    Same goes for Vidal, I wanted to buy him from Barcelona, they asked 40M! and his salary is more than 1M a month, Barca can go fuck themselves even in a computer game.

    That's why I put a lot of money in my youth Academy and scouting, you can get a lot of gems when you have a good scouting system because if you have to buy good players you need crazy amounts of money to get them.


    I would suggest to get Tagliafico from Ajax, maybe Unuvar at the start of the game for free! I have some more young players in my game with Inter so when I get back from the office tonight I will give you some players to scout.
    Almada refused to negotiate with me, said he had no interest leaving at the moment. Signed tagliafico, apparently made a promise to sign a striker but I had no budget left. Didn't sign a striker, now he has demanded to leave, he's been here like two weeks!! Haha, crazy.

    I've now played 11 games in the league, won 3 and drawn 7.what the fuck! I keep conceding. Handanovic got injured after my first game for 4 months. But I just can't win.

    Haha yes you should be carefull when promising things to players, I allmost never do a promise unless it's about loaning the player out. In FM20 players are like little spoiled kids and will be whining quickly.

    You should check the stats, whether you create chances, have a lot of crosses etc usually you can find the problem there.

    I would recommend to lose players like Candreva, Asamoah, Godin etc as soon as possible. Bastoni will become really good and you could use D'Ambrosio or Pirola as 4th CB(unless you want to keep Ranocchia). That will lower the salaries because that's the biggest problem at Inter. I even loaned Santon so I could sell Asamoah. Also Santon is a home-grown player which you need for the CL-list. Keep checking in on Almada and try to secure him for the winter. Otherwise you could try and buy Joao Neto from Famalicao.

    Gasparini (Udinese), De La Vega (Lanus), Fausto Vera (Argentinos) Armini (Lazio), David Bettela ( Atalanta, buy back clause of 11M, but you can get him cheaper), Brian Brobbey, Unuvar and Gravenberch(Ajax) are players I always try to sign as soon as possible so they are still cheap.

    Esposito will become one of the best attackers in the game when trained right so you can spend you money on other positions. I'm now in my second season and he is already 3 stars and can become 5 stars.

    I just got sacked so I will probably start again. Lol

    I tried to sell asamoah and Candreva and there no were no takers. Eventually got asamoah sold after the market but for only 10m.
    Tagliafico, handanovic and eriksen all got injured for like 5 months a few weeks in.
    I'll start again and try to sign those guys you recommend. Is it worth sacrificing a player like brozovic to make more signings?
    Any tips on tactics? I was trying gegenpress 4-1-2-1-2, then tried fluid counter attack 3-5-2 when eriksen got injured and both were failing.

    Yeah I went for 3-4-1-2 or 5-2-1-2 depending on how you look at it.

    Bettela and Vanheusden are amazing. Eriksen sucks so that's an easy cashgrab, Tonali's the beast though! Esposito is by far one of the best wonderkids. Wouldn't sell Bro, he's very good as DLP. Eriksen sucked so much I had to resort to a more defensive 3-5-2 with Bro, Sensi and Barella as midfield.

    More amazing (affordable) wonderkids/players: Arezo (cheap af), Almada, Meunier (fixing the wings), Dest (after 1 season he's affordable for 10m or so), Tagliafico (okay, not really as affordable as others, but certainly worth it, scores a bunch for me), Ajer (if you need backups for the defense plus midfield), Sergio Gomez (one of my favorites, I lured him into a fight with Dortmund, he didn't want to sign a new contract and signed for Inter for like 1m), Lucas Nunez, Kumbulla, Ait-Nouri, Zaracho, Tonali, ...

    Always declare interest and somehow they want to sign and request a transfer.

    Even though I'm stuck in lockdown at home, I've tried not to play the game too much and exhaust myself lol. So far I've played about 10 games in 3 days.

    I started my game with no transfer activity for the first window, so I'm playing the 19/20 season from the beginning but with present-day squads.

    And yes, Eriksen is all kinds of fucking useless. Tried playing him as a mezzala in a 352 and an AM in a 3412 and 4312 but he's been very poor for me. Obviously he's coming off a bad season and these kinds of games always alter their player stats after each season depending on how the player has performed, but he's been weakened way too hard.

    Eriksen's free kick stat is 14/20 despite having scored a couple free kicks in the past season. Meanwhile, fucking Politano is 16/20 for free kicks and corners despite his last season having been at Inter of course how does a game developer watch Politano at Inter and give him 16 for free kicks and 16 for corners?? I would give the cunt 12/20 at best.

    His passing stat is also 14/20.. which is the same as fucking Gagliardini and Vecino, and worse than de Vrij. Come on

    My forwards have been horrendous. I've set them up with Lukaku as a targetman (in the game it's his best role according to his stats), and Lautaro as a pressing forward. But they're both generally useless and very uninvolved. Lukaku in particular has been fucking dismal. He's got like 1 goal in 9 games and the amount of 1v1 chances he misses is fucking ludicrous. inb4 brehme cracks a predictable joke about "that's how he normally is" and "the game must be very realistic then".

    Sensi, Brozovic and Barella on the other hand, have been really good for me, as have my defenders. I lost Godin to injury very early on so he hasn't played, but Bastoni, Skriniar, de Vrij all have scored and assisted like 2 goals each.

