    Austin Opara (13219742)  & Opara Austin (13219914) are duplicated. both at Mountain Top FC. First one needs deleted as he has no profile filled out. Second one needs renamed to Austin Opara.

    Cyril Olisemah (13209603) is the duplicate of Cyrile Olisema (13209603), both at Akwa. Olisema needs his positions changed to AMC20 & MC18 though, as the duplicate seems to have the correct positions.

    Alberico (13218436) at Akwa, is the duplicate of Alberico (19323266) in the Brazil db. The real one needs moved to Akwa.

    Segun Fatunwase (13219795) is the duplicate of Segun Fatuanwase (13219829), both at Heartland

    Michael Uche (13219825) is the duplicate of Uche Michael (13219796), both at Heartland. The 'real' one has no profile set.

    Jamil Muhammad (13219948) is the duplicate of Jamil Muhammad (13221033) both at Kano Pillars.


  2. Since the winter update patch, the loan rules for all 4 Divisions are suddenly wrong. 

    In game it says  “a maximum of 4 domestic-based players allowed on loan in a season.” It should be “maximum of 4 domestic based players allowed on loan at one time.”

    ”Maximum of 5 players allowed on loan at one time” and “maximum of four outfield players allowed on loan at a time” need removed completely. There are no restrictions on the number of international loans. St Mirren currently have 9 players on loan with 7 of them outfield. My club Falkirk, also have 7 players currently on loan.

    SPFL Rules

    57 Subject to Regulations 60, a Club shall not, at any one time, have more than:-
    (i) one Player League Registered with it on the basis of a Temporary Transfer from any one other Club for the time being eligible to participate in the same Division as itself;
    (ii) two Players League Registered with it on the basis of Temporary Transfers from any one other Club for the time being eligible to participate in another Division from itself; and
    (iii) in aggregate, including Players falling within Regulations 57(i) and 57(ii), four Players League Registered with it on the basis of Temporary Transfers from Scottish Football clubs.

    International Temporary Transfers
    Nothing in these Regulations shall have the effect of imposing any limit on the number of Players a Club shall be permitted to have Scottish FA Registered and/or League Registered with that Club at any time and/or over any period of time on the basis of a Temporary Transfer(s) where such Temporary Transfer(s) has/have required, in order to take place, the issue of an International Transfer Certificate(s) or its equivalent

    I tried to add Evans via the pre editor and he isn't even in that either, probably due to his last job with the Scottish Womens U19's

    Nah, it's not to do with the Women's position as he's no longer set as NFE and he's definitely in the Hibs file. The game is treating the Academy Scout position the same as Not For Extraction, which makes me think it's deliberate just now until the role is possibly improved in future editions. But that's just me thinking out loud.

    Kevin Thomson got promoted to a u18 coach at rangers 

    Yeah, he should be U18 Assistant now, with David McCallum becoming the U18 manager. Billy Kirkwood should probably now be a scout, with him becoming loans manager on 26/10/18.

    Gregory Vignal (who appears to still be contracted to the French Academy) can also be included now too, as he became an U18 coach in the January reshuffle, as well as working with the 16s.

    Again, another couple of staff related things that missed data lock if folk want to edit. (Should be alright since it was me that reported them)

    • Paraskevas Polychronopoulos (61091189) is 1st Team Fitness Coach from 1/6/17.
    • Graeme Smith (5202468) is the Reserve Team & U18 GK Coach from 1/6/18. (Retired as a player end of 17/18 season)
    • Jamie Ramsden should be the Reserve & U18 Sports Scientist
    • Ross Harvie is another 1st Team Physio. Needs Created.

    I mentioned weeks ago that Gareth Evans has returned to Hibs as head of youth academy but still hasn't been added, he cannot be added either in game or pre editor as he's not in the data base at all. Also  reserve coach Chris Smith left Hibs many months ago. Also Jamie Gullan and Josh Campbell signed new long-term deals in January. 

    I had a look and Evans is in the Hibernian file, set as an Academy Scout as his job of overseeing the U13-U16s, isn't currently a role in FM. It looks like Academy scout jobs aren't showing up (not sure if it's deliberate or not) in FM.

    Other stuff for Hibs that was reported but missed data lock, if folk want to edit...

    • Their Head of Sports Science, Nathan Ring, has also been an England U21 physio from August '17, according to his linkedin. He should also be English as he was born in Coventry.
    • Grant Murray is the Reserve Team Manager, as well as 1st Team Coach
    • Calvin Charlton is a Portsmouth supporter.

