    Brexit questions

    What you can do is save your game at the start and holiday for about 2 years and look in the rules for the Brexit ruling as its determined the moment you begin the game. If its one you like go back to the start of the save, if its one you don't want then start a new game. Ive had a few different ones, I recently had a very hard Brexit playing a save in Scotland and it made it very hard to compete, so I understand the pain.

    From lower league experience, sounds like you wont be able to hold him. Play him as much as you can, this will increase reputation and number of clubs interested in him and interest in him in general, there will be a point where bigger clubs will start poking their nose in if he is quality and it is really hard to keep a high potential player in the lower leagues, if you get a gem and clubs are interested hold out for as much as you can, or offer to clubs for millions (sounds mad, but ive sold players from the conference for 2.5 million) and you can build your club up for years. Be aware there will be a point where the board will just accept a ****** offer so make sure you get in before that happens.

    Australian league help please

    Playing now. A challenging league I guess, salary capped, like the MLS. There are a few quality ex A-league players floating around in the lower leagues that are definitely good enough to play I the A-league and they are cheap. The hardest thing is that here is a 4 player foreign limit, so make the most of that by keeping the spine of your team strong, you will find a much better striker, centre mid and centre back foreign than you will locally. Free transfers are your friend, find all the aussie players you can and add them to your shortlist and try and sign them when there contracts are expiring or when they are available, also there a re quite a few aussie players available on loan mainly from England (tom glover, aiden oneil) who will add quality to your team, and a lot scattered across scandanavia, most contracts run down, so you have a chance to sign them if quick enough. Champions league group stage is easy enough to finish in the top two, but if you load up the asain leagues, will be a good challenge once you reach the round of 16 as there are some quality chinese and south Korean teams to beat. I have won the ACL in previous versions but never the Club world cup, that's my challenge for this version...

    Save Scumming ?

    I think you can ALT-F4 at any point to bring up a quit menu at any point, sorry, just checked, that will close the whole game, not get you back to the start screen.
  5. I'm just wondering if anyone knows the yearly or monthly costs of the varying levels of junior coaching and youth recruitment? I'm playing a lower league save and I can upgrade my junior coaching and youth recruitment levels again, but our finances aren't huge and I don't want to start putting us in the red by overcommitting to either of these, I know the current cost of the junior coaching (about 20k per month at adequate level) but am not sure how much the cost will go up to if I upgrade it, anyone have that information or am I missing it somewhere?
  6. Hey guys, may have been asked before, but I cant find it, I'm doing a youth save and have the money to either upgrade youth facilities or training facilities, not both. Couple of things, at what age to players stop being trained in the youth facilities, is it when they are in the first team, or age, or dependent on contact type? Reason I ask is I want to develop youth but the better youngsters get into my first team at 17 or 18 so I want to upgrade whatever will benefit them the most, cheers.
  7. I'm managing in an average league at the moment, my hoyd has fairly determined personality. 17 determination, 6 working with youngsters, 10 jpa, 12 jpp. I can sign Dirk Kuyt, who is a model professional, 18 determination, 17 working with youngsters, but only 2 jpa, 2 jpp. I don't need either for the coaching attributes, they are simply for the role of bringing the youngsters to the club, my issue is do the 2 for jpa and jpp affect youth intakes at all?
  8. Definitely following this with interest, am planning a similar save myself, just waiting until the 17.3 patch comes out. I think your spot on with shifting some of the older players on some big wages, the club is certainly one that brings young players through in real life. The 4231 line up and instructions looks pretty close to how they play as well, hope you can hang onto Maclaren, he is a goal machine. Good luck with the save. Out of curiosity, do you have any other Asian leagues open?
  9. Chinese transfer window finishes on the 28th of Feb or so, I think that's the last transfer window open they are waiting on for activity, so a few days after that probably. First week of March it usually is.
  10. No, I tried it in an English lower league save to keep off the vultures, clubs still bid lower than the release clause, and the board still accept, whether it slowed it or stopped some clubs from being interested I'm not sure.
  11. I haven't seen Brexit yet, I'm only up to February 2019, its my first save this game so I'm not sure when its announced in the game.
  12. I started a game with AFC Telford in the vanarama north league, promoted a few youth players to fill the squad out a bit, a young left winger called Matthew Adamson ended up with a spot on the left wing, mainly because I didn't have the money to buy anyone else and he was a reasonable standard for the league, around 12-13 for acc, pace, crossing and dribbling and flair, and not too much else. After a good season, 10 goals and 15 assists or so we got promoted to the vanarama national league, during this season he had a fair season and started getting a bit of interest from clubs in league 1 and lower championship teams, though I rebuffed their offers, he was only valued about 25k or so. We stayed in the vanarama national that season, which brings me to the current season, and I couldn't keep him happy due to interest from top championship clubs, I held him as long as I could, I set his value to 500k but it didn't deter and Hull (in the Championship) started offering around 450k, then 500k, just because I really didn't want to sell him I suggested 5 million as a bit of a joke and to my amazement they accepted. 5 million. I saved the game and reloaded to a point before the negotiation just to see what they would have paid, and I could get it to about 7.5 million pounds. Now, a couple of things, in my reports it says he could be a championship winger in the future and he has developed well, but I'm wondering has this happened to anyone else?? I mean it will set my club up for a long long time, but does seem a little unrealistic. Thoughts? Ive put a picture of him here just after he signed for Hull and I put a loan back for rest of season clause in the offer.
  13. Sorry if bought up before, I was a little cynical on the effect of a good tutor until this week. I joined Everton as manager in about 2020 (favourite club) and managed to pick up Diego Costa on the cheap from Juventus and have assigned him to tutor a striker with good potential who was floating around in the under 21s until I brought him up, since tutoring him the rises in his stats have been exceptional, perhaps with the combination of first team football he has gone from backup at best to almost key player, just wondering who has been the tutors who have made a real difference to your young players?
  14. I had a game going with St Albans in the non league, when I started I was looking through the under 18s and a 16 year old cm called Steven Lewis was an excellent prospect, I'm not sure if he is a random ca/pa player or just got added because of lack of players, but I immediately moved him into the first team and he performed very well. I couldn't get him to sign a new contract because he knew he was far too good for the league and at 18 he went to Aston Villa, he was an England under 19 international that year and was in the Villa first team at 20 and in the under 21 England squad. My game crashed when he was about 21 but he was playing well in the premier league and developing well also, if the game had of continued I have no doubt he would have ended up a full international, I'm not sure about world beater, but definitely a quality premier league player.

    27 first team coaches?

    I haven't seen that before, though in a llm save with St Albans from the vanarama south, I remember being offered and taking European scouting when we were in league 2 and when I got promoted to league one, got offered worldwide scouting. I declined to put the money into training facilities instead. Our finances were average, not good enough to be able to offer worldwide scouting I didn't think, maybe finances play a part?
