I'm very interested in this as having a son come through my youth team is something I've been wanting to happen since I forst heard about it in FM07.
But despite playing a shed load of seasons since then I'm yet to have a regen with my surname never mind one come through my youth ranks with my surname and me be their favourite personnel. My surname (Hopper) is not even that rare I don't think, but every time I stick in the search field it comes back with no results, and I'm now in 2024 with Gateshead.
I'm starting to wonder if the whole son thing is a myth. There was a lot of talk about it in '07 but I haven't heard of it happening to many people in '08/ Perhaps a few people with fairly common surname happened to have a youth player come through the ranks who coincidentally had the same surname as them and also had them as their favoured personnel, like other youth players can.
I'd like to hear something official on this as if it can happen I think it's an excellent little feature.
