  1. This is great and I've been playing around with something very similar with my rbl side. I've struggled with replicating the away setup where he would sacrifice and striker for another midfielder, I've not been able to get the extra stability and counter attacking threat utd would pose (arsenal away springs to mind). How would adapt the tactics to achieve this?
  2. By fluke I've just found it, this has been bugging me for 3 days and as a soon as I post I find the answer For switch players if you click on the player and then press R shoulder by a menu will pop up, for release it will be there, for shortlist that will be there as well
  3. Hi all Recently started.playing my FM on my switch instead of pc/laptop. I can't for the life of me find the following 2 options. How to release a player on a month to month contract and how to add a player to my shortlist. TIA
  4. RBL in Germany has been a go to for me for a few years now, money to build, some good youngsters, a giant to overthrow who will keep taking players away from you and a few other challengers in Dortmund etc to compete with for 2nd place in the first few seasons. It's been a fun save for me recently.

  6. Sorry beardymouse but I'm with Davehanson on this, I don't know if disadvantaged is how I'd put it but the way they announce now and the pre order deal thing makes me and others feel like I want to pre order the game now whilst I'm getting some money off. However I dont feel as though I have all the information to make an informed decision yet. I can of course wait but I'll have to pay more for that. SI knows that some people may not order the game if they feel the new features aren't up to much, so instead they offer a pre order incentive without too much information to almost try and tip the balance for some of those undecided. It makes people feel as though they should make a decision now before the offer expires. Don't get me wrong, nobody is putting a gun to my head and it's only a saving of a few quid but people will see it like that. I think it's mildly exploitative at most, but tbf not much different to what a lot of other developers are doing these days. In terms of the features I'm disappointed not to see any expansion to online play, would love to see that, but I'm hoping for a few more videos before the deadline of key new features such as dynamics, because as it stands as someone who has played since cm2 I've become frustrated with the lack of real innovation in the last few years and I'm not so sure I'm ready to buy it just yet.
  7. Hi all My suggestion is based on just my thoughts and feelings about where the game is at now and how/where I would like to see it develop in the future. It's also a little about how I've begun to lose the bug for playing career every year and how I've found myself losing the interest to play. I've played some great online games with friends recently, custom DBs and other things and it's been great but as players in our late 20s early 30s with kids, jobs etc we find it difficult to maintain a long term online save. However when I have been able to go online and play against real people I've felt the bug again and I long for the ability to put my skills to the test against a wider range of people in a more seamless and organised manner. So... my suggestion would be for SI to look at how other games now have really started to tap into the world of multiplayer and to try and take FM online more. I know people will say you can go on the forum and organise a game and I know people will say they've done this before with FM Online and it didn't work BUT I think worldwide server based multiplayer, being able to load up and instantly play against others has become a staple of the modern game and to just ignore this aspect or leave it as it is I think could become detrimental to the game in the future. Again as I said before this is just based on my opinion and nothing else. Take the first person shooter as an example. 10/15 years it was mainly offline with massive campaign modes. Now huge multiplayer content, small insignificant campaign modes, and most people I know who play these games say they only play online now. Now I don't want to to see the career mode go away but I know that a real upgrade of the online/multiplayer mode would really peek my interest. I would love to see something where you can load up the game and have the option of career and multiplayer. Career as normal. Then on multiplayer you could for example sign up to a cup competition played over the course of 3 hours, or sign up to a long term league campaign where a season is played over a few weeks perhaps with 3 games a night. If you can't play every game then your ass man plays with your tactics. You could include your fantasy draft mode where you can play against anyone out there looking for a game. Just lots of one night game modes, week long sign ups and long term sign ups. These would be hosted by SI so you don't have the scenario me and my friends have had where if I can't come online tonight my mates aren't playing with their online teams which is hugely frustrating for them. I just think SI have an amazing match engine which just keeps getting more and more realistic, but it would be great to see that put to further use and a constant, persistent multiplayer option hosted by SI would, for me, plug the final gap in the game and really take it to the next level.
  8. Hi Booble, my start date for finland 2016 in blanked out as is every other for the various times of the year, any idea why?
  9. Thanks, it did this http://prntscr.com/aarm89 and this http://prntscr.com/aarmkk to barcelona in the semi of the uefa cup, a game I really didn't expect to get anything out of... I take your point about tielemans and alli, my priority was to improve my inside forwards as neither chadli or lamela were amazing in the second half of the season, and I have got someone in depay who has ripped the league up for 2 seasons and I got Pione Sisto (Pochettino signing) who has showed promise and rich zivkovic who i'm trying to see if I can mould him into one. BUT Pogba is immense and Alli isn't the complete deal yet but add Sterling or Berardi into my (fairly essential) inside forwards along with Depay and it could be goals goals goals!!! It's a difficult decision...
