  1. Anyone playing with Parma? I got relegated first season but since i was above the relegation zone for so long (dropped below on the last match day) I got the keep the job. So now I've rebuilt the squad and halfway through Serie B I'm top of the league. Ivan Sunjic, Croatian player from Dinamo best signing so far. 600k €uro and did well already in Serie A. before the drop. Have you got any tips if I restart with Parma later how I should do to avoid relegation first season

    One Door Closes, Another Andorra Opens

    Would never have the patience to play this way myself but really nice to follow this kind of journey. Massive results in Europe last season, I hope you could do equally good this season. You've earned it after all these years!

    [FM17] Northern Football - IFK Luleå

    Well I'm Swedish and it's quite easy: because nature. The climate in the North makes it really hard and expensive to get a good natural grass pitch. Almost impossible for smaller clubs. Bandy and Ice Hockey are also big sports in Sweden. Not as popular as football but a lot of kids in my region (Close to Stockholm) play football in the summer and/or bandy/ice hockey in the winter. In the northern part it's been much easier to play ice hockey spontaneuously with your friends than football. And in the South the opposite. In recent year syntethic grass has helped Swedish teams a lot so they can play all year but it's still quite new and isn't available for everyone. Also there is a big discussion in Swedish football about this syntethic surface, but I'm not gonna take that now. But all in all it's because our climate.
  4. Nice to see someone doing the whole pyramid! I have a friend who's playing in the 9th tier and he said he's gonna buy the game (he usually don't play FM) if this database comes out.
  5. Been following this since the start, nice to see you stay in the Eredivisie!
  6. Can't you buy a ROW-key from here: http://www.allkeyshop.com/blog/buy-football-manager-2018-cd-key-compare-prices/ ? Approx 35 €uro for those. (40 USD, 60 NZD).
  7. NIce fusion! Gonna give this a try when I'm getting bored (more likely sacked) of my two main saves. But it could take some weeks (or days... )
  8. Ok I looked a little closer at the attributes and in the attack Spano should play as an advanced forward and Platje should be best as a deep lying forward or trequartista. DLF and AF should maybe work? In the midfield Cyprien really should play advanced playmaker and Valdivias work rate 17, stamina 16, natural fitness 14 should be good for a box-to-box. Only 8 off the ball and finishing though...N'daw is a beast as ball winning midfielder with approx 15 in every attribute. Olsen isn't good at all really. Should probably use someone else instead. In my head Platje can come deep and get the ball and Spano is more attacking near the box. Cyprien handles the transportation from midfield to the attackers. Valdivia support him from behind sometimes. N'daw handle the defensive part. Therefore I put the last one att central midfielder - automatic so he could lurk around between N'daw and the other two. But not really sure on how to use the last MC. Album with the attackers Platje, Spano - N'daw, Valdivia and Cyprien with highlighted attributes and Olsen/Moore/Bourigeaud/Chah/Gbamin: http://imgur.com/a/i4AAf
  9. Hello all tactic geniuses! I've got fired two times att the same save now. I've been hired as Lens manager now and it feels like my last chance at this save now. I started with Málaga. With Málaga I used this tactic: - A tactic that should fit Málaga and it was good at FM15. A bunch of team instructions and some player instructions aswell. The board wanted me to finish mid-table but I struggled in the bottom and got fired. Then I went to Bari and used this tactic: - I did the formation/roles after looking at the strengths of my current squad. I also did well in the transfer window, or at least I thought so...Didn't use many team instructions or any player instructions at all because I got a little lost with Málaga. Ended up in a total disaster. Media prediction was 8th and I had like 12 points after 15 games and got kicked out... Now I've got a new chance, this time with Lens in Ligue 2, France. They are struggling to avoid releagation and are just two points above the relegation zone with 14 games to go. This time I want to play with two forwards since it hasn't worked at all for me with just one striker. It's just a shame that i don't have so many good strikers in the team...My squad: After some help I'm here at the moment: Platje best roles:: False Nine, Trequartista, Poacher Spano best roles: Target man, Poacher, Advanced forward - Should I play with one Target and one Poacher? Cyprien best rolesa: Deep lying playmaker, Advanced playmaker, Roaming playmaker Valdivia best roles: Ball winning midfielder, Box to box midfielder, Roaming playmaker Olsen best roles: Deep lying playmaker, Advanced playmaker, Central midfielder N'daw best roles: Ball winning midfielder, Defensive midfielder, Anchor man - Advanced playmaker, Box to box, Central midfielder and Ball winning midifielder? My fullbacks both wants to play as limited full backs. Should i go with that? My goal is to avoid relegation and I won't have any wingers to help my full backs in the defence. Or should I use them as wing backs instead because of the same reason (no wingers in the attack?) Do you have any other suggestions? Can't buy anyone until the season is over. I'm above the wage budget aswell. Just one DL and one ML/AML. Just one good striker and one decent striker...

    Anyone bought from GK4A and got the key yet? Or information on when the key will be sent? I mean I just bought the game 35 minutes ago so I guess I'll have to wait some hours but do you think I will have it tonight?
