  2. Dan eens kijken wat er gebeurt als je je virusscanner uitzet. Kan best zijn dat die voor conflicten zorgt. Heb dat toen ook bij FM16 gehad.
  3. Klinkt alsof je schijf vol zit.. Heb je al geprobeerd de game even helemaal opnieuw te installeren?
  4. A new article series here at FMInside.net, where we take a look around the football manager community and ask bloggers and writers we admire and respect to write something for the website. Today we kick-off this new series with one of the more well-known bloggers from the community: Mr. Keysi Rensie. A great article on what he does after he decides to start a new save on Football Manager. Enjoy the read! "You have selected two leagues from one nation with a small database. The game will start in June 2016." I think the very important thing is just before you click to "Start Game" because if you want to have a good save it's important to load the right database and right nations around the country you play in. For example, if I play in the Czech Republic I always load Slovakia, Poland, Germany and Austria. So all nations around the borders. What about a database? I always make a custom setup and I load Players of the nationality of all nations I load. Why? If nothing more because of Youth Intakes and it's also very useful in terms of transfers out & in. You can add & remove leagues during the save of course. We need to divide some tips because it's different if I start a new save with club I knew before and if I start a save with a club I didn't know before. For my saves is very common I try to find most of the available information about the club to be closer to the club I selected. The first way - if I know the club it's very easy as I know what I want to change in terms of staff, players and other. The second way is opposite, that means I spent a lot of time analysing the First team, reserve and youth team. There is also room for analysis of staff, training regime, scouting network and etc. I think about tactics in absolutely the same way as you can choose a team for your new save and you don't know the PROS & CONS of each player and you can decide to develop formation to suit your players. TACTICS Like I said it depends if I know before what I want to play or if it's random choice and I develop tactic after I know all players. But since you are able to have up to 3 formations loaded in the game I always have some variations there. Example - I want to play 4-3-3 narrow as my main tactic so this one is in the first slot. The second slot is for 4-3-1-2 formation with similar instructions or little bit tweaked and the last slot is for 4-1-3-1-1 for example. But the most important for me is to have almost similar instructions, mentality and shape to be sure players will be familiar with it faster. TRAINING My training regime is very easy. I always use Team Cohesion as general training and intensity level is average. Main match preparation focus is Match Tactics. Time from the time I change match preparation to Attacking Set Pieces. SET PIECES One of the most important thing in the game for me same as in the real life football. I always spent a lot of time with developing routines for all types of set pieces. They could be very useful in time you try to create a new tactic and not everything is perfect and your team is not playing in the right way. Set Pieces could give you some advantage in these times as you could score some goals from the free kick, throw-in or corner routines. And it could help to get some positive results and maybe it could save you the job. DOWNLOAD KEYSI'S SET PIECE ROUTINES SQUAD - PROMOTING PLAYERS My saves in the past were almost all about to play with young players who are at most 24 or 25 years old. It was not unusual I played with the average age around 19 or less. And I always have the best young players around 16 or 17 years old in the First Team squad because of training and they also have a chance to get some playing time in cup matches. And of course, they have a lot of playing time in the reserve team. During the save there are many players who leave the club for free as they are not good enough but when I start a new save I always keep them, even if they are not good enough, in the youth team to be sure there are players available to play in matches. FRIENDLIES The last important thing for me is friendlies. It could sound weird to mention this part of the game but it could be very important for good pre-season and also for your finances. I never let to arrange friendlies by my assistant. I always arrange it by myself because of two reasons. I'm sure I will select better teams to play against in terms of their quality and maybe more importantly better teams because of financial profit. It's a great way how to earn money if you're a small club. Just invite more reputable club to play at your stadium and you can earn money thanks to attendance and sometimes also thanks to TV revenue. The second important thing is – you should arrange friendlies/leagues/cups as soon as possible and you should not wait when your players will be back from holiday or pre-season starts. Why? When you will wait until the last moment, the most reputable clubs will have their friendlies already arranged. And it would be a shame for you.

