  1. There is much to be done in this area thats for sure. I've had many similar situations but the last time I had one of my key players wanting to leave in order to earn more money I asked him what kind of sum we were talking about. His answer is that he doesn't believe the club can afford the new contract and then the conversation is over and I can't even discuss the terms of a contract. I had the budget to offer him more than 250K a week (he was currently on 70K), it's strange that players think they are an accountant all of a sudden. It feels like a guessing game, which option will give me a positive response? It's often not even logical. A player wanting to move because he wants higher salary should reasonably be open to discussing a new contract.
  2. Player value changes in different leagues

    The league got more money than it's reputation deserve, but thats part of the plan. I want the league to build up it's rep over time and we have gone up a bunch of positions over 3 seasons but the prices and values remain the same. The most expensive sell was Alexander Isak for 30 million pounds, the rest have been in the low single digits.
  3. Missed Pens

    I have similar issues some season whilst other seasons (like my current) we haven't missed a single one (6/6). But the season before that we only converted 3/9 penalties. So the ratio might be correct over time, it's just weird when some seasons are extremes in either direction. 2 missed penalties in a row and I change the pk-taker.
  4. Player value changes in different leagues

    I guess I will have to do it that way then!
  5. Player value changes in different leagues

    Not sure I understand. My question is not whether I can change the value myself, I know I can in the pre-game editor. The question is if this is something that change organically within the game over time or if it will remain on the same levels forever?
  6. Hola, I've recently started my last save for FM17, which according to tradition is a modified database where Sweden plays their games during the winter, got more money and more teams in the top leagues. One thing that I did not change is the average value for players, which mean Swedish team pays a lot and sells for peanuts. Example: Malmö FF bought Josh Onomah from Tottenham for £30m the second season. The value of the player then quickly decreased from around 15m-ish to 1,2m the third season and Wolfsburg had no problem picking him up for peanuts (1,4m). I know I can change this in the pre-editor and it's not a problem, but what I want to know is if this changes over time as Swedish teams continue to buy good talent and hopefully sell a player for decent money? Will the value increase or will the Swedish league forever have to deal with buying high and selling extremely low?
  7. Nvm, solved it. Steam had installed it on a different partition than the game.
  8. Hi, Tried to start the pre-game editor for the first time and I only recieve this error message: : No valid language found or set, cannot continue. I reinstalled the editor and same issue persists. I'm playing on Windows 10 64x version.
  9. Thanks for your input! I did as summatsupeer suggested. I will try and change the attacking roles as well. The RPM and CWB(S) are two worldclass players and I think that maybe they should be capable enough to use those roles but I will keep that in mind, jorgvandervloed!
  10. Had a strange moment in a game against OGC Nice recently. Their goalkeeper got a sprained wrist in the first 2 minutes without me even having a single shot on goal. That in itself is strange but the goalie stayed on for the full 90 minutes doing some insane saves with his hands. Is it possible to stay on with a sprained wrist as a goalie? Checking his history he was out for 8 days after that game.
  11. I will test a few combinations, starting with the st-co-st!
  12. I'd say it's a mix regarding corners, mostly some serious mistakes from one of my CBs and also two screamers thats just lucky. I've started tweaking set pieces. Things have started to brighten, it's still not good enough and I'm currently outside top 5. The poor form has been obvious in the very easy chances that they simply shoot over the goal or straight at the keeper. I've had 3 missed penalties out of 3 possible as well and thats not helping. I will try to grind it out, I also tried to holiday one game using my tactics just to see if my assistant could do wonders and it was the first clear win by 4-0 so it's probably connected to my team talks and the players not being motivated by me.
  13. I've added about 4 new players, one whom instantly took a place in the starting 11. Conceded 5 from corners which is strange since I have the tallest team in the league and all of my CDs are 14+ heading and jumping. Through balls 4 and the rest a mix. Two CDs have been doing quite a few mistakes leading to goals and I've rotated them as best as I can with this squad. 4 of my forwards are in awful form, the only one still scoring is Lacazette. The last 6 games have been: 2-2 0-2 2-2 1-1 1-2 1-1 So, a lot of draws. The opposition has scored the first goal in 5/6 games and we have been chasing for most of them.
  14. After a pretty good first season at Lyon where we ended runner-up, won the french cup and a final in the euro league I have been pleased with my tactics. Unfortunately teams are starting to respect us now, meaning the start of the second season have been a catastrophe. What can I do to tweak this in order to have a better chance against much much worse teams? Mentality: Control (I've played the most recent games on counter just to try and stop those awful gambling passes to a player sandwiched between 3 defenders that never succeeds) Team shape: Flexible TIs: Shorter passing, pass into space, play out of defence, work ball into box, close down more, stay on feet Formation: --------------GK(De)---------------- ----CD(De)-CD(St)-CD(De)----- CWB(Su)----------------CWB(At) ---------RPM(Su)-CM(De)-------- ----------------SS(At)---------------- -----------CF(Su)-DLF(At)--------- The first season we had an excellent attacking and defensive record with 81 goals for and only 28 against. This season we are leaking goals everywhere. Not sure what to try from here, so thankful for any suggestions!
