  1. A private jet just landed at Heathrow, coincidence? I think not!
  2. I'm not saying this is necessary the case, but the post regarding Phil Jones and PSG might easily be "enhanced" with an in-game editor. It might very well be the real deal, but it could also be easily faked by pushing all his stats to great levels during play and then take them back down for a screenshot. I'm just naturally suspicious I guess
  3. Random fun fact: where I live the female football team is the most watched sports team in the city. Granted, there only live around 45K here and their stadium only fits about 2.5K people. But still, it's very popular locally I would love womens football in FM at some point.
  4. Fair enough, I just find it strange I don't play or do things I find terrible.
  5. But that doesn't explain why people play something they don't enjoy? Or is it such an addiction that a (in their minds) horrible time wasting product is better than no product?
  6. I see a lot of posts about people playing the game for years despite it being "terrible" and "horrible" and "not worth it" and so on. This is very odd to me, I really don't understand it. Why do you keep on playing something that you continously seem to dislike? I get if you try it and be like "ooh, this was not for me" but to then put another 100+ hours into it is beyond me. Now, I'm not saying you are doing something wrong. I just don't understand it. I just refunded a title I've been playing for years because I didn't think their new product was good enough. So I spent a total of 2 ho
  7. Running costs. Let's say 2021 will be their only income source for two years because they want to release 2023 next and skip 2022. The sales of 2021 have to be sufficient to cover their running costs for a full extra year. If we assume their staff is scaled to their income every year this would probably mean a lot of staff would have to be let go. This is of course broad generalizations based on very little information regarding how they operate and what their profit margins are, where that profit is invested and so on. But this would be a reason that development time doesn't increa
  8. Are CCCs gone forever now? If so thats all I need to pre-order!
  9. Thank you everyone for the input. I'm starting work on my compactness immediately, trying to start with by moving up my D-line and removing the counter-press. I've also removed the RPM/DLP-combo for a AP/DM-combo. Good insights and hopefully I will be translate it into a better tactic
  10. Will try some other role for my striker! Actually not sure why I have a DLP in the DM-strata. Think it's just something I've overlooked. He is going back to DM. Thanks for the input!
  11. Hey! I've been climbing quickly with Port Vale (unrealistically so of course) but now we are getting stuck in the Championship and I mainly feel it's because we are awful at finishing whilst we at the same time let almost all CCCs against us. We are leaders in Shots on target ratio at 63% but we are stuck in 21st place on conversion rate. We have in the last 50 domestic league games created 41 CCCs but only scored 26 while on the other end teams have created 28 against us and scored 21. Goalkeeper might be an issue here. Tactical-wise, how can I improve?
  12. There is a screen where you can see promises and if they are green (fulfilled) or not. That screen also shows the time period. So even if he is happy with his playing time he needs to remain happy until that time is up. But I can't remember from the top of my head where that screen can be found. Maybe the manager profile?
  13. Well, considering how goalkeepers almost never get a rating above 7 in this game he is a superstar! My goalkeepers usually end up around 6.66 for a season. Everything above 6.7 is a superb performance it seems.
  14. Yeah, I've started to notice that lately. I've switched the IF to Support and hope it will do some good. No similar situations yet so can't really say if it will help this particular problem. Fair enough! I'm tweaking it right now, added lower tempo which seems to improve the team overall. Hopefully it will allow them to do better in similar situations as well.
  15. Hehe, the one who is completely free is actually the BBM and the AF got brutalized by opposition player and just got up on his legs there. Thats why he is so far behind. I think the situation arose from a def corner. Hutchinson have had a few incidents since this match where his first solution is a shot, so I will think about your suggestions and try a few to see if something helps!
  16. I've had a few of these situations but this one was pretty extreme. Hutchinson had been running unopposed for several metres before reaching this position. Instead of passing he shot straight into the defender a millisecond after this image was taken. What decides this? He is an below average player for League One. But I see this in all competitions no matter the level and I almost never see the pass instead of the shot. So my question is really, when should I expect a player to do the right thing here and how can I improve the chances of that happening? Is my player simply too
  17. Yeah, I wasn't sure if it deserved it's own thread or not, thanks! Any chance you could pm me the post so I don't have to rewrite it? :P I'm lazy like that
  18. Hello! I took over Ross County in december last year and everything looked alright. Didn't think so much about the fixture list. This year however I think something has broken. This is the fixture list: As you can see there is a break in the Premiership between 24th of October until the 26th of December. Then we go nuts in January and Feb with 18 games in total in those two months. All I can find about the Premiership is that there usually is a break between 30th of December to 17th of January. So this is surely not right? I don't have a custom database loaded in this save
  19. I've given up, this is what Trump would sound like if he played FM.
  20. So what you are saying is that the game/AI is against you because you are a human player and you have a constant disadvantage and yet you are the most reputable club in the world. Who did that? The AI?
  21. I know he isn't lying nor do I think you are lying but you are frustrated which is common. But don't take it out on people calling them liars.
