  1. I'm confused a little about training rating. I assumed it meant effort given in training and was a little unhappy to see my 33 year old captain as the worst performer. I'd think he would set the standard. However, after reading the OP it is based on attribute development and morale. So I guess it makes sense that a 33 year old would be on the decline. Is the 'attitude/effort' towards training not represented in training rating then?
  2. Started the game unemployed. I'm unable to attend any matches. I've tried on a team's fixtures screen and also on the league fixtures screen. I click the 'vs' but nothing happens na game day comes and goes.
  3. Well yes heading can be trained in individual training IRL but always in the context or defending aerial balls or I'm guessing wing play for attack.
  4. I always have this problem too. The opposition changed to a 4-3-3 narrow on minute 80 and from then it was obvious that I was going to concede. Even though from this period onwards I had 2 half chances and a CCC, and they only had 1 half chance - guess what? Their half chance goes in on minute 91 and we draw. Like the OP I find playing against a narrow 4-3-3 impossible - even when I'm the better team and create more chances I can't win.
  5. I had this problem with the game not starting up. In the end I just used the European, South American and some Asian leagues and that seemed to fix it.
  6. It's happening again. Different team, same s*** within the space of 4 days.
  7. I've just taken over a team in the Czech Republic and am trying to get familiar with the rules of the leagues and cups. We're just 13 games into a 30 game championship and one team has already qualified for next seasons Europa League and I have no idea why. Looking at their schedule they have not yet won the only domestic trophy in Czech Republic so it can't be that, and according to the rules of the league the qualification for Europe isn't decided until the league gets split after 30 games. Does anyone with any knowledge of Czech football have any idea why they have qualified?
  8. It can seem strange but the Turkish FA want to encourage minutes for players who can play for their own national team to develop them, so I can understand it.
  9. Is he declared for the Romanian national team? If so it might mean that you can only have 14 players who aren't eligible for the Turkish national team. There is a similar rule in Russia. Even if a player has a Russian passport/eligibility, if he has represented another team at international level he is considered foreign.
  10. What will happen if I resign from a club and become unemployed while in the middle of doing a coaching badge? Will I stop with the course or can I still complete it whilst unemployed?
  11. Having just recorded a couple of decent wins and tying to hold on in the last 10 mins of games it seems that my problem was having players in the middle/attacking third who don't have a passing outlet. I noticed a couple of chances conceded when a player in the AM strata didn't have any options and so held onto the ball. lost it, and with one kick the ball was over my defence and into a 1v1 situation. Luckily they only hit the bar but since then I've been playing with my 2 CMs as a CM/S and AP/S giving whoever has the ball a forward runner. I still have enough numbers back so if I lose the ball and they score then fair enough.
  12. Thanks for all the advice. What I've been doing is going to a contain/fluid and keeping my existing TI's of play out of defence, retain possession, pass into space, and prevent short GK distribution. Then I change my formation to a 5-1-4-0 with 2x FB/D and 3x CD/D, 1x DLP/D, 2x DW/D, 2x BWM/D. The goals I've been conceding are largely individual errors, so my CD trying to head the ball back to my goalkeeper and it going short, or a shot from long range being deflected in by another of my CD's. It's just frustrating as hell - especially the games where I was 3-2 up and 3-0 up. It is like I knew it was going to happen, I just can't figure out how to stop it.
  13. In the two games I was in the lead for I chose to play contain, with retain possession but I'm wondering if the retain possession instruction made my defender try a header back to the keeper rather than just getting the ball away.
