    i feel you! it's a b!tch.

    i got promoted with Port Vale into the Championship but now I don't have money or payroll, and my upgrades have been cancelled. All my good non-loanees have been sold. will be a dull few seasons until I can get some money for a promotion push.

    the only way I can keep my club from sinking into financial trouble is to keep finding youngsters, train them and sell them, sometimes within a single season.

    Mourinho's trying to unsettle my striker (Not the wonderkid) and has a scout at every game. Pogba went to the media and begged him to play with us, it was a lot like the Fabregas/Barca ordeal for us, and no sooner did that happen I was approached by my striker and asked to leave if Man United put a bid in.

    I am livid.

    Is it true that Brexit is in the game?

    It hasn't happened to me yet, but I believe you can turn it off.

    Yes it is.

    In-game, players of Football Manager 2017 will be alerted at some point between two and 10 years in that trade negotiations have begun, and a year later a news bulletin will detail the extent of Brexit. There are three main scenarios:

    1. Soft Brexit - free movement of workers remains.
    2. Footballers are granted the same special exemptions that are currently given to ‘entertainers’. This means it is easier for them to obtain work permits than other people, and it will not have a huge impact on player movement from the EU.
    3. Hard Brexit: similar rules to those which currently apply to non-EU players are adopted for all non-UK players.

    Urghh that would ruin the game. I play games to get away from reality!

    Ahh, I suffered something similar.

    I signed Joao Cancelo for Newcastle United and he had an absolute stormer for a season, after warming the bench for PSG. Lo and behold, Bayern come knocking. Scouts at every game, Lewandowski comes out and begs Cancelo to leave, next thing I know Cancelo hands in a transfer request.

    What I will say about FM 17, player management wise it's the most realistic one yet. Back in the day a player was unhappy, you keep him, maybe win a title and that's all she wrote. Now when the players want out, you've little to no chance of keeping them, particularly if you're a smaller club.

    Got close to £40M for Cancelo though so, it's not all doom and gloom.

    Ox is an absolute beast on FM15.

    Played him as a 'central winger' on my first ever save with Arsenal and he had great output.

    There was a period where my stock of attackers was depleted with both Sanchez and Welbeck out injured. I had the option of changing the formation and using Walcott but I thought no, for obvious reasons (Walcott is ****). Anyhow I played Ox as the Inside Forward for a few games and he was absolutely clutch, scoring a few crucial goals in some tight fixtures.

    I always say I'll let you go IF the bid matches our valuation.

    Sometimes the bid comes, sometimes it doesn't, when it does I reject it and if the player has a cry I say it didn't match our valuation, if he accepts that, great, if not it gets pretty ugly as his morale collapses and other players get involved.

    I just ignore it and wait for the storm to pass.

    So I finally got notified of a brexit scenario. I got the middle ground brexit, not so hard to get work permits, but they're still required. Which of course is better than the hard brexit which makes it so it's almost impossible to sign eu prospects.

    The league was going well, I was in the top 4 until christmas, then my form plummeted and I dropped to 7th place. My star striker Britt Assombalonga didn't leave in the transfer window, but international duty called and I'm now left without my main man. It's now up to my italian wonderkid to prove his doubters wrong and take his first step into becoming the world class forward I see him as.

    The transfer window failed to see any new faces, I was trying to sign Patrick Bamford (who declared for Ireland, lol) but Huddersfield just didn't want to let go of him.

    I got to the League Cup final against Tottenham. This is a must win for obvious reasons. A cup win and Europe was my goal at the start of the season, hoping it works out.

    This is definitely the most unrealistic FM I've played. I have nothing but winning streaks and losing streaks, on different saves with different teams. I feel like the streaks are are hard coded into the game

    I heard the FM 18 will be 7GB so I'm expecting major changes

    That sounds like 3D engine changes, more animations and better textures etc

    The 7GB is the new recommended disk space.
