>Can you post X player pls?
Yes but search this thread and the previous ones please, nobody wants to see some meme player for the 100th time today.
God only knows. But expecting it any time before end of November is very unrealistic and that's probably the earliest it might come. Just buy it.
Or just use an Indonesian VPN to buy it for 27 bucks. RIP Steam account though.

Ive over 30 registered players right now, 25 is supposed to be the max. I can do this whenver I want to in the national league and have been able to since i discovered it in at least fm13
Heres a screenshot, its awesome if you have too many foreigners.
Every month or so your club tells you to reregister your squad, just clear selection click auto select and do the same shit come match day.
>tfw will never be allowed to forget my pompy spell
>having that many players

>implying it's ever stopped
this has been played on repeat for hours upon hours upon hours upon hours when placed in a small enclosure (think closet sized cage/box/etc.) with little food and water, all whilst being kept awake, during training for this special school for when soldiers become lost/trapped by the enemy. another portion of this same school forces you to decide whether or not you want a toe or finger intentionally being broken before being released with minimal supplies in a random place in the vast training area and having to navigate your way to safety...all while evading the instructors whose only job is to find and "capture" you.
In FM it doesn't matter, would be fun though
Poland is relatively less eastern europe tier dangerous than some other slav countries but some places are bretty bad
I could show you my FM14 save where i do this, thats much more organized, this squad is in the middle of a transition period and im waiting off a load of contracts/trying to sell players.
Also, for anyone wanting a cool club with a bunch of history down the leagues I recommend Lyn (pic related).
Norwegian side with several wins in both the cup and the league, one of two major professional football clubs in the capitol. After doing quite well in the noughties (they tried signing Zlatan at one point) their company running their professional team got disbanded due to fiscal mismanagement in 2010.
The overall club structure that dealt with youth teams and the other sports remained and they had an amateur team in the sixth tier, they decided to try and get the amateur team into the professional leagues.
In 2015 its their second year in the third tier and the lowest playable league in norway. Theyve got access to a big stadium for norwegian standards, have a decent squad and in real life, they got relegated due to a terrible coach and the worst start ive ever heard of. They took a measly one point in the first half of the season, sacked the coach and would have won the league if only the second half counted, but they ended up relegated on goal difference after winning their last match 9-2.
although, I have no idea how it is 15, unless it also takes country economic factor/development index into account.
Because where I live is an 8, and the scariest I'd have to worry about is someone attempting to sell me some weed.
>got PSG in CL again, this time in the semis
Time to get revenge, you fucking frog eating cunts
Why won't you just accept the fact that you should, in fact, lurk more and post less
If you want a hugbox where you can police what is posted you should go to tumblr, or create a reddit-sub. Telling people to lurk more on an anon web-board is retarded.

I have nothing to say at this time
No but seriously, the lower the wage the lower the treshold to fire you.
Job Security - if you have a big contract they are less willing to fire you.
I am going to do one of the "Hero" rewards. Taking a bottom feeder to the top. - Base FM15 database.

Also, can anyone recommend me a French side to manage?
yeah, it's becoming more and more popular here. Lot of fun. Threw back several gin and tonics and won a 50 dollar gift card for next week.
Paris FC huh?
Also, I have a question - what are good tactics for people who aren't very good at tactics. I'm pretty good at all other aspects of the game (good enough to get Wolverhampton up in one season and keep them there for another) but my tactics lack.
>Shots 9-5 against RM
>Shots 13-6 against BM in first game
>Shots 11-9 against BM in second game, got denied a penalty in 90th minute, BM got a penalty in 92nd and won the game there
33 wins in 33 League games, really fucking shitty CL tho..
If only this game had mattered. Lost games that I should win and won a game that I should never win.
>tfw choke away the title in the last 2 games (Cittadella won the title after they came from behind with 2 goals in the last 10 minutes to steal the title)
>tfw choke away the Italian Serie C cup after winning the first leg 3-1
Now I need to endure a tense playoff schedule
Played Renate in the Quarter Final because of seeding (won 4-0)
Got Benevento in the Semis (lost first leg 2-0 away from home). Need to make my home advantage count.
Grossetto and Juve Stabia are the other teams still in the playoffs
Good luck man!

