  1. Feel free to test the team I'm the researcher for, Egersund (Egersunds IK). The player squad is up to date, with updated PPMs, as well as youth players. Some small fixes (contracts etc) is coming for the official release date (hopefully). It's one of the best teams in the Norwegian second divison, but they somehow never manage to achieve promotion, with two 2nd places, a 3rd, and a 4th in recent times. The club has relatively good facilities and coaches, two of the very best strikers in the league (Markus Naglestad scored a record amount of goals this season, and Bob Sumareh somewhat of a legend in the division), so it probably won't be too hard to achieve promotion if a player manages them.
  2. I'm the researcher for Egersund - I sent a mail to my head researcher what changes needs to be made for Egersund - if any higher ups see this feel free to change it directly if there's time before official release! New contracts for players and staff: Bubacarr Sumareh to 31.12.2020 (signed 18.10.19) Deniss Korneiciks to 31.12.2020 (signerd (20.10.19) Marcel Wawrzynkiewicz to 31.12.2021 (signed 19.10.19) Markus Naglestad to 31.12.2020 (signed 28.10.19) Chris Sleveland to 31.12.2020 (signed 25.10.19) Nikolai Larsen Berg to 31.12.2020 (signed 26.10.19) Manager, Ojan Bijan to 31.12.2020 (signed 01.11.19) Player transfer: Ermal Hajdari from Levanger (signed 27.10.19), contract to 31.12.2020 (25 games 7 goals this season if you want to write in history from the season that was). Staff released: Player/Assistant Manager Are Strømland New staff: New Assistant Manager, Aleksander Midtsian. Signed from Brodd, where he was manager. Signed contract 29.10.19, contract to 31.12.2020. Edit: The stadium, Idrettsparken, has the wrong capacity. It's not an 5300 capacity all seater stadium. In the XLS sheet I sent in I specified the capacity to be 2600, with 500 seats. Expansion capacity at 5300.
  3. Thanks for responding - I have to emphasise again that I think you're doing a very good job, I agree that parts of my post was unnessecary. Passion trumps reason sometimes! It's a good point to make that looking at single attributes doesn't tell the whole picture. One can score a lot of headers from having good mental stats as you say. I agree that Gomez can go further, and should have higher PA than Matip. To me this is a case of "should the game reflect the current reality, or be a mix between current form and the form of the last 3 years"? It's hard to juggle, but I lean more toward that if you show good form for over 6 months (which Matip has done now I believe), that should be reflected in the game. He's our clear first choice IRL, with Klopp even preferring Lovren over Gomez lately. But when I start up a FM20 game, there's no reason not to pick Gomez since he has similar CA, and more room for development. --- Of course, Matip doesn't necessarily need to have his attributes increased. Gomez could have his reduced a bit to reflect him struggling a bit this season. Ox has barely played for us, but I can remember at least 5 really good long range goals - which is pretty impressive considering how few games he's played. Just recently he's had three beautiful goals from outside the box (2x Genk and 1x Arsenal). Ox said recently that Klopp was urging him to shoot more too. Do we have any other player that we want to shoot outside the box as much as Ox? I see that Salah has 15 in Long shots, but I feel like he's scored fewer long range goals, especially if you take into consideration how many games Salah has played in comparison. Of Salah's first 50 goals, only 3 were outside the box. And one of those was vs an open goal. (https://www.liverpoolfc.com/news/first-team/335035-mohamed-salah-50-premier-league-goals-stats)
  4. Adrian seems to be a bit weirdly tuned. 17 eccentricy and 1 flair? 15 agility and 12 strength? I see him more as "balanced" in terms of agility and strength, and not overly in the agile camp. I also think Fabinho, while of course very good ingame, could increase his attributes even further. He's among our elite players now, in the same category as Salah/Mane/Bobby/Alisson/Van Dijk imo. It wouldn't be inaccurate to raise many of his 14-15 attributes up to 16. (Strength, passing, work rate, team work, concentration, decisions, crossing). He's playing like a ballwinner and a deep lying playmaker simultanously, and doing it excellently.
