  1. Half-Back

    New staff members with no key attributes, roles introduced that don't work properly, pretty much pointless added filler like the social media bit...but you can get a discount on FM18. Which might not work properly until it's been fully patched in Jan. Superb.
  2. If they had a defender back I can see why the keeper would hold on to it, but presumably if Schmeichel has gone forwards then Origi doesn't have a defender with him. I'm sure most keepers would boot it long (or even throw it as most can get it fairly far) in that case as the % of it going wrong is minimal.
  3. biggest in world football
  4. Left back doesn't cover himself in glory there though. In that situation, if the midfield haven't slid across, I would expect the winger to hold up the player with the ball, and if he plays it down the wing to the full back on the overlap, the lb should be in position to cover.
  5. Fair point, my memory was slightly off as I seem to remember seeing it in articles with new features but I can't find anything now. Anyone googling FM2017 in October last year would have seen those articles along with the ones on new features though so easy to see it as a new feature.

  7. He does have a point. Before 17 was released there was very little noticeable marketing. I get that changes under the hood are difficult to market, but when the biggest selling point is that several possible Brexit scenarios have been added, and not anything football related, then there's a problem.
  8. Well that's it...

    People say there's no plug and play tactic but to test this I downloaded a simple 4-1-4-1 tactic from the steam workshop and set up a save as Luton. I only deviated from that tactic when resting players or in a cup game I've played with a different tactic. We got 3 promotions in 4 or 5 years to the Prem, winning league 1 and the championship comfortably in the first season in each, then stayed up in the Prem, and I'm halfway into the next season and we're a comfortable mid table team. I've not signed many players, and Pelly Ruddock is still somehow grinding out a career as a goalscoring central midfielder, despite being league 1 quality. Most of my team was with me in league 2. So, I think plug and play tactics can still work, and I'd be interested to see how much of an effect player attributes actually have as although we did struggle a bit in our first season in the Prem, we're now doing ok with bang average lower league players and I don't do much more than press spacebar.
  9. Watford are one. Never won a trophy in however many years they are claiming to be a club now.
  10. Thanks all. I've decided to play nice for now as he's started investing in the club.
  11. So I've just been taken over by a consortium with Darragh MacAnthony at its head. He's a twat in real life and to be honest I'm not sure I want him as my in game chairman, but I was enjoying the save. Not sure what to do now - my standing with the fans is high as I've taken Luton to the Prem in about 5 years, so if I have a load of falling outs in public will him can he be forced out, or should I just either stick it out or resign?
  12. Good point. The selection screen can't be the defensive shape but then the players natural roles be the attacking ones. It's illogical, especially as you are then penalised by players making poor decisions.
  13. Does anyone know where I can find the page that shows my all time record appearance maker and all time goalscorer for the club? I've tried looking in the club -> records page but I can't find it. I'm playing 17.
  14. I've found the same in my save. I couldn't get my tactic to work successfully, so I've gone to a simple 4-1-4-1 with a normal gk, two fb-s, two cb-s, two wm-s, two cm-a and a df. Basically all that happens is we dominate possession against every team, >65-70%, and my 4 midfielders pass the ball around on the edge of the opponents box repeatedly and for long periods of time, mostly either with their back to goal or facing sideways, until eventually one of the midfielders is facing the goal, and plays a through ball to either the striker or a wm who shoots. It's incredibly dull to watch, but we've had 2 back to back promotions and are now 3rd in the Championship. Not ready to go up by a long way so I'm tempted to revert back to my old tactic and then switch back to this successful one next season.
  15. Bournemouth's ground only seats 11k so that 18k figure seems high
