The last was actually through my own academy... quite amazing since my youth training is adequate... Since I'm only Stirling Albion, he's awesome.

Thank god Regens seem to work this time round!

How is it a bug ??
Anyway yeah iv noticed that there is a lot more young players with great potential coming from scottish teams and iv also nicked a few gems from bohemians in ireland for my celtic team.

They are pretty good. I've heard good things about regens this year, and I can't wait to get my first intake of youth players at the start of my 2nd season at Leeds. Fingers crossed I get a couple (or more) of shining stars...

Its a bug because in Scotland for some reason they are promoted but not signed to a contract. That means no compensation fees are paid... It also means that if you get in early, their reputation is very low so a team like mine can promise them first team footy and actually get them!

I guess it'd make quite a good challenge, steal all the youth that Scotland produces every year and see how far you get in europe/international with the same team for both...

Didn't know that was a bug. I remember signing a really good 15yr old from Rangers to Manchester United (won't name names - he wasn't a regen) for absolutely nothing.

Gotta say though, regens look MUCH better this year! \o/

I've just discovered a problem..... My idiotic chairman sells them when he gets a reasonable bid... rubbish! Its all part of the game though I suppose.

Hmm... I notice all your newgens are only one footed...

Neb

250k.... Apparently its the most amount of money the clubs ever had offered for one of its players...

Its my own fault though, he's the lad that came through my own academy, he was down as a 'hot prospect' instead of 'indispensible'... they probably would have been scared off (or at least offer a shed load more) if he had been.

Ah well, 'tis but a game

Thats a good point, I hadn't spotted that before.

Probably down to me scanning their attributes and offering contracts to any that look good. I guess if they are two footed their attributes wouldn't look so good so I would have just skipped over them...

I must remember to check their feet next time!

They usually get better at using their other foot with time.

James Mackay moved to doncaster for 250k + 40% of future fees, so not that bad I suppose... The funny thing is though (it must be a bug as it can't happen in real life) when I click on personal under general happiness it says that

"Feels he might be good enough to play for England after being in the country 5 years"

Not only has he turned his back on the club that brought him through the youth ranks, it seems he's turned his back on his country of birth too!

Well that's not necessarily a bug. it *COULD* happen in real life providing he's not played for his own country yet, just doesn't happen too often (at least recently). But there must be examples in the past of Irish, Welsh or Scottish people who've moved to england at a young age and got into the English national team instead?

I thought there was an agreement that a national of one home country couldn't play for another. The only way this would be possible was if he had an English parents or Grandparents.

This lad wasn't scottish and english (as he would be if he had english parents), he was just scottish. Its the fact that he had to be there for 5 years, that implies that he would need to gain nationality. He can only play for another home country if he was born with links to it.

A non british player is different.

That's for England only then?

Normally you can call them up when they gain nationality and never played for the National Team (a-team) but from what I know in FM it's if they never played international football.

Maybe this should be logged as a bug?

I've already posted it in the Bugs forum and its been noted.

I think the issue is to do with new youth players not being treated like youth, so they have no contract. I also can train them as full team members not 'youth'.

I thought I'd mention it here, as its quite good fun to take advantage of!
