I bought Iker Mouniain from Athletic Bilbao, we all know him, don't we. He had 17 goals, 20 assists in 40 matches THAT SEASON. I splashed 35 mil at him, considering it will be worth it.
I am half-through my season, and he barely has 4 goals and 3 assists. I played him alot, but he can't. He always gets ratings between 5.50 to 7.00. Just made a 9.30 one, but luckily. He does incredible mistakes too.
Should I sell him? I put him on a finishing training schedule, didn't work. Don't know what to do. HALP
No, put him as the default training schedule and put him as a centre attacking midfielder, if you havnt got on in your formtion, place him as a striker and had faith, he will improve. And its Munain
1. Its Muniain ( I wrote it wrong )
2. I startd to loose my patience, as he has 1 v 1 vs the goal keeper, passes him and shoots next to the goal, not legit.
3. Should I try and find him a new club, or is it worth the wait
try sending him on loan.
play him as a trequartista if you arent already
Try training him as a Left Attacking Midfielder and then put him as Inside Forward,If u play that way.
I use 4-2-3-1, so I might use it, but i use BALE as a LAM, since he's pure... PURE money.
I usually play him on the center, but RARELY as a striker, since I have Cavani and Nilmar to do the job.
Lately he showed improvements, but still has blatant mistakes. Will try Trequerista, played him as Poacher
If u have Bale why don't u try making Bale over lap Iker Munian,as Iker would be cutting inside[on to his strongest foot.

A gap would appear for Iker to ghost into between the C.Defender and the Wing Back.

VOTE:Iker Munian for Attacking Midfield Left
You should try 2-strikers tactics, with Muniain as trequatista and Cavani as poacher, he would be more effective. Make Muniain learn placed shot and focus on composure? I have only played him once (because of his price tag :( ) but he worth the money though.

Bale plays best AML, atleast on MY tactic. I'm not dropping that possition for Muniain, since Bale is ten tons over his quality. World Golden Ball, 22 goals and 25 assists in 42 appearances last season? Can't touch that.
I'm curently trying to improve Muniain, and (?) played him in all my late matches, great play by him. Will try your oppinions and train him for composure and placed shot, but he always bitches its too much training lol.

Question : Should I play Cavani as my start player, Trequerista/Poacher. And should I keep Nilmar as backup? When Cavani plays awful, Nilmar shines, and vice-versa. Hard stuff.
Also, how should I improve Douglas Costa?
Ok cool Bro..i hope u get the best out of munian.
Cavani is a Class Act,I play him as a poacher or complete forward.
Nilmar is a good guy to come of the bench about 60-70 min's,because of his pace he's more likely to get goal's as the oppisition get tired.
Douglas Costa i have never brought so i could'nt hit u up on that one.
What other striker's do u have?
I rarely use Mauro Zarate and Muniain for striker, but I usually keep Zarate AMR (Till I got Costa, I'll see about it). I had Moussa Sow, but sold him due to a relationship breakdown.

Costa has a great precission, 18freekick, long range shots. I got him in a training trying to make him stop shooting from long range THAT MUCH. Should I get him on FINISHING or LONG SHOTS, since he misses most of the time, but when its a goal... damn

Stegen is also doing fabulous, best spent 10mil in my life. Any special training to improve him?

I'll post an SS of my team, asking for oppinions (I'm not looking to strenghten anything tbh, i'm on a 25 matches unbeaten. Kicked MANUTD, Liverpool, PSG, Chelsea. All of them, but inputs would be nice)

I think your team is very strong,u should concentrate on just getting the best out of them.
A team who play together for a long time just get better and better,25 game's unbeaten u are not doing much wrong.Just make sure the mood in the camp is superb toward's the end of the season,as team's fight for everything going survival,title's cup's etc....

p.s how do u get a screen shot up on your reply?
play bale as an attacking left back and allow him to run at defenders from deep. nad play muniain up front a treq
#48068 toonman8589 : play bale as an attacking left back and allow him to run at defenders from deep. nad play muniain up front a treq

I preffer keeping bale attacking left, and I play muniain as front treq, he doing better, yea.
Its ALT+f9, then you get it from My Documents - Sega Interactive or what was it - FM - Screenshots
You upload it on imgur, much easy.
My curent results in the league.
Kinda stretching to win against tougher sides, Man City, Man UTD, I feel I could improve my defence, but I need inputs. Curently having 50mil, but I don't want to spend it on players that won't do good, its a risk that I'm not taking for now. Inputs? Should I improve my defence? How can I improve Stegen, he's awesome, but still young and determined.
