  1. What major issues do you see with the roles and duties? In terms of role suitability, I am talking about the green circle. A BWM in a defensive role must work better than a BBM for this?
  2. Thanks for all the feedback. I definitely need to look at tweaking my TIs. I have been so convinced morale and motivational aspects cause my blips in form that I haven’t looked at my roles and instructions in enough depth. I think you all agree my tactics are responsible and my ups and downs and can be related to player form on the day. So when my players don’t play great, the weaknesses in the tactic are really exposed. One of my friends mentioned I’m not playing any players in their most suitable role and this is something else I need to look into. In the past I
  3. Hi Folks, I’m currently playing a game of FM19 with Rangers. I’m in my 4th season and I’ve finished 2nd in the league in the previous 3 seasons. I tend to fall 20-30 points behind Celtic each season. So I tend to find I go on a good run at the start of the season , morale gets as high as it can and my players are looking motivated. This season I lost my form after a game to Hibs. I beat them 5-1 in the cup semi final (with complete domination) and then directly after I played them in the league at home and lost 1-0 in a pretty even game. My form is now in a LWLWLW fashi
  4. Hi folks, So my team has been on good form at the start of the season, team morale is generally superb. I’ve just come off another victory, praised my players and got no negative feedback. With a few of the players, the praise “went to their heads”, but this is no great concern. So a couple of days after this victory, I notice the general morale of my team has gone down to okay/good for most players. A significant drop! Theres two reasons I can think of: In the previous game I put a player into my team with “poor” morale. He wants to leave the club because he think s I bou
  5. I think you have just set your attribute too low when you built your manager. You must be doing everything right if you have managed to get 100% and increase your attributes. I feel like I’m doing the same as you but not getting improvement in this stat. Do you give the players what they want when they complain? Do you criticise victories if performance was low?
  6. I would say I follow the same sort've path as yourself but my rating sits at 50%.
  7. My feedback only for the pre match talk will say “nothing specific noted”, “listened keenly “ etc. Occasionally I get instances where a couple of players gain motivation or confidence. I get better responses from my players at half time and full time
  8. I'm always hard on my players when not getting the result we should be getting at half time or full time. "Disappointing" is the type of response I give assertively. I will always calmly praise the team when we win.
  9. I almost always get a positive reaction I almost always get a positive reaction from my half time and full time team talks. Players gain confidence, seem motivated, are fired up , look delighted etc.
  10. What team talk would you use instead to prevent your players becoming complacent? I always felt that works best for me, until it stops working. I normally do well in my first season up to new year, then everything falls apart. I think it must be related to my team talks.
  11. For instance, I normally take charge of a high reputation club ( for the league) like Rangers, Man Utd, Barcelona etc. I often use " I expect a win" so my players don't become complacent against the smaller teams. Is there something I'm doing wrong here if I'm using that ( or another version of it) for each team talk?
  12. Did you select an attribute of 1 when you built your manager?I think you are doing the correct things. You have increased your stats by 2 points. Its just going to take time. It think if you rebuilt your manager stats you would see an increase in two points from your chosen starting attribute. What have you been doing to get your Handling Team Discipline up to 100%? Mine has dropped to 45% and I have always been poor in this area across all the Football Managers. Do you constantly fine players? Or do you use aggressive team talks often? Or you refuse to give praise after winning?
  13. Hi folks, Has anyone noticed a dive in team morale at half time? Even if my players are playing well and have a good scoreline, morale seems to take a dive. Team cohesion, dressing room atmosphere and managerial support are all "very good". Its confused me as to what team talk to give at half time. Really confused why this happens. Am I missing something? Only point I could make is I rarely get any sort've feedback from my players after my pre-match team talk anymore. Maybe I'm using the same team talk ( or team talks in general) too often? My assistant often tells me not to sa
  14. I used to go through a similar thing. In my opinion its the team talks and press conferences that sort the problem. Your team might not be well disciplined and you may become complacent against smaller teams after a while. Be harsh to your players with your team talks.Theres some good threads in here somewhere that explain team talks well. Always keep an eye on the match odds so you know what strategy to go out with as well. These are the key points that helped me. Hope it works for you.
  15. Ive just found out how to stop becoming complacent against smaller teams. Now im having a problem with being "overawed" by teams with a higher reputation than my own. Does anyone have any idea how to sort this? Any help at all is welcomed.
  16. Yea, it kind of makes sense. I ll give it a try and let you know what happens. I mean this has been happening to me throughout all the football managers. Thats about the best explanation ive heard so far. I usually take control of higher reputation teams as it. Thats my only concern with your explanation. If you or anyone else has anything to add it would be much appreciated. Cheers Steve
  17. Hi. I have a problem that when I start a new game I go on a good run of results. Then all of a sudden i just start losing even though i play with the same approach. Can someone tell me why this happens and possibly help me? That would be great. Cheers Steve
