  1. yeah i was manager of Dagenham in 2016 and worked out id need a flat share too be able too live on the money offered.
  2. Press Conferences haven't changed since 2016. its now 2017 can we not do more with the facilities page? just seeing it in writing is not the same as an actual visual representation. I'd like too be able too 'add' people to my favourite people list, we all end up with a player or 2 we have loyalty too etc. Performance of the week award like they do on soccer saturday. invites too pre-game pundatory - not actually commenting on the game but acknowledgement you attended.
  3. So on FM2016 i played the game as real as i could regarding my contract but then discovered that there was an issue iin the game around contracts - fair enough. has this been resolved? i ask because i am currently at Middlesbrough, Top of the league and every season have improved our league position 6th, 5th, 3rd and currently in a battle for the title Arsenal, Chelsea, Man City, Dortmund and Liverpool have all approached me for jobs... Middlesbrough will not agree too any bonus's for winning Premier League or Champions League and will not go higher than 40k per week wages..... SERIOUSLY???
  4. i have felt this exact way. I loved FM12 then the next few i bought i didnt enjoy, they seemed way too awkward too set up tactics, i mean i would set something up that looked great but then it woulnt work and i could not work out why i came on here a few times and ask the usual questions and got the usual answers...are your players tired etc i want too win. i know im going too lose. i get that... The way i moved forward was using the tactics forum on here and specifically using the same guys tactics in 2016 and now 2017. yeah i didnt create the tactics myself, but i sign the players and do the team talks etc i still enjoying bringing youngsters through so im happy with how i play it. if tactics is the only thing your struggling with read some of the posts in the tactics forum and find something you like and use that. It helped me start enjoying the newer versions.
  5. so its my second season with Boro and the tactic. I tried too follow your transfer advice and only sign 2 players, i actually signed a couple. Matty James came on loan in January - i signed him full time in summer so i didnt really count that. i needed too improve my keeper so brought in Fabianski from relegated Swansea. I got alot of my assists from LB so i brought in Joel Ward. I was fairly happy to be honest then got offered Giuseppe Rossi for free My Head of youth brough 2 youngsters in but i dont count them really..... 4 league games in Rossi gets injured for 6 months anyway i threw this kid O'Neill into Europa league games and he just loves it
  6. So the second half of my season was less injury hit but i got less points. Still cannot complain considering Boro came bottom 3 in both your saves Rosler. I noticed i had a +2 GD first half and -2 second half scoring 29 first half and 27 second. Rhodes contribution noticeably tailed off. I signed Dembele from Celtic in January with Crouch as he was cheap and added depth plus got James on loan from Leicester and a young lad from Ipswich called Dozzell as he look like he could turn out decent. maybe signing so many had a negative affect for a time.... in 2 mind weather too continue with Boro or start a fresh game un-employed
  7. i seem too have conceded half of my goals from crosses and although im top half of table i have an awful defensive record, is this bug? tactic? Personnel?
  8. loss too Man Utd a 92nd minute penalty and West Brom scred in 88th after we played an hour with 10 men, so going well...
  9. i was going too post my results so far but my laptop wont play ball when i try and screenshot, then crashed FM after my last win and now i am currently battling too put things right and win the last game i played. not a good afternoon positive note - not lost a game in pre-season or first 3 league games (won all 3)
  10. Hello Mr R Downloaded FM17 about an hour ago and the first thing i had too do was check out what you were doing tactically. i noticed Middlesbrough in the bottom 3 of both saves, so i am tempted too start there. i usually start lower league unemployed but the game just never recognises the achievements i make over time. Hopefully i can keep the Boro up with your tactic.
  11. I spent 10 days at Spurs then jumped too Man United so I was imagining them discussing my career as I also manage England....it was 10 fun minutes in my head while in the shower
  12. so I was just in the shower and was listening too the Sunday supplement when I started off in my own head how they would talk about my current save.... does anybody else day dream in this way? or am I just in too deep?...
