  1. I've done some tests before, and found no correlation between switching focus to fitness and actual c̶o̶n̶d̶i̶t̶i̶o̶n̶ / match fitness of the players. Forgot to test jadedness though. I don't know if there are any hidden parameters under the hood, but after that, I have never done any preseasons with fitness focus, and haven't had any problems with injuries or match fitness during the season. Edit: Condition does actually go up, but it makes no difference if you focus fitness or not. Also, checked the jadedness, it doesn't change in regards what type of preseason training you choose.
  2. Not only your best career, but, as I said before, one of the best careers ever. Congrats on the treble.
  3. That doesn't make any sense. Serbia is not a part of EU, therefore why would they limit the number of non-EU players in the team!? It's more likely that they limit foreign players, though I'm not sure if it's the case with BiH players, since half of BiH is a Serbian entity.
  4. Cleon, Ajax thread needs to be a sticky.
  5. Great start. And a great game yesterday IRL.
  6. Wow, a great start! Wish we played like that in real life... By the way, Manny Smith is pretty injury prone, as is Leacock, so you definitely need to have some cover there.
  7. Hope you will continue with this! I have played quite a few Notts Co games. Also signed Derry in the last one. Hollis was excellent for me.
  8. If you follow the your path, you will have no problem to get the Wrexham job.
  9. PA 200 player improved by 10 CA... That's not a lot, really. Like 5%. With standard players (PA less that 160) - pretty insignificant, IMO.
  10. That sucks. And by the way, player search should be overhauled, in my opinion.
  11. I wish you could have more control over financial stuff in FM. Something like General Manager Mode, or Chairman Mode, possibly. But I do understand that it would probably make the game far more easier. And it's easy enough with you being able to be a manager and a director of football at the same time.
  12. This. Plus, most of the large clubs became big by being supported by states in past times. It's enough, really. We don't need individual sponsors to make them even bigger. Don't get me wrong - I have no qualms with money being invested in football. The key word being "football". I just want equal opportunities for multiple teams.
  13. Standard preseason of 9+ friendlies (with three training days between each one), team training set to Team Cohesion on High, match prep set on Tactics and 50%, no individual training, no rest days.
  14. In my experience, average attendance grows fairly slowly. That's a large factor for both finances and stadium improvement. If a club has got a small stadium, you can't hope for 50k+ stadiums and attendances. Simply because a new stadium can be built once in 25 years. So, don't expect to build 100k stadium with a lower league club. And, by the way, don't ever bother buying the stadium you rent! As for sponsorships, they will grow over time, but I have yet to see clubs getting Man City/PSG fees, even after multiple CL wins. Players wages and transfer budgets will grow, probably not as fast as you'd want them to, but that wouldn't be a challenge anyways, right? Again, don't expect to get to the top by having superior players, but rather by using what you have in a best way.
