Can you not select him to play every game though?
He's in my Ajax save, so for once I'm not managing rangers, although I've drawn them twice in three years in the CL. I don't know what would happen picking a greyed out player every week, he'd eventually disappear right?

No. I’ve frequently started with less than 11 in the squad and the same grey players are available for most of the season. Good thing is that they don’t complain, don’t get injured and even when sent off, don’t get suspended. And they are always 100% fit

Do they perform as their stats suggest they should? I've never owned one worth playing.

Greyed out players have negative CA. This means they perform better than their stats suggest, because the cosmetic values formula is biased towards high CA players.

However, in this case, I think some bug happenend and this player has a positive CA. Otherwise, if his CA is really negative, then his worst CA-related attribute (creativity = 10) would represent at least a 30 intrinsic value and his best attribute (dribbling = 20) would represent at least a 100 intrinsic value, and I think thats impossible to have a player with all intrinsic values above 30.

Note: by negative CA i mean really negative (not random as in pre-game editor negative CA). I confirmed that in debug mode in olly, if you read the CA of a greyed out player while the game is running, its negative. I think it goes from -1 to -200.

There was a bug on one of the old fm's around fm14 or fm15

many greyed out players had world class attribute sets and on fm's you can offer them contracts but after a patch though it was fixed and they never turned up on a save again

seeing this insane greyed out left back reminded me of that

even on the original game .60 many seasons in you occasionally see freak greyed out players at one particular club. Might of been a Russian team i played in a european game and they had a striker who nearly had all 20's

Hard to say. I've only ever been at a crap club and the grey players I've had have also been crap. I don't remember any being particularly bad or good, but I have used the same ones for game after game

Now I'm wondering what the American Express Community would look like. Pinstripe suits presumably, wondering around looking for the only restaurant in town that will take their card.

I saw some people on Facebook posting a prize in France for "Most Unpopular player" - is that a real thing in game or some sort of patch? What type of player wins that prize?

Yes, it's real. I think it is 'awarded' to the player with the most disciplinary ponts.

Notice anything about this Celtic pre-season friendly team (first season)?

Jack Hendry is on loan in Belgium yet somehow started the game and played 90 minutes for the Bhoys :lol:

Maybe a benefit game as Jack is also an ex Thistle player

More remarkable is that Tam O'Ware appears to have lasted 90 minutes without getting injured and Banzo without getting booked.

I've had worse starts to a season

Image

15 clean sheets and we were 3-0 up before Bangu scored, which makes it 75 goals without reply !
My striker bagged 31 of them including a 6 goal haul.

It's actually worse than that given subs bolingoli and bayo are also at other clubs on loan. But as everyone north of the border knows, Celtic get to play under different rules from the rest of Scotland.

Probably a friendly before the game “started” with you as manager? The same happens if you start the game with Anderlecht with the latest update. They play a Intertoto game before you actually take over and all the set loans kick in. Almost the entire team that plays the Intertoto game is on loan to a team.

indeed a game bug. Players loaned out appear in matches at the original club before the game offically starts.

No, I'd already started in the English National League with Stockport County. I was looking for a cheap centre back and went to the Celtic squad to shortlist Hendry himself when I noticed it.

I'm in my second season now and the game hasn't had any weird bugs that I've noticed. Didn't sign Hendry in the end :)

EDIT: I think I understand what people are saying now - I looked back at the Celtic fixtures and the friendly took place on July 7th which is/was before the game started for me as I loaded the English National League as my primary league.
