  1. Would love to see a simplified version of the match engine available in the training section possibly called "training pitch" or something similar where we could look at how certain tactical tweaks affected patterns of play and movement without having to play a full match. Would also love if this was extended to be able to practice set pieces over and over without having to wait for match days. A large portion of a manager's time irl is spent on the training pitch so feel this would make sense.
  2. My favourite type of save on FM has always been journeyman saves, I would love the ability to use your managers money to take language courses similar to when players do it making it easier for me to be considered for foreign Jobs.
  3. For me it's not necessarily about crossing to a player, I want then to put the ball into dangerous areas and let the skill/movement of my striker determine if there's a chance or not. But yeh the pic probably isn't the greatest example
  4. Ah didn't realise that, hopefully they have a solution, i dont expect every cross to be a perfect low ball into a oncoming striker or anything i just want to see them attempting it at least
  5. Still happening in the beta patch, the players on the posts are useless
  6. Im seeing lots of issues with crossing Far too many crosses are blocked imo, i have many examples of my player beating his man running to the byline only to slow down and let the defender block the attempted cross. When a player does cross, its never in line with my tactical instructions. I always have mine set to "low" but inevitably my players will always float one aimlessly to the back post Although there has been improvement im still seeing players dribble to the byline and shoot instead of pulling it back to the pen spot/edge of area for arriving midfielders I have many examples of this if needed, just attached one match PKM for reference 04:30 Cross whipped to penalty spot 08:00 attacker pauses allowing defender to get back 09:59 Attacker should cross instead cuts back to another player who has cross blocked 13:03 Full back should square it but dwells and lets defender make last ditch challenge 16:27 Lofted cross into box 19:25 player beats man, gets to byline, chips to far post 21.22 player gets to byline, chipped cross again 38.28 3 blocked crosses in a row 52:32 player drives to byline, hangs cross to far post 62:13 full back gets to byline, cross to far post 72:15 full back to byline again, far post cross again 87:27 winger to byline, far post cross Leeds Utd v Bournemouth.pkm
  7. Starting to think this is an issue with defenders on the posts from corners in general. Here at 15:26 a cross is put to the far post, the attacker volleys and my defender on the post isnt even looking the the right direction PKM attached West Brom v Leeds Utd.pkm
  8. Whilst defending a corner i conceded an equaliser where the ball was headed towards my player on the far post, instead on heading it clear the ball went through his head and into the goal. PKM Attached, goal was in 91:24 Southampton v Leeds Utd.pkm
  9. Ive been playing with a very direct formation that creates a large amount 1v1's via balls over the top (only consistent way to score this fm) and im still getting very questionable finishing from my strikers not to mention strikers shooting when they should square the ball. 14.25 rashford through on goal, shoots straight at keeper 17.25 Lingard shoots when teammate unmarked in the middle (despite shoot less instruction on) 23.25 Martial through on goal, keeper miles of line, shoots wide 36.24 Rashford through on goal, admittedly it is a tight angle 38.06 My only goal...and yes its a penalty 45.35 Rashford in again 49.54 Kluivert shoots instead of squaring 61.46 Martial shoots straight at the keeper (has places shots ppm, never uses it) 66.22 Kluivert beats man, shoots instead of crossing 78.01 Greenwood shoots wide 1v1 87.03 Greenwood straight at the keeper (also has places shots ppm) Started to think alot of this stems from limited finishing/shooting animations, i never see strikers open their bodies up and shape a shot, or chip a keeper, or go around a keeper, its literally hit and hope every time. Man Utd v Everton.pkm
  10. Had 49 shots in one of my latest games, scored zero goals, whilst there were mulitple 1v1's squandered by my attacking players i think headers may also need looking at MK Dons v Leeds Utd.pkm
  11. @Svenc both the top 2 post are from myself, must of been signed in to an old account on my phone. Ooops. The stats I mention are from the 3 screen shots in the OP if you add them all together. Sorry for the confusion
  12. I included pkm's with my original post, others have added their own, did I not do it correctly?
  13. Thought id make my own thread instead of piggybacking others. Far too many times in the latest patch i have been dominating games, dozens of shots, multiple clear cut and half chances, hitting the woodwork numerous times. Most of these chances come in the form of 1v1's but also missing headers from underneath the cross bar. Whilst i understand not every chance can or will go in the balancing still feels very off to me especially when the opposition can score so easily from minimal chances I have attached 2 PKM's of matches where this has been most prevalent, i have many more if needed Leeds v Newcastle 1-1 Leeds v Palace 1-0 Leeds v Wolfsberger 0-0 Leeds Utd v Crystal Palace.pkm Leeds Utd v Wolfsberger AC.pkm
  14. this is happening to me almost every game, large amounts of clear cut and half chances but no goals. Palace game i won 1-0, other game was a 0-0 draw
  15. Agree with everything you've written, latest patch is just as infuriating as the last
