  1. FM17: Arsenal

    Just out of interest....does everyone here always give a halftime and full time team talk? I always ignore my assistant when he says "don't say anything as it will only complicate things." Anyone else?

    If it works for you then awesome! I play attacking football so that's what I train the majority of the season.
  3. FM17: Arsenal

    Depends on the time of the season and how my team is doing. Pre season is fitness, rest of the time I'll do what I want to improve on generally. Players will train positions specifically in my tactics. Individual training on attributes that need to be strengthened.
  4. FM17: Arsenal

    So this is my current first team. Lukaku is a beast of a goalscorer. Alexis & Ozil are pushing 30, and I still have Iwobi who plays regular first team football. Reine-adelaide, and reiss nelson are both on loan for first team football as I struggle to fit them in. This is my "futures" team, who have great potential, but seeing as I have such high expectations from the board, I am struggling to fit them in for first team games. Any advice? I have won the champions league, premier league and FA cup in my time with Arsenal. Just bought Asensio this window as he has a good potential but again will struggle to fit him in as much as i would like. Considering selling perhaps Xhaka? I have already offered Elneny out as his contract is up in 2020 and he won't sign a new one. And I dont want him on the team anyway as he is surplus. So....Do I just swap them round every few games? Play them in cups? Bring them on as subs? The high potential players are all being tutored and well trained so it just comes down to game time. Has anyone experimented with adding extra friendlies for U23 SQUAD and playing them in that? I am not overly keen in loaning them out until they're of at least Championship side quality. I have Milwall as an affiliate and they're in the Championship at the moment. I have also been selecting my english players in International games as much as possible....mostly Reiss Nelson though, as he is banging in the goals and assists! Anyway, any advice greatly appreciated

    Who here has kept wenger on as Dof? I've just finished my second season, having won the FA cup and champions league (beat bayern 1-0, it was sweet). But I digress..Basically, I noticed that both icardi and Donnarumma were unhappy and both wanted to join me at the mighty Arsenal, so i got Wenger to bid and offer their contracts, which he did. However, he lowballed both their contracts, Donnarumma went to PSG and Icardi went to Chelsea. I bought Pedraj Rajkovic (chose him ahead of Alban Lafont) then I had a youth keeper brought in by Wenger who is basically a wonderkid and he brought in a striker from porto who looks alright, but I am annoyed that I missed out on 2 great players because of his cheapness!!

    I could probably afford him as I have 100mil transfer budget. But I'm very much wanting to develop my youth players and save all the budget for one big player, especially seeing as the transfer fees are so high!! Guess it does reflect the real world in that sense haha
  7. FM17: Arsenal

    Oooooh I've just been told james Rodriguez is available for transfer (funny that) and it would be around £60mil. I'm torn. I've got some excellent youth, and my main midfield front 3 are alexis ozil & iwobi. I'm torn on if I should sign him or not?!? also, what have been done when cech goes downhill? I've got a 16yr old keeper with a great potential of better than cech, but he isn't premier league quality yet. I'm giving him games but I don't have anything for inbetween. Do I stick with youth or get someone else in?
  8. Club profile page help

    I've just hooked my laptop up to a computer monitor that shows 1280x1024 and I can now see hot prospect, so it was due to the screen resolution! my question has been answered, thanks for your suggestions guys!
  9. Club profile page help

    what resolution are you using then? can you see hot prospects?
  10. Club profile page help

    ive got a large DB, 42k players....something in that region i think it was.
  11. Club profile page help

    This isn't my club i am looking at, i am going thorugh other clubs to look for their hot prospect so i can potentially sign them. There is no scrolling option, and I've gone through most of the major leagues, none of them let me scroll.

  13. When going through different club profile pages why can I see captain, vice captain etc but not hot prospect? How do I change this? I'm using the default skin if that matters.
  14. FM17: Arsenal

    wow. fair enough then. A few other suggestions I'd have are: Kingsley Coman Leroy Sane Bernardo Silva Andrija Zivkovic Domenico Berardi
  15. FM17: Arsenal

    Haven't you got iwobi or nelson? Or a youth player? Some of the youth I've got through are world class. Saving up to get messi haha. If no youth then thomas lemar from Monaco
