Requested a Feeder club, and was given the option to CHOOSE the feeder club!
is it a new feature for FM10.
No, been in the game for years (basicly from the edition feeders are introduced) You need the board's confidence though, so u'll have to be at the club for a few years and do well for the option to be there.
i found out that its better to let the board pick the feeder club for you because they ussually give you 4 clubs and you can make recommandation...the point is you choose the best of those four and you have guarantee you ll be able to form a link (or im just lucky???),but if you have to choose the club yourself you have to look at their reputation in editor and yet even low reputation clubs can refuse link and you have to wait 4 months or so to make another try
Trying for 6 seasons to get an extra feeder club, looks impossible, also when I ask the board they can't find anything, is there some kind of invisible maximum? I'm Juve, have 1 commercial link, 4 Italian and 2 European feeder clubs, I've seen clubs with tons more :s
I'm assuming that the clubs that you're targetting to be your feeder are significantly lower in reputation that your own? Not that I'm stating the obvious, but I'm probably right in thinking that Barcelona fans wouldn't be exactly delighted to find out that their club would be acting as a feeder to the might of, say, Shrewsbury Town!
