Additional Q&A
Can I take a credit loan?
No, at the moment it is not possible to take a credit loan.
The overdraft shown in the finance screen is relevant just for a negative account balance.

Can the players stats decrease in practice? No, having just minimal stats gains is the worst case.
Players stats will never decrease in practice.

Does it make sense to not let a player practice at all?
No, it doesn't. Not having the player in practice would be wasted skill points.

One of my players lost one point in overall strenght. How is that possible?
A very important factor is the players fitness. If you dont have an eye on it, it will result in a loss in overall strength. As fitness is as important for overall strength as the main skill, every 5-6 points of fitness is about 1 point of overall strength.

Where can I see my opponents team strength?

You can have a look at the last 5 games the manager had.
Also you can try to find out something by doing test games against the other team.

What team lineup and tactic are the best?
The effects of linup and tactics are not really indentified.
There are speculations about it, but those are based mainly on subjective perception.

Yes, players can be sold between the final league game and season transition time.

Why is it not possible to extend the player contracts?
The players contract can be extended not before 22 days until it ends.

How is the overall team value being measured?
The value of the team is being measured by the sale price (not the market value!) of a player.

Is there a chance of a change of the players class (gold, silver, bronze) after a certain time?
No, a bronze player will be a bronze player for his whole career.
A silver player will stay a silver player and a goldie will remain a goldie.

My team value is much higher than the team value of my opponent and I still lost. How does that come?
It is very hard to tell if the other team is strong or not by the market value. Players don't loose strenght but a lot of value when age goes 30+. Also you do not know, what players actually were playing. A team can have huge differences in player strenght.
Also luck is a point that is sometimes very reasonable for a win or loss.

As soon as I am bidding on a player at the transfer market, I get outbid. There must be someting wrong... ?!
The visible minimum bid just shows the minimum bid you have to raise. You cannot see the maximum bid the other manager placed for the player, which can be much higher.

A friend is having completely different players on his transfer market. Why is that so?
There is more than one transfer market in the game.
At the start of every season there's a draw for all managers and transfer markets.

I bought a player, but he does not appear in my player roster. Where is he?!
Usually a player should be arriving a few minutes after the purchase. Sometimes it may take a bit longer.

Why is it not possible to sell a player in an auction, the same way as I bought him?
If managers could sell players to other managers, it would be a chance for cheaters.
Multi account managers could sell to each other and make money by that.

Is it possible to see if a player is talented when I check him at the transfer market?
No, it is not possible to see how talented a player actually is.
You'll see that when you let him practice and check the training progress.

What happens if exceed my overdraft limit?
You'll be broke and out of the game.
But this can actually happen under very unlucky circumstances. Maybe a long time of inactivity with a very bad gain/loss situation, but even this only for teams with high player costs, with 30 or more gold players. After one of the last updates it got nearly impossible as the overdraft was raised to 10m goal$.

What kind of player will I get from the daily rewards at the end of the season?
At the moment it will be a young player between 16-18.

Do I need to have just 29 players when I want to pick the bonus or coin player? Or is it possible to have more than 30 players on the roster?
It is possible to have more than 30 players. The Bonus player and Coin player can always be picked, even when you got more than 30 players. When you want to buy players at the transfer market you need to reduce the team to 29 players. Also look at the next question.

There is a team with 30 players, and the manager still bids for another player. How is that possible?
This is a bug in the game which seems really hard to remove. When you bid for a player with 29 players in your team, it is possible to bid for 2 more at the same time, both auctions still need to be running. This is because the game takes the "number" 0 as a number for the players in the auctions, which makes 0-30=31
