  1. After becoming twice champion of China and Asia I resigned as a 3.5 star coach. The first week applying for jobs was awesome: I got 5 job offers (yes, job offers, not interview offers) from different divisions and countries in Europe. I declined them because salary was small, or I wasn't excited about the club. Then something really strange happened: I attended 50+ interviews in the following 4 months, all unsuccessful. (In some cases, these were much smaller clubs in China in a lower division). In most cases, these clubs were below 3.5 stars. (I also believe to have been interviewed for the same club twice in a few cases during this unemployed spell.)

    I'm about to quit this save, because this doesn't look normal. Maybe a glitch?  Suggestions please.

    MJ has dismissed the lagging as something only a few users have experienced and the moderators have stated that out of "around a hundred machines in-house" only TWO showed signs of lagging !  It's BS !! 

    2 machines out of a 100 means 2% error. In the world of tech, that's inadmissible!

    Yet, I noticed that jaggedness slightly improved in my laptop. Still ways to go though... Not stable like FM19.... 

  3. I can't load Views (of Player profiles in Transfer or Squad windows) that I created and saved to the cloud. When I try to import them from the cloud (views folder), the Load button is inactive (greyed out). Please fix the button for loading, thanks.

  4. After religiously pre-purchasing FM for over 15 years in a row, I'm now wavering about purchasing FM20 now or later. It looks marginally better to me. Most YouTube reviews I've seen thus far are from highly biased fanatics spending hours praising every minor feature tweak...

    Any objective reviews (video or written) about FM20 that you can share the link please.  TIA.



  5. Cristiano Ronaldo is now 38 playing as a striker for another club. His contract is expiring and I wish to bring him to play in my club (Sporting).

    However, the contract negotiation interface is set for staff, not player. (I notice that, likewise, many aging superstars with expiring contracts have their new contract negotiation also set for a staff position)

    Is there a way to switch the contract offer to player? I can't locate where. It seems that once an old player wants to become staff, there is no way to change his mind?...

  6. Global Warming Crisis. :-)

    I wonder what's the impact of rain in the game. Many years ago, I read somewhere that more direct passing and direct shots were recommended during rain. However, I never felt that this makes any difference.

    Bottom line is - does weather really have any impact on player performance?...

  7. I agree it would be nice to have a menu of options readily available. But be careful - asking for a new stadium just because you are to full capacity may not be a good financial decision. Check major revenue sources (probably players sold and TV revenue). New stadiums are expensive and may not justify incremental revenue with gate receipts. All that's in the Finances/Income page.

  8. Good question. Maybe open a survey for more quantitative answers?

    I like to start at very bottom leagues, so your first scenario (top leagues of more countries) doesn't excite me much. On the other hand, FM runs incredibly slow (regardless of computer power, mine is super new!), so I end up picking many leagues from many countries, and keep removing leagues as my save progresses.

    My biggest ask for FM20 (and future) would be to make the game run faster!!!

  9. I've been playing for 20 odd years. It seems that every 4 to 5 years there is some technological breakthrough that requires some sharp relearning. The last (not so) "big" one was the new training system with daily sessions in FM18 which threw me off for a while.

    Other than that, I learn in bouts: I just like playing FM without overthinking. Then, I may get curious about studying some manuals or videos to increase expertise.

    Overall, I think FM can be played at a basic level without much time investment, but maybe I've become just too involved already...
