  2. Met Police - Premier League - 2074/75 We have been back to our best, despite the squad having a few weak spots. League Table - we drew far too many games. Community Shield - we needed penalties to win. UEFA Super Cup - we sealed this with two late goals. League Cup - we destroyed everyone. FA Cup - the final was a classic. UEFA Champions League - we weren't at our best, but we won it with penalties. Squad - we've got some great young players but the squad is lacking real depth. Transfers - we made a profit as I lowered the average age of the squad. Finances - back in good state. Key Player Profiles: Thomas Green - the new number nine. Gustavo Alexandre - our MVP. Dennis Bierofka - the youth product is still on form. Career Overview: Next Season: The outside chance of a new stadium is still there.

  4. My laptop has just decided to stop working days before the new FM anybody know any Decent laptop repair shops in Manchester?
  5. Won the league first season comfortably, no transfers except Cheryshev and Domenech out in January because they weren't playing. Our under 19s also won their division undefeated winning every single game! Shows how good the youth is. Tying Gaya and Soler down on long term contracts to build around as our homegrown core is first priority. Probably going to sell Guedes and Gomez if good offers come in for them in the summer and use those funds to rebuild. Paulista or Mangala are liable to go if they recieve a good offer as I will replace them with Guillamon from mestalla. Oliva was unreal in the BBM midfield role for me and scored bangers from outside the box every second game, earning him a Uruguay call up in the summer. Definitely buying him on a permanent deal as a squad player. Gameiro leaving on a free so lots of wages freed up, he did play well for me as a back up for Gomez when needed, scoring a few off the bench. Cutrone was garbage. League table, under 19s table and squad sorted by average rating posted below.
  6. Hey mate, started a new save to test the tweaked version of the tactic. Great result first season with Valencia in the winter transfer update database, I won the league by a big margin and my under 19s went unbeaten winning every single game in their division. I didn't make any transfers besides selling two backup players who didn't play any games.
  7. Only problem with that idea is that eventually it would become repetitive and automatic. Like no matter what if you’re winning you say I’m really happy keep it up and if you’re losing you say something about how you’re not happy. Eventually it becomes just another click through to the second half and doesn’t really add anything once you figure out which option to select.
  8. Guys, I need the tactic that Germany used when they beat Brazil 7-1 in the 2014 world cup. I'll be happy if you can help me
  9. August 2032 I made a really stupid error at the start of the month. I requested upgraded training facilities without really thinking about it. While the upgrade will be great in the long term, I'm going to be in deficit by the end of the season which means I'm going to have to sell at least one of my players this year. This may possibly be a huge error, but time will tell. Just to give you an idea of the challenge we face in this league, this is our annual wage spend. The largest is £8 million a year. Only two other clubs have a spend below £2 million. Despite this, we've started really well. The win over Accrington was my personal favourite as we lost Brooking to injury and Robbins as well, so to still pull out a 4-1 win is excellent. Finishing in the play-offs wouldn't be too bad would it?! One player I've been really impressed with is Clarke who has played the majority of games as a DLP. 1 assist in 5 games isn't amazing obviously, but the 15 key passes is much higher than our other DLPs have managed and he's only 17 years old. I'm going to manage his game time carefully, but I have high hopes for him. The Palace game was obviously not great, but we did get our highest ever attendance and gate receipts. Each little record breaking achievement counts as progress when the club is developing. Transfers We have turned this down as I feel we can get much more for Bondswell, plus he signed a new 4 year deal in the summer. Unless the financial situation becomes dire, he's a player I'd really rather hold on to. We did however, let Gordon go out on loan, as nobody wanted Majernik and both keepers now need some game time. Therefore, Majernik stays as number 2/ cup keeper and Gordon returns to Hartlepool where he did really well last season. Finally, we've managed to bring a player in! I think Folkes is probably too good for us and may leave at the end of the year if he plays well, but he provides us another great option as a DLF and AF if needed. He scores as an AF and as a DLF so he's right up there with our best options. Due to this, I felt Burgess was unlikely to get any game time. His contract is up at the end of the year, so unless he improves significantly on loan I imagine it'll be the end of the road for Burgess.
  10. This type of thing would add a lot. I think it will come as AI improves. Increased AI awareness and the AI of individual players/staff having individual needs and issues that are tailored to the situation they are in. I can only imagine the level of AI depth this would require so I can see why it maybe isn't as detailed right now but I too would love to see this kind of thing more in the future!
