  1. I got an excellent prospect in my first season but nothing else since. Agreed with above to look at DoF as well as increasing facilities. But yeah I get your point, it is frustrating.
  2. That sounds pretty hardcore but yes I think I'll give it a go!
  3. Hey, I always get so bored with my FM saves in my second season. I have tried the team I support, lower league, foreign leagues, CL favorite teams. I enjoy the first season so much and I enjoy the summer transfer window but when it gets to the second season I become so bored. Anyone else feels the same? It's such a shame because I would love to have a save that is multiple seasons long but I can never manage to do it. I Just end up starting the game all over again with a new team and the same thing always happens.
  4. I have a 17 year old striker that has hit the back of the net a few times for me, mostly in cup games but a few times in the league too. I keep him in the under 18s and promote him to the first for the games I play him in. He is currently going through a bit of a drought for the first team but seems to score for fun for the under 18s. I wonder what I should do, leave him in the under 18s and let him keep scoring and do not bring him back to the first team for a while. Move him to the under 23s, is there a benefit to that or is under 18s football better for him? Or just keep doing what I am doing and hope he gets on in off his backside in the next match. Any advice? Distonio
  5. Hey I was top on the last day of the season for about 30 minutes. Other results went against me. Including my own and I ended up finishing 3rd. My fans and the board didn't seem too distraught that I didn't manage to win as I was never expected to win the league. I am though. We were so close. I'm trying to use it as motivation to challenge again / win it next year but I'm struggling. So I thought I would turn to you guys for some support. What's the closest you have coming to winning the league? How did you kick on for the next season? Cheers. Distonio.
  6. I'm currently managing Arsenal and I am trying to get players from borussia monchengladbach, Sevilla, PSG and Juventus. I understand I probably have to pay over the odds to attract them away from their clubs as they are not small clubs. I just dont know if 30k pw for a 16 year old is stupid. When they are probably a season away from getting in the first team. But if I wait until next season will I be able to sign them for a couple of million if at all? What would you do?
  7. Is it worth a signing a newgen with great stats for a 16 year old but with a determination stat of 4? Is he worth buying and sticking in a mentoring group or would you avoid newgens with determination that low? If anyone could help me with this or link me to the answer I'd appreciate it. Thanks. Distonio
  8. Hey guys. I have found some great newgens with great stats. I have managed to have bids accepted on a few of them for a few million quid. When it comes to negotiating a contract a lot of them want 30k pw. And will walk away from the negotiations if I drop it any lower. I get that they are young, may have only recently signed a contract and dont want to move away but just wondered is it worth paying them that much money without the option of increasing it after a 20 matches for example and hope they develop quick enough to be involved in my first team. In which case 30k pw is not too bad if they are contributing to results. Knowing that they will likely develop really well. My question is, would you offer a 16 year old newgen with amazing potential that kind of money. Is there a better way of doing business. Waiting a season and monitoring etc? Distonio.
  9. Thanks. That's all I needed to know.
  10. I just want to know as Dani Alves is out or contract in the first season. Is he worth signing as a back up / experienced right back or should I look to invest the 100k pw wages he is asking somewhere else or into a promising right back for the future? Has anyone used Dani Alves in the second season? Thanks.
  11. Do you have the other leagues loaded as playable?
  12. Hi guys, I just wandered if there was a reason Paris Saint-Germains short name is Paris SG and not PSG. I am more familiar with them being called PSG rather than Paris SG. I know this is an official nickname but just wandered if they are known in France or by their fans as Paris SG rather than PSG. Distonio
  13. Hi guys, I am a third of the way into a season. I noticed that when I am in the tactics screen all 3 of my formations have a very low tactical familiarity and rated awkward. But when I change tactics mid game the tactics bar is fully green and all rated fluid. Anyone know why this is? Do i need to get mu coached to concentrate on tactics for a while to improve the familiarity? What's the best way of improving this? Thanks. Distonio
  14. Hey everyone. I am just wondering how you as a manager cope with a long term injury. My captain has just sustained an injury that will keep him out for 9 months. Im currently in Feb. So his season is over and he will have next to no preseason. The team is doing well this season. We are challenging in the league and fighting many other teams for a play-off position and doing well in the EFL Trophy. The January window has come and gone so I cant get a replacement. I dont really have the funds to anyway. I guess the point of my post is that i feel gutted for my captain. He will miss the battle for a playoff place. Could miss the playoffs and could miss winning a trophy. This obviously happens in real life. And if we got to the final i imagine my team wearing tee shirts with the caption "do it for the captain". But i love looking at players histories and biographies and i feel aggrieved that when i look at his it may not have the trophies that we go on to win this season. Am i the only that feels gutted in real life, does anyone take it personally. How do you cope with long term injuries? Cheers, Distonio
