  1. Must admit frustration got the better of me last night. Lost a really important game and decided to subsequently sell 24 out of my 27 players. Only 3 survived the cut lol . Got rid of all my older players (in total i generated 420m in player sales, shaved 3.4m off the weekly wage bill) and replaced all the player positions at the cost of 112m. My wage bill is only 1.1m now. The majority of my team is now only 17-19 years old. Really interested to see if this turns out to be the worst decision i've ever made on FM.
  2. Must admit, was in my 6th or 7th season at Leipzig and was getting a bit bored winning everything. Then I made a rash decision I thought I’d regret, I resigned. Holidayed for 6 months and then took over Brighton at rock bottom after 16 games played. Aim was to survive relegation, managed a respectable 8th place finish, narrowly missing out on Europe. 2nd season I rebuilt the squad, replaced all oldies and bought good youth prospects. Managed to finish 7th, qualifying for Europa. Anyway point of this thread, in a weird way, very weird indeed, surprisingly I’m having much more fun. Still yet to win a trophy, but each game I win is much more meaningful. anyway as the title says, have you ever just got bored and given a good thing up for no other reason than sheer boredom of winning?
  3. Anyone got any tips to win this damn competition. 2021, get to semi but get thumped by Bayern, I’m Leipzig btw. then in 2025, make the QF but lose to Liverpool. the fixtures in this completion are scheduled terribly. I had to play 3 games in 6 days and my players were absolutely dead on their feet, even with playing a different starting XI in each game. tbh my second XI went into the competition with low fitness, maybe I could have played a friendly or two to build up fitness. any any advice would be appreciated. ive won 4 euro competitions in 6 years so know it’s not tactics, strategy or players before anyone asks.

  5. UPDATE: I have just been moved to icon status. All I needed to do was go unbeaten in the league, played 34, won 31, drew 3 lol scoring an incredible 113 goals along the way. made it to the CL final again, 4th time in 6 years, I now face A. Madrid in the final, but have a cup final to play against Frankfurt first.
  6. At the start it was to qualify for CL and reach the 1st round knock out, obviously that has changed over time and now they expect much higher from me.
  7. Don’t be so hyperbolic, I didn’t say everything is broken, I was alluding to one small feature. And I stand by my comment.
  8. RB Leipzig, so they’ve never won a league title before, never won a European title let alone three. I support Arsenal IRL and if anyone had achieved that with them, who IMO are a much bigger team, that manager would go down as a legend. Defo think it’s broken and needs looking at.
  9. Don’t you mean confirmation bias, but either way - I’ve made a note, last 10 times this has happened it’s ended in a goal. I only watch on key highlights but doubt that would affect it.
  10. Crazy that I’m only on the favoured personnel list when I’ve achieved 5 league titles, a europa cup, 2 CL titles, and numerous cups. what do I have to achieve to get to icon status? i can see my players I’ve bought on their already!! I’m the manager, surely I should trump them all!! This is majorly broken IMO, needs to be fixed.
  11. Anyone else notice when watching the game, if the ball is cleared away twice and you get a 3rd crack at scoring within the same highlight it always ends up being a goal, kinda ruins the realism as you’re just waiting for the ball to hit the back of the net, also makes you feel like the goal was programmed to go in - thoughts?
  12. I’m playing a 4-1-3-2 and both my strikers are pressing forwards on attack. Reason for choosing this is both run the channels, much needed as I play without wingers, and I like to defend from the front. Not bothered about giving them different roles, sometimes identical roles can be just as effective, especially if they have different PKMs
  13. Going into my 5th season and I’m managing in the German league. I notice Bayern’s team is pretty much the same as it was in the first season, they’re even still playing 34 year old Lewandowski, and he’s slow as hell. When I play top teams in the CL I don’t see this problem, their teams often look totally different. Anyone else experience this or is it just me?
  14. Yeah I agree, it actually adds depth to a tactic, as the best ones utilise many different ways to score. I don’t use pre set tactics, but wonder if any have both options ticked, probably not.
