  1. This is not logical, not at all.. Although I find it even more unrealistic that PSG would go for Daniel Sturridge:P
  2. FM16: A New Batch Of Nordic Talent

    Hoarau, which skin are you using to show the background pictures?
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. Is there any difference between the 2D and the 3D match engine?
  7. 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.
  8. Stevemc; Nowhere to be found, then?
  9. Stevemc, can I ask what skin you're using? Looks fantastic!
  10. Anyone knows what skin TH-786 is using? It looks brilliant!
  11. 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
  12. 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?
  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. 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
  15. 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
  16. Hi guys, I have just started playing the demo, and after playing a few games I have not experienced the massive amount of clear cut chances that all of you are moaning about. I have checked the match stats in many games, and I have yet to see as many shots (both attempts and on goal) that many of you have registered on version 14.1.3. So, my question is; Are the issues with CCC only represendted in the full game? Mathial
  17. Hei guys, Is it just me or do the centre backs get a little too high match ratings even when they don't score or get clean sheets? In my current game (January 2013) the top 5 average ratings consists of 4 centre backs. Hangeland is top with a rating of 7.85, even though Fulham is sitting 10th and has let in as many goals as their league neighbours. For my Newcastle-team, also the centre backs have done very well despite the fact that I've conceded silly goals. Has anyone else experienced this? Mathial
  18. Hi, I find it very weird that players like Fellaini, Hamsik, Cabaye, Falcao, Lewandowski, Hummels (and many more!) are transfer listed by request (wants to move to a bigger club) already in October 2012. Hummels and Lewandowski play for the second best team in the German Bundesliga. Also on my game several Arsenal players are listed by request due to a poor start, and they think the club is underachieving. No players would request a move after only 8 games! I can see that this can happen once in a while, but it's not common for a player to request a transfer like that, espescially not in October when the transfer window is shut! Comments welcome!
  19. I very much agree with you that on earlier versions it has been too easy to keep hold of your best players. Now you actually don't have a choice if a player wants out, because he's no longer in the right frame of mind to play games. I have recently experienced this with Cabaye at Newcastle, where he now wants out and his morale is abysmal due to the fact that I rejected a bid for him. With abysmal morale, you don't get a game for my team, simple as that;) Let's hope that he changes his mind before January! As you said, Lewandowski is now the latest player from Dortmund to announce that he doesn't want to sign a new contract. I guess this is more down to him seeking a new challenge than to join a 'bigger' club. But this goes the other way around. When AI teams' players asks for a transfer, it is easier for 'us' to pick them up:)
  20. Yeah, I noticed this as well. There are no TV matches in the Premier League in August. Strange..
  21. I bought Andy Carroll to Liverpool for £35. He didn't want to come to me, but he was forced to hand in a transfer request by Mike Ashley!
  22. I've played 12 games into the first season with Arsenal, and I have yet to discover a direct free kick going in. That said, I have only had 1 or 2 direct free kicks outside the box. This is kinda weird. I looked into the team stats and discovered that there were only scored 6 goals from direct free kicks all season. Is it only me? The other leagues I run (Spain and Italy), where almost the same. This hasn't been the case in previous versions of FM. I feel that you don't get any advantages by having players that are good from set pieces, as they never get the chance to score from direct free kicks. Anyone? It clearly can't be my tactics!
  23. system 3d rating

    Hello, I have the same as you, half a star. But what is kinda weird is that the 3D (with all effects enabled) is more fluid than the 2D. The 2D lags a lot, but there's no lagging on the 3D. Anyone know why this is? I have a 1,8 ghz processor and 3 GB ram.
  24. Is it only me or have other experienced that the big teams in Europe seem to buy mediocre/average players as the seasons go by. I'm playing as Newcastle and am now in my 4th season, 3rd in PL. The big teams such as Man Utd, Man City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Spurs don't buy big players who go straight into the sides. Spurs won PL the first season and instead of buying big players they sold Modric to City and didn't buy any replacement. The problem in general is that the big teams don't buy good players to replace players they have sold or players that has retired, they only start to use younger inexperienced players. Ex is Man Utd who now has Rooney, Berbatov, Macheda and Welbeck as their strikers. In many games they start with the Macheda and Welbeck, this would not have happened in real life as they are too unexperienced. Has anyone else seen this? Espescially City who has a lot of money to spend has bought players like Kuzmanovic, Diaby, m.m. Players that are no better than what they have. This is also the case in Spain and Italy. Comments anyone?
