    Everyone cut out the abuse and personal comments now.

    Several posts will be under review for infractions.

    I forget which game it was but in a recent RL match, Huddersfield hit the post 3 times and the bar twice whilst the opposition also hit both the post and the bar... REAL-LIFE notice, not the game...

    seems about right to me if your team can hit woodwork 2 or 3 times a game with the odd time hitting it 5+. I don't see it as anything other than "normal" (whatever the hell that is), and I tend to try and correct things tactically/personnel wise either during the game or at HT... My last game, incidentally against Huddersfield, my top scorer hit the woodwork twice in the first-half when it was easier to score... (he also missed a few other "sitters") he got an "angry" at HT and scored in the second half (along with 3 others... )

    theres been quite a few times irl as well when a team or even 1 player has hit the post twice in the space of 30 seconds. With players often looking to put the ball out of reach of the goalkeeper its no surprise that hitting the woodwork isn't rare.

    No mention of the rebound distance either...Tchh!

    There seems to be a sending off in there also, I know its "hard playing against 10 men" but generally that is condisered to lessen your victory chances I would suggest.

    I think a lot of people view the woodwork stat as missing aswell. Im sure if a team won 5-0, and all goals scored went in off the woodwork, the stats would still read woodwork - 5 wouldnt it? Im assuming the people that have the problem think that the 5 woodworks mean that they missed.

    thats actually a good point, i've never thought of that either. I wonder if it does count the if they go in, it should really but then what happens if it hits both posts before either going in or staying out? Does that count as 2?

    Serous reply now, maybe remove the woodwork stat. It serves no purpose - off target is off target whether it hits the post or hits the corner flag. Some rebounds may lead to secondary goal scoring oportunities...or may not. Pointless stat,seemingly controversial too - remove it I suggest. Cant recall Sky Sports logging them and they would log their grandmothers bowel movements if they though someone cared about them.

    Aren't there far too many 1 on 1s being missed in the new patch? I'm also having big issues with injuries despite easy-going training regimes.

    I also seem to have too many players on the receiving end of bad tackles which results in a significant drop in their condition in-game - the opposing team never has such occurrences... it's driving me potty!

    Hey guys, got promoted to the championship last year, but throughout this season all I receive is updates about league 1- player and manager of the month, etc but nothing about the champtionship- not even goal of the month for either leagues

    Apologies if it's been posted before but it's a little annoying. Any way to fix it at all?

    The average woodwork hits per match in 11.3 is around 0.9. That is 0.45 per team, which is 17 per team per season over 38 games.

    So since you used up over 25% of your quota in one match I'd suggest its something specific to your team ;-) An idea - do you have any players who like to "place" their shots? I'm wondering if that PPM encourages aiming for the corner and so increases the likelyhood of hitting either post........beyond that I cant think of anything really.

    Btw I do think the woodwork count is a little high vs RL, but not enough so to lose sleep and delay releases over!

    11.3, still in first season, not got to JUne yet but is this something that happens to everyone or is it 11.2 save games that are up-patched to 11.3, or what, official reply would be much appreciated. I would have thought that if it was a really big problem patch 11.3 1/2 would be in production?

    Finally decided to purchase FM11 and everything was rosy as. That was until I proceeded to patch it to 11.3. The game would not boot from that point. Oh well as I uninstalled the game along with much profanity directed towards my lappy, guess I will be doing the same tonight lol

    no need for a patch, if it turns out you have the problem SI will PM you the fix.
    for the record it doesnt happen to everyone games, its something to do with a non league french team so it wont happen everytime.

