  1. FM16: A New Batch Of Nordic Talent

    Hoarau, which skin are you using to show the background pictures?
  2. Hi, I'm currently in my second season with my beloved Newcastle. My first season ended with a respectable 10th place, which was satisfying enough. I lost Ben Arfa to City in January, and in the summer Remy and De Jong headed back to their parent clubs. None of them impressed, so I didn't even try to make the deals permanent. Remy actually startet 25 games for me, and dindn't find the net once! Unbelievable! In the summer I managed to bring in Steven Caulker, Danny Ings, Anthony Knockaert, Mohammed Salah (on loan), as well as Fausto Rossi on a free. Before my second season I was pretty happy with my first eleven, but felt that my thin squad and lack of strength in depth would give me problems when the games started to come thick and fast. I have been relatively lucky with injuries except for Sissoko (which has meant that Gosling has got much game time!). In February 2015 I'm sitting 2nd, around 10 points behind leaders Chelsea, but are 12 points ahead of Man United who sit in 5th place. I haven't had any success with Newcastle the last versions, so I'm kinda surprised that I am doing so well. Is it easy being NUFC on this year's game, or am I just good at doing my job? Mathial
  3. Hi guys, Has anyone else noticed that Willian suddenly has become a beast after 14.3.0. I'm currently halfway trough my first season with Newcastle, and Willian so far has got 18 goals and 10 assists for Chelsea who are topping the league. He has an average rating of 8.20! Was he this good before the latest patch? His stats and skills are not that good, but "the special one" certainly knows how to use him in the right way! Mathial
  4. Is there any difference between the 2D and the 3D match engine?
  5. I have also looked at goals of the month, but yet to see screamers from open play. Good to hear that some of you at least have experienced it! It is though a bit strange that some have seen it quite 'often', while others haven't seen it at all.
  6. Hi, What has happened to long shots in FM14? I never ever see "screamers" going in.. In real life football you see it almost every week, in FM14 it is non-existing. Every time my midfielders try to shot from outside the box the shot either gets blocked or goes well wide. Has anyone noticed the opposite or do you agree? Other than that I must say that it is a great game. Mathial
  7. Stevemc; Nowhere to be found, then?
  8. Stevemc, can I ask what skin you're using? Looks fantastic!
  9. Anyone knows what skin TH-786 is using? It looks brilliant!
  10. Hi guys, Do you see long shots going in in your games? I've barely seen a screamer from outside the box from one of my players. I play with Chelsea, and players like Lampard and Hazard often takes long shots but it always results in a poor and weak finish directly at the GK or miles way off target. Anyone else experiencing this? I still haven't started a new game after 14.2.0 (only continued my current game), but I guess that won't affect the ME in terms of long shots. Looking forward to hearing from you guys:) Mathial
  11. I see very few screamers in the game. Also the strikers tend to shoot directly at the goalkeeper. Could this be because I've not started a new game after 14.2.0/1?
  12. Lack of dribbling?

    Sorry about the lack of information. Hazard has played as an inside forward on the left side, while Oscar mostly as a winger (right) and advanced playmaker (AMC). I've also set Hazard to the "dribble more" instruction. Another thing, why is it not impossible to make wingers and inside forwards cut inside? This option is greyed out in player instructions.. Mathial
  13. Hi, I've played around 15 matches with Chelsea on 14.1.4, and I've yet to see some nice dribbling runs. Players like Oscar and Hazard never run past players when they're in one on one situations. They either play the ball to the MC/AMC or run into the defender and loose the ball. Have you seen amazing dribbling runs in the latest patch? Mathial
  14. Hi, Is it possible to update to version 14.1.3 for the demo? So far I have only played the 14.1.1 version, and the amount of shots on goal is not that high in this version. Not that I want this to be the case, but I want to test the latest version to find out whether to buy the game or not. Thanks! Mathial
