  1. Has anyone had the stadium move past planning permission? I'm in summer 2024 now and still nothing. I looked in the editor and it says latest move date is 01/07/2026 and it says there is a 9% chance of it happening... Feels like a jealous Liverpool fan has been at the database seeing as the building will start this year IRL. I wish I had edited it before I started my save now.
  2. I've got Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin and Milik boshing in headers left, right and centre in my Everton save. I'm not saying there is no issue, but I've certainly not experienced it. No issues with one on one's either to be honest and I rarely score screamers! Basically my 2 seasons with the game have been the polar opposite to what you are describing!
  3. I'm quite happy to do it if a high earner is surplus to requirements. I'd rather sell him pay him £20,000 a week for the remainder of his contract with me than pay him £100,000 to rot in the reserves until it runs out. It definitely happens in real life, probably more often than you'd realise.
  4. It stretches back much further than FM2020... I've been saying this for over a decade (hypothetically at least), just spending an extra year getting the fundamental systems right and not adding loads of fluff (or "features") would go a very long way. Unfortunately it sounds like a great idea, but will never happen as too much money is made on annual releases and there is zero competition in the football management genre nowadays pushing Sports Interactive on. I will caveat by saying I love FM, problems, quirks and all, but it does feel like it's stagnated a lot in the past
  5. This sounds amazing. Going to give this a go when the ratings bug is fixed.
  6. I hope it's a hot fix and not a wait for patch, this is game breaking for me.
  7. Bought this yesterday finally after building my new PC and it's unplayable because of this. I thought buying late this year would help, it seems not. I'll wait for an update then I suppose...
  8. In my 2020 save, let's just say Liverpool often lost key games that didn't directly impact me 😉
  9. Thanks, I've just bought all the parts for a new gaming PC (and work) and it's the first time I've gone for 32GB of memory. I'm quite excited so I'm going to give it the big one: CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 5800x CPU COOLER: NZXT Kraken X63 280mm AIO MEMORY: Corsair Vengeance Pro 3600mhz 32GB (4*8GB) MOTHERBOARD: Asus ROG Strix X570-E Gaming STORAGE: Gigabyte AORUS 1TB M.2 PCIe 4.0 x4 NVMe SSD/Solid State Drive (two of these) GPU: MSI GeForce RTX™ 3070 SUPRIM X 8G PSU: Corsair AX860i Digital ATX 80 PLUS® PLATINUM CASE: NZXT H710 White/Black My PC h
  10. This still stands for me, I will at the very minimum wait for early access opinions, specifically on the match engine. Still, I'm very much looking forward to see what the new game offers. I still have high hopes.
  11. Didn't expect this for a little while longer so a nice surprise. Fingers crossed the match engine is a vast improvement on the last few games, particularly 2020 where it as a gamebreaker for me personally. I won't pre-purchase yet like I normally do, I'll wait until early access and see what the consensus is. Great work to get it out only a few weeks later than normal given the circumstances and as one of the many people working from home permanently, I know how hard this has likely been for SI and the amount hard work that has gone into to getting a game released in good time.
  12. I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Max Aarons. Great RB, I've had him 7 years in my long term Newcastle United save.
  13. I had him for 3 years in my Newcastle save and made him captain for 2 of those. I played him as one of two Attacking Midfielders behind the striker and he was brilliant. Sold him only because I had better players come through and I changed tactics which no longer needed two AMC players. He left a club legend, highly recommend him.
  14. I had him for 3 years and he just may not have fit my system as other (on paper) less talented AMC players comfortably outperformed him.
  15. Just had an astonishing season with Newcastle (6th season) where in my first season partnering Mbappe and Haaland together they scored 53 and 42 respectively in all comps.
  16. You're just being needlesly pedantic and ignoring the point of the OPs frustration.
  17. Just bought him at the start of my 6th season with Newcastle United for an eye watering £252m from Barcelona (min fee release clause), paying him £525k a week. I've been playing the same 4-3-2-1 formation for 5 years and in order to fit Mbappe in and play my long term main striker Haaland in the same team I've completely changed system to a 4-4-2. I begrudgingly sold two of my long standing AMCs (Asensio & HJ Traore) to fund the move and a couple of very good youth prospects for excellent money. Actually in pretty good shape financially as I spent £400m, but raised £330m in the reshuf
  18. Nice, Seems to be working well up front then! Great goal return.
  19. Best player in the thread IMO, an absolutely disgusting player for 16. It would be interesting to see how he turns out. Definitely more of a CM than his natural SC in my opinion.
  20. All bought, but these three are regulars in my squad for me. They've all been great so far. Particularly chuffed with Bukusu as he had poor finishing and long shots when he came in (12 and 11 respectively) and I've seen vast improvement over a short period. Hopefully I'll get them up further. Barber was a bargain, got him from Reading for £15m and loaned him straight back for a year, he won player of the year at Reading and effectively saved them from relegation from the Championship before coming straight into my first team. Xu Shuo cost me a lot of money from PSG, think I paid
  21. I just sold Havertz in my Newcastle save after 2 and a half years performing below my other AMCs (Asensio, Almada, Bellingham). He played better in the MC role but still not as well as other players (Doucoure, Camavinga). It must be the Work Rate and Determination that does it. Really disappointing, don't miss him in my first season without him. Real Madrid's problem now! I replaced him with Hamed Junior Traore, who was bargain and scored a hat trick on his debut, something Havertz didn't manage in 2 and a half years in his position. He's been a far better player than Havertz al
  22. The number sheer number of these types of topics shows that SI have not explained the star rating system very well in game. It's on the verge of being useless anyway and either needs to be tweaked to make it more useful, made less prominent or removed all together. It has to be the most misunderstood thing in the game and I don't blame the average player for that. It needs looking at IMO.
  23. Now I know this has been done to death, but after playing Championship Manager 01/02 for a few weeks and going back to my FM2019 save for a few seasons, I had the urge to give FM2020.4 a go by making Newcastle rich in the editor and going on a buying spree. However, it's so frustrating, the game is so poorly balanced. Please fix this for FM2021... The same old problems. This screenshot is an extreme example of what I pretty much experience on a game by game basis. I beat bottom of the table 6-0, of these goals my centre back Lascelles scored a hattrick of headers from corners, my other ce
