  1. All in the title really.. I like to allow my staff to make offers for players, when it's a useless player I just cancel the transfer - but occasionally they make a good suggestion. Sometimes however I will find the club has zero scouting knowledge on the player, which seems a bit unusual if I have staff members making transfer offers for them. Anyone else encountered this, or have a way round it?

    Funny Screenshots Thread

    Popped up in my league today. Ref didn't even book anyone!
  3. +100 internets for you sir, thank you very much!
  4. None of my FM14 games would load earlier, they'd start to load but never complete, even after leaving for 5 minutes plus there would be no progress. I restarted my machine and verified the integrity of the game cache and it started to update, now however it is stuck at update paused and when I try to play the game it finishes updating but then says 'An error occurred while updating Football Manager 2014 (disk write error).' I'm aware I will probably have to do a full reinstall of FM14 at this point but it won't even let me copy my saved games out of the folder, every time I try it just tells me 'an unexpected error is keeping you from copying this file... Error 0x80070570: the file or directory is corrupted and unreadable.' Are my save games completely lost? thanks for any help
  5. this thread is really making me want to buy FM15..
  6. *sigh* someone from SI please get this in for next year!
  7. Can you shift click the rows on a players history? (so that it will give a total appearances / goals at the bottom?) Always thought this would be a logical step, would allow to easily total up a players appearances / goals / assists stats for time periods or just when at individual clubs
  8. I guess but that's going to knock off board confidence. would be good if there was an option to go to the board saying that the extra fixture congestion would outweigh the benefits of competing.
  9. In real life would a team be able to opt out of playing in Europe? I know it's an odd situation but certainly for myself on FM if I win the Capital one cup with a struggling prem team for instance (we've all been there, you put a bad team out and it gets you into the semi's so you may as well play to win from that point) but I wouldn't want the European fixtures next season
  10. Sticking to those rules is all well and good, and I can only assume Dave will have intended to but I'm sure we all know that real life can sometimes throw us curveballs that get in the way of less important things like football manager sign-ups. Let's give him the benefit of the doubt
  11. If Dave no longer has the time then I'm sure he could upload the database and save game file to allow someone else to continue running it, it's a good sign up would be a shame to end it early.

    http://www.karmoyped.no/sail/products/Assessment%20in%20Norway.pdf From page 2 ' At the primary level primary level there is no formal grading. Pupils are given both there is no formal grading. Pupils are given both formative assessment (assessment formative assessment (assessment for for learning) and assessment learning) and assessment of of learning learning (”their degree of goal attainment”). But both forms of assessment are only (”their degree of goal attainment”). But both forms of assessment are only given in ”prose language,” i.e. they rece given in ”prose language,” i.e. they receive assessment both orally and in ive assessment both orally and in written form, but these are written form, but these are not graded with symbols not graded with symbols in relation to a formal in relation to a formal scale.' So no, not until around age 12 do formal learning assessments start either (if that is up to date). also Pearson currently lists Norway as having the 9th best educational rank and attainment score, so even if you do not agree with their methods, you can't really argue with their results. Personally I think that concentrating on letting kids develop rather than fitting an early mindset that they need to compete can only be seen as a good thing (both academically and in sport). http://thelearningcurve.pearson.com/index/index-ranking/educational-attainment-highest
  13. Wow, Real Santurtzi coming true on my prediction of collapsing.. except I predicted it to be because of the extra cup fixtures, and they haven't even happened yet. Hopefully they regain some form and stay near to the top
  14. Proud of Santurtzi for beating a strong Getxo side to qualify but we weren't exactly rewarded an easy group! We will be happy with 3rd, getting a result against either of the big Spanish sides would be nice though. I think a tough group like this might put a strain on the squad. I hope to be proved wrong but we might finally see Santurtzi dropping off in the league.
  15. Hopefully Dave is busy holidaying 20 years in to the future...
