  1. Yeah, but his value during the last 2 seasons, where he underperfomed (9 goals in over 50 games, 6,76 average rating on last season) was always close to 45-50M€. It didn't dropped. Sold him to Inter for 49M€, plays badly, value aint dropping. Also, look at Ricardo Rodriguez. Bought him for 21 M€. One of my best performers, 2 1/2 years left till the end of the contract, and his priced dropped massively. I don't get it...
  2. Hi there, fellows. Like many of you, I feel like most of the times, many of my players are undervaluated. This has been happening in every FM that I remember, but this year, I find it even more weird. I'm mid 4th season with Valência. Here are a few examples: - One of my best valued players was Rodrigo. He was my best scorer on the 1st season (17 goals, not THAT great), but on the 2nd season he was underperforming (5 goals all season). I still kept him one more season, but he was abysmal. So, I sold him for 49M€ (against his will, as he still thought that he was doing great!). 49M €. Since then, he played 5 games and scored 1 with Inter (I'm in february, he had no injuries), and he is still valued at over 40M €, with 30y/o. - Santi Mina was my best scorer on S2, with 18 goals. His value never got over 15M €. Since he was underperforming on S3, I loaned him out for 1/2 season to West Ham, where he tanked (1 goal during the second half of the season, on West Ham), and sold him to Bristol City for 8.5€ M. He scored 2 during this time, on 18 games. He's still valued at 8.5M €. - bought Lovre Kalinic mid-S1. 17M €. Good GK, my nº1 until S4. Good performances. His price dropped considerably, and I was lucky to sell him on S4 winter market for 7M€ to Man. United (he was desperate to leave to a bigger club, and lost 1st team place to Raya). - S2, I bought Lovro Majer for a few quids. He gets 16 assists, my top performer on that regard. Never got valued over 12M €, and he's 24/25 y/o now. Valued at 11M€. - Ferran Torres. Top assist (9) on S3, doing great on S4. 21/22 y/o, so young, great margin for progress. Valued at 3M €. - Gaya left for Arsenal, for 35M€ + bonus on S2. Was desperate to leave. Got Ricardo Rodriguez for 21M€. One of my most consistent performers. Top assist on my current season. Currently valued at... 7M€. - Diakaby. My best DC. Never valued over 15€M, though he had an average rating over 7 on every season. - Carlos Soler. Underperforming on every season but the 1st. Squad player, never grabed that 1st team place. Valued at 18M€. - Alvaro Medran. Plays the same position as Soler. Average rating of over 7 on the 2nd season in a row. Valued at 7M€. I mean... how do these valued actually work? They do not seem to take performances into account. None of the undervalued players is even close to the end of the contract. It does seem to value reputation a lot (see Rodrigo). But a player doing as great as Ferran Torres, is so undervalued? How long does it take for reputation to change? It's strange. I remember on FM 11 or 12, I had Michael Eneramo as my best scorer, on my Sporting Lisbon save, and Bayer Leverkussen kept coming for him for "astronomical" amounts (never offered over 4M€, though he scored 25-30 goals/season). SO... anyone has an explanation of how exactly this all work? Thanks.
  3. Pretty bad, I’m afraid. Tried 2 saves. Started well the league, keeping in European places, drawing 0-0 away with Benfica and Porto, but then, on both saves, after 6-8 games, it all went downhill. I achieved, on both saves, a 12 games streak with no wins (on the league). The team hardly scored. On 2nd save, Yusupha, my best scorer had 7 goals(league and cups), when I was sacked after 23 rounds.
  4. Yeah... I know what you mean. I'm omw to failing on my 2nd atempt with Boavista. What I did to raise funds was to sell David Simão (probably the best player) for around 2.5M €. You could sell Sparagna also, as he earns A LOT compared to the rest of the squad. That's how I got the money. But still, I think the squad is weak to go for european places. OR, I could be training them very badly...
