  1. In my save I'm up to 10th January in my first season at Newcastle. On the transfer front, not a huge amount of activity - I've brought in Dan Crowley from Willem II for £5m (£5.5m), Re-signed Kevin Mbabu from Young Boys for £12.5m (£13m) and also picked up Samir Nasri on a free (Who has only made 2 appearances so far due to his global ban until 31/12/18). No outgoings as yet, other than Jamie Sterry and Callum Roberts going out on loan. Things started off well, won all 7 of my friendlies, scoring 12 and conceding 1. Then day one of the league season got off to a cracking start with a
  2. I 100% agree with this. I have tried in many previous other games to wrap my head around the training, with little success. I wouldn't describe myself as a 'casual' FM player by any means but I have an Xbox and a PS4, and a large gaming backlog (That's without mentioning a full time job and a social life) - I just don't have the time or inclination to really get to grips with (what seems very much like) a complex training system when the time I spend on the game can be somewhat limited as it is. Fully respect those who have the time and manage to master it, but when it's just as easy to d
  3. Getting Dirk Kuyt to score 50+ goals in a single season for me at Chelsea.
  4. Can't say I've heard of this before. Strange - Do you have any custom skins and/or graphics installed? Are you playing in windowed mode or full screen?
  5. Yeah - I am finding this out now. In my second season with Arsenal and my two philosophies are to play attacking football and possession football. They are very happy with my attacking football but not so much with possession football. I am consistently getting over 50% in the majority of my matches but rarely reach 60%. Gonna see if I can get it removed next chance I get. Tried to do it when negotiating a new contract around the end of my first season but they wouldn't go for it.
  6. I'll start with the team I support, Newcastle United. See how I get on with that then I tend to like to start a game as a top 4 side from England or Spain. I have the utmost respect for anybody who has the patience and dedication to take a team from the very bottom to the very top, but it's something I have never been able to stick with and follow through, although I hope to do so one day. So I like to take over a big team with a big budget as that's how I enjoy the game the most.
  7. Is this "honest mistake" similar to (or the same as) the option which allows you to select apologising due to an administrative error? I accidentally left out Ozil from my Champions League squad last night and basically just backed out and bottled the conversation because I didn't think he'd react well to that.
  8. Buying/Selling: Selling Player Name: Serge Gnabry Your Team: Arsenal Buyer/Seller: Bayern Munich Player's Value: £8.5m Offer: £5.25m up front, £5m over 12 months, £3m after 10 league apps, £600k per league apps (10 apps) £3m after 10 league goals Transfer/Wage Budget: £31.9m / £111k p/w Patch: 15.3.2 Season: 15/16 I have Ozil, De Bruyne, Sanchez, Cazorla, Podolski, Walcott who can play in his position(s) and aside from Podolski all of the others are currently ahead of him in my pecking order, but he has age on his side. I don't need to sell but at the minute he's only in my plans for
  9. I see, in that case I retract my statement of doubt!
  10. Hmmm he's got Paint open in his screenshots and in the first one, in the actual article text there's a spelling mistake "Movemeber". I smell something fishy, and I'm not talking about Baldrick's apple crumble!
  11. I believe this has been discussed on numerous occasions and is never likely to be implemented. That's what it's Football "Manager" and not Football "Chairman". I don't know anything about programming or designing a game but I would imagine this would be a very big overhaul too. The money you "earn" as a manager is purely superficial and cannot be used in any way, shape or form.
  12. I'd agree with this. It would definitely filter back to the manager of the club in some way, shape or form. In fact IRL 9 times out of 10 it'd likely end up in the papers at some point so it'd be readily available information.
  13. So I'm playing as Newcastle, and I've had a pretty rough time of it so far. In the first season I've been at 'very insecure' job status. I seem to be pulling it back in my favour and have won three league games on the spin. I go into what should be a straightforward 3rd round FA Cup tie at home to Reading, 20th in the Championship. I play a reasonably strong team with a couple of fringe and youth players in there, and I give Olivier Kemen his senior debut. I'm 1-0 up with about half an hour left and Kemen gets his second yellow card for a stupid trip in the centre circle, it's the turning poi
  14. Hi guys, Something I've been wondering since FM14 - What's the best reply to give when you get asked about who you think the opposition weak link is? I always choose 'no comment' as I'm forever fearful that if I choose one of the players on the list they'll have a blinder against me. Can this actually work at all if you play it right?
