    There are other attributes that contribute to the ability of a coach/ physio ect. so one physio may have a 20 for physiotherapy but a 2 for determination and a 5 for adaptability, whilst a physio with a 12 physio but also 12 in determination and 12 in adaptability would improve the physio teams level as they are more rounded if that makes sense

    Aye, there are other attributes for sure. But I would like more context about it because in some cases no visual attributes are better than the current staff members. And even in the case where Physiotherapy is 14 compared to my current 20 but Adaptability for example is 13 on the suggest staff member and 12 on my current I wouldn't think that the 14 Physio 13 Adaptability is an improvement on my current 20/12

  2. Howdy,

    Not sure this is worthy of a thread on it's own but couldn't find anywhere to post it. It's kind of a feature request and also a question.

    So as the title read it's regarding the Backroom teams advice when it comes to "Improve quality of X team". Currently I'm managing Crystal Palace and I keep getting suggestions on improving my Physios, Fitness Coaches, Data Analysts and Sport Scientists. This is all well, good that they think we can improve, the problem is:

    Not enough context, which Physio do they think we can improve upon? Their suggestions all have lower stats than my current physios. So I would like more information on why we should hire someone with 15 physiotherapy and fire one of my current who all have 20.

    Is this much like the assistants tactical suggestions, something everyone mainly just ignores or is there something to it? Could a 11 Fitness Coach actually be better than the current 17 Fitness Coach?

    If he's a GK, schedule a couple of sessions of GK training, if he's in the defensive unit make sure you set a focus where they're the primary focus (i.e. Defending training), if he's in the attacking unit do likewise.

    Thanks for info! I have players from all three units complaining about it :D Guess I need to get a new Assistant or take over training myself then!

    There is no point in a thread like this! The FM fan boys refuse to accept there is any faults in this game. They will just try to shut down your views.

    Anyway, you are right. It is broke for sure. Players in this game cause problems all the time - wanting to leave, unhappy with playing time, get annoyed because one of their team mates get sold, get annoyed when one of their team mates doesn’t get sold. FM have messed about with this part of the game far too much.

    The only way to sort out this issue is to just wait for the player to stop sulking and get over it, this shows how broke it is

    It's far from perfect, I don't think anyone is claiming that. But to claim "Players are unhappy because I don't want to sell them so the game is BROKEN" isn't a very good claim. The OP hasn't given us much to go on regarding why they wan't to leave, so it would be very odd if we all just agreed with OP.

    It's obviously a fact that many people do not have these issues, I have played multiple seasons with different teams in FM19 and I almost never have issues with my players, when I do it's usually because I've fined someone too hard for a red. So if this happen all the time you might be doing something wrong. Claiming "Broken" might help you vent some of that frustration but it's not actually true.

    But never mind me, I'm just a FM fan boy...

  5. Hi! 

    I just  started a save with QPR and I've noticed that when I go to player search and pick "Interested in transfer" I still get players like Pulisic, Marcelo etc. But when I scout the  players I often get that they arent actually interested. So most of my  scouting time is spent scouting players competely uninterested. 

    I added value filters but still a majority that shows up isnt actually intersted. 


  6. Hello,

    I'm sort of restarting a thread a I had on the FMT18-forum regarding good android devices to play FMT on.

    I'm currently in possession of a Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 9.7 which was very laggy (both 3D, 2D and in menus) and troublesome when trying to play FMT18. I've still not bought FMT19 since I don't want to experience that level of poor performance again.

    Do anyone have experience with android devices that do not lag in FMT19 and if so what device? The new Tab S4?

    I would rally like to avoid buying an ipad pro but if thats the only reasonable device I might do it since I'm going away travelling for a few months and need my FM fix.

    I remember old board game designer saying: 'We don't sell 'toys' in gameplay, all the choices limited but functional '  Napoleonic game designer.

    I don't doubt problems are not well known by the match engine team. Or they don't work hard. But selling the product another thing.


    So how should this work for those of us who fully enjoy the game? We shouldn't be able to purchase it because a vocal minority is unhappy with certain aspects of the game? I have around 400 hours in the game so far and I'm very happy with my purchase.

    If your finishing is weak, there will be tactical/motivational/personnel attribute reasons for it. It's not just a case of "oh you're away, let's nerf finishing".

    Oh I believe you, it's just that for someone like me it's very hard to understand why. Based on stats I should score more, based on what I see I want to sell every attacker I have. 

  9. The main issue I have with away games is not that my win/loss ratio is much poorer than home, it's rather how the game display it. I've had the issue for several versions of FM. Instead of having trouble creating chances or missplacing passes when we are losing/drawing all that happens is that finishing becomes absolutely horrible. I'm currently on a 8 away game draw/losing-streak and I've created as much as I do at home, but only 4 out of 64 shots from inside the penalty area have been goals.

    And when I look at the game it's not because the opposition have half the team inside their own penalty area, it's just our finishing being extremely weak. Easy shots straight at the goalie, even easier shots far above the goal, the woodwork etc.

    I don't mind it being more difficult away from home, but I don't expect it to only be shown by awful finishing percentile.  

  10. I even get bad responses when I praise my youth players. One was noted as having 10.0 in training rating two reports in a row. I made the mistake of praising him both times, the second resulting in a youth player rolling his eyes and getting annoyed. Can't remember the exact phrase thats used but it was along the lines of "Not this again, why do you keep talking to me?".

    Pretty sure a u18 player for Liverpool FC who get's to train with the First Team a few weeks during pre-season wouldn't mind getting praise two weeks in a row?

    In general the praise aspect is a bit week, I more often get annoyed players from praise than from criticism

    I've just had Brexit announced on mine with the following rules:

    Does this really mean I'll be unable to play any youth player in my first team ever unless I give them 8k p/w :rolleyes: And any youth will need to be on 3k or will be unable to play any games :applause:What does the maximum of 5 players mean exactly?


    Having to give any kind of decent youth a ridiculous wage just so you can see if they progress. Well played

    Got the exact same message a few minutes ago. Might start to look for jobs outside of the UK :P I think this is a pretty hard Brexit.

  12. First competitive game so very little to go on. But this game (screenshot) worries me a bit.

    First of all, Gunn being the worst player on the pitch after an absolute bombardment from us whilst Alisson who let almost everything in have pretty good rating. None of the CCCs where goals and the goals from Southampton were very weak shots that any goalie should easily deal with. 

    Secondly, a bit worried with the ratings in general regarding my defenders, Southampton had pretty much nothing all game and yet every time they even strolled into our half the defenders just let them pass. (I'm playing Control Possession with a few role tweaks). My defenders should have had much much lower rating because Gomez and Trent were both responsible for 2 of their goals.

    Third, not related to the screenshot below, but during pre-season we got 6 penalties in 7 games and missed 4 of them. Both stats a bit worrying. 

    I love the new interface. Love tactics and training so far. All in all it's a very good feeling.

    Anyway, first competitive game, so might get better but these are just my first impressions.
