  1. I hope so. I still think this feature needs tweaked a bit though. Now I just had a message pop saying he's unhappy because we've had a falling out which isnt true because theres been no conversations between us.
  2. Just restarted after my previous save died on me. Doing ok, not great but ok. I do have one problem though. How do you deal with players who are unhappy at the start of the season because you havent strengthened the squad? I signed Stefan De Vrij and while he's playing well he's unhappy I havent signed any players to strengthen the team. How can I sign quality players if their clubs refuse to sell them? I cant force players to join my team so I think this player happiness\promises thing needs tweaked a bit. I have some targets earmarked for January so maybe he'll be happier then if I can sign them.
  3. I havent encountered any Brexit issues yet. In fact i'm a bit disappointed this is even in the game since it hasn't happened yet irl and may not if the MP's get their way. I think SI were a bit premature including this in this years version of the game.
  4. Yup this is exactly the problem with these players. I'm in a similar situation with Wayne Rooney because I dont want him and have no need for him in the system I am using but I know I cant transfer list him because nobody will pay the stupid wages he's on. In this case I'm just going to give him the occasional game (probably minor teams & cups) and just wait for his contract to run out. I cant see anyone willing to pay a player who will be in his mid 30's the wages he's currently on. He's no Ibrahimovic after all
  5. Crowd & Penaltys

    Seen this quite a bit in my own game and on various youtube videos. Its definitely something that needs tweaked a bit.
  6. The poor goalkeepers and other issues I've mentioned elsewhere are all taking place in the English Premier league which is supposedly the best league in the world with the best players. So I think that this is something that definitely needs looked into and tweaked a bit.
  7. Penalty Kicks

    I've only had a brief play of the beta so far but I have watched quite a few youtube videos and both saving and taking penalties appears to be a major flaw in the game just now.
  8. My problem with free kicks is not hitting the wall but missing the target by miles and watching the ball go sailing high into the stands. Will upload a pkm in the morning.
  9. I've seen this a few times. Goalkeepers are currently pretty poor especially when it comes to penalties.
  10. Not sure if these are bugs or me just being a tactical idiot but the players need to be able to pass better. Theres too many balls being bounced off team mates. The freekicks are awful currenty and I haven't seen any of the well known free kick specialists getting a goal or a shot anywhere near the goalkeeper. Finally the penalties need fixed because they are terrible too.
  11. Goalkeepers- Saving Penalties

    If you mean goalkeepers ability in FM17 then dont worry about it because they nearly always save them or the players misses completely. I've seen this on lots of videos on youtube and experienced it myself. Lets hope its addressed before November 4th.
  12. Fm17: Good free transfers

    Thanks. I should have realised though that it was a shortlist file. I'm offically a stupid old git
  13. Fm17: Good free transfers

    How do you open this? I dont have an app that will work with it.
  14. If they replace Van Gaal with Giggs then theyll end up in league 2 or worse. No real experience. He would struggle I think.
  15. Look on YouTube for a guy calling himself 'The Reckonist'. He's got a few videos as United manager playing 442 the fergie way. His tactics are also available on steam.
