (wanted another young homegrown player, Rodwell wouldnt join me!)
Shelvey - Wouldnt want him to play BW role but he filled in last season and did ok
Henderson - Same as Shelvey
Leandro Damiao (£22m in Jan) - Could play TM role as well as CF
Cavani (£38m this window) - If Carroll scorered 30 goals playing between Kuyt and Suarez and then Damiao and Suarez its frightening to think what Canani will score!
Suarez - Does a job as TM if required but prefer keep to just CF
Neymar (£42m this window) - Definately wont play TM role cos of poor heading, may change CF to AF depending on he does in the role.
Carroll - TM role only!
Kuyt - Sold my other 27+ players apart from Reina/Carra/Gerrard but kept Kuyt cos I made him a youth coach as well and he did a good job for me at the end of season when Carroll and others had a couple of injuries! As with real Kuyt scored some big goals in big matches! Think he had 14-15 goals last season!
Happy with first choice for all positions and the backup for midfield and STs, but slightly concerned I am bring the likes of Wilson/Flanagen/Robinson into first team too soon! Also Neil Taylor could either go very well or very poorly! He is a £4m gamble!'
Only sold Adam (£6.75m to Fulham) and Lucas (£20m to Florentina) cos I wanted to bring in younger players instead, they actually had fairly decent first seasons!
I also bought in Romario (£2.9m in Jan) and Mbaye Niang (£9.5m this window) as well. Sent both of them and Suso out on loan to Accrington for this season. So far Romario and Suso have helped them beat Peterborough in the CC, Niang was injured. Accrington could rip up L2 with those 3 players! Niang will replace Kuyt next season! May sell johnson next season, just to replace with younger and have Romario take his place in the squad!
Dont intend to buy anyone new for ages, part from a couple of 15-17yo regens... Had a look at my monthly transfer clauses and over the next 11 months I will be paying out £1.8m/month net looking at what I get in and what I have agreed to spend on the transfer structures! Some of the ins and outs finish in 11 months time! All my transfers over £20m are over 48 months as well so still paying for the likes of Cavani/Neymar etc in 4 years time

I'm in 2016 and I just sold 30 year cabaye in my newcastle save for £18 million and brought in McEachran for £6.5 million and shelvey for £2 million. Both were transfer listed
Double whammy, looks like Coppiardi is off to Lazio for 2m which is sort of decent money for league two, I just can't afford to match the wages his agent wants. 101 league goals in 82 games will be hard to replace.
Made it to the Carling Cup final but lost on penalties to Leicester. All my takers turned into Charlie Adam
Not to worry, I'm actually signing a real player from the real Barcelona on a free
Barcelona to Lowestoft, never thought I'd see that!
Lampe left on a free, but i feel i replaced him with an equally as good, if not better player, in Jamall Lascelles, and some Greek guy
In February of my 4th season, I've only lost one game all season (Man City Away) and my defence and attack are the best in the league, mainly due to my last game - an 8-1 drubbing of Burnley (For:56 Agg:12) I'm top of the table by 11 points yet Arsenal have a game in hand. Got Marseille in the CL next.
Suso has grown into the team now. He's got 7 goals and 13 Assists in about 25 matchs (17 starts). Sterling just isn't improving though and it's a real ball ache. I might ship him out for Muinian. Coady would be a decent player but he isn't very athletic. Might have to give up on him too.
Got ter Stegan coming in at the end of the season for £3m, I'm unsure whether to keep Reina still or sell him.
Fierro and Jenkins have been lethal upfront and both have 16 goals in around 24 games (including sub appearances). I've snapped up some pretty good youngsters too, my favourite is an 18 year old Swedish striker who I'm hoping to retrain as an AM. I think he can go on to be the best player on the game and I got him for about £500k!
Just finished my 2nd season with LFC.
2nd in league (MU won ) - FA Cup winners - CL semi finals
Play with 3 strikers, 2 CFs and 1 TM. In first season Carroll got 30 goals in all comps! for 2nd I bought Cavani for £38m, and he played in Carrolls position. Carroll was his backup.
This is how Cavani did! /
Got Muniain coming in at the end of the season - £22m. Might try to offload Griezmann who has been pretty terrible. Sterling's performances have improved a lot so I think he will get another season to prove his worth. I wish Coady would improve though. I hoped that he would develop much better than he has.
I'm not 19 points clear at the top (although Arsenal and United have a game in hand against each other. If I win one more game from 7 I win the league, I think it's pretty safe to say that I can do that. I want to win them all though because my win % is 75% now. Probably the highest it's ever been.
I think I'll move Reina and Enrique and possibly Coates on in the summer. Coates has got worse and his goal return has been completely shot down. Kelly, Wilson and Prestia are the future, plus a couple of regens in the reserves. I also think it's time for Gerrard to retire, he's not up to his old tricks sadly.
On another note, the owners still won't build me anything over 55k for my stadium and are now refusing to make my academy and facilities better, even though they're not as good as they can be, I get not decent players coming through, and I've got a ridiculous amount of money. Very frustrating because I really want to work from my academy.
Just finished my 6th season with Napoli, winning the 5th consecutive Scudetto and 2nd consecutive CL (3rd overall). Napoli are now rated as a 4,5 star club along with Real, Barca & Man Utd. It's all a bit easy because all the Italian clubs seem to be declining. A few screenshots:
Luis Alarcon - A 20-year-old AM wonderkid regen who I got for free.
