  1. A conundrum for managers all over the world The best option is to score another goal yourself. Else if you go defensive then men behind the ball, low tempo, time waste, keep possession. If the other team want something from the game they will go offensive, maybe look to counter-attack
  2. One off games like visits to Wembley dont really count for much, its the week in / week out home attendances that count but I see what you mean about potential. What you point out in FM is something a lot of the LLM managers highlight when taking smaller supported clubs to the premiership and greater success In 2018/19 you averaged 8320. Here is an interesting post about Rovers attendances: https://www.bristolpost.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/gasheads-gone-bristol-rovers-crowds-3297869 Looking at the FM club stats for the Memorial ground it currently shows average 8933, minimum 3,000 and max 22,000 so your average in the game is perhaps higher than reality. I think the issue is that the FM game doesnt scale up as would be expected for clubs being FM managed to top level success. This would be worth raising in the FM Future enhancements thread. The issue has been raised several times in the forums Also note that the 2019/20 average attendances for Leicester, Wolves and Sheff Utd was between 24-25k
  3. At Portsmouth we have a 1st Team Squad, no u23 but an U18 development squad. The reality of this is that in real life we try to loan out all our players that would otherwise be in a Portsmouth U23 side. Those left or outside of the 1st team squad may get some playing time in games such as Leasing Cup. Catlin has said it would take a large investment to run an U23 side correctly and properly. I can't see this happening until we are a stable Championship side. However the potential new wage caps may mean that as U23 players dont count we may invest more in this. Eisner has indicated he wants the club self sufficient and developing more home grown talent. Adam May is possibly one that we have let go of as we cant maintain an U23 side of players between Development and 1st team squads In FM, Pompey is set so that 1st Team and U18 have sides entered in leagues. Portsmouth are not entered into a U23 league but they do generate FM friendlies allowing 1st squad players to play in U23 matches and fitness maintained for players in the U23 "squad" not loaned out. You could also move stronger U18 players into "U23s" to see how they do There is no FM reason why you cant bring U18 players into the 1st team to blood them or to play in Cup matches and then put them back In terms of what you propose Im not quite sure what you are suggesting. The realities of players release in real life is the Manager's, the same as it is for the FM manager
  4. Ruud Van Nistelroy - Wasn't he bought with or just prior to his ACL by Man Utd? I expect there is an an SI Opportunity for logic changes around injuries, players in recovery and player purchases that exist in life but not in game. Personally I would see it as a risk and given the contracted fee and wages this could be a significant amount to invest and have the player break-down post transfer. It wont matter how much you tell your FM bard you want the transfer to go through, as in real life they are accountable for the cash and if there is what they feel a significant risk then quite rightly the transfer should be cancelled
  5. please post the actual news item. This wont refer to home grown players and when I've had this I think the salay minimum for foreign players was £8k/w
  6. Where does FM21 sit - LOL no-one knows what the effect will be, how long has it been, 3 weekends so far? I'd imagine they will carry on as normal with whatever development they had planned. Plenty of time to make changes. Its clear a number of events will be postponed but at the moment its all talk and speculation until its fact
  7. Have you raised a bug with details confirming the vast majority of passes from GK are long?
  8. From what I saw of the text at the bottom of the screen it doesnt say Almada is offside, its simply says off-side and given the attacking players in front of the keeper there is a case for intefering in an off-side position Looks fair to me Im afraid
  9. Issue: 2 Portsmouth players are wearing what appears to be the referee's kit in stead of club kit, blue for this match Recreate: Portsmouth were playing a 4-2-3-1. At start all players in blue shirt, blue shorts, red socks. During 2nd half I changed formation to 4-2-4, not a tactic change but moving AMC to striker position and changed old AMC player for striker. From this point both strikers then wore dark or all black kit referee style PKM Mr Pompey - 2 Players in wrong kit Ive not noticed this before its the first match played since the last update (which must be in the last week) to the exe file which was run today

  11. I dont believe he mentioned making multiple board requests. In this case its clearly a bug
  12. You completely missed the point of the post. The sacking has been made due to no silverware won yet his team can still win the league title. No board in the world would sack a manger in this position
  13. Its clearly a bug. The decision on silverware needs to be taken at the season end and not before
  14. The ME is not scripted and we tend to ignore our own last minute draws or wins but notice the oppositions more when they do it Are you changing your tactics to contain after scoring? Limiting some of your attacking players. Maybe go to counter attack as you know they will come at you. Go hard tackling for a bit and disrupt. It wont always work but there are options
