  1. You're probably too late to get involved for FM2020 release, as the data is being finalised over the next couple of weeks. Still, why not read the opening post of this thread and then reply accordingly? ie, email us, explaining why we should add you to our research team. Explain who you are, what team you watch every home game of, and what experience you have of the game and the data. We'll pass that info to the Head Researcher. May I remind you that the Head Researcher is extremely busy with hundreds of data checks at this late stage of the research cycle. If you are a good candidate then the Head Researcher will let you know if he needs any more information from you. if he doesn't reply before the game is out, it will be becauase he is extremely busy, as mentioned above, and (likely) has a researcher for the club you follow, already.
  2. Because we do not list all 200+ countries in the list. As the message says, if your nation is not on the list, email us and we pass it on to the relevant Head Researcher.
  3. Well clearly, like we do with every club, we will try our best to ensure as much data (players, staff, clubs, finances, kits etc|) is as accurate as we can get it to be. We'll reflect whatever debts are known. If you could link us to "your research" then I am sure we can check that against the information that has been made available in news sources here. @danielgear
  4. Your post was useful until you demanded that someone gets fired. Do not do that here again.
  5. If there are "many inaccuracies" then please post them here, with proof of the errors, and we can progress from there.
  6. Barnes is set with PA -8. Therefore it is randomised in every save (130-160). A PA of -8 gives the player every chance of becoming an established Premier League player and England international.
  7. It appears that a human being made an honest mistake. I apologise for this omission.
  8. Yes, we did notice those errors. However this was after the data lock for the update so we were unable to include them. I apologise for that.
  9. Thanks for that lbowman66. Mangan's move should appear in the imminent official winter data update.
  10. He was suspended from football until 1 March. Therefore, he will be back at the club from that date.
  11. He is still legally a schoolboy. He will not appear in the update for FM19. This is not up for debate.
  12. He's still a minor and a schoolboy, so no.
  13. I have not heard of that happening. I suggest you log it, with save game before the reduction, in the bugs forum.
