  1. Just happened to me in the English FA cup. Injured player have a sub to use as start of extra time but can't use it.
  2. I made the Euro Cup final (26th May) but the squad break up from training before this. Training resumes the week of the game but there's a full week where I can't train my players. Can this be fixed please?
  3. This must be a universal issue. Multiple players with 4 year contracts demanding new ones. Please fix this!
  4. Keep seeing goals allowed from shot rebounds where multiple players are clearly offside and the linesman is looking right across the line. This is way too common.
  5. From my understanding you can hire an assistant manager with personality traits that will mean he deals with press conferences in a way that reduces the amount of negative player responses. I think evasive or reserved work well. Try and avoid media friendly (somewhat intuitively) outspoken, volatile etc.
  6. The set piece thing is annoying that it calls the routine 'routine 1' but in my save at least it does use the instructions, just doesn't use the name of the routine.
  7. I think the director of football role needs its own stats and a complete revamp for this style of playing the game to be enjoyable. More interaction with the director of football would be good. Someone is interested in your star player? Having a meeting about this could be good. Stats around how hard a deal each director of football makes, how likely he is to listen to a players demands, you as the manager, weighing up selling vs what's available in the market to replace the star player, considering your own finances and the players length of contract . Things like this.
  8. I think it may be a visual issue, I played against a team that looked like they were playing 4 dms, including the wingers, but the positions were central.
  9. Is anyone else seeing midfielders looking deeper in tactics view. My own midfielders are looking the same but I just played Swansea and it looked like they were playing 4 dms when they weren't. Am I imagining this?
  10. Stick Kodjia inside forward left wing on attack. Focus down the right and look for overlap, get your right sided players to aim at the far post. Use whippedor floated crossed (I use whipped). Left backs tend to be very short, so if you can isolate Kodjia against them using this method he'll score goals. Also Abraham is great forward for this sort of wing play. I also used McGinn as a box-box but with play wider, run wide with ball, to use the space on the left vacated by Kodjia being narrow, but then I didn't use cwb on the left. I'ddrop Taylor to full back support, to counteract the attacking right sided defender and use McGinn to provide width on that side.
  11. I weigh up some key attributes for both the marker and opposition and only use if also man marking. Attributes: Marking and to a lesser extend positioning is roughly equal to oppositions off the ball; maker is quicker than marked player. Marker has at least 10 concentration. In terms of tackling hard. I weigh up my players tackling with the opponents dribbling capability so speed, dribbling, flair. Also bravery is a worth a look, but if I player is not brave but has amazing dribbling I still go easy. If you go in hard you're more likely to get skinned, easy is like jockeying as I understand it. I would also beware of using an intense pressing system vs fast players who are good off the ball, especially if tackling easy. TLDR: I tend to man mark playmakers like Shelvey or Mooy. Guys without insane physicals who the opposition play through. I go hard on slower players with poor bravery. This is just my opinion btw, I'm sure others will have more complex and valid points.
  12. Yes but he's also natural in various midfield positions, whereas Broughton isn't even awkward in another.
  13. Well why on earth would such a talented player be a centre back if his positioning was truly awful? I've no idea what he's like in real life other than to know he's an England youth international and the biggest clubs in England are interested in him.
  14. I've had some game breaking issues, where the game won't let me continue, 2 red cards in a game I'm after I'm 5-1 up in leading to a crash for example. I think you must have rose tinted glasses on previous betas to suggest this has been a full fiasco for anyone, or to think this will impact preorders. Preorders could go down though, given the record numbers and revamp this year.
  15. In contrast I feel the beta has been the best it's ever been despite the bugs I've experienced, and I love moaning.
