    Default Legend status removed when left club

    Managed Tottenham for about 15 years.Got a new stadium named after me and i was named as a legend on the club information screen.

    Recently resigned to manage Norwich in the Championship,and as soon as i had left my name was no longer featured in the legend bar at Tottenham??

    Did a search on this and this was a known problem in FM09. I also understand once you leave your actually considered as hated by the club?!

    Is this going to be fixed as it's quite an bad bug imo.

    It is irritating. IRL when a manager who is well liked leaves a club, he always gets nearly always gets a warm reaction when he goes back, apart from Owen Coyle obviously.

    Using an in-game editor, you can see that you go to 100 on disliked people at the club once you leave.

    It won't be, it's been known for years.

    It is annoying. Once you leave a club you aren't allowed to be a legend there. That's stupid and they should change it.

    Easy problem to fix, only needs a little coding. Lets hope they fix it for 10.3, no reason they shouldn't.

    It should depend on the circumstances of your leaving. If you resign or run your contract down and take a job at a bigger club immediately (say, within three months), you should be hated. Likewise, if you leave straight for a bigger job. However, if you are sacked, or genuinely resign, or genuinely run your contract down, your reputation should remain intact.

    Well if you go and take a bigger job it shouldn't always go down. Say you get 3 straight promotions to League 1 then Man United come calling? You'd get decent compensation for your old club and any fans would understand that. Still be a legend.

    It's not really a fix or a bug because it's put in there deliberately. I think it's there to stop an unrealistic situation where a manager would be sacked or resign and then be immediately offered his old job back.

    How do you not see that as a bug?

    surely the AI should be able to determine who they just hired. Also given a period of time most legendary managers return to their initial club so that should be a possibility.

    I think it is. I have left several different clubs and am still a favoured personnel on all the ones that I was when I was there. I am still a legend with Juventus after resigning and moving to another club.

    It is annoying. I really don't think SAF will be the #1 most hated when he finally decides to retire. Heck, I don't think Fulham fans want to put a hit on Roy Hodgson, even fresh off his departure.

    it is the most stupid thing in the game. if you get on the favoured personell list then you should stay there unless u leave to manage a rival.

    On FM 09 it was impossible to even get onto the favoured personell list. I was at Bristol City for 20 years and took them into the premiership, won the league 6 times, including 4 in the space of 5 years. the champions league 7 times and the fa once and i still wasnt anywhere near the favoured personell list. Yet 9 of the players i signed got put on it, including someone on the club legends list.

    difficult, but not impossible. I took braintree to champions league success in FM09 and became a legend though have never had a stadium named after me...

    Look how many times Steve Coppell has returned to Crystal Palace due to his legendary status there. Losing it is ridiculous.

    Also, it's so much harder to gain legendary status for lower league clubs, if you win the Premier League just once with Norwich irl you would undoubtedly become a legend there or a high end Icon at the very least, but you don't even get on the Favoured Personnel list. If you got Havent & Waterlooville promoted from the Conferenced North to League One you would become a Legend, but you don't even get on the Favoured Personell list. I'd say if you promoted pretty much any team up 3 divisions you would at the very least become an Icon, usually a legend irl.

    I can understand that if you win the league with ManUtd or Chelsea you wouldn't become a legend, but surely the reputation/honours list and history of the club can determine this?

    As far as I can see this has been fixed. In my save, I am a legend at two different clubs (Spurs and Frankfurt). I am managing neither.
