At the lower levels, I believe it to be a positive personality because they want to improve so they can move to a bigger club to make more money.  In my mind, that means I can sell them to a bigger club tack on a nice 50% future fee clause and hope the lottery ticket gets cashed if they continue to improve and move to a even bigger club as a result.  I don't want perfect players at the lower levels.  I want players who want to get better.  Mercenaries want to get better.

I agree with you.  This personality seems to hide high ambition in my testing and decent Professionalism.  The same also seems to be true for Fickle.

Spoiler

this is what my testing of real and newgen players (combined) for a mercenary player with media-friendly returns.  The data is from FM20.

So I may have gotten myself in a situation where I'm wondering who do I choose as my HoYD.

266421183_StevieHammell.thumb.png.8b399053d94471ba0a7df8d8b506aadb.png

This is my current HoYD who has a Resolute personality and a Reserved Media Handling Style, but has been at the club for almost 9 years now. He's been responsible for bringing through the side that has been performing really well.

However, I've found a Model Citizen HoYD, who also has a Reserved Media Handling Style. My concern is his tactical style and his age. Other than that, his 4-4-2 formation isn't far from the 4-2-4 formation that I'm currently using. Who would you guys choose in my situation?

Would you mind explaining these weights and showing the full table?

Yes , some personalties have fixed ranges. For example personalty X has 10-20 amb , 15-20 prof. and 17-20 det. Then i calculated how close they are from a perfect personalty (20-20 on everything). It's a indication, your player with balanced personalty could be the best one with everything on 1-14 but in reality he could have 14 for the three most important parts.

Zealand had a video recently on personalities and put together a spreadsheet on what values lead to what personalities and which ones override others.

ACN Siena 1904 - 2031/32 Season Preview

1632476088_SerieBSponsorshipIncome010731.png.84dc4c707bf5337a2bdaa2c0c52ec6f5.png

A new season and a new division. The thing that caught my attention straight away was the sheer difference in the sponsorship income between the teams. In my first season at Siena we had been bringing in £2M, but now we're only bringing in 800K. Not only that, but that are teams that bring in over four times the amount of money in sponsorship income, and twice as much money as my original sponsorship income 10 seasons ago. It was a realisation that this could be a challenge to keep up with the other clubs financially, especially if they, or Serie A clubs, decided to raid our club for some of our best players because of the financial package they could provide.

2103599570_SerieBSeasonPreview010731.png.d087b8d04ae214df43ea8375df67e871.png1217842035_SerieBSeasonPreview100831.png.7b611455474522e61677755b7e4b06ae.png

Another realisation was just how lowly the media predicted that we would do. The predictions on the left are from the 1st July 2031, after all of the loan deals had been ended and it was the first day of the transfer window, the predictions on the right are the 10th August 2031, after a lot of transfer dealings had been made. I knew now, looking at these predictions and how much had been changed just little faith the media had in us after we got promoted last season, despite scoring 100 goals and winning our league by 11 points. There was a reason why most of the teams going up to Serie B ended up getting relegated in the end.

It promised to either be a very hard season, or a season where we could just all-in and just stop caring about the consequences as we knew that we had nothing to lose, since people didn't expect anything from us anyway.

S9 - Ligue 1 (6th) - Coupe de France (10th Rnd)

Squad - U19 - Out on loan - Transfers

 

Transfers 

The very last remaining "real" player, Bijimine, left us. He was getting too old for the group, an age difference of ten years with the second oldest is considerable... Bijimine's expiring contract was not renewed. For the symbolic sum of 55 euros he was even granted a nice last adventure in Cordoba. Leblanc, a youth product of season "0", was also allowed to leave without a transfer fee. He had expressed this wish to the board throughout the previous season to leave on a free. (screen) Leblanc had disappeared into the background the last two years, he hopes to become important again at US Créteil-Lusitanos in the Ligue 2.

Thanks for the eight fruitful seasons! So it is only in the ninth season that we start without players who were already there at the beginning of our journey. Technically that's not right tho, as Bonin & Belarbi were youth products from season "0". Furthermore, Guyot was also allowed to leave on a transfer free basis, the loan at Amiens didn't turn out the way we wanted. He left for the Portuguese Famalicao for 125K + 30% profit on next sale.

Ligue 1

Things are getting better and better, every year we finished just a little higher. Our debut season we finished 14th, then 10th and last year 9th. Before this season, I really believed we could do even better. There is enough talent and the team is really used to each other, so despite the young age I was confident. That we are a team that has to be considered by others in the Ligue 1 became clear throughout the season. There are only three sides we have never beaten: we did manage to have a draw against Monaco (1x) and Lyon (3x), while P$G defeated us ten times already, with the 8-1 in the cup as the low point this season.

Not surprisingly, these three clubs also are the top three in the league. They are and will remain out of our reach for the time being, but for all the teams below them we can make things pretty difficult. We did exactly do that. We were even in fourth place for a while, but we failed in the final race. If we wanted to qualify for European football, however, this was an opportunity not to be missed... Fortunately we did not miss our chances, and despite a bad run at the end of the season we finished 6th.  This means that next season we play in the Conference League... Wow!  LOSC Lille has relegated by the way, a club in decline...

 

Highlighted players

In 2029 we have another Ligue 1 Revelation of the Year! Our club is popular, as it turns out. This time the award went to Bamba. I can actually only agree, because Bamba was a silent force behind our strong performance. Despite his height, he stands his ground in the heart of the defense. For now he will stay there, but if a good central defender is found in the future, he might be moved to the midfield as BWM. By the way, throughout the season he received the qualification of "wonderkid", the very first at the club! 

Traoré in turn received the international trophy NxGn, whatever that may be. The Burkinese is doing an excellent job and has become a top player, both for the club and his country.

Youth intake

Spoiler

1536a801d8aee12152b9802559be0fb3.png

The facilities were upgraded yet again. (screen) Özkan is the promising striker from the preview. We had some other options in front besides Bokungu, but not a pure finisher like this half Turk. Hopefully he can become an interesting player for us! Furthermore, Jabnoun is the annual talented goalkeeper. However, he is quite small and has much work ahead of him. That being said, I think Roos is a much more useful player. A central defender who is not too bad with his feet, very welcome. Just has to improve the marking and speed a bit and he looks good!

Club Atlético Sarmiento de Resistencia - 2022/23 season review

This season was a bit of a disaster. We started really strongly and were actually top after the first 2 games, but it was a long way down from there. We could barely buy a win in the second half of the season and were only saved from automatic relegation because the bottom 3 teams were absolutely awful (although they consistently managed to beat us, naturally). We ended up in the relegation playoff, a 4 team playoff where the loser goes down. We lost 1-0 in the semi-final so ended up in the "final", in which we took an early lead in the 18th minute which we held all the way to the 85th minute. The game ended 1-1 and went straight to penalties. They missed their first penalty and we scored all of ours, so we survived by the smallest margin possible! I don't have much hope for next season but I'll keep my fingers crossed and we'll see how it goes. Offensively we're pretty good, but defensively we're absolutely shocking. Guillermo Sanchez was an absolute stud up front, hitting 21 goals for us from everywhere - long shots, tap ins, headers, everything. Unlike last year I won't be losing him at the end of the season, so we'll try to run it back with him next year. Quite a few of the tagged youths got game time, but no one really stood out yet.

Vikeologist's 17th Folkestone Intake Report (and 13th Intake Review)

See the source image

20210213175852_1.thumb.jpg.ec1666a47022e023c1e18fc881632c11.jpgA pretty promising intake. Our slightly improved facilities maybe finally paying off.

The top 2 prospects are a central defender and a central midfielder, and there are potential openings there.

The outcome of our season is more or less decided, so I could throw some of these guys straight in should I wish.

20210213173157_1.thumb.jpg.b6cc62eb1b8acb636072c8f385172467.jpg

Kim Min-Ki 17a – Not entirely sure what he’s doing in Folkestone. Doesn’t even speak English that well, but has a good personality, apart from the determination which we can fix.

However, and really not doing much to reverse stereotypes of Asians, he’s very short.

20210213174053_1.thumb.jpg.6ef9e05abb55078c47aeb930d0a557b1.jpg

Neil Norris 17b – A central midfielder who would be our free kick taker from the start.

 

Jermaine Starkey 17c – Ostensibly a right back, but equally good in the centre and a lot taller than Min-Ki.

20210213175046_1.thumb.jpg.541d4a75b5752f7fa5b6815585e248b9.jpg

Peace Ncube 17f – Seemingly the player with the best CA, and a professional personality.

 

YP13 Review

1556258642_yp13review.thumb.jpg.f4b69a59c50de56824fbd9542ec8601b.jpg

Jack Collett 13a – One of our starting strikers, and last year’s top scorer, albeit because of injury to the deity that plays alongside him. Is really quite a good player.

Gavin Purcell 13b – Battling away to be the backup left winger, but he hasn’t progressed all that well.

Adam James 13c – Will be leaving in a huff this summer because I didn’t manage to get anybody to take him on loan, because no one wanted him.

Luca Cawley 13f – Has picked up quite a few games in central defence, but the intake above has probably consigned him to irrelevance.

Still, one really good player, and a few that have been helpful for depth, so really not a bad intake.

FK Blansko Season 8

Apologies for the quick update first time home in 3 weeks so got a backlog of a few seasons

8 Years and we..... are in the Synot Liga. What a season we started off on fire and by the xmas break were top of the league, which put me in an awkward spot; as we have poor everything the only way to improve players is to play them and I just could not risk it, which meant we faded at the end and only had 2 wins in the last 8, hanging on to the playoffs by GD only. Ross Bird destroyed the league with 19 goals in 30 games and won Player and Young Player of the Season, along with scoring and 87th minute winner in the away leg of the playoffs. (Yet he is still not a club icon!!!) One of the downsides of the playoff system is that we went straight into pre season without a break

The intake was much better with a few promising first team prospects (one of which scored from the bench in the playoffs). Sova is already better than our 2 mainstay CM and just needs a bit of retraining and game time.

Checked on my massive list of poached players and one of them is touted as the next Jan Koller which is really annoying!

We are nowhere near good enough to stay in the league, the aim for seasons 9 and 10 are to avoid the one automatic relegation spot and fight the playoffs, at the end of season 10 our really low sponsorship ends and we should get a big increase, along with the new 10 times bigger stadium we are renting. At the minute we are still losing close to a million a year so no upgrades for at least the next 2 year. This will be a massive battle, we should never have gone up but rode a close tight squad along with a beast of a finisher. Finally Every single player apart from our best (RB Brazilian Cleiton who, who wants to go to be a bigger club ) has signed a new 3 year contract so even if we go down should be able to keep most of them. Cleiton has now surpassed Bird as our best player, and is considered good enough for the Synot Liga

Season Review 2100/01

WOW!

What a disappointing season!

As posted above, sitting top in January and on a 14 match unbeaten run

3-1 up after the 1st leg of the Semi Final of the League Cup

I lose 5-1 in the 2nd leg of the cup to mid table Swansea (I was top!)

and win 5 games out of 16 in the league! Absolutely joke form put of nowhere, typical FM being FM. One bad/unlucky result the whole season capitulates! 

As usual Crepaldi spits his dummy out and wants to leave at the end of the season

New stadium on the the cards

 

 

WE GO AGAIN!!!

A decent preview was followed with a decent intake.  A few here will make the first team within a season or two, I have no doubts.

Just over half the season and sit top

Plenty of time for a dip in form but fingers crossed we can keep going

image.thumb.png.3b970766ff15aca33ee0a968dcaad35e.png

This version is the first time when I don't feel safe when topping the table. Form can dip so suddenly, and the ways that i presume stopped that happening in previous versions don;t seem to work on FM21.

If I'm topping the table by a point about midway through, I wouldn't even feel a playoff spot was assured, or European qualification in your case. That's just me though. I have / had no faith in my youngsters not to fall to pieces.

End of Season Review

Season 2045/46

SV Babberich

SV Babberich - Wikipedia

League Table - A satisfying first season  in the second division.  We did go on a fifteen match winless run at once point, though we did enough to survive quite comfortably at the end.

League Fixtures 1 & 2 - We didn't win from mid October until February and I was quite worried, but we won some key games to survive.

TOTO KNVB Beker - We had a very tough draw, away to top tier outfift FC Volendam, who promptly hammered us 6-2, ending any chance of a cup run.

Pre Season Friendlies - A much beter season, where we won five of our seven games.

Mid Season Friendlies - As we were in the middle of a long winless run in the league, I set up three games against lower league opposition to try and raise morale.  We won all three.

Squad - The players played way above their level.  If we can do this again next year, I will be delighted.

Squad Dynamics - Excellent as I always expect it to be.

Transfers In - None.

Transfers Out - Seven permanent departures, including a club record sale for £2.2m.

Youth Candidates - A good intake with right winger Toon Nieuwboer YP46B386 looking like the best prospect.

Finances - Due to the club record player sale and the TV rights we earned over the season, the finances are healthy, for the first time in years.

Key Players

Marc Chapman YP36B226 - A good enough season from our goalkeeper, though he did struggle at times.

Yordi Koutsocheras YP40J298 - Another excellent return from the striker, scoring 22 goals in 39 appearances.

