  1. Can you in effect remove nations by saying they are no longer FIFA members, setting reputation to 1, etc,?
  2. Yes, but in game can you focus on getting certain players, (eg: wingers and full-backs), on doing the crossing in these sessions. Particulatrly perhaps a promising young winger that nevertheless needs to work on his crossing. Surely that happens in real life at professional clubs? If a session is run on say attacking down the wings, a coach will at some point want to get one winger to do most of the crossing practice during the session, rather than another winger?
  3. Surely crossing is about hitting the right areas in the centre? Which you can do by yourself.
  4. I;ve noticed on the original FM 2019 database that virtually all African countries have -1 set for transfer preferences for all regions, apart from Africa. That seems daft to me.....
  5. But of course clubs in such a league would be unplayable for a human manager
  6. So this is a way that you could set up a superleague? Choose specific teams for the intercontinental competition, and then remove their league details under the club section of the database
  7. Wouldn;t think it is that outlandish. Scotland have a huge football heritage. And remember Croatia, (a very small country), got to the World Cup Final this year.
  8. Hello, is there any way you can get the league to programme games for Boxing Day, New Years Day , Easter May and the first bank holiday in May? Tried adding these dates to the fixture dates, (under schedule), but no games get programmed for these dates. Is it because I also completed the match days part of the editor, (adding Saturdays at 3.00pm and Wednesdays at 7.45pm)? Thanks very much.
  9. Hello there, Hoping someone can help... How do you set TV dates for the league in a new league system please Thanks very much
  10. That's not extreme at all - 2 games a week. Championship clubs cope with that for much of the season.
  11. Removed info about AVG Anti-virus installed on computer. It hasn't been in fact - just put onto my desktop in readiness for being installed, (I've recently bought the desktop computer so am not totally au-fait with it).
  12. I've also found Football Manager 2011 won;t load. I have downloaded it from steam but when I try to open the game from my Windows 7 desktop, nothing happens. My computer is old - a Dell Optiplex 780 is old but should meet the requirements of the game, according to those advertised by the makers, I believe. What is going on here??!!
  13. Thanks very much. Can I also add the FM2011 editor to my computer through Steam? Only I can;t seem to locate it on Steam!
  14. Inspired by an earlier thread on this part of the forum, I believe that every player should have an entirely random potential ability stat, (except that obviously, it should be at least equal to his current ability). This would mean that it would be less predictable to tell who will be the stars of the future, in the game, (combined with scouts and coaches having far less clue of what a#each player's potential ability level is). SI researchers won;t really know a player's potential ability so this would be entirely realistic. Only a few players in each game should have a really high potential ability level, but there should be a lot that have moderately high level, (but it would be unusual for this to be reached). Additionally, I think two new hidden attributes should be introduced - "love of the game", and "ability to learn". High stats in these levels would mean, (together with other positive factors already in the game), that career progression and high levels of performance in the short-term are more likely A player with a high love of the game would be more likely to eat, sleep and drink football regardless of their level of determination or professionalism levels. They would be more likely to stay in the game at an older age, regardless of their level of pay or career progression,. Conversely a player with a low attribute would be more likely to look for opportunities outside the game when things don;t go that well for him, perhaps be more motivated by money, etc. Certain Mental stats also should be far more volatile for some players than they currently are, perhaps dependant upon how you as a manager, the club's supporters, etc treat the player. I believe determination never changes throughout a player's career? Well, if true I really don;t think that should be the case at all. Furthermore, I believe that determination and teamwork should be hidden stats.