    Dynamic League Reputation is either broken or unrealistic and here's why:
    I'm managing 3 teams from the same country, Benfica, Porto and Sporting. In real life they qualified to quarter finals in UEFA CUP while russian clubs didn't and this enables Portugal league reputation to go up and so in real life the 2nd place from portuguese league will allow a direct entrance to champions group while russian reputation goes down.
    In FM2011 all russians club did worse then in real life while my 3 clubs did better then in real life and even managed to win Champions league and Uefa cup. Season ends and i go check how reputation was and portuguese and russian reputation didn't change, portuguese league is still behind russian league. 2nd season starts and the 2nd spot still won't allow direct entrance to champions group.

    the european coefficients are over 5 years, not one, so you would need to consistently outperform Russia to increase reputation

    I just cant get into 11.3, mainly because defending crosses, especially low crosses, is awful.

    My defenders just literally stand there and watch while the opposition player has a tap in. On one memorable occasion, a cross came in from wide, there were no other attackers in the box, my defender decided to turn his back on the ball which then hit his back and went into the net.

    I've been playing FM since CM Italia, and I've never been so disappointed.

    mate the portuguese and russian coefficients are so similar IN REAL LIFE that it only took one year to portuguese coefficient to get higher then russian coefficient. in FM2011 after the first season the portuguese clubs did much better then IRL and the russians did worst then IRL so portuguese coefficient should be higher then russian coefficient and the gap should be even greater BUT in fm2011 after first season portugal is still behind russia. either the coefficients are wrong or bad calculated or it's not even working

    You don't seem to understand how the Co-efficients work.

    Your first season I presume is 2010/11 and this is the season where you outperformed the Russians. The performance during this season and the previous four effect the seedings for the 2012/13 season NOT the 2011/12 season.

    The seedings for the 2011/12 season are decided by years 2005/6, 2006/7, 2007/8, 2008/9 & 2009/10 ie before you start your FM11 save.

    Perhaps this has already been posted as I didn't read this entire thread.... In the patched version I have teams asking to loan a player over and over again after the loan has either (i) been rejected by the team or (ii) been rejected by the player.

    Example (i) - Team A offers to loan a player from team B for a 5K up front payment. Team B says they want 350K up front in rejecting the offer. A few days later Team A makes the exact same offer and it is rejected for the exact same reason. Team A will just keep making the offer until its ability to do so is terminated by the league loan rules.

    Example (ii) - Team A offers to loan Player X from Team B. Team B accepts but Player X doesn't want to go and rejects the loan. A few days later Team A will make the exact same offer for Player X, who will reject the loan again if you give him the chance. And then Team A will make the offer again.

    I wonder how those stats for injuries per match that PaulC posted somehow manage to translate to an average of two forced subs per match in FML due to knocks/injuries. I've just stopped playing FM11 right now because sheer frustration, after having three players stretchered off and two knocked in a match. And the injuries tend to happen in the final half hour of the match (I suppose they must be related to the players' condition), when sometimes I have already performed some subs. I've complained about this regarding the FML ME, and I see it in FM11 as well: the sheer amount of ingame injuries/knocks is horrific (not to mention the players that don't even get a green cross before their names, but somehow suddenly get their condition 30% below everyone else's) and is kind of ruining the game for me, because it just feels too unreallistic. For instance, no matter how injury prone a player is, I doubt that in real life one could get a player stretchered off in all of his first four matches for the club - this has happened to me in my current save, and in two of those occasions he went off injured within the first three minutes of the match.

    (And by the way: no, I don't use hard tackling at all - in fact, the injury thing got so bad that I've altered my tactics to play with 'More Cautious' tackling, although this had no effect at all in the amount of ingame injuries I get).

    The stats shown are for all teams. Individual teams can have more or less depending on many variables.

    Presumably your team is high up the injury table for your league if you are losing 2 players per match?

    A bug still not fixed in 11.3 when playing with another person online:
    After both teams submit their line-ups and enter a game, both are changing their tactical settings.
    One team's submit can cause another's changes all lost!

    This bug never appears in FM10, but in FM11 throughout..

