  1. Not only are you being damn rude to the other poster on here, you are completely wrong. Nothing wrong with being wrong, but don't be so rude about it and actually listen to what he is saying, because he is spot on.
  2. Depends on the country and depends on the profit levels as to how often you have to make corporation tax payment. Over a certain level (which profit making football clubs will be) you will be making instalment payments for corporation tax throughout the year. Also, corporation tax has nothing to do with income/turnover, it is based on you taxable profit throughout the year.
  3. If they are the same as the symbols from the pre-match screen then I think it means it's that players debut. If you hover over it I think it says.
  4. Just read the FAQs, most of which I had read when the game first came out, although it did help with some things. So am I right in thinking that if I'm in the conference and I want to job lot scout a load of players based in England that it won't cost me anything as it will be within my scouting range? If so I can pretty much continue how I used to scout, which doesn't sound right because then I don't understand why I would have struggled so much when I first tried to play it. Sorry if I'm completely missing something.
  5. Any general tips on how to go about it with the new system. With top teams I used to have my scouts out on assignments all over the world and then look through all of the 'known' players star ratings and pick out a bunch to specifically scout further and gradually keep narrowing the list down to a shortlist. With lower league team I used to do the above (Obviously a lot more players on the initial list as not trying to improve on already world class players) and also used to go around scouting Prem and Championship youth teams whose contracts were expiring. My understanding of the new system (from memory and limited use) was that scouting individual players like both scenarios above would cost a fortune and basically isn't do-able anymore. I'm all for change and making the game more realistic (and therefore harder) but I just couldn't figure out a way of actually getting meaningful scouting information without spending getting out of control. P.s. sorry if this information is already out there in other threads.
  6. Just looking for some general feedback and feeling about the new scouting system on FM18. As every year, I bought the new FM in November looking to get stuck in straight away. I was quite excited about the new scouting system as the main enjoyment I get out of a game is transfers and building a team. I've never really enjoyed the tactics (although I think my real world knowledge of tactics is pretty good) and try to get away with the bare minimum, which seems to be getting harder, but that's another point. Once I got started with FM18 I just couldn't get in to it and the main reason was the new scouting, I can't remember exactly what it was about it but I just didn't like it. Liked the idea but it didn't feel like it worked well enough and seemed like it might be one of those features that takes a year to get right. That alongside having my first child born in September, therefore massively restricting my game time, lead to me going back to FM17, which I have never done with a version of FM before. Have people got used to the scouting now, do I just need to give it more of a chance and get to understand it or is it likely to be something to get a lot better next year. Cheers in advance.
  7. Great updates as always. Ryan Price finishing with 12 assists in 13 games is just ridiculous, surely someone will take notice of him soon. Crazy move for Josh Scowen, York to Marseille. Slightly worried he may spend a lot of time in the reserves but only time will tell.
  8. Not sure I could have hoped for a better start for my two lads. Surprised Price didn't get an u20 call-up but I'm sure it won't be long.
  9. Great start for Ryan Price over in Sweden. He looks like a decent player as well. Hopefully Josh Scowen can start getting game time soon enough as well.

  11. My impact seems to be really slowing down at Stoke, possibly needs a move but all the big teams have too many of our players already. Also, hoping the above move doesn't hinder my playing time.
  12. Very happy that my guy has stayed at Stoke and is benefitting from no striker teammates. Hopefully will continue to climb!
  13. I'll take 15 goals. If I'd known how good we were going start, CA-wise, I probably would have started at a bigger club. I was concentrating on getting game time, lets hope being at Stoke won't hinder me.
  14. Can't wait for this, loved the Sheriffs and Bandits experiments and have always thought about doing something like this myself.

  16. Struggling to see the advantage or need for this...?
  17. Lads, a bit of advise needed. Started a Spurs game after the winter patch, disabled the first transfer window and now in the first January. Got the opportunity to get John Stones or Stefan de Vrij for 40mil. Toby and Jan have been brilliant so far at the back, not sure if it's a waste of money getting one of them in or not. de Vrij looks much better and obviously Stones as got great potential, I just don't usually spend that sort of money. Thoughts?
  18. Hi guys, Just a quick question that I could test for myself but I'm at work at the moment and being impatient. I'm looking at doing a little experiment save on FM and wondered what would happen if I set a players future transfer for about 20 years in the future, in order to keep him at the current club. Would he stay with his current team until the future transfer or would he leave at the end of his current contract? Is it possible to set the contract to 20 years without it changing on the start of a new save? Or is there any other way to keep a player with his club for most of his career? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  19. Haha have a laugh. This is probably the cleanest FM release for years, and there has never been an 'unplayable' version of FM as proved by all of the users that play it from day one. Bye
  20. If you're still interested I can tell you the HP Probook runs FM really well, I've got 44 leagues in 15 nations and it's running really fast, compared to what I'm used to.
  21. As you've used my original post as a starting point and seem to be after the same sort of things as me I thought I'd quickly respond. I have a few responses in mind regarding that laptop but I'll leave that to Smurf or someone else a lot more knowledgeable than me. I have ordered the HP Probook that Smurf recommended to me, and it'll hopefully be arriving tomorrow, so I can log back in on here and let you know how it serves me if that is of any help at all.
  22. Thanks again, really appreciate your help. Looks like I'll go for the one you suggested then. Cheers
  23. That's really helpful thanks. I've found this one from Currys http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/acer-aspire-f5-571-15-6-laptop-black-10137492-pdt.html how does it compare to the one recommended. I can't seem to find whether it's a 32-bit or 64-bit OS. Also, my current laptop is an Acer Aspire, are they prone to overheating or can that happen with any laptop that's being pushed to its limit? And lastly, this one I've found is Windows 10, is that likely to be an issue? Thanks again
  24. Hi Guys, My laptop is fairly old and starting to get quite laggy in general let alone when running FM, and even worse has started turning off from overheating nearly every time I play (I used to be able to counter this by propping the corner up but even that doesn't seem to work anymore). I do probably push it to its limit as I run about 40 leagues from 12 countries. My laptop is an Acer Aspire 5742Z, Windows 7 Home Premium, 6GB RAM, Intel® Pentium® CPU P6200 2.13 GHz, 64-bit operating system. What's most important for running FM, processor and RAM? Bearing in mind that I never use 3D match highlights, only 2D. Can I actually get a lot better than my current laptop, for a reasonable price, I wouldn't like to spend much more than £400, less if possible. I'd hate to spend around £400 on a laptop and it only be slightly better than what I already have. I'm not sure if my laptop isn't that good or if it's just it's age. Sorry for rambling on, any tips would be greatly appreciated.
  25. Exactly this. Was planning on playing around with tactics etc until the full game came out, lasted all of two days before I started my proper game. Haven't found a reason to restart yet.
