  1. While this discussion about the stars that no one in the world really understands is very fun, WTF are we even talking about? There are no 5 star players there in the screenshot, in fact, no one has more than 3.5 stars :P That aside, it's not all that unusual, SPAL has some very decent strikers (Petagna is one of best supportish big guy/deep lying strikers in the game, Pellegri is basically 19 year old mini Lewandowski, and Paloschi is still very decent) which is almost the only thing that matters in these stupid multi striker/super heavy pressure tactics that have been drastically overperforming (basically to the level where it can be called exploit) for more than a decade now. At least it's not that even more stupid narrow 4-3-3 that is basically non-existant in reality :P
  2. Errr, IF(A) is nothing like a "false 10". False 10 or a central winger is a moniker given to players like Ozil or Sneijder (and more current Hazard or Coutinho) who would have been played like "classic 10" in ye olde days but nowadays they are often pushed to the wing and expected to perform the defensive duties of a winger, but then float more centrally (freeing the flank for the attacking full back) into traditional no 10 hole when the team has possession. IF(A) on the other hand is a typical wide forward looking to make diagonal runs behind the defence so more like Salah or Sterling. They will generally do no playmaking and will certainly not tend to play in the hole. So in FM terms, false 10 would be more of a advanced playmaker (probably in support role) in wide position with instructions to sit narrower and cut inside. Plus generally, when using any kind of no 10, classical or false, you probably want to use some kind of attacking forward ahead of them, who would push the defence away from the hole. Using false 9 and false 10 together is bad idea as they tend to operate in the same area, therefore getting in each other's way and attracting more defenders there, creating a quagmire in a place where you want more space for your most creative player to operate. Luckily IF(A) is not a false 10, but instead exactly what you want to have with a false 9, someone who will look to exploit the space left open when false 9 drops deep.
  3. Sure I can (and have now), but, what's the point? It's just a meaningless single point of data that could be completely random. Or down to who knows what reason. I wouldn't even consider it a bug and therefore worthy of checking up the save game. Just like that stupid post above mine that I replied to. Honestly I don't really see the point because this is a thing that should be easy to catch in a soak test if it is true. Of course a million players will create all kind of weird random results, cherry picking a couple of them doesn't really have any meaning one way or the other. And some bias is always going to be there. Everybody is biased, that is just non avoidable. People are messy, subjective and very good at lying, both to others and to themselves. That is number one lesson you learn in any science, to not believe anyone, including yourself. Only believe in cold, hard data :P
  4. On the other hand, in my Toulouse save, 4 and half seasons in, 8/8 champions league finalist were english and Endgland just won the 2022 World Cup, so, where are those other mythical clubs or mythical other nations, they obviously don't exist, it's just clear confirmation bias from people who can't look past their english bias.
  5. That is probably due to difference between quick sim which decides things in leagues that you are not playing in (unless you put them to full detail) and which produces much more conservative results, and a full sim that uses this match engine where strikers easily overperform quite significantly.
  6. The color is 99% irrelevant, role suitability is just a very broad and super generic guide about what role suits the player theoretically, in isolation and with absolutely no relevance put on wider tactics. By your logic you could put 11 goalkeepers on the goal, they would all be full green so that should be perfect tactics. You are so utterly, completely and incredibly wrong in your approach. Your tactics looks like a random jumble of incompatible roles. Carrileros are generally used in systems that dont have any "naturally" wide players, so it is kinda not suitable for tactics that has a winger and a full back on that side. No defensive roles in midfield mean that you have no cover for defence and are therefore easily caught on the break, and you have no midfielder that stays a bit back, therefore providing a passing outlet to stretch out teams that park the bus. And who knows what else problems are there that can't be spotted because it is not in english. Ignore role suitability, it has absolutely no influence on performance of players. Give your players roles that work together to create a meaningfull and cohesive apporach on the field.
  7. It's not south american, it's FIFA rule. It applies to all countries in the world, it's just that, due to worker migration laws, EU is "considered" a single country for these purposes, so inside EU those restrictions don't apply. Also, there are of course ways to circumvent the rule - usual loophole is that if the whole family moves to a new country then of course young players are allowed to sign for clubs in new country, so employing the parents (big clubs can never have enough janitors ) and moving the family is sometimes used to get players to come when young.
