    Just checked and he is in the DB I have loaded so you can pick him if you want. The players don’t have to be in those divisions that is just a guide so that people can check if the player they want is available.
    Not sure if he is in the DB so I have put you down for his brother Virgil instead 😛
    Nice pick mate 👍🏻

    Vibe Community Event: CentreBack FC
    When I was a kid back at the beginning of professional football defenders were always just the big lads that couldn’t really play but got stuck in. As time has gone on defenders have become more capable on the ball and nowadays certainly at the top level centre backs are expected to have the same ability on the ball as midfielders.
    To see how good modern day CB’s really are as all round footballers I decided it would be fun to play a save only using CB’s in the outfield positions. Following a brainstorming session with @Ashez we decided that it would great to make this a community event and allow you guys to send me your favourite CB and see which is the most “complete” CB on Vibe.
    How this works
    I want to make 2 XI’s of CB’s which I will then play in alternative matches so this means I need 20 players in total. This is where you guys come in as what I want you guys to do is nominate a CB to be your entry for this and I will then use the IGE to transfer that player to my chosen club and change there name to your Vibe screen name. The first 10 CB will be Team A and the 2nd 10 will make up Team B I will then do a draw for each position based on the number you nominated so the first person to nominate is number 1 and so on. The CB with the highest AvR will be declared the overall winner with then a winner in Defence, Midfield and Attack for both teams.
    Once we have our squad of CB’s I will then start a save most likely in Italy and I will begin a Career thread so you guys can all follow your players progress. I will give more details on that once we have picked the squad.
    So in summery.
    Comment below with the CB that you wish to represent you. The player can be green in other positions on the pitch but he must be natural as a centre back. I will do a draw to decide which position that your nominated player will play on the pitch. I will play the 2 teams alternately in matches so that all players have an even chance of winning. There will be an overall winner, a winner from each XI and then winners based on where they play on the pitch so defence, midfield and attack. The winners will be based on AvR. If you need to check if a player you want to nominate is in the DB I will be loading the top divisions from Italy, Spain, England and Germany but you can pick any player so long as they are in that DB.
    I will be using the Gegenpressing tactic that Ashez and myself created as it is a proven tactic and it tends to create high ratings across the team although it’s never been tested with a team of CB’s! As this tactic uses a player in the DM role which as we all know will result in low AvR’s mine and Ashez player nominations will play that role so that everyone else has a good chance of winning. We will both be making the final player nominations to let you guys get in with the players you want first.
    You can find out more about the tactic here.
    The key thing to remember is that the player you choose could end up playing anywhere on the pitch except GK so it’s worth putting some thought into who you go for. 
    So don’t be shy get commenting with your nominations and hopefully we can have some fun with this.

    Foxy reacted to Nucleus in FMM19 Training: Which Intensity?   
    Part One: Intensive Training
    Massive apologies for the delay lads. It’s been a hectic week to say the least! 
    In part one of this experiment we will be looking at the pros and cons of having each player on the intensive training setting. Each member of the chosen starting XI will play every game possible up until the 1st of January, the only exception is when a player is unavailable through injuries or suspension.
    First off, let’s briefly run through the starting XI and the formation that I’ll be using. 
    Formation:-

    As you can see, this is a fairly standard 4-3-2-1 formation. It’s a slight variation on @PriZe‘s Black Pearl tactic that has proven to be a very popular tactic in the past few years.
    Starting XI:-
    GK: David De Gea
    RB: Diogo Dalot
    LB: Luke Shaw
    RCB: Eric Bailly
    LCB: Victor Lindelof
    RCM: Ander Herrera
    CM: Nemanja Matic
    LCM: Paul Pogba
    RW: Marcus Rashford
    LW: Anthony Martial
    ST: Romelu Lukaku
    I’d personally like to think that this squad is a fairly balanced one in terms of this experiment. We have young talents in the likes of Rashford and Dalot. Experienced heads in Matic and De Gea. Players nearing or at their peak in Pogba and Lukaku, and also a couple of players who are known to take a knock now and again in Shaw and Bailly. I purposefully put those two in as I’d like to see what the different intensities can do for an injury prone player, Luke Shaw especially.
    The Results:-
    Now is the time to reveal how these eleven players got on whilst all under the influence of intensive training.
    David De Gea:
    Season Start:

    Injuries:

    End of Test:

    Attribute Change:
    Communication +1
    Handling +1
    Leadership +1
    Total = +3
    Only the ten days out injured for our number one, and with little room for improvement anyway it was nice to see his Handling, Communication and Leadership get boosted by a point each.
    Diogo Dalot:
    Start of Season:

