    £18 million. But he has a buyout clause of £23 million. Its just ruined my game though cause its too unrealistic. I got Rafinha on loan from barca needing to pay 0% of his wages.

    Just going to mess about with this save until the full game comes out.

    Bad enough Brown gets injured and retires, now Mikey has broken his leg and will miss the rest of the season. No doubt it will cripple his development, as well. I've been pushing him and Dembele on the right. Now I've Forrest retrained to play LW. Something I noticed is in the same news day, Nick Hammond had a relatively decent replacement in Tommy Oar lined up straight away. However, I've Mo and Sinclair as backup in that position, but a nice feature. Not sure if that is down to me relaxing the responsibilities a little or not.

    Only signing I've made is Farinez in goals for just under 2m. Another scouting recommendation. I'm not taking the scouting as serious with this save and allowing a little more randomness to fit in with the Celtic transfer style IRL.

    Bastoni at Inter is next! Nicky boy has lined up Partey and Alena on loan to add something different in midfield.

    I bought Farinez as well at the beginning of the game. Ive tried to buy him when i can in the last 3 games. He wanted big wages in this game at the start. Think he is on like £38k a week or something.

    on Haaland are you going to try and play 2 up front or play Eddy as a winger? im going to try and buy Jonathan David as well and play the 3 of them up top. Dont know if it will work but if it does.. what a strike force

    First game I tried playing 2 up together, but ofc Eddie picks up an injury straight after the game, so we'll see. Depends on availability. I'm really focusing on youth, so sold Griffiths and been giving mins to Afolabi.

    This is my main formation:

    2nd - MoN style:

    3rd:

    Last one is just sheer overload for the craic and actually garners some decent results, like pumping Genk 5-0. :56:

    Why Mikey and Dembele down the wings? They're the future of the club. Also, James is a HG talent and not someone I want to get rid of. The core of my team is primarily going to be Academy products.

    Also somebody mentioned the Huns getting loads of pens. 2 more to add to his collection and it's only the end of January...

    25 domestic appearances - 18 pens!

    More, why switch the natural right sided Forrest to the left, and the natural left sided Mikey to the right? Seems - pointless? Or are you looking at them coming in from the outside etc?

    Forrest going left is only a temp. fix to replace Mikey, who is long term injured, and to accommodate Dembele down the right. Inside forwards/inverted wingers work great in this system

    Ah, sorry I didnt click that it was a temp due to his injury.

    Long term you going for having Mikey and Dembele in the first team then? Makes more sense haha

    Keep him and rotate with Forrest. He is good enough to play in the league, np.

    Lads....can sign Zlatan for 750k but he'd be on 87k a week and require 3.5m signing on fee. Worth it to have a front 3 of him, Haaland, and Edouard, no? :56:

    Little bit of a wunderkind tip for anyone who hasn’t come across him yet: Lisandru Tramoni from Ajaccio 2. Corsican RW who can also do a passable turn as a backup striker. Can be had very cheaply and my coaches rate him a Bundesliga-level player despite being just 17 y/o. A tad one-footed but nobody’s perfect.
