  1. Hi All/SI I just wondered if there was any news/update as to how the game is going in Korea and whether SI are exploring yet, rolling this game out to other countries (England)? Many thanks
  2. Football Manager Live was a great concept and the best version of the game I have ever played and despite that not and still not being a viable model, I believe Sports Interactive could and should now improve the possible online modes to incorporate some kind of formal online structure.  This could be along the lines of the Fifa Ultimate Team concept, with a rank etc through to more detailed online league structure.  Currently I believe, the online modes of draft/online games are limited unless you have a group of pre-defined mates you know etc and in the generation and take up of "e-gaming" it would be great to know that this is something Sports Interactive are at least looking at
  3. Hi Guys I have posts from the game to Twitter, for significant news set to "Automatic" but ever since I have started my save, I have not had one update posted, Now I know what your thinking, well maybe you haven't achieved/done anything significant, but I have won the Play-off Final out of the Conference South Any ideas on how to get this working, would be much appreciated
  4. Hi All I wonder if anyone could help me, during a match the Match Action Bar, used to auto-hide now it is fixed and I literally cannot find where to change this? Funnily enough, I haven't changed that option, so not sure why it has changed - only change to preferences was changing Rendering Mode to "Software" I have also checked the online menu, and where I suggests to find it in preferences under match/In match preferences, it isn't even there. Any help would be very much appreciated
  5. I will take that if he is dropping down to me at Conference South level! Hoping he will do a job!
  6. 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
  7. 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?
  8. Hi all has it been confirmed if there will be a lower resolution version released?
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. At that level technical attributes are largely irrelevant as so poor, concentrate on work rate, determination and physical attributes
  13. 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.
  14. Guys if you miss FM Live, try the client based game 90 Minute Fever... closest I have come across to fm live enjoy
  15. Thanks very much for the options and recommendations Welshace if I did go up to a 14" what's the better options out there?
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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.
  19. 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?
  20. No worries hunter appreciate your honesty, very demoralized but there's a challenge
  21. 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
  22. Hi all Could someone clarify whether social network posting is available during beta please... Appears greyed out during game setup? Many thanks
