  1. Haven't really touched the game after Christmas. It's what usually happens, I play the game a lot the first month or two, then my interest dies down over the holiday period. This year it's been exacerbated by the match engine, along with the game feeling even easier than before. I'm well aware that playing with a big team like Liverpool doesn't help in that regard, but it honestly feels like the easiest edition of FM I've ever played. But getting results easily by playing uninteresting football is just frustrating. It does seem better after 19.2, but it still feels like 19.2 should've been the beta. Not sure if I'll still be playing by the time 19.3 is released.
  2. Yes, in Extra Time you can use a 4th substitution. The rule was approved by FIFA for the World Cup back in March 2018. The Fa Cup, however, has been using the rule since the start of the 2016/17 season. And starting from the current 2018/19 season, the 4th substitution rule is also in play in the Champions League and Europa League after UEFA approved it. For the Carabao Cup, the 4th substitution rule is only in play in the Final. The reason for this is that there is no Extra Time in the earlier rounds; games go straight to a Penalty Shootout. EDIT: In fact this rule was in play last year as well, but was not implemented in FM 18 due to "technical difficulties" or however you wanna call it (ie. they couldn't implement it in time because it proved more complex than simply adding a rule).
  3. I think there are way better options out there, and no player is worth £200m.
  4. The game should update automatically. You can check ingame by clicking the FM icon and then 'Game Status' near the bottom of the list. Current version is 19.2.0-1173367 (m.e v1922).
  5. Came across this strange bug after I received a news item saying my club had moved up to 1st position. When I click on the Rankings, it doesn't show 1st place but starts at 2nd. Screenshot: Scrolling further up is not possible. I've uploaded the save game, "jun21.fm". The news item is in the inbox already. Please see if you're able to reproduce.
  6. Loud crowd when playing United? Must be United's away matches then
  7. The player is not doing any individual training during the time he's taking the course. Not sure if there are any other cons.
  8. I disagree with most of this actually. Henderson might have a couple technical attributes overrated, but his physicals aren't. And saying his next stop will be a bottom/midtable team is just a strange prediction. Granted he won't go to City for £90m as he did in my save, but he's not exactly dead weight either. Clyne is definitely not overrated, he was just injured for basically a year and seems to not be the type of fullback Klopp is looking for, but he's always been an extremely solid and consistent defender. His attributes reflect this; he's not a very attacking fullback. The only reason he's doing well in FM is because most fullbacks get to do a thousand crosses each game so they rack up assists and high ratings. Keita has 170 PA which is very high. Ox is at 156 which is 2 below Henderson, I don't think he's underrated. As for van Dijk, he's a monster at 174 which is the same as Ramos and Bonucci, 2 higher than Varane and 3 higher than Hummels. He's already considered cream of the crop as far as centrebacks go. Not to mention he often brings the ball out of defence, he just doesn't do it all the time. A lot of the time he switches play too (which is reflected through the "tries long range passes"), but I'd rather say there's work needed in how the ME handles PPM's.
  9. It has to do with what they achieve though, ie. their league and cup finishes, right? And Pep/Klopp will try to play attacking football - unfortunately the ME seems to favour the playstyle of the portuguese Pulis.
  10. ME changes carry over to new saves anyway so you can start it if you like, even if it's just to complete the first transfer window and preseason.
  11. Roberto Firmino became unhappy after winning every trophy possible, because I chose to accept an insane bid of £55m for backup player Harry Wilson. Wilson had only 9 starts in the league that season. I find it completely unrealistic that a team leader will become unhappy after selling a fringe player for ridiculous money after winning 7 trophies. Save game uploaded from before Firmino becomes unhappy: "jul20.fm" To reproduce, sim to July 6th. Unfortunately I don't have a save from before Wilson is sold.
  12. Yeah it's "days trained in nation", but I'm at a loss here. Doesn't seem to be a way to search for it, which to me is just weird. I can't be the only one who'd want to search for that.
  13. Either I've been awake for too long or I'm going crazy here: How do you search in the pre-game editor for players homegrown in a certain nation? I was certain all I had to do was this: But Kevin Mbabu (just a random name to test with as I know he's homegrown in England) doesn't show up. The worst part is I'm certain that filter worked yesterday, but I guess I must be mistaken. What would the correct search be?
  14. That doesn't make any sense whatsoever. I lack ambition because I don't allow players to dictate my transfer policies? I lack ambition because I hold my ground when interacting with players? It's nonsensical. If anything, holding on to the players I want to keep is a sign of determination and emphasis on discipline. And like I said, Alisson's performance didn't drop at all.
