  1. I've brought Maradona, Cruyff and Socrates to the club so I don't think the fans will be complaining too much.
  2. That's great to hear, look forward to the next update! I didn't realise it had the managerial greats in it too, feel a tad guilty kicking Howard out of the bosses chair in my save now
  3. Downloaded this and it's really well made for such a large undertaking, big well done on that. I must say though there are some very strange picks for Everton. Amokachi, Brian Kidd, Fellaini, Gravesen and Pienaar should be nowhere near that 25 (I'm assuming Stones is just there as a youth prospect or something otherwise the same goes for him). In their place looking at our historical greats you'd really need to be looking at Amokachi and Kidd out for two of Tommy Lawton, Bob Latchford and Graeme Sharp, Fellaini and Gravesen out for Colin Harvey and Peter Reid and Pienaar out for Alex "The Golden Vision" Young, the guy's pretty much a god to older Everton fans. I get that you like to have some recent players in there but with a club like Everton that's won a buttload of trophies in its history but nothing other than a single FA Cup for coming on 30 years it's natural that the vast majority of the players come from our more distant past rather than the last decade. I'm guessing it's too late to make any changes for this version but if you make an FM17 version they're ideas to keep in mind.
  4. Gotta be honest I don't get why people start at a club and then get rid of almost the entire squad in the space of a couple of years, defeats the purpose of managing that particular team when it's completely unrecognisable within 3 seasons.
  5. One concern I have about Deulofeus buy back clause, it has a two year shelf life where they can buy him for €8m at the end of this season and €10m at the end of next season then the buyback option expires, is it possible to replicate that in game or is it a binary choice between a permanent buy back clause or no buy back clause at all?
  6. they're legends for different reasons, Southall for being a fantastic long serving player (and during our most successful period) and Ferguson for being a bright light through our darkest period, for consistently grabbing important goals especially against our rivals, and for his undying love for the club and its fans, there's a good reason a lot of people my age (early 20s) idolise the guy. So yeah I think everyone would agree Southall was significantly better in his position as a player but they should both be down as legends in the game imo
  7. If you play with a false nine as the forward Zach Clough is perfect for that role
  8. Not sure that really fits in here, not a lot the researcher can do about the wages players expect after the game has started outside of lowering their reputations I guess, if you think it's unrealistic that's more of a general FM bug than specifically Everton related. It's common enough for players to start negotiations a good 20% above their current wage in negotiations for FM16 though, I just waited til mid May and got them signed up for a small pay cut.
  9. Just be careful about them sneaking transfer release clauses in to the contract
  10. two posts above you he confirms that it is being added at the next update..
  11. Yeah I just say we can get Champions League with the young players coming through and that pacifies them generally.
  12. If you can get top 4 first year it's fairly easy to keep hold of your players, if they want to leave for CL football tell them to hold on for a year or two because of the talented youngsters coming through, if they say they want more money either offer them a pay rise (Lukaku, Mirallas) or tell them that money isn't everything (works particularly well with Stones, Coleman and Barkley)
  13. I play a 4-2-3-1 with a standard back 4 (FB support + CD defensive), a defensive DLP and a supporting AP in centre mid, then a False 9 with an attacking midfielder behind him and two supporting inside forwards either side, high line of defence with low tempo with an emphasis on keeping the ball. I'll post a screenshot of the squad when I get a chance later but the star performers were Coleman, Barkley and Jags with Kone and Lukaku also putting in decent shifts.
  14. So this just happened.
