  1. I had the same with a striker at Derby who would almost single handidly keep them up every season, often on the last game of the season. I never got him and he’s still there banging in goals!
  2. No, not ignore the information, however you have asked why Haaland is unhappy according he has started 9 out of 13 games, but only played 90 minutes in 3 of them. I have suggested that while his contract/playing time notification has been fulfilled, Haaland himself is unhappy with being subbed at 70 mins the majority of games, regardless if he is tired or not. In real life according to https://www.infogol.net/en/player/erling-haaland/27207, he averages 97 mins per match (I presume this includes injury time). All I have suggested is that perhaps he doesn't like being subbed every game. No need to get so defensive and sarcastic.
  3. Sorry I was looking at Gravenberch thinking it was Haaland being the important player. I guess similar can be drawn though. Haaland is starting 90% of games? Possibly, so that may mean the star player is being met. But he’s only playing 70mins and that’s what he’s unhappy about?
  4. But I don’t think the OP has played the players as much as they want hence why they are unhappy. Haaland has been hooked after an hour in all games he’s started apart from 3 where he’s played 90mins and 3 where he’s been dropped/rested. so he has started a lot of games so he actual and agreed playing time has just about been met if you use Neils %s above, however Haalands issue says he’s still unhappy with the amount of TIME he’s playing. He hardly gets to finish a game. The game can’t and shouldn’t spell everything out for the player, there needs to be some man management for players individual needs and wants.
  5. Anyone got 3 players in the Goal 50 award two years running?
  6. I only ever do one save. Had a bit of a journeyman career. Skovde > Brommapojkarna > Lyon > Bristol City. In about 2060. Haven't picked up the game in a month now, but could still name my 1-11!
  7. I run England, France, Germany, Italy, Holland, Scotland, Sweden, Portugal, Spain and Serbia in full detail and then add the odd league throughout the save if I notice a few newgens coming out of one country. I enjoy following clubs that I don't have any access over becoming champions or falling to mid-table. For example, Go Ahead Eagles have become huge in Holland.
  8. I've had a look at the average price on the Spurs website for the 3 categories and the average price for all areas; Cat A: Average price = £65 Cat B: Average price = £61 Cat C: Average price = £49 Total ticket average price £58. But as far as I'm aware, this would not include season ticket sales (the majority of the attendance). Season ticket average price = £1,296 On my game (2060 - so not sure what it is at the start) it's listed as £1,250. So individual tickets are £8 off and season tickets are £46 off. I'd say that is pretty accurate.
  9. Then you're not doing it right because I'm putting traits on pretty much all players which match my tactic and they all do exactly what the trait is meant to do. I swap out for my sub in the same position and he doesn't have the trait and he plays completely differently.
  10. Has anyone else not paid much attention to the clauses in contracts and let this sneaky one financially cripple your club? I'm spending £4.5m p/w on wages but am still losing money like crazy so went into the finances and noticed my bonus expenditure was ridiculous. I've got a couple of big bonuses for goals and assists on 3 key players which they always get but I don't mind that. I then had a look at my appearance fees. If I pick my strongest 11 in my mind on top of the weekly wage I'm spending another £608,500 per match!!! I had 7 games in my last month. Thats another £4.2m on top of the £4.5m p/w I'm already spending! No wonder I'm £30m in the red!
  11. Anyone got all 3 players in the Goal 50 award?
  12. It depends how you like to play. Some people only like using real players so find the game boring after 5-6 seasons, others (like me) only really enjoy it once it's only newgens meaning the save doesn't really start until 10 seasons in! I started my save unemployed with the aim to become one of the best managers in the game and then join the club I support at whatever level they are to 'rescue them'. After one season at Skovde I was offered the Brommapojkarna job in Swedish 2nd division. I spent 23 seasons there while my mini-aim was to get as many great players through my youth system as possible. I had an amazing forward who wouldn't sign a contract and left of a free so that was my cue to leave so I went to Lyon. Only spent 2 seasons there but won Ligue 1 once before the Bristol City job came up in the Championship. Applied got it and have since led them to 7 straight prem titles in the 13 season I have been there. This is almost solely down to a newgen I have in AMC who scores 30 goals and assists 50 a season. A real freak of nature. As my original aim is 'complete' I'm now seeing how well I can get this newgen to perform how many goals, assists and MoM he can get in his career. I also have the aim to beat Frank Lampard in the Manager Hall of Fame after he won 20 League Titles... I keep my game fresh by setting long term and short term targets. Once they are completed, I set more!
  13. For this, if you go to the globe icon > awards > team of the year > all time team of the year it shows you the best 11 players of your save. That normally includes the best goal scorers.
  14. I'll use the star system to initially determine if I look at a player or not and then look at the particular player attributes to see if they are good in areas that I want them to perform well in e.g. wingers high pace, dribbling, etc.
  15. I’m in a similar boat to you in that I’m in 2059, doing a journeyman and wondering what jobs I can get once I leave where I am currently as my manager is also in his 70s…
  16. No-one will get a coaching role out of playing FM, but I’ve seen quite a few people on Twitter who are interested in stats and have Twitter profiles dedicated to this getting Data Analyst jobs at league clubs.
  17. Physical attributes of a goalie would be a factor too? A 6'5" goalie can cover more of the goal than a 5'11" goalie.
  18. I've got Fiorentina signing 3-4 player totalling £500m, but the max I've seen them buy someone is £180m, no where near that you got. Hell of a player though!
