  1. Past hour
  2. Should be an option before every match
  3. I'm not even sure that is possible. We all know that sometimes when they try to fix one area of the ME, another one goes wrong. I don't really understand why that happens but it does and has done for many years. Not an easy fix, more a delicate balance. Yes, there are issues with this year's ME, a lot of them in fact, but if you think it was simple for them to "make attackers bad" in a way to counteract some poor defending then I can only suggest you stop watching all those conspiracy theory programmes.
  4. I plan on coming back to this once they fix the mac issues and I can play again! Been a solid tactic no matter who I've used it with. Taken over a team in Portugals second division and I just know this 4141 will give me a solid base to build a team around.
  5. Meanwhile, fresh off of his sacking at Barcelona for dragging them into a mid-season relegation scare, the Midget Beast is taking Saint-Etienne into the relegation playoffs against Angers... And losing the first leg at home, 3-1.
  6. This is delicious. City had finished in the bottom half 3 out of the last 4 years, 16th in 2048/49. So, this was coming...
  7. No kidding... Posting screenshots is awful right now. After the World Cup, I may take a brief hiatus while the keyboard gets fixed. I've got some ideas about where I want to go next, at least...
  8. Doughnuts?! I told you I don't like ethnic food. Celta Vigo / Belgium -- 2049/50 Season Review It seems like yesterday when we rocked up in Galicia, full of coffee, jelly beans and RedBull. But our task here is complete. Real Madrid have been taken down a peg, the Champions League is ours, and the donations have been laid for sustained, long-term success. Our work here is done. Well, almost done. Zlatan is giving the basement a heavy wipe-down to remove any lingering evidence of Taylor Twellman's...ehhh...residence. He'd better finish quickly, because we're off to Belgium for our final preparations. Argentina 2050 is imminent. Goals for 2050/51: Wait for the "right" club job to open up. Challenge for the World Cup title. (Again, I apologize for the lack of quality screenshots. A bare handful of phone pics will have to suffice until my keyboard is working again.) Champions League Review This is documented above. Celta complete their quest, while Mukiele solidifies his reputation as a specialist in Champions League failure. 0 for 5, Nordi. 0 for 5. Challenge Overview
  9. Today
  10. In all seriousness, well done man. Always a joy to behold you swashbuckling your way to the trophies, though I do wish Gary and Jamie had something to say about it. Excited to see where you end up next!
  11. I love this thread You should be ashamed of yourself.
  12. Champions League Final, May 2050; Ataturk Stadium On paper, this was going to be a big ask. Monaco have more experience, more titles to their name, more... Whatever. None of it matters. We play in our counter-attacking setup, looking to contain their attack and hit them in transition... And Mukiele's lads go down hard. 5 finals, 5 losses for Mukiele. 3 of them at my hands. **** it, Nordy. I'm your hat daddy now. Given the issues with my laptop, I've given Jamie and Gary the evening off and am stuck with subpar screenshots. Never fear, Gar-Bear, Jamie-lad and excessive screenshots will return in due course.
  13. Every screen is very low.. cannot play like that. Please help. DxDiag.txt
  14. Okay then nevermind, thanks again
  15. I signed Declan Rice and have loved having him, though I would suppose his pace is probably too close to Matic for you.
  16. "Don Garber says final decision on teams 28 and 29 will be decided around time of this summer's All-Star Game. Will likely enter league around 2021/2022. #MLS — Jeff Carlisle (@JeffreyCarlisle) April 18, 2019" https://www.starsandstripesfc.com/2019/4/19/17960646/the-current-state-mls-expansion-30-teams
  17. I've really enjoyed my Dortmund save - you're up there, but equal with 2 or 3 other teams, so you still need to try hard, plus you have desirable players that you may need to try to keep hold of, and the Bundesliga has a tendency of having one or two teams surprising you and managing to break into Europe when they'd been fighting against relegation the season before.
  18. You're right; it would be easier with Ajax. I was thinking about picking them because I'm an Ajax fan. If I picked another Dutch club, I'd probably go with a team in the Keuken Kampioen Divisie. That might be even more fun. Thanks for the idea, Stevicus.
  19. That's a good idea, too. Perhaps it would be even more fun to "require" those players to come through the club's youth program. That would be fun with any club. Thanks, 1magine.
  20. Oh, that's another good idea! It's definitely something to think about...and a very tough task. Thanks, isignedupfornorealreason.
  21. Not amazingly so no - it's a problem that seriously bothers me but I only mention it sporadically as I don't see there's an awful lot I can do about it in this type of save - at least in the short term. According to the mentoring panel, these are the most significant 'influencers' in my squad; Yet a quick perusal at their stats show how deep the problem runs with very average determination across the board; John Jeffs is possibly my best hope here but is only classed as an 'average' influence right now so might be decent as a mentor but not legendarily so (and putting him in a group might backfire and reduce him!)? The problem is that away from mentoring the entire squad now influences each other and the trend for determination in my squad as a whole has been a depressing backwards one, with Grant Doran being a poster boy for the problem, starting at 18 when I first took over and now being rated at 12 - no specific mentoring, none of those random 'event drops' that sometimes occur, just gradual and painful decline! Determination is the one thing we really can't upgrade from a HoyD perspective either; I guess in some ways I'm paying for having played people like Morgan James since the start of this save - I mentioned in one of my very first posts about how his super low determination rating is everything I hate in an FM player, yet he proceeded to continually play well to the point I couldn't leave him out (which taught me a lesson too), the issue then of course is as he's improved, so has his influence which in turn means he rubs his 'dirty low determination' all over the other lads which no doubt brings them down towards his level (which is a dismal 3). I've learnt to relax a fair bit more in this save about the personalities/mental stats than I ever normally would purely because I'd go crazy otherwise such is the limit on my powers of being able to do anything - I don't have many options to improve on my staff and I obviously have no ability to buy in decent role models etc so it's got to be a slow and gradual improvement which means frustration and some high PA youngsters may fall by the wayside but heck, I guess that's why they call it the Academy challenge!
  22. It wasn't hidden by a member or Mod, so I can't tell who hid it- it may have been an admin, perhaps in error
  23. I want to try a new formation with Arsenal. I’ve been advised not to do it as I’m not tactically competent enough. I want to try it anyway, and see how I go. Here is how I have set up, thoughts?
