  1. Wow! fitness training doesn't build fitness -- what a misnomer. No wonder some people are having trouble with the game, it's confusing. I think I understand what you mean, it helps to increase the stamina attribute. Again, thanks.
  2. I find it strange that there's no need for fitness training during preseason considering the players will be back off their hols nod unfit. However I have noticed that the players are almost fit at the start save lacking match fitness. Maybe it's down to luck but considering it keep happening in my saves it has to be down to training. I'll have harder look and see what's the cause. Thanks for your help.
  3. I don't know. Like I said I do one week high intensity fitness in first week of preseason. I didn't mention this, but I then do a month of tactical training on high intensity until the season starts. Am I not doing enough high intensity fitness training? I used to do two weeks in previous editions but since fm15 I've been getting injuries or players stamina going down quickly so I thought I was over exerting them.
  4. Can someone point me in the right direction in terms of training if it's my training that's causing the injuries. I can't find anything comprehensive.
  5. Hunt3r I did one week of high intensity fitness because I noticed if I did two weeks my players would get injured. To be fair my prayers are beginning to cone back from training and I coped ok but boy was it infuriating. Honestly, I've noticed injuries are a problem until the game has a final patch then they're not so prominent.
  6. Hi sporadicsmiles, thanks for your input. I have my players do one week of high fitness training then let them work on other training aspects at an average intensity so I don't think it's my training. I do rotate the team so others get game time during preseason. I'm used to having the odd annoying long term injury but this getting beyond a joke.
  7. Nearly half my squad have gone down with long term injuries (up to 3-5 months) and I'm now down to the bare bones. I know injury problems can be bad in real life but it's taking the enjoyment out of the game. If the injuries were spread throughout the season even to key players I wouldn't mind but at the start of the season is frustrating. This injury thing happens in almost every edition until rectified in the final patch. Come on si, get it together.
  8. Wwarrddy. That was a very enjoyable read. Brilliant. I'm glad you're enjoying the game. I haven't bought it yet - I like to wait until the final path - but I can't wait to buy it. I'm definitely going to try LLM.
  9. Cheers. It was down to the players losing confidence. They could have given him a chance I mean it was only after 11 games. Player power, eh? Another thing that's wrong with modern football.
  10. I'm not sure if this a bug or even a major issue but in one of my saves, the Manchester United manager (I can't remember who is was) after 11 games and lying in 8th was sacked even though he was 2 points off second. Chelsea are currently 14 points clear at the top and look unstoppable but I think after 11 games it's a bit harsh to sack him. I'm just wondering why he'd be sacked so quickly and considering he's only 2 points off 2nd.
  11. True. I've learned a lot from WWFan in particular, I used to be the one ranting about how much the game was scripted and the AI cracks your tactics. I've realised (after actually taking in and not ignoring advice) that it's not true. There's so much to the game if you take the time to learn and keep it simple and SI have put a load of stuff in there to actually HELP you. I recently read the Scout Report thread by Iam and that has added another dimension to the game. The game's not perfect but it's really not as bad as people make out.
  12. To be fair, after that whole Team Talk thread by Darthrodent I'm much better at it than I've ever been. I always thought it was about getting everyone on green. Even red can mean good. Example: I once told my players at half time that I wasn't happy with their performance, even though we were winning. Most players became motivated but my striker (who had scored was angry). He went on to get a hat trick.
  13. You know what? You're right. I've just done exactly what I was concerned about! Arrggh! Apologies. I'll stay out of this one. :o
  14. I'm confused. I thought Team-Talks didn't have a big affect on your players now someone at SI is telling me they do. No wonder there's so much confusion on how the game works.
  15. BTW, I demand for this thread to be sticked. I know I have no sway on here but it's for the good of the forum I tells ya!
