  1. I think this is about right. Kane is worth more than Pogba.
  2. I can safely that I have yet to lose a match when reduced to 10 men in my current save. In fact I recently won a league cup fixture against Birmingham City who are a league above me in the Championship. With the scores level at 1-1, one of my players is red carded in the 84' minute. And then in the 92' minute I receive a second red card but score immediately after which sends me through. The only changes I made to my tactics was to rearrange my formation to play a 4-4. I don't know. Maybe my current tactics are suited to situations when my team is reduced to 10 or 9 men but I would have expected the opposition to have taken advantage and won in some of those situations. It is still highly unlikely that teams reduced to 10 men will go on to win a game.
  3. This happens a lot. Players played out of position or selected to play when semi-injured.
  4. I think there is a problem with the game failing to recognise the numerical advantage a team has when the opposition has a player sent off. I play with a Commited style of tackling and so have had a fair few red cards. I would say in nearly all cases (maybe all cases), I have gone on to win the match comfortably. In my most recent match, I won the game 4-1 having been reduced to 10 men from the 52nd minute. I play a 4-2-4 formation and when I have a player sent off, I play a 4-2-3 formation (one central AF with the two IF/Winger either side of him). The only changes I sometimes make to my tactics is to select Men Behind Ball but often I don't need to do this. I have never felt being reduced to ten men is a disadvantage.
  5. Fans SHOULD be afraid to show their disappointment! A league 2 team reaches the 4th round of the league cup only to lose to Man City at the Etihad Stadium 4-0. Fans should be beside themselves with joy with an away trip to a Premier League side. My board should be shaking me by the hand for reaching so far in a tournament that we had little hope to win. This is very harsh 🤔
  6. Player subbed due to a match rating of 4. At the final whistle he is awarded a rating of 7.Because of this, I can't discipline the player for poor performance. @Alari Naylor - do you still want save files sent to you?
  7. I think transfer and wage budgets are an issue within FMM. As stated previously, at QPR I was awarded £3.5M for my first season in the Premier League, which I felt was ridiculous. I was then awarded the same amount in my second season. No financial progression despite attaining Premier League status and increase in stadium. Later on in my career, I decided to take on the challenge of taking a Vanarama South team all the way to the top. On promotion to League 2, I was awarded a transfer budget of over £1M. This seem unrealistically generous. I will point out one thing. I have seen instances where the transfer budget is meek but the wage budget is incredibly high. If you adjust your budgets, you can sometimes get a fairer transfer budget without compromising your wage bill too greatly.
  8. Please please please please @Marc Vaughan make this game more challenging. I have taken over a team that were promoted to the Vanarama South League and have got them promoted to League 2 in back-to-back seasons and I'm course for promotion to League 1, beating League 1 and Championship teams in cup competitions along the way. It offers zero incentive to keep on playing when I continually romp home to 4-0 victories. I don't play fancy tactics; 4-2-4, Defensive, Direct, Mixed Passing, Committed Tackling. It shouldn't be this easy. I've actually got to the point where I'm celebrating losing games. This game would be PERFECTION if it offered a realistic challenge. Getting a team promoted from the Vanarama South to League 2 football should be one of the most difficult things to achieve. I have a transfer budget over £1M which I refuse to touch because it would get even easier (I do find it odd that a promoted team to League 2 would have such a rich transfer budget).
  9. Moving my post about game difficulty to a more appropriate thread. (apologies).
  10. Thanks @Jack Joyce. I did indeed have a full squad. As it was to do with one of my own players, I didn't get the visual clues that you usually get. Thanks for taking the time to help.
  11. I'm managing Ghana. I do find the inability to scout Ghanaians (or access the coach report for each player) disappointing and frustrating. As FMM doesn't provide coaching and scouting staff when becoming an international manager, there is no straightforward way of collating scouting and coach reports on players eligible to play for your nation. However the main issue I have is that I am unable to call up a Ghanaian player from my club squad. I'm also currently managing a League 2 club which has a defender of Ghanaian nationality. He doesn't appear in the Player Search screen even if I select Ghanaian from the nationality criteria (all other search criteria has been reset). If I click on his profile, the game assumes I am manager of my club team and therefore does not allow me to call him up. Is there work around for this or am I doing something wrong?
  12. It would concern me if their to do list had a "top 100".
  13. Anyone from SI!! Not looking for dates of when this will happen by. It would just be helpful to know whether you plan to fix a few broken things within the game or whether I should just accept the game as it is and wait for FMM2018 for further improvements.
  14. It's not a rumour. It's a news item which requires me to comment on which will then have an impact on my relationship with the player and board. I downplayed his chances (because he is a 19 y/o Vanarama National League player) and my board criticised me.
  15. I received a news item which relates to one of my players getting a first England cap. He plays in the Vanarama National League!
