  1. Wouldn't balance and strength apply if you were holding the ball in the corner vs opponents tackling to get the ball off them.. I know waste time is part of the defence / contain strategy but this also can invite more pressure on the defence. I would like to see it implemented as a possible shout for if your playing attacking football and winning to be used in last 5 mins or injury time of a game. That way you are not losing the impetus of your main tactic but are wasting time at the other end of the pitch
  2. It would be good to have more team instuctions ie in the last 10 minutes of the game and you are winning you should be able to instruct your players to take the ball to the opposite cornets as they do in real life to waste more time. The player praising and criticising performances also needs looking at as there are no current options for praising / criticising crossing / heading / dribbling / average rating / work rate etc.. in a match or other relevant key performances You can only praise / criticise, goals scored, passing, interceptions and tacklng and a new system of this needs to be implemented to make it feel more loose on what you are praising / criticising the players on
  3. It would be useful to have more tactical analysis of the teams for example if the tactics uses goals scored assists on the prozone was split into home and away so you can get further in depth with this Thoughts ?
  4. I think it would be a great idea to add in celebrations and presentations of a cup / trophy when you win the league at the end of the season and the bigger the competition the more spectacular the presentation so that it doesn't get boring and no-one presentation is the same also for larger competitions when the players run out the tunnel you could have fire displays like at major matches Thoughts?
  5. Currently playing FM16 - I am about 16 seasons in and have managed 4 different clubs winning cups, league titles with each one. I started sunday league rep with a small club and built my way up - what I have noticed is that my reputation is now very good and has been for alot of seasons - yet I never get offered any job interviews for other clubs. When I have moved on I have always had to apply for them first and generally being successful at the interview. No one has ever approached me. I wondered why and if this was a bug in the game as on previous versions with the same success I used to get lots of approaches
  6. HULL CITY COMPETITIONS OVERVIEW Season 2027-28 English Premier League Community Shield FA Cup Lst 4-3 Man Utd - 5th round replay Capital One Cup Champions League Manager comments It was a fight all the way to the end in the PremierLeague - however the team did not seem to have the stamina and fell short in the latter half of the season. Losing the title by 2 points. I noticed the defence seemed to concede alot easier from faster opposition players. Next season I will need to address this to make us stronger. We still managed to win 2 minor trophies though in the Community Shield and Carling One Cup. Further investment will be needed in key areas to make us a force to be recognised with and not a one season wonder. It is also encouraging that over the last two seasons the team has reached the semi final of the Champions League, were nearly there hopefully of having a good squad that can compete well in this competition and hopefully eventually win it MANAGER OVERVIEW History [b]Season Club League League Pos Indo Cup Super Cup Champ Lge Conf Cup Achievements[/b] ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2015/16 Arema Indonesian Super 1st N/A N/A N/A N/A Man of Mth x 3 / Man Year 2016/17 Arema Indonesian Super 1st Won Won East p/o incomplete Man of Mth x 3 / Man Year 2016/17 Arema Indonesian Super 1st Won Won East p/o Won Man of Mth x 3 / Man Year [b]Season Club League League Pos Russ Cup Super Cup Champ Lge Euro Cup Achievements[/b] ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2017/19 Fakel Russian First 9th 6th N/A N/A N/A The Great Escape 2019/20 Fakel Russian First 1st 4th N/A N/A N/A Man Year Runner up 2020/21 Fakel Russian Premier 10th Semi N/A N/A N/A 2021/22 Fakel Russian Premier 7th* Qtr* N/A N/A N/A Quit the club to join Zenit (* indicates league position and round of cup qualified for when quit club) 2021/22 Zenit Russian Premier 2nd N/A N/A N/A 2n rnd 2022/23 Zenit Russian Premier 1st Final N/A Group Stage 1st knockout 2023/24 Zenit Russian Premier 1st 6th rnd Winners Group Stage Qtr Final 2024/25 Zenit Russian Premier 1st Winners Winners Qtr Final N/a Man of Year - Quit club to join Hull [b]Season Club League League Pos Com Shld FA Cup Cap 1 cup Champ Lge Europa Lge Achievements[/b] ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2025/26 Hull English Premier 4th Lst Final 3rd rnd N/a Semi 2026/27 Hull English Premier 1st N/a Final Runner up Semi N/a Man of Mth x 1 / Man Year 2027/28 Hull English Premier 2nd Winners 5th rnd Winners Semi N/a Man of Mth x 2 Season Profile End of Season Review Manager comments I will need to keep a closer eye on the finances in the future - luckily we were only fined for failing the FFP and no points deduction or bans was implemented. TRANSFERS Players Staff Manager comments This season I have recruited more staff especially to coach the youth teams who I see as key for the future of the club. A few of the young players that I scouted when I took over the club are developing well and are brought into the squad for the cup games to aid there development. I already have signed some good quality young players who have wonderkid status. With the right coaching these can progress well in the first team, this will help with the clubs future finances as I have tried to get these as cheap as possible and on good deals. CLUB STATS AND AWARDS CLUB ISSUES Luckily, NEXT SEASON So I survived a takeover, the new board had there own manager lined up and it took a while for them to be convinced by me. I think if I don't achieve big things next season - 'the sack' could be looming - 2nd place may not be enough for the new board. I now have the backroom team in place to really push the young players that I have signed for the future and alot more could start and come through the replace any older / retiring players. As mentioned above though I intend to spend and spend big I will with the key area of strenthening the defence with quicker players. This though will depend upon the wage and transfer budget the new board give me - hopefully I will be backed or I may have to wheel and deal
