  1. [South America] (Official) Data Issues

    Was it? That's unfortunate as it seems that the player and his family fell for it also. Thanks for updating me though! Do you have a contact at the club? I'd suggest advising them to try and find out who is illegally representing them! For FM, just set the player as a free agent and he'll end up back with me eventually!
  2. [Italy] (Official) Data Issues

    Jumping is a little bit misnamed, it really means the reach of the player. What that means is that it takes into account height. Icardi is oy 1.81 m tall, so to fit with the guidelines he is in the right ballpark (it could be raised 1-2 points but not a huge deal more than that)
  3. Technically, it is correct. The PA should be at the maximum ability that a player reached. If Messi is still in the DB as a player at 50, his PA should always be in the 190's. Of course, usually you wouldn't need to raise the PA to reach this unless it was lowered incorrectly Now, whether Sturridge ever hit a peak at 168 is another debate to have....
  4. [Italy] (Official) Data Issues

    Can you add a club affiliation between Cagliari (1114) and Ureña (86012640). It was agreed on 16/12/17 and the president of Ureña was a guest of the Cagliari president for the match vs Milan this year. Not clear what type of affiliation this will be yet, although Ureña did send a U15 international to train with Cagliari. As such, I would probably set it as a "good relations" affiliate for the moment, until further information is clearer. https://twitter.com/MundoVinotinto6/status/942160826261262337 http://www.sportsvenezuela.com/urena-establecio-relaciones-con-el-cagliari-de-italia/?platform=hootsuite https://lanaciondeportes.com/noticias/urena-sc-trabaja-alianza-con-el-cagliari-de-italia/ http://www.tuttocagliari.net/mercato/cagliari-si-lavora-per-unalleanza-con-lurena-in-arrivo-due-calciatori-venezuelani-27786 http://www.meridiano.com.ve/futbol/futbol-venezolano/171994/cagliari-estableceria-alianza-con-el-urena-sc---fotos-.html
  5. [Spain] (Official) Data Issues

    Apologies if I have missed something obvious, but is the club Numantia (1699) named correctly? Their official website is http://www.cdnumancia.com/ - so is Numantia a correct spelling or should it be Numancia?
  6. [Colombia] (Official) Data Issues

    The suggestion is the youth teams of Espanyol, which would be Espanyol (not Espanyol B)...not that it makes much difference
  7. [Colombia] (Official) Data Issues

    There are lots of mentions if you google "George Saunders" and Espanyol - see the link above, this one (https://www.elespectador.com/deportes/futbolcolombiano/no-me-comparen-nadie-articulo-404053) etc.
  8. [Colombia] (Official) Data Issues

    http://www.diariolagrada.com/noticias/futbol-base/george-saunders-perico-ingles-colombia_24748.html Suggests he was there in 06-07
  9. [South America] (Official) Data Issues

    Hi cel1234, that "somebody" was me. I'll quickly explain my rationale for this decision. In December 2017, FA El Vigia announced that Ronaldo Rivas would not continue with the club, and that he would would travel to Spain to join a new team. It was later announced on some accounts on Twitter that Rivas had joined the Red Imps in Gibraltar. There were no official announcements by either club (that I saw), however, the news came from a well known radio journalist in Mérida, and was posted under the account of the radio show. Accompanying this was a picture of Rivas holding a piece of paper with the Lincoln Red Imps logo on, thus implying a contract had been signed (see here: https://twitter.com/TDF993/status/954031420267167745). Most clubs in Venezuela don't have up to date websites, and so journalists and twitter is a vital source of information. Further to this, TDF (the radio show) is a genuine entity and regularly has press access to the clubs in the Mérida region (El Vigia, ULA and Estudiantes). Additionally, Rivas's father also retweeted the announcement, giving it further credence. As such, I believed (given the evidence) that this was relatively accurate information. I know that trans-continental transfers are often complicated and fall through, but there was no mention that I had heard of Rivas' transfer falling through. Please also note, that the FIFA window didn't close in Venezuela till March 1st and my data lock was near 6 weeks ago so there is bound to be things that I have missed. Now if this is not correct data then I apologise, but it seemed accurate given what was presented to me. I do find it strange that the club have told you that they have never heard of the player - they either have someone impersonating them incredibly accurately (and you might want to advise them of this so they can stop it) or they are not being entirely truthful (as is their right and perogative). As for Rivas, I have no further information of his whereabouts (although the 2nd division only kicked off this weekend and more information may come to light shortly). For the moment, I am not aware of him being anywhere so if you are certain that he is not in Gibraltar then I would suggest you set him as a free agent. More than happy to discuss things at any time if you have problems, I'm quite cautious with my research and I wouldn't ever set some information unless I thought it was accurate.
  10. [North America] (Official) Data Issues

    I don't think that we record U23 caps...
  11. [France] (Official) Data Issues

    @AlienIR "cedido con opcion compra" means that he is on loan with an option to purchase. There has been no mention of an official transfer in the Venezuelan press or by his club La Guaira. The link provided via Twitter merely confirms the loan with an option to buy at the end of it. EDIT : the link from transfermarkt is incorrect. Please disregard it - it doesn't even list the correct manager of La Guaira!
  12. [South America] (Official) Data Issues

    Yes, the issue is that Bolivia in the example you listed only has greyed out players. Greyed out players are always generated with a lower CA (though I'm not sure why). The reason they have been loaded is to do with the reputation of the real Bolivia players being low, which is related to their ability.
  13. [South America] (Official) Data Issues

    @thegrecians402 I think the fact that there are no 'real' Bolivian players in the DB possibly a factor in this. Would be interested in the results if you loaded all of the South American players and resimmed. Controversial point here though - objectively, I believe that Bolivia does well as a result of its altitude, which unfortunately FM can't replicate too well. The only away game that they won in the past year was a friendly vs Nicaragua, even Venezuela put 5 past them at sea level. If we look on paper, I would also argue that they have the weakest squad in CONMEBOL. I only see Moreno Martins and Chumachero getting near any other countries squad. So I'm not sure if this is necessarily a data issue - artificially raising CA's of Bolivians risks unbalancing the database in my opinion. My personal opinion is that this is a weakness in how FM utilises other factors, like weather and altitude in modifying results. Would be interested to hear others thoughts on this - @Gripper do you think this is more suitable for the game play bugs forum?
  14. [Italy] (Official) Data Issues

    That sort of comment isn't helpful. Please take it to the football forum if you want to continue. Please remember this is the database and research forum. It is not a place for fan arguments so be polite to each other. One thing I will say with regards to Skriniar is that the PA of 163 is what it is in your save @saosinfan4 - he could well have a negative PA that is different each save. Nevertheless I'm sure that the Italian team will review your comments and update Skriniar as they see fit in January.
  15. Personally, in that instance I think that Mullins and Sheehan should be downgraded a little (if Potts is 8 I'd look for Sheehan to be 10 and Mullins 11).
