  1. @beutros It appears to be a skinning issue: This is why I avoid custom skins - they are not supported and so result in lots of bugs.

    Broken Promises

    12. Perform much better on the pitch and improve club's standing = if you don't win all competitions you're fired with no warning on a match day

    Broken Promises

    I've refined this one: 10. Sell influential player because he wants to leave = forced to make additional promises to appease angry teammates, because not possible to give correct reason for sale

    Broken Promises

    11. Assign penalty taker = must take all penalties even if unable to walk.

    Broken Promises

    I've read about a number of manager responses where something is lost in translation to FM-speak. I've tried to pull these together below, I'm sure there are others that can be added: 1. Offer a new contract = agree a new contract no matter how unreasonable the player's demands 2. Give youth players a chance in the first team = promise to play youth players developed from own academy 3. Will make play-offs = remain in play-off positions all season 4. Promoted in two years = achieve automatic promotion in two years 5. Sell player at end of next season = sell player in two weeks 6. Give player playing time next season = must make more than 31 appearances next season 7. Assign as a free-kick taker = must take all free-kicks 8. Use player in preferred position/role = use player in preferred position/role with no changes to default player instructions whatsoever 9. Give first team football = ensure plays in all matches a few weeks before promise deadline 10. Sell influential player because he wants to leave = lie about why he was sold to other players because correct reason is not available

    Lost the dressing room

    I would definitely report it in the dynamics section of the bugs forum, ideally uploading a save just before it kicked off if you have one.

    Lost the dressing room

    @Junkhead I can only surmise it is due to your relatively low reputation compared with the club. Although at tier 5, I expect Tranmere are a big fish in that pond having spent many recent years higher up the league pyramid and therefore it will be more of a struggle to maintain managerial support than at other tier 5 clubs. That said, the reaction certainly seems too extreme and could be a bug. What is your dynamics > overview > managerial support rating?

    @Junkhead What is your league position media prediction and what is the pundit's expectations usually ahead of each match?

    Scouting

    @G J White Unfortunately not, it's logged as a feature request for future versions. However, you could use Rien102's helpful workaround, especially useful if you have coaching staff with CA and PA as good as or better than your scouts.
  10. Exactly. I have a midfielder whom is ranked "ineffectual" as a wide playmaker, even though his average of the key/desirable attributes is double figures at conference south level. I played him in that role anyway and in his first match he got 3 assists. How rookie players are supposed to figure this out is beyond me.

    Player Promises

    I strongly recommend reporting it as a bug in the dynamics section of the bugs forum, so that SI can take a look. Ideally, they would like saves uploadedbefore the 'promise' was made, but if you have got one before the transfer request that might be sufficient, plus one afterwards.

    Absolutely ridiculous "promise"

    I strongly recommend you report as a bug in the dynamics section of the bugs forum. Ideally upload saves from before and after the Bonnuci transfer request, if you have them. I also strongly recommend that this is also logged as a bug, ideally if you have a save just before Ritchie asks to leave and then another after Lascelles complains.

    What was Abate's squad status?

    Absolutely ridiculous "promise"

    All valid points, but particularly in respect of 3) - I have commented previously on another thread: 1. Relationship: "Very close"; and 2. Opinion of you: "Holds you in the highest regard as head coach"; When a promise has been broken, it is my view that 1. & 2. should militate against a player's reaction being as strong as asking to leave, Instead resulting in a bit of a grumble and request for more assurance. On the other hand, had the relationship been already strained, indifferent or neutral then a transfer request would be more understandable. Is broken promise > automatic transfer request the intended outcome regardless of the manager-player dynamic? Also, if a promise was not being fulfilled, you'd expect the player to start making disgruntled noises during the period in question rather than being best buddies all season then having a total meltdown as soon as the deadline has passed?

    Player Promises

    If you browse the dynamics section of the bugs forum, you will see there are plenty of examples of over-zealous behaviour as a result of ambiguous promises not being kept, or worse, the game erroneously perceiving the promise hasn't been kept. This includes examples of where a promise gets duplicated, so even when the promise is met, the duplicate isn't met resulting in massive fallout. The most extreme examples I have read are ones where users have won their league competition, but fell foul of not meeting some minor promise of the following ilk and were sacked: "play more youngsters in the first team" (it means youth intake, but doesn't specify this) even though the user did play more youth intake players "give back up full-back more playing time" (amount of playing time not specified) even though the back up full-back started half of the matches
