  1. I've had this a few times over the years. Best was a goal in 15 seconds! But yes two goals in under two minutes happens, though rarely
  2. It can also depend a lot on the player and clubs situation - if he plays in a position which is top heavy and they need him to go elsewhere to get the game time he needs, they might be more likely to let him go free but this is probably more relevant for higher end players loaned to higher end clubs. In your case, higher reputation clubs are going to be more likely to loan out their youngsters who are good enough for first team experience in order to develop outside of the reserves, but unlikely to accept offers for players who are already established although they may be listed for loan. It is all case by case and situational.
  3. Defending set pieces is, in my opinion, certainly not an issue (unless you watch key highlights only ,which is an obvious). Everything Overmars said rings true. So I guess what IS key is to not go in thinking it is like 19 haha
  4. I'd suggest putting this (with screenshot) into tho bugs forum. Also just a way of handling it in the meantime... Send all your players on holiday manually to avoid them training
  5. You're discussing two different types of unhappiness here. You've got unhappy about not having their game time fulfilled, which will happen regardless of results. And you've got unhappy with situation at club. The latter is a problem I have brought up countless times with SI because when I click on this apparent unhappiness, it shows me their dynamic screen and there is no negatives. I can never get to the bottom of it (neither can SI apparently ,and so it gets ignored).
  6. Unfortunately the only thing you can get to significantly boost the performance is a laptop that performs better. You can of course buy more RAM , that will increase performance. I'd say at least 8gb, 12 is better and more is overkill IMO for FM. Don't expect miracles though, it would (anecdotally) probably get you 2 stars I reckon. Maybe not even that. You could buy a solid state drive, but unless you have an extra slot for a HDD this may not be possible. And a new graphics card. This is all if you're slightly tech savvy. I'd suggest putting windows on your SSD and keep the SSD for windows programs only, and everything else on your second HDD . If you have one. Limit background programs running, isolate everything you don't need on . Sound easier to just buy a new laptop??
  7. You feel sorry... For finishing first in a title race between the top two clubs in Italy? And disappointed that you had an exciting title challenge rather than run away with it?
  8. I didn't know you could be forced to retire? Screenshot?
  9. Fellas. Listen. FM gives London a better attraction rating than Manchester or Liverpool or Newcastle. So, you may think you like these other cities better... But you don't 😂😂
  10. 1. 2. Yes 3. Yes, regens can however 4. Download Steam, buy online. Shops are shut 😂
  11. What I am saying is, it cannot. In my opinion. London does have more of an attraction to a lot of people. Newcastle offers it's own kind of attraction. Some people would prefer to be in a city like that or Liverpool rather than London. You cannot tell me, for example, that I would prefer London just because that's what the majority of people prefer. Throw this one in there - a player described as loyal and came through Newcastle ranks would probably prefer to stay there at his city. But what you're saying is that "he doesn't ,because London has a higher attraction rating".
  12. I am not sure how this could be implemented? Surely every player is different - in RL some players would prefer to be at a city like Manchester or Newcastle as opposed to London. So there couldn't possibly be a blanket rating?
  13. It would seem you've answered your own question I'm guessing
  14. Agreed. The because sophisticated AI doesn't exist, the advice and decisions etc come off the back of stats and behind the scenes stats. For example when my team are instructed to play a short passing game and retain 60 percent possession, the advice I get is that we should now play direct and I guess that is the AI thinking I am doing well in possession so they'll advise that. I'm doing well keeping possession because I am playing short haha
  15. I've had all of my players of ten years have testimonials? All three of them haha but still. Who knows, maybe random
  16. It doesn't. Not until it pops up the day before in your newsfeed saying such and such's testimonial tomorrow. It does however show up in your friendly fixtures some time prior if you keep checking there
  17. Think the club arrange it automatically mate at the start of pre season
  18. My understanding, though anecdotal, is if you buy a player at age 18, regardless of months and days, he will gain home grown status. I say anecdotal, but it certainly works for me as I have many foreigners in my Newcastle squad now all home grown as well as dozens more. Just realised, the above quote confirms what I thought with the last bullet point :-)
  19. You've effectively just answered your own post pal. Have a gold star ⭐ . In future perhaps try withdrawing them from squads or signing none international players.
  20. You were favoured. Now you're not. Be different if you were a club legend. You were just at the top end of "a good player/manager".
  21. Always learning, cheers! I do not, as they're often youngsters earmarked for the future. Plus...I'd just ignore it if it did upset them. I know best :P not the fans
  22. Strange, I see no option of this anywhere. I got asked in my first season 12 years ago which package I want and I have never been asked since. Even in scouting page I see no option other than to adjust the amount of funds I wish to give to it
  23. I think you or I are confused in this case. Etebaer stated, or as I understood it, that disabling the scouting ''software thing'' was the ''attribute masking'' which can be disabled at the game startup. I am unaware that you can stop/start/stop/start the scouting packages within the game. You choose a package...then you have it for the season. So it makes no sense to me that he was talking about disabling this. And to be able to ''use it for one month when the transfer window starts''....what? ! So you can stop start? This is all becoming complicated haha.
  24. I tend to treat FM as a football simulator (because it is) and in RL players need to be watched and scouted in order to have their physical (and mental and technical) attributes assessed. So, in essence, to have their attributes available for you to see from every club in the entire world without ever having scouted them would be, well, unrealistic. Because you simply haven't got the capability to do that. Ergo, disabling the scouting ''thingy'' is, in my opinion, a deviation from the RL feel the game is trying to create and I'd consider it a cheat. I understand why you do it though, believe me I would love to have everyone's attributes available to me. I just can't bring myself to do it. For the record I didn't mean to come across like a snotty A-hole haha
