  1. How many days before international matches do the squads have to be selected? I don't have a game for 50 days but want to go on holiday until I need to pick the squad, just don't know how long that should be.

    [Scotland] (Official) Data Issues

    Tom Rogic is listed as being suspended for a Scottish Cup match having been sent off. This is inaccurate.
  3. Did the latest update change hair colours of the managers appearance/appearance screen? I no longer have any black hair option.
  4. Nobody in their right mind would pay 90 quid for it

    Club Overview Panel

    Thanks for the reply. Messed around a little and got this which I'm quite happy with: Would you know if it's possible to add a panel to show city pictures to that and if so how? As simple as looking for a skin that has that and copying the file over into the panels folder in the base skin?

    Club Overview Panel

    Do you know how I can get that screen to look like this: That was my setup on 16 but I can't for the life of me remember how I done it. Basically I'd prefer the stadium image/panel to be larger and more central as opposed to bottom right like in your image. All help appreciated.
  7. If it isn't possible then they need to fix the fact that even when you 'create new profile' it reverts back to the original profile regardless of how you edit your appearance in the new profile.
  8. I have. Majority of people who complain either get completely shot down or the tired answer of "you must be doing something wrong with your tactics". I'd wager that back in the days of FM09 people were still saying "it's your tactics" when let's be honest, that is well known as probably the worst FM game ever.
  9. I wasn't referring to his post... nice dodge of the squad "bust ups" and injuries though. Both of which are way too common.
  10. The problem with this franchise is that the fanbase is so dedicated that they'll never criticise the game but only the player. As shown above.
  11. Are tactics to blame for half the squad falling out with the manager every few weeks and the other half getting injured? Why since FM13 have away matches seemed like a trip to the Bernabeu or Stamford Bridge regardless of opponent? Not every away match IRL is overly hard. I don't think Chelsea looked at Sunderland on Saturday and thought "right, tough away game here, time to drop Hazard and play Mikel". City won't do it tonight vs them either but in FM you almost always have to chop and change to be successful. It just doesn't work like that IRL yet FM pride themselves on being the realest football simulation game out there. Tactically it's like the AI has sussed you out so you need to change tactics. That seems to have been a theme for the past few years now. IRL do you think Barcelona change their tactics every few months just on the off chance that Getafe have finally tippled onto what they're going to do when they play them? You need to change tactics every so often but then the fluidity of your tactic goes way down and you still get hammered by vastly inferior opposition. On another very popular FM forum there's a "post your success" and "post your rage" thread. One has 4 pages. The other has 86. That's an awful lot of tactical mistakes, no?
  12. I'm Spurs and my issue here is my LB (Shaw). His reaction once we give the ball away, he just stands watching their player as 4 players sprint past him down his side of the pitch. Is there anyway that you can get your full backs to get forward (when necessary) but also get back quickly on defence? If they aren't doing what Shaw did in the video then they're rushing out of position and closing down unnecessarily and the ball will get passed into the space they've vacated, crossed in and usually result in a goal. I want my back four to be solid defensively, no rushing out of defence or letting men run past them. What's the way to go about it?

    The Most Frustrating FM Ever...

    Genius I too am enjoying the game. I love my defenders standing watching George Elokobi dribble through them.
