    Your Most Memorable Saves

    27 ish years at Salford on FM18 before my file was lost. Had a great young team ready to take over, narrowly missed out on the PL a couple of times, got as far as the CL QFs and won both domestic cups.

    penaltys in every 2/3 games

    I've had one penalty for me and none against in my last 20 games.
  3. Strikers are utterly useless on this, lack of movement and awful finishing. Not had a striker get more than 9 goals in 5.5 seasons yet. Doesn't even make a difference by switching to a 4312, poor finishing 1v1 and too many blocked shots. Of course the AI don't have these issues, regularly scoring with their first shot or two on target whilst your forwards huff and puff every game. Two recent games saw us have 32 shots vs 5 and draw 1-1 and before that 22 shots to 8 and lose 1-0. Throw ins were good on the beta but are back to FM18 standards now of the ball being thrown anywhere but to your player. The FBs dwell on the ball far too much, their positioning when they're open to the pass is poor, often with their back to goal and having to pass the ball straight back but even when they have acres of space they just wait to be closed down before getting tackled, passing the ball back or drilling it into the shins of the defender in a best impression of Antonio Valencia. And it's not the tactics as everything else is going to plan apart from the lack of goals which doesn't make sense considering the formation. I feel like I'm watching the same game every single match.
  4. Yes, it's in the tools section of your library on steam.

    FM19- Bundesliga Thread

    Managed 13th in my first season in the Bundesliga with Dresden after a net spend of just £1.6m in the transfer market.
  8. Love the inbox items you get regarding finances, wages to turnover etc from across the whole league.
  9. Whenever you have to sub a player off due to injury you can't use the widget to give shouts etc and you lose the match timeline at the top.
  10. Don't worry, there will be a community release for the 3rd tier and below soon after the full release.

    First season we (Dresden) faced Bayern Munich at home, we lost the game 1-0 to a second half penalty. Second season we got to the 3rd round but lost 5-2 at Hoffenheim.
  13. It seems to happen only when you have to sub a player off due to injury.

    FM19- Bundesliga Thread

    Most notable signings were Weston McKennie on loan for the season, Franck Evina from Bayern on a season's loan and Julian Schieber also on loan for the season and then permanent signings was a 22yo German CB for £1.3m (potentially rising to £1.9m) from Ingoldstadt and then a 25yo CM from Aue for £1.1m. Then I needed a GK so I signed Raphael Wolf from Dusseldorf for £125k, picked up a yoof from Bayern on a free, 15yo FB that I'm retraining as a CB and a couple of loans. All transfer business included we had a net spend of just £1.7m.
  15. Yep, into my second season now.
  16. Sometimes during a game the widget to make subs or change tactics is greyed out. I had an injury in the 53rd minute where the player had to go off, I made the change and then the widget was greyed out for the rest of the game.
  17. There will be a 3rd tier and below release by the community around the full release.