    Injuries: N/A
    End of Test:

    Attribute Change:
    Crossing +3
    Dribbling +3
    Shooting +1
    Tackling +3
    Creativity +1
    Decisions +2
    Movement +1
    Positioning +1
    Total = +15
    No injuries whatsoever for the young right back and he improved immensely in the short time we played this save, a massive 15 points across the board actually.
    Luke Shaw:
    Season Start:

    Injuries: N/A 😳
    End of Test:

    Attribute Change: N/A 
    What a strange result on the part of this player. When I first set up the save I was rooting for him to miss the majority of the save but in a huge twist, he didn’t suffer a single injury. On the downside he didn’t improve as a player in the slightest. Shaw has a lot of bad hidden attributes in any save in this game, most notably that he’s “unprofessional”. Not sure if it’s me being bias but I believe that’s a very very unfair attribute to give him. He’s been the complete opposite of unprofessional each and every time Mourinho threw him under the bus or questioned him on his weight etc. He always came back and gives a 100% each time. Anyway, moving on!
    Eric Bailly:
    Season Start:

    Injuries: N/A
    End of Test:

    Attribute Change:
    Aerial +1
    Passing +1
    Shooting +1
    Decisions +1
    Total = +4
    Another player that I was expecting to take a knock in this save, and once again it’s a player that didn’t suffer from any injuries under IT. A four point attribute gain has seen him develop into a fantastic player either way.
    Victor Lindelof:
    Season Start:

    Injuries:

    End of Test:

    Attribute Change:
    Passing +1
    Creativity +1
    Decisions +1
    Positioning +1
    Total = +4
    A two week injury lay off for the Swede whilst on IT. Nothing major and he’s gained in a few vital attributes for his role in the team.
    Ander Herrera:
    Season Start:

    Injuries:


    End of Test:

    Attribute Change: N/A
    Injured on two separate occasions, one a 10 day injury and the other a more hefty three week lay off. All in all it’s missing around a month of football which is a shame and also makes him the biggest casualty so far in this test. The injuries reflected on his attribute change as there quite simply wasn’t any.
    Nemanja Matic:
    Season Start:

    Injuries: N/A
    End of Test:

    Attribute Change: N/A
    Well that was a boring result!
    Paul Pogba:
    Season Start:

    Injuries:


    End of Test:

    Attribute Change:
    Leadership +1
    Total = +1
    A couple of injuries for Pogba in this test, nothing major but a two week and ten day lay off respectively dents any hope of him improving as a player apart from a +1 gain in Leadership
    Marcus Rashford:
    Start of Season:

    Injuries:

    End of Test:

    Attribute Change:
    Crossing +1
    Dribbling +3
    Passing +1
    Shooting +1
    Tackling +1
    Creativity +1
    Movement +3
    Positioning +1
    Strength +1
    Total = +13
    A two week lay off at the start of the league season didn’t put this man off improving, as he gains a huge 13 points overall. Is that down to intensive training or is he simply showing his potential either way?
    Anthony Martial:
    Start of Season:

    Injuries: N/A
    End of Test:

    Attribute Change:
    Aerial +1
    Dribbling +2
    Passing +1
    Shooting +1
    Tackling +1
    Leadership +1
    Movement +1
    Stamina +2
    Total = +10
    Same as Rashford really, massive gain in attributes with 10 points gained whilst suffering no injuries. Again, is that IT doing its job or is it simply him showing his potential like Rashford before him?
    Romelu Lukaku:
    Start of Season:

    Injuries:

    End of Test:

    Attribute Change:
    Aerial +3
    Shooting +1
    Decisions +3
    Leadership +1
    Movement +3
    Strength +1
    Total = +12
    A ten day injury didn’t put this man off from gaining huge numbers on his page! 12 points and most if not all are in primary attributes for his role. Being our main goalscoring outlet I had a feeling this would happen as he’s bound to receive better ratings than say what a defender would. This in turn leads me to believe that either the training system is heavily flawed, or the ratings system is, or worse, both. I know what I think..
    Grand Total Attribute Gain: +62 Points
    Average Gain per Player: +5.63 Points
    Injuries: 8
    Total Length: 3 months and 1 week
    Average Length of Injury: 11 Days
     
    Conclusion:
    I honestly thought we’d see a lot more injuries than we did. 8 injuries in six months spread across 11 players is nothing really, and when you factor in that the average length of injury was 11 days then it’s even better. On average each player gained 5.63 points on their pages which in six months is decent going. The real questions will be asked once the results of the other two intensities have been released so at the moment all this is slightly irrelevant!
    As always Vibe I thank you for reading, and please do remember to leave a comment, even if it’s a question. Part Two will follow in the next few days 😁

    Foxy got a reaction from glajmate in FMM19: Tips For Lower League Success   
    FMM19: Tips for Lower League Success
    Lower league management (LLM) is one of the most satisfying ways to play FMM19 as you take your chosen team from lower league obscurity to the top table of world football. There are many aspects of management that you need to master to build your club and hopefully this guide will give you some ideas that will help you on your road to glory.
    This is written with a focus on the English lower leagues or more specifically my save with Oxford Utd but the tips can be transferred to any other nations lower leagues in the game.
     
