  1. I'd say a lot of that is caused by the fact the two centre halves often don't 'talk' to each other. They tend to run on their own line which means if an attacker gets past one, the other doesn't move in behind him to cover.
  2. I'm not talking about goals scored from it. I would probably only see 5-6 goals from it, but I see the mishit cross being tipped over by a 'keeper at least 40-50 times a season. Which would work to be around once a game as a minimum.
  3. One of my absolute pet hates was how often I see the "he didn't mean it" mishit cross on FM16. In lower leagues it is literally once a game at least. Then my real life team (Forest Green) scored in the 91st minute in this exact scenario! Regardless, I am back on FM15 until '17 is out and I am enjoying it more. FM16, while having its positive points, has been just a massive source of frustration for me, and almost all of it is down to the types of goals scored and buggy defensive movements/reactions.
  4. I would say in general the left back position is traditionally a more attacking one than right back.
  5. How it is portrayed graphically also adds to the feeling the overlap is difficult to stop, IMO. Sometimes you'll see a full back start his overlap from 15-20 yards behind your ML/R, run past him and into open space, while the ML/R literally stands still on the spot, seemingly not even noticing it or making any attempt to track back. I assume this is meant to portray a less defensively-inclined winger but it looks ridiculous.
  6. Yep, ditto. There is a weird quirk where strikers through on goal stop once they get the ball, allowing chasing defenders to catch up and block the shot.
  7. It feels like there are a few things in the game which balance out the shocking defensive reactions. 'keepers saving shots from point blank range is one. strikers jerking back when through on goal is another, as is the tendency for players to hold off shooting until the defender is standing DIRECTLY in front of them.
  8. Playing in the Conference, and I've just sold a promising 19-year-old centre half to Norwich in the Championship. Next thing my captain comes to me asking why I sold him, but there's no option along the lines of "I couldn't deny him the opportunity". Notwithstanding that no non-league player would even ask this, it is frustrating how often the most logical chat option isn't available. My options are I'll replace him with someone better (unlikely), he didn't fit into my tactical plans (not true), he was earning too much (not true) or he was inconsistent and we needed to cash in (not true).
  9. Surely including a "can be sacked after a board takeover" tickbox when you start the game would be a good solution? Those who don't want to potentially risk a long term save being ruined don't have to, those who want it there due to realism can. Everyone wins.
  10. "I'm sure you'll want me for something else soon" (Laugh track followed by applause)
  11. It means he was poached before he appeared in your intake.
  12. Ditto when you go from part time to full time, and players who have recently signed new part time deals won't enter into new contract discussions, so you can't offer them full time terms.
  13. The try to convince a player to join you chat is very limited and could be fleshed out a lot more, agree. It's basically just click on an option and hope the player goes "oh that sounds good" without any context. It is a newish feature though so plenty of scope.
  14. Sounds like he doesn't think he is good enough for your first team and doesn't want to play for your B team, so would rather hold out for an offer from a less reputable league where he will play in the first team. Not unreasonable tbh.
  15. I think, due to very passive defending in and around the six yard box (and probably limited animations), there are probably a few too many chances from point blank range, which means some of them need to be saved.
