Idiotic A.I.
So this is NOT a rant about the dodgy match engine. I've become so used to getting screwed over by it that I don't even get bothered about it anymore.

This IS, however, a rant about the dumbass A.I. who wants my bright young player on loan and offers me a loan fee. I gladly accept the offer hoping that my lad will get game time and improve. So what happens? Boom! ♥♥♥♥♥♥ A.I. backs out of deal at the last ♥♥♥♥ing moment because of 'lack of funds'. What the ♥♥♥♥?!? What the flying ♥♥♥♥?!?!?! If you can't ♥♥♥♥ing afford to pay the ♥♥♥♥ing loan fee, which by the way the A.I. offered, why the ♥♥♥♥ you bid? What's worse is when I offer the player up for loan again, the same ♥♥♥♥ing team offers me the same ♥♥♥♥ing deal. Also, there's no real way to know if a team can afford to pay ♥♥♥♥ing 50k loan fee. ♥♥♥♥ you.

Another problem with the dumbass A.I. that I have which is also regarding the loaning of the player is that I get offered a deal where it says that my player will be a key player for them. Great right? No! He doesn't even get a chance on the ♥♥♥♥ing bench. What the ♥♥♥♥?!? Why would you want to loan my player, saying that he will be a key man for you, and then just not play him. ♥♥♥♥ you.

I don't see the second one as a major problem (there's always recall clause), but the first one is a definite bug. It's been reported on SI forums and already fixed in the next patch.

If only they'd release it.

Because no has EVER told porkies to a player regarding their importance to the club to get them to sign.

yeah, i never did loan a player promising him first team only for him to be a "just in case" sub :p

Patch is out.
Also, teams in lower divisions generally have poorer managers, and therefore are more likely to not know what the hell they are doing regarding transfers.

^Patch is for ME mostly. Still having this problem. Also, are you for real? You think lower league manager are a bunch of dumb monkeys who don't know how much money they have? I like fm series too but I'm not blind to it's problems and don't feel the need to justify them by making up ridiculous comparisons with real life.
