  1. Hi Guys, I am trying to locate the weaker foot of players who are described as having a "Very Good" left foot and also a "Very Good" right foot. In the past I use to believe if a player had Very Good on both his left and right foot, it meant he had a 20 rating for left and his right foot. I have recently found out this is not true. The only way I know how to check this is to use the in game editor, but I don't have the in game editor enabled on all of my save games, so I am not sure how to find this out in the ones without the editor. For example if you look at Neymar he has a Very Good right & left foot. So I assumed he had 20 20 on both feet until when I recently checked him it said 20 right foot and 15 left foot (Don't quote me on that but I'm sure it it didn't say 20 20). So now that I know this, my question is: In a game where you do not have the in game editor, how to you find out which is the players weaker foot when the game describes both as Very Good.
  2. I bought FM18 a few days ago and i made some downloads to put some logos and faces in the game but then there s a problems because when I make some games in the leagues the game crashes, I´ve been trying resolve this problem but with no success this what apeears when i go to the crash dumps file: FM 2018 v18.3.0.1069581, can someone help me?
  3. So the three stands that are left, right and bottom are all being upgraded but they are all greyed out. Anyone know why?
  4. Hi i have been playing fm 2018 & i found a few websites with good content but mainly for all versions of game , so I decided to make a website dedicated to fm 2018 :- https://fmworld.club/ site is setup & open for free membership , I will be adding content as i get time but if new members can help it would build up fmworld community quicker , if any new forums are requested then I'm open to suggestions & change.
  5. Good Night, We create a save on, but at the time of saving it is knocking down the players. What to do?
  6. My _CommonRedist and data files are missing from my Football Manager 2018 file directory. Have they been moved to a different location or am I genuinely missing these files?
  7. I've created an editor data file that resembles the real-life structure in Ireland as closely as I can. The file verifies in basic rules, however, there is a issue with the playoffs; in real life, as of the 2018 season, teams that finish 2nd to 4th in the First Division enter a promotion playoff. The teams which finish 3rd and 4th play each other over a two-legged tie, with the winner advancing to play the team which finished second in another two-legged tie. The winner of that tie then advances to a promotion/relegation playoff with the team that finished 9th in the Premier Division. This doesn't happen in game, though, I've the rules set up in basic rules as follows: The game does't do this; instead, it sees the playoffs as two different things, with the promotion playoff in the First Division having no effect on promotion, while the promotion/relegation playoff involving the team from the Premier Division just selects the team which finished second in the First Division, but this team will still take part in the promotion playoff in the First Division. I've tried to see if I can modify the rules in advanced rules in order to achieve what I want, but to be honest, I don't really understand how to set up or edit the rules in advanced rules, and even when I left the rules as they are and just made some changes to rules that didn't affect the leagues (e.g. work permit rules), I got an error message that was telling me the wrong number of teams were being relegated and promoted (it was telling me two teams were being relegated from the Premier Division, one team was being promoted from the First Division, and no extra teams were requested). In my latest edit, I changed the scheduling of the playoffs to see if this was causing the issue (the promotion/relegation playoff was taking place on the same days as the semi-final of the FD's promotion playoff), and in the stage settings of the Premier Division, I changed "leag" to "prpl" in the "Get Qualified Teams From Stage, SSE Airtricity First Division, xxxx, Promotion Playoff, Use position in previous stage". Now, I'm getting the following error message: I've made sure that dates finish before this date, as I have set the season end date to be the 30th of November, and the final match in the promotion/relegation playoff tie to finish in and around the 20th of November, with the season update day being the 1st of January. Would anyone be able to help me? I'll upload the editor data file if it will be of any help: League & Data Updates - Ireland Version 5 (Advanced Rules).fmf
  8. Puerto Rico 2 Divisions running in parallel: - Puerto Rico Soccer League (10 teams - 3 team championship play-off) - National Football League (LNF) (14 teams - 4 team championship play-off) Copa Luis Villarejo (8 teams cup tournament) - Top 4 PRSL teams - Top 3 LNF teams (No B teams) - Puerto Rico FC If using alongside claassen's CFU Club Championship file (which I would recommend), the following steps are required to have the correct teams qualify for the competition: - Load claassen's CFU Club Championship file in the editor - Select the Advanced Rules -> CFU Club Championship -> Stages -> Stage 0 - 0 (Group) -> Teams - Find "Get Last Winner" and "Get Last Runner Up" entries for Puerto Rico - Change the competition in these two entries to "Puerto Rican Liga Nacional Primera División" - Find entry "Get Specific Team - Puerto Rico FC" - Change this entry to something else (I recommend Get Last Third Place - Jamaican Premier League) - Save and Test Rules If you spot any issues, let me know.

