  1. In well over 1,000 hours for the past 3 years I have never had a goalkeeper sent off or injured during a match. Unless the rules state a gk must be on the bench I never have a backup.
  2. Just make sure you remove the underlap on left and right team instructions or it will conflict with the player instructions. Agree though that with Rangers having Wing Backs or Complete Wing Backs are much needed and don't lose that possession stats.
  3. I ignore xG and don't have it selected in my match stats. Total waste of time and tells you nothing about the match itself.
  4. Loving the new "take opposition sides team talk" addition btw. Fingers crossed it gets sorted for FM22.....
  5. I don't have an issue with them modifying the ratings to match the "below average, average and above average" stereo type but the fact that a slight drop below the 6.8 "average" rating is too detrimental to the rest of the game. Player has an average of say 6.4 is looked as being poor form when a difference of only 0.4 isn't really that much. If a player had say 5.8 average then yes that is poor. Just widen the bandwidth a little and give managers the scope to play the way they want to play and not punish players so harshly. Think they have to look at the bigger picture when making such changes rather than just the match itself. The match engine plays so well when you have the tactic that suits your team and it gets rid of the whole "plug n play" scenario we have seen since Championship Manager days. All I can ask is please just look at what needs done to fix what's already there well before what you think would be a good gimmick to add next time ie xG and covid transfer market.
  6. Pretty much this. If enough scouts then go deeper and scout by competition which produces a more in-depth report for me. Some regions you can afford to miss out on as they never produce anyone good enough in my typical game length of around 10 seasons.
  7. Wow. Just wow. Got this tactic (v3) working immensely with my Rangers save. 21 games into the league, 0 goals conceded, 68 scored, only 3 games where I have had 1 or more shots on target against me. Needs a little modifying for European football ( Drop defence line deeper, Stay on Feet, Switch one of the IWBs to WB) but works like a dream there too. Set pieces weren't the greatest either but that's an easy fix. Can't remember a game where my possession was below 65% and having fewer than 10 shots on target. Best looking tactic for the match engine too. Fantastic stuff. Can't recommended this enough.
  8. xG makes 21 worse then 20. Honestly don't know what they were thinking ripping the engine rating system up to add such a rubbish and useless data point.
  9. Morelos can't hit a barn door now. Cheers for that....
  10. Captain would probably still have been Tavernier. Gerrard took his time to pick the captain after he joined and from what he saw Tav was the outstanding candidate. If anyone knows what it takes to be club captain it's Gerrard. He could've easily picked Goldson or McGregor as you say but he saw something in Tav. Understand the Young-Coombes move. Thought it was officially confirmed.
  11. 1. Agree with you to a certain degree but Gerrard still chose him as captain and stuck by him. You would think Gerrard out of anyone in football knows what it takes to be captain. Shown unbelievable leadership qualities the 1st half of the season compared to the past few seasons. To be at 13 is a bit of a kick in the teeth. McGregor ain't a leader btw. Try telling the game at the start of every season that you want Tavernier as your captain instead of Goldson. 2. Far too many to name tbh. Some of the drops are borderline ridiculous. Chances that Celtic "stars" have suffered the same drop? 3. Sure it was confirmed on the 10th of February. 4. John Bennett, Alastair Johnston, Graeme Park, Julian Wolhardt, Barry Scott. 5. Good to hear
  12. Tavernier about to lead Rangers to a 55th league title yet only has 13 leadership? Goldson is vice captain and has 17 leadership in comparison to the captain. Rangers stats over the board haven't been bumped up enough imo. Nathan Young-Coombes future transfer to Brentford is missing. Directors missing from the board. George Charlton missing as a recruitment analyst.
  13. Ah christ! Does sound familiar though. Well done to SI research team for getting this charlatan right but wish he wasn't in the game! Hopefully get bought over again quickly then.
  14. In my 2nd season after finishing 5th in the first season. Got taken over by a Edin Rahic, who by all accounts is just as bad if not worse than Ashley. Put the club in debt by £200m to buy the club then after a very successful summer I have generated around £80m to the bank on top of the £100m that was already there. Does he give me any funds for players? No Does he give me any training or youth improvements? Nope Honestly diabolical working under him. Now in 2nd in November with my contract about to run out, I ask for an extension and he says no. One of the worst chairman I've worked under in this game ever.
