  1. Rebuilding Team Vibe

    Sup Stam. I'm interested in the Social Media Manager role (I was interested just before @Dec stood down but nothing came to it ) I was a writer on here from November to March/April but had to step down due to University commitments. I have however, just finished my first year of uni so have all the time in the world. If not the social media manager role, I'd happily return as a writer All the best
  2. @Taff Deal The shooting practice in training has paid off
  3. Kluivert Reborn

    Are you just doing him moving from Ajax to Barcelona? He also played for Milan for a season before Barcelona, and then Newcastle and Valencia. Great idea btw!
  4. Top scorer so far Well done lads
  5. Favorite French Club?

    Personally, I've never managed in the French leagues before (I tried with Paris FC but I got bored). I've always like Monaco. Love their kit as well. Lille are another club I like. One of my favourite Newcastle players of all time (Yohan Cabaye) played for Lille

  7. When and if you send your scouts out to look for new signings, what regions do you send your scouts in? UK and Ireland? Asia? Personally, it depends on who I am managing. For example, if I was manager of Liverpool, I would scout in either southern Europe, eastern Europe or central Europe, as I already have a pretty wide knowledge on top players in England. If, however, I was manager of Salford City, I would ONLY scout in UK and Ireland, as it would be too risky buying foreign players when manager of a club lower down the ladder, and I don't have that good of a knowledge about lower league players.

  9. Challenge Cup 2017

    I'd just like to clear things up. I sent in 3 screenshots, which included the league table, cup progress and my wildcard player. I failed/forgot to send in the other screenshots including manager profile and squad, and I had already overwrited the save with a Paris FC one the day after, so I couldn't go back to screenshot the remaining evidence. Again, good luck to the remaining participants in the tournament The finals in sight, lads

  11. Challenge Cup 2017

    Thoroughly looking forward to the results...
  12. Introduction The wing-back and full-back position in football is arguably the toughest, with both attacking and defensive attributes needed, and enough stamina to get yourself up and down the pitch. Below, I have listed 5 players who play as a wing back/full back who have impressed so far this season, thus deserving an upgrade in the upcoming update. Enjoy. 1. Marcos Alonso - Chelsea Marcos Alonso was quite a surprising signing for Antonio Conte's Chelsea, joining from Fiorentina for £23m. The Spaniard has impressed in the left wing-back position, which was deployed by Conte earlier on in the season. Alonso has already scored 4 goals so far this season for Chelsea, which is the same amount he scored during his 3 year spell at Fiorentina, and assisted 2 times, as he continues to grow under Antonio Conte. The majority of his stats are fairly low, with only 3 green stats. Based on his perfomances this season, I think he definitely deserves upgrades in his stats, including his crossing and dribbling skills. 2. Victor Moses - Chelsea Like Marcos Alonso, this man has impressed hugely since Antonio Conte switched to a 3-4-3 formation. Prior to this season, Victor Moses had been spent the last 3 seasons on loan at Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham United, with it looking like he'd spend another season elsewhere. However, he was brought in from the cold by Conte, and placed as a right wing-back for the 2016-2017 season, becoming one of The Blues' most reliable players. Moses has already made the same amount of appearances as he did during his loan spells with Liverpool and Stoke City, and has scored 3 goals so far this season. Looking at his stats, he already has some fairly high stats, with key stats such as dribbling and pace all in the green. I still think, however, he deserves some stat upgrades, as he has been one of the best players this season in the Premier League. 3. Seamus Coleman - Everton I know what you're thinking. "Another player from the Premier League?!". This is the last one, I promise. Seamus Coleman is probably the biggest bargain in the history of the Premier League, joining Everton from Sligo Rovers for just £60,000. The same price as a 2 bedroom mid-terraced house in Bolton. Since joining, Coleman has got better and better every year, playing nearly every game for Everton every season. So far this season, he's made 21 appearances, scoring on 4 occasions, and assisting 3 times for his team-mates, as he continues to be one of the first names on the team sheet for The Toffees. I think that he deserves some upgrades to his stats, as they don't really do him much justice. His shooting skills, most notably, certainly need improving, as he's good with long range shots. 4. Mitchell Weiser - Hertha BSC Moving in the Bundesliga now, and to a player who spent 3 years at Bayern Munich, before making a move to the capital back in 2015. Mitchell Weiser had an impressive 2015-2016 season, starring 29 times for Hertha BSC, scoring twice, though it wasn't enough to make the Germany squad for the 2016 European Championships. He's carried his terrific form into the 2016-2017 season, helping Hertha to a good start to the campaign, where they sit just 1 point below a UEFA Champions League place. The young German is definitely be a regular in the national side, potentially becoming a long-term replacement for Philippe Lahm, who retired immediately after the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Although his stats are fairly high for his age, he still deserves a few upgrades to his stats, including his stamina. 5. Nelson Semedo - SL Benfica Nelson Semedo has been a Benfica player since 2012, where he was bought from the Sport Uniao Sintrense youth academy, where he has slowly been fed through to the first-team, with this season set to be his big breakthrough season. So far this season, Semedo has played 20 times for Benfica, already assisting 5 times. The youngster certainly hasn't gone under the radar, with reports suggesting that he is set for a summer move to Manchester United, with FC Barcelona also said to be interested. Semedo has a lot of green stats already, but I think he could still do with a few more upgrades, particularly in the stamina department. Thank you for reading. Let me know your thoughts in the comments.