  7. I generally have been using this guide to get my PPM right http://www.truefootballmanager.com/2012/01/football-manager-2012-player-preferred.html It states that 'Shoot with Power' should be for players with high finishing and technique but low composure. This is one of the reasons I questioned it as the coaches where stating that my central defenders should be coached in it but there finishing was around 5 and technique 7. Which imo was not high enough. Basicially because on the above guide - my central defenders ratings in tackling, anticipation and decisions are above 16 - 17 - which I felt was high enough for this to be successful for them to do in matches without causing a danger. At one of my previous clubs on another save I had central defenders who had high ratings in theses areas and even though there was a risk, they managed to pull the ppm off more often than not. From experience this has tended to work with central defenders as long as the rating has being high enough.
  8. How can you convince your coaches that players are good enough to be trained in a PPM For example I have a number of defenders who are Tackling 16, Antipation 15 and Decisions 15 or just above or below and I ask them to dive into tackles yet all the coaches say that it won't be successful. Some even suggest that they should shoot with power and there ratings in finishing and technique are below 10. It doesn't make sense that the on some players the attributes are good enough for the coaches to coach but they won't or if they do it comes back as the training was unsuccessful
  9. HULL CITY COMPETITIONS OVERVIEW Season 2026-27 English Premier League Community Shield N/A FA Cup Capital One Cup Chelsea Lost 3-2 Final Champions League Manager comments Following strengthening the team it was a fantastic achievement to win the Premiership, be runners up in the Capital One Cup and reach the semi final in the Champions League. Who would have thought a club like Hull could have this success. The team is getting old and certain positions need to be strengthend to gain further success. We also need to look at fetching in good young players MANAGER OVERVIEW History [b]Season Club League League Pos Indo Cup Super Cup Champ Lge Conf Cup Achievements[/b] ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2015/16 Arema Indonesian Super 1st N/A N/A N/A N/A Man of Mth x 3 / Man Year 2016/17 Arema Indonesian Super 1st Won Won East p/o incomplete Man of Mth x 3 / Man Year 2016/17 Arema Indonesian Super 1st Won Won East p/o Won Man of Mth x 3 / Man Year [b]Season Club League League Pos Russ Cup Super Cup Champ Lge Euro Cup Achievements[/b] ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2017/19 Fakel Russian First 9th 6th N/A N/A N/A The Great Escape 2019/20 Fakel Russian First 1st 4th N/A N/A N/A Man Year Runner up 2020/21 Fakel Russian Premier 10th Semi N/A N/A N/A 2021/22 Fakel Russian Premier 7th* Qtr* N/A N/A N/A Quit the club to join Zenit (* indicates league position and round of cup qualified for when quit club) 2021/22 Zenit Russian Premier 2nd N/A N/A N/A 2n rnd 2022/23 Zenit Russian Premier 1st Final N/A Group Stage 1st knockout 2023/24 Zenit Russian Premier 1st 6th rnd Winners Group Stage Qtr Final 2024/25 Zenit Russian Premier 1st Winners Winners Qtr Final N/a Man of Year - Quit club to join Hull [b]Season Club League League Pos Com Shld FA Cup Cap 1 cup Champ Lge Europa Lge Achievements[/b] ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2025/26 Hull English Premier 4th Lst Final 3rd rnd N/a Semi 2026/27 Hull English Premier 1st N/a Final Runner up Semi N/a Man of Mth x 1 / Man Year Season Profile End of Season Review TRANSFERS Players Staff Manager comments I need to strengthen in a few key positions and also look at world class quality players if we are to progress and win the Champions League. I will also need to recruit more scouts to improve the clubs scouting knowledge along with more coaches. I am particularly need to fetch in some youth coaches to train up the young quality players who I intend to find and sign. Who if they progress well will have a roll in the First Team CLUB STATS AND AWARDS NEXT SEASON I think it will be difficult to retain the Premiership crown as there are alot of good teams in the league. However my aim is to do so, along with the FA cup and hopefully with the players I intend to bring in we could go one step further this season and make the Champions League Final, hopefully winning it. I admit though that my ambitions are high and it will be a tough ask without the right recruitment and being able to attract the right players to the areas I believe need strengthening
  10. Can anyone advise how to get your scouting to 100% club knowledge. I have employed alot of scouts (17) each from different areas of the world so they have counteracting knowledge and set them to scout the areas that they have no knowledge in. I also employ scouts with good determination so that they find alot of players My club scouting knowledge does not appear to be rising over the last 3 seasons and appears to be stuck on 32-33% even though I am changing their assignments constantly once the first assignment has been completed
  11. HULL CITY COMPETITIONS OVERVIEW Season 2025-26 English Premier League Community Shield FA Cup Capital One Cup Manchester City Lost 3-2 Third Round Europa League Arsenal Lost 3-2(agg) Semi Final Manager comments For my first season at Hull we did remarkably well finishing 4th in the league which is a club record and also secures a Champions League spot for next season. We had great success in the Europa League and made it to the FA cup final again. I believe these first seasons successes will be a great foundation to build upon to challenge for greater things in the future.