    Sometimes we are, but what annoys me is that this doesn't seem to be a one-off thing (and the injury table doesn't seem to reflect this very well, because many times I have players stretchered off in a match, and they're not injured afterwards - besides, it's not just injuries; knocks are also very annoying, because they end up forcing a sub). This is the second season, and it also happened in the previous season. And like I said, even in FML (which uses the FM match engine) I get the distinct feeling that I get way too many ingame knocks/injuries. At least too much to feel reallistic to me. Maybe I'm mistaken, but it seems to me that this has gotten worse since FM10, and that previously we didn't get as many ingame knocks/injuries.

    I'm running FM 11 through Steam on my Mac and haven't been able to boot the game since the 11.3 patch was downloaded. Is there a fix for this?

    My issue with the 11.3 patch is the number of offside goals. I get at least one goal per game disallowed for offside! My players do have some forward runs, but we're talking Tevez/Pastore/Ronaldo/Hazard so they know what they're doing. Definitely seems more frequent than IRL.

    By contrast, there are hardly any penalties and no handballs. In my game, after 29 matches, I think one team has had five penalties and the remainder 2-3. There are on average about 0.25 penalties per game in top division football so the average should be about four penalties per team, although obviously these should be quite widely distributed in favour of certain teams (principally those on the attack and who dribble into the box).

    Finally, the timing of goals feels wrong. There should be more late goals. IRL, 25% of goals come in the last 15 minutes, and not very many in the first 15 minutes. I often get messages saying that 'Man Utd concede most goals in the first 15 minutes' and some such, and the relevant period is only about 1/20 times in the second half!

    I want to emphasise, though, what a great game it is! Having a ball :-)

    I was just about to mention about goals disallowed, just in case it was just my imagination combined with a couple of isolated runs where I have one (or more) in most out of 4-5 games at a time, mostly to my disadvantage, sometimes costly though I'm in very much a mid-table period so it's not costing me much over the course of a season thankfully, though if I wa involved in a battle at either end it would be more of a problem. While it's not consistent, it does seem to happen a lot, and was wondering whether it was just my perception. Hardly that major a problem but it is one of the more annoying ones I've come across, and I very rarely come across anything that bothers me that much.

    Hadn't noticed anything major in penalties, though now you mentioned it there were only a few in total for the whole of my last season, though didn't think much of it. Aside from that I hadn't noticed much difference with the new patch, which given it was running smoothly anyway is definitely a good thing.

    I didn't play FM 11 much because I thought the game was kind of disappointing so I figured I would wait for the third patch when the game usually gets "fixed". Pretty good so far, but I'm seeing a lot of sliding tackle goals. I've only played 10 games, so maybe it's just a coincidence but I've just watched replays of all the goals so far and 25% of them are sliding knock ins where the defender just stands there and the attacker unnaturally slides in and scores. It looks really silly in 3D. Anyone else experiencing the same?

    Actually, the penalties issue seems worse than I thought: the penalties to date in Premiership, La Liga and Serie A (after 31, 29 and 30 games respectively) are 42, 41 and 41. There are ten matches per round so there should be on average 2.5 penalties per round making a total of (for 30 matches played) c. 75 penalties awarded. Penalties are a much bigger part of real life football than disallowed goals! see http://www.skysports.com/story/0,195...162871,00.html for penalties per game IRL.

    One other issue which is actually more significant as it's more than just cosmetic (I accept that the scorelines and general play are very convincing in the game): job security is FAR higher than it should be. In my current save there are only FIVE managers from the above leagues who aren't 'secure' or safer: two Italian, two Spanish and one English. There's been only one managerial change in the Premiership (Bolton lost Coyle). I want to find a new job having won the Premiership and Champions League at the club I began with, but I can't find a team in the top division that wants me, except clubs in the relegation zone. Why?

    My only feedback is that Ive been playing FM for 11 years and this has to be the worst ME ive ever experienced. All around, too many issues IMO. Mainly the fact that defenders dont do jack...Might as well play one at the back, wouldnt make a difference really..They just stand there and let attackers past them, and cant clear a ball when its crossed into the box. SI, pull the but plug out

    Do you never for a second consider that the tactics/players/choices that you select are the cause of some of what you experience?

