  1. I seem to be getting a crash dump whenever I the game exits from a hghlight during a match so I never get more than 3 or 4 minutes into a match. Holidaying through seems to work, but everything else causes a crash. I'm playing in windowed mode, with a small database in only one nation and managed to play the demo with no crashes. Any ideas?
  2. I don't remember it happening in 08 or 09 so far. It seems that it does happen at some clubs, newcastle, spurs, liverpool, man city? and it does depend on the chairman/board so why not reapply it to the game? With regards to those saying it takes the fun out of transfers, well you still need to find the players, you still negotiate your own bids and contracts, it just you have more accountability to the board, just like real life. Besides, if you have a good transfer record and don't tell the board one thing and do another the system should allow the board to give you more freedom in your transfers. Particularly as you start the game as a complete unknown manager. Clubs veto transfers from experienced managers so why wouldn't they do it to an unknown? Apologies for the Liverpool bias, but as I'm a fan I know more about it, but one rumour around the Gareth Barry situation this summer was that the board did not feel that spending 18million on a central midfielder with Lucas, Gerrard, Mascherano and Alonso on the books was wise so they didn't sanction it. Why can't this be replicated in the game? I'm sure Rafa negotiated with them over this, so why not be able to do this in the game? I like the idea of it being part of contract negotiations, it does happen IRL (Rafa's situation now). It could be the difference between takingone job and not another.
  3. It only came to mind because the Robbie Keane situation. I remembered a few years ago (FM05/06) the baord used to block transfers and even sign players. Rumour has it that Keane was a Rick Parry signing, not a Rafa one. Could this be mirrored perhaps?
  4. I suppose it might depend on the level of interaction you could have with the board. If they query the signing then you could explain that he was a backup. The same with a youth player. Again it could come back to haunt you, if you say someone is being signed for the first team and then you never play him, they may not give you as much control in future.
  5. Could the boards decision to allow the transfer in the Chelsea situation be linked to the players CA/PA. If it is higher than the player he is rumporued to be replacing then they would allow it?
  6. Really it just hands your shortlist to your board and they monitor it. You could also ask you Ass Man to give you a hand or import directly from your scout report. I mentioned about telling the board you would sell so you could buy, if you didn't do the selling then it could come back to haunt you in future windows.
  7. It seems in real life that managers give their list of targets to the board and then the board OKs them and the manager can go after them. How about being able to draw up a list for your board just before a transfer window and then going after them? You could then justify your targets to the board. Then the better they perform the more leeway you have over who you can bid on. For example, my Liverpool team at the moment has Aguero, Torres, Huntelaar and Keirrson upfront. If I went to the board with a new striker as a target they may query why I need a new one and not allow me to sign him. Then i may have the option to reply and say that I plan on selling one my existing strikers. Another example maybe if I want to sign someone from a lower league, the baord may express their concern that he is not of the required quality. This could then be linked to baord confidence in transfers, they more confidence they have in you to make successful transfers they more likely they are to agree to your list of targets. Interference could be linked to rating in Editor. Eg Ramos at Spurs is rumoured to have not had much control, so Spurs would have high interference. Ferguson seems to be able to sign whoever so his chairman would have a low interference and not often query your list of targets. Also I think it would be good if their were more fan reactions to player sales. For example outrage if I sold Carragher and Gerrard, or praise if its a good piece of business?

I haven't read through all the pages, but nothing came up in a search, so apoligies if this has been mentioned before.
