kg88pks

Leave to physio: out for 6 to 11 years. Or give him an injection: he can play next game, but then he will be out for 9-14 years.


Mikhailing

What the fuck did they inject him with, glue?


LoneLibRight

Glue made from the last guy who got the same injury probably


xkufix

So Phil Jones has finally been put out of his misery?


scorpionballs

Where is Phil Jones these days? Is he still at Man U??


BLKKMORRIS

Collecting dust


ScreaminDetroit

Yep signed a new contract back in may


scorpionballs

Signed …a new contract? That can’t be right


ScreaminDetroit

[Yep](https://www.manutd.com/en/news/detail/phil-jones-signs-new-contract-with-manchester-united)


roboticninjafapper

Bruh that was 2 years ago not “back in may” lol


ScreaminDetroit

Whoops my bad didn’t realize it was that long ago. Still stupid


scorpionballs

Insanity. Has he been injured? Don’t remember the last time I saw him play


ScreaminDetroit

Nope. His last match I can remember was in 19/20 season. Don’t remember who against, but he had a shocker, hasn’t been seen since. It’s why is new contract was so baffling.


byama

injection for sure eheh


buttlovingpanda

Just make it a testimonial game


ShanghaiCowboy

I read this in Seth Rogens voice, I think it was the eheh


JGQuintel

Hahahaha


Suicycho69

Hahahhahahahahahaha


BurgoFc14

Are you sure he has any ankle ligaments left if he outs for that long


RogerRamjet_

Must be growing some new ones for him in a lab somewhere


InSicK

They are just replacing the whole leg at that speed.


Starbase503

Geez, it took less time to rebuild Steve Austin, the Six Million Dollar Man, way back in the 1970s


geordiesteve520

They’re sending him to Wakanda for that operation


PM_ME_UR_G00CH

Pretty sure stem cells are quite a bit faster than that


Diss1dent

Well they were literally pulled out from his feet. He will have to generate growth again using stem cell technology. Shit takes time.


jagoble

Dude got reverse Pinocchio'd.


Oggo28872

Oh whoops my game crashed!


mcphonz

It does it every time someone gets an injury like this. Suspicious.


u_e_s_i

Nah it’s just irrefutable proof that god exists and watches over FM players


MuricanDeathTriangle

Yeah, there's occasionally some crazy bullshit injury or completely out of balance circumstance that happens in this game. Like when 7 of your first XI all get ruptured ligaments in the same week of training, 4 days before a semifinal.


AccomplishedClue5381

Even after 11 years out he'll have a few seasons left in him. He'll just need a few games in the reserves to get back up to match fitness


r0lF_RuTiN_

pace: 5


daze24

can you not give him an injection?


scawel

yeah, lethal dose to end his suffering


RoberTakiFirminamino

The player or the manager?


scawel

Both


oSoulix

Yes


Into_the_web

Hahahhahahahah


_KalStormblessed_

You can tell him to focus on recovery and come back stronger!


AskyReddit

*Strength 21*


SpringyFredbearSuit

Promise to give him a fair amount of playing time after he returns


VibingToSilence

This is what happens when you buy physios on Wish.com


Itz_Galaxium

Or even worse, from Arsenal


XXISavage

Pour one out for Diaby's dead career.


Martin48705

Had him on FM20, was a beast for some time in Bayer Leverkusen, but I wanted to get rid of him for cheap since he forgot how to score, had to wait a year and a half to sell him for a decent price, fml.


Wicksy1994

Ahh yes. Abou Diaby healed so well he became a 22 year old winger called Moussa Diaby


u_e_s_i

Oh yeah I’ve heard of him, apparently he’s George Weah’s nephew!


ResponsibilityOk235

Don't let Souness hear that


gianini10

Pretty sure he's available as a coach in FM20. Could be wrong though.


rahgael

Not the same diaby mate.


Martin48705

Oh, f me.


