  1. Just ask Slovenia how that feels. Specially when neither of their two top class player wants to play for the national team. To answer this thread, I had an old Holiday save where Sudan ended up playing in the world cup, due to having not one, but two of the best strikers in the world. The rest of the team was garbage though.
  2. So, I started as Valencia. At the start of the game Simone Zaza is loaned out with a mandatory transfer to Torino. So after 1 year he leaves. At that point Carlos Soler is unhappy that I sold a influential player, and want an explanation. The option "this decision was made before I took over" isn't there, so I end up telling him I will sign an even better player. It also turns out Thiago Alcantara isn't seen as a good enough player to be seen as better than Zaza, so he is still angry. Now, a month later, a few of his team mates comes and support Soler. I understand that the player was technically sold when I was in charge, but the players should be able to understand that I wasn't in charge of the decision. Also, even if I had loaned him out at the start of the game, they should have been angry then as it won't exactly come as a surprise when Zaza leaves next summer in real life.
  3. What about the fact that in 2030 or even in 2020, way more leagues will have VAR than today?
  4. So Ballon d'Or winner George Weah had no change of being world class?
  5. Clubs do both is more accurate. When it comes to the "signing players based on form" I do understand it happens IRL, the difference is that in-game I will avoid doing those kind of mistakes as I will only base my signings on how good the player stats is, which will give me a big advantage. Maybe if it affected scout reports as well, or even the actual numbers you see for the player.
  6. Not if you are like me and get so hyped about the possibility of having 12 players on the bench, that I end up with two teams filled with players who would be the star player of every other Serie A team. Having both of my right full backs complain about lack of playing time at the same time is a weird situation to be in.
  7. I never do press conferences, so I only answer questions that are randomly thrown at me. (Much like in real life really.) The one that annoys me is when someone is interested in one of my players that I don't want to sell, and my only options is either to say something like "I have a lot of time for manager X, but player is not for sale". Or "I am not selling player, and least of all to manager X". Most of the time the actual answer I would like to give is "I am not selling the player, and the manager in question has absolutely nothing to do with it. Seriously, I hadn't even heard his name before you brought it up, why the hell should it have any impact on me selling my best player?" Or the always classic "Manager has blablabla, do you see the feud between you as over?" My honest answer "You have asked this question the last 15 times I have met this coach, and the answer is the same as the last 14. I didn't even know we had a feud before you brought it up. I am on the other hand starting to have a feud with you, because you are really annoying."
  8. It looks to me like that list is only giving me the players currently at the club. From my first season I can only see three players. Two of them regens who hadn't even shown up yet (but were probably already at the club).
  9. When you are 3-0 down, with five minutes to go, the best option might be to just shoot directly from kick off.
  10. I remember an earlier game where I could set up a friendly against my reserves. Set the reserves up in an absurd formation. Win the match 55-0 or something, and suddenly the whole team had super morale. I never did it after testing it, because it seemed super exploity, but it seemed a bit weird that an internal friendly against the reserve team would create such better morale.
  11. When you try to buy the player he might "be worth" 1 million, because he is an unknown youngster with low reputation. The club who owns him on the other hand know he is a player with huge potential, and don't want to sell him. Or, the club selling him know that he is important to the club, and can't get a proper replacement with only a few days left of the transfer window. Or, the club selling him made a ****** deal when buying him, which means they only get a small portion of the transfer fee, meaning they need 10 million to get some sort of profit (according to rumours, the real reason why Musacchio never left Villarreal at some point). Or the selling club is rich, and they have no need for your money. Or the selling club know you have a lot of money, and would be willing to pay way above the players value (like Carroll to Liverpool). I am not saying all of those scenarios are in the game, but there are tons of reason a club put the price of a player way above what he is worth. When you "try to sell the player", the other clubs knows you try to get rid of him and won't start a bidding war to donate money to you.
  12. There can be multiple valid reasons for this behavior. You might be in the same league as the player you want to buy or the bid might include extra clauses that doesn't show up in the reported bid. In any case it is all about timing. I managed to sign Andre Gomes for 7 million, keep him as rotation for two seasons before selling him for over 40. There are always players who are available for an acceptable price, and there are always players you can sell for way over their value. It is just not always the players you want to sign or sell.
  13. I still find it a bit weird that Brexit was added because it will happen in some form and it will be more realistic, while nothing is done about the Champions League changes that are much more confirmed and closer and more relevant. It just feels like whatever happens in England is always more important and relevant than the rest of the world.
  14. I find it a bit absurd that they needed to add Brexit "for realism", but the changes to the Champions League are not added to the game.