    Your idea that the 11.3 ME is worse than previous versions is simply ridiculous, have you even gone back and tried the other MEs? Its not perfect, it never will be be but it has improved significantly in recent years.

    Personally I don't see my defenders "just stand there" as you put it, or least I don't recall it and I see my defenders clearing lots of crosses in every match.

    I noticed this as well. Either this, or my defenders not tracking runners and letting attackers have tap-ins from crosses.

    What's really stuck out for me is the sheer avoidability of the goals I concede. I wouldnt mind so much if the opposition snatched a point with a moment of genius or even a well worked goal, but its not, at least in the games I played. Most opposition goals seemed to me to be cheap. I was conceding goals that were so easily avoidable if a defender had even tried to perform his duties.

    I tried various settings and defensive tactics, but nothing I could do would get my international class defenders performing their duties properly. I'd love to know what people do to avoid this, seriously, if anyone knows how to get defenders defending crosses properly, please let me know.

    Anyhow, I've stopped playing now because of this, which is an incredible wrench given I have played every version since CM Italia in the early 90s. But its either that or boil up in frustration.

    Given that cross completion in 11.3's ME is around 18% ( see above ), I think its safe to say that the vast majority of crosses are being defended in some way, is it not?

    My sample size is admittedly a lot smaller, I could only manage about 20 games with 11.3. And maybe its because my full backs were more attacking, or had low concentration, anticipation or marking (even though 14 isnt that low).

    Whatever the reason, it just seemed to me as if crosses that defenders should be favourites to clear were too often left for strikers to convert. The last 5 games I played had the opposition scoring 4 goals from 7 shots, and 3 of them came when a defender simply stood still and let the striker slide or run past him. The other one came when a cross came into the box and the opposition had no players in the box at all, and my centre back (Skrtel) decided to run away from the ball and it hit his back and it went in the net. That had me pounding a cushion in frustration and I havent loaded the game up since.

    I know I'm no tactical yoda, but playing nearly 20 versions of the same game I'd like to think I know something. But I just cant work out this version.

    Yes, it will never be perfect as much as I wish it was. We just try to make it as good as possible and hopefully the majority come back and buy it next time

    From a personal point of view I'm as happy with the ME in 11.3 as I have been with any release.

    A few days ago, i started a new save with Benfica just to try out different tactics, after 3 friendlies i saved right before a game against Porto for the portuguese super cup.

    Everytime .. and i mean .. EVERY SINGLE TIME i was completely crushed, not necessarily with goals, but with statistics because nothing would work, over 10 different tactics (including the same Porto uses just to see what would happen) against only 1 and my team looked like amateurs.

    In real life when these two play against each other we never know what's going to happen, anyone can win, doesn't matter the circumstances .. it's all about pride due to the existente rivalry. Last season Porto had already lost the championship and they still won 3 - 1 at home, Benfica won 1 - 0 at home playing with a bunch of 3rd choice players, this season Porto wrecked Benfica 5 - 0 at home and lost 0 - 2 also at home for the cup.

    The quality of the teams is similar, and nobody was playing at home .. so why do they always end up with 20 something shots and higher possession (way higher..) and all around playing better than my team? Incredibly fluid football even before the season starts..? Does the Tactic Familiarity Levels feature apply to AI teams? Oh and by the way, everytime there was a penalty was against me, i'm not exaggerating, honestly, usually some really awkward ones ..

    Now .. I AM NOT looking for a flawless tactic, no .. i was, though, looking for a tactic that at least neutralizes some of their players, hell, even a 1 - 1 would make me a little happy.

    The point is, it's hard to believe that not even one of those +10 tactics can be successful against the one they use.



