  1. Some great looking regens here. Jealous!
  2. Hi all,following on from the update today, my player pictures have disappeared but my megapack files remain in the same place. Please advise.TIA
  3. Good work on the thread @stevemc Season 1 Transfers out - Like most, I started the season with the hope of shifting the "dead wood". Matic, seemed to be the only player I could drum up any real interest for, out he went for 9 mil to Guanzhou. Rojo and Bailly leaving on loan deals to Wolves and Marseille respectively. Unfortunately, Lingard picked up an injury that ruled him out for the season, and a move away from the club. Mata & Jones were unwanted by myself...….and everyone else. Transfers in - With a purse bursting at the seams, I had high hopes of snapping up some English talent. With my scouts looking at Sancho, Chilwell, Maddison & Rice. In reality, I failed to lure the sought after youngsters, and settled for 1 transfer and 2 loan deals. In came - Leon Goretzka for 33 mil. My thought process here was that I wanted a solid, hard working BBM to partner Mr Pogba. In came James Rodriguez on loan for the season. A no brainer this one, A solid AM for little financial & contractual commitment. Eyes & hopes were on Eriksen in the following summer. My second loan deal - Federico Bernadeschi. With Lingard our for the year and Sancho not interested. Another loan deal seemed the sensible option, giving me the time to fulfil positions whilst waiting upon desired players. Formation & style of play - I wanted wide, attacking, decisive & exciting. Settling into a 4231 attack. I wanted my wing backs pushing up high, providing an outlet from central areas. BPCBs using the ball well, picking passes for my pacey attack. A BBM & AP in the centre providing energy and creativity. My wide players being set to IFL & IWR pushing into central areas to support my AF. Lastly my AM, linking it all together in the final third, providing goals. assists and all round technical wizardry. Season progression My season started better than Sir Alex could of imagined. 20 league games played & 19 won. Not bad that?! Over the next 6-8 games, my smooth, fast paced wheels, decided to, just. Fall off. Goals dried up, confidence got knocked, form.....nowhere to be found. Tweaks & changes ensued, and my cup competition journeys all burst like a worn tyre. Europa League, knocked out by Arsenal in the 2nd RK iirc. FA Cup, losing to Liverpool in a 4th round replay and the EFL losing early doors to the mighty Irons. Luckily, and without the pressures of cup and continental football, our league form picked up and the tweaks took shape. My AF changed to a DLF - A. My BBM changed to a DLP, IW-R to W-S & Various changes to my AM to AP & back to AM. And back came the Premier league champions status to Old Trafford. Finished with 94 pts, 6 pts above Liverpool in second. Standout players Bernadeschi - 40 apps and 21 goals. For a loan signing, he really bought in to what I was trying to achieve. Martial as my AF then into my DLF-A scored 27 in all comps in 43 apps. Linderlof - A rock for me at the back, and his balls being sprayed around the pitch were a delight. ooo er. Season 2 Transfers IN Transfers OUT Will try to update as I go through. Currently -
  4. Rashford being released on a free at the end of his contract 20/21. Still great stats, England international. Maybe United didn't want to meet his demands? Yeah maybe. He went to a mid table Stoke on 82k P/W. Awful.
  5. Not sure if this is the right place (feel free to move if incorrect). I'm having a journeyman career currently, and I've just taken over a recently relegated EPL club. I've joined them 11 games into the season. Two games In, I've had 3 players approach me about the lack of football they're currently getting. IMO the hidden stat of unhappiness due to lack of football should be lowered/scratched when a new manager arrives, (one mans Vieira is another mans Sean Davis). Aside from that, my main point is, one of these players had seemingly already had this conversation with the previous gaffer, who had promised a run of games. In my conversation with him, he's having a whinge due to me dropping the ball on not following through on our "previous" chat. Frustrating really as its causing slight divides in the changing room before I've even started my team analysis.
  6. Thanks for the info! A very inconvenient way to find it. Your post was hilarious BTW. @mbchuz
  7. During a game, I'm struggling to find the screen where you can check a players in game stats, i.e. passes and shots etc..... I can see the analysis but that only gives me the heat map. Cheers.
  8. I deleted Steam, reinstalled and it now appears to be working. Admin please close thread. Thanks.
  9. Upon trying to install (download paused upon reaching 100%) I'm receiving a Steam error stating "content file locked: c:\programfiles(x86)\steam\2\steamapps\common\footballmanager18\fm.exe" Help please.
  10. Hey @Felix Wilkie, yeah just in windowed it seems, full screen runs fine.
  11. Hi, as I launch Fm17 it opens in a windowed box, completely white; unable to close by 'Xing' the window. I've had a browse around and saw that deleting my preference folder would help. It did....to an extent, FM would load, but I cant have the interface windowed. It just goes back to white screen!! Also, I keep having to validate FM files in Steam otherwise it just doesn't load. Any help or advice? Cheers.
  12. I had a similar issue. Try going into steam, Fm17-properties-local files-verify integrity of game files.
  13. Have a look at Marcel Tisserand, signed him for 8.5m and he's stayed with me from a mid table EPL side to champions league winners, absolute rock.
  14. In the 5 games he's started, has he had many shots? SOT? Where are the shots being taken from?
