  1. Can you share the save? Would love to give it a go.
  2. Play in Sweden - you have the option to sell your home advantage and gain part of the gate receipts :P
  3. The issue is not as much in the database, but in facepacks / logopacks. For those of you with external graphics, I would advise seeing the "rating" with and without the additional graphics. Getting the megapacks was the first thing I always did on previous FMs, but on FM20, I've grown more accustomed to play without them and just enjoy the game in its "full speed"
  4. Well, Bolton is suppose to be tough The expectations for me seem a bit unrealistic, though, as with the financial decline, they should look for you to steady the ship before wanting to go up again. I would advise addressing this to the bugs forum for someone on SI to give his feedback on.
  5. I remember last time I moaned against the ME, I was convinced that strikers are pre-disposed to "balance" goals between them and no one can have a Ronaldo-like season in-game - after posting that ranting thread, I had a beast of a newgen at Blackburn who ended with 53 goals in 37-38 appearances (was on FM17 or FM18) I've made it a rule afterwards not to speak out rashly! Imagine Sterling's last-second miss against Newcastle - passing it to the keeper like that, how many people would lose their cool should it happen in-game?
  6. There is always injury proness, consistency and a hell lot of other stuff that means much more than the CA / PA numbers. I never took too much interest in those and never cared for them. You probably won't remember them in a week, so you can hold off that save for an amount of time and try another challenge in the meantime.
  7. @Svenc: That ricochet West Ham goal is just lit Btw, people that moan about the ME should really look how far we've come since that FM15 highlight reel!
  8. How am I only the first person to upvote this? I definitely think that we need much sensible approach to "why things happen in a certain way" and not capslocking "game is broken" rants. I'm not a tactical genius, so I appreciate the time you took to brake this down
  9. WestHamGaz, is that you? (Throwback and shout out to any former TheDugout members with that reference! ) While I agree the one on ones need a bit of tweaking here and there, this is one of the most glorious match engines I've encountered. There were many improvements and you can really see some of those already being posted - a winger who centers the ball, striker doesn't interfere and the GK makes a late dive in attempt to save the cross, but it ends in the net. A goalkeeper, parrying the ball slightly, but not enough, as it goes in for a goal (this happened during a penalty shootout for my team and my heart went to my stomach for a second there, thinking it was saved!) Also, one of my personal favorites - as I like to play with marauding wingbacks, I love it when the winger holds up the ball, the CWB goes around him for the through ball, receives the pass and he centers it in for a great header which meets the net That's only bits of the many improvements on the ME. Ofc, it's not perfect, but I think in time, it will go from strength to strength.
  10. Yeah, they are IRL, they haven't invested a lot yet, but the money is there for you to spend
  11. My save with Larne slowed down a lot as i reached the 26/27 season and my laptop is not as top end as I wish it to be :D During the week I'll get myself to post some detailed info on the squad and upload the save for someone else to pick up :)
  12. Well, it was fun while it lasted... we then led 2:0 against Ballymena, only to lose 2:3 with a red-card to Ilic. Also, I love doing bits of business like this! We sell him and then we loan him back in! Overall, we were great on the transfer market as we keep pumping fresh money into the club. Once more, the CL Group draw was not kind to us.... but then again, with the CL money we're now sitting pretty on 54M balance, so it's not too bad!
  13. For the LotR fans among you..."the way is shut" I think I ought to start Vantruba as my first choice keeper than the Peacock! Also...Mind. The. Gap. Not anywhere near close to my target of 200 goals, but defensively, we've gone from strength to strength. Also our initial budgets are worth mentioning, as I believe most Championship teams will be happy with those numbers! This news item - made me chuckle. Obviously not everyone is happy with their amount of playing time, but...
  14. Tough luck! I won against Olympiacos 2:1 at home, but a 1:3 defeat in Greece + a red card made sure we're out of the Euro Cup and couldn't reach the Semis. Personally, I'm already going for a rebuild, as a host of teams are interested in most of my players and I have better talented 17-18yos coming in. Also one tasty Serbian DMC from Man City coming in on a 20K per week wage
  15. Yeah, I dunno what is it with newgen's rep, but a newgen is much more likely to join you than an existing player in the DB. I can't quite put my finger on it, but maybe it's a reputation difference between the starting players and the newgens. With Phil Cannon at the helm of the academy and our facilities at top notch, finally some good players - Cowan and Glackin can possibly become great strikers for our side. After "relegating" from the CL Groups to the Europa League Knockout stage, we faced off with Slavia Prague - 4:1 win at home and a 0:3 win away sent the Czech team packing, while CSKA Moscow were the next in line - a tense game at home with CSKA getting a red after the hour mark, we finally broke through and got a goal, with a 2nd coming in after 95 minutes of play! 2:0 and some cushion for the away trip to Moscow. In the away game, CSKA scored early on, but luckily after half hour we got that vital away goal. Second half started - BANG! 1:2! In the latter stages of the match we got a 3rd, so our European run will last awhile longer! In the Quarter Finals, we have...