  16. The Top 11 Teams To Play As Post-update

    Nottingham Forest will be another interesting Championship club to manage. They signed Ross McCormack and Zach Clough, who are good signings for their calibre. Also, in the Premier League, West Ham United did pretty well in the transfer window. I like the look of Robert Snodgrass and Jose Fonte

  22. Challenge Cup 2017

    What time will we find out?
  23. The January transfer window came to an official end last night, which means only one thing. A new database update. Amongst all the player transfers and manager movements, players are bound to be given upgraded (and even some downgraded) stats. Here are 8 goalkeepers that I think should be given an upgrade in the new database update. 1. Jordan Pickford (Sunderland) There is absolutely no doubt that Jordan Pickford has single handedly kept Sunderland in games this season, as without him, The Black Cats would probably already be relegated by now. His excellent reflexes and agility is exactly why Arsenal were rumoured to be sniffing around for the 22-year-old, with Sunderland facing a possibly tussle in the summer to keep the in-form goalkeeper, whether they remain a Premier League team or not. With Pickford one of the top performing goalkeepers this season, I think he deserves a boost to his stats. 2. Tom Heaton (Burnley) Burnley have done exceptionally well in this Premier League campaign, sitting very comfortable in 10th place, and most of the credit lies with this man. Tom Heaton, like Pickford, has kept The Clarets in games, and saved them vital points this season, with the 30-year-old going from strength to strength. Although his stats in FMM 2017 are quite high anyway, I still think he deserves a little increase in some of his stats, especially agility. 3. Yoan Cardinale (OGC Nice) Football fans often refer to Ligue 1 as a 'boring' league, with Paris-Saint Germain dominating the league in the last few years. This season, however, is a little bit different. OGC Nice sit second in the table and are currently battling with PSG and AS Monaco to gain the crown of French champions. Dante, manager Lucien Favre and Mario Balotelli have all played their part in Nice's rise to the summit of French football, but one players who goes under the radar is Yoan Cardinale. The 22-year-old got his big break last season, making 25 appearances before claiming the number 1 spot for the 2016-2017 season. Yoan Cardinale certainly deserves an upgrade in his stats, including key stats such as agility, reflexes and handling. 4. Andre Onana (Ajax) Ajax have a long and proud history of producing some of football's finest players, including the likes of the late Johan Cruyff, Dennis Bergkamp, Wesley Sneijder and Tottenham Hotspur's Christian Eriksen. The next name on the long list could be this man. Andre Onana. The 20-year-old Cameroonian started the 2016-2017 in the Ajax reserves, but was promoted to the first team, where he looked to battle for the number 1 shirt with Newcastle United's Tim Krul. Krul's loan stay was cut short, as he was then loaned to fellow Dutch club AZ Alkmaar, giving Onana the perfect opportunity with just 3 months of the season left. The youngster has produced some sterling performances this season, and he'll only continue to grow. Looking at his stats, he definitely deserves upgrades in some areas of his stats, including his handling and reflexes. Remember the name. 5. Gianluigi Donnarumma (A.C. Milan) What a year and a half Gianluigi Donnarumma has had. Making his competitive debut for AC Milan back in October 2015, he then went on to make his Italy debut in September 2016, as he's gone on to become one of Europe's top keepers, and certainly a long-term replacement in the national side for Gianluigi Buffon. At just 17-years-old, he's already become AC Milan's first choice goalkeeper, appearing in every game since his debut. He made a blistering start to the 2016-2017 campaign, saving a penalty to deny Andrea Belotti to give his side the 3 points. The picture above shows the amount of saves per game Donnarumma has made since October 2015, all the way to May 2016. As you can see, he made roughly 4 saves per game throughout the whole of last season, excluding the 9 he made at the back end of the season. His stats are already high, including his communication, handling and reflexes, but I still think he could do with a few more upgrades in the reflex department. This lad will only keep growing. Hope you enjoyed this article. Feel free to leave comments below. Thank you!
  24. During one of my recent simulations, I checked in on the Premier League table, only to discover that Hull City had finished bottom of the league with just 8 points, no games won and 81 goals conceded (As you can see from the screenshot below). So, my question to you all is: What is the highest/lowest amount of points you've seen in a league table?
  25. Jesus. That's quite a fall from grace. If only ey. Btw, are your badges big enough?
