  1. Thankyou this is interesting info and I'll make sure this gets looked at.
  2. Niko Muir begins in the reserves but has started 16 games in the league for Hartlepool this season. See link described as "star striker"! https://www.sunderlandecho.com/sport/football/hartlepool-united/hartlepool-united-face-fight-to-keep-hold-of-star-striker-niko-muir-1-9321881
  3. Cameron King played 11 league games for King's Lynn Town in 2017-18, scoring 5 goals. He has a record for 18/19 at Lynn, which is wrong, but doesn't have a record for 17-18.
  4. We cannot accommodate joint managers in Football Manager so we've had to pick one of them to be the manager in the game. If you look at Johnson's history in the game you'll see he's been recorded as manager of Salford, Ramsbottom and now Chester. The Chester badge issue is more of a graphics issue which I'm sure is being dealt with.
  5. This is odd as he was at Kidderminster in the data I submitted. Can you grab the unique ID of the Sweeney at Bristol City, please.
  6. i know its beside the point but are you sure its accrington you are managing?
  7. Offer Open Trials One feature that I think would be a great addition for FM2008 would be the ability to advertise an open trial for your club. What this means is players who are free agents would approach you with a view to joining your club on trial, usually in the summer for pre seasobn training. It could be implemented in a similar way for advertising for staff. I know this system is used regularly in real life and would be particularly useful for lower division clubs where player turnover is high.
  8. Short Term Contracts I would like to see the return of the short term, weekly to week 'rolling' contracts that appeared in earlier versions of the series (Champ Man 2001-2002 for instance), and/or the ability to sign players on a non contract basis, with no compensation if you decide to release the player. This would be very helpful and very realistic when managing in the lower leagues, where most players are already registered on a non contract basis, and thus you can bring in and try out many players. It would be helpful as well as you could sign a player on an extended trial period as a non contract or a short term player. Look at Dean Gordon (Torquay), Danny Thomas (Hereford), Danny Cadamarteri (Leicester) and Danny Boshell (Grimsby) for examples of league clubs brining in non contract players.
