  1. Its based on my past experiences and reading the "valid" issues coming up. I don't appreciate you trying to diminish my point of view on the issue with saying that my opinion is very subjective and that I'm giving poor advice because I haven't played the beta. It's in incredibly poor taste that you decided to attack my comment when all I'm doing is giving my opinion on what this person should do. I have been playing this game a long time and have seen the same issues time and time again. I offered my advice to Danny because those are the things I have personally come up against and I can't discredit people who are responding in the appropriate threads about issues, and when I see the same thing written over and over and over again I have to believe there is validity to that. Hopefully the issues that are being talked about are ironed out when the demo is released, but it will make Danny's decision easier when it's released.
  2. I haven't gotten the game yet and I don't think I will right off the bat. I read through the beta issues and it's literally the same things year after year. Injuries, keepers not playing to their potential, long shot issues again, players unhappy for strange strange reasons, I mean the list kind of goes on. I understand that this is a beta, but these are issues that were in 2016 and previous FM's and still seem to crop up every year. I feel it takes a patch or two to get them sorted so I'm just going to wait for first patch and see if things get better. I would honestly tell others to do the same as it's a pattern that doesn't seem to get fixed and it's frustrating as a long time FM player. The match engine looks brilliant now and I love all the added animations and better stadium designs. I do wonder if dialogue has become more varied for a more immersive feel cause it got kind of stale in terms of press conferences and just answering questions. I will keep reading the forums and looking for reviews on yt to try and get a proper picture of how the game is really coming. So Danny I would say wait till a little after release to see if things have gotten better, but if there are still issues relating to injuries and the like I would say wait for first patch. Also there might be a deal on Steam which would allow for a cheaper buy.
  3. Jeff Hendrick from Derby is a good signing and great alternative to Dele Alli if he is out or needs a rest. Play the identical same way. Great pickup. Can't stress enough how well Milos Velijokic has played while I had an unexpected injury to Eric Dier and others. He has slotted into the Anchor man role really well. adult image
  4. Really enjoying playing with us this year. Milo Veijoska (spelled it wrong) has been amazing in the Dier role of Anchor Man. Dier was hurt in preseason for a while and I had no other option, but to try him out and he has been truly inspiring. Had a lot of injuries and also had to play Cameron Carter Vickers at the back in a couple league games and European games as Jan and Wimmer were hurt as well as Dier. He was really good as well. We are in 5th before Jan Window and I really like the squad I have. I got: Gabriel Barbosa, Young Serbian winger, and McDermott signed the Birmingham City winger who is 19 who has played some in games and looks like he could develop into something really good. Clinton started well in Europe, but is still raw. Even though with all the injuries at the back and all over I'm happy to let the younger players have a go and they are really developing. Really love Milo V. Don't even need to sign cover for Dier as we have it. Trippier was complaining about not getting in the team so I gave him a shot and he ran with it. So many assists in the games I played him. Fell off a bit, but still looks like he could be a solid backup. All the people up front are scoring. Townsend doesn't seem to have it so I will probably have to let him go, but it hurts cause he is a supporter of Spurs and losing him will sadden me. He just hasn't been good when I play him though. Alli is special and I have signed quite a bit of staff to help with development of our players. Vorm has been ok when he has played so all around we look solid. I sold off some people and so the books look really good. All in all I feel I can really get more time for the youth and let them show me what they can do without having to do much buying. I play a 4-1(DM)-1-3-1. Highly structured and on standard. I then have variations on this so that I can switch it up while keeping the same kind of tactic. Works really well. Have had some poor results against Arsenal and the bigger clubs. Beat Man U on opening day 1-4. From there we did well and went unbeaten through like 7 then dipped. Still with the youth in the team and all the injuries I'm happy to be where I am and how the youth has come on. Even though the kids stats don't look good give them a go in games with other more experienced players and they will grow in confidence. Also sold Bentaleb to Man U as he wanted out and was making a real stink. Got like 50 mil (35 upfront) so I think I did alright with all the youth coming along. Also brought in Meli from Boca. Needs some time still, but I think he will slot in nicely as a combative type to shore up the middle. So I think I have replaced Bentaleb. Mason has been in and out due to injury and Carroll is out on loan and Pritchard just can't get in the team. Played him in one game and he did well. Played him as a winger on the right and he was good. So I think I can work with him and he could very well be a good sub option. Anyway, hope you guys are enjoying similar success and thanks for doing a Spurs thread.
