  1. I submitted a report manager for multiple accounts because the account name is the same for two clubs and they actually manager 2 clubs in multiple worlds. When I submitted it I got an instant pop up saying "not enough evidence". So is there some magic checking process in place that determines these things now? Last time I submitted a report a few years back there was no evidence and then the manager was removed because they were cheating..
  2. Show me a team in the real world that has 20 89-90 rated players happy to sit on the bench reserves. Even Real Madrid can't keep that many layers happy. Its to maintain some sort of realism to the game but keep it fun. Its quite simple really. You can keep a squad of about 21 90+ rated players happy. Any more than that you won't be using and is classed as hogging. As you can see only Casemiro has a concern and that is reducing through game time. I rotate my team to make sure I have a 95/94 rated team out and that everyone gets plenty of game time. In cups I use my highest rate B team against the easier opponents and then mix and max as the opponents get harder. As the season progresses and if I have a good lead in the league I use my strongest team to try and win the cup. The key to keep players match fit is using 3 subs every game and rotating players whilst keeping the squad rating as high as possible. I have a theory its the squad rating that matters than individuals so pay less attention to that when choosing a team. I have high rated reserves to worry about but it's a good problem to have. Instead of moaning "why cant I hoard these players" Im thinking "ok who shall I move on and who is likely to reach higher potential?" Instead of moaning about the system use it to your advantage. Buy the players other managers are forced to sell, don't keep players too long who just end up being a wage sponge on your club. Invest in the next youth players that will come to fruition when you need them
  3. Real Madrid available in GW 1402, id :6028. Lots of teams available, lots of cash to be spent. Hurry before the vultures circle!
  4. Its not a bug in the case of the opening post. SM has decided to make the system work this way. Any active manager knows when their players are likely to rise to the 90 threshold and expect gametime. It's a fairly easy system to manipulate to your benefit. Any smart manager would have offloaded Nasri or Podolski now because they're in decline. Why you haven't played Dembele in the past 10 games before the rise is a mystery to me, Hes only 1 rating worse than those players mentioned, he wouldn't performed much worse at all. You're just paying extra wages to Nasri and or Podolski when you could be saving £60k+ a week. Some of those youths getting concerns seem a bit wrong but its never happened to me. I always loan out as many players to save wages.
  5. You do. I think I had a 10 k stadium to start (Whatever Scun thorpe's original stadium was) and now I'm up to about 40k seats. I have been the manger 9 years though Its funny Scun thorpe is auto filtered, I thought I typoed.
  6. The point of scouting is so that you can pick and choose which players to keep who might hit a high rating and which ones to sell when they've reached peak potential to keep your finances in line (or even profit like I do). I player hoard but I do it smartly. I have about 21 top rated players and barely any concerns. I usually win 3 or more trophies a seasons and have never sold a player forcing a transfer from concerns. I take advantage of bad managers who are forced to sell by snapping up talents that are vastly under priced, keeping them happy for 20 turns and selling them on. I've sold Thiago silva this season and Phillip Lahm is retiring soon so now I'm bringing Casmiro and Bellerin into the first team. John stones and Eric Bailly will be sold after their ratings review. You can either moan about the system or be smart and play the system. This a league with 18/20 teams managed and I have £512m in the bank. I promoted Shorpe from Div 4 to Div 1.
  7. You are a player hoarder pure and simple. This is why concerns were developed. Playing in an empty dead game world why would you even need all those players?!
  8. I know I made this thread but you need to be slightly realistic. You can keep about 21 91+ rated players happy in a year and then use good management skills to bring the youngsters in to the team at the right time and sell the top rated oldies that are beginning to drop. You don't NEED more players than that to be competitive. This isn't fifa ultimate team, you're not supposed to be collecting all the best players. Not to mention you must be killing your club with wages. Player hogging only increases the speed in which a game world empties - who wants to play in a empty game. I'm 99% sure its the average rating of your team that counts so smart management can help with concerns anyhow.
  9. Is Thiago silva likely to -1? I'm calculating when to move him on
  10. Interesting question that I don't have the answer to. I was trying to sell Kompany today and couldn't accept a bid of £22m when the player is worth £19m and I have no deals with this manager this season (if any in previous)...
  11. Jon Obi Mikel - 0 appearances, just retired from professional football to China kept a 90 rating. Where's the laughing so much I'm crying emoji?!
  12. Kompany has played 17 games in 2 season according to wiki, anyone who thinks he should keep a 93 is bananas! I was surprised Cazorla kept his rating and Wilshere too actually. On the whole Arsenal are about right. The starting 11 is slightly higher than Spurs starting 11.
  13. Maybe Arsenal tomorrow then? I noticed Cazorla dropped a few £million in worth the last day or two in gameworlds too.
  14. My guesses: Schweiny -5 (ok more seriously definite drop so probably -1 or 2) Rashford +3 or 4? Lingard +1 Bailly +1 Valancia +1 Schendierlin -1 Depay -1 Ashley Young -1 The ones I havent mentioned are first teamers I assume will stay of youth I've missed.
  15. I'm quite an active manager and pay attention to appearances, generally I give 90 rated players at least 20 appearances a season. I use 3 substitutions every match and try to get as far in cups as possible which helps a lot. It doesn't help that Torres is inflexible position wise. A winger who can also play up front would be easier to slot into your team. I guess if you really like Torres that doesn't help.
  16. Well I am a bit of a player hogger but I manage concerns of squads with about 21 90+ rated players pretty well. I've never lost a player to concerns. That's why I think they're ok as they are.
  17. Indeed, a waste of talent butt £60 mill is good for Chelsea.
  18. Bit young to go to a retirement league at 25/26 but hey ho... money over playing at the top level.
  19. Slightly off topic but my best is Eden Hazard £125k now worth £52 million. Looking forwad to the rest of the risers then to figure out who to hang on to.
  20. Worth £14 million and i paid 240k for him.
  21. I understand your points but they essentially counter act the aim of concerns for players rated 90+ which keeps games worlds interesting because managers have to use players or lose them. The system is reasonable lenient as it is. Having 25 players isn't hoarding, having 25 players over 90 rated would be, that was my point. That's what concerns aim to prevent.
  22. I noticed Eric Bailly went from £14m to £12m suddenly. Wonder if he'll rise again with a ratings increase :/
  23. I appreciate what you're saying but if you're never playing Torres he should be getting concerns. Yes in real life old players are happy to bench warm but in SM there are only a finite number of forwards rated 90+ so if someone never uses them its hoarding. Its to keep the game worlds competitive and alive. Otherwise someone could buy all the old high rated players and never use them without getting concerns. On the flip side you can sometimes pick up a bargain from a hoarder manager who isn't good at balancing play time. Personally I keep 22 players happy rotating and using 3 subs every game. I personally find its the average team rating that seems to matter most rather than individual ratings for chances of winning a match.
  24. How many games has he played for you out of how many league games played? Do you ever actually use him? There is only a finite number of highly rated players in the game..
