Football Manager 16 New Features

Recommended Posts

Thinking of starting a new save that I'd make a youtube series out of. Been inspired by a couple ones I watch on yt.

 

Thinking Paris fc in the French third division.

Haha I can't fit all mine into one screenshot, I have 47 players out on loan at the minute.

 

It's just the style of play I have in football manager. I'm a youth scrounger. I forage the regen dates & bring in as much talent as possible & then sell it on for a big fee & usually a sell on clause a few years later.

 

The home nation talent I tend to keep for myself :D Italians in this save.

 

I do the same. I never buy anyone over the age of 18/19 unless it's the first few seasons and I have absolutely no other choice.

 

I don't let players go out on loan until they're 20 though. I prefer to develop in house, give them some first team football elsewhere to raise their value then sell on once they're 22 ish.

 

The way I do it changes. 

 

Usually I keep them in house till 18, then send them out and about to clubs where they'll play & the quality is decent enough.

 

However recently I've been seeing how it goes if I let them go at 17 too, if they play. I'm curious if there's much of a difference between keeping them in house with my youth facilities & under 18s football and sending them out to lesser facilities but constant 1st team games in leagues like the Dutch, Portuguese & Belgian leagues.

 

I much prefer having them at my club with the best facilities and coaches in the game developin them and the best of the bunch also get access to some of the best players tutoring them. I also send them on English courses etc. and just being at my club, the most high profile club in the game, raises their reputation in the game and increases the potential for greater financial returns in the future. Yes they're not getting any first team football (bar the best maybe getting a slot on the bench if I have a serious injury crisis) overall I think the pros outway the con.

 

Once they hit 20 (there or thereabouts), I offer them out on loan but only to clubs willing to make them a valuable first team player. Two seasons or so of that generally puts them in a fantastic position value wise.

 

I normally sign 17/18 year olds on 6-8 year contracts (using the optional contract extension by club option along with a 3-5, depending on what I'm allowed to offer, year initial contract length. This means that they still have at least two years on their contract when I want to start offering them out, no value depreciation!

 

The only problem I'm having now really is that in starting to sign too many youth players and my u21/18s are getting fairly huge! Only 11 players can play in each team after all...

 

At the point where my u21 team, if I didn't loan out the best of them, would probably challenge for Europe/champions league :p

Check out this kid. My wonder striker. Link to full size pic: http://i.imgur.com/nXSjMpC.jpg

 

22 in 19 starts in the league this year, 31 in 32 games last year. 10 in 15 internationals. Shame he's Greek! Picked him up for 2.5m 4 seasons ago and he even managed 2 games that same season he was already that good.

 

Since then, 12 in 21, 31 in 32 and 22 in 22 and the kid is still only 20. 

 

Crazy thing is, he's probably not even my best player. My AMC just behind him is just otherworldly.

 

That kid is ridiculous. If his mentals kick on and some of his technicals improve, as one would assume they will with him only being 20, he could become simply insane.

 

How much did you pay for him?

When creating a new game you need to pick the right database in the drop down menu. It'll be the one showing that there is an active change (or something like that)

    • Having the long term injured back should be a big help to us. Agree with BD that it’s impossible to tell until the games get going again but having a full squad to select from should be a big plus for us. I feel sorry for Charlton fans as it looks like they have all sorts of problems that won’t be beneficial to a relegation battle.
    • I agree with what Brunners is saying here @BillyWoofs_shinpad. I think it's a bit harsh to say he clearly wasn't motivated to do the job because he never got to do the job. He also had an awful start, suffered quite a long term injury at the start and despite being this big money signing that Burnley were supposedly desperate for, nothing has actually changed. Now maybe you can say as a professional he has to get on with that but I'd be shocked to hear Burnley paid £18m or whatever it was for a 4th choice centre-back who never makes the bench, I'd be shocked if that's the promise made to him when signing, I'd be willing to stake a lot on the idea that Ben was given some reassurances of playing time that simply haven't come to fruition. That may not make him unaccountable for the entirety of the process and like you, this is largely just my opinion. And I will say on the flip side, I also think it doesn't look good that he's training with us both for him and Burnley. I also think we're a bit culpable because I don't think Gibson wanted to leave and we pushed him out after wasting a *** ton of money. Now we are being this safe haven for him as he's come back to the conclusion that he had seemingly already made before leaving; he wanted to stay and he'll do anything to come back, including using the extent of his player power to make it happen.
    • It has been hinted at in the past the Burnley bought him to replace someone who was then never sold, if Gibson had been told these are my starters and even when they're unavailable you won't get a chance he probably wouldn't have signed. according to Johnathan Walters, Gibson was a true professional during his time there Walters added: "I will start by saying Ben is an unbelievable professional, he joined for £15million from Middlesbrough when he had been in and around the England squad and he just didn't play.   "He trained unbelievably well every single day, he is so professional outside of the club, he is always doing things to keep himself on top and improve himself and obviously something has happened. "It looks like he wants to go, something has happened within the club whether it is a falling out with the manager or staff.
    • It must have been a massive shock for poor Ben when he walked into the dressing room on his first day only to find out that Sean Dyche was the Burnley manager. 
    • Just saying things how I see them, Brunners. He’s not even training with Burnley, hasn’t for months, so I don’t think he has any motivation whatsoever to play for them.  By all means disagree, but provide some sort of argument to back your reasoning.
