Football manager 2020

    Couldn't see a thread. Bought it earlier. I expect to get my team relegated and sacked within the first season.

    Looking forward to it.

    I've been quite addicted to it, but it seems very easy. Gegenpress is ridiculous. I won the SPFL championship with all wins apart from 2 draws and a single loss.

    I've always struggled in more recent years. I do pick Blackburn though who are pretty shit so I like the challenge. Love the new additions this year.

    @its-H1ggyLTD The Noob Camp? Twatfield? Or Santiago Bernabellend?

    I'm very tempted to dive back in for the first time in probably a decade with FM Mobile 2020. But it's such a slippery slope...

    Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in. Been playing this years version, each copy should come with a syringe for insertion.

    Change their name to the Manchester whinging fuckwits if they prefer. Or remove them entirely and replace with FC United of Manchester.

    The arguement that the use of generic colours prevents their right to have their logo licensed is mental.

    I’m sure the reputational damage caused by the game doing that was well worth the reputational damage caused by going all Lars Ulrich v Napster about it

    Only positives for Unites here

    Does anyone play the Touch version of this on iPad and is it any good? I stopped playing after 09/10 but fancy getting back into FM. Not keen on the detailed version though.

    @erasr I do yeah.

    Depends what you mean by good, it’s football manager so you pretty much know what you are getting? I like it.

    @erasr Play it on Switch...not as involving as the full fat version and easy to play on the go

    The switch version is the same as the iPad version with worse resolution and no ability to upload custom graphics, face packs or stuff like that...

    Also the switch version can’t cross save with PC but the iPad one can.

    I have all 3 this year lol.

    It's shown me the Qatar World Cup season is going to be horrible. Just feels like it never ends.

    I have been perma-disappointed by new FM releases since, like, 2014 or something. I put over nearly 3000 hours into '07>'13, but have barely touched the series since. The newer titles are just so padded out with distracting gimmicks, and - greatest sin of all - all of the matches seem to just play out pre-figured, pre-scripted events rather than being pure AI events... You just know that last minute goals will happen, that there will be showstopping long ranged curled goals, there'll be penalties, solo runs... It's just... saccharine. So yeah, not going to play 2020.

    THAT SAID, I actually installed 2012 a few days ago, since it was my most played version, and I've been slowly un-breaking that awful QPR team from back then~ Fun!

    @THFourteen thanks - good answer.

    Yeah the bigger screen on my iPad Pro feels more appealing than switch. I’d get it on Mac but that feels like my work computer so I like to stay away from it at weekends.

    Ah the good days. I took an entire year off in 2002 and playing Football Manager every single day for 5 hours, claiming it was my new ‘career’. Used to be obsessed by Champ Man and Footy Man.

    The new full fat ones lost their charm so I’m hoping ‘Touch’ has some of the classic feeling.
