Sounds like a cracking game to buy with Covid.

I've never heard of it, seems like a really cool concept but also a concept that would get old very soon, same cards, same upgrades.. you for sure would need some sort of update/dlc in the form of a new deck of cards sent/new teams etc (which might be what they are thinking).

Also I have no friends and my wife is shit at board games, so it would not be for me.

Totally agree with you though, it for sure looks interesting, if I was younger or at uni I'd probably go for it.
We're in lockdown again in Holland. Everything is closed after 17:00 (even football training etc). So I have time to play it, I'm going to search for a little bit information but I'm tempted to buy it.

I'm in the middle of my 3rd season with Wolfsburg and holy shit I've never had a save feel like I haven't made any progress like that before. Probably going to give up on it, this is way harder than I expected for a club like this. Just complete stagnation no matter what I do.

Whats the problem with the save? There is always something you can do, tactics are crucial for "lesser" teams take a look into it and good luck, feel free to share some uploads of tactics etc I/we can take a look for you.

Technology man, nothing surprises me and you're no a retard brother things are only easy if you know. You're smart, why? Because you asked for help.

Enjoy the new laptop!

God damn you're sound. Anyways I've been playing the new Demo and I'm approaching Christmas and I like it so far. Especially the fact that if a player is running to keep a ball in play they don't just bounce the ball out of play.

Not sure where to ask this but here feels the most adequate. What's the fastest way of becoming a scout at top level clubs. I'm doing my badges now and tbh I don't think I have the patience to start all the way from the bottom lol. Appreciate your help

Just started my 3th season with Inter. After my second season I've sold Lautaro to Bayern for 110M (they sold Lewandowski to Real) and got Vlahovic for 30M + 40M installments and ffs this guy is on fire. In his first season at Inter he scored 40 goals (and missing 4 penalties). Now he is already at 8 after 5 games, this guy is the real f*ckin deal. With Esposito and Scamacca behind him I'm good because I play with only 1 striker. Sanchez and Handanovic just retired so they are coaches in my U18 team.

Most people will already now this but Talles Magno is crazy in my save. Even has a starting spot in the Brazil National team alongside Antony which I also bought. Yeremy Pino is a real steal from Villarreal, he has a 30M clause in his contract. A no-brainer for me. Di Marco is amazing as attacking full-back.

Ranocchia left for Ajax who also bought Fabian Ruiz from Napoli. :yao: Dybala left Jube for Liverpool when his contract expired. Italy won the WC in Qatar with Immobile ending up top scorer with 7 goals. After that Mancini resigned and now Allegri is coach. I really like the random features in long saves. Newcastle just splashed 280M on new players after finishing 8th. Cristiano Ronaldo is still banging in goals for fun in his 3th season for United. Chelsea ended on the 7th position with Lukaku scoring 9 goals in the Premier League.



Next target for me is getting Hakimi back so I can sell Mazraoui.

Formation is now:

Onana

Mazraoui Skriniar Bastoni Di Marco

Barella Milinkovic-Savic

Hakan

Yeremy Pino Vlahovic Talles Magno


Aim is to win the Serie A 10 years in a row which seems easy because the other clubs are declining and losing a lot of points over the season.

Barella fucked me off with his minimum fee release clause to go to PSG - no matter what I did he wouldnt let me remove it.

Atalanta won the league in my first season, then I've won it for 6 years in a row before Milan won it by like 4 points.


Abraham signed for me for 82m in 2023/2024, and he scored in his first season 48 in 48+4, 38 in 46+2, 47 in 51, 32 in 51+4, 45 in 53+1, 30 in 45+3

Brella quit Inter in 2022-2023 for 76m (fucking release clause)

I signed Gavi in 2022-2023 for 38m, it took a couple years to develop but he's stariting to really grow into his own.

Nice man, everything in your post is so true, Vlahovic is a monster, I could not keep hold off him as PSG kept bidding and he wanted to leave no ends, Magno is also a beast, quality player. I always sign Onana as well! I never use Hakan in my saves, I always sell him to Man Utd, I do not use an AMC and only 2 midfielders centrally and its hard to keep all players happy.

After the release of the game, Dimarco went down in skill/rating in my game, it was quite strange. I managed to buy him very cheaply in my "Inter Greggs" save.

I also got Hakimi in my Inter save and Inter Greggs save, just love the guy, he aint to hard to buy, I skipped the January window and banked the money and went all in on him for the summer.

Sounds like you are really enjoying the game brother, thats awesome!

I really dislike the fact as you both say that there are a lot of players who wants out of Inter as soon as PSG, Real etc are knocking at the door. I had the same issue with Barella, Bastoni, Lautaro, Brozovic and Skriniar. Normally I try to hold on to them and just hope the interest dying out soon. Lautaro wanted out even after we won the CL. The other I could hold on but only with big contracts. I really dislike this, of course I'm not objective but if Inter won the Scudetto and CL and you get good money why in the hell would you want to leave for any other club? They can all f*ck off.

Normally I would sell Hakan but with his set pieces skills he is deadly for me. The only problem I'm facing now is that I have quit a few players who are on a 1M-per month contract and I don't want to give them more. So eventually they will force them self out I fear because the money PSG and the English clubs are getting is ridiculous.

Aim is to get a lot of youth players in the starting 11 but I'm struggling with this because most youth players who are coming through aren't good enough in the long run. And I'm getting fucked by the city counsel. 3 Times we could expand the stadium and all 3 times the city counsel doesn't give a permit to expand. But the board doesn't want to build a new stadium so I'm fucked for now. Anyone had this experience with Inter?

tbh thats normal in FM forsome reason. Even after like 5 CL wins in 10 seasons and winning the league every year, I'll still have players who refuse to sign a new contract to want to go to RM/City. And that's not because of pay either - I've got guys on like £600k a week...


Sounds like a very typical Inter expeirence

This is why you need to heavily use the editor before starting your saves.
