  1. Nothing to do with the update. every league has a date where the squad numbers are set for the year. They then can’t be changed for a year with only new signings being able to be assigned (available) numbers in the interim. At the start of a save, numbers are also locked until this date.
  2. I do a similar thing with penalties, leave the cursor over where I want my players to shoot. The ball seems to go there a surprisingly high amount.
  3. I've had 'Play Attacking Football' as a club vision from the start and I've almost exclusively used a balanced mentality and never failed to meet the expectation. As @sidslayer says it mostly seems down to creating a good number of chances and scoring goals, plus possibly a bit of territory gain.
  4. Am I reading that right? They're offering you 147million euros a month in salary on a 2 year deal?
  5. I think there is a distinction here that needs to be made. The ongoing ones don't necessarily have to be done within a certain timeframe as far as I'm aware. They are more the cultural tenets of the club. Admittedly, listing them under '5 year plan' would then seem a bit off, so maybe I'm wrong.
  6. I'm not sure about record, but I just sold Calum Chambers for £24m. And he was my 3rd choice RB and 5th choice CB so I'm pretty happy with that price.
  7. I have the opposite problem, I'm almost entirely reliant on my striker when it comes to goals. He's also had the golden boot for 3 out of 4 seasons.
  8. Gotcha. Makes sense. The one caveat I would add then is do it in a friendly, as pre-match build up (press conferences etc) can have an input on the match too.
  9. I get the idea, but do you really find it helps? So much can change between 2 matches with identical set ups that it just feels like this wouldn't really yield that much helpful insight. At least not without a great deal of time invested. And the way the TIs interact with each other (and mentalities, player roles, duties, not to mention PIs) mean that the amount of possibilities is ridiculously high. I get what your trying to say, but for me, I've always tried to build a tactic that appears logical and developed it over a number of different matches.
  10. It's in the top right of the screen - "Improve managerial support" - Took me a while to spot too Main thing I'd do is try and build some relationships with some of the players. I praise players that play well, get PoM and train well. After a while they move up the relationship scale. It's important not to spam with praise though - that can cause additional frustration.
  11. For me I look to either draw them out by not pushing them too hard and then try and counter, or play for set pieces and try and get goals from corners. At the end of the day, you need to find a way to counter what the AI is doing, and if you're coming up against teams that park the bus and then you get hit on the break, you need to set up to defend against counters.
  12. What was your form like in the first half of the season? What tends to happen is teams with low reps get underrated by the AI, and play really openly, which can be tactically countered with a high degree of success. Then what happens is the next time you meet the same team they are more cautious against you and therefore you find it harder to counter their tactics, especially if using the same tactic. This is often assumed to be the AI cracking your tactic, but it's actually more down to the AI showing you more respect. Tactic cracking is not and never has been a thing.
  13. As far as I know, the actual poaching has happened for a couple of versions, it was just not very noticeable. I've had players that have come through (I thought) my own youth system, but when I've sold them, a % has been paid to the club we poached them from. And when I checked they had another club listed in their history. It appears this year that is just more noticeable/visible when it happens.
  14. I had Lukasz Fabianski score one from a clearance on around FM12/13, other than that, no
