  1. I let the AM set up the training schedule and then I make any alterations I think are needed. I signed a lot of players initially so lots of team bonding was added. After the first few games my set pieces (both attacking and defending) weren’t great so extra work on them. Goals dry up and extra attacking training. I feel that’s how it would work in real life with a lot of teams to be honest. A significant number of managers are tacticians who appoint AMs who are excellent trainers. Then through their analysis of the games and tactics, make suggestions to the AM on things they’d like included.
  2. Not sure if this is database or match engine so I’ve posted in both. Orient’s kit in match is wrong. We’ve never played with that shirt and shorts combination.
  3. I’m currently managing Forest Green. Hibernian offered for George Williams and I got a good price for him so accepted the bid (the note said Williams would like to discuss terms). However the transfer fell through because Hibernian are now under a transfer embargo due to an impending takeover but Williams has come to me moaning that I’m not letting him leave. Is this a known issue?
  4. Kyprianou is listed on the club website as midfielder (you can see him just above Phillips in the picture I attached). I’ve also seen him play as a centre back but he’s definitely used a CM more. He also seems to score quite a few goals from midfield too. Likewise with Phillips being a forward. He has been used as a CM very infrequently but scoring 20+ goals predominantly as a striker or a second striker would suggest to me he’s a forward (as well as being listed as one). Whenever I’ve seen him play, he’s on the shoulder of the defenders. Ive been to see the youths play lots of times, plus most of the info can be gained from the match reports on the club website. I’ve only seen Kyprianou play CB once and this was only in a friendly when the first year scholars came on and he shifted into the back line. Every other time he’s played as a box to box midfielder next to Haxhiu who is honestly a bit like Lee Cattermole.
  5. Fair point about the missed chances I guess. He misses a few and I he’s still quite young. I just expected it to be a bit higher considering how prolific he was last year. Thanks for the input
  6. Hopefully attached is a screenshot from the club website saying Phillips is a forward. He’s already got 7 goals this season and was somewhere between 15 and 20 last season (I forget the actual number but I’ve asked someone at the club to confirm this). Therefore I think a finishing attribute of 2 for the youth team’s top scorer is a little harsh. I’d say around the 9 mark would be fair and his composure 8 or 9. With regards to Bonne’s finishing, he was the second highest scorer in the league last year so I’d say 12 is more realistic and he’s scored plenty of 1 on 1s so his composure potentially should be more than 8. Genuine question which I don’t mean to sound rude or abrasive but I’m sure that’s how it will read on here... are we sure the researcher is researching the youth teams if they haven’t got information that is on the club website correct?
  7. Any response to these suggestions? I’d be interested to know the reasoning behind some of the attributes and also who researched the U18s.
  8. Am I to expect a response to my feedback? I reported some Orient data issues on Friday/Saturday and it hasn’t been acknowledged, but lots of other people who have reported data issues on other clubs got responses within a matter of hours. Do we even have a data researcher? Some of the attributes and positions for the players would suggest we don’t.
  9. I’d also say Macauley Bonne’s finishing is a little low. Probably should be around the 12-13 mark. Composure is about right and I think that’s why he misses chances rather than his inability to finish.
  10. A couple of other things regarding the youth players... Hector Kyprianou is a central midfielder (box to box type), rather than a centre back. Granted, he has played at centre back on occasion but almost every time I’ve seen the youths play, he’s in the centre of midfield. Jaedon Phillips is an attacking midfielder/striker and a good finisher, yet is down as a central midfielder with finishing of 2. Should be somewhere between 9 and 11. Does anyone actually watch the youths play? Because the accuracy of ratings and positions on a lot of them is well off the mark.
  11. Lawrence Hammond was born in Huntingdon (I taught him but have no proof other than that so not sure that counts!) Also, the pace of Josh Koroma is surely more than 10?! If Josh Coulson is 8 then Koroma has to be around 12 or 13 at the very least.
  12. There's a requests section but oh well. 2) There's an option to hide/mask player attributes before you start a save. 6 & 8) Never going to happen. Most people don't want to see 3D images having dinner or board meetings. It would take too much away from the actual match engine.
  13. If you're playing three playmakers then they're all going to want the ball and also the rest of the team will be looking to pass to those players. Obviously if it works then great but I've always found that playing too many playmakers isn't that productive. Who's getting into the box to score your goals from midfield? None of those three really will be. My favourite role is the Box to Box midfielder. That works with most roles.
  14. Dear SI, If this doesn't end up in the game EXACTLY like this on either FM19 or FM20 then why on earth does the requests section even exist? Sincerely, Every FM player
  15. I don't think it's a problem at all. Firstly, as RBKalle just said, I doubt managing small teams in tough divisions is fun. Nigel Clough looks like he's aged about 20 years over the last couple of seasons. Also, for what it's worth, on my Orient save where I'm in 2025/26, Burton are now in League 2. On the flip side, FC United of Manchester and Hereford have both managed 3 promotions each across that time which is definitely overachieving. Also, using a simple 4-4-2 formation, I achieved consecutive promotions from the National League to the PL and am now into my fifth season in the top flight. Basically, it is possible to overachieve but it doesn't happen often. Which is perfectly realistic.
