How to buy players in Football Manager
Every Football Manager player out there will come at a point where he needs to buy new players for his team. Now as most of you know there are a lot if ways to scout and buy players. But as usual, Guido from strikerless.com has created his own specific process on how to surgically sign new players for you team. After i’ve read this piece i was sure that the community needed to be aware of this information and so here it is!
When you’re signing new players there are multiple approaches to the matter. I admit that I am generally a firm proponent of the hoarding approach. When you bring in 30 new players every season one of them is bound to succeed or develop into a player who can prove useful to the cause of subjugating the domestic league or Europe.
On the other side of the spectrum, there’s the art of surgically signing new assets through methodical analysis and thorough scouting. While it’s not my general modus operandi, it is an art I have mastered along those many years of playing FM. Last week, I showed you a case study of such a surgical signing.
Again, not quite standard operating procedure. Normally, a case study is preceded by a post detailing the thought process behind the case study. As I was writing this case study, I noticed that a lot of steps had become a routine for me and as such I did not question what I was doing and why. This article is an effort to further explain the steps I have taken.
