FM16: Nottingham Forest FC - 150 Years & Counting

Recommended Posts

I am on the verge of being sacked. We can't buy a win and we were 1 up against Sheffield Wednesday only for them to score two late wonder goals to give us another defeat.

Feeling the pressure eh? I've just lost Oliviera injured for 6 weeks :mad: He was banging them in as well.

We drew with Preston and Derby and we're now playing a little better. Currently sitting in 21st place coming towards the end of November. Could seriously do with stringing one or two wins together. Oliveira is now on a dry spell and Walker can't seem to find any form. Ward has been shockingly bad for me so far as has Mendes. Oliver Burke and Osborn along with Motta have been the best players so far.

Decided I'm going to start again and I want my team to play exactly how I want them to. I'm planning on making less players this time.

What sort of reps do you guys start with when you're Forest?

I nearly got sacked in the my first season too, needed 8 points in 5 games to survive and we had an easy run so we got 10 points.

Budget in second season was fixed at 6m so finally got who I wanted and removed the deadwood:

In midfield I use Cohen, RLC and Osborn, it seems to work really well. Up front I rotate from Bamford and a regen (bit injury prone it seems) who seems to score every game. On the wings I use Britt and Lansbury. Finally sorted out defence, Mills and Fox were the culprits last season, couldn't keep a clean sheet with them so fixed every position in defence, LB, CB and RB. Also getting Boruc was a huge improvement.

Without a doubt we are the best team in the league, hoping to achieve automatic promotion this season and deep cup runs. (Although I think we need to achieve promotion or we are probably broke financially after my spending)

I started with no qualifications and Sunday league footballer, but I prefer that as I like to build up from the beginning. Makes it a bit more difficult!

I've stepped away from Forest for the time being. I prefer that but it just seems to cause me a few issues with Forest every season. I think I'll have to redefine how I want to play if we're to be successful again.

How are you doing so well Rob? I've tried a similar set up to you and no one performed well enough for a long enough time.

Either way, congratulations. Any ideas on who you will be releasing, buying and possibly selling?

Well done Rob :applause: I have just finished pre season, Oliviera and O'Grady both injured for 5 weeks, looks like Dexter and Tyler are my 1st and 2nd choice.

Interesting, I assume that Dorus had a good season for you? How much are you going to be signing Mendes for?

Mendes for £3.2m. Dorus played every game, but has decreased in his levels.

Does Mendes have an agreed price at the start of the game? That's to be expected tbh. Are you planning to keep him as first choice or looking to replace him? How have Walker, Osborn, Burke, Dimi and Iacovitti developed for you? Got any screenshots after one season? Anyone else who has impressed a little or improved a little?

I'll get some pics up in a bit.

Right, here we are.

The 'highly rated' youngsters, plus a couple of the first intake.

Osborn and Burke have just received new contracts.

Brereton is a random at the moment, Walker had a quiet season. Depending if I manage to get another striker in to support Dave up front, I may send him out on loan.

In real life him and Hayes are rated highly aren't they? Aren't most of our youngsters? Does Gomis have random PA as well? Because he improved a little in my save.

Yeah.

Brereton has been scoring a fair few for the 18s this season, and Gomis has the knack of doing the sublime or the ridiculous (like his overhead kick winner)...

Much improved this season, although poor cup runs, losing to Liverpool away in extra time then running into Everton away in the FA cup

Managed to lose Mendes for 5 months the week before the start of the season.. Suppose I'll have to unleash Twisty on the Premier League then.

Just like real lifa ha. We've got the worst conversion rate of chances. We've also created the most chances as well. There was a stat before the Derby game which was insanely nuts but I can't remember it.

No idea how you've managed that Rob but well done.

What's the deal with the FFP embargo, is it automatically lifted in January if you stay within the wage budget?

I don't think it's the wage budget. If you look at your finances page it shows you at the bottom whether you'll meet it. I think, barring any stupid free transfer signings and crippling yourself even more you should be ok.

Has anyone had any luck getting a WP with Dylan Burns? I'm in season three now and he's been on a month to month contract for over a year because New Zealand aren't highly enough ranked for him to get a Work Permit apparently. Two more years until he has English second nationality, but AC Milan and a bunch of other big sides are sniffing around him now & I'll only get £625k compo for him if he goes.

I've not been successful in getting one for him yet. Granted I haven't got far enough the game. I'm not sure whether he'd get one in real life. I'd imagine the club are looking to keep him at the moment so maybe we'll get lucky.

How are you getting on Mayzie? I'm sure I've seen you post that you signed Tielemans?

My pre-season went averagely as we won 6 and lost 3 of our games. The three losses coming against CSKA, Lierse and Newport. The wins coming against lesser teams. The tactic is still being tweaked and we've just lost 3-1 to Brighton. Drawing level on the stroke of half-time it was an even game. At half-time whatever I said didn't work as we collapsed to let them score twice in the last 20 minutes.

With my new formation I've signed two centre halves in Oguchi Onewyu and Khalid Boulahrouz. Whilst Wilson, Fox and Lichaj have departed the club with a number of youngsters going out on loan. We've also seen a number of new arrivals on the staff front but too many to name.

How did you get Tielsman?

Just got promoted but he doesn't want to join Nottingham Forest as it isnt big enough.

I'm sure he was transfer listed so he managed to snap him up for £10m.

He's transfer listed in my game too but just not interested in joining Nottingham Forest :(

Oh, not sure then. I can't see this save lasting either tbh. Maybe I'm just not cut out to manage Forest. Lost 3-0 to Rotherham, it was 0-0 at half-time. Drew 1-1 with Charlton despite having more of the possession and the better of the chances. Jonny Williams picked up an injury in the Rotherham game which has ruled him out for 9 to 11 months with a cruciate injury so I've terminated his loan. With my tactic I've dropped the AMC into another MC role.

As I say that we manage to win 2-0 against Bolton. Iacovitti touted as the next Alex McLeish and Osborn is dubbed the new Paul Gascoigne. Not sure how good a defender McLeish was and whether touted or dubbed stand for the same of different in an FM sense.

Steve,

Its automatically lifted in January.

We had to do a bit of work with the coders to try and get things reflected as accurately as we could, even then, we still found it difficult to replicate properly. The finances are still very tough to manage though. I think I lucked out with my tactical setup more than anything.

It's a big enough headache to understand in the real world without trying to replicate it in a game!

I am just mucking around on the demo at the moment but after 3 games in pre-season I have already picked up another 5 injuries and all for several weeks rather than days. It feels like this year's game is designed to make us all feel more sympathetic towards Dougie.
