    Declaring an interest in other clubs

    I don't recall to be honest. I would be both surprised and impressed if this was the reason Zenit did not approach me. Btw.. This issue relates to a wider issue I raised about the lack of opportunities for you to move clubs within the game. I'm now ranked #1 in the World yet no club has headhunted me.
  2. Having just discovered that you can declare an interest in managing other clubs; I decided to try this out. I'm currently managing Nottm Forest. The Board are very happy with me - the overall rating in the Board Confidence screen is green and is two thirds full. I declared an interest in managing Olympique Marseille. I received a new item to say "Shocked Nottm Forest supporters appear angry at his lack of loyalty to the club". I then received a subsequent news item from the Board to say "...remind you that your responsibilities lie with Nottm Forest and hope that you are committed to staying at the club." I was expecting to be in a lot of more trouble and for my actions to have bigger consequences. For example, my Board Confidence ratings are still in the greens and not one of my players is unhappy with me for declaring an interest in managing another club. Does the outcome vary depending on your status and how you are viewed by your Board? I would still expect there to be a significant impact on player morale (unless of course you are a terrible manager).

    Ungrateful Board

    One league game into the new Chinese Super League season and I receive this update from my board. Despite having this start to the season. Not the victories in the Chinese Super Cup and Asian Champions League. The Board Confidence screen looks like this. Not only is it completely unfair, they seemed to have forgotten that last season I won the Chinese Super League by 17 points, the Asian Champions League, The World Club Cup (beating Man City in the semifinal) and the Chinese FA Cup and the Chinese Super Cup. This is my last save before the Board message appeared. pre-board message.zip

    Ungrateful Board

    Thanks for trying to reproduce this for me. I did copy a save after the board message which might be helpful. post-board message.zip

    Declaring an interest in other clubs

    I don't have another save but Lopetgui got the job in my game too. That still made me wonder why he would be chosen ahead of me given our respective rankings and reputations.
  6. I just had a transfer cancelled due to a failed medical. When I looked at the players eligibility screen, it tells me he has a sprained ankle and will be out for three weeks. This seems a bit OTT. Shouldn't cancelled transfers for failed medicals be for serious injuries?

    Declaring an interest in other clubs

    I don't understand why I've not been approached by Zenit to take over them. Their manager was listed as very insecure in the job vacancy screen. I declared an interest in taking over but Zenit eventually appoint a continental rated manager who is ranked 36th in the world. I'm rated world class and ranked 2nd in the world. Why was I not approached? Surely Zenit would have been tripping over themselve to get me.
  8. I won the Chinese Super League and the Chinese FA Cup. On both occasions I didn't receive the standard board congratulatory message nor the fans sing managers name message. Also, after winning the Chinese FA Cup, I achieved the loan restrictions unlockable. However, when I clicked OK to close the pop up message, the game paused for a short while and then it didn't give me the opportunity to decide whether I wanted to remove loan restrictions or not (I don't want to and I'm not sure if they have been removed).

    Chinese Super League bugs

    In season 2019/20, the Asian Champions League Final 2nd Leg is scheduled at the same time as a host of international tournaments and qualifying rounds are taking place. I'm due to play the 2nd leg but nine players will be missing from my first team sqaud.
  10. I think it would be interesting if there were addition objectives set by the Board depending on the clubs circumstances. For example, if you're managing a modest sized club with a low to average transfer budget, and it has recently upgraded its youth facilities to 'Top', then the Board might say that rather than giving you X amount in transfers, the requirement is for you to develop players from the youth academy. You will be judged not only on performances and finances, but how many of the club's youth players are being selected. Another objective could be to play football in certain style. This might be more difficult to judge but we've seen managers get the sack for not playing the "United way" or the "West Ham way", so you could be judged on the number of goals scored and attacking other stats such as number of shots on goal.

