  1. I'm not being funny but why are you getting at someone for starting a save when they chose to? This is a feedback thread and he is providing relative feedback. The fact we're in March now and this games still riddled with bugs falls on SI and not when someone decides to start their save. Again, it's March, not November, December or January. I think it's safe to say, he's been patient.
  2. So as I stated, you are doing something right then to have Gateshead in the Premier League! Nicely done, Manchester United though are still expected to beat times like yourself, mid-table PL sides. Sure, not 7-0 but it can happen.
  3. Tbf, if that is you're worst result of all time, you're obviously doing something right. Gateshead taking a hammering away at Old Trafford is nothing to be too ashamed off. I don't examples to hand but I've had some absolute shockers and had some hidings from lower league opposition over the years of this game. The one which really used to infuriate me was losing to the reserves however gladly that hasn't happened for a long long time.
  4. I wouldn't say FM 18 was the better game, as I do enjoy the new additions to FM 20, such as club vision and various others however the ME in FM18 is far superior than FM20. Everyone has their own opinion of course but if you look at the complaints of this years edition, the majority of it, if not all of it is the ME. Get the ME fixed (easier said than done) and this is the best FM yet but unfortunately it's not. As I said in a previous post, FM 20 is a better overall game however FM18 (and FM19 to an extent) have a superior ME and unfortunately for SI that's one if not the biggest as
  5. It does sound harsh on the basis of it however, how important to them was signing German players? For example, was it preferred or was it required? If it was required then as harsh as it may seem, you can see why the board are pissed if you have not bothered to do it after agreeing to these terms. Add this with anything else that you may be failing/underachieving at (e.g your early cup exit to a lower league side) then it starts to add up in the boards eyes. Sure you're currently top but that could change and you're not fulfilling long term objections. As I say, it is still a rather harsh
  6. As someone who plays Celtic every year, I get what you mean. I've had countless double figure wins against sides in the qualifiers. Even in my current save I beat Sheriff 10-0 at home. One thing I do think needs looked at though is the boards expectations for Europe results for Scottish sides, Celtic especially. Being a season ticket holder, I can tell you if we were to draw 0-0 with Bayern Munich at home I would be chuffed. If we were to have a very competitive match against A. Madrid and just marginally lose 1-0, I again be proud of the performance. However, the board in the VERY FIRST
  7. Would you mind showing goal types? I would be curious to see the amount of goals from headers you've had considering the amount of goals which have led from crosses.
  8. https://gyazo.com/ab6b876f0cde629475c63afcb5f2930a The above sums FM20's match engine up this year in a nutshell. That game finished 2-1 in my favor, both my goals coming from set plays, despite missing three 1v1s (all CCC) and dominating the game possession wise and in terms of chances. The AI on the other hand are presented with one highlight. one clear cut chance and one goal. I'm not complaining, I'm used to it at this point but when I have my side playing hungry possession football and the short passing game, it's quite annoying that the majority of my goals come from set pieces and
  9. FINAL DAY OF THE SEASON FINAL DAY FIXTURES As you can see, promotion may be wrapped up but the league title is still all to play for. We're away to MK Dons who are 15th while Blackpool are at home to Tranmere Rovers who are 10th. It's simple, Blackpool win, they are champions HOWEVER, if they do not win then all we need to do is BETTER their result and we can snatch the league title on the last day of the season. CHAMPIONS!!! Absolute scenes! Blackpool bottle it on the final day of the season and concede right at the end to allow us to nip in and steal
  10. Now on to the league campaign. The results are below, starting with October to January then February to April. OCT - JAN FEB - APR Which means,,, Overall I'm absolutely delighted with the how the season has went. We got off to a rocky start but as you can see from January we really hit on and went on an insane run of form. I personally found the small changes I made to the formation made a huge difference, for example I usually always play positive however switching it to balance seemed to have a much better effect for the majority of the games. Also playi
  11. So, when I started this threat I was already quite far ahead in the first season and the plan was to catch up before carrying on but that was ambitious. Anyone who has the FM bug knows it's easy to get carried away and hard to stop so I have decided to get us all up to date, I'm going to be reviewing the season with this update. To make it easier to understand, I'll categorize each competition below. Starting with the domestic cup competitions in this update. EFL CUP - 2nd Round (Board Expectation 2nd round) FA CUP - 3rd Round (Board Expectation 3rd round) EFL Leasin
  12. So August wasn't a great start to the season, with 3 defeats in a row in the league, the first two being at home. Very hard done by though, we were very much in the games against Sunderland and Oxford United however they were more clinical than us. We did pick up an expected win the cup against lower league opposition to stop the morale from taking a hammering however it then took a hammering with an embarrassing defeat away to Rochdale. The result doesn't show the entire picture, we were far by the better team, had twice the amount of shots and 4 clear cut chances in comparison to there 0, ye
  13. Good shout, I did try and bring him in but couldn't afford the wage demands this season. If it wasn't for the link we had with City, I would have likely brought nobody in.
  14. Preseason, an opportunity to find out whether or not the boards expectations were realistic or well, not. Started off with a comfortable 3-1 win over the under 23's however I do always hate conceding against them, leaves a sour taste in my mouth but it's just fitness at that point. We then had back to back 1-0 wins, first over Scottish Premiership side Livingston and then League 2 side Swindon Town. Both games we were the better side, created more chances and dominated the possession. Keeping a clean sheet was also pleasing at this stage. We then drew 0-0 with League 2 Colchester in which was
  15. If you had a keen eye you would have saw the two unfamiliar names in the squad, Ian Carlo Poveda and Nabil Touaizi. Luckily the board agreed that a parent club would be in our favor and offered me the choices of West Ham, Manchester City and Tottenham. As you can see I went with Manchester City, they offered the most money (which at this point is very important) and also have a huge range of talent, it was a no brainer really. Poveda adds much needed depth to the wings and Touaizi does the same up front.