  5. I have tried FMT on an iPad in the past, and was disappointed with its slow processing speed and input lag. The possibility of playing FM on the go was one of the reasons I bought a Switch. Being the FM nerd that I am, I couldn’t resist the urge, and spend 35€ on the eshop to get that game. Boy, am I sorry I did it... Look, the game is playable. But the UI is horrible and unintuitive. I can deal with the slow processing times occasionally, but really... the interface is really, really bad. I’m no expert, but I think the game can be improved and be playable. At the current state, I just wish that I could get my money back. There should be a demo on the store to protect the users from this kind of games. I really love the full game, and even FMT on the PC. I love SI. But... can’t defend them now. Do not get this game on the Switch. I’m very sorry to say it. It’s not worth it. You’ll spend more time trying just to select what you want then actually enjoying he game. At the current state, I would give it a ⭐️ ⭐️
  6. What about Boavista's board expectactions? Can we expect a "re-tuning" of expectations?
  7. Boavista's board expecting at least Champions League qualification? Totally unrealistic. At the very, very best, top half expectations.
  8. I meant the 6 yard area. Didn't knew how to refer to it in english. This is a constant problem I've been having, on several teams, so it must be me. This is what I've been using. 1st - Inter - Played 4231. 1 wingback(s), 1 full back(a). both defenders on defensive duty. Atack, fluid. Tight marking 2nd - Sheffield Unt. 532. 2 complete wingbacks (1 on S, 1 on A). The defense was D(c), BPD (c), D(c). Play from the back, keep possession. Control, Fluid. 3rd - Boavista FC. 4123. Defense is: DFB (d), D(c), D(c), FB (s). Normal, Rigid. Tight marking. Just started, but been suffering a lot of goals on pre-season. Most of them in the 18 or 6 yard box. How can I prevent this? higher line with off-side trap? Deeper line? Disable tight marking?
  9. Hi there. On my recent saves, I've been having trouble with my defense. I suffer a lot of goal on my keepers area, mostly from deep through balls or low crosses. Also, my DC have been prone to making a lot of mistakes. How does one defend against such goals? Should I move my defensive line higher? Is there other way? I usually have them on standard, on a 4123 or 4231 formation. Thanks.
  10. But, is any of that teams “easy”? I’m needing an successful save, to get my FM mood up again.
  11. Hi, fellow managers. This year, I was having a pretty decent save with Valencia, when my computer died. Since I got a new laptop, I’m struggling to get back into the game. I don’t really know what team I want to get into, and the new saves I tried ended very badly (Inter Milan, was fired by January, in 8th place; Sheffield United, I quit because I was losing a lot, and suffering a lot of goals (most of them on my keepers area). Tried different tactics and aproachs, but no good results whatsoever. I don’t really know what is lacking, but my defenders keep making a lot of mistakes. I’m just not feeling it for any club, actually. And I find the game more difficult this year. So, can anyone advise me on a “easy”, compelling save? I don’t wanna create an international reputation manager. I usually prefer to train middle of the table/“Try for Europe” teams (last years I good saves with Valencia, West Ham and Everton. The years before, I’d usually go for Sporting Lisbon). Also, I prefer teams on the top 2 divisions of a country, and I only use Portuguese, English, Spanish, Italian, German and French leagues. What would you guys use? I’m thinking maybe of Atalanta, Newcastle United, maybe Wolverhampton, Aston Villa... Go on. Advise me, please...
  12. A question. This? https://www.pcdiga.com/portatil-msi-15-6-gl63-8rd-401xpt Or this? https://www.pcdiga.com/portatil-msi-15-6-gl62mvr-7rfx-1234xpt Thanks
  13. Hi there, fellow FM'ers. My laptop died, so I'm currently on the market, scouting for a new one. FM is not the only game I play, but it is the one I spend most time with (I also play Diablo 3, Overwatch, WoW). What's more important for FM? Should I invest on a better graphics card, a better processor or more RAM? The money isn't infinite, so I must make choices. I'm thinking a GPU 1050ti or a 1060 (is it worth the extra buck, or is it a bit overkill?). 8Gb RAM is enough, or should I go for 16gb? Quad core is enough for FM, or a hexa core is the way to go? I'd like a quick answer, pls, as I'm about to buy the laptop this week. Thanks.
