  1. The DOF previously can be right pain in the arse. Set him up to sign staff he will sign any old rubbish and is willing to pay compo for them. He will fill every staff slot regardless of cost. I'd like the DOF to be the link between the playing side and the board, an advisor and someone who speeds up the transfer after negotiations have finished.
  2. The child in you is reaching out. Failing to use the quote icon so you can argue without me seeing. If it's not past your Bed Time yet I'll explain I'll put it in simple terms:- This thread is about a Commercial Director who would have nothing to do with building a stadium, buying a stadium. This thread and what you want to do is a part of a Football Club's business that has nothing to do with a Football Manager. You are going on about Facility management and the financial aspects of your stadium, again nothing to do with a Football Manager but as part of FM being game you are given an option to inquire on issues. You asked the board to Buy. The board have costed and agreed. The end. You dont like the finances of it. Tough!!! You are the Manager it's none of your business anymore. Now read slowly THIS IS FOOTBALL MANAGER a FOOTBALL MANAGING GAME. IT IS NOT DIRECTOR OF COMMERCIAL ACTIVITY If you want your bit added create a thread and put your point out in the open.
  3. You are talking BS!! It's better that a Football Manager game doesn't veer to far away from its role. The Chairmans Job not yours is to deal with the financial details on the Club You ask Chairman to build new stadium he does the costings then agrees(thats your bit done). It is not a part of a Football Managers job to decide if the Financial deal is ok. What planet do you live on? Managers are in charge on average 18 Months, stadiums will take longer to build, that's before locating a site, planning designing it if it's all done within Five years you'll be lucky. Where in all that should FM play a part in? PS: Read the title of the thread and the original post. Start your own thread on the topic you want to discuss.
  4. The commercial director thread title dumbo. Thats the financial side. You butted in talking about Stadium Building also nothing to do with the thread. And when does the Chairman say '' We have the costs of the Stadium'' its £100,000,000. ''Is that OK with you Manager''? Even though he'll likely be part of it for very little of it's existence or even the cutting of the tape. And ''next question Manager'' ''Do you think our deal with Coca Cola and Pukka Pies is suitable for this club'' ''shall we charge £3.50 or £5.00 ina mega deal offer''? This game is Football MANAGER. Nobody wants to be Football Stadium Architect, Football Pie seller, Football Business Manager.
  5. The noise from the crowd is accurate. I have mine on mute.
  6. Arsene Wenger may have had input possibly the dressing room and pitch. He would not have dealt with Emirates to sponsor it, the loans required to finance it, the Builders who built it, or negotiating with the authorities on planning permission. Arsenals board dealt with that and Arsene Wenger couldn't say no as it was going to affect his playing budget for the next 10 years(He also got a flat at Highbury) The game should allow good and bad decisions why shouldn't it? Do you want a perfect world in the game? The board are not you, you are the Manager. Anyway why did you request it then ? Surely you could of looked at your finances and judged from them whether you could buy a new stadium. The price of Pies, Shirts and Sponsorships have nothing to do with a Football Manager. Stadium Building doesn't. You cannot adjust the facilities budget. It will not be added so if you want a Building & Finance Sim then FM isn't the place to look.
  7. How do I delete them off my game? If I do it through the game it gets stuck on processing, If I do them via Steam they are still in my 'Installed Add-ons'' If I start a new save the leagues I wanted to delete are still there. I want to remove them as the game will still play the lower leagues and their Cup games even though I don't select them.
  8. What are you on about? You get a financial statement during the season you can see what sponsors pay and your income your progress or failure influences income. Are you interested in increasing the price of the Pies in the editor?
  9. As Manager is it any of your business? You requested something(Part of the game that allows you to do far more than a real life Manager would) They costed it and found it viable. It's then on their shoulders not yours. In reality a Manager wouldn't even be in charge in the time it takes to build the stadium. All your job is to manage the team. Football Commercial Director isn't the game, it's Football Manager.
  10. Really?? Most Clubs give the manager a playing budget and tell him to get on with it. The higher you go the less you deal with the financial side even players and contracts are out the Manager's hand. He says who he wants, who goes. Leaving all the negotiating to the board. The sole commercial role a Manager has is meeting and greeting the Sponsors . Training, coaching, and setting up tactics are all a Manager has to do well to stay in work.
  11. Is the game ever worth buying in the first month of release? You cannot really get a save going until Feb/March and the final edition, as you need to restart to include all the fixes that have been included. I find buying it early means you stop, start new saves continually just without committing to a longterm save. I'm currently on a longterm save in FM 17 9The longest FM save I've done) unless FM 18 is significantly different will not buy FM 18, my next purchase of FM will be FM 19 in March 2019. Or how I feel the finished version or FM 19.5.
