  1. Decided to play the final game of my last season in France...
  2. Thanks for the shout out. You can find the post here: https://theresonlyoneball.com/2020/05/23/my-approach-to-preseason-training-in-football-manager-2020-part-i/ There are two parts, this is part one.
  3. Isn't that true of real life. These players destroy most teams. However, rather than thinking about how to stop them, try thinking about how to stop the ball getting to them. If they do not have the ball, they cannot do anything with it.
  4. Are there any guidelines for choosing a club to as an affiliate to send players on loan, like their reputation must be lower or the league they play in must have a lower rep etc.? I've tried to get an affiliate in Spain because of the 2 year to passport rule on foreign players but my board cannot agree a deal with any of the club there. For reference my reputation is 4.5 stars and I've tried with 3 star clubs. LaLiga, however, has a higher reputation than the French Ligue 1 so I think this might be it?
  5. Interesting. So you can make a Complete Wing-Back dribble less (even though they're hardcoded to dribble more) just by using the dribble less team instruction.
  6. Sorry to derail, but which takes precedence, the team or player instruction? Obviously, some roles cannot have 'take more risks' selected, and some roles can have 'take fewer risks' selected. If the team instruction is to pass into space but a player instruction is to take fewer risks, what happens? And I assume with both take more risks and pass into space selected this doesn't double up and make me play every pass into space.
  7. Have you considered asking your players to pass into space as this encourages players to play balls into open spaces for your players to run onto, rather than passing to feet.
  8. In addition to the above, which I really hope to get an answer to, can someone confirm if Coaching Style is essentially their coaching attributes? The following is from a post @Seb Wassell wrote: "The “type” of players selected refers to a player’s position and style, for instance a HoYD with a preferred 4-5-1 formation and a Technical Coaching Style may produce more technically styled midfielders than another Head of Youth Development." I am assuming Coaching Style is different to Tactical Style, e.g., Park the Bus. I cannot see anywhere on a Head of Youth Development profile that states
  9. Yeah all slight variations of the 4-1-4-1 system. I'm back to an Advanced Forward now, but sometimes will swap if he gets isolated as he's more involved as a Treq.
  10. No way, they're awesome in the right system I used Andreas Pereira at AMR in my Rennes save and he was amazing. Also used one as a striker who was equally amazing.
  11. I would have thought it might have been mentioned by now if it was important. Obviously, the better the coach then generally the better their reputation, but reputation being important itself I don't believe is true.
