I've just become aware after digging around a lot and trying different simulated leagues in the PES 2016 that there seems to be no way as there is in other sports games of getting to the winter transfer window and making all the changes in my league that may happen in real life. Surprised how few people seem to care about following real transactions like I do in my other sports games.
So is there a PC program that will allow me to move players around when the January transfers happen so I can get my league to reflect real life squad changes for my team and the other CPU teams in my league?
Found this today on PC Gamer:

Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 might be getting a free-to-play version

The word on the street is that Konami's Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 is going free to play. And by "street," I mean the Australian government's videogame classification website, which just yesterday slapped a "G" rating on something called Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 Free To Play.

PES 2016 fared not horribly in our October review, although we knocked it for being a poor port that lacked the quality of its console cousins. You can judge that for yourself, to an extent, through the demo available on Steam. But if the Aussies are correct, another no-money-down option may soon be available.

Konami hasn't commented on the listing, but it appears that the free-to-play edition will exist alongside the regular release, since they're rated separately on the Australian classification site. It's also possible that it will be released only in certain regions of the world, similar to EA's FIFA Online 3, as there is currently no listing for a free-to-play version on the ESRB website.

Then again, it seems unlikely that Konami would rate the game in Australia if it didn't plan on making it available elsewhere. I've emailed Konami for more information, and will update when I receive a reply.

Not only is pes2016 too fast at game speed -2 but also it is very easy to dribble past defenders and score even at the superstar level. This because there is too much gap for you to exploit unlike pes2015 which is much more compact. I have reverted playing pes2015 as pes2016 is just too easy. Most of my games ended with relatively high score,without once in stalemate. I hope Konami will come out with a patch or somethingOThe gameplay needs some urgent tweaking and addressing. Pes 2016 does not give you the kind of real football feeling. Pes 2015 is more competitive than pes2016. When you win a game in pes15 you feel happy and satisfied especially after a tough game Not pes 16 cos it is so easy to win just by running past defenders and score. Nothing spectacular as there is not much dribbling skill required as just a couple of taps and turns will create the opportunity. Also whilst speeding it is quite easy to score by hitting a long shot. All in all pes 2016 is not as competitive as pes2015.
It's interesting to listen what can you say about this.
Dear Adam,

I realize that this a most unusual and very old fashioned way of contacting you. Iím not on Twitter and what i want to say is longer than what is possible on Twitter. So i write an open letter publish it on Evo-web and hope it somehow reaches you.

Who am i? I am a 53 year old Belgian (not a native English speaker, so forgive me for all the incorrect English). I play the game since PES 1 and a couple of months ago somebody on Evo-web called me one of the 4 biggest PES fanboys on this site. So itís safe to say that iím rather positively inclined towards the game.

Before i go further with this letter, i have to say something important. I know Adam, that you have received lots of personal insults in the past years. That is absurd. Nobody deserves internet thrashing. Iím also convinced that you have played a major role in the big steps forward that the franchise had made the last two years. Thank you very much for doing this.

Nevertheless, this is an open letter with complaints. Donít take it personally, i see you as some sort of go between between the European fans and the Konami hierarchy in Japan. In my professional life i have learned that complaints are not a nuisance, but an opportunity to make progress.

Do we have reason to complain as PES costumers? I think we have, even as fanatics of a sports gameÖ We got to admit, that buying a sports game year after year will always be some sort of rip-off. Fanatics like me buy the game yearly because they want to have the EPL with Bournemouth and not with QPR. We want Carpi in Serie A and Las Palmas in La Liga. This is the reason why each year we pay 60 euroís and less so because the gameplay has evolved (there seem to be hunderds of people who still play PES6 and do these yearly updates themselves).

What we also want, and what is among the bare essentials of sports games, is having the correct squad rosters. We expect them on launchday, maybe not in the game but at least with DLC on the first day. As a fanatic iíve pre-ordered the game and i was very disappointed when i saw that not a single transfer was done and that we had to wait more than a month for roster updates via DLC. As a long time customer i think this is unacceptable. Iím convinced that you feel exactly the same about this as most customers. After all, the last two years the franchise has taken giant leaps forwards gameplaywise, but this is totally overshadowed by something that should be merely cosmeticÖ On the various forums there are people who are able to do all the transfers in one or two daysÖso this should certainly be possible for professionals. Konami let us down here.

People who donít have the time to do all this editing have waited for end octobre to begin their ML campaigns in order to have the correct sqaud rosters. We now know that even this was not possible for Konami. What happened is that once again a game was released too soon. Konami focused only on My Club and a release before FIFA16 and treated itís customers like ordinary cash cows. This is inadmissable. Since PES1, i have bought every single game (on PS, Xbox and portable) even if the gameplay was attrocious (and you of all people knows that the lastgen games were attrocious, you saved us from that misery). We donít deserve this.

