    Hi, everything is good but there is one important problem, I am managing Juventus, and at the end of the month I faced a terrible picture, of course it's natural for us to lose money, but I don't think it's normal to gain £186k and lose £961k, this is the first time I've experienced this career and I have not face to such a profit and loss statement in my past careers,is this a bug or what, I never understood where this money went.can you inform me about this, my club will go bankrupt in 2 months :) (No transfer costs)

    @elhazel this is the no attribute masking version he made and released on 26 august

    At the time there was only 3 players allowed on the bench in English Leagues
  • elhazel's avatar
    The bench only fit for 3 players.. Is is a bug or at that year we are only allowed for three subs at bench? I'm playing English Premier League btw
  • elhazel's avatar
    First of all, amazing work! But is there a version where attribute masking is off?

    the players in the database are great but there is no good staff
  • Graeme55's avatar
    @FMhistoricalDB The database is great work. The monthly awards still have English Premier league, Championship etc and maybe use real name club fixes if possible. Also maybe add staff and players to English Third and Forth Divisions.

    lovely work, if it had even more depth like portuguese, brazil, uruguay, and much more would be amazing, i hope this is just the begining :)
