Back in the days when Football Manager was known as 'Championship Manager', there was a player development system whereby players that retired would come back as another young player. This young player would turn out to have the same attributes & position as the retired player, but would come back under a different name. Basically, the player was regenerated by the game - hence the term 'regen'.

A new player development system was introduced a few years ago, where players were no longer regenerated. Under this system, when a player retired, he was replaced by a new player that was completely different to the retiring player. Then, the system was changed again so that generation of players was not linked to retirement. After this alteration, the database size could fluctuate a lot more. Because of this, 'regens' is no longer the appropriate name for these players. Instead, they are called FREDs. They gained this name when, when the new feature was being introduced, a member of the Sports Interactive team was asked what the new players were to be referred as. It became apparent that there was no official name, so he suggested the term 'FREDs' to be used.

Nonetheless, they are still commonly referred to as regens despite this not being the accurate term.

Regens come into the game at different times, depending on the country. For instance, all the English teams get completely new regens on the 25th of June. Here is the full list of when regens are put into the game; these dates are based on previous game versions and therefore subject to change, if you spot any errors please post the change in date/s

Greyed-Out players are basically gap-fillers. These are players that are put into your team whilst you don't have enough players, to ensure that every match can be played. You can offer contracts to your own greyed-out players, but not to other teams. As soon as you have enough players to field a full team the grey players will disappear, never to be seen again.

Much appreciated!

These dates are incorrect. England gets the youth intake in March, not June.

so is it just England or all dates that are incorrect??
