  1. I did uncover an issue last night playing my Birmingham City save. In my 2nd season and trying to offload Fran Villalba (who was on loan in Spain first season). I accepted an offer from WBA, he agreed terms but then failed the WP so the transfer got cancelled by WBA. I then offered him out to clubs and WBA put an offer in again despite the fact that he had just failed to get a WP for them and they cancelled the deal. I thought they might sign him and loan him out to try and get the necessary WP points. When the contract was accepted the same thing happened with the WP and they cancelled t
  2. This is exactly how I am finding my save with Birmingham City. I never smash anybody, I just constantly grind out results. I went through a bad spell in my first season around Christmas losing several games and drawing against teams in the bottom 3, but then come the new year I was on fire until the end of the season and got promoted with nearly 100 points. 2 games into the new season I have won both games at home to Everton and away at Palace.
  3. 442 with Birmingham City both strikers got 20+ in all competitions.
  4. If this is the patch from the other day with the Brexit rule changes then no, I have had the issue since that patch.
  5. Oh damn! I haven't been on there today but this isn't looking good!
  6. Hmmm very strange! My first season was fine but been hit with it 2nd season. Hope they can fix this asap
  7. Maybe the changes to the Brexit rules has thrown something out. I am going to have to stop playing this save until a fix is implemented as I can't wait until January to register my new signings.
  8. No, for example I am currently looking at Jack O'Connell of Sheff Utd. He hasn't played for any other team since 2015/16 but it still comes up with the same message. It is almost like it thinks the transfer window has closed but it has only just opened.
  9. So as the title suggests, am I being stupid or is this a bug..... I am in pre season of season two on my Birmingham City save (to be precise it is 25th June 2021). I got promoted and I have already signed a couple of players, but all of a sudden if I go to bid for ANY player in the world it comes up with a warning on the transfer bid screen to state "player X cannot be registered for the English Premier Division until 1/1/2022". Is this right? As a newly promoted team I have to wait until January to register anyone I sign from now on in? This seems like a bug to me but just wanted to
  10. I am delighted this has been updated, great work SI. Just in time for my promotion signings with Birmingham City.
  11. If they don't it would be a real help if this could be implemented.
  12. Can I just ask again, do youth international caps count in game? I'm sure I read somewhere they don't.
  13. I agree, neither the article, or FM21 explain HOW the points system works and the weightings, so really we are still in the dark about it all. All I care for is an explanatipn of how the points are distributed in the game, and how close/far away a player is from obtaining a WP.
  14. FM doesn't consider any other international caps than senior team though, no?
  15. I disagree. I never buy young players from South America to "exploit" the game as I don't have time to play more than 3 or 4 seasons usually. I am a Birmingham City fan and managing them on FM. We have signed a lot of players from Spain in the last 2 seasons, none of which I imagine would get a WP on FM21. I agree with your post about league 1 and 2 teams signing foreign players as that is a rarity. Like I have said many times in this thread, personally I am enjoying the chsllenge but would like more transparency with who can and cant get a WP and why/how far off they are.
  16. I agree that you shouldn't be able to pluck kids from Brazil and expect them to get a WP, but I think a lot of people's gripes are the fact that in this current edition with Brexit the way it is, you probably wouldn't be able to get Firmino even after his 140 appearances in Germany (and get no detailed explanation as to why). I don't think it is a major issue if you are a top premier league team as you will be looking for mainly high calibre players, however in my Birmingham City save I haven't found a single suitable target from abroad yet that can get a WP. I don't mind as I like the challen
  17. This is my concern and I have had a few instances like this! The specifics of the WP aren't explained in enough detail which leads to cases like this where I feel someone is nailed on for a WP and they don't get one, but then someone who I think doesn't stand a chance does get one.
  18. I think you could be very right with that prediction actually, great shout!
  19. Whilst I am enjoying the challenge of Brexit in my save I agree with your part about the FM21 implementation being the harshest possible scenario. I would be absolutely astounded if the rules in real life were anywhere near as strict as they are in FM.
  20. Both Donnaruma and Depay are freebies on mine as well. Shame I am managing Birmingham City so I can't snap them up
  21. Is it bug worthy or is there a way to filter out scouts reporting back on players that wont get a work permit? Literally all the players the scouts report on in the scouting meeting wont get a work permit so they are pretty much a waste of time.
