  1. Probably not a 'hidden gem' but this guy looks great for a 17 year old. Would make a great B2B midfielder if you work on his positioning.
  2. Diédhiou doesn't have his 6 game suspension - not sure if it's something that can be implemented
  3. Definitely one of the best starting CA's I've had with a regen from my own youth intake
  4. New player roles: Segundo Volante, Mezzala and Carrilero?
  5. I've not watched it yet as I'm at work, but I really hope data analysts have some involvement. What I'd really like to see is a scout report that gives us knowledge of his stats and personality (especially with dynamics) and then we can get a data analyst to look at things like dribbles per game, successful dribbles, area where the player has key passes or creates ccc/hc.
  6. This is what the 2017 manual states: Jumping Reach Jumping Reach reflects how good a player is at reaching the ball in the air. It indicates the highest point an outfield player can reach with his head. It is not necessarily reflective of how tall a player is, but when considering his jumping ability, it makes sense to take into account the player’s height. For example, a player of 200+cm will still possess a high reach even if he is a poor jumper, and a player who measures in at 170cm will struggle to compete at the same height due to the 30cm difference in height between the two. Miles Jacobson also said on Twitter that two players with differing height but the same jumping reach will reach the same height.
  7. Fairly certain that's incorrect. Jumping reach refers to how high the player reaches when jumping, regardless of height. Height does affect how high the jumping reach attribute can go (obviously smallers are restricted to lower ratings whereas taller players higher). There are some posts on this forum that say it too. It's this way to help compare how good players are in the air. A taller player may not need to jump for aerial battles so they can win more than someone who is smaller but has the same reach.
  8. It doesn't matter what height they are, it's all about jumping reach. If a 6ft5 player has 13 jumping reach and a 5ft8 player also has 13 jumping reach then they both jump the same height; height isn't something additional to add on.
  9. Yes it was. The only difference it it's a 1tb HD but that's more than enough and I have a 2tb external hdd anyway. Great recommendation and thanks. Would recommend this to anybody reading.
  10. Got mine today also and it's fantastic. Had a bit of a problem at first in that I had a boot error when I loaded it up but it seems to be fine now. I've started my unemployed career too! I have 36 leagues loaded iirc and it runs so quickly. I will do a benchmark test tomorrow but I did one on my old laptop earlier and it had 10 and 20 minutes as the results.
  11. I was going to buy it yesterday but I got sidetracked and I wanted to check a few things and then it went. I managed to pick one up on eBay for £465 but it's a used one. It's also the 1tb version but that's more than enough plus I have a 2tb external hdd spare.
  12. Ok thanks for the help , I'll get that ordered when I get home from work. I currently have an intel pentium 2020m and I think it loads quick enough with 12 leagues and large DB but it's on it's way out. Now they've sold out , that's frustrating
  13. That refurbished HP with Intel Core i7-6700HQ looks like a good price and I might buy one tonight. I've been trying to find a laptop with i7-6700 around £500 so that fits the bill. How many leagues do you reckon it can load with all graphics (facepack,kits,badges etc) ? I'm looking to load a lot of leagues and start unemployed. I play on 2d so don't really care about the graphics card.
  14. Really? I'm playing a 4-2-3-1 and I use a winger on the right side and he's been the most influential player in the team for a few seasons. He also tracks back well and helps the fullback out. I'm predicted 20th in the prem and I'm up to 7th in January.
  15. Yes you get the option to change expectations in January. I did it myself in my save last night and got an extra £10m plus 40k p/w wages after spending big in the summer. I've used interviews a few times to blackmail the board and it's fine. I've imporved facilities , youth recruitment , junior coaching and more from it. There doesn't seem to be any negativity from fans or board if you say you'll stay if they agree to promises.
  16. I'm in my 7th season and I haven't had to promise any players anything. Sometimes the screen comes up with stuff and I remove them all and they accept no promises.
  17. I was using the same formation with different roles when I first started my save. I found that the middle was too congested and and the flanks were too exposed. I thought the football played was fantastic with a lot of intricate triangular passing but it was hard to get a good balance.
  18. I've just had this too. So frustrating.
  19. You should be able to right click his name and send him home. It might be under rest or something.
  20. Sorry if I'm missing something , but haven't you sorted them by team name? Not date.
  21. You need to update FM I guess. go to steam library and right click over FM17 and go to properties, then to updates tab and then automatic updates. It'll keep you up to date.
  22. Probably around 15 hours I'd say. I usually get 2 seasons done a week if I'm really into the save. I'm about to finish my 4th season and I'll get the 5th done on the weekend.
  23. I know that feeling. i've been reading the forums all day planning my FM night (it's sad I know). Luckily I only have 1 hr and 20 mins to go!
