  1. I want to manage a virtual football team on an online game. I didn't realise I'd need an advanced maths certificate just to work out how to keep my players happy. Fine, hogging needs to be dealt with, but having to work out, in advance, how many games each player needs to play just to keep them free of concerns is utter shullbit. Do we really think Mourinho/Guardiola/van gaal sit down in July with a list of all their players and a fixture calendar and count it all out? Where the hell has all the fun gone in this game? It used to be amazing with the anticipation of risers, and trying to outsmart people tactically. Now you never know if anyone will rise, let alone when, and tactics are out the window with a higher rated team winning everything - as long as you can keep them all happy! ARGH!!!

  2. I hate Chelsea more than anyone. Clubs like them and City are everything that's wrong with football. But Top 4 doesn't mean anything more than a few decent nights and a bit of extra money. Trophies is what you want. It was there for Spurs this year.

  4. TOTTENHAM: TULLIOINTER93 NUOVO ALLENATORE! Ecco le prime parole del mister appena atterrato all'aereoporto: "Sono molto contento di essere qui in questa fantastica città e sopratutto ringrazio Franklin per l'assegnazione, era una delle mie prime preferenze...sarà una stagione dura, dovremo lottare molto, dobbiamo salvarci perché la prossima stagione IO voglio rimanere ancora qui...Domani incontreró i giocatori ma i tifosi possono star tranquilli perche sicuramente i pezzi pregiati non verranno ceduti...ora scusate devo andare!"

  5. I would prefer to give 35M euros for Sanches than 45M for João Mário. In my opinion any of the sums are ridiculous, but again, Man Utd set the standard last year with the astronomical fee given for Martial. Anyway, Sanches and Hummels sign for Munich, they seem to be the big red team atm.

  6. Maybe maybe not doubt it but not to worry he'll get a plus 1 for debut plus 2 when he shaves his head and will be 89 in 3 months and who knows he might actually play well and be D.Costa rated in 6 months.

  7. After all the time away from here, I just had to come back on a day with transfer news like these. Is Raz still touring this part of the Internet? Read the last couple of pages of this thread. Nothing has changed really. Bitter result for United tonight.

  8. The Help has been updated re the Lack of Games concern and is in black and white for all to see: In a typical Game World, with 38 league games, a player evaluates their season at regular intervals. This usually occurs around Turns 12, 24 and 36. At each interval a player will have a 'target' number of games that they will have expected to play. Every game that a player could lose fitness in, counts towards their target. Within your squad each player's target is worked out below: Your 5 highest rated players and those rated 94 or higher expect to play in approximately 80% of the number of Turns; Players rated 92 or higher expect to play in approximately 75% of the number of Turns; Players that would expect to be in your first choice line-up and those rated 90 or higher will expect to play in approximately 65% of the number of Turns; Players that would expect to be a substitute if you selected your first choice line-up and those rated 89 or higher will expect to play in approximately 30-40% of the number of Turns. The rest of the players within your squad will only expect to play a few (if any) of the number of Turns. Goalkeepers are worked out slightly differently, with your highest rated and those 88 or higher expecting to play in approximately 90% of the number of Turns. Please note that with regards to substitutions, if a player comes on as a substitute then it will count as half an appearance irrespective of what minute they entered the match. For example, in a league with 38 games (38 Turns) a 94 rated or higher player expects to play in 31 games were they lose fitness. This could be 25 league starts, 8 substitute appearances and 2 cup games. Alternatively 31 league starts (missing 1 in every 6 league games) and no cup games. In an English Championship for example, there are 38 Turns and therefore a 95 rated player would expect to play in 31 games were they lose fitness. You don't lose any fitness in SMFA games in non-Gold Game Worlds. Sometimes you play more than one game per Turn if you have a domestic cup game. So players aren't expected to play in both and if they do then it's like a bonus game. Concerns are very manageable if you have a sensible well balanced squad and don't hog players. I've recently blogged about this and you can read my thoughts on squad management here. I can't comment on the majority of posts within this thread as insufficient information has been posted. However, where examples have been given, the concerns look fully justified. This is also the same for the bug tickets that have been flagged for my attention. Il'l give you an example of one that I looked at this morning as they were reporting that a 90 rated AM©,F(RLC) 22-year-old had developed a L5 Lack of Games concern and that they wanted this removing. I looked into this in more detail. This Game World has just moved into a new season and currently on Turn 1. Last season the aforementioned player played a grand total of zero games. In fact this player has never played for his team since he was signed. A 90 rated player expects to play in 65% of the number of Turns. Is anyone else surprised that this player eventually handed in a transfer request? Obviously this manager will miss this player because he'll struggle with the alternatives in a 99 AM(RL),F(RLC), 99 AM,F(RLC), 96 AM,F(RLC), 95 AM©,F(RLC), 94 F(RLC), 94 AM,F(RLC), 94 AM,F(RLC), 94 AM,F(RLC), 92 AM(RLC),F(RL), 91 AM(RLC),F(RL), 90 F©, 90 AM(L),F(LC) and 90 AM(RLC),F(RL). I'll stop there with their attacking options as you get the general idea. This isn't the exception but is the norm from those that have submitted bug tickets. In a nutshell they all have what i'd call a "Super Squad" and are player hogging. If anyone believes that their players have wrongly got a concern then you will need to raise a Bug ticket which can be done via Help. If you do post within this thread or the Help section, then it'd help if you posted your squad with the relevant stats. This is because others may be able to offer advice on were you are going wrong with managing your squad.

  9. Wow, Tony, Allan & Infernito all posting, crazy. I've never understood the whole Depay doesn't like LVG philosophy thing - it's the main reason he was purchased, maybe it's a case of the fact he is just overrated?

  11. hmm yes but I'm thinking what sort of instructions should I use? I was thinking a sort of counter-attacking set up, defending deep and then releasing Reus/Aubameyang/De Bruyne on the break? What instructions could implement this strategy?
