    I manage to win the League undefeated in 30 games total. My team is AE Larissa, a mediocre Greek team. This is the fourth season of the game. I put all the Points in the academy and i had a lot of good players (values over 5.5 M) and also i had a fantastic super star! In one year of getting first team football he raised from 16.5 M / 77 attack, to 77 M / 88 attack ! And he is just 22 years old!

    Hi there, First time player here. I picked up this game after finding the 2016 version on steam a day or two ago... instantly hooked! then i find this Version so there goes my Saturday! I can't believe this game is free to play! OK so it might not be the Rolls Royce football manager simulator that shall not be named but this game blends both the arcade and the simulation aspects of this particular 'game genre' so well! I really enjoy being able to take control of high level club functions as well as managing the team and this game executes those options well. And when i said free to play, I mean free to play! I've gone straight in with a low league team and worked the magic without the need for 'pay to win' credits! Another aspect of the game is that it has both a very polished and uncomplicated UI, but also a clearly detailed, well engineered and fine code base powering this! So with that, And having enjoyed my first few hours so much I felt compelled to part with some of my cheddar as a way of thanking the devs. It's the right thing to do! you guys deserve everyone's appreciation! The only issue i found was that i didn't want to cheap out and just get the smallest thing so i looked at the combos, the small is nice, but then i was getting concerned i would OP my save with this stuff. i appreciate you can buy each thing individually but who doesn't want a combo deal?!? I had a though about how you could maybe add a feature to allow us to pick between a few ratios of the items and set a price then see how much we get using those settings... for example... (if you select high or low in one it removes that option from the others. Normal is the exception, its always selectable) Credits dropdown/radio: high, normal, low Points dropdown/radio: high, normal, low Coins dropdown/radio: high, normal, low Value To Buy: $/£_________ You get: x Credits x Points x Coins Buy? Some other thoughts... Being able to hire, train and fire staff and entrust responsibilities. (director of football - could do contracts and sign players etc) Allow us to search for sponsorship deals, image rights, stadium naming rights, training ground naming rights Adjust (season) ticket prices, food and beverage prices, shirt replica cost/quality/prices, merch prices, rent stadium for events pricing. Allow us to upgrade/modify non-football infrastructure - merch, pr (profile, local events/offers, youth), groundsmen, mascots - cheerleaders, medical, stadium infrastructure, training ground infrastructure Control of arranging friendlies and off season tourneys More media interaction, and some team/player communication both in and out of game High risk corruption options.. (intimidate refs, fix a draw, get a red rescinded) get caught big fine, fired etc. Apologies for the essay. I really love this game! I was working to make one myself. you have all the key features i wanted in a game! Thanks for this.

    If your player has suffered a season ending injury or even a slight knock to miss the next game, then you can send them off to a specialist to be instantly healed and be ready to play.

    While the new Update has brought in some excellent new features I feel they have missed an opportunity to bring young players on in all leagues. Super Cups are all very well but as always will be contested by the top teams with the top rated players. Would`nt it be good if there was a Youth League or at the least a Youth Cup/League Cup? What`s the `point of having seven or eight young players in your squad rated for example average 78 when they are very unlikely to get game time if your team has an average of say 85? Only on exceptional occasions when you have many injuries,suspensions etc are you likely to use them. A youth league would encourage managers to sign youth players and use them and the youth players playing would give them the opportunity to increase their rating if they were playing regularly. Just my thoughts. Jamtart98

    You could always make up your own.

    Hello, the game could have sponsorship choice at the end of all seasons, example: Nike, Adidas, under harmour, etc. and players would choose one of the options one with more others less dependent on their performance in the championship.

    Can you guys make it so we can train only the players we want for each session?

    I agree with most of what Braeriach said would also like a stat that shows the average rating in the last five games, so we can tell which players are in the best form.

    After playing the game for a while I have the following suggestions. 1. Coach that gives you a scout report on each player in your team. When you get youth promotion you know very little about the potential of the player so you have to sell them to scout them. This is the most useful addition to the game for me. 2. You cannot scout free agent players or see any stats, so how about you can invite the to trial at the club and get your coach to report after training. 3. When promoted or win trophies your fanbase should increase. If you win the Premier league in your country or the champions league you should see good sized increase in support. 4. Ability to pick either the current bundle of prizes on manager level up, or one larger qty of one thing instead. I personally would rather have club points than money and free money can be overpowered for lower league teams. 5. Remove reserves from the list of potential players from training. I have to get rid of poor players completely fast rather than risk them getting trained instead of first tteam players. 6. Allow position modifications. Too many players are FLR or AMLR which are pretty useless in the formations given. Spend say 50 coins to change positions. 7. Allow extra club points to be transferred between games. When you have purchased club points you have to use them all in one game. They should be transferable if not spent. 8. Have clubs respond with "worth more" transfer requests with suggested value. 9. Have players value increased by being top or near top scorer in the league as currently that makes little difference to the player value.