I have also looked at building for the future and brought in a number of highly rated youngsters and hope that they will make it through in there development. I have and will continue to look for younger players as the squad at Hull is quite old in certain departments and also the goalkeeper is quite small in height and this needs to be addressed if we are to progress how I wish us to. CLUB STATS AND AWARDS NEXT SEASON I will continue to strengthen the squad in the areas in needs while also looking at the future and bringing in young players. We have a good solid foundation to build up from and I hope that this will be the catalyst for future success.
  12. My team is due to fail the FFP on the yearly wage expenditure in the Premiership and will face a fine or a 5 point deduction the following season. The allowed FFP is £131M and I am projected to spend £144M - my wage budget is £147M and I am currently spending £138M so am well in the wage budget limit. When I took over the club there were some players I needed to buy and some players who were signed by the previous manager on high wages who are no good. I have tried to get rid of them in 2 transder windows but am failing miserably as no-one wants them. When I noticed the FFP was high I did some research on this site and other forum users suggested that the FFP will vary and the allowed FFP could change - I am now 6months into the season and no change has happened - apart from selling these players on high wages - is there another way I can attempt to change the allowed FFP - is it to do with the clubs turnover or something like that?

  14. My aim was always to manage in the English Premier League and I was just waiting for my chance. But when this job came up I just had to apply as the club is my hometown club and the one I support - I hope I get it To manage my hometown team and the club I support in the Premiership will be a great. I hope I can progress on my earlier success with my previous clubs - wish my luck the step up will be massive and time may be needed. I have agreed to the following terms in my contract As part of the deal to fetch me to the club I must agree to the following philosophies Club Background League Position History Current League Overview/Media Predictions Affiliates Staff Members Squad Facilities Finances Board Expectations Assessment The squad is quite old in certain areas. I will look to hire some further scouts and coaches fetching more from the Zenit back room team if they will join me. I will look to scout youngsters and try to build a better under 18 and 21 team so that I have quality coming through. I will look at scouting areas we are weak in and also see if I can attract Morata and some other worldclass players from Zenit to Hull. I hope to be at Hull for alot of years with them been the club I support and my hometown club. I really hope I achieve the same type of success I have had at my previous clubs. It will be difficult so wish me luck!!
  15. ZENIT COMPETITIONS OVERVIEW Season 2024-25 Russian Premier League Super Cup Russian Cup Champions League EURO Cup N/A Manager comments The team did fantastically well to only drop 2 points in the league and are currently unbeaten for over 40 games. We did better in the Champions League getting through to the quarter finals and putting up a good fight against a strong Real Madrid side. I am beginning to believe due to the lack of Russian talent and the squad restriction rules we may never be strong enough to compete in this competition or be able to build a squad capable of beating the likes of Manchester City, Barcelona.

This will serve the team well for the future. CLUB STATS AND AWARDS NEXT SEASON I have now won everything in Russian Football and have a squad capable of walking the league each season. I will not invest much money as the past two seasons on transfers but will look at bringing in younger players for the future and developing them - if I need to pay a fee for some of the better youngsters in Russia then I will. I am negotiating with the board to improve the training and youth facilities to help me achieve this. My issue is with the European Football as Russia does not seem to produce many quality players to compete in the Champions League / Europa League and I have to rely upon foreign players. The Rules and Regulations of the league in Russia where I am only allowed 6 foreign players in the first team is really starting to hinder the European campaigns as the Russian players are not good enough. I have one year left on my contract and will see what it brings.
