I honestly thought I just wasn't clicking the button properly or something at first. Bloody Timothee.

Steve Gibson seems to be going through some things. Dismissed the league as not important and doesn't want us to be outclassed "too often" in what is literally a one off match.

I think your game might be borked.

Also - I'm finally back into a save! As Nottingham Forest!

Start of the third season. It was Riqui Puig after having him on loan for a season and a half. I actually find it quite hard to do much with budgets like £64m, cause it means I aim a bit higher with who I want to sign, but invariably when I go after players valued at about £30m with it, the clubs want about £60m and I'm just like... well, no. And then I dunno who to sign cause I don't feel like having to pay £40m for players valued at about £15-20m either.

I currently have £49m left after signing Puig, and I kinda want to sign Ruben Neves from Wolves because they've been relegated, but he's still valued at £32m and doesn't seem to have kicked up a fuss so £49m doesn't seem like it'd be enough. 

Although having said that, after writing that I just bid his value to see what they'd negotiate to and it was exactly £49m.

It's almost like they somehow know my budget and just went "yes, all of that". Still don't want to pay it? Hate paying big fees in FM so much for some reason :lol: Needs to be a network game where I feel like there's no consequences cause it'll fizzle out ASAP for me to just go mad spending money.

Completely agree. I often refuse to pay big transfer fees because god knows the computer rarely comes in for my players with HUGE offers.

For the 1st time at the start of my 3rd season with Coventry I asked the board to step in and handle a transfer, they paid 5m (the optional future fee amount) and sorted the guys contract out so I didn't have to worry about upsetting them. Was nice cause if they do that, it doesn't count towards your transfer budget until its gone through. Slipped Hiroki Abe in for £1.5m just before they signed everything off and my transfer budget went bye bye.

I think the value system in FM has always been a little 'off', though maybe I just don't understand how it works fully. I had a defender 'valued' at £3.5m but any club that came in for him would bid only about £1.5m. Not to mention the 4 1/2* youngster I accidentally offered out for transfer (who then wouldn't sign a new contract with me) only attracted bids of £100k and when I go in for youngsters 'worse' than him they want MILLIONS

Yeah, I've never understand why you always have to pay obscene amounts, about x10 a players value, but rarely get other teams coming in agreeing to similar offers with you. Most of the time they offer less than the players value and make it non-negotiable and it's like... why would I accept this?

I had Crystal Palace come in trying to sign one of my U19's the other day, and because I'm familiar with playing as Boro and the players we have, I know he has no potential so didn't care. Valued at £40k and on like £700 a week, they bid £30k and wanted me to pay £325 of his wages. Crystal Palace.

Honestly didn't know what to make of that. Can't be fucked financially cause I negotiated it to £40k without the wage thing and they agreed immediately. In my head I rationalised it as them/the game wanting to get one over on me.

In other news, £22m for Guendouzi would be okay wouldn't it? Can't be arsed with the £49m for Neves but £22m I'd do, and he's currently transfer listed because he won't sign a new deal.

I have no experience with playing Guendouzi on any FM so I dunno if he gets better than this or if this is his ceiling. No idea if he'd even want to sign for me anyway tbh, plus Benfica are currently in for him.

Not to be annoying, spamming the thread as I am at the moment, but...

...what the fuck? What has happened here. Is news archived anywhere in game where I can find out why Milan released him, if he refused to sign a new deal or something?

And why has he only got one single team only giving him a trial? I've seen it happen a few times with Oblak being transfer listed cause he wouldn't sign a new deal but he usually has teams offering him contracts as early as February. Donnarumma just being let go and only getting a trial at Leverkusen is weird.

It's a beautiful game sometimes. 

Wish my players were that selfless in front of goal. Can't count the number of missed opportunities cuz the forward hammers it into the keeper or past the post instead of just passing.

The wingers just blasting it in to the side netting instead of squaring it is so annoying and common it's basically a meme on the FM subreddit.

Started a new game last night with Liverpool (1st time with a 'big name' club in fm20)

Planning a 'Britball' game where I'm only allowed to signed British Players (likely an issue when Brexit happens in game I guess). The plan for Non-British players is to sell them in the last year of their contract rather than look to release or get rid of them asap.

It'd be self sabotage I just dropped Salah, Firmino, Mane...Alison..Van Dijk....oh shit thats a lot of players. I'm look to try and do a transition to Brit Players.,

Any suggestions on Talent to keep an eye out for? Excluding people like Sancho etc.

  • Eddie Nkeitah? Had him in my Cov save in Fm19 and he was smashing 1-2 goal per game in my 4th season.

Nketiah is good.

Jude Bellingham from Birmingham is 16 and generally develops well. Ben Wilmot is good. When I had my Leicester save the good English performers were Maddison, Chilwell, Gray, Choudhury, Barnes. Jake Cooper from Millwall and Connor Goldson from Rangers are capable defenders. Karamoko Dembele from Celtic is a 16 year old right winger. Chelsea and Arsenal's English players generally develop well.

I downloaded the demo of FM2020, and barely got 10 minutes in before a) the classic "EURRRRGHHH" of pre-season drudge hit me, and b) all the dark purple killed my eyes. I decided at that point that this was (yet another) one of FM that I'm skipping.

...But since then I've been watching lollujo's "Non-League to Legend" series on YouTube, and GOD DAMN IT WHY DO I DO THIS TO MYSELF

So yeah, may buy the actual game tonight, just for the sake of starting a new game with Brackley Town. We'll see how stupid I am. :rolleyes:

:lol: NLTL is brilliant. But you can track down a non-purple skin to save your eyes. The TCS skin is lovely and very user friendly, I think that comes in a grey alternate?
