  1. Cheers for that. I've altered the injury end date to 23/8/21. Hopefully it gets in in time.
  2. It won't change until FM23 mate, with it being a non playable league.
  3. Unfortunately, Transfermarkt isn't one of our reliable sources for DoBs, bud. We already know that they're off with Rocco Vata's date of birth and we know it sometimes takes our randomly generated DoBs, as the players DoB, so we'll need to go with the random, any birthday before 31.8.2005 option, until it goes up on a more reliable source. Sorry.
  4. Now that we've ruled out the database size, the problem of the players missing is due to their age. They just have a Year of birth of 2005 entered in the database, as we don't have a concrete Date of Birth, so because of the 16 by September rule, the games not extracting them with the fear of them being to young. If the players have played for the B team in July or August, I think we can safely assume they're 16 (as as you say, I'm sure you need to be 16 to play up here) and we can add a 'latest DoB of 31/8/2005' to them.
  5. Thank you. Its what we ask. Play and see how he grows. If he doesn't then its something we can look at.
  6. Mod not researcher. Opinion on 2016 attributes and match engine, not 2020 attributes, match engine and research guidelines.
  7. Ah Robby McCrorie, I don't want to hear that name again for a while but we no doubt will . I can't remember a player that has divided opinion in the research team such as Robbie and that includes both our Rangers and Livi' researchers. It would have been a concenus, of all 3 in rating him, though Ter's opinion holds highest regarding the potential (and obviously Stuart). McCrorie was performing as a Gordon Banks/Andy Goram love child at the start of testing, he was the CM supakeepa, so as I say, there's been alot of talk and discussion regarding him internally.
  8. So now you realise that EVERY POST YOUVE POSTED HAS BEEN ABOUT BALANCE 10 and your argument was wrong, you throw a tantrum and try to change what you were arguing about in the first place to make us look the eejits. Gotcha. You maybe NOW have an argument when we're talking about strength as he is a brick but a 14 at his age is a great attribute rating, plenty room to grow in game as he gets older just as he should irl. Now if his strength isn't rising as the in game years advance, then yes, its something we can look at but as we always, always say, do not just look at the attributes as soon as you load up, play the game, see how the players develop or not and then we might have something we can work with. But to also repeat what Ter and Bryan told you, he's a new signing, we trust the previous clubs researcher as they've likely to have seen him more than we have and that's both the Leicester boy and our very own SI employed, Rangers supporting researcher, giving him a 14, that's good enough for me as they know what they're doing.
  9. All you need to do is quote the Daily Mail and you have the full set I do understand where you're coming from regarding Dembele but we're in a difficult position as we've been here before, if you've been around the research as long as I have with Feruz, McGeady, MALONEY, where they all broke through at Celtic as superstars and we were getting pelters and petitions for our sacking for not giving -9s, -10s . And as their careers panned out, they never did reach the highs that a -75, -8 PA would give, never mind a -9 or 10, so in cases like this, where we do maybe have the next best thing coming through, we still need to look at what's been before and try to reign in any hyperbole. The PA he's got just now could again, see him become one of the best prospects Scotland's had, if he reaches his full potential in game and as he's only 17, there's still scope where we could decide on upping his PA in the future if he does start looking the super-superstar folk think he may be. Hope that makes sense and reasonable
  10. Third time. Third researcher. No matter how many different videos you post on here, doesn't change the fact that BALANCE... IS... NOT... A... HOW WELL BUILT... HOW STRONG HE IS... ATTRIBUTE!!!! The Swansea boy gave you it word for word
  11. No idea, that's way above my station, but they do . Its an interesting wee insight into how clubs think, when you see what they come back with. We are lucky though, the SPFL give us a lot of free reign, when you see what other licensed countries need to put up with.
  12. No problems bud, you responded way better than some of us *cough* @ATW *cough* when we found out, as it makes us look daft . Iirc its the same with the Dundee Utd and Aberdee vice-captains.
  13. Aye, there's nothing we can really change here data wise as the game doesn't understand the significance of 10 in a row. We could lower Gerrard & Lennon's job security, but then that might see them both getting replaced immediately. We could also change the 'Winning the league' ambition rating, so it's required, but could you imagine this thread if you're all getting sacked from Rangers and Celtic after one season ?
  14. This unfortunately is down to licensing. Ter had Goldson down as vice captain, the SPFL asked for it to be changed to McGregor.
  15. It's been lowered to 2 for having the audacity to defy the cosmos and score a double against the mighty Bairns!! . Aye it's been upped bud. As I say, everything was taken on board. I'm sure O'Hara's finishing did go up a bit as well. Last season was his first prolific season, after not really doing it at Falkirk or his loan spells, so we don't want to make too rash a judgement, but as you said, there's a reason Dunfermline signed him to replace Nisbet for the 20/21 season. Cheers for the Martin link, I'll pass that on.
