  1. I tried searching this thread but got no results. I was wondering if it's possible to postpone retirements in FM19? I tried to do that with the official editor, but couldn't find any option related to the player's impending retirement.
  2. Those are some impressive numbers! But they start around 2030, by which time at least in FM19 teams mostly consist of newgens. Between 2022-2028 your top scorers got 17-25 goals and mostly about 20 or less. Looking at real numbers starting from 2009/10 to 2018/19 the top scorers had 20-32 goals (20 once, 22 once and then lowest is 25, source: https://www.premierleague.com/news/1206108).
  3. I haven't bought FM20 at least yet and am still playing 19. Before that the last version I had was FM14. One of the things that really annoys me in 19 is the fact that compared to real life scoring is off. From what I've read about 20 it's the same as 19. So I was wondering which FM (ME) was the closest to real life numbers in terms of scoring? I'd really like to see the top scorers scoring over 20 (league) goals per season consistently and occasionally top scorers getting over 30. Not to mention the absolute best getting really impressive numbers. Obviously it's been a while since I played FM before 19, but my memories indicate that way back then scoring was closer to real life numbers.
  4. Very disappointing that the problem seems to persist. It's definitely not game-breaking, but at least to me hurts immersion badly.
  5. Has anyone finished a full season yet? I was wondering what amount of goals the top goalscorers finish with in the new version. One thing that annoys me in FM 19 is that usually the top scorers seem to finish with only ~18-22 league goals.
  6. I've played through five seasons managing Juventus, and during the summer after the fifth season noticed that suddenly Napoli had transfer listed and/or listed for loan pretty much it's full first team. Ok, that's weird, I thought. Napoli's information tab stated that their financial status was insecure, and indeed it is: through the editor I saw that their balance was about -190m euros (IIRC)! They had just purchased three players, all of whom I think they had already on loan. I'm not sure if they had mandatory or voluntary buy options for the loanees, but for Depay alone they paid a whopping 90m euros. So that's already a very stupid move by the AI to spend well over its means, but so far it has really failed in its attempt to fix the situation. Wouldn't the wisest course of action be to sell enough players to cover the deficit and to get rid of their wages? Surely one wouldn't (and shouldn't!) get the best possible prices for the players being sold, but still, to me that seems like the best option. Instead the AI has so far sold one player, and the other moves have been to loan first team players out. Ok, that at least gets their wages off the books, right? No. The loan deals Napoli has done have left them with the obligation to cover about 90% (!!) of the loanees' wages! So the AI isn't helping it's dire financial situation at all and instead is just destroying it's squad completely for no gain. Gonna be interesting to see what remains of the squad once the season starts and what their final position will be.
  7. Have your news after the completion of the course ever actually said that it was useful or impactful? After multiple seasons and surely well over ten courses for many different players the only feedback after completion that I've seen has been "gained little from it" or something like that, and no visible increase of the leadership attribute.
  8. I'm very inclined to believe this too, as the assistant manager that I started with offered quite a lot of advice but after some seasons got poached by another club and when choosing the replacement I didn't pay much attention to his tactical knowledge. Now the new one offers far less input.
  9. The poll is a bit confusing as basically the question is do you do a or b and then the options are simply yes and no
  10. Wasn't there speculation in real life this season that Chicago wanted to bring in Maxim Shalunov already this Spring but wasn't able to as his current KHL team refused to release him from his contract which is set to expire at the end of April?
  11. Awesome, I haven't downloaded the latest rosters yet.
  12. Even though the logic behind giving awards seems weird at times it would be nice to have awards in the World Juniors.
  13. Do correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure that what I described in the title shouldn't be possible. I had drafted a Russian player who was playing the KHL with a three (IIRC) year contract, and offered him an NHL contract in January to ensure that he would join me after his Russian contract expires. To my surprise he joined my team in the middle of the season after accepting my offer, abandoning his KHL team.