Konami should think about a form of compensation for this most unprofessional behaviour (and iím not thinking about some balls and boots, iím thinking about a real compensation: extra game modes or extra leagues).

Should i mention the F-word and the EA-company? Yes i should. In the PS2 days Konami was the underdog and i forgvave them for the lack of licenses, i changed Roberto Larcosí name and Merseyside Blue, because i had an abundance of timeÖ and because Konami was the underdog. But underdogs take care of their costumers. Do you think we feel spoiled since PES6, Adam? I think you know the answer to this question. I donít blame you for it, but iím adressing you to pass the message to JapanÖ

Itís time Konami develops a totally different marketing strategy. Most fans have enough of the announcement of an announcement about an upcoming patch or DLC. The people who buy all your games and who really care about the franchise are hurt by the general sloppyness of Konami. Shall i give you a recent example?

A couple of days ago there was another annoucement of an announcement of upcoming DLC. As some sort of teaser Konami publishes pictures of Italy and Spain and their new kits. The first reaction of the fan is genuinely enthousiasm. Great, two licensed teams! But then you take a closer look and (thanks to the fantastich player models) you observe Veratti on the Italian national team picture. And then you see he has number 5 on his shorts and number 10 on his shirt. Is this important? Frankly and as a reasonable person (i hope so), no it isnít. But itís one of the hunderds of litle things that are wrong. Shall i give you another example? I Already said that iím Belgian. For Japanese people we are far away and a tiny litle country. At the moment i write this, we are number one on the FIFA ranking. When i look at the Belgian squad i nthe game, i see players who have stopped as international (Ciman and i remeber well Van Buyten) or players who arenít selected anymore (Vandenborre). There is one Belgian team in the game. As a Belgian football fan i would like to see a licensed Jupiler League, but i do understand that Konami has other priorities. After all we are a small country and (more important) a small market. So i can understand the decision to include only one Belgian team (but didnít there used to be two Belgian teams?). Somebody at Konami opted for champions AA Gent. This is an excellent choice, that team are Belgian champions. Letís take a look at the squad roster now. Does Gent have superstars? No. The team has good players. One of them is upcoming talent Brecht De Jaegere. He is an AMF, SMF or sometimes WB. In the game he is a CB. He never, ever played as a CB. This is the equivalent of the Real Madrid roster with Cristiano Ronaldo as a CB. IMO this is outrageous. AA Gent and the way the team is treated in the game is the benchmark for PES in BelgiumÖ Sadly, it turns out to be a big failure and thus a marketing disasterÖ

Is each of these examples essential? Once again: no. Gameplay is essential and the game has taken a giant leap forward gameplaywise (athough i would love to see more fouls and still havenít got a single penalty). Iím very happy with the gameplay. The examples that i mention are details, but there are dozens of details Konami got totally wrong. Another example: iím playing a ML with Atletico Madrid. And in my first 7 matches, i only got one home gameÖLitle glitches like that spoil the game. The people who ďmakeĒ the gameplay and people like you, donít deserve this.

I guess this letter must sound very negative to you. Iím truly sorry about this. You donít deserve this after all the efforts youíve made to make PES a better game. Perhaps i should end this letter on a positive note and try to offer som advice for the future. As a longstanding fan of the franchise, i feel i have the right to do that.

What should you do next year?

Release the game when itís finished, even if that is only in november.
Release a game that is similar to the demo and that doesnít change after every patrch or DLC.
Give a forum (= a server) to the community who edits things like kits, stadiums, balls and other things. If this isnít possible due to licensing issues, communicate about it with the fans. This is important.
Release a game with the correct squad rosters and this for each and every team. Surely in every country there are people who want to help you. I would do it for free for Belgian teams, and thousands of other people would do the same thing.
Give us valuable DLC (new leagues).
Try to have as much licensed leagues as possible, and why not go for leagues from litle football countries. There are thousands of players who like to play with other teams than AC Milan and Manchester United.
Give us more stadiums.
Make the game much more customizable (why isnít it possible to have a European team with the Saitana stadium as home stadium in the ML?).
Why not use gameplay sliders?
Have an eye for details. They are less important than gameplay, but they do matter. EA has an ey for details.
Donít accept personal insults, but listen to fans who care about the franchise. We are your future, even old men like me.
Take a look at the NBA2K franchise. That is an example of how a sports game should be.

I wish you and your colleagues luck with future editions of this great franchise, even if my wife will not agree with that statement.

Thanks for all the hard work and for listening to me.