  10. Hi Folks, beginning of 2017/18 season and I've been in charge of Spurs for 1 season (holiday'd a season and began in 2016/17). Won the prem, the coca cola cup and the uefa cup (i'm old school), and my squad looks good (see links) but needs a little bolstering for the champions league (planning on selling a few players who haven't performed well enough http://prntscr.com/aamql8 http://prntscr.com/aamqzs Here is the shape my players must fit into http://prntscr.com/aapt3v Question is: I have enough to add pogba to the squad for £78 mil, £20 mil signing on and agent fees and £300k per week plus A LOT of incentives. OR do I sign some/all of the following players who are transfer listed for a combined total on transfer fees and wages (roughly), Raheem Sterling £35, Domenico Berardi £35 mil and Thiago £25 mil I suppose do I go for the three signings plus some youngsters I have scouted to bolster u21s and u18s or do I just go all out of Pogba, is he worth it? Thanks
  11. Many of the signings shown on the previous posts are the hot prospects for this years game e.g. Ajer, Zivkovic, Calleri, Balic, Felipe, Tielemens, Diaz... Also currently at the club: Martial, Depay, Shaw, Gribbin, Januzaj...
  12. I would say yes and that's based on what i've seen in this thread alone and my experiences of playing with. It will be tough though but just playing as utd now myself I went to sign a good centre half and a right winger as I dont personally rate Valencia, Young isn't going be decent for much longer and there aren't any academy prospects ready to step up in the next 18 months (Januzaj being the exception) I recommend this thread http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php/366111-How-to-Play-FM-A-Twelve-Step-Guide. It is a great place to start to get your mentality, team shape and player roles right. Tbh I've found tactics are more difficult to get right since 16.2, others may disagree but the update destroyed my tactic and I've spent a few days recently trying to recreate my tactics in a way that works. Other people on here you should read whenever they post: WWFAN, CLEON, THE HAND OF GOD... and I'm sure there are many more as well but they are ones I read regularly. Making your own tactics is difficult and time consuming. I find the tactic creator frustrating tbh, it's easier to get a real life team to do what you want them to do rather than an FM team (trust me I know). Once you get used to tactical instructions (rather than what you believe the rather 'wooley' descriptions are telling you) and what they ACTUALLY do to your team in a match - and that will change every update! which the above mentioned article and posters will help you with you will get there. My top tip is to have a throw away save, and work on the tactics until they are doing what you want them to then take them into the main save and see how they work out and make tweaks from there. PPL may say that's not how real life managers do it, but then again real life managers are able to watch their players train with their tactics and instructions and make tweaks in the build up to the match based on what they see in training! Good Luck
  13. Nation: Competitive Division: Continentally competitive (or could be) European Competition: Not important - potential to be in contention for a place Media Prediction: Not important Board Expectation(s): Not important Transfer Budget: Something to work with Wage Budget: Something to work with Finances: Something to work with Other: Essentially got bored of playing as man utd, stoke, malaga and a few others I regularly play with for many many years now. I normally have to care about the team I play as in order for me to give it any time. Basically I'm after a project but in many ways a fairly easy one as I don't get much time to play anymore so relatively quick progression for most people would actually take a bit of time for me (I only tend to get a few hours over the weekend now because of work and family). I always play in Europe as I cant ever seem to get into a game elsewhere but maybe I should broaden my horizons. I would like to be somewhere where I could with some development turn the club into continental title challengers and in turn Club world championship contenders! Hope this helps, thanks in advance for your suggestions... I should say an edited db isn't out of the question or any other types of project like a save with some interesting developments in 10 years time etc, I'm fairly open to the normal and the 'outside of the box' suggestions...
  14. Hi thanks for this, do you mean make a league, attach it to a country then replace whatever league is currently there so for example make my league, add it to..... scotland for example, then remove the SPL and make my league the top league in scotland and that should mean that my new league takes on the champions league spot and other euro qualification for the SPL???
  15. O... didn't think it would be that complicated, what if I took over a smaller nation (or perhaps extinct nation) and make them active, same again I assume? And by rebuild, i'm guessing you mean make a new champions cup to replace the stock one???
