  1. Anything below 6.7 for me is unacceptable. But that's just my style. I am a very demanding manager.
  2. Started my save when beta came out. First season won the league on +1 goal difference over Spurs. That was sweet. In Europa league, lost in semis against AC Milan. Lost Carabao cup final against Chelsea and lost in the 6th round of FA cup against Ipswich. I've played 4-2-3-1 for the whole season. Sold Elneny to City and replaced him with Diawara from Napoli. Also brought in Tierney (Celtic) and Rosales (Malaga) to reinforce LB and RB positions. Tried to sell Walcott at the start of the 2nd season but no luck. I think he is too expensive after quite good campaign. Don't think I will offer him a new contract though. Brought in Lucas Moura (PSG) and Virgil van Dijk (southampton). I gave lot of playing time to Nelson in the 1st season, he is developing really good. Also Iwobi had a great season. Sanchez left on free to City. Lacazette was player of the year but he broke his leg in the 2nd friendly I've played. Second season, I have quite big issues in away games, losing against Newcastle and West Ham ,and losing opening day game against Tottenham at the Emirates. So that's three loses already in 7 games. Won against Bournemouth away with a 90 minute goal from Wilshere in otherwise uninspiring performance from the team. I must reshape my away approach. On the other hand, in the CL we have won both games, home against PSG and away at Inter. Quite impressive start to the campaign. My ideal first team for now is: Cech - Tierney,van Dijk,Mustafi,Bellerin - Diawara,Xhaka - Iwobi,Ozil,Lucas Moura - Lacazette My ideal second team is: Heaton - Kolasinac,Koscielny,Chambers,Rosales - Coquelin,Ramsey - Nelson,Wilshere,Walcott - Welbeck
  3. But when I select "requested" it is always no players there even though I have ordered my scouts to scout 5 players...
  4. Has there been some update to the ME which has not been announced here because I've played two games yesterday evening and there were a lot of through balls form the AI defenders to their attackers and my defenders just couldn't cope with. I played standard, normal defensive line and counter. My defenders are Van Dijk and Koscielny and I was playing friendly vs some really ****** teams so it was strange. Can't remember one ball like this in the entire season I played..Very weird.
  5. I don't know about australia but my south american players are more fatigued than europeans when they come back from WC qualification games.
  6. Is Alexis Sanchez hardcoded to leave Arsenal? He didn't want even discuss new contract at the start of the season, then in winter he wanted to leave for CL football. I told him we will achieve top4 finish and he agreed to stay for that. After I won the league I got the news that Sanchez is now happy to stay because promise was fullfiled but when I tried to offer him new contract again he won't even discuss. His profile says he is happy at the club, and has like 4,5 items more that are positive about everything but he refuse to discuss contract and at the contract screen his agent says player wants to leave. Confusing.
  7. You are just unbeliavable. So you handled the situation perfectly with your backup RB. Let's see...In your words you are at the crunch time of a season and your backup player demands to play over your first choice. So,you tell him no and then 10 players (half the squad) comes and demands from you to play inferiour player which you accept and all is well. :rofl: So, how realistic is this scenario in real life? For example, here comes Michael Carrick to Mourinho's office 10 games until the end of a season in which United is in a ,let's say, top4 battle and Carrick says "look, I think I should play instead of Pogba". Mourinho tells him no and next thing here are half of United squad who demand that Carrick plays instead of the best player in the club. And Mourinho says.."well, why not." You think this is how the story would end? And the players who whish to replace Pogba with their friend Carrick, like they know Carrick is like 10 times worse for the team but still..hey, he is our friend and we want him to play! This is just stupid and unrealistic.
  8. I have been playing cm/fm since forever and over the years I have played thousands of matches and I think I saw a keeper foul a striker for a penalty and a red card maybe just a couple of times. Is there something under the hood which makes this kind of situations extremely rare? For example in FM16 and Fm17 I have not seen this even once from my keeper or the AI.
