On FM09, I'd got to the reputation where I was allowed to recommend individual clubs to be a feeder club. But since the takeover 3 years ago I can no longer do it, I'm guessing my reputation reset or something, but probably a bug.
you can, there was a bug on release that the board would say you can not allow you to. with the 12.1.1 update they made that bug disappear. that being said before the patch everytime i asked they were going to let me. after the patch i had to get my rep up a bit more before they would allow me to choose.
I've been in charge of a Belgium team for 4-5 years now. I cancelled the feeder clubs already signed up as I wanted to preserve every penny. I'm now a top league challanger. However, for the last 3 years of trying, the club have never found me a feeder to sign with. I have several leagues running. I've never been asked to propose a team either. Oddly, I have several parents, some from the same league. Would this be a bug?
