  1. Year. Sometimes I promise them that we're going to win the Champions League, and even if we fail they feel we did great reaching QF or SF.
  2. That's why the first thing that I do when I create the game is try to rise the release clause. The image is from my squad at 2021.
  3. 2nd Season and going up to the Premier! Awesome job using the 19.2.2 and 19.2.3 4231 BEOWULF versions.
  4. Finished 1st season with Sunderland using 19.2.1 4231 BEOWULF. Let's see how it goes in 2nd season in the Championship. Thank you @knap as usual!
  5. For me it's not bad to convert spanish or french or whatever player if you bring them with 15 or 16yo. The Laporte situation, he is not basque, but moved to a basque youth team in France affiliated with Athletic and then automatically was enabled for playing in the first team. Saborit's family move to the Basque Country and I think there's no restrictions if you leave in the Basque Country to enter the youth system. So any young player who moves to Euskal Herria and develop his career there could play for Athletic. In real life they have brought Diarra, who started playing in Lleida (Catalunya) and moved to Txantrea (Iruña) affiliated to Athletic, but almost with 18 years he moved to Athletic. The player didn't fully develop in the Basque Country, but, he lives there, he played for a basque youth team. Is not like cheating playing solitaire, as our rivals say. We are not living in 1990 anymore where our rivals could only play 3 foreigners and no EU rules existed. What the supporters want, is players who are linked to the people, to the culture, to the traditions. Sometimes even basque born players don't show those things (Kepa, Herrera, Llorente, Javi Martinez) and they prefer to go for a bigger team (not challenge because winning with Athletic should be the most important thing for an Athletic young player) and money. Sometimes we see players from Argentina, Uruguay and other parts of the world giving everything for teams in Europe, and not the same from basque players at Athletic. That's why we have to keep the ones that want to be part.
  6. Nope, Athletic's transfer policy is for basques and non basques developed in any basque team. It doesn't matter if you have basque ancestry. BTW Forlan's grandmother was basque, from San Sebastian. He admitted that when he left Manchester he wanted to play at Athletic, but the policy I'm pretty sure is basques and non basques developed in the Basque Country.
  7. Hi @Kaniko Ramone! Cómo estás? I've found playing at my yearly Athletic Club save that 3 uruguayan players have the basque as second nationality and in reality they are not eligible to sign for the club. Being basques descendant don't allow you to play at the club. Only basques or developed in a basque youth club. Diego Forlan Jonathan Urretavizcaya Giorgian De Arrascaeta. Thanks!
  8. Have you noticed the database bug with some players (I found 3 from my country Uruguay) that instead of having as second nationality Spain, they have also the basque nationality? Would you buy them? FROM URUGUAY FROM MEXICO There are a couple more from Colombia but they've played at Athletic or Osasuna youth systems so they have correctly set the Basque nationality.
  9. I've finished my last save with FM18. First of all, thank you again @knap for this masterpiece.

Now let's move to FM19. Thank you @knap
  10. If this question was for me, I haven't started the First Division yet. Had no official games since October 2018 to February 2019 and couldn't play the game for a couple of days. I'll let you know after the Open Stage (the first round of the championship) is done.
  11. I'm going to put this here to leave the old FM18 thread. I used the old FM18 ARGUS343 in FM19. Finished the 1st season with my fav team in Uruguay and got the promotion to the First Division. Great numbers. FM19.0.1KnapARGUS343.fmf
  12. I've tried to duplicate ARGUS 343 last version with FM19. I'm going to try it with my local team and return with the results. FM19.0.1KnapARGUS343.fmf
  13. @knap what do you think is the best 4231 tactic for a subtop club as Athletic Club Bilbao?
