  1. Most teams will have enough first teamers, but this option also fills youth squads with newgens.
  2. @pheelf This is the player concerned. At the moment he has been playing as a Left Fullback on Support behind a wide playmaker in the midfield strata who cuts inside. He has previously played as a fullback on attack and a wing back on support. The results seem consistent across all three roles. I have recently dropped him due to performance, his last game - a 0-0 draw - he attained a 5.9 rating. He is still my worst trainer.
  3. @pheelf thanks for this - think there is certainly some merit in what you've said, but I'm not sure I agree with all of it. By that I mean you might be right about how it is, but I am not sure you should be, if that makes sense? I am certainly not expecting him to score or assist with any regularity, however he does have a couple of assists due to long throws. In those games he gets decent ratings, but the assists add to that rating and mask what in reality are further below par overall performances. In the games with no assists, there is no hiding the low ratings. Also, I get what you're saying about 6.4 not being that low, but everything is relative. This guy got a 6.4 rating whilst most others on the team were getting high sevens or low eights in that game, for example. Of course, I can forgive a few bad performances - he is young and not particularly technically gifted. However, to me, someone who is "complacent" is either being overly relaxed with their approach physically through lack of effort, or mentally due to lack of concentration. The "in the moment" options during a match - short of subbing him - I felt was to request him to concentrate. I tried this during 3 or 4 matches and at no point does that complacent flag change. Naturally, this leads me to assume he is lacking physical effort, or the will to try hard. So, via touchline shouts, I "demand more". This "frustrates" him. And then, 20 minutes later, we're back to "complacent" body language coupled with his usual sub par performance. So when this cycle is repeating again, I tell him that a 6.4 is disappointing, which stresses him out. Not only that, but he is consistently amongst the bottom 5 players at the club in terms of training performance. I think this is very clearly a poor personality, but I feel like I should be able to do more about this than I can. And, if i remind someone to keep their wits about them during a game and they ignore me, and then I demand that they try harder and they get annoyed with me, I find it weird that they then come over all anxious when I directly tell them to sort themselves out. How come I they're annoyed at me during touchline shouts but anxious after essentially the same conversation in the dressing room? I am on the lookout for a mentor for this guy, but in my latest game he's been sent off for two stupid yellows. Starting to feel his days are numbered....
  4. Thanks for this - I have changed his role slightly so that I'm asking him to do less, and am now on the lookout for a suitable mentor - hopefully this will improve him!
  5. Hi all, just after a bit of advice I have a player who is young (21) left back who is first team level and currently my first choice. He is performing ok, but the players around him are all performing to a much higher standard. We are currently third when we are simply aiming for a top half finish. Although early in the season (10 league games in), one of the early patterns I have noticed is that whenever we go in front, this player becomes "complacent" in his body language. I am then finding it impossible to do anything to take this complacency away. If I ask him to "concentrate" via touchline shouts, I see no change. If I "Demand More", he becomes "overwhelmed". In the last game we played, I told him I was unhappy with his performance in the half time team talk (2-1 up, 6.4 rating - next lowest on the team 6.8, no mistakes leading to goals) in the hope that he would buck his ideas up. Instead he "looked stressed" and then continued to under-perform for the rest of the game. This player also regularly trains poorly, and I think under normal circumstances I would consider dropping him. However, I do not really have able cover, and he also has a 17 for long throws. As I am playing in the Conference North, this is very useful, and indeed, the only games where he has received a decent rating are the ones where he has provided an assist or otherwise caused problems with his throws. Any advice on how I can get better performances out of him? It is clear that he is decent for his level but his poor mentality is letting him down.
  6. Well some of the cards mentioned as having issues have better specs than mine does which says it isn't just as simple as all Nvidia cards being an issue.
  7. Re. the NVidia issues - I am running "high" graphics on a GTX740. No issues what-so-ever.
  8. Played a bit more today, and have to say I'm getting a bit worried about the long shots too. I'm playing as Guiseley & still in pre-season - so I AM playing lots of very low level teams, however long shots are flying in. Currently 8-0 up against North Ferriby & 5 of the 8 goals I've scored have been screamers from outside of the area.
  9. Like the contextual recommendations from staff when in the analysis tab, but is there any chance we can get them working together
  10. No, I get it won't run - and this isn't a problem for me personally as my machine is 64 bit and the game runs fine. And I can imagine it not installing due to the file architecture, as you mentioned. But I wouldn't expect Steam to know that and gray out the install button - I'd expect errors during install. Maybe I'm wrong, just interested in how steam works in this scenario.
  11. Would it not even install on a 32 bit machine?
  12. Had a fair few hours to kill today - played few friendlies - looking really good and immersive so far. Can anyone answer me this though? How do I compare analysis from multiple matches at once? I'm certain I could do this on the game last year, and it was pretty intuitive. Spent ages looking for the option today and couldn't see it. Can anyone help?
  13. In England, promoted to the lowest playable level, new teams are; Farsley Celtic Kettering Town Kings Lynn Dorking Wanderers Tonbridge Angels and Weymouth In Italy, the new teams in Serie C are; Lecco Como Arzignano Pergolettese Pianese Cesena Avellino Picerno & Bari Hope this helps A good place to look for this sort of info is Wikipedia. If you search for the league by name, there will be a page for the current season which lists new teams that were relegated and promoted into the division.
  14. I think consistency and things like pressure/big games can massively impact things here. Take the example of a 2 players. The first is young, has a "long shots" (for arguements sake, but any visible attribute could be relevant to the point) value of 5. I would therefore logically (and I know this isn't an exact science) expect 5 out of 20 - or a quarter - of his long shots to be pretty decent providing my base tactic and the tactic of the opponent allowed for this. However, his big games & handling pressure stats are also high. I would then expect that quarter to rise on his debut, or in a big cup game, for example. The actual attribute would still say 5 though. And then if we factored in that he had, say, a 15 for consistency, I would expect even further that his long shots were decent more of the time. His attribute would still say 5 though. Alternatively, you have an older player with an attribute for long shots of 15. My logic tells me that 75% of the time I'm hoping to see decent long shots (tactics allowing). However, his big games, pressure and consistency attributes are all 1. Put simply, I would fully expect the first player to score with more long shots in this scenario, despite the second player having three times the value in the attribute. Maybe I am barking up completely the wrong tree with how it works, but I generally consider that comparing one attribute directly to another is nothing like deep enough to set my expectation. Someone who can do "maximum" long shots of 15 is all well and good, but if they are only doing a 15 long shot in 5% of games, and even less in big or high pressure games (if the attribute was 1/20) then you might as well not bother.
