    getting a son in regen intake

    I can confirm that I got a son in 2025 (FM19) so there definitely isn't a 10 or 20 year limit. My first son in any FM and he was useless enough to be instantly released by me and never signed by another club. Retired 2026.
  2. I have a squad full of loan players, when I was a lower league team they would send them to me free (0 contribution as well as fee), and now I'm in the top flight it's usually 50% wages to pay. With the new "cannot be terminated" clause, it's just free cover and they players seem exempt from complaining as they're only on loan. Even dafter, the player and club are usually willing to extend the loan for the next season, even if they never played. It's basically an exploit how easy using loans is. I have found the point in the season to be critical in bringing them in, teams that refuse one month may be happy to send for free the next.
  3. Actually yes, I saw the option greyed out for the last few (in-game) weeks, and was surprised as there are lots of things I can ask for. No idea if it's a problem or intentional.
  4. I would expect someone to release a file that makes it playable on day one, it won't take long at all.
  5. Ironically, that's basically where VAR is right now. A bit of a fiasco/less good version than not having it at all, but the best way to improve it is to include it and make it better through experience.
  6. Can we get a search option in the editor for leagues with VAR? Would be good to turn them all off straight away!
  7. I read all the other new posts first and was underwhelmed/outright disappointed with them overall. Read this one and am actually excited by the potential. Obviously the proof will be in how well it is replicated in game, and especially if the AI uses the options realistically/can cope with user tactics, but this certainly looks a lot more like the sort of tactics module that has been called for some time.
  8. Is there any benefit in real life? I couldn't tell you a single youth competition winner ever.
  9. My cycle is to start a new FM with Bromley, and play until I have won everything/there is no challenge any more. This usually takes 15-20 seasons in game, and hundreds of hours of game time. Hopefully once it's happened, it's roughly the time for a new iteration of FM, if not then I tend to create a World Super League type file on my own (I usually get more out of creating the file than playing it though). The trouble for me is that I like the long-term development of a team from lower levels far more than the domination at the top, and that plays out the same way whether it is in a new country, newly promoted team to the bottom level or custom file. I really struggle to get into a new save other than my usual main one.
  10. Or, none of those things. In the scouting centre, not inbox, with no filters whatsoever, and either chief scout or manager setting responsibilities. And with the right package. At lower levels, scouts often return with 0 reports, even for the league the club is in. It's actually realistic given that most non-league teams don't have scouts, but it is stupid when they are such a major feature of FM.
  11. It seems to work better in the higher levels, but I had the same as you in non-league. In the Conference (so playable in vanilla not mods), 3 scouts set to scout the Conference found 0 players. In the league I was in, they only had to turn up to home games to find them!

    Anyone here not rotate their squad?

    I never rotate, as long as you have suitable back-ups rather than star players who should be playing somewhere, it is easy enough to handle occasional moans. The main problem is that it is just so easy for a human manager to keep everyone fit/injury free, you just don't need to rotate. In real life, it is essential - in FM it isn't.
  13. Sorry, I had already deleted mine and was trying to remember if it was folder or file called movies!
  14. Easy, go to the game files (Steam>steamapps>common>Football Manager 2018>data>game) and then delete the movies.fmf file.
  15. It is possible, I have done it. It took over 10 years though, as it probably should. If there is a bug in this thread, it's the young player getting there in two seasons. That one I would report.
