  1. Quick development question for you guys. How do you guys balance first team football with better schedules. ie: Youngsters that arent good enough to play for you yet. Loaning them out gets them first team experience, but will mean they wont be on optimal schedules. Will I see better resutls by loaning out, or by playing in reserves with better schedules? Obviously not a problem with Rooney like prospects, which can play in first team from 17+ but I do have a few players for whom this is a big issue.
  2. I know overall workload isnt something that has been discussed in great detail in this particular thread, but as theres so much knowledge about training in this thread I thought I would ask here. What I have been doing so far, is after making the adjustments to the SFraser schedules based on the miscalculations, adjusting the workload up to the point at which distortion appears. For most of the schedules this is about four clicks before one (or more) of the individual sliders increases. My question is, do these clicks actually have any effect. As the overall workload does increase individual
  3. In response to people talking about aerial ability, I would say it was a bonus, but not necessary. For example my Portsmouth game, (a pretty good test for a tactic!) my 1st choice front three is: Piquionne Kanu Utaka So say Utaka pulls out into the right channel, as he does alot (AMR/ST), both Piquionne and Kanu are decent headers, and they have both popped up with goals from Utakas crosses and from full back crosses as well. But as a proportion these goals are very low, even though they are both very decent headers by striker standards - so I would say a bonus for all three positions, es
  4. I made all the revised (STR 3, AER 5) training schedules the other day, with the intention of uploading for the people that have been asking, then I noticed I had somehow managed to fill in AER as 4 on the Prozone sheet because I'm an idiot. The numbered sliders for tactics skin is hopefully being updated to include training, so that might make creating schedules off the spreadsheet easier. I thought it might be nice to actually create the schedules using a program based off the spreadsheet but I dont know if there is any way of writing to a TSH file from outside FM. I tried to open one in te
  5. That is a great summary, thanks so much. I feel like I understand much better now. Players have a natural bias against certain training due to their position thus the SFraser schedules assign greater weight to those harder to train attributes to attain balance. This perfectly explains the need to have an additional role bias, which could be influenced by an individual managers tactics, and preference for stats in different positions (although as a guide the attributes highlighted by the game as being important to a role could have the bias, which I think are the ones used in ProZone's squad a
  6. @ProZone Thanks very much for your quick and clear response, I just have some more questions in relation to the points you raised. I hope you dont mind How is 'Role Bias' distinguished from 'Focus'? It was my understanding that Focus was already biased towards roles, just that under SFrasers original schedules the roles were more loosely defined. Also what do you define a "balanced" schedule as? For me a balanced schedule would be the same for every role (thus more akin to 'baseline'), in that it implies even improvement across all attributes. Im embarassed to say I havnt seen any of your
  7. I'm really still struggling to get to grips with this thread! First point: looking at ProZone's excel sheet, it seems now that natural fitness is untrainable, and therefore Strength's baseline should be 3 for outfield, (instead of 4 as currently listed) correct? Second point: I still dont really get how players improve given certain weights. It seems to me the training system is biased in favour of the categories that have fewer attributes, in that relatively speaking you could pump those alot more? (A full slider of strength relatively is higher than a full slider of aerobic) I would love
  8. What would you advise doing with a 26-30 year old who only plays backup for the first team, and doesnt play many games in a season. Doesnt seem to fit any of the categories.
  9. Sorry for my complete lack of knowledge with regards to training, but could you briefly explain the injury routines. It was my understanding that the game automatically stopped the players training at all when they were injured. I hope I havnt been putting my poor players through rigorous training during injury this whole time

Yes you would get more out of him at MC, but the tactic benitez plays requires two holding players. You are not getting the best out of

It's intend to provide another forward passing option, and i find he gets onto some of the knocks downs of the target man...more than anything i find that he often simply draws markers away from your pacey striker. You can always try changing passing to mixed...i do this at half time sometimes just to mix it up. u can always try giving him a freerole...a player
  16. Just bought Anderson (Porto) for the MLC (this is still my Portsmouth game, and is 2011 so he is world class). However the jury is still out on forward runs for the MLC.... I tried it with O'Neil and Kranjcar last season and it seemed to make little difference although i saw slightly more of them. Now tho i find Anderson bursts into the box and does nothing, rather than providing a deeper option. Im still relatively new to watching the MLC (AMC) role as pre V4 i always played two holding players. I was wondering what function everyone find their AMC does in goals etc, because if it is just

  19. Theres no such thing as "Cracking Tactics" what occurs is a rerank where the AI re-estimates your teams ability (at least from reading this thread that is what i have surmised) which sometimes requires tactical switching. I havent switched back to earlier versians, cant bear thinking about the effort involved in switching over strikers settings etc when i wanted to exploit weak centre backs, love just being able to drag FS to other side. A further update on my Portsmouth game, finished fifth, but Mikel and Guardado seem to think they are a bit too good for us, i told Mikel i wanted him to s
  20. Football fans are bad, bad people. After leading Portsmouth to 3rd place in my first season in charge (with a media prediction of 17th), the fans having been delighted with my just a few months ago have organised a pressure group calling for my head on a platter after winning just 1 of my first 7 premiership games in my second season. Fair enough im nowhere near meeting their target of european qualification , (even though im performing well in the champions league) but they only have those expectations because of me!! Anyway im starting to turn the corner now after turning around morale and

I use V4 of this tactic. It got me promoted to Premier League with Sunderland in my 2nd season... Tactic works great.. But.. I read a lot about the tweaks in this forum, but which tweaks are there and which ones do actually work? So far I've seen: * Turn on/off counterattack * Remove back arrows on LB/RB * set marking to man mark or DC's and LB and RB * Higher tempo * Swap positions
  22. Well after using V3 on unpatched game for so long and havign so much success, the bugs etc finally drove me mad and i updated to 7.0.2, and of course V4 Started a new game with Portsmouth (my favourite team to start playing around with something, Battle Bravely and 20million, you cant beat that.) I have to say I love the new system of the FS being just off to the side, and i love being able to swap over the sides of the target man and FS, something i never really did in V3. The Lambs tips on when to use counter attack have also worked a treat, on V3 i have always used counter attack, even w

  25. Still playing unpatched so this may not work for everyone. 15 or so games into my 4th season with Norwich (finished 3rd last season), due to some success for away games last season, and from noting how little the Attacking central midfielder got involved, ive now just pretty much cloned the MRC's instructions for the MLC, and then splashed my champions league and new sponsorship deal cash on two good holding DMC's that also technically good. I'm playing much more solidly and as they are also good passers I dont seem to have lost much in terms of goals. I know this has been mentioned as an awa
