    I have Taylor and binned PVA. I have Krusnell as his backup, but he's nowhere near ready yet. Taylor has been canny enough but I could do with more competition.
    Thanks for the recommendations.

    There's loads of amazing full backs in South America TBF and you can get them relatively cheap.

    Work permits can be an issue sometimes.

    Full backs are pretty piss on the game you can't go wrong. I have Inigo Lekue who is only three star rated but he averages well over 7.30 as a right wing back or inverted left wing back.

    Surprised you bothered with him. Had a career with Auxerre and he only starts 3 star with 1 more black star. He's not very mobile anarl. Was the first player I ended up bombing to the reserves (along with that Mathis).

    Amazed you got that much for him anarl. Think I gave him to Anderlect for 200k in the January.

    @Gravyb0y
    I'm surprised. I remember they did highlight him as my best player in the pre season thing but he was only 3 star and Fomba/Konate went to 3.5 straight away.

    How'd you do in the French cup? Didn't do that well but my mate who I play with got to the semis with Strausberg. He knocked out PSG away in the QF(on pens) and afew of the shite clubs did just as well. Le Beinchorre (SP) in the national league dicked Monpeiller 6-2 and some team from the 5th division (below the CFA) got to the quarters. I get the feeling the French clubs don't give a shit about it :lol:

    Quarter final of league cup and lost to Monaco, lost to Bordeaux in tenth round of French cup.

    Konate is mint, and Fomba just been brought up from youth. Got a right back named Amirou who is looking promising, and a left back named Noam Trabe who's been good as well

    Definitely a winnable way into Europe (if you can even get Europe that way).

    They've got a ridiculous amount of good young players/the maxed potential is only 5star for what the team has which isn't a lot. Don't even recognise the names of the 2 you said :lol:. Had to check there. Amirou went on a free that other one is in the u23

    The regens from the first season are all too. Literally 6 5 star players and 3 4.5 from the intake.

    iirc Issa Samba and Boto were my full backs.

    Finding it hard to find decent young English players now. One regen was valued at 375k but Chelsea wanted 32mill :eek:
    Wages an issue anarl. Players wanting 30-40k to be rotation etc.
    Wanting to have a more English side but a lot harder trying to find appropriate players.

    Same I'm only on the second season as well

    who for im everton Oviedo is decent and I signed Adrian marin from villereal b team for 4mill don't play him every game but he is solid he is only 21 and is improving all the time. Julian green from buyern is a decent player for free and he is values at 15mill for me at the moment.

    They always are when you have the Scottish leagues loaded. They were ridicolous on last years game, I had a Ross County save and despite having a quality team I still couldn't get anywhere near them.

    Really really struggling defensively. Conceded 10 goals in 5 games this season.

    My team is letting teams like Norwich take the piss by playing Barca football around my box. I can't find anything to stop it.
    Seems like every year you get done on crosses no matter what too.

    Oh man Brendan Rodgers left Celtic for Leicester and it's left them stuck. They were 21 games unbeaten, won 18 drew 3 but they're now 4 games without a win - What a perfect time to play them and it's gotten me my first ever win against them. My overall record against them was Played 17 lost 16, drew 1 and the curse is broken!

    Next Manager is gonna either continue the Celtic domination or open the league wide open, but for now, Title race is on!

    My luck in Europe completely ran out. Drew to Dortmund in the 1st Knockout round in the Europa League, couldn't ask for a harder tie :D

    You wont sign regens from top clubs mate. Look at clubs you actually think you could poach from.

    I have about 10 English regens from Championship clubs or below, got the next Ashley Cole from MK Dons, a 5 star left winger from Norwich for 750k and a 5 star centre half from the Mags for a million. Cream of the crop is the target man I have from MK Dons for a million, got 20 in 19 in league 2 on loan at the minute and developing rapidly.

    getting a canny few job offers now but all the big teams have very aging squads I cannit be arsed to sort that shite out

    aye think ill try looking at the lower clubs and lower leagues.
    Wouldn't mind getting a few through the youth system

    New work permit system has spoiled the game a bit for me. Got a class regen who has 6 caps for Bosnia and he cant get a Work permit as Bosnia are too lowly ranked. Makes it practically impossible to pick up cheap non EU regens.

    I dont even bother looking at premier league sides on the youth intake now, waste of time.

    It's been in since FM 16? :p

    Also as FM plays real-life politics, it's nearly impossible for someone from the Balkans to get a Western European visa for political reasons.

    If you're wondering why it's easier to sign South Americans than it is people from the Balkans - Brazilians can get a Portuguese passport and Argentinians can get a Spanish passport so it's a fast-track into the EU for them lot. Politics is a ****.
