  1. Past hour
  2. With the end of January comes the annual deluge of friendlies, and while our home friendlies were against a slightly lower calibre of opposition this time round, easy wins over Zilina and FCK give us confidence heading into our European clash with Sporting. Three local sides were then dismantled in the traditional fashion - Torpedo really have fallen far - and we're as ready as we're going to be for the Portuguese side. With no transfers in or out, academy graduation day was again a highlight of the winter period, and this year our youth staff seem to have been working particularly hard on our defence. Volkov looks like a decent holding man in the making, Gamkrelidze and Sychev could end up competing for a first-team berth on the right, but the star of the show is Kozhemyakin. A brave, determined, hard-worker of a full-back, he's got the early signs of a potential star in the making. It's up to me to unlock that potential.
  3. If you buy the (official) in game editor you won't be able to change anything in an existing save game unless you selected "allow use of IGE" when you went through the game creation process.
  4. For FM19, no. He'll train position there and whatever role is selected as the training (which does not have to be his playing role). Role training is nothing more than focussing training on a selection of attributes, so if you want a player to focus on training certain attributes which happens to differ from the role he plays in your tactic, go right ahead.
  5. You can indeed change a clubs finances with the in-game editor.
  6. They don't "overrule". These tactical settings have a cumulative effect. Mentality sets the starting point of tactical settings. Team Instructions adjust that starting point. Player Instructions then adjust things further. And Traits make one final adjustment. In that order. If the Trait to run with ball often (for example) overruled everything else, all of your other tactical settings which relate to dribbling would be completely ignored by any player who happened to have that Trait - which is not how it works. Example (I'm going to oversimplify here, this isn't how things actually work and is purely for illustration): Balanced Mentality = 0; TI to Dribble Less = -1; PI to Dribble More = +1; Trait to run with ball often = +1; Cumulative total = +1. Balanced Mentality = 0; TI to Dribble More = +1; PI to Dribble More = +1; Trait to run with ball often = +1; Cumulative total = +3. So in the second example, exactly the same player using the exact same Inside Forward role will tend to dribble more often than in the first example. In other words, a cumulative effect. (Don't get hung up on the "0", "-1" or "+1" above. In reality weightings are different and more complex. It's just to give you an idea what a cumulative effect means).
  7. New Contract Just signed a new contract worth £22k per week over four years. This is huge money for Ghana and probably even Africa. I'm being made to work for my money though, I have no less than six players currently wanted, four of those first choice players. I've rejected bids for my only available RB, an Ivorian CB, my Ivorian LB, my CB/DM who currently a starter, my young Ghanaian CB I signed from Guingamp, an AMC who just came back from a long term injury, my German youth product GK is wanted by mid-tabled German teams, my little Brazilian AMC is wanted in England and my DM youth product is wanted by Monaco and Porto.
  8. End of Season Review 2031-2032 Slightly disappointing season due to missing out on the league and our failure down the stretch, but it is part of the challenge to unseat the dominant teams in the league (30d) Dias was our player of the year, and retained the best player in league title he won in his debut season. A lot less rotation this year as we were playing catch up most of the season, so this is pretty much the starting 11 when everyone is fully fit. 12 players abouve a 7.00 rating, although a couple of those were rotational options [(30f) Chanot and Maes (19j)], with most of the rotation happening early the season and then due to injuries Positionally we were fairly consistant at GK, DR, DC, DL, and DM with a little more rotation happening further forward which mirrors the pattern of the last few seasons. (30c) Pleimling skews the look of this a bit as he dropped back to DM when (26a) Payal was unavailable. Having made more use of the loan market this season and seen eight more players hit an average above 7.00 and 17 players getting double figures in the starts column, I am going to look for a slightly different tack this coming season when looking at the squad, by aiming to keep the best player at each position, plus a strong bench of options, but to loan out the next best players even if they could play a role, leaving me with U19 players, who are too young to be loaned out, as by injury backup players. The aim will be to allow the best development of players in competitive games, hopefully in the National Division, but using the Promotion Division for some of the weaker players, as long as they are able to play regularly. While this may affect the main squad negatively if we hit a run of injuries, as while players can be recalled, they won't be able to be registered for the league, it should have long term benefits for us in boosting our options at certain positions, and help us make some money off fringe players who will never play for us, although this will be via sales not loan fees as teams in Luxembourg are cash poor, and teams from abroad are not interested currently
  9. The thing is, 90% of them are given away at corners or long throws into the box so would the d-line have anything to do with it? I think Daniel has it right with concentration as apart from Andy Robertson, their concentration stat are all "12". Any advice on how I can reduce the chance of it happening? I'm thinking to take away get stuck in, urgent pressing and tight marking around 75/80 mins? Hopefully we'd then focus more on holding a shape late on rather than going chasing after the ball and making reckless decisions.
