  1. This is one of the many questions about the vague inner-workings of Football Manager that I expect many of us have had. To what extent do the players affect each other by their mere presence? Obviously we all know that having preferred personnel or friends together in a team would have a positive result - maybe an increase in team morale or team cohesion. So we could then assume that a negative interaction between players, be it a failed tutoring attempt, or personal differences, would have the reverse effect - a decrease in morale or cohesion. But what about an instance where you're playin
  2. I'm not sure if you can assign this to individual players, but 'Look for overlap' for your AML/AMC would help get your LWB on the ball higher up the pitch more often.
  3. BiggusD, as far as Papadopoulos goes (I assume that's who you meant), I think you'd be pleasantly surprised by how much he can improve. All those mental stats you mentioned reach 14-17. Those coupled with his immense aggression, bravery, strength, tackling etc, make him possibly the best young defender in the game. I had him in my fluent-expressive-short passing Barcelona team, he was excellent. Give him a try. Oh and as for finding players, it's Every Which Way But Loose. I watch the dvd and browse the search list. For some reason Clint Eastwood and his orangutan brings the wonderkids floodi
  4. This looks excellent. Good work. Just post a link to the file-hosting site that you upload it to.
  5. According to the estimated income it looks like home games bring in more money. The positive difference between the gate receipts and the fee to the opposing team is usually more than the fee you'd receive from playing away.
  6. Hello fellow managers. My question is this: What team can I go where I will actually be forced to source players from the lesser leagues around the world? I mean, I have started many games with the aim of trying to replicate real life transfer behaviour with teams such as Rangers/Celtic or some of the smaller English teams in scouring eastern Europe and such likes for cheap but potentially first team players, but the trouble is that although there are many good low reputation players out there (in countries like Denmark, Norway, Czech Republic etc) and they are on low wages, they are also u
  7. Just played my first ever season of FM 13, with Southampton. Ricky Lambert up top as the lone striker; Target Man on support, he scored 23 goals and surprisingly had very few assists, only 3. I played a 4-2-3-1 formation with the AM and Wingers all on attack. (And a BWM and AP in the centre.) I was surprised to see this many goals coming from a player with 10/11 for pace, given how previous FM's have usually favoured a pacy front man. But after seeing how effective he was I am constantly on the lookout for a similar player, which has led me towards the likes of Stracquilarsi and Andy Carroll.
  8. You should also make the player's loyalty 20, with his team as his favourite club. Also make his ambition 1. Then he won't be looking to move anywhere too soon. Not sure if this affects the way he plays, but I don't think it does. Then to be really sure, and if you're not going to be doing the contract thing, you could add a shed load of high reputation teams - the teams that may look to buy him in the future, as his disliked clubs, all at maximum value of course.
