Just started 2016 with the winter update. Started with Inter with the lowest experience.

Barbosa looks decent?

Gabriel Barbosa is great. Andrija Zivkovic has high potential and you can get him for free for next season. Gonçala Guedes and Gerson Santos da Silva ended up as good players in my safe.

Used to play back in the early 2000s

Won Serie A with US Salernitana 1919

Got poached by AC Milan, then moved on to Barcelona, all in the same game

The game was accidentally lost during a windows upgrade. I was heartbroken and nearly cried. It was like losing a pet.

Stupid af.

"I find it weird that it's still a problem in football so we decided to try and show people that coming out isn't a big deal and can be a positive thing".

Curious as to how this game developer thinks players coming out in a video game will in any way impact how people feel in real life.

Pandering to the witch hunt I see. Don't people ever consider the realistic possibility that there aren't any? FM is really getting unnecessarily political with this and the Brexit additions.

At least they decided to say that it can only apply to made up characters to avoid any libel issues.

It'd be extremely naive to think there are no homesexual players in a sport that has tens of thousands practicing professionals across the globe.

Read this last week -
Carl Hoefkens says "it is a pity" that being gay remains taboo in football and says he played alongside two gay players during his time in England.

Agreed

The whole BREXIT thing was just someone angry over the vote. Countries leaving over the EU, foreign player limits in the squad lol

I meant in England, where homosexuals make up only 1% of the population. Statistically it is more than likely that with the small number of professional footballers around, that there simply aren't any. And even if they are, the media's witch hunt to sniff one out won't want them to because they'll end up with the left wing media fawning over them all the time and also be subject to harmless banter from the fans every game.

Just a way for Miles whatever to come on the radio.

Just as with BREXIT, just a bid to get attention. We all know there are gay players, but until they come out, it's stupid to include them.

You can guess his political motivation. Independent Gibraltar which has hard borders with Spain and England lol.
