  1. Great job - very impressive so far. It's fantastic to see players like Stuart Doig coming through
  2. Interesting idea, I hope it goes well - I also remember reading this article on an air crash where Dutch-Surinamese players returning to Suriname for a game happened: https://www.theguardian.com/football/blog/2017/oct/12/the-forgotten-story-of-the-colourful-xi-tragedy
  3. It seems to be a known issue - if you choose Add/Remove leagues and close FM before the date passes from which the league should be added/removed, then the game 'forgets' that you ask for the addition/removal. It probably would be best to add the leagues just before the date in which the change should happen so you can be sure you won't be about to close out of the game in the mean-time.
  4. Wow! Amazing work! Well done - now the challenge is how to maintain the step-up, in both the Champions League and title defence.
  5. When your team gets to the top of this list, an extra piece of information is added to the bottom of the note, which lists out the 17 players (in the case of Goteborg and Djurgardens here) and then these can be clickable and you can see information about value, club at which they were 'raised' and so on,
  6. Would you consider taking one of the Liechtenstein teams in the lower league Swiss setup? I think it's probably too tough in terms of youth-only, but maybe your balance of youth intakes, local and then some others might work.
  7. I've managed some clubs from Amateur to Semi-Pro to Pro, and no existing players change contract unless you choose to offer them after the club status change. Thus, I had amateur players that I held onto for sentimentality reasons just after we turned Pro. The difference comes when you have youth players come through and they will be offered contract terms, rather than Amateur.
  8. There is a a large Portuguese community in Luxembourg - roughly one sixth of the population in Lux has Portuguese heritage - and with the strong football & sporting culture, the Portuguese guys show up fairly prominently in football. This is why you'll see clubs in Luxembourg named RM Hamm Benfica, Sporting SC Steinfort and ASL Porto. If your French club is in the north east near Luxembourg there, there is a chance of 'spill-over' of the Portuguese community and the owner and players looking to the football club for community. Thus, I would say it makes total sense for you to
  9. You could play the story that Nath O'Kav's father is FInnish, and that gives him the Finnish second nationality. This could tie in with a narrative around why Jimb O'Kav took a job in Finland, rather than Denmark or Sweden - in order to be closer to her partners roots.
  10. Interesting... I have had the first board takeover on FM21 which resulted in the new board submitting bids for players - and somehow I managed to cancel the bids for the two players which the new chairman made! One was a bid which I was able to choose Cancel Transfer on, while another was an end of contract bid which I was able to withdraw. It seemed like on FM20 and earlier it was never possible to cancel such bids after a new chairman takeover, which was frustrating on a youth only save.
