  1. This issue has been in the game for a good few years now unfortunately
  2. League Position Its been a tough season so far with 0 points after 8 games and sitting rock bottom. We need to turn it around ASAP to survive in the league. Facilities and Trophies We play in a 1k capacity stadium and have basic and poor facilities. As we have a focus on bringing through youth we will want to improve our youth facilitities We have 6 trophies in our history, but none of them major Welsh trophies Squad We are a squad with payers on part time contracts. We are stacked with talented CMs and hardly any wide players. We desperately ned points, so our focus will have to be on solidifying our defence. For all these reason I decided to go with a tactic that fills the middle of the pitch, so hopeully we can keep he ball. One of our attacking midfielders will drift wide and the other will act as a second striker.
  3. I've jus started my managerial save, my first since FM22. I will be documenting the journey in a similar way to how I did back then, hopefully its engaging and is a fun read, feedback on how it can be more entertaining will be appreciated. I will be acting like a modern manager, working with a DoF, I'll only be able to recommendations to my DoF on transfers, contract renewals staff and scouting, but the DoF has the last say. I will take full control of training and tactics and the first team coaches though. The first post is here: @Junkhead @Brother Ben But just for this first post Im putting it here too: 29 year old Arsenal supporter Nathan Francis was visiting Snowdonia in Wales on holiday when he met a man named Steve Green when eating in Bryn Arms restaurant. They got along quite well and they spoke about football in detail, particularly on the tactical side and analytical side, and Steve Green was impressed. The conversation almost felt like an interview. At the end of the conversation Steve Green revealed he is chairman for Semi-Professional Welsh Cymru South team Trefelin Boys and Girls Club, based in industrial town Port Talbot, and in a half serious tone said, "If we ever need a new manager you should apply". Nathan seriously considered it as it would be a dream, and once he saw that Trefelin BGC had sacked their manager in late September he applied. Whilst in the moment he also applied for other jobs around the world in the lower divisions and was asked for a few interviews, but he decided not to go to them, knowing he didn't have the credentials. The interview with Trefelin went well, with Nathan being honest and also telling them he would be more than happy to work with DoF Dan Bates. He also decided to apply for for the team that was last in Cyrmu North and got an interview. Trefeling offered Nathan the job and he accepted, travelling up to Wales right away and signed a 1 year contract on £130 p/w, which means it is a part time job for now while he also does a remote working analytics job. Trefelin are currently last in the league with 0 points after 7 games in Cymru South wanted to avoid relegation and have the same goal for the next 5 years. Its a big challenge. but the ethos of the club is something that really resonated with Nathan. They have strong community roots with both boys and girls and their first team is littered with players that have been with the club since kids. Its the type of football romance I love and wish to continue. Message from the chairman that was made 2 years ago when they first entered Cymru South This is the start of the dream and that dream extends to managing Arsenal one day! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The next post will cover the squad and facilities and all posts will be written in first person from now on Note: In this career I hope to achieve success in Wales before continuing a managerial journey that culminates in me joining Arsenal and winning the league and Champions League. That's the dream, but whether I get there is another question. I will act as a modern Head Coach/manager and so will have a DoF that takes care of transfers, contract renewals, scouting and hiring staff (apart from first team coaches). I will recommend players to my DoF for transfers, contract renewals and being scouted, but the DoF will always have the final decision. Players that I don't want sold under any circumstances will have that set on the player screen, but the board can of course still overrule this. Features: I will make a post after every game month passes, but preseason will be covered in one post. Each post will have a video of our goal of the month (voted by me) and summary of the top scorers. And also a summary of any major events in the wider world of football Game DB notes: Every league and every division is loaded. Full detail leagues are my current league, major international comps, the Champions League, and the Premier League

  5. The attributes of the DoF does make an impact to bth the players they choose to try and sign and their ability to actually sign the players
  6. Please SI listen to this for the next game, make it an option if you must but its something that really takes away from the realism and immersion
  7. I disagree, managers often change formation and player roles a lot during real Prem matches. And then season to season formations and play roles are always changing. You explained it correctly, the core principle should often stay the same, but the specific formations should change.
  8. Depends which issues you are referring to but it's a big improvement overall
  9. Whichever team is predicted to be last in the lowest Northern Ireland league. I'll start once the update for the main game is released and I'll make a thread in the Stories forum. How about you?
