  2. The winter transfer update is nearly upon us (within the next month hopefully) and with it come not just updated transfers, but also boosts in stats for players and clubs who are performing well. But what about those who aren’t living up to expectations? Stats, of course, can go down as well as up. Here I look at five teams you should start a save as before the update, as I anticipate them taking a hit: Leicester Where else is there to start but with the Foxes? Last season’s Premier League champions are in complete freefall, and none of their stars of last season are living up to expectations – the likes of Vardy, Mahrez, Drinkwater and Morgan are all likely to take a bashing in the stats rating, and that will have an impact on the whole squad. Start a save now while they are all still at their peak! Aston Villa Villa are an odd choice, as I also included them in my list of teams to play as post-update, but considering their huge turnover in players in January they are basically a whole different team pre- and post-update. Give them a go and see if you can do better than Roberto di Matteo and Steve Bruce! Piast Gliwice There’s a bit of a theme developing here! Piast Gliwice massively overachieved last season and finished in a highly respectable second place. However, they lost their joint top scorers in the summer and other key players have stopped performing, and as a result they have now plummeted back down the table. Are you the person to get their new strikers and other key players performing once more? Adelaide United Just like Leicester, Adelaide United are another top to bottom story. The 2015-2016 A-League Champions, they are now rock bottom of the division, seven points from safety. Key men Craig Goodwin and Bruce Djite did leave the club over the summer, but two men do not make the difference between top or bottom – or do they? Give the rest of the squad a whirl to find out. Lille The team from Northern France had a great season in 2015/2016, finishing in an impressive fifth position in Ligue 1 and qualifying for the Europa League. Despite retaining the majority of their squad (albeit losing top scorer Sofiane Boufal to Southampton), they are struggling hugely this season, only out of the relegation zone by one point. Why not see if you can keep them in the top half of the league? So what do you think? Have these inspired you to get a save going before the update? Or are you waiting?
  3. Season three: The end of season three, and to my surprise Jordan Rhodes did not come back to the Premier League, meaning we are left with three candidates. So all three survive again, did they perform well personally? Let's see:
  4. The reason I ask is because I've played FMM on my original iPad Mini for the last three or four years, but the game is starting to lag majorly after a few matches (especially on EME) and I am starting to play more on my iPhone. However I find it less intuitive on the phone and harder to use than on a tablet, and my enthusiasm is waning a little. Just wanted to see if others feel the same!
  5. Need Help

    Football is unpredictable - look at Hull beating Liverpool last weekend - despite Liverpool having the superior players and probably the higher morale, they were still beaten. There are plenty of other factors that influence games than just ability on paper.
  6. Need Big Help!!!!

    Are you able to post screenshots?
  7. Need Big Help!!!!

    Did you pay for the app or did you download it for free.
  8. I did have a look at Burton but decided against them - I think there are other teams in the Championship who will change more dramatically after the update, like Villa, Wigan and Bristol City to name a few.
  9. Scoring Heavily And Conceding As Well

    This. You could be playing with no central defenders for all we know. Help us to help you.
  10. Scoring Heavily And Conceding As Well

