I have never before seen an AI team use an odd formation like this.

I'm not sure what's weirder, the formation, or that the game thinks it's a 4-5-1...

You're looking at it upside down: it's a 442 with the goalkeeper playing as a super-advanced striker, to confuse the opposition's defence. It's Guardiola's new genius tactic for next season (but don't tell anyone!...) ;):D

 They actually marry up well, if he was slow, he'd not have had the hamstring problems he had.

This, apparently, is a real football player...

Spoiler

And this is what they called him, even with that surname

I'm running a long holiday save on CM00/01, just to see what the in-game universe would look like in the present day. I'm currently in 2016, and... erm, I think I've broken the game. :(

As if Tottenham winning the league wasn't unrealistic enough, just look at the goals for and against columns! Needless to say, the race for the Golden Boot wasn't exactly the most exciting.

Hmm...

At least Deadpool chipped in with a few goals.

From memory in that version of the game Pace, Stamina and Strength were linked to age.

16yos had a maximum of 4, 17yos had a maximum of 8, 18yos 12 etc. Then the same thing happened to older players on the way down. 

 

If anything, this is actually a pretty good sign that Owen would go on to be quite fast (who knew?!)

The injury proneness on the other hand...

Worst. Signing. Ever.

Why are you still even playing him? Is he just a striker or can he play as an AM or Winger and that's why he's not scoring?

He's a creative False Nine in a 4-4-2 formation. Technically, he's my second best striker in star rating. He only started 14 games in the end, as he dropped down the striker hierarchy. He only got three assists to go with his no goals. I got him on a free, but for Key Player wages. Now, I'm going to try and sell him.

I cannot take my eyes away from "to switch to switch to". I guess double switching is a really difficult decision to make!

Unfortunately I don't have the screenshot from the seventh time this happend with the same player, or the one when he got upset with the fine.

Or the one when the captain of the team got upset as I let him leave later that season. Good times in Africa.

There were 6 minutes of added time at the end of this game...when Fekir's free kick hit the back of the net to level it the clock read 97:37

My Lyon save was nuts...quit it due to feeling victimised by the French FA (and some African ones) but dug these up from the France thread.

Do you think he'd do the player thing and refuse to celebrate a Spurs goal against Arsenal?

It's easier to destroy something from the inside.

Who knows. Have to wait and see.

That's true. He's just signed Leroy Sane from Man City so it's hardly destroying them...

He took over the USA National team in my save. Actually got them to the World Cup. made it through group phase and got beat by Brazil in the first round.

Not really funny, but a bit... weird, perhaps? 

Managing in Russia. signed a few first day newgen free agents at the start. The ones from outside Russia can't join until they are 18 so they are trial, so they can train and play youth matches. Didn't pay a lot of attention until I realized they were playing an attacking right winger, who I was retraining to be a standard right winger, at striker. And he was doing.... okay...

6795508338E6950AB43653806A0C5CA78E05808C

Its only under 19, but he ended up with something like 39 goals. New season, he has 9 gaols in 4 matches at the same level. Its fun and I'm now retraining him as a striker. 

In the past when I've had strikers who overperformed their skills, there was usually still something you could point to - outstanding physicals, workrate, off the ball, etc. Not so much with Mr. David. 

Also, the game changed his skin color since this screenie so that's a bit amusing.

must of been down the pub before scounting him "doesent have any real weakness" the scout seen his hair?

Your 4-4-2 would end up being a 4-2-2 no central midfielders after those two get sent off.

I don't have the screenshot but AFC Wimbledon used to have a player with the surname "Blackman" and a manager with the surname "Gaye" wanted him. The headline was.... Gaye chases Blackman.

When you are 3-0 down, with five minutes to go, the best option might be to just shoot directly from kick off.

5 penalties in one game. My team got one (missed it), conceded four (Berge scored all of them). Savage. Must be some kind of record.

Probably the biggest FA Cup shock I've ever seen on FM.

To be fair, Grimsby are top of the Conference Premier... but Arsenal are top of the Premier League, and they fielded a strong team.

Great work by the assistant referee.

I wonder if they sent a cheque for that £0, or just transferred it directly into our bank account  :idiot:
