to buy a player on another team is terrifying. It costs how many times their estimated value?

How come there is such a discrepency when selling players? I doubt I could even get double for high skilled players, let alone anything like the amount I’d have to bid on non-transfer listed players.

Having a limit on the number of players in a squad, and the real loss in money when trying to sell someone is just a bit harsh atm.

the vote was interesting, I would say that players who are 36+ should not be expecting wages the same as they got in their prime. Significantly less wages, and 1 or 2 year contracts.

Yes, sort on ability is broken if there happens to be a guy with 100 skill.

However, my thing seems to be working better today…

I’ve been messing about with the scouting reports, and now I noticed that the most recent reports are not viewable.

Can you add in an Age (turns)" column like you have put on the Coaching Report?

It’s been like this for a few ticks, and the same result has been at the top of the page each time. I’ve got no idea which reports are the newest (I delete the in-game email messages).

so I just got a youth keeper. He looks like he’ll be alright, though is obviously Class E, so my question is:

How do I best develop him so that he reaches his potential as efficiently as possible?

Obviously there is no way I can play him in games in the Premier League.

Nor would anyone loan for him, so no point hoping someone would loan for him and play him in any games.

Is all I can do is put Coaching Investments to 10?

why is it that when I initially browse to, that the page I am greeted by is inconsistent?

Often, I need to:
- click on the drop down menu on the right
- scroll down a bit
- then click on ok to submit my username/password that is saved

Like, too much work man. Can we just have the username/password/submit button on the top or something? 1 mouse click, not all the extra mentioned above for no good reason.

Just make the interface simple to log in.

You know, i still have no idea how to win a match in this game.

Over a season, my squad often gets high enough to make cup matches. Ao i mostly win. Sometimes my exact same line up and rules make me lose 0-3 at home to far inferior npc teams.

I have zero ability to understand why? Why does a squad overall go great, but fail so miserably. No consistency.

How do i make good decisions and understand when 4x defenders is advantageous over 3 or 5?

Do you understand what i am trying to say?

I still find it rude when a team, accepts a friendly invitation at their home, but ignores a corresponding invitation for away.

I guess the money is no different, but I still feel disrespected and ripped off.

Can we get either:
- the ability to request friendlies with NPC teams and NATIONAL teams
- submit a friendly invitation request, and it automatically creates a home and away game, and the requester can select which dates they are requesting. Thus the requestee can see both dates and decide if they want to accept or not, and do NOT get the option to delete 1 date, but can ONLY delete both.

I got screwed in 2 games where I lost at home 0-6 in total, missed out on getting to Champions League next season and getting into position to win Euro League.

Rather than swear heavily, started looking at what I can do to fix up stuff I see.

Well, I did swear heavily too.

the Player -> Traits page has a small bug. This page does not allow you to organise the players list by ‘Class’.

It is the 3rd main reason to look at this page, so would be nice to view players by their class.

If I buy a player I already have a scout report on, can you please not delete it?

So frustrating. Especially as the coach report is not capable of providing the information on the secondary skills (assuming my scout report includes that).

Maybe just dump that info in the Notes at time of purchase?

I manager a mid level ranked country National squad. When I replace players, would be handy to have more information onscreen to be able to make better decisions:

- country rank the player plays in
- Average Rating
- main statistics from the current/previous year:
– Goals
– Tackles
– Assists
- Traits, including the stupid ones

I seem to be going backwards and forwards, and find it inefficient to work out who to move into the team. The process is:
- find the worst guy in a position
- click replace
- select a new guy
- try to find him in the players screen
- check the average rating, see how bad it is
- open up his stats
- work out his country rank
- decide if his stats are good enough
- work out if the player traits are shitty
and repeat the entire process a bunch of times

Just thinking the replace player list screen could add some extra information to make it more efficient.

With another Liverpool player in the World Team of the Season, and now that he is retiring, I would love to have link to a Liverpool Hall of Fame Page.

Will be great to go somewhere and see the great Liverpool players of the past, and their statistics, awards, history, etc.

I guess other teams can have their own Hall of Fame too. I suppose…

Yep, I have assumed what Dimitri said. However, letting me send a scout to go check out a dude, on my team or any team, would be a great start.

Once again, Liverpool’s finest, Matteo Giovannetti, is the deserving Keeper on the World Team of the Season!

Without Matteo, Liverpool would barely be mid level in the Premier League. Throughout his career, he has dominated in the most adverse of circumstances. Matteo has constantly held up the Liverpool Defensive unit, the Midfield and me the coach. Simultaneously Matteo has repeatedly given the Strikers a chance to make a difference in each and every game, including receiving Assist statistics. Matteo does it all!

Thank you yet again from the entire Liverpool family. Matteo’s Liverpool Hall of Fame credentials are already set, and I plan on convincing him to play another year!

if I employ scouts, would be great to use them to give me accurate information, lest what is the point of having them?

Adding the ability to provide more information for managers is a good thing. Yes, it adds to the workload of being a manager, but I prefer to have the opportunity to be information rich.

If I get a youth player who looks like someone to retain in the squad, I currently have no idea about his secondary stats potential. Seems weird, as I can use a scout to tell me about secondary stats.

But being able to direct my scouts to look at a certain player, team, league, country, rank of country, etc seems fair. All I hear in this game is ‘its what happens in real life’ when I complain about getting stupid, unnecessary negative traits on players, so making the managers ability to focus scouts like real life seems reasonable.

Why do i know less about my players potential stats than i do players i can scout on other teams?

I only see my players main position potential stat, whereas i could set my scouts to search for players across multiple potential stats.

Also, why cant i send a scout to look at a particular player, rather than just let them go randomly?

Can i get more scout search options? Search for good only, search for not having particular negative traits, search for players in particular country ranking levels?

The substitution rule was Wuttke to sub in at half time at 45min mark.

Yes, I understand exactly what you are saying. However, what I am saying is:

In any match, after minute 45, replace the player on zone D, side RC and mentality 1 by “player x”

and in the match:

46 min: “player x” (h) replaces “player y” (h)

I have seen variants of up to 3 minutes difference. Therefore, the substitutions I made at 55min have occurred at 58 min mark.

This is not consistent, but its enough that some of my players have missed receiving the benefits of playing a match.

Previously I’ve asked about substitutions, and was told they happen when scheduled.

I’ve noticed that has changed.

Some subs occur a few minutes late, which is a problem. Some of my players have now played under 35 minutes and thus get no bonus for the game.

Is this a thing?

just saw a team that has 1.2mil in wages for just their top 6 players. Whoever the manager was, is gone, just wondering what happens to balance this up?

just wondering why Primorac Stobrec used their worst Goalkeeper in their last 2 Champions League finals games?

They had 2 keepers rated much higher on the squad, one of which played all the previous Champions League games.

This fail move handed finals advancement to Napoli far too easy.

As a byproduct, my awesome Goalkeeper that I loaned to them, did not get to play 2 Champions League games.

its a terrible day when I see a message with “Player Trait Developed”
Would ease the burden if you also added which trait was developed in the email.
I can never remember what they had previously.
