I am not sure if Im offending anyone here, especially the mods.
Thats lower league which you are talking about.
I am very sure most of us who is having this problem is that we are managing a "superclub".
I did read your thread before, which is insightful, but you are managing West Ham. To me, thats not a big club in the start of the game unless you are very deep into your save.
I know your purpose of opening this thread, because of recent threads/posts complaining about the possession. I, myself face this issue. I did complain once or twice and I chose to adapt, to a little of success which can be improved.
So, may I humbly request the mods to show a "superclub" example of how can we overcome this issue.
