O'sullivan lands barnet windfall.

In a display of incredible generosity,the barnet board have decided to give you a sum in the region of 500 million to spend on players and a new stadium.

Please confirm your acceptance of this unexpected bonus.

Never seen this before and i almost don't want the money. The crazy thing is it's 2024 and i can't improve the stadium until at least 2029.I really think si need to look at this surely ten years is enough of a gap. I've won the champion's league and i'am still stuck in the hive until 2029 at least. Anyway i've had a few to many and have never seen this post before been playing since 95/97 italia and just thought i would share.Madness, almost up there with roberto baggio back in the day.

It's been in every version since the beginning of time.

Just got that message. For a second, I thought "wow, they really have money in wrexham". Then took a screenshot and then and only then realised we are April 1st.

Of course, I clicked on Accept and then got the message... Funny men ;)

I won't be getting it on this version of the game as I'm only in October, and am in work until late tonight - but I've had it a couple of times in previous versions. Was hoping that something new would come up this year to be honest, though I still like it.

You used to be able to make it happen by changing the date on your computer, but I'm not sure if you can still do that.

Mine had all that (I'm in the Championship with Stoke), but it said it was all a SI joke.

"In a display of incredible generosity, the Arsenal board have decided to award you a sum in the region of €592M to spend on players and a new stadium. Please confirm your acceptance of this unexpected bonus." Only choice then available is a "accept" button; I would have wanted one that says "Yeah, right ...".

April fool's messages have been in the game a long time. I have seen them before. Don't know exactly when SI started this, and I'm not sure if they're in every edition.

I had this for the first time yesterday (which ironically was also my birthday).

I thought it was real at first, and didn't want to accept as I thought the game would become too easy!

Very funny though!

does this work on any april 1st? or just april 1st 2014?

It works every time your game reaches April 1st while the real-life date is also April 1st.

My goal for next year, load up FM 10, FM 11, FM 12, FM 13, FM 14 and FM 15, get a save under all of them to March 31st, and then log them all in on April 1st and get a screen shot of each...yeah, I have no life.

Well, I remember my guidance counselor telling me I needed goals. This is as worthy as any I think.
