    Despite having a squad consisting of
    Handanovic, Skriniar, Gags/Brozo, James Rodriguez, Modric, Lamela and Icardi my form has continued into the new season and Chievo, Palermo and Crotone are in the top 4 after 9 games and I'm 15th.

    Fuck this game, I won the league 2 years ago with fucking Joel Campbell and Rodrigo De Paul.

    FM has a weird mechanic that usually leads you to becoming shit every new season unless you make tweaks.

    I finished 3rd in my first season at Inter. The following summer I signed Joshua Kimmich, Yannick Carrasco, Luuk de Jong, Marqiunhos, Jesse Lingard and Oliver Torres. I kept my system the same, but I tried adding beef to my side in hopes of repeating my success but with more depth. By December I was in 17th place, having won only 3 games. That winter, I sold all the old guard, change from a 4-3-3 to a 4-2-3-1, stopped playing defensively and was more attacking minded. I also increased my tempo and put Ederson in GK. I ended up winning every single game whether it be the Coppa Italia, Serie A or Europa League until the end of the year.

    I find every season easier so I fuck up with my team each time, because I get bored of winning everything all the time. I sold Icardi to Real Madrid because he was scoring 50+ a season for example. I cannot not win. Even when I want to. I may lose in the Champions League but even then it's sort of on purpose. I don't want to have 6 triplete in a row, it's unrealistic.
    I find it odd that people complain. I doubt I'm that good and automatic on it. Though I've been playing these games for around 20 years - which shouldn't mean that much as they change the engine very often. The first season with Inter has been the toughest for the past 5-6 versions. After that, you do a mini overhaul in the summer and then it's hard not win all the time.

    Soo, i'm so close to winning CL in my 5th year. I had easy job getting here, played Standard Liege and Bayer, and in the group I had Salsburg, Marseille and Atletico. Playing ManU in the semis.

    I'm also in the cup semis, playing Pescara, probably gonna get to the final. And Im first in Serie A, 11 points up from Juve with 6 games to go.

    I'm playing 4-3-3.

    Oblak
    Cancelo - Vallejo - De Vrij - Alex Telles
    Arthur - Torreira - G5
    Malcom - Icardi - Perisic

    Ball (regenerated GK)
    Archaf - Bastoni - Skriniar - Dalbert
    Aouar - Kdog - Brozo
    Rafinha - Lautaro - Kean

    I got 2 more generated wonderkids (4 total in my team along with Hawl and Kean), who play a lot. Im thinking of getting Pinamonti back from loan instead of Lautaro. I feel he will do better job, and is homegrown, while Lautaro is worth 40mils, i can get good money for him. Monaco wants him, I already refused 40 mils.

    I play with one striker, and Icardi is my first, with lautaro second. He was my third striker for the first year, but i realize he wont play much so I loaned him out. He scores 15+ for 3 years now

    I won CL Beaten Utd in the semis (1 - 1, 4 - 1), and then 2-0 vs Chelski. I had 4 shots on goal, scored two, they had 8, scored zero

    And Malcom is such a cunt, even in the game He was promiced that young players will develop. I have 4 wonderkids in the team, developing like crazy, and he felt my promise wast kept and wants to leave for Barca. What a cunt, even the whole team is against him.

    So im gonna sell him, and get Zivkovic as replacement, who is slightly better. Handa is getting retired, I plan to sell Brozo and Perisic if I get good offers. I don't need any midfielder, and i already have loaned Leandrinho out for perisic, another wonderkid.

    So next season changes should be:
    Malcom - Zivkovic
    Perisic - Leandrinho
    Lautaro - Pinamonti
    Brozo - some u18 guy i guess.

    Nope, you don't set it. Depends on which club you take over. If you take over the likes of City it's easy, inter is medium, and try getting serie c team lol. THat's hard.

    So.. FM19. I'm guessing everyone sells Dalbert, Joao Mario and Valero, maybe Vecino and Candreva if a good offer comes. Right?

    Already pre ordered it, cannot say no to a game I run for 10k hours a year. It's already open at home and won't be back from the office until 8 hours later, so you get why it can be inflated

    I really wanna go back to Inter.

    They had Max Allegri takeover after me, and he's basically continuing his Juventus war path but with Inter. He's won 3 doubles since I left, in 3 seasons.

    I have the beta.

    Sold Dalbert for peanuts. To Genoa
    Joao Mario can't even get a loan offer.

    Didn't try to sell Vecino or Candreva. Everyone is just too expensive. For Barella they asked for 120m Chiesa another 100m.

    I managed to secure successful bids for Rafinha, who moved to Monaco as they offered 3m more than me. And also Lozano, but the board wouldn't let me offer him slightly less than what Rafinha would get and we couldn't reach a deal for like 800k salary difference which was weird as fuck. Could only give him 4m net while my offer for Rafinha was 5m something.
    Adjusting the budget did nothing. There was probably a message there that I ignored. In the past it said that the player was not scouted enough or the board wasnt persuaded by the move. Not sure if there was something this time.

    But everyone is so fucking expensive and you cannot really sign anyone. Tried to pick Real Madrid just to mess around with transfers but a) half the team was butthurt I sold Vazquez of all people to PSG. Couldn't sell Kroos for 0 either. Benzema I managed to sell. But couldnt get SMS or Hazard. I did manage to buy Icardi who has a bugged release clause at 110m. Every save he moves to Man Utd in January.

    Still have not played for over 2 months with any save. Needs a lot of fixing.

    Also it's laughable how strong EPL teams are again. Tested the game for 5 seasons twice, almost 10 CL winners from EPL and 6-7 Europa League winners. Half the finals between EPL teams also.

    Arsenal and Tottenham won CLs. Man City and Liverpool won at least 3 each.

    I love the new tactics. It finally feels like it's proper football tactics and not just a video game.
    Also interested in the new training mechanics, as I never really bother with it. You finally get weekly feedback about the sessions and you get ratings for the players, so you can praise or diss players for their training output.

    But I just can't enjoy the game as there are db issues and several bugs that cannot make me hooked at the moment. I need to use the Editor

    Thanks Brehme!

    The first thing i'm going to do when i get home is to play Red Dead a few hours and maybe after that start a game in FM with Inter so i'm really excited about both. Especially FM because I don't have to cheat to get the team for this season. Skriniar + de Vrij
