    Its a fair upgrade, more background changes and match engine tweaks. Other things you don't think of until they happen - for example, I won my Europa group and seems you now skip 1st Knockout round if you do that

    Thought I'd found a great back 3 formation (4-2-4 more or less with defensive adjustment): 1 cd, 2 IWB's...works a treat, until you play a team that have 2 upfront or as I found out to my misery a CF like Zlatan and a guy in behind...got skelped 5-3 and knocked out by a very impressive Milan team.

    Won the treble in my second season with Barca. Gavi is ridiculous. Sesko and Yusuf Demir as well.

    And big Araujo at the back. Solid.

    Started a first season with Celtic as well @Moore and all I can say is, disappointed with most players. No one seems to really be at the level we expected.

    Started off the season fine enough, but now on a bad run with 2 defeats back to back in the league. Game is tougher it seems.

    Harder to shift players out the door as well.



    Perhaps ripping the entire backroom staff apart wasn't the smartest idea - but alas, there was barely * all there anyway.

    Loved FM but i just got sick of how scripted it feels. It's impossible for me to go on a realistic win streak even with Celtic.

    Just had the meeting to discuss my position, honestly surprised they waited this long!

    Given me another month to sort it out - * know how I am going to manage that, this game is brutal it would seem.
    Tried sticking to the formation in hope they just needed to get familiar with it - nowt. Tried using a saved tactic from last years game which was a great success for me - nothing for a few games. Changed it to a 5 at the back, still get beat off Hearts.

    Highly recommend Noah Jean Holm from Rosenborg. Looks an absolute monster

    Managed to get it to January - reckon their month review is due in a couple days and I am for the sack. The next 6 or so games went the same way as that run of games - woeful.

    Is the game much much harder or are all players honking? Not touched FM for a few years

    Out of curiosity mate, what formation are you playing and have you changed much in terms of squad personnel?

    I managed to bring in Berg and Bjorkan from Bodo/Glimt, but that’s all. I managed to get over £1m for Bolingoli, but apart from that I’ve struggled to get rid of deadwood.

    I started the season playing a 4-2-3-1, but was down 2-0 early doors in the first leg against Midtjylland, so changed to a 4-3-3 to try and get a foothold. Lost that game 2-1, but won comfortably at Celtic Park to progress. The 4-3-3 then seen me dominate but ultimately draw 0-0 on opening day against Hearts.

    Since then I’ve pretty much settled on 4-3-3 in Europe (with Berg, McGregor and Soro in midfield), but a 4-2-3-1 domestically (allowing me to get the best out of Rogic or Turnbull), which has seen me beat Genk home and away, plus comfortably beat Dundee and Ross County domestically. Kyogo, Giakoumakis and Jota have all started the season really brightly for me.

    Benfica in the CL Playoff Round next though, which will be tough.

    Anyone managed to pick up either a good box-to-box midfielder or a young initially third choice striker?

    This game any good? Not played the FM series since FM2010.

    Still occasionally dip into CM01/02 when bored.

    Lord knows man.

    Players defo don't seem to be rated as good as previous versions, for sure.

    Feels like the devs have basically attributed last season real life effort to all our players being * - and not just down to circumstances and a terrible manager.

    Finally got it to click a little bit, some how never got sacked.

    upload_2021-11-23_11-17-0.png

    19 games and only 1 win - I guess they at least made the Board realistic....


    upload_2021-11-23_11-17-40.png

    I say turned it around/clicked, we are still so * inconsistent and shipping goals nearly every game it seems.
    But I have at least went on a run of games unbeaten.

    upload_2021-11-23_11-18-32.png

    Reckon I can make 3rd place, but * knows what that will do for my job position.
    It is certainly an improvement on earlier in the season.

    upload_2021-11-23_11-19-28.png

    Unlikely to make the UCL spot, but should win the Scottish cup and have managed to reach the 2nd round of Conference, so some of the objectives have been met I guess.

    Yip, unrealistically *.

    So much so, I probably won't do a save with them again in this year's game.

    I actually don’t think so. A lot of the current squad’s “current ability” is nowhere near their potential, so it’s actually pretty good in that you can improve a lot of the players with the right training etc.

    I had a great first season and only signed three players I think.
