  1. Enjoy your new club Mr. De Sousa. I can now buy 3 world class players to replace you.
  2. 1. Can almost guarantee the his adaptability is under 10 (Hidden Attributes) and he is struggling to fit into the squad and and Premier League. 2. As others have pointed out he is a square peg in a round hole if you try use him as an Advance Forward.
  3. Mina Raiola in FM under a pseudonym except he never asked for a 20 Million agent fee
  4. When getting fast promotions you have to be ruthless with the players in your Squad. Sell/release those that don't have the ability to compete in your new league. Replace these with Players that will improve your squad. If you are struggling to attract players Loans are your friend. 5 good Loanees in positions you are struggling to fill will sustain your team for the year. Remember to loan for your tactic and not because of their reputation. Raid Top 6 Premier League clubs U23's and if that does not pan out work your way down the hierarchy. Look abroad for loanees who do not need/will get Wor
  5. The number of games he plays and his game ratings will affect his climb up the social structure of the club. I had an 18 year old LB join the club (Bolton) with 18 Leadership. He also started in the "Other" group. By end of year one he had supplanted the existing starting LB through better game ratings (7.19 vs 6.98) better Training ( 9.1 vs 8.6). By the start of his second season at the club he was already "influential" and part of the secondary group. The biggest issue i faced was the 29 year old existing LB getting his panties all twisted when I downgraded him from Regular Starter to Squa
  6. Under Training/Mentoring You can add them to an existing group (use your Assistant to set up if you want) or create a group and add them to that.
  7. Had this happen in a similar manner and noticed that win ratio is a probable deciding factor in these cases. You won 28 and he won 29 and the game gave the award to him.
  8. Why is Poor Performance not included in the Code Of Conduct agreement? Surely an agreement could be reached regarding this? I use the following "rules" in relation to Poor Performances - Friendlies/ much Bigger Club - nothing. Match Rating 6.3 or less - 3 Warnings then the fines start with a fine increase each time. If I have to fine a Player 2 weeks wages twice within the same year that player is transfer listed. So that is 7 disciplinary actions before the "final straw" performance.
  9. Why is there no recourse for the Manager to discipline a Loaned Player for a poor performance.?? We cannot fine them, we cannot contact their home club to complain, we cannot even give them a verbal warning. All we can do is point fingers etc and talk to them. Now in the actual footballing world I am sure that a Manager that is paying (Fee/Salary) would have a pathway to contact the parent club manager/loan manager and request assistance in dealing with consistent poor performances. Any disciplinary actions could then be implemented by the Parent Club.
  10. Seeing the same thing on my Non-League to Legend Save. Currently at Sunderland - just promoted to Premier league. Board set "Sign Players under 23" as Required. Recruitment meetings full of 30+ players with Championship level skills. DoF (16 CA and 17 PA) keeps wanting to buy 2 star PA players for my U23 side. It is almost as if the DoF/Recruitment meetings/Scouts are locked into previous season League reputation and are not incorporated into the Board requirements
  11. Poor performance by a loanee should result in a discussion with parent club about a reduction in fees/salary by home club or should be part of the initial loan negotiations. This is one of the reasons I very rarely loan players as I have no recourse to affect their performance levels. Poor performance fines should form part of the Code of Conduct agreement. I currently have to man manage this ( i am a disciplinarian) 6.3 or lower 2 warnings then fines increase after each poor performance. If i get to 2 week fine next is transfer listed. Any player that uses the "my team did not allow me to pla
  12. Are you referring the the constant yapping in your ear by your assistant manager in the Dugout box. If so - I totally agree - there needs to be a way to switch the entire thing off or give us the FM20 ability to select which advice we want. In a 24 team league I really don't want bu Assistant telling me every time a goal is scored on match day, or telling me that Player X is really good at crossing and we should close him down, or that Player x has given us everything and should be replaced with 5 minutes left to play, or Player x as a bruise and should be replaced - Bruise??????? I reall
  13. As mmitch19 stated you now have to manually remove the availability of each player. Then when the email pops up again make sure that the "Automatically" tick box is un-ticked. In the responsibilities tab under "Match" there is the ability to tell your U23 or U18 manager to contact you regarding the availability of your First Team players for their respective squads. However I think this is bugged as I have mine set to "Never" yet still get the request from the U18's manage before every game. I prefer to manually assign players because the game does not take into consideration the fitness level
  14. Thanks for the comments but I think that the board had already taken into consideration the wages of an incoming Free Transfer which, when he arrived 2 weeks later!!, pushed my wage budget into the red. A simple budget adjustment resolved that issue. Still feel that the Boards reaction was a bit over-the-top and should be replaced with something like - Your Wage budget is forecast to be overspent with your recent transfer activity please adjust budgets or we will be forced to adjust your budgets for you.
  15. Just received an email from Director I am under budget and Board are "Happy"
  16. Despite having set "Ask which first team players are available for this team" to NEVER the U18 Manager sends me a email every week asking me to identify First team players for 18 duties. Not game breaking just irritating.
