  1. Hmmm that's an alarming recent form. Maybe try to make some adjustments with one of your wide attacking players? Having an inside forward paired with a Treq and a Winger can do wonders in that kind of system.
  2. Say "Thank you, thank you so much" to the referees and then say it wasn't sarcastic in the press conference.
  3. Last year's intake looks promising... The new analytical points you make give a great insight into tactical thinking. The recruitement has been very efficient as well, we can already see a very specific club DNA.
  4. Oh, thank God you picked it up after the break. I got a bit nervous after the PSG and Lille results. Your persistence in attacking football is nothing but admirable!
  5. This feature alone is tempting me to buy FM20, I always focus quite a lot on Youth Development and this adds a new level of realism to that aspect of the game. Those two central midfielders might be the key to early survival.
  6. I see what you mean about the nature of this save, I projected my own preferences here, I tend to stay at clubs for very long, unless I get sacked or the the board bums me out with bad decisions.
  7. This is a keeper. I would like to see you taking this club to Nordic and then European glory.
  8. I really like this idea. Unlucky in the playoffs, they're always tough to go through. Let's hope the 4 star kid from the Intake delivers soon.
  9. Similar start to the San Marino save. It's quite often to start like this, especially if you're trying to play football "the proper way". Things will be a lot better once the club starts producing players that can follow your possesion based plan. I hate the term Tiki Taka, even though I loved Pep's Barca. I'm doing a Youth Challenge on FM18 and I had to re-adjust my playing style in order to survive in the second division of Dutch football with Katwijk, because the quality of the squad is terrible compared to the rest of the teams. Having the ball in our feet didn't benefit us at al
  10. You have to write it down yourself by adding a nickname to each player.
  11. Love this! Even though I play FM since 2006, your FM19 career taught me about scouting extensively, not in quantity, but in quality. I'm in the Prem with Basingstoke Town (Dafuge Challenge) and with our financies being rather bad for a Prem team, this enabled me to create a healthy team financially and start building from there the whole club. This happened because my transfers were really thought out, so they ended up fitting great with the rest of the squad, helping us to stay up and sell a few of them for major profits. I like what you did with the staff members as well.
  12. FM17 in terms of scouting and match engine. I really like the newest additions though about manager-player interactions, player groups within the team and training. I agree with @Dagenham_Dave, FM20 features along with FM17 gameplay would be a lifetime game for me. I played FM17 until two weeks ago and gave FM18 a try. Not bad, but the UI and the 2D Classic turn me off big time.
  13. First of all, congrats for an amazing career once again. Very inspiring stuff. I haven't read every post very carefully because I was late to the party this year, but I think you overachieved quite a few times so far. Especially your Vitesse most important players haven't been "world beaters" in the sense that they didn't have those crazy Attributes you see on Man.City or Man.Utd newgens. It must be very rewarding. Will the next manager choice influence your style of managing? For example the Brazilian coach will do something crazy ala Thiago Motta? Will the German guy play a gegenpressin
