  1. It’s best to close FM before doing the Steam update and restarting FM after the update is complete. If Steam updated while FM was open, shut it down and reopen.
  2. For whatever reason, I never seem to get 9 figure bids for my players. I get news items that say Real/Barça/PSG are rumored to be making a >100M bid for any number of players, but they never come in with anything close to it.
  3. In Summer 2026, Saka has won the World Cup Golden Ball (England lost the final to Brazil…on penalties; Saka and Smith Rowe in the team) and I’ve been getting routine news items that Real Madrid are plotting a £110M move. I’m not touting him, but if the offer came in, I’d have to consider. Fortunately, Hale End has provided me with one Rory Seymour, who is also left footed, natural left winger but also capable of cutting in from the right as a IF or IW. So, don’t really have the conundrum of how to replace Saka if he does go. Plays in every game except the final (Peter Bosz was the ma
  4. Good old fashioned beat down. 7-1 to the Arsenal. Seymour, 19 year old academy product, first PL game for the Arsenal replacing an injured Zaniolo at half-time. Moved Saka to the right, Seymour scored from the left wing; when Saka was exhausted moved Seymour to the right, scored again. Finished by sending a long ball counter from a Chelsea corner for Haaland to get his hat trick. Would have been POM if not for Haaland's 3g, 1a performance. Not totally green player. He spent his age 17-18 season with QPR in the Championship (28GP 10g, 6a) and age 18-19 season with Fulham in the P
  5. Lost in the 2025 FA Cup semi-finals on penalties to Championship side Watford, who had brought in Rúnarsson as their keeper.
  6. FM22 will be the first time I manage Arsenal without European competition.
  7. Haven’t experienced that in a while.
  8. I'm five years in and haven't noticed a significant decrease in performance.
  9. Got an email indicating I was set for club record points haul of 99 points. For some reason my record table says 99 points is my record, but I gathered 102 points in that season.
  10. I signed him to another deal through 2026 with the intention of using him as an every other game player, sub, and mentor. He's still the club captain, but then only started him in three matches (none in the league), and he got another ten appearances (five in the league) from the bench (not entirely his fault - my fullbacks and midfielders required subs more than Haaland). Auba was then crow-barred by Father Time at the end of March 2024, out 3-4 months with a serious hip injury, basically missing the remainder of the season. Since then, Martinelli has usurped him in terms of productivit
  11. Haven't restarted an Arsenal save, but continuing on with my first. Have built a monster first XI. Tallest in the league. GK: Szczesney, 6'5" RB: Mert Mülder, 6'2" DCR: Anel Ahmedhodzic, 6'5" DCL: Gabriel, 6'3" LB: Riccardo Calafiori, 6'2" MCR: Gaetano Castrovilli, 6'2" MCL: Teun Koopmeiners, 6'0 AMR: Reiss Nelson, 5'9" AMC: Dominik Szoboszlai, 6'1" AML: Bukayo Saka, 5'10" ST: Erling Haaland, 6'4" S1: Karl Jakob Hein (GK), 6'5" ( for injured Emiliano Martinez, 6'4") S2: Dan-Axel Zagadou (DCL), 6'5" (William Saliba (DCR), 6'
