  1. I'm a premiership manager after gaining promotions from the conference, and I'm still getting linked to jobs from lower league teams, and asked at interviews if I'm interested...
  2. Ok, here's an update. I went on holiday for 3 years now, each year trying to see if the option is there to upgrade my training facilities, and the only option is to upgrade my youth facilities. I have been playing this save game for over a month now, I'm very disappointed, I always rely on developing my own players, and having poor training facilities doesn't help at all!!! I really need some feedback on what can I do to save my game here. Can I use an editor JUST to make the board request option appear??
  3. Hello, I'm not complaining here, I've just got a couple of questions/remarks for my Solihull Moors save. After a decade or so of in-game LLM football, I just managed promotion to the Premiership. While the team was in conference, I got an affiliate club with impressive training facilities, I think it was Loughborough University or something. So I was extremely happy to keep that affiliation since my training facilities were very poor. Now being in the Premier League and having millions in the bank, I decided to stop the affiliation, so that I improve my training facilities (an option never available since I had shared facilities). Problem is, the option to request the upgrade is not there (I stopped the affiliation in June and now it's July). Moreover, I have the feeling - from previous Fms that was the case - that it will take many years to fully upgrade the facilities, half a star each year. I understand that managing to promote a conference team to the Premiership is unrealistic, but since this unrealistic outcome is possible in FM, then surely a newly promoted club in the premier league can upgrade training facilities from very poor to decent in a year or so? And the final thing that bothers me, the club has a longterm affiliate (Birmingham) that says my youth players share training facilities with Birmingham. What exactly does this mean? Is upgrading my youth facilities of no use? Any feedback welcome. Thanks
  4. Thank you so much for the quick reply, save game uploaded named "Solihull Moors pantelas"
  5. Projected balance for the year 394 million euros. Transfer budget 240 million, spending 3,346,854 million per week on wages (wage budget = 5,913,200 per week). More details here: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=493256775 Just finished year 2034, same youth level category again, board saying in the summary that it is due to financial constraints. I requested once more an increase, "although they understand", rejected due to lack of funding. So what's up with that?
  6. Hello, I'm in year 2033 with my long-term save playing as Solihull Moors. Won everything, 6 consecutive premiership titles, 3 Champions League titles... Now, I know this isn't a big thing, but 2 years ago my board decided to lower the youth level, I don't remember the reason, I think it had something with facilities' quality dropping (the facilities later were upgraded to the fullest, both training and youth). So now my youth teams play in the second tier. Now I tried twice to request for youth level to increase, and the board denies my request....even though they agree with me .....due to...............lack of FUNDING? And I'm the richest club in the world.. So...what is up with that??\ Anyone experienced this?
  7. Just an update on my thread guys, I'm enjoying a long-term save , playing in 2030 now in the Premier League, and really struggling to find good staff, either regen or retired players. By good staff I mean at least 4.5*. Searching staff with good DDM (at least 15 on each), there are too few of them, and from them, their coaching attributes aren't near as good as staff at the start of the game. I'd like to know of other players' experience on this. ps. I have huge database and players loaded with continental reputation from all continents.
  8. yes, I'm a hardcore FM player:) Even have an FM coach calculator tab open all the time just to make sure!
  9. I'm questioning it as an ACHIEVEMENT, is it really an achievement? An achievement is something that can be achieved by trying, not by praying for a VERY slim random chance that in theory can happen. OK I admit I'm a completionist as a player, but I do have to ask, has anyone ever even come close to 5* in every category?
  10. Hello there, i'm talking about the practice makes perfect achievement, to have 5-star coaches in all categories. So...............currently in my long-term save (2025) with Solihull Moors in the Premier League....anyway, I have been searching for 5-star coaches in this save game every few months, and in every save game i have been playing in FM series. The closest I can get is to have 2 Fitness coaches, sometimes I was able to get a Tactics coach as well with 5 stars. So.... REALLY...is there ANYONE here that has managed WITHOUT editing to find 5 stars coaches in all categories - let alone SIGN them in their team?? Why SI do you have such an achievement locked if it can never be unlocked?
  11. Pipson, thanks for a solid tactic, tried it with Spurs and won the league in first season. Just a quick question that was left unanswered, what OI, training and match preparation settings do you use?
  12. Ok, quick update, I am very very disappointed. I decided to do a little test. Saved my current game and went on holiday (December season 3), returned a couple of months later (Feb 1st), and the option to upgrade both junior coaching and youth recruitment network was there!!!!!! OK i say, yippee, let's go back to my current game, and play until Feb 1st, and the option will be available and I will finally get the option to upgrade! Well, guess what, I'm in May, and the board will only let me CUT BACK, yes, CUT BACK on both of them. This is really making my save unplayable, I hate having to rely on farming youth from other teams, my youth candidates have been awful, potential of 2 stars the most. I would REALLY appreciate some feedback here!
  13. Thanks for the reply, Tottenham's facilities are upgraded to the max at the start of the game so that can't be the case. Scouting knowledge is widespread..
  14. Hello, I'm encountering issues with upgrading junior coaching and youth recruitment in a new save. I'm Tottenham, had the option to request the upgrade of both junior coaching (JC) and youth recruitment (YR) at the start of my save, accepted by the board and upgraded to excellent and established respectively. Since then, I'm in the start of year 3, richest club in the world having won the champions league and back to back premiership titles, with worldwide reputation of course. I keep trying to talk to the board so that I upgrade JC or YR, and the option to upgrade is never there, only the request to cut back funding! I haven't requested any upgrades through contract negotiations, since I am aware of a possible bug there, so what can I do? P.S. I know I already posted this in the bugs forum, but since this is the popular part of the forums, I'd really like to see feedback from other users, if this is happening with them as well.
  15. Cleon, I was talking about a save I am playing after the new patch. Now that you say that, maybe the full duration period is required not only when you cancel the tutoring, but also when the tutoring is cancelled by the players (due to conflict) soon after it starts
