Yeah, I am planning to keep signing legends. Getting in wonderkid after wonderkid just becomes boring after awhile.I got Onana and he has been great for me so far! I got in Milik on a free too and he left after 5 months because he “didn’t think he was good enough”.
He must have a strong character in the game.
2nd is great going and really like your use of the legends. They have far more respect for older players in this years version and it’s great.
Anyone 33+ in older versions physicals bombed almost immediately.
Anyway, season ended, finished 1st after majority of the top teams shit the bed, Inter especially. It possibly came a season too early as I don't think we are that good yet. I had to change tactics with about ten games to go, I went from a 4-2-3-1 with wingers to now a diamond midfield that cuts out my wingers who I now plan to sell as I won all ten games which led me to the title. Cavani got injured midway and I only won 4 games out of the 12 he missed (including Europa League KO). However he came back to finish on 29 goals for the season, 25 in the league which included a winning goal for the title in a nervy 2-1 win over Spezia.
Europa League, went out in the quarter finals to Sporting Lisbon. I should have learnt from the previous round against Betis when I scrapped through on away goals playing a rotated squad. I thought the same team would be enough but no, got battered 3-0 at home which was my first home defeat. Lost the second leg 5-2. Makes me wonder how strong the team really is for next season in the UCL.
Coppa Italia - I've created my own Coppa Italia as I find the current one a damp squid. I created a 128 team knockout tournament which goes down to the semi pro leagues. I lost in the semi finals to Juventus and a Serie C/D team made it to the semi finals too playing utter dross sides to get there
Strange FM things:
Buffon left on a free because "The team isn't doing well in the league". We won the league but okay. Haaland (who I never planned on signing but just wanted to test the waters) also had the same complaint when I asked his agent for availability.
Lozano (80m bid from Arsenal) Good player but going without wingers for now.
Politano (60m from Dortmund) Another one not needed
Grealish who turned down Barcelona and United for me.
Marcos Antonio from Shakhtar who is rated better than all my midfielders. Only cost £15m.
Belotti 7m - Torino were relegated so I thought I had to get him in for that paltry amount.
Dortmund reportedly will bid £108m for Osimhen. He did well when Cavani was injured, scored goals but the team suffered overall. Looking at Matic as cover for DM for £3m. His physicals are shot but his mental and technical ability is still good.
