  1. Never really noticed it before but can anyone answer if the AI changes the facility levels of the teams over time? I'm a couple years into a save and noticed that a bunch of teams received a decrease by half a star to their training facilities. Almost always teams from weaker leagues. Does that have to do with the note you sometimes get that the facilities are not the standard anymore and these teams don't have the money to upgrade it? Is this normal that these facilities levels change over a save or a bug? Noticed a number of rich teams mostly from England received upgrades as well but more downgrades than upgrades from what I've seen.
  2. I started a save in Portugal with only the Portuguese leagues loaded,I loaded all players from Portugal for that game and the database large. It showed as 34,000 players and later as 35,000 players during the season in the add/remove leagues menu with a 4 star speed. Now, in a new season that player total suddenly jumped to 110k without changing anything. I added the top 5 divisions in Europe for the new season and the player count suddenly says 130k. I'm not really sure why or how. The game speed star is very shortly half a star and then jumps to 5 star which also doesn't make sense to me. The game speed seems to be fine but I'm just a bit confused right now.
  3. Take over OS Belenenses. Have to go a couple of times on holiday for 1 year until they are promoted to the new 4th tier in Portugal in 2021 and then kick out their current coach with the editor. You get 7/10 training and youth facilities and 1 million transfer budget in the 4th tier which is insane. I had the same issue as you but this solved it after also having some new kits for this club created and it's a very fun save. Try to dismantle Belenenses SAD first, then Benfica, Sporting and Porto and do damage in Europe. I can only recommend this.
  4. Don't think it's too easy for the average FM player not playing in the Prem where you can buy your way to glory through TV revenue or using knaps tactics. If they make it hard enough for those types of FM junkies to fail, 90% of the players would rage quit.
  5. He is definitely a long term project but Albert Braut Tjaland can develop into a really, really good player. Can be had for 300-400k from Molde.
  6. How much did you get him for? Randers wanted 3 million in my save in Denmark. I'm poor so I cannot afford it lol.
  7. Interesting. I created a similar 4231 just with inverted wingers. Seems to work really well. I'll give this a try.
  8. I have tested it and can't say it's true. The only thing that really had to be fixed is players running to the goalkeeper from the sideline and shooting from impossible angles. Haven't played enough games to answer that yet.
  9. that's what I have done. But honestly even if you only raid the best U18 talents from every club in the Netherlands every year, you will build a really, really good team. Add Belgium on top of that, and you can win the UCL potentially.
  10. He develops into a world class CB. Had him on my Ajax save 6 years in and he was as good as van Dijk.
  11. Thinking about starting with Sporting Portugal. Had a nice save going in Norway but a new owner fired me after a takeover so thinking about Sporting and focusing on youth and Africa and SA imports
  12. After a successful preseason and transfer window, the media and the fans had high hopes for Lyn as Agnar entered his 2nd season at the club. The club was hoping to aim for back to back promotions. However after just a few games played and an expected cup loss, it became clear very quickly that this league was very different. Now, to be fair Haugesund was a relegated Eliteserien club, Fredrikstad and Valerenga are the 2 best teams in the division and we led Vidar until we received a red card. So we kept going and the results improved. We improved to 3rd place however this didn't last long and we entered another rough stretch. We felt like we were too leaky and clearly conceded tons of goals. We have changed our mentality to cautious right now and quickly won our last 2 games against Fredrikstad and Honefuss. Which puts us very comfortable ahead of the relegation zone but also not much hope of getting promoted. The main issue we have and are still coming across is that we promised too many players playing time and our dynamics are average at best. We will have to sort this one out, especially for next season.
  13. He hasn't. I tried to play him but him not being able to move and my new system being focused on athletic ability was his downfall most likely and he should retire.
  14. Lyn TF 2022 season preview: After a very succcessful first season in charge of Lyn, Agnar has his eyes on establishing the team in the PostNord - ligaen. There will be hurdles as he will have to battle the likes of Valerenga II and Fredrikstad but Agnar feels confident in his vision and believes he has strengthened the team enough to compete at the top of the division. Due to the lack of scouts, scouting network and scouting budget it wasn't easy to identify the right targets but I think we made some improvements. The bulk of my top signings comes from loans. I wasn't able to bring the top loanees from the Eliteserien but some exciting prospects where this guy stands out. Unfortunately only on loan but for 17 years old he is pretty, pretty good and should help us lot. The board expectations are very reasonable and I would be disappointed if we only reach that. That being said, we drew a relegated Eliteserien team in the first round of the cup so we will have a really difficult time reaching the 3rd round in that one. The odds favor us much more and although I'm not sure if we are that good, it certainly would be a pleasant surprise. Dream is to reach the playoff which is the 2nd place against the 2nd place of the other league group but that is far away. We are going to start the season against Haugesund and Fredrikstad, absolutely brutal. But we will quickly know if we are overhyped or not.
  15. No idea. He also can't run anymore at all. But his mentals are really good.
  16. As we move towards our 2nd season, financially not much has improved and thus the board thinks it would not be wise to turn into a professional club yet. We aren't getting any facility or youth recruitment upgrades either. That being said, we got our first youth intake in February 2022. Decent enough.
  17. seasons review: Sharma and Singh were absolutely huge for me and formed a great partnership from game 1. I'm interested to see how good Sharma is going to be next season but I guess he is going to be just fine. Looks like he was an absolute steal of a signing. Financially we are hurting and were the only team without sponsorship money and we didn't any new sponsors either. Yuck.
