Loaded up my Newcastle save last night and noticed taht Oba Martins stats had dropped by 1 or 2 points for various attributes. I thought this might have to do something with his training schedule, but i also noticed that his preferred foot is now left, yet throughout the game it had been either.

Any ideas why this has happened?

Nope, no in game editing has gone on.

The only thing i have have done has put myself on the Database as a youth player.

it may well be that u r playing him on the left constantly?? if his right foot was ''reasonable'' in position, it could well have went to ''weak'' coz he aint using it. try retraining that side in training.

i play him in a central position in a 4411 formation, so really, this should make him use both feet equally. His right foot has only went down to "fairly strong" but with his massive stat drops, it seems like his CA has plunged for some reason.

One of the various idiocies about such a high weighting for two-footedness is this...

it happened to me also, one of my player's stats went down for 1 after a week in pre-season. but i did increase his weak foot ability so i can acept it.

don't have a clue what happened in your case. if his WFA went down, then i would expect some stats to go up, not the other way around!? i'm very courious about this..

Not if his CA went down considerably, which is what I imagine happened here.
