  1. Any relation to the Belgian international Lorenzo Staelens? If so, then SI better hope he doesn't see this, or if he does, that he's not a homophobe

    something wrong wih the transfer market

    You're being disingenuous about Asensio. The few saves I've played he always gets transfer listed by Madrid, and goes for about that - 25-40 million. So if you want to make transfer market comparisons it might help to be honest about what you're talking about.

    Shock ‘man enjoys FM18’

    It is a solid edition. The scouting is still annoying to me, making it a chore instead of something you can do at your leisure. Other than that no big complaints. Ive seen some amazing goals this year too. Last night a regen player I have was at the byline near the left post and backheeled a cross to his teammate at the far post. It hit the bar, but I've never seen anything like that before. Intricate build up play, great long shots, etc. Much more variety this year which is great to see.

    Does The 'Squad Win Bonuses' Matter?

    A side question to this is, are those season bonuses based off of their bonus requirements in their contract? So if one player had a bonus of 100k if we win the league, would it increase that 100k by some arbitrary number if I increased the overall team win bonuses? If they don't have any preexisting bonuses in their contract, would it give all non-bonus players a flat bonus across the board? I know these things don't really matter, just curious.

    How about using slave labor to build stadiums? That's good clean fun that everyone can get behind

    Man U Always Dominant

    Mourinhos base tactics in-game and I think also his high motivation contribute to this. For whatever reason Pep's tactics in FM just don't seem to work.
  7. One thing I do is if a youth player is crying about training he gets released immediately. Oh what's that you dumb 16 yr old? You don't like your new tutor? Then I hope you'll like your new career!
  8. To be fair I am seeing much more variety in goals this year. I've seen really fantastic short passing leading to goals with flicks and everything, players actually score from those long runs once in a while now too. Yes, winger to winger goals happen a lot, it can't be denied. It looks to me like one of the issues is that the ME makes it far too easy for wide players to drive inside when they're on the shoulder of the defense. A dominant wide player in FM is able to make those angled runs in on goal from a wide position into their nearest post. If their opposite wide player hoofs it in, there's a good chance the fullback/CB won't pick him up and he's right there for a tap-in. Sometimes they're almost inside the goal when they score. That said, I think when you're looking for it you notice it more. Take an actual tally of the types of goals you score and I think you'll see much more variety than you think.

    Best ever Regen

    Actually this was the regen with 82 million value. A very expensive signing I got from Liverpool. Hes insanely good

    Best ever Regen

    I signed this regen from Barca for 3.5 million when he was 20. I still don't understand why they sold him. He wasn't listed as unhappy at the club, he had years on his contract and had the wonderkid tag at the time. He hasn't quite performed to what I was expecting. It's mainly his consistency. He still has runs of a few games where he's unstoppable. Also 82 million pounds is one of the highest market values I've seen
  11. Have your current club put out a statement saying "we wont stop Ermant from leaving if Soulless FC come in for him", like the Brodge has just done with Celtic
  12. My strategy now is if there's a player I'm desperate to sign I try to get in done outside the window. This way like others have said you have more time to work with and less competition. I still always keep an eye out during the window though because there seems to be more crazy deals to be had in FM18 than previous years. Just by keeping an eye on transfer listed players I've poached a handful of wonderkids for 2-4 million from mega clubs. I'm not talking borderline wonderkids, but ballon d'or potential players. This seems kind of broken this year. I bought a regen from Barca for 3.5 million and he's now the best AMC in the world. At the time I bought him his mood was happy, he had no information stating he wanted to leave. He was happy at his club. Why Barca would let him go for so little was baffling. Not something I'd seen before.
  13. what is the quality of your players like? In premier league I had players scoring those occasionally
  14. Just curious what skin you're using? I like how the attribute numbers are big for easier viewing
  15. That's interesting that the rules aren't explicit for this scenario. As it went, I finished regular time with 10 men, I was just hoping to make it to extra time when I *should've* been able to bring back on my 11th man. That was not the case though. I was able to sub out one of my 10 remaining players, but was unable to bring on anyone for the "vacant spot". Very odd, logic would dictate that the 4th sub could be used to bring on a player without taking one off I would think.
