    Making CBs go forward during open play

    Teams/City max capacity stadiums

    I've been thinking about starting a save with Bournemouth, spending the PL TV-money on building a huge stadium and of course youth facilities, but then I remembered on an older version of FM the City council of Newcastle refused me to increase the stadium capacity to more than around 60k or so...

    Leverkusen - no B-team or u23 team

    As the title says, we only have senior squad and u19 squad in the first season, some teams have B-teams/2nd teams, but I'm pretty sure there is a u23 league in germany. Is there a possibility I can suddenly get a 2nd team later on in the save? or do I have to add something via editor before...

    fitness exploit for EL/CL when loading leagues as view-only

When you dont attend matches they are not detailed enough for you to see stats later and teams dont seem to lose as much fitness. If you do...

    According to my limited experience looking for this, the answer is no, or possibly very slow. I borrowed this pic from another user here who has a pic from the editor or scout program Every category under "Mental traits" I have noticed changing through tutoring, but those listed under "Hidden...

    Nerd Q: Youth players XP Points u18/u21/Int.nat games

    This is something I've always wondered but never asked, nerd question alert!: Youth players raise attributes faster from playing well. Naturally, a 17yr old gettin avg 8,5 in u21 will be better for his development than getting 8,5 rating in a u18 game. Even better if he gets 8,5 in a first time...

    AI teams relegated, prices on their players increases!

    So, I'm managing in Norway and IK Start got relegated after the 1st season. I won the league and wanted to buy K. Ajer. I figured since his team got relegated his value might decrease and his team feel the need to sell him cheaper as their revenues would be less after relegation. Before the...

    Old players becoming coaches

    Hi, I've tried a bit back and forth with recommending an older player that he become a coach when he hangs up his boots. The player agrees and asks if I want him to make himself available right now. I've tried saving the game before asking him that, and agreeing to him becoming a coach/getting...
