  1. So your point is to showcase how routinely I’m irked by the ME. I don’t think this is what mods should be doing tbh. Yes the game does wind me up because yes there are anomalies and yes I’ve bought every version for years so I’ve got a right to convey my opinions. for the record ........I play Kane as a DLF and here are his stats under my watch. Cue knowing laughs between some of the mods and users. My team are always in the top 6. Always score plenty of goals. The most outstanding CF of his generation has barely hit double figures in 5 years. He missed the first 3 pens under my management
  2. I know you can’t see the full picture and I do appreciate you trying to help nonetheless. I’m taking your advice seriously. my setup was relatively conservative. My defensive line was average. These tactics and players had shut out Liverpool and city. I was in a neutral mode as I know the game wanted to sting me.....local derby, poor opposition wanting to prove doubters wrong etc. I don’t mind the ambiguity. I don’t mind the fact it happens. I’m not even that bothered by this result. I’m trying to call out a FM anomaly. The match that’s going to bite you on the bum. Your set up
  3. I get the points. All valid. It may be Onana, who after winning the golden glove last season, seems to be conceding a lot. Three goals were through balls behind de ligt who was pretty culpable considering I pushed him into a cover duty after the first goal. But the rating absolves him. Can really blame the FBs for through balls.
  4. Interesting. How would a FM player know this is irrelevant to their team? Is it in the manual?
  5. I did look at the stats. Nothing stood out. So what does side preference make a difference to?
  6. Haha. That’s not my argument. I don’t want the game to let me win. when I first buy the game I hate it if I win the league in my first season. I want a challenge TMS. but game should challenge with reasons and obstacles to be overcome...... not the ubiquitous ‘they’ve proved they are no pushovers’. You ,it’s find that monotonous. Even you TMS!
  7. I did t find anything obvious but....two goals were conceded by balls round the back of De Ligt who I’d played as LCB and having reviewed I see he prefers RCB. It’s something to look at. Cheers!
  8. I get that and do refer to it in my post. Shock results don’t disappoint me, it’s the manner. The discrepancy above refers to my CBs and CMs getting good ratings despite a bloody awful performance. That suggests a problem to me. Great CBs playing well at the same Conceding a hat trick to a very average striker. It feels to me that there was very little I could do. spurs defeat against Zagreb was all about squad morale and attitude. Both of which are supposedly excellent in my squad in the save.
  9. Lol. Sympathetic as ever TMS. I took the advice @HUNT3R gave seriously and re-assessed the stats. the game is full of artificial constructs. Obviously. It was confirmed by a moderator that the opposition suddenly changes their performance against you after half a season based on your first half results. As if game 19 is an official refresh point IRL. Nothing you can do but adapt. don’t pretend to me that the game hasn’t got a mechanism for weak teams raising their game against you. That’s fine. It happens IRL. But when you’ve constructed a brilliant defensive team, with very high lea
  10. What stats do you advise I should be looking for in particular Hunter? I’d love to find a solution to,these anomalies. like I say I don’t mind a surprise result. But the pattern is FM is too regular, programmed and predictable. Feels like nothing can be done. My teams have high leadership averages and we still only lose to the small teams.
  11. So many questions from this game but most of all....how did my world class defence which rarely concedes allow a striker with 1 goal in 8 games, very average attributes and poor movement to score a hat trick. how did the CBs then get good ratings? hiw can they shut out city and Liverpool but fall to pieces against Azmoun who??? it’s because the game decides it’s time for a freak result so a freak result shall happen. It’s not the tactics for anyone who wants to argue that, my team copes very well against far superior 4231. I deliberately wasn’t too attacking and chose balanced t
  12. I couldn’t agree more. It’s like they were warned off using the code. Why else make such a backward step? Gaming is meant to leap forward graphically. FM is the only game in history than went into full reverse. I still we suck it up! The drop in style between 17 and 18 was truly shocking. We’ve never been told why.
