  1. We should have the option of doing this if the VAR doesn't go our way
  2. That was Man United in FM 18. They simply couldn't be beaten to the league. I managed it twice in a 12 season save with Arsenal. Both times I won the league by 1 point. They also won I think 7 or 8 champions leagues.
  3. According to Miguel Delaney, writer for the Independent, Man United have accepted bids from 8 different clubs for Matteo Darmian. The player and agent turned each one down either due to the wage packet or undesirable club. Just goes to show it absolutely happens to big clubs in real life not just FM. Same thing with Alexis Sanchez.
  4. I'm not so sure of the "effort" that EA have put into their audio. Oh wow, they added Lee Dixon in FIFA 19. But with the money they have it would be no sweat for them to add many more lines of commentary for different situations. That's really all it is, recording the lines and then associating them with actions that take place in-game. Using EA as the benchmark for what a massive studio can do is nonsense, because they put zero money back into their game.
  5. I agree, there would be an opening to abuse that, but that doesn't mean that youth players shouldn't be involved in mentoring. And besides, with how convoluted mentoring is now (in my opinion) it would still prevent people from jamming together mentoring groups since that just wouldn't work. I think the whole tutoring/mentoring system is deeply flawed and only made worse by the new system. I've never understood how a young player would take undesirable traits from their mentor. These are late teenagers/adults, in real life a young player would have the ability to discern what qualities might be beneficial to him to pick up from a senior player. If I'm say Callum Hudson Odoi and just for argument Higuaín is mentoring me. IRL Odoi would say ok, Higuain's movement and finishing are great, and his professional attitude is admirable, let me try to pick up what I can in those areas. It makes even less sense in PPMs. I could in theory see how a young players attitude can worsened if their mentor is less professional. If say a player was trying to learn everything they could from Ozil, I could see where IRL they might pick up some of his more lackadaisical tendencies. That's about all that makes sense to me though.
  6. when the wonderkid regen you paid almost nothing for does this in his 2nd game. The animation was smooth in the game, not sure why the highlight video stutters during the goal, kinda ruins it
  7. It would be funnier if they didn't have April Fool's right in the first inbox item. Would be funnier to draw it out a bit more and let players feverishly click on the transfer tab until realizing it's a joke.
  8. This couldn't be more true. I never look at CA/PA numbers, but it always ends up that my best and most consistent performers are simply average players attribute wise
  9. It's the classic "heart formation". Ever wonder why players do the silly heart gesture with their hands after a goal? No, it's not to show appreciation for the fans, it's actually in appreciation of this classic tactic!
  10. How about starting with regens that don't all look like Mesut Özil
  11. No I don't think so. His "Career Milestones" screen still shows him being at my club 2018 - _____ The only reason I noticed it was because I wanted him specifically to scout a player but he's not there. Could this just be a glitch?
  12. I signed a scout in 2018 and now he's gone from my staff list in 2020. On his profile it says he's a free agent, but there's no option for "approach to sign" or offer contract. In his staff history career milestones tab, his time at my club is still open ended with no date that he left. He is 72 yrs old, but no mention that he's retired. This is very weird. Is it possible staff might request a leave of absence that I didn't notice?
  13. You can just imagine the opposition players yelling and aggressively trying to "help" him to his feet.
  14. Had a similar thing a few weeks ago. I forget where, but somewhere in here there is a setting that fixed it. Somewhere in these links:
  15. Funny how they never played Hudson-Odoi until Bayern came calling. "Oh wait a second, Bayern want the lad? Well then he must have some talent. Blimey, he's been under our noses all this time!"
  16. Looks more like a wide player to me. 13 off the ball is not great for a shadow striker. Honestly though would really come down to performance. Plenty of players perform well in positions they're not suited for
  17. Such is life at Ajax. The unfortunate reality is that no ambitious and highly talented player can reach their goals at Ajax. Like others have said I have found with small clubs that it's best to take the first good offer. Otherwise you get trapped in bargaining on a price with the player and it's always extremely less than what you're hoping for.
  18. That didn't really cover his question though. I have seen the same thing, a player taking a much lower contract offer after he'd rebuffed my much better contract. That is simply not logical. I could see if the lower offer was from one of his favored clubs, but it wasn't. I could even understand if he had favored personnel on that club, but still wasn't the case. The only way to explain it is that there's a lower bar for negotiations between AI clubs and players. This is a flaw. In OP's case, why on earth would the player take City's offer if much lower and not as much recent success, and also no favored personnel to speak of? There is no other criteria (or at least not transparent criteria) that would explain it.
  19. Just a guess, but could be tied to your club's reputation which I'm sure is very low if you're non-league.
  20. I lost 8-2 as Arsenal against Man Utd. A pitiful FM version of the same scoreline from a a few years ago.
  21. Ahh yes, the dance of the sugar plum fairy! A rare SI Easter egg. Lucky you!
  22. Last season Marco Asensio missed a game because of an ingrown hair from shaving his legs. It got infected and prevented him from pulling up his socks. ---- ^^^^^^^^^^^^^ and holy cow man, no one needs to see that!!! A simple "yes, blisters can be bad" would've sufficed.
  23. When I first played FM in FM15 in my first season I took Arsenal to the CL finals against Barcelona and lost 3-0. I haven't replayed a game since (I realized there's no point as it ruins a save), but that one time I did replay it. It took me less than 10 times to get a win against them. The original loss I was absolutely outclassed. It had that feel of some FM games where there's nothing you can do. The opposition is just too good. That's just one example that completely disproves your argument. This was a game I had no business of winning. And still I managed to squeak a win past Barca in I think 5 or 6 tries. What is your response to that?
  24. Geubbels is an absolute monster on FM. On FM 18 I bought him despite being a bit leery of his attributes. Very low bravery and not the best mentals in general, but holy cow the guy is a goal machine.
  25. There is a glitch that I noticed last year. It was an EFL Cup game and in regular time I'd used all 3 of my subs (still had my 4th for extra time). Towards end of regular time one player got injured and had to be removed, leaving me with 10 men until extra time. At the start of extra time though I was unable to use the extra sub to fill the "vacant" spot of the injured player. Just a warning that it may be good to still hold your 3rd sub until extra time.