  9. Goodmorning, FM 2018 is crashing on me. When the game is open and i go for a drink or to a mall and when i come back the game has stopped with the following error "Football manager 2018 18.2.1f1051982 (staging) does not work anymore" i have also attached my DXdiag DxDiag.txt
  10. Hey guys! Just purchased FM18 and have a quick question.... Is it possible to scout a team and get recommendations of loan signings? i.e scout Liverpool U23's and see who'd be available? I'm sure you could in past versions - or i could be imagining the whole thing!!
  11. Hello everyone , i have a problem here . I have download some 3d kits for fm2018 as i always do . So this year no 3dkit appears . What is wrong ? Anyone with the same problem ? Here is my printscreen form the /graphics folder . The pre-installed kits ( italy a , france1 etc working ) . Thanks and sorry if i post in wrong sector .
  12. Few ideas: 1. Allow GK/Fitness Coaches to get coaching badges, not sure why this has been removed recently. 2. Accurate Boardroom job titles and responsibilities. Different structure are clubs will require different interactions with manager. I.e. Chief executive deals with manager, chairman is absent and deals with things thru media. When ownership changes structured change/board room tussle's etc. All can impact the managers position/budget/expectations. 3. International Management, make contracted terms enforced, I.e they go onto end of a term and a renegotiating needs to happen for them to stay. On FM2017 Gordon Strachan stays perm even though it shows he has a contract that expired previously. 4. More international management creativity around requests for greater grass roots development and centre of excellence which boosts some elements of domestic league football over a long term (regen improvements). 5. Accurate chairman/board of FA'S, who move and change with similar impacts as club management.
  13. Replacement transfer targets: For example you could set someone as a ''Replacement Transfer Target'' for a specific player already in your squad. If that player leaves your team, the player you chose as replacement will automatically become a Transfer Target.
  14. Would like to see more variety from clubs, particularly clubs below the Premier league in England with regards to employing new managers. In real life a lot of clubs make some very left field managerial appointments, a lot coming in from abroad and bringing with them a lot of their National counterparts to play and coach etc. I think this could be modelled in Football Manager a little bit better, as in my saves clubs tend to just stick with the 'safe bets' and hire somebody with loads of experience in that division whereas we've seen with the likes of Huddersfield, Sheffield Wednesday and now Norwich that there is another route to take. Could be something to tweak for the next version just to add to the realism if nothing else?
  15. The 'start today' option can be a way for to customize the season/campaign experience. Since the football season is already underway, it would be an awesome adittion to be able to start as per today. The option allows for users to begin their season with up-to-date standings and statistics. Now 7/8 months into the season teams are in the race for the national title or fighting agains relegation. Also, teams progressed and are eliminated from the Champions and/or Europe League. All teams should have the correct win-loss records and correct player stats (games played, goals, assists). Some gamers may wish to jump on the bandwagon of those with hot starts or look to turn things around for those that have disappointed thus far. It would add another exciting realistic option to the most realistic manager game.
  16. Hello I seem to be getting a random crash in game, I think it maybe a memory issue, maybe from my end as this has happened on a few FM games. It only seems to happen when I am a couple of years into the game. Thanks FM 2018 v18.1.2.1043463 (2017.11.22 11.36.21).dmp FM 2018 v18.1.2.1043463 (2017.11.23 12.20.40).dmp FM 2018 v18.1.3.1045020 (2017.11.27 21.40.31).dmp
  17. Not much to show for it at the moment, but in process of making upgraded higher quality graphics for the scouting knowledge maps in particular. Very much in its infancy at the moment but thought I would put it out there. A lot will be hand drawn to ensure high quality. If anyone has anything particular to suggest please do so.
