  1. Hi, [TLDR: What attributes have what exact effects on specific set pieces? Can anyone explain what attributes are needed for set pieces and why?] I want to select set piece takers and after hours of searching the forum/3rd party websites, I still don't know what attributes play what role for free kicks, penalties, or corners. The game highlights very few attributes for each set piece; however, there are multiple sources claiming other attributes have a considerable impact as well (even though not explaining what impact or how significant). Free kick tacking: So, I have re
  2. Okay, so in case someone else manages a national team and has a similar problem. Apparently, the reports were "stuck" in my scounting priorities list. It was probably caused by me having initially all scout assignments delegated to my assistant, who has assigned the scouts to do other things. Then, even when I've taken control of the assignments and freed up 3 of the scouts, none of them were up to anything. Only after I cancelled all the old national report requests I was able to request new ones that actually got completed.
  3. Hi, I have scouts hired for national team I am managing, however, I am constantly struggling to get national reports for the players. I want to display PA/PP in national pool, however, only some players have the stars available. Sometimes I can select the players and click (National Team -> Request National Report -> 1 Week) to get some reports, but most of the time there is no such option. Also, when there is, I select e.g. 100 players but then a week later get just 20 reports and then nothing. When I check assignments, I have 3 out of 5 scouts with "no current assignment
  4. Hi, Quite often I get decent loan offers for my players in summer to loan them out for 6 months. Usually those are deals with decent monthly fees so unless it is my key player, I often accept. However, 6 months pass and it is after the end of winter transfer window and after the registration windows. Then I receive a proposal for an extension of the loan, but this time there is a zero fee and contribution. If I want to put the initial fee back in place (or even any smaller fee), the other team rejects. Now I can either have a player of mine playing for another team for free (and indirectl
  5. Hi, for several seasons already I have been getting these messages before matches, sometimes noting that coaches/assistant are concerned about or pleased with match preparation. When I hover the cursor above the progress bar, it shows that all the tactical familiarities are at max except Position/Role/Duty and Creative freedom. My training consists of at least 3 Match preparation sessions every week, usually with at least 1 match in the week. If I have no match, I choose a Match practice instead. I also use both tactical trainings (att/def shadowplay) every week. In weeks when I hav
  6. Ok, I did. Hopefully someone notices it there. Thanks for the clarification.
  7. /*posted in general discussion where people suggested to post it here to get an answer, thus reposting here*/ Hi, I am somewhat confused about some of the goalkeeping stats. So far I thought that stats like Excentricity and Punching were "bad" stats - you don't want your keeper to do anything unexpected and you don't want him to punch the ball when he is supposed to catch it (putting handling ability aside). However, I just noticed that my Team report page listed "Those goalkeepers look to punch the ball rather than attempting to catch it" (among Weaknesses in orange) because I
  8. Is anyone knowledgeable here who could clear this up for me? If my keeper has a high Punching stat, will he punch more often (as in-game skill description suggests) or will he punch less often (as team report suggests)? I have searched the internet and couldn't find a good answer, some old threads imply that the skill description is correct (and therefore the team report must be wrong), but I haven't found any official word.

However, I just noticed that my Team report page listed "Those goalkeepers look to punch the ball rather than attempting to catch it" (among Weaknesses in orange) because I picked my keepers based on (among other things) low Punching stat (First choice was at 6 and backup at 4). I performed a
  10. Hi, I have started a new save as Chelsea and in the first half of the first season, I have conceded at least five goals straight from the bylines - an attacker runs wide, reaches the byline, dribbles towards the goal (typically beats one or two defenders before reaching the small box) and scores. In a previous save I played, I have never seen this (with much worse keepers than Kepa Arrizabalaga), but I also played a lower league (so the strikers/wingers were not elite). Is this beacuse Kepa has some bad stats (visible or hidden) that make him concede from such insane situations, or is thi
  11. Hi, is it possible to view how many games a player of mine played for my team? Some of my players have clauses for wage rise after certain number of games played, but I always get a message just one game before they are eligible for the rise (I would like to know more in advance). Is there a stat somewhere I can view just as there is for international caps? Thanks
  12. So how come every non-graduated coach, scout etc. has a Physiotherapy stat that is competitive? Shouldn't all the others have those stats set to zero if they are supposed to have no degree? All my scouts have Physio/Sports science typically in the range of 1 to 5. This is a 59yo scout I have, his bio says he has been a coach all his professional life (since he was 36) until I hired him as a scout. Another case is my data analyst who has 18 sports science, a data analyst all his life (since he was 27). There seems to be no logic behind the stats, it's just random generated.
  13. He didn't, he acquired Continental Pro license 4 years before I hired him. Thanks for the idea though, wouldn't have thought that coaching course could rebalance the coaching stats to become worse.
  14. Okay, I waited till the end of the season (2 months) and suddenly I was able to offer a new contract after the last game. Not sure what was the problem.
