I'm not sure this is a bug so I've written it here.
I have, in 16 years of playing FM17 (game time) never had the option to ask for an improvement to my training facilities. I have upgraded my youth recruitment, youth acaedmy and expanded my stadium to the max, but still have 'poor' training facilities. It's getting to the point where I'm a big club now and really need something decent. Playing PL football and also Europa League, so it's really frustrating.
Is there something I'm missing? Or could this be a bug? Or is it just my team (FC United) that won't allow it?
