  1. No, and while I haven't played the latest update post winter transfers, I still regularly receive this news item.
  2. As an FM Touch player I would like the ability to filter players by attributes, age, contract expiry, wage *on the squad pages*. The use case is to have the ability to find players who don't ordinarily appear on the player search screen by visiting their club squad page and filtering to show only those who meet a given search criteria. (I assume low scouting knowledge of the nation the clubs are in is the reason these players don't appear on player search screen). This is something I work around by using custom views in the squad page.
  3. Hi @Walrus It was on PC as I prefer the Touch version of the game as I do not have much free time to play. I had to wait a few months to get an update on the exact rules but I did get two updates in 2018, followed by one in 2019 round about the time the UK left the EU.
  4. Thanks @mozza79 for giving your experience. I'm keen to do similar. I notice the wages/value of UK/Ireland based players is very high for what you get, so it may be cheaper to go down that route. Good to know the scout reports advice around work permits can be ignored too (again from your experience).
  5. I'm playing FM Touch 2019 as Celtic. Prior to Britain leaving the EU, I got this message I'm now past this date (25th June 2019) and I'm attempting to sign players, however there's a disparity between my understanding and what I see in my scout reports. How work permits are awarded My understand of the new work permit rules is If I want to sign a player for first team football - I need to pay him at least £8k p/w. If I want to sign a player and loan him out / play him in reserve matches - he must be Under 23 and paid a minimum of £3k p/w. Or... to put it another way - I can sign anyone, from any country on at least £8k p/w and they will get a work permit for first team football. Is this understanding correct? Scout Advice on Work Permits In spite of the new rule (unfortunately no image to attach at this time) my scout reports still advise "Work Permit Unlikely" for non UK/Ireland players. I would have anticipated that this advice, based on the new rule around wages, be null and void. I.e. they could advise "you must pay £8k p/w to obtain a work permit for this player". Why is the advice on work permits still given? Does this affect the Scout Recommendation value (the number from 0-100) that they give? Delay to obtain work permit Finally - I note that when a non UK/Ireland player signs a Work Permit is applied for them. I would have imagined it to be automatic, but can accept if it's a simple delay to reflect a real-world scenario of paperwork being generated. Why is there a delay - and can the work permit be rejected if the contract is equal to or above the minimum wage requirements?
  6. Sorry took a while to get back to this. I have now uploaded the save game called "John McParland - Celtic.fmt" Somewhat usefully, I've just had Pedro Gallesse and Connor Hazard (also a GK at Celtic) complain about the training unit. They are 2 out of 3 of the last news items.
  7. Here are a couple of screenshots to highlight what I believe has changed from Football Manager 2018 Touch and Football Manager Touch 2018 FMT 2018 Note her ethat the "Roles" drop down says "Currently selected roles for tactic" and the "Show" drop down is "All (Current Ability)" FMT 2019 Now in this case, the "Roles" drop down says "Players best role" and the "Show" drop down is "All (Current Ability)". I cannot select another option for "Roles". I would expect the same configuration is available in FMT 2019 as was in 2018 (i.e. star rating for current tactic roles).
  8. Playing FM Touch 2019 latest version. I have manually set the training both at a team focus (changes each month) and at an individual level. Typically the training is focussed around the role I want the player to play (e.g. for all GKs it is "Sweeper Keeper (Defend duty)"). In addition, I add focus for a weaker area. I get a number of reports that a player believes they should be focussing on some other aspect of training. That is fine. However for my goalkeeper, Pedro Gallese, I get "Pedro Gallese thinks his training unit is not getting enough attention". In this context, what is the "training unit"? Could the text be more specific is this is an area I should be aware of when playing the game? See the attached screenshot for more information.
