  1. Cheap Wonderkid XI One of the best challenges in FMM17 is uncovering the next great talent. But sometimes it isn't the cheapest of endeavors. For example Marcus Rashford was a unknown player just over a year ago, he now starts the game worth a eye watering £20 million. A lot of money for a 18 year old, So with that in mind I present a starting XI of future world stars that won’t cost you more than £10 million each. So let’s start our money saving search. GK-Pedrag Rajkovic-Maccabi Tel-Aviv £1.5m This Serbian shot stopper is a steal at just £1.5 mill. As you can see just after one season he is already worth ten times that. As you can see after one season he is increased in handling and decision making and he is already worth ten times what we payed, DL Philipp Ochs £9.5m This guy was interesting. As upon reloading the test save to purchase him. His value had jumped to £10.75 million. Still I bid just £8.75 million already worth ten times and after a couple more bids and a tantrum from Ochs and I managed to snatch him up for £9.5 million He will come back after initial contract offer of his requested wages of 15-20k that he would find it hard to leave Hoffenheim. But you can offer him a new contract of his demands of 50-60k a week and he signs. DC Jerry St.Juste £7m A quality strong Dutch center back. With bags of potential. Within one season he improved in tackling and positioning,At just £7 million a worthy investment for years to come. DC Mathijs de Ligt £7m Another Dutch center back with bags of potential. At just 16 he could lead your defense for years, In one season you see he is already improving in key areas (aerial, positioning) and if he improves as quick as he has in one season he will be world star in any top European side. DR Hidde Ter avest 7m Not a whole lot of improvement in stats for this Dutch right back with only slight improvements in tackling and positioning. But this is only after one season. Given his adaptability to play at CB as well as Rb makes him a worthy investment and at just £7 million. AMR Pavon £7.75m Not really an unknown to experienced players of FMM17 . 7.5 million for a 21 year old ready for the first team and given that he can easily play on the left or right makes him a worthy acquisition for our team. AML Hirving Lozano £8m Again another well known wonder kid. But another ready made first team prospect. Capable of playing on either wing. Also could do a job up top if needed. With recent media reports linking him with a move to Man City this summer this may be the last chance you have to snap up the Mexican winger. MC Flippo Melgoni £3.5m. Decent young Italian central midfielder.that has the potential to play in a number of roles with some training. As you can see here after just one season he has already got a passing rating of 15 also he has risen more than three times in value and he is only 17. MC/AMC Alfonso sousa £7m If your looking for an advance play maker for your team. Look no further than FC Porto’s Alfonso Sousa. Easily adaptable at playing in the center of midfield. Although not much improvement in once season but he is still only 16/17 years old so has much time to improve. He is also in this test save he is also competing with Man united players such as Mata, Mkhitaryan which may have stifled his development. ST Thomas Buitnik £7.25m Yes another Dutch wonderkid. Upon doing this article I am beginning to think we could be entering a golden age of Dutch wonderkids in the next few years. Or at least that’s what SI are predicting. One season in and his value is risen considerably and his shooting is 15 and dribbling 14 and he is still only 16. ST Albian Ajeti £10m The most expensive of our wonderkids but as you will see after just one year he has got a shooting rating of 16 and he is already worth £16 million and still only 20. So there you have it a Starting XI with a total cost value of just £68.5 million with huge developments in one season that should be noted was holidayed and controlled by the AI. I expect them to grow even more under player control and perhaps with the use of the Intensive training could grow even more . Also the key to purchasing these players I should say is to be strict with your transfer offers. Offer the player’s value or below it as an initial bid and then increase in small increments more often than not the player will throw his toys out of the pram and demand a move Hope you enjoy the read, Feel free to add your wonderkid discoveries below and share those gems.
  2. Die Ausflug - A Primer to the 3.Liga

    Nice article. Definitely a challenge for someone looking for a road to glory career.
