‍Anyone taken the plunge? I have bought it but probably have one season then never play it again. Started with Blackpool and we have sold 800 season tickets and Oyston has given me nothing to spend. 

Can you arrange a hit on the owner?

I mean in real life.

‍One game in and Oyston is looking to sell. If my attendances still stay at 2k when Oyston leaves, I am going to resign and give football manager shit on Twitter

‍aye when I played the beta the attendances dont rise after Oyston goes, I got a response saying they'd address it so dont know if they have done in the full release

‍Haven't played a footie manager game since Football Manager on the Spectrum. It was written in Basic, so it was easy to change the Blackpool players names to whatever me & my mates wanted. It was always a joy to see Pissflaps score or Bellend make a great save.

‍That is shit, will lose all faith in the game. 

‍Oyston has sold up to a local investor and the gates are still around 3k. Joke.

‍I would say that's realistic given that they're in the 3rd division. It's 3 times what they are getting now

‍Yeah but I played Bradford. They would have brought a big following ;)

‍If I remember right researchers just input an estimated average attendance for the first season and it fluctuates from there probably off club reputation, which changes based on promotion/relegation, competition wins, player reputations at the club etc. I don't think there is any way to account for specific events (say if a chairman leaves the attendance will rise), that sounds like more of a new feature, rather than a bug fix, so I cant see it changing now. 

‍I think you are right Foggy. It needs to be something along the lines of Brexit. There is some stuff on that but you can understand them focusing on that rather than an individual club.

It's just a bit frustrating as it ruins the Blackpool experience. My finances are insecure and they won't get better on 3k gates even though Oyston has left!

‍Blackpool being a complete shitshow and so unique compared to other clubs has caused FM problems trying to replicate them. When I told them we were giving Bojan 90 quid a week in the Championship they didnt believe me at first cause they thought it would be illegal.

‍ive somehow got us into the championship play offs 3rd season with lots of debt and selling best players every year to cut the deficit, currently got 4 youth products in the starting XI. Certainly a challenge.

‍Blimey you have done well. Currently 4th in League One but can't see it lasting.

‍Not sure if it will last but currently second in first season. Fonz is on fire.

Had a bit of time to finally finish my first season. Was in the top 2 for majority of season  but faded towards the end. Ended up playing Sunderland in the play off final and lost on pens. They equalised in the 90+3 to take it to extra time. Then lost on pens. Distraught and going to take some effort to do a second season. 

Trying to get back in to FM but might wait for the transfer update before starting a new Blackpool game. 

What tactics/starting line up you guys using?

I use the following.


Grow up you're a fucking adult.

I've not played it since my last post. The same thing happens everytime. I buy it, do one season and then never touch it again! Oh to have free time again. 

I just did 4-3-3 pretending I was Ollie. Nearly won promotion though. Delfouneso was the boy. 

New winter update is now live. Blackpool are Oyston free in this edition.
Amazing, worth getting it just for that!
Will see if there is an update. Oyston left in mine but gates were still low. 
Yeah interested to see if theyve changed attendance rates, I bought the editor alongside so adjusting them manually before the update.
Ahh I'm on the tablet edition so no editing options. Bought it when it came out but not played it since. Second child hasn't helped!