Every time I went into a meeting to try and gee up my lads for the promotion team meeting they all responded badly
Your expectations were set at avoiding relegation, and so, you only need one point to guarantee that. Usually, the board offer you a chance to change expectations if you are performing well.
I won the league 11 times in a row and the expectations were set to winning the league again
I think Dejan Stanković got used to Inter being so low in the league that he forgot he's in a club that actually wins something right now
fucking serb assman, never again
In 16 I'll play some weaker team in a weaker league so it'll be a bit harder, still haven't picked a club though
Another interesting summer ahead of me I think
>tfw he has no interest in joining on loan or permanently
>tfw my best loanees from last season aren't interested either and their clubs want to use them in first team football, which I assume means they want to give them like 7- minutes collectively over the whole season

I'm just making profit for the owners m8, couldn't care less about winning anything.
>tfw just want to go to bed and die

That's a lot better than what happened to him in 15 I guess

Nothing spectacular. I was kind of reluctant to sell him seeing as he was home grown but I couldn't refuse 100m. He was splitting time on the LW with Felipe Anderson but Anderson's always been 1st choice.

bretty comfy. how's your day lads?
You've never had a scotch egg? Despite the name, I thought they were known throughout the world - not just Scotland.
Anyway they are a soft- or hard- boiled egg covered in sausage meat, covered in breadcrumbs and deep fried. Fucking delicious.
I think I have a big amount of shots, but not sure

>Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has banished Andros Townsend from the first team after the winger clashed with a club fitness coach.

>"He did not train with the group. He is not available to be selected tomorrow, he is not in the squad," Pochettino said.
>"It's because of Monday. When you behave in the wrong way you always need to pay. It's always my decision when he is available again to be part of the squad."
Townsend btfo. Pretty impressive how his career is fading into nothing from being fairly highly rated a couple of years ago.
the alternative being calling up 90% of your nt from one club and literally copy/pasting their tactics.

Some things never change
they didn't look that bad with a proper face pack.
that's a great description
take a look at these beauties from my yoof academy
whoever at SI looked at the new face generation and thought "yeah that's great" needs a slap desu
I'm not sure if that happens in 15 but previous FMs had some face changes when regens were happier or sadder, I don't see it that much in 15 though
THE HERO OF KVATCH
Bottom right looks exactly like Walker
Does he not work on shooting in training, I wonder. I mean, he's cutting in from the right to shoot every time he playes, but his shooting is as ridiculously bad now as it was two years ago.
I must say that I really like OOTP facegen for the change in emotions. And also the one click generation of this.
>go down 1-0 in first half
>after five minutes of second half, keeper sits over ball, unable to take freekick

and then there's Kenya, the giant fast black man.
eternal reminder that Kenya thought he was suffering from burnout shortly after spring training.
and was the semi and final MVPs.
and #1 of stolen bases.

