Apart from what I consider to be some glaring issues with the ME which have already been well documented, I find myself again perplexed as to why the vast majority of midfielders have their ideal role as a playmaker of some sort. This isn't the case in real life at all. There's a massive scarcity of simple 'central midfielders' or ball winning types in FM. This was also the case last year, and it sort of forces you to play 2 playmakers at times. Take my favourite team Arsenal - Torreira and Willock are both considered to have their ideal role as playmakers. This simply isn't true. Willock is a box to box midfielder in real life and Torreira is more of a ball winning midfielder or anchor man. I feel the scarcity of other roles makes formation choices very limited.
I also feel Mason Greenwood is severely overrated as compared to the more impressive (this year) Gabriel Martinelli, among many other data issues.
