    Default Hands On Approach

    Hey guys

    After reading a post on Manager stats I remembered that I wanted to create a thread asking how you improve your hands on approach on your manager profile. Because mine always seems to go down, whatever I do to change it. I would like to know what you have to do to get it back up.

    Cheers

    I'm sure someone will correct me but iirc your hands on approach stat is linked picking the side and team talks. If you're getting your assistant to deal with these then the stat will go down.

    I don't think its that, I think it may be the training you do with your players. I don't really concentrate on training and my hands on is about 3 but I usually pick the team and do the team talks.

    I always pick the team, every game without fail. And I do every teamtalk so It can't be that.

    See, I knew someone would correct me! LOL

    I was pretty sure that I read something that linked hands on approach to team talks and squad selection, oh well clearly I'm making it up!

    If you're doing of all those then it must be training. Have you set up any new training or are all your players on general?

    General I think. I can't be bothered chaging them all.

    that might be why im not really sure how to improve it either and mine tends to go down to about 8-9 in my games and hover around there. I have my own training schedules though

    It can't be any of these as I do all my training, select the team myself although I do refer to the "Ask Assistant" as to who he feels is my best team but I do pick it and I do team talks myself.

    i think its determined by how "hands on" you are with your team. picking own friendlys, own training, picking teams doing your own team talks. renewing all your own player contracts and maybe even the reserve team selection and matches could affect this.

    It's affected by how much is automated in the Manager Option's section.

    i would think it s the way you interact with your players or other managers.
    EX: when a player tell you that he wants first team action
    EX: when a manager talks about your team

    if you are too agressive your stats might go down as you don t show enough professionalism.

    it s just my opinion.

    Cheers for the ideas guys, but I do most of what you've said. Give or take a couple of things but generally everything you've said in this thread, I do with my team.

    I've always thought it was mainly related to training and team talks. As an example, my 'hands on approach' is 19 - I have my own training schedules and pay a reasonable amount of attention to it.

    Right then, youve forced me. Next time I play on FM I'll make a training regime for every player.

    Try managing the reserve and youth teams too - that will sort it!
