  1. Hello, I thought I would throw out there an idea I have had for a while to make FM more realistic. In real life (at least that I am aware of), there is not one major database or mainframe where clubs transfer list there players. Rather there are multiple factors which could indicate if a player is for sale or not. It could be made public, the agent is searching for a new club for their client to 'see what clubs are interested', players themselves will sometimes make noise on wanting to leave, rumors and media speculation along with a host of other scenarios dictate if a player is more ava
  2. Hey, excellent post! I've personally thought about this too - unfortunately with stuff like this there is the issue of legal actions taking place, similar to how there are no real negative traits with real life players but only with newgens or players coming out as gay in FM. I think one target FM could explore is what you've mentioned with your players arguing either with the ref or with each other and your disposition towards the referee and other managers could be further explored by SI. The rivalry portion you mentioned I also feel could be improved further by SI to make it more tense in s
  3. Hello, I'm not sure if this has changed yet... but I do remember this being in FM where when you look at the overall stats for players and clubs in certain competitions like the Champions League - ALL clubs (even in the first round of qualifying) are there. I feel that it should be reset when you reach the group stage of the competition to give a more accurate indication of how clubs perform when they are in the competition proper. If this has been implemented I would like to consider subdividing this possibly further - so subdividing stats between the group stages and knockout rounds.
  4. Hello, This for sure is one area I feel like SI could improve for a while now. If you don't mind I would like to elaborate a bit further on this topic. One point you make @karanhsingh is that a World Cup should "feel" like a World Cup. I definitely agree. With continental tournaments, in particular the Euro's and Copa America and the World Cup - the media and euphoria should be exceptional even if you do not follow the tournament via your socials. If we do manage an international team and are participating in said tournaments, I feel more could be done to make it really feel like yo
  5. I like this idea. I feel like especially within the medical side of FM. I feel that with physio's, fitness coaches, etc... we could expand just a bit further not just on more roles but also being more specific with attributes.
  6. Is that not the whole challenge though and being the most accurate? Nations, leagues and clubs will either increase or decrease in ability over time and that affects development of youngsters as is the same in real life. The way SI deal with newgens is that each Association has a Youth Rating which varies between 0-200 - the better it is the more frequent that a country produces "raw talent". However so many factors lead to the development of those youngsters or if they reach their potential. There is a reason why the average Newgen potential ability is low in weaker nations - that's because t
  7. @Luke Hume Hey, I've attached another save file with (v3) at the end as that is around a week or two earlier leading into the match.
  8. Hey @Luke Hume I have uploaded the file, it is named "seabas3 - Forge FC.fm" following that link. If you need anymore info please let me know. Thanks,
  9. Hello, I'm having this exact same issue - and I've tried playing several times and it won't work. What should I do?
  10. Hello, A few days ago it was announced the CPL will have an expansion team launched in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (Canadian Premier League Announces Expansion in Saskatchewan – Canadian Premier League (canpl.ca). While this is great I was wondering if for FM22 we will see this club eventually be added to the CPL in a future season? Specifics on when the club is going to join the league is still a tad uncertain with the aim being for the 2023 season, essentially I'm curious if SI will guarantee put the team in or if they still need more information. I know during saves I've run into expansio
  11. Can anyone help with this or has anyone had a similar experience???
  12. Let me also add that I believe this issue will develop further. The Finals (if we do make it) is either end of January/early February. On top of that I have qualified for the CONCACAF Champions League which the early campaign starts in late February - right in and around when my players come back from holiday which is March 1st.
  13. Hello, My current save is with Forge FC in the Canadian Premier League. Now we have had an amazing run of form and find ourselves in the Scotiabank CONCACAF League Semi-Finals against Olimpia. The issue is that this tie takes place in early January when the CPL and likewise Forge FC have their holiday. I saw that a training regime was set for surrounding the week of the match - however ALL my players were still on holidays. I can't seem to call them back and so I made an extra save to see what would happen when leading up to the match and I had to play with a bunch of greyed out players!
  14. Hello All, This is more of a personal satisfaction and ego-booster suggestion but I feel it could definitely be improved upon. I find that the fan's views of favorites, icons and legends to be very unrealistic for us managers. Some of us do incredible things with clubs and bring unprecedented success - the board love us and even the fan ratings are through the roof - and we aren't even an Icon. I understand that it is not easy to get Legendary or Icon status - however especially with smaller clubs or lower league saves, I find the measurement broken on how fan's judge you overall within t
  15. Hello All. This is a common suggestion within the FM community. While women's football is coming into mainstream franchises like FIFA - they haven't fully jumped into it - only putting national teams in the game. I understand that with FM this is a massive task and it will take lots of time and money, however I feel that Women's Football can be fazed into the game over time till eventually it is fully implemented. The way I thought this could happen is via Historical Data. We already have lists of previous winners and records - why not have that for Women's Football? I understand tha
