    Current ability question

    Does form of a player affect the star ratings over the season ? , so if a player plays well over the season can his rating go up , and vice versa ? or has form got nothing to do with Star Ratings ?

    Current ability question

    The star ratings have always done this on FM , you can have the same coach give you a report of say 4 stars on one screen , and you go to another and the same coach says 3.5 stars , so the player drops half a star in one click of a mouse , you begin to distrust the game How can the same Coach with a high JA and JP score give two different star reports on different screens , i even noticed it on the squad depth view , i had a player who was 4 stars , i had a look at something else, went back and he was 3.5 stars , it has to be a bug imo

    How much does player stats matter

    where does it give the average though on FM 2018 (still finishing off a save) , it gives the highest average , the lowest average , the there is a line in the middle , but no actual number next to it , or is just best to try and go for the highest ?

    How much does player stats matter

    Ive always wondered what the average attributes values are for each league , ive always gone by 16 being Prem 14 being championship etc... but as the FM moves on and gets more realistic i wondered if the attribute values for leagues have changed , is it just the important attributes on each role that need to be these values ?

    FM19 Tactical Changes

    Thats what confused me , i noticed if i put more players to a more attacking duty then the more structured it became , i always had it in my head more attacking duties meant more fluid team shape , what ive noticed from playing half a season on the demo is i have changed the duties more often during matches on FM 2019 than i did on FM 2018

    FM19 Tactical Changes

    Thanks guys , i got all confused mid game, i sat for about 10 minutes trying to find it , i must admit i did like the opportunity to change it myself so its a shame its gone , its going to be interesting changing the duties mid game to see what difference it makes

    FM19 Tactical Changes

    ive just downloaded the demo , in 2018 you could go from structured to fluid but using a similar command to changing contain to overload , where is that command now ?? how do i go from a fluid shape to a structured in one instruction ?
  9. Neymar has made this Brazil team completely unlikeable for me , i would love Serbia to get a couple and knock them out

    Group G: England v Panama (1300BST)

    we have looked nervous and dodgy at the back all game , walker isnt a center back and Maguire isnt very mobile

    England V Tunisia 1900 BST BBC1

    Overall i was fairly happy with the performance , ive seen a lot worse from England teams in recent world cups , i liked the fact we didnt give up , first half we created enough chances to put the game away from Tunisia , can we improve : yes we need to , but on the whole i came away quite positive. The Negatives were Sterling , he looked lost and off the pace , whenever he got the ball he seem to dribble into trouble and lose the ball , or his passes were misplaced , the other negative was Ali's injury , i felt he wasnt in the game in the second half and it concerned me that Southgate didnt pick up on the fact he was a passenger at times , same with his decision to leave it so long about Sterling , i would like Southgate to make quicker changes when they are needed

    Germany Vs Mexico 1600 BST BBC1

    Neville whispering commentary is pissing me off , its even rubbing off on Jonathan Pearce
  15. The scouting on FM 2018 is horrible , they took an enjoyable part of FM and made it a chore to do , far too many pages , the search system is dreadful , i think sometimes SI changes things that dont need changing for the sake of it , sadly due to the poor scouting and player search system FM 2018 isnt very good , ive played FM 2018 less than any other variant of the game
