  1. FM 18 - Worth it?

    I'm enjoying this years version to be honest. I'm using some ridiculous tactic with 3 out and out strikers, two attacking wing backs and an attacking midfielder. Any ball down the channel is picked up by one of the three and it's a simple cross in for one of the other 2 to score. Lots of pace. Good fun to watch although we let in at least a goal a game, which is a little frustrating. Some of the UI is awkward, and the columns in my custom view keep changing size so I have to scroll but other than that I can't really complain. I like the addition of little 3 day injuries as it's a lot more realistic. I have noticed though that I get about 7 concussions a year. All in all, as long as you forget everything you know about real life tactics when creating your in game tactic you won't go far wrong.
  2. I've noticed in almost all of my Luton saves in the various FM's over the last few years that board start as 'content to remain' but after a year or so are actively trying to sell up. IRl 2020 are in for the long haul and are one of the more stable owners, so is this a deliberate setting or randomly generated in game?

    @Smurf, I'm not meaning to 'fight' you on it, apologies if it's coming across that way. I'm just trying to get a clear understanding of what I need. The Lenovo has 8gb RAM so should be fine from that end. Thanks for the advice re the processor, I didn't know that so I will keep looking.

    Appreciate your help and feedback from this. I think I'm missing something on the minimum spec for FM18.. I like the Lenovo 510 which has Intel Core i7, dual core. 8gb ram plus potential expansion, 1tb hard drive and NVIDA GeForce 940mx graphics card. FM minimum is intel4, 2 gb ram and a NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT It seems to me like it would meet the requirements and game-debate agrees. No trying to have a pop or anything, just curious why you think it doesn't meet the specs

    thanks for the reply. It's better than the laptop I used to have and that had no problems with large databases and multiple leagues loaded. What makes you think it will be no good for FM? I'm not massively keen on the fact it has no disk drive so might look for something else like https://www.ebuyer.com/800868-lenovo-v110-laptop-80th0013uk ok, think I've narrowed it down a bit more https://www.ebuyer.com/825568-lenovo-ideapad-510-15-laptop-chalk-white-80sr008ruk https://www.ebuyer.com/825566-lenovo-ideapad-110-15-laptop-black-80ud006duk

    Great idea for a thread, loving that you've 'out-franchised' MK. Obviously in real life the idea is terrible
  8. Only worth doing if clubs don't then go and play lucrative games in Dubai or somewhere equally far away.

    I had a Lenovo Z50 before and that did the job for me - I wonder if there's a slightly newer model of that maybe?
  10. New Laptop/PC - Help Needed

    After a bit of advice.. I've got anywhere from about £500 down to spend on a new laptop. Will only play FM and maybe one or two other games if any take my fancy. That new point hospital maybe. And then just general use like internet/office. Any recommendations? Thanks

    Has his personality been set to 'troublemaker'?
  12. Is 'unusual' the mod speak for PR stunt?
  13. so what's the criteria for getting a 20, an arbitrary opinion from a researcher who (no offence intended as they do a good job) has probably never played/coached been involved in football to a decent level? Surely if there was no-one with better vision than Modric he should get a 20 and become the benchmark? I get that all ratings are a researchers opinion, but surely there has to be a benchmark somewhere? edit: just read the thread and 20 is apparently all time best. Still very subjective though as how many people actually saw a lot of the old legends other than hearsay and 1 or 2 grainy youtube clips?
  14. It happens quite often even at lower levels. Alan Sheehan for Luton will quite often bring the ball into the opponents half and join in the attacking play, with Rea as the DM dropping to cover. IMO it's what the ball playing CB role should do.

    Have done all of those things..the reason I'm not confident is I didn't notice I'd spilt anything for a little while..basically I'd picked up a few cups to carry out to the kitchen and must have carried one at a funny angle and it was spilling. I stayed in the kitchen/outside for a bit then came in and noticed.
