  1. Son is quick but he isn't really fast. He looks fast in comparison to his Spurs colleagues because Spurs are generally a slow side. When chasing back defending Son is often comfortably outpaced by opposition speedsters, even when the opposition players has the ball at their feet. And 15 is fast. In relation to his other stats I believe they reflect his ability level. His CA is high. In real life when Spurs were at their best Son often struggled to get into the starting XI unless others were injured. In the current Spurs side, struggling for form, Son is getting more game time but he
  2. Vorm is travelling with the match day squads but didn't have a preseason. He is also full time training with Spurs. Ndombele was rated by the researcher at his previous club. Where required I'll be making the adjustments in the winter DB release.
  3. I'll investigate this. He missed the first month of the season due to injury.
  4. Hi, I haven't really touched Le Celso but I'll look into this. It's definitely an option to buy and not compulsory. From the Spurs website "We are delighted to announce that we have reached agreement for the season-long loan signing of Giovani Lo Celso from Real Betis Balompié with an option to make the transfer permanent.".
  5. That's a tough one to answer. I first noticed it in the Premier League around the start of the 2010s. I've always felt that Fergie's best ever title was 2012/13 because that Man Utd team was so comparatively poor compared to its predecessors. It was also the year Spurs got (at that moment) their record Premier League points haul and I can safely say we simply were not that good that year. Perhaps that was further cemented the following year when Spurs were downright poor for most of the season and managed to finish 6th. It was also then I noticed the other leagues. Obviously Italy ha
  6. They are. But I just can't bring myself to want any Suarez team to do well! Brazil vs Uruguay would make an excellent semi final too. I'm looking forward to the England vs Colombia game. I think it's going to be a close run thing and I think both teams are evenly matched.
  7. I think the football has been quite entertaining. I also think it is good when a number of larger traditional nations bite the dust earlier, as long as there are still some around for the latter stages. And we still have some potentially tasty games coming up. Brazil vs Belgium will be fascinating as will France vs Uruguay. In the SF a Brazil vs France or Belgium vs France would be pretty tasty. I'm really enjoying it. As for the quality, I've said for years that the general standard of football has been declining. Whether this is down to money, the fact that defenders can't defend
  8. Being a Spurs fan it really pains me to say this. But after years of being over rated, I now think Arsenal are under rated. They are still a very good team who on their day are more than capable of beating anyone. Last season they only finished 3pts behind Man City. I agree that a couple of their players are over rated (in real life and in the game, but every team will have that in both real life and in the game because it's very subjective and opinion driven) but make no mistake they are in the battle for a top four position this year in real life. I think the Spurs best XI is curren
  9. Teammate defined in more detail with the following two options: Club Teammate International Teammate
  10. Reading Poch's book that he just released I am absolutely amazed that the answer to your question is......a fair bit! At least where he is concerned anyway!
  11. I'm cautiously optimistic about this. AI transfers has been a bugbear for me for a long time. If that has truly been improved then that will almost certainly have me upgrade to this version. I hope this intelligence has also been applied to Management and Backroom Staff approaches and appointments.
  12. Unfortunately I don't think it is an easy fix. I've raised the excessive amount of coaches issue a few times over the last three versions and nothing has been done about it. So it's probably integral to the game until a full revamp.
  13. Which is what I intend to do (feedback). Didn't say anything different.
  14. I know that's the stock response but it doesn't work out. There are other areas of the game that desperately require improvement that you can't see from the demo whether they've been fixed. E.g. regens, sensible player transfers, sensible managerial appointments, whether backroom staff listed as favourites follow the manager from one club to another like in real life etc.
  15. I'm really undecided whether to buy FM18 or stick with FM17. I am loathe to stick with FM17 because I keep getting the intermittent bug where the German leagues lose their fixtures but all I have seen in FM18 from these previews is more micro management in areas that I am not really interested in. Like a lot of the other areas currently in the game I can probably just ignore them without any meaningful impact to the experience (OI's definitely springs to mind!) but I don't really want to spend close to £40 to find that out. I don't mind training at the moment but I really hope they fix
