  1. I’ve just met a players release clause, but want him to join at the end of the season instead of during January. There’s no expiry on the clause, and the contract runs for another 2 seasons, so presumably they should have to accept the bid - but if I don’t go with the next available date for transfer they’re able to reject the bid. Is this correct? Paying full £15m fee up front so no clauses that could drag it out
  2. Just tested this. I think Mike has nailed it with the staff attributes. Editor worked as normal (as Luke showed) with Eric Bailly, but not with Romero (who has staff attributes). Thanks for your help EDIT: confirmed this with other players who also have staff attributes now. will just avoid them for the scenario I’m setting up.
  3. Thanks Mike. I’ll double check this when I next boot up the game. It was Sergio Romero in summer 2021 so that is potentially the issue.
  4. Hi Luke Afraid not. It let me search a club, then asked me to choose the role and then just transferred them on a free. i was expecting that box but it never appeared
  5. Hi all Quick question - I tried to sell my players for varying fees using the in-game editor (a scenario I ran on FM20) but now it just transfers the player for free without any options for fees etc. Has this option been removed or is there a different way of achieving this? I wanted to avoid just selling all on a free and adding a lump to my transfer budget/finances, but can do if that’s the only way
  6. Can’t find another thread about this but it’s happened to me just now also. selected all 11 takers in a particular order and it’s running through them in reverse
  7. Thanks Kev. Do you happen to have an opinion on the general quality of either? I had a HP Pavilion before and I didn’t think it was great, but I don’t know if that was a one off or if there’s been improvements since etc as it was 2011 I bought it.
  8. https://www.ebuyer.com/1129539-lenovo-legion-5-ryzen-7-16gb-512gb-ssd-rtx-2060-15-6-win10-82b10062uk?_sgm_campaign=scn_8b13a0d7b2000&_sgm_source=1129539&_sgm_action=click sorry I meant this. I feel like this would potentially sort me out for the next few years playing FM at a decent level. I don’t really need graphics as I prefer 2D Classic but performance wise I couldn’t find much else in the price bracket other than the HP Pavilion on Box with the same RYZEN 7 4800H processor
  9. Hung off for months waiting for a good deal then missed the Lenovo EBuyer deal that’s now out of stock Do you reckon it’ll come by again or just go for the HP Pavilion on Box?
  10. Thanks Jordan - nothing better in the price range that you can recommend off hand? Read one or two reviews that say it’s pricey for its spec
  11. Been dithering for months over this - but want a new laptop for when FM21 comes. Play on 2D Classic so not worried about graphics (but do want at least FHD so I don’t have to scroll on profiles and can watch Netflix etc) Anything better in the price bracket than this? https://www.box.co.uk/81Y6005UUK-Lenovo-Legion-5i-15_2943292.html#DetailTop
  12. How does your 30 year stadium sponsorship end in 100 years?
  13. Cheers Ed - I don’t play in windowed but is still an issue full screen. out of interest - is there a minimum vertical resolution figure I should be looking at?
  14. Hi all, Still on the hunt for a new laptop for FM (previously posted in January). Budget has increased since then and actually been eyeing up an XPS 15 if I can find a decent 0% finance deal. Biggest bug bear for me however, is using the default skin on my latitude e5270 is the scrolling. For example, on a player profile screen, underneath the attributes where you have career stats etc. I have to scroll to see most of the information on those, rather than it just being visible which really annoys me. Not sure if this is down to screen size, resolution or both (already playing at 85% zoom). Does anyone know what I’d need to look out for to avoid this with the new laptop? And does anyone use an XPS 15 know if it avoids that issue? (I’m looking at the 7590 most likely if that effects anything). thanks,
  15. Bit late to the show, but my scouts in my Leicester save found this guy for me. Signed him for £1m in the first Jan transfer window. Schmeichel kept getting injured and Danny Ward was awful, so brought this guy in as a new no2 but I think long term he may take over as no1 for a couple of years. Had considered deals for Butland/Lafont in the summer but this guy might cut the mustard himself.
  16. Anyone recommend a good laptop for the below specs please: - Min 15.6 inch screen (currently got a Dell e5470 and I can’t stand having to scroll for stats etc on FM) - Max Budget £750 (although obviously cheaper the better) - Want to be able to run a hefty FM Game (plenty of countries/leagues, large dB) for a long term journeyman career and it be fast enough to not drive me crazy or let my missus think I don’t need to be fully focussed at all times I don’t use 3D (only 2D Classic but sometimes even only commentary). other than that would only be used for day to day internet browsing etc (possibly some rollercoaster tycoon) nothing major
  17. Aye, I don’t tend to use it against top, top teams but works fine 90% of the time. Also use him in a 424 which can go against me as well. Have invested in defence and midfield to ensure some balance but defensively hasn’t gone entirely to plan. Tempted to ship out Ake and Maguire (both had interest in the summer window) and buy someone like De Ligt. Need to save some money for Donnarumma in the summer as a DDG replacement as Henderson is shipping too many goals to take the #1 spot.
