  1. Alright no worries, cheers for the response
  2. But I'm guessing this can only be done pre-game? Rather than 6 or 7 years in?
  3. I want to add my Borussia Dortmund B team to 3.Liga because they don't currently play any competitive games except for the U23 International Premier Division. Is there any way to do this via the editor, or failing that, creating a U23 league? (I don't want to say U23 European Super League but that's what I have in mind)
  4. I've just noticed a strange situation with the German national team. I'm currently in the year 2026 managing Dortmund and I noticed my 25 year old, £63Million valued, starting right back, Josha Vagnoman, has 0 caps for the national team. Out of curiosity I checked the squad to see who was keeping him out, only to discover the entire squad was made up of greyed out new-gens, which I call placeholder players, normally seen when a squad not in the database doesn't have enough real players loaded in. Furthermore, the German team doesn't show up on the Job Centre or Job Security pages. They al
  5. I have recently started the 2025/26 season with Dortmund. I have just hired a new manager for my B team due to my previous one moving on. This is the second manager I've had for the B team since the start of the save and for the previous 5 seasons my B team has used the same tactics as my first team. However, now the tactic has changed from a flat 4-3-3 to a cautious 5-3-2, a formation that doesn't fit any of the players in my B squad that I've spent my time building with an eye on bring players into my first team throughout the seasons. The formation isn't even the first or second favou
  6. I find it really hard to settle on a team in the first month or so of every new game, there's too many teams floating around in my head that I want to have a look at, I make it about 3 or 4 games into a save and then get distracted by thoughts of how I could use the squad of a certain team to play a certain tactic, the furthest I've made it Into a save is November with PSV but I've started 4 saves since I last played that, however I know I'll go back to PSV at some point as they've been my favourite team to manage since fm13
  7. With it being the international break, I was was wandering what kind of players you've seen or had that changed nationalities and became a key player for that chosen national team. I have two that come to mind immediately from fm19. Firstly, when I was managing PSV, Angelino, the left back who since resigned for City irl, after five seasons for me in Holland switched allegiances from Spain to the Netherlands, plugging one of the few gaps I believe that national squad has Secondly, whilst managing Man Utd, I signed Alex Telles and gave him a clause in his contract doubling his w
  8. I'm not an arsenal fan, so I didnt see the point of purchasing the special arsenal edition of fm20, however, I read somewhere that the arsenal team would still be licensed in the normal version of the game which increased my interest in managing the team in the beta, however from the off I noticed that the badge is an FM generated badge rather than the iconic badge of arsenal. Does anyone know the extent of the licensing available for arsenal in the game? Will it be available in the full game after the beta period? Or was the information wrong?
  9. So now the beta is out, who is everyone managing to start it off? I've gone in with Leipzig to make use of the ridiculous young talent they have throughout the sqaud.
  10. I got sacked by Salford on this current fm after a horrid time with injuries left me battling for a playoff spot when the board wanted automatic promotion, I thought it was a bit harsh as the players I had out injured, didn’t have long left and would have been good enough to spur my promotion push
  11. I cannot, for the life of me, get any strikers to play consistently for me across any of my saves this year, apart from one season with Tammy Abraham in the championship in the 2021/22 season leading me to promotion with a 28 goal haul, I can’t think of any other strikers that have been able to get me 20 goals a season in all competitions let alone in the league. Has anyone else seen this in their own FM19 career and does anyone have any advice? I’ve used most striking roles in various combinations and set ups, currently using Moussa Dembele in an Advanced Forward role in a 4231 con
  12. If i was as good at making a profit in real life as I am on fm I probably wouldn’t spend so much time on fm
  13. I’ve never managed a big club in the top 5 leagues other than in England, but even that is only when I look at what’s happening irl and think “I could do better with that squad” or if I feel a particular big 6 team would present a good rebuild opportunity, such as my current save at Chelsea on fm19, but this only started to tide me over until fm20. I like saves such as PSV and Benfica because they might be strong in their respective leagues, but you really need to buy and sell constantly and make consistent profits in order to survive in Europe while maintaining your national form and tha
  14. I’m definitely gonna go back to Lyon for a save, they only lost mendy and ndombele but I feel they replaced them well so I’m looking forward to endings PSGs reign of terror