  3. Sevilla Career

    Tbh this season was about 2 months ago so not sure lol. I know I went more attacking around November December in a 4-3-3 which allowed Correa to flourish in the Left IF position. Thanks for comments.
  4. Great Article and perfect timing after today's win. The future of the English team looks good,

  6. Sevilla Career

    So sorry for the delay in updating this save. Have had a busy couple of weeks, but as you can tell from my other recent content i'v had a chance to post more so it was only right to continue the story in Sevilla enjoy!! Part 2 Spanish Cup part 2 Fifth Round v Villareal In the Fifth round we faced Villareal in early January. In a tight first leg we took the lead through Andre Silva and after a 52nd minute sending off we held on for a vital win with a crucial away goal. The home leg was surprisingly easy. As Correa gave us the lead in the first half. With Villareal losing Ziyeach to injury. Correa then doubled our advantage on the night and 3-0 on aggregatet, Villareal then once again had a player sent off as we moved on to the quarter finals. Quarter Finals v Barcelona We went into this round once again with the away leg first. Correa gave us the lead but that was canceled out by our former loannee player Borja Mayora,l who I was surprised had moved from Real Madrid to Barcelona last summer. Correa then gave us a second and a crucial second away goal at the Camp Nou. In a tough night at home we lost on the night to Neymar a goal but it finished 2-2 on aggregate our two crucial away goals from the first leg carried us through. Semi Final v Valencia In a change from the norm. We played at home first and despite dominating the game we lost 1-0 to Araujo goal and would have it all to do in the second leg. Once again a big away win as Correa and Silva turned the tie in our favour inside 32 mins. But after Soler’s late goal in the first half we would need to hold on as we once again finished the tie 2-2 and went through on the away goal rule. We would play Real Madrid in the final of the Spanish Cup, more on that later. Champions League part 2 We drew Arsenal in the last 16 of the champions league. First leg it was an explosive start to the tie with Gabriel Jesus giving us the lead after 3 minutes. Arsenal hit back and in the space of 2 minutes Arsenal had turned it around and this tie was 2-1 after just 5 minutes. Andre silva got us back on terms after 40 mins and the first leg ended in a draw. Second leg we knew we would have to score to stand any chance of getting through, Unfortunately for us we were unable to get on the score sheet and were headed out on away goals. Mauro Icardi put the game to bed for the gunners as they hit us on the break. Our defense of the champions league ends in the last 16 stage this season. La liga part 2 We returned to the league action post winter break very much with the title in our sites. In January we were superb form with a record (W 4 D 1 L 0) we scored 11 in four games and only conceding 2 in the final game of the month against Barcelona in a 2-2 draw sandwiched between our Spanish cup games against the Catalans.. February didn’t start well as we failed to score for 3 games. A 1-0 defeat to Barcelona in the Spanish cup, followed by a 0-0 draw in the league to Celta vigo and then first leg defeat to Valencia in the Cup. We ended that baron streak with a run of 4 straight wins in the league got us back on track as we ended the month with a league record of (W4 D1 L0) March saw our unbeaten league form finally come to an end 27 game unbeaten run this season and in actual fact we were unbeaten since March of last season and a run of 40 games unbeaten. Adding the defeat to Valencia to our elimination from the champions league to Arsenal it wasn’t a good week. Despite that we ended the month with a record of (W3 D2 L1) and a huge win over Real Madrid as we build momentum in the league run in. April we continued our challenge for the title alive with another strong month with a record (W3 D1 L1) Interestingly the loss to Athletico and draw with Bilbao would be the last time we would drop points this season May (W3 D0 L0) we won all 3 games in the league as we finished the season so strong and won our first league title. We also defeated Real Madrid in the Spanish cup final as we went on to complete a double in our most successful season. Awards A clean sweep in the end of year awards with Andre Silva wining player of the year, Gabriel Jesus wining young player of the year and after guiding Sevilla to a league and cup double I won the manager of the year. A very good season all round for Sevilla but the 3 following players stand out for me. Andre Silva where would we be without his goals. He scored 51 goals in 53 appearances as he certainly begins to justify his price tag. Going on to win the Pichichi (Spanish golden boot) and the Spanish player of the year. Inigo Martinez our rock at the back himself and Jorge Mere formed a formidable partnership which helped us to only conceding 31 goals in our march to the league and cup double. Joaquin Correa A player who has surprised me this season. In my first 2 seasons he never really impressed me and last season he was very much a fringe player. I had every intention to sell him last summer but was no takers. This season he hit a purple patch around the mid point of the season he either was scoring the goals or laying them on for Andre silva form that saw him get called up for Argentina and new contract from me. Conclusion Our most successful season yet with no less than 4 trophies added to the cabinet. Hope you guys enjoy the read and don't worry season four update will be up over the next few days as we look to defend our league title.
