Football Manager 2017

It's been fine for me, the match engine seems far better than recent years, seems like it reacts to player roles and your tactics a lot more responsively (if that's a word)

Yeah I was wary about the changes when they were bigging them up but they do actually seem to have hugely improved the AI this year which is nice.

After avoiding for a couple of weeks due to being burned too many times with shoddy products the last few years I decided to get this today.

 

Two hours into my first game and the game crashes, losing everything I've done in that two hours. Yeah, I probably won't go back to it.

Of course I went back on that.

 

Back in again, managed to get the board to agree to a massive increase in wage budget, affording me a lot more room to maneuver in the window. I've managed to sell Stuani and Mejias too.

 

I've loaned in Boschilla from Monaco to back up Gaston, signed Gonzalo Martinez for left wing and Luan for right wing. Still have about 6mil left to spend, anyone sign any real superstars in their first season for me to go for?

I've found it difficult to get any room in the transferbudget in the first season. No teams will bid for my players even though there are interest in Nsue and Stuani. I've only signed Samba Sow as a DM/CM backup. He is relatively cheap and looks decent. I have a massive amounts of injuries though.

 

As the last version of this game it's absolutely goals galore and no lead is too big to throw away. In the first game I was trailing 0-2 at half time and came back to 2-2 before losing 3-2 in stoppage time. Second game I was leading 2-0 at half time only to lose 2-3 deep into injury time. In the third game I was leading 3-0 before Watford scored 3 goals between 60-70 mins. Eventually I ended up winning 5-3! So three games in and my score is 9-9 even though I've played a counter attacking 4-3-2-1 formation.

 

This is definately the last version I'm buying unless it gets more real from now on. Almost every highlight is a goal.

Yeah I'm finding way too many goals as well. Pretty annoying since this has been an issue for years now.

There's something wrong with this game... 6 games into the premiership and 8 teams in the league have not yet had a draw. Only two teams have had two.

 

That's crazy!

What you don't want in this game is a 2-0 half time lead. Impossible to keep.

After 8 matches I have 18 goals for and 21 against. It's quite frankly ridiculous.

I don't know for certain but I think the goals against decreases as you get more familiar with your tactic as your players will make less mistakes.

 

Like I said, that's just a guess but based on how my season went where I opened scoring 3-5 goals a game and conceding 3-5 goals a game and then in the middle of the season I dropped to conceding 0-2 goals.

I'm doing my usual San Marino save and haven't had much of an issue with high scoring games, there's the odd one but it wouldn't be football manager without them

 

Got a nice 4-3-2-1 DM tactic I'm using which got me promoted to serie A (I'm in 2026) , it's very flexible with how you want to play, I've used as a counter , control and an attckig formation depending on the instructions given

 

I can upload it if anyone would like to give it a try

It's fairly basic and suits my players' attributes so you might need to have a tinker with it but the DM is vital for this formation to work, he needs to have good anticipation and positioning to get the most out of him, decent passing skills would be a bonus too, is job is to break up attacks and quickly set away the players in front of him.

 

If winning the game late on i usually drop the wingers deeper to protect the full backs.

If the opposition are playing a high line during a game you can switch the Poacher into a DLF if he isn't winning much against the oppponents CB's.

 

Match training set to Def. Positioning for the majority then Att. Movement against the bottom teams.

 

It is very basic with not many instructions etc. but it seems to be working for me

After holidays and avoiding buying the game to give time for writing, I've finally picked up FM2017 - loaded up a Boro game and raring to go! About to dive back through here for your tips - though it appears Traore is rated as a wonderkid!

Be prepared to concede an obscene amount of goals. The amount of goals is staggering.

    • We've got to come out of the blocks fast and on the front foot, vital that we get that early goal, because the more the game goes on without scoring, that's when we get frustrated and allow the opposition chances. We have got to create  the goal scoring opportunities for Britt, its no good him feeding off scraps, but other players are going to have to start weighing in with a few more. McNair needs to be getting in the box and Tav and Wing both can hit a ball outside and around the box and Woodgate needs to encourage them to do this. I think the only way I see Woodgate changing the side is if we have an injury beforehand. No excuses or hard luck stories, anything less than 6 points from the next 2 home games is a failure, we have got to be winning them.  
    • They have a goalkeeper on their books called Will Mannion, which is just one letter away from the great man's name.  One letter in a game like this can be crucial. I assume we'll have the same team out unless we've suffered some injuries over the break.  I haven't heard anything though.  My instincts would be to switch to a back four but that's more about me not being convinced that the current set up is the way to go for us.  We've got to hope that Assombalonga's confidence is up a bit because he looks like the only person capable of scoring goals for us with any regularity - it's time that a few other players stepped up and contributed goals. We might have a problem defending our flanks given we'll have wingbacks and they won't and they are good on the break, which is another problem as I think our midfield is crap at defending counterattacks in general.  Their away record is actually pretty good, which is a bit of a worry as it may well suit them.  I don't fancy going a goal down against this lot as I think it will play into their hands.
    • The issue of Russian interference on Oneboro has been massively overblown ♟️
    • Why does the MFC Fans Forum have to be about things affecting the average Boro fan as a priority?  Read that question to yourself a few times and see if you can come up with an answer.  If you can't then I'd suggest you are the one missing the point rather than anyone else.  Let's start a forum for dialogue with the club and then prioritise the interests of the smallest number of Boro fans possible and indeed people who aren't actually Boro fans at all.  That seems like a logical use of such a vehicle assuming of course that it's less about being a method for Boro fans to communicate with the club and more about being a socio-political group. In terms of race and sexuality, I haven't seen anything in the minutes regarding either of those subjects.  So whilst you may well feel they are massively important, they don't appear to be taking up much of the time of this forum.  I'm also not sure what the forum itself can do that the individual groups aren't already doing as I assume the likes of Boro Fusion and Rainbow Reds are groups devoted to this stuff? I couldn't give a *** who the chairman endorses as a political party candidate.  It has absolutely nothing to do with me and it has absolutely nothing to do with this group.  He's entitled to vote for, endorse or think whatever he likes about politics, as is everyone else.  The fact that you've brought this up illustrates the political side of this and why the priorities probably won't be the average Boro fan unfortunately and of course why you'll be fine with that. It isn't a choice between supporting people in poverty or reducing the price of tickets.  One has nothing at all to do with the other and only one of them has anything to do with a Middlesbrough Fans Forum but you seem to be confused about which one it is.  Again, that's because of your own politics, which should have no place in a forum like this.     
    • Of course we can, not saying we can't, apologies that I misread your response and I was partly tackling CT's response too and maybe conflated both responses into one in mine. I was simply trying to tackle the idea that there is any triviality in tackling those things, the idea that they're not important for a supporters club to help deal with and really that ticket prices are more important than those things that have been tackled by the group. Of course I don't agree that the conversation is always in the direction I'd like too, thus why I'd like us to be able to be part of it and put our heads together and come up with a reasonable proposal that both explains why what we're doing is bad and examples of how we could be doing better, why the current status quo is considered among fans on here to be so unacceptable. As I said, without being part of the discussion, we can't affect anything. We might not affect it by being part of it either, we might get hounded out for holding a different stance but we certainly won't have a significant voice if we don't try to get involved to begin with.
