  1. Attributes for staff

    But it's not because I like offense that I don't want my players to developp their defensive stats. I'm not sure we're exactly talking about the same thing I would find it surpring that I'd need an assistant with a specific mentality to train all the players, even the keepers.
  2. Attributes for staff

    How so? I understand that having an assistant who likes the same system as you is good, but I don't see how my style of playing will change how good he is to coach the players in offense, defense, ball control,...
  3. Hi In Touch what are the important attributes for each staff member? Especially the ones who really differs from full FM. Like for example, in full FM you can have 6-7 coaches, so you get one with the right attributes for offense, one with the right attributes for defense,... But in Touch, you have one guy. So I assume he doesn't need to have all coaching attributes at a nice rating? I guess a team of coaches is "built" (not physically built though) depending on his level? If so, what is important to have a nice team of coaches? I guess for scouts, physio, it's the usual but maybe there are differences?
  4. FM18 Rate My Newgen Thread

    Got that kid in my academy during first season in 3rd portuguese division (he was 16): At first I noticed him but thought he still had to do quite some things before becoming the real deal, but he attracted a lot of offers from Porto, Sporting and Benfica, and now he is 17 and we just started the season but he is really performing. First game and a half of the season, 3 goals and an assist
  5. It's extremely rare that I face a team without a player like that. They often are amazing and score goals too. Ok they are recovering and not injured, but still, the should play as a last resort

    I'm not surprised, they were a good club They dropped due to a relegation and then financial issues. Second season is over, in the 2nd division. We were expected 10th and the objective was first half of the table. What's interesting is that the best teams in that division are Porto B, Sporting B and Benfica B, and none can get promoted. So there are big chances that if you're 5th you'll have promotion (although it's not automatic, if one of the reserves fails to achieve top 3). I got a few players who looked good on paper, like Vinicius (striker, great stats to be a deadly finisher), Gudiño (keeper from Porto, a beast for this division) or Sandro Costa (CB who stays on a very good season in div 2). Started well, we got that 6-7th place for quite some time. I wasn't sure how I would perform so I think I went in a bit defensive and prudent. We got 2 draws back-to-back at Porto and Lisboa against the 2 giants, which was very sweet! We got dominated like hell but got the results. We started having issues after those 2 games. We weren't able to win anything anymore. From start of november to the end of the season, we won 6 out of the 24 games we played. Yet we dropped in the rankings only late, and finished 10th, as expected. Still a bit disappointed. Gudiño got quickly injured for months, and Sandro Costa missed basically 6 months. Vinicius couldn't score at all and we got a ton of injuries (137 on the season). Now season 3, with ambitions: not saying I want promotion, but I changed my assistant and medical staff, got some nice players and I intend to play more my game instead of coming into games with the mentality of an inferior team.
  7. Season over: 137 injuries. 9 players have missed over 25% of the season, including 3 who missed over 40%. (yes, I know, it's not the game, it's my training, my tactic, my haircut, my height,...) (and yes, I know, injuries in the game are at 80% of real life. Please, please find me a club who had 171 in one season)
  8. Well congrats. I could never get Germain and/or Mitroglou to score anything for me.
  9. Yeah Monaco always gets him for 5M too. I offered him more money twice, like WAY more money, but he always end up in Monaco! Pretty classic tactic for Marseille. I was hoping you weren't playing with it because it just confirms how bad I am With a target man too? Man... how did Mitro do? (or the striker who played TM)
  10. I'm glad to read that because I bought a striker who has everything to crush opponents, yet he misses 4 1v1 per game and scored 4 goals in 5 months
  11. How were you playing during first season? 2 strikers? And wow, you got Dubois after 1 season from Nantes?! In my saves he always, always, always joins Monaco.
  12. If that's real news, then ok. Hven't seen it though, maybe I missed it. But if it happened in 17, doubt it is. If that's just the game... well let's try to not always defend the game for everything that happens. You guys always hae the most ridiculous excuses to everything that happen in this game. Soetimes, it's just broken and need to be fixed.
  13. Qualified or not, he's 29... he shouldn't retire
  14. Hi So I did my set pieces combination, and players refuse to apply them. I ask them to shoot the corners at the second post, and the very first corner was shot that way (resulted in a goal...) but since, I've seen like 15 corner and all of them have been shot someplace else. Very frustrating. PS: I'm in Touch, although it shouldn't matter