    Edit: Forgot to say, there was a game where they only had 7 shots at target .. how it ended? i lost 5 - 1 .. yeah

    With the 11.3 patch, I'm having an extremely difficult time getting work permits for players who have been playing in the UK for years. Transfers for Zhirkov (from Chelsea) and Sandro (from Tottenham) were both cancelled due to work permits, and I'm now unable to get Robbie Findley (25 caps) on a new contract due to his work permit application being declined (with no option to appeal). I'm currently in my 3rd Premier League season and I'm in 4th place, so it doesn't seem to make a whole lot of sense that an American player I've had for 4 years and signed when I was a Championship side now can't get a work permit.

    My main complaint is still the sheer amount of injuries during matches. It's not just my imagination. I just tried starting a save on a top club (Inter) in order to perform a small test, because I usually always play LLM-style. So I thought that perhaps it was the kind of football played in the English lower leagues, plus bad pitches and inefficient physical preparation of the players that could be causing these injuries. Nope. Inter has top training facilities, great coaches, the pitches in Serie A are good, yet I've played six official matches so far, and had five players stretchered off, plus three knocks (green crosses; I'm not counting the other knocks that just lower the players' condition). Like I said: this seems excessive and unreallistic.

    So since you used up over 25% of your quota in one match I'd suggest its something specific to your team ;-) An idea - do you have any players who like to "place" their shots? I'm wondering if that PPM encourages aiming for the corner and so increases the likelyhood of hitting either post........beyond that I cant think of anything really.

    Sorry, should have explained.

    Its the results of running 2010-11 in 11.3 with full ME detail on all the leagues, and with me as an unemployed manager on holiday.

    I was convinced that those were actually real life statistics... I thought that it was a bit steep to have one major injury every two matches, but if that is FM data, then it's explained.

    Regarding my current save, it's now mid November and I'm counting fourteen players stretchered off during a match. That's fourteen major injuries in 21 matches played. I've been watching football for nearly 30 years, and in all this time I don't think I can remember many matches where there were multiple players from the same team getting a serious injury. It only took one third of a season in FM11 to have it happening three times already.

    I don't mean to be annoying, but I guess I'd just like to read that SI is at least looking into this. Like I said, I also play FML, which seems to be a bit of a test tube for future FM releases, and I also see this excessive injury thing there, so I'd like to think that there was a slight chance of this being toned down for FM12. Honestly, it's ruining the game for me.

    Goncalo, what is the average number of players out with injury in your game, in the league you play in? My rule of thumb is the average per team over a season should be 3.5-4 at any one time.

    How about centre midfielders' average ratings and goal ratios? I feel both are too low at the moment. Playing a 442 and my CMs, despite having offensive duties, barely assist and score exclusively from long shots.

    Thanks for your reply, Paul.

    The last time I checked was way higher than that. I had 6 players injured, and I was near the bottom of the injury table. The top team was Juventus, with 11 players injured (I'm playing in Serie A in this save).

    Edit: I've just checked, I still have 6 players injured, and there are six teams above me. The team with the most injured players is currently Fiorentina, with nine. The current average for all 20 teams in Serie A is close to 5 players.

    As I've been saying, it's not so much the number of injuries that I find annoying. It's the fact that they seem to happen way too often during matches. The injuries and the knocks end up forcing too many subs, which obviously ends up interfering with the tactical aspects: many times I end up not performing tactical subs because of the injuries, or simply because I'm too afraid of using all subs and then getting a player injured when there are no subs left. If the injuries happened in training, I could believe that the problem was due to my training schedules, or the training facilities. But since they happen during matches, and I don't even use hard tackling, I really don't know what can I do to prevent them. And like I also said before, the injury table isn't a very accurate way of assessing this, because many times I get players stretchered off during a match, and afterwards they don't get to stay injured.

    11.3 basically making Italian Serie A unplayable.

    Staring in July 2011, AI treats 2010's signing as 2011's, 2011's signing as 2012's and do on, making signing non-EU players (as from Brazil like Italians club often did) is becoming very hard and unrealistic.
    But ironically by reporting this issue, not only i got ignored, but eventually i sensed mild hostile from other senior members; It's like loving a gitl that don't love you back and treat you like an enemy...

