  1. Past hour
  2. I want to be able to see a clearer overview of Agreed Playing time by position and formation. Could be a separate screen or done in a similar way to the team report. Would make squad panning so much easier.
  3. Update: It just said Oyarzabal has returned from "a leave of absence" in Spain and now it works properly a week later, so I suspect this was the issue!
  4. I've played multiple versions of FM over the past 15 years and I always had that same issue with Real Madrid every season for the Super Cup. I just tried the 2017 version and could not get past the Super Cup, as there aren't enough players available. I moved guys around from the B team but they are unavailable as well. Only 9 are available and there's no way around it. I am not playing again after going though preseason planing for nothing. Worst bug encountered in a game.
  5. Is public beta 2.4 the last update before 3.0? Surely an official 2.4 will be released right? If it is the last update before march.... might just go play some other game
  6. It was an Euros Qualifier against San Marino and he was subbed on in the 73rd minute! No assists/goals but he completed 17 out of 17 passes!
  7. Today
  8. You guys were all helpful, thank you! I forgot about starting at regular season. I'd still like to see a single game coach now mode for the base game. In addition to learning tactics, it would be cool to manage a team versus a team you want to manage against for one single game to see how the matchup would play out, versus having to play a full career mode campaign just to get there. @Lucas I already have FM Touch download. I am looking at the main menu screen, where is it at? Or did I confuse you about what I'd like to see?
  9. For the past few years, a file I created has league names that disappear after a few seasons. Is there anything that would cause this behavior in the settings? I suspect I just need to rebuild the file from scratch, but wondered if anyone else had ever seen an edited file where the league names vanish and become blank. (I have the editor, so I can fix it, but not sure why it happens.)
  10. And there are comparative statistics of 2 files on the number of injuries? Standart FM20 vs Reduced Frequency vs Realistic Injures.
  11. I'm updating this today. The problem is I mistakenly made some clubs "all-star clubs" which was just an accidental tick. I'm going to release a new version of the file with that fixed and hopefully it'll make teams manageable again.
  12. This might be the case, as I always play with a large db. Still, I think there is something wrong with the transfer logic there. It's not like Liverpool said, "Let's not buy Van Dijk/Alisson for 70+ million because we can get Vestergaard and Guaita for a fraction of that price."
  13. cheers buddy ..if you need earlier files like 2 or 3 files before the one i sent you i can provide those too if the one you have does not work
  14. Per title, season finished and multiple players were jaded and recommended to be sent on holiday before beginning pre season so sent 7+ away for 2-4 weeks. Club organised a training camp during the time period which they are on holiday and as such they were ineligible to be registered for the training camp and as soon as I submitted the camp squad, a number of players were unhappy at being left out of the squad despite them being on holiday for the duration of the training camp. Will attach images and a copy of the save file before the players raise their concerns to me. edit: cannot add my save file as it exceeds the maximum upload size of the post.
