  1. ★The Squad★ Goalkeepers [1] Fraser Forster (GK): Saints' number one goalkeeper since departing Celtic after almost 200 appearances and 102 clean sheets to return to the Premier League and play a part in the next stage of Southampton’s growth under the tutelage of Senior Goalkeeping Coach Dave Watson. [13] Alex McCarthy (GK): Is a capable deputy to Forster, having cut short his time at Selhurst Park to join up with Southampton, and GK coach Dave Watson, on a three-year contract following the departure of Paulo Gazzaniga on loan to Rayo Vallecano. [41] Harry Lewis (GK)
  2. ★Stadium★ St Mary's Stadium has been home to the Saints since August 2001. It has a capacity of 32,689 and is one of only a handful of stadia in Europe to meet UEFA's Four Star criteria. The stadium has also been host to a number of international games. The ground's record attendance is 32,363, set in a game between Southampton and Coventry City in April 2012. St Marys Stadium - Home of Southampton FC. It replaced The Dell in 2001. The club's training facilities, Staplewood, are located in Marchwood on the edge of the New Forest. The current facilities were opened in Nove
  3. ★★★Welcome to the FM17 Southampton FC Thread ★★★ Southampton FC club logo - Nicknamed The Saints, they currently play their football in England's top tier. ★Introduction★ The Saints experienced yet another summer of upheaval and change ahead of their 2016/17 season in the Premier League. It is now the third successive season that departures of key players and managers have hampered preparations ahead of a new campaign, and while the Liebherr family, Ralph Krueger and Les Reed have answered critics in the past many will begin to wonder whether this is the s
  4. Looks like you are using the Metalic Logos. Bournemouth's badge ID is 600. If you go to Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2017\graphics\logos\clubs\normal Then search '600' - Can you see the Bournemouth logo?
  5. No! Nothing to do with the install. Your game is fine. You are using an old logo pack, that doesn't have the 3 promoted teams in. Check out the links suggested above for an up to date logo pack.
  6. The biggest thing for me is alot of the games loose comparability. For example the team guides on the forums. Some people could be playing as Southampton in a NO BREXIT scenario, versus someone playing as Southampton in a hard BREXIT scenario. You cannot pit your wits as a manager against other people as it is no longer a level playing field.
  7. I stand corrected chap! Jumping on a Inter save to kick off the weekend! They're my FIFA team so all ways like to have a game running on FM simultaneously.
  8. This is impressive. You got 3 goals out of Aristeguieta?! That's more than he's given me all season. Would love to see your Formation and Team instructions?
  9. Wow. That's a great start - Keep us posted! That puts me to shame. I am having a real poor season! Made some dreadful tactical decisions and rotten luck with injuries!! Sitting 15th after Christmas. I'd leave my nan out in the rain for a win.
  10. Agreed. The facilities are top class & If you enjoy the challenge of brining youth through to the first team - You have plenty of opportunity!
  11. Definitely recommend it Jibby. No, no point deduction this season. Expectation is "Not to be outclassed on too many occasions". You have the option for consolidation or to avoid relegation also. The embargo is entertaining. It was enforced because Nantes signed Bangoura whilst he was technically under contract still for Al-Nasr. I think they had to pay around 4m euros for compensation!
  12. Up & running! Updates and formatting taking part over the weekend but jump in and get the ball rolling, keen to hear how you all fare in Ligue 1! I am approaching December so will post a winter update over the weekend! Allez La Maison Jaune!

  14. [/url] FORMATIONS 4-1-4-1 Choosing the correct formation is very much about applying a structure that best suits the players you have. This is a my personal option and one I feel that suits Nantes very well. Defensively Nantes are sound, I chose to sit Gomis infront of the back 4 with the acknowledgement that bothwingers and full backs are provided licence to attack. Lucas Deaux in CM has defensive duties and a 'Hold Position' PPI to enable a structure to remain whilst the more creative Veretout pushes on as a roaming playmaker to tuck in behind the lone striker to ensure he is n

  16. [/url] HISTORY In 1943, Nantes had five football clubs (Saint-Pierre, Stade Nantais UC, AC Batignolles, ASO Nantaise and Mellinet). However, Mellinet's manager realised that Nantes could have a better chance of sporting success ifall five clubs merged into one. Following the merger of all five clubs into FC Nantes, Saupin declared, "Today we are a small team, but we will become a great team if we work together one day". On 1 June 1963, the club won its place in the first division against Sochaux. Marcel Saupin died on 10 June and would never see the club he created amongst the eli
  17. [/url] Welcome To The FM15 Thread - FC Nantes FC Nantes Club Logo - Currently playing in Ligue 1 - The top tier of the French National League. INTRODUCTION Despite being a team rich in history with an avid and loyal group of supporters Nantes return to the top tier of French football last season was certainly eventful and not for the feint hearted. With highs & lows both on and off the field, the FC Nantes soap opera is sure to continue in 2015 & they are anything but a dull choice in this years edition of Football Manager. After a successful season finishing 13th in
