  1. On number 2; you're doing all you can. And it depends what you're looking for? Develop and sell for profit or future 1st teamers? I'd ignore the 1-5 stars for starters. Players can change/develop surprisingly well. Basic good core attributes for a role your first team uses is good enough and especially good mental stats. How often do you think a club with the best youth set up in the world produce a player with real decent potential for their 1st team who will go on that path successfully? I doubt even one a year? That gem might be one in every 3-4 years worth of academy graduates? That's the way I look at it anyway, most year's should be 'hmm bang average'. The gem future wonderkids a rarity.
  2. I'm loving FM20. I'd not take social media or this forum as that reliable a barometer. The few mates I have that play the game aren't even aware this place exists and definitely don't watch YouTube video's about the game.
  3. Where VAR falls down on FM is that it's only used for penalty shouts or goals scored. If for the former it will always be a penalty, if the latter always disallowed so makes it pretty pointless. The sense of 'wait and see, was it or wasn't it?' is just not there.
  4. Where in what Neil said do you read anything like that? Because I don't. It's weird how perceptions are different, not unlike perceptions of the ME which is fine for me. Not perfect but fine enough. I've had a lot of playtime and fun on this version, but get that there's a swell of those who haven't here. What you've written seems far too harsh to me Welshace. It's only a game at the end of the day. We all want the best or a better game, but some speak like SI have driven the SI bus over their cat and forgot to apologise.
  5. I've suffered from the "promoted too early/soon" curse if you can call it that. I can't remember a 0-7 defeat but had a season in the Premier League with, at best, a squad of decent or average league one players. It got to the point where a 0-1 defeat I was more than happy with! 0-4's, 0-5's, and anything-6 were the norm. It was brutal right up to the point I was sacked in January.
  6. Lingard at United has sored 5 goals in the last 8 matches on season 1 in my current save. Now that is unrealistic. I never got a screenshot and have now binned the save (I know, I know, believe me or not ) but on one of my early saves AI controlled Liverpool had only dropped 2 points after 22 games in the first season. The dropped points? A 1-1 draw at Old Trafford which gave me a little smile at the time as mirroring real life you couldn't get much closer.
  7. It does seem to drop all too often or more than it previously did. I don't buy a player with less than 15 determination (I don't even see them; search filters set....on top of 10 for teamwork and work rate ) so the majority of my squad reflect that after 4-5 seasons, but it still seems to drop to the lower ends too often.
  8. That's it for me also and I've played every year.
  9. Unsung heroes. Wijnaldum at Liverpool irl springs to mind? Vital cog that lets the sexy rest of them get the plaudits.
  10. Seems solid to me post-update as well. Conceding goals heavily, but most of (no, all!!) my defenders need their P45's given via returning to the Championship/League One sooner rather than later so would expect goals to be going in against me in the Premier League.
  11. This update seems to show a better variety of goals, and still playing as my team should. Not that I was that hacked off with ME pre-update, but hey.
  12. Following this thread can get you in to a spiral of negativity and probably the vast majority of players don't see the negatives as bad as some do here and don't post here. I am enjoying this version, but feedback such as this gets drowned out here. There's only so many times you can shout you enjoy the version. Is it perfect? No, not to me, but it's more than good enough. There can always be improvements and maybe SI could have done better this version on release (annual releases aren't that groundbreaking). I am using a tactic loosely based on Mr U Rosler's (find it in the tactics forum here) which suits how I like my teams to play and I'm not really seeing the ME problems as bad as some might be.
  13. I had them too. "Match highest earner" in contracts for 4-5 players while I build, then (forget) and sign a worldie on 150k per week.
  14. ...then sack the DoF. I don't understand why people use the AI to negotiate anything for your team.
