  1. got a long rest from the game, and trying to get back to it and learning the new functions. i do remember back in the day that the way you created your save could make or break how easy or hard the leagues/transfers could be, so i wanted to ask, how many leagues you feel its too much? and how bad leagues that i put as non playable are? because i wanted to try a very low end league first, so was thinking i could probably reach CL qualifiers early in the save, but would the teams from nation like denmark or belarus be too weak if they are not playable? i don't exactly want an unrealistic equal match of a estonian team vs belarus' champion want to keep the the number of leagues a bit low since my pc had issues with saves with too many leagues back in the day, and this being a newer instalation of the game, it may be more demanding for my pc, so want to try at a low count first
  2. That is exactly what im looking for, i was playing in gibraltar earlier and got that same mail. What i want is know who got out of UK in a save, since that actually affects some registrations rules for foreigners since say, wales now is not treated as non foreigner like pre brexit or a scenario where wales doesn't go out of UK
  3. Im a actually looking how to know who leaved UK in my save, in order to know what nations can i get u18 player from after brexit
  4. So i have an old save from fm17 that im playing again, found a promising 15 yo forward with a nice stat spread and very high PA in scotland I know that england teams can get UK players before 18yo like they were the same nation or EU, but since this save is at 2063 is obviously way past the brexit outcome I identified that this save has a normal brexit (registration with 17 non England trained players limit) Problem is, idk what nations leaved the UK, is there a way to identify this? As i don't want to sign this guy just so he gets stuck on a mid table scotland team with bad training grounds for 3 seasons
  5. Well, low ranked leagues normally have little quantity of teams in the top flight so at most you'll get a 10ish teams playing 4 times in a season (croatian league like) or league changing to champions/relegation split (like scotland) for a 38 game season just look at the rules of any league with 20 teams and see if they play 2 games against each team but then again, most low ranked leagues have a low amount of teams in the top league so looking for one that plays more than twice against each team would be better
  6. While looking for 5 star coaches since 3 of my coaches got taken away from me in favor of a manager spot in a lower league i kind of had this idea. It is possible to identify future 5 star coaches? As in have national badge but very good stats for that badge? I could sign them and pay their badges and have them in my u18-23 as workload reducers and after they get the stats needed i could promote them to first team coach Until now i have found only one, one that somehow sticked with me since L2 football and now is a 5 star tactics coach
  7. @Novem9 Teams normally never show their finances to anyone outside of the club so no reason to show more. Now if we talk about say showing that x team's owner is a psg owner like the game could tell you, other than that we don't really know how much has say...newcastle, or city. we can estimate that city has a bunch of money, but bunch of money is still finite and has to use money to operate anyway so all that money is not even usable to begin with What the game really needs in this matter in my eyes is a more extense "finance status" spectrum like rich could be separeted in 3 more status like rich, football top financial force and world wide corporation (just an example, im not used to financial terms in english) same could be done for the others, that way there is a little more details that are actually visible to the world, we know Real Madrid has money and are rich, but why didn't they bought some super player other than courtois? Maybe they didn't have sooo much money like most people think, so they are rich, but not at the top of football in terms of money, heck, im sure the difference in money between Madrid and any mid table PL team is similaror madrid is ahead just by some tens of millions
  8. I never really retire, as i never reached that kind of age (i always start as a 20ish manager so 50 seasons is a lot) i guess i could do a lil role play and retire myself and create a manager with the name one of my clubs' legends and start there
  9. Thats what normally happens with that kind of players with low stats they can sometimes give you a lot of good games but once the first bad game appears its time to think about benching him happened to a youth player with 1.5 star played a superd game against a league 1 team, gave him a chance in the league against the second to last and performed greatly, i started to rotate him with my first team strikers he was near them in goal scored, after an awful 5.2 rating game from him near winter transfer window i loaned him, got a nice boost to 2.5 stars thanks to that performance but he wasn't quite ready for fist team regular football, he just shined a bit and got lucky (he is tall, but lacks pace/acc as the guy you mention) Anyway i do consider form for my team selection, a key player with a sub 6.8 rating in the last 5 games gets a 2 games in a row bench "fine" with a possible sub appearance in the second one, if his replacement does good he gets rotation treatment until replacement drops in performance or the key player starts performing over 7 rating
  10. Options open = wait if a better team is interested/wait for the team's final standing to make a decision Its never wise to let a contract go below 18 months if you are thinking of keeping him, if you can only offer 2 year contracts at most then you have to plan ahead in case this happens The only thing you can do is A) selling to the first one that comes with a decent offer (enough to afford at least near half of his replacement) you will get pocket change most of the time tho as they are in their last year B) wait and hope they don't get interest from teams with better reputation/league than you, players normally give current team an extra point in contract negotiations so unless you offer them way lower than they want or the other teams are of better reputation/league you are almost guarranted of renew them
