    [Italy] (Official) Data Issues

    There's about a dozen of real Italian players in the database with second nationality from the Dominican Republic (most notably the Espinal brothers), and I haven't seen an Italian regen with Dominican Republic second nationality or vice versa after checking with Genie Scout on multiple saves so I hope the chance for this occurrence to happen is added and if it already is hopefully it can be considerably increased.

    [U.S.A.] (Official) League Specific Issues

    Trades should have more options such as sell-on percentages, selling team salary contributions and appearance fees as trades with these options have been done before.

  3. You should try to go to a bigger league (maybe in the US or Europe) and see if you can develop top Grenadian talent there in an effort to possibly make Grenada qualify for a tournament such as the Gold Cup or World Cup and try to do well in them.

    [U.S.A.] (Official) Data Issues

    Newgens wise: There's a lot of Hispanic American newgens in non-MLS academies that don't have a second nationality. This is most likely done to prevent an overflow of second nationality newgens switching to other countries but it would be nice to see more of the Hispanic named newgens actually getting the second nationality of a Spanish speaking country instead of them having none at all for added realism. There should be a increase in the percentage of American newgens with New Zealand second nationality and Guamanian second nationality. Mostly for players with New Zealand second nationality as a lot of Kiwi youth players are coming up through the U.S. ranks. But there should be a chance for at least one or two Guamanian-American newgens every 5 years since there are quite a few Guamanian national team players who were born in the U.S. and came up through their system. (eg. AJ DeLaGarza most famously and he is not an outlier) I think this is a more league specific issue but I will mention anyways how PDL "college" clubs should have more foreign players than usual to make the MLS SuperDraft more diverse just how it is in real life. There are two ways I see of fixing this: having the PDL be more able to sign worthy enough foreign players from abroad, or have them spawn a few foreign 18-22 year olds on newgen day from a club in another country. This would make the SuperDraft more vast and realistic and creates more scenarios such as deciding whether or not you should draft a good player because he might take up an international slot.

    [Germany] (Official) Data Issues

    FC Bayern should have GPS Puerto Rico and GPS Maine (known as Portland Pheonix in-game) as affiliate clubs. https://www.gpspuertorico.com/page/show/2448608-fc-bayern https://www.gps-maine.com/page/show/3643554-fc-bayern

    [U.S.A.] (Official) Data Issues

    This is still an issue as his CA is still 79, and I think his CA should be be even higher (95-105) now that he's a regular starter for Vancouver. Also, Mo Adams (29132020) and Mo Adams (72051156) are duplicated. I would remove the Mo Adams that is ID 29132020 as he's the one with 50 CA and no club.

    [Sweden] (Official) Data Issues

    Nation Transfer Preferences Nation: USA Rating: Most players (or fairly high profile) In recent years there's been quite a lot of American/MLS players moving to Sweden (mostly the lower divisions like the Superettan) due to their league systems running on similar schedules. Notable examples include Romain Gall, Brendan Hines-Ike, Yura Movsisyan, Sean Okoli, Ryo Fujii, Chad Barson, and Josh Wicks just to name a few.

    [North America] (Official) Data Issues

    I've spoken to the Caribbean head researcher @V50, and he said he will try to update the Dominican Republic national team by the next data update or FM19. But in the meantime, you can make a database update with the editor that includes all the transfers for the nation. You can also apply to be the head researcher for the Dominican Republic if you have close enough ties to football in the nation. A lot of Caribbean countries, just like most African/Oceanian/smaller Asian countries don't have head researchers which leads to a lot of low priority data (such as small transfers within those countries' leagues) not being handled for long periods of time. Sadly, I don't think I meet the requirements to be a researcher but you can definitely try to apply if you want to.

    [Austria] (Official) Data Issues

    His situation goes under this exception: those acquiring another nationality at birth, such as children born to Austrian parents in another country, thus automatically gaining citizenship of that country, or those born with an Austrian and a foreign parent. He was born in La Vega, Dominican Republic with Austrian/Dominican parents so he would have both still under that rule I believe.

    [Austria] (Official) Data Issues

    Christian Schoissengeyr (16067366) should be set to Dominican Republic as his main nationality, as he was called up to their national team's friendly against Nicaragua. The source is in Spanish but if you translate it, it will be fine: http://futbolnica.net/2017/10/23/conociendo-al-rival-rep-dominicana/

    [North America] (Official) Data Issues

    The reputation and youth ratings of the Cayman Islands and the Dominican Republic should be switched. Despite the Cayman Islands being near the bottom of the FIFA Rankings, rarely ever playing international matches in real life, and having their main national team players average at around 40-50 CA, they're higher in reputation and youth rating to the Dominican Republic who is 163 in the World Rankings, a way more developed nation player, national team, and league wise, and having their main domestic national team players average at around 60-70 CA. Another nation that should see a reputation and youth rating increase is Belize, who is 161 in the world rankings and have impressed in 2018 World Cup qualification reaching the third round before being knocked out by Canada. Surely their reputation can't be below nations like the Bahamas, the Cayman Islands and Bonaire based on the quality of their players/teams?

    Empire F.C. in Antigua and Barbuda was never New England Revolution's affiliate. The affiliate is supposed to be Empire United in the NAL Northeast Division. https://www.revolutionsoccer.net/post/2012/05/07/revs-add-empire-united-youth-development-partner

    [U.S.A.] (Official) Data Issues

    Jake Nerwinski has a very low CA for someone who's started in 22 games this year for Vancouver and has greatly impressed. The pre-game editor says his CA is 79, and I believe that should be bumped up to around 87-92 for January.

    [U.S.A.] (Official) Data Issues

    Ivan Cardona (43391102), Alessandro Bartoletti (43391080), and Matteo Francisconi (43391171) don't play for Reno 1868 FC. I don't know where they actually play, but my guess is that they were supposed to be placed in Vis Pesaro 1898 but were instead put in Reno 1868 due to the teams having similar names.
