      Football Manager 2015

      Beta time!

      Well the game which kills my social life is almost ready for another year of bugs, glitches and of course deadly accurate coach reports. :laugh:



      I'm liking the new scouting system so far.

      Worth taking a look at this before starting a save.

      Not sure about this "managerial style" thing, attribute points for your abilities and all that. Don't get what difference it actually makes in the game but I'd love to be surprised.

      I think scout reports are much better - making the game more difficult I'd say, but more realistic. I like this thing about attribute ranges, not knowing for sure unless you really scout that player extensively.

      Just a quick question, what is the transfer budget with Liverpool at the beginning? In previous years (apart from 2014) Liverpool got a shocking budget of like 2-3m.

      15m

      Definitely my favourite change. I really like that it's so easy to only see scouted players as I'm one of  these people who feel like pressing a button and having 30,000 players appear in a list that haven't been scouted at all to be "cheaty"

      Going abroad for 3 months soon, considering getting this to accompany me, but I haven't bought a FM game since 12. Played 13 briefly and thought it was yet another step back from the pinnacle of the series, which was FM10 and 11 imo.

      Anyone who's played the beta able to give me any opinions?

      My transfers with LFC so far. And no, you haven't seen it wrong, I did trade Henderson for Ramsey, Wilshere and Campbell.

      Arsenal offered me some money for him but instead I made this crazy counter offer which they readily accepted. Very unrealistic I have to say.

      They tried to get Hendo off me too but didn't wanna agree to my 40 million and 1 pound offer.

      I have the game but i'm waiting for some patches to fix some problems with the match engine and some other things before i'll start my long save ...

      Far too many goals scored from crosses and corners :) They will fix this soon. Also some strange transfers, one example posted above.

      The gameplay is very annoying but a few good added features in. Layout takes some time to get used to but worth it.

      Out of the Carling Cup, but top of my CL group with Juventus, Atletico Madrid and Anderlecht after 3 game and second in the league after 9 games.

      Bought Gio Dos Santos and Memphis Depay. Sold Borini, Toure and Johnson.

      Goalkeepers are f**king painful! And i keep conceding some ridiculously unfortunate goals.

      I go to sign Valdes for free and he wants 125k and walks away when i don't offer more than 100k. Then less than a week later signs for Nantes for 44k.

      I go to sign Ricardo Rodriguez and they want 35m but then he gets unhappy they reject my bids. I go back in for 25m and they reject. One week later they accept 8.5m bids from PSG and another team and he signs for them.

      Kids worth 100k i bid 1m for and their club wants 25m for a 16 year old defender in the youth team and won't budge. So many more scenarios like that.

      So crap.

      And attacking central midfielders do nothing. Only wingers. And when players dribble they run straight in to defenders.

      Guaranteed to have 65% possession and 20+ shots and rarely score twice, if at all. They get one chance and score.

      Same old sh*t then by the sounds of it. I remember on 2014 when about 12 shots each game would hit the cross bar, out swinging corners would also find themselves hitting the front of the cross bar which is ridiculous.

      I would say you are managing Liverpool. Our manager has the same issue ;).



      For me the game is so good when we doesn't go against match engine. If you instructed your GK to pass it short and pass to a CD/FB, after few games AI will figure it out and will press the defense when you GK in possession and you will concede cheap goals. Its happening in real life with Mignolet, so why not in a game ;).

      I would say sign a GK with top composure,anticipation and concentration if you are instructing him to keep the ball. Other wise boot it long  :D.

      Transfer programs are annoying, i agree. However they have improved from last one. Like clubs will not accept 0m upfront and 30m in 48 months anymore  :). Always offer some ridiculous clauses to the offer. Like 10m after 50 goals to a DM/CM, or 20m after an international appearance to a German player(German bug ;D)

      The game is so enjoyable when you care more about tactics rather than transfers.  Like i was conceding some goals through long passes from small clubs. When i analyzed the goals, found that the CD is charging to win the ball because he was in stopper role, but the covering defender is not usually close to him and opposition are winning the second ball easily. I changed my DM from registra to Half back, now he is dropping back when defender push ahead to win the long ball.

      Liverpool are too good in this. Which makes it so boring.

      I started a save with Fulham. Wanted a balanced CM, Signed one Vicente from Spain for 500k, what a beast. Their attack is pretty good with Roberts as a future star. CM is a position you need immediate upgrade.
      Signed Dele Alli in Jan window and he scored about 8-9 goals from there. Got promoted and had about 15m to spend. Signed one good striker from Ajax and Horne for GK position. Picked up Pearce on free transfer,and Will Hughes for 9m.

      12-15th finish was the target, created a counter 4-1-4-1 high press tactic. The lucky break was getting Dealufu on loan. He score 11 goals and assisted 9. Beat Arsenal 4-0, got a draw at chelsea. Liverpool finished 2nd, Chelsea won the league, United 3rd and me 4th.

      The table was funny, first Liverpool coming 2nd, of all the saves i had, BR got sacked in his first season, this is the first time i saw him doing well in the game :). City finished 8th  :laugh:.

      Only team i didn't had an answer was United. Their diamond with Two strikers and one AM over ran my defense on both home and away games.

      To anybody with a Liverpool save after a couple of seasons, how well have the likes of Ojo, Canos, Chirivella, Sinclair and Wilson developed? On FM14 the first 4 became quality on my Liverpool save. Hoping they develop to the same quality this year.

      In my Fulham save, only Rossister developed well. Infact he is one of the CM in the game.

      Rossiter develops really well especially after i got Gil Romero tutoring him after a couple loan spells. He's rotated with Ruben Neves for me in the DM position or if i want to play tighter. England first team and all round boss statistics.

      Wilson looked so promising but nothing came of him.

      Ojo is crap.

      Sinclair crap.

      Canos crap.

      Chirivella crap.
