  1. I would suggest the issue with the game isn;t the tactics per se, its that it is difficult to actually get the tactics you want to play into the game engine. I think this could be solved in the next version by having a more intuative "guide" to setting up tactics. More like a "chat" with the assistant manager where he asks what type of football you want to play and then your tactics are designed by this. I also think that a tactic only works by having the right players in it, for example Barcalona don;t have the players to play in the way Allardyce likes his teams to play, so the assisant would suggest that to play this tactic you then players with good crossing and heading ability for example. Just an idea.
  2. Id like the option to let a player leave the club straight away if he has asigned a precontract with another team. For example, Daley Blind is my reserve left back at Ajax, im not planning on offering him a new contract so offer him out to other clubs. Wolfsburg agree to sign him at the end of the season. Id like to say, take him now for free. PRoviding the player and the club agree (why wouldnt they?) then I would like to let him leave straight away. Mainly because I want him off of the wage bill! Plus hes only going to rot in the reserves now hes agreed to leave anyway?
  3. I would certainly agree that contracts need tining down. As Barcelona I was looking to sign a young French player, Tim Clerc a regen who is 18 and has played 6 games for Lyons first team. Currently he is earning £60 a week on a Youth contract. He demands £60,000 a week!! Slightly ludicrous.
  4. The biggest problem with the game IMO is the transfer market. With my QPR team in the 6th season, we are now a regular champions league club haveing finished top 3 for the past 3 seasons. I can attract big named players to the club due to my Champions League exploits but the prices that teams want for these players is a joke! Iker Munian £102 million!! Wellington Nem £50 million bid rejected (value is 22mill) Regen Left back 21 years old valued at 2.5mil.......£33million!!!!!! I could go on, but im finding I cannot sign anyone that I want. I have £70 million to spend on transfers and 300k in the wage budget, so finance is there, but I want the game to be at least a tad realistic. Even when I sign good youngsters they have silly wage demands. 50k per week for a 19yr old that has played a handful of first team games in the championship?!
  5. I really struggled to get into the game until the latest patch. The players just wouldnt play in the way I like a team to play (passing football, in a 4-4-2 who press all over the pitch ala Harry Redknapps Tottenham). I tried with Ajax and Real Madrid. Big clubs that have relativley easy leagues, as a way to ease my way into the game. I couldnt win a game for Real, and whilst with Ajax I won the league, it just didn't feel like "my" team and the players weren't playing how I wanted them to play. I thought id give it one last go on the new patch and took over QPR. Obviously expecting to finish near the bottom. I only managed to sign one player, Wilfired Zaha, who only started 3 games, mainly due to the form of Zamora and Cisse. (Cisse 33 goals in 35 games) I finished 4th and only missed out on the Champions League because City won it and finished 5th. So in the alst patch, I would hav ebeen in the not enjoying camp but now ill be in the "Enjoying it but too easy" camp. Its a fine line!
  6. Not sure...... I played 2 full seasons without an issue until the latest update with no issue which is frustrating

  9. Hi, I'm having major problems with FM13. 1) Sometimes when I turn the game on it comes up with very sharp crystal clear graphics. Other times it comes on with a more cloudy poor graphics. This is completely random. 2) More of a problem is that the game at random points turns the whole computer off. It plays along nicely for a while, and then suddenly my computer turns off. Turn the game back on play for a bit and then the computer again turns off. I do no thave this problem with the computer at any other time or with any game, computer is relatively new. Any help would be appreciated. Thank
  10. Completley agree this is very annoying. Worst part is, I keep forgetting, click through then have to wait for a match report which im not interested in to be generated!
  11. Minor issue, but when I am doing a player search and scrolling down the list of players, I select one, have a look at his stats, then click reverts to the top of the player search again. In the past when I would go back it would be at the same point of the search that I left. Just annoying having to scroll down and find where I was again. Hope that makes sense!
  12. Did this come via email? Havent had mine yet
  13. Khalil was a beast on my PSV save. Always thumped goals in from outside the box.
  14. My advice would be don't over complicate things. By keeping things simple you can get success and breeze through a season in around 6 / 7 hours. I have one tactic that I use at home and away, my assistant does press conferences, friendlys, match preperation training. I sign the players, pick the team and do the half time talks. I've had success with PSV, Gillingham and now AC Milan.
