  1. I took a look in the editor, they indeed have a maximum age of 17 set, which can be removed. But you would need to save an editor file with this change and start a new save for this to take effect.
  2. So I wasn't quite able to let go of my Ajax Cape Town FM19 save after calling quits on the thread I did here. After ending the thread I kept playing and made Ajax the dominant force in South Africa, but the CAF Champions League kept eluding us. But now after 7 seasons we've finally done it, winning 7-1 over the Algerian team that knocked us out at the quarter final stage last year, with our club legend 34-year-old Thabo Mosadi scoring two goals including a 30-yard curler in his final game as a player. I'm so unbelievably proud of this team! Kinda started crying after this went in!
  3. Glad to see you're giving this another go! Looking forward to seeing your (and maybe Will Bird's) journey around the counties and up the leagues.
  4. Are you going to document this on FMCU? I really like this idea!!
  5. With the release of FM21 I've decided to put a bow on this save, at least in documented form. It was a very enjoyable ride for me, as it was by far my most successful managerial spell across any FM I've played. I hope to return to South Africa in a future game, even if Ajax Cape Town won't be playing under that name anymore. Either the newly-renamed Cape Town Spurs or the two Thohoyandou clubs (Black Leopards and Tshakhuma) would be my target, and I'd recommend each as a worthwhile save to anyone interested in playing here. Thank you to anyone who read, especially @Crazy_Ivan , whose SA n
  6. Ajax Cape Town 2020/21 Results and Review First Period During the First Period, we advanced to the Group Stage of the CAF Champions League with wins over Senegalese champions ASC Diaraf and Bissau-Guinean champions Os Balantas, lost the CAF Super Cup to three-time defending CL winners ES Tunis in a close game, were eliminated from the MTN 8 at the semi final stage after a second-leg collapse against Orlando Pirates, and made a mixed start to Premiership play, with highlights being another win over Mamelodi Sundowns, a 4-0 smacking of AmaZulu, and a wild 5-3 win over Cape Umoya Unite
  7. Just sent my votes in. How are we looking with the amount of votes so far?
  8. Well done on finishing the save, I really enjoyed reading all of your threads this year. Good luck on FM21!
  9. Good effort against Olimpija! Also sad to see what happened to Vrsic. As he's a former Maribor guy I feel especially bad that he might retire due to injury. I hope he can pull through.
  10. Yep, I saw it on Twitter. It's definitely a shame because the Ajax connection is the only reason I've gone to Cape Town on this save, but they'll always be Ajax CT in my mind and on this thread of course. Would have loved to come back here in future FMs, but I don't think "Cape Town Stars" has the same effect on me.
  11. Ajax Cape Town 2020/21 Pre-Season Transfers Out Total: $1.6 million We’d known since last season that Raymond Monama and Sedwyn George would be departing for Kaizer Chiefs on a free. Though I don’t think there was a better way for them to leave than by winning three trophies in their final season. Also, Boiki Modisakeng’s loan from AmaZulu was not renewed, as I found a better option at right back. The big transfer news came from Portugal, as Porto decided to go in for our two young stars Kiyaam Bull and Riyaaz Koopstadt, who I knew we probably wouldn’t be able to keep