    Don’t look for the perfect player, look for the effective player.
    This may sound obvious but you are never going to find the perfect player when you are down in the lower leagues and you will need to compromise somewhere when you sign players or evaluate your squad. This isn’t as big a problem as it sounds as every club is in the same position so it’s just a case of being clever and sniffing out the players that can be effective for you.
    What you need to do is concentrate on the key attributes for the roles you need and build from there. It is unlikely you will find a winger who can cross, dribble, run like Usain Bolt and also have good shooting and passing. The key is to work out what you want your players to do within your tactic and then look for players that have those specific attributes. If you have a big target man striker in your squad then look for players that can cross and are quite quick, if you have a quick striker with good finishing then look for midfielders who have good passing and creativity who can play through balls for him to run onto.
    Remember that the number you are looking for in each attribute gets lower as you go down the leagues so 14 crossing would be ok in the Championship but excellent once you get to the Vanarama leagues.
    To find out more on player attributes and what roles need which attribute please check out @PriZe A-Z guide under this link.
    Take this guy for example.

    Inih isn’t the greatest striker to ever lace up a pair of football boots, he lacks football intelligence and his stamina isn’t up to much either but he has some attributes that can make him very effective right up to League 1 level with the right players around him as well.
    You can see from his highlighted attributes that he has good key attributes for a target man but he is still a compromise as he lacks technique, aggression, teamwork and passing that would make him an even better target man. You can sign him from Dover for around £35k and if you can get wingers that can cross the ball he will get you goals as I proved in League 1 when I used him for Oxford.

    After his 44 goal season I then managed to sell him for £1m to Blackburn making an excellent profit on a £35k initial outlay whilst he also got the goals to help me win League 1.
    This brings me onto my next tip.
     
    No player is bigger then the club so sell if a good offer comes in and reinvest
    It’s understandable that you will become attached to the players that have been doing the business for you and that you may want to stay loyal to them as you move up the leagues but money talks at all levels of football. After promotion to the Championship it was clear to me that I would need a better striker than Inih if I wanted to challenge for promotion and his value had grown from £30k  when I bought him to £1.1m so it was the perfect time to sell whilst he was relatively hot property following his 44 goal season. I offered him out and Blackburn came in with a £1m so he was off.
     
    Sometimes it’s not a player that you know isn’t good enough for the level above and it’s a player that you would like to keep but the money is just too good to turn down.
    That’s the situation I faced with Cameron Brannagan who was developing into a good Championship level midfielder but that was attracting the attention of other clubs.

    As good as he is for the level of football we play when Leeds came in with £6m for him I didn’t think too much about it before I accepted the deal. That £6m could go a long way with half of it going into improving the squad, plus a good increase on the wage budget which help in getting us promotion ready. I was then able to convince the board to improve the training ground twice meaning it went from a below average to a good rating which will enable more of my players to improve then just one midfielder and it sets us up for the next few seasons behind the scenes.
     
    Look to sign youngsters who have been released or transfer listed
    This method can be applied to any age of player and you want a good balance in the squad between youngsters who are developing through game time and training and players that are at their peak and are good consistent performers at the level you currently play.
     You can often pick up bargains at the end of the season as bigger clubs cull there reserve players that are out of contract. They may be players that will never make it at the top level but they could be good enough at your current level and they may develop to play a level or two higher or after a good season or two you may sell them at a profit. This rule also applies in the transfer market and it is possible to pick up players that other clubs don’t want at a cut price if you spend the time to look for them and are willing to haggle.
    Personally I love a freebie so I like to look for the players that have been released and start to look around for these players in January using the player search. You could look by positions and add in some attribute filters as well but I like to start with a general search of all players that have contracts expiring,  are 21 or under, have an EU passport (if I am managing in an EU country) and would be interested in signing for me. I can then look through the full list and see if anyone takes my fancy but that is a personal choice and you may want to refine the list by position from the start. I can then start to refine my search after I can had a scan through the full list and I often use value as a guide as if I can get a fairly high value player for nothing then great.
      