  5. Robertson is actually really fast. Much faster than Trent, and often uses his acceleration and pace to get past players. I've never seen him lose a sprint duel, while Trent gets beaten for pace by players who aren't even particularily fast at times. Agree that Gini's stamina is too low, among other stats. If you compare him to Hendo, they have similar flair rating for example. Gini has 10x more flair than Hendo!
  6. https://theathletic.com/1327966/2019/11/01/trent-alexander-arnold-exclusive/ Trent A-A should have Pep Lijnders as favoured personell. Says he was "massive" for him, that he helped shape his career, and that they had a strong bond. Apparently the two of them trained together for hours after normal training. Another change I'd suggest for TAA is remove his "tries long-range free kicks" (he doesn't shoot free kicks from abnormal distances), and add "switches ball to other flank" instead.
  7. Yeah I don't agree with Krawietz getting the Assistant Manager role over Lijnders. They both have the official title of Assistant Manager IRL - but it seems to me like Lijnders is the one doing the most "assistant manager-like" job for the club, while Krawietz is more of an analysis guy. Ps. Lovely to see Wijnaldum's "balance" stat finally being as high as he deserves. I still think he's slightly undertuned. Attributes like Jumping Reach, Bravery, Leadership, Crossing, Flair, Vision could all go up a point or two. Matip is going to be hard to justify using over Gomez in the game. The game has Gomez as more determined, stronger, faster, with a better first touch and balance. I don't think that's the case, unless you base the attributes on the start of the previous season. Salah's preferred foot is "Left", but IRL it's "Left only". His right foot is on the same level as John Arne Riise's - terrible. Mane's vision at 15? No way Jose. He'd have so many assists with that vision! His Strength at 11 is also very low - when in real life he's kind of strong. Jumping reach 9, heading 13 is also very inaccurate considering all the great headers he's scored. Ox Long Shots 13? I'd argue that should be his best attribute - it's been that during his time with us at least. Trent's Acceleration and Pace at 14 each is a bit generous. As I've said previously he has shown a lack of pace at certain times. I'd reduce each by at least 1, and increase some of his other attributes to make up for it. Henderson ridiculed him recently in a FIFA stat unveiling, where it was obvious that they both knew Hendo was much faster than him (they made fun of the game not reflecting that). Good job overall, as always!
  8. Fair enough. I still feel like clubs like Liverpool and Man Utd could at least use their on threads, as there will be plenty of feedback on those. (Last off-topic post from me, sorry)
  9. Are we free to make individual threads for the PL clubs? It's kind of messy to have it all in one.
  10. Performance. I want everything to be as close to "instant" as possible, when leaving one screen to another. I hate when it feels clunky and unresponsive.
  11. That's something I've always missed in FM. In the very old Premier Manager games, there was a screen where you could see your stadium, and how it evolved after expansions. Something like this would be amazing in FM - figuring out the weaknesses in the stadium and how to improve it. Everything from parking, to more standard stuff like expanding the capacity could be included. It's not "realistic" that the manager deals with this, but it could be very fun, which is more important.
  12. ...is the standard reply you get when suggesting changes to the board in your first couple of days (or weeks) as a manager in FM19. For FM20 I think you should remove this. If the idea has merit, and the money is there - surely the board wouldn't be so foolish as to deny it just because you've recently been hired? What's the logic in them hiring you for the job, and then proceeding not to listen to your ideas? Suggestion: Remove this handicap new managers are given.
  13. A bit sad to see no proper discount for people who own all previous versions of FM. I like the thing you did with FM17 where you got 5% discount for each version you own up to 25%. I also think club researchers all over the world should get a good discount. Without them (us) there is no proper Football Manager, imo.
  14. My biggest let down is that the game itself feels a lot slower. I get a 2 second delay when clicking on a player in the squad before the player screen appears.
