  1. Has he played regularly for PSG? Have they bought another player in his position? Has he been injured and not developed as expected? IRL they will buy him next summer (2018), but a lot of things can change in two years that can influence a player's career. I also see that Chelsea bought Renato. If Chelsea had bought him on FM17 after two years, I guess you would have thought the same thing, unrealistic. Well today he is warming the bench for Swansea, so anything can happen in football.
  2. This is absolutely horrific! A team such as Inter should be ambitious and sign good replacements! I really hope SI anwer and look into this. This is without doubt a game-breaker!
  3. Hi, Is it just me or do players never seem to dribble in FM18? In FM17, some players could dance through a defense if they had good dribbling abilities, but in FM18 I feel that the players just play a support passes instead of using ther accelaration and dribbling skills.. What is your experience?
  4. Dribbling

    Are you playing on 2D or 3D?
  5. Thanks for your swift answer. Then I will sort it out:)
  6. Where is the default background file located? I can't find \skins\fm-widgets\graphics\backgrounds..
  7. Hi, Has anyone else noted that the opposition manager fields players that are injured? I played a Crystal Palace-side where 4 players had the "inj" tag. This happens almost every match, resulting in the fact that the AI manager has to make substitutions early on.. This must surely be a bug?
  8. Okay. Thanks for the quick answer. I fully agree with you on this, but it would depend on the type of injury. For example, why risk a star player in a normal PL-game if the consequence is that he will be out for a longer period of time?
  9. Highlights from crosses

    I thnk it has been fixed now in the latest hotfix..
  10. This is not logical, not at all.. Although I find it even more unrealistic that PSG would go for Daniel Sturridge:P
  11. FM16: A New Batch Of Nordic Talent

    Hoarau, which skin are you using to show the background pictures?
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. Is there any difference between the 2D and the 3D match engine?
  16. 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.
  17. Stevemc; Nowhere to be found, then?
  18. Stevemc, can I ask what skin you're using? Looks fantastic!
  19. Anyone knows what skin TH-786 is using? It looks brilliant!
  20. 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
  21. 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?
  22. 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