Pls don't die
MLB has two leagues (American and National)
boreball starts with a 162 game "regular season" where you play everyone from both leagues.
the leagues are cut up into smaller regions (ie: West, Central, East).
The teams with the best records automatically qualify for the post season.
The two teams with the best record in the league that didn't win their region also qualify.
The semi-final there is the 7 game League Championship series. So Kenya Bro was named the most important player in that series, and also in the grand final.
Basically, super clutch at the end of the season.
Boreball is also probably the most autistic of sports not called cricket, so if you need anything else explained that aren't simply stats I will.
>playing arsenal away for the capital one cup
>field a super weak filled with my u18 players team because i don't even think we'll get a shot on goal
Wenger salty as fuck
>the boroughs of Teesside and Wearside in charge of being competent at footy
m8 that's not even close to autistic as baseball gets.
>average "9 inning" game length - 2 hours and 52 minutes
>games frequently go beyond that due to ties at the end of 9
see pic related
>there is a clear and distinct difference between "at bats" and "plate appearances"
>getting on base can actually lower your batting average in some pretty common instances
also look at how some of these stats are calculated
hardcore baseball fans literally most autistic of anyone.
>Swansea City are close to reaching agreement with striker Michu to terminate the Spaniard's contract, according to Wales Online.
Never seen a career disappear so quickly without some really bad injury involved
we haven't hated commies since the 50s mate.
Also it's mostly because baseball has been around for like 150 years in basically it's current form.
back then, it was
>They have red shirts
>They're the "Reds"
the only mlb teams are "reds" and "red sox"
everyone else has a different name.
>always good but never wins
Boston Red Sox, mostly because their direct competition for a playoff berth is the most winning team in history (the Yankees)
Pittsburgh Pirates and Los Angeles Dodgers also fit here.
Hard to equate to baseball since we only compare regions despite playing everyone (ie: 1st place is shared by 6 teams until playoffs start)
>good like 10 years ago
New York Yankees, Detroit Tigers, New York Mets, Minnesota Twins
>develops youth players
Hard to say, since most of our youth development is done in high school/college
>lots of history
I'll post the oldest teams, although with the exception of the newest 4 teams (Diamondbacks, Rays, Rockies, Marlins) they all have a decent amount of history.
1876 -- Atlanta Braves (as Boston Red Caps), Chicago Cubs (as Chicago White Stockings)
1882 -- Cincinnati Reds (as Cincinnati Red Stockings), Pittsburgh Pirates (as Pittsburgh Alleghenys), St. Louis Cardinals (as St. Louis Brown Stockings)
1883-- Philadelphia Phillies (as Philadelphia Quakers), San Francisco Giants (as New York Gothams)
1884 -- Los Angeles Dodgers (as Brooklyn Atlantics)
1901 -- Baltimore Orioles (as Milwaukee Brewers), Boston Red Sox (as Boston Americans), Chicago White Sox, Cleveland Indians (as Cleveland Blues), Detroit Tigers, Minnesota Twins (as Washington Senators), New York Yankees (as Baltimore Orioles), Oakland Athletics (as Philadelphia Athletics)
Also, pic related are their World Series titles.
they moved their stadium in the 60s from Los Angeles to Anaheim (a distance of less than 15 miles).
Kinda like the difference between Manhattan and Newark.
London Footballers of Kensington.
unless you're saying that LA and Anaheim aren't different cities, which is like saying Queens and Harlem are the same. Sure, they're in the exact same urban area, but the cultural climate is very different.
just draw my shit up senpai
Drew a ton of games while totally outplaying the opposition. My only loss was the last game of the season too.
Why is the transfer window in the Norwegian league so fucking long? I'm managing Valerenga since Norwegian anon recommended it, but I've played like 10 friendlies and I'm still a month away from the league's start
London is really the only place here where that would work, pretty much every other place you can go 20 miles down the road and find people with completely different accents
No, I'm implying you have never looked at a map of LA.
>Blackpool and Preston
>Two clearly distinct urban areas
>Los Angeles and Anaheim
>without labels you'd have no idea where one stopped and the other began
Here you can go 20 miles down the road and be at your local bank. I'm suggesting the anon doesn't have a fucking clue about the scope of the US if he thinks Anaheim/Long Beach/LA/Burbank/Malibu isn't one city.
Greater Los Angeles.
The Angels moved from central LA to the district of Anaheim, so they're the Los Angeles Angels (of Anaheim), as opposed to the LA Dodgers, who are still in central LA.
this is true, southern california is fucking disgusting in general.
The board really came through on this one
>Hard to equate to baseball since we only compare regions despite playing everyone (ie: 1st place is shared by 6 teams until playoffs start)
To compare it to soccer - think of it as we have small regional leagues, and the champions and a few select other teams play in a championship cup.
Part of the reason is the US is so big.
>think of it as we have small regional leagues, and the champions and a few select other teams play in a championship cup.
but it's weirder than that since you play everyone at your level in the country, not just your region.
Nope, not me. If I had a ban for that I wouldn't be able to get unbanned
>Christ American cities are fucking ugly
what's up boss I heard you liked urban sprawl
>not having any water
It's amusing how from space you can basically see the California state line, at least for the norther 2/3rds.
Well, it's a 16 team league, so 30 games a year vs. 38 games a year should equal to two months shorter seasons.
Also it's cold here in the winter, especially considering we have teams as far north as Tromso.
Why not just update your iphone to the latest OS?
Through the medium of dance
True, but you play your league the most and winning your league (division) is what get you in the playoffs, (outside of wildcards
19 games × 4 opponents in-division (76 games),
6 or 7 x 10 interdivision games within-league (66 games),
20 inter-league games
American football is more easy to understand since they don't play as many games.
home and home within your division
play two other divisions for the most part completely,
then 2 that determed by a odd formula.
Thus a 7-8-1 team made the playoffs last year. Since they won the division.
