4 "What we've got here is a failure to communicate"
  1. This problem has been up since at least fm20. Absolutely maddening. Cross early doesn't fix it either.
  2. This has been a weird error for multiple iterations where I just see my fullbacks dribble past an open chance to cross, wait for the defender to close them down, then absolutely smash it point blank into their shins. Forever. And this is not while set to "play for set pieces".
  3. Im almost 7 years into a save and I occasionally have players draw interest from "big" clubs that have fallen into decline. They have a fit that I won't let them leave and refuse new contracts and more money didn't interest them. For example, Moukoko wanted to leave to R Madrid. They are not one of his favored clubs, at this time i believe they had fallen to 13th on club reputation while I was sitting at 1st. He gets all the playing time and money he wants. This seems like something that would be adjusted as the game progresses. file name - Joel Cunningham - Arsenal (v03).fm
  4. Perhaps I'm the only one to observe this, but my god, it's constant.... I put a fresh Salah against an injured, yellow carded, 60% con, Xhaka playing at right-back, and there is no discernible difference to exploit. The sheer number of times I for luck or tactic have my team at 80% and a number of them are low 60's and nothing changes. The last 15 minutes they have more of the ball, and more shots and threats. Injured players don't play worse, targeting a player out of position doesn't yield anything extra. This just shouldn't be. Am I alone? Be slower, be less willing to go forward, get caught out of position more.
  5. That's just painful though. I already had them, so the huge spike doesn't have sense, and comparing it to similar wonderkids and high performers it just has no bearing at all. You'd expect that if anything a wonderkid being picked up by Barcelona is where the huge demands would come in.
  6. I've been playing for years and have practice negotiating contracts and such but having a few wonder kids in my squad, when their contracts are coming up, their demands are INSANE. And the others are constantly pushing for raises and ignoring all the usual means, like saying I can't afford it or they have lots of time or not disrupting the atmosphere. Sergio Gomez opened with demands of $200,000 up from I think $28,000 at 19 years of age. He's at 3 stars, is NOT wanted by any clubs and completely breaking my wage model. Pietro Pelligri demanded $195,000 even as backup striker and no outside interest, Upemecano demanded $185,000 from $42000. All of these were happy at the club. Now, Frenkie de Jong has been purchased by Tottenham and he's on $95k, Youri is on $74k, Paqueta is $125k and ARTHUR is freaking $84k at Barcelona. They are all kids, 3 starsish and they all break down contract negotiations with any kind of push back even though none had any desires to leave. I didnt sign a single player in a year and still blew my FFP just from contract negotiations. I know this is part of the game but compare their skills and wages against what AI clubs and players manage to work out. This is crazy
