  1. Uzbekistan are a decent team in respect to Asia, have a good chance of finally making it to a World Cup. Hopefully when FM20 comes out we see some more talents from minnow nations
  2. It really makes it hard if teams don't invest in their facilities when you're trying to upgrade a nation
  3. I've played FM for 4 years but i've never had to concern myself with this as i've only ever worried about developing my own club but now i want to develop a league. I hope this still applies to Fm14, Do AI clubs upgrade their training and youth facilities, as well as youth recruitment if they have the finances to do so? I'm managing in the Malta league and i'm in 2033 and all my rivals still have basic training facilities, one of them has gotten to the Europa League group stages a couple of times so they're definitely financially comfortable
  4. Re playing a FM14 save and came across this gem... Not only really really talented, but also has them long blonde locks
  5. I wonder if Aldershot happen to have an affiliation with the St Vincent club? Very impressive either way
  6. 2 from the same team is nice, India is rare but with Canadian's it's more likely nowadays due to their being a few Canadian teams in the MLS. Alphonso Davies is a good example of this irl
  7. I am considering buying FM19 but i really just would need a save idea to purchase it, and i currently don't have one. I'm probably like a lot of people who have done a lot of the big challenges, I've done the San Marino challenge, i've managed a club in a minnow european nation and got them to Europe, i've managed the club i support, i've managed in the lower leagues of England and risen to the Prem. I've managed in every continent in the game, done the hexagon challenge. Done lots of international management. Managed an easy team in Man United too. Where can I go next? Youth Only doesn't appeal to me as i like signing players , I just feel like i've done all the fun things i can do in the game, obviously there's so much more fun to be had but I just cannot find any motivation to start a save as I can't think of anything that interests me.
  8. Caught up since you joined Westerlo in Belgium. Belize situation is another funny quirk that is keeping the different countries unique and interesting rather than just being the same thing every time! It's funny how a tiny island like Bermuda has 3 leagues to slog through, but glad to see a Sanmarinese player get brought in and start. Ireland's coefficient place is very worrying lol, fallen behind Malta!
  9. Hi, looking at the top one and the 3rd the specs all seem the same except one. the 1st laptop (£599) has a processor number 8250U, where as the 3rd laptop (£639) has a processor number 8300H. would you say this difference in processor is significant in upping my budget 40 quid or is there anything else about the 3rd laptop that makes it better than the 1st? Thanks.
  10. On the previous topic which has since been locked due to this new one i stated that my budget was £500-600. Smurf kindly showed me 2 laptops, as below I haven't managed to grab one yet as since black friday prices were all over the place and i was kinda thinking maybe in January they'll all take a dip again. The first link is now 899, which shows since Smurf posted it it's gone up about 300 quid. The 2nd link is only 479.98, would anyone be able to tell me if the 2 laptops below are really much different? If the differents in regards to FM is only minimal i may aswell go for the cheaper option "It's out of stock and it's not great - I think this would be better https://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/NX.GP8EK.003-Acer-Aspire-7-A715-71G-57YT_2156569.html I found this one https://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/NX.GS1EK.005-Acer-Aspire-5-A515-51-36BV_2385767.html Seems like it would do the trick - but if other exeperienced users on the forum wouldn't mind weighing in on it. "
  11. Big question here is why did Hannover decide to go over to Bangladesh for a pre season friendly
  12. Considering they struggle to even qualify in real life it's outlandish to me!
  13. Do you mind posting a couple of the best Renegades players? Just wondering how much of a skill gap there is! Any Non-Bahamians in the league out of curiosity?
  14. Andrei Agius has in my opinion been Malta's best player in the last few years performances wise. Well done on the progress, got a lot of good young talent, once you get in Europe I think Hibs and Valletta will stop snatching players from you. Interesting that Gzira aren't even in the prem, they're one of the better teams in the league recently, got europa league football last season
  15. That's surprising that he came through in Denmark, is your manager Canadian?
  16. The 'have to played 10 years' is a myth, only thing that's relevant is age, you have to be early 30's+. can happen in your 1st season or your 100th, just a 1/10,000 chance. I've never got one, and i spent hours once reloading my save to get one, you're really lucky if it happens
  17. Oh my god a Sanmarinese player who could be the best of a generation, you have to keep tabs on him surely? Also found it a bit harsh playing a full strength team against little austrian teams in the early rounds of the cup
  18. Lol, in FM terms, Scotland, USA and Canada are 3 nations who generally seem to overachieve. Although you will always get 1 or 2 quality players for Scotland in real life per generation
  19. I love this challenge, what's great about it is different countries provide different challenges. If it was me doing this challenge, (My laptop is too poor to even try) i'd think 'ahhh, Austria is gonna be a drag', obviously a good footballing nation but nothing too spectacular... Then you see the top league has tycoon owned Champions League winners and it becomes probably one of the most intruiging challenges so far! Stays fresh with the diversity of quality and learning about football in new countries
  20. Do you know if he came from a Kyrgyzstan club? That's a really good one!
  21. With Brexit now a big thing on FM and most people's saves probably being in England do you think there's been a lack of minnow players coming through? There's a rule on work permits which relates to needing a certain position in the FIFA world rankings to get a work permit, which makes it tougher for minnow players to come through. However i think for the most part on FM wonderkids normally come through academies of a nation like France / England / Germany and have dual nationality, very rarely a wonderkid will generate in their home country but when that happens it's even better. I haven't got FM19 yet but didn't really have anyone come through from a small nation in FM18, however had a Rwandan come through when i was United manager on Fm12 and also had someone with Tuvaluan 2nd nationality at Newcastle on FM15
  22. St Andrews are one of the weakest teams in the top flight. Sliema have a good history but are sorta a mid-table team atm. Are you gonna stick with Mdina? And have you considered taking on the Malta national job? The teams fairly weak but there a few good players around with dual nationality in England. I'm part Maltese and in the first season you signed someone who has the exact same name as me!
  23. "Meaning if i get a player that has ability of PA of 120 and i make him score 35 goals in the premiership his PA will not change one bit ! And to me that is unrealistic and flawed it should be that his PA should increase if he scores 35 goals in the premiership !" I actually agree with this point but not in terms of PA. Like already explained that isn't how PA works, but what I would like to see is player value and a higher level of clubs interested in a player if he is playing really well. For example,on FM18, my first season managing Newcastle Dwight Gayle scored about 37 goals for me, at the end of the season only Championship clubs showed any interest in him, and that was nothing to do with the season he had, it's just that's Dwight Gayle's level based on his attributes. Realistically, if Dwight Gayle was top scorer in the Premier League, i'd expect him to be rewarded at the end of the season with interest from a club playing in Europe. You could argue that that may be considered a one season wonder incident in real life and there may not be any real interest for him but there are other examples on FM where i've had a player just playing well above his attributes for a few seasons and yet his value barely changes and nobody wants to sign him. There's probably better examples but of the top of my head Danny Drinkwater signing for Chelsea is an example of this. Does his attributes make him good enough for Chelsea? No, but did his form for 2 seasons at Leicester make him deserve that opportunity, i'd argue yes. Wilfried Bony maybe as well, was really good for Swansea and ended up becoming a back up at Man City because of his form.
