    City still rubbish.

    Doesn't sound worthy of a sarcastic "Well done" at all. Only 11 games in. Chelsea and Liverpool are obviously not bad teams. Man City is not gonna auto-win every season just because they easily won last year.
  2. I love it so far. We were leaking goals from set pieces so I put the players on a two week defensive set pieces training and I noticed obvious improvements. Gave me a hunger to continue delve into training.
  3. Penalties seems to have gone from below 50% conversion rate to 100% conversion rate. The amount of penalties seems high as well. 8 penalties against us in 14 games. 100% scored. 3 for us, all scored.
  4. Yup, it's been confirmed that some leagues are worse than others. EPL being one of the worst as far as I can tell
  5. I'd disagree with you there. I'm 1,5 season in and I still haven't had a full competitive game without at least one red injury substitution. It's very common with 2-3 injuries per match.

    Stroppy Youth Players

    I even get bad responses when I praise my youth players. One was noted as having 10.0 in training rating two reports in a row. I made the mistake of praising him both times, the second resulting in a youth player rolling his eyes and getting annoyed. Can't remember the exact phrase thats used but it was along the lines of "Not this again, why do you keep talking to me?". Pretty sure a u18 player for Liverpool FC who get's to train with the First Team a few weeks during pre-season wouldn't mind getting praise two weeks in a row? In general the praise aspect is a bit week, I more often get annoyed players from praise than from criticism
  7. Got the exact same message a few minutes ago. Might start to look for jobs outside of the UK :P I think this is a pretty hard Brexit.
  8. First competitive game so very little to go on. But this game (screenshot) worries me a bit. First of all, Gunn being the worst player on the pitch after an absolute bombardment from us whilst Alisson who let almost everything in have pretty good rating. None of the CCCs where goals and the goals from Southampton were very weak shots that any goalie should easily deal with. Secondly, a bit worried with the ratings in general regarding my defenders, Southampton had pretty much nothing all game and yet every time they even strolled into our half the defenders just let them pass. (I'm playing Control Possession with a few role tweaks). My defenders should have had much much lower rating because Gomez and Trent were both responsible for 2 of their goals. Third, not related to the screenshot below, but during pre-season we got 6 penalties in 7 games and missed 4 of them. Both stats a bit worrying. I love the new interface. Love tactics and training so far. All in all it's a very good feeling. Anyway, first competitive game, so might get better but these are just my first impressions.
  9. Nothing installs automatically on Steam as far as I know.
  10. Let's just agree to disagree then. Cheerio.
  11. And rules might be revoked. Nothing is certain, but it doesn't get more official than a public vote.
  12. Will try that when I get home! I've felt, in general, slightly disappointed after the upgrade from an i5-6700K to this processor as I've noticed zero difference in anything.
  13. Seriously? I got an i7-8700K 3.60GHz and I struggle above 20 leagues. How much RAM do you have?

    Hi Mike1. It's multiplayer, you can check on Steam if you want to. Saw you meant FMT. Sorry, not sure about that.
  15. Brexit was officially voted on. Just not the specific outcome. But let's not start this debate again...

    FM 19 needs to hurry up.

    Thats too much to hope for. Thats the kind of hope that break peoples heart!

    FM 19 needs to hurry up.

    Oh thats desperate, Robin Hobb is my least favorite fantasy writer ever! :P But I'm in a similar problem, not sure what to do with myself until the beta.
  18. Yeah, I've actually done that once! My problem is that I play 100+ during the course of a FM-release, so keeping stats between saves is my big issue
  19. Penalties have been one of the biggest issues for me in FM18, too bad I'm awful at collecting the stats but based on 1300 hours played I am convinced that for me and the teams I meet the conversion rate has been far below 50%. Current season I'm playing and we have had 5 penalties against us, 1 has been a goal. We have had 4 penalties for us, 0 goals. But most seem to have no issues with penalties so me and OP have to accept we just got bad luck! Anyway, my points is, that despite this extreme annoyance (I hate getting penalties now as it's rarely a goal and a miss take a striker down from 6,7 to 6,2 in a heartbeat) I don't think the ME is broken because of it.
  20. I agree with Dagenham_Dave here, so we are at least two people who prefer it this way.
  21. The more I look at those screenshots the better it gets. Really liking it so far! Since a lot of the UI is a specific shade of purple maybe it will be possible to chose the color ourself? Might be a feature not shown yet. Just pick a color from a palette instead of being forced to the clubs colors as in current game. That way everyone is happy.
  22. Looks new since it's Attacking whilst the DF only have Defensive or Support. NCB also new?
  23. If it's impossible to register 15 players that follow those rules, maybe they automatically include players or the game would simply crash?