    I would like to point out that there is a serious goalkeeper bug in the latest 2 versions of the patches that I haven't noticed since playing the game back in 07.
    There is a goal kick bug where usually once or twice a game if a team's goalkeeper instructions is set to kick long then they oppositons strikers get clean through attempts on goal from perfect knockdown headers from the midfielders from the halfway line. It looks quite an obvious bug and it consisently happens in games so I would like to know if this has been noticed or is there a way I can report it. It is a very annoying bug especially as its a very easy way for my team to score goals especially with very quick forwards like Javier Hernandez and also I have to keep my goal kick instructions to 'defender collect' which avoids the bug but not for the computer AI.

    Does anyone still have problems with game crashing during match day?, reason i am asking is because there is a 50% risk that my game crash when about to start the game (when it switch to 3d) and to be honest i would like to think that after 3 patches problems like this would had been solved. I also still get crashes now and then if i during the game check a players positions. I am sick and tired of that SI can't fix even the simplest errors, when fm12 comes out i was gonna wait for the last patch to come out before purchasing the game, now i wonder if i should buy the game at all since SI don't bother fix the game before moving onto next years game.

    edit: sadly SI isn't the only game company these days that doesn't care about releasing games and patches that work, it is geting more and more common unfortunatly.

    If this had happened to us during testing we'd have delayed the release until we'd found the cause. Unfortunately for you, since it didnt turn up in testing, and isnt happening to the vast majority of users, it may well be some problem relating to your own set up. Have you posted about this in the bugs forum? Our guys are usually pretty good at helping people track this sort of stuff down.

    Its likely the issue is related to drivers or something on your machine.

    If it were a bug in the game this forum would be inundated with people suffering the same problem.....

    So well worth trying for help in the bugs forum IMHO.

    No one was being hostile towards you. I've played in Serie A from game start to 2017 without experiencing this bug and no one else had either. (On 11.3)

    Don't think this is a patch issue but would really appreciate it if someone replied to me with this. Just won the Conference (Blue Square Premier) and when I won it I didn't get anything on my news feed about Crawley winning or a feed about Board being delighted etc. Why is this?

    Thank you for trying to help but i keep my computer updated and fresh all the time, just have reinstalled the whole thing a few weeks ago and made sure i updated all the drivers then. I think i've just had enough to be honest, tried to replay the game three times, it crash in second half every time. Thank you SI for all the fun but i am out.

    The problem isn't the -average- woodwork stats, but the fact that when your team is in a run of bad form or your strikers are, they hit -anything- but the goal and so you can have stats like 17 shots 1 at goal and 5-6 woodwork, 7 ccc and stuff like that... but score is still zero. And it never goes away! The game is unbalanced because the player's mentalities are way too fragile. Imho, it should be just as difficult achieving good motivation in a match as it should be missing completely and making your professional footbalers nervous or complacent. The standard should be "ok", not "the worst in the history of football OR congratulations your squad now all became X-men with superpowers" as it is now.

    That seems to be the trend in general with the ME - everything is on a giant swing that goes one way and then instantly to the other. You'll tend to get a string of red cards together (and then none), a string of 'big' injuries together (and then none), which is why people notice and think its unbalanced. On average, over the season, it won't be (which SI back up with the figures they work towards), but when it gets down to breaking it down, they do appear too 'clumped' together. There's no real random factor in effect.

SI, pull the but plug out
    I tried to make a really really all-out-attack 1-5-4 tactic. It was pretty good in defense, but the attacking play was appaling...

    So since you used up over 25% of your quota in one match I'd suggest its something specific to your team ;-) An idea - do you have any players who like to "place" their shots? I'm wondering if that PPM encourages aiming for the corner and so increases the likelyhood of hitting either post........beyond that I cant think of anything really.
    And the highest number of shots against the woodwork for a Premier League team in 2010 was just 20. The average was significantly lower meaning that it's unrealistically high in FM.