    Can you post some screenshots of your lineup/tactics etc?
  11. Aha but you still have him for the season, so if you manage to get success then others may be tempted to sign!
  12. With the winter transfer update on the horizon (expected early March), it’s time to start thinking about how the game will change when it comes. As the January transfer window has now slammed shut (except in China), I’ve put together a list of 11 teams worth starting a career with following their mid-season wheeling and dealing that will come in the update. Hull City – Not many teams are brave enough to sell arguably their two best players in the middle of a relegation battle, but that’s just what Hull did. Robert Snodgrass and Jake Livermore departed in January for West Ham and West Brom respectively. In their place, the Tigers signed the likes of Lazar Markovic and Kamil Grosicki to add some flair, classy defender Andrea Rannochia to provide stability at the back, and Oumar Niasse to add some potency up front. Certainly worth a look at post update. Aston Villa – Nine players in and seven players out – it’s safe to say that Aston Villa did not have a quiet January. Out went the likes of Jordan Ayew, Aly Cissokho and Ashley Westwood, but they were more than adequately replaced with players such as Neil Taylor, Scott Hogan and Henri Lansbury. If Villa had a full season with their current squad, they would no doubt be favourites for promotion – why not give it a go? SV Darmstadt – Darmstadt are rooted to the bottom of the Bundesliga table, but they have made some intelligent January signings to try and drag them away from the relegation zone. In have come the hugely experienced Hamit Altintop and Sidney Sam, while they have also managed to get the highly-rated Patrick Banggaard to try and shore things up at the back. Las Palmas – One player does not make a team, but when the team concerned is Las Palmas, and the player concerned is Jese, then that one player can make a huge difference. The Gran Canaria-based team pulled off something of a coup by encouraging former Real Madrid superstar Jese to return to them on loan from Paris Saint-Germain. It’s worth starting a new save as the island side just to build a team around him. AC Milan – I had a tough time picking between AC Milan and Genoa for this list, but plumped for the former Italian champions. They sent FMM favourite M’Baye Niang out on loan to Watford, and replaced him with Everton winger Gerard Deulofeu and young Argentine Lucas Ocampos, both on temporary deals. They both certainly have the quality to make a big impact in Serie A. Besiktas – Turkey has often been a league for former greats to go try and revive their careers, and Besiktas have continued that tradition by welcoming former Premier League stars Demba Ba and Ryan Babel into their ranks during January. Ba comes back to Europe following a stint in China, while Babel arrives from Spanish club Deportivo, and they will be hoping to help Besiktas secure the Super Lig title. Can you do the same? Marseille – Arguably the biggest saga of the January transfer window was that of Dimitri Payet, and it almost seems natural to include his new club, Marseille, on this list. The South Coast club signed their former hero, along with former France captain Patrice Evra, to try and boost them up the table. Was Payet right to return ‘home’? Why not give it a go and find out? KRK Genk – I’ve included Genk on this list not because of the players they’ve bought, but the players they have lost. The club still find themselves in the top six, but have seen highly rated winger Leon Bailey move to Bayer Leverkusen and central midfield powerhouse Wilfred Ndidi depart for Leicester City in return for large sums in the January window. While they have used some of that money to strengthen across the squad, as we all know - quantity doesn’t always replace quality. Benfica – It seems a bit odd to include a club the size of Benfica on this list, but they are another side that were weakened in the January window by the loss of key players. Young winger Goncalo Guedes left for Paris Saint-Germain in a big money move, while Braga recalled Brazilian Danilo and Adel Taarabt went out on loan to Genoa. They did, however, keep hold of Victory Lindelof, so all is not lost, and they have plenty of potential in their ranks. Kilmarnock – I think it’s safe to say that Kilmarnock aren’t one of the most fashionable clubs in the Scottish Premier League, and they currently sit in no-man’s land in midtable. They lost key striker Souleymane Coulibaly to Egypt in January, but made a number of astute loan signings including former hero Connor Sammon , highly-rated goalkeeper Freddie Woodman and promising midfielder Kristoffer Ajer to try and preserve their top-flight status. Those signing certainly provide a solid base on which to start a career. AZ Alkmaar – It may seem strange to include a team that only made two signings on this list, but those two signings could prove to be enough to push AZ into the European places. Dutch international Tim Krul cut short his loan at Ajax to join them, while Norwegian defender Jonas Svensson came in to provide support to a somewhat leaky defence. Key signings can make or break a season and AZ fans will be hoping for the former. Let me know what you think - do any of these take your fancy?
  13. Season Two: So, another season under our belt - and it looks like we could be set to lose at least one of our stars from the experiment... That's right, both Jordan Rhodes and Ross McCormack have been relegated, so unless they get a transfer, they are OUT of the experiment. You'll also notice Leicester aren't featured - while they finished in a respectable eighth position, Tom Ince spent the season on loan, bizarrely, at Dundee, and cannot be included. So, starting with the highest finish, here we go:
  14. Looks like you do mate! Although it's not over yet...
  15. End of Season One: So, how did our nearly men get on? As we can see, they have all survived, with none of their teams being relegated: So how did they do individually? Let's work our way down the league:
