  1. Body language is an interesting one, hopefully it doesn’t feel like a meaningless obligation in the same vein as press conferences
  2. I feel like most FM players are purists and we want to play progressive football but sometimes just going direct is the obvious solution. I won 5/5 available trophies in my first seasons with San Lorenzo. If things weren't working I'd often change my Inside Forward to a Wide Target Man, he's not the strongest but he's 6'2 (188cm) and a good header of the ball so dominated most fullbacks, who seem to be especially small in Argentina. It seems a bit unrealistic fiddling with player roles when you can occasionally just play to a specific strength.
  3. Have you had many bids for Fernando? I can't remember reading about any
  4. Increasing attribute masking or adding more ambiguity to external players’ attributes is probably something that should be phased in. It’s unrealistic that after a weeks scouting that you know a player’s natural fitness or concentration. For most clubs now it’s not the manager that says make a bid for player x, maybe the player should encouraged away from that behaviour.
  5. The user has massive advantages over the Ai, even if you're an average player you'll do well in the long term because you'll easily build a better squad than who you're up against. I'd say I'm decent at the game but still find it a struggle to break into the top 4 with Leicester in the first few seasons. This year feels a bit easy compared to others because there's a bit of meta with set pieces and crossing, if you utilise those property you can turn an average team into an unrealistically successful one
  6. Do you have other South American leagues loaded? Quite often in confederations outside of Europe most teams barely have any non-greyed out players which makes continental completion really easy
  7. Joao Fernando might have gotten those injuries anyway, it’s rare that a player goes through a career without a couple of serious ones. The same thing could have happened if he had broken through at 21 instead of 17.
  8. Chelsea bought Pulisic quite a while before he actually joined didn’t they? So it’s not wildly unrealistic.
  9. I’m currently managing in China as part of a Pentagon save and you can only have foreign players on the pitch at any one time. Probably half of the foreign players Chinese clubs buy on FM hardly ever play. Makes it doubly frustrating that players kick up a fuss about leaving.
  10. Even FIFA has more detailed pressing options than FM these days
  11. Junior is still a child and he’s played a lot of senior games with no proper pre-season. Obviously FM is just a game but in those circumstances in real life it wouldn’t be surprising if he was perma-knackered.
  12. Eric Odhiambo https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Odhiambo
  13. Cabral is like an aggressive Mbappe
  14. Nieminen is excellent, it’s a shame you’ve lost him so soon. I know you play with two attack duties up front but he would have made a top notch DLF
  15. I've found more success with a 442 this year across a variety of leagues and with different teams. Personally, I'd try DCL as an deep lying forward (on the left of the two) and Edouard as an attacking forward. Train Lopez to play at MR and and play him as supporting inverted winger. Kenenh central midfielder on defend and Winks as a DLP or CM(s). Richarlison as a Wide midfielder on attack. But that's just my preference and on the face of it feels logical, doesn't mean it would pan out that way necessarily
  16. Niemienen looks very handy, you’d be very content with him coming through if you were a Championship club. His personality means he’ll be probably outgrow you quite quickly though
  17. Seeing as I've made a few other comparisons already, I'll chip in with another... he looks like a (very!) young Kevin De Bruyne to me.
  18. Ronaldo owns a stake in Valladolid, not sure if that information is of any use tbh
  19. The standard of players is better than I thought it would be for that level
  20. Are there fake shots in the ME? I can’t recall ever seeing one
  21. What happened in the Libertadores?