  18. Πανθεσσαλονίκειος Αθλητικός Ομιλος Κωνσταντινουπολιτών In 1922, most refugees from Constantinople opted to set up their new homes in the centre of Thessaloniki- being bourgeois, they preferred to secure the basic comforts they enjoyed previously. They formed compact societies and went on to set up a club. The “Union of Thessaloniki Constantinopolitans” was founded in May 1924 and is thought of as the threshold for the creation of various sports clubs carrying on the torch from their Constantinople’ predecessors. As provided in the Article 27 of the association, “if a sports section is created within the social club, then the former can become independent yet keep the same name, according to Olympic Committee regulations”. In June 1925, the sports section of the “Union of Thessaloniki Constantinopolitans” was inaugurated. Fanourios Vyzantios was appointed president, with Nikos Petropoulos and Aristidis Misios as members of the administration. After a few months of activity in all sports, the footballers of the club along with members of the Union expressed their wish for secession from the central social club in December 1925. The creation of AEK Thessaloniki aroused strong feelings. The procedures were cancelled, as the transfer of sporting activities should have been confirmed by the General Assembly and not the Board of Directors. Two prevailing trends appeared. The initiative was dubbed “rebellion” via an official announcement of the “Union of Thessaloniki Constantinopolitans”. All those opposed to the division rallied around then president of the Sports Executive Committee Nikos Petropoulos. The “battle” between the two sides lasted quite a long time and the joint General Assembly took place on 7 March 1926 to settle a dispute that emerged in December 1925. Nikos Petropoulos took 92 votes, level with Aristidis Misios who was on his side, and became president. The footballers, who had played a leading part in the secession, didn’t accept the development and sent an official announcement to the newspapers, inveighing against the new administration. “We hereby declare that we belonged and will obey the rulings of the first legal Board of Directors. We do not accept you as administration, even if you are legalized”. The new administration of AEK Thessaloniki chose to expel the players who had signed the announcement and refer them to the Union of Football Clubs of Makedonia and Thrace. The reaction of the other part was to be expected. At first, they held an unofficial encounter against Panathinaikos on 28 March 1926 and lost 5-0. On March 1926, Τr. Triantafyllidis, Κ. Koemtzopoulos, Κ. Kritikos, Μ. Theodosiadis, I. Ioakimopoulos, Αr. Dimitriadis, Α. Angelopoulos and Μ. Tsoulkas gathered in the Constantinopolitans’ Club and signed the establishment protocol of the new sports club. On 5 April, the General Assembly took place with the participation of the footballers. On 20 April 1926, PAOK’s first memorandum of association was approved on an order by the Thessaloniki Court of First Instance (No. 822). The first emblem of PAOK (1926) depicted a four-leaf clover and a horseshoe. The leaves were green and above them were the initials of the word PAOK. The unforgettable Kostas Koemtzopoulos came up with this idea, inspired by his brand of cigarettes. The first Board of Directors of PAOK (1926-27) consisted of: President: T. Triantafyllidis First vice-president: P. Kalpaktsoglou Second vice-president: A. Athanasiadis General secretary: K. Kritikos Special secretary: M. Tsoulkas Treasurer: Th. Ioakimopoulos Director of football: A. Angelopoulos Consultants: M. Konstantinidis and S. Triantafyllidis The separation of 1926 created a deep discord and the new club would face many problems because of it. Their members wanted to change the status quo and called all Thessaloniki clubs in an assembly on 28 July 1926 in order to propose the creation of a new Union of Football Clubs consisting only of the Thessaloniki outfits and leaving central administration to the Makedonia-Thrace Union. PAOK were accused of mutiny because of the “false assembly” (as dubbed by EPSMTH) and were handed a three-month ban with a six-month suspension. The team’s administration wanted to prove that they were a living part of Thessaloniki’ sports scene and registered 50 players to the Union for the upcoming season, scheduled to kick off in fall 1926. In 1926-27, PAOK took part in the B’ Thessaloniki League, where AEK Thessaloniki were also participating. They played their first official encounter on 12 December 1926, prevailing 3-1 over Nea Genea. According to EPSMTH’s proclamation, the Union would ratify PAOK’s promotion only if they defeated all teams of A’ Thessaloniki League. They did so in style –after claiming the B’ Thessaloniki League title, they defeated all teams of the A’ League (Thermaikos, Aris and Atlantas) and gave their last match of the season at Iraklis, prevailing 1-0 over them courtesy of a Tsolakidis’ goal. In 1927-28, PAOK took part in the A’ Thessaloniki League for the first time. In 1930-31 they qualified for their maiden participation in the Greek League. They made their debut on 1 February 1931 in Piraeus, losing 3-1 to Olympiacos. In 1928, they engaged in yet another dispute with AEK Thessaloniki, regarding the acquisition of land to build a stadium. AEK eventually got their way, as the land was not big enough for a football field. In March 1929, the six-month effort to merge the twinned clubs finally bore fruit. AEK Thessaloniki had dissolved their football section since 1927 and preserved just the athletics’ sections. These sections were essentially absorbed, as there was no decision to merge nor were AEK Thessaloniki legally dissolved. PAOK changed their emblem, adopted the Double-Headed Eagle, took over the installations of AEK Thessaloniki (among them, the area in the Syntrivani region, where the Theological School stands today). In 1929, both clubs tried to expand the area in order to build a home ground for PAOK. After dealing with the underground river by channeling the water through pipes, PAOK managed to lay the foundation stone on 12 December 1930, as a pre-election promise one week before municipal elections. Construction work finished relatively soon and, on 5 June 1932, the Syntrivani Stadium was inaugurated with PAOK’s 3-2 victory over Iraklis. The first distinctions PAOK won their first Thessaloniki League in 1937. In the following year, Nikos Sotiriadis became the first player of the Double-Headed Eagle to earn a cap with the Greece national team. On 28 May 1939 PAOK played their first Greek Cup final, losing 2-1 to AEK in Leoforos Alexandra. On their way to the final, the Thessaloniki outfit had eliminated Ellas Florina (6-1), Iraklis (3-2) and Ethnikos (4-0). In the final showdown, PAOK took the lead through Aristidis Ioannidis-Apostolou (39’), but AEK turned the tie around with goals by Chatzistavridis and Manetas to lift the trophy. PAOK’s starting line-up that day: Sotiriadis, Koukoulas, Kontopoulos, Kalogiannis, Vatikis, Panidis, Glaros, Bostantzoglou, Arvanitidis, Ioannidis-Apostolou, Kritas. After World War II, PAOK regrouped and in 1951 they made it once more to the Greek Cup final, held again at Leoforos Alexandra. Their rivals on that occasion were Olympiacos, who went on to win 4-0. The starting eleven of PAOK that day: Lykaris, Patakas, Golemis, Arvanitis, Gogos, Psomas, Vassiliadis, Mouratidis, Tzinopoulos, Papadakis, Emmanouilidis. The chicos of Willy and the Golden Era Wilhelm (Willi) Sefzik, the Austrian coach who also played for the club back in 1931-32, made a breakthrough move in 1952 that would change PAOK’s status. He created the Academy of the Double-Headed Eagle, the renowned “chicos of Willi”, in order to trace and push forward talented players by working with them from a very young age. The experiment proved successful as the youth section produced big players who made history for PAOK, such as Leandros, Symeonidis, Giannelos, Margaritis, Giorgos Chavanidis etc. The creation of the Academy, along with the signings of PAOK in the early ‘50s upgraded the team and marked the dawn of their first golden era. In the summer of 1953, the club signed Kouiroukidis, Petridis, Progios, Geroudis, Kemanidis, Chourvouliadis, Chasiotis and Angelidis. PAOK became an almighty force and were proclaimed Thessaloniki champions for three years in a row, boosted by the legendary trio Gentzis, Kouiroukidis and Papadakis. PAOK were Thessaloniki’s main representative in the Greek football stage and the senior team of the club reached their third Greek Cup final in 1955. The match was played in the home ground of their rival, Panathinaikos, in Leoforos Alexandras Stadium! Making their home advantage count, the Greens prevailed 2-0. The starting eleven of PAOK that day: Progios, Kermanidis, Geroudis, Kalogiannis, Chasiotis, Doukakis, Tsintoglou, Karafoulidis, Gentzis, Papadakis, Kiourtzis. The construction of Toumba Stadium The team was progressing rapidly, creating the need for the club to have their own bigger and better home ground, where they could stage their ambitions. Searching out for the best location, PAOK’s administration chose an area at Toumba that belonged to the Ministry of National Defence. The specific area was picked for two reasons. Firstly, that neighborhood of Thessaloniki had an indissoluble bond with the refugees from Asia Minor. Secondly, the huge stretch on offer permitted PAOK to create a big arena. After the essential negotiations, the club purchased the 7.5-acre area and construction began. There was also a lottery authorized to help finance the works. Toumba Stadium opened its gates for the first time on 6 September 1959 to welcome PAOK and their supporters. It was inaugurated by the Minister of National Defence, G. Themelis. Before kick-off of the friendly encounter against AEK, the ball was thrown from a military aircraft overflying the premises. The inauguration of Toumba coincided with the inaugural season of the A’ Ethniki Katigoria, therefore permitting PAOK to kick off their engagements in the league in their own brand new home. The following years went by without any noteworthy success for the club. PAOK made their maiden appearance in European competition in 1965-66, when they faced Wiener SK for the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup. The great team of the ‘70s PAOK laid down the foundations for one of the best teams ever to grace Greek football fields. Thanks to their methodical acquisition of young talented players who went on to consolidate themselves in football’s Hall of Fame, the Double-Headed Eagle built a squad that managed to combine free-flowing attractive football with titles. Led by Giorgos Koudas and a horde of great players like Stavros Sarafis, Achilleas Terzanidis, Dimitris Paridis, Kostas Iosifidis, Giannis Gounaris and Christos Terzanidis among others, PAOK became a title contender and reached milestones that still stand to this day. That team gave PAOK their first titles. From 1970 until 1974, the Double-Headed Eagle competed in five consecutive Greek Cup finals, winning the trophy twice. The first trophy was won in 1972, when PAOK prevailed 2-1 over Panathinaikos in Karaiskakis Stadium, Koudas netting a brace in an encounter attended by 34.831 spectators. PAOK’s line-up was the following: Chatzioannou, Gounaris, Papadopoulos, Iosifidis, Fountoukidis, Terzanidis, Bellis, Sarafis (68’ Lazos), Apostolidis, Koudas, Aslanidis (76’ Mantzourakis). Two years later, Les Shannon troops went on to defeat Olympiacos and reclaim the trophy. The score after regulation time and extra time was 2-2 and the Double-Headed Eagle won 4-3 in the penalty shootout. PAOK’s starting line-up was: Stefas, Gounaris, Tsiligiridis, Iosifidis, Pellios, Terzanidis (113’ Fountoukidis), Paridis, Sarafis, Apostolidis, Koudas, Aslanidis (95’ Anastasiadis). Those two Greek Cups proved the appetizers before the main course, served in 1976. By then PAOK had managed to cope with pressure and won their maiden Greek league title. Apart from their success, as they were also finalists of the Greek Cup editions of 1977 and 1978, the team’s playing style earned them many friends and admirers across Greece. The emergence of PAOK FC and the second league title In the late ‘70s football became professional in Greece and PAOK entered a new era. On 18 July 1979, a limited liability football company (Ltd) was founded by the name “Pan-Thessalonikan Athletic Club of Constantinopolitans” (Panthessalonikios Athlitikos Omilos Konstantinopoliton), entitled “PAOK FC”. The starting share-capital amounted to 37.100.000 drachmas and the unforgettable Giorgos Pantelakis became the first president. PAOK’ high flights would continue during the ‘80s, with just a few seasons to forget. The team reached the Greek Cup final three more times, but didn’t win the trophy again before 2001. In 1981, they lost 3-1 to Olympiacos in Nea Filadelfia Stadium, in 1983 they were defeated 2-0 by AEK in the Olympic Stadium of Athens and, in 1985, in the same venue, they lost 4-1 to Larissa. A major year in the history of PAOK would be 1985. The Double-Headed Eagle won their second league title (first professional one), led by Austrian head coach Walter Skocik. The team included players such as Iosifidis, Alavantas, Alexandridis, Vasilakos, Jurišić, Damanakis, Dimopoulos, Kostikos, Pantelis, Paprica, Skartados, Tsourelas etc. The main characteristic of the ‘80s was the unconditional love and the fanaticism of the fans, a phenomenon