  1. This is the logical root = Try to sell him for as much as possible, if no Try to sell him for whatever you can get, if no Try to sell him for 0, if no Try to loan him out for full wages paid, if no Try to loan him out for half wages paid, if no Last resort, release for the full amount.
  2. It's actually called "jumping reach" and if you hover over the stat it explains this is the highest point the player can reach in the air. So a 5ft 10 player with 14 jumping and a 6ft 4 player with 14 jumping will both reach the same point with their head.
  3. Here is an example. He basically cuts out the forwards and midfield from the defensive phase and ends up a cross in the box for my two strikers. Syzminski Highlights.ogv
  4. Way too much for a championship side like me lol. maybe if i get in the prem next year
  5. I am Lincoln but im in the premier league in my 8th season now. Instead of doing this with my Lincoln save i started a new game with Leeds, i actually ended up playing a 5-3-2 with the DCL and DCR as ball playing centre backs and pontus jannson in between them, with a CM on defense duty (kalvin phillips) and two box to box midfielders. Finding players with this trait is actually really really hard, i ended up buying matt clarke (4.8m) again and play him as the DCL and a player from Palermo called Szyminski for about 900k as the DCR, both have the bring ball out of defense trait and both have good potential. So far i've won 8 drawn 3 lost 1. It seems to be working well because i very rarely concede a clear cut chance.
  6. One thing i never do is play a player in a position with orange or red. They usually get very bad ratings.
  7. I'd say the best way to do it is to put your wingers closing down on lower so they dont run far up the pitch to close the ball down and set them to man mark the opponents wingers, this will mean your full backs are back behind the ball and that your wingers stay close to there wingers when the opponent is in possession. second option would be to just actually change your formation to 4411 but id take a guess your wingers cant play RM or LM
  8. So i've had matt clarke on my Lincoln save for 3 years in the prem and his average rating is 7.08, 7.21, 7.15 which is pretty good for a centre back. But the best thing i keep noticing is he dribbles the ball out of defense sometimes even beyond the half way line then plays a pass to my inside forwards etc. It seems to work really well when we are in a close game or struggling to break down a team. So does anyone know any other good premier league standard players with the trait to bring ball out of defense so i can play with 2 of them then i'll probably play a half back or anchor man between them for cover, he also has runs with ball down left, so is that playing a part too or does that only work when he's at Left back? Also i have tried training it to a few other players but it seems anyone with dribbling lower than 12 or 13 wont learn it.
  9. Basically i just got the pre season welcome message only a week after the season ended. I thought maybe its just a glitch, but then i looked at my squad and they arent on holiday and all my training is booked in for the next 4 weeks as though were still training? now i fear theyre never going to go on holiday for the end of season. if this seems to be the case i suppose ill just put a few rest weeks in, has this happened to anyone or can anyone shed light on what the fs going on?
  10. i'm sure one of the most important things is their reputation and how good they were as a player? so for instance if you had john terry as head of youth he'd bring in a lot of good centre halfs? can anyone back this up?
  11. another thing worth mentioning, does anyone give their forwards high goal bonuses? for instance if my strikers on 20k a week ill give him a 5k goal bonus which is quite a lot compared to his wage, do goal bonus actually get you more goals?
  12. it was 2-1. i lost the previous 2 games aswell without scoring a goal. one thing i did notice is that bournemouths manager said that we were't good enough to stay up, i wonder if it spurred my players on who have pretty high determination?
  13. This is the first time i've ever scored 10 goals in a premier league match. it's my first season in the PL with Lincoln and i just got pumped 6-0 a couple of games ago. by man united. whats the most goals youve scored in a league game on FM?
  14. it's risk and reward though. the reason you might struggle to score so much is because you have so many players on support duties. i usally find with that formation that the DM helps a lot when the full backs go forward, also the cm's should still track back when you lose possession. do you use regroup or counter press?
  15. I'd set the IF/L to attack and the WB/L to attack, change the PF to an Advanced Forward, put both your Central Midfielders to Get Further Forward on their player instructions. doing these small changes will mean your have more players in and around the box during attacking phases and should get more goals. Also in formations with Inside forward, it's important that they have good stats in finsiing, long shots, technique, composure etc... this will mean you get more goals from him when he cuts inside and shoots.
  16. the only times i have a slump at the start is because either i brought too many new players in or my team hadn't learned the tactics fully yet. for instance in this save how many of your first 11 have only just been signed and how full are your tactic familiarity bars?
  17. On my lincoln save i have no reserve team and i'm up to the championship now. it's really frustrating trying to keep my second string match fit... i like to keep a squad of 21-22 players and rotate them in the weeks where we play 2 games or cup games etc but i'm getting to times where i need them to play and their match sharpness is really low which results in poor performance or injuries. Is there anyway to get a reserve team made via the board etc?
  18. nice one mate! just looked at him and he's still on my shortlist yet he doesn't come up when i search my short list or in the search bar, can't get my head around it lol
  19. Looking for a right back called Mike on fm19, seems that hes gone off my shortlist, i cant remember who he played for, cant find him in the search bar because his name is well... just "mike", looked through transfer history of all portuguese first and second division, cannot find him. He was just expired and i think he was 29 so surely he hasnt retired after being without contract for 1 month? if anyone could tell me who he played for so i could look at their transfer history and track him down that would be great.
  20. i thought there was a separate thread where people downloaded a test file and then submitted the results of their pc?
  21. can someone direct me to the thread that has a database of all the processing times of each cpu etc?
  22. i'd actually prefer saraiva over him because hes better in the air. usually what i do is ill look for someone as good as him to replace him for less than the money you will get.
