  1. It might be weighted as more important in those actions, as far as being able to pull them off, but my understanding is that it is linked to all actions to some degree.
  2. OK then, in that case: I would say the following attributes are not given enough importance in your rankings: Technique - Very surprised to see you had this ranked as "low" when it comes to finishing chances. A players with high technique is going to be a much more effective finisher, since his ability to strike the ball cleanly / as intended is a vital aspect of putting chances away. I would rank this as "high" importance, personally. Aggression & Bravery - Your explanation suggests that these apply more to strikers involve in more aerial duels, but for a Poacher role pr
  3. First step should be to define "score regularly" and define "slump". And is this purely focused on goals scored, or goal involvement? For example, if my striker went 3 or 4 games without scoring, but notched up 2 assists over that spell, I wouldn't really be worried about any kind of slump developing.
  4. Update: so after exploring the Scouting area for a while, I found that you can filter players by the relevant statistics mentioned above, but I would maintain that the ability to set assignments based on these would be preferable and should fall under the Data Analysis team rather than be a function of the Scouting filters.
  5. I originally posted this in the Good Player & Team Guide forum to ask if this was already possible, got no responses from anyone so now posting here as a feature request. From my understanding, the way that some modern football clubs make decisions on transfers is a combination of performance analytics and in-person scouting for a number of matches. I would like to start a save where I implement an analytically driven approach, where all my first-team transfers are driven by data analysts who identify players performing well in certain areas in various competitions. But not
  6. Check the opposition manager profile to see what his preferred style is. Any kind of Direct / Route One / Counter-Attacking style means I would drop the Higher Defensive Line to a Standard One + lose the Offside Trap. Change your Anchor Man to a Half Back so that you keep a 3 vs 2 situation at the back at all times. Change your FBs to WBs with instructions to Overlap on both flanks so that the RB is a WB (a) and the LB is a WB (s) -- that should keep their wingers pinned back further. Make Cuisance a DLP instead of AP to try and draw their DMs further away from their own defensi
  7. From my understanding, the way that some modern football clubs make decisions on transfers is a combination of performance analytics and in-person scouting for a number of matches. I would like to start a save where I implement an analytically driven approach, where all my first-team transfers are driven by data analysts who identify players performing well in certain areas in various competitions. But not just based on top scorers or top assisters, also to include more of the underlying statistics that are important on a per-role basis for my tactical setup. Is it currently possible
  8. In real life yes, he joined in January. But that won't be reflected on FM until the winter update.
  9. Yep. There could even be new staff roles created, or you could designate a team of staff members to work on them since I know pro teams use a combination of analysts & coaching staff to design and practice set pieces. It would also give managers the chance to defer responsibility for what can be a pretty time consuming task. Leaving them on default is always an option I suppose, but generally not advised.
  10. Don't get caught up in stats like how many shots or shots on target you're getting. I could get 100 shots in a game with all of them on target, but if they're all from outside the box and straight at the GK I still know something is wrong with my approach. First thing I'd recommend for you to be able to identify the right changes is to go back and watch the Extended Highlights of a few games where you lost or drew but could/should have won. It's always best to try and identify things for yourself, make tweaks / changes and see how things go. That said, faced with this kind of system
  11. Simply put: there are not enough communication options in this area of the game. I would like to see more. Want to tell a player that you're really disappointed with his development at his loan club? Not an option, you have to tell him his "progress has been OK" and hope he gets the message. Want to tell a player that a one-off performance was really impressive and to keep it up? Not an option, you have to praise his recent form -- if that hasn't been good enough, he may react badly even though he's just performed well enough to deserve some praise. Want a player to learn a PPM
  12. Unaware of anything similar on the site and thought that a centralized place for people to post / list good resources for learning about tactics, systems, methodologies, etc. might be a good idea. Feel free to post any interesting articles you come across that cover a particular style or whatever. Might lead to some interesting conversations. Maybe it can help to inspire new save ideas, new tactic ideas, new approaches to the game. Who knows. Here are a couple of places I like to read articles: Coaches Voice - https://www.coachesvoice.com/ StatsBomb Blog - https://statsbomb
