  1. Yes this would be logical but SI would need to confirm that such playing time was discounted from their Appearances adjustment for Team of the Year. I nearly almost make my substitutions between 60-65 minutes and my players always seem to get an average rating so the calculations above re my players should be "ok" regarding this. In my opinion they should definitely make an appearance reduction for players that start the game but are substituted - the 32 "Appearances" for Milik and 29 for Aguero appear to be vastly overstated. Hopefully SI will look into this and get back to my post.
  2. I think that you are onto something here at that my heavy rotation is probably driving what did seem a strange Man City bias to the Team of the Year. The full screenshot of Team of the Year shows selective stats for each player chosen - Positions, Appearances, Goals and Average Rating. It would seem logical that these were shown as they played a part, probably significant, in determining which players were selected: I looked a little deeper into the Premier League stats for each of the players selected and noted that for several players the appearances shown in Team of the Year screenshot above DID NOT agree with the underlying information. Danilo had 25(3), 25 starting appearances and 3 as substitute, but in the Team of the Year these have been re-stated to 26 appearances. Similarly, all other players who made more than 1 substitute appearance have re-stated appearance numbers shown in the Team of the Year screenshot: Lenglet 25(3) becomes 26 Grimaldo 28(1) remains 28 Sane 28(2) becomes 30 Milik 23(12) becomes 32 Aguero 24(7) becomes 29 This would seem to indicate that for Team of the Year appearance purposes starts count as 1 appearance (even if you were substituted during the game) and appearances as substitute are re-stated into equivalent starting appearances and added to the starts. It would also seem that to qualify for Team of the Year you need a certain number of appearances (including re-statement for as substitute). My guess is that you need 25 or more to be considered for Team of the Year on this basis. de Light for Chelsea had 24(0) which should equal 24 for Team of the Year and did make Team of Year despite 7.68 Ave Rating. Lenglet with 25(3) becoming 26 but only 7.24 Ave Rating took one of the D(C) positions. Would be good if Glenn Wakeford of SI could advise on this. One apparent anomaly of this is that whilst it makes an allowance for appearances as substitute, there would seem to be no adjustment when a player starts a match and is then substituted - a start always seems to count as 1. In my opinion this needs looking into and correcting. Using in game player statistics such as Pass Attempts and Passes per 90 minutes, Goals and Goals per 90 minutes allows you to "calculate" how many equivalent FULL 90 minute games a player has played: The above table shows that Milik 23(12) beoming 32 is a gross overstatement as he only played the equivalent of 24/25 full games! Similarly Aguero 24(7) becoming 29 when he only really played the equivalent of circa 24 full games. I know that my heavy rotation, due to continual gegenpress, also means that players like Vagnoman, Emerson, Barkley often start games but are substituted. Non of the Chelsea players who were in top 6 for average rating but not in the team of the year seemed to play enough games to be considered - de Light would be the closest. Would appreciate SI feedback re whether my deductions above are correct as they would seem to answer my initial surprise at the omission of so many Chelsea players who had high average ratings. There does however seem to be a flaw in the logic applied to Appearances shown in Team of the Year screenshot - see my comments re Milik and Aguero who must have been substituted a lot despite starting 24 games. Methinks the Appearances logic for Team of the Year needs to be looked into with starts not counting as 1 but being reduced if a player is substituted. If you get allowance for part match appearance coming on as a substitute then there should be a reduction when a player who starts is substituted. Consistency should be applied. Looking forward to SI feedback
  3. Understand that save game at right time helps identify cause of issues etc but surely for something like Team of Year awards could be looked into at "top level" even without save game. there must be some coding behind the "selection" that probably looks at several factors such as average rating, goals, assists, player of match awards, reputation (possibly) etc. I looked to see whether some of the Man City selections over my players could be driven by it being solely on reputation but that does not seem the case. Maybe coders could look at the formula that delivers team of year and maybe consider reviewing the weightings etc.
  4. Please can you look at club fixtures during international break. I had to play a premier league game when 17 players were on international duty - no option to re-schedule fixture and am now in the 21/22 season and just about to play Super Cup game with 24 players on international duty - ridiculous! Even some of my U23 squad will be unavailable due to international call up Really enjoying FM19 but important matches being scheduled during international breaks with most of your large 1st team squad being unavailable really does need looking at and fixing asap. I have uploaded save game just before super Cup called SuperCupSept21
  5. Great to here that it is fixed but ONLY if you start a new game. I focus on one long career save each year and have invested over 450 hours game time on my current save with 24 players on international duty for Super Cup game and no option to postpone! Starting a new game and binning time invested so far is not really a suitable option for players like me. I have also experienced 17 players being unavailable and on international duty for a premier league game. Please can you explore ways of making more fixes compatible with existing saved games - such issues are very frustrating. I have posted my issues on League specific thread, England, and uploaded relevant save games files to icloud. Maybe future releases of game could feature option to re-schedule match if it clashes with international window etc to cater for bugs that slip through intitial game testing?