    BTW, I'm averaging nearly a shot against the woodwork per game and I don't have a single striker who "places their shots." I'd wager that the quota (as you put it) for human players is significantly higher than that for AI teams and likely has something to do with the game's ridiculous use of "complacency" as a mechanism for regulating team performance.

    I'd wager you are wrong!

    But I do think our woodwork count may be a tad high, but hardly a gamebreaker.

    First 10 games of new season hit woodwork 10 times. I usually have at least 1 goal a game disallowed for offside as well, yet all games still won.

    I can't find mention of this issue elsewhere, so maybe it's just me....

    I'm playing in the Norwegian 2nd Division and at the end of the season (end of October) I'm seeing a ton of managerial sackings worldwide. In the space of two months maybe 200 or so.

    Now, I understand that on a worldwide scale managerial sackings happen a lot, but presumably mainly in the close seasons? In this case almost half of each division in England has turned over their manager, which I might expect in May / June, but certanly not in November / December.

    Is this a bug?

    Sorry to resurrect a REALLY old thread (which I haven't read all the way through because it's massive) but I just thought I'd make my own points about 11.3 which I recently downloaded.

    My biggest objection is the loan system when you're at a really small club. It stands to reason that a club like Lincoln don't really have any funds to spend on transfers, yet trying to loan players from PL clubs under 18s still costs a very substantial fee, as well as the player's wages on occasion. In reality, the big clubs would be happy to see the youngsters get some first team football, so they'd cover the wages. I'm not suggesting that players worth millions and paid several thousand in the reserves should be available without loan fees, but 17 year olds on a a few hundred quid should be available for nothing.

    Other than that, my next biggest complaint is players who've been out of contract for a couple of years retiring rather than signing for a smaller club they didn't initially want to sign for.

    For what it's worth, the loan deals frustrated me that much that I decided to uninstall and go back to the disc version. Loan fees are fine for other PL and Championship clubs IMO, but not below that. After all, if the club don't want the player to go to a club in LG2 they can just reject the offer.

    It all balances out. The chances of two players being injured on the same play in FM is unrealistically low.

    Problems for me - Although none are game killers because I realise that the AI has to break your tactics at some point.

    1. Conceding from set pieces. It seems no matter what setup you have or what players you have the set pieces or are always the achilles heel. I'd say the vast majority of my goals against come from set pieces regardless of which setup I use. I always have a tall back line with good jumping, heading and determination stats for the division I'm in but they don't really seem to count for much, especially when you have dominated the match. What's most frustrating is that you can do nothing about it at all and the more you play the game the more obvious it gets that it's going to happen. Lost count of the amount of times I've let a goal in during injury time when a 5ft nothing striker has got between my 6ft plus defenders to head home a winner.

    2. Opposition teams scoring way too many long range efforts when the players scoring the goals have low stats for shooting from range. Just had a guy score two 25/30 yard screamers with a long shots stat of 7. My CM with long range stat of 15 has not scored from outside the box in 2 seasons, seems a bit of a pointless stat to have if it counts for very little in the match engine. I very rarely play the game with top division clubs or with real players as it gets too boring so I'd like to know if this only happens in the lower leagues or whether it's universal throughout the game.

    3. Cup games and team weighting (If that's the right terminology) - Lower rep AI teams always performing better against higher rep user teams....OK cup shocks happen IRL but not every single game. The AI v AI team results seem plausible but the AI v User are a bit far fetched, it's not always a struggle IRL. Could do with a tweak in my opinion. I got a replay after play Arsenal at home in the FA cup when I was in the Blue Square South and drawing 2-2. Fantastic that I got a the cash for a return game at the Emirates but hardly likely to happen IRL is it. Likewise my Mid table league 1 team just lost to a Mid/Low table Blue Square South team 3-1.....all their goals from corners. I'd not conceeded a corner for 3 matches prior to this one. I just can't work that out :-) Is it just me this happens too ?!?!?!?

