  1. How many leagues/players do you have active? If its every division and 200k+ players then all the background computing will take its toll, if its a small database with a couple of leagues then your understanding of "pretty powerful" in FM terms is incorrect
  2. Surely does nothing though, because all the leagues are inactive and have no teams playing in them, otherwise they would just be in the game to start with Just use one thats already been made
  3. There is no such thing, you need to download and use a created version claassen has one that goes down to the "9th" tier although there's prob others if you look on the steam workshop
  4. As above, if your in the champions league you make £30m or so by the group stages, so it wont matter, the same way in your first promoted season it got ignored because you made £100m or so extra in TV/Prize money, Its to stop teams down the lower end of the league going into debt by paying out more in wages than they bring in
  5. Is it not explained in game? the FFP screen will show you why and by how much you are failing Your balance/bank account doesn't matter, Its purely income vs expenditure, where you can make a 4.5m loss (+ ~£20m investment) so say -£25m, All the sponsorships are paid at the start of the season (so editing them mid-game wont make any difference until next season) Pretty sure that if sponsors more than 30% of your total income are ignored anyway to stop owners just sponsoring their own team £500m a year to get around it Depending on what team your playing you will never have enough incom
  6. the AI behavior regarding transfers and team selection is baffling, They spend silly money on a players and never even play them, Most I've spent on a player is 2m, Looking at the players I've sold.. £16m for Gaudino has played 8 games in 2 seasons, £14m for flanigan (15 games). Looking at others teams, Pavlenka (a 28yr GK i've never heard of has been at both PSG & Chelsea (with £30+m in transfer fee's and has never played a game), Icardi & Milinkovic-Savic average 10 games a season for £100m each. Tierney bought for £36m averages 10 games a season, Madrid bought Srabia for £30m a
  7. There are just so many tactics that make the game "easy" (don't even use gegenpress) I would be surprised if you couldn't reach the CL final with any of the bigger teams 1st season even without spending any money. With Rangers (and no save scumming, based on game information I saved once every 8 hours) 1st season I reached the EL Semi (won the first leg 4-0 and then lost 6-0 away against Inter) 2nd season I lost in the Semi of the CL To Athletico- who finished 2nd in my group (Won 3-1 and lost 5-2 away) With a first 11 on a combined £145k a week, only buying free transfers and a max wage of 25
  8. Depends how many players you have at u18, If there's only a few your as well to just do it yourself, once the numbers get higher I set the assistant/youth manager to do it and just look in every month or so to make sure players are being trained in the correct positions, If not you can change them (just pick the first option to be for a month then return to assistant)
  9. What I can recommend is that you give them a lot of game time (or loan them out as key player) even if they are dross or don't fit your formation try and shoehorn them in somewhere. Somebody sitting in your squad never playing is close to impossible to sell but you can take a random from your under 18/21's play them in 60%+ of matches and get an offer for them for probs double their actual value Mostly play as Rangers, but recently started a game as Spurs, had llorente transferred-list until the window closed including offering him to everyone for 1/3rd of his value (4m) no interest at al
  10. Champions league only counts goals/assists from the group stage(regardless of what the stats say for awards), as I had a boy in my squad who had 28 goals and lost in top goalscorers (I assume Europa League & every other big tournament is the same) 13 goals in 21 games :/ 28 goals in 21 games (5 assists) lost to the below 16 goals in 13 games (0 assists)
  11. No... Simple answer All those youtube video's etc have left it on holiday while they went to bed/work etc

  13. Your not showing the player or his position... but PA is also considered, otherwise you would be able to sign all the regens/youths in the world for 50p each because they have never "played well" over the course of a season
  14. Nothing official but https://sortitoutsi.net/football-manager-data-update Updated daily so you can pretty much play fm 18 with the "current" teams
