  1. No we're not- the first picture shows his existing contract. Basically the agent has asked for an improved deal but that improved deal is actually worse than what his client already has. Added lolz for the agents demand that his payment be met in full for smooth talks then demanding zero £.
  2. That is fine for you but just because you do it doesn't mean the AI should- most clubs don't turn over that number IRL.
  3. A turnover of 10-15 players a season is highly unusual, not sure why you'd expect the AI to be doing that.
  4. I'm still playing FM17 and have somehow only just discovered the 'top transfer target' function. I'm aiming to sign a central defender from Southampton and ha multiple bids rejected (he's valued at £11m but they've rejected deals worth over £40m) so I'm trying to unsettle him. It seems to be working so far and I'm now looking to get one of players to big us up in the press. My question is what sort of player I should ask? Someone who has a good relationship with me so would be happier to help? The captain or vice captain? The left back who is an established Scottish international (the player I'm after is also Scottish)? Or the player who is currently unhappy at the lack of depth in defense (wondering if the fact I'm targeting soemone to add to this depth might make him happy)? Or am I over thinking it and it doesn't really matter?
  5. On FM17 the players came across as dumb as bricks in the interaction. 'I can't believe you're refusing to let star player X leave- it isn't fair to stand in the way of his career.' 'Selling him will make the team worse and I don't want that.' 'Oh yeah I hadn't thought selling our best player would make us worse, I'm fine with it now.'
  6. I'd also gamble that IRL nobody is paying 60m for a left back in the SPL.

    How to Pay Referees?

    It has been a feature in other games- Ultimate Soccer Manager allowed you to offer bungs and similar stuff.
  8. This is how it feels to me- I've stopped even considering purchasing the game before February now- usually it means it is both cheaper and my saves don't get thrown out of whack by mid season match engine changes.
  9. Is that still there? I'm still on 17 and found the weird 'second ball headers are CCC's' odd in there, so disappointed if that still exists.
  10. It kind of is SI's job if they want people to enjoy the game they are playing. The game needs to still be enjoyable and accessible without needing to read 10 page threads on here or spend 30 minutes watching matches on full.

    Is it time to delete interviews?

    Still on FM17 but had one last night that made me think of this thread. My Brighton team grabbed a last minute equaliser v title rivals Man U. The post match press conference consisted of three questions- one whether I agreed with Liverpool putting a player on the transfer list and another about how pleased I was about a player out on loan playing well and if I was going to be recalling him (a question I get asked every few weeks for some reason).

    Is it time to delete interviews?

    I'd also like to see the relationships you have with journalists actually mean something- ie if you keep no commenting or being aggressive with them then they might give less favourable coverage. It makes zero difference as far as I can tell if a journalist is positive, negative or indifferent to you.
  13. Excellent. It did make me chuckle when my striker scored a hat-trick in a 3 goal win and there was one fan saying 'thought he was pretty poor actually.'
  14. Has the social feed moved on from the '2 positives 1 negatives' for good performance and '1 positive 2 negatives' for bed performances? And have fans stopped claiming our promotion bid is over in November because we've dropped to 7th?
