  1. SpartanUTD

    Squad List invalid

    OK thank you guys. I normally have a massive U20 or U21 squad, but just took Valencia over2 months ago and don't have much of reserves.
  2. How many times did you replay each match?
  3. I never knew or checked about the squad requirements for Euro Cup. So now, after I made some transfers in & out during January, I got to a stage where I don't have enough players trained by a club in Spain. So, I cannot register my 25 players squad for Euro Cup, which means I cannot move on with the game. Is there anyway out of this?
  4. During the match, I changed formation from 4-2-4 back to 4-2-3-1, so the RHS SC stays in, while the LHS SC is meant to be substituted by an MC/DLP. So, the SC is shown to be at an MC position, but he is not really, until he goes out and replaced by the MC (this is what normally happens). Well, this substitution never happened and the SC kept playing at a MC/DLP position, which is obviously disadvantaging my team. I did press the "cancel pending changes" a few times, but it does not seem to work. Unfortunately, this left me no choice but to press CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart the match, which I hate doing. It's probably happened 2 or 3 times before. Is there any way out of this?

    30 seasons, I have always been punishing players heavily and if they keep being distracted and useless, like my FBR who let 3 crosses (=3 goals) in his last match for me, they are going straight into the transfer list. If they don't like me, I'll get some new ones. I'll be fining them till they drop dead

    The 4-4-2 I used after the December Bayern game, worked well, till we got smashed in the semi-final. This is what I don't get. WHY did they go to such a low performance suddenly, when everything seemed to be rolling? The 4-2-3-1 tactics have worked brilliantly before, even for defending. In my 30 seasons, I never conceded 7 goals before
  7. I took over the team in ruins and I got them up to the 4th position in the league and semi-final in the Cup (my 1st game was against Bayern Munich in December). Everything was rolling and suddenly, in the semi-final, a totally unacceptable performance got us smashed at 5-0 by inferior Hertha. Since that game, they seem to have completely given up!!! Every player who plays under 6.3AR gets a 2 weeks fine and if they complain too much, they get transfer listed. I know that you might say that fines are not for a weekly basis, but this is my way and this is what I always do. What frustrates me most, is that it looks like any opponent, no matter how weak or strong, seem to score with a minimum effort, like a lob from the GK, one header from one striker, pass to the other striker, and he scores. What is it happening? Why my team suddenly got into a nirvana, they cannot score and concede 2/3 of the shots towards the goal?
  8. It's been the 3rd time it does it in the pat few months (in game's months). It also "forgets" to apply changes or substitutions that I have set and confirmed from the tactics tab. It is extremely frustrating, especially that I am an FM player who categorises lot of players, I have millions of live notes about assessed scouted players and when the match freezes, not only I am loosing the match which I usually won, but also all my notes and players assessments. WHAT do you think might be the reason that causes this?
  9. Now this happened too! The opponent player "is playing the ball down the line", but he is actually inside the pitch! Does this affect the match itself?
  10. I mainly use the spacebar but it just never worked this time.
  11. Sometimes, match engine freezes. Most of the times, it doesn't seem to be able to load the blue button -bottom right- for "confirm changes" (Tactics tab during half-time), but by pressing "cancel pending changes", it comes back to normal. Then, I can go back to tactics and it usually does what I want and restarts as normal. This time though, it doesn't seem to work at all. The "cancel pending changes" button is inactive and there is no option for Play button. Any solutions before I press CTRL+ALT+DEL?
  12. I must admit that it went better than expected. 2 wins at 8-0 in 4 days, as well as qualified for quarter finals of the German FA Cup
  13. I was wondering how realistic it is to play 2 games with 1 day gap only and in another case, 2 games in a row without a single day of rest? I remember older versions of FM and CM where you could apply to the FA for a change of date for a match. I was wondering if this is possible in FM2013?
  14. I recently had another conversation about FM2013 Team instructions and its sliders, Match instructions and Player Instructions. It has never been clear what overwrites one another. Example 1: I might set in the TI an aggressive mentality with zonal marking, to avoid my team's shape getting torn apart during counter attacks and in the game I will set "hassle opponents", which seems to automatically set marking to man-to-man. In real life, it would not make sense to tell players one thing and a different when as a manager, we'd speak t the team. Example 2: I could set a player to play short pass but in the TI I set "direct pass", which is rather long pass. What will the player do? What is set in the TI or its own instructions? I never really understood why I need a "shout", as far I can manipulate my MI during the game and depending on how the match goes?
