  1. If you don't play him at all, he or the manager at the other club might want to go back, that happens all the time i found. Great work on staying up
  2. Well done on promotion, would you pay any money if the right player was available?
  3. I suspect that the game picks on ability which looks good for the future, he can't be far from a first game. Have you had a international callup before?
  4. 2026/27 Table | Transfers | Squad Started quite poorly but picked without really getting a consistent good run going. As a result spent most of the season in midtable with a late run not good enough to make the playoffs. Cups - disappointing, lost at home to L2 Port vale in the league cup, knocked out by VNL in the 2nd rd of the FA Cup after beating L1 Burton away. Didn't come close to winning a checkatrade cup match. Finances decreased a lot due to the higher expenses of L2 even though attendances rose slightly to 2555 which was negatively impacted by playing in Crawley's stadium for 4 months. The defense was again pretty poor although i signed Westney and Ryder to bolster it. In midfield Klass was able to step up and Watts was fantastic as the season went on. My main 2 strikers also seemed to have no issues in the league with Dongda He getting back to scoring ways after a few lean years. 2027/28 Table | Transfers | Squad Again made a poor start before picking up to get into midtable. Fell off a cliff in the 2nd half of the season getting just 9 points from 18 games to finish just above relegation. Didn't seem able to create chances or score them if they came. Cups - lost to championship Derby in the league cup and L1 Preston in the FA cup which were tough draws. Won a few checkatrade matches to make the 2nd rd. Finances - Sold a few players which enabled me to get the board to improve the training facilities up to adequate standard. Otherwise the finances continued to fall with the club ending up in the red for teh first time in years. Watts had a minimum fee release clause of 250K which several clubs activated and he choose to go to Motherwell which had a real impact on the squad as i was unable to bring in any signings who were better than what i had. The squad generally was quite poor with all areas failing, no players really stood out although Bevis did well in what was his first prolonged run in the squad.

  5. I think it depends on club rep if a player is described as promising as well as the CA of the player (not PA which could be only just more than the CA). However Iker does look good with no obvious huge mental or physical deficiencies even at his age.
  6. I can see why you would try a target man with Albert, great attributes for it. Only his speed means he is not such an all round striker but perhaps you can intensively train it. A target man needs a 2nd striker up with him i found and you play with just 1 up front.
  7. Something else almost related but had anyone else picked up knowledge of a country from another manager or player. In previous fm's it happened but it seems not to now.
  8. This statement is right since i always thought that ambition had a part in youth development and determination only played a part in match situations. I have always hated having players with low determination so try to avoid them.
  9. Well done on promotion, the narrow loss to Bordeaux in preseason augers well. Seems very odd about the Italy offer. Any chance on getting more badges or even improving the facilities.
  10. Need another month like nov with a 5 or 6 match winning streak. Some quality defenders in the next intake may not go amiss looking at the table. Do you think that having your gk take freekicks and penalties is maybe costing you over a season, could someone else have scored more?
  11. 2025/26 Table | Squad | Transfers Started the season very strongly and was involved in the title race for most of the season until falling away in march. A good run in the last few games took the club to 3rd. In the playoffs the club got past Oxford Utd on penalties before easily seeing off Aldershot in the playoff final. In the cups there was limited progress. In the FA cup 2nd Rd the team were away to L1 Coventry and went 2-1 up in the 91st min despite being 2nd best all game before conceding a 94th min equalizer. Lost the replay 1-0 in another 1 sided effort. In the FA Trophy i was pretty annoyed to lose 0-4 at home to struggling VNL Oxford City even though i had a player sent off after 35 secs. Finances looked very steady for most of the season as average attendance went up from 1700 to 2300. I had sold 2 good young players in Aug as the finances had been looking less solid. In Jan i sold the 50% sell from for Vernon for 3 million. In march the club was taken over and teh new owner put in another 375K. As a result of the improved finances the club agreed to improve the training and youth facilities and improve youth recruitment. Oddly they took out a loan to increase the stadium capacity. In terms of the squad most of the players were pretty solid with Klass and Payne again excellent in central midfield. George ended the season as top scorer although my other strikers didn't really contribute a lot, it was lucky my midfield chipped in with a few. Rufati showed great improvement this year.

  12. Looks like it might pay to shortlist players when you sell them. It is telling that 2 of your best 4 players are the players than returned. They must have improved down to better training facilities since wouldn't be playing time.
  13. what are your facilities like now, have you managed much improvement? Can you afford to keep losing your best players or it that there are so many players it will not make a difference.
  14. Squad | Table | Transfers There has been a lot of progress made in the last few pages of this thread, unfortunately none of it has been by my team. They started well and then fell away before recovering. With 15 games to go they were 3 points from the playoffs, but the defense fell apart and the team only gained 18 points with 7 from the last 3 games. With the standard lower this year this was a missed chance. In the cups there was no progress at all, comfortably losing in the FA cup to L1 Colchester and then falling to struggling VNL side Newport in the FA trophy. Finances took a real nosedive this year with the complete lack of success, this was in spite of setting a new average attendance of 1733. Some ridiculously low offers came in for Vernon at the start of the season, i ended up selling him to Celtic for 250K + 50% sell on which was as much as i could get. Only 3 players stood out, Klass who did well when not suspended or injured, Payne who stepped up as a creative force and George who in spite of his inconsistent form still only finished 1 goal behind the league top scorer. The squad needs an overhaul as the defense seems not good enough and the strikers are incapable of scoring enough CCC especially one-on-ones at critical times. A lot of players are out of contact and want too much money to renew them.
