  1. Absolutely agree with what's being said. Selling youngsters from the youth squad should never create an issue for any player in the first-team squad. Ever. This is one of the main reasons I've gone back to FM14 (hopefully on a temporary basis). Player interaction on FM14 could get annoying at times, but was manageable and didn't ruin the game.
  2. Not sure if this has been mentioned but any chance of having an option to click/hover for the dropdown menu's much like the i icon does? It's getting annoying when the dropdown menu constantly appears every time I scroll past it.
  3. Squad -> Report-> Comparison-> All Positions
  4. I do have two other tactics, one of which is counter. I'll try using it against the teams near the top of the table. I'll change my BBM(s) to a CM(a) and keep my wide men out wide. Does that sound better? I have Mark Davies back from injury so he can fill the CM(a) role well I think. Thanks for the help I appreciate it.
  5. Thanks for the feedback. I've lost 6 games up to now out of 21. I lost to the current top 3 teams and 3 others who are in and around my position (I'm currently 9th). I've scored 21 goals, 9 of which have come from set pieces. The rest look like they come from my wide men crossing to my striker or other wide man at the far post. Almost all my assists/goals come from my front 3, with 3 assists from my FB(a). When I play Beckford he plays as a DLF(s) and he has 3 assists to my TM's 0 (with 6 goals each). So maybe DLF(s) is the way to go? Or maybe DF(s) for extra pressing? I only use TM because it was Jutkiewicz best role rating, and that I thought it might give my BBM time to join the attack with a TM in the team, especially if I was dropping deeper, and to allow my wide men to go beyond my striker. I'm tempted to either change my BBM(s) to CM(a) or change my BWM(d) to CM(s). If I did the latter I was going to change my IF(s) to W(s) and use DLF(s) for my striker. Not sure how effective this would be? Thanks
  6. I'm after some opinions on how can improve my current tactic. I'm not conceding too many goals but I am struggling slighty to score them myself and I think this is what is stopping m from getting into the play-offs. I do get chances (with a couple of CCC's). Should I just ride it out and hope my players start finishing their chances or can you guys see where I might be going wrong tactically? I try to give my players their role based on what their best role rating is. i.e. Tim Ream is better at BPD. Is it ok to do this or could it be conflicting with my formation/TI's, etc? Should I ask Moritz to roam from position since he is terrible at marking, tackling, teamwork & workrate? My thinking is he'll be useless in defence anyway so might as well leave him to find gaps, etc. and potentially allow my FB(s) access to the wing. I'm tempted to fiddle with my two centre midfield roles & duties but don't want them to stunt other players or get in their way. I don't like having a BWM(d) as I feel he comes out of position too much and I already use hassle opponents as a TI anyway. And with my FB(a) gunning forward I was thinking it might be helpful to keep the BWM on (d) but change his role. Any thoughts on this? I'm a little perplexed about changing my centre mids to more attacking as it may compact the areas my wide men and TM might use. If I did then I would want my wide men to stay wide and use them as wingers but would this not stunt my FB(a) from overlapping well? Other info: I sometimes use one more TI. I do tend to change my D-line depending on the type of striker/s the opponents are using. Any help or two-cents is appreciated.
  7. I'd take the Telford job if possible. If that's the type of club interested in you now I can't see better clubs offering you jobs, at least not for a few years. IMO journeyman saves are better started on the bottom rungs of the big league countries, especially if your after quicker progression.
  8. I started as Chimney Corner. Was with them for 6 seasons in total, got to the top division, won the cup twice and was in Europe twice. Rumours started circulating that Stockport were interested in me who were in the Conference at that time. I said I was interested which the board did not take kindly to and sacked me. I thought I'd try for a couple of league 2 jobs but was unsuccessful. (This was on FM13 I think). That might give you an idea of whereabouts you are in terms of reputation and potential clubs to jump to.
  9. I had this the other day - didn't know why my staff hadn't left the club after a few days even though I mutually terminated their contracts. I did the same as you - terminated their contracts. Again, the same as you I had saved after mutually terminating their contracts but I hadn't advanced a day. Musn't have been sorted properly because I'm fully updated. I also re-offered contracts to the new staff I had already offered contracts to just in case it wasn't going to put them through either.
  10. Can't remember if this had some slang in it. http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php/289325-%E2%80%A2%E2%80%A2%E2%80%A2-FM-Commentary-Pack-%E2%80%A2%E2%80%A2%E2%80%A2?highlight=commentary
  11. Would be interested to know whether German leagues have been expanded to include more than the current top 3 divisions.
  12. Yea I use it constantly. FM is just a tool for my time on Genie Scout.
  13. I've just checked and the one cap was a friendly match so it must be that then.
  14. There's a Brazilian newgen on my game who has Italy as a second nationality. He eventually got one cap for Italy at 27yrs old, but a year later and he's now in the Brazil squad. Is this even possible? Or is there some rule I don't know about?
