  1. Really annoying transfer dealings coming up at the moment. I'm Southampton, it's about 2038 and we've won the League 4 of the last 5 seasons and the Champions League once and are 5th in World Rep. Bought a top English keeper for £85m four years ago (think my DoF overpaid a bit) but he's now 25 and England's number one and voted second best keeper in the world last season. Over 4 years left on his contract and Chelsea (not ranked above me) offer £52m for him. I turn it down and he throws his toys out the pram, loses all his morale and agitates the squad! When irl would this happen? At
  2. My DoF making a contract offer for a striker. We are Southampton fresh from a third consecutive Premier League title. The striker is a 20 year old regen who spent 3 seasons at Hyde Utd (Vanarama North) and two seasons at Mansfield (League 1) before being released. He has never played a game but apparently 'he could be a player to keep an eye on in the future'?!
  3. Both my full backs have complained that they aren't getting enough game time, even though I rotate and start them both probably 75% of all games. Simultaneously I get messages to say they are tired and should be rested. I don't always do it but when I approach them about it they're fine, but then two weeks later they're kicking off as I haven't kept my promise to give them 'fair' game time?!
  4. How many times can do I need to say it's cool to see a player score for their country?!
  5. My Under 23s manager playing one of my reserve goalkeepers outfield in a lot of games when we have perfectly good outfield players (often in that position) sat on the bench.
  6. Don't know if anything has changed in the game, but I've played 3 games this morning and had two goals confirmed by VAR which looked offside and previously would have been disallowed every time?
  7. In my game it's June 2033; Ole is still manager of Man Utd. Lampard was sacked by Chelsea in Feb 2032. He has been manager of Milan since 2032. Pep was manager of Man C until 2026 (sacked), at Spurs 2026-2030 (sacked) and has been Spain manager since 2030. Pochettino was Man City manager for nearly 4 years before getting the boot and Tuchel has been in charge since June 2030. Klopp was sacked by Liverpool in May 2028 and went on to be France manager for 2 years before retiring totally. After sacking Klopp, Liverpool had Allegri for nearly 3 years (resigned) and then Unai
  8. I've noticed that defenders are definitely in the 'if in doubt, get it out' camp. Often they just blaze the ball into Row Z behind the goal under little or no pressure. Indeed in my Champions League game against Real Madrid yesterday, my goalie rolled it out to my CB (I have play out of defence set) about 10 yards out from goal; he took two touches then turned round and smashed it into the crowd behind the goal! Now this is very unusual, but often the defenders make no attempt to clear for a throw in, or keep it in play, rather they choose to just hoof it behind for a corner.
  9. Not sure what I pay my performance analyst for. I'm Southampton, and finished a fortunate 3rd in the Premiership last season. Playing home v Real Madrid in the Champions League - "This should be a close contest between two evenly matched teams". Playing away in the Carabao Cup v Ipswich (7th in League 1) - "This should be a close contest between two evenly matched teams". In fact it is the same for every single team I play; it's not the biggest thing but just one of the little annoyances that I find in the game. It's lucky the ME is so good...
  10. First game after update and we had 6 bookings (only 36 in previous 25 league games this season) but the crazy thing was a VAR check for a penalty that decided it was not a penalty!!! It wasn't even one of those "in or out the box?" ones, just a 'foul' that went to VAR and just wasn't given. Never seen it before. Luckily I still won else I'd be raging!
  11. No worries, luckily I have a 16 year old daughter and she was happy to help me as she is getting my old laptop!
  12. I've got a new laptop and have loaded Steam on and have loaded FM21. I thought that I could load up my previous save (saved to the cloud) but it seems to be not there and it's treating me like a completely new player. What am I doing wrong?
  13. When I have attacking corners, I like to leave two players on the edge of the box to try and pick up any headers out and stop breakaways. The trouble is you can only put them next to each other at the nearer side to where the corner is taken from, not one either side like I'd prefer. When the oppo leave one in the middle of the 'D', 90% of the time headers out drop straight to him and he runs off with it anyway. Is there any way of changing it or is leaving two next to each other pointless?
