  1. FM Careers Forum Discussion

    So I've started a save with my usual starting points (unemployed, Sunday League player, no badges) and I'm one month into the Swedish season with IS Halmia. Which is about 3 weeks further than I've got into any other season on FM 17. Won my first match, then lost 2, then conceded a late equalizer at the bottom side but finally getting a win. So I'm 2-1-2, but unfortunately the board want the team to reach the promotion playoff, and the media is picking us for 3rd. Plus the club is losing money hand over fist (although I'm still well below the wage budget). And I've already cocked up a contract extension by not realizing projected player status (key player, first team player, etc.) is on the initial "promises" screen. Great success!

    There's also FC Santa Claus in Finland, which I remember somewhere here did a save with them a few releases back. Finland is great for team names, I also remember an FC Jazz and FCJ Blackbird. Not a playable league, but Ghana has Hearts of Oak.
  3. "Wing"ing it in Asia...

    Nice start on the mainland.

    Different board, different game but I've been using https://postimages.org and it seems to work out well.

    Been a while since I've been in this part of the forum. Quite a few new faces. Haven't really got into FM17 but going to take another bash at it now. Going to use the same journeyman/no badges/Sunday League football approach, but with a couple changes: At least to start, I'll have all the English- (well, except ROI/WAL/NIR) and Spanish-speaking leagues loaded (figuring since FM gives us Yanquis fluency in English and en Espanol at the start). And historically I've avoided league where there's squad rules like "Two players in starting XI must be 23 years or younger", realizing that most of my saves I've looked for young players to stock my squad.
  6. MLS Player Values

    I'm not sure how you would arrive at that valuation though. The NFL of course has a "trade value chart" for draft picks, but AFAIK there's no similar thing in MLS. Plus, IRL the draft has lessened in importance as academies have come on line and begun churning out players.
  7. [U.S.A.] (Official) League Specific Issues

    Dunno if the licensing allows, but the MLS fixture list is out and for the first time includes a break for the Gold Cup (group stage) http://www.mlssoccer.com/schedule/2017/announcement
  8. [U.S.A.] (Official) League Specific Issues

    Excellent. I must have missed that in the change list, and I withdraw my objection.
  9. [U.S.A.] (Official) League Specific Issues

    Playing everyone in your conference twice, and everyone in the other conference once. Results in a 31-game schedule. (at least, the last I'd seen of it. Perhaps it's been changed)
  10. [U.S.A.] (Official) League Specific Issues

    @Max Clayton-Robb so what effect will that have on MLS scheduling in the game once the league announces the 2017 fixture list (likely next month)? Will it continue with the incorrect 2x1 scheduling?
  11. FM Careers Forum Discussion

    Anyway, haven't started a save yet because of the issue with the MLS scheduling. (SI taking a guess at what the scheduling will be like with Atlanta and Minnesota coming in). Maybe I'll start when MLS announces the fixture list (should be next month), and SI gets it coded in. (Although when I linked to a Salt Lake blogger tweeting a couple days ago that their GM said 2 Homegrown slots are being added to the roster, one of the SI people said "This is good to know, but our license is for the 2016 season.")

    "We're on to Southampton." "What about your striker? He seemed to do his knee quite badly." "We're on to Southampton." "But your defense just conceded 5 goals." "We're on to Southampton."
  13. [U.S.A.] (Official) League Specific Issues

    MLS to add 2 Homegrown Player slots to the roster (Craig Waibel is the Real Salt Lake general manager; this is from a town hall meeting last night):
