  1. Load up the editor Add nation rules Select add lower divisions and cups to existing structure Choose England Convert to advanced rules Click the England dropdown Select agreement change Untick enabled Save Test rules Save and job done. [basically, you just untick one box!]
  2. Throughout FM19 I must have fired up 20 new saves for lower league management with added databases for various nations. In every single one the AI gives me next to zero midfielders - DMs or MCs. The few that I get or adapt all have a high aggression attribute. It's not been the case before, but it's my consistent experience with FM19.
  3. Who's doing this then? I've fired up a save managing Plymouth Armada at level 14. As you can see from the screen, in pre-season playing higher-level sides, I'm having an easy time of it. The amateur players the AI gave me look like they'd hold their own six levels higher up. The stadium capacity is 750 - I've sold nearly 700 season tickets and selling out for friendlies - the U23 and U18 games are selling out too. I think I'll need to go into the editor to set some restrictions to give myself a bit of a challenge.
  4. For sure a player's effectiveness is conditioned by the quality of opposition, but wouldn't you say that a player with high aggression but low attributes in other areas is going to commit a lot of fouls, however poor the other side is? It's what I find anyway, in save after save. I'd be interested to know what I need to do to get such a player cease picking up bookings.
  5. I now avoid using a BWM not because I don't understand roles, but because I do understand my players. I always manage lower league - currently level 14 amateurs. The players are, quite simply, rubbish. In particular any prospective BWM has high aggression but poor decisions and tacking attributes. He's guaranteed to be a liability and get at least a yellow card.
  6. Did you use Genie last year or previously? I find that this year every update of it has been painfully slow to load up or use generally. It was never like that before, so it may be the bottleneck is with neither FM or your PC, but with GS.
  7. I use CMs all the time. As a lower league manager I don't have fancy-dans who can be playmakers or lah di dah carrilos or whatever. I prefer BWMs but part-timers are too aggressive and mistime their tackles, so they earn a minimum of a yellow every game. CM is, therefore, the safer option.
  8. The female manager of the Scotland Ladies team was previously managing men's side Stirling Uni in the Lowland League.

  10. Can you use the Quirk dosh to max out your youth and training facilities? Would be lovely to get a regular supply line of little quirks year after year.
  11. Yes, I feel those Midlands teams that end up yo-yoing are at a massive disadvantage, but that's the way it rolls.