Mark Delgado - Another wonderkid regen. I paid £45M for him and I sort of regret that because his dribbling is so poor.
Emanuele Maniero - The only good player I've got in the youth intakes.
Christophe Leger - A wonderkid regen. He WILL become the best poacher in the world.
Marc Kloetstra - Another wonderkid regen, and I'm confident I can make him the best deep lying playmaker in the game. Got him for £30M from FC Kobenhavn.
Fatai Okoye - Another player I got from Kobenhavn. This guy is possibly the best young GK, and he had a 3,5m release clause for foreign clubs. I was going to make 15M starting bid before I saw that
Raheem Sterling - I got him for free and he's very, very good. Doesn't really suit my system so I'm trying to loan him somewhere.
Mbaye Niang - He's just brilliant.
These are just some interesting ones that I picked out. I let ter Stegen leave on a free because he was quite average.
Riise is the manager at Fulham, Mick McCarthy was at AC Milan for a short period, haven't heard anything from Villas-Boas since he was sacked from Vitesse in 2013, Ancelotti is Liverpool's manager, Bielsa City's.
Out of FM 10, 11 & 12 this is the first where I've seen a freekick caused by a GK handling the ball outside the are. That GK was De Gea.
I just won the Premier League! So chuffed!
It's been a very successful season. Also won the Carling Cup (againt Cardiff! weird!)
Got to the Semi's of the Champions League. Knocked out by barcelona, 93rd minute messi goal knocked me out, would have gone through otherwise.
Got to the FA cup final against tottenham. came from 2-0 down to level. Lost on penalties. Bit upsetting!
Happy for winning the league though, it's taken a lot of time. Ended up with (goal wise)
I'm really happy with the squad, and I've just been given 95M to spend in the summer. But the squad is still strong. They're all pretty young, but I'll need a new keeper soon.
Next goal is the Champions League.
Hmm, hadn't seen this thread before. Cooleo.
So I started a new game with Liverpool with the update, and I'm sitting top after nine games, having only dropped points in a 1-1 with the Mancs at OT. Sold Maxi for 10mil, and brought in Willian, Erick Torres, Fernando (Gremio edition), and Carlos Fierro is arriving next year. Currently play a 4-2-3-1, like so:
Originally, I had planned on bringing Stevie back in for Hendo by now, but Hendo has been my best player, and Stevie still isn't match fit after six or so appearances off the bench. Thinking I might drop Kuyt and move Willian out to the right for him when he reaches full fitness, but not sure.
I bought willian a few years ago, and paid a lot for him. He only started playing well during the second half of last season. He was a bench player for most of it, but had a great run of 10 goals in 10 games.
Gerrard's my assistant manager, and carra has just retired, and I've offered him a coaching role.
I have Jovetic as my main striker, usually playing Di maria and Suarez as AML and AMR either side of him.
Kyle Walker was another bargain. I got him for about 5m, and he's been class.
Willian has just been okay. Scored on debut in my win over Chelsea, but he and Suarez seem to get in each others way a bit, which makes the wing move appealing for me.
How much did Jovetic cost? Really like him, but never bought him on FM.
Just agreed to sign Fowler, he's 38
Don't need him at all, but as soon as he arrives I am going to talk him into coaching, i've already got Carra and I would have got Hyppia if he was still in the game.
Finished season 4 - Won everything... Finished the season with 104 points, 19 conceded, 88 scored (both the best record). Only lost 3 games all season - Man City away in the league, CL Semi away leg versus Arsenal and away to West Ham in the league (had a lot of youth out as the league was already rapped up after 33 games). Surprised how immense the team were. Time for a mini squad change now though. Need to keep the game exciting and move on my older players.
Gerrard - retired (hired him as a coach)
Reina - £32m (Man City)
Enrique - £18m (Inter)
I'm thinking about moving Coates and Griezmann on, very possibly Coady and Sterling too. None of them have improved very much at all after a lot of first team football.
ter Stegen - £3m
Muniain - £22m
Chavelerinho - £1.8m (Regen left-back)
My youth team are still not producing any decent players at all and I've had all facilities improved again. I don't think they can get any better... It's so frustrating.
Still can't get above my 55 000 capacity stadium either. I don't think the club are ever going to let me.
Oldest player is now 25/26, Ganso has just been named 'el capitan', might name Bender as his deputy.
Halfway through my first season, and a few things have popped up:
- Stoke are unreasonably good, especially at home. I'm top of the league, with them three points back in second, and beating everyone that has to go there.
- Wolves are still better than they should be. I noticed this on last year's game too.
- Sunderland seem even worse on the update. O'Neill was gone after something like 12 games.
Anyway, for anyone playing a new game, I highly recommend Erick Torres. Future superstar for 3.9mil, who already makes an impact in the first season. Just don't have Suarez tutor him, as they apparently don't get along. Oops.
Team is spluttering towards the end of the season. With three games to go, I'm a point behind the Mancs with a game in hand. Should have the league won already, but went on a horror run with 0-1 Fulham (H), 6-1 Man City (H), 1-2 Norwich (A), 0-2 Man City (N - FA Cup SF), 1-1 Villa (H), 1-1 Blackburn (A). Gerrard and Suarez have been horrible of late.
Edit: Ended up winning the league by five points ahead of Chelsea, after the Mancs choked and lost to both Swansea and Stoke.

May 2020 Liverpool announce plans to build a new stadium called 'Dalglish Stadium'
Did anyone get the April Fools in their game? Haha, classic.
