    Rain rain go away

    I kept wanting to raise this..... but then kept forgetting Anyway, every game i played it felt like it was always raining. This has been going on for a few seasons but i never recorded how many games. So i just had a quick look through and i have counted from the season just gone and out of 63 games; 42 games it was rain or drizzle. 3 matches of pure sunshine on 22/8, 30/8 and 29/9. 16 days of cloudy weather with sun behind and 2 days of pure cloud I manage Arsenal and i know British weather is pretty crap but; This seems pretty disproportionate to me. The number of rainy games is for too much. Not one game of sun after September????? In one period from the 19/12 to 23/02 i played 19 games. 18 of these it rained or drizzled and one was pure cloud. My players didnt see the sun on a match day for 2 months. The poor lads must have been living down the fake tan salon. Anyway, could this be a bug? Kind regards

    Cant make half time talk

    I've have this issue too mate, many times. It seems to happen if you go into your tactics and the halftime whistle is blown. Just avoid going into tactics when they are about to blow for halftime
  3. I had a quick search and couldnt find this topic or one that answered it. Just a quick question. Has signing regens been made a lot harder this year on fm2018? I am arsenal and only 1 regen has even discussed a contract with me. Just wondering if it has been made harder. Cheers
  4. John, i have had this same issue. I have uploaded my save game; ftp://ftp-public@ftp.sigames.com/fm/game-save/arsenal.fm As you will see i offered him to clubs, with no bids and he got cranky. I told him we needed to cash in on him, (i did this without seeing your tip on here to do it) and he didnt respond positively. Also you will see I made an offer to buy Rugani from Juve, which was a direct swap for Sanchez. Juve accepted and Rugani accepted contract only for Sanchez to reject the contract from Juve. I dont know why he rejected, there could be an innocent reason such as a lower salary, however; Sanchez was transfer listed at the time He has stated he wont sign a contract as he will leave We have fallen out due to previous conversation. Juve are playing Champs League which Arsenal are not. His 2 favoured personnel are Vidal and Isla who have also both played for Juve and potentially would put in a good word about the club (as surely players in real life speak to their mates if they are going to move) Personally i can not see any realistic identifiable reason why Sanchez would stay. I am stuck. There seems to be no way of getting rid of him. I even made an offer to Man City to have a direct swap, Sanchez for Brahim Diaz which they rejected. Anyway, hope my save helps to identify an issue. Sanchez can sit in my under 23s for the year
  5. everyone has already explained this, it is an "attribute dump" as i like to call it. even though every attribute is not 20 the total sum of all of the attributes together equates to a greater CA of 190. So the attributes are decreasing to fall in line with a CA of 190 that you have selected. The attributes will decrease until they match a CA of 190 and then will stop. They will then increase a small amount to match the CA of 200. An easy way for you to understand this is go to one of your youth players in game. Reduce his CA by 20 points, for example, 130 to 110. Over the next week or 2 keep checking his attributes, you will see they decrease. This is so they match the CA of 110.

    Time to finish a season

    i've been playing since the day the beta got released and have managed to reach Dec 10th of first season, English start date and club
  7. I was thinking the exact same thing about better feedback from scouts in relation to next opposition last month. But i then felt like i was being lazy by not putting in enough effort haha. We can pretty much get all the info we need if we look at the scout report in depth, obviously not everything we may want but enough to know players to target and ways to play. It is pretty tiresome having to do it each time however so i understand what your saying. I have a proposition along the same lines as yourself, kinda.... I think we should have a teem meeting a couple of days before each game. There could be a new staff role aptly named "analyst" who will tell us keys things about the other team, such as, blah blah is in scintillating form and very confident at the mo (mesut ozil), blah blah is struggling and could be targetted (eden hazard), their team generally set up in a ? way against teams like us, blah loves to get on the ball and control the game, their wingers are rapid, their cbs like to be aggressive and close down, yada yada yada. Then in the meeting their could be a few links to specific previous games showing small excerpts of play by the opposition showing how they attack or defend or whatever And then finally you can give feedback to your team saying stuff like, "do not let douglas costa dribble, if he gets the ball, make sure he knows your there", "their team are struggling bad at the mo, get an early goal and put the pressure on them even more" I would like something like this. I appreciate it is probably very hard to do, but i would like
  8. The ability to tell your players that only 1 player should close down at any one time
  9. During my matches more and more recently I keep seeing examples of players either moving or not which i feel is totally unrealistic compared to real life and i feel this may be due to the player role i have assigned them. However, the situations in which these unrealistic movements are happening should not be effected by the player roles because any player with half a brain cell would make the movement or not make it. For example, i had my ST 5 yards inside my own half by the halfway line, he has 18 acceleration and 15 pace. The oppositions 2 defenders are 15 yards inside my half, moving and facing toward my goal. So as you can probably imagine my ST is basically all alone onside by being in his own half and all i need is one of my players to boot a half mediocre pass upfield for him to use his pace to chase and be in on goal. Low and behold one of my players actually players a better than mediocre pass for him to chase on to..... well you think he would. My ST for no clear reason decides to walk towards this balls and after a while start to jog. However the chance has gone because obviously the opposition have all sprinted back and shut him down. I literally can never imagine seeing this in real life as anyone with half a brain cell would sprint to the ball, god i can even imagine Balotelli sprinting. I have so many more examples but cba writing them out. I have started to get very frustrated
  10. I feel there are too many goals directly after me or the ai score. Literally i score and then they go down the other end from kick off and score. Or they score against me and i go down the other end and score. I know this does happen IRL but too often in the game i feel. Also at the start of every game there is either a shot on target or a chance created immediately. Gets a bit tedious
