  1. I rarely used shouts in previous versions of FM but have found them to be extremely useful in FM19. You do need to avoid using them too often though to avoid causing "frustration"/ "overwhelmed" effect which can lead to conceding! I suggest waiting at least 20 minutes between shouts. I tend to use "demand more", "show some passion" or "encourage but only apply selectively - if player is already motivated then exclude applying shout to him.
  2. I have experienced the same with Hazard, by far my best penalty taker based upon attributes, scoring onlyy 1 from 5! There is a thread in match engine bug section on this and they need pkm files to analyse further. I have supplied my pkm file. It would be great if you could add your comments to that thread and upload pkm files to hopefully enable SI to investigate.
  3. 64 and counting...been a regular player of FM series since the Domark days!
  4. I have uploaded pkm from end of my first full season: 1stMainEndSeason1.fm Details extracted as follows: Hazard 19 Pen rating took 5 scored just 1 Luiz 15 Pen rating took 6 and scored 6 Morata 14 Pen rating took 2 and scored 2 Jorginho 13 Pen rating took 1 and scored 1 Willian 12 Pen rating took 2 and missed both - although in same match and both timed 90+1. I think he only actually took and missed 1!!! Belotti 11 Pen rating took 1 scored 1 Penalties were taken and missed in competitive matches on following dates: 28/9/18 Hazard missed 2 24/11/18 Hazard missed 4/12/18 Hazard missed 7/5/19 Willian apparently missed 2 penalties but both timed at 90+1.....methinks he only actually took and missed one that was recorded as 2... Penalties were taken, and scored, in competitive matches on following dates: 6/9/18 Luiz 2/9/18 Jorginho 28/9/18 Hazard amazingly scored a penalty... 8/12/18 Luiz 3/12/18 Belotti 16/12/18 Luiz 5/1/19 Morata 17/2/19 Luiz 18/4/19 Luiz 21/4/19 Luiz Hopefully above info and pkm will help you looking into this. It almost seems that the better the players penalty rating, the less chance he has of scoring.....
  5. I have commented on penalties several times on other threads. Re PKM's I have 1 main save and am about 3 competitve games into 2nd season. In first season Hazard, clearly my best penalty taker per attributes (and in real life), scored 1 from 5. Fed up i then handed over to Luiz who has yet to miss despite inferior attributes. Would my current PKM game save still be of use or were missed penalties too far ago? I did upload PKM for another issue a while ago but cannot remember how many penalties Hazard had missed at that stage.
  6. I rarely used shouts in previous versions of FM but have found them to be extremely useful in FM19.

I tend to use "demand more", "show some passion" or "encourage but only apply selectively - if player is already motivated then exclude applying shout to him. Can be useful towards end of match as player condition worsens......
  7. Another possiblility is that they are set as corner takers on their opposite flank and it takes a while for them to return to their set position...
  8. Link to passing thread (23 replies, > 600 views but no SI response in over 2 weeks) https://community.sigames.com/topic/454160-passing-statistics-very-low/
  9. If it is like passing stats ( see separate thread that has received zero SI response) then average comparable but too little difference between best and worst teams/ individual players..... cannot ever recall Messi or Ronaldo in fm ever replicating volume of goals scored in real life.
  10. I made sure to hire a good Ass Man, plus best coaches that I could to maximise star quality for each category so far as was possible, and have delegated training to him, apart from individual which I set. I occasionally tweak what he proposes..... training average regularly over 8 with lots getting 9-10... v pleased so far with player development.... Planning to gradually make more changes as my career save develops.
  11. Playing Chelsea and Hazard, based upon attributes, is definitely the best penalty taker..... 5 taken..... scored 1. Now have the attribute inferior David Luiz taking them and yet to miss. Maybe the better players are nerfed. Yet to see an opponent miss one.
  12. thanks for swift response. I thought that might be the case, but wouldn't using Be more Expressive actually increase liklihood of a player attempting a through ball and Be more disciplined reduce attempted through balls?
  13. Just seeking some clarification on the Creative Freedom tactical choice options of Be More Expressive/Be more Disciplined versus the individual player instructions of Take more risks/Take fewer risks. If you chose Be More Disciplined to reduce the creative freedom of your team would the effect be similar to setting individual players to Take fewer risks? Similar would setting individual player instructions to Take more risks have a similar effect to choosing Be more expressive as part of the team tactic?
  14. I raised an issue over two weeks ago, over 600 views and lots of comments from people concurring/adding information but absolutely zero from SI.....
