  1. 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.


  2. Well this is going to put a crimp on my usual strategerie of bringing in lots of trialists.

    I've brought in 5 trialists (all of them unattached 17-year-olds; hey, I have an empty U19 team at them moment) so far in preseason. Each one, the media asks if it's possible they could end up as a first-team member. And five times now I've had to say "We don't know. That's why we've brought them in on trial."

    Which is bad for me, because in previous editions of FM I've had as many as a dozen players on trial with us at the same time. I've going to get seriously annoyed with the media. :D

    On a related note, I tend to start saves as American/unemployed/no badges/Sunday League. A couple of times, the media has asked me to comment on MLS coaches who are on the hot seat. Pretty sure IRL literally nobody would seek out my opinion in this scenario.

    To be honest, the issue is nowhere near FM 2015 levels and in fact i think it can be adjusted in the editor. Too many managers have 4-4-2 as preffered formation withouth any DM's and it's exactly those teams that score and concede more than the others. I sincerily doubt that flat 4-4-2 is that much used IRL compared to how it is in FM.


    too bad we don't have a beta editor. :D

     I'm using a flat 4-4-2 with a club in the lowest tier in Northern Ireland atm. In 3 preseason friendlies, the scores have been 1-1, 0-0 and 1-0. :D

    Is there a way to default from 'continue' to 'inbox'? I keep being sent to 'social feed' and sorry, but I don't find anything of the slightest use or interest in there whereas everything of interest appears in the inbox.

    Yes, this.

  4. It's true that following other people's careers is more fun than you'd think. It actually inspires me to start my own careers and I find I'm much better these days at accepting defeat without throwing a tantrum since I started seeing other people take it on the chin.

    I think this forum has also made me take defeat better, when I got relegated with Chapecoense I'd have been furious and wanted to quit but since I had people wanting to know how I get on I carried on and took it on the chin.

    Aye. In the past, if I'd got to "very insecure" or "precarious" on the job status, I probably would have resigned on the grounds of "jump before you're pushed." Think this forum has shown every career has ups and downs (well, except for Raware careers. :D), so just try to push on even as the board are already looking for your replacement.
