  1. I know you get this a lot, but I really think there's something bugged when it comes to players' assessments of their own performances when you criticise them. Usually when people bring this up it's brushed off as being down the personality of players, or the [game] player being too harsh, but something recently occurred to me. It's *only* midfielders who react negatively when you criticise them justifiably for poor performances. When I criticise defenders for poor defending or strikers for poor finishing, they always take it on the chin as long as I'm not being too harsh, but midfielders fairly consistently refuse criticism, and insist that they've played well. I really think there's something badly off in either the specific dialogue lines that check for the wrong stats, or the parameters set there as to what constitutes a "good" performance (on a personal level I'd prefer if the game just went back to the old system of simply saying you played quite/very well/badly). As an example of what I'm talking about, I've uploaded a save to your cloud named "JGB24 Man Utd 2018-19 Save 4". I just got thumped, badly, by Liverpool. I already spoke the the defenders who played badly (Valencia, Bailly, Smalling) and they reacted as you'd expect, ie. apologetic for the performances (even Bailly, who I probably was a bit hard on). But when it came to the midfielders I got the following reactions that you should be able to replicate: To Pogba (6.3 rating, 16 out of 23 passes completed, no key passes, no chances created) - Our strikers were feeding off scraps Pogba - I didn't have enough of the ball Alternatively - Your passing was not good enough Pogba - Have you been to the opticians recently? To Sanchez (6.4 rating, 10 out of 19 passes completed, no key passes, no chances created) - Our strikers were feeding off scraps Sanchez - Have you been to the opticians recently? Alternatively - Your passing was not good enough Sanchez - In my opinion I played well, your criticism is uncalled for To Lingard (6.4 rating, 6 (!) out of 15 passes completed, no key passes, no chances created) - Your passing was not good enough Lingard - Have you been to the opticians recently? Alternatively - Our strikers were feeding off scraps Lingard - I have to disagree, I'm playing some of my best football at the moment (He's not by the way, season average rating is 6.88 after five games, lowest of anyone in the squad who's played regularly) To Mata (6.4 rating, 12 out of 16 passes completed, no key passes, no chances created) - Our strikers were feeding off scraps Mata - Have you been to the opticians recently? Alternatively - Your passing was not good enough Mata - I have to disagree, I'm playing some of my best football at the moment I know this is only one match, but it's repeated itself as an issue during recent matches where I've actually had to criticise midfielders (to be honest I rarely bother unless a team performance has been awful or one specific player has been diabolical). And I want to stress again that the reason why I feel this is a bug is because it only occurs when I'm talking to midfielders and the reactions can be utterly bizarre in terms of how aggressive and defensive midfield players only get when they've been very poor. I definitely think this happened with a patch at some point, maybe the first one, I was able to interact normally with midfielders when I first installed the game. Edit: One thing I forgot to mention is that I did quite a lot of database editing on the team, making some players better, others worse. I haven't got the in game editor though, so I don't think it should affect the save?
  2. Thanks for answering, I've already secured promotion because I'm ten points ahead with only two games to go, so would I be right to assume that the League One rules wouldn't affect me when I get promoted if they're assessed monthly? I know I might still fail the Championship FFP rules as well, but I'm assuming the club would have less of a problem complying with them because income would be higher. I re-read the rules and there's not a hard cap like I thought, I don't even know where I got that idea from.
  3. I'm managing Portsmouth in League One, and long story short, I forgot about FFP because the last FM I played was FM 13, before FFP even existed. I'm going to fail FFP spectacularly, there's no real chance of me getting my wage bill down and keeping a full match squad. Does anyone know what the specific punishment is for failing FFP in League One? It says there's a transfer ban, but never having got one I don't know how long it will last, if it applies to player contracts, or if the board will sell off players to comply. I don't even know if I'll get punished at all if I'm promoted, or whether I'll be judged by the Championship's FFP rules instead (League One has a hard wage cap, if the Championship has one too I'd easily pass that cap). If the transfer ban's only a season and that's the only issue I have to live with, the squad should be strong enough to get by, but anything more than that and I've probably trashcanned a very promising save through my own stupidity in not checking out a new aspect of the game.
