  1. This isn't a bug in strictest sense of the word, but it's something ridiculous that probably needs to be addressed. Summary: My star player wants to leave for a smaller club solely because he's their 'main transfer target' Description of issue: I'm in 2030 and managing Cambridge, and I've taken them pretty far. I've finished second, third and second in the Premier League in the last three seasons, and last season I won the FA Cup and reached the Champions League semis. Chelsea, meanwhile, have nosedived and their last five league finishes have been 11th, 8th, 13th, 11th and 5th and they haven't won anything. Cambridge's reputation is worldwide compared to Chelsea's continental, and there's no doubt I'm a better and more successful club right now. Chelsea, however, have made my star player their main transfer target. At first I laughed it off as there's no way my player would/should be interested, and at first he wasn't, but all of a sudden Chelsea made a bid of £96m and he demanded a move. In the player chat, he said it was because Chelsea wanted to make him their 'main man'. The common sense response would be 'bloody hell mate, you're already our main man and we're blatantly a better side than they are', but such an option wasn't possible. He now has a slight concern and wants to leave because 'Chelsea have made him their main transfer target'. Isn't this a bit unrealistic? It's like in real life Wolves making Kevin De Bruyne their top target and him kicking up a stink and wanting to go just because 'well, they really want me'.
  2. I've noticed that if you add a clause that can be activated over the season, it comes out of your budget. Hypothetical situation, for a Premier League club: -Offer £10m plus £5m after 30 games = £15m out of your budget. -Offer £10m plus £5m after 40 games = £10m out of your budget.
  3. This message appeared on owncloud after the file upload was complete. I'm guessing it means the file didn't upload and it's an error message?
  4. I've also noticed that my youth intakes have been a bit poor, but I had put it down to bad luck. For the last four or five seasons my junior coaching, youth recruitment and youth facilities have been maxed out with a top HOYD, but I haven't produced a newgen with Premier League quality yet. I miss FM10, when you were guaranteed a world class newgen in the first intake every time!
  5. I see your point, but it's normal in real life that players with expiring contracts keep their options open. Maybe SI could make a cosmetic tweak here, and change the 'extremely interested' for players with expiring contracts to something along the lines of 'interested but waiting'. As for players wanting to sign for Bari, I suppose that the player could choose to live in Lecce and then commute.
  6. I've had this before- players who would normally sign for a club without any problems decide to 'keep their options open' when their contract is expiring, and you can only offer them a contract nearer the expiration date, unless you're a really big club. I always assumed it's totally normal and realistic. Or maybe, just maybe, it could be a case of who the bloody hell wants to live in Bari?
  7. I think this is normal and it happens in real life. Players get little muscle strains here and there, but usually on FM they can play through them with no problem.
  8. "Pre-Release Beta and Retail Uploads/Earlier Smart People.fm" is locked. What does that mean?
  9. I've advanced the game now so only have the file from 9/3/29, called 'Earlier Smart People.fm'. I'm uploading it again, but it takes a while.
  10. Well he's left you with some decent players anyway. I'm in 2029 in my game and Costa and Wague are both world class players.
  11. Maybe that's why you got the job- the last manager didn't stick to the vision and signed crap players.
  12. But he's in his own half, isn't he? This one looks fine to me.
  13. Update: He demanded a transfer after the final game of the season due to my 'broken promise' of not letting him take free kicks, despite the fact he took all free kicks in attacking areas and even chipped in with a few assists from them. I saved the game before talking to him as I wanted to try every available option to appease him- obviously in normal circumstances this is cheating but in order to get round a bug it's perfectly justified. First time I told him to just 'get on with it' and he didn't back down. Second time, I asked him why he'd leave such a great dressing room and, for the first time ever in FM I think, he backed down! So I managed to resolve the situation in the end, but it's still a bug that needs to be fixed.
  14. No, I've never seen the option either on any FM version, but it isn't actually needed if you add the squad that the player plays for onto the main squad page.
  15. But there is the option to select them for the first team without moving them, isn't there? When you're on the 'squad' page, select filter in the top right corner, select 'U23 squad', 'Reserves' or whatever, and the players from that squad will all appear on your squad page without them actually having been moved.
  16. I have an identical issue. I've taken Cambridge into the Premier League with maxed out training, youth facilities etc. but my U23 team has never been invited to join a league and has only ever played friendlies. My file is called 'Smart People'.
  17. Now that I've had a bit more time on my hands, I've just updated the post with all the relevant information.
  18. Summary: A player signed a contract with the promise of 'will assign player as free kick taker' and despite being number one choice for all free kicks, he doesn't feel that the promise is being fulfilled. Description: I've given my star player a new contract with the promise that he takes free kicks and penalties. I gave him those two promises when he signed and there were no issues as he has always taken all free kicks and penalties, but now two-and-a-half years later after renewing his contract with the same promises, he feels time is running out to assign him as free kick taker. My initial theory was that because he was already free kick taker, he hasn't been 'assigned', so I've just tried removing him, forwarding the game, and then re-adding him, which hasn't worked yet but might work after a few more matches. But that doesn't explain why he's happy that the penalty promise is being fulfilled and the free kick one isn't. Are there any solutions to this bug? It's my tenth season and I'm loving this save having taken Cambridge from League Two into the Champions League, but this has the potential to be a real game-breaker if my star player hands in a transfer request because of a bug. I'm running out of time too because there are less than three weeks until the promise ends and he throws his toys out of the pram. Steps to reproduce: Give Antonio Zilic a new contract (I think he's unhappy when the earlier file starts on 9/3/29, but he got over his unhappiness in mid-March and then I immediately offered a new contract) with the promises of assigning him penalty and free kick taker. Files uploaded: I've uploaded the current file at 25/4/29 called 'Smart People', and I've just managed to get an old copy from 9/3/29 that was on the cloud, which is called 'Earlier Smart People' and is now slowly uploading. The player in question, Antonio Zilic, signed a new contract on 25/3/29. The version is 20.4.1-1363262, but the game was created on 1343694.
