  1. Hi Went to play FM18 this morning, steam gets to 68% and won't download any further, tried all tips on here, restarting, clearing cache, verifying, but nothing, it gets to 68% and then just simply stops downloading Anything I can do - never had a single problem with it before THanks
  2. Just lost 1-0 to cardiff. more possession, 10 shots, 1 on target they had 8/6. this game is obviously skewed agaisnt me lol actually played them off the park. super keeper. its boring. i dont mind losing whe i play badly, which is often enough, but losing the off game i play well is ridiculous. oh and for reference cardiff are, were, below me in the league
  3. currently in a 0-0 with brighton, 75 mins and my forwards havent even touched the ball... HAHAHAHA Brighton score in 88th minute. lol. this game sucks
  4. tackling too, players just dance around my players while they aimlessly follow them. soon as i get the ball, boom successful tackles. either the match engine is sh*te which i doubt, or the game is simpl impossible, or im missing something?
  5. also, dont think ive strung more than two passes together ever. my team lose the ball so easily, yet can never win it back...
  6. I've tried 451 and ive tried 442. Im playing dull boring football. 6.2 is te highest rating my players get. I try to play through the middle, i try to play on the flanks, i try attack i try to defend. I either grin out 1-0 losses which are boring or play brilliantly and...lose due to super keeper syndrome Ive got delpiero and derbyshire up top. When i play 451 its one o those two up top with ward/maguire/ledesma on the wings. My midfield is *****, my defence is not too bad but im losing by single goals, and my forwards, well, they may as well not be on the pitch. In my first save i was losing
  7. nope, literally impossible. Since you guys advice ive started again TWICE. Tried the roles suggested and some i read about. First 4 games i hada total of 6 shots, but i won 1-0 and drew 1-1. Since then, nothing, im having 12-16 shots a game but oppositions either get penalties or have supe keeper. 6 one v ones and not one scored? come on! now the board are angry again and wanting my head. Regardless of who plays there or what roles i give my LB and RB never get more than 5.5, but when i talk to them they get angry. I've tried different tactics, roles, formations, personell, and i simpl canno
  8. Quick question SpillBlood - re staff, did you replace or add any coaches/scouts/physios in your save. I tend to do this but if it doesnt make much difference I won't bother! If you did, any you recommend?
  9. Yeh sometimes i get complacent. I suppose you have to realise every piece of information you were provided is relevant and you can use to your advantage. I guess every little tweak DOES matter. It's just understanding what works and what doesnt! Yeh I'm working my way through it now! Aprreciate the help
  10. This is the thing, on FM all players are rated Championship quality - when played right we should be doing ok. Interesting points. I tend to stick to formation in all games - maybe will take a bit of work on my part and change formations etc and certainly to look at player roles going forwards I always watch extended
  11. Wow, that's incredible. Clearly it ISNT impossible. Perhaps I'm just the worlds worst manager!! Time to start again perhaps!
  12. This is incredible SpillBlood! I am currently on my 3rd save. Being sacked just after xmas on both my others. I can't seem to get any of my players to perform at all. My incomings were Del Piero (amazing) Jamar Loza on loan and Leon Best. The defence were so poor it beggars belief and for 4/5 star midfield they went walkabout. I simply could not get anything out of my players. To see you achieving promotion with very few ins/outs is quite incredible and inspiring. I was clearly way off the mark I generally played 442 Camp LB Mattok (poor) CB Thorpe CB Wood RB Buxton (poor) ML D Ward/
  13. Wow. This is scary, thats EXACTLY what happens. Defence plays long balls, midfield tend to be non existant, SO much space in the middle. It's weird that you've nailed it so well! Thank you, I will try your role suggestions. Whats worrying is that I didn't see it! I'll also do the reading so thanks again. Clearly my system is flawed, though I simply could not see it. I'll do some reading and try again a bit fresher tonight. Appreciate that guys, thanks
  14. So. I'm Rotherham United. I understand it's a tricky task to keep us up but on FM16 its impossible. Let me explain First game I got sacked after 15 games (board called a meeting after Newcastle beat me in the cup, said i should win the next game, came down from 4-0 behind to draw 4-4 n got sacked. 15 games - i was 4 points clear of relegation! Anyway the squad are all 'good championship players' but there was some disharmony due to bad handling of some player meeting (player is awful, gets dropped, moans, squad on his side?!?!) So i start again and make myself INternational level all the c
