  1. So you resort to insulting the guys intelligence because you disagree with his viewpoint? i suggest that you take a good long look in the mirror. Also DD I do agree that you have been critical of a few things this year which is good to see as it means you are not completely one of the 'Si can do no wrong' crowd. You do however have a history of defending the game the moment someone says anything bad about it. just how long do you spend on these boards compared to playing the game anyway?
  2. I played half a season with the beta, was lying 3rd in the league and playing well but just didn't have any fun with it. This is by far the worst and most unintuitive FM yet. 18 matches in and I got to the point of just being bored to death by it so I uninstalled, refunded and am now having fun with my FM2016 save in my 38th season and will spend the money on an actual game that is fun to play. I didn't buy FM 2017 and I'm not buying this one. It's sad really, like watching an old friend die a slow and lingering death. Unless something radical changes in next years offering then FM is no
  3. Worst FM or CM there has ever been IMO, which is sad because the dynamics are a good idea but the whole thing looks like it was thrown together in an afternoon as a proof of concept before any actual work starts on it.
  4. It isn't a falsehood. Time and time again the Ai can buy players for much less than the player & pay him less in wages. it has been like this for years now and the old excuses that Si throw around like 'the player may not like your team, the player may not want to move ( no problem moving to an Ai team for less money though ) just don't hold water. I mean, I get it. The must be something in there to balance human out of the box logic that can exploit a linear thinking Ai but this measure is way too transparent.
  5. FM has been like this for years. It's an Ai cheat to prevent the player from exploiting the system although Si will never admit that. I see it as treating a mild headache with a shot of morphine administered by a sledgehammer.
  6. This is why FM has lost it's fun factor. I want to play a football manager game without spending three quarters of my time massaging every players ego, because their isn't an actual man among them, just over entitled babies with over inflated opinions of themselves. In real life there are a few players like this but they are the exception rather than the rule, which is why we tend to be able to name them. The majority of players get on with the job but Si take it to the extremes and give all of them the Diego Costa gene without also giving them his talent. I can understand that if one of t
  7. Yes. Wigan Athletic got hammered by Spurs who put 9 past them. The entire team was fined a weeks wages and the money went to reimburse the fans that had bought tickets.
  8. There are many young players like this around the world but let me put it this way. Assume that you are managing a team in the Vanarama North and by a quirk of fate a 16 year old kid comes to your club. He is one of those players that has the potential to truly be something special if he gets the right coaching. He plays in the same position as Fred the local butcher who gives you a great deal on pork sausages every week and is maybe a few pounds overweight. The kid can run rings around him. Sure he has some rough edges and he doesn't have the experience to pick out the right ball on occ
  9. Rooney, Ronaldo, Rashford etc. Do you want anymore?
  10. It's called experience over many years of playing CM & FM. Couple that with the fact that Si wait until the pre-order bonus is coming to an end before drip feeding us the new details. Then add on the fact that they raised the price so that the pre-order bonus looked like a good deal in the first place and it doesn't take much imagination to react in a negative manner to what amounts to more of the same with legitimate user feedback ignored again. I didn't buy the game last year ( first time since Eidos published CM ) and to be honest it doesn't look like I will be buying it this year ei
  11. Luis Suarez was a very influential player but not many of his team mates supported his eating habits on the pitch. I just hope that Si get this aspect right this time around.
  12. Perira ( man utd 2nd string keeper ) 3 appearences Johnstone ( man utd 3rd string keeper ) 0 appearences & will probably play in one or two cup games this season if he is lucky http://www.manutd.com/en/Players-And-Staff/First-Team.aspx Both are considered members of the first team squad. Honestly Cougar if you stopped waving the Si flag everytime someone says anything negative about the game and instead looked at the issue without the rose tinted glasses the problems would become self evident. You do not see jhonstone whining about the lack of 1st team chances and you cer
  13. Number 4 mate. Nothing wrong with my understanding of the term. If he aint needed for the entire season then he doesn't get to play. BACKUP noun 1. a person or thing that supports or reinforces another. 2. a musician or singer or group of musicians or singers accompanying asoloist: a singer with a three-man backup that plays cello, bass, and guitar. 3. an overflow or accumulation due to stoppage, malfunctioning, etc.: a sewage backup; a backup of cars at the tollbooth. 4. a perso
