Starting a game as Swindon and was just wondering if anyone else has done the same, if so who they have signed?

I signed Bob Harris, Jordan Spence, Sacha Bastien and Samad Yesil on free transfers.

Sam McQueen on loan.

Murray is a beast.

I get this for Christmas, haven't tried the demo yet even.

What are the differences from 2016's version.

Mainly subtle changes, the game play engine is smoother.
Have a read of this

I've not played much due to time but it seems to be quite a big improvement, I'm in late January and joint top with Peterborough.

Norris and Delf can't score for shit.

As always seems like real life then!

Have there been any changes noticable in game graphics? It always ran fast and I doubt there is much they could do other than improve a few angles of view etc, the stadiums let it down a little in 2016.

Is it still hard as fuck to win games? and changing tactics for every game being much more important than consistancy of tactics again?

Is is worth buying? FM in general seems to have become crack-proof of late.

Glad to hear there are improvements, last year and the year before didn't seem much of an update at all they just seemed to make the game harder to get results consistantly.

Yeah there hasn't been a decent crack for a few years now. I normally download the cracked version to test it and buy the real one after I have become accustomed to it, can't do that these days.

Fast and bulbous, tight also.

Man desires his own oppression.

And so, I started a save where all authority over appointments and transfers were handed to Lee Power and Seamus Brady (as the game is pre-Sherwood). I've actually been relatively happy with their work; they've signed Matt Upson on a free, Max Lowe on loan from Derby and Liam Walsh on loan from Everton.

Currently sitting 4th at the end of January, one point off the top in a tight division. Obika has 24 goals in all competitions and Jordan Young has been a pleasant surprise with 5 goals in 17 games.

I can confirm that Norris and Delf remain wank in the void of virtual reality.

I was tempted with Upson but it goes against the clubs philosophy of signing young players.

The biggest chance in recent years has been to do with morale. If you can keep your squad morale high then you'll string together some superb results but as soon as you lose a game it's all undone
