  1. The Big Dilemma

    Save, accept job, save as new save. Play each save as you fancy.
  2. Became bored

    Use one of the mid-season start dates (e.g. Brazil December 2016) and go with whichever club in whichever league that started in August/September seems most interesting. A play-off challenge for an underachieving club? Saving the bottom side from relegation? Massive turn-around for a title challenge? I had a save with Spurs last year where we won the league from about 18 points back starting mid season.
  3. CA/PA List

    If he doesn't appear in the list I posted, then he's -85 or below, or has a set PA. The latter is more likely.

  5. Wasteful Shooting

    Look at the analysis tab to see where the shots are being taken from. If it's from mostly far out, try selecting 'work ball into box' in your team instructions. You could also try selecting 'shoot less often' for some of your forward players, especially those with low composure or decision making attributes. Or you may just need better strikers.
  6. The UI for the setting up a game is so nice.
  7. Brexit and FM17

    Check out Miles twitter. He's confirmed that no Brexit is also in the game.
  8. Fulham and MK Dons as well. Throw Wolves in there as well.
  9. Brexit and FM17

    Article 50 hasn't been triggered, and until it does, you can't really say it will happen. And a hard Brexit means you'd have to sell most of your non-UK players. Players like Payet and Kante who would've failed work permit applications had they been from non-EU nations when they came to the Premier League. That's one of the outcomes and it's decided at the start of a save but doesn't come in until much much later. That will be save breaking, definitely.
  10. Brexit and FM17

    You get told Brexit negotiations begin, yes. You then get told the outcome. Which would potentially mean I'd then have a year to sell most or a large part of my squad. That's save breaking, especially if Brexit is always going to happen which to be honest, is a stretch when Article 50 hasn't even been triggered.
  11. Brexit and FM17

    So Miles has just confirmed on twitter that you can't opt out of the Brexit thing. This actually has me rethinking my pre-order, because I don't want to start a save and put hours and hours in and then suddenly I've got to sell half my players due to a hard Brexit. That would just completely ruin that save, and since Miles thinks a hard Brexit is the most likely outcome, I'm wondering if this is going to be the most likely outcome in the game as well.
  12. Brexit and FM17

    I'm not entirely pleased to see this - and would much rather prefer it to be a toggle on/off thing, if as suggested in the features topic there's only three outcomes: 1. freedom of movement remains, 2. footballers in the UK get special status or 3. "hard" brexit happens and all non-UK players needs work permits. At this stage, with Article 50 not even triggered yet - and some debate as to whether the government can trigger it without Parliamentary approval - Brexit might not even happen (and no, I'm not trying to start a debate on this last point). I feel like it'd definitely ruin a fun save I had going if at a certain point all my players from Europe had to apply for work permits and my team ends up significantly weaker if they don't get them.
  13. Thinking about it, I can't really think of anything introduced that seemed like it was done because SI had competition. BGS entries into the CM series were a mess and Total Club Manager/Fifa Manager were always much more gimmicky games than FM (e.g. building a girls' school so none of your academy players dropped out).
