  1. I always buy on release but I never start a long term save until January/February. This year is no different.
  2. I understand the argument for the change, but I don't accept it. Exactly. Maybe next year the technical, mental and physical attributes will just be listed as poor, alright, good. That would be great, wouldn't it? 🤦‍♂️ Furthermore, how many managers, particularly at big clubs, are responsible for negotiating the signing of a player? Or the terms of a player's contract? It would be more realistic if we didn't get involved with that too, surely?
  3. I'm trying so hard to like the match day UI but it's driving me nuts. I feel like SI have taken a few steps forward with quite a few aspects of the game (notably the match engine) , but they have also taken a massive leap backwards with the match day UI. It's simply awful. I just don't understand why they had to change it so drastically.
  4. The last few years have followed the same pattern for me. Buy the full game on release, really into it for several weeks, maybe a few months, get 3 or 4 seasons into a save and then switch to Touch. It's pick-up-and-playability just means it fits in with my lifestyle more these days. The days of me being able to sink 30 or 40 hours a week into the full game are long gone. With Touch it just feels easier to grab 45 minutes here, maybe an hour or two there and still have fun.
  5. Do officials in lower leagues ever get offside calls wrong? Seems like all the marginal offsides are called correctly. Playing as Kettering in a friendly at Didcot. I wouldn't have thought VAR would be in use...
  6. 2D only for me. Much easier to see why my tactics are working, or as is often the case, not working. Also, the 3D animations still look too awkward for me to enjoy. The goals always look better in my own mind than they do in the 3D animation.
  7. 2D and extended. Not sure what to select for the second question... 🤔
  8. First season in Prem, I've seen an 8-5 and an 8-4. Both games AI v AI. Three quarters of a season isn't a big enough sample size for me to comment. I'll reserve judgement.
  9. I'm 41 and I really don't like it. That said, I feel like I'll reluctantly get used to it, but I'll never prefer it to the way it used to be.
  10. I don't like the match day UI, but after a dozen games or so.... I'm getting used to it. I do hope it gets tidied up a little before the 24th though.
  11. Back in the day... 6-8 hours, easy. And that was with a full time job. During a few brief periods of unemployment... 12-14 hours a day. These days... 2-4 hours on a weekday, a little more on a weekend if I'm lucky.
  12. I sold Naby Keita who wanted a £1.3m pay off to go to PSG. I negotiated it down to £1m.
  13. Initial thoughts.... Pretty good. Match engine seems to be a big upgrade on previous versions. The match UI will take some getting used to. I don't mind the heart icons instead of the percentages for fitness. Question... Can I turn the advertising boards off? I play in 2D, the boards moving and flashing is distracting and driving me slightly mad. 😒
  14. I set Divock Origi's value, listed him for transfer and set his loan status to 'unavailable for loan' and then got this crash dump. FM 2021 v21.0.0.1476964 (2020.11.12 19.38.31).dmp
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. Yeah I know it happens. But it seems to be happening way too often. F**k me, I guess.
  19. 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.
  20. My wife, work and a slight addiction to internet pornography.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