  7. Juventus team guide

    Great read, Love the depth and the info on each player as well as the recommendations on starting xi. keep it up.
  8. Interesting test mate. Surprised Lukaku didn't score more with the options of both feet. Maybe he was injured which would explain fewer games. Either way nice idea keep it up
  9. Earlier this month Pep Guardiola began his clear out at Man City following his first trophy-less season in his managerial career. The first signing was one of the hottest commodities in world football and personal football manager favorite of mine Bernardo Silva from the exciting Moanco team. The fee is rumored to be in the region of €50 million. So I asked myself where in a team that boasts the impressive attacking talents of David silva,Leroy Sane, Kevin de Bruyne and Raheem Sterling, where would the Portuguese maestro fit in. Well thanks to the in game editor of FMM17 we can find out. 16/17 League Position 5th Fa Cup 5th round (eliminated by Man utd in a replay) League Cup 3rd round (eliminated by Tottenham) Champions League First round knockout(eliminated by Juventus) Conclusion Man City didn't perform well in Silva’s first season. In fact Guardiola lost his job in Febuary to be replaced by Bor.Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel. Still Silva managed to makee 30 appearances scoring 8 goals and chipping in with 9 assists with an average rating of 7.46. A decent first season. His stats also changed over the course of the season. Which is something to note if your looking to sign him yourself in a career. With improvements in a number of areas( cossing +3,dribbling+2, pass +3, Creative +3, Decisions +4, Movement +4) Season 2 17/18 With Tuchel at the helm how would Silva's second season in Manchester work out let’s find out. Playing this season in a MR roles in Tuchel’s 4-4-2 system. Conclusion Not as prolific second season but still a good return from 27 games 5 goals and 7 assists and a decent rating of 7.39. Man City continued to struggle again no silverware. 17/18 League Position 4th Fa Cup 5th round (eliminated by Shef Wed) League Cup 3rd round (eliminated by Chelsea) Europa League First round knockout(eliminated by Lyon) Season 3 18/19 So the final season of this test and here is how Silva begins the season. It looks like he will be playing back in the role of AMR in a 4-1-2-2-1 . This could be a pivotal season for Bernardo as Man city sold both Kevin De bruyne (to Liverpool for €165 million) and Raheem Sterling (to man utd for €61 million) so he may become an even more important player going forward. 18/19 Conclusion Big improvements from Silva this season. In 30 games 11 goals and 13 assists was the most profitable of all three seasons from Silva and finally a trophy for city in the form of the FA Cup with Silva scoring the winning goal in a 2-1 win over Everton. League Position 3rd Fa Cup Winner League Cup 4th round (eliminated by Arsenal) Champions League First round knockout(eliminated by At. Madrid) So in three seasons Bernardo Silva makes 87 appearances scoring 24 goals and assisting in 29 goals. What do you guys think would this be a decent return for Manchester city's €50 million investment.