    This search turned up a few interesting players that I could then add to my shortlist to make sure I can keep an eye on them. One useful thing to do is not be blinded by looking for attributes that are good enough at the time of signing for the to play in the team now. This Italian striker caught my eye as a good example of the type of player I would look for as he has some good base attributes as a target man and he is only 17.

    He isn’t going to be good enough at a higher level but if you could get him in at a smaller club he could be a useful player and with playing time he is very likely to improve and could prove to be a good player that you eventually sell for much more then he cost.
    You can’t solely go on value though as I found this GK as I looked based on youngest players and he would be a good signing lower down the leagues in my opinion as he again has the base attributes and if you can give him some game time then he could develop and with a current wage of £50 I’m sure he would be affordable.

    The important thing to remember is that these players need to get some playing time in order to develop so it’s important not to stockpile these players and then stick them in the reserves to rot. Time on the bench can often see a player improve a little when they are young and you can also try and loan them out for a while if you don’t feel they will get the playing time they need.
     
    Improve the club facilities as often as the board will allow you

    If you want to get even more out of these players then better facilities are going to help, as this allows you to have more backroom staff which is going to benefit the players development and health as you can have extra physios as well. I personally would always focus on the training ground before the youth facilities as I can’t see much point having good youngsters come through the youth setup if they have a ploughed field to play on once they are in the first team. Once the training ground is getting better you can then think about asking the board to improve the youth facilities but trying to do both at the same time is going to eat into your transfer and wage budgets so I like to concentrate on just one at a time.
     
    Exploit the loan market

    This might not be everyone’s cup of tea as it isn’t realistic because in real life there are restrictions on loans that aren’t in the game but this is a game and I am happy to exploit something that is in the game and isn’t cheating.
    It could be seen as short term thinking as you are essentially helping other clubs develop there youngsters but in the lower leagues you need to balance long term thinking like updating the training ground alongside the immediate priority of getting promoted. When money is tight you need to make every penny count and the loan market can mean you bring in players that are of a better quality then you can actually afford if you tried to buy them and of course with regular game time they are likely to get better as the season goes on.
    I hope I have given you a few things that might help you in your next LLM save and help you achieve your goals. If you have any tips of your own why not comment below.

    Foxy got a reaction from Woody in The Draft: A 3 season h2h2h battle!   
    Foxy Season 1
    It falls to me to post my results first and that means I go in completely blind as I have no idea if my results were good, bad or amazing. You have seen all the squads and we all have some absolute worldies that have been built around our individual tactics so the margain for error is going to be very small I think.
    Injuries
    With 23 man squads we can be susceptible to an injury crisis and although I never got to that point during the season I did have a few players have some time on the sidelines for a decent amount of time. 
    It was Kylian Mbappe Who I was hoping to be my main goal threat that had the most time out with 2 injuries that totalled 6 weeks. I also had Martial, Dybala and Alli miss significant spells during the season.
    There is plenty of strength to back up the odd injury in the squad so no excuses.
    Cup Competitions
    Our first chance of silverware came against Arsenal in the League Cup final and we put in an excellent performance to win the trophy.
     
    Next up was the FA Cup and this time we had Man City to contend with in the final and it was another comprehensive win for us under the Wembley arch.

    We made it a hat trick of cup wins in the Champions League final as we took on Real Madrid. This game was statistically closer but our superior fire power won the day for us.

     
    Premier League
    The way our scoring system works every game matters but of course the league is still the bread and butter of this save as it has the most points to play for. With that in mind I was delighted to get an unbeaten season but that doesn’t tell the full story. I had 3 draws which means if any of the other lads have 1 more win than me they will score as many points even if they lose a couple of games.

    Team Stats
    As I hoped Mbappe was top scorer but it’s a shame he missed so many games and he could have got a lot more than the 37 goals he did get. Dybala was involved in the most goals with 33 for himself and 26 assists.
    Points 
    So how does this all add up for my season 1 score?
    Remember it is 3 points for a win and 1 for a draw in all competitions with goal difference being used as a decider.
    I went the whole season unbeaten but I did have 5 draws which could be a major factor.

    59 x 3 = 177 + 5 = 182 points
    Goal Difference = 156 points
    Not a bad start but as I said before being unbeaten doesn’t mean I automatically take a round 1 lead even if @Rob and @Woody have lost the odd game.

    It’s now or never!
    We take on Wolves in a do or die match, lose this and any chance of taking our title challenge to the final game of the season will be gone.
    If we had any nerves they were settled early on as Ayew put away a penalty to make it 1-0 and then just after the hour mark Hernandez made the game safe in a comfortable win for us.
    
