  1. Imagine not realising certain licensing situations have completely changed this year and are really quite complicated.
  2. Yep - I think Pogba needs to probably go up a fair bit, £290k seems to be the most commonly reported figure (typo possibly? I’ll claim it...)
  3. Going to need a better source than that. There are lots of different websites out there that claim to have the right figures. Lingard’s salary in that list is clearly incorrect so I’m instantly dubious. €17m net is roughly £300k a week after tax - I’m not at all convinced Pogba is on that. That said, should probably be on more than De Gea so will look to amend that (although I suspect we’re past data lock now so won’t be immediate). More than open to reviewing this because - as swansongs says - we can only really estimate based on the better-sourced media outlets around, but you’ll need to persuade me why this list is any more reliable than all the others out there, especially when it clearly contains errors.
  4. I’d have thought as a former researcher you’d be familiar with the concept of not overreacting to the first 10/12 games of a season (especially with the obvious mitigation of a manager essentially going to war with the board and many of the squad) but... well, best not to go there maybe. We’ve made some tweaks to tactics, the manager as well as individuals through the process but can’t say I’ve seen a dominant United side in any of my test runs - a couple of close title challenges but mainly lots of 3rd/4th finishes. As we’ve seen in the past (Chelsea in Mourinho’s last season springs to mind), it’s tough to reflect when a clearly talented squad is massively underperforming (especially when you can’t control who the AI goes out and signs). We’ve tried various things to do that and got closer I think as we’ve gone through builds (Mourinho was sacked with United in 6th in a soak I ran last night) but taking an axe to the ratings of a squad that finished 2nd last season isn’t the way to do it.
  5. Those dates are the dates the players returned in real life. Should be the same at all clubs where World Cup representatives were given extra time off
  6. It’s definitely both. Make sure you don’t run out of tinfoil there
  7. The one-year extension on those and other contracts are present in the database but aren’t showing up in the game for some reason. Hopefully will be resolved soon. Greenwood is already rated very highly and (I believe) fairly - I’ve watched him plenty and am well aware how good he is. Certain attributes could maybe go up a point or two in an ideal world but attributes have to be balanced against CA and compromises often have to be made for younger players. If he keeps performing as he is and ideally translates that to U23 football at some point then he’ll be improved again.
  8. None of them are set as AM in the database - no-one is, to reflect the situation in real-life. Plan was to use non-player tendencies to ensure the club operated without one for now, but if we’re not going to be able to do this and the game is just going to choose a coach at random then we’ll look to set McKenna or Carrick as the AM as the best solution.
  9. No. The data was locked before that Sunderland game and no player is boosted on the back of one good performance anyway (not that he has had only one good performance).
  10. They're not mentioned in the instructions for setting up media sources though (found in the original 'add_my_media_sources/journalists' files.
  11. I don't think you can add those, these files are for media sources only, and a kit sponsor isn't a media source.
  12. <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">Originally posted by mwalker99: the debt the Manchester United have in the game is right but i dont think the financial model can handle such extremeties also i doubt that all the sponsership deals are in place as the Man Utd advertising machine will be churning out the money </div></BLOCKQUOTE> there are some sponsorship deals that i'd love to include in the game but there is just no information on the duration and financial worth of the contract, which possibly means that in-game the club aren't getting all the income they should, so the debt is hitting slightly harder than it really should. there have been four new deals added to the database since the last data update which i hope will help people out a bit. from my experience with the game though, problems with administration are very avoidable and present and interesting (but not too difficult) challenge.
  13. what has this got to do with you as a manager? how much say do you think club managers have over stadium matters or ticket prices? that sort of stuff is best left to fifa manager.
  14. squads for pre-season tours and european away games, in much the same way as you pick a squad for the champions league. stops the unrealistic ability to be able to call up any player from back home to play a friendly in japan at a moment's notice etc. but i'd settle for no new features at all if the match engine and tactical side of the game is significantly improved.
