I know the solution mate. What you need to do is if say it's the Russian Premier League you want, go to Russia under countries (on the far left) and you'll see a box at the bottom for a map and 2 longer boxes on the right. You need to put something in those boxes as these are the background for the top of the league table. I hope you understand what i mean. If you don't i can get some screenshots if you want.
In this 1st shot i clicked on country (circled in red, top left) and i've circled the 2 boxes i referred to. Just fill these boxes with anything, even if its just a blank white strip and it'll work fine. Both boxes measure 512 x 128
This 2nd shot shows the texture in the 2nd of the 2 boxes in cm08 is the background in the bar at the top of the league table, and also shows the league table is now working fine.
drac234cpfc- I'm guessing the Irish patch is for Northern Ireland because if it is the Republic of Ireland, the textures are already present. If this is the case, my advice is to create some new textures, but if you're not that good at making things just export the Republic textures and import them to Northern Ireland as a temporary measure.
I hope all of this helps, I've certainly found this useful since I worked it out as you can look at league tables for your created leagues now.
