    Formerly known on this board as trigz quite a few years back. Incurable FM addict although considerably more restrained now than in my younger years. I have played every single edition of CM/FM. Imagine that, kids!

About Me

  • About Me
    Oslo, Norway
  1. Arne Erlandsen (Lillestrøm SK coach) was not born in Ullensaker, but at Kløfta.
  2. I just finished my first season with Lillestrøm, and it says here the squad is due back for pre-season on 16 January. As I'm friends with a handful of the current LSK players, I can confirm they always - always - begin pre-season on the first working day following New Year's Eve, so around the 3rd.
  3. Sigurður Ragnar Eyjólfsson (Lillestrøm SK) was the assistant coach to former manager Runar Kristinsson, but his contract has since been terminated. Arild Sundgot is the interim assistant manager under Arne Erlandsen, also in temporary charge.
  4. He was the assistant coach to former manager Runar Kristinsson, but his contract has since been terminated. Kristinsson, incidentally, just took over Lokeren in Belgium (good luck to them - he's useless):
  5. Yes, it would be a big, big step forward for SI in terms of immersion. I suppose all we can do is convince Miles and the boys it should happen.
  6. That's true (I don't, by the way).
  7. The only solution is if enough people tell SI about it, I suppose. It can't possibly be that big of a rewrite.
  8. I've petitioned Miles about this for a full year and cannot see why SI won't implement this. It would enhance the match experience greatly.
  9. Nope, doesn't look like it. It's a shame. Imagine what x million FM nerds would do if the stadia were moddable (see Cities: Skylines). It's the natural next step.
  10. Nice would be interesting, since Balotelli almost certainly will be as overrated as usual.
  11. Has anyone mentioned the absolute need to be able to filter out retiring players from the player search yet? Make it happen, SI, it's a no brainer. Other than that, my suggestions are: -Take the squad on an international break holiday to eg. Dubai or somewhere. -Please for God's sake bring back the old tactic screen, the new one looks awful ...and that's all I can think of at the moment.
  12. I give you a thousand thumbs up for dedication and presentation. This is beautiful!
  13. -Ability to instruct players to target a certain opponent, both by playing rough and/or winding him up. This happens in real life, of course. -Players should be able to be instructed to exploit certain areas in the opposition half in terms of where they make runs or send the ball. BUT! After playing Cities: Skylines to death over the last month though, the time is surely nigh for FM to make some graphical aspects of the game moddable: Include a stadium building tool and give people the opportunity to design more true to life models of the authentic stadia that the teams in the game uses. I am absolutely sure this would create huge buzz and interest. One of the most gratifying aspects to Cities:Skylines is precisely that the ability to mod the game tickles the creative imagination of so many people, and it will give the game a much bigger lifespan as a result. It's a natural next step for Football Manager too. I would absolutely love designing Åråsen stadion in excruciating detail and share it for fellow gamers to use, and so would so many others, too. Just do it, SI!
  14. Arsenal was taken over in my game as well, one stingy chairman replaced by another of the same ilk. Does this happen to everyone?
  15. Yep, that's what I use him as, he's been very consistent for me. I'm in September 2019 myself, took over Arsenal after the second season. No luck in the league so far, Chelsea are dominating, but won the Champions League in my first season, plus one FA Cup and the World Club Championships. The board has been remarkably patient, I expected being sacked after finishing 6th but somehow survived.
