  1. You do (or did) get that message in the mobile version.
  2. Has the conditioning been tweaked further so that it has even less of an impact than it did previously?
  3. Yes I see this happen often. It was an issue in previous FM games too.
  4. I just had a transfer accepted from West Brom for Kane Wilson. The offer was £5M + a player. However, I was never given the opportunity to enter contract negotiations as a contract was already agreed. The only action I had left on this deal is to confirm the transfer. Transfer without contract negotiations.zip Unfortunately I don't have a save before the transfer was made. Only before I have the opportunity to confirm the deal. Btw, I do think this would be a cool feature whereby the Chairman (or DoF) insists on handling contract negotiations therefore restricting your involvement in handling the clubs finances.
  5. Yes this is true. I even wondered whether the various mentality options were labelled incorrectly because I seem to play a more counter strategy when I select Control or even a Contain mentality. I'm also amazed how much possession I have when playing Counter.
  6. You're wrong to say "a minority". A lot of people play for realism.
  7. I'm negotiating a contract with Crystal Palace player, Frankie John. He sets out his demands and I agree to them. However, when I hit the suggest terms button, his mood bar moves towards 0% and he responds in a way that suggests I haven't offered anywhere near what he asked for. If I then attempt to offer more than what he requested, the mood bar moves closer to 0%. In the end, Frankie John gives up on the negotiations even though I offered what was requested and then some. frankie john transfer.zip
  8. Tweaks have been made to various areas of the game which have combined to make things a bit more challenging. I still think FMM is easy but in my current save, it took me until my third season to start dominating the MLS with LA Galaxy (who are not the dominant team they used to be). I then quit my job and took over at Wigan who were one place above relegation with four games left to play. I managed to survive relegation (just) and then spent my first full season struggling to get into the top half of the table (I confidently told the board I would achieve a playoff place but ended up in 17th place). I am now in my second full season with Wigan and look likely to achieve at least a playoff place. I had a save with Lazio where I dominated Serie A and Europe so I believe the game is still too easy when you're in charge of a club with good financial resources. However, FMM does seem to present more of a challenge when managing clubs in the lower divisions. The problem I had with LA Galaxy (and I suspect with Wigan) is that when you eventually build a winning team, the AI doesn't seem to be able to catch up with you.
  9. It would be good to be able to bring your backroom team with you when starting a new job. That's not to say it would be a guarantee they would decide to join you. I just resigned from my job at LA Galaxy and applied for the vacant Wigan position who are one place above relegation in the Championship. I could quite understand it if my backroom team at Galaxy didn't fancy swapping the California sunshine for the north of England!
  10. This is the game save after the news item appeared. After 782M.zip
  11. This is the game save before the news item came up. Before 782M.zip
  12. This can't be right can it? When he's only valued at £6.25M.
  13. I do. Check this one out.inexperienced manager board response.zip
  14. I suspect this isn't a bug but despite being in only my fourth season, I think the Board were wrong to dismiss me based on my inexperience when I have a National ranking and have won 2 league titles and 1 cup.
  15. This is an old bug that seems to be reappearing. I tried to sign Emerson Hyndman. I approached Bournemouth with an enquiry and they wanted something like £3.5M. As soon as I made the bid, a Chinese club came in and rivalled my bid, and every time I increased my bid, the Chinese club would out bid me. Interestingly, this club didn't appear on the rival offer screen when making my first bid. Eventually I withdrew my offer and in doing so Bournemouth stated that no one had reached their valuation of £9.75M. I tired once more to sign him but the same thing happened again. The Chinese club could easily have afforded him but they seemed to pull out of a deal whenever I did. Later on Southampton and Brighton make bids to sign him. With Southampton buying him for a lot less than what they wanted from me. This just doesn't seem right to me.
