>>74792442
Danish First Division (which is the 2nd tier). The problem is that, ideally, I'd like to sign 5 or 6 players but our wage budget is not large enough and our transfer budget is practically 0.

So I'll be able to sign 2 players, maybe 3 if they are not so good. All free signings, of corse.

I dunno which update brought it, but as of 17.3, the "Agreement Change" (the Brexit) section in the pre-game Editor has been modified somewhat, allowing you to modify work permit rules. When using my "old" Brexit scenario file, I can only obtain a 16 or 17 foreign player rule instead, as seen in pic related.

If you play in a shit country, your save would be nigh unplayable.

>>74793549
Ruskies aren't exactly cheap; but you presumably can. You can't sign Englishmen on free however, and they can't leave without a compensation (or you releasing them IIRC). As I've said before (weeks or months ago), the AI doesn't give two shits about Brexit anyway, even with the harshest scenario possible.

>>
>>74793700
1) If your club possesses its stadium and it has been build in the last 25 years, you won't get a new one.
2) I've found that asking for a new stadium or expansions is harder in FM17, and you r average attendance really has to be close to the maximum capacity of your stadium.
3) Your chairman has hidden attributes and it's always possible that he's a retard.

I've tested the work permit feature by... copying and pasting the old ones. For some reason FM tells me there's still that stupid 17 foreign player rule, but also tells me that new work permit rules are being applied. I guess I have to simulate for a couple of seasons to see what actually happens.

>>74794682
Cool, thanks mate. Previously I've been getting scouts with high JPA/JPP only, is it worth an overhaul to bring in people with more varied knowledge?

>>74794761
If you're a top team and already have 1-2 top top notch scouts, increasing knowledge is always more important than another good scout.

Better knowledge will give you knowledge of dozens, if not hundreds or thousands of players and more staff too just by hiring a staff member.

Here we go, I'll simulate that for a couple of seasons. I've picked the version with the UEFA Cup and the Cup Winner's Cup (not sure how much of a difference there's between the UEFA Cup version and the Europa League version but whatever). Leagues loaded are the top division of Belgium, France, Germany, Italy and Spain as well as the Championship for England.

Installing it now & read through the change list which looks pretty great. Never liked it as much as FM so will just be a nice little distraction while watching baseball/sports. Big change I like the sound of which could be terrible is there change to injuries. Sounds like injuries are more targeted among areas on the body and are a greater amount of small injuries that pending on the player/position can turn to nagging/major injuries

While the Intertoto and the CWC had a few interesting winners, the CL is still mostly dominated by the big clubs (and especially Dirtmount). But it's not real life anyway as Benfica found a way to win the EL in 17/18.

>when its the year 2017 and they still haven't fixed that bug where a defender tackles it backwards, and the closest marker jogs to the ball and ONLY STARTS SPRINTING ONCE THE OPPOSITION PLAYER HAS THE BALL

literally remember this bug in 2010 fucking hell myles

That the defenders are very absorbed with the opposition player carrying the ball is nothing new. Far post crosses always have been incredibly deadly as a result: no matter if you play three at the back, four at the back, five at the back, if a player is running down his wing, all your defenders will converge towards him, allowing for a very easy tap-in at the far post. In FM17, low crosses-passes to a player just behind the defenders also work incredibly well.

i found nothing objectionable about the 2nd goal in the webm

stuff like that happens all the time like with sane repeatedly catching the RB for Monaco napping and eventually scoring from just running past him when his head was turned

sorry its for ants but just see how the defender, the last man, jogs over to the guy about to pick up the ball

then when he does he legit just stops and goes in a different direction i dont get it

It never actually is. If you go in shit countries, as soon as you start getting your first EL/CL buxx you'll steamroll the league. In big countries the clubs are more competitive due to being more established, but you also have much more money and reputation (so don't manage in fucking England). Let's say that topping PSG, Buyern, Juve, Real and Barça should be harder on the short term.
>>
>>74804351
if you mean picking a shitty team in a good division and making ridiculous promises to the board right off the bat, just pick anything. telling the darmstadt board you'll win the bundesliga in 2016-17 probably isn't an option, but you could try

if you mean a league that will continue to provide tough opposition long-term in a save, without any self-imposed restrictions, you're out of luck. it doesn't exist.

So I promised one of my best players who wanted to leave that we would get promoted this year and he promised to stay. Now we aren't even halfway through the season and he says I haven't kept my promise, even though we are in 1st place, we've won every match and we are on course to winning promotion. He bitched to the rest of his teammates and now morale has gone to shit.

Chu Young is pretty average, Gilardino, who for some reason is an absolute beast, was injured.
And Ninis is a step below their standard. Fredy Guarin was on the bench, so couldn't score his obligatory cup final blooter.

Wouldn't have mattered, though. We're unbeatable so long as we have Stevie-T, the Geordie Colossus, in the team.

I come to you from the unexplored and alien land of "managing a big club".

>Rooney is fat lazy prick
>Kagawa is the reincarnation of Ronaldinho circa 2004
>Midfield of Cabaye and Strootman guarantees 20 chances per game
>Chris Smalling is the single greatest player of all time
>playing de gay guarantees a 50% clean sheet rate even with a defence made entirely of u18s
>Finding players to sign is impossible, as even the ones I thought were "world class" are only rated 2 stars by my scouts
>Occasional 0 - 1 /trb/ losses are the only thing stopping an endless wave of 5 - 0 wins

All in all, its quite fun. The regens that develop later in the game pale in comparison to the top real players in their prime.
To keep it interesting while I wait for the game to get padded with regens, I'm going to do a nice guy act, meaning no fines or speaking aggressively. I'm hoping it'll into a Zola/Rijkaard clusterfuck during the 2nd or 3rd season.

FM13, he was already here. I joined in November, haven't signed anybody yet.
Oddly, there is only 1 full back at the club. A 34 year old Evra. Ancelotti was here before me, who I believe uses fullbacks. There is also a remarkable lack of CMs. Seeing how ridiculously good the players are though, I understand why Miles insists on making the AI retarded. If they were even slightly competent, they'd never lose a game.

Even at its most retarded, the fact that real players have bazillion PPMs/Traits also has to be taken in account. No matter how stupid the AI's formations, PPMs/Traits will dictate in great part how a player behaves regardless of what you tell him to do.

Managing a big club: Part II

>Rooney is in the reserves
>Had to sign Kieran Gibbs for LB cover because any other left back would've cost £30m
>Finally lost a match, 4 - 0 away at City.
>Despite only 1 loss, my job status is currently "very insecure"
>Nani simply shoots from 30 yards out with every touch of the ball, even with creative freedom set to low

My only plan at the moment is to bring Rooney back into the team, then strip him of the captaincy if he doesn't perform. That should be fun.
All in all I can't wait for the game to become a bit more regen-focused so I can go manage Wrexham in the conference.

Yes. I can't stop after a loss. If you can, you're a better man than I.

This hack. After getting 4 relegations in 9 seasons on my old save, now he's back in the prem and at it again. This fucking guy has given me hours of entertainment.

He must've calls Miles' mum a slag or something. He is always a disaster in this game.
