  1. I thought he was referrng to youth players signed during the draft of a new club?
  2. I have a queston about loan players in create a team. I tried to set a Leeds variant, and after having spent, literally hours honing a killer squad, I load it only to find that I had 5/6 loans that cannot be terminated, totalling 21% of my entire wage budget!! So I couldn't sign any staff (I had 'helpfully' unticked the 'retain staff' option, as I always end up sacking them all anyway) and was completely buggered! I had to just bin it! How do you stop this? Or is it a terminal bug? Surely if I'm picking my squad there should be no other deals going on. It's a new team after all, even though it was layered on top of a real club! Also, related to this. Can I add players that have already agreed to join another team? Does the game override this? There is a box to tick that says 'Exclude future transfers out', but I don't know what that means, it's a bit ambiguous! Cheers, Jezz
  3. I have recently created a couple of clubs with the latest update, and the ability/potential ratings are nonsense. They always show ab and pot as the same. The AB s often Simla but the actual potential higher. (Of course it depends on your Ass Man scouting abilities, but Ive alreaady learnt not to take much notice of the star rating while adding players for my team.
  4. Did you use the drop down menu to select which competition each kit should be used? If not I suspect it will just default to the main kit everytime.
  5. I'm about to ceate a team, should i avoid sghing any youngsters on youth contracts?
  6. Hi, I've tried to set up a couple of teams in the 'create a team' feature, in one of these, a Leeds variant, and after having spent, literally hours honing a killer squad for the 190m available, I load it only to find that I have 6 loans that cannot be terminated, totalling 21% of my entire wage budget!! So now I can't sign any staff and i'm completely buggered! I had to just bin it! But how do you stop this? Or is it a terminal bug? Surely if I'm picking my squad there should be no other deals going on. It's a new team after all, even though it is layered on top of a real club! Also, related to this. Can I add players that have already agreed to join another team? Does the game override this?

  7. I've tried to set up up a couple of team in the 'create a team' feature, on one of these times, a Leeds variant, after I had spent, literally hours honing a killer squad for the 190m available, it loads only to find that i have 6 loans that cannot be terminated, totally 21% of my entire wage budget!! So now I can't sign any staff and i'm completely buggered! I had to just bin it! But how do you stop ths? Or is it a terminal bug?

  8. I have Played several incarnations of FM up to 14, where I stopped for 3 or 4 reasons. Although I loved the game it drove me nuts! My main bugbears where 1/ It was almost impossible to offload players! I wasted so much time offering and re-offering players to clubs for less and less money, even for nothing! Not a bite from the entire world of football! Sorry but that is just stupid! There are plenty of clubs with the financial clout to pay any of the wages my players were on! (Arsenal/Brighton/Leeds) And then someone would make an off and my player would reject the contract!! 2/ Injuries!! So many injuries!! So you buy more squad players to cover and guess what!? They get injured even before they arrive at the club! Then the game loves to Injure all the players in the same position. 3/ Impossible to win games: Not the ones vs top clubs, as you might expect! Barca? No problem! Liverpool? 4-0 take that you reds. Bottom side in the division? Absolutely no chance! League One side in the cup? Guaranteed 0-1. Win to take you top of the league? Forget it! You can save and replay 20 times if you like you’re not having it mate! 4/ Loaned players get no game time, despite the promise to be a first team regular! Players that got 30+ games at an average of 7.5 lol. So many of my promising youngsters flatlined while out on loan. Their 4 or 4.5 star potential shrivelling on a cold foreign bench 2.5 or 3. Wtf is that all about!??? So my question is: Are these still an issue in FM20? If so I think I will skip!! [I did treat myself to FM20m, which I am quite enjoying. It’s a bit limited (as you might expect, but I like it that good players getting game time progress very quickly, and also players can be trained to play new positions much more quickly than I remember in FM14. I don’t like the scouting though, no way to filter results or send your scout out to look for specific positions. Just youth or not. Also, you send them to a specific region but all but the odd one here and there are exactly the same and from European top clubs. Also £8 for a sugar daddy!?? Are you having a laugh??? Is anyone stupid enough to pay for that!???]
  9. So, what you are saying, is you are not playing a football sim you are battling against the idiosyncracies of the programming, and more specfically it's flaws? So, t's not about having good tactics, it's about knowng how the game s programmed? Not exactly what I bought the game for!???
  10. I simply do not believe this! I have played so many saves of this game. Replayed games 20, 30, 40 or more times on occasion. Changing the team, the tactics, the team talk etc. Sometimes it is smply impossible to wn a game. Players can have good moral respond well to the team talk, and sever liking what the manager said in the press conference. Coming up against the bottom team I regularly lose despite good form etc. It's nonsense. It is absolutely programmed in, in some way that makes playing bottom sides almost impossible to wn. It makes you feel lke you are kid with a plastic steering wheel. It might feel like a car but you have no control over the result whatsoever. It got so annoying. I started using games vs the bottom three and cup games verses lower division teams for my youth, as it didn't seem to make any difference what team I put out. You can deny it all you like. The overwhelming experience is these games are totally fixed. It makes you wonder how and why, and if other games are also fixed!? Maybe they all ae, and not a lot you do makes any difference at all!