  15. Hello everyone, it’s been a while since I started a proper thread. About Searching The Stats: STS is a way of playing the game by recruitment players only base on their statistics and form, while not paying attention to their actually attributes. Some of you may remember that I had a similar save back in FM18: While back then I started unemployed and without badges and reputation, this time I intend to make this save a little bit more personal and start the journey in my hometown. Also this time I may pay attention to 3 attributes that are not reflected in stats but that are easily spotted in real life, those are: first touch, bravery and determination. In short, I will try to build a strong squad around statistics and try to change my hometown team fate (at least in the game) because right now goes through a disastrous management. Welcome to Romania. Welcome to Iași A brief history The City Iași (UK: /ˈjæʃi/ YASH-ee; FR: Jassy or Iassy; GER: Jassy; IT: Jassi), is the second largest city in Romania and the seat of Iași County. Located in the historical region of Moldavia, Iași has traditionally been one of the leading centres of Romanian social, cultural, academic and artistic life. The city was the capital of the Principality of Moldavia from 1564 to 1859, then of the Romanian United Principalities from 1859 to 1862, and the capital of Romania from 1916 to 1918 (during the WW1 when Bucharest was under German occupation). Located in the North-East of Romania, Iași used to be the crossroads place of the historic trade routes that passed through Moldavia coming from the Kingdom of Poland, Habsburg Monarchy, Tsardom of Russia, and Constantinople. Home to the oldest Romanian university and to the first engineering school, Iași is one of the most important education and research centres of the country, and accommodates over 60,000 students in 5 public universities. The social and cultural life revolves around the Vasile Alecsandri National Theater (the oldest in Romania), the Moldova State Philharmonic, the Opera House, the Iași Athenaeum, a famous Botanical Garden (the oldest and largest in Romania), the Central University Library (the oldest in Romania), the high quality cultural centres and festivals, an array of museums, memorial houses, religious and historical monuments. By its placement (built on seven hills with altitudes varying between 50m and 400m), Iași resembles Rome and falls into the select category of legendary cities so called: "City of the 7 hills". Who wants to discover Iași will enter here as through a huge gateway to the history of the Romanian nation. In Iași "every stone speaks of the past". The Team Fotbal Club Politehnica Iași, commonly known as Politehnica Iași, or simply Poli Iași, was founded on 27 April 1945 by a group of students. The club was established at the beginning as Sportul Studențesc Iași and first received the name of Politehnica one month later (Asociația Sportivă Politehnica Iași), named after the Gheorghe Asachi Technical University of Iași. They played in the first league for 28 seasons during the periods: 1960–61, 1962–1967, 1968–1972, 1973–1981, 1982–1990, 1995–96 and 2004–2010. In all this time their best position in the league was only 6th in 1965–66. The home stadium is Emil Alexandrescu Stadium, placed on Copou Hill next to Botanical Garden - a beautiful place to chill and watch football- and has a capacity of 11.390. Not having a proper owner in all this years, being financed by the county council and the city hall, the club was always the subject of corruption and blackmail. Almost all the mayors took advantage of the citizen’s love for sport and football. In this manner the club became a political machine: with every relegation the promises of promotion has appeared and with every promotion the blackmail of cutting down the funds and going down again. The club slipped into a nasty game for personal fame, power and votes. In the season 2009-2010 the bubble of lies exploded after the club relegated in the second league. With 3M euro accumulated debts during the years, the club has forced to declare bankruptcy. Massive protests began in town demanding the county council and the mayor to resign. Being under pressure they started quickly to find a solution and in august that year, Tricolorul Breaza merged with Navoby Iași and formed a new team ACSMU Politehnica Iași that took Tricolorul Breaza place in the second division and relocated in Iași, with the promises that someday the record and the history of the old FC Politehnica Iași team will be regain and transfer to the new one. In 2011 the club was forced to change his name to Clubul Sportiv Municipal Studențesc Iași being banned to use the name Politehnica, the old colors and the logo. The supporters split into two: those who didn't agreed with the presence of a new team in town, a team without historical name and record and so they started to boycott the games and those that for the love of football and city continued to come to stadium and support the new team. After 2 seasons, in 2012, the new team managed to promote to first league: They didn’t managed to stay up and relegated in 2013. In 2014 they promoted again and since then they are playing in the first league. In 2015-2016 they actually managed to qualify to Europa League even if they finished 7th because of the big financial problems of the other teams. Unfortunately they have been stopped in second qualifying round by Hajduk Split. On 11 July 2018, the club announced that it