I think this was a fault picked up in the beta alright should be fixed now.

I agree going Very Defensive when winning a game 2-0 just seems wrong compared to contain.
Ah perhaps I haven’t downloaded the latest update.

Still though, it’s a serious upgrade from FM18, and with those two systems plus dynamics from last year it feels so much more sophisticated and realistic than FM17 and earlier.

I'm tempted to get the iOS version as it's simpler and only costs around £9, I don't really have the time to get into the full game nowadays.

This is really tempting me to get it for Nintendo Switch

Not got into an FM game since 2012. Think they've gone downhill to be honest.

Which ones have you got? I think there’s more of an up front time investment these days to get up to speed on it, but I find it pretty intuitive after about half a season’s play time. And the new systems are way better than the old ones. But I suppose it goes back to the old arcade v simulation debate - if you want the former, stick to FIFA, if you want the latter you want FM. (I know so few people who like them both...)

Had 14 and 18 since having 12. 14 just plain sucked and 18 was alright but not particularly good. On 12 I played about 17 seasons with Rotherham taking them from League 2 to 2 time Champions League winners <awe>

This. Absolutely adored the games up until 2011 and got them every year. I kept getting them until about 2016 but couldn’t ever get into a save. It always just felt like such hard work <urgh>

12 is my favourite <awe> I did a similar thing but with Crewe Alex. I think 14 and 15 were both a bit rubbish, I've not even bothered with 18 and won't get 19. 17 is the best I've played since 12, and been getting a lot of mileage out of it. Plus with the steam workshop you can just download a mod to update all the player databases and it's essentially like the next game, just without forking out 40-50 quid or whatever.
