  1. What used to happen on previous FMs is that once Serbia became an EU member, European players would stop being foreign only once the following season starts (or when the game resets for the following league season). So, given that you are only in June, it might mean that he will lose his 'foreign' status closer to the league start date.
  2. It should be top 6 national champions (champions of the highest 6 national leagues) and the CL and EL winners. If Benfica won both the CL and the Portuguese League, then the 7th highest national league champion should be in. Having 3 teams from Spain does not make sense, unless Real won the Champions League and Atletico won the Europa League.
  3. I cross my legs the other way to how they were crossed at the time of the goal, and, if they weren't crossed to begin with, I cross them!
  4. Can you clarify what you mean by "B game"? I'm not sure I understand what that is, but maybe that's just me
  5. If you buy a digital version of the game (from Steam, for example) you won't need a CD, so you shouldn't have a problem
  6. The difference is likely to be in their JCA and JPA attributes, but in terms of a 'solution', I don't think there is supposed to be one. Even if they had the same attributes, they will still rate the same player slightly differently, and, at times, rate a player very differently. This is as intended since no one can know with certainty how good a player is, and it is very subjective after all. You will probably have your own opinion based on the player's attributes and/or performances, and it may again be different to what the scouts or the Am thinks. Just immerse yourself into the world of football management and you'll begin to enjoy the imaginary arguments you have with your staff about all sorts of things you all disagree on
  7. I feel like I almost always get the job I'm interviewing for, even when I'm the one who applied and my reputation is lower than the club's (of course, if my reputation is very low, I won't get an interview). So anyway, once I get an interview, I promise I'll overachieve, and work with a slightly lower wage or transfer budget. I also ask to be judged on a philosophy that I know they value. Besides that, I say things like: I don't think it's an unreasonable number of clubs I'm talking to I am fairly adept at learning languages I'm happy to work with the DoF I rarely don't get an offer
  8. Disappointing to hear, but thanks for the reply. I look forward to seeing it in the future!
  9. Neil, as my internet is prehistoric and my BETA is still downloading (and will be, for quite some time) can you please let me know if the world coach of the year award has been included in the game? You may recall a discussion we had in an earlier thread about why it was missing in FM18.
  10. Hi Neil, any chance you know if this has been rectified for FM19? The new features have me itching to play and this would be the icing on the cake!
  11. No, I'm a coach in real life, have been for 7 years (not full time, mind you). Finally made it to a level high enough to be included
  12. I actually made it into the winter update of FM18 haha Greatest achievement ever! I've always said that I would keep playing FM until I'm actually in the game as a coach, but I don't think I'll keep my word, FM is too good!!!
  13. The first team is very much equal to many of Europe's best, and maybe it's my tactics which stop me from progressing further. I have found that the quality of newgens I get has been exceptional right from the start. Not sure it really improves to be honest. Partizan has a very high level of newgens to begin with, and as my first team gets stronger, I find that I am able to integrate less of the youngsters in because only one or two players per intake could potentially make the first team (which is still huge). At the start of the game, I think I could take at least 7 or 8 U18 players and turn them into first team players within a season or two, because the first team isn't too strong.
  14. I've done very well with Partizan over the years, won the Europa League and regularly playing quarter finals of the Champions League (I'm actually playing Barcelona next week, fingers crossed :P) However, I've never gone further in the Champions League and I feel like in every version of the game I reach a plateau that I cannot overcome. Youth products are essential. With Partizan, right from the get go, I focus all my energy into developing players because I feel I can easily win (or at least challenge) for the league title with youngsters and the rewards in a couple of years are huge. I focus a lot on making the players happy and giving them long contracts so that I can keep most of my youngsters who become absolute class. The issue becomes that even though I do well in Europe, have tonnes of money and am able to sign a lot of quality players, the league never quite keeps up and so I play in a useless league which I can win with my third team and it doesn't quite allow me to go that one step further and actually become of of the best in Europe :/
