FM Premier League – Matchweek 19

Welcome back to the FM Premier League! We have reached the half-way point of the season, and unfortunately Fulham still sit bottom. But with improved performances recently, a win today against CJplays’ Wolves would really boost our survival hopes!

Tactics

This week, 2 changes were made from our 1-1 draw with Newcastle. Tim Ream started his first game in the FM Premier League in defence, with Andre Schurrle joining the three-man attack. Ryan Babel and Maxime Le Marchand dropped to the bench.

Fulham vs Wolves

The first half started off pretty great for us. Alexsandar Mitrovic put us in front with a powerful header from Jean Michel Seri’s corner, and we were 1-0 up! We couldn’t hold out until half-time, as Raul Jimenez equalised for Wolves just before the break. Still, not a bad first half by any means!

The second half was much worse, however. We found ourselves 2-1 down just a minute in when Joao Moutinho scored a long range effort. Ivan Cavaleiro made it 3-1 on 58 minutes, so I decided to make changes. Going very attacking, we subbed on Joe Bryan, Timothy Fosu-Mensah and Ryan Babel. The changes seemed to work, as we won an admittedly dubious penalty just minutes later. Mitrovic stepped up to score his and our second of the game. We were now 3-2 down, so we had to go all out to salvage something from the game. Unfortunately, our attacking shape left us weak at the back, and Diogo Jota exploited this to finish the game off.

Match Reaction

This was certainly not the worst performance we’ve seen from Fulham this season. We were threatening going forward, but just weren’t solid enough at the back. Our top goalscorer, Alexsandar Mitrovic, delivered a MOTM performance, as he seems to be single-handedly carrying us through games at times! Our defence let us down today, and ultimately Wolves just outclassed us on the day.

Next Opponent: Huddersfield (BadJokesGaming)

Next up in the FM Premier League, we have Huddersfield, managed by BadJokesGaming. Despite being relegated in real life, BadJokes has Huddersfield 9th in the league, defying expectations. This won’t be an easy game, but hopefully we can start to pick up points, as the gap between us and 17th is widening every week now. I believe we can still stay up, but we will need to start getting results now if we are to do so.

Latest players

Lewis Cook

Lewis Cook is one of the ideal Brexit players to keep watching. He plays for Bournemouth, but is keen on moving to one of the club inside the top 6. He will cost you roughly around 45 to 50 million and that is considered a steal for this type of player in the Premier League. He is a very good playmaker and could easily play for one of the big teams in the Premier League.

Lisandro Martinez

Lisandro Martinez is a real catch in Football Manager 2019. The young Argentinian is a talented centre-back and is available for an expected 7M transfer fee. Ideal player to have if you like longer saves and need a good ball playing defender who is able to develop a lot.

Julian Brandt

Julian Brandt has the potential to become one of the elite players in Football Manager 2019. The German winger shows some lethal skills and will have no trouble with playing for the biggest clubs in the world. He has a 70m price tag, which seems a fair price in modern football.

Franck Kessie

If you are looking for a tireless midfielder Franck Kessie could be the ideal player for you. The Ivorian international has all the attributes for a very good ball-winning midfielder. However, it is not possible to sign Kessie in the first two seasons as he is on a loan from Atalanta and will sign on a permanent deal for Milan in the summer of 2019.

Javairo Dilrosun

Former Manchester City left winger Javairo Dilrosun is considered as one of the bigger talents from Holland. He has the potential to become a regular international and is a very handy player if you love a left-footed left winger that will cross in the ball onto your striker. For 22.5 he could be yours, so keep an eye out for him!

Josip Brekalo

Josip Brekalo is a talented player who could develop into an awesome inside forward. The Croatian international is already a first team regular at Wolfsburg and it is expected that he will leave the club on a short term. Keep him on your shortlist as the expected 60m fee could drop after a couple of seasons.
