View Full Version : Who buys all your players!?

I’m managing Stafford and have noticed an annoying trend. The last 4 players I have been forced to sell as the Chairmen felt ‘the offer was too good to turn down’ have been bought by Burnley in the league below in League 1.

For starters each player has cost within 1.2m to 1.6m (none if the values I considered anywhere near good enough) and of course being Stafford its all very well having the money in the bank but attracting players of a suitable quality is near on impossible.

So a couple of grievances really, where are Burnley getting the money from, why are my players happy to drop down divisions and why is the chairmen continually annoying me with this ‘too good to turn down’ rubbish! GGGGGrrrrrrrrrrrr :mad:

I'm managing Werder Bremen and Fiorentina so I haven't been "forced" to sell any player yet as far as I can remember, but it's all the usual suspects in Serie A and La Liga plus Lyon and some English clubs who keep coming in for my players and I keep rebuffing most of them.

I saw the strangest transfer story I've ever seen in FM though yesterday - Rimini (in Serie A and doing a cracking job, but still a tiny club with a now ~12,000 capacity stadium after a few upgrades and only okay fiinances) were claimed to be interested in signing £14.5 million rated Frank Ribery from Bayern Munich! Unsurprisingly the player himself quahsed such rumours, claiming if he was to leave Bayern he is sure there are better options than Rimini!

I've noticed that one club is usually interested in several of my players at a time.

With Barca it's Inter.

Previously I had Liverpool interested in loads of my players when I was AC
