  1. International management selection has always been fiddly on FMM. When players get injured, you have to remember to add them back in the squad again. Also when a player has suddenly risen to international quality, it's not always easy to spot them with the scouting system. I'd prefer it if the game (your international coach perhaps) automatically found what it considered to be the top 40 or so available international players to help you chose your squad but with the option of selecting players outside that top 40.
  2. I've found that offering a big release clause (where appropriate) can get players, certainly younger ones, to accept a lower wage. Only problem with this is that down the line they can start to demand a move later to a bigger club.
  3. Ridiculously harsh sackings are a way of life in Football Manager!! Agree with others that for teams expected to atruggle, players are too quick to lose faith. Early underachieving moaning should only happen with teams expected to win league/division.
  4. So what happened next with Messi? Chelsea bought him for £37m in the January window with no rival bids. He then went on to score 19 goals in 23 games and help Chelsea win the Europa League and just miss out on the Premier League to Tottenham on goal difference. Bargain!! Barca didnt seem to miss Messi too much though and won La Liga by 2 points over Real Madrid and also beat Madrid in the Champions League final. A win-win for Barca and Chelsea then!! If only real life was so simple!
  5. On Apple Macs/ devices, you can save to iCloud in game.
  6. Ah right. I should have said it happened during my Oldham save and the date was November 2016 not Jan 2017.
  7. Ok cheers Jamie. I don't have a start of the season save but I've uploaded my current save to the FMH folder anyway so you can have a look if you wish.
  8. So Barcelona second season in - 16/17, Mourinho takes over as manager. Barcelona (defending Spanish champions) buy Hulk (World Cup flop in real life of course). Hulk takes Messi's place even though Messi was in-game world player of the year for 15/16. By mid Jan, Messi has not started a league game (strained relationship with Mourinho) and begins complaining and asks to be transfer listed and is. Expressions of interest from other big clubs? None!! All very odd!!
  9. I think it might help if real-time speed was labelled realtime rather than slow or normal etc...
  10. That info was from your official Twitter feed. Football Manager (@FootballManager) tweeted at 10:06pm - 16 Nov 15: @emileklof The Air is not compatible with the upcoming release of Touch (
  11. It's the owners of the Air 1 who might be in trouble from what I've read.
  12. Yes this has been asked for before. I think they're looking into it. One thing I think needs tightening up is the player interest filter under player search. I find that if you use the default 'interested' then you're going to miss out on players who might well sign for you but are hidden in the search. The filter should only rule out the definite 'not interesteds' I've got a strange situation where an aging unsigned Wayne Rooney is interested (and he shows up as interested in player search) in signing for my Championship side Preston but won't come because of my limited finances. Yet other well known old stagers are filtered out as uninterested yet will sign for what I offer.
  13. Playing out of form first team and spare rotational players in reserve matches occasionally seems essential in this game. In fact it can be quite a chore having to keep making some first team players available for the reserves then remembering to cancel that instruction when they're match fit and you want to play them in the next game. It's particularly annoying when your now match fit star striker coming back from injury plays a reserve game just before the big match you wanted to play him in!!