Berkan Yılmazer YP39G279 - The 22 year old Turk is head and shoulders above our other midfielders.

Nerijus Rocys YP40E293 - Our best player who proved he is more than good enough for the second tier.

Dirk van der Velden YP42H328 - The left back enjoyed a good first season at this level.

Next Season

Another season surviving would be lovely.

Another long serving club stalwart has left.  Erjon Bahtiri YP26A65 had been with the club for over twenty years and played a club record (for an outfield player) 519 times.  Sad to see him go, though he was patently not good enough for the league we play in.

This version is the first time when I don't feel safe when topping the table. Form can dip so suddenly, and the ways that i presume stopped that happening in previous versions don;t seem to work on FM21.

If I'm topping the table by a point about midway through, I wouldn't even feel a playoff spot was assured, or European qualification in your case. That's just me though. I have / had no faith in my youngsters not to fall to pieces.

I agree but I would say my average age is over 25 at the moment. Most of the 1st team have been with me for years

I wasn’t surprised with the drop in form. Happens all the time. One bad result and bang!

Every year about the midway point we go out of the FA Cup and FA Trophy, and that often induces an avalanche of defeats.

In the past I've always found someone's form to praise when we unexpectedly lose or to berate in the opposite scenario, but that doesn't seem to work so well. 

Plus even when we're winning, the average ratings aren't so great. Ac you may notice from my screenshot in the report, in a season where we gained over 100 points and won by a country mile, only 3 of my starters finished with a rating over 7. 

Still, good for discipline / boosting those attributes. Annoyingly, my latest arrivals seem to have mastered the art of a 6.6 rating every match.

One of my team leaders (and top player) feels we have a lack of depth at centre back.  Its at an early stage, so not a huge problem atm - but could escalate I guess.  Does anyone have any tips on how to resolve this?  cheers

Had it many times, nothing you can really do as can't buy one.

I tend to ignore it and hope that he forgets about it or changes his mind

FC United of Manchester ; season 2035/36

Errea is named new technical sponsor of FC United of Manchester!

League Table ; Squad ; Starting 11TransfersYouth Candidates

A fairly forgettable season but valuable experience for the next generation. I finished 21st but 10 points clear of the drop. 9 of my 12 wins came before Christmas, while sitting pretty in mid table at the half way stage I decided to focus on game time for my youngsters in the second half of the season. Particularly in midfield, I was fielding 3 teenagers out of 4 across the middle for most of the run in.

I have some big decisions to make around goalkeepers. I'm in the ridiculous scenario where 3 of my best 5 players are goalkeepers, with my first choice keeper dropping to 3rd in the ranking according to my staff's opinion. I will probably loan out the 19 year old Ukrainian again, and bring  Daws into the first time fold to challenge for the #1 shirt.

I'm so afraid of letting a potential superstar go, that I am hoarding players and it's definitely a quantity over quality approach. I constantly have about 20 players out on loan. Anyone have any thoughts on a hoard and spread your net wide approach vs. a focus on quality over quantity approach for this kind of save?

Last season I overhauled my first team, because of a pre-season injury to our star striker, and even though my team for this season was the same, the investment in the youngsters paid off. We lost out first match to Eastleigh, who turned out to be our main rivals for the title, but once we beat them in the return fixture to commence the second half of the season we were on our way.

 

Congrats! Well deserved!

I think I have a few seasons left before I can join you. We seem to be a regular play off contender now, but the top teams are still way better than us, even if we sometimes can pull of an upset. Had this happen around Christmas 2034 , first preview after the upgrade to recruitment:

Never seen this much green lines before. Just hoping my excitement doesn't get crushed come April

Gainsborough Trinity

Season 2036/2037. 18th place Championship - FA cup 3rd round - Carabeo cup 1st round

We survived and had many up and downs during season. Our 4-0 thrashing of Derby at home, our 1-0 vicotyr at home against Watford, to ou 7-0 defeat away against Watford. But we survived and managed to put many new players into the team, which was needed.

Our topscorer is our right wing Daniel Skinner with 11 goals - quite worrying our strikers dont make more goals.

The club need to FIRE the guy in charge of sponsorships - 48.000 euro in sponsorship income in Championship is just ridiculous. So we lost tons of money again. 1,7 million euro.

Our U18 team demolished their season undefeated and won their division with 30 points down to 2nd place and took the cup final with a 6-0 win. They need more challenges and we need more money to invest!

At least we managed to get the board onboard to both Youth and Senior facility upgrade.
