  1. The Republic of Ireland clubs qualifying for the Challenge (Irn Bru) cup should be the top 2 teams in the league that don't qualify for Europe. So #4 & #5 or #5 &#6 (depending on who won the cup). I'm in August 2019 & the 1st & 2nd placed teams from 2018 League of Ireland season have been drawn in the competition rather than 5th & 6th.
  2. Game not updating in steam for me... Getting an error saying "missing file privileges". Restarting steam isn't doing anything. Any ideas?
  3. - State what you think is specifically wrong in your league. The league is starting before the season opening President's cup (Irish version of the Community Shield in England - league winner vs. cup winner). - State how you think it should be working. The President's cup should be on the Sunday before the league starts. - State reasons/proof for your corrections/improvements. 2018 President's cup was on Sunday 11 Feb 2018: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2018_President_of_Ireland's_Cup 2018 League of Ireland started on Friday 16 Feb 2018: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2018_League_of_Ireland_Premier_Division
  4. Applied these recommendations a few days ago and I'm flying through seasons here. It's reinvigorated the game for me. Great post!
  5. Can you not kind of do that already though - i.e. low basic wage but really high appearance fee? I've gone with this approach before in previous FMs as a LLM manager.
  6. So this rubbish got voted through today unfortunately. Another master stroke from UEFA. Probably it'll be included in the January update for FM2017 I'd imagine http://en.as.com/en/2016/12/09/footb...03_008421.html
  7. Here's the file. Brexit 1st July 2016_09B10D28-B4FA-4BFF-81A1-2BF290C4DDD8.fmf
  8. Yeah I've been able to force Brexit using Advanced editor - Set the trigger date to 1st July and the % chance of happening to 100% for 2016 and change the % chance for each country within the UK that you wish to get it if you wish. Set a country to 0% if you don't what that country to have it (e.g. Scotland, Wales, NI, etc.) Also set the % of Bosman not happening and existing players getting permanent WPs both to 0%. You won't get hard Brexit each time but as the trigger date is set to the first day of your save, just start a new game and try again. It avoids having to waste game time initially before later in the save getting a soft Brexit.
  9. This isn't being voted on until November 28th at the next UEFA club competitions committee meeting. So it's not 100% confirmed yet.
  10. Do you get alerted about Brexit scenarios in game if not managing in the UK but in another EU country?
  11. I have a few questions on Trained at Club (0-21) homegrown status. Is this type of homegrown status only relevant for England? If yes, why is it even shown if managing outside of England? If not, why is it not possible to differentiate between this and the normal (15-21) homegrown status before signing a player? For example, I am managing in Ireland and one of my players is 'Trained at Club (0-21)' but I do not see how this is relevant? I cannot register him as homegrown for Europe and domestically there is no homegrown rules. If I had this players in England, his homegrown status would have no relevancy either as he was not trained in England so why include this at all? I only signed this player as he had the homegrown status for my club showing when searching in the 'Scouting' section for homegrown qualified players for Europe. His 'Eligibility' section does not indicate that this is not the type of homegrown I need.
  12. Also a biannual buyer. Have the exact same years as yourself (i.e. an 'oddy'). Would definitely recommend this version based on the beta as an upgrade vs 2015.
  13. Not all university teams should be amateur though. UCD in Dublin do pay their players for example and not all players are still in education there. Likewise in South America clubs are fully professional and retain connections to the educational institutions in name only.