  9. Thanks for this Luke - the functionality you describe does work. However I was looking to see the coaches rating of the Current Ability in the selected roles. I believe this functionality was present in FM Touch 2018. I make use of this functionality to determine the roles to use in my tactic, based on how well my current players can perform in those roles. An example from playing the game - I have selected a 4-1-4-1 DM Wide formation (or 433 where there's a DM and the two wide midfield players play on the AM line). I wanted to select the 3 central midfield roles (including the DM one) to create balance in the tactic, but also to best utilize the players in the squad. I initially selected DM - Ball Winning Midfielder (Defend) MC - Mezzala (Support) MC - DLP (Defend) However, as Celtic, I found that the players at my disposal don't suit the Ball Winning Midfielder role in the DM position. In FM Touch 2018, a Star Rating for the players suitability in the role was provided. In FM Touch 2019, I need to look at a combination of Role Suitability and my own judgement on ability. Once I did this, I changed the roles DM - DLP (D) MC - B2B MC - Mezz This could be clearer by providing the star rating for the currently selected roles in the tactic. Thanks, John
  10. When I browse to "Team Report" from the left hand menu and select "Squad Depth" from the top menu I am presented with menus for Show Formation Roles Opinion Of Customizations Filtered When I select "Show" as "All (Current Ability)", Formation (current formation - a saved one) the "Roles" menu is disabled and only allows the option "Player's best role". This is with the "Opinion Of" being my assistant manager and the "Customization" On or Off. I would expect to be able to select any one of the options under the "Roles" menu. In fact it's never possible (to the best that I can tell) to alter this.
  11. I also have the same problem on FM Touch. I'm using the Dark skin. Resolution is 1920x1080 in windowed mode. The issue was present without any custom graphics. Attributes missing are Judging Player Ability Judging Player Potential Judging Player Data (List may be incomplete). I'll try to add a screenshot later or tomorrow.
  12. Would anyone else like to share their tactics for Celtic? I'm having a surprising struggle - first save I got sacked in Feb of 1st season after falling to 4th in the league (yet making CL group stage). On my second save, I've made the CL groups, but already showing signs of struggle in the SPFL Premiership. This is off the back of FM 15 where in four seasons I won - 2 x Europa League - 4 x SPL - 2 x Scottish Cup - 2 x Scottish League Cup As well as reaching the Quarter Final and Semi Final of the Champions League in two further seasons. On the first save I played a 4231 (Wide) with GK - Gordon (SwKp, D) DR - Lustig (WB, Au) DL - Izaguirre (WB, Au) DC - Mulgrew (BPD, X) DC - A bit of a problem position, mostly Boyata (LD, C) MC - Brown (BWM, D) MC - Biton (DLP, S) AMR - Zivkovic (IF, A) AML - Commons (IF, S) AMC - Johansson (SS) FC - Griffiths (AF, A) The above is similar to my successful FM15 formation, with wing backs instead of Full Backs, and a Second Striker (SS) instead of an Attack Midfielder. I'd also bought (from memory) Patrik Ekeng as a backup MC or as a DMC when I played 433 (with DM) in the CL. On the second save, I've tried a 4231 Narrow with GK - Gordon (SwKp, D) DR - Lustig (WB, Au) DL - Izaguirre (WB, Au) DC - Mulgrew (BPD, X) DC - Squillaci (LD, C) - He is awful!!! MC - Brown (BWM, D) MC - Biton (DLP, S) AMC® - Christie or Armstrong (AM, S) AMC(l) - Commons (AM, A) AMC - Johansson (SS, A) FC - Jorge Molina (from Real Betis) (CF, S) I've also bought Patrick Ekeng again for the 433 formation.
  13. Thanks - so the cheaper price of Neway/InSIder with the confidence in using Steam as the download client. Excellent!
  14. Hi all, today I pre-ordered FM 2015 via Nexway (using the InSIder code I got). However while I have a confirmation email that my purchase has been recorded, I wonder from where/how I will download FM 2015? In particular, I can't find a download client for Nexway - so I don't know how I will download my game. I suppose I'm unsure because I've used Steam in the past, and I would know to have the Steam client already installed, and I would know that I could view my purchased games through Steam. Can anyone clarify if; - there's a download client I need for Nexway/InSIder/Sega Store? - if not, how will the same be delivered? Thanks!
  15. One thing I've struggled to do in both FM 13 and 14 (the latter in Classic mode) is prevent my goalkeeper taking long goal kicks. It's my preference that he plays it short to a defender or deep lying midfielder, but I cannot seem to set this up. I've tried (in FM 14) giving him shouts; - Pass It Shorter - Distribute to defenders (or Distribute to specific defender) And I've tried team shouts such as "Play out of defence", "Shorter Passing" etc. Has anyone been able to prevent long goal kicks?
