    Wonderkids from minnow nations

    I think it was FM14, but I had a Faroe Islands striker that turned into a beast. He tore the league up for a few seasons until the next game was released. The only disappointing part was that his national performance was incredibly disappointing. Something like 80+ games and 6 goals. I was playing in the Dutch league as Den Haag and he was scoring over 30 a season every year. Ball got to him in the box and you'd be celebrating a goal almost every time. Just a shame about his international career... but I guess he couldn't do it all on his own. One of the most impressive players I've ever signed and cost hardly anything.
  2. Almost the same for me. Over 9.5 and I praise them. That's close to a perfect training week. Less than 6.75 I criticise.
  3. So a player becomes unhappy that you've rejected a bid, even though it wasn't enough to consider selling for. You manage to negotiate a reasonable value that you'd accept if someone came in with it. Will they become unhappy if they come back and bid that amount in instalments or based on certain events? The bid I rejected was made up of values based on goals scored, after x amount of games, etc. I'd want that money up front for a replacement as I'm a fairly small team, so I'm weary now on whether said player will be annoyed if they come back and it's not all up front. Anyone know? I've never really agreed a sell fee with a player as I usually value them a lot higher than the players think they're worth (like a 25 goal a season Prem striker valued at £15m thinking it's unreasonable for me to want just over £20m for him). Basically, will my player only be annoyed if I reject the full amount up front that I've agreed with him, or will he still be unhappy if it's in awful instalments that won't benefit me and the club?

    Why isnt hashtag united in the game?

    It's pretty random considering this:
  5. Hi @Felix I am. I've attached the last two, since they were both for the same patch - but that was 18.2.1 Would be great if it's already been sorted in 18.2.2 FM 2018 v18.2.1.1051982 (2017.12.24 19.52.37).dmp FM 2018 v18.2.1.1051982 (2018.01.14 09.46.02).dmp
  6. This has happened to me twice, and to be honest I've been so annoyed both times that it's happened (because I won both times) that I don't really want to do it again to get a screenshot. It is quite easy to replicate though and I couldn't find that anyone else has mentioned it. You make a sub just before half-time. Like literally just before, so that the game doesn't complete the sub before the half-time whistle - both my times were quick subs due to injuries. You then get a problem that your sub hasn't actually happened. So I make the sub again. The best part is that this actually counts as a second sub, even though it's the first... so I can only make one more sub after that, even though I've only subbed two players, not three. End of the game comes, I give a team talk and the game crashes with an error message, that I thought I had a screenshot of when I showed a mate the first time, but I can't find it. Like I said though, it's pretty easy to replicate by doing the above. I guess the only slightly tricky part is making a sub without it completing before the half-time whistle.
  7. Not at all. Never said that there wouldn't be, just not to hold out hope for any more since there were already loads.
  8. Hoping for updated squads? I'd say that's a given. You wouldn't buy a new game for this season with last seasons squads. Wouldn't hold out for more leagues either. Think it's been said before than there won't be any more leagues added. There's loads as there is. Better international management would be good - particularly when it comes to player selection. Hate it when I get messages about leaving players out that are on good form, when they've played 5 games all season compared to a guy that's played all season and has better average rating. So frustrating, even though it overly doesn't matter.
  9. FM is one of the few games that I'll pre-order, and do so each year. New features or not, the game is pre-ordered. It's just wrong not to have the latest version. I know I'm going to get it anyway so it's no issue for me at all.

    Our Forums are changing

    If a site is built a certain way, there is no desktop and mobile version. It's all the same and scales down. That way the site looks good, fitting everything horizontally so you don't have to scroll sideways or zoom in. Show desktop version only works when someone has a different site entirely for mobile versions, which you can usually see by the URL being m.domain.com instead of www.domain.com. Much better when a site is responsive like this is now - I can chuck it half screen and still read everything perfectly for instance. Also means that developers only have to work on one version, not two so better support when there's problems.
  11. IF a player complains about squad depth, tell them that it's none of their concern. I've found that when they start complaining about squad depth, it's not easy to make them happy again unless you splash the cash on a few players, which isn't easy at small clubs.
  12. Not a problem for me, but on all versions of FM I've always played with wingers and overlapping full backs. I see plenty of goals through the middle of the pitch and even a good portion of mine aren't scored through crosses, even though I'm set up to have my wide players smashing the ball into the box from the wing.
  13. Finishing as runners up in the League by a goal difference of 2. Lost my title by 2 goals.

    Custom team city

    Somewhere in Cornwall. The highest team from there that I know off is Truro. Plus Cornwall is the best, plenty of beautiful places where you could make a team from.
  15. When scouting a player that has 6 months or less on their contract, it would be nice to see something other than "compensation - £0". That's great if I want to sign him on a free, but what if I don't want to wait until the end of the season. So would be good if scouts added something like "but if you want to sign him now, he'd cost you x amount." So at the moment, I'm in desperate need for a left back but have limited funds. Looking at left backs that are running out of contract as I should hopefully be able to sign them on the cheap, but want to know which one would cost less since everyone I've done a scout report on all seem to be good enough and would be happy with any one of the three scouted. Cost would help decide without having to put bids in for all three to see.
