  1. In my Newcastle save, we got taken over and the first thing the Chairman did was sign 2 players..Dani Olmo (£17.5m) and Pedrinho (£20m) - both rated highly but havent really set the league alight after 19 games tbh. This was the first time I seen this happen in FM and it looked as though it didnt come out of my transfer fund as they offered me a transfer pot of £50m.
  2. Ignore this...I obviously did not read this properly ....says 16th in the form table
  3. Having been beating by West Ham and about to play Chelsea (I am Newcastle), the press interviewer mentioned that I am 16th in the table....however, after drawing 1-1 with Chelsea, I am currently 8th and looking at the points, it is mathematically impossible for me to be 16th before the game.
  4. I bought mine from 2game and currently playing beta...
  5. I had an up and down 1st season with Newcastle - managed to win the league cup but struggled in the prem and managed to finish 10th by the skin of my teeth...during that time, the club was sold and I was giving £130mil to spend in the next summer window by the new owner. Sold lot of the deadwood and bought some new players and went on a unbeaten first half of the 2nd season, only drawing 2 in all competitions. However, I struggled a bit during the 2nd half and had to tweak my tactics a lot more and just managed to win the league.
  6. I signed him on a free for Newcastle in the first transfer window for only £25k a week so was happy to pick up that cost during his ban....however, coming back from his ban his performance has been rather mediocre (particularly giving away a lot of passes). I was more than happy to sell in during the next summer transfer window for £12.5 mil! Weirdly enough due to an issue with my beta save (which got resolved) I setup a new game save with Newcastle again and this time he wanted £100k a week wages....at that point i definitely declined his request.
  7. Its crazy how much the agent fees are but will assume this will replicate real life which is just absurd! I went to sign Harry Maguire as he was interested in joining with the 30 mil fee agreed with the club...he only wanted 2.6mil signing on fee but the agent wanted 7mil!! Needless to say I withdraw my offer for him as that was ridiculous. I then went to sign Trippier instead at a much cheaper signing on fee
  8. Well I can partially agree that it can seem easy - however, during my first season at Newcastle, although I won the Carbaro Cup I had the typical up and down season and finished 10 (though it wasnt looking that way as the season drew to the end).. What did happen was Mike Ashley finally sold the club and had £130m to spend in the summer, got rid of the dead wood and brought in around 7 players......so far in my 2nd season, I have played 37 (including friendlies and EURO), lost 0 and only drew 2!! Currently top of the league in December...only by 5 points however as Chelsea and Liverpool have been right in the mix since the beginning!
  9. This is the same for me. It is the first time in many many years that I been playing in 2D (3D during replays) and actually enjoying it so the commentary comes in handy. Its also been in Champ Man and FM ever since day one and would not feel the same if it was removed.
  10. Hi all, Anyone else noticed with this year's version with the implementation of the new Dynamics system that your nominated Captain refuses to perform of his duties? More noticeably when I sign a player and ask the Captain to welcome into the squad or ask them to speak to an unhappy player...they say its not their responsibility and refuse to do it. This seems to be a common theme with Team Leaders/Highly Influential players and there has been a couple of occasions that I had to ask an 'Influential' player to do it as the rest wouldnt.... For me, this goes against the role of Captain and have been tempted to remove the armband from these players but yet to do so as I fear a backlash....
  11. I agree on this - found it extremely tough this year (I did in beta for 2017 but not as much than this version). I started with Newcastle and sacked after 3 months, tried multiple tactics and was just leaking in goals all the time (particularly the keeper pushing the ball into his own net quite often) - now I am with Birmingham and only won 9 out of 25 since I took over in January...tinkered around with the tactics but in a way, it means I am now getting a better understanding of how they work instead of downloading from the Workshop!
  12. I am running that version now but I didnt notice the update prior to getting the error - I believe it was 6-7 GMT I first loaded FM18 and I would have likely received the update after reloading following the crash. I will now monitor to see if I get it again now I have the update.
  13. Hi, I have now encountered 2 game crashes within the last 3 days (RL) after a match finishes and goes to the full time screen (before full time dressing room team talk). It appears to be random and after task killing and reloading the game, it continues without issue. Both issues occur at full time (see example screenshot) and the game crashes/freezes - clicking any section of the screen has no affect and only option is to task kill. I have attached a copy of my dxdiag and also my save game up until the last crash (reloading the game progresses without issue). Save game uploaded to FTP in /fm/game-crash/BETA - Crash.fm Unfortunately the crash is random so not able to provide anything other than that - however, it is not something I have encountered with FM17 and believe will need to be resolved otherwise will cause some level of frustration over my (and maybe others) game time going forward.

  14. For me it depends how much I get into this save......whereas for FM17, I played 480 hours (up until last week) and was still in my beta save (11th season). Been a few bugs in this version, particularly my keeper(s) knocking the ball into the net a fair few times.
