  1. It will say default on the left and by default it means the setting you have set at the top. So if you've set general training to 'very high' the default will be 'very high'. Hope that makes sense.
  2. Last year you only had to start in the National to get the trophy as CFA isn't playable first season.
  3. BiggusD is spot on mate. You should have either been pleased or encouraged them given your position and expectations etc. Dealing with complacency should be an issue for a relegation battler.
  4. I've had some great ones in my current save including coming back fro 3-1 down to Man City and winning 5-3 in my first season in the Premier League and that was in the middle of a really crap run of form with City being top of the league. A couple of season ago now so I can't take a screenie but my most recent one was this result against Blackburn when I was challenging for a CL spot (which I didn't quite make) and with two minutes left I was 2-0 down only to win 3-2 after 7 minutes of stoppage time. Got me some Fergie time.[/img]"]
  5. If you mean your youth intake then you can check them out when they arrive and offer them youth contracts individually or tell your assistant to sign the players he recommends. There will be a match between youth candidates and youth team a few days after they arrive and your assistant will recommend who to sign but you have to tell him to 'sign recommended players' after the match.
  6. Pace is a difficult one to get right because we all know players with pace IRL can cause all sorts of problems for defences even with little else to their game. Pace and good dribbling still rips up defences a little too much in game for me but it's definitely better than previous years. I'd like to see players not be quite as quick when running with the ball at their feet though personally.
  7. I'd definitely try going less attacking and grind out a couple of results, perhaps lots of teams are going defensive against you and going more defensive yourself may draw them out and allow you to get in behind them. If you feel you have players for a 4-4-2 then why not mix it up and maybe start with 4-4-2 and make sure you have the players on the bench to switch back to 4-5-1 if that doesn't work. Maybe a team meeting telling them they've been fantastic all season and they can get promoted should they keep it up a day or two before a match. If the pitches are generally poor perhaps going more direct in your approach may help. If you want specific tactical help then get over the tactic forum and you'll find help for sure.
  8. Yeah, very annoying. The worst for me is the stupid co-own offers in Italy, they're relentless.
  9. Yeah that's right, it's the level of investment that goes into recruiting for your academy and doesn't require any building of facilities. Junior coaching is exactly the same and will upgrade immediately.
  10. I won Serie A six seasons in a row and managed two Champions leagues using a flat 4-4-2 almost exclusively. It is most certainly not dead.
  11. I've gone home to Leicester City. It's usually my first save but I decided to go for a challenge first this year after enjoying it so much last year. Will probably try a new challenge in the new year at some stage.
  12. In all honesty my tactics are pretty basic. I'm not sure whether it is because I started the save on the BETA or if its just because the AI still can't provide a long term challenge but since the last ME update the game has become very easy.
  13.[/img]"]END OF CAREER UPDATE Marty Marciano retires from football News coming out of Cosenza this morning indicates that World class manager has taken the decision to step down from his role as club manager and retire from the game. Marty has been at Cosenza for sixteen years and has led the club from the bottom league to the top and added a number of trophies along the way, including two Champions League titles and no less than six consecutive Serie A titles. In a brief statement Marty told the press "I feel I've achieved all I can in the game and am looking forward to watching a younger man take the team in a new direction. My time at the club has been a wonderful experience and I'd like to thank the club, the players and, of course, the fans for making my time here so enjoyable". Although not mentioned by Marty it is believed that the inability of rival clubs to provide a satisfactory challenge has prompted this shock decision.

  14. No, it's been sorted mate.
  15. Well I never expected that with a fully home grown team after selling over £150m worth of talent.[/img]"] I'll do my update tomorrow.
