  1. No generational leap for me, thank you very much. That is a big no-no. They should on the other end, make the game even lighter, so we can play with even more leagues and a larger player DB
  2. SI, just some food for thought I'd like to see some improvements in FM, such as: - less whining players about first team football, some of them are just fringe or backup and still they cry for game time - less demands for new contract (some players demand wage improvements twice or more per season, right after a contract renewal) - unrealistic first team demands from youngsters - idiotic demands from 2nd and 3rd GK, you can't possibly have just 2 gk in first squad and it's very upsetting to keep them happy - the over inflated prices when the human manager tries to buy players, I often try to groom my own players from the youth ranks. - and please, tone down a little bit the often ridiculously low offers from other teams on my players. Quite often they approach me with offers of 15M for a player valued at 35M+ with indispensable status, happy, satisfied with his game time. For last and not least, is this time that we can add or remove leagues with just view only on an ongoing game?
  3. The game just got updated, and guess what? I've seen goals being scored from dfk
  4. Of course I want realism, so I can face it with realistic tactics. You missed my point
  5. Hello fellow FM addicts Finally after 30+ seasons played in this latest FM instalment my final assessment is as follows: - This is the FM where you can get past your toughest tests and opponents with the most idiotic and unrealistic tactics, for example, that minnow team in your league that always manages to give you an upset, just face them with a super defensive formation and you've done it. No more upsets. And what about that Man Utd impossible match right up ahead? No problem. Just play without strikers, offside trap with your defence all the way up, just passing the ball through into space and pronto, no mountain high enough to climb - The SS are from a UCL group stage match, my FC Porto side against MU at Old Trafford, my strikerless tactic absolutely devastated the red devils (despite the fact they ended up with one player sent off and an injury after using all of the subs) - It was by far the most disappointing FM to date, I'm going back to FM 2016 or FM 2017, hoping to get back to this one if by any chance you guys at SI decide to improve it especially at the Match Engine level. Absolute disgrace. What ever happened to direct free kicks? The only cool thing is that as much as my team doesn't benefit from free kicks, I go by several seasons in a row without conceding goals from that stance, but so much for realism - I believe that you tried to make game harder and more difficult, but created a lot of exploits that you can access simply by creating unrealistic and idiotic tactics - Sorry for my bad english
  6. Thanks for your advice, guess I'll start to train that PPM on all my best FK takers

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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
  14. 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
  15. 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