    Game depth

    This for me is the challenge going forward. Whenever I get to around the 10 season mark, the game does start to feel static. I think this is mainly due to the AIs inability to effectively manage their sqauds.

    Transfer cancelled due to failed medical

    Hi Luke, I'm pretty sure it was a partial injury 👍

    Transfer cancelled due to failed medical

    This is the mobile thread so yes, the game is completely different to the PC version.
  14. Praising players seems to be the only way to boost morale. Even though your team is losing, are any of your players playing well i.e. getting 7/10+
  15. 75 goals per season! That is ridiculous.

    Chinese Super League bugs

    Hi Sebastian, can I just clarify whether the Chinese Super League in FMM19 is supposed to be enforcing the foreign player policy of no more than 3 foreign players in a match day team?

    Chinese Super League bugs

    Thanks for the advice. A further update on the Board expectations / transfer budget message. I finally received this message on 16 February. My Board expects the club to mount a serious challenge for the league title and has given me £184M to do this. This is great but it comes 10 days before the transfer window shuts. I feel like I'm playing the part of Montgomery Brewster from the movie 'Brewster's Millions where I have 10 days to spend £184M! The other annoying thing about this is that the new season started at the end of December and I've been conducting almost two months of transfer activity based on what I had left-over from the previous season's transfer budget. All the players I have signed for the new season are nothing compared to who I could have signed with £184M! The Board message/new transfer budget needs to happen at the beginning of the new season, just like it does in all the other seasons.

    Transfer cancelled due to failed medical

    How do I access the medical report? His Eligibility page says sprained ankle and out for three weeks. The Scout Report page says no major concerns to report and his Personal page says determined to overcome his injury, which seems extreme for a sprained ankle.

    Chinese Super League bugs

    Another Chinese Super League bug. I just started a new season and after playing the game for almost two months into my second season, I haven't received the board expectations message along with my new transfer budget. My save below is at the point where I'm about to play the 2nd leg of the Chinese FA Cup. If you play from here (and win the 2nd leg), you will encounter the following issues: No congratulatory message from Board or fans No Board expectation message with transfer budget options when commencing the New Season.

  20. I'm managing in the Chinese Super League for the first time and can't wait to spend my incredible transfer budget. But I know I'm not in working the most prestigious league so have to be realistic about the type of players I can attract to play for me. So I go to the Player Search feature and select the 'Interested Only' filter. The list of players that come up as a result are pretty decent. However, when I scout them all, the scout reports tell me their interest is Dubious. When my offer is accepted and I enter contract negotiations, I'm told that "moving to China wouldn't be good for my career". So the Interested Only filter doesn't seem to be working.

    Interested only

    Yes running the latest version. Not sure why you aren't experiencing what I am. As you can see from the screenshots, the scout report conflicts with the contract negotiation screen. Also just to explain that this particular issue was in addition to the main issue I raised which was about the number of players that come up as being interested from the player search screen but are not actually interested when your bid is accepted and you try to offer a contract. The issue with Sirigu may have come from a scout assignment rather than a filtered player search result. I can't quite remember.
  22. You should post this in the bugs forum 👍
  23. Lillywhite Dean

    Interested only

    And just to give a further example. This GK is interested. Go to contract negotiations and he now says he isn't interested in taking a backwards step in his career.

    Interested only

    Sorry for the delay in responding to this. Here is a save which should highlight the problem I'm having. I'm basically just trying to sign any player that comes up in the player search screen. I make sure the interested filter is switched on and most of the players I attempt to sign are from the European leagues. China_Player_Interest.zip
  25. I just knocked out Tottenham in the FA Cup 5th round by thrashing them 5-1. Immediately after exiting the post-match screen, the "MASTERMINDS GIANT KILLING" news story flashed up on screen. I don't understand why because I have been playing Tottenham regularly for the past three seasons. I'm currently in 3rd place and Totttenham are 9th. Has the game not increased mine or the clubs reputation level after playing in the Premier League for three seasons?