  18. If they’re both in my XI I’ll be playing a 4231 with Pog as one of the 2 and Bruno as an AM behind the lone striker. if I’m only playing 2 in the middle I’ll rotate to have either; DLP, BBM, or a BWM.
  19. I’ve done 2 seasons with United now. Their revenues are so high I’ve concentrated mostly on improving the squad initially (losing deadwood and strengthening depth) and getting everyone I want to keep happy. Season 1 - Qualified for CL and got to the EL final losing narrowly to Bayern Munich. Not a great performance in the cups. Season 2 - Finished 2nd in the PL (took Liverpool to the last day but lost by a point). Lost 3-2 in the CL final to Atletico Madrid in stoppage time, knocked out in the FA Cup semis to Liverpool. In terms of the squad I’ve got the deadwood out anyway possible so by the start of season 3 I would have lost; Romero (free), TFM (free), Jones (£15m), Rojo (£6.5m), Matic (free), Mata (£6m) and a few fringe players. Sanchez, Smalling and Bailly have all been out on loan for 2 seasons as I can’t get any permanent offers for them, hopefully that will change this summer as I’ve got very low asking prices for them again and Smalling just won Serie A with AC Milan (may try p/ex for Kessie who has requested to leave). In terms of transfers in, I’ve tried to make long-term signings for the future; Chiesa (£51m - Scouts said Berna was injury prone), Todibo (£65m), Chilwell (£60m), Ake (£40m), Berge (£25m), Fernandes (£40m), Guimaraes (£15m), Haaland (£30m) Pogba is currently refusing to sign a new deal due to long term interest from Barcelona. PSG made a £86m bid which I rejected and he isn’t bothered, but there’s only 12months left on his deal and I want to get £100m or keep him, so it may end in tears. So in terms of depth the squad looks decent: GK - DDG, Henderson, Pereira RB - AWB, Dalot CB - Lindelof, Maguire, Todibo, Ake, Tuanzebe LB - Shaw, Chilwell, Williams CM - Pogba, Fernandes, Berge, Guimaraes, McTominay, Pereira RW - Chiesa, Lingard LW - Rashford, Martial, James ST - Greenwood, Haaland Typically play a 4-2-4, which has seen us ship a few goals but the individual performances of Greenwood (~25 goals), Haaland (~25 goals), Rashford (~40 goals) carried us this season. Aiming for a net transfer profit this season as I’ve done my deals early and bought 3 South American talents (including Almada) for about £16.5m and providing nobody I want to keep leaves, I probably won’t make any more signings (save for cheap wonder kids, and a potential marquee signing) and hope to ship out a lot of deadwood (or at least use the Sanchez new deal tip to reduce his wages - but he just got 15 goals on loan at Norwich so hopefully someone will take a punt on him). On the marquee signing point, Liverpool bought Dybala who carried them to a double this season and Chelsea have (despite being an EL team) unsettled Mbappe so I may have to swoop in to try and steal him. Expecting some younger players such as Chong, Garner, Gomes to move on this summer as they haven’t performed/developed well on loan and I want to maximise playing time for youth players who will make it into my first team. The youth intake has had some really good talents both seasons. In terms of managing the club as a whole, I took Luis Campos from Lille as DoF when I took over and then left the staff alone (bar filling the odd vacancy) until end of season 2. I wanted to improve the scouting team so had to mutually terminate a lot of scouts (I had 42 with an allowance of 16 and the board wouldn’t increase at all!) but some were very mediocre. Have paid over the odds to get some really good ones in but my knowledge and network has taken a battering for the short term. Paid £750k in compensation to take a 71 year old scout from Sporting CP who announced his retirement in 2 weeks time the day after he joined. Once the final scouts are in place, I will start on the coaches. I love having ex-players about (Nicky Butt, Patrice Evra) but I don’t think they have enough impact compared to quality stats so will probably see them be replaced this summer or throughout the season. Nick Cox will also go as he has been dishing out contracts to players that need to be shipped out. Stadium expansion completes this summer and facilities are all state of the art so expect a solid season of blooding some youth players and increased revenues to come! Will upload some screenshots next time I play.
