  1. Nice one. Pleased to see you writing about FM again. Looking forward to this 👍
  2. In the set piece creator, you can assign only one player to 'mark tall player' when defending free-kicks, either direct with a small chance of a shot, indirect (wide) or indirect (deep). When trying to set a second player, you can only swap with the player already on that duty. I can only imagine this is a bug and is not a deliberate setting that only one player can man-mark a tall player.
  3. Pretty simple but on the Home Screen dropdown for Team Stats, the ranks for where your team are in terms of Goals Scored and Goals Conceded are showing the wrong descriptors. In the example attached, my team has scored the 4th fewest goals and conceded the 4th fewest goals. This should therefore be shown as "4th worst" for Goals Scored and "4th best" for Goals Conceded. Currently, they are the other way round.
  4. Wasn't sure where to post this as I suspect it's a deliberate removal rather than a bug to report. Can I therefore check that this club selection screen has been removed for FM21? EDIT - it seems that it is still in the game but I can never see it so will raise it as a bug once I confirm it's not just me being a moron SECOND EDIT - nevermind, confirmed moron.
  5. Agree with this entirely The point of the in-game analysis, for me, was not to provide a realistic manager experience of stats available real time, but rather to inform the video game player of what was occurring between the highlights we choose to watch. As it is, without watching the full game in real time, there's no way to understand what is going on until half time. I understand the premise behind the move, but it's a mistake in my opinion and I hope one that will be reconsidered.
  6. Yes, definitely agree with this It would be good to advertise specifically for an attacking coach or scout with knowledge of South America, for instance
  7. Was 50/50 on whether to put this as a bug or a feature suggestion... fairly straightforward thing really - an open job advert is automatically withdrawn if someone is hired to fill that position. This is fine where there is only one position to fill, but shouldn't happen where there are multiple open positions - e.g. multiple scouts. Would be better if you were either given the option to remove or the game looked to see if there were still open positions of that type to fill.
  8. To make it less likely that you miss the chance to apply for an interesting job, it would be helpful to have some sort of alert system on either the Job Centre or Job Security screens which would push emails to your inbox when manager jobs became available. You could set filters on this similar to those that are on the 'apply for jobs' option when holidaying - i.e. receive notifications only for jobs in particular leagues, or top leagues, or top rep clubs. I think this currently happens only when you are linked with a job and I don't think you can implement a workaround using scre
  9. When the board gives you the option to select your own affiliate club, it would be very useful if the selection screen had more suitable columns for selection. i.e. when choosing an affiliate 'with a club with good youth recruitment' then the selection screen should show you the club's youth training facilities, youth recruitment and junior coaching; when choosing a club to loan players to it should show you the club's training facilities, maybe league reputation, media prediction for league finish, manager's preferred formation and playing style etc. With the current
  10. You can't select the attribute analysis octagon from the dropdown in the top picture? It looks fine on mine, with octagon showing up nicely so I wonder if you are right that it is a resolution thing. I have a 1440p 27" monitor, set to full screen, 125% zoom at 2560*1440 resolution. Shows per below.
  11. Hey , are you going to be posting here rather than at FM Now this year? Let me know if you come across any issues with the skin. I'm constantly bothering @wkdsoul with little bugs or error messages that I find. I'm sure he'll be absolutely delighted to have someone else hound him about it too
  12. An idea for future tactics amendments to the game... Currently inverted wingbacks are, understandably, coded such that they will not move inside if your tactic also utilises a player in the wide DM slot on that side - e.g. an inverted wingback at DL will not come into midfield if you use a DMCL. I think it would be sensible to make this restriction dependent on the role employed at DMCL/DMCR. For example, a Segundo Volante on attack will quickly vacate the DM space and move up the pitch. It makes perfect sense, therefore, to employ an inverted wingback to cover this space i
  13. Thanks Haiku, but as @wkdsoul says, he messaged me on twitter and has come up trumps with an FM19 version which has pretty much exactly what I was looking for
  14. Hi All, Recently I've been reading about a number of save games where the player has edited the skin to remove the attribute numbers and either replace them with coloured bars or even simply removed them altogether. Planning ahead to FM20, I'd like to do something similar but, not having the slightest scoob about skinning or graphics in general, wanted to check if this is possible. What I'd like to have is a skin with the following features: dark skin (like the default dark on FM19) no numerical reference to attribute values anywhere On the player profile screen, I
  15. That makes sense to me in terms of some countries being forced into spawning at older ages - as mentioned above, to comply with child labour laws. I'm more wondering about the logic in starting so young, where there is nothing to prevent it. Particularly in countries, like Germany, which prevent them playing until 18, I wondered what the point was and why they were set to spawn so young
