  1. I have several domestic and foreign affiliated clubs. I expect to see the player reports of these clubs but i can only see my first two feeder teams' player reports. When i want to look at others, "player reports" screen is still available but they are all "unknown". I think it is about the "first option to buy players". Those two have that option on the list.
  2. I know this is a known issue but it was unbelievable. I thought it was a loop and would go forever when i saw 10 missed in a row. Most of them were ugly penalties. Luckily it was my player who scored in the end. I saw another thread telling 13/26 missed and 9 in a row but mine is far the worst i guess. Anyone has a record worse than mine?
  3. I tried to help the OP with the experience i had if you have read my post. You chose to go on "frustrating" word. It is not wrong or frustrating people offering help, that's why we are here. it's frustrating for the posters, especially the experienced ones. Of course it's all about tactics in any situation that can be solved with help but things must also be realistic, reasonable and logical. Anyway, you are right.
  4. I didn't say it's frustrating or wrong getting help. Sure we all get help and try to help each other here. What is frustrating is when you feel there is something wrong about the dynamics of the game beyond tactics and people tell you to go "tactics forum" thinking you just can't play and moan about it. It is a long common problem that we all create lots of chances but fail to win in some part of the game. Maybe we shouldn't create that much chances. It's about the right balance. We love the game and expect it to get better and better. That's all.
  5. I exactly know what you mean and it is even more frustrating when people say "head to the tactics forum" but this is a game and it has its own dynamics. I also started a similar topic about this. https://community.sigames.com/topic/403024-annoying-performance-drops/ Even you dominate the game, try making little adjustments on your tactics and see what happens. For example, I was dominating every game, oppositions were parking the bus and i was struggling to win, loosing lots of undeserved points. Then i disabled "work into box" and enabled "dribble less". It worked better as team started playing a little more direct when we have the ball. I don't mean playing direct football, I still play short passing game but i could find more space doing this. You will still face performance drops whatever you do but maybe you can still win. Quality wonderkids will struggle to perform consistently and sometimes players may not be as good as we think. They may have quality but may still need time to develop. Opposition teams will adapt tactics and try to frustrate you somehow. What i see is, going wide and crossing from the flanks work even better in this version but it is also hard when opposition park the bus. Maybe these are all irrelevant to your situation. I just wanted to share my experience.
  6. Yes but you still won't be able to register players who are suspended or injured for the semi-final. Will those players be available to register for the final? I checked it. You can't register players who were available for the previous matches but you can register those who were suspended or injured.

  10. Sorry Svenc. I couldn't completely get what you mean. I am not looking for someone to share my opinions and i reject the idea of "you cant play, you moan". As i say, i am experienced in this game enough to realise differences. What i want to tell is, as the title says, sudden performance drops are just annoying. Compared to previous versions, I have done more than enough to achieve my goals. I have even made several huge money transfers, which is not me, but inconsistency is a real problem. Also, being unable to open strict defences of pretty average teams and surprise terrible performances from quality players seem so fake sometimes.
  11. Yeah me too. I cant remember for how many years i have been playing slow possession football but what i want to tell is, there is a difference in this version beyond tactics. My post consists of two parts. I am disgusted with the sudden weird performance drops in the first part. Like beating top class teams away with ease but suddenly struggle to beat a weak team. In the second part i complain about the advantage of direct play, as my defenders run away when they pump the ball forward and their only forward takes the ball and scores. And i think i have played FM series enough to realise the exeggrated advantage of direct play in this version. Of course i respect your opinion if you don't think that way. But again, the main problem in this topic of mine is performance drops. Actually, i may also consider myself successful as i became a worldwide reputation club in EPL with a few trophies but far below my expectations. Performance drops and ugly marking ruin my consistency. And also there is a Man Utd bug to deal ahead of me who plays monster direct football. My players suddenly become sunday league footballers against them. 1 win and 2 draws in 16 games against Mourinho. Man Utd were with substitutes in that 1 win. Maybe EPL is different in FM17.
  12. I am sick of it. I am fed up and it is not my tactics. I refuse to play fast direct football, i won't. This year's game is all about it.
  13. Starting with 2018-19 season, they have won the title 5 times back to back and 4 champions league title, 2 FA and 1 EFL Cup. Now in the 6th season they started with 5 wins out of 5, 11 goals scored and 0 conceded. Sure i have lost at home again. In 16 games against Mourinho's side, I have 1W 2D 13L. I remember the game i won. It was FA Cup and Man Utd were with substitutes. If they dominate the game, they win. If i dominate the game, again they win. Once i scored 4, they scored 6. My players are paralyzed against De Gea. Nightmare was Lewandowski for a few seasons and then now Hazard, Griezman, Dybala... Sometimes Mou admits being lucky against me before the match but after the win he always humiliates. I hate this game sometimes.
  14. It is also related with the player's wage. Higher wage players are more likely to be granted work permit. Maybe you would get WP for him if you offered a high wage.
  15. What i know about penalties is "dont be persistent about the taker". If he misses one, he will go on missing. If he scores, don't touch him. It is somehow all about the consistency in this version. I don't pay attention to those claiming "penalties are just normal". It is not.