  10. To get any kind of printer related advice, visit epson error code 0xf4. It will provide the entire guidance regarding the printer and deals with all kind of errors that the users face.
  11. I don't think it overrules it. They work in synergy. If you for example play wheri aggressive, high press, get stuck in, close down urgently etc. but set one player to ease of tackles he will still be as aggressive like someone that isn't given that instruction in a tactic that doesn't play so aggressively. Again I don't think it overrules it, he will definently do both, to what extent, I don't really know.
  12. Things are starting to get a bit easy so I think I am going to 'pull an Ajax' over the summer and ship out some of my top talent to makeway for the next wave of younsters through the academy. I may be brutal and look to ship anyone over the age of 28 or 29, which would mean club stalwarts like Aouar, Romero, Diallo, Zaniolo and Gouri (all regulary starters or rotated options) would go...
  13. Hello, i noticed that when i change a tactic i cannot load a pre saved routine... Although i found it in the set piece directory, i press "load" but nothing happens.. So when i want to use a different tactic i have to create the routines from zero...
  14. 2028 - Los Angeles Football Club Competitions -- Fixtures Year 2 in Los Angeles, California was a weird year, both a massive improvement and a massive disappointment. We did our job in the transfer market, filled most of the gaps we wanted filled, got a star to lead the team forward... and started the season with a 4-0 defeat against a team bound to finish 16th. Great. It was just a mirage, though, and soon we got a pretty good-looking run going, winning six on the trot and not losing for eleven fixtures. We were comfortably top of the Western Conference and pushing Atlanta for the lead in the Supporters' Shield, both new and old players were doing well, and everything seemed to be headed in the right direction. And then we imploded. Hard. We won five out of the last twenty-one regular season fixtures, and one out of the last twelve. We started dropping like rocks on the tables, and didn't miss out on the playoffs altogether just because of the huge lead we'd built in the early season. Our defense turned into a joke and our attack into the footballing equivalent of those fake guns you get at fairs and carnivals to win plushies with, ie completely unreliable. Oh, and we crashed out of the US Open Cup at the very first opportunity, in an admittedly quite unlucky away draw to Dallas. In the end we finished 9th overall and 5th in our conference, which didn't exactly fill me with hope for the playoffs. We salvaged a lucky win in the Wild Card stage against Dallas, but Colorado were just too much for us, even though we did have our chances. Worse, no CONCACAF Champions League entry for us, not even close, so we're exactly where we were one year ago regarding the challenge. Roster As mentioned, we managed to fill up our roster much better for this year, with adequate (on paper) cover for all positions. In the end, though, most of the rotation and backup players we brought in ended up disappointing and falling out of the rotation entirely, so it came to the starters to deliver the goods. Of course, that also meant that once the form of those starters went to hell, there was no one reliable enough to pick up the slack, and so we entered the vicious circle that led to our eventual failure to impress. Regardless, there were some solid performances overall, particularly in midfield and attack, but our defense was the most absolute of shambles for the most part. I don't think I've ever managed a team that gave up so many stupid penalties in a single season... We made two big money signings for the season, and both ended up being both the best players of the squad and, simultaneously, the main reason for our failure. Sandro came from Everton after a long career in the Premier League, and his early performances put him as one of the best players in the MLS, if not the best. Then he suddenly went from amazing to unreliable, and finally to a complete liability. He still had rare flashes of genius that made me keep playing him, but in the end he was a ghost of his early season self. His physical drop might have something to do with that, since he was played mostly on the wing, and I'll have to figure a way to keep him involved come the next season. He was still the joint best goal provider in the MLS, though, which speaks volumes of how good he was at first. Our other big purchase was Josh Sargent, American international who'd spent most of his career in Germany and Spain. He came late in the summer, and despite getting dragged in the general disastrous ambience around him, he looked quite solid upfront. I'll be relying on him next year to provide the goals for us. Assuming I'm still here next year, of course... The MLS and its way too many weird rules aren't sitting too well with me, and staying in LAFC feels like it'll become another Changchun in my career, so if the right position opens up in the following months I'll be sure to go for it. Mexico would be the ideal destination (already failed an interview with América), but I'm open to any top South American squad that wants me. No news in the international front once again, by the way. The Euros did bring some interesting openings, and Denmark did come knocking after I applied to them all, but I decided to wait for Belgium or Sweden, which looked like better options to actually win stuff in the short term. Neither picked me, so in the end I was left nationless once again. Sigh. Let's hope either Mexico or the US fail hard in the 2029 Gold Cup, otherwise it's time to wait for the WC qualifiers or the Confed Cup...

