  1. Bit strange, perhaps you upset them somehow like the footballer in the 90s who insulted the women of the town he was playing for!
  2. That was my initial thought too. Perhaps the OP could experiment a little and apply for a few more jobs that his reputation is too high for and see if they're rejected aswell.
  3. What do SI possibly gain by writing code that scripts matches? If ever it came out that this was the case then that would be the immediate end of the series. Seems a big risk to do something which ultimately would only be designed to annoy their current base!!
  4. The main crux you're missing is that Monty Hall KNOWS where the car is so he's not randomly opening doors. There are some great Monty Hall simulators that show why it is always best to swap doors
  5. If there’s ever a game show with 300 billion doors and after picking one, the host opens every other door except one, anyone who doesn’t switch doors needs committing!!
  6. Football Director, tracksuit manager and of course the original football manager remain my favourites, nostalgically speaking. And slightly off topic, fifa19 is not a patch on match day! 1 or 2!
  7. Yesterday on my FM17 save, my Leyton orient team completely FM'd Chelsea reserves in the Checkatrade nonsense, sorry, trophy. We won 1-0 with our only shot on target and were totally dominated in all departments, In real life, the one that stands out is this one - https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/24792963 - as I was at the game and still don't fully understand how we lost! I guess my point is, sometimes we get FM'd and sometimes, well, we do the FMing, both on the game and in real life
  8. I’ve had one or two down the years who overperform their attributes/rating. What’s a bit unrealistic is that bigger clubs rarely come in for them even if they’re averaging 7-7.5s
  9. I bought fm14, 16 & 17 but always gravitate back towards my long fm10 save. I just find it more fun and more of a game than a chore! I also feel it’s more controllable from a tactics point of view, let me give an example I had an aging but pacy striker on 10 who I could instruct, using the sliders, to sit on the halfway line looking for a break away if we were holding onto a lead in the last few minutes of a game. Nothing fancy, just sit on the half way line. On fm 16 & 17 I could find no simple way of asking a similar attacker to do the same thing without having to change my entire teams shape. He would invariably drift back and help out. If someone can show me a way to do this simple player instruction on a recent fm then I’m very happy to stand corrected
  10. This is pretty much word for word how I feel about FM and FMT. FMT got me back in love with the game I used to spend hours on but now don’t have the time
  11. I can semi relate to this post - I used to get home from work and enjoy smashing 7 bells out of teams on CM3 all night. But I much prefer the current setup where I have to give a little thought to each game and react to situations. I don't get to play anywhere near as much as I used to but my mind may still drift off to my players and possible tactics (especially if the wife and kids are nagging me about something or other) I agree, it often doesn't feel like a game, but again, I love the immersion and the feeling when you score a last minute winner because (or despite) of the changes you've made makes it all sweeter because of the effort that's required I know the OP's problem was tactics so FMT is not really the solution but I switched to it for FM17 and it breathed a whole new life for FM for me. It's not 'dumbed down' as someone suggested a couple of posts up - often it can be a bit harder in certain situations ie half time when my players have been playing like zombies, I can't lash into them but have to use tactics instead I hope the OP reads a few of the tactic forum and give some ideas a go. Alternatively, I sometimes fire up FM10 where I was all conquering with Yeovil and have a bit of fun blasting teams away without much effort!
  12. Great thread, thank you. It's threads like these that help me understand a) what an in depth, amazing game fm is and b) why I'm not very good at it
  13. I remember quite a fm's ago, maybe 05 or 07, I was managing someone midtable either league 2 or conference and got offered the England job. My rep would have been the lowest possible
  14. Taking Northampton to the Premiership suggests you're actually quite good at this game!
  15. I had a similar question regarding the relegation in belgium 3rd div here http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php/440884-Belgian-3rd-Div-relegation-question The pre-match news items are good fun - 'so and so are top of the league but could slip into the relegation places if they lose'
  16. I heard a rumour that SI will put game-breaking bugs into your copy of FM16 if you have brown hair and have ever been to Woking on the 16th August. But ssshhhh, don't tell anyone
  17. Sounds fine to me. If you've listed him and then offered him to clubs, why not push your luck and try to get him for nothing? They don't know the reasons behind you offering him out
  18. So just to clarify, the mentality's are essentially a risk gauge from 1-6 and it would theoretically be possible to employ an extremely highly risky but very defensive tactic by combining overload and then defensive player roles, TI's, PI's, etc?
  19. Think the tie changes colour depending on the team you're managing Can't understand the outcry over this feature; it's not something I'm remotely interested in but it took up less than 10 seconds of my time and now I don't have to think about it again
  20. I think you do. Board would be happy with a mid-table finish so I could give them that and still lose my job! From what I can work out, the top 2 get promoted, 3rd to 6th enter into a playoff and everyone else gets relegated. Think they should introduce something like that into the premier league...!
  21. Thanks bestbrother - your googling expertise is clearly better than mine! I have a bad feeling I may lose my job at the end of the season then...
  22. Hi, just started a new game on 16.1 and got a job in the Belgian 3rd division. In an 18 team league, the rules state the bottom 12 get relegated - ie from 7th downwards!! Hoping someone with more intimate knowledge of the Belgium lower leagues can confirm this is true! A quick google didn't seem to suggest the league was this brutal Thanks
  23. I bought FM07 and since then only FM10 and FM14. I don't get too much time to play so it seems silly to buy every year as I would only play a couple of seasons per version Trust me, you really notice the improvements when you don't buy for 3-4 years!!
  24. Of course he does! Why would he want to stay on his part time wage from the Conference South when a top Premiership team have just bought him?!
  25. I haven't read the whole thread so apologies if I'm simply repeating what someone else has said but I think it's a bit churlish to do something completely unrealistic in the game and then complain the game doesn't act as it should do in real life Benzema and Pogba are both very good players but neither are worth half the amount the OP put a bid in for and IRL, no club would even consider making a bid anywhere near that size for either player so it seems a bit silly to do just that, and then complain the game - and that's what it is, a game - doesn't simply accept the offer I remember in CM3 having a wonderful time taking over Arsenal, putting all their players on huge wages and long contracts, then releasing them and resigning, thus bankrupting their sorry asses and watching them slide down the leagues while my Spurs side dominated Europe. It would be slightly unfair for me to then go on a forum and complain that the game wasn't acting realistically
