  1. This was flagged up a few months ago and fixed, cheers.
  2. Micah Richards used to use that line, too. It's even less convincing in Adama's case...
  3. Yeah It's one that we all missed but someone helpfully pointed it out on here a couple of weeks ago. Cheers.
  4. IIRC The 'Youth Coach' job title was previously used as a non-player history item to help show that a person had a previous role at a club lower than the U18 level that FM represents. I'm unsure as to how we stand with setting this as a *current* job role, and how the game would react to that. I've always suspected that it leads to that person not being extracted, thus removing them from the game entirely. That doesn't seem like the best-case outcome to me. If that's incorrect I have some work to do, as I have a large list of club staff that I use as a standby for if they ever get promoted U18+
  5. He's the U15 coach, which isn't a role that FM represents. Maybe he's been promoted since but I haven't seen him around. I disagree. I think that is the game giving you a rough estimate for a bad injury, as is, to be fair, that MEN article. Also as has been posted already; you have to put up with injuries sustained at those sort of times IRL I'm afraid.
  6. I've flagged up that some of you think that Sterling is under-performing vs real life, but calling him under-rated in the game is untrue. He's one of the best players in the virtual PL. I think it would be more of a bug, if it is found to be the case. Please believe that the man with the Raheem Sterling avatar does not under-rate Raheem Sterling.
  7. I will turn myself in to the relevant authorities at once. Thanks for sharing your opinions, I'll keep them in mind.
  8. IIRC Sterling and the Liverpool forwards are rated very close ability wise. There are also plenty of people who would disagree with you on those particular stats.
  9. Has anyone ever experienced being bang-on level on all aspects and having to play a 'final' to determine the league winner? Is this even coded into the game?
  10. Won my first league game and am now officially terrified to fire the game back up in case I rage quit after no-doubt losing the second 0-6. Went for a 4-2-3-1 focusing on crossing onto a target man. Will attempt to plough through a season this weekend.
  11. I'm absolutely abysmal at tactics, as me two years ATTEMPTING to start this challenge have shown Praying I can keep Hornchurch up and turn them professional, at very least...
  12. Not sure if I can take part this year as I'm still sulking about Thurrock folding...
  13. Lukaku's Player Tribune words are ringing in my ears, here. Now he's the son of an immigrant, is he. I wonder what he was considered on this occasion:
  14. I really like when I bring in players/staff who then turn up in real life. In FM16 I bought Stefan Kutschke for Dynamo Dresden, an absolutely massive striker who fired me up the leagues. (He scored THIS in the season just gone btw) By January he had signed on 1.5 years loan for Dresden IRL. As usually happens with FM, I grew attached to Dresden because of my epic save and everything I learnt about them in the mean time. So on 28th October 2016 me and a few friends flew out to watch Dresden take on Braunschweig. Dresden went down 0-2 just after half time, but Kutschke took charge. in 12 minutes, he got the scores back to 2-2, and then in the 81st minute, right in front of me in K-block for my first ever visit, did THIS !!!! Limbs, bodies, & beer flying everywhere. What a man Stefan Kutschke is. Seems i'm now Dresden for life
  15. What is this fixation that the co commentator has to comment on EVERYTHING
  16. Feel like I had deja vu watching Jesus today, I've seen him have that exact poor game 6/7 times already. Difficult guy to figure out.
  17. Want him signed on name alone. Can you imagine the cross-over content that would be created!
  18. Think I'm off to Scotland over the summer, personally. See if I can build on the SFA Cup win that Neil Lennon couldn't. If that doesn't intrigue you, how about diving into the challenges forum? Plenty of juicy stuff in there
  19. It took me an absolute age. Something like 50-100 re-tries. And then I never saw it through to the end of the first season.
  20. Honestly couldn't be prouder of the lad himself, considering the avalanche of nonsense he puts up with from the English press and support, he deflects the lot and gets on with doing his job and looking after his family. A true inspiration for us all.
  21. Shame about the opening game innit. Other than that, off out to get a wallchart and crates and crates of the good stuff later, bring it on.
  22. Thurrock FC Post 1 Starting squad: Rough start, lads: Tough, tough stuff. Gone with a narrow 4-3-3 as you can probably see, hoping to get the full backs involved in attacks but not having much luck at the mo. The new scouting system is making finding players a pretty miserable task, added to struggles with finding a tactical sweet-spot. Averaging 4 points every 5 games, leaving me with about 35, won't be enough to keep me up I don't think. I will have to re-evaluate. Coaching is now the best in the league, with 'Pie Bloke Wayne Shaw™' sat as my GK coach. Not going to see much reward in this area, but it's nice to have.