  11. You could say he has been lucky then, try play another season if the guy isn't sold or made bench warmer by thay point and see if the performance stays, it could be his dream season, i mean i remember back in fm17 that somehow the forward from the 20th in premier league was the top scorer with a 2 star CA and a normal stat spread (good, but not amazing, could be a decent 3rd choice for me) beating my world class forward that was better is most stats and have a very good stats spread after that season that random player got the same amount of goals of that golden season in the next 3 seasons added until he was buried in the championship I mean, 2 or 3 points in pace/acceleration doesn't mean big smoke vs CJ in a race, it just that he was at the right place at the right time 3 goals are realistic due to height, 2 were gk errors, it can happen, free kicks are a gamble so that goal was like a bonus 4 other goals, lets say 2 of those are where defender have a similar or lower pace/acc, the 2 other could very well be the rngod being nice to that player
  12. Don't mind it that much is just the game looking for something negative to put in the report, they are upset yeah, but they aren't the ones deciding your future in the team, if you have success its unimportant who you sold, they forget about it by the next season
  13. Thats why you see players performing on certain teams and not in others you could buy the ballon d'or winner and he could get a sub 7.0 rating on your team because you play with say, a F9 and the guy is a better playing as a target man for mid/low table team due to counter/defensive tactics that use the targetman better add that to a near max tall player with 20 at jumping and strength with decent stats in all other stats and boom! A top scorer
  14. I kind of support OP's point, i could see players from a mid-low table saying that of bournemouth or fulham, but not a player in the team leading the championship, heck even the leeds situation proves the "dream" move is a little extreme, dream move should be a team on mid table of the next tier, not a team fighting for relegation/mid low table i could see the "i want to play in the premiership" moan, but not a "dream" same happened to one of my players wanting to go to madrid, he was gone on a free since madrid was behind him a 3 whole years and couldn't renew his contract. After he was gone madrid got eliminated from CL in group stage and i won it for what he leaved? The difference between both clubs was small (both at 5 stars) i guess the problem here is the reputation difference is too low for that to trigger
  15. Loan only if you can't affort to use him at least as rotation (as a sub/playing him to rest a first teamer) leave him available to play U23 so he keeps a good shape U23 does makes the player progress but not as much as playing 20ish games for you or a full season for a mid table/top team Follow Snorks' rules, if no team meets that criteria for a loan then try to play him in cups/non strong teams to not stagnate him
  16. Im not sure about the points given but im sure that EFL cup league indeed gives points, checkatrade doesn't give afaik as that cup is played by the U23 team so the U23 manager gets the points (if gives any)
  17. They are just there for other options in contracts, there is not impact at all, players won't accept huge goal bonuses if wage is lowered a lot, also player won't accept hugely lowered bonuses if wage is not increased this are just monetary figures, nothing to do with performance, you can make players accept lower wages if bonuses are high even add non reacheable bonuses for them to accept like offering relegation release clause when your team is at the top (less effective than with low table teams)

  19. Game won't recognize the difference, happened to me in 17 and 19, unfair? Maybe but at the same time think about the player's point of view, you are at the exact same situation (kinda) but in premier league, the player thinks he is capable of playing for a another low table team (or even get a offer from top teams) so will want crazy money Just play the season and hope for a miracle 17th finish if you do some wise signings is possible to survive any back to back promotion or surprise promotion
  20. Brasil have the state leagues (piece of cake for uber teams) argentina and i think uruguay or paraguay also has the average points where you could not get relegated if get a monaco like season due to your performance in the last 3 season, other leagues are straight forward all vs all league, some add a playoff or a 2 part league (kinda like summer/winter league) where the champions of each part get to play for the title You won't see weird stuff like USA/Australia systems
  21. If you mean the bonuses for winning the league and stuff that cut your transfer budget, the only thing noticeable is a boost in morale so it can improve team performance, lets just say it will make the players less relaxed as they can go from getting a 200k+ on wages and contract bonuses per week to getting that plus a nice 3M more or less more in one go, some players don't mind it that much for ex. Messi/Ronaldo don't mind much about it as they already have all the money they need/wish Stats wise there is no change, but i would assume that under the hood it has to change something else like making the players more prone to give the 110% and not just play at their 80% against huddersfield
  22. Well, thats actually normal, thats why Balotelli, Hulk, Robinho, Bojan, etc. Didn't shine, there is also playing time plus decent/good level competition, thats why teams like southampton produce so many playera, they play a rather neutral level in the best league in the world, almost any non star could play a lot of games as they have no super player demanding to play 80% of the games. For the record, any time i took a team in championship/low premier league regens with very good PA would just sky rocket after a season or 2 i have also seem player i loan with 2 stars CA sky rocketing to 4 CA in half a season you could be doing something terrible wrong, expecting too much or seeing the stars rating too much
  23. Agents are like that if you get them on thier bad side, maybe you have a bad reputation with him, but 160M is just nuts you do have to wait for mbappe to transfer list himself by request to drop down the price tag, also, it could be good to get in his agent's good side by signing some of his players (you could just sign decent prospects or decent player that are cheap and loan to recover your money) that way you could get a 75% discount on that fee and even lower mbappe's wage and bonuses
  24. Yeah having a rather easy group helped them, but what i found more amusing is that 4 out 5 african nation reached round of 16 and only the top 2 nation in south america reached that phase
  25. Afaik, they will generate regens i kinda remember seeing the names of their actual players, but i think that was in fm17 or 16
