  1. Community shield issue I'm currently season 2 and i am (Arsenal) plating City in the community shield. to my knowledge you can make 4 subs IRL but i have just made 5
  2. I always attend u23 fixtures. You used to be able to look at the u23 schedule and click the V to attend. now you can only attend by checking the competition fixtures then forwarding the date to the fixtures you want. makes it much longer and a chore, so i rarely bother now sadly.
  3. its done on a 1st come 1st served basis. the 3 europa league games will do til end of year. if FA cup home draw that will be 4, if not europa league will get 4th,5th. So it totally depends on qualification. I would personally go 5 europa 1 FA cup. Maybe devils advocate 4 europa and 2 FA cup?
  4. Arsenal season ticket states "3 fa cup tickets" this is incorrect as I believe its 6 cup games excluding Caraboa cup
  5. so these figures in your opinion are correct then? arsenal have bigger attendances, full stadiums, more prize money than the teams mentioned above but their wage budgets increase whilst Arsenal's goes down. in the real world would wage budgets increase with success or faiure?
  6. thanks for the tone. you're missing my point. winning things increases club finances. in order to win things you need players. players like to be paid. i have not spent billions on players and paid 300k p/w. ffp is not difficult for me to understand. in every incarnation of FM you could have a smaller transfer budget ad increase your allowed wages which is a kind of book balancing? i do not need the 90M transfer budget as i cannot afford to pay the wages. west Brom agreed to but Rob Holing for 5M but he rejected their contract offer of £200 p/w so other teams are inthe same boat. if this keeps up will the game eventually become unplayable unless you become a selling club? assuming ofcourse other teams can affor to pay wages. as you can see from the abovechart teams have money but no wagebudget unless they get players off their wage bill
  7. keep asking the board for an affiliate abroad to raise our profile but keep getting turned down. anyone else have this problem?
  8. Spurs 2M 39k (season 1 1M 867K = up 72K pw) 2M 89k 30M 13.15M Man U 4M 324k (season1 4M 847K =down 523K) 4M 360k 83M 28M Citeh 4M 168K (season 1 3M 653K = up 515K pw) 4M 535k 11.5M 163M Chelsea 3M 282K (season1 2M 964K = up 318K pw) 3M 642K 20M 48M Liverpool 2M 842K (season 1 2M 773K = up 71K pw) 3M 642K 58M 60M my point is 4 of the 5 teams had an increase and although i won the league and champs league semi finalists mine was reduced. also have 90M to spend but cannot afford wages. had to renew many contracts to stop players leaving ( Ozil, Sanchez and Bellarin the main 3)
  9. reduced budget all other tams (except city champs league) won nowt but got an increase so i'd expect an inrease with an operating profit of 60M+ have now 90M to spend but cany buy anyone as can only pay £200 pw
  10. I have a problem with my Arsenal finances after season 1. I started by having no transfers allowed. I had a wage budget of 2,982.000 pw but season 2 it dropped to 2.886.000 even after winning the prem my overall balance season 1 was 308.948,000 season 2 326,761,000 My profit season 1 was 64,874,000 why has my wage budget gone down? also my wage budget is quite small in relation to other big teams. Arsenal wage budget season 2 is 2M 886k (season 1 2M 982K = down 96K pw) spending 2M 923k Transfer budget 72M nett transfer 72M Spurs 2M 39k (season 1 1M 867K = up 72K pw) 2M 89k 30M 13.15M Man U 4M 324k (season1 4M 847K =down 523K) 4M 360k 83M 28M Citeh 4M 168K (season 1 3M 653K = up 515K pw) 4M 535k 11.5M 163M Chelsea 3M 282K (season1 2M 964K = up 318K pw) 3M 642K 20M 48M Liverpool 2M 842K (season 1 2M 773K = up 71K pw) 3M 642K 58M 60M any suggestions appreciated
  11. from many years of playing this i always make 3 tactics from scratch. they are the same tactics i use every incarnation but always recreate them rather than load them
  12. your 4-4-1-1? I cannot for love nor money get someone someone (anyone) working behind a striker. I have to use Sanchez as a tranquista up top on his own. what roles do your top 2 have please?
