  1. No option to request a new stadium.

    The exact date the Pirelli Stadium was built taken from the database is 1st July 2005 (it was in reality the 16th July). Therefore 20 years runs out at the end of the season.
  2. I had this happen before with a different Belarusian team (Bereza) on FM2014 and the affiliation got automatically cancelled after the end of the season, I didn't get promoted the first season but I won the league in the second season and got promoted.
  3. [Europe] (Official) Specific Issues

    I've linked up the official UEFA rule book in my previous post and the quote in my post is directly taken from page 76 of it. The procedure is as follows: End of Season 1: The finishing UEFA position sets the national qualifying for the following season Season 2: Teams compete for the positions set in stone at the end of Season 1. Season 3: Teams take part in the UEFA competitions based on the positions at the end of Season 1. Take for example Switzerland: At the end of the 2014/2015 season - Switzerland moved into the top 12 guaranteeing a group stage spot. However when the 2015/2016 Champions League took place FC Basel had to play in the 3rd qualifying round. It was only in 2016/2017 when FC Basel took an automatic place in the group stage.
  4. [Europe] (Official) Specific Issues

    You need to take this one up with UEFA unfortunately! It's on page 76 for reference. Annex D.2 Reference periods for rankings The associations' positions in the 2016/17 UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League access list (Annex A) are determined on the basis of the association rankings established at the end of the 2014/15 season, on the basis of the associations' coefficients from seasons 2010/11 to 2014/15 inclusive.
  5. OhHoopedOne - you aren't the first and you sure aren't going to be the last! There are only 2 databases. Football Manager (17.1.0) = Release database 17.3.0 = Winter transfer update 17.3.1 was a game update ONLY - there were no database changes at all. On a side note - Sports Interactive must change the naming of databases as this happens every single year. Name them 2017 Release and 2017 Winter, or after former football managers, or even Miles' pets/children/favourite food! Literally anything as long as it doesn't clash with the game naming versions.
  6. I am a big Paradox Interactive fan but to say they are free is misleading. Their patches are funded by lots and lots of expensive DLC. Crusader Kings 2, a 5 year old game, plus DLC packs (not including the 2 most recent DLC) is on special offer on Steam - 15% off at £178.65. If Paradox made Football Manager we would probably get only the English, German, Italian, French, Swedish, Danish, Norwegian playable leagues. Want the Spanish league? £20, facepacks - £1 a league, pre game editor - £4.
  7. [Asia] (Official) Specific Issues

    Seedings in the AFC Champions League only change every two years - this was changed in January 2014. The November 2014 rankings set the qualifications for 2015 and 2016. The November 2016 rankings set the qualifications for 2017 and 2018, and the November 2017 rankings set the qualifications for 2019 and 2020 - detailed in section 2.
  8. [Europe] (Official) Specific Issues

    Europa League winners do not automatically qualify for the Champions League group stages, they only have a guaranteed spot in the play offs. Whether you start in the Best Placed or the Champions route depends on who won the Champions League and where they qualified. I suspect that the team winning the Champions League would have qualified for the third qualifying round of the best placed route. Rangers have correctly taken the spot you vacated. And Olly if this helps: All of the scenarios are in the Champions League rule book on page 11.
  9. You need to draw up a new table for results against everyone except Anderlecht. This is a rule that has been in place for a very long time - at least 15 years. I have calculate that the results you have not shown was as follows: Valencia 1 Porto 1 Anderlecht 1 Fenerbahce 4 Porto 4 Anderlecht 1 This leaves the table as follows: Fenerbahce 5 GF 5 GA - Fenebahce confirmed as group winners Porto 4GF 4GA Valencia 4GF 4GA Results between Valencia and Porto Valencia 1 Porto 1 Porto 1 Valencia 0 Porto go through as a result of games between the two teams.
  10. [Colombia] (Official) Data Issues

    Here is last year's league table with teams playing 32 games. You play regional rivals in week 8 and 24 as shown here.
  11. No youth intake day

    Torquay closed their youth academy down in 2015. In game you can make a board request to reopen it - not sure how much money you would need or how easy it is though.
  12. Offside on an Own Goal?

    Southampton had a Wes Morgan own goal ruled offside this weekend.
  13. [West Ham United] (Official) Data Issues

    Additionally Calleri has an Italian passport. http://www.express.co.uk/sport/football/692567/West-Ham-Jonathan-Calleri-Inter-Milan-Premier-League-Serie-A-Football-Transfer-News
  14. FM17 - Work Permit issues

    Only received it 23rd July 2016. It is a data issue on FM, I will report it on the West Ham data issues thread.
  15. At my wits end

    You might be better off posting in the Tactics forum, if you want people to have a look at your tactics. Far more people look in there. There is also a Sheffield Wednesday guide in the Good Players and Team Guide.
