    Yeah i do have the box version and it still works actually. For some reason I have misplaced all three games from 2002-3 (cm4) to fm5. And I cannot even find them online.

    As for the micromanaging, I already assign first thing everything to staff.
    From friendly games (who cares?), staff contracts (initially because I forgot to check on that some times and lost crucial staff more often than not), anything to do with youth players and sometimes just for the fun of it I have my DoF inutiate transfers but I end up cancelling 99% of them.

    We have scout recommendations, why can't they add a DoF interacting better. You telling him what player type you want and he comes up with a small list based on scout reports or something.

    I'd appreciate if you could link me with the facepack. Not a big fan of those but I wasn't a fan of club logo packs until the mid 2010s and now I cannot click continue if I don't have the logo pack running

    I also don't like regens. Mostly because they are completely off.
    Too many of them have extremely high PA, they are always picked by top teams when they are 16 and reach their potential by their 20th birthday.

    I have set a foreigner limit to 5 that is set over the first few seasons just to mitigate the crazy stacking of top teams. Buying players for 40m and then sending them to reserves or not even using them as a bench option. Sometimes it's all mad. My db improves parity by a lot, but it takes 4-5 years to notice the effects.

    Brehme i've heard the same story from SI year after year trying pitch the new versions with shitty results usually but trust me this year they have delivered.

    The game is very fast ,loading screens is seemless even with multiple leagues and huge db enabled , there is a quite interesting & surprisingly helpful recruitment team meeting where unlike the scouting meeting where you get random suggestions for different players , here there are proper analysis done (they are suggesting me to look for replacements for LWB position since there is interest around Gosens) and most importantly the match engine is much much better than any previous release.

    Watching the gameplay is actually enjoyable , for the 1st time i am using a tactic which focuses play in the middle and the players are actually doing 1-2 combinations in the middle instead of just going to the wing in a 352 formation. There are fewer clear chances but much higher scoring rate for good strikers , probably even a little too much . Overall from the few matches i've played seems worth the money tbh

    Thanks. Now I remember why I didn't go for it. It was 17 GB

    Will get to add this soon, have a new laptop now so performance shouldn't be bothered.

    Gave a look at the new ME, it looks much smoother. Not sure about problems like lobs to one-on-one or something, I read there's too many corners and they also lead to nowhere but those are miniscule issues.

    If they have a much smoother editing function I'll go for it soon, otherwise I'm standing firm on my decision.

    I feel we can convince you to get on the hype!

    You're welcome, I downloaded my segment by segment from the start so it's not to bad, plus I use a customised pc (I love pcs) so storage isn't a problem for me.

    I had to share Espositos last season.. What a boss, already took over Meazza as top scorer (he is soon to be 27).
    65 goals in all competitions, 52 in Serie A, 19 times MoM. Granted, he did score 16 pens

    Nice Pajo!


    Did you upgrade the stadium or already build a new one? I'm curious if this is possible and if you built a new stadium are you the only team playing there and are you the owner?

    Him, Bastoni, Barella, Sensi... All are bosses. I also got few great players from the academy who are starters now:

    - Carlos Antonio, backup RWB, but will become a starter in the next 2 years.
    carlos antooni.jpg

    - Stefano Nicoletti, starting CB along with Bastoni.
    nicoletti.jpg

    - Simone Nocelli, rotating with Tonali as DM, but is starting more while Tonali is either benched or moved to CM.

    - Zlatko Kamcev, new guy, this is his second season, playing him as much as i can, progressing really well.
    kamcev.jpg

    - Patric Larsen, backup CF when after Esposito and the other CF who i bought.

    All of these guys came from Primavera...

    Not yet. I tried but management still hasnt decided to grant me that wish. I did improve training and youth facilities tho, both are state of the art level. Also dont forget to ask for more money few times a year, its helpful.

    Mate you are absolutely smashing it! I've not played much due to AC Valhalla but I've tested the waters. Your Esposito stats are insane! I assume you're enjoying the new game? Anything you can say you like about it and dislike about it compared to 2020.

    I've started a new game with FM21 after I first tried the Beta version. Can't wait to conquer Europe this weekend with my Inter save.

    I'm going to try and copy you and get Esposito to overtake Meazza as topscorer, good job by you!

    Nah, still doing the 2020 one. Won't be downloading 2021 any time soon. Yeah, i've had luck with primavera players Nocelli and Nicoletti came the same year, played together in u20 right away for 2 seasons. I loaned Nocelli one season after that, Nicoletti stayed as backup CB and third choice RB and LB. now both starters, and both have Inter as fav club as Supporters, not players.

    I've just ordered a mystery box at a site called mystery shirt UK.

    You ordered this package and you get the following stuff:

    What you get:

    A box delivered to your door containing 1 x brand new random football shirt from any team around the world with tags
    2 x random soccerstarz collectable figures (worth £7.98)
    A card with facts about the club of your new shirt
    An option at checkout to pick teams to avoid (comments/notes section)
    All of our shirts are authentic and official - absolutely no fakes.

    Golden Ticket - A small percentage of our mystery shirt boxes contain a current season shirt which retails at far more than you pay for it. Will you be one of the lucky ones?

    I'm going to use this for my next FM21 game, you get a random shirt and start your next game with that specific club. In total it was 48 pounds so worth the risk, does anyone have experience with this?

    You could have just asked here, for no extra fees, which team would be nice to start a save with

    Fingers crossed you get a Juventus, or a Feyenoord shirt

    Finally got the shirt after a delay of 4 weeks due to PostNL. Got a shirt of Hearts with the adidas tag attached to it so it is genuinely. Together with 2 little figures: Luiz Gustavo from Brazil and Ginter from Germany.

    Never played a save in Scotland so this will be my first attempt. Didn't realised they were relegated so curious to see if I can get them back quickly and challenge Celtic and Rangers.
