  1. Here's a save from the full release pre-meeting. The save is from the 16th; meeting is on the 22nd. Sam Allen - Newcastle (v02).fm I'm not sure if it's do to with how the data is set in the DB or something else. I would suggest from the lack of ambition shown and from the lack of change in plan that Ashley is actually still setting the objectives despite not being at the club; so it's more than just a cosmetic bug.
  2. Hi @Russell Hammant I logged this in beta here. Couple of save games uploaded on the attached post. It's still present in the full release; was just coming to report it again when I saw this thread:
  3. There is not currently a more appropriate section of the forum than this as far as I can tell. If I wanted to discuss FM tactics with other forum users I'd go to the tactics discussion forum, but that's not what I'm doing.
  4. I logged this towards the end of the beta but it didn't get picked up on which is understandable. It's not a bug, but I feel it's something that's missing from the game currently. As it says in the title. Playing 3 at the back has become more common over the past few years; particularly in England. If you watch certain teams playing a 3-4-3 or 3-5-2 or similar formation with 3 centre backs IRL, the two wide centre backs will often move forward and get involved in attacking play. Usually one will go forward and support the attacking play down their flank whilst the other stays back to
  5. Some positive feedback: Partly down to the amount of people posting about them in here, I signed both Lamptey and Grealish to see how they perform in the ME. They both perform very well with realistic G/A contributions and match ratings. Both consistently delivered around 7.20 avg rating over the course of a season as part of a successful team. Lamptey especially performs realistically- despite his limited technical/mental attributes, his physicality makes him effective at both ends of the pitch.
  6. As it says in the title. Playing 3 at the back has become more common over the past few years; particularly in England.

Usually one will go forward and support the attacking play down their flank whilst the other stays back to defend against counters. At the moment, it's impossible to implement this in FM. Real life examples of this would include: Sheffield United - there is a really good video s
  7. It seems Newcastle will never truly be rid of Mike Ashley... We were taken over in my save a couple of years ago and Mike Ashley left the club, but he's still appearing for the club vision meetings at the end of the season. It's unclear whether he's having any influence on the objectives or not. This happened in FM2020 too so would be good to get it fixed. It MIGHT be because of a data issue instead, but I'm not sure. Save games before & after meeting. last save overwrite backup.fm Sam Allen - Newcastle2.fm
  8. Eduardo Camavinga - you will have seen more of him than I have, but should his attacking attributes be a little better? Particularly dribbling and flair? From what I have seen he's very good at breaking forward with the ball but this is not reflected at the moment. Maybe dribbling and flair could both go up to 14? Drop positioning and marking slightly to make way. He barely dribbles in the game, but he has completed the most dribbles for Rennes this season IRL.
  9. That's odd! I can't think of anything that could've happened uniquely on my save to make the excessive bids happen... On the provided save game did you get taken over by Chris Dunphy? IIRC there were multiple consortiums in contention. Sorry - I meant the takeover itself with regards to it being random whether the takeover actually went through or not.
  10. @Ben KenneyI've stuck it on wetransfer as I'm having no luck uploading to the server - https://we.tl/t-D93kMpvrGA Note it's 10 days prior to the take over... that's the closest I had. Also might be hard to replicate the take over as it's random as to when/if it happens isn't it?
  11. Hey @Ben Kenney I've tried to upload a save file three times and it's failed each time. Is there a restriction on how much we can upload or something?
  12. See above post^. Save game below. I have just been taken over and, after informing me there would be no further investment, the new board have decided to launch two ridiculous bids for Declan Rice and Dwight McNeil for a combined fee of £225m . Sam Allen - Newcastle TAKEOVER.fm
  13. 100x this. I don't understand how Man Utd continue to be rated as one of England's top clubs - they haven't been for many years. It's worthless going into specifics, but they need to be downgraded across the board as they are way too effective in the game.
