  1. That is not what I mean. I am talking about this:

    I want a fast scouting button next to each player here. So if I press that button, a scout from my scouting pool will be assigned to that player for the amount of time that I have decided should be default. (Based on the scouting options we have.)

    If I want to scout one of this players as it is now I have to right click on the player, select "Scouting", select "Assign Scout", select "scouting pool" click on "report card", "1 week", "2 weeks" and so on, and I have to do this for every player that I want to scout. In these screens there are no multi select so I can't select the players I want and then right click. I have to do the same process for each player. For each player that takes me about 3-4 seconds to do. To press a button takes me 1 second. when you scout several thousand players in each version of FM it will save you a great deal of time and hassle if you just had a button.

    Agreed too. The lack of some buttons is really annoying. Another examples - when there's a list of 'these players were removed from shortlist" why oh why can't we select multiple at once? Having to right click every single one and rescout/readd is a huge time killer.

    Transfer centre - why isn't there an option to auto reject all dumb offers that AI love to spam us with? When I offer my player on loan with defined parametres (100% wage / first team) why do I have to wade through 40 ridiculous offers to find 3-4 acceptable ones?


  2. I can't arrange testimonials for my regens. The option is always greyed out and I only ever could arrange them for real players once they hit 10 year mark at the club. Now I have a lot of regens who have been at the club for 10+ years and none of them can have their testimonials.


  3. This is constantly happening to me. I posted this in the feedback thread but ofc people found 500 ways to defend the game.

    Quite often I get a message in my inbox that someone from my shortlist is wanted by another team. They bid for example 10m + 5 in addons. I want to hijack the deal and offer 15 straightaway (or even 17) which is a much better deal for the selling team. However they would negotiate and demand 25+10.


  4. Not too impressed personally.

    I checked with Genie Scout and found out that in 2028 I only have 5 goalkeepers in the world with PA >170. So in 13 years of youth intake in more than 20 leagues game only generated 5 keepers with good potential, seems extremely low.

    What's even worse that with AI's ability to develop players none of those actually reached their ceiling;

    PA 180 CA 166 - 14 points difference

    PA 179 CA 145 - 34 points difference

    PA 177 CA 127 - 50 points difference

    PA 177 CA 150 - 27 points difference

    PA 172 CA 130 - 42 points difference

    I pretty much already decided that I am not going to be buying FM17 because of this. I am in 2027 and

    - tons of players who are not developed properly and don't reach their potential

    - teams having 1-2 goalkeepers across all squads (must be a bug) thus having to play grey generated ones

    - top teams relying on 35 years olds

    - teams appointing terrible managers

    - because of all this every season league tables look very different. One year West Ham are 3rd the season after they are 17th etc. And if a below average team (media prediction 14th) manages to finish in a good position (5th) then next season returns to where it belongs (12th) they usually sack their manager and appoint someone with stats below 10 across the board.

  6. I've been trying to sell my £20M rated player for 2 seasons now but the best offer I've had was 3M. Just now I got offered 9M from 2 clubs but both were auto-rejected by something.

    First of all I am pretty sure I didn't set any instructions and didn't mark the 'reject all offers' button.

    Even if I did 2 years ago, how do I reset it now? The only logical thing is player profile > transfer status > when a transfer offer is received... but it's greyed out for all of my players saying "a staff member will respond".

    I am not under any embargos, DOF orders or anything else.

  8. You are being really obtuse here forameuss which seems unusual for you :(

    Where did I say that the guys come into £800m?

    I'll try to spell it out a bit clearer:

    A) A different scout feels that Barcelona don't want to sell the player and has therefore said "Cannot afford". He would therefore have a different opinion to the scout report shown which may be down to his attributes or it may be a bug.

    B) If the scout report is one or two months out of date the player may have signed a new contract, had a birthday and had his situation reviewed by Barcelona leading to it changing from the scout report.

    On the other hand it might just be a bug but we don't have enough information to judge that atm. FG asked for an explanation and if he provides the extra information we might be able to explain it.

    Both A and B never lead to scouts saying "we cannot afford this player" (at least in clubs with virtually unlimited funds). If the club doesn't want to sell then it's noted in the cons. There's a striker at Man City who they don't let go even for 150m - but scout reports never said I couldn't afford him.

    Anyway I think my issue is with FFP, I am pretty much on the edge. If this is the case then it would be nice if scout reports actually said that instead of the vague 'can't afford'.
