  1. Thanks for your advice, guess I'll start to train that PPM on all my best FK takers
  2. [FM18] The World Is Not Enough

    Not much time left before the transfer window closes, so I guess no more players in or out, despite receiving some offers, none was relevant enough to concede and sell players
  3. [FM18] The World Is Not Enough

    August 26, the first 4 league games are gone, Paços Ferreira (h) 4-0, Estoril (a) 0-0, Feirense (h) 2-0, and Boavista (a) 1-0 were the opponents, so 10 points now, and sitting at the top of the table
  4. [FM18] The World Is Not Enough

    As for the tactics, my first choice is always 4231 with wingers, I've got some work to do with Danilo Pereira, who is a valuable midfield asset, but currently needs some adaptation to play at full potential
  5. [FM18] The World Is Not Enough

    The pre season is over, after 7 friendly matches the squad is ready for the challenge. On news from the player camp, Oliver Torres has being trained as a MOE, so far so good, next he'll learn MOD
  6. [FM18] The World Is Not Enough

    I need another CB, but since money is short, Axel Tuanzebe has been brought over from Man Utd as a loanee until the end of the season, never heard of him but he was well recommended by my scouts
  7. [FM18] The World Is Not Enough

    Fabiano is on surplus, so I made a deal with Santos FC, 1m for the transfer, it will be made efective on january 10 2018
  8. [FM18] The World Is Not Enough

    Making myself at home, knowing the club's reality. The Chairman has handed me the financial report, around 250k available for transfers, and 3.2m used on a 3.4m wage budget. So I can't really go on the market and buy some new players
  9. My goal in this new save game, is to coach the best teams of the world, starting my first job with my all time favorite team, FC Porto, and despite the 4 previous seasons without a single title, the pundits say I'll be top of the league. Here we go, wish me luck
  10. That's my opinion at least, but my point is, it's very rare to see a DFK going in, or at least framed between the posts when you're watching the game
  11. Good news folks, finally after 387 matches later I finally saw live a direct free kick goal. And yes, you guessed it, against my team. And it wasn't scored by a player with decent attributes for free kicks and technique. 14 in FK and 14 in technique. My "specialists" on my own squad have 18 in FK and 17 in technique, and the other one 17 in FK and 19 in technique haven't got one yet. Thanks for your opinion herne79, but so far it seems that Free Kicks in FM2018 are all about randomness. BTW, the player that scored that goal against my team has scored his first goal for the last 73 matches
  12. [Portugal] (Official) League Specific Issues

    Exactly my point, in the first season Abou is not in his full potential, this is from first season, he hasn't scored in Champions League, and still no games in domestic cups, but 10 goals in 7 league matches, he is not weak
  13. [Portugal] (Official) League Specific Issues

    First of all, I'm a Porto fan, and found your statements hilarious and clearly biased. Emotionally, and in every argument that I have with friends, yes, Porto is the best team. Not only in Portugal, but in the world. That's the reason I'm a fan. But come on, 0 titles in 4 years is not the stuff of a dominating team. My job as a FM player is to bring back the glory days back to Estádio do Dragão, not to reminisce past glories like a whining baby. As for Aboubakar and Marega, they are well represented in the game. If you can't extract the best from them, and instead complain on a forum, what kind of a manager are you? Also, the budget at the start of game is very real, just remember that our squad this season is mostly made of loanees being reinstated in the squad. Like people often say, Porto right now has no money to rent a blind singer. That my friend, I call it a challenge. Offload the squad, way too many players. As for your other complaints, like the kits, the logos, the real names, maybe you never heard of licensing, google for it. There's a workaround for that. Don't be lazy
  14. [Portugal] (Official) League Specific Issues

    I'm managing FC Porto, 3 seasons into the game, and in every single one of them, I've been put into the same group with SL Benfica in the League Cup. And I don't find it realistic, not even by stretch. BTW, I lost in the final in the first season, won the final in second season, and now in the third I'm about to start the group stage, being SL Benfica my first opponent
  15. 1 or 2 per season? I have no idea what football do you watch, but that is not accurate, Up that number to 4 or 5 per season, some beasts like Messi hit the mark 10 times per season PS- never forget Rogério Ceni, the former goalkeeper who managed to net 68 goals from direct free kicks in his carrer in this FM that would not be possible
