  1. Hello all, Firstly sorry to be that person who creates a thread for this, but I've googled it and just cannot find any answer........ Managing in the Greek B division on FM18 (just love this FM version) - I signed some players but under the squad registration (on registration deadline day) it states in red 'Una' but when I click it then says 'Unavailable - Isn't going to be registered', I can select him as 'in' but he cannot play in games. How odd, never seen this before and I've been playing CM/FM almost 20 years? Player is EU (Danish) and I actually have anothe
  2. It's a funny one as I imagine you want to close this career and start on an Fm18 one at somepoint, i.e stop playing FM17. Yet if you started at Chelsea (in some time travel based story) for FM18 it wouldn't be as fun as you're already at the top etc. Hmmmmmmm cannot wait to see how this plays out! It has to be Matt Heart, but I'm trying to think what words his Dad would have passed on to him.....
  3. Ah dang, when I saw Kidlay coming on I thought this would be another magic night for an English side in Istanbul! Still you had a good career and made Weds a CL side. I cannot wait for the final/closing post(s).
  4. Interesting that the table doesn't show Weds in blue, i.e you aren't the manager now.......so you must have played that Cl final.............COME ON DON'T KEEP US WAITING!! This thread has been absolutely epic, massive thanks for doing it, been awesome checking in daily to see the progress,
  5. Had a little time on the Beta, seems some good improvements but agree with some of the comments on this thread re the fact things seem to take more clicks/be more complex to get to. One thing I usually do is go through all the national u19 sides looking for cheap youngsters, however it seems VERY slow to do this, each click takes 5 seconds to take affect when browsing through the sides via the up/down arrow (nation to nation alphabetically), is this the same for anyone else? Laptop is ok spec, i7, 12gb RAM, SSD, 2 years old. Overall it just seems a bit slow/clunky, and I
  6. Please please please - finish this season then leave the story open for the FM18 save (I'm sure you have your ideas, mine would be to holiday FM17 until Matt Hart retires, then look at his career and maybe that will influence his managerial career)
  7. Surely they could just update that Rangers sacking when the game goes from Beta to full?
  8. We are a desperate bunch of addicts waiting for our fix! Er - I mean, we are casual gamers who just enjoy this title
  9. Oh maaaaaaaaaaaaan! Was one of the first google results! DOH. I thought it very odd that nobody else had reported it! Must go get coffee...
  10. https://twitter.com/miIlesSI Miles Jacobson‏ @miIlesSI 11h11 hours ago More I've just given the green light for the beta. The process from now takes 24 hours or so. So you should expect it this time tomorrow. #FM18 Seems it will be out late tonight/early tomorrow then. Awesome.
  11. Would you be able to give us a little insight into how you scout? Is it via the scouts, and if so how do you set their assignments, or is it via manual searches, checking youth leagues and such? I had a very very successful network save once and but it was down to a massive amount of time spent scouting.
  12. Excellent thread, just read it start to finish. You remind me of the way I sign players Amazing job!
  13. Awesome method tonight re updating live with the real CL. Good result, if a shame about that away goal.
  14. Hmm, very interesting, it defo needs a revamp so glad they have worked on it this year. I hope it makes things less complex/less time consuming, I found squad building too easy in previous FM's, but it requires alot of time consuming work. Would be nice this year if you can find suitable targets quicker, but there are less off them (if that makes sense!). Before I had to keep scouting a large number of players picked out from largre reports to try and finally find some good ones. Also as someone above has said I'm very interested to see how this pans out for lower league man
  15. Great thread! I usually work hard on the scouting side too, and in a similar way to how you do it. Ideally I tend to have a scout on permanent duty for the main leagues in the big EU countries (plus Arg and Bra) - plus the same for the reserves/u23, and u18 leagues within those countries. Then I have a few more doing the u19 international tournaments etc. I set it to min 3.5 star potential, however I never set any other requirements (for attributes or such). I then assign scouts to scout the players who look promising. However my question is......when a scout is s
  16. Really pleased with the look of Dynamics, I think it might take a while before it's polished but it's a great step forward and I think will make FM more realistic as squad building will be harder now. Last FM's it felt too easy to get players in and constantly improve the squad with little issues, now I think it will be tougher as you'll need to manage the squad cohesion better. Nothing but positive from me for FM18, can't wait. This is the only computer game I ever play.
  17. Gosh, amazing updates recently, as soon as I saw that Hart was stating I just knew it was written in the stars for him to score! This is such an amazing conclusion to the thread, with FM18 on the horizon I suspect this might be the last season, seems it's meant to be for you to win the league this year. I think you won't get any offers from other clubs now, FM seems to have a failure to do that when you get to this level, on my Leeds save you'd imagine most top clubs in Europe would want me, and even though I'm on a v low wage (I always set it low to save the club mon
  18. WOW, 4-0, get in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Literally cannot wait for the group strage draw, one of my fav times in any FM save.
  19. Seriously folk, I'm SURE you can get it for 20 or 25% off from somewhere after the official deal runs out, I've never paid full price for a FM and always had access to the betas etc.
  20. Ouch you dominated Benfica so very unlucky to not get the result! Good luck for the FA cup final, the season has already been a success but to win it would be the cherry.
  21. Probably the tougher team to draw in the final I imagine, but looking forward to it, well done - such fun to have a great European experience.