1MorePint

Last season's Real Madrid would like a word.


hodge91

As a Bristol City fan who had an Arsenal physio join this is legit


Luminos50

As a Liverpool fan who’s club in real life hired an ex-Arsenal physio and then all of our injuries happened last season.... this is legit


BrewHouse13

It wasn't just the one ex-Arsenal physio either was it? I thought there was a few.


Mojo2XL

Probably an ex-Tottenham physio too


zaclon17

Mate please make a save and holiday till he’s ok to see how he got on


nexustron

literally how? did they pull so much of his ankle ligaments out that he lost his leg and now they are growing him a new leg in the lab or something?


cyrenia47

Well it's Moukoko I bet they'd create a fucking bodysuit for him if he needed it


Bergkamp77

Plenty of time to increase that goalkeeper rating then


SucculentMoisture

Yeah I think it’s fair to edit that injury out


timtickle761

I can never play with the in game editor. It’s too tempting.


TheDaftGang

Yeah. I promised myself that I wouldn't buy the editor this year. I ended up buying it to change my Manager's name. Because I made a mistake in it and it took me a while to see it, like a full season lmao (yeah I'm pretty fucking dumb I know). I didn't want to restart a save or create a new manager, so I bought the IG editor just to change my name. Anyway, I used the editor so far only to check the PA of my wonderkids in my youth facilities. But it already bugs fucked up my game, because I now know which Regen I should surely focus on developing (I got one at 186 PA and on at 175 I think), so I know I will focus heavily on them and I'm pretty sure they are going to bomb. But I also have a 5 stars potential Regen who ended up having a 115 PA, so not worth my time (I am with Olympique de Marseille, trying to take the place of PSG in France). And already knowing what those Regen will be in the future completely kill the thrills of the unknown. Anyway, all of this to say, we should have an option to block the use of the IG once we are in the save. I am too tempted to look at the PA and secret attributes of the young players etc... But I don't want to do it.


timtickle761

I ruined almost every other save with the in game editor last year. Mostly because the game is stupid. Like not being able to sell one of the best players in the world for less than £50m


Hampsonivich

I only buy it when it comes to this time of year and I've either burnt myself out on my main save or I just want to try something. I never build super teams with it, I just use it to get rid of deadweight at a club or change one of the youth academy prospects to me and increase his potential to 200 and see how well I can develop him


timtickle761

That’s what I usually do but I haven’t done it the last few saves and it feels more rewarding. Are we dirty for using it?


Hampsonivich

Nah its good fun, I also clear up long term injuries, but again, only in my end of year saves or experiments I do, I remember a few years ago I downloaded a database that put all the legends back in as wonderkids and it was really fun, especially as some didn't develop correctly so Van Basten turned out for Hibs and Napoli were a global superpower


timtickle761

Tbh it’s what this game is all about. It’s essentially the funnest spreadsheet ever made


Into_the_web

I downloaded a retro database on year 2000/2001. All the good old players are there like Zidane, Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Figo, etc. Really got me so hooked


TheBdougs

> Are we dirty for using it? It's a single player game, how it makes you feel is top priority.


four_four_three

You can disable it


timtickle761

Only pre-game. You cannot disable it whilst the save is up and running.


four_four_three

Yeah you can, in Preferences


timtickle761

Pretty sure you can’t.


four_four_three

There’s an option that says “Show In-Game Editor” or something in the Interface part I think? Just try it, it’s there ffs!


timtickle761

Yeah that’s referring to the in game editor symbol. I don’t need to look - I’ve played this release for about 1500 hours and already looked into it myself when I messed a save up.


four_four_three

But then you can’t click it. It’s the best you can do


TheDaftGang

Really ??? Once you already started your save ??? How ? I didn't know that ! I thought you could do it only when starting a save !


four_four_three

You can grey out the symbol so you can’t click it in Preferences


TheDaftGang

Found it ! Thanks. You're a life savior I think !!! Love u


ScreaminDetroit

I only use it for good. I use it to make Man City, PSG, and RB Leipzig dirt poor and watch them fall into irrelevance where they belong.


