    [Scotland] (Official) League Specific Issues

    Quoting this in case it has been missed. League Cup fixtures clashing with international matches.
  2. Game has frozen during a tunnel interview. I can still move mouse cursor and highlight the options but clicking does nothing. Also the option to send assistant is still lit up but when pressed nothing happens.

    [Scotland] Data Issues

    Celtics finances are wrong. Currently showing as a lowly £22m December 2017 they had £30.9m recorded in bank http://www.celticfc.net/news/13937 Since that time the sale of Virgil Van Dijk to liverpool gave Celtic £7.5m, £7m from the sale of Stuart Armstrong to Southampton and just under £20m from the sale of Dembele to Lyon. Take into consideration the signing of Edouard then the Celtics bank balance should be at least £50m but perhaps more as Champions league money I assume would have been added after that tournament finished? And also playing in Europa league after those December 2017 figures were published.
  4. So happy to see this! I always thought violent stuff like that wasnt in the game

    Low attendence

    Try sigming high reputation players if you can afford it. They will generally boost your attendances. Champions league if you can make it can boost your reputation which in turn will increasee attendance.

    Thought about an external USB dvd drive? That's if you have or can find a hard copy.

    FM17 My First ever worldwide Journeyman game

    July 30th 2017 Away to 10th placed Skoftebyns IF, only 6 points ahead of me. So would love to get a victory to half that gap. I keep faith with the team that won last week with the exception of Thongsomboom returning after his suspension, his time at the club can only get better surely! We were the better team and the better team won. Can scoring a brace, his first just after the minute mark. delighted with the win! We move upto 11th in the league and now only 3 points from 10th! for the first time since I took over we are above the relegation and playoff battle. Still a way to go though so we wont get too far ahead of ourselves. League at the end of July

    July 17th 2017 I brought in left winger Tobias Johansson on loan from Eskilstuna City FK for the rest of the season. July 23rd 2017 A must win game against bottom placed Kortedala IF, they have the same points as us so a lose will put us at the foot of the table. We are at home so that gives us the edge in what I'm sure will be a close game. I opt for a change in striker as Hesselheim has done nothing since the first game so top goal scored with an amazing (insert sarcasm here) 3 goals in 13 starts and 3 sub appearances Zana Can gets his first start for me. Tobias Johansson comes straight into the team as well. Stats dont lie they say but these ones do! Our goalkeeper Jakob Kindberg kept us in this match with 4 very good saves. On any other day that would of been a defeat. Saying that I was impressed with our patient build up play at times. I counted 17 passes before one miserable shot on goal from us that really deserved a better finish. new loan signing Tobias Johansson played well and made the assist with a nice cross for Mikael Loön to score his first goal for the club. Albin Ek popped up at teh edge of the box to get his 2nd goal in 2 games. 3 points is 3 points and I am delighted with them! League wise we were let down by IFK Uddevalla again as they won as well. Vanersborgs didnt however so we move up to 12th again and one point behind IFK Uddevalla. With 4 games gone since I took charge the team has managed to score 8 goals which was the amount the previous manager managed in 13 games, add the 2 wins into the mix and I would say were in a better position then when I took over.

    July 15th 2017 The transfer window opens and I had previously agreed terms with versatile Fredrik Landén. Will be used in the DM role but can play DC, CM and RB. He might get pushed onto the bench if I can find a dedicated DM but its not the easiest club to sign players for. July 16th 2017 Were away from home to 3rd place Karlstad BK. They have managed to score in every game so far this season so confidence in a victory is slim. The addition of Fredrik Landén to the team will help as we will now have someone that is 100% familiar with that position. If new signing Thongsomboom was poor in his first match he was truly awful today after being sent off in the 50th minute for a 2nd yellow card. Karlstad took an early lead but we were playing okay and at half time I encouraged the players hoping we could get a goal but the red card blew the game for us. 7 minutes later they were 2-0 up and we could only manage a consolation goal in stoppage time. IFK Uddevalla managed a draw against league leaders Skövde AIK so we drop to 13th place. But 2 points away from 11th, so I still remain hopeful.

