  1. Yes, mate. It's been my tried and tested variant of the 4-3-3 for the last few versions of FM. I'd managed to average 62% possession in the league by December. Sadly, I managed to get sacked. I was doing reasonably well. We were 5th, just 3 points off the top, very congested. Unfortunately I'd started the game with Sunday League Rep and Benassi became a team leader and was asking for 100k p/w for his new contract. I couldn't afford it and it just kicked off, he managed to get 9 players to support him and I "lost the dressing room". Still wanted to play as Viola, so I loaded up a save on the Touch version as I didn't fancy crawling to 6 months and encountering more dynamics related situations. At least in the Touch version I can rule with an iron fist! So far so good, won my first 3 tricky fixtures, away games at Milan and Lazio with Sassuolo at home sandwiched in between. That's a really good start mate to a tough fixture list. How have you managed your wage budget and have you had many players annoy you with their requests for a new contract?
  2. Cheers mate. Good luck with your Viola save too. This is largely my first team and tactics: Mirallas and Pjaca would be interchangable and I just lost Pezella to injury. Vitor Hugo takes his place for now, he's just returned from injury.
  3. There has always been an easy workaround to get the German NT working. Just started a Viola save myself. Everyone wants a new contract from the off! The terms of the license were probably changed. We'll never really know I suppose. Although 3.Liga has been licensed since the winter update. Maybe some sort of trade off with the DFB?
  4. Started a save with Fiorentina with the first window disabled. Wage budget was at its maximum and I had Milenkovic, Veretout and Simeone all ask for new contracts. Couldn't offer them ones but they're all only "influential" players and just formed a clique amongst themselves. My intention was to keep all 3 and luckily I managed to win 6 of my first 7 league games and asked for a new contract with an increase in wage budget. Got an increase of 180k p/w to around 816k p/w. Offered out contracts to the aforementioned three, pretty much gobbling up my new found budget (Milenkovic only 60k, Veretout on 50k and Simeone on 70k). Milenkovic also wanted a release clause, which I managed to negotiate upto 35m. Not too unhappy with this. Don't know how much room in terms of transfer and wage budget I'll have in the summer, so if we secure Champions League football, might be important to sell him to add depth to the squad. Good start to the league, haven't played any of the traditional bigger ones yet although I won at Sassuolo (who had won their first 5 and were top of the table) and Atalanta. Only loss was a late home defeat by Torino. In terms of players, my best performer has been Biraghi. Front three have been solid, very impressed by Mirallas who I had to throw into the first team thanks to an injury to Chiesa. Muriel has barely stayed fit but he's behind Simeone anyway who tops my goalscoring charts with Mirallas and Pjaca with 3 goals. I had hoped to secure Europa League next season but we could be heading for CL football. A little worried as I've gobbled up the wage budget for now and will most likely lose players like Mirallas, Edmilson, Gerson and Pjaca at the end of their loans. Plus, I'm sure Lafont and Chiesa will start pushing for new contracts too. I'm kinda hoping for EL football as that's the logical next step and would allow me to promote some youngsters and allow them to develop with lots of game time. Champions League might just be a step too far although the money and possibly keeping my best players happy might just be worth it.
  5. The national team became unlicensed after the winter update.
  6. I play only the PC version, so I'm unsure how many of the below features are not in the game because of technical limitations in the tablet versions: 1. As mentioned above, detailed stats would be nice. Basic stats like average possession of teams in the league aren't there which kind of strips out the immersion factor. 2. Real life rules for countries like Australia and USA. 3. Squad registration rules akin to the main game. This would add some depth to squad building. 4. Disabling the first transfer window. 5. The Gibraltar league is an add-on for the full game and pretty much comes out at release time. It's disappointing that this is not included in the Touch version. 6. Also, please remove rolling staff contracts. I'm playing in the Spanish 3rd Division and my club is ridiculously in the red and so I don't want to pay compensation to get rid of my staff. Otherwise, the game is still as fun as ever, good job
  7. Just started a save with Milan. Board expectation is to finish "Around top of the league". Don't think I've seen this before. Does this mean a top 4 finish will be enough to fulfill expectations?
  8. https://mobile.twitter.com/FootballManager/status/1101501618212741125 Looks like next week for Touch.
  9. Don't have the game for Switch but Gibraltar isn't available on PC. Which is a bit annoying considering it's pretty much a day one add on released by SI for the full fat game. Hopefully they can add this to FMT going forward.
  10. I think this is a bug. It happened to me on my Inter save. I lost my assistant to Fiorentina and placed an advert. However, my DoF went out and hired Rui Faria (who is pretty damn good in the game), so no real complaints, but I've never had this happen on a previous version. It might be worth raising this in the bugs forum with a save just before your DoF hires the new assistant.
  11. I'm enjoying this version a lot but there does seem to be a problem with the AI being far too defensive when they shouldn't be. For example, I'm playing as Roma, 27 games gone in the season, we're top of the league and traveling to 3rd place Juve who are 5 points behind. You'd imagine they'd treat this as must win considering they were dumped out of the CL the week prior and this is how it played out: They had only 3 efforts on goal, with just one on target and barring Ronaldo, that is a pretty strong team. In the end, it was a comfortable result and a good draw for me but there is no way that Juve should have been happy with a point but they played like they were. This is the first season and Juve have not lost any key players, except for maybe Rugani who was not a starter and I had not made any signings, just sold my backup RB in January. I'm not aware of any exploits in my tactics that might have shut them down completely. I've also attached the PKM for your reference. This was on FM Touch by the way. Please let me know if you need anything else. Juventus v Roma.pkm

  13. I've had one of my scouts increase the number of assignments he can take up although I'm unsure what the trigger for this was. Alternatively, when looking at a chief scout's profile, you can see the size of his scouting team before deciding to hire him.
  14. Has anyone every had any luck in convincing a player to back down from requesting a new contract considering he has sufficient time left? In my Roma save, I have Lorenzo Pellegrini who is on decent pay of 56k p/w till 2022 and asks for a new contract after some decent form. I say he has sufficient time left on his deal but he refuses. This seems to work better on full FM, maybe because of the presence of managerial attributes like "Level of Discipline" and "Man Management"?
  15. If you're playing on PC, it's the same as how you'd set it up for the full game. I'm fairly certain there's no support for 3rd party graphic mods if you're playing on a tablet however.
