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?

Do we know when and where there is a summer update available for this?

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)

    • I'm guessing that our squad of 25 players next season will have a few young ones lets say 5 at around £4K a week, then say a core group of 14 at around £8K to £10K a week so lets call it £9K. Then there will likely be a few who are paid a little bit more say 4 around £12K then I'd guess say two on £20K for their "star status."  I make that a weekly bill of £234,000 and annually just over £12M. I'm guessing that SG and the Accountants will work out how much of a squad wage bill they can afford and work it backwards starting with who is already here and how much are they costing us then the difference is what NW will have to negotiate and wriggle with. There are all sorts of permutations that can be worked into that, he may prefer to gamble with padding the squad with say the likes of Wood, Wing, Spence and Coulson (or of that ilk rather than them specifically) so he can offer a bit more elsewhere, for example a Striker who is mobile and even scores goals may be deemed value for money in committing a huge dollop of that budget to. Just as an aside to me Fletcher doesn't fit that billing. Loans where parent clubs pay a big chunk will likely have to be well executed in getting the likes of Kebano back in on loan but the waiting and the chance that you don't get who you really want could leave us short. The £12M figure is just a nominal one, it could be £15M or indeed could be much lower depending upon the real financial landscape rather than the one we are hoping for. One or two of the younger players or lower paid players are likely on less than £4K or £9K so there may be more flexibility. When it comes to the names being bandied about like Bolasie I'm guessing that he will occupy one of the top salary berths if he came permanently. Like Fletcher I'm not sure that represents a good return on that level of investment, the question then becomes if not them then who?
    • What do we need now? A goalkeeper and two strikers worthy of the name, and a CB because Hall and Fry have both been missed whenever they've been out. What will we need by August? Surely that depends how many of the loanees stay or go? If they all stay, I think we've probably got enough bodies and strength in depth without bankrupting ourselves. If players start drifting back to parent clubs, we need to replace them with like-for-like. On paper, our squad today is stronger than it has been for a couple of years. I do think we could fashion a really good side over the next year, similar to the Karanka-era sides where the starting XI largely picked itself and subs made a real impact, but endlessly chopping and changing playing personnel won't help to build that consistency. Personally, I'm not a fan of loan signings for that very reason, but I accept they're a necessary evil when we don't have money to pay up front for outright acquisitions.  
    • Get what wages off the books?  Assombalonga is leaving regardless of who the manager is.  Fletcher may not leave if he signs a new deal.  Who else is there exactly? I've said this a few times because it's worth pointing out - Cardiff's wage bill went up with Warnock as the manager, not down.  People are talking about us signing Bolasie, Mendez-Laing, and any number of other players.  We've had lists of free transfers this summer put up on the forum.  These players aren't going to sign for nothing.  Bolasie might not want £70k a week like he's been getting at Everton, but he won't be coming in on the cheap either, if he comes here at all.  There's a thread up now for the summer transfer window with people putting up all kinds of amounts of players we have to sign.  If any of them are even close then the wage bill is unlikely to go down.  The signings we've already made this season won't have come cheaply either albeit they might not be at the same level as the likes of Ayala, Clayton, Gestede and Friend, who all left last summer.
    • It's ok as it is only Dans  Summer transfer thread, will wait until the MFC transfer thread comes up🤪
    • Mowett would be decent on a free but his agent will really shop him aroundif they don't go up or he doesn't sign a nee deal.  I really like that Hamer from Coventry.
