  1. Finally tried it in full screen and yes, starts up perfectly fine. Should I post a bug report about the windowed loading? Seems like it might be my hardware
  2. Starting up FM20 takes me a few times before it work. The intro screens are all glitchy and sometimes freeze. I'm playing in windowed mode if that could be part of it?
  3. I know what he means. You can have a 21 yr old wonderkid still only "valued" at 30 mill or whatever it might be. In reality any team with him on the books will be looking for 80 million plus. It's impossible in FM to convey that to the player. It's either agree to sell him for a fraction of his actual worth, or risk upsetting him and ALSO selling him for much less.
  4. WHERE IS MIKE DEAN ON THIS LIST??? Once again FM fails in the reality department
  5. I had the awful habit for a while where in the pre-match screen I'd make some changes and because of bad click and drags would move the GK to an outfield position. I caught it before starting the match most of the time, when I didn't it was always full on panic. I maintain that the clicking/dragging on that screen isn't the best. Kind of hard to snap players into the correct positions.
  6. As my save progresses I love to give players (and opposing managers) nicknames. Sometimes they're funny, sometimes it's just to shorten names. Mourinho has gotten several nicknames for me over the years. None of which I can type here
  7. Philippe Mexes bicycle kick? Benjamin Pavard's WC belter? As many have said, these are professional players. If you put them on a pitch with a pub team they'd run rings around everyone and WOULD be doing insane stuff regularly. An 8 first touch at professional level is for your average person more like 18-20 first touch.
  8. True, but it's worth pointing out that de Ligt/de Jong definitely wanted to go to top leagues. Would they have been happy to stay at Ajax another year? Possibly, but I don't think it was just a case of Ajax looking to cash in.
  9. I love how rare really great newgens are in your academy. Most youth intake players are barely worth setting up training for, let alone signing them up. But when you do get the rare 5 star recruit then do everything you can to ensure he makes it to first team it feels pretty great
  10. Very cool, love seeing what professional players think of FM. I'm sure there are dozens more that are FM fanatics.
  11. As an Arsenal fan I must admit, we are pretty OP in the past few years. It takes very little work to win the title within the first 3 years. Also seems like Arsenal get a much more significant budget than they would IRL. I know Pepe was a massive layout, but the net spend was still relatively low.
  12. I've seen things like this quite often actually. In my saves it usually happens when a player demands a transfer. If the club is foolish and try to milk as big a transfer fee as possible, they'll end up rejecting several excellent bids hoping for something even better. Then the player gets mad and they end up selling to the next decent offer that comes in. I've seen it with Asensio - bought him for 20 million. Happened to me with Federico Chiesa as well. He wanted to go to Madrid, but I'd rejected a measly 60 million offer from them (he's worth much much more). By that point though they'd had enough and he had to settle for Monaco who offered 40 million with FAR less wages. Kind of a buggy thing in the game IMO. While you can see the logic - all realistic deals break down due to stubbornness from the selling club, so the club and player is forced to accept a 2nd tier club. Doesn't happen IRL though really.
  13. Generally I'll start by clearing all the coaching duties and then set them all myself. You can do this by going to the Training screen, then at the far right at the top selecting 'Coaches' From there click on "Edit Coaching Assignments" at the top right. Here you can clear everything and reset yourself. If you "ask assistant to assign" he'll likely put back the same duties as before. I try not to have each coach on more than 2 duties, I think it spreads them too thin and eventually will get an inbox item "this coach is coaching too many categories". The more coaches you have in each category the more stars you get (also depends on the quality of coaching). If you have a small staff then focus on the areas you want to make the most of (possession or defending, etc.) This screen used to be up front last year, they've hidden it behind another button which I'm not crazy about this year, but works the same way.
