  1. To be honest I've played this way for years and never found it to be demanding injury wise. 8 friendlies in pre-season - 4 for the first team, 4 for the 2nd team. Key highlights to see the occasional nice goal. Everybody ready for the season bar the 3/4 hanging around on the fringes who pay the U23's friendlies. No mass substitutions, no ball ache.
  2. Olympics is essentially an under 23's tournament is it not, that you know is coming every four years. I realise stocking teams with U23 potential is a huge attraction to FM players, but it means you will have to plan for things like this.
  3. Dug your own hole there like, hardly the games fault.
  4. You're not seeing this option under Dev Centre > Under 18's > Tactics? I'm not sure how much it will actually help tbh.
  5. Does he fit in role wise to the tactic being played in the U18's? If you go to Dev Centre, U18's tactics, you can select if the team plays your first team tactic or the U18's managers preferred, could help. Despite being 17, is he classed as O18 in the squad? Depends on their date of birth not their listed current age. If playing in a U18 comp he will be limited to the amount of these he can play (think it's 2 or 3). Couple of guesses if that helps.
  6. If you're loading the your tactic again from the overview screen, either into a new slot and then clearing the other slot, or to reset changes you might have made, it can reset the set pieces.
  7. Yeah I have to say as a returning player from '17 it was disappointing to find that there's nothing really been added to set piece options since then, I don't recall anything different about it in '14 either, and we could keeping going back... Still has limitations in picking takers, I can't select a list of options and it picks randomly, it's either the first name, or it'll pick from the whole team, making as you say setting up individual instructions for corners etc. more of a hassle than it really needs to be. I do still enjoy putting together a successful corner routine and watc
  8. No idea mate, never used it. But you can just click Add New Manager in the FM menu at any time.
  9. It will add a second manager to your game, for two player, or three/foure/five etc. or to run both profiles yourself.
  10. I'd have to say, and others have touched on it more, but keeping a general level of fitness high is worth putting time into. Make sure your senior players who aren't getting much game time are playing for the U23's, so when they do need to come in they're not coming in at 50% sharpness. Have the best fitness coaches x2 and medical staff you can get or afford, you should always be aiming for best in division in all areas but those especially. I remember moving from a team I had managed for a long time to Newcastle in February, and I was shocked to find players their were jaded
  11. People saying it's too complicated now would have loved the sliders back in the day Is it 1 notch too far to the left or 1 notch too far to the right
  12. Have you filtered players willing to join you? Interested, doubtful etc.
  13. Does your scouting package cover where he plays?
