  1. I have decided on Darmstadt or Sheffield Wednesday, just need to pick between the two! Darmstadt is winning at the moment but i do think i will get relegated and sacked quite early doors, where has sheff wed i may not.
  2. lets kick this off..... Nation: European league (Italy, England, Spain, Germany) Division:any European Competition:none Media Prediction: any Board Expectation(s):any Transfer Budget: any Wage Budget: any Finances: any Other: Sleeping Giant, interesting back story/history looking for a game to really invest my time in.
  3. I had two different saves, My first one was: Leipzg > West Ham > Cardiff > Torino > Schalke > Milan > Man Utd = 15 seasons Second was Cheltenham Town = 11 seasons
  4. I found fm14 really easy tactically and i am finding fm15 more of a challenge! as always though, loving it!
  5. Having played through 5 1/2 seasons I will admit I am struggling with it more than i have ever have (but loving every minute of it). I have managed 5 clubs and been sacked twice and resigned once before I got sacked. My main issues are with creating any consistency with my tactics, I can go 3 games winning in style then go onto a 8/9 game losing streak. I presume it’s a tactic issue, but having played CM/FM since cm2, I have never had problems with tactics like this. Also the AI team always seems to score in the dying moments of a game. This I can cope with but is frustrating when it happens in the vast majority of games. Jumping from club to club and losing game after game is not a fun ride, I had to leave Torino after 9 games without winning in a row as I cruised them into the relegation zone from 12th in the league. Also I find the player moods to changeable, I understand they are human, but a whole team being upset and causing the team potentially to lose games because I am not playing a reserve striker who can’t score is a bit absurd However on the plus side, The transfer side is much improved, you can really negotiate with clubs now as well as contracts, having decided not to go over x amount on sign on fee or agent feeit has really made negotiating more fun as the AI is willing to compromise. The game is awesome and I am really enjoying it, if only I could get some consistency! The scouting is very good, the chairman interaction is enjoyable as well. The new side bar is so simple to navigate and I like all the extra information! so overall very happy with the game!
  6. I found my laptop was a good addition, moving away from a PC and meaning i can sit in the lounge whilst clicking away! also honesty! she knows how much i enjoy playing the game and on release weekend she will go away for the weekend/keep herself busy.
  7. then you could argue about all the players that don't move? Like Ronaldo, Messi, Giggs, Totti, Del Piero, these are all players that wouldn't leave their clubs so clubs don't go in for them IRL, but on FM we (the player) do go in for these players, so i always take stupidly high valuations as indication i cannot meet the transfer fee / club don't want to sell. They use to have the phrase 'this player is not for sale' in old games that didn't even let you offer a fee (cm2..)
  8. yeah i agree its realistic, but i think its the only way the game can say 'we are not selling' successfully. IRL the club would say to the team, look guys this isn't going to happen, no point in wasting your time, But i don't think the game can ever really replicate it.
  9. I think the high bids are the team trying to tell you they don't want to sell the player? i.e if united went in for pogba in real lift they may not have a bid of £60 million accepted, they may have to go up to 90m for it to be considered, so i think it may be the AI just basically saying 'we don't want to sell' unless the offer is stupid.
  10. How much money have Leipzig got then?
  11. I will do start my journey man career on the beta. i am currently holding off playing at all though, as have a wedding to go to at weekend (away from home) Then 3 days of work then a nice 2 days off work + weekend of solid playing!
  12. I tend to have release day off, purely to allow myself to have a day where i do nothing and just hark bark to days of being a student with so much free time, In a similar situation to you. So the release weekend I will hammer it and play non stop for a couple of days. Then life swings back round and I get back to normal 3/4 hours a week (more if i have the time!)
  13. I have a very soft spot for Dorchester Town, who i have managed on career saves since 09, even to the point whenever i go to dorset to visit family, I go see a game! Also big soft spot for AS Roma, from cm 2 days, when i managed them exclusively for the whole version (and then versions after that)
  14. 29 been playing CM/FM since CM2 (i only had the ITA,FRA,GER version!) Which began my love for italian football and football manager all at the same time! still play it, on my laptop in the lounge when we are watching tv, and sad to admit but i do have release day off every year, and have it as a day just for me, playing FM all day.
  15. out of interest what are the player restrictions for the Dortmund II? is it all under 23 and german only?
