Januzaj is great in a few seasons time.

I'm worried he won't get many minutes with me since Erikson is too good to bench. at least there are a lot of scrub teams in france

On 2014 I played Mata ahead of him for years. Until he got to 3.5 stars he wasn't starting for me, but once he gets there he was getting progressively more goals and assists and I couldn't really bench him .

welp, Erikson out for 7-9 months after a CR7 tackle in an international. looks like Adnan's time to shine.

this would have been a prime save-scrumming opportunity in my past
#4084
Whats save scrumming?

Feeling good for this season. Currently winning the opening game of the season 2-0. Massively improved the squad over the summer with some sweet free transfers, would be massively disappointed to finish below third. It took me a while but i finally figured out the free transfer market and how to find decent players.
#4085
I said that and then in the first two games all four of my strikers get injured ffs

Just found a decent free striker though, so if I manage to get him then alls good.
#4086
Save-scumming=abusing your saves

something bad happens, reload previous save
#4087
I give up on my accrington save, at least for now. I hate playing it, and can't be arsed with this initial thing of bedding in my signings and losing every game. I'm going into every game expecting to lose, and I've tried as much as possible to get better results but I'm getting no where. It started great (in the first season), but after christmas it didn't matter what I did I just couldn't string together two wins. Started the new season with a win and a much better team, but they haven't gelled in the slightest and are playing terribly. I wouldn't mind but it's the better players (4.5 stars) who are playing the worst because they are new. I'm thinking a season of bedding them in and finishing midtable is seemingly necessary, but I just cba. I thought I'd actually make some progress rather than lingering around midtable again .

I'll come back to it some other time, at the minute I'm done with it though .

second season at PSG, won everything I possibly could have [which you'll remember included a Club World Championship] except the League Cup. tryna manager France in the Olympics as well.
#4089
Going to pick a championship squad with decent training / youth facilities and use them in my next save. Not keen on a mega challenge

I really, really dislike the new game. The match engine is absolutely ******ed. Regret buying it and won't buy the next one (until i get lured in by the new features)


As a result I've gone back to FM13 recently.

They just released a patch for the new one which will hopefully improve it. In the meantime I've been playing my FM14 Soviet save, my Pyunik Yerevan team in the third tier featuring Fabio and Gary Caldwell. Sensational.

Gary Caldwell. The definition of a transfer coup.

Had a quick look at the log and no mention of ridiculous long shots is a tad upsetting.

4-4-2 with LAM/RAM is doing me wonders at the minute. Scoring for fun and really solid defensively. Had a varied amount of success when switching to 4-2-3-1. I sat there for a good while at the start of this save and put some thought into player roles/ team instructions because I was having very mixed success in all my saves, but I've struck on something that works now. Rooney/RVP/Falcao all have more goals than games played so far, and the wingers are getting tons of assists so s'all good.

I don't really understand the star ratings though, I've got players who are apparently "Leading Player for the PL" but are 2.5 stars. Poor Smalling is playing his little heart out (like 7.5 form for as long as I can remember) but he's only got two stars.

It's always been like that. Once had a lad at Arsenal called RICHARD BACON, had decent defensive stats (15-16 for all the crucial CB stats and physical stats apart from agility and pace) and everything else was average. Basically he was no-nonsense. Anyway he was 1.5 star current and 2 star potential but would constantly get ratings over 8.0. He even scored in the Champions League final for me

I loved him like my own son
#4107
On the last game, RVP had his best ever season like three seasons in at like 2 stars ability. He bagged an absolutely ridiculous amount of goals and won the ballon d'or too .

Everyone also went down half a star at the exact same time at about January. Same rating "Leading/good/decent PL player" but went down half a star for both ability and potential. It's basically an entirely useless measure of player ability/potential. I wish they would just put a number on it instead. Any of these websites which tell you the wonderkids have numbers associated with how good they get so it's definitely in the game files.

it depends on how good your side is. like obviously a 4 star GK for Luton isn't gonna be 4 stars with City. I think it works pretty well if you have a good assman

With my 2013 still down (I miss my regens), and 2006 not compatable with my laptop (love those regens more!) I attempted at playing 09. Jesus 09 was not a good year for FM.

I've seen ass manager but I can't say I've heard ass man.

Definitely gonna use it now though.

Decided against getting the new game. Going to download a transfer update for '14 and go from there.

Edit: Started a new game as Chelsea. My scouts are recommending De Gea, Blaszczykowski and Farfan.

Apparently Cech, Courtois, Schurrle, Hazard, Oscar, Willian and Salah aren't good enough.

Edit2: Sold Ramires to PSG for £34m, went to buy Khedira as a replacement for £9m until PSG sniped him from me.

Trying FM15 again using a tactic stolen from some dude online (4-2-3-1, max tempo, max pressing, direct passing, high defensive line, sweeper keeper. Working pretty well so far, 3 wins and a draw including a 6-0 demolition of Rangers and a David Trezeguet hat-trick)


Anyway i'm only really posting because I noticed that Guangzhou Evergrande bought Kolo Toure (away to turn 35) for a fee of £5k and are paying him

Jorge Jesus is trying to steal my job. #VoteUKIP

Joke's on him though, the game he attended was a brave 3-2 win for my lads at the Etihad.
