he getting old
Not as his best, think i'll play Fleck alot more this season. signed a couple of free players Mellor from Preston and Sturidge from Man City.
_Man_u_barmy_army_ : Taouil from kilmarnok is a playmaker and a suitable replacement for a play like nakamura, but not in the set peice department

, why sell Nakamura in the first place?/?????,
he's not doing very well for hull!!
He wants an attacking central midfielder who will be able to take over when Nakamura retires or begins to degrade.
- Liverpool
- 10 M euros
- 165.000 week

i need a right defender (1st team), center back (young and for backup), right winger
(young and for backup)

any ideas? i was thinking of these ones:

rb- maicon or rafinha
cb- sakho
amr- obertan or cazorla

..but i would apreciate other opinions :)
Sakho will be expensive, and want to play. What about Papadopolus? RB hmm, Vanden Borre? Had him on LMA, know it not the samething but hey. AMR, that tricky, I would suggest Buonatotte (Spelling) but he AML. What about McGeady, he bit older. Another CB is Kacar, amazing stats. Hope those are good.
well papadoupoulos is a good one i didnt think of..he is good though? kacar i prefer him for DMC on CB i want them natural on the position...but he is pretty good :) about sakho, yeah they only sell him for 9 or 10 M its pretty much for a 19 year old player for the bench..but for the future he is great i think! vanden borre for rb is other good tip mate, i will send my scouts and ask how much the want.. for the right wing, buonanotte no mate..i like him a lot for midfield playmaker, behind the striker, but i already buy seedorf and giovinco, for 18 M euro both, i think a good business on 24 months each..i want a good right winger, for bench or to replace kuijt, cause i do9nt know how will be doing on the future!
uberzoom :ive started a new game with liverpool..im playing on a 4-2-3-1, so i had to buy 2 ofensive CM (seedorf 9.5 M euro and giovinco 10 M euro) cause at the start they only have gerard and its only efective on that position..
ive sell fabio aurelio, the gk gajke or something like that, and pennant, as i got others i prefer for that position, and i only play with 2 players for each position, only 3 gk and 3 strikers on my team.

i would like any sugestions to buy players, or telling me wich one will be good without the obvious...gerrard, torres, xabi, mascherano etc etc...

i think i would like to replace arbeloa, robbie keane, hyppia and benayoun as i dont think they are good!? any ideas folks or tips about liverpool!?

*i removed the other thread as it was useless imo.*


you have lots of midfielders. make sure you use them properly.

you dont always need to buy players. play 4-5-1. play Gerrard or someone as AMC under torres for support. make sure that 1 CM is defensive, or that you have 1 DM to cover at the back.
and push up the other midfielders, also in this case make sure you push up your defence and you get good offensive full backs and push them higher up if you arent gonna use wingers.
Liverpool doesnt need a lot of alteration at first.

Sell Hyppia, atleast at the end of the first season, you wont get much but he's just costing money until then. A new defender like Zapata maybe? Sakho is a good buy too.

I play two CM but set defensively with through balls often. Alonso and Mascherano are your regular pair and I wouldnt sell them, Lucas can rotate as you need. Long term Id suggest you invest in Ignacio Camacho. A must buy is Franco Zuculini. Get him early with a bid of £350,000 and then loan him out. Then get him to learn from Mascherano, if you play long enough he becomes ridiculously good, similar stats to de Rossi.

Play Gerrard in AMC and he is AMAZING, although you'll want someone who can play there as back up incase her gets tired (although Lucas is competent there). Jo Inge Berget would be decent backup.

Wingers, play Babel often on the left, he develops well. Kuyt on the right. Keep Benayoun until you can get another versatile attacking mid who can play on both wings as a backup for them. Long term you'll want to replace Kuyt cause hes too slow. Get Obertan maybe? Play him enough and he becomes awesome.

Strikers youre fine. Torres is obviously ace. One season he was injured for 4months but still ended top scorer with 38 in all comps. Also, that season N'gog got a lot of games, if you play him enough he becomes a wonder kid so consider giving him games. I'd keep Keane because he wont want to leave and no clubs will take him. He's pretty good, but if you're playing with one up front I personally would ship him out a.s.a.p and play N'gog a lot. Look at Keirrison, if you get him early and play him enough he becomes a wonderkid also.

Hope that helps.

If it's for the bench, Nakamura? Season or to. Papadopolus is good, strong. Had him at Celts when McManus was forward for corners in Euro Super cup v Tottenham Papa was able to cope with Keane and Berbatov. I suggested him above, Daniel Carriço, Sporting, amazing cb and young. And also Andriy Rusol, very underrated. Albiol, might be a bit much. What about Ashley Young, or Lennon?
Ashley Young is pretty expensive, Villa usually want well over £20mil for him, hes good and english, but not worth it.

Lennon is ok for the bench, you can usually get him pretty cheap, but long term he is truly terrible, his pace is good, but he never seems to develop, his stats dont change at all.

Balotelli would be versatile, can play striker or wing, and you could teach him to be AMC.

Oh any I agree about Rusol, got him for hearts and in 6months he scored 13 goals from set pieces, very handy!
Well young AMR, Saivet, I have him at Celts, went on load to Villa for a season, came back with 3 games to play. First Aberdeen in SPl, scored 4, second Arsenal in Champ Final, Scored diving header, we won 1-0. Last game v Hibs, scored we won, 1-0. I found early he was better out wide, maybe a loan move to a team like, Villa, Fulham would do him good, good back up for Kuyt, and Torres/N'Gog
Hey,

I've just created a Harchester Utd team that are starting out in League 2. I gave myself an even harder challenge of having NO transfer funds whatsoever! (the editor wouldn't allow me to!) So, I'm now looking for bargan basement players for free! Any ideas??

Also, the database I'm using is from the version 9.3 patch, edited of course for my Harchester team :-) note to others - Zoran Tosic is AMAZING in league 2, got him on loan from Utd. Also, Richie De Laet!

Cheers!

Gerard
Alvaro Novo
Babayaro =P

these 3 are free and should easily come to your team.

make sure Gerard and Novo get a slightly tougher schedule to start with so their attributes go up a bit.