  10. Some decent players here. Good Article.
  11. Great article. I remember managing lecce in a save years ago, may have to revisit them. Keep up the good work
  12. No they were knocked out in the qualifiers ironically to Legia Warsaw
  13. Hi guys welcome to the first of a series of previews on some of the less illustrious leagues to play in this years Football manager mobile. First one up is the top league here in the Republic of Ireland the Airtricity league. Airtricity League Founded in 1985 Airtricity league took the place following the reformation of the Irish football league system.It is a summer league based on the Scandinavian football season and runs from February to October. There are 12 teams in the league. So what's it all about... Teams League format Each side plays each other 3 times over the course of 33 league games running from February to October. Winner earns a place in the champions league second round qualifier. 12th is relegated to the 1st division and 11th enters a relegation play off with the play off winner from Division 1. Euro Places 1st - Qualifies for Champions League second round 2nd,3rd,4th - Qualify for Europa League first qualifying round.(4th depends on winner of Senior Challenge Cup. Past winners Shelbourne (6) Dunadalk (5) Current Champions Shamrock Rovers (5) St Patrick’s Athletic (5) Bohemians (4) Cork City (2) Derry City (2) Drogheda United (1) Sligo Rovers (1) Cups Irish Senior Challenge cup The senior challenge cup also known as the FAI Cup. This is the main domestic silverware in the Irish league, It also offers a route into the Europa league qualifying round to the winner. Knockout competition with on off games in each round. Games are decided by extra time and penalties if score is level after 90 minutes. Most successful teams Shamrock Rovers (24) Dundalk (10) Shelbourne,Bohemiens (7) Sligo Rovers,Derry City (5) Irish President’s Cup The Community shield of Irish football. It was only introduced in 2014 by the current president of Ireland, so still a fairly new concept in Irish football. A one of game that is played at the start of the season pitting the winner of the Airtricity premier division (currently Dundalk) and the FAI senior challenge cup holders (currently Dundalk so will play runners up Cork City). Past Winners Cork City Dundalk St.Patricks League Cup The league cup or the EA cup as it’s better known as, Is the secondary cup competition in Ireland. It’s open to all teams in Ireland Straight knock out competition with extra time and penalties if needed to decide winner. Past winners Derry City (10) Dundalk (5) St Patrick’s (4) There is also the Leinster Senior Cup and Munster Senior Cup. These are minor provincial competitions which don’t have much importance but also another chance to put a trophy in the cabinet depending on your chosen teams location. The challenge In terms of the league challenge it shouldn't take much for you to be competing with the top teams. It would be in Europe where the main challenge lies. For instance last years champions Dundalk came in with one game of being the first Irish club to make the champions league group stage, losing 3-1 on aggregate to Legia Warsaw. Warsaw being drawn in a group rubbing shoulders with the likes of Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund which would have being huge for the Irish game. Dundalk did however go on to make history in the Europa League by becoming the first Irish side to win a European group game. Dundalk Current champions having won the title the last two seasons and are tied with Shelbourne for most title wins in the leagues current format(including winning the tittle in 2016) When you start you will have the champions league qualifiers to contend in the summer months which will give you a chance to replicate Dunalk's success as I mentioned above. They also lost some key players to English championship so they will need replacing. Shamrock rovers Shamrock rovers are the most successful Irish team with a record 17 league titles and 24 Senior challenge cup wins. They have also provided more players to Republic of Ireland national team than any other club. They haven't won the league since 2011 so can you put rovers back on top. Wexford Youths Wexford Youths are one of the newest clubs in the league having only being founded in 2007. This is Wexford first season in the top league having secured promotion in 2015. So will pose the biggest challenge in terms of building a team to compete at the top. The first season could well be about consolidation. Something Wexford failed to do at the end of this season in real life. Other Notable sides. Given that FMM17 only uses the premier division as a playable league some other sides to watch out for to be promoted would be Shelbourne(6 time league champions) Limerick Fc and Waterford Fc. I hope you enjoyed the guide and it inspired some of you to give this crazy league a try.