  9. 80 goals conceded. The teams are obviously pummeling you and have a lot of corners against you. so if you concede 5 corners per game,and I suspect it's even more, that's like 200 corners conceded in a single season. So now, you go figure why you concede 20 goals from corners. And I just want to say that the horizontal tactical view when you click on tactics during a match is completely redundant. Why have one click to get to the useful tactics screen when you can have two clicks. Is there any way to remove this nonsense screen?
  10. I'm having quite a good season so far with Arsenal using 4-2-3-1. Control/Flexible TI: play shorter,work ball in to box,be more expressive,prevent gk distribution Cech -GK/D Bellerin- WB/A Mustafi - BPD/D Koscielny - CD/D Monreal - FB/S Xhaka - DLP/D Diawara - CAR/S Walcott - IF/S Ozil - AP/S Sanchez - IF/A Lacazette - DLF/A Sometimes, depending on the game I will change the mentality to standard or counter, use pass into space instruction and change the fullbacks role(more attacking or more defensive) , striker role(TM with Giroud if I go more direct for late goal) or Walcott(switch to winger if I want more width).
  11. The calendar in my game is totally broken? It is worse than it was..was there some update that made it worse?
  12. So this pre game chat with your team about tactics..Really you need to go ove every TI with the squad. Like "guys ,today we play control" reaction "nobody cares." Same reaction for everything I've said. lol I think this is one feature I will never use again. Don't see the point at all.
  13. Which is fine, but in FM17 classic view also had the stands around the pitch and it looked nice. This on the other hand, just looks ugly. Is there any chance for a change in a full release, make it look like it was?
  14. And you don't? Have you seen what it looks like?? Btw I only have 2D classic option, is there just 2D option like in FM17?
  15. Okay, can someone elaborate on the horrific 2D view? Sea of grey with the pitch in the middle? Is this a bug or is this by design?
  16. I might be stupid, but I can not get a grip on scouting. I can't find where can I filter players like "midfielder-right side-value 5-15mil-right foot" like it was on fm17. Here I can only say "Defenders/midfielders/attackers"?? How do I choose only DM's or AM's or wingers? What is this "general" and "short term" options where you choose players under "intelligent/physical/etc.." with "peak/young/etc.." ? What is that, how does that work? I took control over Arsenal and apparently they only have scouting package of England?? So then I bought the "entire world" package, because why not but I can't really see the difference. I feel dumb. And how do the packages work anyway? Because I had England package only but then in my inbox I was recieving players from all over the world. ( I suppose it's my chief scout sending me those). Do I need to remove him from responsibility for scouting in oreder for me to be able to filter players like in FM17 or what? Also, what's up with 2D camera? Why is there no stadium, only a pitch with massive gray ugly surroundings? Why is there no 2D camera, only 2D classic? And why on earth are ManCity and PSG interested in Mohammed Elneny???
  17. - Generated player & staff portraits disabled so does this means i don't have to bother with facepacks or is it something else?
  18. So Miles didn't say it won't be out today. We know that tomorrow it will be for sure, but it could obviously be ready today.
  19. If you ask 100 people that play the game wether they would rather have realistic matchday atmosphere or in-game twitter, I would presume it would be 90 people in favour of realistic sounds. Can't imagine anyone likes the absolutely irrelevant in-game twitter feature.
  20. I think I'll start with Arsenal, sell Sanchez and Ozil and start from there.
  21. So, I presume if you manage a big club with lots of money (or just any PL club), nothing really changes because you are able to buy all packages that are available. But for clubs with limited resources it will be a smaller pool from where you can search?
  22. Totally agree. They should get rid of "twitter" which is so badly implemented anyway it is a joke. I honestly have no idea who even bothers to check this in the game. Generic and completely unrealistic. Also press conferences. Tedious, boring, unimportant...just a huge waste of time. Not to mention, they have been the same for years now. I did preorder though, of course. Can't understand moaning here of people who are playing the game every year and now don't want to buy because they don't know what they will get..really? The core of the game has been the same for 20 years now, so to say you don't know what you will get is just a massive load of crap, I'm sorry.
