    Best of luck AJ, I've never managed in Finland, or any Scandinavian country for that matter, I need to change that!

    Definitely a continental flavour to them, San Marino guy included too

    You just needed to play greyed out players, that does the job. Not ideal but it's the only thing you can do. Don't throw in the towel so easily I had to do the same for my first 4 games.

    So are we knocking out the alphabet between us all or is it a race to 26 trophies?

    It'd be easy between us all, surely?

    Let's go for it individually

    I've saved the game and brought it home with me for the weekend - GF working lates so plenty of CM time

    Can I ask you both what you are doing with the leagues that you are not playing ?

    If you have them in foreground, the game takes an age in processing between matches
    If you have them in background, clubs that sack managers don't employ new ones, so when you come to look for a job there are hundreds to choose from

    It has been a dilemma of mine, and decided to take the pain of running all leagues foreground in the sake of realism. What are you both doing ?

    I never realised that actually, I put the other leagues as background and will put them on selected leagues again when I need a job.

    There must have been? AI always puts the remaining space in the squad as greyed out players in the reserves?

    Maybe you needed to include the reserves for that.

    The only time that I've seen no greyed out players is in Spain/Portugal/Germany where the clubs have B teams. The B teams have the grey players, but you can't get at them.
    Doesn't explain your problem though.

    After applying for every job available I ended up in the dungeons of Russian Football, at a club called Dolgoprudny who have neither enough players nor cash. Let's try again.

    So about a month into the game (virtual month) i find myself in a very similar position to mark.
    Davor Suker is one of only 5 coaches interested in joining me as my Assistant.
    The seasons opening 3 games were a bit of a mixed bag, starting with a 1-1 draw away at Mladost Zdralovi. and a heavy 3-0 defeat at Pomorac.
    This was quickly followed by a win in the Croatian cup against Mosor.

    Also like mark my feeble scout was beginning to bring home some youths to bolster the rapidly diminishing squad.


    also with 7 players leaving the squad i was starting to make my mark here at Primorac.
    Hopefully a similar policy would soon start to reap its rewards.
    The game continues.

    Stumbled across this guy whilst searching for loanees.

    Yet to concede a goal... HAHAHA

    We'll see about that



    Just as i expected. conceded 5 on his home debut

    so 8 games in and things are taking shape, but after crashing out of the cup, and only one promotion spot on offer silverware looks unlikely this season.

    After a very, very busy transfer period, I've managed to convince two players to come play for our broke-ass shitclub. Most of my players are 35+, got two 40+ in the starting line up.

    My reserves seem a bunch of dwarves, everyone has heading 1. Pffft. Not gonna be a cruise.

    You using Tapani patch, AJ?

    Nice to see you at the same club pyro! I had a load of player/coaches interested but I don't bother with those.

    I'll continue my save game when I get in from Stoke!

    That's fixed in the latest Tapani patch, as far as I know
