    I havent gotten into this version as enthusiastically as previous versions (probably cos its basically the same game as the past 5 versions at least with very minor tweaks and also cos I cant figure out the tactical interface). Still, I guess this has to return, if only as a forum for me to...

    Is this a stupid question?

    Please boys and girls, how does one import tactics in FM16 (and does changing tactics file to .TAC work the same as in FM 15)? Thanks a lot!

    Dear all, For ease of reference and as the BOX OF CHOCCYS thread is getting to long to navigate conveniently, Ive decided to extract all my tactical musings to this thread.

    Ive decided, for convenience's sake to start a thread in which to put all those players I have recommended in the BOX OF CHOCCYS thread.

    South American Leagues

    This is the second FM iteration in a row where the scheduling in the SA leagues is crazy - especially if one is successful. For example in my first season with Deportivo Cali in Colombia I had to play 5 matches in 7 days more than once. That was a slog, unrealistic AND cost me the cup! Please...

    To whet your appetites Ill start with a player recommendation of somebody who is an absolute GOD and not very expensive (though he wants high wages): ELKESON - plays at GUANGZHU in China as a cf.

    The Manchester UTD FM15 Discussion Thread

    Im surprised that there is no thread yet dedicated to MUTD in FM15 so Im starting one. And to get us going here's what I did: (a) Took the 68m wage budget option. (b) Sold Fletcher and Ando for about 4.5m each (c) Bought (using instalments): Gino Peruzzi Sven (? - the one from Dortmund)...

Here we can discuss all things FM14 related (and maybe some non FM14 related!), you can ask me stuff (not that I profess to know that much but together we ll...

    MANUMAD's guide to managing AS MONACO (a discussion thread)

    For obvious reasons (starting in Ligue 2 so a bit of a challenge, having money so a chance to build up a nice squad, buying everybody whos any good in real life recently) AS MONACO are quite a popular team to manage on FM13. I have noticed that there are too many threads asking for advice/ideas...

    The River Plate thread

    I must admit I am quite shocked that there is no thread on River Plate. So I thought to start one to generate some interest in them and maybe get a few people to play with them. The first advantage as far as Im concerned is that they play in the Argentinian leagues which are among the most...