Babladuar

Eh my computer always shut down on it self after bullshit like this happened. I don't know why 🤔


A_Kafumotekuzuki

What the? More like his entire career, he should just retire 😂


timtickle761

Mad thing is that even after 6 years of injury (in game) he will still probably turn out to be a very good striker at 23/24


Kaiserigen

He would start developing after 8 years of not moving, i doubt he will be any useful


timtickle761

Well, it’s a video game - so he would still be useful even after ‘not moving’ for 8 years. Not like he’s gonna develop type 2 diabetes and get obese


LusoAustralian

Player attributes decrease in game even after mid length injuries. He'd be ruined.


RWBrYan

It’s FM Mobile, he’ll be fine.


Guzuzu_xD

Looks like FM touch not Mobile right?


RWBrYan

Think you’re right actually, my mistake. Any idea if touch is as bad as mobile? Never tried it myself


Manaus125

Touch is fine. It's not as good as standard, but it's more in line with standard than mobile.


Guzuzu_xD

Ive only played standard and mobile unfortunately.


itsaaronnotaaron

I play touch on my Note 20 Ultra with the S Pen. If you have a large phone, it's playable but be prepared to get annoyed by your fat thumbs. Touch is far better than mobile though. It's closer to the original and doesn't have barebone mobile tactics, it uses the proper engine.


Martin48705

Much easier to win a UCL with a decent team on mobile, don't ask me how I know.


Every-Cattle-4221

Mobile: you just see dots moving around Touch: If you have a iPad buy it because it’s good for travelling and it’s almost as good as standard


timtickle761

Yuck


timtickle761

Yes, I’m aware of that. But he would likely still be able to become a good striker. Y’know what though? I don’t care. This is clearly a bug, or OP has used in-game editor. Glad my Moukoko is fit and healthy. Set to earn me £150m


thethinggoskraaa

pulled ankle ligament or pull everything off mate? haha


Soumerian

Just walk it off man


gamnog

I hope there is an option to use injections so he can play one more match.


Evern35

He had it amputated, now it’ll take 6-11 years for technology to make enough advances to cure him


ibrahim210105

Did they pull the whole foot straight off lmao


jamesatom25

\--.-.-.-.-.-.-.-. Is this a bug tho or is this intended lmao


Arathaon185

Must be a bug. They used to have career ending injuries up to 2012 but took them out. I had my 26 year old keeper get a neck injury and that was it he retired.


monkeybawz

That's the same injury that's kept me from winning champions leagues irl.


mikeynng

Pace: 16. I don't think so mate.


default_username1

This isn't real is it?


TheDaftGang

I think there might be a bug yeah.


Scary_Appeal_1137

Save scum understandable


Neekafour

Offer him a promise that he still has a place in the squad


HLV7064

I think SI should enable a function to send player to university for such long injury. He should be able to complete his phd for such injury and should increase some mental attributes as well.


Desperate_Shoulder48

Pat his leg


jbeggs06

Magic sponge time


MrBathroom

what the fuck? are the physios using sledge hammers??


Nuel398

"Pulled ankle ligaments" More like getting his leg chopped off and needed to grow a new one


zKerekess

Just walk it off


paulfeke

this is the only time you're allowed to scum save


Tuerto04

Holy shit this cracks me. Cant remember the last time I laughed so hard.


Dash-Fl0w

When it says pulled ankle ligaments, it means he pulled them out. They gone.


StrategicSheev

6 to 11 years is a pretty big difference. It could be 6 years or it could be almost double that. This is just the physio saying I have no idea.


MrBismarck

If you send him to a specialist you can probably cut that down to 5-7 years.


skullstrife

>uld be 6 years or it could be almost double that. This is just the physio saying I have no idea. LOL


johntheplaya

Just get the magic sponge and a bucket of water he will be fine


ClassicTree

Never seen anything like this 😂😂😂


archersrevenge

Magic Sponge time


SemajNotlaw7

He’ll be in his prime age when he returns to fitness to be fair 😂


Kaiserigen

This isnt real, right?


damn_username_taken

Dude you literally made my day😂laughed so hard seeing this


UmadLULW

For stuff like this, it is more than appropriate to save scum.


andrewyeong

Wait what? Can this actually happen?


