    When a player leaves his agent

    Just click on the agent’s name. A list will pop up off all his clients.
  2. What exactly are you supposed to do with this information? A list of some of the agent's clients is provided plus you can see all his clients with a click of the mouse. Are we supposed to approach some of his clients? Never saw a suggestion before as to what to do.
  3. I've been playing a few saves in 18.2.2 without the IGE. Just upgraded to 18.3.0 and started a few new saves in 18.3.0. Unclicked "prevent use of IGE". But the little "pencil icon" for IGE does not show up in the menu bar. It does say that I activated it in the preferences although I haven't used it. (because I can't) The saves I created were for NYCFC (MLS) beginning 22/1/2018 and Wolves in the Championship beginning 26/6/17. NEVERMIND. Didn't realize I had to restart both FM18 and Steam.

    Data Analyst

    As for the Data Analyst as it is in FM18, would we get a a different report or a more accurate report from a different analyst if he had a much higher "presenting data attribute"? Or if he had higher attributes in judging current & potential ability. I'm wondering if it is worth dropping a data analyst who has figures for these attributes around 9 or 10 for a new one who has 17,18, or 19.
  5. When you get a tactics advisory from the assistant manager before the next match, when he suggests that 2 or 3 players are lacking fitness or severely lacking fitness, what is he trying to tell you? A. Put these guys in the starting lineup to build up their fitness? ( I doubt it) B. Put these guys on the bench and try to get them in the game to build up their fitness? (possible but don't think so) C. Play these guys in u23 or u18 matches so they'll be ready soon. (Is this it?) D. Something different?

    LL's Strategy Insight

    LL, Great Guide. I remember you wrote a strategy guide similar to this a few years ago. I followed it and achieved great success. Glad to see you back.

    Player Form being tracked by backroom team

    Bump. Anyone? Should this be in bugs or tactics forum?
  8. Don't think this is a bug because I am getting this response when trying to view a few of my players recent form under reports. I had 2 players come up with this line, "Player form being tracked by backroom team but no data is available yet" where there would be stats about the previous 20 matches. About a month later stats came back but only the 5 games played since the backroom team was tracking. Now I have another player being tracked and his stats have disappeared. What is the purpose of this? Also under the same reports, the analysis tab states no matches available for analysis. Other tabs under reports work okay.
  9. Currently under Staff Responsibilities I can assign my DoF to handle negotiations for incoming players to the first team and I can do the finalizing. However, when it comes to handle negotiation of outgoing first team players, I can't finalize the deal that my DoF has negotiated. My DoF has sold two of my key players out from under me. I do not wish to do the negotiations, but do want to finalize them. This also goes for renewing contracts in the first team. I don't want him to negotiate and finalize a contract to a player that I wish to let a contract expire.
  10. This might have been mentioned earlier, but I miss reviewing U-23 and U-18 matches and clicking on each individual to read comment on how each fared in the match. FM17 only gives a rating.

    Football Manager 2017 Features Video

    So does FM2017 have licensing to the Premier League logos and faces? Or did Miles have a logo pack and face pack loaded?

    Work Permit Problem

    Thanks for clearing that up. Looks like I'll have to wait a year before he can play for me.

    Work Permit Problem

    Being from America I am confused by your work permit rules. The player in question is Nir Bitton who has played for Celtic for 4 years and was under contract with them for 3 more years until I bought him. If Scotland and England are both in the UK, why wouldn't this be an automatic work permit grant? Is Scotland considered totally separate when it comes to the work permit issue? He has played 28 matches for Israel. Looks like I may have to loan him out to a Scottish club.
  14. Playing as Wolves, now in Premiership. Signed an Israeli who played for Celtic. Didn't realize he would need a work permit. Applied, rejected, appealed, rejected again. Signed him anyway. Need a club to send him to on loan. Will any European club do? My board has rejected me getting an affiliate.
  15. This might have been reported earlier, but since the 16.3.0 update my Body Language widget has no information in it except for the players' names.
