  1. Interesting that the OP was writen in 2018 and it is as relevant today, 3-4 versions later as the it was the day it was posted.
  2. In 25+ seasons in FM2020 and 2021, I've never seen a goalkeeper injured or sent off. I never have one on the bench as there is simply no need.
  3. We all know how Frank Lampard's career as Chelsea manager went. Started off well meaning, and lasted just over a year until it became clear that he wasn't going to bring immediate success demanded by the club. His stats as Chelsea manager are summarised in the spoiler below. Basically he lasted 84 matches in total. Chelsea are also famous for chopping and changing their manager frequently in the Ambramovich era, and even proven top level pedgree managers with Champions League wins in their record get fired within 12 months if they don't bring immediate success. In every game of FM2020
  4. For anyone interested in the future, I fixed it. I had to use tab to seperate the values, and the quotation marks were somehow in the wrong font. Once I changed the quotes from “ to " it worked. I think because it is an lnc file, not plain text, it lets your store italic fonts.
  5. I have found the correct folder for editing things, apparently it has to be the save that the game was started in, not the current version, however the string “STADIUM_NAME_CHANGE” 2000066574 “New maidstone stadium name” “english” just will not take :-(
  6. After getting Maidstone promoted to the Premier League, the club decided to build a new stadium. I was very excited, until I found out it would be called the 'Bill Williams Stadium'. I have no idea who Bill Williams is, and would like to name the stadium more befittting of the manager that has taken the club from the Vanarama South to the Premier League. Our first season in the new stadium will feature Champions League football! I have followed the various instructions online but I can't seem to get the stadium name to change. Can anyone direct me to which folder I should put the .lnc fil
  7. Just played the first match of the Papa John's Trophy group round. At the end of the match, the commentary said 'Maidstone are through to the next round' which is incorrect as it is a group match. I don't know if the commentary is captured in the .PKM file but I have uploaded it here.
  8. Posted the following in the general feedback channel: --------------------- Why can you not dispute with a player when they say that you haven't fulfilled your promise when you have? Key examples being: You promised my match time wouldn't change when I returned from injury You promised me more match time. You play these players in pretty much every match, and when they come complaining that you have broken your promise your options are Sorry pal, I promise I'll play you more Tough luck, do you want to leave I'm the manage

You play these players in pretty much every match, and when they come complaining that you have broken your promise your options are Sorry pal, I promise I'll play you more Tough luck, do you want to leave I'm the manager, suck it up Why is there no option that says 'I have played you in 90% of matches that you have been ava
  10. Three seasons into FM2021, and I've noticed that the opposition have never, on any occasion, made a half time subsitution. The AI managers never make any changes until at least 75 minutes into the match.
  11. This is a bug that has carried over from FM2020, but goalkeepers never, ever, get injured during matches, or sent off. I played 20 seasons in FM2020, and 3 seasons into FM2021 and I have never seen a goalkeeper, either my own or the opposition, get a yellow card, red card, or injured during a match.
  12. As per the thread title, another UI bug. When you have a player suspended or injured. If you replace that player in the tactics screen with a non-injured or non-suspended player the screen shows the replacement as injured or suspended until you exit the screen and re-enter it. See video of this in action - Steam Version 21.2 https://streamable.com/iys2gh
  13. Three times in the last couple of days, I've been watching a match and thinking 'this is going on a bit longer than usual' and noticing no breaks in play while the match advances to the next highlight. On each occasion, after 5mins or so, i've clicked the match settings button and found that the highlights mode have for some reason changed from 'Extended highlights' to 'Full match', without me changing it. I never change this setting manually. It caused a real problem the first time it happened as it was 3am, I needed to go to bed, I needed to goto the loo, there was 80mins on the clock a
  14. @Francis Mooney If it is any help for testing, the double\repeated fixtures in the UI seen to happen on dates scheduled for cup competions that the club is still in.
  15. Through the little smilies at on the bench? I thought this might be the case, but seeing a player going from :-\ to :-| or :-| to :-) doesn't seem to have the same impact as seeing 'player is fired up' or 'player is overwhelmed'. It just seems another way where the visual impact of management decision is made more difficult to mentally process. I would love it if in the next patch, SI introduces the ability to view team meetings and feedback in the original list format rather than the 'in the room' or 'on the bench' format. There's a reason why lists have persisted in software for pres
  16. It was like this in FM2020, every VAR check for a foul was given, and every VAR check for offside was given as offside. In 21 seasons I didn't have a single VAR check that didn't fall this way. Sometimes the ref would run along to the monitor in the middle of the pitch, just to prolong the tension, but VAR always resulted in the same decision - VAR is it a penalty? - it's a penalty VAR is it offside? - it's offside VAR is it inside or outside the box? - It's outside The VAR is a token gesture to VAR, it's not realistic. As soon as you see VAR called you know what the result
  17. Has anyone yet worked out how to see how your team have responded to touchline shouts? In FM2020 it was obvious, there match panel display clearly showed the player reaction to the shouts (fired up, overwhelmed etc.), however in FM2021 there appears to be no obvious way to see how your players have responded to your shouts?
  18. I had planned a subsitution in a match, just before the opponent scored. What then happened was the substitution was cancelled, but the player stayed on the pitch and was marked as Substituted and I could not take him off, even though he was still on the pitch. Player in question is Akanbi, you can clearly see he is still on the pitch, despite being marked as substituted. When I select to substitute him, I get a message that max subs are already played........ Whenever I hover over the Akanbi's 'sub icon' it just says he was substituted off on whatever the current minute of the match was,
  19. I had this happen with my preseason friendlies, but didn't pay much attention. But now I have the same match showing twice in my schedule for 28th November. Not using any addons on skins. Steam version of the game.
  20. I've played Football Manager since the 90s, when it was called Championship Manager. I took 9 years off when they switched to the 3d match engine (my steam catalogue shows I last purchased FM2011 but barely played it). In March I got a new PC with the XBOX game pass, which lead me to try FM2020 again, and it sucked me right back in. The UI was excellent, the fact you could assign away boring tasks like training to assistant managers was great, and you could just focus on the core gameplay of the earlier editions - transfers, tactics, and matches, and the game engine and 3d match engine we
