  1. I try to play most of my games but sometimes I'd rather get through a season quickly so will only play the "big" games. I did a save with TNS once though and it got to point where I would sim every domestic game because it got boring watching my team win 5-0 every week.
  2. Why isn't it realistic? It's the games way of telling you that they're not for sell but if you want to spend a stupid fee on him, have a go. Why should AI clubs be bullied into selling their best talents, when the player hasn't requested to leave?
  3. You can get different types of Brexit which change the rules accordingly.
  4. Looking for a bit of help. I'm looking at switching from a Laptop to a PC but, having been a laptop person my whole life, don't really know what to look for price-wise in a PC. I know that buying everything separately is cheaper but I wouldn't even know where to start with building a PC if i'm being honest. Although if it's a lot cheaper I will find a Youtube tutorial. My budget is around £700 -£800 (this is just for the rig). I have found this: https://www.box.co.uk/OMEN-by-HP-Obelisk-875-0005na-5MM75EA-_2456130.html Is that a good price? Can I get something better for a similar price? Could I get all those parts separately for a lot cheaper? If so, where from? Thanks in advance.
  5. The leaderboards have been a mess for years and also I think they're based on a single season not your whole save. Also most of these above would be totally irrelevant to any leaderboard score. How is the game supposed to know whethere you're using a downloaded tactic? Why would database size affect your score?
  6. If you do that for games you lose then just save before youth intake day and then keep reloading until you get a good one. If you're going to cheat by save-scumming anyway you might aswell go all the way.
  7. You don't think clubs have scouts in South America irl? It's not cheating at all. I don't really understand how you can think using the scouting system is cheating. You do realise that big clubs have extensive scouting systems irl right?
  8. Hate to break it to you but, this isn't an exploit. You've scouted 100's of players from a region, known for good young players, and signed 2 of them.
  9. Nice to see that all my players still would rather shoot from an impossible again rather than square it 100% of the time. This has been in the match engine for years now. Would have thought SI would have fixed this by now......
  10. Incorrect. IRL, a third party will determine the value of the player(s) involved in the deal.
  11. This is my 3rd time starting as Reading . I just can't get into a save at all this year. Not really moved along much further since that opening post for this save. I sold Norwood though as I plan on playing Kuhl in midfield. Barrett looks like he's going to become an absolute star though. The only problem I have is that I don't play with an AM (haven't been able to get one to work this FM). I am currently retraining him as a CM (AP) but I don't want to limit him too much.
  12. Started a new Reading save last night with Whizzkid's transfer update (no Tshibola do have Norwood though..?). I didn't get very far because I started it at like 10pm and needed to go to bed so I just did all the general set up. Just read through the thread and I might do something similar to GylfiAsCharged and get some of the youngsters developed at a cost of promotion for a couple of years. I don't think I'll be as strict as only youth players though because I get impatient but I want the core to be the youth since there are a number of players in the youth team that can turn into capable players. I will try to post any progress.
  13. What do you need to know about the game? Not going to lie, I wouldn't care if it had no massive new features and they just improved the stuff that currently needs improving. In fact i'd spend £50 on it if they just got rid of sh*t press conferences.
  14. I voted for Gary Neville because, despite his stint at Valencia, I think he will be become the best manager out of the mentioned. It's hardly an inspiring list though. It would never happen but I would absolutely love Slaven Bilic. He talks so much sense and is the right amount of crazy. I think I love him.
  15. Ahh yes! I just re-read the email. I will stop worrying for a bit then.
  16. Has anyone that sold their tickets through the re-sale actually had the money go onto their credit card yet? I've had 2 confirmation emails now but still haven't actually got the money
  17. Is there any information on the re-sale window yet? Only thing I can see is March. My friends didn't get any tickets and are now not bothered about even going to France .
  18. I agree with Bliss in the fact that a narrow 4-1-2-1-2 formation could be better for us. I think Shaw being fit will be vital to a formation like this though. I can't see Baines having the energy to bomb up and down the left flank for 90 minutes. It would solve our problem of lack of quality wingers though.
  19. Season has started pretty well, and I currently sit 14th after 10 games after just playing Man City and Arsenal. Adam Clayton has been brilliant for me. Here he is:
  20. Started a new save recently after finally managing to get to grips with the game. Got promoted last night after finishing 2nd. It was a three-way battle for the top of league all season between us, QPR and Hull. PR ended up winning the league by 5 points. Hull fell short about 10 points ahead of 4th and then got knocked out of the play-offs by Leeds . Transfer activity was kept to a minimum because I know finances are tight at the moment. My only signings were Sam Morsy as competition for Danny Williams and Adam Clayton. I also signed Leandro Rodriguez on loan from Everton in January. I sold Simon Cox, Hal Robson-Kanu and Orlando Sa during the course of the season. I cancelled Alex Fernandez's loan in January when Aaron Kuhl came back from his loan spell. I was given a £20m budget on promotion and made Ola John's loan permanent for the arranged fee. I also signed Michael Hector after he went back to Chelsea for £3m. My two biggest signings have been Andrea Poli and Joel Campbell. That has pretty much eaten up most of my budget and I'm still short in a few areas. I think the premier league is definitely going to be a struggle with such a small squad but hopefully I can get a few loans in.
  21. If he even wins 1 trophy in Spain it would be a success. There's so much of gap between Real & Barca and then Atletico and then the rest it's unreal. If he's there for 3/4 years and consistently get's into the Europa League and wins one domestic trophy it would a massive success in my opinion.
