  1. I honestly feel the tactics just become more and more realistic as time goes on. People just get so bogged down in the fine details. Got to learn to walk before you can run. I think the way FM is now, people who watch a lot of football and have a decent understanding of what’s going on on the pitch, have a better chance of succeeding in FM. You often see a newby completely swamped in problems asking for all kinds of help and the first response is often “How do you want your team to play?”. If you don’t know much about football, how do you know how you want your team to play? Yes FM has become more complicated, but you can do well with a very simple system with very few instructions – as long as you approach it in a logical balanced way. So much of it is just thinking through the simple stuff. When my team has the ball, who will move up the field and who will stay back? Where will the space be? Do I have too many players trying to attack the same area of the field? Will I leave big gaps when I attack that will give me problems when I lose possession? If people just slowed down and thought all these things through and read the excellent descriptions of the different player roles etc, I think people would be much more successful. Similarly people make it too complicated when they’re watching a game. “What do I look for? I don’t know all the things Rashidi knows so how am I supposed to know what’s going on?” But again, if you just slow down and watch one or two things only in a game and then change something and watch to see only how that change affects things. And like Cleon always says, make ONE change and watch the game. If you are new and you just made 10 changes, how can you keep track of them all and know what made a difference? I feel like all these things become more & more important with every release. People CAN figure this stuff out for themselves if they have the patience. Just gotta start simple and work up from there. And people say “plug and play no longer works in 2016”. Silly. If you find a good logical system, it can be successful forever. Yes you may do even better by continually tweaking it, but it’s not necessary to be successful.
  2. No-one's really going to be interested in downloading a tactic from this part of the site. Put it in the downloads section or if you want to leave it here, post screenshots and an analysis of what you're trying to do and what's happening and what you'd like help with and I'm sure someone will help you.
  3. I think this has been a problem in FM for a while. It's one of those FM issues (the game still has MANY recurring problems that still aren't fixed after all these years) that SI & the mods here will try to tell you is your fault because the player is an IF or is selfish or it's something you are doing wrong somehow in your instructions etc etc. The fact is it happens all the time, regardless of who you play with. They are often shooting from angles that it is basically impossible to score from and often there are numerous open players that they just ignore. It happens way too much and is just silly and unrealistic. You might be able to do some things so reduce the frequency, but it'll keep happening until SI finally change it in the game.
  4. I'd be interested to know this too. Can we choose more than 3 leagues on either version? Sounds like no graphics can be added to the ipad version but what about PC? Are the premier league logos still missing? Can we watch a game in full on either version or are we still restricted to highlights only? So far I'm not seeing much difference between FMC15 and FMT16 on ipad.
  5. Suarez eats people. When you do that it makes your weight fluctuate. I'd say you created the perfect clone!
  6. LOL you must not follow real football. 4 years is a LONG time with one club these days. People like Fergie & Wenger are the exception, not the rule.
  7. Gotchya. Thanks very much for the response. Loving the game so far by the way. Just some of the graphics stuff is weird. If the vast majority of faces aren't in there and you can't add them, I'm not sure what the point of having tons of blacked out pictures is. Or where the stadium would be we can't put them and we just have pictures of some seats. Seems like it would be better to just leave out all that stuff. Anyway, as I said, other than that stuff and the generic PL logos I'm loving it so far. Never thought I'd see such an amazing version of FM on tablet. Thank you!!!
  8. But there are many downloads around for the Handheld version on iPad (faces, logos etc). So why would it be different for FMC?
  9. Really? You can on the "handheld" version. Why would it be different for classic?
  10. I just got the (amazing) FMC 2015 on iPad. I'm so far not seeing any graphics for download for this version. I know these things take time but anyone know if there's any kicking around anywhere?
  11. Instructions here: http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php/254587-iFMH-Android-How-to-extract-and-send-us-your-save-game-file
  12. I normally do but wasn't possible in this instance and would have made only a tiny difference if I'd been able to.
  13. Playing as Newcastle and just finished 2nd season. Finished 3rd in the league, runners-up in the Europa League, semi-final of the league cup and quarter final of the FA cup. We are labeled as "Rich". Beginning season 3 my 2 transfer budget options are: 1) Continental qualification: £15.75m with £20,000 wage room. When I increase the wage so that I would actually have room to buy a player, that gives me £12.5m with £79.000 wage room. 2) Winners: £16m with £143,000 wage room. According to Wikipedia, in the summer of 2014 after Newcastle finished 10th in the league (30 points away from a champions league spot), got to the 3rd round of the FA cup and 4th round of the league cup and weren't in Europe at all, they spent £35.4m and recouped £17.2m for a net spend of £18.2m. And looking at the players in and out I doubt there was a big change to the wages. So why is my transfer budget so unrealistically low? I know Newcastle have ownership issues but there's just no way they would have so little to spend after such an incredibly successful season and for guaranteed champions league football coming up next season. This basically made that save unplayable for me. All that hard work and success for nothing. So completely unrealistic it killed the save for me. I could sugar daddy it and suddenly have £50-70m or something every season but that would make it way too easy and make me feel like I'm cheating which I'm not interested in either.
  14. Great news! Love it!
  15. That's not dating you that much, mate. He was playing for Pompey in the premier league only a few years ago
