Just wanted to say how excited I am for the beginning of the new season and that I can't wait to start playing again.

When will the transfer window open?
13A1N (Tottenham Hotspur) 2 years ago
I would like to know this too, but don't look forward to making headache decisions...
Thias (Chelsea) 3 years ago
Are there any good defenders for less than 2 mil?
ManOnDMoon (Manchester City) 3 years ago
You can buy good ones for 3m but at the start of the season/game. I don't think there are players for less than 3m - others might confirm or correct that

Hey, would you please check Casillas, he kept a clean sheet against Athletic Bilbao but I didn't get any points.
Also, I have Puyol and Pique, and they did not get points for the clean sheet against Real Zaragoza.

Gmann7 (Barcelona) 3 years ago
Also, Chiellini didn't get points for Juventus's clean sheet against Lazio Roma    (actually, nevermind about Chiellini)
Coyb18 (Chelsea) 3 years ago
Neither Casillas, Puyol, nor Pique played this weekend bud.... Sorry to burst your bubble

Oops, my bad
Topaless (Juventus) 3 years ago
Is it possible to check the Di maria'S assist vs Levante this week-end. Last goal, an assist for Ozil? And then I must benefit 5 points more than here taking in consideration

Please ignore. Found my mistake

Next season will we be able to pick players from the French league Ligue 1?
Matt (Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
There are no plans to add further leagues at this point
AidanLuca (Tottenham Hotspur) 3 years ago

Yesterday around 14:00, I made an emergency transfer (before the europa league matches)
Gareth bale (1 goals) and Yanga Mbiwa (cleen sheet with newcastle).
This morning, I have received no points? I thought emergency transfers were immediately ready?
Thank you

Hello Franboy well normally, you should start earning points from the next saving point onwards which is this saturday, since you got them this week
Franboy (Barcelona) 3 years ago
Hello Matt, thank you for the update mata (midfielder). No problems for his last game, he has received (3 points clean sheet)
However, it has not yet received (clean sheet) for these two games :

17/02/13 Chelsea 4-0 Brentford 10
Played part of this match + 2
Winning team + 3
1 Goal Scored + 5

14/02/13 ac Sparta Praha 0-1 Chelsea 5
Played part of this match + 2
Winning team + 3
Coyb18 (Chelsea) 3 years ago
Hey Matt and all!

Just wanted to make a suggestion. What if we made it:

2 points for playing part of the match.

1 point for coming as a sub.

I think this would give more of a fair balance to players who get picked to start.

Let me know what you think!
Coyb18 (Chelsea) 3 years ago
And also maybe taking off points for own goals? If a yellow card is negative, an own goal probably warrants something like that too no?

Anyway, hope to hear back
Coyb18 (Chelsea) 3 years ago
Will take this as a "no"! Lol
Otame (Barcelona) 3 years ago
Hello everyone, when is the next transfer window, thus far I only had one, thx
Matt (Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
The answer is in the FAQ which is linked in the big pink box here!

However I am feeling nice so:

Window 3: 6/4/2013 - 13/4/2013
Kfgscores (Juventus) 3 years ago
Dear Admins,

I too have Mata as my star midfielder player and he is not getting any clean sheet points. I even used up my emergency transfer window to put him as the star player so I am very disappointed that I cannot compete with the other players for the top positions with this unwarranted handicap - every point counts so it's frustrating and spoils the fun in an otherwise fantastic football fantasy system.

I look forward to a favourable solution and thank you in advance for reviewing the case
Tanmay (Footytube Moderator) 3 years ago
Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Mata listed as an attacker in the DF listings? No clean sheet points for attackers, only mids and defenders.

Edit: ah I see your problem - Mata's status has been changed from mid to attacker. That's being discussed below; I'm sure someone better informed than me will answer that question shortly
Matt (Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
Mata's position was changed in the transfer window.

I do see your problem so the easiest solution will be to put him back to Midfield and give everyone the points. This way the worst that can happen is someone gains.

Expect to see this on your points total in the next few days.

Much Obliged
ElGaucho (AC Milan) 3 years ago
Thanks Matt
Franboy (Barcelona) 3 years ago
Hello, I bought juan mata in September or October. It was midfielder I paid 13 million. During this transfer window he became attacker (for 19 million). I do not get why more cleen shet for him (against bucharest and brendford).
This is not normal because mata is still midfielder in my team since begining. I feel that I should always have mata as a midfielder. Can not change the status of former player. In this case why the prices do not vary them?

When many people have chosen the coach "carrera" of juventus 3 million, they did not pay the difference? It was a good investment for them because if we wanted carrera later, we had to pay more.

This is the same for mata, the advantage of choosing him from the beginning of the dice game as midfielder should remain an advantage?

Thank you for answer
ElGaucho (AC Milan) 3 years ago
Dear All,

I have the same issue.... Can this post be answered please? We bought Mata when he was a midfielder and thus expect him to get points for the clean sheets.

Thanks for looking into this
RealFan (Real Madrid) 3 years ago
I'm having the same problem! I'm being heavily effected because its really close in the top 15
Pioneercolonel (Manchester United) 3 years ago
Hi Matt. I remember you saying that keeping Careera for Juve was OK. So why am I not receiving points for his matches anymore?  Cheers
Ordaye (Liverpool) 3 years ago
I asked Matt this question during the transfer and he replied "Managers no longer in the game will need to be replaced so you can earn points from the manager position". That is why you are not receiving points for Carrera.
Tony (footytube staff) 3 years ago
I had the same question from another user, I told him I will ask matt tomorrow as he is seldom online at the weekends, and his wife is overdue their baby, so panic ye not.... Lol, leave all the panic to matt
Matt (Footytube Staff) 3 years ago

OK sorry if I gave you that impression but the rules are:

If a manager leaves the team for whatever reason you will keep earning points for the team actions upto and until the next transfer window after the window the manager is removed from the game and will no longer earn you points.

I hope this clears it up
Malik (Barcelona) 3 years ago
@ Matt, Carrera wasn’t sacked exactly, it was just a replacement, so IMO carrera should have been replaced with cnote in our DF, don’t you feel same?
Matt (Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
Sacked, left, retired or abducted by aliens all adds up to the same thing a new name above the door and on the DF list!
Malik (Barcelona) 3 years ago
Thanks for the reply, but still I feel he should be replaced with cnote, or at least provide us option to change him before his point loss become material figure
St1or (Barcelona) 3 years ago
I agree.... People took a gamble on certain players and after it paid off, everyone else is trying to join the bandwagon.... Which they have. I've seen so many people with Bayern + Chelsea + Juve players now and the mata + carrera dilema especially are hurting my points!
Tanmay (Footytube Moderator) 3 years ago
Just speaking as a df player here - you guys have all had a massive boost getting Carrera for 3m. Would be lovely if the windfall could continue but if anything you have the unfair advantage!
Malik (Barcelona) 3 years ago
Not same with every one, I paid 10 M for him, which is average price of good manager
Pioneercolonel (Manchester United) 3 years ago
Matt mate that isn't fair. I could have changed him for another manager during the transfer window. I was misinformed. Anyway you can make a reconsideration? I'm sure I'm not the only one