  5. In my save I'm Tottenham and Arsenal finished 4th and Chelsea finished 5th. Chelsea won the Champions League, but now there are 5 teams going into the Champions League. Doesn't one team get dropped like Arsenal who are in 4th? That is what happened to Tottenham when they finished 4th a couple years back and Chelsea won the CL. Can anyone elaborate?
  6. Amazing player who can play in the hole, on the left wing and right I think and he is a wonderful striker. Picked him up for cheap in my Tottenham save. Amazing amazing player. Gels really well with the team.
  7. Has anyone tried to do this? For FM 16 I was going to convert him into that position to be competition for Eric Dier. Has anyone tried this before and had any success?
  8. So does that mean that faces are not allowed to be added? I feel that isn't a licensing issue. Maybe portraying the team names and certain competitions, but surely they can put in the faces. It's not just the premier league it's many leagues from around the world.
  9. Getting proper pictures for all coaches, players, staff of any kind, and also proper emblems for teams and competitions. German national team proper. Stuff like that.
  10. The one feature I would love them to add would be current pictures for managers, coaches, physios, and players. This needs to happen. I understand it might be a licensing issue, but there really is no reason this shouldn't be in the game or hasn't been for the past years. It really bothers me that SI do not take the time to sort this out. The game price has come up and I think with that we deserve to see the players faces without having to get them put in ourselves. Also proper emblems of teams and competition names is a must from here on out. That is the only feature I feel has got to be put in.
  11. So for FM 15 I made a thread describing my idea for giving physios a bigger part to play in the game. Since injuries will be covered more in depth and be "... determined during matches.", I felt this would give me the time to bring this up. I would love to see a feature in which if a player is injured during a match or training the physio directly interacting with me in a more detailed fashion. I don't have a good example of how it should be for a training injury, but for an injury in a match I would like more detail at the precise moment my player is reached by my physios. This is done all the time in all leagues where physios report back it's his leg or arm and help me to reach a decision to either get that player off or wait a little to see if he can carry on. Also the level of ability my physio is should determine how accurate of a report he gives me on the spot. That could make it more meaningful to get a proper physio in at the club because if he or she makes a mistake in diagnosing the problem then I may leave that player on and further injure him by not getting that person off earlier. This is really the meat of my problem in that Physios stats really don't matter or as of FM 15 wasn't that big of a deal. Can anyone elaborate on this and let us know if there will be this kind of dynamic in FM 16. Thanks.
  12. Started a brand new save and bought Depay with the money I sold Vertonghan to Man U with and right when he arrives BOOM!! Out 3 months with injury that he got in training. On a more alarming note is anyone else finding that it is incredibly frustrating and quite simply silly that Ryan Mason gets hurt a lot!? In my saves he just can't get a good run of games because he is always hurt and I find it quite silly really.
  13. So people can edit the injuries altogether. Glad to know that. Hopefully someone on a seperate website will release a data release that will address injuries.
  14. Just wondering if you all at SI are thinking of releasing a small update to resolve the sliding bug animation and some other things that causing people some grief. I know that the devs think some things are good as is, but many on the forums are having a lot of issues having a playthrough. Thanks in advance.
  15. Spurs do in real life and have a heavy training regime and so I have to say they don't have as many injuries as I do. Ryan Mason has been hurt for pretty much the whole season. Going to have to sell him as I can't play him.
