Finished the first season. Came 2nd in the East and 4th overall. I'll put screenshots up in a while as I'm writing this up on another website. Lost out to Houston in the play-offs 3-2.

I'm just past February with Inter in my first season. In 5th place and in dire financial problems (just like real life Inter!)

I had to sell Wesley Sneijder to PSG for $30 million + 25% future sale. Luckily I have signed several 4* prospects on free transfers to load up my squad.

Was discussing this in the MLS thread and you could have 4 Canadian teams qualify for the NACL. That would be fantastic for development but I think 3 is more realistic.

I didn't change a lot of things in the 1st year.

I signed Malouda as DP. I bought him for very cheap (450k) but I had to give him 6.5 millions for one year. I let him go though for the 2nd year. He wasn't bad, he was often my best player but inconsistent and I thought I was paying too much for what I'm getting. He helped selling a lot of merchandises though.

With Malouda signed I had very little cash to spend. So I signed Fernando Lorefice an argentine midfielder as a free agent (he was a 3.5*) for around 200k I don't remember how much exactly. It was a decent signing, he played good in the midfield.

I also traded for Corey Ashe and picked up Gabriel Farfan from waivers (I was shocked he was on waiver). Ashe was voted the best player of the year for me, he was really great even though he's rated at 2.5* only.

I got rid of Mapp and Arnaud.

I finished 4th in the east and got eliminated in the East Semi-Finals.

In the 2nd year, I changed the face of the club almost completely.

I didn't renew Di Vaio, Rivas (I wanted to but he signed for Deportivo Cali), Malouda, Perkins, Bush and Lorefice.

I brought in:

Ustari : ex-Argentine international goalie as a free agent for 350k. He's a 4*.

Facundo Coria : as a DP from Genoa (bought for 2M$, salary 600k a year only, he's AMAZING, best player of the club by far, he's worth 10x Malouda for me on the field). He's a 4* and plays behind the striker. Already got 12 goals in 22 games.

Alfonso Alves: a 32 yrs old Brazilian 4* striker. Signed as a free agent for 350k. Very decent player.

Joshua John: Very decent winger bought from Twente. He's also young 25 years old and a 3.5*. He's playing very well. Bought him for under value (550k and valued for 1.5M and pay him 350k only).

Jonathan Dos Santos: as a DP, bought from Barcelona for around 2M$. Honestly I was shocked I could get this deal through. I got him midway during summer transfer. He's a 5*, I pay him 2.4M a year for like 3 or 4 years. I was intensively looking to sign a midfielder as a DP, but couldn't convince any high profile player, absolutely no one wanted to sign. But then I tried to get my assistance suggestions, and dos Santos was one of the suggested players. Barcelona accepted the first offer I threw at them lol. Very glad I got him

Luis Ernesto Olascoaga: a young Mexican striker. He's 22 yrs old, 2* with a 4* potential. I bought him for very cheap, wanted to take a shot at him and develop him to become a star player for me. He's a backup for Alves right now.

Samuel Piette: 19 yrs old local Canadian player. He's a project, he's a 1* right now but has a 4* potential. Will be patient with him

Al-Shaibani: The only reason I brought him as a backup for Ustari was because he was way cheaper than Bush. For some reason Bush wanted double his salary, and I didn't have much left on the salary cap.

I also signed players players I drafted, I loaned out most of them as there is no place for them right now on the team. I also signed a couple of teenagers from south america.

I'm 1st right now with 8 pts ahead of NYRB and on an 8 games winning streak including 7 consecutive games without conceding a single goal. Won't accept any less than winning the cup.

I don't know about you but Felipe is a disappointment for me. He's not progressing and his value dropped. He's a bench player for me right now, I had to bench him because he's not performing. He's a 2* player right now, he's got a 4* potential but he's not progressing fast enough.

Yep.

I do a lot of scouting and personal players search to make sure I get the best players available for the money.

That's my starting lineup:

-----------------Alves---------------
--------Ashe - Coria - John---------
--------Bernier - Dos Santos-------
Brovsky - Ferrari - Nesta - Camara
-----------------Ustari---------------

On the bench:
Valentin (I alternate between him and Camara)
Wenger (I play him as a striker or as a midfielder, he's more efficient in the midfield)
Warner (I alternate Wenger, Warner and Bernier)
Felipe (I alternate between him and Ashe but plays him CAM and move Coria to the left)
Farfan
Olascoaga
Burch (Forgot to mention in my previous post that I got him through waivers, I alternate between him and Brovsky)
Piette
Al-Shaibani

And some other scraps.

Some players improved a lot btw, Brovsky and Valentin are both 3.5* player snow. Wenger as well. Warner is a 3*.

But others also regressed, Bernier is a 2.5* or a 3*, but he's still very efficient, for some reason he's having better performances than my 2 other options in the midfield even though he's rated lower. I guess experience plays a role lol. Nesta and Ferrari also both slowed down but that's to be expected given their age.

Thanks to vegasking for the link, $10 off was enough to get me to bite despite the uncertainty of the minor changes this year.

I'll have to install it tomorrow, work the editor and get started. Stopped 12 a month ago just waiting for this version. I plan on starting with Barça and then after the first season maybe giving Spurs, Dortmund, Athletic and/or Roma a shot at the same time.

I know a lot of ppl didn't like it but I personnally like the new training system.

The game machine is okay.

Other than that, the changes are insignificant as to how much you'll like the experience. I bought it only to be able to play with the Impact.

I think FM should only do roster updates for next year then come with a revamped one the year after. The game gets already released very late in the year. But this game is already great.

for all the beginners, you can get graphics (logos, facepacks etc) and real name fixes from http://sortitoutsi.net/ - makes the game much more fun!