breaking all records and transcending Greek borders. The decade’s highlights were the two encounters against FC Bayern München, with PAOK managing to hold the Bavarians both in Toumba and in Munich, but succumbed in the penalty shootout. Their elimination however didn’t eclipse the Double-Headed Eagle’s magnificent effort against one of Europe’s powerhouses. The… sterile ‘90s The league triumph of 1985 completed a cycle of success and the dawn of the ‘90s found PAOK in sporting recess. Another participation in the Greek Cup final in 1991-1992 ended with the “Double-Headed Eagle” on the losing side, in a two-legged tie with Olympiacos (1-1 at Toumba, 0-2 at Karaiskakis Stadium). PAOK were banned from European competition following crowd incidents in the home encounter against Paris St-Germain. The fans’ clash with president Thomas Voulinos led to a change of ownership in 1996. The majority of the club’s shares was acquired by Giorgos Batatoudis in 1996. The Greek businessman from Evros, who based his companies in Athens, started his tenure impressively. The acquisition of Zisis Vryzas from Skoda Xanthi in the summer of 1996 and the signings of Kostas Fratzeskos from OFI Crete and Spyros Marangos from Panathinaikos in January 1997 lifted the competitive profile of the team. The squad already boasted the presence of great players like Thodoros Zagorakis, Giorgos Toursounidis and Nikos Michopoulos. With Angelos Anastasiadis at the helm, PAOK had two excellent seasons (1996-97, 1997-98) and qualified easily for the UEFA Cup. Back to their winning ways The squad was reinforced with great players (Georgiadis, P. Konstantinidis. V. Borbokis, Venetidis, Okkas, Egomitis, Frousos, Nalitzis etc.) and in January 2000 the coaching reins were handed to Bosnian Dušan Bajević. Under his tutelage, the Double-Headed Eagle played excellent football. In May 2001, PAOK emphatically prevailed 4-2 over Olympiacos in the Greek Cup final, held at Nea Filadelfia, and celebrated their first trophy in 16 years. The return of the team in Thessaloniki was spectacular. Fans had packed the city streets to applaud the triumphant squad that greeted the fans from the top of the White Tower. Two years later, PAOK won the Greek Cup once again. They defeated Aris 1-0 in Toumba Stadium, thanks to a goal by Giorgos Georgiadis. Angelos Anastasiadis was the coach on that occasion (his third spell at the coaching job at PAOK). He is the only one who has celebrated titles with the Double-Headed Eagle both as player and as coach. The Zagorakis era In the summer of 2005, Thodoros Zagorakis returned to PAOK, seven years after leaving (1998) to continue his career at the ranks of Leicester, AEK and Bologna. The skipper of the Greek team that triumphed in Euro 2004 retired in 2007, but he didn’t leave Toumba. In a financially and administratively challenging period, Zagorakis assumed PAOK FC’s presidency in an effort to lead them back to greatness. He was joined –among other personalities- by another veteran player of the club, Zisis Vryzas. PAOK fans rallied around the new effort and, by becoming the main financial supporters of the club, they helped the Double-Headed Eagle back on its feet. The roster was boosted with the arrival of renowned players, like Pablo García, Pablo Contreras, Zlatan Muslimović, André Vieirinha, Vladan Ivić, Kostas Chalkias, Lino, and Fernando Santos took the reins of the squad. PAOK managed to put together a very strong squad and record impressive results in Europe. In 2009-10, they finished second in the Super League and earned a spot in the UEFA Champions League qualifiers –they were eliminated by AFC Ajax after two draws on the away goal rule. The first important challenge for the administration, however, was to construct a new athletic centre. They found the space in 2008 at Nea Mesimvria, in the outskirts of Thessaloniki. The first phase of construction was completed in 2011 and PAOK started using their new sports facilities. Mr. Ivan Savvidis’ investment One year later, PAOK stepped into a new chapter of their history, as Mr. Ivan Savvidis acquired the majority of the shares. He first became interested in the purchase of PAOK FC in 2006. Six years later, he reiterated his wish to invest in the Double-Headed Eagle. Negotiations lasted for five months and in August 2012 a deal was struck, making him the majority shareholder of the club. Panagiotis Katsouris’ memory is still alive… The death of Panagiotis Katsouris is a black page in PAOK’s history books. A