  1. I understand completely that the ratings vary depending on your standard, if you scout a player when you are a smaller team, they will obviously have a ridiculously high rating in comparison to if you were a larger team. You can see that by the way ratings change as you go through the leagues and get promoted. However there are 5 star players (more 4.5 star players) ! If you start a game as a top team, then you may have 5 star players. EG Barca have neymar, suarez and messi all 5 stars. Why does no one ever replicate this later in the game through potential? Pogba is a 5 star player. My point is there are never anymore 5 star players after the ones that are originally given this rating at the beginning of the game. More importantly players rarely reach their potential even though there form/long term av. rating suggests that they have. The coach reports rarely make sense. Form should dictate much more than opinion.
  2. Hola, So this has been my biggest bug bearer in recent FM's ever since we received the star rating system, coupled with the good/quality/leading player/world class tags. When the game begins, there is always the synonymous players that have been attributed their 5 star ratings, but then thats it... and thats always it. In any save I have ever had since, (multiple) I have never had a player who has potential 5 star (rating) actually hit it. So strange its almost like a glitch....Im not sure why it annoys me so much but it does. Im not sure if its because they aren't closely linked enough to individual form or what... but Ive literally had the likes of Belotti, Dembele, Dybala and Mbappe have incredible individual and collective season and even win Balon D'Or's to be told they are 4 out of 5 stars?? So who is 5 stars?? A 33 year old Messi still? I understand that the game is built on data from scouts and statistics but in the real world- form still dictates all. Thats why most fm players will actually ignore coach and scout advice sometimes and base decisions on what they can see in match performances. A real world example is Gareth Bale- He can go from Southampton trying to loan him to Birmingham, to becoming a world record transfer...why? Not because of scout or coach predictions, although Im sure many will claim they were aware of his potential, but in reality he made his ascent from constantly performing in games. The bigger the game the bigger the ascent, the greater the hype etc etc. Im aware I can ignore my coach that tells me Marco Assenssio is a 3.5 star player, even though he has 15 assists and an Av. rating on 7.7 but why should I? I know Im not the only one that only wants more accurate reflections for the big potential players later on in the game but also the door opened for the underdog. The unexpected hero...the one who comes from league 2 and becomes a premiership player scoring 7's and 8's every week and an integral part of your team. Reward him! I dont want my coach to keep telling me he is just a good player. Hence why in FM16-17 a lot of Leicester players had all their stats and potentials listed. So let those changes occur naturally, during a save, thats all we are asking for. Heck some days I kind of wish they were not even in there (star ratings)...or perhaps make them far more varied. One coach think a player is a world beater the other thinks they can do more. I rambling now, but hopefully my point has achieved its purpose. Oh and don't even get me started on how long players take to adapt to new roles and positions. Anyway thats all from me. PS Huge FM fan for life!
  3. I have tons of things that I want to see in the fm2017 but I'm going to kick the thread off with just one and go from there: *Manager targets- I think that clubs in the game should target managers the same way they do players. Its so annoying in the game to have to wait until a vacancy appears at a bigger club. We all know this isn't how football works. Especially if you are having a particularly successful period at a club, other clubs notice very quickly and the vultures begin to circle. Im Arsenal manager at the moment but want to move on, but not being linked with any jobs even though we've won everything! I think in real life the bigger boys would be trying to line you up to take over in the future. Like Guardiola at City, or Unai Emery at PSG. The coaches that were in place, weren't performing particularly badly, but the thought of getting someone better in, is always too good to resist from the board at these big clubs! Ive been waiting for Barca or Madrid to have an opening but no ones seems to be losing their job, even though we all know if you're one of the big 2 in spain and you have a trophy less season you're gone! Just would love to be involved in press speculation and links to other jobs, even more so when you're at the elite clubs. Right so thats my first wish!

  5. OK just to prove to everyone that this game has to be flawed!! Im still on my original save with Celta Vigo. We have finished 6th 6th 3rd 2nd (Won Spanish Cup) Winners of la liga! I couldn't even get an interview with chelsea or barcelona. The spain job came up, so i took that and quit as Celta Vigo coach. The game keeps asking me how it feels to be unemployed??? When I'm managing spain! My reputation is at 55% which I'm assuming is still not very good as newport county in league one just invited me to interview??? Celta Vigo as a club is now regarded as title challenger and a huge club, ye the manager that made that happen in a 5 year project, is not even being looked at by the bigger clubs? The reputation increases are not correct or accurate!!!!
  6. After 10 years of fm im turning my back on the game. Ive just finished 2nd in la liga with celta vigo and won the spanish cup and cant even get a job interview at a higher rated club. The staure of the club has increased significantly because of performance in last years champs league but my reputation is still terrible! The game is flawed! I have nowhere to go.
  7. Will you be ever allowed to fight your corner on players that say they aren't getting first team football. Ive got an 18 year old that has started over 65% of all games and is still saying I have broken promises to play him? So frustrating because I don't want to lose him.
  8. Exactly! Im not talking about finishing 5th with SPURS! They have huge resources. In my current save I am Celta Vigo, now if they finish 6th, 5th and 3rd and have a huge negative net spend.....surely that warrants some recognition????? The frustrating thing is, I have nowhere to go because as a cub commercially Celta don't make huge profits, so we have to sell players, making it harder and harder to compete, Realistically impossible to topple Barca or Madrid. Therefore I would like a new challenge but can't get one.
  9. It wasn't the necessary the FA CUP final thing, but if any of those managers in that list took one of their sides to back to back 5th place finishes over two years in the job they would get media attention at the least. Its deffo flawed, as the same thing happens on my save every game, Ill win a trophy and then get offered to interview for every big job going. Im saying in football nowadays, whether it be a player or manager, if you're consistently performing at a higher level than expected then you are somebodies radar, trust me.
  10. Every version of this amazing game comes in and I always somehow expect them to have sorted out what is the most unrealistic element of the whole game. REPUTATION! You STILL have to wait to win trophies before you get any recognition, and are considered for better jobs. Theres no middle ground either, its either no offer or have your pick of any club on the planet. Its happened on any save I've ever had. Last save I was Sunderland and had back to back 5th place finishes followed by an FA CUP final day out. In real life if someone took Sunderland in the stop half they would have people crawling all over them. Im currently Celta Vigo, with a net spend of -£100m over 3 year (generated from player sales) I have finished 6th, 5th and now 3rd (qual for champs league) and still get laughed out of town by any clubs that have vacant position. Strange that someone who is sacked a week before is preferred to someone who has continually performed?? Now I know managers do get sacked and re-employed but 9/10 its too a lesser side. There are a handful of elite that don't. David Moyes and Brendan Rodgers took two of the BIGGEST jobs in world football without winning a sausage and Pocchetino got the Spurs job after one ok season with Southampton. Anyway my point is, if I win the Spanish Cup, I am more likely to gain recognition than qualifying for the champs league with an underdog. Now in no reality is that ever actually the case. Anyway Im sure people must agree!
  11. i get what you're saying, and Ive been playing fm for donkeys years but i actually think it might be missing from my version? I literally have been clicking everywhere and can't get more than the basic instructions:
