  2. What clarity do you need? The points you raised are interesting and will be considered by the GTFC researcher for the next release of Football Manager, as happens in every thread in this forum.
  3. I cannot stress this often enough. The answers to all of these questions are in the opening two posts. The very art of a researcher is to look at the detail, and in this case, the detail that is required is in the opening two posts. It clearly asks you to contact us via the scouting at sigames dot com email. Obviously we need to put that statement in red, size 90 font, at the end of every paragraph in this thread to labour the point!! If the name of your country is not listed (there are 200+ countries in the worlds and we did not list them all), then email us scouting at sigames dot com and we will respond to your request. Contact us at scouting at sigames dot com if you want to research any club or any league.
  4. Do you watch Southport play football matches regularly, keep in touch with all news about the club and have a keen interest in the club and its players? If so, please apply.
  5. All is explained in the opening two posts of this thread. Please read those and then, if you are interested, please email scouting at sigames dot com.
  6. Thank you David_H1997. From the second post in this thread, where we discuss English research, the situation for non-league football is clearly described. I quote... "ISTHMIAN PREMIER LEAGUE: (Click to go to the Isthmian (Ryman) Premier and Div One] (Official) Data Issues thread and Head Researcher profile.) Vacancies: Billericay, Bognor Regis, Folkestone, Grays, Harlow, Harrow, Havant & W, Hendon, Kingstonian, Leatherhead, Leiston, Lowestoft, Mertsham, Met. Police, Needham Market, Staines, Tonbridge, Wingate & F.

Please apply to Head Researcher Jake if you are interested in helping with research at that level, or email Dean (scouting at sigames dot com) who will pass your query on.." Ipswich Wanderers are in the Eastern Counties Division. We do not have separate researchers for individual clubs at level nine. Instead, we have a researcher for each level nine league. If you are interested in updating the data for the Eastern Counties League. Please email us (scouting at sigames dot com) explaining why we should consider you for that role. Therefore, please email us (scouting at sigames dot com) explaining why you should be considered to research Needham Market, and we can consider your application then.
  7. What club in Suffolk do you watch week in week out etc, as described above?
  8. The db has black hair, skin tone 16 and Northern European, actually. The Northern European is obviously a human error, a typo. Thank you for letting us know.
  9. Vacancies currently exist for the following English clubs (National League Premier and above): Aldershot Town, Braintree Town, Bury, Charlton Athletic, Cheltenham Town, Crawley Town, Dover Athletic, Eastleigh, Everton, Maidstone United, Milton Keynes Dons, Northampton Town, Notts County, Stevenage, Swansea City, Swindon Town, Tottenham Hotspur.
  10. Whether German clubs are interested in Ehmer, born in Germany, will depend on the size of the database you are using and which leagues you have loaded up. He's a German-born player with CA 110. Why shouldn't German teams be interested in him? Unless, of course, 110 is overrated, which it could well be. His Home Rep (in Germany) has already been culled (70) to reflect his lack of reputation there. Of course, you have not explained which 10+ German clubs are interested in him. (I can't see any issue with Preston being interested). Also, if this is a bug, you must log it in the Transfers bugs section so that we can see your savegame where this is happening, and only then will be really be able to see why it is happening. I have a huge savegame which I started with 17.3 data and 15 European nations loaded including England and Germany (I am managing in Turkey), and in March 2017 of that save I can see that Ehmer has no interest (major or minor) from any clubs at all, never mind German clubs. Therefore we need your specific save to see why he is so popular within it, as I cannot see it in my specific save.
  11. Linqueur: When contacting that email, you will need to explain why we should consider adding you to the research team. Simply living somewhere does not qualify someone to be a researcher for FM.
  12. For Middle-East Data Issues, please post them in the appropriate thread. (ie Asia).
  13. Thank you SeaChelski - your work on finding obscure duplicates is very much appreciated.
  14. Link doesn't work for me. What exact options does that pdf document report, please?
  15. As Head Researcher for the EFL here at SI, I'm managing to find some time to look around the wider forum now that the winter update is out. I've really enjoyed looking at this thread, and it has helped me feel inspired to 'go again' for next season's release. The use of snipped images really does help support your stories. I'm also reinvigorated to start a new save myself (not really had time before), but there are so many good stories to try to emulate that I do not know which club to start with! That's testimony to the great writing and enthusiasm in this thread, so thank you all very much for that.