  15. Im on the public beta, running on high graphics when previously I was on very high..
  16. After my time in China I was looking for jobs in top clubs but it seems like none became available for season 2036/2037 so in the end I decided to gain some knowledge in Italy anyway and took a job in SPAL who was relegated to serie b and was struggling. I managed to change the course and in the end we easily won Serie B. Mexican side Tigres became interested in my services and we already made a contract that starts once the season in Italy is over.

  17. Does anyone know how to roll back a MacBook to 10.14.3? I've now had a temperature CPU warning that I have never had before in 10 years of FM! I've also found that the non-retina option is now also laggy, whereas without the public beta it was smooth. public beta is playable (just), but laggy, and I find that I have to stop playing every couple of hours to let my MacBook cool down.
  18. How is the CB situation coming along? I saw you had one come through your youth intake this year (Alberto).
  19. Today
  20. Hi guys I've been asking this question before, but was not quite satisfied with the answer... or in other words... not satisfied with my own understanding of the answer :-) Which is why I'll try again... For a long time been wondering how team- and playerinstructions awell as player traits "conflicts". My understanding of the interaction between them is, that teaminstructions is the instructions which you want to apply to all your players. Player instructions is therefore instructions you can apply to certain players, if you want them to do something different from the teaminstructions - if i understand this correctly it means that player instruction "overrules" the teaminstructions? Then taking player traits into account, does they then overrule both the teaminstructions and the playerinstructions? Eg. if i have a winger with the player trait "Cuts inside from both wings" which conflicts with the automatic player instruction of a winger "Run wide with ball", will it then make the player cut inside in the same "amount" as if he played as an Inside forward (this meaning that the player trait will "overrule" the player instruction of "Run wide with ball"), or will it actually make him do "both" more frequently in a way? ... A follow-up question of the above is, if an Inside forward have the player trait of cutting inside, will it then make him do it "more" when he also gets the automatic player instruction from the inside forward-role? Hope you understand my questions, which could propably have been more simplified... Thank you in advance!
  21. Yep, positions (natural only), date/place of birth, height/weight (although clearly this can change, eg. me growing), favourite team and a few other things are consistent between saves.
  22. As an underdog are you using P103? My be worth trying a 4141 like PILGRIMAGE 4141 or the new MM P103.
  23. In FM16 someone tested the various test methods and playing the games is better than instant result and holiday mode gives the worse results.
  24. In my first few seasons I scored a lot of goals from set pieces. I don't know exact number, I wish I kept track, but I would always get the message from my AM to add play for set pieces to take advantage of our good record. I even had a single game where I scored 4 goals from set pieces. In top league it seems the goals dropped a bit but it's still good. I don't think it's because of my setup, but you could try. For corners I setup my best jumpers (usually DCs and strikers) to attack far post, attack near post, and attacks ball from the deep. Set one player to challenge the GK, one to lurk outside the area, two fullbacks to stay back, and the rest to go forward. On wide set pieces I keep the default setting, just set one player to attack the far post i think, and one to lurk outside the area. Hope it helps.
  25. @Jambo98 count me mate if u can..also only in spain we can manage a team?