  11. But on the flip side for Youtubers and Streamers, viewers often want to see "progression" in manageable chunks (30 min video or 2/3 hour stream) Playing matches on a slower speed would slow down overall progression which could disengage a viewership on a longer term basis
  12. Today
  13. Theoretically Gangwon FC are not as strong as Ulsan - they're not as wealthy, they don't have quite as many foreign signings. They're also lower in their K-League. That won't mean this is easy, but it should mean we can compete for another win. After that? Who knows! Here's our predicament though. Last season the ACL second round was played in May - which works well for us as we'll be playing out our local season through May and Finals in June. But then the Quarter Finals are in September - which is actually in a new season for us. We'll theoretically have a different team! For example, there's no way Castro is going to postpone his retirement (and to be fair, he's finally dropping off a little bit in physical skill), and we have to work out which of our young attackers stay or go - remember we sent Dukuly and Popovic on loan... but this season I'd argue that guys like Wood and LLL haven't contributed much, maybe it's time to loan those guys out and try the other youngsters. The ACL Grand Final would also be in November - FM hasn't reverted back to a 'normal' A-League calendar (starting in October) so it'll likely roll out another December League start. Meaning when we come to face the ACL Quarters, Semi's and Final, we won't have played any competitive fixtures for months!
  14. Give mine a try. Win the four main competitions listed here in one season along with the European Champions Cup - https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2621247519 and my World Cup Winners Cup - https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2606641056
  15. Ah I’ve been missing the Bulls stories. Great to see them back in action.
  16. Ideal 3 man central midfield combo when using an attacking 5-3-2 with wing backs and a target man?
  17. They have a lot of highly rated kids that would laugh their way through this League, but they either won’t drop down this far, or City won’t let them play this low. Another promotion may solve that. But I am pretty happy so far with the ones I have, they look solid for this level. if nothing else, they effectively become another sponsor. I think all my sponsorships combined at the moment pull in about 180K a year, and City are paying me 90K. Not an insignificant amount in comparison.
  18. The Scout Centre there is used to show you players that the scouts are recommending. This player in particular is fully scouted. He will continue to come up on this Scout Centre until you action it. So basically if you click the cross, the player will no longer come up in the scout centre and the scouts will stop recommending him. Nothing will directly happen by clicking either of those options, all that will happen is that he will be removed from the scout centre and wont be there each week any more, but the cross will instruct the scouts that you don't want this player. His scout reports will still be accessible in the Scouting screen or by clicking the player.
  19. No problems- just a low key warning to make sure that the thread didn't deteriorate
  20. I think we got a glimpse of that type of reaction when they announced dynamic youth ratings…Something people actually wanted. If the rest of the game doesn’t work like football then everything else is fluff. Take player pathway for example. Update from squad status but it really didn’t add anything to the game…You still can have 11 star players on your team, yes they will complain eventually but definitely not soon enough. It even then it’s pretty easy to resolve especially if you start out with a higher rep. You can also still lure a new player to a squad with yet another star status. He should be aware of the potential playing time with a team…
  21. This is actually quite pleasing to read as it shows that getting someone else to negotiate isn't a "cheat code" In terms of the reason why, I have no clear findings or evidence, but I'd like to think it could come down to the personality combinations of said GM, Agent and Player and how they click or don't click. A lot would come down to the AI doing the negotiations, and how good they are at doing them. You also see it in real life, some players and agents back down, some are stubborn and transfer/contract sagas ensue Overall, I don't think there is a one size fts all answer or reasoning to this situations, I think it is just something that can be said to adds to the immersion of saves if nothing else
  22. It's good, but for the same price this is better: https://www.box.co.uk/FX506HE-HN018T-ASUS-TUF-GAMING-F15-Intel-Core-i7-8GB-RA_3617147.html
  23. Only kidding Fraz, that's why we've kept it decent & not been offensive. No arguments or the like, just a little light amusement
  24. Yup spot on. There are counter arguments to everything though, one managers realism is anothers unrealism (is that a word??) Training for example, some could justify that you as a manager doing every aspect of training is realistic (if you are taking on a coach persona) but on the flip side, if you are that "head coach" training tracksuit manage ttype, then maybe for realisms sake you should be leaving all transfer target dealings to your Director of Football and not get involved with that stuff. There are few football managers IRL that would likely get involved with all aspects of training to that level of detail AND all aspects of making and negotiating signings. But again, it all comes down to the level of realism you want and enjoy. Everyone should play the game exactly how they want to and how they feel comfortable playing it
  25. Guys- this is a family forum so lets keep things sensible please
