  1. Surely the title had to be: Alice in Wonder(kid) Land. Unless you're deliberately avoiding wonderkids? Other than that small observation, nice career you've got yourself there.
  2. I agree with this, I think that PPM's override TI's and PI's anyway, so more ficus should be given to coaching your players to do exactly what you need them to do. I often find that giving more than a couple of fundamental TI's makes it difficult to then unpick what exactly is going wrong when troubleshooting poor form.
  3. Is Zinchenko productive playing as a right winger? He's a left-footed left-back. Good to see the changes you've made have yielded improvements in how your team attacks.
  4. I've just handed in my resignation letter as your assistant, you clearly know what you are doing here.
  5. Had I been your assistant manager I'd have pulled you to one side and questioned the sale of our world class centre back (considering there was no one better to bring in to replace him). And then, being an ageing but proud Portuguese, I'd take you for a walk over to the Academy facilities (with my dog 'Jardel') and nod in its general direction, challenging you to dominate with a team of Portuguese graduates, and also adding to the national team's cause of one day lifting the Jules Rimet trophy.
  6. Given what happened with Jack Grealish, and the fact that in the time between the £100m sale being privately agreed and then publicly announced, Villa were able to spend much of the incoming fee without a premium being applied to their purchases, I think it would add another level of realism into transfers if other clubs recognised if you'd just had a windfall of cash injected into your club via a major transfer sale, and then applied a premium to any player you wanted to buy. A way to mitigate this would be to request a future date in which to announce the deal to the world - but still have the funds from that sale to go ahead and replace the player sold.
  7. It would be help improve user-specific navigation if we could go to a tab, for example: Scouting > Player Shortlist, and from there right-click on the highlighted tab and select to add this as a new menu option so it's directly linked for instant navigation. I realise we're currently able to right-click and select a sub-page from the Scouting menu option, but this would give us that bit more flexibility and easy-access - especially considering that we're already able to re-order the menu options.
  8. Depending on your club, you could try Andrea Papetti, he's at Brescia at the start of the game and very cheap considering his potential. Take a look in the Good Players forum for more recomendations from others.
  9. Currently there's no record of the traits a player has within the scouting report we receive when he has been scouted, however this is information we can see when we click through to their 'Information>Personal Information' page. It would be nice to see this crucial piece of data on a player, as this dictates how they play the game, and more often than not managers are looking for a player to perform a certain way in a specific role.
  10. This may have been a fix that negatively impacts existing saves, try starting a new save and trying it?
  11. Thinking back, it was after I'd scouted around 250 players that it was unlocked.
  12. You can unlock the Hide Attributes option, or purchase it from the store in-game. I can't remember how I unlocked it on my save but it happened half way though my season.
  13. Nope because now when I load it up it shows me the correct animation of Zanolio scoring - must've have been a glitch in the matrix when I saw it in-game, as my keeper definitely saved it in the version I saw (over and over again to make sure I wasn't seeing things). I think what I was actually seeing was the save my keeper made in the build-up to the corner from which the goal was scored from. Move it along people nothing more to see here
  14. Summary: I've just been knocked out of the Italian Cup by a "goal" that my keeper actually saved Description of Issue: It happened as I was making changes to my tactics on the overlay page (by clicking on the 'Tactics' button in the bottom left of the screen), and I'm sure I've noticed this happen previously but didn't check the goal highlight by clicking on the minute in the match stats dropdown. I've attached a save of the game it happened in, please check Roma's 2nd goal in the 58th min (I think), scored by Zaniolo. Roma v Sampdoria.pkm
  15. This has happened in my Sampdoria Serie B save, early in the season I'm taking teams apart by 4s and 5s, and then the 'smaller' teams adapt and play this cautious bank of 7 with the wingbacks and 2 strikers, where they begin to counter my positive, narrow 4-3-1-2 formation...and I start drawing and losing games, fair enough. So I switch to a wide 4-4-2, with attacking wingers and CM/s + CM/d central midfielders, whilst filling those spaces they counter attack into with inverted fullbacks, and it seems to work. I have to say that in this version of the ME I have a lot of joy with BBM on the cutbacks for the from wide areas. I'm also, for the first time, trying to limit the number of TI's I give in favour of PI's, letting my mentality dictate the rest.