earned the right to use the FC Politehnica Iași logo and name, which was considered to be the first step in the plan of regaining the club's full identity, the next one being the recovery of their record. As you can see is a long and struggling history of a club that never managed to equal the greatness of the city. Being the second city in a country with over 19 million peoples this team should fight every year for winning the league. Present situation of the club Unfortunately even if we can use our real name and logo, without history, we are still a relatively new team formed in 2010. Also we still don’t have a proper owner and we are further at the mercy of the county council and the mayor. We are playing in the first league but the situation of the club right now is not so great. With 1.5M euro debts and 2 point away from relegation, the situation seems a little bit similar with the one in 2010. The only hope is the new manager –Mircea Rednic -appointed this winter. The county council has in project to build a new 20.000 seats stadium, but with so many promises during the years and with that debt, sorry to say, but I don’t believe this s*it. On paper it looks really nice, but let’s not forget that this year is an election year, if you know what I mean. The rules and goal As I said, I will bring in players only base of theirs stats and 3 attributes: first touch, bravery, determination. I will also pay attention to my scouts reports, of course; As usual I will “go on holiday” for 1 season before taking charge of the team so that I will have enough data to play with; I have attributes masked so that I will not be tempted to make any transfer decisions based on them and also I have disabled the first transfer window for a little bit of realism, to see where the team will situate at the end of the season without a proper summer transfer window (hopefully they will not get relegated); Even if I bombed you with so many details, it will not be a one-team save. I will try to win everything with Politehnica Iași but if something go wrong (and it is possible) and get sacked the save will continue as a journeyman type of save. This year I have started with my hometown team to have some extra motivation to play the game. I will try to implement my vision and also I have a personal transfer policy. Being the second city in the country and situated in one of the largest region, Moldavia, the area of selection is huge, so I will be looking: First - to grow and promote my own players from academy; Second - to bring in players born in the historical region of Moldavia (and here I include also our brothers from Republica Moldova); Third - if I can’t find any quality in my academy or region, I will bring in any Romanian players; And only in the end I will be looking at foreign players. We will not be an “Athletic Bilbao” kind of club, but I will be looking much more carefully in my yard first before making any move. In the next post I will take charge of the team, we will be looking at the situation of the club, we will analyze the squad and make our first shopping list. Cheers!
  16. I believe I was still able to sign one, though. So is this a bug where the rule is not being followed, or is the rule itself unclear?
  17. could not agree more ive ruined so many seasons cause of this
  18. Try DL with FB or WB on support. Tell him to stay wider and get further forward if he doesnt already have that instruction.
  19. Match day screen . I have managed to almost make it a full screen to enhance the match day experience. I also added past meetings back in to the tactics screen . Doing 2D and 3D kits always brings reality to the game.
  20. Best thing you can do is a bit long but effective which is to test tactics in friendlies. Save the game before you play, then screenshot match stats. Reload, try again. Do it 5 times for each tactic and watch on comprehensive highlights and look for patterns. Then tweak, rinse and repeat. It's not save scumming if it's for friendlies!
  21. I finally downloaded FM 2020 that I bought weeks ago. My introduction of Football Manager thus far has been TM Touch 2019. The full game is pretty overwhelming. I cannot say I am ready for that, and I may never be. I will probably play FMT 20 for my next save. Ten games into Barnet's third season in the Premier League -- and three games into Barnet's first ever EURO Cup competition. The overall ratings of my first team look OK, but I am disappointed that my neither of my strikers are team leaders. Our new giant fullback, 6-foot-4 Yilmaz Akgun, has a good overall rating, but he seems very inconsistent so far. He has performed very poorly in some games and he has yet to use his height effectively in set pieces. Monty needs to give him some special instructions for corners. Finally, I wanted to give a shout out to Work the Space on YouTube. I have been following his Tow Law Town (lower, lower league team) save on FM20, a series he calls Park to Prem.
  22. So when i got to the first division (Portugal), i got a B team. But its in a non league division (probably level 6). Does anyone know if my B team can be promoted to a playable league? I really need that team to play and be competitive so the players can improve, i have the in-game editor but cant switch places with another team.
  23. @curiousnootropics - Please don't post suggesting that SI staff should be replaced or sacked in the future, as such personal comments about staff are against the forum rules. I've hidden your post as a result.