    July 6th 2017 I sign my first player on a free. 22 year old right back Don Thongsomboom. A youth player from BK Häcken but failed to make a single appearance, had been without a club for over a year. He is nothing special but at least I now have a usable right back. I had expected to get him during the transfer window but ended up with him now, I wont complain about that though! July 9th 2017 My first home game in charge of the club sees us up against Lidköpings FK who are currently sitting 2 spots above me in 10th. Having drawn their last 2 games against higher up teams I expect this to be a slightly tougher game. Made tougher by 2 key suspensions in Central defender Marcus Arnold and my covering DM Håkan Sjölinder. Transfer listed Igor Coric comes into the DM role for this game. I am tempted to change to a default 4-4-2 but stick with the 4-3-3 as I really want us to push on and score goals. A lot less goal action in this game compared to last. Took 30 minutes before anything worthwhile even happened. on the 50th minute Lidköpings FK took the lead with a cracking half volley just outside the box. We didnt look like much of a threat going forward at all although on the 88th minute we should of equalized when substitute striker Zana Can was one on one with the keeper but found the post instead of the neat. Don Thongsomboom made his debut for the club and failed to impress. After that we remain in 12th place in the league.

    July 2nd 2016 Vanersborgs are 4 points above us in the league but have lost their last four games, so I am confident going into this one. Well that was a surprise scoring 5 goals! We looked shaky as hell in defense but that is to be expected when I went as attacking as I could. I went for a 4-3-3 formation and played MC Håkan Sjölinder in the DM position. 21 year old striker Pontus Hesselheim scoring his first goals with the club getting a brace. Overall delighted with the result and it moves us up one position to 12th.

    IFK KUMLA (founded in 1913) Semi-Profesional Swedish Division 2 Norra Götaland The League Structure is complicated to say the least so with the help of wikipedia! The Swedish football league system is a series of interconnected leagues for club football in Sweden which is controlled by the Swedish Football Association and consists of 288 teams in 22 leagues divided into five levels. Below those five levels, additional regional levels numbered six to ten exist but these lower leagues are controlled by the regional associations and not by the nationwide association. There is, however, promotion and relegation to and from all levels. As of 2013, there were a total of 2510 teams in the Swedish league system of which 299 of them were reserve teams. IFK Kumla are in the 4th level which has 1 automatic promotion and relegation and 1 playoff spot for promotion and relegation. We are already half way through the season here and so far it has not been good for the club and they are without a win in 13 games and we find ourselves 2nd bottom. The only good news is that they have drawn half their games which hopefully means it wont be too hard to turn them around. Its lack of goals that are the problem with only 8 scored compared to 18 conceded. The conceded number puts us bang in the middle of the table. So more goals will mean some wins I hope and I have 13 games to do it. After meeting the assistant is abundantly clear the squad has problems but at this level I am not surprised. But there is good news and that is there are a few good young prospects. The most notable negative is lack of leadership on the pitch that is something I will have to deal with in 20 days when the transfer window opens. Will look to play an attacking 4-4-2 right now as I dont have a DM for my favored 4-3-3, not that these players will be any good at anything like that but I will try
  14. My first ever Journeyman game. Please post with suggestions or anything you are wanting to see, my first time posting in here All leagues loaded on a small database. Manager with no coaching badges and only Sunday league experience. Started Unemployed on June 4th 2016. Worcester City and Dundela both offer me a job on the 10th but I rejected them as I wanted to stay away from the UK for now at least. By June 27th I have applied for every job going but with no interest until Swedish Club IFK Kumla I accepted the offer!
  15. Im guessing the players are on your development list and your HOYD is in charge of your under 18's. Are the players in question featuring in your first team? If so then that is likely the reason your member of staff is rejecting the offers.
