Cant start a new career with squads and staff from the beginning of the season

Recommended Posts

Hi, I wanted to know if its possible to start a game with the squads that were active when the transfer window closed in September. For example if I start a new game now Ronald Koeman isnt Everton manager but that isnt realistic when starting a new game because he was fired by Everton during the season.

I believe this feature was available in previous versions of FM

Squads are possible, more or less. Untick the checkbox that says 'make transfer budget available at start of season' or whatever it's called. Squads can't buy players until the next transfer period. Free and loan transfers will still happen, though.

Sacked managers will stay sacked.

Hmm thanks Zek, it really should be available though because its not realistic to start the season with managers that weren't managing the team at that point of the season.

So if I started a new career next year in February will all the January transfers and manager changes be active?

You can choose at that point francis whether you want to use the starting database (this one) or the January update.

 

If you load the Brazilian league (or some others) you can choose to start the game with the current database, just before the January window opens.  It sort of achieves what you want, albeit with a later starting date (and half way through a season..!)

You can usually find a third party database with all current changes available in either the Editor's Hideaway forum or the informal FM websites

Surely it's easy enough to use the free pre-game editor to put managers back at their clubs for the start of the season? I don't know why people bother though, the game begins its own universe as soon as you press continue on the first day. If you put Koeman back at Everton at the start of the season and he DOESN'T get sacked soon after, surely that would be just as 'unrealistic' for you?

Thanks wasn't aware of that. And its just because I want to start the season with the squads and staff that actually started the season, whatever happens after that is now the in game universe

Problem with this is that I then have to guess the contract lengths as this isnt all available online
