    Real Life Career Updates?

    Finally pounced on it. 25% off in the Steam Winter Sale. Same discount as the pre-release "Contract Extension" but that expired before I saw the cool new features. (I presume squad dynamics are working as intended)

    Out Of Africa

    Interesting to see SI program in a club relocation.

    They could also be thinking "If the gaffer blocks Dembele leaving, then he might not let me make a big money move away."

    [FM18] Hapoel Ramat-Gan - Working Class Heroes

    Israel is one of those countries I always want to manage in but it never quite works out.

    Real Life Career Updates?

    Looks like I can wait for a sale (or final patch). (I really do want this version. The scouting and contract changes alone look like it will be worth getting)

    FM18: Memory Lane

    That'll get the dressing room back on side.

    Real Life Career Updates?

    So you're telling me that my decision not to take the "contract extension" offer was the right one.

    Seems a bit odd you should use a photos of a guy who ended up starving to death in the Alaska Interior.

    Oooh, I had considered starting a save as Minnesota or Atlanta in FM 17 and going through the expansion draft but never did it.

    Real Life Career Updates?

    I passed on the "contract extension" discount because the "Dynamics" video had me concerned about the likelihood of bugs. But the changes to scouting and tactics look really good. I never got into FM 17 (think I have only 30-some hours on record) but I'm actually kind of excited about this one. I'll probably still wait until it goes on sale at some point, by which time any bugs likely will have been sorted out. Probably do the usual unemployed/no badges/no rep/journeyman save. Might change up the leagues I load though; usually the squad restrictions some countries have (like "must have two U23 players in the first XI") would put me off until I realized I usually look for those players on free transfer anyway. Might just start with the English-speaking and Spanish-speaking nations because FM gives you fluency in both as an American. I'm getting old though, so I may need to create a manager instead of just plugging myself into the game.

    Hi, rancer. Bye, rancer.

    Video careers, should they be allowed?

    This. I think the nice thing about this forum is it's generally allowed people to post in their own way. Whether that be only after their season concludes, or game-by-game. So if someone wants to post their career updates in video form, I think that's fine. I personally don't watch them, but that's because I prefer to read and detest the "pivot to video" RL sports media outlets are trying to do now. I agree with db though that it shouldn't just be spamming videos to the forum (or driving traffic to your vlog, but I kinda feel the same way if someone were posting links from here to an offline blog where they write up their career). There should be some kind of interaction, even if it's a just a quick "FFS, we just blew a 2-goal lead in stoppage time. "

    Football Manager TV: Scouting

    I thought it might just be me, since I'm used to "league average" and "replacement level" players in the context of US sports.

    I'd also like a "league average" somewhere to be able to make comparisons. OK, this MC in my squad averages 3.7 interceptions. How does that compare to the league average? Is he better than or worse than average? If there's a way to find that, I've never been able to do so.

    If this had been the first video, I would have snapped up the "contract extension" offer.
