  1. Why do you need a new RB with Bree being there?
  2. Really Interesting that, I can't get either of them to score, however both are playing a bit part role up top, Bolasie has tucked away double figures from the left, and El Ghazi has 8 from the right i think with Abraham on 19 up top (and its only January). The other strikers Hogan has 0, Kodja has 1 and Davis has 1 (though he has only made 2 appearences, i wanted him out on loan but he wouldnt go). Grealish hasn't got many through the centre, in fact O'hare has scored more in that position from fewer games
  3. interesting you are building around Hogan up top, I find Abraham such a big improvement to him, is there a reason you prefer Hogan?
  4. The squad the game starts with should be good for a mid table premiership finish, may need a replacement striker for Abraham if you didn't get him on permanent transfer and Davis didn't get enough game time to develop. Green coming back off loan gives you your replacement winger. If you were going to target one position get a top drawer centre back, as Tuanzebe isn't really worth signing again.
  5. I'm playing as Villa and haven't lost a game by January (including premier league teams in Carrabo cup). Tactic: Gengenpress deafault no changes with formation 4-2-3-1 all default roles for Gengenpress GK - Nyland RB - Hutton CB - Chester CB - Tunzabe LB - Taylor CM - McGinn CM - Houihane (Bjarnsson/Lansbury as fitness dictates) RW - El Ghazi AMC - Grealish LW - Bolasie ST - Abraham Others subbed in as required. Never playing anyone with fitness below 95% (Squad is so huge you dont need to) Sold - Whelan, Jedinak. Elmohamady - Far too many players in their positions already Signed - One crappy CB as a backup (can't remember who off the top of my head) on loan as cover for CB/LB - Bedeau does most of the CB cover though
  6. How are you actually handling the Manager and signings in game, are you manager to complete the signings and the 'head coach' is your assistant?
  7. well thats why england is overpowered then...
  8. Loads in league 1 in real life. Just this weekend there was 1, if you get a bad weekend you can often get close to the full fixture list wiped out. Wouldn't expect every team to have one every season. But if you are one of the lower funded teams in there (which I am) I wouldn't think that you would go more than 2 years without a postponed game, and some years you could get up to 4/5
  9. Hmm, 6th season in league one now and i've not seen a single league 1 match postponed
  10. it is true to real life. Note its only transfer fees, not wages
  11. Cutting out westmorland . At least merge it with cumberland into the modern county of Cumbria
  12. that'll teach me to read the comments Didn't even notice i had posted before
  13. Think this thread is in the wrong section, as its not about football manager. Can a mod transfer it over to OTF, its more appropriate there.
  14. I have been playing in the english lower leagues for a while now on FM18, but have never seen the matches postponed due to weather (either snow or waterlogging). Has this feature been removed from the game? You still see it a lot IRL from League One downwards
  15. Yeah i understand it has nothing to do with SEGA/SI, wasn't expecting to have an official response, just figured there is a lot of football manager players here, so maybe one of the forum members would have an idea
  16. https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/the-football-manager-2018-tournament-tickets-38575216511 Anyone know about this, looks fun but worried it may be a scam????
  17. I want a circular pitch with 20 goals spaced equally around the outside. We could then have all 20 teams playing at once. Only question is should there be 1 ball, 10 balls or 20 balls?
  18. Its football Manager, not Political master. If you want to control the politics you need a different game (Maybe Civ??)
  19. On a plane. Though sometimes it is cheaper to use car/ferry/train but this will often take longer, especially if traveling abroad to a different continent.
  20. Should make a bid to sign that marquee tent, it would make a great keeper
