  1. A little bit more was spent on this half decent midfielder. Sadly my hopes of bringing in a keeper were dashed when he did his cruciate ligaments in just before signing. Next up was League 2 Cambridge Utd A surprisingly 50/50 encounter spoiled by Cambridge being lethal in front of goal.
  2. What is it with all these cops? I wonder how many clubs they have. This time Egypt and they finished 14th in their Premier last season. A few transfers were needed as without them I think we would have just gone straight back down. Then up came our first pre-season friendly... Needless to say I'm not too happy.
  3. I forgot to mention that I ran the game for 1 season before starting with St. Neots. During that 1st season there was news of a Welsh Tycoon. Did he take on Cardiff, Swansea, Wrexham? Maybe a League of Wales club? Nope! He went here to spend his millions... That's in the Soloman Islands by the way. They finished 2nd in their league.
  4. Oh no! A Police takeover!!! No worries though. The Mali Premier shows they aren't that good at football.
  5. The board don't expect much The daily mirror clearly knew something I didn't. It will also be interesting to see if English clubs will still dominate a full on game. Disappointingly though the 1st Champions League Final Sadly these players won'y agree new deals making my job more difficult
  6. Silly me. Can a mod move it to careers please?
  7. Now I have a bazzing laptop it is time to play FM the way it is meant to be played. The idea of this epic is a simple rags to riches career with the whole World to compete with. Who have I chosen to one day rule the FM World? My poor stats at the start weren't going to help me and to be fair I hadn't got that much experience either. So with a fast beating heart it was time to take a look at the club. A quick chat with the chairman told me some details and general information. Then I went out and checked the facilities. An overview of what was available to me was given by the Chairman along with the club's financial standing. I found out our odds on getting the title with a quick ring to the local bookie. It was looking bleak. Then it was time to meet the staff and the guys tasked with helping us survive the 1st season. I then sat down and began to plan... Because this game is a little slower I intend posting as I go. The moment anything happens worthy of a post, I'll post. So not the run of the mill end of seasons reports.
  8. I do almost the same except if a player is sent off for a professional foul they get a 1 week wages fine. If the assistant thinks the reds are not deserved then I do nothing and appeal.
  9. Clearly you were wrong to fine him. I only fine players for being sent off (straight red) or not turning up for training.
  10. If a club is taken over by a Tycoon then their reputation does increase a lot.
  11. I'd hire a DoF. Set him to make offer for 1st team players but make sure YOU have the final say on whether to sign the player or not. Sometimes he can come up with a quality player for next to nothing.
  12. I just do not play them (not even on the subs bench) until they've had enough and forgot about it. Having unhappy players (even 1) can have a bad effect on results.
  13. I've always believed that from the Championship down all clubs should only be able to bring in "HG" players. Foreigners in the Premier is fair enough but not the second tier down. That said in answer to the original question. The rules changed a couple of seasons ago for work permits. You are given a permit for the duration of the contract. After that if you do not qualify for a work permit then tough. Even if he is with the same club you paid £10m for. If he wouldn't qualify for a work permit you cannot renegotiate his next contract. Came as an annoying shock when I wasn't allowed to even offer a contract to one of our own players that I had high hopes for.
  14. Aren't they under a transfer ban? Hence NO players are available to you so they don't show.
  15. Leave as little as you can tp your staff. I find them to be generic and generally useless. Even the assistant manager, U21's and U18's managers. They get told to play the same TACTICS for the Reserves and U18s but they DON'T! They only play the same FORMATION.
  16. As said before happens quite a bit. Never once in my years of playing have I ever got a player for less than another bidding club (and I am very frugal with cash). I also think it's terrible the way AI clubs will usually bid exactly the same as each other. Shouldn't it become a bidding war if more than one club is interested?
  17. I hope this does not get lost in this huge thread but I have just bought Out of the Park Baseball and I'm amazed about the brilliance of their fictional leagues whereby you can set up the baseball world in anyway you see fit. Now I would love to see FM implement this, it's brilliant. Currently managing the Bolton Iron Camels in the English Major Baseball League in which 200 clubs compete.
  18. He means you cannot add more than 69 custom leagues. Been like that for a while.
  19. Also when your scouts find what they believe to be a quality player. So I then get the AssMan to scout him. All seems good so you sign him only to find the second you do the assistant manager has changed his opinion and decides he's average at best!
  20. Continental competition sux when you have just 1 league.
  21. As manager and assistant manager of Bolton Wanderers Under 21s in December 2026. Should be interesting.
  22. Going professional depends entirely on your club's reputation NOT finances. Scouting range also depends on club reputation. So basically keep winning trophies and these things will happen.
  23. There are way too many World Class players in the game. The definition needs changing. For me it may be something like "could have been in the "World" 25 man squad at some point over the last 12 months. Or 22, 16 or even 11.