[deleted]

I believe this could be the one time using the FM Editor would be allowed 💀


DOXDarkness

Wow :( This is sad


comfort_bot_1962

Don't be sad. Here's a [hug!](https://media.giphy.com/media/3M4NpbLCTxBqU/giphy.gif)

Nice!

Hope you have a great day!

:)


comfort_bot_1962

Nice!


Anbe17

Someone is having fun with the editor!


Aragorn008

Is there a way to add injuries in the editor?


Anbe17

Yes, in the pre-game editor. And you can edit existing injuries.


Aragorn008

How?


Anbe17

Open editor, load database, choose "injuries" in the meny to the left. To add: Choose "add" in the bottom right corner To edit: Choose "add condition" and add the condition you want to search for, click and the injury you want to edit and edit it.


DrJackl3

How the frick did he choose Cameroon when he's a shoe in for Germany.


SevereDoughnuts

Is that you Ousmane Dembélé?


Boring_Ad_7144

How come he was injured in Dortmund Vs. Liverpool yet plays for Werder Bremen?


kg88pks

Looks like Dortmund terminated his contract due to the injury, then Werder signed him on free. They are building the future.


Boring_Ad_7144

Ah, honestly I hadn't realised you could sign somebody if they failed their medical (which obviously this guy would have). Fortunately have never been in the position to find out lol.


SlymDayley2

wet paper towel/sponge will do the trick


DOAFORAN

I wanna know how the fuck this guy is 17 and born in november '04.


IAmAceBoogie

I could be wrong but i'd assume its at least November '21 in this save... ​ but just a guess


nicoc77

Better than Dembele


itzztheman

did someone tear his ankle off or something


PapaBubba

Footballers these days, such divas smh


nkr0043

He's gone soft


Supermalt418

Wait wthhhh


relentlessapple

This cant be real... right?


Happy2403

Whaaaaat :O never saw that before


uknownick

Get ready for Baby Moukoko Jr showing up at your u18


winstr12

His ligaments https://youtu.be/CA6HNCPZAL0?t=19


brendangiblin99

This is the part we’re you rewind time (save scum it)


Teoichi

Will he got amputation and be available for paraolimics?


bizzys92

That Bravery attribute is going to take a big hit!


pemski13

Just ask him to reproduce. By the time he will heal Moukoko jr will be eligible for 1st team


GuendouziGOAT

Is this a glitch or real??


wheatie_87

Ouch. But hey, you got a 2-0 win over Liverpool! Congrats!


ufuk00

I'd love to see his comeback though


Nature-Fantastic

Ie and yes I will.


Itz_Galaxium

My man's stepped on a mine


kominsky

F


r_elwood

Get him signed up for a long term contract.


FakeNate

Get him out. Could barely head the ball ffs. /s


ArtOfDivine

God damn it


Gavvo888

Be sure to tell him his place in the first team won't be affected. 😂


Sierdto

Hahaha. This is fucking amazing


SnooDingo-

Damn that's some crazy stats for a 17 years old


89ox

tis but a scratch


ClickOk2784

I just had Fofana out for 8 months just for him to come back and within the first training session he pulled a groin from sprinting and is out for another 4 to 6 weeks. Then my game crashed 😂😂


SukMaBalz

Love how the ligaments are only pulled as well, not even torn completely…


alexmfcamara

F


[deleted]

Wtff how does this even happen. No way.


pinkunicornsftw69

I'd use the editor for this shit


waferboy

They probably did too make this post...


pinkunicornsftw69

I meant to remove this bullshit injury. Didn't know you can cause injuries with the editor?


pinkunicornsftw69

The injury description says during a match, so don't think it was done by the editor


BaconBear36

He’ll be back and suddenly be 4th choice


DeepLyingWinger

Lmao I call bullsh*t.. even full blown AIDS doesn’t take that long


HardwellM

Esto es increible XD


Aragorn008

What was the injury?


YnwaMquc2k19

Press F for this young lad.
