  1. Besides the all usual goals scored on rebounds in fm19, where a player kicks in a ball he just shot 0.2 seconds before with the same foot after the first shot was blocked, I discovered an even more unnatural goal: a direct free kick from some 17 meters, deviated by the wall, volleyed in by another player. Let's do some math. Average free kick velocity is 129 kmph, tht's 129.000 meters in 3.600 seconds. The free kick is just outside the penalty area, let's say it's 17m away. All players are outside the gk area, some 6 meters from the goal. The goal is scored from 3 meters away from a volley. Without taking acceleration into consideration, the ball travels those 14 meters on average in 0,39 seconds. Let's be generous and say it's slowed down in half by the deviation, so 9 meters on full speed, and 5 meters on half the speed. Thats 0.25 + 0,23 = 0,48 seconds. In FM19 aparently is possible in those 0,48 seconds for a player to anticipate the change in direction, move 3 meters, swing the leg back, swing the leg forward and actualy kick the ball on target from a volley. I'd say that's impossible given real physics. More math. If some player is able to just run 3 meters in 0,48 seconds, that means an average linear speed of over 22.5 kmph. Without taking acceleration into account that sounds realistic. If preparing and taking the shot takes just 0,2 seconds that takes the linear speed to 38.5 kmph for a player to do 3 meters in 0,28 seconds, again, with instant acceleration, and with 0,0 reaction times! This is done with really generous math and still makes a player with 13 accel, 14 pace, 14 anticipation and 15 first touch faster than any known human being. I don't want to imagine what are physics of an elite player are.
  2. It gets worse. One match later the projected balance was adjusted with over 1million! Basically, a variation of 1.5 mil in just 7 days. Later edit: the profit/loss for the current month varied between -19k and -22k between the dates
  3. I don't know what is taken into account when showing the projections of the finances (balance, profit, etc), but it needs to work better. The projections vary a lot from week to week, even from day to day (hundreds of thousands, sometimes millions). Playing with a club on tight budget it's guesswork given this huge variations. Here are some screenshots, before and after 2 consecutive matches, total difference 450k for projected balance on a current balance of aprox 2.2 mil. Both matches were won, but the projection went down by almost half a million. Also the projection of wages varied, even if nothing changed in terms of salaries in 4 days.
  4. @Christopher Lewis I uploaded it to the cloud, it's some 180mb. The file is called 'dart 2 - no u23.fm'
  5. Not really. Broughton looks almost the same 6 years later
  6. When a parent team doesn't have a u23 from the start and gets one after promotion / improved academy level, the squad filtering is missing the new u23 squad from the menu in every squad, even u23 itself. I'm attaching screens from squad overview, but this happens for tactics screens aswell. I assumed this happens because the team might get removed at the end of the season or in case of retrogradation. But no. After setting up a trial day (that generated 2 more squads - Trialists 1 and Trialists 2) - the u23 magically appeared in the menus, and remained there even after the trialists squad were disbanded. I think it's an issue of UI cache, not properly busting after squad structure changes. I backed up a save of 'before' and one of 'after' in case there are needed.
  7. My player tackles for the ball and puts the ball into the net after hiting the lateral post. VAR replay shows the ball crossing the line 1 meter into the goal. VAR decission: no goal, goal kick. Attached pkm. Happens around 11 m 57 s. Huddersfield v Dartford.pkm
  8. Hey. I just finished my first season with #FCUM and I recommend going for loans and maybe try to sign the players at the end of their contracts. The team has a great core, but also some deadwood. Unfortunately you can discard them only in december as all have signed new contracts in summer. My only 4 free transfers were: Jack Truelove (DL) - I just love this determined speedy guy. He loves to dribble and put croses in. Stephen Akbas (DR) - Nice young lad with bags of potential Bradley Maslen-Jones (CB) - a rock in my defence, with just 2 mistakes leading to goals in 47 games he played in. Kane Ferdinand (BWM) - big guy, pretty technical, managed to snap him just in march 2018 Take a look at my FM17 post wit FCUM about other recommendations. You can't get great stuff just yet, but if you start early with staff recruiting, you can get some decent coaches around 10k per year.
  9. My best players for my FC United side that helped me get the National Hero achivement, also very good signings in FM18: Jack Truelove (DL) - speedy fullback, not spectacular stats, not great margin for growing, but managed an average over 7.05 even in Championship (in 2021) Mich'el Parker (CB) - Liverpool youth, no agility and no determination, but develops alot. Stephen Jordan (CB) - mentioned before, veteran CB, great tutor. Retires in 2-3 years. Stephen Akbas (DR) - Hull youth, great technique, great speed, develops well, can become a Premier League player. Andrew Osei-Bonsu (BWM) - a physical beast from MK Dons. I could only get him on loan. Sam Sheridan (DLP) - already at club, dead ball specialist, consistent playmaker, struggles above League Two. Sean Williams (MC/AMC) - not spectacular, not great stats, but super reliable. Good only for non-league. Callum Chettle (MC) - the best underrated young midfielder from Peterborough. Available on loan, then for free. Gets to become a Premier Division player. Scores 6+ goals per season from 20-25m shots. Averages over 7.30 Will Patching (AMC) - former City youth, has great physique, develops nicely, can be sold 500k+. Petre Skapetis (ST) - mentioned before, well-rounded, a killer for non-league. Stoke product, the only one I can't find on FM18 Simen Moller (ST) - a super-consistent norwegian target man in his prime, wants lots of money (60-70k a year), but scores 30+ goals a season, even in League Two. The only thing is... he's "retired from professional football", so tie him with a long contract before switching to professional status, I missed that chance. There are no wingers I can recommend, I played a narrow 4-3-1-2