  7. To add to Calum McGregor's bio problems, it also says his career spanned just 4 years, from 2009 to 2013. It appears to be taking his loan end date from Notts County, as the end of his career, when he's went on to play another four seasons with Celtic after said loan. (And is still playing)

    Are you able to tell me how to update players bios because I've noticed a few errors with some Celtic players.

    If you look at Rogic and McGregor the stats don't add up. With Rogic bio it says he's played 44 games for Celtic and no goals but he's played way more than 44 league games plus he's scored numerous times. Even if you look at his profile from 14/15 onwards to current he's played a lot of league games and scored goals. It's the exact same for Calum McGregor. I know there is the editor data but does the players bio's appear on there? Maybe it is there I just couldn't see it.

    I think what's happened with McGregor is that his 16/17 and 17/18 stats are missing from his bio. If you read his bio it shows that he's played 44 games and scored 6 goals. I've attached his total stats.


    His 16/17, 17/18 histories aren’t missing from the database itself though. As researchers, we have nothing to do with the bios, it’s the AI that generates them. If it’s not showing up correctly, you’re going to have to report it as a bug over in the bug forum, cheers.


    Having a look at McGregor's bio, it's definitely badly written. "In a playing career that spanned just 4 years from 2009 to 2013, McGregor made 81 appearances and scored 18 goals" It appears to be using the season 13/14 end date for his Notts County loan as  the end of his career, while then using the 13/14, 14/15, 15/16 stats to give a total of 81/18 for his total career stats. :herman: So yeah, if you could report it as a bug, that would be grand, as I've no idea what it's doing, as all the dates and histories are in the database.

    They were there last year too but as you said the researchers cannot set them as such, so the only way to put players on them is to take them off their loans in the pre game editor, then once you fire up the game from start put them out on loan again with the Dev bit ticked. No real big problem just a bit annoying that it cannot be done by you guys in the 1st place.

    Aye, sorry, I fully understand now. 😄 I thought that even though we couldn’t set development loans, the fact the rules said that players could play, meant that it was a work a round for the players we initially set on loan. Obviously not, which is a pain in the archie!

    Pre editor and take them off the loan they're on, then when in game offer out on loan again ticking the play for reserve/ dev team option.

    As far as I know, development loans are in FM19. Like's been said, as researchers, we can't set loans as development loans but in the league rules, it's set that U23s are allowed to play for their parent clubs reserves, as long as parent & loan clubs aren't in the same reserve division.

    3) If there are licensing reasons why you can't include the real youth structure in the game then that is understandable but speaking from a gameplay point of view there needs to be at least some sort of generic youth structure to ensure that the youth players play competitive games.

    The new Project Brave Elite Leagues are in FM19, they're just not in the public beta release as the data used is older than the ongoing updating of the database for release. As mentioned in the Scottish Data forum, the reason for the late inclusion is because there was no information being given for how they were going to operate until the very last minute.

    I get that you've added u18 competitions this week (I'd ask why it was overlooked for so long but never mind) but is there any way you guys can push for the u18 changes to could be included in the next hotfix? If another one comes out before release.

    It was very hard getting info on u18's set up as SFA and clubs don't make it easy to get this info but we sourced it now

    Yup, that's what happened. The big Project Brave reconstruction happens and we say to ourselves "You know what would be fun? Lets overlook the new youth setup in FM19, that'll be a laugh!" As Bryan says, there was no info, zilch, heehaw, nowt whatsoever being given about how the U18 leagues would operate, but luckily it was eventually sourced.

    Is Karamoko Dembele still too young to feature at Celtic? Are there no other 15 year olds in the game? Thanks for the hard work. 

    Yeah, he's still to young to feature in FM19 (despite some clickbait sites saying otherwise!) If I remember right, if a player turns 16 before 1/9/2002, then he's eligible to be included.

    Just a small thing. Looking at Dunfermline Athletic, under fierce rivals it has none, however Falkirk and Faith are considered fierce rivals. (Will provide screenshot tomorrow)

    How did you type that with your 7 fingers? 😛 Yeah, both I and the Dunfermline researcher had us at 20 for the rivalry, but it was effecting transfers between the clubs, which obviously isn’t the case irl, so we were advised to lower the rivalry to 16, so it’s still strong but transfers between the clubs are still likely to happen.
