    Default Question about newgens ?

    I just noticed something about my 2 longterm games, and was wondering are some newgens appearing on every game ?

    In my Man City (year 2017) game i had an Italian player named Robert Gandola, which was a defender, of nice quality. Then now in my Stevenage (year 2026) game, the same newgen appeared, Robert Gandola, Italian defender again..

    Is this possible or is it pure luck ?

    Are you sure it's the same player? Does it have the same attributes?

    That's a common Italian name so I'd say it's pure coincidence..

    In my game there is an Italian CB names Roberto Gandola. I have called him up to play for England though as he was eligible!

    Your guy have an "o" on the end of his first name? 'Cos my guy does

    I also have some funny name "dualities", for example, I have two English lads names Phil Moss and Jack Moss, I have spanish LB and RB named Angel & Cristian, I have a LM and a RM named Dottori and Fattori, and I have two defenders named.... Merry and Moody.. one happy and one is sad

    Also my two best CM's are named Dujic and Zukic....maybe I am looking into it way too much but I find it funny that all my partnerships have similar names.

    Newgens are unique to every save.

    A newgen might share some details with a newgen in another save but he is a different unique player.

    In my games both are named Roberto Gondola, so yeah its with an o, and they have almost similiar stats, and actually both are born at same day! 7/4! One at 1994, other one at 1995

    Why not name one "XXXX" then the other use his real name "XXXX XXXXX"? I had to do that in Fm08, had two Ramon's so named one his real name, Ramon Sousa.

    Roberto Gandola works for SI. Names of people that work for SI pop up regularly as regens in peoples' games. If you search 'faceinthegame' in the search bar in your FM game, you'll get all the regens (either staff or players) who have a name of an SI employee. Others you can expect to see are Craig Hunter, Phillip Rolfe, Neil Brock, etc.

    Sorry for bumping this thread up.

    I'm the real life Roberto Gandola.

    I don't work for SI but I passionately help them to make the game... this is why I was inserted as a newgen and I spawn everytime in some of your games.
