  1. I'd focus on a strong defence over a strong attack. The one time I managed to go a season unbeaten I think I only conceded about 10 goals.
  2. I've definitely seen so called "big teams" have a season as poor as Chelsea are having at the moment. Usually see it at least once a save at some point or other.
  3. That's really great to hear mate, I'm glad I could be of help!
  4. So I've finally reached promotion to the premier league, and soon after have got my first youth player. Unsurprisingly he's not very good and will have no chance of breaking into the first team... nice to finally get someone coming through the academy though! Still, I'm struggling to understand why it took so long for a player to come through, I've managed a fairly poor team all the way through, and even now I've reached the top level I'm still odds on favourite for relegation, and certainly nowhere near the squad quality or reputation of a team such as Manchester City. It's no longer a problem for me now of course but I would be interested to hear others' experiences of the youth setup, especially with lower league teams.
  5. Hahaha quality
  6. Thanks for your reply. I've currently got 34 players (including loaned out) in my first team squad, I believe the limit is 40? I have used the reserves in the past to allow for more players. Yeah I guess my squad often is larger than average but considering I've had this save for 4/5 seasons now it does seem odd to never have had a youth player come through. My facilities have upgraded as I've gone along and subsequent promotions have allowed me to get them to the "superb" level.
  7. Hi guys Playing fmh15 and I've created a team, yet I'm now 4 seasons in and have never had a youth intake. However this hasn't affected the whole database and players are still being created each season. Anyone have an idea as to why this may be happening? Cheers
  8. Nice idea though, i'd definitely be interested in the database were you able to get it up and running correctly.
  9. Precisely 9 mate, although it may struggle to run the Italian Serie D. I joke of course, it's very difficult to tell without you loading the game and seeing how it copes. If you're deciding which laptop to get then compare its specs to the recommended specs given by SI.
  10. Argh it's awful! Especially when players get sent off for diving twice... no excuses for that, always sell them!
  11. Yes you can wait another year, as long as he doesn't retire beforehand!
  12. Yeah my two Lb's are Gaya and J.Silva, I just keep rotating them. Both insane!!
  13. I disagree, my coach report says he "enjoys big matches". Maybe you're thinking of someone else?
  14. Could also be that the club couldn't free up the funds to complete the deal.
  15. Tbh I've got a large squad and field almost an entirely different 11 from the match before sometimes. I haven't really noticed that injuries have been much of a problem since I really improved my squad depth. Beforehand when players were playing regularly, sometimes with condition less than 95%, injuries were really an issue and I felt the same as many others on this thread. In general, I think injuries have been exaggerated slightly too much on this years' version, but squad rotation really helps!
