  1. Source for that: https://news.sportbox.ru/Vidy_sporta/Futbol/Russia/1st_division/spbnews_NI1045105_Pravilo_limitchika_v_FNL_Chto_ob_etom_nuzhno_znat Since this season, a player born in 1998 or later must be on the field in the FNL teams.
  2. Regarding Chertanovo: I have just loaded a game with them and it prevents you from signing any players. This is not true in real life. Chertanovo can sign players, but only if they were trained at the club. So for example this summer they signed Ilya Abaev on a free transfer, Nikolay Prudnikov on loan from Zenit-2, Yuri Zavezen on a free from Rotor, Ilya Kamyshev on a free from Zenit-2 and Egor Rudkovskiy on a free from Spartak-2 - all of these have been at the Chertanovo academy in the past. Similarly, the players Alexandr Zuev (Rubin on loan from Rostov), Maxim Glushenkov and Nail Umyarov (both Spartak) do not count as home grown (club status) when searching the transfer market, but all three should be as they spent their childhood with Chertanovo. This should also apply to Maxim Mairovich, Denis Yakuba, Anton Zinkovskiy, Danila Proshlyakov, Ivan Lapshov, Egor Nikulin, Artem Timofeev, Dmitriy Zavarukhin, Artem Selyukov, Roman Kosyanchuk and many more. In theory, anyone who has ever played for Chertanovo in the past at any stage should be eligible to be signed for them, as Chertanovo's policy is such that all of their previous players would have been academy players at one point in their childhood, otherwise they would not have had them.
  3. Abaev began his career in the Chertanovo academy which is why he joined them again this summer after spending his whole career elsewhere. Same with Rodionov who left the academy in 2010 but came back in 2015. Likewise this season they have Prudnikov on loan from Zenit-2 but he is initially from the Chertanovo academy so it is allowed. If they were ever promoted I guess they would try to bring back Alexandr Zuev too. Chertanovo abide by only using players from the academy - I have been told by someone else that this is forced in game too which is great!
  4. I’ve been unable to check yet but do Chertanovo have rules which allow them to only use players from their academy built in (like Bilbao and Basque players)? Just asking now in case I forget to check again myself.
  5. Happy to help. As long as it’s at least closer to reality that will be a good thing, so the 5 subs would be good.
  6. I wasn't actually aware of that but having dug through the rules that is correct. "During the Match, the maximum number of substitutions for each team is 4 players from the number started in the lineup. If one Russian Youth Player is replaced with another Russian Youth Player the Club receives the right to only one additional (fifth) substitution." Other exceptions to the "Russian Youth Player" rules: During each Match each club must use one Russian Youth Player, with the exception of the following specified conditions: - the Russian Youth Player is injured during the match and the number of substitutions is exhausted; - The Russian Youth Player being sent off If two or more Russian Youth Players participate in the match as part of one Club, the following are exceptions: - two or more Russian Youth Players getting injured during the Match - Russian Youth Players being sent off. - "Substitution of Young players, with the first substitution of a Young player allowed no earlier than after the first half" The list of rules (in Russian) is here: https://1fnl.ru/upload/s4y_docs/60/Link/Reglament_Olimp-Pervenstva_FNL-2019-2020_1.pdf These rules in particular come from pages 31/32.
  7. Well there is the limitchik rule where one U21 player has to be on the pitch at all times. But there are cases when this doesn't apply. If the limitchik player is sent off, the team which that player belongs to is not obliged to introduce another (if there is not another remaining on the pitch) and may finish the game with 10 men aged over 21. If a team is unable to field a limitchik player, they will have to start a match with 10 men. If two limitchiks start and play the first 45 minutes, both may be replaced with non-limitchik players for the remainder of the game. It's a very intricate rule system. Though I have only seen the first of these three actually occur so far in real life. I have also not seen any team on FM20 in the FNL use 5 substitutes - this is a new rule for the 19/20 season. I don't know for definite if this has not been applied in FM20 but if not it needs to be. In real life this season, the 5 subs rule is being used heavily by most FNL clubs.
  8. A shame the news about Armenia, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan is not official yet. A lot of the issues above I assume happened after the data lock, they seem like recent changes. Had a look through the FNL and PFL clubs and thought some players were a little underrated. Guys like Egor Kortsov and Alexandr Bem of Leningradets and Tyumen often play for Russian youth teams but seem to have low potential and low attributes. Kortsov was Russia’s best player at the COTIF tournament (where Diveev was discovered last summer). Kamran Aliev from Khimki also looked underrated a little. I could list many more I’m sure but will reserve judgment until I have used the editor to properly look at PA of players. Have always wanted to volunteer with Russian data for FM but never has there been any vacancies!
  9. Stadium atmosphere on the whole was pretty good. Russians were loving it and the worst part was Mexican waves.
  10. Mate, the atmosphere was incredible. Russia over performing made this World Cup even better than it was due to be. The all night street parties in Moscow after they knocked Spain out were some of the craziest scenes I’ve ever witnessed. One of the top Russian politicians said Russia had not experienced moments like it since the end of the Second World War. Add in the Mexicans, the Peruvians, Iranians, Colombians, Australians, Argentinians, Brazilians...the only let down were the fans from European countries. I think maybe the Swedish and Serbians were the best but even they were less than 10-15k.
  11. These two Colombian girls in front of me were singing and dancing all game (literally) and were getting a lot of photo requests from the locals. This was at Poland 0-3 Colombia.
  12. I was was there and by god I was almost dead by the end. Amazing.
  13. I’m in Kazan and going to the match. The Iran fans in Kazan outnumber the Spanish 10 to 1 easily. So many of them out here so the atmosphere tonight should be great. Hoping it’ll top the Aussies whose atmosphere vs France was also brilliant.
  14. The midfielders are the only real positive. Dzageov, Golovin, Kuzyaev, Zobnin, Miranchuk x2 are all great players. Erokhin is also a solid player, and while Gazinskiy seems to divide opinion, I'm a big fan of him. I'd probably pick this. Akinfeev; Smolnikov, Mario Fernandes, Ignashevich, Granat, Kudryashov; Dzagoev, Zobnin, Golovin; Alexey Miranchuk; Smolov (5-3-1-1)
  15. Russia named their final squad. Cherchesov bottled it. Dropped Rausch, the best LB in the squad, Neustadter, the best CB in the squad, and also left out the two uncapped wildcards Chalov (20) and Tashaev (23). Gabulov got in cause he's mates with Cherchesov. Moved to Belgium in Jan and played 4 games and was dropped, but got in ahead of two other goalkeepers who had amazing seasons (Guilherme and Dzhanaev). Zhirkov is past it but looks like he'll be the starting LWB or even winger which is embarrassing.
