    I have Depay.
    Memphis DEPAY of £15,640,000 plus Lukas KLOSTERMANN and Dušan VLAHOVIĆ .

    I need a bigger squad is this a good deal?
    Will depay ever get 93 at barcelona?

    If I'm reading this right, Depay or Klostermann + Vlahovic + 15m?

    Duo and cash easy. Yes Depay might have a flying start to life at Barca and get 93. But Klostermann's versatility is great, he's a solid 91, could maybe get 92 if he's outstanding at Leipzig. Vlahovic looks to be one of the brightest young strikers in Italy, should rise further this season. With 15m you can buy a cheap 90 rated player to further boost squad numbers

    Without knowing the competitiveness of the GW or the specific needs of your squad, I'd say it's a solid deal.

  2. Liverpool manager wants to buy my Chiesa. I guess I can afford him to lose him if I can get a decent duo in return. Current offer is Richarlison + Ward Prowse. Don't know as either of them have enough to rise really, especially in their current situations. 

    I'm tempted to counter for Ferland Mendy + Saka/Kulusevski but not sure that'd be too fair

    Liverpool Squad


    Liverpool Youth



    My squad




  3. End of season transfer frenzy time. Ones on the left are my players

    Szczesny for Unai Simon? I don't think Szczesny is at particular risk, but I gather Gk ratings dont matter too much and i could use the extra cash to improve/reduce the age elsewhere.

    Carvajal for Digne/Castagne/Laimer? My full backs are Carvajal, Pavard, Cancelo and Calabria. I think Carvajal was potentially at risk of dropping last review and he's not getting any younger. Digne for me picks up too many injuries to stand a chance of getting to 92, plus Everton. Castagne has also had an injury hit season, but is younger, better club SM wise. Laimer I don't think really plays at RB for Leipzig but I'm not 100% sure if someone could confirm/deny. I'm leaning towards Castagne atm

    Orban for Romero/Akanji? More of an age thing here. I'd think if Orban was to get 91 at Leipzig, he would have done so by now. Romero seems to be rated highly after a good season at Atalanta, and at Juve he can go higher. Akanji is the only other option available right now, not sure if he's good enough to get 91? Romero seems sensible choice

    Bennacer/Neves/Can/Asensio/Plea for Gerard Moreno/Olmo/Andre Silva/En Nesyri/Bamba? Lot to unpack here. Is Bennacer good enough to get 91? He's still young so got plenty of time. Ruben Neves would probably need a move to get 92, but again still young ish and he gets linked every now and again. Emre Can, not sure how safe he is but he can cover at CB too which can be handy. Asensio, not sure how safe he is and he's still just about clinging on as young ish. Plea I can't see rising any further, a case of sell him while he's peaked? Gerard Moreno can only go down from here, and at Villareal he might struggle to keep a higher rating comapred to if he was at Barca say. Dani Olmo has looked decent at the Euros, has potential to rise further for sure. Andre Silva got 91 on the back of an impressive season at Frankfurt, can he keep it up at Leipzig, will have to do well to get 92 there. Don't know enough about En Nesyri or Bamba.. I think Olmo and Silva would be the best choice to bring in


  4. In a GGW, I've played 8 matches from the 26th June to tonight. 5 games from the 2nd July to tonight. Half the team are dead on their feet. The other half are dead, which has probably cost me a chance at a place in SMFA Cup final. And yet there are odd weeks during the season where friendlies are played. Hopefully when the elusive SM update comes out they'll sort out this ridiculous scheduling...

  5. Worth selling Pavard or Calabria for Wan Bissaka? Is AWB likely to get 91 in the next week or so?

    I'm hoping to grab TAA on a level 5 concern soon, obvs he would be first choice RB, so really it's who would be the best back up?

    I could move Pavard to CB and sell Orban, which now that I think of it could be a good idea. 

    At LB I have Chilwell and Theo, so don't see Calabria being worth moving there. Although the versatility could be useful..

    Very very off topic, but can anyone remember when reputation on the forum used to be by green squares instead of numbers?

