  1. Some of this stuff sounds pretty good so far. The media module has needed an overhaul for a few years so I'm glad they're trying to make it more in depth and closer to life. I'm hoping that the body-language thing is gonna be slightly more than a tone reskin but TBH if the module has been given more nuance anyway I don't think it matters whether I'm fist-bumping someone or passionate. Recruitment stuff passes me by a bit as I seldom play as team looking to sign lots of people but if I do diversify it looks pretty interesting. The end of season stuff is a decent quality of life impro
  2. The fact that CA is not the be all and end all and the better numberz don't guarantee the win is actually one of FMs greatest strengths IMO. Football is unpredictible and this quirk, if you wanna call it that, elevates the game beyond the spreadsheet element. Also it is something that is a deviation from the norm rather than something that always happens so it ain't the biggest issue.
  3. Watched the trailer and all I learned was that feature blogs/vlogs along with the demo are gonna be key and that it is very much October in the General Discussion forums...
  4. Your captain coming to you with a concern and them fully backing you when you explain something logically...
  5. Literally just saw a headline saying Everton avoid relegation after my last matchday... Checked the table... That was a close one...
  6. Clicking too fast so you miss something stupid and then the dynamics blow up because of it. Fat fingering a sub and putting on a player in the complete wrong position. Idiot.
  7. If anyone of you lovely career peeps are interested in this then give it a look...
  8. Hello all, I realised I have FM10 the other day and thought about football 10 years ago. Messi and Ronaldo were just about starting their run of dominance. Pep and Spain were about to introduce us all to Tika Taka brilliance. Liverpool would have to wait another 10 years. Fergie and Wenger were still in charge. Real Madrid hadn't broken Jose. What a time. So for nostalgia's sake as well as for some fun I wondered about doing some kind of challenge. There are three options I am considering based on what people would like to see or might be interested in... 1. All signees c
  9. Playing the same ****ing team three games in a row due to league fixtures, cup draws, replays etc
  10. Signing Darren Bent as my Assistant. I loved that guy at The Valley.
  11. Win a game will ya? Charlton fans have seen this before though. The fanbase are already resigning themselves to the play-offs.
  12. Farq's got his mates to start on me and I told them to **** off and put him in the reserves. He took it well. There is no way I'm allowing these boys to substandard perform and demand loadsa money. They cost me job by doing that in FM18 and if that means I have to Order 67 the lot of them in the first season I will. I will not be messed with.
  13. Last minute winners/equalisers A substitution working out (either they score, they absolutely shore you up or create something special)
  14. September 2019 Update Could we grab ourselves cup glory and/or keep the form? Would we score more than one goal per game? Would we finally come crashing down? We're not boring any more. The league went fine as the 'Home' tactic hit its stride and we dispatched both Deveronvale and Strathspey without too much concern. Inverurie saw us away in the cup as I played the Second XI and they couldn't respond after being 2-1 down at half time. We did rally at the end of the month though when we got rid of a strong Kelty Hearts side in an absolute banging game. It was 3-2 in the 84th minu
  15. Lovely to see you do this @Deisler26. As a kind of former/lapsed/current Charlton fan it's nice to see someone take them on. What happened to Dillon?
  16. August 2019 Update A busy August and a squad that seemed a little brittle. How would we fare? Boring, Boring Wick Academy. FIVE 1-0 wins. Defensively sound Wick Academy? I've never seen anything like it. Anyways, brass tacks. We started well enough against the U18s of Ross County, a nice and sensible win. Forres proved to be the difficult nut to crack I thought they would and a draw would've been a fair result but Roass Allan sneaked in at the last to get us off to a flyer in the league. A second XI took on Banks O'Dee and we were nearly eliminated but Gary Manson saved our blus
  17. It may also have to do with them not wanting to sell to a club in the same league as them... That can sometimes be a thing I think.
  18. So... I made-a-mistake-a when I started this save as I didn't check whether I could offer part-time contracts. It was only when I got to negotiation time that I realised the 'offer amateur contracts only' box was tagged for me so... no point having a save if I can't keep ma youths. I then fell out of love with FM20 and did other things but I can't stay away. I've done some tactical readings and we're back which means we're starting again and no silverware has been won... I bet I don't win any in this save now. Without further ado. Pre-season 2019 Squad
  19. What prodigy my Ass Man is. Been here doing the job since he was 8 years old and played for Ross County when he was 6
  20. Nice to see you back @forameuss. Am itching to see Hamish head to Firhill though. It needs to happen soon as I can't condone all this Rangers goodness although I am enjoying seeing the Eastenders falter... it's a real emotional journey.

  22. I'll probably hold fire and not pre-order/buy first day for the first time in ten or so years until I've tested to see where the ME is. I wasn't happy with the way the football was played in this year's ME and it is that rather than exploits or minor flaws (that can be avoided in earlier versions of MEs) that puts me off. I am happy playing FM18 and unless the ME matches or surpasses it then the 'quality of life' improvements aren't enough to make me slog through a ME that doesn't represent what I want it to.
  23. Staicele: 2018 Pre-Season Update Three weeks to play some games get a handle on the squad and hire some back room peeps. How are we doing? Well... I still can't find any defenders in Latvia but we did manage to win a game. In fairness to us all the teams were better than us except for Tarvastu and we looked okay against league rivals Valmiera. That bodes okay if they're second favourites for the league. We are not favourites... unless you count 3/10 favourites for relegation obviously. It's fine. We'll be fine. It's not a great looking squad though and
