  1. Does experience matter in FM?

    The first bit I do agree on, put an Englishman in South America and he will most likely struggle because next to no-one has done that before him, but once a group of Englishmen play over there they can pass on their knowledge and help others adapt, much like what's happened with when South Americans started playing in England, and a lot of South American players are in the top tier and 2nd tier of Premier League players, such as; Ederson (Man City's and worlds most expensive goalkeeper) Nicolas Otamendi, David Luiz, Danilo, Marcos Rojo, Antonio Valencia, Manuel Lanzini, Roberto Pereyra, Alexis Sanchez, Diego Costa, Roberto Firmino, Erik Lamela, Chicharito (Yes, I know he's Mexican) and Jose Izquierdo. I think that's quite a strong and exhaustive list of South Americans who have adapted well. In FM I guess there isn't exactly that but when you scout a player there is a thing in the report which says whether a player enjoys playing in big matches or not. Fortounis isn't as experienced, no, but Alejandro is 36 now so is very much on his last legs so it's good to have Fortounis and hopefully in future you can give Mario Vrushaj game time, shame you sold Panagiotis Retsos though.
  2. Does experience matter in FM?

    Most UK players stay in the UK because it's in their comfort zone, and because there's loads of money so why would you want to leave? You had Joe Hart at Torino last season, yes he wasn't great but he was abroad, Shaun Wright-Phillips is doing well in MLS, you have Jordan Sancho who's joined Dortmund from Man City and Eric Dier who spent 11 years at Sporting before joining Tottenham. Beckham, Gerrard, Cole, Lampard and Defoe have all been in the MLS, Ravel Morrison is currently in Mexico. There's bound to be more but these are just the ones at the top of my head. Aguero? Gabriel Jesus? Coutinho? As far as I'm aware these guys are all doing pretty well, as well as Richarilson at Watford, And for you saying that experience should always rule? Shall we take Olympiacos who have Thanasis Androutsos who last season was in the first team aged 19 and Kostas Fortounis who's only 24 and has only been back at Olympiacos for 3 seasons and has 81 appearances and 35 goals already as well as 30 caps for Greece, if you're good enough then you're old enough.

    March 2058 We're still holding on to a top half place before the split, we need to get ahead of Raith though to get a European spot. Our ground expansion is complete.

    December 2057 A very busy festive period sees us stay in 6th in the league following a lot of draws and we made the Europa League look a lot closer than it should have as we were just one point away from qualifying!

    Congratulations @ManUtd1 a very well deserved win and the biggest victory I've seen in the last 5 hours! (City vs Stoke)

    Miss Piggy wouldn't be like that? Surely?! *cough*
  14. The 8th Annual FMCU Awards - Awards Night

    I was not expecting that! I feel like I've taken part in the Zimbabwean election! I should probably have less threads next year.

    The right 2 threads up there, the very best of the year and both lasting the entirety of fm17 with more achievements possible in both!
