Thiago Almada is a must buy. Turns out one of the best players in the game. Make sure put a really high release clause in though. Barca stole him off me for about 25m. Could easily if got more.

Wuilker Fariñez - a 21 year old goalkeeper - dirt cheap and is world class and also Gonzalo Montiel - good replacment for tav - argentina international and can be picked up for less then 10mill


Anyone recommned a really good centre mid player?

Got Pietro Pellegri on loan for 2yrs to replace Alfie, Jones, Kent & aribo are tearing it up for me, Kane Ritchie-Hosler/Kai/Dapo/McPake/Patterson all making great progress.

Picked up Lewis Baker from Chelsea for £3mil, Kelleher (Liverpool) GK cover £700k

Aleix Garcia for free (Man City), Freddy Woodman free (Newcastle)

Troy Parrott (Spurs ) & Ben Wooburn (Liverpool) both on loan as atk cover

Hickey (Hearts) £2mil brilliant buy imo, Cochrane (Hearts) £200k tremendous cover and progressing well.

Biggest outlay is £14mil for Matvienko as 1st choice CB & £8mil for Jayden Bogle as Tav replacement as soon as his transfer goes through

For Rangers?

I bought Renato Tapia in my first season as he was listed, he’s far too good for the SPFL. Likewise Lovro Majer, he’s brilliant in a Mezzala or Roaming playmaker role.

Trincao can be bought for around a million at the start of the game, like in real life hes a cracking player. Hickey from Hearts is also a brilliant signing at the start. Abel Ruiz you can get on loan from Barca. Ended up buying him outright second season after buying the editor lol.

Halfway through season 3. Going for 3 in a row and back to back trebles. Reasonably decent in Europe too. Starting 11 at the minute:

pereira
Tav
Goldson
Katic
Barisic
Mctominay
Aribo
Jack
Hagi/H.Wilson
Kent
Morelos

4-3-3 wide gegenpress. Play the 2 wingers as inside forwards though. Have a good young backup too. Signed a young lad Barry from Villa as a back up to Alfredo. Lethal in front of goal.

Harry Wilson I signed on 2 season long loans. Iv tried to keep as many of our current players as I could just to see how far I could actually take them. Jones from the bench is a very effective inside forward off the left. Iv signed a couple of fullbacks on loan as backup too. The CL cash gives u a decent sized pot to spend. Obv the likes of mcgregor and Davis retire. And at the start I sold arfield to fund Hagi. Hagi hasn’t improved that much in the 2 seasons to be fair.

Just got sacked as Rangers manager 1 game from the end of my first season ! Ragin . I had tied up Hagi and a few other promising players as well for season 2 . Draws killed me I had 14 draws in the spl
Try changing attacking tactics to overload during the game when looking to win and most of the time I managed to grab a goal or two.

Turnbull is a must. One of the best midfield goalscorers I’ve had. Punched way above his weight wining POTY when I had a CL contender side. Does the business in the league
I’ve just picked him up for 500k half way through my second season...

Had always been reluctant to sign him as his pace was only 7.

Can’t fit him in to my midfield as Jack, Aribo, Kenny McLean & Lewis Ferguson are all rotating so I’ll stick him out on loan for 6 months.

His pace holds him back in Europe but if you have industrial midfielders supporting him in either the AP/Mez or even DLP he will bang them in. Great penalty taker as well

The only thing is that I am basing it off of his pre-January update stats but given his injury I doubt they have changed much

Won the treble in my first season & doing well domestically in my second season...

Terrible performance in CL though & finished last in group.


Sold Tav for £30m & replaced him with Nathaniel Clyne on a free.

I've invested most of that in a load youngsters with high potential & put the majority out on loan.


I think i overestimate/over think the game at times though as i always like to do a Walter Smith & have a core of Rangers fans/British players & coaches.

I've brought in Nathaniel Clyne, Liam Lyndsay, Scott Mckenna, Barry Douglas, Kenny McLean (loan), David Turnbull, Lewis Ferguson, Sam Cosgrove (loan) & Mason Greenwood (loan) to compliment my foreign signings

You do need a core of homegrown club & nation players for the EL/CL though, so you’re doing the right thing.

I love the game & don't have many complaints, but one thing that frustrates me is how hard it is to loan out foreign wonderkids to domestic clubs to help them settle in Scotland & get them homegrown status.

Even offering them wage free doesn't seem to work when targeting domestic clubs.

Definitely mate...

Where I take it too far though is bypassing really good coaches with their Continental Pro license in favor of Jimmy, Nic, Super Ally, Dado Prso, Big Jig & Terry Butcher because I think they'd be good to have around the training ground :))

In my head Jimmy Bell is still cutting about too.

Ive got Defoe as my reserves manager, he’s got some nice stats though.

Have you tried changing their wage to 0% as you mentioned, and making them a regular starter or squad player instead of key player? Might make a difference.

If they’re excellent they’ll get the games anyway.

I'll give that a bash thanks...

It's frustrating as there's always an abundance of foreign clubs looking to take them on loan as well as pay their wages, but I'd rather pay their wages myself & make them home grown.

I also have Thistle as my feeder club, but the really good youngsters don't want to drop to the championship.

Once the youth/training facilities are state of the art they develop well in the reserves. Just get the best coaches you can get and make sure they’re specialising to at least 4 stars in each category.

Laptops a peace of shit and takes some time to load (especially the Europa games) but enjoying it so far. 6 points off they bastards at the start of December. Made a lady's front bottom of it 1 game and they bet me (still to play them 3 times). Bet them in the final of the league cup and qualified after 4 games in the Europa group stage. Will look up some of the players mentioned. Will sell arfield but don’t think I’ll sign Hagi, not been that great for me

I think there’s a couple faults with the game. Take Alex Lowry for example, he was getting regular games for ICT in the Prem at 17 (on loan) & then no SPFL teams would take him at 18 or 19 despite the fact he was a better player now. Ended up fast tracking him into my squad & had to loan out Kelly to make room.

I played a season with Rangers and discovered the following.

Alfie is not that good, Defoe is better.
Andy Halliday is good cover at LB
Greg Stewart was a goal machine at AMR
I thought i was going to phase Defoe out in my second season but he's still superb...

I play 2 up front & his flick ons & general link up play is still better than my other strikers (Morelos, Cosgrove, Greenwood, Ryan Edmonson).

Like I said previously, I'm the sentimental sort, so there's a place in my backroom staff for him when he decides to chuck it :))

I didn’t even play Defoe at all. Must’ve gave 5 appearances all in in 2 seasons. Near the end of my 3rd season now. Morelos an absolute monster in front of goal but been sent off twice v the taigs this season in 1-0 wins. Once after scoring the winner 2 minutes before. :D

I had scouts watching him, looks a player. He’s ‘dubbed the new Ian Wright’
I got him on a free with a cross border fee. Stuck him on for the suspended Alfie in a league cup 1/4 at dens and he rattled a hattrick. Hasn’t looked back. Scored a double away to a schalke too.

Alan Hutton has been "That Guy" for me...

The mad bastard is only an emergency back up, but every time he plays he gets a yellow at bare minimum.