  12. Crikey the topic was last posted in 7 years ago. And you brought it up to say that? Anyway if I drain a player to 0% will he drop dead?
  13. It's amazing the Internet you know. Look up Portugal and it's history, read the info on FM it's all there it's just what anyone answering you will do. Why when there is so much info at your fingertips do people still need answers to simple easy to find questions? Is it idleness, boredom or both? It's a game, your game do it yourself. I mean your only messing around what's the big deal?
  14. They would that doesn't mean the Manager who has nothing to do with me would sell so easily, the board as I was there wouldn't take the decision out my hand. £15,000 for two players of early twenties is a bargain. It seems if you match the value they'll go.
  15. They were ok and the players were the stars of the division in their position. I would have got far more for them than I paid, I knew Linfield and other Scottish/English league clubs were interested, for similar players when finances were worse I sold them for far more. AI Clubs are far more compliant in selling a player.
  16. Have you considered an Atlas or an Encyclopedia to see for yourself. Or that thing called Google, which has it's own maps Wikipedia and an obscene amount of stuff.
  17. After Four years at Dungannon I had produced a number of players with high potential and five star at my level. Financially we weren't to secure but sales were seeing us improve each season. From the start the Club has excellent training & youth facilities plus youth recruitment and created a astonishing level of regens born in Dungannon Pop:- 15,000. Season 1-3 I sell a number of to English championship clubs at between £40,000-£80,000. And in pre-season four a striker to Linfield for £60,000 all good prices and with lucrative clauses. Come midway season four I leave Dungannon and take over Linfield, knowing the star players at Dungannon I targeted two defenders who were among the best in the league. The centre back was bought for £2,500 and the Left back at £12,500. Considering I knew the Clubs finances were OK and I had six months previously I was offered £60,000 each by Scottish Premier Clubs (going to £80,000 broke off the deal). Why would they then take such a low offer? I found if you offer just the value or even £0 you can get whoever you want off lower clubs. If I'd stayed at Dungannon I'd have got £40,000x 2 easily. I try to be realistic with the game so don't go to hard on forcing players to stay when bigger clubs come calling. Which is also too easy to do, just ride it out for a few months and they become happy again. Will transfers be more difficult in FM 18?
  18. You wouldn't get any job if you want it that closely. Unless of course you are inundated with offers. The game is never real, and verges off reality the second you hit the spacebar. It's a game.
  19. Is it something your curious about?
  20. I've got brilliant regens, as a small Northern Irish Premiership Club, I have in four years. Produced one full international, three u 21's, one for the Republic, and four u19's. I have sold three on for a combined total of £250,000 to English Championship clubs they are on the fringe of those clubs with one now wanted by Premier League Club and have two more targeted expecting to fetch £150,000 soon. My facilities from start are excellent youth recruitment, good youth facilities and good training. I have employed good HOY and U18's. Perhaps it's your set-up t the club or you are just rubbish at development.
  21. It's Man United isn't it! Clynes a Liverpool player any supporter of those Clubs will understand why.
  22. I agree. I can't get to grips with many games. Should I enter their forum and whinge or play something else? I don't see half the stuff some here do. My games tend to follow a very realistic pattern, I've never taken a minnow to the CL. I take over a small club it's 50/50 whether I succeed, I don't care if I win a load or lose, thats football. But by and large it follows a normal route. I see realistic transfers, my tactics work in some leagues and fail elsewhere. I love Football playing FM is part of that, I watch the matches in Full match 3d. I cannot understand why some would by a Football game and have no interest in the sport. Some want the game to stuff graphics and progression of visual realism, and focus on the stats and business side of a FOOTBALL GAME. Role on proper stadiums and realistic animation so I can sit and watch a Football match on FM.
  23. I think this topic should be moved to the Medication thread as a treatment for Insomnia. It's certainly kept the Mods busy. If you wanna post it post it now!!
  24. During the season what changes the manager personality in the Season Preview screen? I gather Press Conferences are the main, but is there anything else? I've notice that your own personality can be more extreme than the AI Managers, I've gone from Determined to Spineless and now Casual, two labels never used to describe an AI manager. What will I need to say in future interviews to get back to determined or at least a positive label? How much impact does it have with getting Jobs? And as it's not visible when you are unemployed are you better being so than having a negative personality?

    Game crash

    Can the game be classed as abandoned if the PC crashes during a Match, it adds a bit of realism
