  1. Brian Clough only lasted 44 at Leeds, Dave Bassett had 4 days at Crystal Palace, Marcelo Bielsa walked out at Lazio after only 3 days, so here is Ernesto Valverde lasting 1 day at Tottenham Hotspur, he left to take the Spain job Suppose it's better than Leroy Rosenior who lasted just 10 minutes at Torquay
  2. it's my advanced playmaker (cm) (A) that never seems to get a high rating, in my last game , he was creating good chances and nice passing and got an assist even the game commentary said that the assist will be shown again and again but only got a rating of 7.0, now if the rest of the game he was terrible fair enough, but he was running the show
  3. With Hernandez, its more that Leeds play him at CM IRL, as for in game my first save is with Leeds so won't know what AI would do with him, having looked at Bielsa's preferred formation in game (4-3-3 DM Wide) my guess would be Hernandez would only ever play as a winger which he's never does now IRL (obviously used as a AP out wide and not as a winger)
  4. Is there not club specific data issues this year? Apologies if there is and this is in the wrong place Luke Ayling signed a new contract taking him till 2023, currently ends in 2021: https://www.leedsunited.com/news/team-news/25596/luke-ayling-signs-new-deal Jamie Shackelton signed a new contract till 2024, currently ends 2021: https://www.leedsunited.com/news/team-news/26902/jamie-shackleton-extends-leeds-united-contract Would also have Ayling as accomplished as CB, played there a few times particularly as when playing 3 CB's Pablo Hernandez often plays as a CM these days,
  5. So I changed the kit colours for Leeds in the in-game editor and now the stadium background has disappeared for Leeds, still works for every other club, any ideas why this happens or how to restore the background?
  6. Now this doesn't affect the game whatsoever, there is no crash dump either, I can save game and exit in one and there's nothing wrong with the save upon resumption, just wondered if anyone knew why it happens every time I exit the game, nothing to do with the save either happens on all the saves every time, doesn't cause any issue just a bit weird.
  7. Well maybe there should be something in the game to say which one should be more important, a players instruction or the team instruction is more important I've actually taken people's suggestions on board, as I've shown in a different picture, I've changed formation to 4-2-3-1 and dumped pass into space and be more creative, so a bit harsh But I do still think regardless of my tactics a mid table prem club shouldn't be having over 800+ passes against a top of the table side who are looking to press and play out from the back, I tried to provide evidence of this from RL.
  8. I don't think a winger cross for the sake of it, in RL do you think wingers just cross for the sake of it? I'm pretty sure if the overall message was to work the ball into the box that's what they would do or else the manger would hook them off, we've got onto the wingers being the problem but I don't actually think they are, I've put on my passing and crossing and Villa's, I don't think 9 crosses from my RW is excessive, although it does depend on how they came about and also the delivery type, the player with 10 crosses i'm assuming is my corner kick taker, we had 9 corners. As I look at the
  9. I'm focused on the 5 pressing because from best I can tell it's in this area that Villa had the ball, I get that player roles has a massive impact, but I should be able to tell them I'm not happy with certain things, or that certain things such as cross more often shouldn't be hard coded, I should be able to have them sit more narrow, I should have total control, but I still also believe there is an issue with possession/amount of passes the other team has within the game, I think that despite of player roles I should have more passes/possession against Villa than I did
  10. I tweaked the formation for the next game, still kept the wingers as I said earlier I don't see another option other than IW, I don't want my AF too involved in build up play, I took the point about the HB, I think in a attacking team the HB should be able to step out, Kalvin Phillips plays this role at Leeds and still has plenty of the ball, but I have changed this, also moved my AP to number 10 so pressing should be better, I still think though on Attack he should have naturally moved into this space though. I think the red card allowed us to have the ball more, before then RB h
  11. I don't think it's right because I'm asking my players to press that's all of them in particular the front 5, that can't be happening because of the amount of passes the other team has, and when we do have the ball i'm asking them to take there time on the ball but if there's an opening then go for it, but also to work the ball into the box, I've taken away both be more expressive and pass into space at varying times to see if this helps but what I find if my AP playing less "hollywood" passes to my AF which is again is something I want if it's on to do. I like my players to have the creative
  12. I didn't know that about the possession numbers but Villa still had double the amount of passes which I don't think should be right I'm not trying to copy how Liverpool play, I was just using them as the obvious example of a team that plays a similar formation but press and do it so well but still have majority of possession, I just don't think how my team is setup and how good they are that they should be having so little of the ball against a mid table side, Villa sit 10th and I'm into my 4th season
  13. Because I want them to, I want my cake and I want to eat it , I get you're point but I feel like i'm asking them to keep the ball and they're not, Pep wouldn't be happy so neither am I
