  1. I think emirates was 2004 The board request was being accepted from 2026, at least, but planning permission was rejected.
  2. Lool Yeah I hear you But I called my manager Abou Diaby Board chose that legend in the end Diaby Park flows better I believe.
  3. One for the long term arsenal managers. So i've Been looking online for years about solutions for arsenal building a new stadium, I couldn't find much info. Yes I know the emirates is fairly new, but personally. especially when arsenal are doing well, I believe its a poorly designed Stadium when focussing on capacity and possible future expansions (its hard to get arsenal tickets). Anyways in game I have never been able to get the board to build a new stadium to increase capacity. Searching online I've not found anyone who has succeeding either. But After 8 seasons and 2 or 3 failed planning applications (they take 2 years to be rejected) construction has finally began. So if you're trying to get a new stadium there is hope keep trying, keep applying.
  4. Funny how people supporting these instances are basing their support on Faith or low paying jobs having unions Please can you just show some evidence that suggest this happens or a quote from anyone supporting something like this happens. And if you can’t please stop replying and let SI guys explain where they got the idea from. thanks I believe SI have got the feedback that players support unhappy players and then just thought of things players get unhappy about. the 2 instances separately make sense. but putting squad player upset because he is not getting a pay rise with other players telling the hierarchy to give the “SQUAD” player a new contract is something that hasn’t been seen before (in real life in top flight football)! And if somebody has seen this please please please share. I can imagine players wanting to tie down important players That i can see happening Can’t imagine anyone telling arteta give Holding a new deal or we won’t be happy.
  5. Yeah personally I get it when it’s a Star player Osieman a year and 3 months after signing a 4.5 year deal wants a new deal. the man is a star player and had like 30-40 goals at the time. if I said no I understand key players coming and being like “sir are you sure you want our star man unhappy” but Kiwior squad player asking for a new deal with 3.5-4.5 years left on his contract and players telling me give him the double wage increase he wants. Well that’s just not something I can see happening. It’s always the young players and the unprofessional players coming to complain too. Then the team leaders will come.
  6. You've written a lot to highlight a part that i'm not talking about. Being afraid a VITAL member of the team will leave is very much acceptable in game. I specifically highlighted SQUAD player. the player has plenty time left on his contract and I wanna know where and when you have gone to management about only 1 person and told management to increase that one persons wage. Not union style everybody's wage should increase. Stop throwing in different scenarios to back up something that doesn't happen. No my point is Players don't negotiate other players contracts. Agents do that. https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/danny-rose-fined-two-weeks-10968080 Show me who backed him or who he backed up for more wages since he's the only man to actually make noise about wages. Yes football/sport is a different spectrum to ordinary people. look at other big not paid enough wage disputes in sports Scotty Pippen. Superstar player... who backed him from the locker room? All you hear is that between him the club and his agent. Of course there's a possibility that someone might put on their superman cape and speak out. But the absence of any stories emerging means this possibility is an outlier not the norm. Being an outlier, only a select few personalities would plausibly do this. Maybe high loyalty high controversy poor temperament poor professionalism. Because it's not very perfessional Dr Dre V Eazy E style telling the manager to scrap the existing contract with 3 more years left. In game it happens at least once a season per at my club, one can only assume it happens to other ai contolled teams too. Which makes it's occurrence very unrealistic.
  7. Sancho this season, Ali Spurs all or nothing Van persie at arsenal before United move, Henry at arsenal before barca move Bent Aston Villa, When they got benteke manager told him he has nothing to worry about they'll both play. All off the top of my head. So yes these things trickle into the media especially when people are disgruntled about what's happened. You can stop replying now. because I know all that brain power is better spent researching questions that make sense to you. Hmmmm, so 10 plus years of fining players for poor performances. But... you would be "Surprised", I get it some people follow blindly and don't question. good for you.
  8. I can tell your analytical skills are very good. Lets change my question to Since there's no, or seldom any, examples of players getting involve in other players contracts (unless they are relatives) in real life why is it seen in the game so often? And now you no longer need to ponder
  9. Right? Its Interesting when people find Sterling's payslip Interesting when Danny Rose berates Spurs for not giving players fair wages Interesting When Ashley Cole says he nearly crashes his car when arsenal offer him a low wage But!!!! Not interesting when half the squad in unhappy the Bench boy 7 who just signed a 4 year contract hasn't been offered another contract. That's not interesting??? Ahhhh and in these meetings the players told them the blood oath kept secret that when 1 player wants a contract all his friends get involved and lay siege to the manager or DOF causing unrest in the squad until their buddy gets that new contract? Please please please do quote that section This argument is literally "I know there's no clear evidence or indication or story that proves it happens. BUT since you're not there you can't say it doesn't happen" Let's run with your stance. The fact it's not known to happen means its rare at top clubs or ex players and managers would have spoken about it and got the media coverage too. Your statement about Small teams seems off. It's all relative If a player Is good relative to the league he's playing in he can get away with being a diva... the higher up you get the better you have to be to get away with it.
  10. When was the last time you were in a team meeting telling management to pay 1 person more?
  11. What a nonsense question If it happened then there would be inklings and whispers of it filtering out to the public... There would be stories from former/present players Stories from owners and managers The shear absence of any of that only backs up that its highly unlikely that it actually happens and if it does its extremely seldom especially at the top level of "English" football if not worldwide football How about you think before you say "how do you know?" Or how about you ask SI how do they know this nonsense happens, since it happens so regularly in game but is never heard about in real life. Small if any evidence of something happening but throw it in game lavishly and state realism.
  12. This is actually ridiculous because the more money you have in your wage budget The more players/agents tend to ask from you.
  13. Exactly even the, “let this player leave” squad backing never makes sense. I’ve never heard pim when zaha couldn’t leave palace, when Luiz couldn’t leave villa or when paulinha couldn’t leave Fulham. all this whole squad is upset is really not realistic. fines and the team revolts ok yeah makes sense. Contract though!??? Never heard a rumour about managers under pressure because one player in the squad hasn’t got a better contract. Even Danny Rose who spoke out about spurs not matching wages didn’t get the type of backing that comes in this game.
  14. Sorry this utterly baffles me. I’ve never heard anything about other players making noise about players getting new contracts. So why is this in the game? SI have gotten rid of fines and other things that help the player under the premise of “realism” what’s realistic about a squad player getting backed by 5 players saying give him a new contract????? Where has SI conjured up this nonsense? What’s the explanation
  15. Hi don’t know if this has been stated but just started the game and noticed that scout report cards still don’t show attributes. I think for the last 3 instalments the majority of people believe when scouting a player attributes are the most important thing and it shouldn’t be a hassle and a waste of time to having to check multiple “i”s to determine if a player is even worth considering further. When we scout a player the first and second reasons are to check attributes & potential it’s only then once we think a player can fit in do we want hidden traits! stats! I don’t think many of us find them useful since players without top attributes rarely transfer good stats when they transfer teams. Maybe this FM24 is different please bring back attributes to the report cards! ASAP!
