I'm playing with St.Pauli and after a season or two at the club, time for elections for chairman came. The incumbent chairman lost and a new one was announced. ever since that moment the chairman and the board have gone missing.
I've kept playing I few months in-game, waiting in case they needed some adaptation time, but the chairman is not listed under staff as usual, I can't make a request to the board (either from the finances or the club vision tab, they're disabled), and when I go to staff responsabilities for the board, it seems I, the manager, am in charge of hiring and firing myself, build the club's vision and provide financial resources.
Weird thing is, in the meantime, I was offered a new contract, and was able to accept it and negotitate with board for it. But I can't make any request or communicate with them at all.