    Hello SM18 users! Theres been a few reports from users about issues with their screen resolution in the Steam version of the game, so here's a quick post detailing how to fix this. The game should automatically detect your resolution and set itself to an optimal resolution on its first launch. If it doesn't, it could be because your monitor's resolution is not supported. or the game has failed to auto-detect your resolution for some reason. If you have problems, try this: Change the screen resolution or select to display the game in Window mode. You can do this by HOLDING THE ALT KEY WHEN YOU CLICK PLAY on the game in Steam. This displays configuration menu with a list of supported resolutions - try different ones until you find one that works. Note: The game is optimised for 16:9 screen resolutions (e.g 1600 x 900, 1366 x 768), but can also work on 4:3 (e.g 1024 x 768, 1280 x 960). 16:10 is not officially supported, so if you monitor is set to a 16:10 resolution you will likely have problems. I hope this helps! Theo (SM Support)

    Regarding the Premier League (PR), it is by far the most difficult league to play into. You might win 0-2 away vs Man City and then loose 1-3 home vs Stoke for example.... In Premier League, there are 7-8 world class teams and even the "smaller" ones have players of high value and attributes. While on other leagues there are 3-4 maximum good teams (1-2 of them would be world class) I am playing Chesterfield in 2023 (3rd year in PL now) and i always try different tactics in order to have some stability in the results. I tried all the most popular tactics but nothing was stable. This year i said that i would give a shot at the classic 4-4-2 and 4-4-1-1 and finally i have some stability at the performance of my team! (3rd place now). I m guessing that the 4-4-1-1 formation gives you the control in all the parts of the field and give you chances to score that this particular game favors. And those are: 1) Crosses from wingers to FW and AMC and headers or one-timer shots to goal 2) One-two pass combination from FW and AMC leading to many one vs one situations (there is a bug here, i posted on BUGS form) 3) Control over the sides of the pitch. With a ML and a DL (same for the right side) you block the majority of the opponents winger attacks. I honestly think that this is the factor that leads to stability in the results. Cheers!

    Also if I sold a player to an opponent team they won't play for them regardless the value or buying price. Its senseless to sell or loan out players...

    I wrote in another thread about how I have mysteriously lost some veteran players. I am sick about it, and think about staring over. Now, I am in season 2028. If I start over in 2018, do I lose my manager history - the trophies, the stadium improvements, the training upgrades? If I simply go to another team in 2028, do I lose the trophies and improvements also? How is it best to restart the game play?

    Hey team sm. I really enjoy playing this game but there is something i want to change! First, it is the older players values. They shouldn't be valued more than the younger players! For excample Buffon worths more than De Gea and he is 39. This is not realistic at all. And the other one is that if you can, bring the overall ratings back. Would be very helpful☺☺

    Could have a tool to create a player, who would come from the juniors to the main cast

    Hi, thanks for the message! If you start a new game, the only thing that will carry over is your Soccer Manager credits, as this is tied to your account and not your save game. Everything else will be reset. If you accept a job at a new club, your bank balance will change to that of the new club. Your Soccer Manager credits will remain the same. Your stadium will be reset to whatever the new club's stadium is. Your tech trees (training, stadium, scouting and youth upgrades) will all be reset - but you will get all of the club points back so you can spend them again. You will keep your trophies, and your board/fan/media confidence will all remain the same too. So basically all you lose by taking a new job is your stadium stand upgrades. I hope this answers your questions! Theo

    I ve seen that other teams are making transfers but very very few. 1-2 players most. It is true that most of teams have the same rosters as the starting season so yes this is something that could be fixed in the future.

    I'd like to see the Manager points reward system given some level of intelligence. For example I get the same reward for beating a bottom of the league Serbian team as I do for thumping arch rivals Partizan 7-0 in our domestic cup final. Similarly beating Barcelona in the Champions League, a huge achievement with my comparatively lowly rated players gets me the same reward. It would be nice to see some sliding scale of reward instead of the current static one.

    verdade... as equipes não fazem transferências... muito ruim você ter uma equipe de 1a linha e seus oponentes serem uns lixos com um elenco velho e sem qualidade

    Soccer Manager 2018 is a single player game so you cannot manage teams against your friends team . If you want to play against your friends then why not try our multiplayer game Soccer Manager Worlds?

    I have been playing this game for nearly two months now. I started from non league as Tranmere Rovers and continued to progress through the league's. That was until last night. I had qualified for champions league position. Won cup double and was on last game of the season when the whole game decided to reset itself. This was after the latest game update. To say I'm annoyed is an understatement.