  13. All valid replies. I guess when somebody says that ambiguity is good and it replicates football there is a part of me which thinks isn’t that making it easy for SI? Liverpool Arsenal spurs are all great examples of ambiguity in 2021. But at least when klopp says mark a player he knows when and where. When he thinks of player attributes he knows if that’s a coaches assessment, his assessment or another metric. Etc etc It’s a great game which frustrates me. As a spurs fan it can’t get much more real life than that ha! I just think tactics and attributes need some updating. The same for a l
  14. I do kind of agree. And if the mysteries are revealed I guess it will make it a walk in the park. But I’d like more clarity with greater tactical and strategic challenges. It’s just a bit too much guesswork for me.
  15. Just thinking about how FM skilfully keeps its players in the dark about quite a few things.I think it’s intentional on the part of SI. I play FMT on iPad but it’s relevant across the whole stable of products. 1. training. I bought Camavinga from Rennes as a complete midfielder aged 21. Sure I’m not alone! Training him as a RPM, my favourite position being a Modric fan. Within Weeks his attributes are dropping like a stone and he’s gone from a 4.5 to 3 star midfielder. No explanation. No obvious reason. No obvious solution (in FMT). Just FMs little secret. 2. tactics. One of my least
  16. Haha exactly! Poorer graphics in a game 5 years on. How does that happen in gaming???? Couldn’t agree more. I’m beginning to think they must have been under some copyright threat for the graphics code in 17. It suddenly got much worse in 18 and is still worse than 17 even now. I’ve asked it before and I’ll probably ask it again but which other game gets away with a worsening product?
  17. Then highlights gone Assistant feedback gone match regularly skipping half time still there data glitches still there to name but a few. I’m enjoying it overall but oh my word FMT is the only game that gets away with losing features and offering less than it did 5 years ago.
  18. The match often skips half time so I can’t see average positions etc. Where do I find them and assistant feedback? cheers
  19. Interesting article. Shows how thin the margins between success and failure are. I won the europa league with spurs and got to final of world club championship. Within a few weeks I was losing 5-0 to West Ham. Statistically it was an even game. One of those matches that infuriates as you can’t explain why it’s happening on FM. but I guess, considering the above, klopp must have same frustrations IRL. and clearly has had it before at Dortmund. football bloody hell
  20. This is true. I’ve read plenty of articles trying to explain what the Liverpool problem is. it’s all speculation, even Klopp might not know. For what it’s worth my opinion is that it took all their mental strength to collect 200 points in 2 seasons and be unbeatable at home. Once that momentum was taken away they had no mental reserves left. (Although it could be salah is disrupting...) What is correct is retaining the EPL is bloody difficult. Probably for psychological reasons. But how does SI go about factoring all this into the game - hence why great teams stay great in FM.
  21. “By the end Liverpool had extended that run to five home defeats. It is a mind-boggling collapse on the back of that 68-game unbeaten run. Football is often cast as a science, the players as mobile data units, predictable in their movements, their chemistry, their interactions. But never let it be said this is anything other than a business of emotion, anxiety and human qualities, bound up in how the players feel. Sixty-eight without defeat into five in a row: this really is wild. No matter what we throw at it, football remains the most brilliantly unknowable of human activities.“
  22. And, as I mentioned, the system is working well for others. Let’s not over complicate...I’m playing him as a DLF in an attacking system. Not sticking him as a defensive FB. I don’t doubt other people rinse his qualities but let’s not forget last year, as an experiment, someone put a 17 year old keeper up front for Liverpool in fm20 and they scored for fun. So the ME may be a giant leap forward or nonsensical anomalies may still crop up. cheers for your help though TMS.
  23. Ah. I congratulate you on your humour. If not your assistance.
  24. Could be. I mean getting Harry Kane scoring shouldn’t be difficult! 18 games is faintly ludicrous tbh. Hence the post.
