  1. But based on everything you've seen why would it be any better, they've fixed the low intakes for active leagues, if you only have 1 league active then surely you'd expect to see a massive drop off, if anything its great there are 600 extra as thats the real number would be interesting to see a comparison with 5 active leagues up
  2. Halfway though the season... Crawling out of the woodwork to say, I was wrong, good job researchers haha. Though I will forever maintain Martial and Rashford are seriously overrated, Bruno Fernandes is just unreal, the penalties help. but hey, they matching in game to IRL
  3. Hi @Francis Mooney thanks for getting back to me, it's fixed now following tips on how to reset it from another user!
  4. Posted this in bugs and not had any response. Since the last update players nationalities have disappeared from the attributes view (the view I always use as dont like format of profile page) I thought it was due to custom logos which i removed and it still didnt fix it, tried changing resolution and zoo %age and that didnt help either. anyone have any advice?
  5. Another season, 5 penalties, 1 scored. Harry Kane was my PK taker
  6. Hi, since the last update ive noticed a really infurating bug. The atrributes page no longer shows a players nationality,, I never use the profile page as i hate the layout and the attribute graph is never as big. I thought it may be due to a logo pack so removed the nationality files, no difference. Changes resolution, zoomed in and out, is this just me?
  7. Having a nightmare with it, 7 pens this season scored one. It seems fine in shootouts but in game penalties are almost always missed. Had a similiar conversion last season
  8. Never been displayed this way in previous versions. But WC displays "no award given" on years the comp never ran. Assume its a bug, used to be much cleaner to see with the awards being shown concurrently.
  9. I had one player be unhappy with a teamtalk at the start of the season, since then, whenever one player decides he's over it, another immediately complains about team talks (even if the game was a week ago). My latest one was Carroll deciding he was happy and longstaff announcing hes upset with them (24th of Feb) depite the prior game being 20th and everyone being happy with it. Carroll hasnt even played when he said he was unhappy... Uploaded save file as Jops.fm to Sicloud
  10. Appreciate the response Simon thanks for taking the time. I have no doubt they will be terrible and then have another outrageous run to end the season
  11. Yes, I think I've tried to stay away from mentioning CA, I think it's less to do with the actual CA and more the distribution of attributes on certain players, like with the players i've mentioned I haven't called out their CA as having them overrated but the way their attributes are distributed means certain players tend to vastly outperform their real life counterparts. I mean the squad of 25 may have some actual stinkers in there who are well below the rest of the team which may drag it down too (I haven't looked I should add) I mean you could probably make a 140 CA player with
  12. Appreciate the response to the general Man U discussion, It's helpful to know where the soak tests have them finishing, but are we sure that is actually right? Do think think they are a 3rd placed team? I would argue they have shown recently they are bottom side of the top 6. I mean, essentially they came out the Corona break way better than anyone else. I mean after Jan they went on a 15 game unbeaten run , and drew 3 won 6 after Rona. Biggest differentiator is Bruno Fernandes (who's rating I think is fine) Likewise I dont have an issue with Greenwood, I just think Martial/Pogba/Rashford are
  13. Completely prepatred to get shut down for this, but I can't help but feel Man U as a whole are massively overrated, in the Beta they came 2nd in the first season, and in my current save they are sitting 1st in the Prem having won all their games, I just think there must be something missing from their ratings or Solkjaer that sees this happening? Lets take some specific example... Rashford... 14 finishing. Generally throughout his career he's massively underperformed against his xG. What this seems to tell me, is his off the ball/ability to get in the right places is rig
  14. Feel like Jones is more like those annoying regens that come through as 120/150 and you think they'll be amazing but they never get that good, injuries have robbed him and sent him back to 135, Kerlon is the injury story Also wonder what Vardy PA was at fleetwood, not 150! But your right clearly he always had potential and just didnt see it due to environment/oppoortunity
  15. Also a newcastle fan, but to be honest I can't really disagree with any of it. Our team is a very good championship team, but really we were lucky last year, ranked last in almost all attacking metrics, theres not really a player whos attributes i'd take issue with. Saint-Maximin will be a top end premiership player, the longstaffs are championship all over. Lets face it, outside of Maxi, Almiron, Wilson and Fraser, I dont think any of our players would get a look in elsehwere - probably backed up by the fact we have 28 people for our squad because we can't shift Saivet.
  16. Yeah so following @Experienced Defender I have changed to force outside, removed prevent short as you said and lowered pressing intensity. Maybe Arma should play as a pressing forward instead of advanced? Would it be better to play a target man on attack?
  17. Defensively it hasn't been an issue, last season I used this to beat Man U 1-0 Leeds 2-0 Burnley 3-1 All in the FA Cup, Armstrong dominated I just couldnt really get any input from my target man and continue to struggle to get them to perform, I guess I could lower line of engagement nd pressing intensity
  18. So I have always been a newcastle fan, and my memories growing up of Robsons newcastle were a conventional 4-4-2 that always provided a tonne of crosses and goals for Shearer. I want to re-create this in FM21 (I'll attempt it with Newcastle, but for the time being lets use my second season blackburn save) Now essentially the approach play was based off the Shearer/Bellamy partnership, if teams sat high Newcastle looked to play flick ons from Shearer for Bellamy to get in behind: https://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/bellamy-shearer-robson-rooney-n
  19. Some more feedbacjk, the sheer speed of the game is amazing, whoever worked on the optimisation needs a pay rise. Half the time i hit save and its a blink ans youll miss it affair, i always lengthened autosave time because of the age it used to take to save. And, this is more throwback and a minor complain, it reminds me of older FM's. No matter what highlight setting, the last 10 mins of a game take like an hour to get through, I may as well switch to full game from the 80th minute for the sheer amount of "highlights" i get bombarded with in the last 10 mins.
  20. Man U are bafflingly overrated... Sat in 2nd end of first season. Generally its the best FM in years, the Match UI is a little frustrating, watch in 2D and pitch is a little small, loads of wasted space on the left
  21. Personally i just retrain players to what suits them or how i want them to fit in. Have converted many AMR/L to WBR/L and CM's to CB's
  22. Im roughly in the same year as Newcastle manager, Man U got relegated and didnt come back for 2 years. Reading even won the PL and champions league.
  23. Probably 02/03. Always baffles me as a Newcastle fan how Robson got that team to 3rd. Or 03/04 and see if we can kick on from there.
  24. Funnily enough I actually switched it the other day for that exact reason, figured it didnt make sense to have 2 people filling that space, i've instead moved him to the other side and change Clyne to defensive duty - now only romas forward when we have a lot of possession, changed to focus down left flank so most attacks go through Willems. Lots more chances now, just finishing is the issue. Think I will try 3 in the middle as that worked last year for me
