  1. Agreed. For anyone who has played more than a couple of seasons or two, the repetitive nature of the press conferences becomes a real drawback of the game....its the reason I went to FM Touch and have enjoyed that sine Christmas. Will try again when the winter update comes out, but I'm not expecting much different. You'd need about 100,000,000 times more scripted Q&A routines to make a feature like this work.
  2. Also playing as NUFC since beta released. Finished first season in 4th. Bought Adam Armstrong from Blackburn for 10M and played a 4-4-2 with him and Wilson both goal machines. Armstrong scored 38 goals and won Premier League top scorer and European golden boot. Wilson only a couple of goals behind. Besides those two, Longstaff bros, St Maximin, Lewis and Fraser worth hanging on to. Rest I am slowly replacing. E.g Tsygankov, Vanheusden, Syzsmanski, Hlozek, Aaron Hickey, Ryan Cassidy have joined in the summer. Oh and Ashley sold up to some Latvian new owner, but no massive cash injection. Very enjoyable save so far.
  3. I wouldn’t say these guys were under rated in FM20 but they should definitely be bumped in CA in FM21: St.Maximin - Newcastle Saka - Arsenal Calvert-Lewin - Everton
  4. thanks. So just tweak BLACK ECHO to start with Control instead of the default Attacking for AWAY games would be your recommendation ?
  5. Quick question for you please Knap..... Using BLACK ECHO 4231 P109 FA CC. The mentality guide suggests switching to cautious as overall mentality for away games. If I did this for BLACK ECHO would it help for away games? Or would the effects be negligible due to all the individual player instructions? I have a control version of the tactic created based on the mentality guide's advice, but I am loathed to use it too much as a starting tactic (i.e. away) as I am playing as Olympiacos and would expect to take the game to most other teams in the league home or away, and be much stronger.
  6. I'm about to start a save with Olympiacos......Can you tell me your starting 11 using the BLACK ECHO 4231 P109 FA CC ? I was wondering who would fit into the SS role ?
  7. As others have said, it's more to do with the ME than the data. Major updates often break tactics I've developed to great effect. And also in my opinion the March version of the game is usually a lot better than the November one. More stable, less bugs, sometimes some new features. I was going to start my main FM20 save when the January transfer patch dropped, until I read there was a second update soon after.
  8. Second this....been hitting F5 on my browser since last Friday. Don't want to start a save only for a new update to land straight after, but I'm getting withdrawal shakes.
  9. Hi. I am not going to get a chance to download the latest update and play the game for a few days to check this myself. Would someone be so kind as to let me know which clubs have their manager positions vacant at the start of the winter update 20.3? I am planning on starting unemployed so was wondering which clubs or nations are looking for a manager from day 1.
  10. I'm having a very frustrating time with this tactic....Newcastle 7th in Prem so that's not bad on paper. Thing is I am amazing at home (beat City, beat Chelsea, put 4 past Man U) but can't buy a result away from home. Just got tonked 5-0 by Norwich at Carrow Road. Currently midway through season 1. Latest patch.
  11. Anderlecht start off with big debts. I picked up all off the above for small transfer fees. Luckily the club continued to restructure their debt as the first season went on, but by then end of Season 1 you can expect to be very much in the red. Get through the first season without going bankrupt (and win the League as I did) and the finances become less of an issue and you get Champions League revenue. I still cant splsh the cash. but to be fair I wanted a challenge where I rebuilt the team with promising Belgian prospects. The two fullbacks, Alexis Saelemaekers and Elias Cobbaut were outstanding for me last season. Sebastiaan Bournouw looks a great prospect at CB too.
  12. Hi Knap....I'm going to switch to this version, but do you foresee any issues with me dragging the WBs into a more conventional back 4 shape? they will still maintain all the personal instructions if I do this right? Suits my fullbacks more being a flatter back 4 shape.
  13. I'm playing as Anderlecht and have signed the following young Belgians who all look to have high potential. Does anyone have any experience of any of these in their game and how they have developed? : Maarten Vandevoort (GK) Genk Yorbe Vertessen (ST) PSV Dante Rigo (MC) PSV Flor Van Den Eynden (DC) Inter Laurens Symons (ST) Lokeren
  14. Tried restarting the game, reloading the skin and various other things, but the game is now broken on Mac. Was fine prior to 19.2.2 Match engine was very smooth. The latest update has made it unplayable on Mac. You have to hope it was tested cross platform before pushing this update out? Any way of rolling back to 19.2.1? Doubt it.
