  1. All it means is that he has a low Pressure rating. On previous versions it was 1-5, but they've changed quite a few of the other values needed for certain messages to appear on this year's edition. So it might not be 1-5, but should still be on the lower end.
  2. David Platt and Robbie Savage were part of the Man Utd academy before joining Crewe, and Neil Lennon was part of Man City's academy.
  3. The Model Professional personality has an age requirement of 23 years old. If the player is younger than that he will just be labled as Professional.
  4. Do you actually mean Potential Ability and not Current Ability? I thought PA was supposed to be static.
  5. Have a look here: Specifically at the "Patiently waiting for his injury to subside" when he's injured.
  6. All the time I've spent finding suitable tutors for my young players I haven't even found that you now can search by personalities :O Interesting find on Fickle and Mercenary, got me curious what they can be. I guess Nocuous has some work to do!
  7. This guide is meant to help determine what affects the players’ moods and reactions to events in the game. For instance how a player reacts to being injured, how he copes with the pressure of being wanted by other clubs and a couple more. It is meant to be used together with The Ultimate Personality/Media-handling Guide, as it in some cases can reveal hidden attributes that the player’s personality won't. I’ve been using this for a while now and for the most part it should be accurate. I don’t think I’ve found all the different moods and reactions, but the ones I’ve found should still be able to give a good picture of the player’s hidden attributes. Some of the moods have had their attributes changed from edition to edition, so if you’re playing a version older than FM16 not all of these will be accurate. Contract situations: Players that have recently signed a new contract or are on expiring contracts Determined to prove his worth to the team Dtn 15-20 Happy to have signed a new contract Pro 1-14, Dtn 1-14, Pre 11-20, Amb 11-20 Pleased to have signed a new contract Pro 15-20 Relieved to have signed a new contract Pro 1-14, Pre (1-10), Amb (1-10) - Either Pre or Amb or both Satisfied with the terms of his new contract Pro 1-14 Wants to commit his future to the club Dtn 1-14 Injuries (Not diseases or viruses): Determined to make sure his injury doesn't hold him back Pro 1-14, Dtn 15-20, Amb 11-14 Determined to overcome his injury Pro 15-20 Disappointed to be injured, but optimistic for the future Pro 15-20, Amb 15-20 Hopes his injury won't set him back too much Pro 1-14, Dtn 1-10, Amb 11-20 - 23 years old or younger Hopes the manager will stick by him while he's injured Pro 1-14, Dtn 1-10, Amb 11-20 Looking forward to recovering from his injury Pro 1-14, Dtn 11-14, Amb 15-20 Looking forward to returning to action as soon as possible Pro 1-14, Dtn 15-20, Amb 15-20 Patiently waiting for his injury to subside Pro 1-14, Amb 1-10 – Also retiring players Wanted by other clubs (Major interest from, I believe, two or more clubs): Feels pressured by the interest shown in him Pre 1-10 Flattered by the interest shown in him Pre 11-14 Ignoring the speculation regarding his future Pre 15-20 Others: Wants to become a regular in the first team Pre 15-20, Amb 15-20 Wants to break into the first team Pre 15-20, Amb 15-20 Wants to win a trophy Dtn 15-20, Amb 15-20 Has ambitions to win current nation’s top division Amb 11-20 – Players 22 years old or younger Would like more first-team opportunities Amb 15-20 Player has reacted well to collective win bonuses Amb 15-20, Loy 1-9 Unconfirmed or requires additional, undetermined sources: Is willing to fight to regain his place in the first team Pre 15-20, Amb 15-20 Feels the team has more potential and wants to help them realise it Amb 15-20 Considering leaving when his contract expires due to the club's league performance Dtn 1-10 - Expiring contract Low loyalty, possibly 1-9, but can be lower, depending on unknown factors. Possibly CA/PA and/or reputation for the player or relative to his team-mates: Is looking to help the club progress Dtn 15-20, (Loy 1-9) Is enjoying being at the club Dtn 1-14, (Loy 1-9) On free transfer: Is worried by lack of interest from clubs Dtn 1-14, Pre 1-10 Is determined to keep looking for a new club Dtn 15-20 Example: Player A is Determined and Media-friendly. Using the personality guide this tells us: Determined: Dtn: 20, Amb: 10-20 Media-friendly: Con 1-14, Tem 7-20 During an injury period the player is “Disappointed to be injured, but optimistic for the future.” Pro: 15-20, Amb 15-20 Now we can determine a range for the player’s professionalism and a better range for his ambition. We can also discern that his pressure is 1-14, as he would be Evasive instead of Media-friendly had his pressure been 15-20. Lastly I’ll give a few other tips for getting better approximations of the players’ hidden attributes: When you purchase a player the fans’ reaction will sometimes be “Looking forward to seeing his ambition and determination to succeed”. I haven’t 100% confirmed what it is, but it is a good thing. I’m assuming it is ambition 15-20. For offensive players in particular, pay attention to what he does when he’s in possession and being challenged or tackled. Players with low sportsmanship will tend to go to the ground, exaggerating and diving quite often. The diving animation should be pretty easy to spot. While players with higher sportsmanship will do their best to stay on their feet. Players with 15-16+ sportsmanship will hardly ever try to dive. In short: low spo means the player will go for a penalty, high spo means he will go for the goal. Players with in-match body language "Seems professional" will usually have pro 19-20. I'll update this if I find and confirm more. When this will happen depends on how much I'll be playing on my single-player save.
  8. When this happens the progress report (under development -> training) will state "The Coach fears that The Player may have become somewhat complacent after all the recent successes". Edit: So it was pretty much excactly what I thought it was going to be
  9. Compare it to how in real life where a DoF or chairman can sometimes buy and sell players behind the manager's back, or even try to influence team selections. Although it isn't common, it still happens and could therefore be considered realistic. It's problematic for the same reasons the sackings are; it takes away the manager's ability to control and develop his team. For the sake of a healthier and more compelling game world some things considered realistic has to be sacrificed, and these sackings are one of them.
  10. It doesn't matter if it happens in real life or not, or how rarely it happens. Such a completeley game altering feature, that the player has no way of influencing the outcome of, has no place in the game. Thankfully it's never happened to me, but if it would, I'd be devastated. I put my heart and soul into every team I manage. If I'm to get sacked it should be as a result of my own shortcomings or incompetence, not as a result of a one in a million luck of the draw.
  11. He's pretty much what I'd imagine Cruijff would look like on FM, atleast if he'd have even higher Anticipation. His PPMs are: Moves Into Channels Comes Deep To Get Ball Plays One-Twos Likes To Lob Keeper
  12. Although there are a number of players that can lay claim to the best player ever, there's only one that can even be nominated as the most influential; Johan Cruijff. Something all these attempts at recreating a system invented 50 years ago is a testament to. I've always had a dream of finding that one, special playmaker from the Netherlands and on FM 15 I found him. Same height, born in Amsterdam, bought from Ajax, where he came through their youth set-up. I think he'd love playing the system you've created, in just about any position.
  13. It could also be worth a shot to get a coach with the Places Shots-PPM, as coaches are more efficient at teaching PPMs they know themselves.