    I thought I'd get raped, having not played the game much since like 2012, but I'm doing unbelievably well so far. 10 league games, 8 W, 1D, 1L. 5 goals conceded, 2nd place behind Lazio (who have like 31 goals in 10 games lmao). My 1 loss is to fucking Sassuolo

    And does anyone have any experience with patching the game? I'd like to get a patch for the unlicensed teams/leagues.

    I noticed they gave Brozovic a natural fitness score of 20/20 and 19/20 for stamina. That's actually realistic for a change and I'm so glad they recognized that aspect of his game.

    I bring it up because I remember way back in the day, Zanetti was a 37 year old playing every minute of every game and in FIFA/PES he'd have like a stamina stat of 82/100 or some bullshit.

    These days clubs do "reveal" videos where each player gets a copy of the latest FIFA video game and a framed plaque of their player card and overall rating etc. I've always hated the overall rating system and I feel it is the reason why they are sometimes unwilling to give top stats (90+) to "lesser-known" players - because it impacts the overall rating / player card, and they want to reserve the best ones for the big name players. They've made such a fucking big deal about these fucking FIFA player cards these days.

    Anyway, quarantine Day 5 rant over. Glad at least one of our players is getting the recognition he deserves in at least one game.

    If you start the game try to get Armini and Unuvar right from the start, they still on youth contracts so you can easily sign them. Also Amad Traore is available due to his youth contract. You should keep Brozovic, I'd rather sell Vecino and Borja. Brozovic is amazing in the game and can score alot of goals as a midfielder.

    I always go for the 4-2-3-1 in every game I play, ''Positive'' gameplay with attacking fullbacks, wingers who cut inside and a midfield with physique and power. Mostly just keeping possession although against the smaller teams at home I tend to change it to gegenpress. In the away matches against the bigger teams I start with a ''Balanced'' gameplay and change it if needed. I also like to use youth players alot rather then spend money on 4th choices. So Agoume, Pirola and Esposito are in my first team, they playing there games in the U20 but or on the bench at the first team. Sometimes it's a risk when you lose players for months but the benefits of having a lot of young players is that the wages are somewhat low and I can spend my money wisely on players for the starting eleven.

    Always sign tonali


    tonali-barella-sensi can be an incredible midfield if you develop them right. Esposito broke Meazza's scoring record for me by the time he was aged 30 in one game, and I was turning down like 160m+ offers from Barca for him.

    Bastoni is hit or miss - he's developed into one of the top CBs in a couple of my games, and misses the mark in others.

    Vignato is worth signing as well possibly.

    In the first season I offload dead weight and sign rotation players mainly, try to play a 3-2-3-2 (e.g. two WBs, two strikers, 3 CMs) before Eriksen, and that provided a.LOT of goals from Martinez-Lukaku, like 25+ each for the season easy.

    It's quite hard to move to my preferred formation of 4-2-3-1 though as you need to sign two FBs and two wingers which is quite substantial investment. Also having Bastoni and developing him gets challenging, as does only playing 2 of Barella Tonali Sensi Brozovic

    I did manage to get a straight swap between Lukaku and Gabi Jesus a few years in in one game which was great, I had loads of good forwards (cant remember off hand exactly) but maybe Martinez Esposito-developed and Lukaku?

    You can try and sign or loan Keita Balde, usually Monaco wants between 10-15M for him only problem is that he asking a shit ton of salary, this game it was 600k a month so I prefer to loan him with an option to buy. I try to negotiate a big fee ( something like 25M), I know I'm not going to spend that kind of money on Balde but than you have a regular starter on both wings.

    Jeremy Boga is also a player who might do the trick as a back-up.

    Maybe most of you already know but I like to promise big money for some clause which will never be reach or maybe after 2 seasons. So like 5M after 50 matches or 20 goals for a defender. Just try and play with it.

    Yesterday I bought Dybala from Liverpool, in the same summer Juventus bought Icardi from PSG. It's 2022 and Dybala played for Liverpool but I managed to buy him for 100M while Icardi went for 75M to Juventus.

    Does anyone ever had any luck with building a new stadium with Inter? I've noticed that I could expand my stadium to 96.000 seats and have an average attendance of 93.000. Now I know I have to sell out my stadium every game and reach the maximum expansion but I was wondering if anyone ever had succeeded to build a new stadium.

    Yep. It normally takes me a few decades but I do it every time I play as Inter. The key is to sell out regularly on your current stadium and have a few hundred mil in the bank. I think in my most recent game I managed it relatively quickly with inter maybe 15 years but would need to chrck

    In the last two season since a I switched to a single-striker formation I played him as a first choice striker, because I sold Lautaro (mistake) and Lukaku. Before I played with two strikers and Seba was the rotation option.

    Hi, what formation and playing style do you use? Also what is the role for the striker? I tried 4 3 3 dm wide vertical tiki taka but goal from striker is really lacking. Whether it's lukaku (which later i sold), lautaro, or esposito. When i use 5 2 1 2 in first season they both (lukaku and lautaro) both scoring many goals, lukaku even became top scorer.

    For the people who are a bit nostalgic due to quarantine: there is a ''update'' in the workshop which makes all the squad from the 2006-2007 season available. So you can play again with Cordoba, Materazzi, Samuel, Cambiasso, Zanetti, Figo, Stankovic, Adriano, Crespo, Recoba etc etc. Just started yesterday and it's really fun to play with all the old players.

    And the best thing is: Juventus is where they belong: Serie B.

    When I feel nostalgic I just go play the older versions.

    I was playing FM12 before deciding to buy FM20.
    I occasionally go back to late 90s and early 2000s Championship Manager versions. Been a while actually.
