    Rob. 33. Posh fan. FM fan. Been playing this game since the red box domark days with the crazy old geezer on the box cover yo! Don't get time to play as much as I used to, but can still do a 12-16 hour session when the real world doesn't get in the way.

  1. Fired the game up last night for the first time since early December. I've been awarded 9 penalties in my first 8 games. Scored them all. Anyone else experiencing anything similar? Maybe a freak occurance, I appreciate 8 games is a small sample size.
  2. The layout of the tactics screen on my tablet is awful. Hard to explain but I can't pick my team while having the expanded view of the formation. If I minimise the view of the formation I can't actually see the formation. Really frustrating.
  3. It works on mine. 3d isn't great which surprised me as the specs of the tablet would suggest it could handle it, the near touchline glitches out and flashes. Not a big deal for me as I play in 2d.
  4. Yeah I know it happens. But it seems to be happening way too often. F**k me, I guess.
  5. I wouldn't really want to spend 8 hours a day picking up dog sh*t with my teeth. But for the right money? Hmmm.
  6. My wife, work and a slight addiction to internet pornography.
  7. I've always said the game isn't truly ready to play (and for me... worth buying) until January. I'm not complaining, I've always felt this way and still don't follow my own advice. I just can't resist a shiny new version of Football Manager. I'm starting a new non league save tonight. I'll plough on and see how it goes. Plenty of previous versions of the game in my steam library to keep me occupied until January if necessary.
  8. I'm having the exact same problem this year. Started my usual 'big team beta save' three times, Man United, Barcelona, Chelsea. Started one as Peterborough and one as Kings Lynn. I'll probably just mess around on the Peterborough one for now and start my first real long term save on release day. I'm wanting to experience lower league management outside of England. Or maybe a top flight team in Mexico or Colombia. Inter Miami also appeals, purely for the aspect of having to start from scratch. If only I could get my head around MLS, the transfer system in particular.
  9. I rarely talk to players individually like that , the potential morale boost usually isn't worth the risk of the hassle that can come with a negative reaction.
  10. Ricky Jade-Jones of Peterborough United is black, not white. Marcus Maddison's pace and acceleration ratings are off. 7 pace? 9 acceleration? I know it's already been mentioned and rejected but those stats need bumping up a couple of points in my opinion (Posh season ticket holder for nearly 20 years).
  11. Having players that get the crowd going, try tricks, dribble more, stuff like that might help too? We'd all rather watch Zlatan or Neymar than Ashley Barnes or Danny Drinkwater, right?
  12. In principle I like the idea of an MLS save, in particular with one of the expansion teams. I tried it a few years ago but the transfer system was a turn off for me, just couldn't get into it. But if you can get past that, I reckon it could be fun. I've done the English leagues to death, same for Spain and Italy. For me it helps if I have a connection to the team/place, no matter how small. I had a weekend in Venice a few years ago, amazing place. Got home and started a Venezia save, on FM15 I think. I was at Camp Nou last weekend, got home and started a Barca beta save. I've managed Brackley, Cheltenham, Worcester and of course Peterborough, just because these are places I have lived. I think this year my first long term save will be in Mexico, maybe Argentina or Brazil. Football Manager has never once taken me to that side of the world. I'll load up as many leagues as I realistically can, start over there and just see where the game takes me. My most memorable saves have always been my 'sleeping giant' saves. Leeds, Forest, Newcastle and Napoli. There are loads of them out there in Europe that will offer the right level of difficulty. A solid fan base, a half decent stadium, decent youth set up and some history... find one and away you go.
  13. I pretty much always play on 2D. Being able to see player positioning and the way my tactics are working (or not working as is often the case) is much easier in 2D. I tried out 3D following the latest patch, to my surprise my crappy laptop handled it well on medium setting. Not sure I'll be converted to 3D just yet though, it just looks too 'cartoonish' . With 2D you use your imagination more, and all goals seen with a combination of 2D and your imagination are better than 3D... for me anyway.
  14. Early impression of the latest update/patch... Big thumbs up. The issues with match engine seem to have been ironed out. I did only manage to play three matches on my Barcelona save last night, but the signs are promising! Also, even my poverty spec laptop is running 3D at medium quality nice and smooth. Might turn the graphics up a notch and see how she goes!
