    Mid-aged Brazilian regens??

    Anyone know how/why they pop up in game? It's been like this for a few FM games. Basically, a mid 20s (or in some cases early 30s) Brazilian regen will pop up in a non-league and have abnormally low player value (under a mill) but have really good stats. Most fail to get work permits but I'm...

    Selling off key players?

    Just thought I'd pose this question to see if anyone else has sold their key players for any reason... be debt, unhappiness, etc? I havn't yet, but I'm willing to start a new Arsenal save and sell off Fabregas to bring in many youngsters / prospects for the future. Share yours here!

    Balotelli and Coentrao under-performing?

    I'm on 2014 at the moment, and these two just haven't lived up to their expectations. I regularly play Coentrao in a left-back position and these are his statistics overall: For training I'm using Duncs Medium Workload but his attributes don't seem to be the problem as he's averaging 7.33...
