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.
For Rangers?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?
hagi refused to sign for meHalfway through season 3. Going for 3 in a row and back to back trebles. Reasonably decent in Europe too. Starting 11 at the minute:
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.
Game and Argos are selling it for £20 but you would need to wait on delivery
Its £27 for a digital copy
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.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
I’ve just picked him up for 500k half way through my second season...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
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 wellI’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.
You do need a core of homegrown club & nation players for the EL/CL though, so you’re doing the right thing.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
Definitely mate...You do need a core of homegrown club & nation players for the EL/CL though, so you’re doing the right thing.
Ive got Defoe as my reserves manager, he’s got some nice stats though.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.
I'll give that a bash thanks...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 started to squad player instead of key player? Might make a difference.
If they’re excellent they’ll get the games anyway.
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.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.
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'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.

I thought i was going to phase Defoe out in my second season but he's still superb...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 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.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 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.I had scouts watching him, looks a player. He’s ‘dubbed the new Ian Wright’
Alan Hutton has been "That Guy" for me...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.
