  1. That's fair enough. I just worry about spending a lot of time playing through a speculative version of what is going to happen. I'd rather they delayed a new release for a year until everything is more stable.
  2. Good point, but just how much alteration of the game would that entail?
  3. I don't see what enjoyment is to be derived from releasing a version of the game which reflects lengthy hiatuses in the game, empty stadiums, social distancing etc.. At worst, given the uncertainty of when restrictions will cease or how the pandemic will play out, it would be incredibly tasteless. There's a difference between the changes in schedule for the staging of the Qatar World Cup, or the regulations round player registration surrounding Brexit, and this. I want to play a football games escapism, not to navigate speculation about a world health crisis.
  4. I usually notice a mid-season dip, even with a team who are used to hoovering up the prizes. can't say I've had too many drubbings. I usually react by dropping under performers, and I've changed training to take account of eg conceding too many from corners. I find that defensive measures seem to have much more effect than attacking changes - but I suspect that's because there seems to be a fairly universal epidemic of strikers missing 80% of even the simplest chances.
  5. There are certain players who regardless of their squad status and the amount of playing time never seem to cheer up. I had Harry Kane, who was permanently "concerned" even when he was playing every game. Until you left him out for one game, and then he was "alienated." I have three midfielders - two squad players, one regular starter, all have been concerned for two seasons, again regardless of playing time. The squad status thing is a great idea, but it seems to me to need a little refinement.
  6. Good point. Confirmation bias often makes one think that your intervention is what is making the difference, especially when it seems to have a negative effect. I think you're right in that you have to look past of being something being broken or bugged.
  7. I've had David DeGea win POM once. And deservedly. But generally, yes, the ratings are depressed. More notably though, a keeper who performs heroics in a penalty shootout never gets a cherry on top. If missing a penalty can depress ratings unrealistically, then saving one in the 90 mins or in a shootout deserves a big uptick.
  8. I have to say, I haven't found this. Before the ME update, most crosses weren't clearing the first man for me, and when they did the headers ballooned. That seems to have been fixed in the update, but I'm still not seeing a disproportionate amount of goals from headers.
  9. Aha! Brilliant! Thank you.
  10. I get messages saying that the loan manager has accepted a loan offer because the player is on the loan list. I can't fid the loan list. Am I missing something, or do I just have to go through over player in the underage squads to check they're not about to be loaned out?
  11. Does it actually impact on how the game goes for you? If you fulfil the more tangible targets, would you still get fired for not having the best youth system? I doubt it, but I could be wrong. It might be one of those things -like the tactical advice you get from coaches - which is largely irrelevant.
  12. Don’t get hung up on those lists of wonder kids, or players you “must sign”. Buy players with good teamwork and work rate. Especially with clubs who are not elite teams.
  13. I've just got to 2021, and suddenly at the end of the season there it is. It could do with a bit more signposting - despite only being a few weeks after the end of season, players' recovery times seem very slow. There's a completely new format with much better teams which is good, but one day between group and quarterfinal. And suddenly, your board thinks it desirable, when in the past it has been unimportant. Is this a reflection of a change in real life? Given how much clutter there is in the inbox, and how poor much of what lands there is, it would help to be given more information.
  14. It has, and it's a shame - personally, I'd love it to be a more active part of the game: hunting down the right assistant manager and coaches, so that it has some bearing on the game. But I guess it would need such a sea-change in the game that it would be unfeasible.
