  1. Thanks for pointing this out. @Dean Gripton any thoughts on this? I've just checked and the global ban is set until 2022, he is eligible to sign (which I suppose is fine) but he is also eligible to play competitive games in England, in my test.
  2. Well, I didn't do it on purpose, I gave it my best shot, but we stayed down. Lost 1-0 against Watford, so QPR pipped us to 2nd place on the final day. We comfortably beat Forest over two legs (4-1) to get to the play-off final. The final didn't go as well - we took the lead and then threw it away in extra-time. Every cloud has a sliver lining, an all that..
  3. Is it acceptable to intentionally bottle promotion? I'm currently managing Preston, took over midway through the first season after starting unemployed. We're now into the second season and the league looks like the below image, surprisingly. Loanees Rhian Brewster and Morgan Gibbs-White aside, we're not ready for the top flight, at all.
  4. Excellent - thanks for that. Will it revert to four relegation spots in League One?
  5. Does anybody have advanced rules, for England, that mirror what is in the game? I want to put 24 teams in League One, without going through all the advanced rules.
  6. Not quite sure how I managed it, but the second half of the season we were fantastic - managed a few good home wins against Liverpool and Man Utd, and even a win that resulted in Guardiola getting the sack at City. Probably going to struggle to keep hold of my star player. I turned down a bid of £35m from PSG last summer, but this season he's managed 12 goals and 14 assists in the league. Not bad for a £1.1m signing from Lech. The board have announced plans for a new stadium. They had originally planned on extending (by a measly 1,000 seats) but have seemingly chang
  7. Things you love to see: We're doing better than I thought we would be so far. We're making the most of games against teams around us in the league, but as always in FM, I seem to end up with a three game run of fixtures against the big sides, and the inevitable drop in morale follows. I've around £20M of my budget remaining (net spend so far around minus £20M) and a decent amount of wages now, thanks to the above.
  8. I had a few issues with the game crashing, so decided to re-download all facepacks, logos, kits, etc, and also move my data location in the process. Since then I have been having issues with the dark skin - the facepack shows, but logos/kits don't (even original logos don't appear). When using the standard or light skins everything works succesfully, but I don't like using either of these skins. Any advice?
  9. Overall I'm struggling with my transfer business going into the Premier League season, but I've managed to bring in Amine Gouiri, Fedde de Jong and a steady looking regen goalkeeper from Benfica on free transfers.
  10. Promotion to the Premier League for Notts County. Absolutely no idea how we'll cope in the top division, but we'll give it a crack.
  11. Received the following crash dump: FM 2020 v20.4.1.1363262 (2020.05.23 21.09.52).dmp DxDiag.txt
  12. Are you going for the realistic approach of overloading on central midfield players too? Give Oduor plenty of game time, and you'll sell him for a fortune.
  13. Secured back-to-back promotions with Notts County, after winning the league again. We're now into League One, which I'm expecting to be a lot tougher than the past two seasons. I received a healthy transfer budget of around £1M, but I've mainly opted for free transfers. The pick of the bunch being Matt Smith and Josh Knight who took some persuading (and relatively low release clauses). We've started the season well - currently sat 6th in the table. Also pulled of an upset by beating Everton in the Carabao Cup, and we now have a favourable home tie against Portsmouth in th
  14. I finished my first season with Notts County, comfortably top of the league. I haven't managed at this level for years, so I wasn't sure if I should adapt from my usual possession based style. I stuck to what I knew best, and despite some early doubts, it worked very well. Enzio Boldewijn was the star player, as expected, with 16 goals from the right wing. Plenty of interest in him, but no bids ever came in. Ricardo Campos was probably the pick of the signings in the first season, along with Issam Ben Khemis, who I've now sold to Southend. Campos is proving a steady back-
  15. Looks like he was some player for League Two, but when did David Luiz become a no-nonsense centre back?!
  16. Managed to take Sunderland to a replay in the second round of the FA Cup, and then beat them 1-0. Ended up with this..
  17. Try Barnsley - restrictions on signing players over the age of 23, although in the same league as Blackburn and Boro. I'm enjoying my Notts County save, so far.
  18. I was actually thinking of Notts County whilst walking the dog. I'll give them a go.
  19. Looking to start a long-term game in League Two, or the Conference. Any recommendations?
  20. I'm creating a custom English database, but wanting to keep the under-23 & under-18 formats as they are. I've created B teams for Chelsea and Man City, so would like them excluding from the under-23 leagues. Any help appreciated.
  21. I've updated my driver now (thought it was already up to date). I've managed to increase the graphics back to high quality (3D options aside - I only play in 2D classic), and having no problems. The hibernating is now becoming an issue when not playing FM too, so it's fair to say it's not really a bug for you guys. Cheers for the help.
  22. I had already updated to 20.4. I’ve reduced the graphic settings to medium and haven’t received any further error messages when starting a match. Still having the hibernation issue. Will post the dxdiag file later. Thanks for the response.
