  1. Thanks Champmanlegend for coming back to me! I understand normally to take them with a pinch of salt, but I have never seen this comment before, and usually they are quite generic and repetitive, so I therefore wondered whether, as it was rare to perhaps, take more notice of it
  2. Hi All I just wondered if anyone had come across similar messages via the social feed, as I have just done. Basically agreed a deal for free agent Zanzala (previously of Derby) for my club Chelmsford in 2nd season in the Conference South. (looked very promising and high potential etc) Interestingly on social media I have seen comments from fans such as "Baller" and "Definitely PA of 200".. not seen this before, anyone else? If it's rare, are those kind of comments, to suggest, I am on to something here and about to buy an absolute quality player for the future?
  3. Hi all has it been confirmed if there will be a lower resolution version released?
  4. Hi thanks I did see that but what does that apply to? What does the number reflect? Using the example of Attacking = 4, 4 what? attack duties, defend or support Ideally it would be good to see a split such as the below: Attacking Mentality - 4 defend Duties, 4 Support Duties, 3 Attack Duties but for each mentality
  5. In FM17 I have noticed the pre-match advice stating that when using a standard mentality etc, I should look to increase/decrease the amount of the Defend/Support/Attack duties, but I just wondered has anyone got a split of those recommendations per mentality. I have tried searching the forums and internet/articles, would be very helpful Thanks
  6. I wondered what peoples opinions/experiences are, does this general rule, apply at lower levels - Conference South for example? I have heard advice for that lower level, to be keep a structured/highly structured approach, but if not using specialist roles, that would mean a more fluid approach if you follow wwfan's advice? Thanks for any input
  7. At that level technical attributes are largely irrelevant as so poor, concentrate on work rate, determination and physical attributes
  8. My main bit of advice would be to keep things very simple, minimal team instructions and don't try to ask your team to do something, they are not capable of.
  9. Guys if you miss FM Live, try the client based game 90 Minute Fever... closest I have come across to fm live enjoy
  10. Thanks very much for the options and recommendations Welshace if I did go up to a 14" what's the better options out there?
  11. Hi Guys, baby on the way and looking at a cheaper option than the macbook air, which I plan on selling. Ideally something very portable 13" max (as i currently have the smallest macbook air) Its primary use will be for Football Manager and I would like something that can deal with 3D easily and dealing with many leagues/nations simultaneously, whilst browsing the net and dealing with spreadsheets Was thinking of something around £750.00 Would appreciate and be interested in any advice or help
  12. Hi All I wonder if anyone could offer any advice with an issue I am having since the release of the latest patch. I am using the default skin, with the Match In Between Highlights Mod.... but since the update the Match In between highlights are all in white text, bust most irratatingly without a dark panel surrounding them, so can hardly read/notice them. Could anyone help in supporting me get it back to normal, as it would be much appreciated
  13. Thanks Dr Hook and everyone for the feedback. Looking at the feedback appears it comes down to two things, or a combination of the two: 1) My Tactical Approach 2) Starting Managerial Experience and Lack of Qualifications - Causing a Morale spiral when on a losing run, which means I should play tighter to grab a draw etc and then reverse that run and in turn morale (Again then see Issue 1) Looking at my approach over the last two versions of the game, when managing lower league, I have always had multiple Team Instructions (six plus), I think at lower level perhaps this is too complicated and needs simplifying and reducing the amount of Team Instructions. With that in mind, I think I am going to re-read wwfan guide and roles and duties, then strip the Team Instructions right down also.
  14. My Teamtalk selection 80% + of the time secures me positive (green) reactions, so I don't believe it to be that. Unless even positive reactions can be bad if your motivation managerial stat, is very low, like mine?
  15. No worries hunter appreciate your honesty, very demoralized but there's a challenge
  16. Hi All I consider myself an experienced football manager player, but the last two versions I have struggled immensely Starting in the conference south on both versions with Sunday league experience and no coaching qualifications, I have either been sacked or had to resign to prevent the inevitable. I seem to have started well on both versions in my careers but then after a month or two go on a run of games, around 10 plus without a win, low morale etc Other than that the tactics where I would be taking to the tactic forums for, is there some fundamental approach I am missing that might cause morale to plummet and such a long terrible run? Just feels like I am missing somethings obvious after being successful in prior versions before managerial styles were in the game? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks
  17. Hi all Could someone clarify whether social network posting is available during beta please... Appears greyed out during game setup? Many thanks
  18. Will the create a club mode, be something that if started during beta, will be able to be continued once the game is release?
  19. Thanks Guys. I tell you what I will do, I will book the couple of days off and then come back on her and advise what dates, so that SI can then ensure it aligns with my time off ;-) Quite scary tbh, how at 35 years of age I am planning days off work as holiday, to coincide with the beta release of the game. Very much looking forward to the games release and one day a life lived in reality, rather than a virtual world of mediocre football management simulation
  20. I understand at present, the official line is that the beta will be "out roughly two weeks before release" I would like to book a couple of days off work around when that is, but does anyone know when it will be actually confirmed... i.e - how much notice we will get confirming the beta's release Many thanks
  21. I wonder if anyone could help me please, since downloading the last update, I cannot see the Formation on the tactics screen at all? Any help would be much appreciated