  10. Something I wanted for a long time. From a realism point of view, if you are starting the game employed then Your world makes sense. If you are starting unemployed then choose Real World, however start the game after the transfer window has ended. Also PSA: I will be playing FM 24 after and giving my updates in this thread and the Story forum like I did in FM 22. As usual I'll be using a DoF
  11. That's because you copy and pasted instead of cut and pasted. If you are copying you are making a copy of all the files which will take a long time and is unnecessary as you have duplicate files
  12. FM24 heralds a significant milestone for the series and the wider SEGA family as it marks our official debut in Japan and the first time Japanese language will be officially supported in our games.
  13. They already said this is coming in fm 25
  14. Same, a good touch with transparency
  15. Good to see set pieces have been overhauled! I really really hope the DoF functionality is much improved as it's a MASSIVE part of transfers now and they don't really work well in FM
  16. Yep thats why graphics sliders exist. However the CPU and RAM requirements need to upgrade. There are SO many new features that could be added or existing features that could be improved if they did this. The game currently caters to machines built in 2009, you cant improve a game to modern standards when you are doing that, and you will find it difficult to attract a new generation of players. With those requirements the SI team have done very well. Players playing on an Xbox Series X but are seeing a game that supports 2009 hardware will be a hard sell
  17. Yeah what gunner86 said is true. Or alternatively you can make lists within your shortlist. So you can make one for ex/current staff
  18. Yeah sometimes they jsut change their mind over time, but trying to build your relationship with the player always helps
  19. I highly doubt it, and nothing they've said points towards this. They haven't even mentioned anything about being able to build stadiums
  20. I was thinking it would be today, but it could be next week. Normally the initial announcement video has no details though, its only at the end of september where they start talking about features
  21. The option is there but it is not fleshed out properly and it has very little depth, which in my opinion leads to a massively frustrating playing experience. The main issue is that the DoF makes decisions in isolation from you the manager/first team coach, rather than making decisions together as a team. Im hoping its improved in FM24 as this is how I want to play - and from the forums it seems like a lot of people want to play like this. Just a few of the glaring issues with it: If the DoF is set to renew player contracts you cant talk to the DoF to give your view on a player - to say whether you think they have a role going forward and how often you think they will play (playing time). This leads to the DoF renewing contracts of players on big wages that you never play, or not renewing contracts of players you always play To get around this you can make it so that the DoF will only try renew the contract of players you tell them to - but in this case STILL you cant tell them what expected playing time to give them, which leads to negotiations breaking down VERY often If you set a player as a transfer target the DoF will not make multiple bids for the player, they will make one bid and if its unsuccessful they will leave it at that. This means you wont be able to buy most players They dont offer a lot of your best youth academy prospects a contract during the trial period In my experience they have found it extremely difficult to come to contract renewal agreements on your most talented u18 players due to salary demands, so you lose most of them There are two options for using a DoF: Either you let them choose who to buy and sell - but when they do this they dont take into account your playing style, the type of players you need for your tactic and how you think players will progress. And you cant give them suggestions for transfer targets. This means the DoF builds an unbalanced squad that doesnt fit your tactics Or you tell them who you want them to buy and sell (which kind of defeats the purpose of having a DoF) - but in this case their negotiating skills are often subpar, you cant tell them the expected playing time for contract renewals which then impacts the wage they give and leads to contract renewals failing even though the player isnt asking for much. The main cause of this is that you and the DoF can have wildly different views of a player, for example: I viewed a player as a key player (and his current playing time matched that) however the DoF viewed him as a squad player, which meant even the player had modest salary demands the DoF wouldnt match it. This issue happens often. The telling them who to sell feature doesnt really work either as if an unsolicited bid for a player comes in you cant tell the DoF to reject any transfer offers - you have to do it yourself (which means you are subverting the DoF which doesnt make sense) The reason for this is likely because this is not a main feature, the design of the game is catered for not using a DoF, but of course football has changed so hopefully FM updates with it. Training should have much more depth than transfers in my opinion, as that reflects the responsibilities of a modern manager.
  22. Hoping I'll be back in here for FM24, it all hinges on if DF functionality and behaviour has been improved
