  1. It's a common thing. On FM2015 I had Reading play at Charlton's ground whilst the Madejski was expanded then later in the save I had a new stadium built then expanded and I played at Wembley for a season.
  2. There's a few teams in the Swedish leagues who are formed by refugees from Iraq and Syria. Can't remember all of them but the names stand out pretty well. Think one is called Syrianska FC.
  3. I'd like to correct some data issues with Reading City who play in the Hellenic Premier League (9th tier). The stadium they play at is no longer called Scours Lane, it was renamed in 2016 to The Rivermoor. This is ground shared with Woodley united in the 10th tier. (1) Simon Johnson and Sam Woodruff are Manager (2) and Assistant Manager (3) receptively. Both possess a UEFA B Qualification. (3, 4) Harry Grant is no longer at the club. He left in 2017 joining Thatcham Town and is now at North Leigh. (5) Yashwa Romeo retired in 2019 and has recently been appointed manager of Thatcham Town (6, 7) The Away kit colour is yellow. (8) Finally, the nickname is put as "The Moor" this is outdated as it is from when the club were known as Highmoor Ibis. They renamed to Reading City in 2018. A more appropriate nickname would be "Cityzens" or "City". Both are used on their twitter account as hashtags. I hope you'll consider these corrections. 1. https://www.pitchero.com/clubs/readingcityfc/news/updates-around-the-club-1648741.html 2. https://twitter.com/ReadingCityFC/status/1267051985183707136 3. https://www.pitchero.com/clubs/readingcityfc/news/sam-woodruff-appointed-as-assistant-manager-2378042.html 4. https://twitter.com/simmydembels/status/521290322044018688 5. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harry_Grant_(footballer) 6. https://www.footballinbracknell.co.uk/news/transfer-news/43472/yashwa-romeo-and-devonn-reid-depart-reading-city/ 7. https://twitter.com/ReadingCityFC/status/1266750443063062528 8. https://www.directsoccer.co.uk/club-shops/o-_-r/reading-city-fc/supporters-shop
  4. I have a fair bit in my budget, finances described as "okay" and I've had the option to improve youth recruitment (which my board agreed to). Doesn't seem to make sense that I can't also do junior coaching or even request it. It's definitely not maxed out.
  5. Long time player of the game here. I'm playing as Stockholm Internazionale and have gotten them from the fourth tier to the Swedish premier. I like focusing on youth in my saves and as Sweden requires at least 9 homegrown players in the squad it's quite important this time. However, I don't have the option to request extra funding for my junior coaching. I recall ever not being able to request it. Is this a known bug? Is there any workaround not requiring the editor?
  6. Playing in Sweden and only this season have I started to get them. I also turned professional this season so I assume they're linked. If you're semi pro or amateur I think you won't get them.
  7. Based off how some players react, I strongly disagree 😂
  8. I am also currently playing in the Swedish leagues and having tons of fun. I started in the 4th tier with Stockholm Internazionale. Strange cup format with a group stage in the middle. Not much money down there so you're on a bit of a timer to get to the second tier unless you draw a big team in the cup.
  9. Yeah I've seen this before also. It would make sense if the player was being used in a different role but that's not usually the case.
  10. Thank you, very helpful! So from what you've said and from the link you've sent, I figure I shouldn't have my Mezzala on the same side as my inside forward? Perhaps it would be more suitable on the right hand side where I have a winger?
  11. I have some difficulty understanding the Mezzala role. Especially comparing it to the carrilero as both roles operate quite wide as I understand it? How do they compare to a box to box also? I use a Mezzala in the MCL position on support duty and an inside forward on attack in the AML position. I've seen people say this is a bad idea as they operate in similar space and that is a good idea as they combine well. Does anyone have a good explanation of the Mezzala and what other roles it pairs well with? What systems it's most effective in. I'm looking at using the Mezzala in two systems, a 4-1-2-3 DM wide in a control possession style. Two Mezzalas either side of a 3 man CM in a 4-1-3-2 more direct and counter attacking system with aggressive wing backs. I want to use them as I understand they can contribute a lot to scoring and play in the final third, exploiting space and taking shots.
  12. It really depends on what sort of football your team plays. I don't think there's any particular reason a no-nonsense full back couldn't be successful at your level. So long as it makes sense in the system. If you're playing any sort of short passing, tiki taka, or wing play type system I'd probably suggest paying for a wingback. You can also train the guy as a CB if he's that good defensively?
  13. Having lived in Birmingham for 6 years now after growing up in the south east, sometimes I wish I had taken this intensive language course.
  14. I'm playing as Stockholm Internazionale starting in the Swedish 4th tier. The club in fan owned and I'm having serious trouble with my finances. My wages are hardly anything, my players are worthless so can't really be a selling club and there's just not money in Swedish football until the 2nd tier. Is there any way my club can get taken over? Will the fans ever sell my club or provide a cash injection to keep me afloat? I'm guessing no. I got promotion in the first season to the third tier, then came 6th and now in my third season I'm pushing for promotion. I'm over £200k in debt and I worry that if I don't get promoted this season I'm headed for administration unless a takeover happens. Has anyone had any experience either with fan owned clubs or semi-pro clubs in Sweden?
  15. If I recall correctly it was removed some versions ago due to legal issues. I believe it still 'exists' in the game but you need a custom skin to see it.
