    Oxford United first season. Callum Camps!

    First venture on the new FM, and I started off unemployed. Took over at Oxford in October, with them 4 point off the bottom of the League and things have gone really well. I'm half way through January now and find myself 3 points off the play off positions, after only 2 defeats in my 14 games...

    Game crashes when I minimize

    Loads of goals from corners?

    I have noticed this has been an issue with the last few FM editions, I would say that about 40% of my goals come from corners, my defenders get ridiculously high average rating as they score so many goals, its got a bit annoying and I was hoping it would be sorted on the new game, but it hasnt...

    Why don't players cross it anymore?

    I've started a few different saves on the new FM, but its become really frustrating as this happens with every team Ive started with. My wingers or full backs get into great crossing positions all the time, but 9 times out of 10 they either cut back towards the byline or pass it backwards to a...
