football manager 2015 LAMPS

Come on, let’s see a smile.

Grumpy Frank Lampard will no longer automatically hate it in New York, thanks to this new update for Football Manager 2015. Prior to the release of version 15.2.0, Lampard and David Villa would automatically be unhappy after joining New York City FC.

Somebody at Sports Interactive has reset the parameter to “come on Frank, it’s New York, cheer up son.” So that should now be fixed.

Granted, there are other fixes in this latest Football Manager 2015 update – like improvements to lower league marking and more goalkeeping tweaks – but I’m sure everybody was concerned about poor Frank’s state of mind.
