    I believe FMTU is the best transfer update. Anyone (with a free member account) can submit missing changes using a user friendly transfer wizard that's much easier to use than the pre-game editor. Then a team of admins approves the submitted changes. 100s of changes are being added daily, while the downloadable update is repacked every night. Check it out at FM Transfer Update. Staff Pick

    Hello - are the transfers in this future-dated? Meaning, David Silva is still on City and will be leaving at the end of current contract, same goes for Gotze, and Icardi is joining PSG officially on July 1 2020?

    Hello! Your work is incredible! Loving the data edit! I noticed that the official Canadian league isn't compatible with your data edit, the troubleshoot suggests that the league requires a maximum of 7 teams but found 8? Possible due to the merging of data?

  • 6Times's avatar
    @JereFere You can go to Steam, go to Library, and under the drop-down box click tools. Go to FM2020 Editor, download. Open and load in the CA/PA changes file, go to Database Changes, and you can see the changes. Alternatively, if you only want to check changes for the club you are managing (i.e. Liverpool), go to Liverpool's page in Database and clubs, and click on a player (Salah), scroll down to Changes, and check the changes.
