  1. At the moment nobody has any idea what is going to happen, when things become clearer SI can begin to implement those outcomes into the game. Sadly I think if clubs do go bankrupt they will be removed from the game just like Bury in this season's edition of FM. But lets not try to think about that, lets try to be positive and enjoy this years FM. It allows us a chance to escape reality and enter the world for Football Manager.
  2. Yeah, but like most not sure what factors come into play. I'm in La Liga with Zaragoza and in my second season the B Team was promoted to the Second DIvision B
  3. I don't know if this is the right place to post this, but I've recently bought FM2020 (PC Touch Version) I'm always losing my talented youngsters (according to my HoYD) to bigger clubs, I'm aware this is kinda realistic, but there must be a way of me keeping hold of some of them? What happens is, I get the Youth Intake and I offer a Youth Contract to the ones that looks like they could develop well or simply add some depth to my B Team. However, as soon as the agree to the Youth Contract a bigger club (eg. A. Bilbao) come in an offer him a contract, they always agree. Is there a way of me attempting to keep hold of them?
  4. I used to enjoy the Czech League until (I think FM18) the format was changed to incorpate a Championship Playoff, I normally start in the Spanish 2nd Division or 2B
  5. Most likely will delay the release of the next FM, but I'm happy with that rather than a member of the SI Staff becoming infected due to having to commute to work to work on this release. In terms of how the next series will begin, who knows because no one has a clue what is going to happen at the moment.
  6. I'm living in Spain and purchased FM2020 just help me get through this two week lockdown, probably would've lost my mind otherwise!! In game if a play ever has an illness I always send them home.
  7. Probably about ten, dread to think what it was like back in the CM 01/02 days!
  8. I could be being daft, but I don't see that much of a difference in the style between this and FM18.
  9. I'll probably end up buying it, same as I do every year, however this time I might only buy the Touch version so I'm hoping it comes with the ability to add other leagues (via an editor) but I'm dubious to be honest.
  10. Probably been mentioned a fair few times already, but I would like to have the Editor just simply to make non-playable Nations playable. I play FM Touch because I can't be bothered with the depth of FM anymore and FM Touch is a simple alternative for me.
  11. Can't exactly remember but I'd guess it would be Charity Shield with Man Utd on CM 00-01, that was my first CM/FM game.

    Map of Clubs

    Same, FM and CM taught me random cities in various countries but I have no clue of their location in their respective countries!!

    I like this idea, it's always nice to learn about where football clubs are located especially when managing in countries you're not too familiar with.
  14. On my save, Fort William (just promoted to Ladbrokes League Two) sacked their manager after 42 days, lost four Betfred Cup games and one League game!! Thought that was harsh!!
  15. On FM16 I took Slavia Praha to back-to-back Europa League wins and became the dominant team in the Czech Rep, spent about ten seasons on that save. Was hard to stop my top players getting poached by the top top European sides. On this FM I've just spent seven seasons with Cowdenbeath and took the to the Championship and finances meant I struggled to take the team to the Premier League, it was hard to get any decent fees for my Key Players when they were getting snapped up by the top teams and it's hard to keep replacing them. Sadly resigned and moved to Russia.
  16. I've noticed a few decent one appearing from the Czech Rep, can usually grab them at a decent price, also Portugal is always good.
  17. If you wanted to use a variety of tactics you can save your tactic and create a new one and then easily switch between them when you feel it's needed. It's not a problem in FM because familiarity with a tactics isn't on FMT.
  18. I've seen Wales win the 2022 World Cup, beating Burkina Faso in the Second Round, England in the Quarter Finals, Portugal in the Semi Final then Germany in the Final!
  19. It seems to still not be working, substitutions only work when using one of the match plans from the drop down menu. Hopefully it's fixed soon.
  20. There is an unlockable for this, if you can go undefeated in a season you will unlock it and it removes all the non-eu/player restrictions.
  21. I used to 'cheat' on the old CM days, but nowadays I play 'normally'. Well I do always use the unsackable unlockable when I've unlocked it on FMT not sure if that is technically classed as cheating to be honest.
  22. I had the same on my Man Utd save, didn't get given any transfer budget in the first January window.
  23. I could be wrong, but wasn't there a similar issue with Portugal on the last FM too? Able to pick up great talents in Portugal for really cheap?
  24. I have the same issue, still the Assistant isn´t making any substitutions during games. Kinda ruining the FMT side of the game for me.
