  1. Started reading this a couple of days ago and just caught up, you've done a brilliant job getting this far! How far do you intend to take it? Getting to the level of the bigger European clubs will be exceptionally difficult with only youth players but you aren't a million miles away!
  2. Just had a player leave for £1.2 million despite another team offering £2.7 million all up front. The offer that he went for was only 500k up front, another 700k over 12 months and some performance related fees that he's probably never going to attain anyway. Even with these fees it didn't add up to £2.7 million.
  3. The board accepting a transfer offer feature is so broken its laughable. Reject a 2 million offer then accept a 1.2 million one the following day??? Broken.
  4. It seems to happen pretty often IRL for what it's worth
  5. After thousands of hours of gameplay I just noticed him in my youth team. He's also absolutely dreadful so there's that
  6. Wasn't on deadline day and the transfer still took a few additional days to go through
  7. The board have twice told me "the offer has been withdrawn" only for it to not be and the player to leave. Am I missing something or this bugged?
  8. I think it's pretty clear Forshaw needs a bit of a boost. Certainly in passing. 13 passing for a player who has 90% passing accuracy in the PL (among the very best in the league) just isn't high enough. Ben Gibson and Victor Valdes should be the best players at the club in their respective positions but currently they don't even start if the AI is in charge.
  9. I believe it's the latter
  10. They have been playing Euro qualifiers and friendlies. I applied for it and never heard back
  11. I'm playing as Gibraltar United and when the national team job game up I decided to apply for it. About 2 years later they still haven't made an appointment. Is this a known issue?
  12. I try to turn AFC Telford into world champions every year on FM, found it easier on this FM than on any other
  13. Not a small squad by choice! 3rd season in the Champions League and about my 5th or 6th in the PL after straight promotions to it with AFC Telford and we still have among the smallest wage budgets in the league despite challenging at the top. The board still refuse to build a new stadium so we are maxed out at 12,500 each week which is a pain and is really holding us back. They say the fan base isn't there yet when we ground shared with Wolves while in the Championship for a bit we were getting crowds of 20+k. Anyway rant over off to bed as we're away to PSG next and I can't face another defeat tonight and still retain my sanity
  14. I've threatened that before with no success so I don't want to risk being sacked. We've started the season with 5 straight defeats after finishing 2nd last and a CL semi final last season which is just marvelous
  15. Yeah they've told me no to transfer and wage rises, my squad is decimated by injuries and was tiny prior to that yet they expect me to achieve a top 4 place with barely a penny to spend