young, lad, who put on the black-and-white jersey for 18 months, met an untimely death at the age of 22 in a car accident, a few minutes after playing a 5×5 match with his friends. Panagiotis was passionate about football and cars –the latter betrayed him on 9 February 1998. Born on 28 October 1976, Katsouris joined PAOK from Naoussa in the summer of 1996. He was arguably the best left-full back of his generation, already an U21 international –that proved the quickest way to the initial line-up of the “Double-Headed Eagle”. In 8 September 1996, in the league opener against OFI that PAOK won 3-1, Swede tactician Gunder Bengtsson gave Panagiotis his first start. His circle at PAOK would sadly stop abruptly against the same opponent: vs OFI at Toumba Stadium. On 25 January 1998, a few days before the accident, he featured for 12 minutes in the encounter against the Cretan outfit. He netted 3 goals in a total of 29 games for the “Double-Headed Eagle”: 24 matches for the league, four in the Greek Cup and one UEFA Cup encounter against Club Atlético de Madrid. A memorial service is held every year on the spot where Katsouris lost control of his car and lost his life. Everybody attends it: the administration of PAOK FC, the family and friends of the player and PAOK fans. Since 2009, the club hold the annual Youth Tournament “Panagiotis Katsouris” in his memory –a renowned tournament and among the best in the Balkans. 04.10.1999 | Time doesn’t go by, it stops… Six names stand the test of time, as nobody at PAOK has forgotten them… Charalampos, Dimitris, Christina, Anastasios, Giorgos, Kyriakos… Your love for PAOK brought you here, left you here and went beyond. Your love has become a beacon of devotion and loyalty to the four-letter ideal for those who sit by your seats, remember your outings and shed tears recollecting that fateful evening of October 1999. Your beloved habit, your addiction to the “Double-Headed Eagle’s” worship led you to the double-decker bus that drove you to the Olympic Stadium of Athens on 3 October. You were there, you chanted for PAOK, you celebrated Nagbe’s equalizer and then boarded the bus again for the trip back home. By dawn, you were tired, as every time that you would travel hundreds of kilometers in one day in order to stand by the team, show your devotion, teach every newcomer what determination is. The change of driver proved fatal… A clumsy overtake, two kilometers away from the Tempi tolls, loss of control and the Kordelios Fan Club bus drove off the road to plunge down… Thousands of “why” questions have been asked, thousands of pages filled with the survivors’ memories have been written about that dreadful accident at Tempi. Strong memory is the essential ingredient for the maintenance of PAOK’s character and values that unite so many souls to sing the same chants, to applaud the same emblem, to sacrifice so much, to sacrifice themselves… Since then, guys, another chant has been added to the lot. You would sing it too, were it not about you: “Brothers, you are alive and guiding us…” Indescribable shiver… You should feel proud that everybody sings as one… We all begged that the clock would turn back. We prayed so hard, but it wasn’t to be. We didn’t resign however. We swore we would not let time pass you by. We would not remember you just on the anniversary of that day. We remember and get inspired by you always. Time stopped on 04.10.1999… On that day, PAOK mourned. Since that day, PAOK are “maimed”. Whatever we achieve and dedicate to you, we will always pray that you could be here with us…
  19. Hi Everyone. I'm currently having a tough time with the editor and was wondering if some of you veterans could help me. I'm attempting to create a custom team with a bunch of fictional players and no matter what I do, I just can't seem to get the engine to recognise any of them as home-grown, except those that are under the age of 21. I've pretty much made them all the same way, initially giving them 2000 days at my club, between the ages of 15 and 21. When that didn't work, I upped the number of days to 11,111, figuring that ought to ensure they had all been trained at my English club. But they still don't come out as home grown. Here are a few screenshots for one of my players. He's 25, born in England and has only ever played for my club. His main page, showing his basic information. His club contract. Days at Club/In Nation. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated as I'm absolutely tearing my hair out over this.
