  1. I've tried searching in the forum to first see if I could find some guidance on this topic but I couldn't see anything. I'm managing in the English League Two. My players are full-time professionals but when I try to sign scouts I can only offer pert-time salaries. Where can I change this, or if it can't be changed, when should I be able to offer full-time contracts to scouts? Many Thanks.
  2. I would like to ask if it's possible to assign your Assistant Manager to setup the corners and free-kicks?
  3. Manager of Odd in the Norwegian league. I received this message in case it's a bug. I have approx £9m in the bank. Looking at the finances I have a £2.1m Loan outstanding for another 4 years. The 5-year club vision says to work within the wage budget and I'm "on course" to meet that vision. I'm not sure why bringing in more money from player sales will reduce the % amount to retain?
  4. Where would any incentives be shown to get as much revenue to decrease the debt? Have £9m in the bank and I see there is a £2.1m loan outstanding for another 4 years, but I don't recall seeing anything specific about an incentive. Only financial vision in the club vision is to work within the wage budget, which I am "on course" to achieve.
  5. Could someone help me understand this statement? I have a healthy balance (£9,000,000) at Odd in Norway. I've received this comment saying the % retained will reduce even further when I sell more and bring money back into the club? I'm not sure I really get it because wouldn't the % to retain increase if I sold more players?
  6. I'm not sure if I'm reading this correctly, so I'll hold my hand up if I've misunderstood. Why would the board reduce the amount I keep from player sales from 75% "down" to 40% after I have received £8m in sales? Surely if I've brought in £8m of sales and increase the balance, I'd expect the % to increase, aiming for 100%?
  7. Managing Odd in Norway. Man United have made an offer for a player that the Chairman has accepted. I tried to get him to renegotiate the deal with United and received the following message saying "due to a poor run of recent results" they won't accept my demand. I've just been on a record 6-game unbeaten run until the last game stopped that. I'm not sure one loss in the last game should or would warrant a comment such as a "poor run" and a reason to refuse my demand. It also shows my Job Security is Very Secure especially upon meeting a club vision to challenge for silverware, 4 years early. Though I should report it in case it's a bug
  8. I have the same issue and thought it was just me, and only since the NVidia driver update, So I'm gonna give this a go now.....hopefully, it works.
  9. Hi all, Is there a way within the Editor to give yourself a history as a player before you became a Football Manager? Thanks.
  10. I now look to bring in a sports scientist at a lower league team as I've read here somewhere that they help reduce fatigue during the season. (someone might need to reconfirm this) With a low league club and small squad , I'll likely need my players to play a lot of games in a season so I think this position is worth filling. As for under 18s I personally leave this unless I have a good Under 18s team and a good number of players with potential. No point if you don't have a youth team or say just 3 players in the Under 18s. At least that's my view. If I have only 1 or 2 under 18s with decent potential, I'll promote them to the first team and they'll be trained by my first team coaches anyway.
  11. I feel for you after the progress you've made. This is the reason I don't start a long term save in the Beta. Instead I wait until the first patch for the full game is released. Until then I play short term challenges just 1 or 2 season. For example managing a team odds on to get relegated, but keeping them up.
  12. Got a couple of youngsters, now need to wait until they've been at the club for 3 years