  5. The Golden Boy is an award that is given by sports journalists to a young football player playing in Europe perceived to have been the most impressive during a calendar year (two halves to two separate seasons). All nominees must be under the age of 21 and play in a European nation's top tier (source Wikipedia). The award has been introduced back in 2003 and players like Rafael van der Vaart (2003), Wayne Rooney (2004), Lionel Messi (2005) and Paulo Pogba (2013) have all won the Golden Boy Award. Last year FC Bayern and Portugal midfielder Renato Sanches was voted the winner. The young powerhouse has been nominated for this years' award as well. The list has been published several days ago and we have noted all the players that are on the list for you to use with Football Manager 2017. To help you on your way we have sorted the table on position and have created profiles for most of the players in our Scouting Database. If you want to sort the table on Name, Club, Nationality or Age, just click on the column-head to sort that column. If the player has been reviewed by our staff, you will see a 'Profile' link which will re-direct you towards the correct FM17 Player Profile.

  6. The Raumdeuter is one of the more new player roles in Football Manager. The role was introduced some versions ago and it has been making quite the development since that moment. In this guide we will take a look at the role, show you which attributes he needs to shine and at the end we will give you a list with the 10 best Raumdeuters in our Player Database. WHAT IS A RAUMDEUTER? FM17 states: His main role is to find pockets of space in which to operate. Essentially a wide poacher, the Raumdeuter takes up seemingly harmless positions out wide, waiting for the opportune moment to burst through the defensive line for that telling shot or cross. He is difficult for defenders to pick up as he will often drift from his assigned position looking for any opportunity to exploit. This can result in quiet periods during which the Raumdeuter may neglect his defensive duties, therefore adequate cover and a strong team shape are key in order to fully utilise his attacking prowess in the final third. Basically a Raumdeuter is nothing more than a Winger that is expected to pick up his goals for the team instead of throwing in the occasional cross. The Raumdeuter will cut inside and will lure for space to pop-up inside the box to finish the ball. This is an ideal role if you play with a lone stiker up front, but still want the power of 2 strikers. No doubt this role is linked to Thomas Muller, whose amazing breakthrough season in 2010 gave the creators of Football Manager the inspiration to add this new role to the game. But before the Germans impressive performances in 2010, players like Liverpool’s Dirk Kuyt played as a Raumdeuter on the wing or even Chelsea-winger and former Barcelona forward Pedro showing these skills. WHICH ATTRIBUTES DOES HE NEED? The Raumdeuter is one of the few roles where the Technical and Physical side of his profile are considered to be less important. Above everything else, the Raumdeuter needs to be an intelligent player that knows exactly where and when he will need to make his runs. So he will need to be a Mental beast to play in this role. KEY TECHNICAL ATTRIBUTES Finishing First Touch DESIREABLE ATTRIBUTES Heading Finishing is an obvious choice when it comes to selecting key attributes for the Raumdeuter. Also having a perfect First Touch is vital. This could create that extra secoNd of space inside the box for him and could mean the difference between a goal and a blocked shot. KEY MENTAL ATTRIBUTES Anticipation Composure Concentration Decisions Determination Off the Ball Work Rate All of these of the above are considered to be vital for the Raumdeuter. In an ideal situation he should have 15+ on all of the attributes. KEY PHYSICAL ATTRIBUTES Balance Stamina DESIREABLE ATTRIBUTES Acceleration Pace Strength The Raumdeuter must have the balance (and strength) to win duels inside the box. Having a high balance (and strength) will make it more difficult for the defense to get him off the ball. Having a high Stamina is necessary for him to cover the space he plays in and to move into channels whenever he can. For the Raumdeuter it is desired to have some speed as well, although this is only considered to be an extra bonus. Acceleration and Pace aren’t vital, but could prove to be an extra weapon for the Raumdeuter.
