  1. Potentially £3.3M for a 16-year old from the Norwegian league? That's a decent fee for a prospect, not as high as Odegaard's fee to Real but still ok. Remember, the scandinavian leagues generally accept much lower transfer fees than the big countries and every club is a selling club, especially when the likes of United come knocking.
  2. [Scotland] (Official) Data Issues

    According to twitter he's no longer at Kilmarnock, signed for Troon in August.
  3. In my save Chelsea were relegated in something like 2025 or so. They tried to save themselves by appointing Shevchenko as manager, but all he managed was a 7th place in the Championship the next season and he was let go.
  4. The attitude that this is not a big problem because it doesn't lead to a lot of goals against is to my mind flawed as at least myself I look at this as a simulation more than a game. A simulation is supposed to immerse you and suspend your disbelief and the only way of doing this is by staying as true to reality as possible. If it is impossible to recreate that most basic of defensive tactics, two banks of four in a zonal system then to me suspension of disbelief is shattered. The game then becomes a hunt not for what would work tactically in real life but what will work in the match engine, realism be damned. So in conclusion, the OPs question of whether there IS a way of getting closer to the typical 442 is what matters, not whether the "default behavior" of wingers in the game actually leads to goals conceded.
  5. The non-fixing of the frankly completely unrealistic way that wingers and central midfielders defend in FM17 is unfortunately a dealbreaker for me. Sorry, like the game in almost all other aspects but this just does not feel like anything resembling real football to me.
  6. England vs Iceland - 8pm ITV

    Lagerbäck still has never lost to England!
  7. England vs Iceland - 8pm ITV

    I still think Iceland have been brilliant. Absolute masterclass in how you acheive with limited skill but excellent organization.
  8. England vs Iceland - 8pm ITV

    Ragnar Sigurdsson has been a giant so far. Echoes of Glenn Hysen.
  9. England vs Iceland - 8pm ITV

    What a tackle.
  10. England vs Iceland - 8pm ITV

    I just love how Iceland plays the 4-4-2. Perfectly organised, everyone doing their job.
  11. England vs Iceland - 8pm ITV

    Pathetic dive, Alli. Why no yellow card?
  12. England vs Iceland - 8pm ITV

    Alli keeps going on runs but no balls forward for him yet.
  13. England vs Iceland - 8pm ITV

    Lagerbäck still has never lost to England. Will that streak really continue? With ICELAND?
  14. England vs Iceland - 8pm ITV

    Iceland are brilliant at long throws. Second goal this tournament they score that way.
  15. Northern Ireland are through if Turkey doesn't win 4-0
