2015-04-06 14:44#211273'Brandon Barker he is ready, he has the build, the talent, the mentality.'While I understand that you're trying to take a more 'realistic' approach to this story in terms of player ability and potential, if the above statement holds true in your savefile then surely you've edited Barker's current and/or potential ability? From my understanding he's pretty average in the default FM15 database.
EDIT: Whoops, almost forgot to wish you luck with this story! As a Man City fan I'm excited to see where this goes.
