  1. The opposite can happen as well, where players can increase determination by 10. professionalism can also go up or down in the same way.
  2. Determination can increase with time but only very slowly along with all other mental attributes depending on how you respond in the game to the board and press confs, match speechs etc. Working with youngsters and adaptability never seem to change
  3. Can you pinpoint why 3rd season was so good. I have often wondered if form and league position in the months before the intake day is significant. Also i have noticed that in lower leagues (playing in dafuges challenge etc) i seem to get better players through than when higher up the leagues (judging by the coaches report of their potential ability in terms of league). This is in spite of higher rep and youth recruitment!
  4. some nationalities are just more likely to come through than others depending on where you are managing. In England youth often have carribean 2nd nationalities or english speaking african countries, in france or belgium they have french speaking african 2nd nationalities.
  5. It might depend on what you told them at the start of the season in terms of league position (14th is considered midtable or avoiding relegation i think) It could also be ambitious players expecting more or maybe the players see a very high rep or CA team and just think they should be doing better. The players will always blame you for any underachievement i've noticed.
  6. I can't understand how the players were bought for so little money by the big clubs. What were the attendances like, was there a difference?
  7. The lack of CCC's must have disappointed you along with those players who couldn't even manage a match rating of 10
  8. I imagine that taking charge is still within the rules of the challenge. I had heard it was possible for this to happen in previous years but i had never seen it. Hornchurch probably has a high rep having been in higher leagues only a few years before the 1st season. (on FM16 it was 1550)
  9. Out of interest which team did come up
  10. Last year he was at isthmian south level, this year he is conf national so he might be a lot better in attributes. He was the assist king for me in midfield and averaged about 7.5-8.0 in conf and L2
  11. Thats an interesting idea which i have never considered, i only look for JPP and JPA and maybe coaching attributes when looking at ass man.
  12. A professional player will only moan if completely forgotten. A temperamental player will moan if they miss a single game
  13. This is my understanding of what players will expect, no players in fm think they won't play except goalies
  14. Don't know how he is this year but Fabio Saraiva was outstanding at that level and higher for me last year even though he doesn't improve or even look that good
  15. Are you under pressure from the owner after last season,they can't have been impressed with 11th. i assume they want you to win the league now?
