Was looking to start a discussion on board request mechanics and wanted to know everyone's experience and have 2 main questions at the end of this post.
I think the most useful tool managing a lower league club is to get a parent club to loan players from but I have very mixed responses from the board when trying to do this to the point now I almost feel it is pure chance whether or not you get accepted. My club are always usually in financial trouble when I start a save, so I request a parent club; sometimes this is accepted straight off the bat but when they begin their search for a club they fail to find a suitable club.

Other times they reject the initial request but I convince them about extra income etc.and they agree...then they fail to find a club.
The third scenario is they reject the request, then reject all arguments I put forward about income, being left behind by rivals and even rejected my requests as I threaten to leave after all I've done for the club (back to back promotions). (I have given my manager the best persuasive stats btw).

1. Finding a parent club - what are the mechanics and factors that contribute to the success of this?
Club location? Club Reputation? My Reputation? Or is this just random luck?
2. Acceptance of request - despite being in crippling financial debt they still reject income arguments; does anyone know the mechanics behind this process? It seems crazy they'd put all these options to convince the board in but none of them work. Am I missing a correct order to submit them?

Anyone else have advice/experience of this?
