  1. It absolutely is relevant. You have absolutely no frame of reference if it's realistic or not, because you simply can't replay real life. People always make the same basic error every time this topic comes up. "It's the team playing '63' different games". No, they're playing the exact same game 63 times. A crucial difference. I'm surprised no-one's touched on the real issue here, however. Why on earth would you ever replay the same match 63 times? That's almost two seasons worth of matches to play. It takes me weeks to finish just one season!!
  2. In Serie A this season, Napoli are 2nd with a goal difference of +18 at home, and +3 away. The top 6 sides in Italy have lost a combined total of 8 games at home so far this season. with Juventus and Napoli unbeaten and Inter & Roma having lost just one each. AC Milan sit in 6th place having won just two of their nine away games.
  3. It's not really that mysterious. Familiarity of surroundings, no travelling, and the majority of the crowd behind you are all factors that go into this.
  4. When you say you deleted them, did you do this in-match or during the week? Any in-match changes don't save universally. Also, check your player instructions, have you got players set up to swap roles/positions during a game? Is your tactic downloaded from the internet? Something is causing this, it won't be happening by itself. Maybe upload your save somewhere and let the community take a look at it.
  5. That's my view on it, personally I'd hate a save like that. One of the reasons I never take over a top team straight away. It's a top effort, mind, but not something I'd enjoy.
  6. And there you have it. Every save is different. Remember, that AI controlled clubs will only shortlist a player if he falls within their available budget (whereas the human manager can shortlist anyone, anytime), so it might be in your save that the clubs who would realistically buy that player have used up their transfer budget for that transfer window. I'm speculating of course, but it's probably a credible scenario given that you've said the player has moved for much more in another save.
  7. How dynamic the transfer market is can be down to the ratio of leagues loaded/players loaded you have. If you get that right, then it's usually fine.
  8. I'd agree with this. Going Liverpool in this year's game is the equivalent of playing the 'easy' mode in the old school arcade games.
  9. What I take from this picture is it's clearly only your team having so many goalless draws, so you know...
  10. Only you could have come up with this. I'm convinced you make half of this up.
  11. I must have been really offended at myself all through FM18's lifecycle then.
  12. I've seen plenty games with only three shots (or even less!) by half time. Also, that game tonight was not really typical of the normal number of shots on goal in an opening 45 minute period. But by all means use one half of real life football to beat FM with.
