  1. You create or download a custom database, its a computer file. you copy or drag and drop it inside the correct folder and then select that database when you create a new career ingame. Read the "Readme.txt" file that comes with the DB.
  2. My guess is that you need a dedicated graphics card to run fm21. Both steam store page and google says a 13 year old laptop with a GeForce 9600M GT can run FM21 fine. (That gpu was released in 2008). Id suggest buy a $50 laptop from 2008 with this graphics card and use it to play Football manager only perhaps?
  3. Messi retired in 2023 after winning the league. His first and only job is U19 assistant manager for Barcelona starting in 2026.
  4. But they pay income tax to the nation they are working, not their home country? England has 45% and France 43%. Spain has a rate of 26% of any income past 200k.. I would say Eduardo Camavinga playing for Real Madrid is the one who gets the most money after income tax. Ill ask a question (mentioned in OP): When did Messi Retire in my current FM21 save, who did he play for and what Staff role does he currently have and where? Its year 2034 and he is 47 years old.
  5. When I manage that low, I try and have as few staff members as possible, only one chief scout and no data analyst even. I ask DoF (effectivly ask Chairman, no DoF at club) for recomendation in the scouting page. Then I give them a trial or just a loan if they don't want a trial. I dont scout players manually,
  6. Hi, Is it smart to use "Percentage of next sale" and an agreed "Buy back price" together when selling a player? Or do you perhaps get a better deal without the Percentage back later? And do you even get the 40% back when you buy the player in the future or is it just if someone else buys him?
  7. Dont stay in portugal. Many leagues have fun/challanging rules about selection and players. (Poland is very interesting). Start in Bluefin Sport Championship as a sunday league manager. add N.Ireland, Wales, Scotland, Poland, Russia, Sweeden and Portugal. Try and win every top division loaded with a single manager. Get a new job in the "next" nation once you have won. I think its fun. You can choose a different set of Nations if you want.
  8. I like to play in Danske Bank Premiership because you can also compete in 6 different cups every season (including Euro cup). Id say any nation where you can join play in the Tunnock's Caramel Wafer Challenge Cup is worth a try. (need to have Scotland loaded since they arrange the cup i think).
  9. Id make a few long term goals, and a few short term goals. And try a new team. You said you always play in Portugal; I suggest that you start lower down and win the league in 3-4 smaller nations before joining a team in Portugal 15-20 years into the future(with the same manager) at the "end of the save" instead. You could start in Wales or Ireland, win in Poland and Slovakia and perhaps win the Sweedish or Russian league too before you take on Portugal and win Champions league.. Expect to have bad seasons. And Id also avoid managing the top/best teams because its a bit boring when there is no challenge.
  10. I thought the player had to be past 30 years old in addition to be at the club for 10+ years. so if he is only 26 years, you need to wait 4 years.
  11. While managing Caerau Ely, my striker got a long term injury. I asked the DoF for a replacement and signed him without a trial or scout. He played his first competitive match for us at the agr of ~23. And scored 5 goals in a single league match once. He ended up Getting a PAIR of Golden boots in a single season. I like to focus on achivements/performance instead of attributtes or CA.
  12. I assume "building a squad" means buying/loaning new players to the club. I mostly look at History -> Career Stats. If he has played most of the matches last season, I then look at where his team finished and if they did better than me I will most likely sign that player. I use the stars too, but I don't sign a 5 star player who is 23 years old and has never played any competitive matches.
  13. Yes I agree that if you say "He has a higher pace" you mean that someone is running faster. But the number value in minutes would still be a lower value. And the game uses numbers to tell us about a players pace. Pace has many meanings depending on what you are talking about. Its not simple. I am talking about "Running Pace", in the context of a person running. And the players do run in football manager. Take a look at this page: https://calcrun.net/pace-time/#pace_time What is running pace Running pace is the amount of time in which you run 1 mi or km. Pace indicates how much time the runner spends covering the distance. Knowing your average pace, you can understand how long it will take to cover the distance. Running pace is measured in minutes-seconds per mile or minutes-seconds per kilometer, depending on the units used. For example, a pace of 6:40 min / mile means that one mile was covered in 6 minutes 40 seconds.
  14. Ok I see. I was talking about real-life not in-game. This game has many concepts and rules from real life inside it. I guess Pace is not one of them.
  15. Pace = defined as the number of minutes it takes to cover a mile or kilometer. - Lower is better Pace is NOT mesured in KM/H or MPH like cars where higher is better.
  16. There are attributes where its better to have a 1 and bad to have a 20 ingame already. It would not be that much coding to reverse the Pace stat so that 1 is best and 20 is worst.
  17. I think its odd that a guy with 18 Pace runs faster than one with 5 in Pace. It should be the other way around! Someone who runs a kilometer in 18 minutes would be slower than a guy who runs a kilometer in 5 minutes. "In running, pace [4] is usually defined as the number of minutes it takes to cover a mile or kilometer. Pacing is often a critical aspect of endurance events. Some coaches advocate training at a combination of specific paces related to one's fitness in order to stimulate various physiological improvements.[5]"
  18. Check this webpage: https://www.ethicalfa.org/top-flight-clubs And perhaps this: https://www.dw.com/en/welcome-to-the-worlds-greenest-soccer-club/a-46694185
  19. I think its for teams outside of Europe mostly. Perhaps the badge pack you are using does not contain all National badges. Mine only had european teams afaik. Try using a different badge pack. Or perhaps you need a French badge collection pack thing?
  20. You could start in a league with a very long first transfer window. some places it lasts all the way until march the next year. This way you would get to disable transfers for almost a entire season!
  21. The only thing I can think of is by using screen shots. But If you have 2 monitors its pretty fast to look at the game and write the data directly without moving your eyes back and fourth.
  22. The "locking in" of playing time does only apply if you are delegating loan transfer to staff. They will automatically accept any loan offer that meets the "requirements" that you set, and refuse any below. It does not affect what type of loan offers you receive.
  23. I had my backup keeper play as a winger in a cup match to rest a player. He got 2 yellow cards and got sent off in the second half. I think it was his 3rd match that season. He did a decent job as a winger all things considered.
  24. well related question: Do the team talks you choose affect the players view on the match? or does it only affect their morale?. I understand all green response helps morale. lets say in a teoretical situation: Both options "I have faiith in you" and "I excpect a win tonight" gives a green response, does it matter witch one you choose? (its only teoretical since you cannot know the effect in advance)
  25. Goal Keeper passes the ball to the striker who only has one touch on the ball and sends it into the net.. lucky!!!