    4. Horrendous drops in morale and form of players is a big issue for me too. Had a player score about 10 goals in 8 games and them suddenly his confidence is shot away (perhaps because some irrelevant AI manager made a comment about him, I can't really remember, it's happened so often I've stopped paying attention) then and as quickly as that he can't hit a barn door with a banjo and have to drop him to the reserves so he can get scoring again.

    As I said at the start of the post it's all part of the game (and that's what it is...just a game) but I would like to think that the game developers might be a bit more subtle in the ways that they get the AI to break your tactics. Seems just a bit lazy to me if I'm honest.

    Would like to know what others think on these points.

    If you have a good tactical defensive setup and good defenders then set pieces will prob account for the bulk of your goals against because your open play defending is so good. Are you letting in more than other teams? Try different set piece orders or maybe try not giving up as many set pieces.


    2. Opposition teams scoring way too many long range efforts when the players scoring the goals have low stats for shooting from range. Just had a guy score two 25/30 yard screamers with a long shots stat of 7.

    Again linked to your defending, because the opposition can't find the space to open the defence they take more long shots. You stop them by not giving them the space to take the shots, close them down, put pressure on the shooters. Its also worth saying - Goals from outside the area happen in real life every week in every league around the world.

Cup games and team weighting (If that's the right terminology) - Lower rep AI teams always performing better against higher rep user teams....OK cup shocks happen IRL but not every single game.

    I do seem to have more problems in cup games against underdogs but I also have matches where I cruise through with few problems, swings & roundabouts.


    4. Horrendous drops in morale and form of players is a big issue for me too. Had a player score about 10 goals in 8 games and them suddenly his confidence is shot away (perhaps because some irrelevant AI manager made a comment about him, I can't really remember, it's happened so often I've stopped paying attention) then and as quickly as that he can't hit a barn door with a banjo and have to drop him to the reserves so he can get scoring again.
    Form goes up & form goes down, if a player is in good form its only going to go in one direction its just a question of when.

    Hahah good point well made.

    However my team having a bad run of form shouldn't really make a player akin to Emile Heskey suddenly becoming Ronald Koeman from range or make a Bilbo Baggins'esque striker leap 5 ft off the ground..........Only Zola could do that :-)

    Like I say the game does have to break your tactics and it doesn't stop me playing the game I just wish they could be a little more inventive in future updates.

    I've tweaked my attacking corner setup to try and NOT score so many and as if by magic I'm conceding far less of them too, maybe that's just coincidence but it was quite instant so perhaps they are linked. I also have a theory that the more chances you create the less you actually score, especially at lower league level, bit anti-football but seems to work. This is probably for another thread though........

    1. Height/Jumping isn't everything, short players can (and frequently do) score headers if they have enough space/time, so maybe look over your settings? It's been confirmed that corners are a little too effective in FM11 though, so if you have an otherwise solid team, you can make use of the defending set pieces match prep to protect against this.

    2. Probably fluke, or a combination of that and these players getting in better positions than your CM to take good long shots. Are you defending the space between defense and midfield properly? Weather conditions also have an influence here, and again, Long Shots is not the only attribute in play.

    3. The ME does not differentiate between AI v AI and AI v User matchups at the highest detail level, so probably just coincidence (or related to defending corners, judging by that BSS team result?). I do see (and am involved in) upsets, but not unusually frequently.

    4. There used to be an issue where your best attacker was targeted before every single league game, keeping his morale rock bottom, but this was fixed in a patch. Occasional comments shouldn't really make it plummet, just drop a notch or two, which you can easily counter-act with some player interaction. Keep playing him and keep his morale up and media attention shouldn't make a big dent in his form.

    Do you maybe have the game running while trying to patch it? Make sure it's closed when you run the patch.
