  1. So now he has been drawn into the first team squad . Well, give him a -95 then. It's a lot harder to get anywhere near Man Uniteds first team then most other teams, including FC Barcelona. This is especially true currently with the huge (too big) squad depth. I'd say Shoretire is more impressive then Greenwood at this age. Greenwood was nowhere near the first team squad aged 16, with a weaker squad mind you. Greenwoods PA was also too low in FM19, so why making a mistake twice? I'd also say (from watching both), that there shouldn't be any discussion, that Shoretires technique (first touch, ba
  2. There was a filter in the in-game editor in scouting, where you could filter all and only newgens. This filter was the sole reason for me to purchase the in-game editor period. This filter is very very important for me, since i use it to automate giving the newgens "real faces". This is the only way i have fun playing a long-time save. In the latest upate this filter was deleted from the in-game editor. Why was this filter deleted? It was the single most important function of the in-game editor for me. I really hope you will bring it back? Why would you take away such an importa
  3. I already mentioned him being underrepresented in the beta-forum, but i feel this has to be mentioned again: Shola Shoretire of Manchester United. He is in the U23 squad, not in the U18. He is easily one of the best players there already and a definitive starter. In my save, if i force him into the U23, the staff constantly advises me to put him back to the U18 and never gives him even a minute to play. I feel this should be fixed and his CA should be altered accordingly, to get him into the starting 11 of the U23s. I also feel his PA with -8.5 is really too low. Should be 9.5
  4. There is a fix (mod) for all data-related stuff in Italy, i am sure you'll find it when you search the internet
  5. Here is enough evidence to rethink the rating of pretty much everyone of the best freekick takers on the planet: https://soccerment.com/bend-like-beckham-top-free-kick-takers-europe/ This article is from last april and even then Ward-Prowse was amongst the best direct freekick takers (for example better then Messi who has 19 in FM). Since then Ward-Prowse has even massively upped his conversion rate. If you factor in the higher level of goalkeeping in the Prem compared to other leagues like La Liga or Serie A, this should be regarded even higher. This article (written before his last
  6. Jonathan Bamba from Lille is really not good enough. Crossing 12 should be altered to 15: It's one of his unique strengths according to whoscored, while vision is also very good compared to other attackers according to soccerment analytics. Heading 5 should be altered to 10: He is not a good header, but also far away from really bad ones (like Ousmane Dembele for example) Long shots 11 should be altered to 15: he had a few screamers recently and it's also one of his unique strengths according to whoscred Passing 11 should be altered to 14: again one of his strengths in real
  7. I think Barca and Real are way too good overall, but that has mostly been the case in recent years and is just even more evident this year. I could pick 10 players now, but i'd like to start with a simple stat that is easily proven: Messi's freekick stats are way too high (19). I would not give more then 15. Yes, he got quite a few direct freekick goals, but that's only because he fired tons of them. Ward-Prowse for example (who btw has a 15 in game) has a lot better conversion rate then Messi. Even Griezmann and Coutinho are both better freekick takers. I guess you would have to wor
  8. Ward-Prowse should have at least a 19 in free-kicks, if not a 20. Even in summer he was one of the best freekick takers on the planet, with his freekick goals this season he has the best direct freekick conversion rate of all footballers in major leagues on the planet.
  9. Semedo also has a better acceleration in FM (better by 2 or 3 points if i remember right). Thing is, the difference should not be negligible at all, but Justin should be quite a bit quicker, at least by 2 points in both acceleration and topspeed. Semedo was rapid at Benfica and Barcelona, probably the fastest player at Barcelona. I don't know if there was a dip in top speed, i wouldn't know why at his age. So the point still stands - Justin is quite a bit quicker then the "rapid" Semedo. Justin was galloping past players in the last two or 3 games, the problem is, he is not as fast with t
  10. I'd say the reason why he doesn't score often is more his positioning and less bad finishing. He just doesn't get into a finishing position very often. At least the last half year or so he has been very clinical if in front of goal.
  11. I think Morata's finishing has always been his main weakness ever since he became a professional footballer and the main reason, why he didn't cut it at Chelsea and not really at Atletico. Raising it up based on 9 matches would probably be a bit too optimistic. I think if he keeps his goal scoring form until winter and it's not only good short-time form, in the winter update it should definitely be upped. Agree on Chiesa, he seems to be the best winger at Juventus right now.
  12. Thank you, that sounds reasonable. I think they shouldn't be a relegation candidate in FM21, because they definitely have not one of the worst 3 or 4 squads in the Bundesliga. Their current real life form has more/other reasons then just player ability. Toning them down to a midfield / lower midfield side in terms of player ability definitely sounds about right.
  13. Fully agree, i have seen most Lille games and think he is their best player this season. In my saves he has been sold, because of not getting enough playing time at Lille. There is a huge gap between reality and FM currently.
  14. Fully agree. I started a save with Schalke and those where 2 (well 1.5) of the 3 issues i had with the ratings. Bentaleb's CA is quite high, but he still did quite bad in my save which led me dropping him on the bench mostly - pretty realistic. He also is a good player in real life if he hits it right, i think it's his mentality and psychology which is the problem. At least in my save this was the case as well. Malik Thiaw: Fully agree, he didn't even get into the starting 11 of my second team. Needs a huge buff. Third one i would add is Schöpf. Once again (has also been the ca
  15. Definitely agree on "raw" and limited mental attributes. But i think in real life his technique is quite good for a defender, especially in dribbling and long balls / crosses. Good to hear the "test" on Grealish, hope that is happening in AI controlled teams as well. Good to hear, thank you. Where can i check this "random PA" in FM21?
  16. I watched Wolves against Leicester two weeks ago and noticed one thing, that is not represented properly in FM21: The speed of James Justin and/or Nelson Semedo. Both started the game and had a few running duels throughout the game. James Justin was a lot quicker then Nelson Semedo, both in acceleration and top speed. Made Semedo look quite slow to be honest. Currently Semedo is quicker in FM21. So either Semedo is too quick or James Justin is too slow. I guess a bit of both, with the bigger deviation on James Justin's side. He is really one of the quickest players in the PL by now, this is un
