Loic Remy will make £60k/week at Liverpool. Transfer price £8.5m. Good bit of business that.


Yea that's a great deal for Liverpool.

Not really a mess, but there are a lot of changes going on for the squad that just won UCL. Just a lot of variables and unknowns right now.


Agree with that completely. Just thought "mess" was a bit of an over exaggeration.

#2857911 FIFA Career Mode Thread

Posted by C47 on 19 July 2014 - 10:25 AM

I know we have the Nervanda forum for gaming, but I thought a FIFA thread might be a good addition here. This is a place for FIFA gamers to discuss their career modes. Bargain buys, incredible deadline additions, guys you can't live without or maybe ones who are rated highly and fetch a pretty penny but you just don't like playing with? 


Recently I started an Inter Milan Manager Mode, and decided to shake up the team quite a bit. I took a risk bringing in a lot of young promising talent, building for the long haul. Sold most of my veterans for what I could get for them, and brought in a couple of key additions defensively at the first deadline (Inigo Martinez, Luke Shaw). With my defense where I wanted to be, the focus was to increase the value on a couple of the younger guys I had and sell big during the Summer of year two. I was able to do just that, and turned my attention to getting a world class shot stopper and goal scorer. Icardi was fine, and being only 21 has loads of potential, but I wanted someone who was stronger in the box. 


My first big signing was the shot stopper. Negotiated for awhile to get the price where I thought I could still go after my World Class #9. Took several weeks, but finally signed Courtois for 24.5m dollars and my existing GK. I tried making a move for a couple of ST, but by and large the values weren't favorable to me, so I just decided to roll with Icardi and Alverez who aren't a bad combo mind you. I exited the window without finding that World Class ST and decided to try again during the January window.


Then on the January Deadline Day I was able to strike gold....




This one was more difficult then grabbing Courtois once he went back to Chelsea tbh. Apparently Everton somehow bought Lukaku for good (not really sure how they were able to manage that tbh). Anyway, he was hurt during the preseason, and missed significant time. During the time he was out, Everton played Naismith up top and he became more than serviceable for them apparently. When Lukaku came back (I was keeping eyes on his stats throughout the Fall 2014, I noticed he wasn't starting every game as he had been before so I thought I might be able to make a run at him. Negotiated all of the January Window, and bled my transfer fee completely dry to get him, but finally was able to get a deal done for 18 million dollars plus Alverez who at the time was values anywhere from 18-25 million by my staff. Couldn't be more thrilled to land him. His strength and ability in the air is unreal, and at 20 years old he'll be a mainstay on my team for a LONG time. 


Anyway, exiting out of the January 2015 window, here's what my starting 11 looks like. Coming together quite well, and if I can manage to not get sacked for another season I may just mess around and win the Champions League in a year or two once these pups grow up!




Best part is with selling vets on large contracts I was able to create a ton of wage room (400K per week right now). So I could either bring in a big time star with Milan heading back to Champions League it looks like, or save it for when Lukaku, Kovacic, Shaw, Martinez and Bakkali come asking for big raises.

Falcao had the same injury that derailed Fernando Torres career.  He's a high risk comodity.


Exactly why I said IF he's healthy. It would depend entirely on the medical.

Everyone is arguing about James Rodriguez, Di Maria, Kroos, Khedira.....and I'm just over here wondering what number Lazar Markovic is going to get.

Don't forget hoping Reus rumor is legit.

#2838663 Panthers should sign Tim Howard

Posted by C47 on 02 July 2014 - 10:26 PM

Soccer fans always say soccer is ready to take off. But it never does. Sorry, but it is still going to take years for it to become main stream. If it ever does.

It is worse than watching flies fu(k. Boring as all get out. 90 minutes of action for a half dozen plays. Figure out a way to make it more exciting, then maybe it will take off.

That, and no one knows when the damm game is going to end. I mean, who keeps the clock? Does anyone? Do they just add some time to make the fans hang around that much longer?


Yet still better than Nascar and Baseball. Completely idiotic comment btw....



Soccers growth problem is that American's find it hard to develop a rooting interest. Clearly Americans will watch the sport in droves IF they have the vested interest in it. It's easy to rally around American pride and patriotism. Much harder to find a reason to support a European club week in and week out through a long club season. For the mainstream, it probably will be more of a "check in every now and then" kind of sport. However, I do think the World Cup has created some new fans, who will watch EPL, Bundesliga, Champions League etc to try and follow some of the young talent on this squad.
