  1. Hi all! I've recently started streaming FM20 on Twitch if anyone's interested in watching me play and listening to me droning on about what I'm doing. Mostly very calm and relaxing stream with occasional bursts of excitement from me, and the odd guest (just gaming friends I've made online, nobody famous or anything like that).I've only been doing it for about 3 weeks so far. I have 38 followers, which means I only need another 12 and I can become an affiliate. My channel is Musophil's channel on TwitchI'm just starting my 3rd season in the game.Season 1: Started with SAFC, finished top of League 1 and won the Leasing dot com Trophy.Season 2: Started badly in the Championship, got the sack after 15 matches. Got the Birmingham City job almost immediately, took them from 21st to 6th and won the playoffs.Season 3: Just started my first Premier League campaign with BCFC. 4 matches in so far, currently sitting third! Anyway, hope you join me. I'm hoping I can build up a nice friendly community and I'm happy to answer any questions you might have about the game. All the very best, Musophil
  2. FM19 or FM20? I played in the MLS for a few seasons in FM19. The rules seem scary at first with such a low wage limit, but between Designated Contracts and your General Allocation Money that can be spent on reducing wages for the wage cap, it's not so bad.
  3. Why does the "Position/Role/Duty" training field keep resetting? I've seen this happen repeatedly. As my most recent example, I have a central midfielder that I've been retraining as a left-back for about 18 months. A few days ago (ingame days) I noticed his P/R/D had reset to Central Midfielder. I changed it back to LB:Full Back:Attack, and continued with the game, then just checked again and it has reset to Central Midfielder again. I've checked my Staff Responsibilities and I am responsible for both General Training and Individual Training for my first team squad. Why won't it stick with the training I've given him?
  4. Oh cool, I'll do that in the morning. Just about to head to bed. Yeah, the second and final ACL registration of the season happens on the 1st of December. I just passed that date in my current game tonight. Transfer window is open for the duration of January just like in the English leagues. Thanks again. Oh, one more thing, the entire World Club Championship in my game was cancelled one season because of fixture congestion! I was gutted as I'd won the ACL the previous season and the WCC is a massive cash boost to our little African teams working on shoestring budgets. Is this something that happens periodically in the game because of international matches or was it a one-off because perhaps IRL it has already been cancelled for that year? Or was it cancelled because my fixture list was too full, and therefore I should always try to get knocked out of the domestic cup at the earliest opportunity to make sure I've got space in my fixtures list for the WCC? -------------- Edit: I'll also mention to them that I think there's a typo in my team name: "Royal Eagles Football FC" in the second tier of the South African league. Royal Eagles Football Football Club. I'm actually growing quite attached to them. I was looking for them on the internet the other day with the intention of buying a replica shirt from their website, but it turns out they don't even have an active website anymore. Their domain has expired, nobody has posted to their Facebook page for a few years, and they were only actually founded in 2014 according to the "Club" page in FM. Weird. I need to know MORE!
  5. Ah, fair enough. Thanks for the reply. While you're here, can I just check something? Registration dates for the African Champions League: Currently there's the normal registration at the start of the season, then another one before the January window where you can add more players to your squad, but without actually having had a transfer window to buy players yet. There's no more registration points during or after the January window, so if you've bought new players in Jan they can't play in the ACL until the following season in August, and if you've sold players in the January window then you've lost them from your ACL squad and can't replace them. Seems weird, just wondering if it's correct or if there's been a typo in the code somewhere when the date for registration was entered and nobody noticed until now because so few people ever play in the South African leagues. ;-)
  6. Hi all. Are league rules (for example, those determining foreign player limits) dynamic or fixed permanently? At the beginning of each season I've noticed I get a reminder telling me of the league rules. Will these rules always remain the same or could a change be triggered by something that happens ingame? For example, I'm playing a career in the South African leagues, where you can only register 5 foreign players in the league squad. I'm doing pretty well, to the point where about 90% of the South African national squad are in my league squad. Every season there are at least a few matches where my squad is decimated by international call-ups for important matches, as certain cup matches clash with international matches due to fixture pile-ups, and every time it happens I have a moan at the media saying how ridiculous it is that club matches and international matches clash. Will my ingame complaints to the media ever achieve anything? Will one day the league decide "hey he's right, let's prevent overlaps" or "let's allow more foreign players so that when this sort of thing happens your team can be better prepared by having a greater spread of nationalities"? Or are my team forever damned with the curse of player limits?
  7. Do his wage bonuses, future wage rises, "wage after x games (etc)" {or future payments for his transfer} take him over the structure {or over your transfer budget}?
  8. update: My average attendance is actually 98% not 95%. So, I think it's either: - Season ticket sales not high enough yet - Time since stadium was built not long enough yet - My chairman just sucks (though I would still expect the option to ask him about it to be here if it was this) Anyone?
  9. I have one big reason for suspecting that it would be possible to expand this stadium once I hit the criteria: They didn't build the corners. It is an 82.5k stadium that only has ends and sides. It looks really weird, and very much as if it is meant to have those corner parts. The ends look taller than they are wide. xD I have been hitting the 82.5k ceiling in certain matches every year.
  10. It's never as simple as "who has the higher star rating", "who has the most expensive value" or even "who has the best current form". There are many many things that need to be taken into account when choosing a starting XI for any particular match.
  11. How does the stadium expansion mechanic work in terms of when you can expand compared with season ticket sales, average attendances, and time since last expansion or since the last time a new stadium was built? I built a new 82,500 capacity stadium almost six seasons ago and sold roughly 55000 season tickets this season with an average attendance of about 95% capacity. The average attendance has stayed roughly the same since the stadium was built. Each year since the new stadium was built I've been selling about 1000 more season tickets than the previous year, so I was wondering if this needed to be at a certain level before the board would offer me the chance to expand. Or is it that they're not offering me the chance to expand because enough time hasn't yet passed since the stadium was built? I've read on here that when a new stadium is built there's a minimum of either 20 or 25 years before you can build another new stadium, but is there a similar sort of time limit before you can expand a new stadium? Thanks in advance.
  12. Reason: If I'm choosing which players are to be available for the reserves, I'd like to be able to filter out the injured players and those that aren't at the club, but still see the players that are suspended from the first team to allow me to make them available for the reserves. Also an "Invert filter" checkbox wouldn't go amiss.
  13. You already can, can't you? Isn't there a "Use real players" tickbox or something similar in the New Game wizard?