  13. Default Bad day at the office but won 2-0 away to WBA So away to West Brom which is always a tough place to go and manage to get an early goal, scored by Giroud 9'. I have a green + on Wilshere so as a precaution take him off ( 28') and bring on Walcott. 29' Walcott off injured ( torn hamstring out for 2-3 months) http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images...ewsinbox4.png/ Bring on Podolski. 49' Diaby (yes I know ) injured broken wrist! 4 weeks http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images...ewsinbox2.png/ 62' Gibbs already has a green + after twisting his knee (2-3 weeks inj) and according to the ref elbowed a player. I have viewed the incident and the WBA seems to come charging in and the ball is behind Gibbs on the touchline and the player runs behind him. Elbow red card apparently. I have appealed as "he's not that type of player" so expect a 4 match ban. Lastly Vermaalen ot for a couple of weeks damaged elbow. In summary: 3 pts http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images...ewsinbox7.png/ 4 players injured 4 game ban (prob) for red card http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images...ewsinbox6.png/ Tottenham away next!

  15. Thanks for all your responses and maybe I felt hard done by as the opposition seem to foul my players so much causing injuries. I looked at my stats against the bigger teams (Man united/city, spurs + chelsea and the amount of fouls are ridiculous. lots of fouls against but seems to be rotational fouling causing many fouls + quite a few yellows but rarely reds. Seems a bit strange but as I am Arsenal sounds about right!
  16. Here are the Premiership games so far. Again not a huge difference but lumps are being kicked out of my players. In certain games teams are into double figures with no cards but i can get more cards for a lot less tackles. Chelsea seem to be the biggest foulers against me with the fewest cards.

  17. I seem to have shot myself in the foot somewhat but it seems to me that the opposition seem to kick lumps out of my players. Have have put the stats for my Champions league games so far. In the early games I had tackling set to normal but as you can see in the later games When my tackling was set to "stay on feet" my fouls are quite low compared to the opposition. The AC Milan game was a rare occurrence where they were punished. If you look at the Real Madrid game they got a card every 11 fouls where mine was every 5.5. I will post my Premiership stats later. Champions League Group Stage Team Arsenal AC Milan H Fouls 12 19 Yellow 0 5 Red Team Arsenal H Braga Fouls 6 10 Yellow 1 1 Red Team Arsenal H Dinamo Fouls 12 13 Yellow 1 1 Red Team Arsenal Dinamo H Fouls 11 15 Yellow 1 3 Red Team Arsenal H AC Milan Fouls 3 17 Yellow 0 1 Red Team Arsenal Braga H Fouls 7 12 Yellow 0 1 Red 1St knockout rd 1 Team Arsenal Dynamo Kyiv H Fouls 11 17 Yellow 0 2 Red Team Arsenal H Dynamo Kyiv Fouls 2 15 Yellow 0 1 Red 2ND knockout rd 1 Team Arsenal H Real Madrid Fouls 6 22 Yellow 2 2 Red Totals 70 123 5 15
  18. Hi all. I will shortly be posting some stats about the opposition foul to card stats. I play as Arsenal and have instructions to "stay on feet". The opposition seem to average 20 ish fouls per game against me and get few cards. I average about 6 and get at least 1 yellow. I will post at the end of this season detailing fouls per card for me and the opposition and would welcome some feedback.
  19. I would like more set piece options. When set up instructions for defending corners I like to leave 2/3 players in attacking positions ready for a breakaway. I want to leave 1 player on the halfway line centrally and 1-2 players on the wings (halfway line). This will lead to a less congested penalty area as the opposition will have to leave at least 3 players back to mark them