  7. Unfortunately I do not have save game from just before season ends. Regarding how I play the game the answer is very slowly as I watch each game on comprehensive, making shouts, in game tweaks as I deem appropriate. For the 20/21 season I decided to develop a new tactic using inverted wing backs after reading a thread by Rashidi - I have played FM since the very early Championship Manager/Domark days and have never really understood or tried inverted wing backs. Using the gegenpress template and making some changes, with 433 and inverted wing backs seems to have produced a tactic that retains possession well, creates plenty of chances, score lots of goals and leads to lots of clean sheets. I have a deep squad of good players (but not best in league) and have to rotate frequently as gegenpress for whole match takes its toll over busy season. I prefer players with good professionalism and try to purchase/develop players with appropriate personalities. I also spend ages at start of my annual career save getting a very good backroom team in place - best coaching, recruiting and medical team in premier league. When choosing staff I also focus on "good" personalities that have high professionalism. Dynamics also probably help team performance etc with Team cohesion Very Good/Excellent and Dressing room atmosphere/managerial support both being Excellent. All above contribute in some part to the good results being achieved consistently by this team/squad. Re "what were you doing to get such an anomalous result" the simple answer is just playing the game as I usually do but with a tactic that seems to give opponents very few chances - if they don't have the ball they cant score. As you have a saved game you can view the tactic I used. My question is how do the team of the year awards give such an anomalous result? In real world there are usually at least 4 players from league winners in the premier league team of the year.
  8. Thanks - duly posted to All Other Gameplay, as advised, 5 days ago but no response from awards team.
  9. I have just completed 20/21 and finished top in Premier League - unbeaten, 100 Points scoring 89 and conceding just 2.  Man City Second with 83 points.  Looking at detailed player stats: Average Rating - Chelsea players filled 5 of the top 6 spots with 1 Man City player featuring at 5th. Non of Chelea players in Team of Year, Man City Player is Player of Match - Chelsea player 1st and 2 others in top ten - non in team of year  However, Premier League team of the year includes 1 Chelsea player and 8 from Man City!  How on earth does that work? Goalkeeper - Kepa - no real argument here as only 2 goals conceded all season and team had 36 clean sheets DL -Grimaldo Man City...really - 28 Appearances, 2 goals, 4 assists, 1 PoM and average rating 7.35. Surely Emerson 20 App, 4 goals, 2 ass, 8 PoM and 7.68 ave rating more logical! DC Skriniar and Lengelet of Man City......what about de Ligt.... DR Danilo Man City 25 App, 0 Gls, 4 Ass, 2 PoM, 7.23 ave..surely Vagnoman 22 Apps, 4 Gls, 7 Ass, 2 PoM and top ave rating in PL of 7.68 more logical...... Non of the 5 Chelsea players with best ave ratings in Premier League feature at all... Seems unbemievably biase. Do Man City select the team of the year?? Surely a bug, somewhere.... Save game PLTeamofYear uploaded Dan Ormsby suggested posing on this forum for Awards testers to look into.
  10. Usually when you go to a particular forum there is a start new topic button at the top. On the main bugs forum page listing all the sub forums there is no start new topic. If you click on database issues there is, click on technical and crashes there is not .... and on league specific there is no start new topic option button. Using start new topic at top of main page showing all forums, the drop down menu for League specific if greyed out and not selectable.

  13. Want to start potential bug topic in Leahue Specific sub forum but unable to select it from drop down menu? What is going on?
  14. My Premier League run in, includes Champions League, is 6 games in 12 days.........Have submitted save game to SI Cloud (FACupScheduling) as part of another issue regarding a Premier League game being scheuled during international break with 17 of my 1st team squad being unavailable as on international duty.
  15. Unfortunately I do not have save immediately before or after. Best options I have uploaded to SI cloud Service are: 1) 1stMainEnd2ndSeason.fm - this is latest save game circa 1 month further on in game than the relevant Everton match per screenshot taken at the time. 2) FACupScheduling.fm - this is a file save circa 1 month before the Everton match was re-scheduled. It may be that progressing this save will lead to similar re-schedule problem. In current save my run in is also very, very challenging - 6 matches in 12 days! Is this realistic/correct or another issue that needs looking into:
