  1. No charity angle. Disappointing, as it's reduced to being just an advert - pay Guinness World Records, invent a "record" to beat, watch the money roll in.
  2. Jamie Vardy in lower leagues

    If PA was much more difficult to divine, then it could be more liberally sprinkled around. If no one spots a high PA player then they will footle about in the lower leagues unless they get their big break. Or maybe have a "late bloomer" attribute. If a player has this and they are at 95% of their current PA at then add 40 points to their PA - give them chances between age 25 and 28 to do this. No one knows who the late bloomers are in advance, so apply randomly with a low chance of application.
  3. I'm thinking of newgens - duh!
  4. You might be falling prey to random number seeding. A computer can't come up with truly random numbers so if you save and reload then exactly the same thing can occur in the very early stage of the reload. Once you start clicking around doing stuff then the pattern will be broken and apparently random stuff happens again.
  5. How big is your sample?
  6. Self imposed rules to make FM harder?

    Hire a director of football and put him in charge of all signings and contracts. In a flash, you are now subject to the same squadbuilding AI as all the other teams.
  7. "Not going to bed until we lose"

    I only really hit a late session if there's a chance of getting to the end of the season, especially if there's the prospect of the trophy or two in the offing.
  8. The Summer Transfer Window

    My goalie was unhappy when we sold my star midfielder (the money was ridiculous though) and he wanted quality signings. I signed a better goalie and he was happy, but not for long!
  9. I would imagine he doesn't. This sort of thing should be tool tipped: "Hire Ass Man for X"
  10. Steam

    Found this by accident after getting hold of my daughter's old laptop after we got her a new one for Christmas. The option changes to "Stream" rather than "Play" (although you can still install). Works very well.
  11. Read his post again and grab the right end of the stick next time.
  12. Not taking the Michael, but does anyone really give two hoots about the achievements? Also, how is having a striker not score for ten games an achievement? Or, conceding a late goal? Makes no sense.
