  1. Hi, Not sure if this is the correct area but I'm playing as Boston United and signed Hussein Mohammed, a Somalian striker, on a free. He was at Crystal Palace since the 2012/13 season and the required 1825 days in England. His status currently reads "awaiting paperwork" but it has said that for months since I originally signed him in September. It is now March and it hasn't changed. I've uploaded a save game called Boston.fm to the FTP. I recommend holidaying a few months to see if anything happens. Below is a screenshot of the player earlier in the year.
  2. Does that look like a bug? Shouldn't he be able to get a work permit? It just says awaiting paperwork for ages.
  3. FM Careers Forum Discussion

    Is it a possible bug that a player who has spent his whole career in England has had "awaiting paperwork" for 6 month whilst waiting for a work permit? Bought him and have been unable to use him.
  4. What level do you reckon you might get "stuck", there's always one level.
  5. So, Champions League in 5 years?
  6. dafuge's FM18 challenge

    Thanks, had a look and someone uploaded a set of saves which had one of them on there. It had UK and Ireland all playable but I'll de-activate the other leagues.
  7. dafuge's FM18 challenge

    So, I started a game as Grays two divisions below the Conference regionals. As that wouldn't count in this challenge I'm debating whether to start anew save for this or just go with Grays and not post updates here but in the Careers Forum instead. I would like to do this challenge as written but, sadly,all the Essex teams that could get promoted, bar Billericay, got relegated. Unless there is a Thurrock save. Or Harlow or Brightlingsea
  8. Really don't get it this year. No matter what tactic I seem to have, I lose and don't win. We just let in loads of goals and generate little despite having better squads than most others. I feel like giving up..
  9. These are the three tactics I have set. Ignore the players in them apart from the 4-3-3, I'd have players that fit there.
  10. I'm entering my fourth season as Gloucester and I need some tips and advice tactically. What type of tactic should best work in the Vanarama National North/South? What play styles are more likely to work? Should I include many team instructions? I've set up three tactics for use at the moment. A 4-4-2, a 4-3-3 and a 4-2-3-1. I've never tried a 4-3-3 before and it involves 3 strikers with two on DLF and one TM. To help with the three central midfielders no doubt. Would these type of tactics work at this level?
  11. [FM18] Making Swansea great again?

    That's a really interesting update, does it use forced results to get the same table? Will be following this
  12. I've played 5 league games and a cup game under the tactic so far, scoring 10 goals and conceding 5. The results were 4-0 v Margate, 1-1 v Bromley, 3-0 v Hayes in the Cup, 2-0 v Folkestone, 0-0 vs Billericay and 0-3 vs Oxford City. Over that period we generated 49 shots with 27 on target and a possession average of 46.5% whilst allowing 79 shots with 30 on target and a possession average of 53.5%. Two games against Billericay and Oxford make up a good 30 shots against but something that needs to be monitored. I'm thinking perhaps making a tweak of when the attacking player should go for, only with the ball, stay back otherwise. Will do another 5 games and monitor it more. The following 5 games after that we struggled to score and it looks like I need to try and find a balance between the two.
  13. Thanks, I'll give that a try. I've got 5 favourable fixtures coming up so hopefully, get some results that I then tweak with there.
  14. Okay, so, I've started a new season and abandoned the WBL tactic I had for the below. I have one, the 4-4-2 for even games, the 4-2-4 for games I would expect to win at home and the 4-1-2-2-1 for games away that I would expect to lose. I'm thinking that these tactics should be more secure and reduce the goals conceded. Ignore the players out of position on two, I would have someone in position there.
