    Team: Manchester United
    Year: 2017-18
    Starting XI:
    Lukaku
    Martial - Dybala - Rashford
    Pogba - Matic
    Blind - Bailly - Jones - Bellerin
    De Gea

    Substitutes: The entire roster including Dele Alli, Herrera, Mkhitaryn, Smalling,etc.
    Notable sells: Mata, Ibrahimovic, Young, Valencia.

    Also would like to gain a new LB eventually.

    I feel that my team is incredibly strong in the middle, lacking in depth in the front, decent but amazing potential on the wings, Great and amazing depth on D, amazing in G.

    Anyone have backup wingbacks in mind? I play a 3-5-2 with Arsenal and I'm happy with Bellerin and Kolasinac but looking for similar but slightly worse players to serve as deputies longer term.

    have you thought about using bringing through some youth players you could build up for 2nd fullbacks?

    Team: Liverpool - second season
    Position: FWD, a player who is flexible and can play all across the front line and attacking positions.
    Why: need another option
    Transfer price: upto £30 million
    Wage: upto 150k
    Rating: ideally at least 82 rated, strong dribbling stats. Although would consider a younger option.
    Players like: same style as Liverpoola current forwards, similar to players like dybala, reus, griezmann, but obviously not as good/expensive.
    At the moment have only really found Thorgan hazard who fits the bill. Any other suggestions?
  • Team: QPR

    Top of the league and expected to be in the Premier League next year.
    I'm after 2/3 signings to try and keep me there.
    Any position.
    Preferably young.

    No idea of what the budget is like for newly promoted sides, but Moses Simon was always a go to for me last year and looks just as good again this year. Absolutely electric.

    I'm using Liverpool at the moment and I couldn't help thinking that Brannagan would be perfect for a championship team. Great all round stats, I just didn't have the time to develop him.

    And a bit of a wildcard, but could be interesting to try bring jack Harrison back to English football. Might require a bit of training to get him to prem standard though.

    Team: Wigan Athletic
    Year: 2021-22
    Starting XI:
    B.Dragowski
    K.Amian Adou, N.Sule, D.Upamecano, R.Sessegnon
    T.Ndombele, K.Linetty
    B.Richardson (youth gen)
    B.Embolo, L.Martínez, G.Deulefeu
    Substitutes: G.Poussin (GK), M.Sarr, Han Kwang Song, G.Bale, Oscar, O.Busquets, A.Shaw (youth gen)

    Honours:
    2017/18: EFL League One
    2018/19: EFL Championship, Carabao Cup
    2019/20: FA Cup, Europa Cup
    2020/21: Copa Europe, Premier League, Carabao Cup, Champions Cup
    2021/22 (so far): Community Shield, Copa Europe...

    Been one of my most enjoyable career modes, I'm going for all trophies this season! Must admit to exploiting the pre-contract agreements on top players with contracts expiring (Bale, Oscar, Martínez, Deulefeu, Ndombele, Linetty). The rest I've bought along the way, using funds from other pre-contract players bought for free then sold, sometimes for big release clauses (Dembele from Celtic for free, sold to Spurs for £49m release clause for example). Brandon Richardson was a 'Scout future world star' bought from catalogue. Had him since first season, he's now got 99 finishing, 99 long shots, 99 dribbling etc. Always top scorer in league and from CM too. Scored some of my best ever goals with him.

    Good work this year EA, but please let us choose real managers or create our own appearances next time!!

    8th season with Leeds United quite a difference to the squad have 3 original players left although one of those I just resigned. Have had quite a lot of youth development revamped squad for current season as had a really poor one bringing in Mbappe, Havertz, Alli, resigning Tyler Roberts who really grew after I sold him to stoke a few seasons ago.

    I rotate a lot with players and formation. Occasionally 4-4-2 often play 3-4-3, 3-2-3-2 or 4-5-1
