  1. Great response and very helpful, Thanks! Also that wage trick seemed to work like a miracle as it answered another years old question i had: Are players/agents aware of my exact finances? Thanks again!
  2. I'm managing Hartlepool United in it's 3rd year in the EPL after 4 straight promotions and currently defending EPL champs (all realistic things, i know). Since the beginning I've had my own wage structure in place to remain as profitable as possible. example: The 1st year in the EPL was £25k/w, 2nd year was £40k/w. I have quite a few incredibly good players who are now all asking for big wages or moves to superclubs. I'm talking £80-180k/w. The board will allow up to KP: £325k, FT: £185k. I'm spending a total of £687k/w out of £2.5m/w allowed. That's £20m/y less than when Pompy won the FA Cup. We know their story after. In comparison of stadium size(i built a new one and expanded it) in my save, currently in 2023/24, Bournemouth is paying their top player £120k/w with the majority from £50-95k. They've been mid table since the start. The question is: Does the AI know it's financial stability? In the past I've used the max amount of funds i could to make a winning squad and normally it results in mostly financial loss. But the game goes on. Perhaps the TV money is enough for the time being. I, however, am unsure of a 20k, maybe soon to be 27k seat stadium club paying those wages. Thanks for any input.
  3. I also used Dropbox and i have no clue why i didn't start years ago. Use cloud to export tactics and screen views so you always have them if you redo a PC.
  4. Do you know if players who need a work permit can play in Europa League matches if registered?
  5. Does the youth scouting package have anything to do with Youth Intake?
  6. Yes it does but it's horrible. It may never sync again for you. Use Dropbox instead.
  7. As Tipps said, you have no facilities to upgrade. But, you could be sharing a training facility with an affiliate. If not, ask for one to share training facilities with.
  8. I've seen this for the past few years. My issue or question with it is what is FM actually showing me? Why not just show the final play leading the the last chance? Instead i'm forced to watch a series of incredibly stupid plays leading to whats normally a cross/volley goal. It has nothing to do with tactics.
  9. I'm sure it's been discussed a thousand times before but the players, who don't understand international rules, asking for new contracts after good performances when i'm wage capped with FFP, when we are in a good promotion position and they are risking a squad revolt against their manager gets annoying like every time it happens which is about 100% of the time. It's normally something that can be dealt with but i have run into situations that ruined team morale over a backup player wanting a raise.
  10. Well FM's MLS is in full swing. Win the SS 2 years in a row...2 years in a row dumped out ot the first round. Never could figure it out since it's something that has been going on release after release. I'll eventually take over and dominate every trophy but it's still funny that the first year or two plays out the same in every FM. Wage adjustments are huge though. Don't know how to directly buy down a contract yet.
  11. CDM rarely ever get great ratings but that doesn't mean they aren't preforming what you have them doing. 6.5 is about as good as it gets. In FM15 i had J.Kimmich at a CM (Defensive Mid/Defend) roll and he had maybe 2 goals and 5 assists in 4-5 seasons but maintained a 88-90% pass completion rate and leading in interceptions always. Never above a 6.5 rating and when Bayer came calling to bring him home he went for 25m (bought for 3m).
  12. MLS is very hard to play. I've been very successful there but it is stressful in the offseason. Few of my biggest problems are: 1. Players asking for enormous wages. Yeah i get it, players moving to a new country or lower league want a bigger paycheck but at some point there has to be an understanding that MLS doesn't pay DP wages for Fullbacks. 2. League not increasing in reputation or evolving. 8 years in and the salary cap is still $3m. 3. Clubs not balancing their rosters and budgets out. After about 3-4 seasons you should be in complete dominance mode due to the fact that other clubs can only keep a roster of about 15-20 with most making $200+ a year.
  13. -There. Is. No. Such. Thing. As: "Most Vulnerable." FACT: A team that scores is more likely to score again than immediately concede. -We have a corner. It's headed away by the opposition and punted 90 yards for a chance against me. They have a corner. It's headed away, possession retained by opposition for 3 more tries on goal. -"This is my new signing..."who has injured himself on his way to the presser, out 2-3 months. -In Game: "i see you have made all 3 subs before the 70th minute...heres an injury and a red card . Enjoy." -Opposition gets a red card. Last 15 minutes of the game and we're down by 1...speed simulates to last 5 seconds game over kthxbye. WTF -Press: Player not offered new contract yet! Only 19 months left! Cause maybe he just signed a new one 6 months ago?
  14. When you go out and get National coaching licenses for real because of a video game.
  15. I have a custom US database. Is there any way to allow certain countries or continents into the squad registration so they don't fall under the foreign player registry. Example: All American and Canadian players are National or HG selections but I'd like to add all CONCACAF countries too and maybe more.
