    Since this new update, I can't see any players on the Transfer/Youth Intake screen - just the same thing you're experiencing JayDee10 - I wonder if this is being experienced by anyone else.

    Since 20.2.0 update, I can't see any transfers/newgens listed when accessing from 'World-world-transfer' tabs. Not sure if it is a bug but I am just into January and I could do with seeing when youth candidates are joining new clubs. Is anybody else having this issue? TIA.

    Good morning everyone
    Short question from my side, maybe some of you experience the same "failure". I updated FM this morning and apparently the logos have changed the format somehow. I've used the standard logo pack. I changed the skin several times even to the standard fm ones, but all look the same. I cleared cache as well. Maybe someone has an idea what has changed.
    Thanks and all the best