    This result at least gives us a chance but how much of a chance depends on how Spurs and Man Utd did.
    Spurs dropped points at bottom place Reading which is a big bonus for us but Man Utd got a good away win just like us, 2-0 at Watford

      
    That means we are 3rd and a point behind both teams but we have a worse GD. On the final day we play Brighton, Spurs play Watford who are 19th and Man Utd are at home to Liverpool.
    
    
    Spurs dropped points at Reading so they could repeat the trick and Liverpool is always going to be a tough game even at Old Trafford. Ultimately all we can do is beat Brighton and hope that it goes our way.
    We don’t start the game the best as Locadia gives Brighton the lead but just before half time Onyekuru makes it 1-1 which is the score at the break. It isn’t enough for us to take the title as it stands but the results from elsewhere give us hope.
    
    
    If the other games stay as they are and we score we will be champions!
    Early in the 2nd half the ball breaks to Onyekuru who smashes it in to make it 2-1!!!
    As it stands we are 30 minutes away from being Champions.
    

    In the 88th minute Roofe makes it 3-1 to secure the win we needed so it all hinges on what is happening at Old Trafford and Vicarage Road.

    Man Utd have brought it back to 2-2 but that won’t be enough for them to take the title and our win will drop them down to 3rd.
    Moments before Roofe secured us the points Tottenham’s January signing Emre Can had scored to spark wild celebrations amongst the Tottenham fans.

    That goal means that Spurs take the title in the final 3 minutes of the season and break Fulham hearts.
    
     
    Despite the ultimate disappointment it was a productive season for Fulham as Jordan Ayew won Players’ Player of the Year as well as finishing Premier League top scorer. Not bad for a Swansea reject that cost £2.3m.
    
    Team Stats
     
    On the 16th of May 2020 Fulham took the field in only there 2nd ever FA Cup final in their history with the opposition Liverpool. Things looked bad for the London side when Mo Salah scored after 2 minutes but goals from Onyekuru and then Johansen turned the game on its head and gave Fulham their first major honour.
    
    Despite being 3 minutes away from the title and losing a League Cup final this finally gave the Fulham fans something to celebrate and with Champions League football next season the Fulham fans walked back down Wembley way positive about the future of the club.
     The following day Fuddled Fox resigned his position as Fulham manager.........

    Foxy got a reaction from Woody in The Draft: A 3 season h2h2h battle!   
    Foxy Season 1
    It falls to me to post my results first and that means I go in completely blind as I have no idea if my results were good, bad or amazing. You have seen all the squads and we all have some absolute worldies that have been built around our individual tactics so the margain for error is going to be very small I think.
    Injuries
    With 23 man squads we can be susceptible to an injury crisis and although I never got to that point during the season I did have a few players have some time on the sidelines for a decent amount of time. 
    It was Kylian Mbappe Who I was hoping to be my main goal threat that had the most time out with 2 injuries that totalled 6 weeks. I also had Martial, Dybala and Alli miss significant spells during the season.
    There is plenty of strength to back up the odd injury in the squad so no excuses.
    Cup Competitions
    Our first chance of silverware came against Arsenal in the League Cup final and we put in an excellent performance to win the trophy.
     
    Next up was the FA Cup and this time we had Man City to contend with in the final and it was another comprehensive win for us under the Wembley arch.

    We made it a hat trick of cup wins in the Champions League final as we took on Real Madrid. This game was statistically closer but our superior fire power won the day for us.

     
    Premier League
    The way our scoring system works every game matters but of course the league is still the bread and butter of this save as it has the most points to play for. With that in mind I was delighted to get an unbeaten season but that doesn’t tell the full story. I had 3 draws which means if any of the other lads have 1 more win than me they will score as many points even if they lose a couple of games.

    Team Stats
    As I hoped Mbappe was top scorer but it’s a shame he missed so many games and he could have got a lot more than the 37 goals he did get. Dybala was involved in the most goals with 33 for himself and 26 assists.
    Points 
    So how does this all add up for my season 1 score?
    Remember it is 3 points for a win and 1 for a draw in all competitions with goal difference being used as a decider.
    I went the whole season unbeaten but I did have 5 draws which could be a major factor.

    59 x 3 = 177 + 5 = 182 points
    Goal Difference = 156 points
    Not a bad start but as I said before being unbeaten doesn’t mean I automatically take a round 1 lead even if @Rob and @Woody have lost the odd game.

    Couldn’t have put it better myself.
    This discusion got boring a week ago and is now turning into an excuse for both sides of the argument to keep winding each other up. If you all wish to continue “discussing” the difficulty of the game then please do so over PM.
    There is clearly nothing new that can be added to this discussion so it stops now.
