They definitely seem rarer than the last couple of FM's, especially at smaller/lower league clubs.

Just had a look through the Premier League in my save.

Newcastle had one fail in 2016 while Leicester got one in 2017. They didn't spend much initially then £17m in 2019 while in the Championship, £23m in 2020 and £40m after they got promotion to the Premiership.

How do you find out Cougar ? Without manually going through the landmarks of each team? I have the ingame editor but not on this save. Deliberately turned it off at the start of this save.

I just flicked through the landmarks of the prem clubs tbh.

I don't think there is a quicker way.

Set your News Subscriptions to Board takeover for all Leagues.

Perhaps SI is taking the global recession into account.There a fewer around with the money to do it compared too 15 years ago,it's gone from being something a Multi Millionaires worth £50 Million or so could do to today where backers worth around £20 Billion or more are bankrolling a team's.

Both Aberdeen and St Mirren got tycoons early in my current save, they haven't broken Celtic's domination yet but Celtic and Aberdeen are certainly the big two in Scotland now.

Currently in my game Leicester City and Hull City have tycoons, but are only 7th and 10th in the Premier League respectively. It's both a blessing and a curse. They're willing to buy just about anyone I transfer list, plus Hull are still one of my feeder clubs from 'before they were famous', so I get first option on their players. But they're snapping up a lot of the best talent from other clubs and paying insane wages. For example, Leicester are paying Andi Weimann £93,000 a week, while Hull are paying Nathan Redmond £94,000 a week. These are mid-table clubs. And neither player is playing particularly well.

If this is the kind of crap I have to endure I'd prefer less tycoons.

Playing FCUtdWills level 11 database, Wooton Blue Cross got taken over early in the first season by a tycoon (level 11 club).

Since then, they finished 3rd in the first season and have won 3 consecutive promotions - wage bill dwarfs the other clubs in the divisions they have been in - they even paid a transfer fees in level 11 (only £12k and under but, still, unheard of at that level)..

Chewy - This was the first season in FM14 so it was the 13/14 season when WBC got taken over. Playing with a large database.

I actually set the game up as a "just for laughs" holiday game - before I started it I edited the database to put Man Utd in level 11 (Manchester League) and holidayed through to see if they could get back to the PL. I set up the preferences to advise me of any takeovers and this is how I found out about WBC's tycoon.

Holidayed through 4 seasons so far and Man Utd are in Northern Premier League Div 1 South now and the likes of Mata,Fellaini and Van Persie etc are still with them lol!

Hey Luafc,

Sounds interesting what year is that save in and what kind of database size have you got?

Oh right Luafc11 lol,

it just seems strange that the more amount of players you had on a custom database the harder it is to get a tycoon takeover yet I've had a few happen on a small database as just a test game as to me playing on a small database is something I don't like to do. Also anyone know why you get the message 'tycoon eyes' a club then a few days later it all of a sudden changes to consortium. I'm really keen to get a tycoon game going as a last long term save for fm14 but although I know it's random it does seem they are impossible to get.
