  1. I'd say it was because if China kept the 117 youth rating and the clubs got a massive influx of cash and used it too improve their youth coaching and facilities there would be too many Chinese superstars in the game.
  2. Look at the records of even good teams over the last six years and they will have failed to beat or been beaten by teams you'd expect them to win easily. That list is meaningless, the question is why aren't England with their players and resources at least a decent team? Not why haven't they beaten these teams?
  3. That was ****. Far too slow and too many midfielders trying to play through the middle. It's not fashionable to get the ball wide to a winger and lump crosses in the box but it would be better that pile of ****.
  4. A ban for trouble outside the stadiums is extremely unlikely to happen. Legally it would be open to all sort of challenges and open a massive can of worms.
  5. A total ban makes some sense given some fans have repeatedly proved down the years that they can't be trusted. A partial ban that just screws locals over the sponsors and does nothing to actually stop any potential problems makes no sense at all. From a safety perspective at least it makes perfect sense as an excuse for money making.
  6. That graph would be a bit less damning if Sunderland weren't on it. £165m difference (over only four years compared to five) and only one place and two points better off. Ashley's plan is a stupid way to run a club but there isn't much evidence that spending more money under the current structure/hierarchy would actually improve the situation. Newcastle and Sunderland both haven't been buying enough of the "right" players, the actual amount of money spent is largely irrelevant beyond perhaps spending more on more players there is a better chance of striking gold through pure blind luck.
  7. Isn't the game after that against Norwich? Norwich fans would be very happy with you sticking with McLaren until then . To be honest with the run we are on most fans think we are down and the only game we have any chance of winning is against the current Newcastle team at Carrow Road. It will be a even more frustrating if you lot get a new manager and dead cat bounce like Sunderland have since Big Sam came in and did two years ago which also got Norwich relegated .
  8. Yes you can, but as far as I know only one from a club. So you can't have two from Man Utd.
  9. Presumably because if both Martial and Lingard are still at Man Utd and if Villa are in the Premier League that breaks the loan rules.
  10. Assuming I've watched the right incident you can't be offside in your own half.
  11. You still haven't played us (Norwich) away yet. Should be able to almost double that tally . Actually if you take away the six you lot put past us in that one match, you are hardly tearing it up at home either.
  12. Getting work permits for excellent youngsters is still and has been in earlier versions fairly easy. The struggles begin when they hit 22-23 (I can't remember the actual age) and they don't qualify for exceptional talents any more and you have to deal with normal rules. I always watch the scouting report says about getting a work permit, but in general if I'm playing in the English leagues I try to avoid having to even bother trying to get work permits. There is more then enough talent in the EU that I rarely bother signing anyone outside of EU nationals.
  13. Football was being played long before the Premier League formed . We haven't won this yet as we have been terrible at conceding sloppy late goals even against **** teams playing terribly.
  14. Depending on the version of FM I average about 24 hours of game time to do a full season. A season takes a bit longer if I move clubs as it can take a couple of hours to setup scouting, tactics, training and assess the squad, but after that I might revisit training every six months to change individual training focus, set my assistant to do all the media and fairly quickly fly through the seasons. I'm far more interested in the next match, next youngster, next transfer then bothering too much about what went wrong with my tactics/selection in the last match.
  15. Watching that video does make it look better then FM15, certainly in terms of usability if not aesthetics. Though to be honest it wasn't the pitch that annoyed me most in FM15 it was the rest of the screen and low res screenshots just make it seem even worse on FM16.
