  1. I don’t think this is a bug per se, which is why I am posting here. at end of season and following successful campaign, board adjust transfer funds based on, for example Continental cup qualification, and review of vision. However, reputation of club doesn’t seem to adjust until the start of the following season (I understand why for processing etc). however, the transfer window will open some months before, and in my experience many players aren’t interested in signing / negotiating until the start of new season when the reputation has been improved and participation in continental cup confirmed. This is a tad tedious and annoying to therefore have to wait until later in summer transfer window to approach and sign a player - often missing out when they join an established club earlier in the summer. Perhaps a feature to dynamise the reputation or improve the mechanism that informs level of interest players have in signing for a club that is based on performance at in the just completed season / anticipated reputation changes for the following season. thanks.
  2. Hi - Team originally from VNL S/N has U23 / reserve team created in a later season - but no way to enter U23 league. No option to enter given (as per U18 at outset of season). No option on board/club vision or on U23 team page.
  3. Ok a bit of context for something that has really irritated me and I think needs looking into. I have signed young players with great potential on long term domestic loans. They each have excellent potential and ability has grown with the stature of club during promotion campaigns, such that I renew the loan the following year. Parent club appears reluctant to offer new contract To player out on loan (Is this a bug as the player is loaned out, even though they are classed as wonderkids at this stage and appears an oversight they wouldn’t want to renew for prospect players). Player has great affinity to my club, relationship with manager and fans love him; they are a leader in dressing room due to time spent at club. i can’t offer a pre-contract deal as he is a same-nation loan. However a foreign club, with questionable prospects, swoops in and offers shocking deal to player immediately upon 6 months to go... Player accepts. Then plays crap for remainder of season as he is “looking forward to new challenge” there is no way to interact with the loan player and say, I’d love to sign you, but can you wait for 6 months where it will be possible for me to do so. however, On the other hand, if i approach most foreign-based players approaching end of contract, they would say “keeping options open Until closer to end of contract” and won’t negotiate, yet will re-sign with the club without exploring said options with me! doesnt seem reasonable that you can’t Have that convo and state intentions to sign or “promise” a contract at end of loan to the player, especially when they regard the club and manager as one of favourites... thanks!
  4. Hello all, Fm/cm has been my addiction since 1996. Marriage took my free time away from me and so I have not played properly since Fm12/13. This year I am back and I decided to serialise my fm journey, taking the mighty Solihull Moors from the Vanarama North to European Dominance, in YouTube episodes which I would love to share with you all and can be found here: playedbyjp So far I have found the free transfer market more challenging than previous years and the club seems to keep leaking money (sack the chief financial officer, not me!!). How is everyone else getting on in their own lower league save? jp
