  1. This is now happening to me. I can't seem to use the in-game editor despite having used it previously. Anybody else having issues with it? Thanks.
  2. If I leave my MacBook air long enough for the screen to go dark, Football Manager 17 will crash and I have to completely restart Steam and so on. If somebody can offer me some advice to stop this from happening (and turning off power save mode is not really an ideal option), it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Nick
  3. I need some help. I've played FM since 96/97 but still can't solve this horrendous problem. Long story short....I took over Liverpool and left Crystal Palace in March 2018, ending the season in 17th place, avoiding relegation by a point. The team cannot stop shipping goals. Seven against Leicester, 3 versus Newcastle and four against Arsenal, Chelsea, Bournemouth (4 in first 28 minutes) and Southampton. I play a 4-2-3-1, control mentality and fluid. Here is my line-up: Joe Hart. Moreno (FBA), Lovren (BPD), Mammana (BPD), Clyne (FBA). Henderson (BWM) David Silva (ADP) Coutinho (IF), Firmino (ADP), Burke (RWA) (striker is a gen, stats are CA.136 & PA. 176) I have five star defensive and tactics training, with the player players all completely comfortable with the tactics asked. I'm missing something and desperately need some help! Thanks, Nick
  4. Update on my Son situation... Bayern came back in with a £48m bid which again I rejected... up pops the old 'pressure is building on the manager to get rid' Two weeks later Son tells me he is happy. I froze him completely out of the team (Brandt came in and done brilliant) First game back Son scores 1 assists 1 MOTM!! Just sold Ben Davies for potential fee of £15m to make room for the rise of Kyle Walker-Peters who has gone from being labelled the next Ashley Cole to Stuart Pearce oddly.... don't no if that's a good thing!!!! Got £35m to spend, managed to snap up Leon Goretska from Schalke for a piddly £10m!!! He was transfer listed How much was Brandt? I was amazed at his wage requests...I walked away from the deal as he was being ridiculous.
  5. Into my 4th season with Spurs...First season came 4th (then lost in Champs League Qualifiers to Roma), second season I won the League. and the recent third season I came 3rd. No cup wins to speak of as yet, although fourth season should prove to be a good one. I'm also into the new stadium but the repayments are a hassle as I like to run a tight ship financially. This has put a stop to massive spending, although with sales of players like Vertonghen, Chadli, Mason, Vorm, Fazio, Trippier, Davies, N'Jie, Dembele, Yedlin, Walker, Wimmer and Townsend I was able to flex some muscles. Don't get me wrong, I've money in the bank, but I'm being tight with it until the stadium is paid off then I'll really spend on players to strengthen right back, left back and maybe right inside-forward. Over the four years, players I've brought in are Rooney (2.8m), Cook (12.5m) Odegaard (20m), Bakkali (14m), Cresswell (5.5m), Lucas Leiva (2.9m) and Ashley Young (free transfer). My team is currently like this: Lloris, Rose, Mammana, Dier, Carter-Vickers, Alli, Cook Malcolm, Eriksen, Lamela Kane
  6. Whilst manager of Tottenham I was interviewed by Manchester United for their job, which I promptly took. However, during the interview I was asked whether I would keep the backroom staff if appointed. I agreed I would do as I thought it would help my chances of being offered the job. How long does this promise last for? I desperately want to bring in new coaches as the current ones aren't good enough for me. Please help. Thanks in advance.
  7. I've picked up my laptop this morning to play FM15, clicked on FM15 and it says that the game needs to install!! Very strange considering I've already done that (when it first came out). I will be furious should I lose my game progress.
