  1. Could be down to reputation or money, improve them to see if the option becomes available. Youth recruitment is definitely based on reputation.
  2. I'm surprised by the single euro nationalities coming through. Playing in the lower leagues of N Ireland and England its very rare to see that sort of nationalities come through, there are some dual nationalities. I think the ass or HOYD make errors with the youth as either they have poor judging abilities or simply assume a pa is a certain amount greater than the ca when in fact its almost the same.
  3. you maybe should have gone for Scotland or N Ireland, its a bit more competitive especially in the top division.
  4. That does seem cheap, i guess land is more available than in countries like england where £2M gets you a new stadium with about 2500 seats. You are really beginning to dominate Sweden now.
  5. I'm impressed by your success as the premier division is very competitive. Managing in Sweden myself this year but had 3 years of not winning the title with Hammarby which meant the end.
  6. They are a highland team so it is possible, i tried getting them up but ended with every higher rep team and quite a few lower rep teams promoted but not them.
  7. I would like to see an option to take on other nationalities after meeting the days completed criteria similar to a player. As well as helping the managers knowledge it could influence the future chances of getting jobs in that country if you start as a foreign manager.
  8. Has anyone tried with Caley Braves in scotland. Im just curious to know if all their youth players really are french.
  9. more games this season and a bit of progress, also played more than Goran at least.
  10. That is an astonishing tactic that doesn't look like it should work with the midfield balance as its too attacking (although IF's were very effective in FM19, i haven't used them in FM20 to see any changes) , how did you decide on that tactic.
  11. i think all the players are all going to have to up their games, just 6 goals in 31 starts isn't going to get any records. Has Redding taken any penalties and has he scored them?
  12. In spite of being worth more, my player is already behind another youngster at the same club. Not a good start.
  13. I saw this problem in the beta and reported it, still happening in new saves. Lowestoft is an example i have seen, no idea if it is just certain teams or not. There seems to be a lot of annoying bugs still at the moment.

  15. Good progress as ever, not surprised the youth preview is pretty negative. I imagine the higher the status of club, the more negative it appears as it is all relative to your existing (better) squad.
  16. Having a chairman willing to prop up the club is always good, looking like a good club for you, youth intake aside. Personally i always sign all the youth up as the staff generally seem very poor at analyzing their ability, get a staff member with high judging attributes and see they have a different opinion on the candidates while they are still at the club.
  17. With your finances, did you have a takeover? I had one in my current game and the finances improved by 40K although there was no message to say so and the chairman said there would be no investment
  18. Good luck this time, should make for an interesting time. the facilities are a bug i think- i have seen the same in the english lower leagues where a team had the best possible coaching and recruitment in the VNS, it changed at the season start. In my game the club has basic and fairly basic.
  19. That's really bad luck, the clubs seem really demanding in Sweden this year by the looks of it with no room for falling just short. What was your rating in the job by the end as C seems like you are doing ok rather than on the point of being sacked.
  20. Hi, I'm afraid i do not have a save from before the change, it was overwritten.
  21. i also had my board want attacking, entertaining and high tempo football at the start of my 2nd season. I was also the top league goal scorers that season - coincidence maybe? The board also would not drop the ideas either.
  22. nice to see your saves as usual. Was this league weaker than the last league or just a stronger team?
  23. I'm guessing you have really poor attendances, last year i did this with Worthing and was never in financial trouble but then they averaged 700 in the first season. The number of home fans makes a huge difference at that level.
  24. After the 1st season in England (with all uk and Ireland leagues loaded) Lowestoft were promoted into VLN. I noticed that their youth coaching and recruitment were good and adequate before the promotion on 29May and after the promotion on 24th Jun were both excellent. This appears to be a bug.
  25. I should point out that there is no promotion from N Ireland after the first season and after the 2nd season it is almost impossible to get a team other than Belfast Celtic. Also the reset date is the day of the the playoff match 2nd leg (end of april), you then need to go forward a few months to 24th jun to see which team appears.
