  1. FM18 Rate My Newgen Thread

    Yeah, he's so good I think he's legitimately ruined my save. Currently in January of his first full season. He doesn't turn 17 for another 3 months, and he's averaging 1.3 goals per game. (including 13 in 6 CL games)
  2. FM18: Everton FC - The People's Club

    I dunno, even as an Everton fan I don't know if I'd blame it on that. I think a lot has to do with Rooney's character/personality. When he was 16/17 he literally looked like he could end up the greatest player in history. He was far better than C.Ronaldo was at the same age. I think the difference came down to 2 things: 1) Rooney didn't dedicate himself to his craft the way Ronaldo did. By all accounts Ronaldo was the first in, last out of every training session, and was absolutely obsessive about fitness etc. The same simply can't be said for Wayne. 2) Rooney has throughout his career been far more willing to do whatever was best for the team, irrespective of whether it was best for him as an individual. This has meant he's played all over the place, and throughout games has been willing to do a lot of running, tracking back etc etc.
  3. FM18 Rate My Newgen Thread

    (posted this in the Everton thread yesterday, but thought it may be of interest here) Comfortably the best Newgen I've ever had come through my youth setup in any version of CM/FM:
  4. FM18: Everton FC - The People's Club

    Definitely in that ball park. Think people forget how good Rooney was (for his age) back in 2002. Even with everything he's accomplished in the game, I don't think he lived up to the potential he showed at that age.
  5. FM18: Everton FC - The People's Club

    Solid advice.
  6. FM18: Everton FC - The People's Club

    Couldn't until he turned 16!!
  7. FM18: Everton FC - The People's Club

    Just had a ridiculous Newgen come through in my Everton game.
  8. [FM18] 5-2-3 WB Everton

    No idea how you're getting those defensive performances mate. I'm conceding about 2.5 goals a game using this tactic, with an upgraded defence.
  9. Football Manager TV: Matchday

    Direct X11 on PC Any word for how the new engine is being handled for Mac?
  10. Yeah, but let's be honest, is there anyone in the world at this point who doesn't know Macs are more expensive than Windows PC's? Most (if not all) people who've made the decision to buy a Mac - particularly on a presumably fairly tech-savvy forum such as this one - have made that decision for a reason. The answer "don't get a Mac, get a Windows PC" is in general a really non-useful answer to the question "which Mac should I get?" Oddly, you hardly ever see the reverse happening.
  11. Why does every thread that contains someone who wants a Mac trigger a load of replies trying to convince them to do otherwise? @emfOf those two options, I'd recommend the Pro. If you can stretch your budget, I'd suggest going for one of the 15" Pros, as the graphical oomph is considerably greater. I'd certainly go for the Pro over the Air though, every time.
  12. Anyone know how long the lag time was last year between the update for the main game, and for FM Touch (PC version)
  13. Status on Brexit

    Real managers will have to deal with some version of Brexit in the future. They are taking jobs (and continuing jobs) currently, not knowing what sort of Brexit they'll have to deal with. FM managers will have to deal with some version of Brexit in the future. In FM17 we take jobs not knowing what sort of Brexit we'll have to deal with. See what you mean. So unrealistic.