    The higher your rep the more squares you received, I also vaguely remember them becoming a lighter green the more you got.

    Think I’m showing my age now, must of been nearly 10 years ago now 😂

    This probably makes zero sense 🤣

    Yes! I remember the Help with Deals thread was always the place to go..

    I remember pre-forum me seeing Iker Muniain as a 17 year old 85 rated player and thinking I must get him he's going to be immense.. probably my earliest SM memory

  7. Can afford one of these, who would be the best choice with the reviews imminent

    1) Chiesa

    2) Locatelli plus Curtis Jones

    3) Kessie plus Curtis Jones

    Chiesa, Locatelli and kessie would all be starters, Jones one for the hopefully not too distant future

  8. Have these deals from external accepted, and now the other manager I was bidding agaisnt has pulled out so do I want to carry on with these?

    Laporte + £4m for A. Davies (I use Laporte as LB so it's like for like)

    Lenglet + £8m for De Ligt

    Klostermann + £4m for Skriniar

    Ndidi + £8m for De Jong

    Sell Digne, for me personally I think Chilwell will have a higher ceiling playing for Chelsea.

    Sell: Van De Beek + Calhanoglu

    I would swap Sabitzer for Bennacer but you have plenty of options in midfield.

    Digne since it's a backup

    VDB and Calhanoglu. Can see Bennacer for Sabiter too.


    Thanks guys

  10. Digne or Chilwell to sell? Whoever I keep would be back up to Theo Hernandez


    Sell 2 from the following: 

    Ruben Neves, Ndidi, Bennacer, Tielemans, Barella, Valverde, Kessie, Oyarzabal, Grealish, Calhanoglu, Van De Beek, Havertz (incoming)

    I'm thinking it's between Bennacer, Calhanoglu and DVDB. Would you sell a third to get Sabitzer?

  11. This is my current squad playing 4-2-3-1 narrow

    RB - Meunier/Calabria

    CB - Maguire/Militao/Zouma/Orban

    LB -Digne/Chilwell

    DM - Ndidi/Neves/Danilo Periera/Kessie

    AM - Bennacer/Tielemans/Barella/Grealish/Rebic/Calhanoglu/Van De Beek

    ST - Oyarzabal/Ibra/Ings

    The following are on transfer request, or will be imminently, and I have enough cash to buy them all but obviously can't guarantee I will get them all.

    Lucas Hernandez/Pavard/Hakimi/Valverde/Felix/Haaland

    I'm thinking of selling Militao, Zouma, Meunier, Danilo Pereira, Rebic and Ings


    Opinions? TIA

    Duo if you want the high ratings


    Moreno and Locatelli

    Kimpembe, I think he could go beyond 91 in the future.

    Reguillon + Pau Torres, looking toward the future again.


    Moreno and Locatelli.

    Thanks for the responses guys, some context below which might help


    My current CBs are Ginter, Felipe, Can and Orban with Stones incoming. I was thinking Orban and Felipe are only going to go down from this point on, where as Kimpembe has potential to rise and is younger. 


    My full backs are Walker, Sandro, Cancelo and Calabria with Carvajal incoming. Similarly to the above, Walker and Sandro will only go down. Carvajal has a year or so on Walker in age, and I think with Cancelo impressing Walker might find playing time reduced. I was thinking of selling Walker and Sandro and getting younger bodies in with Reguillon and Torres. Torres probably does need a move to rise further though. This would allow me to move Can into midfield

  13. I've just won the SMFA Cup so have come into a bit of money. I'm buying John Stones and Florian Neuhaus, and have a deal agreed to sell my Griezmann for Carvajal and Asensio. This allows me to have the options to do some of the following, thoughts? Bold are my players


    M. Felipe and Orban for Kimpembe?

    Kyle Walker and Alex Sandro for Reguillon and Pau Torres?

    Brozovic for Maddison?

    Haller and Papu Gomez for Gerard Moreno or Yusuf Poulson and Amiri or Locatelli?
