  1. I'd not be overly concerned if they're interested anyway. That's a big leap to the player requesting a transfer and even if they do request one there's ways to manage that. Like you say, they both seem happy with you anyway, keep winning and you should be fine. I'd argue often in the past it's been too easy to keep players when the elite big clubs globally come looking.
  2. I don't have a solution, but have to agree staff wages and what you can offer (or even see/filter targets to what you can offer or afford) has always been user-unfriendly. I've had similar in previous versions, shedloads of spare cash and wage budget but get stopped buying staff.
  3. There are tactics out there (Knap has done a load) which 'break the ME' and they're not illogical tactics so you could stumble on a tactic as they are out there and wonder why everything is so easy because it will be!
  4. I've played a shedload of FM21 hours now at various clubs, levels and nations with a wide variety of tactical set up's so here's the feedback for what it's worth. The ME - I never really had a melt down on FM20 ME so my opinion is probably slanted, but I'm not really seeing 'the new ME is better'. Players still make stupid decisions (CB with loads of time and space heading back a long forward ball to land 10 yards in front of him in loads of space for an opposition player to pick up) or a player chasing hopeless balls and when they get there they stop themselves winning a throw/corner and giv
  5. No and this has always been the case since FM introduced VAR. It's a small annoyance, hating VAR (irl) added to it being a pointless pause with always the same outcome on FM makes it more annoying.
  6. That Venom Fire 41212 all cups No loss is a bit mad. I can't use it. It's too good! I quit Strasbourg (predicted 15th) at Xmas in 2nd place of French Ligue 1. Now in March they've slipped to 13th going back to whatever AI tactic they're now using.
  7. People watching football have known that for years. Team with most possession loses is hardly news?
  8. I've never thought of trying that before, editing in as best can current save squad to next version. Be interesting to see how it works out. Good shout.
  9. On number 2; you're doing all you can. And it depends what you're looking for? Develop and sell for profit or future 1st teamers? I'd ignore the 1-5 stars for starters. Players can change/develop surprisingly well. Basic good core attributes for a role your first team uses is good enough and especially good mental stats. How often do you think a club with the best youth set up in the world produce a player with real decent potential for their 1st team who will go on that path successfully? I doubt even one a year? That gem might be one in every 3-4 years worth of academy graduates? That's t
  10. I'm loving FM20. I'd not take social media or this forum as that reliable a barometer. The few mates I have that play the game aren't even aware this place exists and definitely don't watch YouTube video's about the game.
  11. Where VAR falls down on FM is that it's only used for penalty shouts or goals scored. If for the former it will always be a penalty, if the latter always disallowed so makes it pretty pointless. The sense of 'wait and see, was it or wasn't it?' is just not there.
  12. Where in what Neil said do you read anything like that? Because I don't. It's weird how perceptions are different, not unlike perceptions of the ME which is fine for me. Not perfect but fine enough. I've had a lot of playtime and fun on this version, but get that there's a swell of those who haven't here. What you've written seems far too harsh to me Welshace. It's only a game at the end of the day. We all want the best or a better game, but some speak like SI have driven the SI bus over their cat and forgot to apologise.
  13. I've suffered from the "promoted too early/soon" curse if you can call it that. I can't remember a 0-7 defeat but had a season in the Premier League with, at best, a squad of decent or average league one players. It got to the point where a 0-1 defeat I was more than happy with! 0-4's, 0-5's, and anything-6 were the norm. It was brutal right up to the point I was sacked in January.
