    [ENGLAND] Brentford Data Issues

    Maupay's Temperament and Sportsmanship too high. Dirtiness too low. Full range of the 1-20 scale needs using. Filthy little stamper who has the gall to accuse a player of diving after he's left half his studs in him. Repeat offender now. Romaine Sawyers guilty of cynical trips off the ball. Dirtiness 7 far too low. Sportsmanship 12 too high. Dalsgaard lost his head completely trying to cope with Roberts & Dyer so 14 Sportsmanship and Temperament too high there as well. Get that the team as a whole is going through a tough time but those lads stood out as cooking under the pressure.

    Perhaps 'Brings ball out of defence' more appropriate? Certainly something he did for Wales as the left-sided centreback. Don't know how it works with fullback roles.

    If he "rarely dribbles anymore" then how is he "running with the ball down the left often". PPMs are a player's tendency to ignore a manager's instruction, not follow them. He should only have the PPM if he does an exceptional amount of dribbling for a fullback, deciding to do so instead of passing, or clearing the ball, even when it's not appropriate. If he's acting entirely based on a manager's instruction, then he should have no PPM. Dribble More is a very common instruction in the fullback role/duties. It's redundant and inhibits the player's ability to play any other way.

    [ENGLAND] Ipswich Town Data Issues

    Emyr Huws Injury Proneness should be a lot higher than 13. 18-20 surely given his record.

    Paul Dummett's home reputation is probably too high given his international standing. Looks a bit quick based on what I've seen of him, too. Ben Davies' Runs With Ball Down Left PPM doesn't reflect how he plays irl. Very rarely have I seen him try to take someone on down the wing.

    [ENGLAND] Reading Data Issues

    Chris Gunter is left-footed in the database. Should be right-footed. Very much second choice to Connor Roberts for Wales now, so his Home Rep will need looking at in the next phase.

    It's a friendly so even if he plays (almost certainly won't) he's still qualified for England. We don't get many dropouts after players represent us in the youth levels (as Rabbi has) but could still happen.

    Low 150s is an amazing PA. He's not particularly athletic so I'm not sure anything higher is remotely realistic.

    I disagree. How our data is communicated to players in game is if anything more important to get right than under the hood accuracy. And even if it wasn't, getting hammered during the football season isn't excellent professionalism. Maybe in the '80s and '90s but not any more. Standards are higher among top level athletes.
  10. I don't think it has any effect on the movements made, just the player on the ball's tendency to wait and play that pass should it appear.
  11. The actual way to fix the issue is to sell them and buy players that don't second guess your training schedules.
  12. It actually refers to attributes, not specific training sessions they want to be doing.

    Leaving at the end of contract is a player's decision in the game. It's the club/manager that have decided not to offer him a new contract irl. If that gets set then human managers won't be able to offer him a new deal if they want to keep him, which he seems entirely open to (provided they meet his insane asking price).

    Pace 11 isn't slow. It's faster than the average professional footballer. Dele's always whinging about his speed in FIFA, doesn't deserve an upgrade imho.

    A bit more clarity would help with players like Dan James, who is - in basic terms - absolutely rapid. But he also takes quite a long time to reach his top speed. He can beat a lot of players in the Championship with a quick burst over 5 yards, but when he gets some space to open out he seems to find 2 or 3 extra gears that players around him simply don't have. Is that good ACC (current rating in the database is 15) or would a lower ACC value (maybe 8-10) be more appropriate in the match engine, bolstered by his high PAC value (I seem to remember Bale and Ronaldo having similar attribute distributions two or three FMs ago)?
