  1. If you got monthly report so to select candidates for it then the youth intake it would make it feel less random, and wouldn’t bloat the database
  2. another way of solving some of the issue, would be to actually increase the average stats of youth players. Not so there’s an unrealistic amount of quality players coming through each year.. but that physical, mental and technical stats for the most part represent a baseline level that would realistically represent a 15 year old who has convinced his parents, his coach, and my HOYD that he might be....a Footballer. instead of filling the intakes with players with ridiculous poor stats, perhaps increase the average stats, but then make the ability to judge the potential of im
  3. This is it’s shallowest area. and I am listening to you. To answer your question, by the build up to an intake happening monthly over the course of a year, being informed that my HOYD and Under18s Manager are attending youth events, and to then receive a prospect list, it would enable me, the player who paid £22.99 for the game, and who is employing said HOYD at £9k a week, to actually hand pick players for the youth intake. It would enable to not accept the dross technique 2 composure 1 that the HOYD rounds up, on his £450,000 salary. This would remove the nonsense “prefe
  4. If you were sent batches of reports monthly of players that you could pick and choose to reject from under 15 academy and from national/international scouting that were then on a roster that formed your official intake day... that would be way more rewarding than the current overnight spawn scenario we have currently. I would enable me to ensure the HOYD isn’t bringing me a group of trash youngsters come March. It would enable me the player, more of a relationship with my HOYD and make that entire section of the game less hollow. you can be defensive about this section o
  5. I would rather they break up the lottery spawn method and allow the HOYD to interact with us monthly. so they can maintain the necessary influx of newgens to populate the game, but the sourcing of them is closer to FIFA career mode where talents are brought to your attention rather than rounded up in such a random manner. The games current annual interaction with the HOYD isn’t satisfying or realistic. A HOYD like Samaden in reality is not going to spend 1 entire year scouting young players, and then bring someone in from his choice of thousands of youth games, with technique
  6. I totally agree with this! But it’s illustrates how clunky the current youth system is. I understand that it must be very difficult to try and get an algorithm to fluidly represent something real. I would like to see them take the HOYD personality, formation preferences, stats and reallly separate them, so that coaching stats impact his under 19 training. And the knowledge stats have more of an impact on his actual induction of players. if he was to suggest new youngsters on a monthly basis, based on scouting invisible under 15/12 leagues and these would be added to a roster t
  7. I agree it’s a lottery, and I agree with a few things you have said in the second paragraph. regards homegrown players - I googled Madrid homegrown players and used the FM player search list to list them. If the information wasn’t accurate then let’s just move on. Our views on the subject aren’t completely alien, I don’t want top clubs to have an enormous advantage, but unfortunately that’s how it is. - UTD developed Cattermole, Gibson, Richardson, Josh King etc i started this thread with York City - believe me when I say that I would get much more satisfaction from the game if
  8. That is all you have taken from this...where Raul came through from originally. Total deflection from the case in point. “Dreadfully framed” is there any need to be so defensive? as though my quick phone snaps somehow devalue the point I’m making. My gaming PC is not conected to the net so I can’t send screenshots. Samaden is payed £9k a week. And he has suggested that that player above is one he has personally been involved in bringing to a club, the stature of Real Madrid. Technique 3... “There is nothing broken about the feature. It is working exactly
  9. Attaching a perfect example of how broken the Youth intake is. How a HOYD of Samaden’s caliber, is proudly mentioning he has had an influence in bringing in that player, is utterly embarassing. Over 2 hours of reloading and respawning Madrid’s intake, with top facilities, and I haven’t seen one player worthy of signing to the under 19s. The pedigree of youth intake is there. Real have a huge draw when it comes to any players joining an academy in Spain. This overnight spawning method of dealing with youth development needs to be overhauled as it is broken.
  10. Back on FM 2019 1 Career only Blackburn > Napoli > Real Madrid Its brilliant to see that tactics have been overhauled and everything that was confusing on that screen last year has been overhauled. Squad dynamics, player interactions, social media, news reporting etc is all getting to a sufficient albeit repetitive level. The training aspect of the game is cluttered and messy, but it’s overhaul is appreciated. The only thing left to overhaul in 2020 now is the Youth intake, as it is still broken as ever.
  11. I’ve also forced the board into spending and agreeing to have Youth focused Affiliates: Banik Ostrava , defensor sporting, NEC, Nacional De Madeira, Sydney FC I have seen HOYD mention some players coming through came from these which is promising. But nothing decent. I am trying.
  12. Ok just to revise: I expect slightly higher PA in my intake, not CA. Especially after the amount of reloads I have gone through, the odds should eventually fall in my favour. I don’t expect 1st team quality, this is me revising from the original post. I expect a Lower CA now more than ever because my Current first team is getting very very high quality since I made the post. - I’m not stars driven - I like to see promising players stats. - I don’t have any hidden PA CA stats view like you can see in editor I don’t have editor, my FLUT skin shows me players CA and P
  13. I think you are firstly exaggerating, I want flexibility and negotiation and to communicate with my staff. secondly you are underestimating the power a club manager has over his staff. The club comes first, the manager and club is not at the whims of staffs tastes and preferences. A philosophy is in place and you adhere to them.
  14. My rebuttal to this would be that people are inspired and can change their outlook on football by learning from others. The same way we share ideas and tactics and suggestions. For example, Brian Kidds view on strategy has probably changed over the years shadowing Fergie, then Mancini, then Pep. Id also be pretty confident Steve Bould evolved a lot from a hard nosed Center back to a coach and disciple of Wenger over the years. The player shouldn’t be a hostage to the games staff, the game should evolve around you. Especially if you are making huge strides in the footballing un
