  1. You're right, I didn't know about this and it gives a more exact rather than rounded number. Still looks okay overall in my three year save, although I haven't looked much at individual clubs' intakes in detail.
  2. In the 'FM' drop down menu top right there's an option to add or remove leagues. That gives current player count too. Just checked mine, at three seasons in in a holiday test which I'm doing to check whether I've got problems with the player registration or playing other teams only home or away issues (which after three seasons seem fine too), I've got a few percent more players so it looks okay for my setup of all British and Irish leagues plus top divisions on half a dozen or so major countries.
  3. Not preordered, but my demo game will be with my team, Aldershot, to spend six game months getting used to new features and in particular any changes to the match engine/tactics. Then assuming no showstoppers (which from the twitch stream looks unlikely) buy the game and start a career with the five British and Irish leagues loaded, starting at Armagh in Northern Ireland where most of my FM careers begin.
  4. I got my desktop tower made for me four or five years ago, because for budget reasons I wanted to be able to upgrade gradually instead of fork out all at once. Maybe the time has come to think about my first upgrade; my main aim would be to have FM run a little quicker or be able to run more leagues although for FM20 it's fine for the five or six leagues I'm happy running. At the moment I'm on: Processor Intel(R) Core i3-2130 CPU @3.4GHz Installed RAM 8GB Graphics NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB Version 442.50 Monitor Packard Bell Maestro 243DL I only play FM and a coupl
  5. I haven't managed in Scotland for several years despite nearly always having Scotland loaded. I've always fancied having a go with St Johnstone (no idea why, I've never been to Perth, never seen them play, etc) so maybe this time...
  6. I like to keep the game at a good speed yet only have an average computer. That means leagues from a handful of countries so I have 'theme' saves of a group of neighbouring countries - UK & Ireland, South America etc with all their divisions loaded. As I play lower leagues what's going on elsewhere isn't a big issue. I did once try loading up the top divisions from the big leagues so the Champions League and Europa League were more competative but they added noticeably to processing time and I wasn't interested in seeing what was happening there so I deleted them.
  7. Could it be to do with the rule that a player can only sign for two clubs in a season? It doesn't look like it from the screenshots but on the other hand I had the same or similar message when I tried to sign a player without an explanation too and I had to work it out for myself.
  8. Is it to do with Bury going and someone needing a bye?
  9. I've only been relegated once, when I took over a newly promoted French side with only greyed players a few editions back. The challenge proved too much for me. I was heading for relegation with Bath City last year, but the board took action before it was mathematically confirmed. A handful of other times I've jumped.
  10. Sorry to hijack the thread, but it saves me starting a new one. Is there any way to give myself a nickname? You could in 19 but if you can in FM 20 it's in a different place. And you can edit appearance from the start screen or from your profile in a save.
  11. I stopped using sounds after my first ever CM match, not a reflection on the sounds which I've not listened to for over a decade I'd just rather have music.
  12. Good luck with the writing. I've managed to fit in both writing a novel and FM, so they're not mutually exclusive
