  1. Having serious issues with injuries (mostly in training). Anybody else?
  2. I'm Spurs and have won back to back titles so why would the player demand so much more from me compared to City (I mention the titles because clearly I'm the better team atm and don't necessarily need to tempt him with money to come to me) and then why would he also choose to accept so much less from them? Everton accepted a bid of 27.5m for him from City and I had to pay 39m before they'd accept. Why is the AI so clearly favoured when it comes to contracts and transfer fees? Posted the link instead of the images because I wasn't sure if they'd take up the entire page or if it's acceptable. Apologies if you can't view the link.
  3. I'd like to see a stronger AI in terms of squad-building.
  4. Congratulations on the most patronising and arrogant post I've ever seen on these forums (believe me, that takes some doing). I don't care what the SI developers say. It is simply unrealistic for players to miss matches and up to a week at a time because they have a cold or they have a bruised head or any of the other silly little niggling injuries within the game. To deny that much only serves to back up my initial claim. Would this be the same SI developers who think every conversation (no matter how friendly and good natured it may be) ends with a player insulting his manager? Or, perhaps the same SI developers who were too lazy to program a winter world cup into the game? They get it wrong from time to time.
  5. He said he feels it does. His opinion which he's entitled to... Only the most ardent of SI stans would argue that the injuries on this game are realistic. As pointed out, players don't miss matches because they have a runny nose. Players dont miss a week of football because they have a bruise on their head.
  6. 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.
  7. I wasn't referring to his post... nice dodge of the squad "bust ups" and injuries though. Both of which are way too common.
  8. 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.
  9. 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?
  10. 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?
  11. Genius I too am enjoying the game. I love my defenders standing watching George Elokobi dribble through them.
  12. I never saw anything sorry. Who's that and how do I go about doing it? I offered Dzeko out for 27m (his valuation) and there was no interest. Offered him out for 20, 15 and 10 before finally offering him out for 20k. There was still no offers, would he be interested in that too?
