  1. Cheers gents, my coach report said he;s got decent versatility so I'm hoping it works out well.
  2. Does anyone have much/any experience of completely retraining a player from one position to another? I've just signed Falkirk LB Luke Leahy for my Peterborough side in League 1. Some of his defensive stats are below... Marking - 7, Tackling - 10, Anticiaption, Concentration and Positioning ALL 8. Whereas some of his attacking attributes are below here... Dribbling - 12, Finishing - 14, First touch - 11, Composure and Off the Ball - 13. Clearly his attributes are more suited towards a forward player rather than a defensive one and as such I'm completely transforming him to an attacker. Am I likely to be successful with this attempt or not? So far he's got 3 in 6(1 one of which he was left back) already so I'm quietly confident if he becomes natural or accomplished I'm onto a winner.
  3. First off either Peterborough or Man Utd, then once the editor forum starts to fill up and a lower league file is available, I'll hop to Havant and Waterlooville who now reside in the Isthmian league. After that who knows.
  4. TBH Sheffield United(89), Stoke(85) and Wimbledon(84) would in most seasons be right up in the automatic places and are also quite unfortunate that four teams were just streets ahead of both them and the rest of the league. In my current save(just finished first season) they would make up the top three of the Championship.
  5. Has anyone got any tips on keeping the stronger players in the squad at the club? I'm just about to finish the first season (playing Champions League Semis 2nd leg as I speak) and have won the League and Super Cup (Lost Dutch Cup on penalties in final) with a squad that is a lot stronger than anyone else in the league. Like many, I went to South America for a lot of my players, 3 key men being Alvarez Balanta, Lucas Romero and Lucas Silva, amongst others found scattered around Europe. Anyway, EAB is complaining about wanting to leave, I tried to convince him to stay but he had none of so I am looking likely to have to sell him, most offers being negotiated to at least £25m with add-ons. Unfortunately, I don't think he'll be the last to complain about wanting to move on and numerous players could be candidates.
  6. I haven't seen a sentence sum up FM so well for such a long time.
  7. 18, playing since FM05, which thinking back is earlier than I remembered and means I've been playing FM over half of my life now.
  8. I've had a brother for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain crop up as a regen in my game.
  9. 21 now I think
  10. As far as I'm aware, AI clubs don't offer youth intake trials. To get them cheap, offer contracts on the day of the intake.
  11. I think it's only in the classic game. There's probably some skins that had the feature built in for the full game however. EDIT- What Neil said
  12. In previous FM's if you minimised FM whilst in a match, the game would keep playing regardless. Has this changed for this year and if so, is there a way to work around it?
  13. If I have a break for internationals, I normally have a friendly on either the Thursday, Friday or Saturday when I have a break. Helps keep players fit and if I'm in a low enough league, can bring in some extra money that could be quite helpful.
  14. What everyone else has said. Also, a player isn't always going to reach his PA. A player could have a PA of 193, but may only make it to 140 because of his mentality, injuries etc.
  15. Overload, very fluid 2 cbs, 2 wing backs, a cm or 2, attacking wingers and forwards make up the rest. Effectively, just get everyone and the ball in the other half of the pitch.
